Top Ten Things the Metal Scene NeedsFretto Let's be honest. We all like Metal but almost every scene needs improvements.
The Top Ten
How many Darkthrone clones do you know? - Fretto
I am sick and tired of bands that are barely metal or not metal at all but call themselves metal. - Metal_Treasure
Nine Treasures & Tengger Cavalry are a great example of combining Throat Singing with metal. - Fretto
Most of the wiki articles on metal music contain ridiculous statements. For example, "Amon Amarth are one of the first viking metal bands". Wrong! Amon Amarth lyrics are about vikings but they play melodic death metal and they aren't a viking metal band. Things like that. - Metal_Treasure
I totally agree with that but there's something I call "the uniqueness paradox" - the most unique bands never get popular and appreciated. Even now there are many unique bands but they are all underrated. - Metal_Treasure
Most of this new bands are just copycats. - Fretto
Sometimes, unique isn't ALWAYS good, and I'm mainly talking about Slaughterbox when I say this. - Metalhead1997
Everybody loves funny stuff but this would be a hard task for metal bands, especially the fun part - not because metal musicians aren't able to create funny stuff (they are able). It's because long ago metal consciously embraced the dark side of music and lyrics, and this is one of the differences between metal and hard rock (ACDC, KISS). Basically, there's no fun in metal. Folk metal and parody metal are exceptions. Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, or Death would never perform a song like Talk Dirty to Me by Poison. - Metal_Treasure
Immortal were the KISS of Metal
& Infant Annihilator never take themselves seriously. - Fretto
More fans = More $ for the Underground - Fretto
It sounds annoying and in Live videos you see how much talent the singer really has. - Fretto
Which metal bands have even used autotune?
Autotune isn't typical for metal at all. - Metal_Treasure
