My friend is hooked on Deathcore Metalcore. I'll admit some of the bands he listens to, are pretty good. aka BOO, Converge.

But what rustled my jimmies was that he called Whitechapel Death Metal. I told him they were core and proceeded to show him Scar Symmetry. He then said SS was horrible for his tastes and still calls Whitechapel metal. What can I do?

Your gauge for Death Metal is Scar Symmetry and your complaining that your friend calls Whitechapel Death Metal?

If anything he's closer to being right than you are.

I also showed him Morbid Angel if that improves my credibility?

You lost all your credibility the moment you decided making this thread was a good idea.
I’m not the man I used to be, I... I can’t go back to Arkham.

I... I should return to Arkham.


Among the churchyard’s mouldering stones I recognise a name – my own.
I have come home to Arkham.

I dunno. Maybe keep living your own life, instead of going to an online forum to whine about it?

Win out by showing him quality death metal. If he can't get it... it's not for everyone, so love him for who he is and not his accuracy in speaking of metal.

Try going to the bands page and showing what they label themselves as? I stopped caring what bands label themselves as.

Introduce yourself and him to some VADER!

He's stuck in that whole RiseRecords scene like I was. I just want to show him some better artists. Whitechapel is enjoyable to me, the only Death Metal influence I hear though, are blast beats, and growling.

Sounds like its just a phase, she'll be apples though

I'm starting to see why people around here are wanting to purge the forum, now if you can only convince the one who wields the ban hammer.

On the other hand, a significant amount of entertainment also comes from these pathetic threads.

Meh, i have more than enough things to keep my mind busy at work. UG is for my relax time, so a bit of brainless entertainment is welcome. Like those stupid american sitcoms -- they're utter garbage, but they're useful to decompress at the end of the day.
