Well metal is really diverse, so you're probably thinking of the stereotypical, metal you see high school kids trying to be wannabe badass listening to.

Here's some different sounding metal







Metal isn't all just "chug chug ROAAWWWWR"

All I can say is that metal's kinda really gripping, and strongly emotionnal too.

Well it differs from band to band and genre to genre. Clumping all metal together is like saying all rock bands are the same.

To be honest, any form of genre that one is not familiar with could sound like racket. For instance, hip hop may sound like noise to an older generation, and house music to some. Metal is more common because it is loud and fast as well.
There is some very well written metal out there, but like all genres, you will have manufactured artists and ones that are just plain boring, but also very good ones. A lot of metal has emotional connection, a number of movements or "suites" and not just verse/chorus, and a lot of the time thought provoking lyrics (it is hard to hear but you get used to it) (and of course not all bands have good lyrics, but same thing as I said before).

Whatever floats your boat. I'm not a huge metal fan, but there are bands that I love in the genre.

It all depends on the band really, you can't just say "Metal sucks" because there are so many different bands.

Well I did say that and she still refuses to like it, so I wouldn't push the issue further.

To be honest, this is kind of refreshing since I'm usually used to the other end of the spectrum with metal elitists.

Yeah, it is interesting, most music sites are either hipsters that refuse to listen to bands that have more than 5 fans, or strictly metal.

LOL, I was thinking the same thing the other day...what album do I wanna review.

On the other hand, I hate the tr00 metal guys especially down here. They have this ultimate hate for hipsters but they are hipsters themselves if you think about it. "Yeah I only listen to so and so but you've probably never heard of them before. They're too brutal for most people." or "I'm over those guys, they used to be pretty legit but now they've gone all mainstream (when they get more than a 1000 fans but most ppl haven't even heard of them before = mainstream)" I rest my case.

That's most metal elitists in general. Best argument for why Metalcore and Nu Metal aren't metal is because metal is not supposed to be on the radio Laughing

Since we're laughing at hipsters, I hope the world's biggest hipster Linkin doesn't decide to pop in.

Do you always try to stereotype a group that actively avoids stereotypes? Must be hard, Horsedick.MPEG. Must be really hard.

Well I'm an equal opportunity offender so I can't leave them out of the hate circle.

Not all metal is screamy so you can't understand the lyrics. Metal is such a vast genre to say you hate it completely ... well.. I HATE close mindness.

Can you understand these lyrics?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UiTm0L05q4k

And why do you hate metal? why does it suck? Because you have only mentioned the vocals. There are so many bands with clean vocals, vocals you can hear and understand, so why write off metal as a genre, when you don't even understand it.

I'm a fan of Tool, I also like Alternative metal bands like Chevelle and some Nu Metal bands like the Deftones. Though the status of Chevelle and the Detones being metal varies from who you talk to.
