Top Ten Metal Sub Genres
The Contenders: Page 3
You guys don't know what viking metal is - it's a subgenre of black metal with influences from Nordic folk music. But it's not folk metal because folk metal is a subgenre of power metal.
Many bands from different metal subgenres use viking lyrical themes but it doesn't mean they are viking metal.
Amon Amarth sing about vikings but their music is melodic death metal and not viking metal/black metal. - Metal_Treasure
Viking metal was created by Bathory and it is a sub genre of black metal
Oh for gods sake, this probably doesn't deserve a place in the top five, but 35th place is just ridiculous.
They should make an Elder Scrolls metal subgenre.V 3 Comments
Toxic Holocaust, Bio-Cancer, Municipal Waste, the list goes on. - Metalhead1997
KILL THE WORDS!
DRI, Stormtroopers of Death, Iron Reagan, Agnostic Front, and Crumbsuckers are great bands! - ryanrimmel
You like brutal death metal? You like tech death? Excellent, because this very genre combines both BDM and tech death and makes it even better. Check out bands like Flesh Consumed and Nile.
Epic riffs and drumming combined with brutality
Cryptopsy and Nile are my favorite bands from this subgenre. - Metal_Treasure
Like Katalepsy or Katatonia? - Metalhead1997
What? List some bands, please. - Metalhead1997
Isn't is same as glam metal. - zxm
This doesn't exist. - Metalhead1997
This is just a loose way of describing Cattle Decapitation. - Metalhead1997
What, the, hell, is, this?
I would actually recommend giving this a listen, it the most stupidly hilarious thing you will ever hear! Just read the name, VEGE-Tarian.
Color the world, Blackened?
Sodom, Venom, Skeletonwitch, Deströyer 666, Goatwhore, Toxic Holocaust - ryanrimmel
This is real. I'm not making this up. Like, one time I was listening to a Nintendocore song that at first had video game sound effects, but then it had screaming and playing the guitar loud like a screamo band. It's just so surreal.
What the hell is Nintendocore? Laugh out loud.
When I said surreal I meant it in a good way. Not a bad way.
This is not a thing these people do not know what they are talking aboutV 2 Comments
Lycus, Funeral Tears, Ahab, etc. - Metalhead1997
If you like dark depresive and atmospheric stuff this is for you. Bands that I recomend:(EVOKEN is my favorite of all time), funeral, thergothon.
It's a genre of metal that takes the piss out of all the metal genres. It is the greatest metal genre of all time, though you'll need a torch or a candle to find one of it's exponents. It is deeply underground.
What is this genre
I just love me some wigger slam metal the most important sub genre in metal by far
Never heard of this.
Funniest vocals in all of metal. BREE BREE BREE BREE.
No such thing. And don't throw Alestorm at me. - IronSabbathPriest
Pirate shanties meshed with heavy metal? Hell yeah! - MKBeast
Abominable Putridity, Kraanium, Katalepsy, Devourment, Ingested - ryanrimmel
There are some good bands in this. Cerebral Incubation, Epicardiectomy, Gastrorrexis, Guttural Slug, Kyojin Daigyakusatsu, Crepitation, etc.
Black Groove Metal is amazing! Listen to the band Khold. Right. NOW. - ThatoneMetalhead
Definitely. As Bill Hicks said: in the future, all shopping malls shall be linked. Jello Biafra also took a swipe at this mindless commerciality in one of his side-projects.
Don't put that in punk either. It's a disgrace and we don't want it.
Actually, post-hardcore is a subgenre of punk not metal.
I actually don't mind it. It's not the archaic Hardcore of Black Flag etc. but more post-Hatebreed, Biohazard etc. The term Hardcore doesn't mean straight-edge Punk bands anymore. It's a metal movement.V 1 Comment
Mix of black metal and shoe-gaze. it's atmospheric sub-genre if you seek bands like Alcest, Les discrets, and lantlos.V 1 Comment
I can't believe nu metal is even on the list - admonlee
I LOVE GLAM METAL! There's so many great bands like Motley Crue, definitely Leppard, Scorpions, Dokken, Poison, Warrant, Europe, and many other bands! My top 5 is 5: Power Metal (Dream Theater) 4: Groove Metal (Pantera) 3: Heavy Metal (Black Label Society) 2: Glam Metal (Motley Crue) 1: Thrash Metal (Megadeth)
no its not gay! Def Leppard should have been included in the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. - russian
Glam Metal is overhated, really. IT's melodic- usually the vocals are good, good riffs, happy lyrics, and it attracted metalheads who would explore more like prog and thrash - SoldierOfFortuneV 6 Comments
