So I see a lot of you are listening to metal. Personally my perception of metal is not too far from the one of usual noise. So what's the hype about metal, ****ty vocals etc...?

I don't want to start a flame war or whatever...

I simply want you people to show la creme de la creme of metal...

Go on post some epic stufff....

Edit; ^Also that.

Listen to a metal band that actually sounds good rather than a metal band that's guitarist and bassist play a bottom string dropped so low it's four gauges higher than the rest of them and don't have to add core to the end of their name. I'm not a metalhead, but it's a matter of sorting the gems out of the crap.

ozzy osbourne is metal
Cette nuit j'ai rêvé que je mâchais ses yeux
Après avoir crevé par accès de furie
Ta replète panse d'helminthes blancs nourrie,
Trop prompte à déféquer le fruit d'un vit sanieux.

Find some band whose musical talent/ability is good. Technically good I mean. I dunno, look for some Megadeth when Marty Friedman was still there. Like, A Tout Le Monde and Train of Consequeces, Tornado of Souls, that kind of thing.

Metal is a pretty varied genre too, so you may find a particular style you like. Just look around a bit, have an open mind about it, it's not all about rough sounding voices and heavy riffs, some stuff is really melodic and some lyrics are really deep.
An Augmented 4th or a Diminished 5th?

Megadeth. Period.
Yup, that's a good description of a period.

Don't force yourself to like Metal. Actually, never listen to it.

you cant just make someone get into metal...
i used to hate it too, thought it was noise.
but theres that point for some people where you like the noise, and it gives you energy and if you open up to it its amazing... i still like loads of other stuff but metal is awesome.

if you think its just noise, then like seriously just **** off and dont say that to metalheads or youll probs get the **** kicked out of you.

If you need convincing, it's not your thing.

PROTIP: Studies show that people listening to metal generally has higher musical IQ's, as well as those listening to classical. From those two, it only goes downwards.

The Prince Of Darkness is most certainly more on the metal side of the spectrum than the hard rock side.

For your information, Mr. Elite Classical Smell My Own Farts, most metal has the musical of a classical composition. Quality and all musicianship is key to well written piece as well as the fact that many influences from all types of music enter. So dont judge.
