Metal

L’heavy metal (letteralmente “metallo pesante”, spesso abbreviato in metal) è un genere di musica rock. Derivante dall’hard rock, è caratterizzato da ritmi fortemente aggressivi e da un suono potente, ottenuto attraverso l’enfatizzazione dell’amplificazione e della distorsione delle chitarre, dei bassi, e, spesso, persino delle voci. Le tematiche musicali sono spesso definite come oniriche, rabbiose o violente. Ulteriori informazioni…|Modifica Foto dell'artista: In Flames

    Yeah, I feel the same way about the modern kind, for the most part... Metallic hardcore is really good imo, but the newer bands are only good if you grew up with them. At least that's the case with me; nostalgia rules over all else. Nobody actually enjoys KSE without the childhood memories, right??? And trash73, I'm really not trying to differ with you or anything, it's just that all those subgenres are considerably heavier than nu (and thus closer to metal). I suppose you're right about the stigma though. I don't feel strongly about distancing myself from nu, but I just think it's far too soft and random (or varied, in this setting) to be considered metal. Alt-rock is a pretty appropriate catch-all term in my mind, but then again I'm really drunk right now and as I'm writing this I've completely forgotten what I'm talking about. Sorry.

    I don't think anyone is arguing whether Nu Metal is pure Metal, it clearly isn't. It is where you draw the line as to "what is Metal" is where some fans feel there is a stigma against Nu Metal. Particularly, when the borders of Metal are stretched elsewhere to suit some bands (e.g. Lifelover - Post-Punk, Sunn o))) - Drone/Ambient etc.) but the borders are cut off for some Nu Metal bands which are closer to Metal (early Mudvayne, Ektomorf, later Slipknot, Coal Chamber etc.)

    "I just think it's far-fetched to consider bands that draw nearly equal inspiration from hip-hop/electro/funk as rock/metal to belong to the same style that bred doom, death, and speed metal." You could also argue Thrash Metal and Grindcore takes equal inspiration from Hardcore and Crust Punk, Folk Metal takes equal inspiration from Folk music, Gothic Metal takes equal inspiration from Goth Rock etc. Plus, Faith No More are considered Metal (and they fuse Metal with 2 of the genres you mentioned and many others.) http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Faith_No_More/983

    "What type of metalcore are you thinking of? The modern kind, metallic hardcore, or are you just being general? " I'm thinking of both. I'd say that 90s metallic hardcore sounds like a better version of groove metal in general... or something like that. Late 00s metalcore is often a poppy chugging melo-death, bordering sometimes on alternative rock and etc. I don't consider both as "shitty" anymore though.

    vv What type of metalcore are you thinking of? The modern kind, metallic hardcore, or are you just being general? I think I missed your point. Metalcore is either a shitty form of hardcore, or in your opinion, a shitty form of metal? Um...

    I just think it's far-fetched to consider bands that draw nearly equal inspiration from hip-hop/electro/funk as rock/metal to belong to the same style that bred doom, death, and speed metal. Of course, how much they sound like this or that depends on the band, but most bands in the genre ultimately fall closer to alt-rock. Most, not all. I could, for instance, go along with calling Otep metal, but the majority of leading nu bands aren't even close to as heavy as them. I simply don't hear the reason why you'd wanna toss all of those bands under "metal", but maybe I'm alone here.

    "Metalcore isn't a subgenre of metal." Metalcore has much more in common with metal music than hardcore. When I was into hardcore punk, I rejected all metalcore (including non-mainstream 90s one) as shitty metal subgenre (I considered that all metal is crap back then). And then again, yes, a lot of modern metal is as far away from metal as nu metal. Moreover, heavy metal has already started to erode back in the 80s, since thrash metal had became leading underground subgenre, and thrash metal was a merger of a more aggressive side of heavy metal or speed metal and hardcore punk. First wave black metal was even more punkish.

    it wasn't my intention to start an argument around that. It was my intention to bring up the fact that that Metal isn't clearly defined. Both Heavy Metal and Nu Metal stem from Rock but are "heavier." You could find a general rule to define Metal but there would always be exceptions. In philosophy, generally, when there is no line of definition it is understood that the subject has no meaning. Blackgaze, Ambient Black Metal, Drone Doom & Funeral Doom etc. are just as far away from Metal as a lot of Nu Metal. A lot of Nu Metal isn't too far away from Soulfly & Devildriver which is considered Metal.
