The Metal ThreadWARNING!:
- This is not the metal bar.
- This is not a bar at all.
- This is the metal thread reborn, like the days of old. We're gonna talk about metal here.
- I had to argue long and hard with Pixie to get even this much, and I will go straight to an admin to keep it clean if I have to. This thread is for the Metal Heads.
- There will be significantly less spamming, picture posting, and general 4Chan references. None of those things are metal, and therefore, they have no place in this, The Metal Thread.
- If Pixie thinks we're out of line, that's it. This is our last chance. If you blow it, I'mna come to your house and stab you in the neck with a cactus. Repeatedly. Don't Blow it.
- I call on all the real Metal Heads out there lurking to come back and help me keep this thread clean. Pixie and I called a truce, and the mods are willing to help us keep this running.

Don't know about u but i think there needs to be more metal on the radio. There's not enough. I'm sick of hearing freakin Nickelback all the time, we need more metal!

Metal is hard to listen to. It's aggressive, fast, and best understood at loud volumes. I'm not trying to be elitist or nothing, but most people can't handle it. Also, Metal tends to have very anti-social song matter. It's difficult to find sponsors that will advertise on a metal channel, and radio thrives on it's sponsors.

It's a shame that only one of your bands is an actual metal band.

But, I'm not even going to play this stupid game anymore.

Are you kidding?

I thought this would be heaven for you. A thread that is purely metal, without regurgitating /b/.

Also, I'm sick of people listing Atreyu as a metal band.

1) Atreyu Nu-Metal. Most metal heads distance themselves from Nu-Metal, because it's trendy. Metal is anything but trendy
2) As I Lay Dying See Above
3) Arch Enemy A worthy choice.
4) Unearth I don't know much about these guys, but i'm told they're Nu-Metal
5) Drop Dead, Gorgeous Can't rightly say they aren't metal, cus i don't know who they are

I'll agree with Slayer, Metallica and Pantera, but the other two not so much

Nu-metal has a big hip-hop influence.

Most of his bands are hardcore kids with leftover Slayer riffs.

You're making a classic mistake. Alice in Chains is hard rock. Jerry Cantrell's bluesy style isn't really fast enough to be metal (or heavy enough to make up for the lack of speed).

I used to make the same mistake with Faith No More. People might have called them Funk Metal, and really, all Nu-Metal owes them a huge debt for "Epic", but they were ultimately just a rock band. Me liking them AND being a metal head doesn't change what they were.

Selling out? Wouldn't i have to actually make something to sell out? The way i see it, I get to play babysitter now. I'm not sure where that makes me a sell out, but you're entitled to your own opinion.

I'm just going by 'Encyclopaedia Metallum'.

I guess if you don't think Alice in Chains is metal enough to be in my Top 5, I'll substitute it for 'Death' or 'Obituary'.

You're not wrong, those bands are Nu-Metal. Metal is Metal. However, Nu-Metal has about the same reputation as Glam Metal had back in the 80's. Ratt and Cinderella might have had some tasty licks, but the metal community in general shunned them because they took metal and infused it with some trend (in that case, women's clothes. In Nu-Metal's case, it's a hip-hop influence) that they, the metal community at large, disagreed with.

I can't argue with those guys. They're even pickier than I am. If they say AiC is metal, then let it be so.

They even have 'Soundgarden' listed as metal. Aparrently they were a big inspiration for modern 'Stoner Metal'.

Their early work was much more metal than Black Hole Sun. Chris Cornell used to be quite the screamer. Whenever i hear Audioslave now, it makes me wince, cus he's lost all the singing talent he had.
