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.
Wow, this is an interesting mix. Of the albums I've heard, I like them all very much. I'll have to check out some of the ones I haven't heard. Any list that has Transcendence, Unquestionable Presence and Mabool is going to catch my attention.
Wow, very unusual yet interesting mix of albums you got here. While the heavy/power metal albums aren't really my cup of tea, albums by bands such as Warning, Aquilus, Candlemass, My Dying Bride, Edge of Sanity, Empyrium, Emperor, Solitude Aeternus, Officium Triste and Mourning Beloveth are definitely among my favourites. So good job. (and thank you too for your +1 on my list also check out my other lists if you're curious)
