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?

So it would be kinda hard to get the joke hehe.

You don't have to know The Clash or Westlife to get the joke since it's more context-based.

But I think that's enough off-topic commenting for now.

Basically any metal genre has its gems... But everyone definitely have their favorites and the despised ones. For me goregrind is an odd genre but I understand slam death metal (maybe not actually an independent genre) the least. It's just somehow uninspiring, boring and overall sounds kinda retarded.

Other than that deathcore is flooded by pointless Suicide Silence type of "br00tal breakdown" bands but some, like Veil of Maya and Born of Osiris sound actually pretty decent to me. And glam metal... bands like Poison are an absolute disgrace to rock in general, but some artists are more tolerable. I did never get why women even liked these guys Fashion is pretty damn odd to say the least with both deathcore and glam. Other genres are mostly all OK to me.

They do? I never met one girl who liked metal/rock and thought any of those guys were hot.

Very true, metal is about the music, leave the who's hotter game for the boybands.

Alas virtually every single metal band with a girl invariably becomes more about the hotness of the female band member than the music.

Except Bolt Thrower - Jo Bench will just rip your head off and shit down your throat whilst cranking out some groovy death metal bass lines. As it goddamn fucking should be!


Oh I realize this and I don't like it. That's the main reason I'm not crazy about female fronted bands. It doesn't help that many of these band in gothic or symphonic metal kind of sound too similar.

Symphonic power metal
Deathcore
Metalcore
Nu metal
But there are some exceptions.
I have listened to a few deathcore and metalcore bands that aren't too bad.
But as a whole I don't like it.
And of course this is just based on what I have heard, obviously not everything in one genre sucks.
Or maybe it does, that's left to one's own interpretation.

Any genre with -core at the end. Whether that be Crunkcore, Crabcore, Post-Hardcore, Deathcore, Metalcore, Rapcore, Grindcore, Horrorcore or corecore. I've yet to hear anything from a -core genre that doesn't just piss me off immediately.

I voted for other: Grindcore............... I just don't get it: grrrr!! arrghhhh!!! aaarrffff!!!......... is that really someone trying to say something?
riffs?? isn't that just........... noise??!!
I don't know, but I guess that I'm the kind of guy that likes to listen to at least a hint of melody in a song, or a beat, a rythm, not just noise for the sake of it.
Cheers to all who like Grindcore!

But Uldreth, our resident core guru, is still about.

Well hey I don't know anyone really into -core genres, so if anyone would have good suggestions I'd check 'em out. There was a time when I didn't even like harsh vocals at all but I grew to like them, so I figure its possible the same could happen with grindcore.

Very much an acquired taste. I don't mind some grindcore but a lot of it is too difficult to listen to and indeed does come across as noise.

The other "-cores" are a mixed bag - early hardcore and crossover rock my boat but I'm not a fan of most melodic metalcore. There's so many other "-cores" out there though and I've definitely not heard of them.

Yeah I suppose I could've been more specific. I do enjoy some hardcore punk and crossover, otherwise the -core genres haven't appealed to me all that much.

Even though I'm not attracted to moder -core, I think the best heavy metal has tons of punk and hardcore built into it be it Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, Megadeth, Motorhead, Entombed, Suicidal Tendencies, Pantera, Lamb of God, Mastodon, Venom, even early Iron Maiden.

I agree, with some theres an undeniable influence. I'm always confused when some metalheads talk about punk as if its a form of music they can't even respect in any form, when many bands they like are at least somewhat influenced by it.

I realize this is an old post but I have to agree with it, it's always kinda bugged me, especially when the band could get by without needing that sort of attention.

Add Mel Mongeon as one that doesn't prance around with her tits out to get more fans. Females in music that don't seem to rely on the fact they are females always gain some extra respect from me.

Putrefied Beauty was an all-female Italian band that had pretty good looking members. They weren't around long, but their demo/promo pictures never seemed to be going for the "look how hot we are" thing, and they were always tastefully clothed. Shame they went away as their first two demos were pretty solid too.

I'm going to have to go with deathcore. It edges nu-metal by a cunthair, but only because even the most interesting deathcore is totally fake. There's some decent stuff in Born of Osiris, but deathcore bands don't just play to a click, they're quantized to a grid to the point where there is no performance. Fuck, even alternating pieces of metalwork in the drum kit bang straight quarter notes the whole damn song.

I like it how there is not a single extreme metal alternative listed.
It's almost like the poll is tendencious in a certain way

But nah... Surely not

Maybe someone should make the same kind of thread with more genre options to hate on.

If brutal death would only consist of bands as good as Gorguts or early Suffocation then it would be one of the best genres ever, but thats sadly not the case..From these listed, I would take hair metal. I dont think I've heard a hair metal band which sounded even remotely decent, just always straight up shit.
