@SirSkeletorThe3rd - people created mostly "core" subgenres because they read the list description above.
However, every time I hear a subgenre with "core" in the name I expect to hear more punk than metal. Typical metal subgenres have metal in the name, except for metalcore, which is mostly punk as of today. Currently metalcore is punk and even pop punk influenced by metal. Ironically, the name metalcore suggests that this is the essence of metal (haha).
And no, metal should not become associated with the "core" genres. Hardcore was the first "core" subgenre and it was a punk subgenre, not a metal subgenre. Metal is very often confused with punk and I really hate this. - Metal_Treasure
Really? Huh, I kinda expected things with Metal in their name and only a couple of core genres - SirSkeletorThe3rd
Snoring sounds in metal could be put into the black/death metal songs.
I like how every single entry on this list has core in the name. IS THIS WHAT METAL HAS BECOME?! - SirSkeletorThe3rd

@RiverClanRocks - Technical versions of metal subgenres are more sophisticated and progressive, and require even more virtuosity. For example, technical thrash metal and technical death metal are more complex than the regular thrash and death metal. - Metal_Treasure
