    what is doom?

    Doom is really slow metal. I just love it. Sleep could be considered Doom. Some other bands to check out are: My Dying Bride, Cathedral, Candlemass, Count Raven (the lead singer sounds almost exactly like Ozzy Osbourne), Shape Of Despair, Katatonia, and Electric Wizard.

    Actually that would be anti-scene.... ask most people who truly love music. they don't give a shit about sub-genres. Music is music.... listen to what you like because you like it, not because it belongs to a certain genre or sub-genre

    i'm not saying you should listen to music because it's in a subgenre.

    it's just a way to classify music, it means nothing.

    Why does it have to be classified as something? It doesn't.

    hello pedro Guest

    it helps...i don't like ALL hardcore, i tend to favor metalcore as its subgenre. i don't want to go digging through tons of albums that have a totally different style of hardcore when i can just look in one sub genre and take it from there.

    classify and in describe the sound, not classify as in official classification.

    ummmm... are you that ignorant? if there were no subgenres for example, how would you tell someone that you like Black Metal as upossed to Death Metal? Theres an obvious difference and with out clarification how would you communicate that?

    What is Swedish-influenced under? Like Prayer For Cleansing? It's between that and grind. But I listen to it all.

    Death/grind without a doubt, though black metal comes as a close second. I've been listening to alot of folk/viking stuff recently, some of it is really good, I urge all curious people to check out Bergtatt by Ulver and Autumn aurora by Drudkh.

    Genre's and sub-genre's are merely tools that are useful for describing music, and they are very useful for that. But they are not set in stone, and there are many bands out there that defy the concept of genre's due to there varying influences.

    A lot of Swedish metal bands are melodic death, at least thats what sweden is well known for. Prayer For Cleansing are considered melodic death with a heavy thrash influence I believe.

    I picked death/grind, but I listen to a lot of stuff. That's just what the majority of my cd's are. Meshuggah is one of my favs. Cannibal Corpse, Nile, Suffocation, God Dethroned, Hate Eternal, Mastodon, Lamb of God, Dillinger Escape Plan....bla bla bla.
