I'm personally not a huge metal fan, but lately I have noticed that people are calling things like fight star metal, and I thought this was odd because I thought they were more a classic rock sort of band.

So after my long elaboration I ask can someone please define what makes music metal

In chemistry, a metal (Greek: Metallon) is an element that readily loses electrons to form positive ions (cations) and has metallic bonds between metal atoms.

Edit: Haha omfg beaten. :[

anyway, metal music is defined by agrresiveness usually. Plenty of distortion on the guitars, and the lyrics aren't always, but can be about darker subjects than most music. Metal is hard to define as a whole because the sub-genres are what make it unique.

Nothing is metal.

As soon as you define something as metal, it becomes popular and therefore SUCKS!!!!!

Example, you've heard of Behemoth, right?

WELL THAT MEANS THEY SUCK!!!!


...there are plenty of metal bands, but no one has heard of them, and as soon as they do they will cease to be metal.

Therefore actually finding and listening to a metal band is impossible.
