Whoa. This thread makes me want to smack my head against my desk. Seriously, what the hell?!
The OP more or less says "pop rock pussies need not apply". Um, seriously. These guys are the epitome of pop rock. Not only that, but in my
obviously subjective opinion, they both suck big time, and all members of each band should be castrated.
Now onto the dude that says that Slipknot's death metal. No they're not. They're nu-metal - A genre made sometime in the '90s that really
established the end of the thrash metal of the '80s, although it's slowly rising again these days.
To the guy that said Slayer is death metal. Nope, they're straight up thrash metal. Also, it's a band for fat people.
Finally, to all that say that metal is dead these days, it's far from it, I reckon. There are really good metal bands all over the world, and
musically they're advancing to levels unseen before. If you don't like death metal because of the grunting get over it. If you look past that you
get some of the heaviest and all out aggressive riffs that you could possibly here. Not only that, but there is really good black metal, post-metal
and other types of metal out their that are enjoyable. I don't enjoy black metal, but I won't deny that they're pretty popular and do well in the
metal industry these days.
