dont you hate those people who correct you any time you label a band? or those people that arent satisfied with music unless every riff of the song was made by in-depth calculations? or what about the people that talk to you like youre stupid if you dont like their favorite genre or band?

lets face it, metal elitists can be some annoying ****s! dont get me wrong, i enjoy intricate music sometimes, and i get a little annoyed when a person's label for a band is totally off, but i cant seem to ever talk music with these people, or show them anything ive written.

so this thread is dedicated to ripping on metal elitist assholes! ill start!

Elitist? Surely elitism implies a sense of exclusion to those not in the know? I find most so called metal elitists are more than happy to suggest an alternate band if they don't think a band is good. I think a lot of people mistake having standards, and being able to rationalise taste, for elitism.

You know you're a metal elitist if you think that people who do calculus to help with writing riffs are false don't entry poseur level losers and that people who think that 'metal elitists' think that doing calculus helps with writing riffs will never taste the magic elixir of true metal and also poseurs.

Yes you would. You think you're so elite that you are more elite than the elitists.

I don't think there is any metal elitism in math metal. Mainly because math metal is one of the falsest metals around. Full of complicated time changes and machine-like technicality that in the end signifies nothing. No passion, no yearning for intellectual or ideological ascension, and consequently is in no way liberating or satisfying.
Who are you? The prince of darkness? Don't you have any friends?

Metal elitists live on the internet. Never in my 35 years of life have I encountered one in real life.

You know you're a metal elitist if you believe that metal only truly existed in the '80s, and that anything released after '89 is just incessant noise for sensitive people. Which I do.

Thing is if you go around saying that Isomnium are deathcore people are going to get pissed off.

But I agree with many of the above. There's an irony to being elitist in metal as it is.

Unfortunately, I suspect you mean more fans of bands like Asking Alexandria than actual Metalcore bands (read: bands with lots of hardcore influence). But whatever.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

Maybe you should learn to differentiate genres/sub genres then do a little research and learn about bands from each one. I have never met a metalhead that acted like I was stupid if I hadn't heard their favorite genre or band. Instead they recommend a song or album and are just generally stoked that I enjoy similar music.

The metal community is great, its the hardcore fans that come into my mosh pits and fuck them by punching and kicking people. If you tell me you like metal and then proceed to list off bands like underoath, saosin, hatebreed, and avenged sevenfold I am going to call you an asshole and kick you in the nuts. I'm not an elitest, that person is just a dick. At the same time that doesn't mean I am going to tell someone who listens to Trivium, Lamb of God, or Job For a Cowboy they are stupid for liking those bands and they aren't metal because, despite what I have heard others say, they definitely fall into the realm of metal.

I appreciate metalcore/dethcore/nu metal/ect, I really like some of it, but a real metalhead understands the difference both technically and aesthetically. Next time someone tells you something you deem to be elitest, appreciate that he/she has probably spent many hours listening to "metal" and recognizes how diverse the genre really is.

dude, dont talk to me like i dont know the first thing about the metal community. ive been a metalhead for almost my whole life (im not even kidding when i say i got into Toxicity when i was like 7ish).

im aware not every metalhead is a dick. i never said "metalheads are some annoying ****s", i said "metal elitists", as in people who DO look down on and talk shit on other genres frequently

im really about to close this thread because you people who are taking this seriously are pissing me off

A few hours ago, armed fans of rock bands Earth Crisis and BTBAM converged at the local town square. Wielding improvised weapons, they proceeded to murder 6000 civilians in the span of an hour before dispersing. The reason why you don't see this in the news? Juice
