Reasons Why Metal is Dying in 2015


The Top Ten

1 Emo Fans and Pop Fans are Taking Over

The people at my school are as arrogant as ever. - IronSabbathPriest

I agree why can't they like metal instead of that crap I mean I have nonthing against the fans but seriously metal deserves better but itll fight back and I live in the south

2 Slipknot and Avenged Sevenfold are Still Playing Live

This is the reason why metal is living

Only bad item on the list what the hell at least they ain't pop or rap

These bands give metal a bad name. - Metal_Treasure

3 Bruce Dickinson Has Tongue Cancer

I hope he gets better, but his voice might be changed forever. I honestly hope not. - IronSabbathPriest

Book of souls prove that bruce can kicks cancer ass

4 Metallica are Doing Nothing

They are a really awesome band, my second favourite in fact. But they haven't played live in months. And they're showing no signs of releasing a new album. At least that's what I've heard - IronSabbathPriest

No, new album is coming out this year! Who knows, they might be working on it right now! - McKing1003

Mcking 1003 I really don't think its comin this year but maybe next year

Well they're getting old so let em live how they want to. I do want another album by them but don't get mad cause they're doing nothing. this is probaly the reason st. anger sucked cause people wanted them to do something

5 You Can't Find Anything by Bands Like Iced Earth in HMV

I actually had to pay £170 to some guy in Sweden for "The Blessed And The Damned" compilation album. It was worth it, but does it have to be that rare? Iced Earth are the most underrated band I've ever come across. - IronSabbathPriest

Iced Earth is a great band and very underrated. - Metal_Treasure

The only albums by them I brought in store
( also the only ones there ) were horror show, dystopia, and plagues of babylon. I ordered the box set dark genesis which contains their first three albums along with the first e.p and cover album. I need to get dark saga, Something Wicked ( all trilogy including the album ) and glorious burden. This is an amazing band.

6 Fans of Commercial (Pop) Metal Prevail
7 People Still Think Heavy Metal is a Bad Influence

I'm a Christian and I love metal. I even listen to black metal and I'm not ashamed to be a Christian.

8 Elitist Metalheads

They just make the whole community look bad.

No they stand for what is true in metal so it wont die

9 People are Still Listening to Terrible Pop and Rap

I said it before but I'll say it again

Terrible? Rap music is not bad. And people listen to rap because it's GOOD! Didja ever think about that? - KoolGuy2218
