Hello!

I'm gonna get sooooo flamed for this, however.

I notice every music thread or discussion and peoples bands seem to be all about metal. I myself hate everything to do with metal.

Is it just me, or anyone else?


Think this is in the right place!?!?

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

Metal is p good. It depends on what kind of metal of course. A lot of it now is just pretty bland and boring.

The only genre I pretty much exclusively hate is reggae.

Metal is for greasy hair losers who play guitars screaming about how their dad beat their ass because they won't take a shower. Throw in some satanic lyrics and bash Christianity, and you're gold. They can't wash their hair or cut it because their true dream is to be a lion, as that's more br00tal

"ROOAAR MY DAD'S AN ASSHOLE"

"HE TRIED TO MAKE ME SHOWER"

"SHOWERS ARE NOT TR00 METAL"

"HAIL SATAN AND FUCK JESUS"

"ROOOAR"

Used to be totally absorbed in it.

Then I got away from it for a while and started writing music that *gasp* wasn't metal!

I still have reverence for it in the way that it's largely a very technical and artistically 'free' genre of music. These days though, I can't relate to or feel it anymore.

I've tried writing metal in the last few weeks and it just doesn't want to come out anymore. I'm a boring alt-rocker now, I think.
#13
Yeah! Metal totally blows! Can't stand it or the losers that listen to it... Oh.. Wait..


Edit: Also, metal sux lul

Personally I prefer wood surfaces over metal. They dont get as cold and the wood gives a warmer feel. I don't hate metal tho
#16
Is it just me, or has this been posted like 15 times this last week or so?

Music is music. It's the same notes, chords, and theory holding it together. While I may not be as fond of the cookie monster vocals (actually, that's the only thing about modern metal I don't like, the music sounds fine to me, generally speaking), that doesn't make it bad, or 'not music'.

It annoys people when I have Sabbath or Love and Death going, then my music player switches to Johnny Cash, or Luciano Pavarotti, or tunes from Sesame Street. Because C IS FOR COOKIE! THAT IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME! /metal

like most other genre of music, some is good and some is crap.

Love the music, hate the fans.
Of course, like most if not all genres, there's both good and bad music within the genre. I've found myself disliking harsh vocal, blast beat oriented metal more so as the years go by in favour of groove and melody. Still dig bands like Mastodon, Soilwork (older Soilwork, I found the new album for the most part blows) and Machine Head, but that's as "heavy" as my tastes go.
I'm not gonna bother voting on the poll because I don't think metal as a whole as either "meh it's alright" or "the best thing since discovering masturbation", despite being my "main" genre and being very passionate about music, the genre as a whole, nor any for that matter, is shit or amazing overall.

Don't worry, most of the metal forum regulars will hate the metal bands everyone else here likes, so already have something in common with a part of the metal forum.

I hate the people who hate the people who loathe the people who are offended by metal D:< D:< D:<

I used to be all about it. I still really love a lot of Metal bands but I've broadened out a little bit. Listening to the same genre constantly sounds awful. Even if it isn't terribly different, I need to mix it up on occasion.

There's really no other genre that gets me more pumped than metal. Only downside is that it hinders your ability to get some poon. Soon your dick will develop calluses like on your fingers from playing guitar, just because of the dark, grim, solitude.

No, I think that's mostly because of all Reddit social skills you got. Girls can't keep up.

So you hate absolutely everyone on UG?


You hate yourself?


You're so edgy and groundbreaking my god....


To the OP I don't hate metal, the amount of bands I listen to has significantly dropped because of the way metal is going but there are a few bands I still enjoy listening to.
Hardly any of my friends listen to metal at all TS so don't feel like you can't tell people you don't like it.

And to be quite honest metal is the main genre people on UG mock for one reason or another, at the end of the day it does have some of the worst music and worst fans of any music genre,

the fans are pretty cringey, but what I've realized quite recently is that they're no more pretentious or annoying as some fans of any other genre.
