What is your favorite sub-genre? Mine is Doom.
no way i could only choose one
DEFINATELY death metal and grindcore.
EDIT - Where's metalcore?
i dont really know the classes of metal. i just listen to all of it.
Children of Bodom
dear gawd they rule all!
what is doom?
i like stuff like sleep, high on fire, eyehategod, buzz-oven but don't care for the anathema's of the world.
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.
you are missing progressive metal
subgenres suck. listen to music
too scene for sub genres, are we?
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.
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.
I like almost all thrash, but I don't pick music by subgenre
i kinda like it all
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?
but digging through those albums you might find something you like
children of bodom, in flames and dimmu borgir all rock
no idea who therion is though...
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.
