Most diverse sub genre of metal?!
 
As the title says.

What do you think is the most diverse sub genre of metal? And why?

MicShazam 01-29-2019 03:35 AM

Alt metal, because what defines the genre is, to an extent, that the music doesn't really fit in other metal sub genres.


And progressive metal. Not all of it sounds like Dream Theater or Periphery. There's a lot of variation, like there should be for a genre with the progressive tag.

I think black metal has seen and will continue to see the most evolution and adaption. It consumes other influences like a monster, taking from them what it sees fit.

90% of prog metal sounds exactly like Dream Theater and Periphery. Most bands are straight up garbage.

Any genre is gonna mainly be filled with lame, uncreative bands, but there's still a lot of bands that have more of a style of their own that I would say are more or less some sort of prog metal. Leprous, Opeth and Madder Mortem, just to name a few that don't do the DT thing or the Periphery thing.

Aight I'll give you Leprous but Opeth are mostly lame too.

You should check out Blue Oyster Cult.

Oh yeah, famed progressive metal/death metal band Blue Oyster Cult.
I've heard about those guys.

Ja, that's 100% where Opeth got their sound, keeping with the trend of self-proclaimed progressive music being derivative as can be.

A 70's hard rock/heavy psych thread would be cool.
