Yeah its metal. One idiot is always trying to out "brewtal" the other.

Just because your bass player owns a jazz album that he made you listen to once doesn't mean you're in your own genre.

Only if you're head is 5 feet up your ass does metal all sounds that different, song to song.

i love metal, but i have to agree that some of these labels get ridiculous.


and i don't really mind labels either, just that when they get made up out of the blue it gets confusing and stupid.

Metal for sure...

Battle, black, death(Hey lets go name a genre of music, 'massive attack beat' or 'mingus jazz'... lets be serious, and that is coming from someone who loves Death with a passion)

i'm just waiting for the day that a metal band starts claiming that they're "copper" or "iron", and then someone else starts to say they're "wood" because they like old school music.

wood metal would be awesome, but that would have to be with woodwind instruments ot make it cool

and I think punk has the most ridiculous subgenres, because it's a subgenre with about fifty sub-subgenres

There's a copious amount of subgroups for metal...
Power metal, Nu metal, thrash, etc... all of which I am not particularly fond of. Don't like metal in the least.

metal has around 100 sub-genre's, so definatly metal, although wikipedia has only covered about 50.

@Paloma *goes to write wood metal*
