Look up the various subgenres of metal on Wikipedia, match up the descriptions with the bands you wish to discuss.

EDIT: Judging by your "Favorite Groups" list, you should be most comfortable in the hardcore forums. Sorry to tell you that, cuz I hated hearing it too xD Luckilly, I'm more of a fan of Children of Bodom than I am of Tr.... nevermind... just check my profile
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

Use The Recommendation thread about bands you are uncertain about, also do a search for allready existant threads about the band you are looking for.

I dunno man, it took me a while to get used to these forums. I just avoid mentioning my favorite metalcore bands unless it's brought up by someone else.

people who like metal just do this. whilst not playing guitar it gives us something fun to do, classifying and catagorising and stuff.

also not all bands are on the reccomendation thread, wikipedia doesnt always work because of different peoples opinions, in the lamb of god thread someone said that they looked them up on wikipedia and it said they were metal but loads of people disagreed
booo.....

*shrugs* Can't help you there man xD Were you then directed back to the hardcore forum from here? Bands such as... Trivium (yeah, I went there baby!!) tend to be unaccepted by both boards. The metal guys call them posers, the hardcore guys call them metal. They're stuck in heavy music limbo, cursed to an eternity of bashing by both parties.


Like George Bush.

Hey, I would call them metal too (As I would.. well, you know), but they're pegged as metalcore. They're also fairly mainstream.. I think the only reason CoB is still accepted is because they're still so damn brutal, despite the toe they've stuck in the door of mainstream success.

I remember once saying that to me Megadeth are more of a hard rock then a metal band. I took me about a week to delete all the shitty PM's I got LOL
Dave Mustain has wrote some of the most amazing solos...
That he can't actually play!

The best thing to do is to just make a small note in your post like "(yeah, I know they're metalcore)" or "(even though they're metalcore)" if you just mention them in a conversation. But if it's a thread solely(sp?) about metal bands, then say something like "I don't know what you call these guys but...". Or simply check the third stickied thread on this forum: " Sticky: Thinking of posting about bands like Trivium, Lamb of God, A7X, etc: READ THIS!". It has many of the bands I would enjoy discussing here, but cannot because of thier pegged subgenre.

I'm tempted to do that now just for the hilarity.

booo.....

Well see, the thing is I KNOW they're not, but I BELIEVE that they should be able to fit in with the metal crowd. Perhaps I should have stated that in the first post rather than what I did say. Basically, dealing with the rules on these forums is like dealing with a girlfiriend: She's always right, and if you state otherwise, you're in trouble.

read the rules, follow the rules, if not...you get warned/banned
it doesnt matter what YOU THINK is metal, what matters is what WE KNOW is metal
My sig is better than yours
