What about metal music do you like? Why is it so awesome?

For me my primary attraction is the intensity of it. I don't know how else to put it...it's just a notch more intense than what most other genres put out. Also there is a ton of variety. It's certainly an explorable genre of music, and that keeps it from getting old or uninteresting. Also the general themes and goals of the music are usually more in line with something I want to be hearing.

It's just plain better than most music.

No other music has the kind of diversity metal has, and no music has as special of an underground or such a dedicated fanbase.

Since I became a metalhead, starting with heavy metal, thrash metal, glam metal, etc, I was just so inspired by the uniqueness of the music. Sure, there are tons of aspects to other genres that are appealing, but metal being out of the mainstream culture gave it so much more room to expand and experiment. Kinda like what you said VR, it never really gets boring. You have the intense genres, and you have the beautiful genres, then you just have the genres that give you an instant adrenaline rush.

Another big reason is the community. Metalheads are brought together by the music, even if they're from completely different backgrounds. This board is a good cross sample of the community. We have all kinds of metalheads, and all kinds of people here. It's really a culture that can make anyone feel welcome.

1. It just sounds good to me

2. Lots of variety and good bands (if you look hard enough)

3. Satan

4. If you're a musician then you'll have a fun time playing the music because it's not just boring power chords or arpeggios (although it can be)

5. Satan

6. Openness in metal music fans. Most are very liberal and open to most types of music.

7. MOTHERFUCKING SATAN

This might sound odd, but I think that heavy metal music opens up the mind of people.

I know it sounds like the person saying that weed "enlightens" you, but I think metal truly does because of it's variety of topics.

Agreed.

To be different, it feels rewarding to like something nobody you know does. Feels more personal
Variety
Far more intense then everything else
Excellent guitar
Awesome metalhead friends

Metal has a lot of really interesting themes. Okay so it has some not-so-interesting themes as well a lot of the time, but overall it's a lot more interesting than say hip-hop or pop or something. I can connect to a lot more metal music more than I can to the stuff that comes out of most genres.

Metal can be fun to listen to, like mainstream music, but it can also have a deeper meaning, unlike most mainstream music.

Well beyond what I quoted from Tax lol.

Metal mean's a lot to me because it was one of the first things about myself that I found relatively on my own and explored as my own. The culture of course is something I must love or I wouldn't be present on forums and enjoy discussions with other fans. More importantly is the music itself which 1st and foremost sounds good simple as that. But beyond that has something to fit all of my whims and moods no matter what they are nothing can console or bring me up like metal and that's pretty much fact. To non fans that seems ridiculous but I'm pretty sure to some degree we can all agree on that basic notion.

Definitely. We all have pretty much the same reasons. I like what you said about it being one of the first things you found (relatively) on your own. I heard metal from my parents and stuff but when I started listening I was just trying to listen to things I enjoyed and looking for other things I enjoyed.

It actually helps people with exploring things on their own, and helps to teach self-help in a way methinks.
