The original post

Ok, this topic may already exist and if it does... Too bad.

I'm a cranky old fart who doesn't give a damn about sub-genres. And I certainly don't have any patience for snobby elitists who get all "in-your-face" about what band belongs in what sub-genre.

Technical-death-grind-aggro-trance-metal-dustrial...... Silliness.

There's now two genre's of music I have. Shit I like, shit I don't like.



What say you?

And "white metal" (also called "unblack metal") is also not recognized as an actual subgenre and is only used by extremely ridiculous elitist black metal heads who believe black metal is an ideology and not just a form of music so they refuse to refer to bands like Antestor as black metal just because they have the same musical properties as satanic black metal bands.


Actually the term 'white metal' was already used way before the second wave of black metal and was and still is used to refer to ALL Christian metal bands. Stryper was already called white metal in the early Eighties.

Oh really? I've only ever seen it used to refer to Christian black metal bands by extreme bm purists. Interesting, ya learn something new every day. Well that still remains an example of a ridiculous "subgenre" and I'll still choose to ignore it's existence until someone asks about it; same as here.

Lolz @ thought of using it to refer to ALL Christian bands. Antestor would be "white black metal", Stryper would be "white heavy metal", Living Sacrifice would be "white death metal", Believer would be "white thrash metal", As I Lay Dying would be "white metalcore" and Theocracy would be "white power metal". Makes them all look like NS bands, especially Theocracy!

as for white black metal, shouldn't we actually call that grey metal?

I guess that a sub-genre name will give us a hint of what to expect from a certain band, but not until we actually listen to its music we will be able to define their sound and most importantly, like skrog1 said: it will be either shit we like or dislike.

Sub-genres are completely necessary. Does Death metal really sound Indistinguishable from Black metal and so forth? Furthermore as someone with aspergers it has always been a natural thing for me to categorize, this band is Technical Death metal, this band Doom/death, This band Brutal death etc. Piece of Cake.

Sub-genres are necessary. How else could you find other Post-Death Rock bands?
