    All this category banter really sux, what's metal or not, this is 'brutal' or 'heavy' or 'thrash' or 'grindcore'. Who fucking cares----I don't think we should try to correct each other so much---including myself......just a thought. Besides....we needed a new thread.:devil:

    Catagories are confusing. So much. I wonder half the time, where they come up with them.

    Sometimes I think it's the Record Co. or the bands, at an attempt to single themselves out from the rest of the pack. We are new, we are original, we sound like no other. Bullshit!!!

    I know they have a use, I'm saying as far as correcting each other and pissing each other off with debates over categories.:devil:

    plain NOISE? :heh: :D

    naw... what's annoying when it comes to categorisation is, that they are not taken as helping tool to get an idea of how the band sounds like but are taken as strict definitions.

    Yeah, gotta agree with you there, but they can be fun.

    unfortunately, what's to me most obvious joking, is for others most serious :eek:

    Idiocy. :rolleyes:

    Just because something confuses you doesn't mean it shouldn't exist. I think that Trig is too confusing... who fucking cares about it? Lets get rid of it!

    Also, what's more confusing... describing what a band sounds like in musical terminology or by simply stating the genre or sub-genre they belong to, maybe with additional descriptors?

    Again... idiocy. I've noticed that the only people against genre-labeling are the people who don't understand it.

    Also, how are they confusing? I've been listening to metal for a little over two years (thrash, melodic death, doom, and symphonic black), raw black metal for about a year, and brutal death/grind/noise since the beginning of this year!

    Obviously, if you don't know about the traits of the different genres, you don't care enough to find out.
