    Put a sausage on those two girls and you have a Pantera-tribute wannabe.

    Let's be real, if they were men, would this post even be here? Probably not. If they did not dress like trash, would we even care? Probably not. What does irk me is that these people get attention while the Femme-metal landscape is littered with people of far better talent. Why are we paying attention to these fame whores while Kim Goss, Melissa Ferlaak and Abby Clutario are teaching, Quinn Weng is developing software, and Sabrina Valentine is at Big Box Mart cleaning up in aisle number 9*? Even add the Original poster to this thread in this mix who should be getting more exposure. It is just sad. :(


    *Sabrina has mentioned that publicly in the past.

    Because you turn a blind eye to one form of sexualization while condemning another.

    Bring Me The Horizon is as generic as they come - there are hundreds of bands that literally sound exactly like that, but because girls want to bang them, they're one of the biggest bands in the whole of metal and people eat that shit up. They're "rockstars." You can talk about the music all you want but at the end of the day, nobody complains when they see some shirtless Swedish dude in leather pants, but when girls do the same thing it's slutty and a cashgrab. I'm no femanazi, in fact, I agree with that position as well, but I do call it as I see it.

    Actually, I do. I'm not a big fan of dudes taking off their shirt on stage if their music is bad. To me that's just trying to sell yourself off of your looks while not having the skills to back it up and I -HATE- that. To be perfectly honest, my favorite "stars" in the metal world aren't all that good looking. (Forgive me, Dio. You were beautiful in spirit.)

    I'll give you another example. The lead guitarist in my old band used to do that. He'd go on stage in leather pants and take off his shirt. I used to think it was weird and silly. I still do.

    guys with 6-pack abs are going to be filmed without their shirts on
    it's been like that since the creation of MTV
    Aeonic Slumber has kinda got a point
    the crappy-singing-voice-guy with the 6-pack abs is going to make more money than the good-sounding-singer-guy that's got a beer-belly
    it's unfair to the guy that sings good, but that's just the way it is in this hyper-visual-music-VIDEO-world

    video really has killed the radio star

    Maybe.. but that's never been my cup of tea. I look for musical beauty. I mean.. nobody can tell me that Hansi is the greatest looking guy in the world, but when I saw him, I squealed like he was Elvis!

    I understand that it's a moneymaking thing, but if I wanted to make money, I wouldn't have become a musician.. XD

    i don't want to get too far into my personal life, but i spend alot of time interacting with people that are 100% completely totallly blind and also alot of time with people that are 100% deaf

    the blind people spend all day listening to Christina Agulera, telling me her voice is awesome and asking me how the hell Britney spears makes money when she's got such a crappy singing voice

    but the deaf people spend all day watching the visuals in music videos, epsecially Brittney's videos

    the blind people also like other artists and the deaf people also love lady gaga's videos and the video for Katy Perry's firework and E T , but i mention specifically Britney and Cristina because i'm constantly hearing Britney and Christina being mentioned in the same breath, mostly people bitching about how Christina's got the better singing voice but Brittney's got more money
    Britney's got kids now, and she's got enough money to have her grandchildren's grandchildren live off of, and that's just the money Britney had in the bank the day before anyone knew who the hell Cristina Agulara was
    if britney had her vocal chords removed today, and they both lived another 10 years, and if christina made another 5 albulms, and if britney and cristina then both died the same day, there'd still be a chance of britney dying with more money in the bank, it's not fair to christina, but britney's got the visual thing going on, and at the end of the day, brittney having her vocal chords removed would somehow result in her getting a huge payday immediately after the surgery being broadcasted on live tv

    it's not fair to christina, but it's just the way the world is now

    if you gave them identical hair
    stripped off all their make-up
    had them both do sit-ups and pilates till they both had 0% bodyfat
    and stripped off all their clothes
    then they'd look like identical twins

    they have different hair/different make-up/different clothes is because they both have Public Image Management Personnel,
    you've never seen britney put on an outfit that christina has already worn, or vice versa, because they're not allowed to do that, they both have management control what clothes they wear, and they're not allowed to dress like each other

    They're both skinny blondes, yeah, but their faces are very different.

    Sorry, but this is total bullshit! If the only reason these women were in a metal band was to make money, they could have stayed working for Playboy and made a lot more.

    I really hate it that narrowminded people use money and sales as an excuse to say that certain women in the music scene must be talentless because they dress provocatively. Obviously if a women dresses sexy, she could only be doing it for the money ... or because she wants to be raped, right? :rolleyes: I feel it's the same type of narrowmindedness that insinuates both of these ideas.

    If women in metal choose to dress in a sexy way, it's because that's what they want to do. No one is forcing these women to wear what they wear (or don't wear). As it's already been stated here, men wear all kinds varieties of stage clothes and metalheads don't sit around questioning their motives. It's only when a women decides to show some skin, or wear a corset, or wear jeans and a t-shirt, that the metal community feels the need to sit around and start questioning the motives of someone's clothing. It's stupid.

    i'm not saying that they're faces look 100% completely totally identical
    but if they had the same hair, same make-up, same outfit, they'd look like twins, which is the whole reason that the 2 of them have Public Image Management Personnel, if they were walking around in the same make-up, same hair styles, same clothes, you might get an instance of paparazzi taking pictures of one while they think they are taking pics of the other, Public Image Management Personnel prevent that type of thing from happening

    no one forces a girl to dress provocatively just the same as no one forces the women to make money, it's greed that makes the women dress in the way that generates money

    Back in the day for sure. I was huge into Christina (her looks anyway, her singing/songs were shit imo) and never got the Britney hype at all. Today though they're both kind of gross imo.

    Yeah I mean, it is just how it is. I like some of these bands. I love Asking Alexandria for example, but I also know that the reason why they play sheds opening for Slipknot or Avenged Sevenfold is because girls want to bang Danny or Ben. If you're in a "pro" band, you're kidding yourself if you don't think looks matter. Even in metal. A bunch of fat dudes/ladies with baggy jeans and oversized band t shirts will probably get less attention than dudes/ladies who are fashionable and in shape. It's not called a "show" for nothing after all.

    Booth Babes at E3 make about 800 bucks a day give or take. You really think a girl who stands around smiling and pretending to like vidya gaems in booty shorts for 8 hours a day for 3 days would do that if it wasn't for that measly amount of money? You act like getting a job at Playboy is easy, like those people who say "if I wanted to make money in music, I'd write pop songs," like just anyone could turn a platinum single around at any time.

    Comeparing a woman who flaunts her sexuality in a band to get more attention and hopefully sell records and earn more money for the band to the misogynist argument that women who dress skimpy deserve to be raped because they were asking for it is left field nonsense. Those women who get raped are not in the public eye. If you're in a band, playing live and making music videos, releasing records - your singer putting on spandex pants or not putting on a shirt at all (for dudes) for the photoshoot wasn't an accident. I don't care if you're a man or woman - you're in the public eye, and people that flaunt their sexuality are doing it for attention, because that's the whole point. You're an entertainer, you're SUPPOSED to get their attention. Otherwise, release records from your basement and call yourself Count Grishnackh :p. (Not you, you of course the hypothetical you.)

    I mean really, you think this band in the OP is calling itself "slut metal" because of some random coincidence? SERIOUSLY?

    in addition to the girls that want to "bang Danny and Ben" you got to take into consideration the fact that when Asking Alexandria is opening for Slipknot or Avenged Sevenfold, the whole fucking reason that any females are in the fucking building is because females want to bang the band members of Slipknot and Avenged Sevenfold, yeah, there are lesbians and asexual females that listen to that type of music on their i-pods, but when you look at females in the audience of a metal concert, 99% of the females in the audeince are as-horny-as-hell straight girls wanting to bang whichever metal playing male is onstage
    a band REFERRING TO ITSELF as "slut metal"??? that's very clearly nothing more than a publicity stunt, and probably a very successful one

    Are you serious? This is probably the most offensive thing you could possibly add to this conversation. It's quite out of line calling 99% of women sluts with loose morals just because they're at a show where some good-looking men are on stage. Sure sure, the women might think the guys are hot but are you really going to sit there and say that we'd all drop our panties and fuck whoever comes along swinging their "I'm in a band" swag in our faces like we're some easily-hypnotized weak-willed hoes? Oh, but wait, I should calm down. You only mean women who are at "popular band" shows. And it's okay, I can still go to a show and be a lesbian or a-sexual, cuz we all know that women just exist for sex, right? And we're totally never actually there because we might actually enjoy the music, huh? Just because there aren't a lot of straight women into a certain type of music doesn't mean those who are there just want to get fucked by the band.

    I'm so baffled and annoyed that I can hardly construct a proper sentence to express the ignorance in your post. I know you're going to try to defend your statement, probably add some backpeddling, and make it look like you didn't just say the most warped thing ever seen on this forum, but this, and this entire thread, is so utterly fucking retarded that I can't even continue thinking about this. Thanks for increasing my general hatred of the human race.
