8 Depressing - Doom Metal

I like saying ominous. - Metalhead1997

9 Aggressive - Extreme Metal

Extreme metal is not really a genre. Its just a part of metal music. People call it umbrella term. But yeah, extreme metal is very aggressive. Death metal, black metal or thrash metal for example. - zxm

10 Groovy - Groove Metal

The Contenders

11 Brutal - Death Metal

Is this brutal death metal or are you describing the whole genre? - Metalhead1997

The riffs. - zxm

12 Overrated - Nu Metal

It's very overrated provided that most probably it's not metal. Usually Nu metal bands are nominated for the metal Grammys and often win. Korn won a Grammy but bands like Death, Opeth, Megadeth, Blind Guardian, etc. never won. - Metal_Treasure

No,it's overhated if anything.-DarkBoi-X

This isn't a subgenre. - Metal_Treasure

It's not metal. It's punk. - Metal_Treasure

I don't like metalcore vocals. But I think metalcore instrumental is good. I don't like the famous metalcore bands. I like some underrated metalcore bands. - zxm
