Greatest cartoon metal band ever, probably only metal cartoon band ever.
but to the point

Does anyone think Dethklok isn't fast enough to be Deathmetal? Alot of people have said Dethklok is good, but not dark or fast enough to be in death metal. But when it comes right down to it, speed puts a band in the Speed metal or thrash metal catagory, like Slayer. Deathmetal is about dark lyrics and growling vocals over heavy guitars. I just want to see what other people think of the band. I like the show, but I like The Dethalbum better, probably one of the few deathmetal bands I listen to on a weekly bases.


hey, for anyone who didn't read, I DIDN'T SAY SPEED MAKES DEATH METAL, that's what other people said, you are ignorant ****s, actually learn how to read.

Forums on the internet are full of ignorant assholes who only read the first 4 words of a thread and respond, you are just making yourself seem stupider than you already are.

Even though this thread will get closed, soon or later, I'll just let you know mate, speed doesn't make Death Metal - Death Metal.

Some of the most influential and legendary DM bands make extensive use of Mid-Paced Tempos as well as 'Doom' Tempos (see Autopsy for an example).

Secondly, Dethklok is a parody band. I know they have an album out and all that, but still a parody - this basically nullifies them from being generally accepted as a DM. Plus they have large amounts of Melody in their Music, and a lot of other characteristics more relating to Melo-Death.

I never said speed made death metal, I said that's what other people say.
And I don't give a crap of all the other sub genres, it's kinda stupid, like Melo-death? what the hell is that? Death Metal for stoners.

Only Sub Genres that exist in my mind in the Metal genre is Death, Speed, and thrash.

Probaby, alot of stuff has been around before 91, but what does my age have to do with my view on sub genres, they just confuse everything. It should just be Rock, Metal, R&B, Jazz, country, and electronic/other.

You making this thread asking if Dethklok was death metal because they didn't feel like it is proof that those little subgenres help to classify stuff. Dethklok is a parody band but most of their stuff is melodeath as previously mentioned.

SO if Janne and Alexi did a gay porn, would I be the only one willing to buy it?

That's a dumb question, you know everyone in here would buy it too. I know I would!

Sub-genres are there so people can find other music they like.
If you just say "death metal" you might mean bands like In Flames, or Arch Enemy, or Nile, or Obituary. None of which sound the same.

Please explain how it makes it more confusing? The only confusing parts are the stupidity of genre names such as Hair Metal and almost all of the cores, but other than that, they help you find bands with similar sounds.

Duncang post time.



WEBBDIT: Sod it, leaves too much unsaid. The downright fucking retarded point you are making is that Doom metal is actually one of those three subgenres. What are you, 10?

Heh, im not a noob if anyone thinks so, i just posted this thread and gave lame replies to see if I could piss off some of you who think you know everything about music. Because it's fun to laugh at your responces. I bet no one reads this, and people keep giving stupid replies, but oh well. If you read this and you are a mod, just close the thread or w/e you do.

The guy who posted the Fall out Boy metal guitar thingy earlier is pretty much doing the same thing.

Don't, i do this when I can't sleep at night.
I usually just go around to other threads and look at responces, but no one really says something stupid to a thread unless someone else does first, so I have to like set a trap for people. It helps me sleep to know people get pissed off or think they are better than me, when they are like 30 and live in their parents basement.
