Praise Heavy Metal!

:iconmarioluigi96:
MarioLuigi96 Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2013
Don't you just love metal? Actual instruments, lyrics not afraid to speak their mind, numerous awesome sub genres, songs with real emotion, cool album covers,the ability to make you headbang even if you don't want to, etc.

I just can't thank it enough. Music has changed my life, and has changed the lives of many others around the world.

That metal prevails, even with all the undeserved bad press it gets, and with Simon-Mother-Fucking-Cowell telling people that they want to listen to vomit inducing pop 'music' instead of real music is amazing. It shows how, even amongst all the arguing, the metal community won't give up, and pull together when needed. And also that we all love each other really. Awww....:cuddle:

So turn up the speakers, throw some devil horns, headbang until you need a new neck off and join me in praising metal- the greatest genre of music in the world! :headbang:

My fave bands:
Periphery
DevilDriver
Animals As Leaders
Meshuggah
Slipknot
Bloodbath
AGHAST!
The Sword
Maximum The Hormone
Blotted Science
Five Finger Death Punch
Machine Head
Upon a Burning Body
System Of A Down
Mastodon
Crossfaith (anyone else know them?)
Karydbis

Who are your favourite bands and why?

Of course it's real music- all music is 'real music': Rap, Classical, Metal, Jazz,Electronic, Pop, Opera,Country, etc. It doesn't matter if you like it or not- music is music.

But, I don't see how you can insult people that you don't know based entirely on what kind of music they listen to.

For example, I think the music you linked me to was utter shit, but I don't think you are an idiot or a 'barbarian' for liking it, I respect the fact you like it, and it doesn't change my opinion of you.

And I would also like to know how metal isn't music, because I'm sure most people, even those who don't like it agree that it is a form of music. Stop being so ignorant.

Well, you made me feel very stupid :D
I dunno, I just get pissed off with people that do actually have that opinion, so I assumed you really did too. At least you have a sense of humour, cause I apparently don't!
Sorry dude. :)

Strapping Young Lad
Devin Townsend
Fintroll
Korpiklaani (saw them live a few weeks ago)
Slayer
Megadeth
Black Sabbath
Iron Maiden
Amon Amarth
Blind Guardian
Corrosion of Conformity
Children of Bodom
Alestorm, to name a few

I like metal because it's raw, primal, and fun. Metalheads also tend to be the nicest people you can come across in the music scene. The arrangements of metal can be very complicated with some bands, like Meshuggah, even using maths to come up with songs, which is interesting. Also, there is a lot of philosophy behind it, namely nihilism. :shrug:

I'm more of a classic metal guy, stuff like Megadeth and Judas Priest. But then again I like all sorts of stuff across the spectrum of rock music.

I like metal. It's not the main genre I listen to nowadays (mainly an industrial/alt rock person myself), but I do enjoy it. :D

Some bands I like include:

- Metallica
- Megadeth
- Pantera
- Ministry
- Slayer
- Celtic Frost
- Iron Maiden
- Children of Bodom
- Therion
- Nightwish
- Cryptopsy

and if you're willing to consider nu-metal/alternative metal

- KoRn
- Deftones
- System of a Down
- Tool
- Coal Chamber
- Disturbed
- Fear Factory
- Rammstein

and here are a few good bands/artists that aren't specifically metal, but they've done some good metal songs:

- Nine Inch Nails
- KMFDM
- Marilyn Manson
- Alice in Chains

Truthfully, I listen to nu/alternative metal a lot more than traditional metal, though Metallica seems to be the exception as it's the one band on this list I've listened to the most! :la:

OK, You're gonna have to explain to me what all this stuff about Hot Topic is :-?. We don't have it here in England, so I don't really get why everyone hates it, but which of the bands I listed would you consider the 'Hot Topic' bands?

Anyways, I will admit most of the bands you listed are ones I have heard of, but have never listened to. You seem to like black metal and classic metal, so even though those genres aren't really my cup of tea, it's good to see a metal fan anyway.

Metal, now that's REAL music :D
Nothing beats the sound of a screaming guitar...

Screaming guitars are pretty annoying out of context. If the entirety of Hell Awaits consisted of no instrumentation aside from atonal King/Hanneman leads, it would be boring.

Well, I won't try to convert you or anything, but you probably assume metal is a load of stupid noise. Some genres are, but listen to these two for a few minutes. You can at least appreciate the talent it takes to play.

The first one was pretty cool (although a bit too dark), but the second one was just funny. I couldn't help but laugh at the guys. :lmao:

I guess I enjoyed the videos. Thanks. :XD:
