Long metal subgenre names?
 
Which is the longest and possibly, silliest sounding sub-genre of metal that you have come across till now?

I mean eg. Neo Post Progressive Melodic Metalcore

But obviously, not made up like this one..

Even if that was real, it wouldn't really be a subgenre name. Also this is one of those times when hyperbole really does not work.

No such things as long genres - just people being overzealous and adding descriptors. Your example would be metalcore. The only instance I've seen neo used has been with neoclassical, progressive rock is its own thing (as is post rock) and grouping the two together is counter intuitive. Melodic, of course, is a redundant descriptor.

Okay. I guess the longest one I've actually heard was just Technical Progressive Brutal Death Metal and wanted to see how far people were willing to go with this thing.

Two words usually satisfies the urge. "x" metal. It's simple and it works.

Although, there's Depressive Suicidal Black Metal which is just like saying "it's sad, but also more sad."

Yeah, this.

There's also neofolk, neo-noir (a film classification), and just plain Neo (aka Keanu Reeves).

Not necessarily so. If a genre is typically rhythmically centered or beat based, then the inclusion of melodically driven passages, songs, etc. could alter the underlying structure, thus giving meaning and weight to the term in this context. ...but I think you were addressing his post specifically.

Don't forget Ne Obliviscaris.

I guess Ne Obliviscaris are Extreme Progressive Gypsy Folk Metal of some description.....

"Neo" means new. So, "new classical", "new folk", etc. Unless you're Keanu Reeves, in which case, it means you're the "ONE".

Side-note:
Post is often applied to a lot of different genres. Example: Post-Metal (think Neurosis after "Times of Grace" or Isis) has definitive metal influences, but it also brings in a lot of the philosophy of Post-Rock. Post-Grunge is bands like Three Doors Down, definite Grunge influence but not Grunge. And so on...

Anally-Retentive Tighter-than-Helmet Post Black Thrashcore with a hint of DeathJazz.

thedyslexialove 04-03-2014 10:18 PM

Not metal but friend of mine wouldn't let me call his band a pop band. He insisted it was indie post-punk alternative rock.

I also laughed really hard at this:

All the worst aspects of this forum, concentrated in one thread. Sad to see it go.
