burzum IS nazi. well, varg is.
People say all sorts of things that I think are totally metal aren't metal. The most recent one I can think of is Between the Buried and Me. I saw them at Progressive Nation and they seemed totally metal to me. Not my cup of tea, but they were pretty metal.

Even Avenged Sevenfold. I know they kinda suck, but they're still metal in my books. They cover all the bases as far as being metal, they just don't do it to my liking. I can see why having subgenres could be OK for telling people what kind of music a band plays, because Pagan Death metal and 80's thrash sound pretty different, but they shouldn't be taken to heart.

Call me old fashioned, but I hate all these subgenres. If it's metal it's metal, we can either get along, headbang and mosh or argue about retarded genre names, take your pick.
Lamb of God combines thrash and groove metal with hardcore.

That's metal+hardcore

which means it's metalcore. and metalcore =/= metal. Simple as that.
