Which subgenre has the most intolerant group of metalheads? I think it’s prog and black.
>>
I have never met a metalhead that isn't intolerant. They're all narrow minded, mouth breathing, obese degenerates.

They’re not mouth breathers but you’re right about them being pretentious.

You're probably some holier-than-thou progressist asshole. If there something metalheads despise is someone that acts they're better than them.

In theory NSBM I guess but in practice any metal show will have a pretty similar crowd. The corpse paint guys wear it to see death metal bands too.

Hipster black metal fans and pretentious prog fans are tied for absolute worst, close second being people who go to beatdown hardcore gigs and complain about hardcore dancing/crowdkilling.
Playing generic riffs in major instead of minor is not edgy, not new, not revolutionary, and most importantly NOT FUCKING HEAVY. Low T faggots can fuck right off.

probably black metallers and old school 'real metal' metal dudes. Prog fans tend to be more annoyiing than intolerant. They'll listen to any music as long as it's complicated, so they'll think they have a super wide and diverse taste in music but can't name a single motown song, that kind of thing. but they can objectively tolerate more styles of music than other metal nerds.

You fucking faggots who are allergic to testosterone have literally every other genre to listen to, be a fan and shape the subculture of. Go listen to indie, go listen fucking radiohead, go listen to shoegaze, go listen to literally anything else.

what a terrible question I can't believe a thread died for this
people who go outside and talk to people know that the majority of people you see at metal concerts don't have your subgenre fixation autism and are capable of forming nuanced opinions unlike wojak posters.
belligerent closeminded morons are listening to every subgenre right now as I type.
you people get your perception of the metal community entirely from the internet huh faggots?
obviously the less popular a particular subgenre or artist is, and the less accessible it is, the more people will incorporate it into their identity as a coping mechanism, purposefully getting into arguments as a means of validating their ego. but the more popular, older metal bands have a much larger army of fanboys and boomers so every type of horrible metal subgenre opinion exists in relatively equal proportion. /metal/ leans towards preferring extreme metal so it skews toward heavy metal, melodeath, and prog hate but you see everything there.

>crowdkilling is anything other than utterly retarded
ridiculous! in addition to looking stupid it also badly hurts people for the crime of being at a concert. in a perfect world anyone caught crowdkilling would get tackled
the people who do it deserve nothing but derision. the genre of the concert is irrelevant because getting decked in the face shouldn't be a requirement for listening to a band.

>badly hurts people for the crime of being at a concert
First of all people getting "badly hurt" from crowdkilling is extremely rare, the only case I can remember was in 2015. With that said, people who go to beatdown concerts know what they're getting into, if some hipster faggot wants to go to a beatdown concert to just stand there like a fucking pussy, getting in the way of people who are trying to have fun and on top of it all act like a fag when people start hardcore dancing too close to him, they deserve a good "accidental" kick in the head.
I'll concede, however, that hardcore dancing in death metal shows is stupid and hardly ever ends well.

easy question.

To be fair though, yeah, I'd say metal is gatekeeped the hardest. Sometimes I wonder how meal fans feel when a lot of modern rappers like Zillakami mix black metal and their past experiences in the genre with new school hip hop, but then i realise I don't care.

I can't even be considered a /meal/fag nowadays, in fact I'm a fucking indeh fag, but back in my teens I was kind of a metalhead so unlike most Indiefags that started listening to metal because of p4k, consuming every fotm Blackgaze/Drone/Post-metal/Avant-garde death metal album, I know what metal niche I truly love and that's Thrash and maybe 1st Wave bm, because they're just fucking punk
special mention to Technical/Prog thrash which I absolutely adore because of albums like >>105938872 (sounds like punk too they're basically canuck Die Kreuzen with Post-punk bass), still love all that stuff nowadays, Sadus, Holy Terror, Mekong Delta, Artillery, SOD, Megadeth whatever
about the metalheads I know in real life, I've never truly met a massive asshole, just ignorant people sometimes and then lots of regular metalheads, maybe I WAS the asshole when I teased some of my best friends for listening to modern metalcore, Sabaton or Dream Theater... aaaaah I remember when me, my bro and some other friends listened to Death Angel, Metallica, Pantera and Exodus together
btw one very good friend of mine who's a Deathcore bitch knows this guy who is apparently a gargantuan asshole, and he's a technicalfag band / drama kid and a massive Dream Theater fan always talking shit about other music cause it doesn't have wank, so I guess those people do exist

Yeah I'm not really listening to obscure stuff but when I'm also listening to jazz, classical, indie, electronic, folk, edm, rap, I'm less inclined to do deep dives into any genre in particular. I'm not mad about it though. I have a long time to get to more bands.

Thrash, because most of them are really young fans just getting into "extreme" metal and they generally take the whole metal image very seriously.
Hard Rock fans are as cancerous because they believe the classics are the pinacle of music composition.
As of now (post-web2.0) metal fans (of any subgenre) seem to be relatively tolerant. There's some maturity implied in branching out within subgenres, or at least that's what I've observed.

Well, you are right about this. Converge, Earth Crisis, Hatebreed and their followers (Code Orange, Knocked Loose) are much more metal sounding than 1980s hardcore sounding. I think the differing subcultures and lyrical topics is the only reason people tried to separate them from metal.

Hipster “intellectual” faggot spotted

Listen, I’m not some fucking incel autist but elitist behavior IS a good thing for metal, especially now
To give you people some perspective on why black metal fans hate blackgaze so much you have to understand that they think of it as a mockery of the genre, imagine if a rap music fan hear music made by a white person whos never stepped foot outside of the suburbs or a prestigious collage, and this guy is “rapping” about how awesome and rich he is, and the beat is just a trap beat with banjo music, and you can tell by how he raps that he hasn’t even actually listened to that much rap in the first place, you can imagine how rap fans would feel about that
Hopefully someone got some insight and now understands why us black metal fans hate blackgaze, and other shitty soulless trends that have emerged in the genre recently
>>
I think the black metal elitists are right about the impact that blackgaze is having and how it's ruining the genre. However I also think that black metal is among the worst subgenres of metal with one of the most autistic fanbases, and it's fun to watch it get ruined.

Checked it out just to be sure and as expected, it's not all that heavy (especially considering it's a brutal death metal album), it's not entirely in major (the only good riff in the first song is a chromatic caveman riff) and all the "le happy brutal death metal riff in major xD" pretentious shit and jazzy prog sections suck.

Honestly, anyone who becomes a purist/gatekeeper for any genre kills it slowly. Music exists to be changed over time, to reflect the change in the world, like most great art does. If you are just adhering to a genre's rules because some faggots had a really fun moshpit in 1987 and can't imagine anything more fun than that, then you are killing the genre. You are dating it. Bands that play "pure thrash" are the most boring bands out there and it fucking shows.

This goes for all genres too. Not all Indie has to sound like one Pavement song on loop. Pop music should've moved on from Britney Spears clones by now. Drake has released the same album for 10 years. Whoever thinks that Classic Rock is the only good music out there makes the genre a laughing stock.

Seriously, grow up. Allow the art to change and see the beauty that comes from it. If not, then you are just listening to content, rehashed like vomit.
>>
>>105952168
I understand the point you're making but there is a difference between innovating a certain genre and then stripping all of it's qualities and shifting the sound completely. This isn't always the case but blackgaze among other certain genres attach the label of "black metal" simply due to the loose blast beats and shrieking in their vocals, ignoring the fact that there are a handful of extreme and post metal bands that do the exact same thing. There can be more nuances to a genre that still keep true to the prospects of what said genre is, but then there's slapping a label and trying to jump into a scene just for the sake of it. But that's just me.

genres and elitists aside, I think we can all agree that metal has been and always will be inferior to rap

Seems like prog metal has a reputation of pretentiousness but I don’t know anything about music and the stuff I like always turns out to be prog. I don’t even really know what qualifies something as “progressive” to be honest. I guess I just like that the music is always changing and isn’t very repetitive, and it usually tells a cool story like Parallax II by BTBAM or anything by Haken.

Seeing pretentiousness in others is the most pretentious thing someone can do. There's nothing worse than faggots complaining about a thing being pretentious. Yes, this post is pretentious and it is because it has to be.
The problem with prog metal is that you have some truly great bands that simply make good metal and don't write something within a genre, like Edge of Sanity or Opeth who end up in the same category with some of the dullest, blandest shit possible that also gets called prog metal. Most bands fall in the second category, you have tons shit of prog metal bands who have no idea about Magma or Gentle Giant and their influences are the same old Metallica, Pantera and some other bands that everyone is listening to.
I love prog rock, but I can't stand prog metal.

>>105955880
What makes something progressive?

What is the difference between rock and metal?

In your opinion obviously
>>
I don't really care to define genres all that much and i tend to just listen to what sounds good to me but what the fuck is supposed to be the difference between power, thrash, and speed metal

For example to my ear mega death and blind guardian should be in the same genre
>>
>>105955949
Speed metal is not a genre, it's an idea of playing fast.
Megadeth and Blind Guardian are nothing alike.
Also note that Blind Guardian has changed their sound a lot through the ages.

Speed metal originated in the mid-late 1970s and early 1980s as a much faster subgenre of traditional heavy metal. There's traditional heavy metal bands with speed metal songs like Judas Priest, but speed metal bands almost exclusively play fast.
Power metal and thrash metal both split off from speed metal in the mid-80s.
Thrash metal is a combination of speed metal with early 1980s hardcore punk.
Power metal was more of an evolution of speed metal in which often played in major scales, were very chorus centric, and tends to be very dramatic and melodic.

Speed metal is a legitimate subgenre, saying it's just "metal played fast" is like saying that doom metal isn't a real genre becaucse it's metal played slow.

The stages of a metal fan:

1. non-metal but similar music
2. obsessed with the new sound but not comfortable with expanding beyond the first few bands he found
3. starts adventuring and collecting as if it's an all you can eat
4. starts getting picky
5. starts becoming elitist
6. remembers he likes more genres than metal and that can apply to the subgenres of metal, begins to loosen up
7. listens to and enjoys a wide range of good metal, thinks most metalheads are retarded for being elitists
8. metal? yeah have you listened tojudas priest or melo death?
>>
>>105957418
9. the prog fan
You either die as an elitist or live long enough to become too careless to even give a shit about new music.
>>
>>105957474
i never had that transition. i've heard prog metal, some of it is alright but it never had a mainstay effect on me. i prefer other genres of music nowadays.
>>
metalfags are only elitist and intolerant to other subgenres of metal they think are shit. outside of metal they don't care.
>>
>>105957536
I should generalise, it can also be classical.

I don't hate myself. I hate everyone else. But I'm not enough of a narcisist to think I'm any better, thus my anger being directed to people that think they are.
>>
>>105957905
>getting mad because someone is better than you
Classic narcissism

I only listen to Type O Negative
