Top Ten Reasons Why Black Metal is Better Than Thrash Metal and Hard Rock

Lucretia

The Top Ten

1 Black metal has a lot of variety, thrash metal and hard rock usually sound similar.

Ha, that's only Slayer. Master of Puppets, One, Symphony of Destruction, and Tornado of Souls all sound different.

Thrash metal and hard rock sounding similar is a bad thing? Also, thrash and hard rock have way more variety. - CostcoHotDogs

These are pretty mediocre reasons, it's just that you like Black Metal more? Isn't it? - EliHbk

Nah, black metal is pretty basic - EliHbk

2 Black metal vocalists usually require better vocals then thrash and hard rock.

Hard rock singers have better vocal range. - Skullkid755

"Boris the Spider" - zxm

Robert Plant or Dead? Dave Mustaine or Kristian Larsson Vikernes? - Lucretia

That’s not true. Actually decent vocals > terrible growling. - CostcoHotDogs

Rock has very good growling in some cases. Boris the Spider. Sounds very good to me. - zxm

3 Black metal has Burzum, Emperor, 1349, Gorgoroth, Limbonic Art, and Mayhem while other genres only have bands like Van Halen and AC/DC.

Metallica, Guns N Roses, etc. - EliHbk

Thrash metal has bands like Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, Exodus, Overkill, And Testament. Hard rock has bands like Motörhead. Black metal is boring, repetitive, and awful. - CostcoHotDogs

At least Thrash doesn't have bands like Gorgoroth and Cradle. And Hard Rock has Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath, and so much more! - SoldierOfFortune

4 Black metal musicians don't write albums like Risk or St. Anger, or Van Halen 3.

Thrash metal musicians write albums like Ride The Lightning, Rust In Peace, The New Order, Seasons In The Abyss, etc. Black metal < Thrash Metal. - CostcoHotDogs

Dawn Of The Black Hearts, In Adhorrence Dementia, Moon In The Scorpio, Instinctus Bestialis... - Lucretia

5 Black metal bands release many high quality albums.

And thrash bands don’t? - CostcoHotDogs

6 Black metal has many waves, hard rock and thrash do not.

Although the first wave isn't real and everything amazing is second wave. - Lucretia

Yes they do! - CostcoHotDogs

7 Thrash metal and hard rock inspire nu metal, black did not.

I mean to say Pantera inspired nu metal. - Lucretia

So what if they inspired a genre? They didn’t mean to inspire it, also not a reason. - CostcoHotDogs

8 Black metal can address political issues, all hard rock talks about is rock and roll.

Some of it you just need to understand it, some don't - Lucretia

That’s only AC/DC. Thrash metal can address them as well; damn near every Metallica or Megadeth song ever addresses important issues. - CostcoHotDogs

9 Black metal has a higher variety of sub genres.

So rock is the root of everything else... hard rock, which has like nothing, and metal, which has thrash and black, but there is only technical thrash. - Lucretia

Suicidal depressive bm, raw bm, symphonic bm, what does thrash have besides technical? This is a reason for more variety really which is good. - Lucretia

Thrash metal and hard rock don’t? Thrash doesn’t have that many sub genres, but that’s not a reason. Hard rock has heavy metal, and a whole ton of subgenres come from that. - CostcoHotDogs

10 Black metal bands never switch genres like some thrash and hard rock bands.

You seem to be forgetting Ulver, who took a HUGE risk by switching to more electronic music and still making it as good as their black metal works. - djpenquin999

Um, thrash metal musicians can experiment without selling out. Black metal musicians suck anyway. - CostcoHotDogs

Sometimes, they do. Celtic Frost made a glam album, and some fake bands switch but usally they don't and they never sel out - Lucretia

The Contenders

11 It has more hipster appeal.

In reality, this is the main reason. - djpenquin999
