The problem with the whole "metal" thing is that it is too set and too strict, that it is hard for anything to be "accepted" as metal by many people. people have different tastes, likes, and dislikes. please consider that the next time someone tries to shove their view of what metal is or the next time you try to shove your view of what metal is down someone's thoat.

Just like what you like and just be. dont step on other people to make your view known. there are different types of metal and so there are many places for these artists/bands to fit in and be categorized.

Sorry hotdog963al I haven't touched a guitar in 14 years, probably would be rusty as hell. Last tune I've played was Iron Maiden's Running Free lol. But I'll pick up another Gibson Flying V from back in my days. If they still make them lol.

yeh i know its a pretty good time of the year so many new albums coming out that i have intrest to, ive already picked up the devildriver album, not such a big fan but its not to bad. the songs are all kinda the same just heavy riffs that make your head explode which i like but its to much the same. as for fear factory, i always listen to there albums but i find there riffs to simple and most are just power cords, better then most crap anyway, i like demanafacture. everyones been telling me about soulfly but beleive it or not i havnt heard a single song by them yet il pick up there new album when it comes out. and im about to get chimaira, by legal means :shifty: . and children of bodm, cant ****ing wait

I argued that they are hard rock as opposed to rock or metal, in my view hard rock combines bits of rock and metal :/

yeh it could possibly, i find the vocals are heavier in hard rock, there louder and more screamish kinda, were as rock such as hendrix etc. were more lighter in there vocals kinda like they were talking melodicly and campared to metal the guitars nto quite heavy enough to be up there but its again a bit heavier then rock.

In metal I find that the sound is really heavy and the singers rarely sing, they just scream and shout, with AC/DC this doesn't happen.

In your post you trash the bands we listen to yet you mention none that you listen to yourself. Metal has alot of sub-catagories ie. Death Metal, Thrash Metal and nearly all the bands mentioned in this topic fall into one or another category.

Not to mention your lame attempt at tagging CKY as a skater emo-band, do you even know what emo is? Have you even listened to CKY or heard the lyrics? None of their songs refer to what you would call emo (just assuming on your poor judgement of what Emo is).

I love people like you who trash bands you haven't even listened to just to make yourselves feel big. You once again associate CKY with Bam even though the band has nothing to do with Bam, he just uses a couple of their tracks as fillers for his videos. Bam does not play in the band. The band also has a good idea on what is actually happening to the music industry and their trying to change that.

Deron Miller from CKY is more metal than your poser ass will ever be. His involved in the DEATH tribute project (they suck because you don't know them), got personally asked to open for Metallica and Guns N Roses and is respected by people like Dave Mustaine. You'd understand if you've seen him play live. He can shred like a mother****er.

I doubt you have ever heard of Pestilence or Cynic either. I guess they suck then.

God you elitist tards **** me off.

El Hot Sauasage, go listen to Blink182 and the latest Limp Bizkit CD.

The problem is that people will post about a band and then someone will come on and say that "they are not metal". It is too wide a spectrum. Also, you would also have to have a Rap forum, Hip-Hop forum etc.

To those that said Quorthon 'has a good voice', that should be 'he "had" a good voice'.

Hendrix' style was hard blues, not rock.he once said 'It's not hard to play blues, but it's hard to feel it' Anyway, the genre is unimportant.What counts is the music itself.Don't draw borders 'round music and don't try to fit it into cathegories - it's art ... it's free.If you don't get what am trying to say ... you're either too young or too dump to understand.

Iron Maiden, Opeth and Dream Theater are some of my favorites.

The thing i love most about metal is the mixing of really heavy riffs with lots of melody, it just kicks you in the face.

I have to get it these days too.

The first time I've heard 'The Gunslingere' I knew this album is going to be as great as the first one, if not better.

The album's title is 'Touched By The Crimson King', for those who are interested.

Too bad that a new Blind Guardian album seems so far away.They'll release one next year probably :pinch:

I just now bought "Ashes of The Wake" by Lamb Of God. IMO it's their best album. Hmm what else, there is so much metal we could discuss in here. Can't wait for the new Children of Bodom album to come out.
