The original post

As opposite to the thread: the most difficult genre to get into, I'd be interesting to see your opinions on this issue.
Imo, getting into a genre deppends of the music we listen to, besides Metal and what we search in Metal, for example: I got really easy into Gothic Metal because I was interested in the dark side of music, life, art... and I got really interested in the gothic culture for some time.
So, imo, the easiest genre to get into would be Power or Heavy, I can't decide which is the easiest one

I'd say Black Progressive Doom Cathedral Metal, with some Djent here and there. Now that is easy to get into.

The hardest genre still today to get into is Glam metal. as the make up and everything just kills me inside, but the music keeps me coming back.

Nope. I can't stand Power metal at all, and found it to be one of the hardest genres to get into. It's so cheesy that it turns a lot of people off.

disagree. whether you or i like it is immaterial. we're looking at a wider scope and it stands to reason that since most people seem to like catchy melodic tunes (it's what dominates radio play) the catchiest, most melodic forms of metal would be the easiest gateway for the majority.

Idk. I think it depends. Although it is melodic, it is harder to get into than something like Metalcore, which can have elements of pop punk - an extremely easy genre to get into. Nu metal has hip hop, which can ease a non metal fan into it. I don't really see non metal fans taking to power metal, as it is so over the top and extreme in it's grandeur that it can be off putting.

Symphonic/gothic metal like Sirenia, Within Temptation or Delain. Very easy listening, soft music, almost like pop.

Probably traditional heavy metal (Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, and Judas Priest specifically) and speed/thrash metal (specifically the Big 4). Those tend to be the most popular of all metal bands/genres and can be considered a good gateway for many metal novices (I know they were for me especially).

Heh, I shoulda typed: "IF the person is somewhat interested in Fantasy/Sci-Fi literature/stuff" at the end of 'Power metal in general' but was way too lazy to type that there.

agree ! and the hardest thing to get into in metal is brutal death metal for a new listener, or even some slow death doom as well,it totally depends on the person and the way they approach the music.

yes, getting into the non-melodic melodic genres which have harsh vocals (like raw black metal, brutal death, grindcore) is the most difficult for most people imo, also doom like you said.

Yeah, actually I agree. I mean look at Metallica. They were huge even when they actually played Thrash. Slayer and Pantera are also huge, even outside of Metal circles, so I'm inclined to agree.

Uh?

well, taking in majority i strongly think it's pretty easy to get into any thrash or revivalist metal bands. If you talking about Havok, Revocation, Hell's Thrash Horsemen or Kreator are tough to get through, then i guess you should CHECK THESE BANDS out again.

I didn't dig Kreator much but I don't think it's hard to get into it for a new listener of metal,but I think Exumer or Coroner are not easy-listening stuff in thrash.
