While I can't say I'm a fan of a lot of heavy metal, it's more like I enjoy specific songs from specific groups. Groups like Killswitch Engage and The Darkness have some songs that I enjoy.

If you want to go the route of groups that I enjoy a good deal of their music, we'd have to pick groups like Korn, Linkin Park, and System of a Down. Don't say that Korn and Linkin Park are not metal, as they are classified as nu metal, which is a subgenre of metal.

I also enjoy even older, more established groups like Alice in Chains and Faith No More.

And of course, you can't really go wrong with Metallica.

This is just a topic to see if anyone else listens to metal like i do. I would have to say my fav metal band would most likely be either As I Lay Dying or All That Remains. If we are talking like old school metal, then its definetly gotta be Metallica. They are undoubtedly the best long-lasting metal band, considering they have lasted almost three decades together and havent broken up at all.
As I lay dying and all that remains shouldn't even be considered metal. They're just horrible. Metallica were okay but really, now their just another mediocre band.

Bullet For My Valentine , Especially the song: suffocating under words of sorrow BFMV FTW!!!!!!! Grin

Bullet for my valentine ARENT metal. No. Stop it. No.


Also, Yes I can say that linkin park aren't metal. I put them in the category of crap. Total unadulterated crap.

You know, just because you personally don't consider something to be in a specific category does not mean that it is not that category.

You do realize that there are subgenres to metal, right? Just because you may consider something like black metal, death metal, or gothic metal to be "metal," does not mean that subgenres like alternative metal, nu metal, or grunge are not metal.

The world is not as black and white as you may think.

Killswitch Engage is a good band, one of the only bands that i have gone on a road trip to see in concert.
Korn is classified as nu metal, but as for Linkin Park, they are classified as rap metal on their old stuff, their newer stuff would be considered rock. System of a Down is also a good band, but wouldnt necessarily consider them metal, even though they are classified as a metal-ish band.
Alice in Chains is a good band, but they are not classified as a metal band, they are classified as an Alternative band like Nirvana (my favorite band, but hate the new shit like Lake of Fire) Kurt Cobain FTW!!!

@Severed- so you didnt post your favorite metal band, which gives you no right to bash others if you do not give out your defense by providing a band that you believe is "better." So your arguement becomes null and void. If you say which band you like, then we can assess whether or not your band is "better."

I agree with him to a certain extent as well. I would not classify Korn or Linkin Park as "metal" because they do not embody the typical, original style of metal. But not all metal should be classified as screaming or singing in a really low voice. I prefer the old metal like Matallica and Black Sabbath, but thats just me. As for the newer stuff, there are so many genres nowadays, that anything can be classified as being metal-ish. Severed is right on a few things, but completely wrong on some as well.
