    How do people listen to this king of Music like Slipknott, Killswitch Engage and that kind of tripe, ive been listening to it and its absolutely ****e.

    Its grown men screaming down a mic words you cant understand, i mean WTF..............and im talking about all metal music with loud Drums and screaming in the back, its shocking how anyone can like it.

    Not me :)

    A few of us here went to Sonisphere which is a heavy metal festival last weekend - the 'offending' Slipknot played there and blew me away.

    Metal music is typically aggressive, but there is a huge range within that very wide genre, lyrically and musically. I actually think Slipknot lyrics are very easy to decipher compared to many bands out there... god forbid you try to listen to Cannibal Corpse :p

    Part of the appeal is the rebellious nature of it, the loud, bruising guitars and drums pointing their middle finger up and anything and everything.

    Some is more accessible that others, so I would suggest you try something a bit more mainstream and see what you think. It doesn't get much more 'easy' than this:

    I think it's pretty terrible, but if you are looking for something you won't like... you definitely won't like it :p

    Listen to the song I posted above :)

    lol I love electronic dance music in all it's forms so much so there isn't much else I listen to these days but I shall never, ever forget my late child and early teens music listening to Metallica, Soundgarden etc. Might not be the proper heavy dark metal stuff but I loved it all the same. Rebellious, noisy and it was all with live instruments etc.

    When I hear a good metal track on the radio I can't help but turn it up and rock out to it !!

    Same arguments could be applied to all types of music. ie Dance...How can anyone listen to same looped electronic garbage for 5 mins etc etc blah blah blah.
    I'm a massive metal fan and always have been, some of my most memorable times have been at some severely heavy concerts and I actually met my wife while in a mosh pit.

    I don't however moan about all other types of music, well at least not since I grew pubes anyway.

    Its about choice and personal taste dude. Chill out, grow up and accept that everyone likes different things.

    1. The art or science of combining vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.

    That's how.



    That's about as accurate as Stevie Wonder playing darts.

    What do you listen to then?

    That's possibly one of the most ignorant ass and overtly pretentious statements I've seen today on the forum. Congrats.

    errr, thats death metal. A subgenre. Lazarus A.D are probably closer to thrash metal than most, i guess, but i fail to see how how most 'metal' groups fail under your amazingly ill-informed blanket statement.

    Its a bit silly telling people they are wrong because you don't like the music.

    I personally don't like it either, but why should my opinion overthrow someone else's?

    Good for them. It's not like what one considers music is entirely subjective or anything.
