Question What defines the Metal Style

Just wanted to know your take on that.
What distinguishes Rock from Hard Rock from Metal from Hardcore.
It is very subjective and I don't want to start a fight.

My take would be the Distortion presence kind of Put Hard Rock
on the Table but then when does it become Metal ?

it has always been an "i know it when i hear it" type of thing for me...anything more specific than that and you'll run into counterexamples

The riffs give away metal to me.

And that's part of the reason me (and true metalheads) disagree that Nu-metal is a part of the metal movement. Nu-metal is vocals, drums, bass, very little (and hard to hear) guitar, and a bunch of studio stuff.

Now I don't want to start an internet fight over metal. This is just my opinion. If you don't like my opinion, screw you. K?

Metal tends to lose electrones whereas non-metal tends to accept electrones

Riff structure, distortion, lack of what is known as a hardcore breakdown...

Seriously, it's hard to describe. The one thing all metal has in common is the instruments and most prominently distorted guitars.

If you want to drive 20 mph over the speed limit to it it's rock.
If you want to drive with gloves made of steel and a cigar in your mouth with a mean look to it it's hard rock.
If you want to walk away from an explosion you set off slowly or walk towards the place where you're going to make an explosion to it it's metal.

Any other explanation is wrong...
