    ..in music is there, no matter how awful it might be for some. Also Trash, i think you might like this fb page - https://www.facebook.com/ChristiansAgainstSlipknot, Though the page is really just against metal in general, not just Slipknot. You can tell the page is trolling and much of it is false.

    Machine Head did experiment with nu metal for a little while but decided to go back to a more 'metal' style after Supercharger. Either the band is influenced by their fans, listening to the negativity and dislike for nu metal or the band themselves wanted to stay closer to the metal style. Seems some metalheads don't really care about creativity. Amon Amarth for an example has been writing similar material for so many years. Some artists, will just stick to what they've been known to write. Metal has evolved like any other music genre and there are purists of any genre, not just metal, i've seen a profile recently saying that music is dead and won't scrobble music anymore. Take a look at BABYMETAL. I thought i had seen everything metal has to offer then the Japanese comes up with a metal idol. No matter how awful that band might sound in the metal realm, to me it's a metal parody. Then you have Miley Cyrus riding naked on a wrecking ball. I'd say creativity..

    (cont.) Katatonia's later work is creative yet goes more towards the Rock border than the Metal border. Later Deftones & the shoegaze inspired Dreariness are other examples. You can't have it both ways - it can't be tr00 and stick to your rule book of Metal and always be creative. The well of riff creativity and genre fusions dried up along time ago, at least in your strict Metal world.

    Seriously though, Robb Flynn is so tied up on the classics himself and then expects some creativity by trying to emanate them? Comparing the next Machine Head album to Queen and "The Blackening" to "Master of Puppets." Then Flynn expects 'creativity' when MH stretch riffs out for as long as possible and dub it epic? The same riff / a similar riff in a different key and copying of measures are found ALL over Metal - Stritborg's "Grief and Trepidation" is Burzum's - "Spell of Destruction", Happy Day's "Happy Days" is an Alcest rip off (showing that even modern, creative, 'hip' Metal bands are being leached off.) Not to mention the Djent scene. An over saturated scene is more to blame than Robb's points. Yet, any electronic/Industrial influence would equally be laughed at by Flynn for being untr00 - such as Psyclon Nine's light sprinkles of Black Metal in their polished Industrial sound. North American Dubstep is extremely heavy but fusing it with Rock is forbidden & hated (Korn)

    Society has become a soulless entity, it isn't just the music business, i wonder if the people running these venues care about the band making fans happy or that Youtube doesn't give you the full experience of seeing the band live and labels care more about profit than letting people experience the music. Labels didn't try to destroy radio or tape recorders and force people to buy their albums but try to scapegoat people that download music when they want to try the album out. Just like the music industry, the values people once had or what your trying to hold on to is coming to an end and the mindless don't even care. Heck people are protesting that the minimum wage goes up, yet they stopped caring that gas has reached $4 a gallon. Society has been going downhill, heck they have smartphones and ipads, they could be learning something. You can't learn anything by reposting cat pictures, posting the food you are about to eat and telling people you're at the mall with your friends.

    Generally when someone asks me what kind of music i listen to, metal would be the appropriate term imo, as heavy metal is it's own genre and i don't listen to just 'one' sub genre in metal. I use precise sub genre terms if someone already listens to metal and is already somewhat familiar with the subgenres. I couldn't imagine telling someone that you listen to black, death, power, heavy, thrash, ect.. metal though, i mean what else do you categorize all the sub genres under (besides heavy metal)?

    "Most metalheads use "heavy metal" to refer to the original style and "metal" as an umbrella for all the different sub-genres including the original style." I beg to differ. I believe people use umbrella terms for bands that are something different from what they usually listen to and they are no "experts". People who are really into a genre will usually use precise tags. Or troll tags.

    "Mike Patton" credibility, gone. Good job.

    september 2013
  • redgrave9

    You can look at the Mike Patton interview where he says he had to intentionally tone down his style just so his score wouldn't detract from the actual film itself.

    september 2013
  • redgrave9

    That's a pretty good point, but film scores are created intentionally to compliment the actual movie they're made for.

    september 2013
  • whiskeyhammer95

    v film score composers would disagree. Shouldn't you be sperging out on your RYM lists or something?

    september 2013
  • redgrave9

    Even minimalist music has subtlety. A good artist doesn't create an entire concept just to be put as background noise.

    "If you listen to an album because you like the mood and don't care about artistic direction the band wrote it for, you have poor taste" what is ambient music?

  • redgrave9

    You just repeated exactly what you said in the last post but 10 more lines of it. How are you getting this emotional out of a normal disagreement?

    september 2013
  • Trash73

    Huh? I gave many examples that backed up my opinion you fucking idiot. For starters I mentioned the pace. There's a reason why Doom Metal bands play slow and Thrash Metal bands play fast - the mood is drastically affected by a change of pace. Why do you think sforzandos are used? To give an immediate, often shocking effect. There are many, many examples of musical notation that effects the pieces mood. It is actually you who have not justified your opinion - your entire screed could be paraphrased to 'music is much deeper than just the mood and if you only interpret it as simple as that then you have bad taste.' Where is the logic behind that? You're a frigging dumbass. Not to mention I stated that is not only what I get out listening to the music I enjoy (read the second sentence of my last shout again.) Finally, of course mood is the most important quality to extreme music - that is why they use the distortion, amps, pedals and instrument technique they use.

    september 2013
  • redgrave9

    All I got from that emotional, jumbled abomination of a post is that you're clearly insecure over someone disagreeing with you and that you have no clue how to back up your opinion. Mood is the most basic part of a song or record. If that's all you get out of interpreting a classical or black metal piece, then you have poor taste. If you can't get anything out of an extreme metal song other than that it explores extreme moods since that's "the most important quality", then you're just showing that you only stick to the surface when it comes to appreciating it.
