    Talking Metal Music, New Thread (PLEASE READ OPENING POST)

    First, no troll posting on how heavy metal sucks or is pop music or whatnot. The only posts I want to see in this thread are about metal and from people who enjoy it, with news on metal, sharing metal tastes, and overall positive metal discussion. No posting on how it sucks and is not music or is related to Pop music please. Thank you.

    To get the thread started, Doom Metal recently has gotten my attention more than other metal genres recently. Ahab, Candlemass, and Mirror of Deception I have been enjoying alot.

    Ahab- Below the Sun

    Mirror Of Deception-Ghost
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ld1yvAtNqFI

    Candlemass-Demon's Gate
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skGw7aYqUwc


    Also to add, Peste Noire, a black metal band from France has recently released a new album. They have taken a much slower pace on this one, but it is a very good album. Has anyone else heard it yet?

    Dear Krummhorn,

    Since heavy metal is actually labelled popular music by every music dictionary, what precisely is fair about willful disregard for the truth? (Apropos acquiescence to the purportedly 'fair' conditions of which you speak.)

    I never said that metal music (and all its derivatives) was not popular music.

    What was said is that we support a "positive" discussion about the thread subject in response to the original thread post. We had enough negativity about it in another thread that eventually was closed due to all the infighting between members.

    No offence intended, but why is it so important to you that metal isn't labelled under the popular music banner? I mean, who cares?

    Because it is not.

    People who wrote those dictionaries can only get into Iron Maiden (and probably something else that is similar) and they think that because the bands that started metal were popular music that all metal is popular music. They have never learned how to appreciate good metal, but hey, they saw that metal has the sub-genre like black metal that is "easy" to make(I mean, 2-3 riffs per song, c'mon) so metal is popular music just because it is easy to make. Deep down they know that they have never got into good death and black metal and that they fail (although they excel at watching TV)

    The thread subject contains a falsehood, which I'll continue to point out (whilst ignoring the troll, of course).

    Jesus Christ, please stop arguing and let's please have this be a normal metal thread. If you don't like metal, please stay out.

    If this continues, I will ask the Administrators to lock this thread yet again.
