I was thinking the other day about the genre metal.
Going trough some different sub genre's i realized that the actual genre metal doesn't exist (or i am overseeing something big?)
The point is, that you got bands like GnR and ACDC. We all call those bands Rock.
But when it comes to Metallica/Slayer you cannot call them metal because there will be always someone who is correcting you and saying that that is 'trash'metal. (pretty strange cuz they are the foundation of today's metal scene)
Nowadays you got different kinds of metal. Deathmetal, Trashmetal, Doommetal, Metalcore, Black metal. But is there any band alive that actually has the label 'Metal'?
i say who cares about all the subgenres. if it sounds good i listen to it. frankly people that worry too much about subgenres are rather annoying
