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.
Belgian Black metallers Enthroned have posted the following update on their MySpace site:
"In a month, Enthroned will start the recording of the new album "Pentagrammaton". The band sent some new tracks to Regain Records and 100% of the reactions are simply insane! The concept of "Pentagrammaton" will deal with lived fact through satanism and the occult and the musical direction is the logic fellow up to "Tetra Karcist" with some elements of albums such as "Prophecies of Pagan Fire" and "Towards the Skullthrone of Satan"."
