This is very enlightening.
I didn't even know there are so many genres.
Yes I'm musically ignorant a bit.

Sweet, this thread's awesome. They kinda got a genre tag for every little shift in progression, pace, breakdown lyrical content though, and people who huddle around drunk blabbering about the difference for three hours go too far with the topic... Real cool to read the history though. Thanks!

Black Sabbath was the first band called metal, right? The same way Rites of Spring is called the first emo band, but most of the bands it influenced don't sound like them and are no longer are hardcore punk.

Huh? For me, the instant the music hurts my earballs ~ and mindless screaming would certainly fall into that category ~ it's Sayonara, Screetchers.

What if someone like me decides to invent yet another sub-category and call it UltraSonic Rock? How can you tell if it's UltraSonic Rock? YOU can't hear it, but all the animals within a 1 mile radius are going crazy. Then, i can start sub-sub-ing, as it were, my sub-genre, by adding, what else, SUBsonic notes.

Okay, yeah, i'm crazy, but that's about how i see most of the sub-genres. In almost any categorization system, you have to start eventually bunching stuff together, otherwise you end up with each and every whatever being its own unique thing, at which point, titles of tracks and band names would be useless.


(HEY! i heard that muttered 'Wendy, you ignorant slut!')
Very funny, nice stuff.

I never the stuff with just screaming too. Ya gotta have singing.
Most good metal and prog does have a melody even if it is mixed below the rhythm guitars in the mix.

I disrespectfully disagree. You have no idea what you're talking about.

And I know I've been promising it for 2 years, but I'm serious about reworking the metal education post. Once I get a break from this mountain of papers and tests I'll crank out v.2.0 one night.
