Hi everyone,

I am the only one in my family who likes heavy metal (I do listen to other kinds of music as well). Apart from me there is my father who enjoys listening to music. But to softer stuff. And that is all. The others may listen to what is on air.

There is my brother who thinks I am weirdo on every point. He does not know what is heavy metal. He could only think of Marilyn Manson, Metallica or Rammstein. I think that is all the bands he "knows". To him, they are all the same. It is just noise with someone screaming over it. And they all scream the same way. For him, you may listen to the bands above when you are 15 and then you grow up.

Earlier this afternoon I was listening to some Aborted and at one point he entered my room. He said that it was all noise and blahblah, that the guy should see a doctor and check his throat to fix it (yeah it is not sung with the throat but anyway...), that there is no lyrics and that anything in the noise is comprehensible. When there was a blast beat he asked why did they speed up the song. Just before he left he finished by saying that in a few years I will think back of how stupid I was to listen to that sh**.

I do not care what he is thinking. It is not going to change my mind. Well it is not exactly that I do not care, I am actually wondering how is it possible to be so narrow-minded...

Metal is for dorks. Listen to post rock like an adult.

Tell him it's music, so deal with it.
Stop caring about what he thinks.

Stop caring.

Alternatively, strap him into a chair and force him to listen to Metal at full volume for at least a day.

That might well turn out to be true. And even if it isn't, you'll look back and think how stupid you were to give a shit about other people's opinions on music.

Don't tell them anything.

What do you tell a man who doesn't like chocolate ice cream? The matter is equally trivial.

Dude, getting mad at them and posting on the internet about it is just about the least metal thing you could ever do.

Grow a pair and kill them already.
I've decided that my signature is terrible. I'm open to suggestions.

Tell him, "don't insult my tastes, I won't insult yours." Then play something melodic like Maiden or Blind Guardian to disprove the majority of his points.


No, he's trying to disprove that it's not music for 15 year olds.

Tell him to shove an avocado up his overly-tight ass.

Joke, but really what you should really do is explain that music is subjective, that you enjoy that music and that he shouldn't be so close-minded and judgmental.

Of course. Everybody listens to post rock. That's why it's all over the airwaves.

this
music is pretty much all the same shit, it's just soundwaves
if you listen to music for the culture you're being shallow
of course everyone is shallow to a degree and everyone on this site has at some point I believe indulged in music culture because that is what this forum we are participating in is an example of!

Sibling rivalry?

My older brother made fun of everything I liked when I was younger. Whether he's your younger or older brother, he's probably just trying to get under your skin to get the better of you.....and he's winning

"Grow out of" might be a bit wrong, but "grew away from" as in now people like more music than just metal is accurate and probably better.

Oh, I haven't listened to the radio for a long time and all my IRL friends listen to classical music except for one guy I know who likes to suck Blink 182 dick dw I got him into neutral milk hotel though. that's actually a good thing to do OP - make a joke out of it too.
like get him to listen to power metal. he'll connect it to LOTR fantasy stuff and be into it plus most of it is exaggerated on purpose and thus hilarious, or epic if you're 12

but yeah unless what you're referring to as post-rock is something different
idk i haven't heard much post-rock on 'stralia airwaves

but some kids at school always say that metalcore is post-rock for some reason it's funny

But like most metal, post-rock can be inane drivel too. Diatonic lazy minimalism dragged on for extended periods of time.

Combining the two, however...

What exactly does he not understand? If he thinks it all sounds like noise then so be it.

You don't need to try and "convert" him to metal, if he thinks all metal is noise, good for him, who cares?
