    I'm about to delete this entire thread and break out the ban hammer if some folks don't use the ignore feature.

    MA HQ has clearly built a state-of-the-art science lab where they can perform a quantitative analysis to determine which bands are "close enough."

    There's probably also an app for that.

    Point taken. Now that I won't be seeing anymore moronic posts about SOAD and Static-X, I'm going to post some good metalcore.

    I think pretty much any band with big hair and eyeliner got lumped into the "glam" category. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, imo, cause i love me some full on glam, BUT, it wasn't necessarily true either. Motley, Twisted... no, i don't think early stuff was "glam"... they kinda went that way later though. WASP... i don't think they ever were glam. For me, i don't even think they fit into one genre (unless you wanna go broader "hard rock")... cause i mean they have the shock rock/in your face sexual innuendos, but they also have a very serious side as well... i dunno, but fuck I love them!

    How do you follow one of WASP's best songs with a heap of shit like that unplugged performance?

    EDIT: I love The Crimson Idol, but I care not for unplugged versions; they're one of the main reasons the '90's sucked.

    WASP is bad ass, and yeah I agree unplugged stuff was annoying.

    I couldn't possibly disagree anymore. i love their unplugged stuff... especially the idol. It shows another side to them. I love how emotion filled all their songs are... raw sexuality or desperation and despair... Blackie is amazing. It shows they can fucking own it whether its with a hardcore anthem or an acoustic ballad.

    I think if done well it is fantastic, but a lot of bands are terrible.

    The only DBM bands I can think of that are even good are Forgotten Woods and Mutiilation (if you count them).

    But the album version wasn't fully acoustic. The song suffers when stripped down to street performer level.

    EDIT: On DSBM, Xasthur's Subliminal Genocide was a decent album, Nocturnal Depression has some good soloing, and Shining is fucking amazing all the way around. Granted, only Nocturnal Depression is truly DSBM, and thus shows my general dislike for this genre.

    "DSBM" has gotta be one of the lamest acronyms going

    I don't even like the idea of black metal being a "suicidal" genre. It should be self-empowering if anything.
