    Now there is...I was working on it.

    I just listed example bands beside each subgenre(sorry, that was kind of pointless.)

    I did it just to provide some definition.

    Trad/heavy. I'm lumping NWOBHM into that. Thrash metal is a very close second, and for both sub-genres I lean towards the progressive side of things.

    Bathory isn't a great choice as a defintion of black metal, since most their albums aren't black metal. Anyhow, black metal is the best.

    The intersection of black/folk/post metal. For the poll I chose trad heavy metal though.

    Since I could vote for more than one, I voted for Thrash, Doom, Death, and Traditional.

    If I was supposed to vote for only one, then a mod can change it to Thrash.

    Topic has been done too many times, but anyway, yes, it is BLACK METAL Hail Satan, fuck a goat, drink some blood, etc etc.... Death Metal is for kids who like looking at blood rather than drinking it, Thrash is for kids who haven't discovered blast beats yet, Doom is for stoner kids that care more about plants than music, and Traditional is for people who are 80+ years old....

    not trying to be a dick, but these categories/examples aren't the best...

    would prob vote for Viking/folk if it were listed here. Voted for power metal instead. I dunno... don't think I really have a favorite genre. And many of my favorite bands don't really fall into a particular category anyway.
