What's the difference? I really only like the type of metal that has a soothing vocalist, with a little screamo thrown in, in certain sections. If you know what I mean.

Metal is sorta the entire thing - Metalcore, Thrash Metal, Heavy Metal, Melodic Death Metal, Black Death Metal etc. are all the sub-genres...

A metal thread! Woot! I run most of the gambit of metal, really. Classic stuff from the 80s, the really heavy death metal from Scandinavia, and the American metalcore of today, with some other stuff that I can't quite classify (e.g. Slipknot and System of a Down) thrown in for variety.

*sits and waits for Beatles fans to come tell us our music sucks*

I think that's why I like SOAD so much. You don't really know what's going on sometimes, you just know it's GOOD.

And I think it would be fair if they came, since we did kinda tell them we hated their music...

I hear metal from when I was 8 years old, when I bought Iron Maiden's Powerslave.
In 1986...
I listen to whatever kind of metal, but I prefer extreme metal, and technical stuff.
I am listening to BEHEMOTH - Evangelion, right now, just after MEGADETH - Endgame.
Behemoth's new records is a terrible blast, it's like a panzer tank crushing on your head all guns blazing.
I really suggest it.
But you need some guts to stand it. :p

I'm a sucker of metal with a collection of more than 2800 original CDs

i suppose at least some of Nine Inch Nails would qualify as metal.

i've been to 10 of their shows, and i just went to see their last concert ever on thursday. it was AWESOME.

they played Wish with Dillinger Escape Plan. absolutely amazing. so much chaos on stage. the best was when one guy picked up the bass drum, smashed it onto the stage, and the drummer just keeps playing without it. some HD videos are posted on youtube.

I saw something up there about Seether. Their first few albums were amazing (Remedy has to be one of my favorite songs of theirs) but the latest record kinda fell flat.

Tool is pretty good, I like them. :)


St Anger was awful, Load + ReLoad had some good stuff (Fuel, King Nothing, The Memory Remains etc.) But DM is great imo.

I agree, although there were more good songs from Load & Reload then just that. Like Slither, Fixxxer, The Unforgiven 2, etc.

They're not bad, I use to listen to them, but I don't really consider them metal.

More so just Rock.


I like bands like. . Symphony X, Dream Theater, Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Tool, and so on.

Right now I'm like listening to only Symphony X and Dream Theater.

Progressive Metal = <3 :)

Know what I really hate, you guys? These "metalcore" bands who just kinda go into the studio and bang on the drums while pulling their guitar stings until they break with a guy with a mic growling nothing at all and then calling it music. I'm sorry, but it sounds more like retarded monkeys broke into the studio after hours. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not hating on metalcore (if I could figure out what it actually is) just certain bands. Great example would be The Chariot. It's just noise. Great example of metalcore that's good would be August Burns Red. But, still, at the end of the day, I'll take my metal heavy, yet melodic. Something I can headbang to or just sit and enjoy if the mood strikes me. That, or Pantera. Love them.

By the way, love the new sig, maid3n.

Alex™
09-24-2009, 11:20 PM

What you're describing sounds like Death Metal, which I too think is garbage.

You said The Chariot huh.

Is this the band you're talking about?

YouTube - The Chariot - Daggers


Yea that's pretty bad.

But this is even worse.

YouTube - Thrown To Belial - Celestial Decapitation


But oddly enough some people think it's great. For me, I like to be able to tell what the lyrics are when listening, not just hear gibberish coming out of what sounds like some type of demon troll.

Then again, I love Slipknot's brand of metal, as well. Plus, there's Iron Maiden, who I love so much. Really, there's lots of metal that I like. My dad just likes stuff along the lines of Maiden and Disturbed (two different lines, by the way) but he can't stand the heavier stuff with the screaming. To each his own, right? (Unless they're Beatles fans...)

If it's like 100% screaming it's either Screamo or Death Metal.

When it's some type of grungy type singing that you can't understand like something like the video I showed then it's probably Death Metal.

Slipknot's not death metal though, but they do scream a lot. They're just Heavy Metal.

Amon Amarth you say. . . *looks up*. . . yeah they're Death Metal.

I too don't like stuff with screaming.

Just to clarify.

"Death metal is an extreme subgenre of heavy metal. It typically employs moderate tempos, heavily distorted guitars, deep growling vocals, blast beat drumming, and complex song structures with multiple tempo changes."

Just look out for the "deep growling vocals", that's an instant giveaway lol.

dandygandy2704
09-25-2009, 11:18 PM
Screamo isn't a real genre of metal, you know... Most likely a band someone calls "screamo" is just metalcore. What I like so much about death metal is how demanding all the writing is, you can tell everyone in those bands have tons of talent. Same can be said for thrash metal.

I didn't say it was a real Genre, but it could be what is considered "screamo".

Oh you like Death Metal, I thought you were making fun of it, like I was.

In my opinion, they put their talent and take it overboard, and then they have some idiot growling in to a mic singing about god knows what.
