    I think you're just mad that you're not an in-crowder. You should actually be happy, my little garden gnome.

    I don't know what you own, but I'd try Queen II if you don't have that one.

    Burzum is pretty cool. I find it interesting how Varg doesn't consider it Black Metal at all. He's a funny old man.

    i really hate the cliches that go with heavy metal like doing drugs and drink tons of alcohol. I think that doesn't have anything to do with the music itself..maybe it's a lifestlyle lived by some bands but I don't think that it's the point about the music.

    don't know if it was related to the thread is that supposed to be related to particular bands?

    Interesting post. Which bands have experimented and pushed the boundaries of the genre? Do you think the lack of experimentation is due to fear of backlash from the metal community?

    part of the problem is certainly an us vs. them mentality entrenched in hardcore metal fans regarding bands with no real understanding of/passion for metal who sprinkle superficial elements of metal onto non-metal genres. metalheads love to assert their metalness and their disdain for these bands by liking bands that are as archetypically metal as possible.

    Yeah, I don’t know a whole lot of people who liked Trivium and then went on to classic material. I was in high school when they were huge.

    I didn't say I think metal is lacking in boundary-pushers, just that if we did lack them that would be what I'd consider a disgrace.

    I'm not in-crowd.

    Not true at all. Production for me is contextual, I wouldn't want A Blaze in the Northern Sky's production on Infrared Horizon and vice-versa.

    Indeed, like you and your fellow Babymetal fans. Thank the Gods you exist so that metal music doesn't disappear.
