srs argument time though:
I think it's fair to separate a band's music from their image, which results in said "fagdom". After the Burial and Veil of Maya kind of look like either metalheads or normal dudes, so they're definitely not in the realm of fagdom. Gauges in the guys in Within the Ruins makes them fair candidates for fagdom. With Winds of Plague and Emmure, I find their image to be more like "fake-alpha/douche hardcore bros", which is mutually exclusive from fagdom. It's fair to call Mitch from Suicide Silence a member of fagdom, but the others are definitely death metal-wannabes.
Bands like Bring Me the Horizon, Devil Wears Prada and Asking Alexandria all fit the description for fagdom sufficiently. I would actually argue that August Burns Red is the most faggable image of any band, since their entire outfits are almost solely taken straight off the mannequins at the Gap, which is the shit real homosexuals actually wear.
