It's loud, angry, edgy music with no beat whatsoever.

Does anyone else think that somebody who doesn't even fully know anything about a genre should just shut their petty mouths? Yes? OK.

Why are you assuming he doesn't?

*reads OP*

Okay, well I see why.

OP: Well I dislike metal too, most of it is pretty shit. Beat is just a way measuring the "pulse" and time of music, pretty much every genre in popular music has it including metal.

You probably only know this edgy screamo music or whatever. You should give classic metal such as Iron Maiden or Dio a try or some power metal stuff such as Stratovarious.

@Turtles_Hunter The first video you posted sounds better than the screaming shit Jake always posts but the second video does sound noisy. To be honest I don't like any sub genre of metal.

When I listen to Afrobeat, Reggaeton, Reggae, Soca, Rap, Dancehall there is a beat that flows with the lyrics. In Dancehall and Soca the beat is actually given names where multiple artists can sing on it but the best ones are the ones where the vocals and the beat flow the best together. Rhythm to me doesn't seem important to metal. The instrumentals just seem to be background music to the vocals.

To be fair you've listed some really good genres there I can understand why you might find metal abit inferior but its probably just because people just seem to like to link the loudest most dense metal songs they can.
@Turtles_Hunter linked some good metal enjoyed alot of the songs.

I simply played that song because it proves how little knowledge you have about both metal, and music as a whole. You're literally the opposite of what is considered to be "musical". You have no sense of rhythm, melody, and you think that most of your favorite lyrics are philosophical, when in reality, it's just the same shit in life that we've all been through.

Another thing is, you say that metal has no rhythm (or that it's background music for the vocals), when actually it's the rhythm that's the most important and vital part of metal. The drums, bass, and rhythm guitar are what most musicians call "the rhythm section", but you probably didn't know that, and that's perfectly fine for someone who refers to the drums and bass as a "beat", because that's all they know. They don't know shit. And neither do you.

That song you posted doesn't have any good rhythm. Simply having drums or guitar doesn't make a good rhythm. No I don't. There are a lot of songs I listen to that don't have any philosophical meaning. LOL I'm not a rap elitist and I'm not even super into rap.

This is what I call good melody where there is not just drums and guitar and there is complete harmony between vocals and the beat.

No, you're not getting what I'm saying. Blood on the Dance Floor isn't even remotely close to metal, and you're right, it sucks. But you thought that it was metal music, so I just proved you wrong. You know NOTHING about music, at least, almost nothing. You've got some OK things about your musical knowledge, but man, you actually thought that Blood on the Dance Floor was supposed to be metal? That's just ignorance right there...

Hey, a lot of rap is really great, but if you're going to shit on metal, then research it before you decide to make yourself look stupid. It would be more logical for you to mock someone like Lil Pump instead.

@Jake Sorry but I just don't like metal . It's too rough for my ears. I find it hypocritical though how people here are always bashing rap and never say anything bad about metal when there are metal songs with just screaming and Rarararara like the ones you usually post to me. Metal doesn't have any great lyrics or anything either.

eh that's an exaggeration, although i'll admit the beat isn't as focal to it as pop or hip hop.

i'm pretty lukewarm on metal. some of the old school thrash stuff is really good. a lot of metal comes off as very cheesy/gratuitous to me though, especially the shredder stuff. there's only a few modern bands i like at all really. i mainly stick to punk for my edgelord music.

it's not my favorite genre, but i don't hate it. honestly i prefer alt rock music but i don't hate metal as a whole, i do think some of it is definitely not my style and i'm not exactly enthused by all of it, nor a hardcore fan, but like rap i think there's metal i like and metal i don't, metal i can tolerate- it comes down to who's doing it, though.

since it's not my fav genre i really have no strong opinion one way or the other, just a heart full of neutrality

what i really hate is musical elitism above all else, i rly do not care how much better someone thinks his taste is than mine, i don't believe in "artistic objectivity", i believe art, as a product and as a piece of art, is more subjective...

Well, music is besides poetry and painting the most wonderful kind of art.

Nightwish - Over the Hills And Far Away.

I know, it is Symphonic Metal, a crossover between metal and classic music. As you might know, Tarja Turunen (lead vocal 1996 - 2005) is a classical trained soprano singer.
So we come a long way from bands like Pantera (metal from Arlington), Metalica (California), very good old fashioned heavy metal by the way.

Music develops and never stands still, even if not liked, remember that some metal bands produced some awesome soundtracks for Anime.
You like the Anime "Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin"? The ED "A FAR-OFF DISTANCE" was made by Galneryus.

Galneryus is a good the keyword: one of the most successful power metal bands from Japan. Their music is an very good combination of symphonic-, speed- and power metal that come in together with the virtuosity of Suh`s guitar play. And on the other hand Sho`s extraordinary voice with the stable intonation fits perfectly into Genre and the music agreement.

My intention is not to moralize or instruct; more interested in sharing with you some information that you might not have had an opportunity to consider, and which might be helpful to you.

Oh my god, the amounts of nonsense and complete ignorance are impressive.


How can someone say metal (as if it were a generic genre nonetheless) doesn't follow any rhythm? Or doesn't have any structure, or the instruments play no part whatsoever.

In various instances there has been shown a connection between classical music and metal. Also, there's the direct influence of classical music in metal. But not only that, that even fans of both genre share personality traits, which if you ask me it's really interesting.

https://www.theguardian.com/music/2008/sep/08/classical.metal.fans.study


Your affirmations not only show your lack of knowledge, which is a completely understandable thing nobody it's to blame for ignoring something, but the thing that really triggers me is the fact that you even took the time to create a thread based on nothing, just holes and being completely blind and ignorant on the subject.

But then again, you listen to "reggaeton" which is just basically auto-tune with recycled tracks and full of sexist and obscene lyrics, and call that 'music', a genre that characterizes for repeating the same beat over and over again, from one artist to another, like they don't even bother creating something new (except for the sexist lyrics, that somehow always manage to bring down the female genre further down each time.)

I really couldn't care less for anyone's personal preferences, whether in anime or music but if you can't understand something 'cause it's too different or too complex for you, there's no need to call that other thing garbage.

And if you're gonna come and say metal is garbage at least don't try to compare it with something as reggeaton and claim is musically superior. Just don't, minimizes the already in-existent credibility of your thread. Instead, something like reggeaton should indeed be called garbage cause as i said, not only is it not creative, there's not even a merit of someone playing instruments or notes worth praising for (basically cause of the simple fact that most is just tracks and auto-tune sheet), but is also pretty offensive, vulgar and disgusting.


So no, not only metal is not garbage, it's actually a quite developed, interesting, full of history and that even varies regionally. A genre that takes and is inspired not only by classical music, but blues, hard rock. And has inspired so many other genres that i just can't begin to quote.

EDIT: of course if you say it has "no beat" because it doesn't have the only beat you have had contact with aka the same beat that goes on and on in those danceable genre, i will agree it doesn't. In fact, you can't define 'metal' in one single beat, for it has so many different, infinite variables.

Also saying is 'loud' and 'edgy' it's...what does that even mean? I just can't. Seriously. That's just a very subjective impression, for instance something like dancehall is loud for me, annoying, but just because i don't enjoy it, i wouldn't call it garbage. It's just different to what i generally enjoy (expect for reggeaton which is basically the only genre i'd dare to call garbage)

Saying something is edgy? Is just another very personal opinion. Maybe also very biased on the aesthetics.

Oh and for the record, i just don't listen to metal. So it's not like one could claim i'm biased 'cause i'm a blind fan; i listen to so many different things, even traditional folk music from Madagascar, Rap (A Tribe Called Quest, Wu Tang Clan), Jazz and so on and so on.

I find it funny that metal fans always try to legitimize their genre's "hierarchy" by connecting it to classical music, not realizing that it applies to the vast majority of popular Western music. Frankly as an actual classical musician and an avid listener of a lot of genres, metal's a far-cry away from classical music.


Not that that's a negative.

I'm doing so in order to annihilate the possibility of someone arguing me back that it doesn't have structure or rhythm, when it's actually connected to the very pillars of music. So no, it's not to give it hierarchy. It's as you said, i'm stating the obvious (thing that the creator of this thread ignores claiming it's rhythm-less and just loud and edgy) but if something obvious is being ignored, i can't help to state it.


Also, i'm not just a metal fan. So don't picture me as a fanatic :)


EDIT: "metal's a far-cry away from classical music." i never claimed it was the same, not even similar. Just how it has influenced the genre, which i'll say again, i know it's obvious. But, what will be the point of just claiming that a musical genre has rhythm and link some music videos if after all that opinion is highly subjective and off mark?

I mean it was a stupid comment from him; structure/form, rhythm, and melody are the fundamentals of composition in Western music. It'd be weird for metal to lack any of these. It's also a bit funny watching musically uneducated people throwing around terminology to make their arguments look better, when they obviously don't make sense if you actually know what they mean.

I don't think people throws around terminology just for the sake of making it look better, music and musical terms are part of the cultural baggage that one embraces when growing in society. Now, that the terminology is not used correctly 'cause its widespread use has been distorted is one thing, and that maybe you that for a simple choice have had direct access to the source of that knowledge is another. It's not like if you don't belong o share a certain specific interest, you are not entitled to make use of it and if you do, you're just trying to 'look interesting', any less with music. Anything comprised in what we call culture is just part of an universal heritage and as such it will mutate.

Just how it has influenced the genre, which i'll say again, i know it's obvious.


It has to do with how music operated in Europe for centuries. Academics (aka classical musicians) had almost full control in the world of music, from the development of the 12 tone equal temperament to tonal harmonic logic, the "core" of contemporary Western music was developed and/or nurtured by classical musicians. Pretty much most genres, yes that includes rap and pop music, have indirect "influences" from classical music. In my opinion I don't call this an influence, but rather many genres today benefit greatly from the "skeleton of music making" classical musicians developed.

Now the question should be: do musicians from X genres approach composition/improvisation, performance, and theory in the manner classical musicians do? Do these musicians apply direct inspiration from the standard canon of classical music? For metal I can say there are many individual cases of classical trained musicians and/or aficionados that really do approach music making that can be said to be inspired directly from classical music, but for the overwhelming majority the answer is no.

For metal I can say there are many individual cases of classical trained musicians and/or aficionados that really do approach music making that can be said to be inspired directly from classical music, but for the overwhelming majority the answer is no.



What i meant by direct influence, like some songs even borrow some tunes or pieces from classical compositions (besides of course the trained individuals):*






Thank Cod for youtube.

*Wouldn't know if i'm using the terminology accurately, but i think at least my message it's somehow graspable.

It has to do with how music operated in Europe for centuries. Academics (aka classical musicians) had almost full control in the world of music, from the development of the 12 tone equal temperament to tonal harmonic logic, the "core" of contemporary Western music was developed and/or nurtured by classical musicians. Pretty much most genres, yes that includes rap and pop music, have indirect "influences" from classical music. In my opinion I don't call this an influence, but rather many genres today benefit greatly from the "skeleton of music making" classical musicians developed.

I listen to a diverse range of genre including music from other languages (and no, not just Japan), the only type of music I never got into is metal, so yes, imo it sucks.

You give everything a chance tho? At this point I shouldn't really care about random people's opinions but eh, just curious.

@KannoSugako Reggaeton shits on metal for me and I don't give a fuck about oh my god offensive and sexist lyrics. Only sjws care about that shit. It's also rich coming from someone with a Monogatari avatar a show that strongly sexualizes female characters. Where you have a naked loli vampire in the bath and there are closeups of Aragi's little sister's ass.

Lol this beat https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWvZT4qJ1eo is the exact same as this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vfy3TSSvF7A ?

Oh my god such sexism, such dirty lyrics. Simply talking about a man and a woman being together or a woman dancing sexy is oh my god so sexist and evil. Muh feminism!!!!!

Hardly heard any autotune in those songs. They are nowhere near Tpain or Kesha level. What does metal being close to classical have anything to do with this lmao.

Lol also at no instruments, the third song has mariachi horns and accordion, the first song has electric piano and 4th song has drums in their instrumentation.

@DrGeroCreation

Metal bands put on even better live shows than their studio albums, look at this raw and unhinged talent.

That's some good stuff right there V

Could you explain to me why you think it sucks? I gave my reasons in the op why I dislike it and would like to know if you dislike it for the same reasons as well.

Yeah, but it's supposed to be angry and loud. Well, that actually depends on the band. There's a variety of bands that write about hope, space, and other compelling subjects that are not "edgy". Cynic's Traced in Air and Atheist's Unquestionable Presence are fine examples of this. So is Death's Human, although it takes on the darker side of humanity.

And those are just the death metal bands, because outside of there, you will find melodic bands such as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Saxon, Cloven Hoof, etc. And then of course of you prefer slower and more primitive, yet still-as-intriguing metal, there's the classic Black Sabbath. So don't make fun of metal just because you don't know anything about it, that's like me calling Kendrick Lamar the worst rapper ever even though I've only listened to "Humble".

And like the other people on this thread, I love a lot of different music, not just metal. Such a biased character like yourself would never understand truly powerful music though, because you're so wrapped up in pathetic and meaningless things like "oh no my friends are going to make fun of me for listening to metal" or "oh god this is terrible... what band is this, Black Veil Brides? Yeah, this is totally a metal band." And again that's just me ranting because you're not the only one to hate on metal, but your unquestionable bias towards auto-tuned, lazy music with a simple "beat" just proves how much you really know about music. I don't want to have to state that for the third time, but I feel like that I'll eventually have to.

Personally, I'm a pretty big fan of metal. It's one of the genres that I listen to most. But honestly I don't give a shit if you hate it. You do you, man.
