The original post

So, the reason I joined this forum is because the people seem to be tolerant towards more 'alternative' types and fusions of metal genre, even though the extreme metal is probably most popular kind on this forum. Even so, some of the genres (like the top three) usually take a lot of crap/dislike from one reason or another, it doesn't really matter. So, as tolerant and open minded as we all are, we all have some artists/genres we generally don't like, or truly hate.

So, what's your black sheep of the metal family? (and please no crap about 'not metal'). I can respect and tolerate almost anything, but I guess I dislike Black metal the most (and Pornogrind, if you can call it a genre), but there's really no purpose putting poll for it in this forum. Why do I dislike it? I hardly even gave it a try, but it sounds so soulless and empty to me. That's just my subjective opinion of course.

And yours?

^ They look pretty dumb. Music is bad too, but it still beats Nu, Grindcore, Deathcore, and Black. Bleh.

you obviously haven"t heard good grindcore and black metal yet

Meh. I couldn't see myself being a fan of black or Grind. I'm always open to listening to new things, though. Amaze me.

while with black metal there is a head through the wall approach, for example you can try the first black metal song i ever heard and that immediately got me into it:

a more rational approach can be used. considering your taste here are a few thrashy, melodic or otherwise accessible examples




for grindcore you should probably start with something solid not too fast without noise experimentation

I voted deathcore. I think the only thing I like from the genre is maybe Ion Dissoance, and Kamikabe (though its on the fence). I mean, I feel like its much worse than any other genre in terms of quantity/quality. I'm the type of person that if I don't like something, I automatically forget it so I really can't think of any real standout bands, whereas with the other genres I can easily name some gems. I think the biggest thing for me was going to a deathcore festival because I was bored... it was so bad, I mean there was some big names up there and I thought it was really awful. Yeah, you have stereotypes of fans and that's what people focus on but, trying to be objective about the bands playing they were all just clone of each other, and my biggest surprise was how people knew the lyrics to the music being played. Big props, seriously. I mean, if you like the genre, that's fine... I just can't do it.

I'll probably get a lot of hate because of it, but I can't stand Thrash. Yes, I am serious. Only thrash band I think is decent is Arma Gathas, though they're not purely thrash. Well, now you know it. Yes, I'm a pussy-ass fag who doesn't deserve being here, how did you know it?

Post-metal - the closest I've come to liking is Fever Sea, and they're more black than post. Everything else has been varying degrees of awful. Stoner is a close follow-up.

What even defines 'Alternative Metal?' I thought that was just a nicer name for nu metal.

I can understand that a bit, there's only like 2-3 thrash bands i really enjoy, and even that its usually only a handful of songs.

Mm, exactly. It is not that I don't respect it, cuz I really do, it's just that thrash isn't my stuff.

Grindcore, Brutal Death, Raw Black Metal... It's not that I hate them, just can't listen, too extreme for me.

Suicidal/depressive black. I like my music melancholic, not maniacally depressive. In a lesser way thrash. I like Kreator and a few bands, but most of them sound incredibly boring, generic and all the same. At least the new wave that is all hot right now, Gama Bomb, Warbringer etc...

Metalcore. Some of my friends listen to his shit and they say it's heavy. Especially after the new BFMV album things have become worse. I also hate Deathcore because of it's high level of shittiness.

NU-METAL sucks ass, accept for Slipknot. They may be mainstream but I really don;'t they are sellouts and they are awesome live.
