Top Ten Metal Sub Genres

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Melodic Metalcore

Feed Her to the Sharks is a really good band in this subgenre.

This is the best genre you can think of. Perfect mix of brutality and softness. Listen to KsE. They are best in this genre.

62 Post Industrial
63 Blastcore

Silent vocalist Gordon Freeman narrowly escaped blastcore's pigeonholing, and he won't return to this genre of metal due to the half-life involved in it.

64 Punk Metal

This is a thing? Dammit! I wanted to be a pioneer. - MKBeast

65 Celtic Metal

Hellhammer? Celtic Frost? Latter day Bathory? Help peoples!

66 Electronicore

New fushion in 2000

The Browning. - Metalhead1997

67 Suicidal Depressive Black Metal

This genre is the Best for me. I really think that if the people don't listen to this genre is because they can't understand the real suffering and how much is hard to live continuously in certain disease conditions and marginalization. Listen it carefully and you can love it. - Exasperation

I recommend not to listen to it occasionally, but hey, that is my opinion, I can't stop you.

No mames, puras mamadas para emos caca

68 Djent

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 - ryanrimmel

69 Post-hardcore

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.

70 Reggaeton Metal

People are obviously just starting to pull subgenres out of their ass... Like really?

Bob Marley doing metal? Okay. - Metalhead1997

Bad Brains? Living Color? Dunno.
