Now it's time for the third Round. System Of A Down, ACDC and Judas Priest gone. It's coming close to the end. Who will make the last 8?
You Decide.

Black Sabbath vs Motorhead

Led Zeppelin vs Dio

Megadeth vs Iron Maiden

Children Of Bodom vs Edguy

Pink Floyd vs Pantera

Helloween vs Overkill

Slayer vs King Diamond

Heaven & Hell vs Anthrax

Personally I found these pairings to be the toughest of them all. It's just cruel. But, there can only be one winner. And my favourite Tool are now gone :(.

That hurt just a little. I really do like metal, it just isn't the only thing I listen to. I think the real elitists are those who listen to mostly metal and think it's geigh when people listen to stuff that's a bit softer.

:wtf: :hecho: There isn't a single person on here I can think of that "doesn't really like metal." I'm totally confused.

Maybe just because not everyone has such a short range of taste :rolleyes: "Let's see here, from Pink Floyd to Slayer, right on!"

Or wait, "Dragonforce to Manticora", now that's broad for ya :lol: Yeah, real shocker that people like A LOT of non-metal, myself definitely included.

Let's break it down like this, looking at just my iTunes and how I separate genres:

"Ambient"- 8 artists
"Folk"- 8 artists
"Hardcore/Punk"- 14 artists
"Jazz"- 2 artists
"Latin"- 1 artist
"Metal"- 292 artists
"Progressive"- 66 artists
"Rock"- 229 artists

So, as I assume you were referring to me and Brad in that post, I hope you realize that the vast majority of music I listen to is indeed metal, but that it's practically NECESSARY to listen to other stuff too.

If you listened to more good metal I wouldn't mock you :cool: How the music is classified doesn't really matter, it only matters whether I (or you, or whoever) likes it or not.

So, as I assume you were referring to me and Brad in that post, I hope you realize that the vast majority of music I listen to is indeed metal, but that it's practically NECESSARY to listen to other stuff too.

You seem to be a huge advocate of a view I cannot stand.

I hate people who condemn those for being "too close-minded" just cause they don't constantly rave about the other music they like, or fall one extra genre short of their interests.
Just because you don't ever hear me talk about music that's not metal, does by NO MEANS mean I don't listen to any. Hell, I've become a HUGE classical music nerd over the past 2 years so, and my interests stretch to various other genres as well, I'm on a board titled "metal setlists", keyword there being metal, so when I come here, I'll give you one guess at what I'm expecting to talk about.
All you need to know about me is as follows:
I am open to anything you throw at me, but I have absolutely no plans on listening to it if it doesnt meet standards I have for what I listen to. I have absolutely no motive to listen to music I dislike for one reason or another just so I can meet someone else's standards of being open-minded. I know what I like, and my favorite bands and most-listened to things totally reflect it, which brings me to something else.
I think your biggest problem with me comes from the fact that I'm admittedly a huge power metal freak. I don't have a problem with you not liking the music or me, but you are a big hypocrite for taking the stance you have taken.
If you were as open and broad-minded as you claim, you would've taken the time to realize that by and far, not nearly all power metal meets the stereotypes perplexed about it. While many bands do uphold the traditions of cheesy battle and such, there are just as many bands within the genre that are far from that. I don't have any problem with people that don't like power metal as long as they've given most of it a fair chance and don't pick on it using stereotypes that are more false than true.

I think theres certain standards you have to have before you can call yourself a fan. If some guy came on here and said "Iron Maiden blows but Cradle of Filth rules" then he would obviously be called a poser and discredited. But if someone came here and said "Iron Maiden rocks and I also like Cradle of Filth" then he obviously has the right taste (eh, for the most part) and people might take what he has to say a bit more seriously.

Thats because Pink Floyd is better than In Flames. You seem like you're glorifying any metal band just because its in the metal genre, despite what kind of talent they have. Stop trying so hard to be "hardcore metalhead", noones gonna say "Oh here comes Cameron, the metal guru, he's so cool" when you walk down the halls at school. (especially when you don't like Manowar)

I came in way too late, but metal can get very self-parodying, and I'd go crazy if I didn't mix it up with other genres. In fact, if all I listened to was metal, I'd probably lose my faith in the genre for good.

DethMaiden
12-22-2006, 02:38 AM
And anyway, I haven't been making fun of anyone for liking exclusively metal or whatever, so I don't know why Addi and I are taking flak for our tastes being a little less acceptable to the metal community.

I agree that someone who is a metalhead, can like other types of music too. With me there aren't all that many but there are a few. It really depends mostly what you define as metal. I agree that ACDC, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin not metal.

It is a bit hypocritical to say you like all metal, or to listen to really heavy stuff for the sake of trying to pose or be cool. It's just not unless you really do enjoy the music. That's my view on things.

I think theres certain standards you have to have before you can call yourself a fan. If some guy came on here and said "Iron Maiden blows but Cradle of Filth rules" then he would obviously be called a poser and discredited. But if someone came here and said "Iron Maiden rocks and I also like Cradle of Filth" then he obviously has the right taste (eh, for the most part) and people might take what he has to say a bit more seriously.

I listen to Iron Maiden WAY more than I listen to Cradle of Filth, and you still insult me...:eyes:

I came in way too late, but metal can get very self-parodying, and I'd go crazy if I didn't mix it up with other genres. In fact, if all I listened to was metal, I'd probably lose my faith in the genre for good.

I see what you're saying, IF you listen to just one type of metal. You can listen to a variety of metal and get a TON of variety. Not saying you shouldn't listen to anything else, you should, but it's stupid to say that metal has no variety and style difference within it.

I said this in a different thread, but I still think it's true: You can listen to every variety of metal in existence, but in the end it's still metal. IMO, you can't really say you have broad tastes if that's the case.

Frankly, it's pretty :tp:-inducing when people accuse those who don't listen to metal 24/7 of not being a metalhead. Just because I'm sitting here relaxing with a Regina Spektor album doesn't mean I won't go totally apeshit at a Maiden show, or start spontaneously headbanging whenever I hear Slayer.

PS- Some of you guys are really beating a dead horse with the whole "ADD loves Tool" thing. If you don't knock it off, I'll be forced to divert the attention from him by becoming increasingly vocal in my belief that Sleater-Kinney is better than virtually any band that you listen to, and not only can they be heavier than some metal bands, but they have a guitar duo that puts Downing/Tipton and their ilk to shame.

This is true.

To be honest, he's calmed down about it lately. (Might have something to do with his newfound distate for his fellow Tool fan :D )

Can you recommend a good one to start with?

It's just due to the lack of Tool activity lately. But once the next U.S tour gets goin, look for the 7-day bans to start turning into month-long endeavours :lol:
