Face it - neither of you is going to convince each other so just drop it.
No.

Also, arguing gives us a bad name...

but moshing-centric diluted bullshit doesn't? Okay pal.

Dude, the sub-genres come from having variety in music, not from elitists. You go and tell me post-metal and death metal and black metal and folk metal and doom metal are all the same thing and you're a fucking idiot. I mean, how hard would it be for you to find metalcore bands if there wasn't a word to differentiate them from 90% of metal?

Your points just keep going around in circles. And The Black Dahlia Murder are in no way metalcore... there's not one melodic vocal in ANY of their songs... that shows me that it's you that has no idea what metalcore is. You shouldn't take everything you copy and paste off Wikipedia as gospel. As for being limited, why post an ass load of videos for Pantera, White Zombie, Metallica, Drowning Pool, Pist.On, Cannibal Corpse and other older bands that people have seen a million times. I thought this thread was to discover NEW music. Again, it just seems a convient way for you to try and make a point.
Are you trying to tell me melodic vocals are one of the requisite elements of metalcore? That's fucking ridiculous. Metalcore is famous for its shitty screamers, not anything melodic. The bands you listed and are trying to claim aren't metalcore are, in fact, metalcore. This is audible to anyone that listens to a wide variety of metal. And I like how I'm an elitist who is responsible for the definition of every subgenre, but I don't know where the lines are, and you do. That's hilarious. Keep your shit in order.

You say it's a thread for finding new things, but here's the thing: I'm bitching because this is just becoming a big jerkoff fest for metalcore bands. That everyone already knows. Every band you've posted is well-known. Every band you've posted has some kind of commercial success.

Why is it that someone who wants the discussion to be about ALL metal in a thread about metal has to go make another thread, but when the thread is largely metalcore, that's fine?

And as far as pushing new music, I've still mentioned more NEW bands in a single post than you have.

Also, it's fucking stupid that you knock nu-metal and then bust my balls when I bash it. That's absolutely absurd.

How the fuck do you function in day to day life? I listed bands like KsE and 36 Crazyfists... THEY ARE METALCORE. I listed bands like Carnifex and As Blood Runs Blood... THEY AREN'T. Stop twisting my words and think before typing you fucking retard.

And Viking Music is all about ships... who gives a fuck, it's music. Shut up, stop being so fucking pretentious and just enjoy it.

Now, to get this thread back on track.......

It’s only a week now until the gig I’ve been waiting for since September. And it’s in Newcastle which is insane.

PARKWAY DRIVE



SUICIDE SILENCE



THE ACACIA STRAIN

Okay, I'll take that point too. All I was saying is arguing is the least harmful thing. I imagine people painting their faces and running around in the woods is also a turnoff. Point is, arguing isn't doing anything. Thanks for the help.

Oh, okay, that's how it is? "It's just music." I spend the vast majority of my spending money on music, everything I wear is music related, I spend tons of time pushing new music on people, but people who have tattoos relating to music get to tell me "it's just music"? Okay. Explain that.

ALL OF THE BANDS YOU LISTED ARE METALCORE YOU FUCKING IDIOT.

YOU CAN'T EVEN READ.

THEY'RE ALL METALCORE.

THINK BEFORE YOU TYPE.

WHY WOULD I BE TELLING YOU KSE AND 36 CRAZYFISTS ARE METALCORE.

THEY. ARE. ALL. METALCORE.

Did you get confused by me telling you the metalcore bands you've just discovered and don't think are metalcore have been enjoying commercial success for awhile now?

I don't know how that's relevant. I was saying what defines a genre, which you seem to be confused about. I don't know how melodic vocals got ANYWHERE NEAR a conversation about metalcore. I wasn't saying the screaming is good or bad, I was defining the genre. Yes, Viking metal usually involves longships. (By the way, I'm enjoying Mercyful Fate here just fine. Why would I be prevented from enjoying something I love because someone wants to say they saved my genre and then back out and say "it's just music"?)

Also, the pretentious thing? Nu-metal faggots said that too.

They also tried to claim they brought metal back too.

Don't say that shit.

I fully encourage stupid comments like these. It'll only keep this at the top of the page even longer.

no but really. to be fair, i'm the last person in the world that should be commenting on this thread as all the metal bands i've ever liked, i can count on one hand

that being said, the back-and-forth here reminds me of that part in 'high fidelity' when barry realizes that he's long since become the type of hardnosed, didactic genre cop that he resented in his youth and it breaks his heart in half

i say, take a page from the rap playbook: it is better to Congratulate than to Player-hate.

besides, really, all that metal shit sounds the same. /runs

Maybe it's because you have a knack for ruining these metal threads.

Don't carry on like a know-it-all ass and no one would have to say this shit.
