    Bashing all things mainstream is just as much sheep behaviour as only listening to mainstream stuff. If not more. [2]

    @super-goomba Some people like to keep it simple. Doesn't mean they know nothing about metal.

    Yeah, anyone half-serious about tagging will use the most specific possible tags (OK, maybe not the MOST, but certainly not merely "metal" or "jazz" or "rock").

    The interesting fact is that people who bother tagging more "serious" metal bands aren't tagging them metal, but with some more accurate tags. And of course then, the only people who think "metal" is a relevant tag are people who know less about it (thus listening to mainstream/questionable things).

    True enough, I can't really complain too much about Rush's 80s output overall. Their early 80s stuff was quite good, while their late 80s stuff was quite bad.

    Rush's 80s stuff was pretty decent though

    In Flames sold their integrity to the almighty kashmoney. Trends are the easiest way for anyone to make a quick buck. If it's hip and cool with the kids, it's easy to just manufacture something that sounds like that and churn it out like there's no tomorrow. Kinda reminds me how many quality 70s prog rock bands such as Yes, Genesis and Camel became mindless pop rawk in the 80s. At least Camel got their heads out of their arse quickly.

    Possibly the reason In Flames is so awful now. I tolerated their changed direction previous to A Sense Of Purpose, but ASOP to the most recent effort, the band is shit now. People who jump on every new trend will generally accept every new album a band makes no matter how awful or untalented they've become. Not every new thing or trend is always good, if people jumping off a bridge or a cliff was a trend, there would be people following that. Too many sheep in the world today. That's not to say trends are not bad, but liking a trend because that trend exists doesn't mean it's good. Going back to IF, the band that created The Jester Race, Whoracle and Colony you would think people have standards when it comes to music, but it's clear to me with Siren Charms (or rather the 2 songs that were released) people don't really care about the music, they'd rather jump on the trend instead.

    I thought of this, when metal has to follow certain "rules". Though those rules don't make a band metal imo. If you follow the guidelines in metal-archives you shouldn't have a problem with figuring out what is metal. There's a lot of imitation or inferior artists, it isn't limited to metal either. Though some bands do it well, others are just bad carbon copies. If metal bands experimented more, if they choose to give up majority of the metal elements, there's a chance it won't be labeled metal. There is nothing wrong with experimentation or if something is non metal, it just most likely won't be labeled as metal.

    vv Metal has to follow certain "rules" (though there aren't really that many), whether you like it or not and doing new and "trendy" things just for the sake of doing new and "trendy" things reeks of hipster garbage. It has to honour it's influence from classical music, since metal draws most of it's influence from it. Metal also can't be literal, it must use the dark and/or fantastic themes and lyrics for symbolic purposes which in the end are used to reveal a truth in everyday life. That use of symbolism is something that metal shares with classical music and progressive rock. You can't call something metal just because it's instrumentation is heavy or brutal, there's more that needs to go into it.

    Fuck the purists [2] Metal's not some ancient ritual that has to be repeated a certain way in order to be "real." I don't trust anyone who makes statements like "*insert lyrical theme or mood of music* doesn't belong in metal." Frankly, I don't care about the history or traditions of the metal scene. When you start to focus on the social side of a music culture, it can really hinder progress in terms of musical innovation. Too many new metal bands don't care about progress. They just decide what past era to imitate. Hence why there are so many Slayer and Anthrax clones in thrash right now, or how damn near every band that calls itself "old school death metal" sounds like an inferior version of either Morbid Angel or Incantation. These bands seem to be trying to combat current trends by imitating older trends, which is entirely counterproductive. "Screw these trendy poseurs. Let's recycle old trends to prove how inferior new trends are. That'll show 'em."

    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)?

    april 2014
  • shalotka

    "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.
