Top Ten Metal Sub Genres
The Contenders: Page 3
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
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)
I can't believe nu metal is even on the list - admonlee
no its not gay! Def Leppard should have been included in the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. - russian
My opinion on glam has softened a BIT now. Check out Steel Panther, I can't stress that enough. - IronSabbathPriestV 5 Comments
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.
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 from Meshuggah, incorporates more progressive elements like Tool and the like, throw in a bit of clean and dirty vocals from metalcore, and go ahead and kill yourself over how diverse metal has become. Bring back Black Sabbath just for sanity's sake.
A sub genre of prog metal, but due to its rise in popularity I now almost consider it a stand alone genre, and it has its own unique characteristics.
Bands like Meshuggah, Animals as Leaders, and some Periphery are good. But djent is not a genre, it is a playing style - ryanrimmelV 3 Comments
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
When most people think of rap metal, they think of Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park. Well those bands are horrible (LK was good back in the day, but they suck now). Listen to bands like RATM, and you'll grow to love rap metal.
This list is false. Thrash metal is not good at all. Rap metal should be in the top tens. People who listen to rap and metal music at the same time should listen to this type of metal subgenre.
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.
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 wouldn't call tribal metal a genre mainly because genres are based on sound, not lyrical content. Roots, as mentioned by the other guy is more of a groove/nu metal album.
Sepultura (Roots-era). Soulfly. Most of metal is tribal so far as community goes. I don't know if it's a genre though. Help!
Unless you're referring to "Roots Bloody Roots" by Sepultura, I have to reconsider this. - Metalhead1997
Grunge always be the best genre
Not a real subgenre. - Metalhead1997

New fushion in 2000
