I dunno, this sounds like something a radio rock band of the last decade would do in a music video.

So.. this is the only correct answer in this thread so far. It's the reason that a softer song by a metal band can still be metal, while a hard rock song that's faster, more aggressive, and tonally heavier is still not metal.

It's hard for me to say "composition" since I don't consider acoustic covers of metal songs, "metal."

Likewise, I'd say the difference in arrangement between a Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Cream, and Led Zeppelin song to be negligible.

Furthermore, if we look at say, "Room A Thousand Years Wide" or "Gun" by Soundgarden, it'd be very difficult for me to say that those songs have typical metal arrangements, but if either appeared on a Sabbath album they wouldn't seem out of place. Similarly, if they'd simply showed up on Metallica's "Black Album" I think they'd fit right in. However, Soundgarden isn't typically considered a metal band, nor are Badmotorfinger or Loud Love considered "metal" albums.

Also if we look at the composition aesthetic of And Justice for All or Time Does Not Heal vs A New Era of Corruption or Incipit Satan, we'll see quite divergent models in place, which each yielding the "metal" sound. Because of this, I think it's safe to say, it isn't just composition.

Everything is contextual, and, "you'll know it when you hear it" seems closer to what I'd say.

You haven't lived until you've seen a drummer backhand a guitar player so hard he cried. Sean Connery must be a drummer. The similarities between musicians and married people is comical.

Composition is more than what notes/chords you play.



Also, dicks. Big dicks = metal. That's why my dick is huge. I'm THAT metal.
