I listen to Dragonforce because I like their sound, not because they are 'overrated'. The logic of you then saying "Well atleast what I listen to isn't overrated bullcocky like yours." makes you seem like a child in an argument with another child over who has the coolest watch for instance.

Child A: My watch glows in the dark
Child B: Well at least my watch costs more money!

Again, very mature.

I never said you listen to it because its over rated. No one likes something because its overrated. Being overrated just gives something more of a reason to not like it. I'm just saying the band isn't as good as everyone who listens to it says it is. Their playing is mediocre.

No, you didn't say I listen to them because they're overrated, however, you DID say that Dragonforce are overrated, therefore you are suggesting that's why I listen to them, it's called reading between the lines. Furthermore "Their playing is mediocre." is your opinion, trying to enforce it upon me makes you elitist. Congratulations, you are an immature elitist, what a fantastic combination.

There was nothing between the lines. I said their overrated. I never thought that would be a reason for you to listen to them. That doesn't even make sense. And Being mediocre like how dragonforce is, is not an opinion. It's a fact that they're not as good as people say they are.

The reason Dragonforce is popular is simply because they had the hardest song on Guitar Hero, thats why they got all the publicity.

@ Severed- if you think what they play is mediocore and terrible, i would like to see you strap on a REAL guitar and play some of their songs without missing a beat. You cant, they guitarist in the band have skill, of course they are no where near what Slash is, but they are still very good at playing their instrument.

I personally enjoy listening to Dragonforce every once in awhile, mostly whenever im playing games, good music to play games to. Trance is also another good genre to listen to whilst you own at a game lol.

Again Severed, you are projecting your opinions and beliefs, and completely disregarding everyone elses, unless they agree with you, thats why you like tbroaofbtvohfm, because he agrees with you. Honestly, i find it pathetic that you and him babble on about 'elitism' and 'i hate elitists' when you are one yourself. You have to accept other peoples opinion for what they are, even if you dont like/agree with them. If you choose to take the way you are taking as of now, then Luneth is correct, you are acting like an immature, petchulent child, and i pity you

Bravo t, bravo. You can make a case for a good argument. But as for your so called "elitism" theory, i find it blantantly ironic that for all that you have said, you despise/dont want to be a so called 'elitist.' Problem is, you act, speak, and genuinely are an unrelenting hole. So by posting on this thread, you have, in yourself, become what you started off not wanting to be in the first place.
Bravo to you for having the balls to actually respond then, and for using paragraphs instead of shooting your whole sudo not-so-honed wad of fail at once. But fail is fail, and here's how/why you failed:
There's nothing "ironic" about my views on elitism at all. Why would I type out a sentence with the tag line "All elitists are right, and anyone who disagrees with them are just bitter" if I didn't accept the fact that some (alot of) people might consider my opinions on metal to be elitist-like? I couldn't care less about what some stranger thinks of me when it comes to music, especially when I know they're wrong. I just said I hoped I wasn't being perceived as an hole/elitist/whatever, clearly you've drowned my hopes by this point for SoleO Snip3r the individual...
I can agree with some of what you say, but as for me being the one that made a mistake in naming the topic on a 'non-metal forum.' Many of the people on this site listen to metal, so there are pelnty of good opinions/ideas on what metal is and how it is defined.
You misinterpreted my meaning...
I meant the name of your topic was too broad, you could have made multiple threads pertaining to different sub-genres since there's no sub-forums in the music section for genres in general, let alone sub-genres of metal. It would have been more hassle, but I'm guessing you would have gotten a more satisfactory result than this one (if your complaining about it).
Which is another thing, you and severed bashed all the bands that were presented in the previous posts, yet just like Severed, you did not post any of the 'metal' bands that you listen to or enjoy listening to. Which kinda defeats the entire purpose of your argument, just like Severed. If you are going to debate on a topic, you must provide background as to why your views are the way they are, and with this topic, that would be why the bands are garbage, and why your bands are better.Which was something you did not even attempt to complete.
Ok, well you've now made it obvious that you didn't read my intial post at all, I'm guessing you just skimmed over the post that your responding to with the above text as well.
The only band I "bashed" in this thread was Metallica, who Severed kinda defended (in a way). I didn't post any bands that I enjoy listening to? I posted a f*cking link to the Mentor's main myspace page, hole. Don't try to correct me when you don't know what the f*ck your talking about, and don't tell me I have to "provide background" when I've already done more explaining than anybody else who's posted here before me.
The very fact that I recommended the goddamn Mentors should be enough to warrant a blowjob from every single mother/sister of the members who posted in this topic before me. They're hetero as f*ck, they're oldschool, they're music is called f*cking Rape Rock, they sing about killing glamfags and f*cking women, and they're music is kick-ass as shit. The Mentors is an undeniable Heavy Metal, and Metal band.

Metal is supposed to be Hetero-as-f*ck, Black Metal is supposed to be Evil, Death Metal has to be Heavy, Thrash's got to be fast'n badass, Grind has to be chaotic, Power Metal has to be powerful, and Doom has to be... Well, do I even have to say it?
There is no "core", there is no f*cking "slam", its all garbage and drivel if it doesn't bleed masculinity and intensity.
You want examples? Click on these:
Black Metal - Ravenclaw - Fan Myspace - Last.fm
Death Metal - Cancer - Fan Myspace
Thrash - Artillery - Fan Myspace
Grind - Assuck - Myspace
Power - Attacker - Myspace
Doom - Acid Witch - Myspace

All those bands pretty much sum up their respective genres, and they're all badass as shit.
You don't like'em, then you don't like Metal.
As for the whole 'breaking my balls' and 'shitting' on me. Im simply posting my ideas of how this topic should have gone and how i wanted it to go, ignoring the title, because if you have the capability of being literate, my first post tells you exactly how i wanted the topic to go.

Right, and now I'm shitting on you for it, and you've failed at defending your "position".
I wanted other peoples ideas on metal, not bashing bands and arguing with each other, which is what this has become. I don't mind debating, but you have to have the tolerance, and be able to hear the other person's beliefs/opinions before you simply put them down and, as you would put it, 'shit' on them.
The only person I put down (now) was you, and I damn enjoyed it.
I was very tolerant of the shit opinions that others had posted before me, all I did was tell'em what I thought of the whining and where I think it all stems from. Again, the "band bashing and arguing" that went on here was extremely mild compared to the norm of specific "cater" metal sites like the ones I usually post on.
You're over-reacting dude, being the biggest cry-baby of them all only reflects why this topic was destined to fail in the first place.
Basically what im trying to say is that your arguement about metal can be accepted if you can but answer this one question...

How do you define metal?

If you can answer that question, i will accept your arguement and move on with the proper posting on this topic.
Piss off, I don't need your stamp of approval, or anyone else's for that matter.
I've been listening to metal long enough to know what the f*ck I'm talking about, and if you don't "accept" my assertions, then you've got some records to buy, kiddo.
Also, lul @ Faggotforce.

Very good tbroaofbtvohfm , i honestly admire your passion to be proven right. I responded because, like yourself, i enjoy a good debate/arguement, disregarding whether or not i 'win.' I did miss the links you posted, my bad. As for the band bashing, i myself have also seem much worse on metal forums postings, but i just wanted people to list their preferred metal bands and what not, caring nothing for the 'sub-genres' and shit like that. Severed had bashed almost all the bands posted before him, and you agreed with his position. Which, to me, Meant that all the bands that were listed previously were also considered 'garbage' by you. My topic may have been too broad, but, as i stated before, my inital post on this topic stated that i wanted to know what other people enjoyed listening to, when it came to metal. Metal encompasses a shitload of different genres and bands alike, so i expected there to be hard-core listeners, much like yourself, and people who thought korn and linkin park where metal. The broadness was to get a sense of what everyone that posted thought was good music.

Piss off, I don't need your stamp of approval, or anyone else's for that matter.

Simple answer, you cannot answer my question and take the 'f*ck off' approach. Because you and I both know that a genre of music is based SOLELY on OPINION, and cannot be classified by everyone the same. I can give you credit, you do know much about metal. I for one appluad you on the fact that you enjoy the music that most consider 'real metal' and not the really light shit that real metal fans look down upon. Im not giving nor denying you my approval. Just gave you a question over the topic which you think you know the most about, and you cannot provide a legitimate answer that applies to everyone. That was the point i was trying to get accross to Severed. Elitists have a fatal flaw, they cannot accept/agree with anyone else's opinions besides their own. While you make a very good and well thought out point, you still cant accept the fact that bands you dont like, are in fact, considered metal by some people. Dragonforce is a good example. They are considered by many to be metal, and many consider them rock/hard rock/whatever. You call them Faggotforce because you dont like them, but they are classified alongside some of the bands that you probably listen to.
I also agree with another one of your approaches. You can 'shit' on me all you like lol, i honestly dont give a rats-ass what some guy says to me over the internet. Your opinion can be expressed, but i dont agree with it completely, so im gonna say what i dont agree on. Whether you accept that or not is up to you, but im not 'whing' or 'bitching', just saying what i feel towards what has been said and posted here. As for the im the biggest whiny baby here, you only say that because im the only one here that has the balls to disagree with what you are saying. Most people would have read your first post and been like, "Holy shit, this guy is smart, i dnt want to f*ck with him." Some would have busted out a dictionary and looked up half the words you used because they didnt even know those words existed. I, however, enjoy a conversation/debate with someone that is intelligent, because stupid people frustrate/irk me. Your flaw is that you think you are completely right and know just about everything when it comes to metal. So you believe that anybody else's views and beliefs are inferior/idiotic. Im just saying i dont like people that are stuck-up/arrogant simply because they think they know everything about something, when in reality, they know specifics, not the totality of the subject. Thats all.

I like all of the bands that were posted on your comment, and listen to them frequently. I prefer some actual singing in the song, which is why i enjoy As I Lay Dying and All that Remains. However, i still enjoy a good thrashing song or a good Amon Amarth song here and there.
Buying records, hmm thats a good one. I havent bought a record since i was like 12, anyone with access to the internet can get all their music for free. As for the "Im mister big shot and i dont need a damn approval from anyone." Ahh i find it funny that your arrogance outweighs everything else. Also shows how self-centered you are, you think you know so much when it comes to metal. Sadly, you know very little, only certain aspects and portions of it. To jump to the conclusion that you know a shitload of what you are talking about, is quite pretentious on your part as well.

If you choose to take the way you are taking as of now, then Luneth is correct, you are acting like an immature, petchulent child, and i pity you

I can not play what they play simply because, nigga, I don't play the guitar. Doesn't mean its skillfull. I can't swim very well doesn't mean that huge amounts of people can't do it easy enough. Playing fast does not mean your skillfull and being skillfull isn't even that important because in all honesty look at the music you hear on the radio and tell me it required some skill to make. I'd rather take a good sounding ambient song instead of a bunch of chords played really quickly that sound like a bunch of bullcocky. In all honesty, almost every single song they play sounds the same. Sure they can play the guitar but when they can only play the same stuff then I don't see why they have fans.

Also, I just like tbroaofbtvohfm because hes a sexy beast and because I <3 him.

Also, If you want a list of bands I like...

Demelich
Naked City
PainKiller
Ruins
magrudergrind
Sleep

Just some stuff off the top of my head.

(Finally this is turning into a real music section.)
