As you can tell, I'm not a fan of metal music. However, like every other 'genre' of music I am very respectfull of the artists and apreciate whatever music their playing its their form of expression.

Anyway, last night, I was stopping over at a mates house, and the three of us decided to watch Kerrang which was showing 'hardcore' summat-or-other videos.

One video I saw gripped me, by Kill Switch Engage. Can't remember the song, but the video had a medieval theme to it, and some very strange characters. Now alot of the videos I saw for this 'hardcore' stuff honestly looked like they were taking the piss. I found alot of it funny.


Its a bit of a stupid question, but are alot of these metal videos meant to be having a laugh? It's just the songs sounded perfectly serious, but the videos spoke otherwise.

So... are they really taking the piss?

Killswitch often take the piss. It just depends on the bands really, like any other genre of music.

Killswitch Engage isn't metal.

Even so, most metal videos are like that.

So yeah.

I think that's there Holy Diver cover you're thinking of, which the video, I think, is supposed to be similar to Dio's original.

(Dio's is much better by the way.)

+1 That's what you saw. And Dio's version is indeed better.

Metalcore, which is a subgenre of metal and hardcore. Some people just consider it hardcore more than metal.

I would say they are metal, metalcore to be exact, but they aren't allowed in the metal forum here for trafficking reasons. Some people seem to not get that.

Metalcore is a subgenre of metal. Metalcore bands are therefore metal.

Hell, ask the metal forum mods. They'll even admit it.
