Default Why metal will never again be the dominant genre

I was just looking around and realized that there are a whole ****load of metal fans. There seem to be more than the "dominant" genre of pop/hih-hop. Its just to bad that we can't all agree to call it Heavy Metal or agree on one sub-genre. The thing that made me think of this was reading the thread that mentioned traditional doom metal and someone came back and said something about funeral doom. So not only do we have the sub-genre of doom metal, there are sub-sub-genres of traditional and funeral doom. Oh well, I still wouldn't watch MTV anywho, I just get confused about what I'm listening to. Its all metal to me.

I have no clue what thread you could be talking about.

Though honestly the branches make sense. While I agree that Black Sabbath and Gordian Knot are both metal I couldn't agree with calling them the same thing. Also, while I could acknowledge that Anal **** and Genghis Tron are both grind, they're just too different to be the same thing. I think the sub-sub-genres are showing just how far music is expanding.

So how does one determine exactly what genre thay are hearing without asking? I agree with the sub-genres making sense, but the sub-sub-sub.....genres get confusing. Sometimes I think it gets more complicated than it really needs to be.

I typically find that asking + research is not a bad idea. If something is new to your ear you might as well ask or search the net to figure out exactly what it is. Though since you asked without asking, I guess just search and you will find.

I have used Wikipedia to find the answers before but Amon Amarth and Arch Enemy are both listed as being melodic death metal. I think they sound very different. Amon Amarth is sub listed as Viking metal which is a sub genre of death but Arch Enemy is sub listed as Thrash which death takes its roots from. So is this determined by figuring the Genre of Metal, Sub of Death, Sub Sub of Melodic and Influance of Viking and Thrash?

Maybe this will help, but all the subs are not listed.

I never have understood this sub-genre metal stuff... If it's hard and you dig it, isn't that all that matters. Metal is metal and we are all brothers and sisters because of it! Right?! Metal Rules! All the other genres know it and that is why they run in fear! MUAHAHAHA!
