    Prozak, who writes the articles on deathmetal.org? Is it you? Is Conservationist a part of that site? I remember him from somewhere and understood he was behind that site too.. Also, who wrote all the reviews on ANUS? Was it more than one person?

    Thanks for the answers. I'm kinda lost in who "staff" is above the deathmetal.org site's articles.

    I'm going to have to agree with this.

    That and some guys think metal is some exclusive club and certain rules apply to you or you don't belong. Good music exists outside of metal. Variety is the spice of life. Etc.

    I don't think prozak would disagree that good music exists outside of metal. I think he's simply saying that some of that good music has no place in metal, and vice-versa. Which is certainly hard to argue against.

    I'd also like to note that both a focus on aesthetics and a sense of xenophobia are tangible in the sentence I quoted, so if we're lining ourselves up for a real argument here, prepare for ad hominems, straw men, ipse dixits and any other fallacy you can imagine.

    I will say this. Post-rock/shoegaze/(emo?)/post-hardcore metal hybrids are definitely hitting it off with a fanbase that is not standard fare for metal. When I saw deafheaven in June, there were so many athletic types and cute girls there, you would have thought you were at a reggae concert.

    I think it's time to get the army organized and destroy all the greedy. Gold is important to them, they think it has value. Might as well worship the sun and moon.
    They are diseased.

    Think the dark army is the only force that can.

    I actually find this guy pretty hilarious, it kinda seems he is the same dude as UltimateApathy though. My guess this account here is the full on troll account and UA is the "partially serious but lets make it clear I'm a complete retard account."

    I know I'm flogging a dead horse, preaching to the choir and that this is old news but I just have to mention how annoyed I am with how every single metal related review on RYM or Amazon mentions Deafheaven in said review, even if it has absolutely nothing to do with them at all. It could be blackened avant garde folk disco brutal sludgecore and the reviewer would somehow find a way to work something about deafheaven in there. They usually sound like "in a post deafheaven world" or "deafheaven this" or "deafheaven that" or "sunbather was leik so innovative and inovativey that it's like innovative"

    I actually liked Sunbather. A lot. But the sheer amount of praise they've received is almost disgusting. Bands have been incorporating post rock and shoegaze into metal/black metal for years now. Why are so many people under the impression that they "saved" or "brought black metal out of the dark ages"?

    It isn't even black metal...or really metal in any way. It just appropriated some of the black metal aesthetic and fused it with Envy style screamo.

    In regards to the 'girlfriend metal' thing... yeah, retarded. That's exactly what I fuckin said, I wanted to see how it'd go over here. The dude who said it's logic is that thrash is the only genre where men can be men and you won't see chicks at the shows except for dykes and girlfriends desperate to save the relationship. Which is also bullshit, because I know more Slayer chick fans than girls who have even heard of the doom subgenre.
