One of my friends went to a concert tonight to see her favorite band a rather new metalcoreish outfit called Black Veil Brides. Now this isn't to bash the band or anything but the venue had this labeled as a "Goth Metal Show".... yeah just makes me question peoples IQ.

To the untrained ear some sub genres do not seem metal, like power metal or some folk. People just have no idea how to react. Its indeed annoying

I'm not all too sure of what goth metal exactly is...
But I know that's not it.

i think that the uneducated public in general has its assumptions about what metal is.. this is just another example of this misunderstanding.

i feel that it is my duty as a metalhead to help educate these poor souls Razz

That's it. Metalisfav needs a Metal Tutorial thread to help newcomers understand what metal is and what bands are what.

Before you can say "metalisfav" you need to know what you're faving. That's a goddamn requirement. That's a FUCKING goddamn requirement!

When i was young people would tell me the misfits were metal cause they played fast , had evil lyrics .. People just dont know or even worse dont care .. Most of the older stuff i say is hard rock / ac/dc , doors , van halen , stuff like that . But you know REAL metal when you hear it !!

Agreed, I've said that to so many people lol. They will ask me how you tell something is metal and you just really can't give a definition. It's just something you feel ya know?

I wouldn't call them "people" then, more like sub-humans or something.

Ahah I couldn't have asked for a better response
I am trying to convert my friends to better music, so I started with melo death. And after explaining it to this one guy. He replied, alright awesome metal death!

Metal Death? Sounds like some Thrash song from the mid 80s

Metal Death! Metal Death!
The most metal way to die!
Metal Death! Metal Death!

I admit, I love that the general population is completely ignorant about metal. Pretty much no one I know recognizes 95% of the bands I like, and I love it. I know it would be good if society would just stop being ignorant, but society has a knack for ruining everything that is good. Seriously, I hate society. Let them have their "metal" shows, and be completely oblivious to the 20 something metal subgenres. This way, they can't ruin it.
