14:09 - Zaphod Ok, bad example, but you get the point. Metalcore has metal in it, so it's metal for me.
14:07 - Zaphod Yeah and Ensiferum is metal mixed with Finnish folk music, both genres have metal in them.
14:00 - Hex_Omega Well Metalcore is Metal mixed with Hardcore. It is something different, theoretically.
13:58 - Hex_Omega Nu Metal bands can be controversial for some metalheads and thats why I am not surprised that they don't have Slipknot on their site. However their music is metal.
13:56 - Zaphod Yeah, that's what I meant with 'true metal' (not that I agree with them, for the record) It confuses me how some people don't consider metalcore metal. Sure, you might not like it, but that doesn't mean it's not metal.
Machine Head are proud to announce the release of the special edition version of "The Blackening", their Grammy-nominated masterwork.
