There are so many sub genres of heavy metal and a lot of the time it's misunderstood by media, general populace and yes even metal fans.

One of the originals to kick this thread off and yes it's still good.

The final 30 seconds or so of this song has, I think, the greatest guitar solo of all time.

The first heavy metal show I went.... I was 14, was Angra, a melodic power metal band from Brazil, very famous.
Ok, they are melodic, but I think this song is very good composed, energetic and I like the message too.

Power metal in general is not my thing, but I like a few bands Angra, Stratovarius, Dream Evil (:lol:), Wintersun & old Children of Bodom if you are willing to count this kind of PM with harsh vocals. Some more also but not the majority

For me the my first heavier show I went to was a metalcore show, I think Killswitch Engage when I was 13

Whatever's on wikipedia doesn't matter, metal subgenres are decided by the metal community. They are on metal archives anyways, but there's barely any metal to their sound. They are primarily a grunge band. They definitely don't transition into anything like the modern era of metal, they have influences from the classics though like Sabbath.

Yup, and its not like alternative metal is a valid subgenre anyways, one of those made up things like NWOAHM a few years ago for all the metalcore bands, or grouping a whole bunch of disparate bands as "nu metal"

@AJ: For sure but for me, I've been listening to metal now for 7 years, at a really high volume, I was really into the classics when I was first introduced to the genre, and for sure they put out some amazing music, but I'm personally more of a fan of the subgenres that have grown from that stuff. I'm a fan of quite progressive, experimental stuff, unfortunately there are not too many bands that deliver that kind of thing at a really high level. I also enjoy listening to the more standard fare whether for the technicality or the fun factor but my love is for artistry and experimentation.

Something in the style of most Japanese bands has prevented me from liking them. X Japan's :o instrumentals are great enough that I can ignore the dudes joke of a voice though.

Korpiklaani and Finntroll are among the best when it comes to folk elements. Finntroll have a harder edge, though I remember seeing this doco on Black Metal and they were quite funny. I mean what is more trollish than singing in Swedish and living in Finland. The finlandsvenskar (Finnish-Swedes), the ones that have Swedish as a first language aren't always appreciated in Finland.

Well, AJ's thread title says "heavy metal", but under that guise, we wouldn't be able to post anything post-1988 :lol:

It's interesting to see how this genre has spun out from Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, and Deep Purple to Iron Maiden and the 80's hair bands, to the genre splicing in the 90's to what we have today.

Definitely give it a listen, there is no standout here like Holy Wars or Tornado of Souls but it's a very solid album start to finish, and Chris Broderick brings some great lead playing to the table.

Very few people use the term heavy metal to refer to those old bands anymore though anyhow, the term applies to the throwback bands these days but also to the genre as a whole. It's definitely interesting how the genre become much more extreme and much more expansive, with the rise of thrash and the first roots of death and black metal in the 80s, the explosion of melodeath in the 90s, the rise of all the hardcore influenced bands and the explosion of progressive and avante garde stuff in the 00s.

Gojira are cool. Seeing them in France at Hellfest was one of highlights of my summer.

I guess some people will object to calling AIC a metal band but it's fine for me. They're a heavy guitar band heavily influenced by bands unquestioningly in the metal category and have heavily influenced bands that are undoubtedly metal. Also some of their songs are pure sludge which is blatantly a branch of metal.

I see grunge as more of a movement than a musical style as such. Nirvana were more influenced by punk and indie, AIC have the blues and metal influence while Soundgarden basically grew into their own sound from being a Zeppelin/Sabbath hybrid.

I don't really care for arguing over what constitutes what. If it's heavy and it has guitars it's fine to call it metal in my book.

GhostUnholy
12-16-2009, 08:15 PM
But that means any hard rock band could be seen as a metal band. Like AIC obviously belong better alongside Soundgarden and Pearl Jam than alongside Opeth or Gorguts or Dark angel or Drudkh or Mayhem, etc etc. I think it becomes a bit unclear because "AIC" has many similarities to the "nu metal" bands (since they were heavily rooted in grunge) that followed, but like 99% of metalheads don't accept any of the "nu metal" bands as metal.

I guess people who are more old schoolers may accept AIC as a metal band, those who are part of the modern metal movement probably wouldn't.

Henry Chinaski
12-16-2009, 09:00 PM
I get your point man but I think the difference is that a lot of metal fans identify "metal" as being an inherently positive term whereas for me it's merely neutral and descriptive. There's a lot of shit metal out there. Whereas I'd consider the vast majority of music that got labelled nu-metal as absolute horseshit I'd still describe it as metal.

I see how my earlier definition could be too broad for some but I don't think it makes sense to say that because one band doesn't sit along something that's definitely metal that it means they're not metal. I mean grindcore bands like Pig Destroyer and Nasum don't exactly sound a lot like Sabbath. Same for a lot of death/black metal but no one's going to say Sabbath aren't metal.

AIC have that undefinable sludgey heaviness that marks them as a metal band for me. Jerry Cantrell says they're a metal band anyway.

basically, my definition is broad and lazy cos I don't really care how people use labels. If a bunch of metal heads tell me that ETID and Converge are lame hardcore shit I'm not gonna lose any sleep.

Its not really an issue of the quality of the bands, its just that they don't fit in the genre. Like the nu metal bands, what about korn, or the deftones, or linkin park, or mudvayne, or crazytown was metal? There was distortion sure, but thats about as far as it goes. Bands like Slipknot have some metal influences but the whole detuned distorted riff thing is also an element of grunge, and most of these bands riff structures come more from grunge than from old school metal. Then you get the rock, hip hop and electronic influences that many of those bands brought in, and the metal influence i really on the backburner. I mean, the only thing metal that any of those bands had was the odd metal riff and the odd burst of double kick. AIC on the other hand for sure has a lot of sludgy parts and similarities can definitely be drawn to the old classic metal bands. For me, if AIC are a metal band, then where do you draw the line for hard rock? Their style of riffing is very much in line with the hard rock of the last 2 decades, Stanley's vocals were definitely grunge, the drum lines are thoroughly based in rock patterns, so the only metal element really is the sludgy feel. Another thing, members of bands say a lot of things. Trivium said that The Crusade would be "ridiculously technical thrash metal", while it was basically neither. Anyhow, AIC are on metal archives which means enough people see them as metal that it makes no difference.

ETID and Converge are definitely metalcore but to me at least are two of the highlights of that genre.

Wow that was kind of a waste of time writing all that out :o

Their style of riffing is very much in line with the hard rock of the last 2 decades, Stanley's vocals were definitely grunge, the drum lines are thoroughly based in rock patterns, so the only metal element really is the sludgy feel. Another thing, members of bands say a lot of things. Trivium said that The Crusade would be "ridiculously technical thrash metal", while it was basically neither. Anyhow, AIC are on metal archives which means enough people see them as metal that it makes no difference.

ETID and Converge are definitely metalcore but to me at least are two of the highlights of that genre.

Wow that was kind of a waste of time writing all that out :o

hehe, I respect your opinion dude but I just don't care enough to discuss it any further so we'll leave it at that.

I'll have better contributions in the future and can post now because we're at the start of a 3rd page but like I said, all the youtube embeds fuck up my shitty lap top.

Anyway, here's a few faves:

Dio - Holy Diver:

Skinless - A Unilateral Disgust

My favourite death metal band. Not the biggest fan of death in general but these guys have some slow grooves and a sense of humour (no idea why this vid is 8 minutes, the song is 4 minutes long):

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/Ddz72ybum6s&hl=en_GB&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/Ddz72ybum6s&hl=en_GB&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

Duck Duck Goose - Boy Oh Boy, I Ain't No Wiz Kid

My favourite of the new wave of crazy metalcore bands. Reminiscent of very aarly ETID, Converge and other heavyweights of the genre. Really intense. The guitar sound of the riff that kicks in around 1:34 is nuts:

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/Kpg9eT_yaeM&hl=en_GB&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/Kpg9eT_yaeM&hl=en_GB&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

Been getting into these guys lately

Singer is Nate Newton, the bass player from Converge. He sounds exactly like Lou Koller from Sick of it All. They're not like Converge at all. Much slower with a southern, old school Thin Lizzy kind of vibe in places. LOVE the main riff in this song. Like the good old fashioned straight up hardcore "inspirational" lyrics too

Only got WPB a couple of weeks ago. Just sounds like more of the same really but I haven't given it enough og a chance to really judge.

Christ Illusion was pretty weak. Find it amusing they won 2 grammys for it.

God Hates Us All is absolutely awesome though. One of the most underrented metal albums of all time. Though that's 9 years old now so doesn't exactly
count as their "latest stuff".

GHUA is a great album, the last good one Slayer made :sad:

the ones that surprised me were Megadeth, their last album is something back to their 80's thrash roots, it might be because Chris Broderick suits Mustaine much better than Al Pitrelli, I haven't heard so many solos in a Megadeth album since “Rust in Peace” :yeah:

Never liked Megadeth tbh. The people that kind of influenced my tatstes when I was an impressionable kid didn't listen to them so they just knda passed me by.The fact that Mustaine is possibly the biggest **** on the planet doesn't help.

In fact apart from Slayer early Metallica and Sepultura I'm not much into thrash at all. Testament, Exodus and Annihilator all have their moments but I wouldn't really consider myself much of a fan of any of them.

Rock on, MTF :rocker: :rocker2: :rocker:

An ultimate CLASSIC. I well remember when that CD (LP?) was released, it was banned on Dutch radio because of so-called suggested Nazi-sympathies, because of "Angel of Death". Pardon me, there? That song merely describes Dr. Mengele's actions (:help:), it doesn't give any a judgement.
Well I guess that that was what bothered those censors most of all.
Learn to *read* them bloddy READ songtexts, I'd say. Huh. :scratch:

I just love this song :D
But it's kinda Progressive Metal :unsure: Weird video though.

Angel of Death is about Mengele, nor Raining Blood but apart from that I agree. That song evokes the brutality of Mengele and the holocaust as much as any poem/documentary. Nazi sympathisers generally play things like that down rather than describe them in detail. Slayer obviously like the controversy though. They do indulge in a lot of nazi imagery in their art work and stuff.

Yep. Apparently judging from what I've read, Kerry King is indeed a collectioner of Nazi-paraphernalia, but that doesn't mean he actually condones that sort of nastiness.

What did yuo listen to?? There are a lot of sub-genres and I agree there are some really boring bands. But Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Deep Purple, Megadeth, etc. aren't annoying by any means.

I wonder if people who never experienced 80s hard rock/metal or are unfamiliar with the rock giants of the 70s (zeppelin, floyd) realize just how bad the current offerings are. If John Milton were a headbanger and alive today, he would be mourning a paradise lost. As a guitarist, the death of the expertly done and obligatory guitar solo is a source of constant sadness for me. Nostalgia from my childhood can be a mudda fudda.

A lead and rhythm guitarist made for some wicked soundscapes. First rate vocalists, first rate musicians.

Check out Judas Priest's "diabolical" treatment of messianic archetypes:

PAINKILLER !

Silly and fun lyrics, amazing music. (check out the loco :cuckoo: solo at 2:10 - it doesn't end!!)

Rock on MTF, rock on... :rocker::rocker::rocker::rocker::rocker:

Faster than a bullet
Terrifying scream
Enraged and full of anger
He's half man and half machine
Rides the metal monster
Breathing smoke and fire
Closing in with vengeance soaring high
He is the Painkiller
This is the Painkiller
Planets devastated
Mankind's on it's knees
A saviour comes from out the skies
In answer to their pleas
Through boiling clouds of thunder
Blasting bolts of steel
Evils going under deadly wheels
He is the Painkiller
This is the Painkiller
Faster than a lazer bullet
Louder than an atom bomb
Chromium plated boiling metal
Brighter than a thousand suns
Flying high on rapture
Stronger free and brave
Nevermore encaptured
They've been brought back from the grave
With mankind ressurrected
Forever to survive
Returns from Armageddon to the skies
He is the Painkiller
This is the Painkiller
Wings of steel Painkiller
Deadly wheels Painkiller

Ronnie James Dio was a great replacement for Ozzy and became a metal god when he went solo. "Die Young" eerily became a prophetic song about a life cut short with cancer. I'm sure he's head bangin' away in heaven.

"Heaven and hell" and "Sign of the Southern Cross" are also some of my favs from the "Live Evil" album.

That is a great song indeed, Coverdale and John Sykes were a perfect match. It´s just a shame that Whitesnake went through that "hair band-phase", especially Slip of the Tongue was a huge mistake. Of course they got a lot of fans, but their credibility suffered quite a bit, at least in retrospect.

Hey Dougie boy, how do feel about Steve Vai's playing on "Slip of the Tongue?" Some amazing solos there, on the cover song, and kool riffs on "Kitten's got claws." I luv the zeppelinesque sound on "Judgement Day." It's kinda like Kashmir.

First rate lyrics!

Judgement Day

The night is gone,
The time has come
To find a new day has begun,
An' it promises to stay
To soothe the pain of wasted years
An' kiss away the bitter tears
A love to light the way

And from the darkness
Comes a smile,

That reaches out for many miles,
Touching everyone.
No more shadows of the past,
Your spirit free to fly at last,
Shining in the sun

Like the rolling thunder,
I feel the power of love,
It's a gift from heaven
And the Lord above

We walk toward desire,
Hand and hand
Through fields of fire
With only love to light the way
On the road to Judgement Day

Take it easy, take it slow,
I'll take you anywhere you wanna go,
Places never seen before
'Cause I love you, an' I need you,
I'll do my best to please you,
My love can open any door

When you hear the thunder
In your darkest night,
I'll be there to hold you
When the lightning strikes

So don't you worry,
You can ease your mind
'Cause we'll be dancing
At the end of time

Who loves you, who needs you,
Who'll do his best to please you,
I love you, I need you
I'll get down on my knees

We walk toward desire,
Hand and hand
Through fields of fire
With only love to light the way
On the road to Judgement Day

So don't you worry, baby
On the road to Judgement Day
Who loves you, who needs you
On the road to Judgement Day

So I love you, and I need you
My love can open any door
My love can open any door...

It was great being a kid in the 80s with all the cool bands. I'm no expert on metal but I'm familiar with pretty much all the non death/thrash metal stuff. That shit was/is scary. For me and my friends it was all about the fun music, and no anger at all. Some of those guys were real freaks back then. It's all damn noise to me but I don't want to disrespect my fellow metal brohims.

Yeah, I had this record, maybe my fav thing they did in the 80's, British Steel's up there too, 80's Priest kinda bores me, especially the drumming, ever since Holland joined the band, their 70's drummers were better esp. Phillips, best drummer they ever had, also not really into Halford's gay lyrical themes, I don't care that he's gay, he sings great, just don't like the lyrics sometimes, still kinda funny that people thought he was doing the biker thing and was really metal when he was doing the gay club thing instead.

Vai´s playing is of course excellent, such a skillful player. I just feel it wasn´t the right direction for Whitesnake as a band, that´s when the whole hair-metal posing went a little over the top for them. 1987 with John Sykes is still a good album, but Slip of the Tongue is not really my cup of tea. There´s some great songwriting, Judgement Day for example, and Sailing Ships, which is one of the best ballads they ever did. And I I do like the Fool for Your Loving-remake. But it would have been nice to hear those songs with a little bluesier approach and with Adrian Vandenberg´s guitar playing. And the photos with a little less hair spray. I suppose Coverdale just wanted to make the band as big as possible but IMO it is not a strong effort.

You're right, sadly a lot of bands seemed to be running out of steam at that time. In the late 80s and early 90s, you could actually sense a change in the musical zeitgeist coming around the corner with bands like nirvana--literally meant the death of the popular metal scene. Now I know how the hippies in the 60s must have felt. It was kinda depressing. A lot of muscians lost their way in the 80s.

Don't forget the opening/repeating guitar riff, if that's not Priestly I don't know what is, it's like this track takes Priest a step further, you think it's gonna be like a Priest rip off, but Razor do their own thing with it, making it more thrashy and with a rougher vocal which I like, the chorus maybe does have a more "evil" sounding vibe to it, but not really, I think it sounds cool what they did there, so yeah, this is probably my favorite Canadian metal song ever.

It does sound very priestly indeed. For some reason I thought of the tone of "Hell Bent for Leather."

By the time "Juglolator" came out with Ripper Owens, I lost interest in the priest. Too bad JP hasn't aged well like Iron Maiden. Halford is 10% of the singer he was in his youth. Sad when you don't know when to call it quits.

Well over the years I've been into it off and on, now I'm probably more into it, I've been digging more into it, finding more things I like, some records a few years back I either wasn't as into or I thought were too heavy, I'm now finding that I like them now, like you though I won't go too rough on the vocals usually, like the Kingdom of Sorrow is maybe as heavy as I go on vocals, I think that Machine Head's The Blackening for me is maybe the best overall metal record ever, also really like Pantera's Cowboys from Hell, but not them as much after that, other stuff I like is Maiden, Motorhead, 80's thrash I've tried really hard to get into, most of it I'm not really, I like Megadeth's Rust in Peace (even though it's technically 90'), but I don't like the new remaster of it that Mustaine messed with, I have most Soilwork records, as you can tell I quite enjoy a good groove, I could go on, but I will say more here in the future.

It does sound very priestly indeed. For some reason I thought of the tone of "Hell Bent for Leather."

By the time "Juglolator" came out with Ripper Owens, I lost interest in the priest. Too bad JP hasn't aged well like Iron Maiden. Halford is 10% of the singer he was in his youth. Sad when you don't know when to call it quits.

The production or guitar tone is at least like Priest, I'm not a guitar player though, so I wouldn't know for sure if that riff is like Priest.

Sounds like you are maybe at least 10 years older than me if you were going to Priest concerts in the 80's, I wasn't old enough to go to shows then, right now there isn't much in the way of metal shows on the horizon, I'm so hungary to go to one again, it's been awhile, Motley Crue and Kiss are coming through on different tours, not really my style, but if nothing else pops up soon I may have to consider, probably not going to shell out a minimum of 66 bucks to see Kiss though, they are one of the biggest money making acts in the world, only reason why I can think they charge so much is cause that maybe all they care about at least now is making money, Crue start at $25 then 45 then 79 then 115, that shows in 15 days though, so it's maybe not enough time now.

I can't believe my parents were letting me skip school at 11 years old to go see metal bands back then with friends. My teacher let us do show and tell on Monday mornings to talk about the concerts. The other kids thought we were true metal gods :lol: I'd save up from my paper route and blow it all on tickets and concert shirts! I had so many. What do they call those T-shirts with the long sleaves? Levi's Jeans, concert shirts, white sneakers, and a studded armband for the finishing touch.

Too bad there weren't that many female metal performers in the 80s. And so Lee Aaron was a VERY welcome presence on the scene for many a pre-pubescent boy if you catch my meaning. The few that were brave enough to perform, usually had to adopt the "bondage" theme in one way or another.

Interesting/decent picks, not very familiar with the 1st 2 bands, Rotting Christ I sometimes will listen to, their music is fine, it's the vocals I have a hard time getting past, right now in a similar vein I'm really into the new Amorphis record which comes out this month, it's a concept piece:

Easily one of the best albums from the 80's, one of my fav's for sure, 1st truly great concept record, I put just 1 track here, but this really must be heard all the way through, best piece Priest never did in the 80's.

You were talking about female singing metal, this is probably my favorite ever, little known, they did 2 records, no longer together sadly, should have been much bigger IMO, from Sweden/Finland:

Just found out about this, it's Jamey Jasta singer from Hatebreed and Kirk Windstein guitar, vocals from Crowbar and Down, I'm a bit into Crowbar and Down, but they don't quite do it for me, this I'm really digging, it's more accessable, maybe the best stuff Kirk has done ever, killer grooves.

Well yeah, "The Wall" and well at least a couple more records Floyd did are considered great concepts, but I'm just not as into them as I am the Ryche', I'd put Mindcrime with The Wall or Darkside anyday, I like MC's concept more, even though they are all dark concepts, except for maybe Darkside, the music on Mindcrime doesen't get me down like it does on The Wall after awhile.

You're right, the wall can get you down. It's quite hypnotic.

The song "suite sister mary" blows me away on Operation Mindcrime. For a long while it was my favourite song ever. I'm a big fan of vocalists doing changes in a song. Geoff makes it sound like there's multiple singers (4:51 - "Mary my lady of pain, always alone...") Wow, just wow. :rocker::smoke::rocker2:

I suppose Mindcrime doesn't get me down cause it's got riffs and well Tate, what a singer, maybe better than Halford in the 80's, he's considered a 2nd rate Halford I hear.

Whatever's on wikipedia doesn't matter, metal subgenres are decided by the metal community. They are on metal archives anyways, but there's barely any metal to their sound. They are primarily a grunge band. They definitely don't transition into anything like the modern era of metal, they have influences from the classics though like Sabbath.

Look, just cause you only listen to black/death metal does not mean that AIC aren't metal, who gives a fuck about sub genres, if you hear it and it has the spirit of metal, then it's metal, AIC are clearly rooted in classic metal, if you don't think their records have a metal vibe, then I don't know what to say, grunge is just the 90's word for what Sabbath, Motorhead and Zeppelin sounded like then, it's just a marketing ploy, not a genre, they broke quite a bit of new ground for metal, you say that black metal is far more interesting, well I could say to you that it's the least interesting metal genre, most BM is probably worse than punk when it comes to musicianship, in that sense it's anti metal, cause true metal is about really good music, not just putting on some atmosphere and spectacle to talk about Satan, plus it's all about the same subject pretty much, I see BM more as performance art, a message and what the pagan religion does than music, cause really, if the Christian religion had not taken over Norway, would there even be BM, I think not.

Alright, at least my favorite metal record ever, maybe favorite record ever, that's saying something, cause I've heard so much music/metal, you have no idea, songwriting is the best I've ever heard, track 7 is a bit of a dud for me, and the closer is either average or a bit above average, but the rest is pretty top notch, for me it takes all the best or my favorite parts of metal from it's history and puts them here, Metal Hammer UK called it at least one of the 6 best records from the 00's:

7vhzg2VqBy8

J99
04-10-2013, 09:21 AM
But that means any hard rock band could be seen as a metal band. Like AIC obviously belong better alongside Soundgarden and Pearl Jam than alongside Opeth or Gorguts or Dark angel or Drudkh or Mayhem, etc etc. I think it becomes a bit unclear because "AIC" has many similarities to the "nu metal" bands (since they were heavily rooted in grunge) that followed, but like 99% of metalheads don't accept any of the "nu metal" bands as metal.

I guess people who are more old schoolers may accept AIC as a metal band, those who are part of the modern metal movement probably wouldn't.

AIC are pretty different from Pearl Jam which might have the odd metal element, but are def. more hard rock, but you gotta remember that what people call 70's hard rock now, was considered metal then, like Aerosmith for instance, and even Soundgarden, they are a pretty hard band to describe as mostly one thing or another, they cover alot of styles, like punk, metal, hard rock, so in that sense they are the Zeppelin from there, all the bands from that area at that time are quite different from each other, that's just silly to compare what AIC does to extreme metal acts, cause there is clearly a big difference between classic metal and death metal, but it's still all metal, AIC doesn't have so many similarities to "nu", "grunge" is only one part of "Nu", the blueprint for "Nu" is Sepultura's "Roots", there are a few decent so called "Nu" metal bands, but they don't only do that style, they aren't really that "Nu" to me, once again "Nu" is just what the record companies were selling metal as at the time, still just metal though, bands like System of a Down, Mudvayne, Godsmack, Disturbed, Korn. AIC's 1st record can be described as more hard rock, still alot of Guns N' Roses influence there, a fair bit of metal too, 2nd record is so metal though, look, alot of bands band have so many influences on them, but if the base is metal, then it's metal, so you can't say that cause metal evolved/changed to death metal that it makes it more metal or more valid than how AIC changed it, Dirt is a pretty doomy/sludgy metal record, it's quite similar to what Paradise Lost were doing at the same time.

The Ocean Collective - Dark but clean sound, with above decent production.

Its not really an issue of the quality of the bands, its just that they don't fit in the genre. Like the nu metal bands, what about korn, or the deftones, or linkin park, or mudvayne, or crazytown was metal? There was distortion sure, but thats about as far as it goes. Bands like Slipknot have some metal influences but the whole detuned distorted riff thing is also an element of grunge, and most of these bands riff structures come more from grunge than from old school metal. Then you get the rock, hip hop and electronic influences that many of those bands brought in, and the metal influence i really on the backburner. I mean, the only thing metal that any of those bands had was the odd metal riff and the odd burst of double kick. AIC on the other hand for sure has a lot of sludgy parts and similarities can definitely be drawn to the old classic metal bands. For me, if AIC are a metal band, then where do you draw the line for hard rock? Their style of riffing is very much in line with the hard rock of the last 2 decades, Stanley's vocals were definitely grunge, the drum lines are thoroughly based in rock patterns, so the only metal element really is the sludgy feel. Another thing, members of bands say a lot of things. Trivium said that The Crusade would be "ridiculously technical thrash metal", while it was basically neither. Anyhow, AIC are on metal archives which means enough people see them as metal that it makes no difference.

ETID and Converge are definitely metalcore but to me at least are two of the highlights of that genre.

Wow that was kind of a waste of time writing all that out :o

Korn are pretty metal, it's that some people don't like the hip hop element there, but they've made it metal, Deftones I would agree are not as pure of a metal band like AIC, cause they have the vocalist who's really into the art/experimental rock, and the guitarist is a metal guy, so they have like two opposing styles, they def have some metal songs though, Linkin, well they aren't really metal at all, it's like they took the lightest parts of Filter, Korn, Deftones and made it pop, Mudvayne are fairly metal, no question, I don't know how you can listen to them and think that they are not, at least their 1st 3 records are, after that they did some more radio friendly stuff, Crazytown are prob more rock than metal.

The detuned guitar has been around at least since the Beatles did "Dear Prudence", Zeppelin used it a bit, as far as the influence on metal, it comes from Slayer when they started to use it, doom bands used it, then Death used it, hair metal bands used it too, Motley Crue doing it alot, not AIC, Swedish death metal, Tool, Pantera, Prong, Helmet and I'm pretty sure some other bands were also using it at this time too, so it's a Slayer thing, not a Washington State thing, now a lot of metal bands have used it since.

What is a grunge riff structure, cause AIC's riffs are pretty classic metal type riffs.

Staley was Staley, he wasn't a genre, he was unique, like Ozzy before him.

Classic metal drumming was based on rock/jazz, until Motorhead came along and changed metal drumming, doomy metal doesn't use fast kick drumming anyway.

Animals is probably my favorite Floyd, rocks hardest, lesser known, but those who've heard it know how good it is.

I think he's a bit overrated as a guitarist, I get that he plays with good feeling, he could be your favorite, he was mine for awhile, but to say he's the best ever is a stretch, like Blackmore was better at the time for what one could do on the guitar, could maybe even put Gilmour with Townshend, Page, Iommi, Beck, Clapton, Fripp, May too, Hendrix before them all, my personal favorite is maybe Dimebag right now, could also put him in the conversation for best ever.
