Death Metal

Okay, so what do you consider true Metal and what is considered blasphemy in your eyes?

My thoughts, Cannibal Corpse, Love em! Dimmu Borgir, Devil Driver, Mushroom Head, Demon Hunter.

Blasphemy? To me is saying that Marilyn Mansion is hardcore will get a whippin', saying that hair glam rock from the eighties is metal, though some of it is great stuff, please I ask people kindly... do not compare Slaughter to King Diamond.

What do you listen to and what do you consider Metal?

I don't care much for labels or sub-genres, but some of the bands I listen to that might be considered some form of metal include Between the Buried and Me, Dillinger Escape Plan, Strapping Young Lad, Dog Fashion Disco, Dimmu Borgir, Lamb of God, Emmure, killwhitneydead, etc. some old school like Pantera, Sepultura, Anthrax, Megadeth (mostly Rust in Peace), Metallica (pre-"black album"). I like a LOT of gothic & symphonic metal as well. Just discovered a band called Born of Osiris - I think I like them too.


Im just wondering what they are going to call the next type of metal when they run out of tough sounding, death dealing names. . . . . . . . . . ooooooo. . . . . so tough. . . . so spooky. . . . . . lol.

Well if we're talking about shite like Between the Buried and Me, System of a Down, Dillinger Escape Plan, Avenge Sevenfold, Dimmu Borgir, Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage, Cradle of Filth or any other piece of trendy sold at Hot Topic, We should just call it POSER-CORE, because thats what it is.

@ cthulu: I haven't even seen a Hot Topic in many years, so I guess "poser metal" would just be another genre I'm blissfully ignorant of. I just listen to whatever sounds good and/or has meaning to me.

@ klownz: I agree with you about vocalists, to a point. I think every style of singing has its place to match the mood of the music, and I love my share of sick demonic vocals. But constant screaming or growling, or constant anything gets old after a while.
