What is the appeal of this genre? I'll admit, some entry level songs which have some melody left sound pretty good, like enter sandman, but the rest is literally ear rape and cancer. How can a person like this shit?

It's not ear rape at all. A bit abrasive sure but not the worst thing your ears can perceive. Anyway you like Enter Sandman because it's a very melodic and poppy song not because it's a good metal song.

You seem like you hate yourself for being a pleb and take it out on patricians.

As I said, so far the only metal song I liked was enter sandman.
If you think my opinion is wrong that metal is shitty noise, please convince me otherwise

You know nothing about music is you think anything less melodic than stadium rock has no melody left.

Anthony Thompson

Was pretty nice, until he started singing. Then it just became laughable. How can you like this shit?
I like all non-memey genres. Why do I have only a problem with metal?

No, it's not about the sound of the guitars
Shitty repeating
Trying to be as loud as possible
Senseless edgy screaming
Can someone explain what the appeal in metal can be, from a musical perspective?

Alexander Davis
Alexander Davis

So? If you listened to music for years and can only appreciate melodic and poppy shit,while being a musician,you should unironically consider changing your hobby or hanging yourself

Juan Russell
Juan Russell

This sounds nice, but I'm pretty sure thats barely metal

Austin Harris
Austin Harris

Where did I say that. I literally like all genres EXCEPT metal and its subgenres
For example death grips (meme incoming) sounds nice because it has some kind of originality and unique rhythm to it, while not being exactly pleasant to the ears. It just makes sense, from a musical perspective

Lucas Harris
Lucas Harris

music is not allowed to have repetition
enter sandman somehow has less "shitty repeating" than other metal
Trying to be as loud as possible
If that truly were the goal of metal then it failed miserably. That's more of noise's ballpark.
Senseless edgy screaming
Too pleb to understand.

Benjamin Lee
Benjamin Lee

By shitty repeating I mean beating the drums like your on LSD without making any sense.
The question still stands:
What does metal have to offer from a musical perspective?

Lincoln Kelly

Metal-heads like the fact that most people can't enjoy the genre.

Andrew Garcia
Andrew Garcia

Most people go through metal from least to most "abrasive". Starting with Metallica and going through their discography is perfectly fine as a start. You can't call yourself a "metal fan" after just that though.

Grayson Perry

the only good metal bands are megadeth and burzum lol

OP of you can't understand why people can like different things than you then you unironically must have autism also people like metal because it takes rock music to the extreme.The aggressiveness,the rawness and its over the top theatrical elements are extremely cathartic to some people.

Cameron Cook
Cameron Cook

so bottom line is you can't handle harsh vocals or distortion

Levi Rodriguez

ok

Aiden Ortiz

I can accept harshness and aggressiveness, if it has some meaning behind it. There is a difference between noise, senseless screaming, and other harsh genres.

Cameron Russell
Cameron Russell

What harsh and aggressive music do you like then? I'm willing to bet none.

Elijah Baker
Elijah Baker

Industrial hip hop, hard drum and bass, Dubstep (yes, Dubstep ist aggressive)
All genres that sound better than the average screamy metal song

Samuel Cruz
Samuel Cruz

lmao there is no hope for you

Ian Sanchez

Says the metalhead
Last time. These are examples of genres I personally find better than metal, not necessarily like them.
There is a reason so much of metal is based on edgy appearance and edgy words. The music is shit, and they have to replace it with something to feel fulfilled

Adam Moore
Adam Moore

no its funny you think dubstep and drum and bass are harsh. harsh music is just too much for you to handle

Evan Bell
Evan Bell

Go listen to pulse demon and then come back to metal. you'll understand how much of a pussy you're being right now

Julian Scott
Julian Scott

pulse demon is one-dimensional and boring. if you turn the volume down you can fall asleep to it. should've recommended birdseed instead.
