This is an opinion. Just like people shouldn't think all Metal is about Demons or Satan. Like your doing right now. Metal is about life and many other things that go with it. Poser "Metal" is different from True Metal.

ok seriously...Metal can be pretty brutal but also at times it can be so beautiful and melodic.

and also don't judge Metal by it's vocals, there's more to metal than just the vocals.



i dunno..it can be done, i swear!
if you get a talented turntablist like dj spooky, dan the automator, or the x-ecutioners you can combine them pretty well...
my feeling is, when its starts getting stale mix it and recombine it
...or we can listen to ozzy 'til doomsday

Rap. No question about it. But then again, classical music owns.

I never said it couldn't be done..

I just disagreed with your comment because Areosmith isn't Metal.

No, you can't compare rap and metal...lol

The best is rap metal! lool Seriously, I don't know many metal bands, so I can't be objective :(
I like rap songs, but I prefer metal, I think. I don't have rap albums^^' I prefer metal for its music, which I find more interesting, even though it's harder than rap music. I can't listen to it everyday^^'


Surprisingly, yes you can compare the two. Both have gotten too much shit from people who do not understand the genre itself, either from dumb mainstream "metal/rap" fans or ignorant elite "asian pop scene is godly" douchebags.

Metal has a lot more depth than your blinding aura of ignorance. Screaming/growling/grunting is a form of expressing aggression, which by the way, is what extreme metalheads look for. It is also meant to be taken as another instrument, along with the face punching guitar riffs, lightning fast double bass drumming and funky bass lines (rarely). I admit, it took awhile to get into the whole growling thing, but now, I love it especially gutteral growls. Instrumentation wise, they pretty much wipe the floor with every single mainstream band out there. Try playing Fermented Offal Discharge by Necrophagist and tell me how "easy" it is. Just because you don't understand the complexity behind it, it doesn't mean it is shit.

P.S.: Listen to Windowpane by Opeth and Alive by Circus Maximus. It's so full of screaming right?

umm yea u should really think b4 u type, not all metal is like that. i know sume is but not all.

and id rather listen 2 screaming than lyrics about sex and other shit like that

ohh and 1 more thing metal is not demonic, death metal is more demonic. get ur genres straight b4 u critizise



How ironic. Get your genres straight.Death Metal isn't demonic. They do not have songs that pray to demons and all that, except a few like Project Hate MCMXCIX and Deicide. Generalizing all of them is just as dumb as generalizing the Metal as a whole. The moment you mentioned Avenged Sevenfold as an example of a good metal band, it shows how much you really know about the genre. :lol:

don't bother with these "whatever vs rap/hip hop fight" fights. usually it's a bunch of ignorant people trying to defend their favorite music by criticizing the more popular or dominant form. the truly ignorant ones stereotype the enitre genre into all rap being about "b!tches and money". arguing with the ignorant is like arguing with forrest gump, eventually you just feel silly for even trying because they'll never get rap topics cover more than that.

the funny ones are those that argue in technical ways. they says that rap lacks melody or make up other rules to demonstrate how rap is inferior in some way. these people are funny because they present themselves as some sort of musical authority without any credentials to back them up. at the same time, by which standard do they judge what is music to begin with? real authorities critique from within the genre, not by comparing it to others.

the "try doing this or that and tell me how easy it is..." arguement is silly because one could always turn it around and ask the questioner the same thing: "why don't you try and do a good freestyle rap?" the real answer is that all types music needs to be learned and practiced. playing the guitar, drums, rapping, singing, sampling, etc...all require learning and practice.

finally, look at the environment you're arguing in. the internet is made up of people who can afford expensive monthly broadband connections, expensive computers, monitors, etc. they live in a different world. rap means nothing to them because they never experienced the life depicted in rap music.

just keep in mind that rap/hip hop is one of the most popular genres in the world and let the haters be.

I'd rather go with Metal. Rap doesn't really suit my taste.
