There's at least a small bit of difference between feces and music.

And for the record, I've also listened to Whitechapel and don't like them. But, like treghet said, being open minded also means being accepting of other people's opinions.

There's a difference between saying a band sucks and politley saying you aren't into a band. For instance, if I would've went to this show I would've only went to see VOM. Instead of saying 'Whitechapel sucks, burn in hell for liking them', I would've said something along the lines of 'I would go to this for VOM, not a big fan of Whitechapel, probably would've left before they went on.'

Am I being irrational here?

No, it's not. Ever listen to anything like Painted in Exile, or The Contortionist?

And, hardcore dancing didn't orginate within deathcore. Breakdowns in deathcore were not initially written in mind of hardcore dancing, it's just become a part of the scene.

Ok, here it goes. I can't keep silent any longer.

I'm going to preface this post with an important quote from hot_turkey_ed in "The Law -- Fuck With It At Your Own Peril" thread:

So that's one of the only laws here. Easy enough to understand...

Wait, what? Why post this? Because deathcore is a subgenre of metal, and this is metalsetlists.com. Why NOT post it? And saying "Deathcore is loathed here mostly" is incredibly arrogant. There's plenty of people here, me included, who like it and are attending this concert and want to see the setlists because, fuck, thats the whole purpose of this site. But kommie isn't done...

Ok, bro, you don't like deathcore. Cool beans. You don't need to troll us on that fact. And no, deathcore is not ALL breakdowns; listen to some All Shall Perish and tell me they don't have some of the best solos out there today in metal.

...and if we didn't get the clue that kommie here doesn't like deathcore, he has to be a pretentious dick and just rub it in. I'm pretty sure this is falling under the 'mindless' bashing hot_turkey_ed was trying to avoid with us.

How many mindlessly bashing people can be on this site?

Scratch that, make it 2 more.

U Fuck!
Well fuck me blind, 3 more! Though coltongsmith pushes me over the edge here. Personally, nothing is going to come close to the sheer brutality and utter monstrosity that is Nile live; I can't picture music getting heavier than that. That being said, who in the fuck are you to judge what other people judge as heavy? So pretentious. Thats mindless bashing if I've ever seen it.

And now comes our little Trollic friend, ratcat90. Oh boy, oh boy...

The only thing that is respectable is that they have their own headlining tour and are playing at places like Pops in Sauget and the House of Blues in Chicago. Keep it Metal friends
First of all, I'm pretty sure there's a rule here that we want everybody over the age of 13. Based on the hideous display of grammar I just read, I'm feeling you are 12 at the oldest. You don't like Whitechapel. Go make a thread on it. I get on this thread because

1.) I'm a fan of Whitechapel
2.) I'm going to see 'em live
3.) I want to get an idea of their setlists.

If I want immature pricks telling me their elitist fucking opinion on music, I'll go to the goddamn Mayhem forums.

Cool! Then don't comment on this thread!

True, this is a site for people to speak their minds. Intelligent, smart metal fans. People who respect the music for what it is.

Did you ever consider WHY people who like deathcore post here? Because Whitechapel's site and deathcore sites are full of pretentious dicks. Deathcore assholes. We're all real metal fans here; we love our Slayer and our Iron Maiden and our Opeth. Hell, I'm blasting The Godhead's Lament as I type this. But some of us- unbelievably- also like deathcore. And we want a friendly, mature environment to discuss our likes with other similar metal fans. We want an intelligent metal discourse. That's why I fell in love with this site late last year; there's some of the most mature metal forum posters on any internet site.

What is this site coming to? Is it truly falling from the grace that I thought it represented? Fucking unbelievable. At least we still got some more mature posters like Treghet and even manks coming in to defend the position of our right to post and discuss deathcore. I used to think the hardcore Emmure fans are what made metal look like shit... now I'm seeing a new breed of assholes emerge with some of the posters on this thread.

Anyway, If you've read my wall of text this far, thank you. And please don't ever post a quote from this fictitious figure ever again:
