    a lot of people say slipknot isn't metal
    i gotta ask a question

    what is metal then?

    i always thought if i could head-bang to it,
    then it was metal, maybe im wrong

    It's all subjective I reckon.

    Nothing is definitive.

    Although, heavily reverbed guitars and strong drum beats are probably what sets it appart from other styles.

    As for Slipknot... again, I say I hate them, but they are metal. Numetal. Popmetal. Still it is Metal.

    Metal is:
    - strong guitar riffs
    - fast, non stop bass guitar
    - solo guitars
    - complicated drums playing prefered a fast double bass
    - textured vox varried from very high to very low tones out of
    pop, rap, alternative, grunge sense
    - no electronic machines or effects like dj or similar rap or disco
    things
    - meaningful lyrics (no love lyrics)

    Metal is described as ideological music or the music of dissatifaction

    do you still consider slipknot as metal?
    i don't

    i feel like i want to dance with slipknot music!!
    but can you feel that with Slayer or Dimmu Borgir?

    dancing to slipknot?
    i dont know about that
    as for Slayer and Dimmu Borgir,
    i guess my response would be its different metal
    as for your definition of metal,
    i think lyrics have nothing to do with the type of music it is,
    how about instrumentals?
    liquid tension and some metallica songs come to my mind
    and i think those are metal, but they dont have meaningfull lyrics
    i think you can sing/scream about anything you want, or chose not to say anything and still be considered metal if the other pieces fall into place

    slipknot is the worst band running. The vocalist himself even admits they have rappish vocals. he said in a magazine that before he came along they were just death metal, he added the rap influences that made them what they are. i don't know how you people can like a band that is so shitty. it's terrible. all nu metal is terrible. wake up and look at what music really is.

    Dude, you are kidding right? I can name many bands that people on this board consider "metal" yet don't fall into some of these catergories.

    I kind of like some SOAD, Linkin Park and Papa Roach...(shoot me if you want), and I liked Slipknot, like when I was 15 or so. Then I got older and got into Opeth, In Flames, Dark Tranquility, Dan Swano, Pan-Thy-Monium, Death etc.. etc..

    So frankly, what the hells the point in liking Slipknot when there are so many better bands out there? Hell...I even like Linkin Park better, at least the main guy can sing pretty well! I;m sure many people here hate them for being 'trendy' but they're a lot better than Slipknot!

    Slipknot is one of the gayest bands on earth and cant play for shit, and are about as heavy as Linkin Park and musically inclined and complex as a retard with downsyndrome.
