>>25966086 I hate being categorized as a metalhead considering all the death metal teenagers that make up the group. So in sort I am a metalhead but I only really like thrash power metal and some metal core
>>25966086 >gorgoroth >emperor >exodus >hellhammer Guaranteed that's a male relative's garment, perhaps hand-me-downed; girls only listen to the most mainstream shit (The Big Four, Maiden, Priest, Sabbath) so they APPEAR like they're interested in a "unique" genre.
>>25966837 Okay kid, what do you think that angry teenagers listened to before the mid 2000s?
It was shit like Korn and Marilyn Manson, and before that it was shit like Suicidal Tendencies and Black Flag, and in some places it was Impaled Northern Moonforest or whatever Darkened Symphonic Black Metal shit you're into
Literally MOM AND DAD DON'T UNDERSTAND ME: The Music.
Nothing wrong with that when you're like 16-20something year old, but eventually your do grow out of it or you become that fat balding dude that hangs around kids half or even a third his age at metal & punk shows.
Nah, i'm not some under 20 who still labels himself or makes it clear he's filling the stereotype. "Metalheads" are probably one of the more obnoxious groups of people out there, even more than those R&B kids since they need to shove it in everyones faces, I know because I was at that stage before. Still enjoy the genre in doses, don't enjoy the people and the "epic moshpits and long hair windmilling" or "DUDE CHECK OUT MY SLAYER SHIRT I'M BRUTAL AS FUCK" fags, especially gone past the age of 22.
>>25966086 I used to listen to more hard metal, Amon Amarth, Burzum etc. but now I only to Iron Maiden, lyrics are somewhat more relatable, guitar riffs and solos are more on point, bass play is unmatched, but that is just my opinion.
Here you got the song I'm listening right now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9DBafBhDSc
>>25968512 huh, kudos on Kat doing vocals, she was the best part of the last album. not sure how I fee about them going sludge since that was more or less what Pig Destroyer and for me AnB was always about the brain-vibrating computer-generated grincore beats. but hey it's not bad.
>>25967303 >go to metal show >it's full of smelly teenagers and drunk young adults >the band are probably the oldest ones there besides the security guards (which are btw, highly unnecessary at these concerts because metalfags are very mellow pussies, contrary to the stereotype) >enjoying the music and watching the band play >edgy fucktards start pushing each other >can't enjoy it anymore with the slight but persistent annoyance of people lightly shoving me
>>25966086 I used to be a "proper" metal head when I was 16-19. Had long hair, only metal-related clothing (hoodies, shirts, ripped jeans, chains and heavy boots). Now I dress more normie-like - I prefer army field jackets and standard jeans and sometimes I wear some band shirt.
But the music is still the same, perhaps even more "extreme" (when compared to entry-level bands like Slipknot). Now I'm visiting Obscene Extreme Fest every year in Trutnov (CZE) which is large grindcore/death metal festival.
But I also like progressive: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4W7spPmaVk
>>25968674 Nile, Hour of Penance and some other bands I forgot.
I've always thought Nile is meh desu. I went to see Hour of Penance and they were really cool. I stayed a little bit after hour of penance finished their set to see the black dahlia next and they sucked...
>black metal >the most crowded genre of metal >literally every normie who wants to say hes a metalhead starts with blackmetal >hundreds of thousands of bands as if every home in europe has a black metal band >robot music
I dislike metalheads but I listen to metal (Slipknot, Disturbed, Parkway Drive, Bullet for My Valentine, mainstream stuff mostly). Its just that metalheads think they are so unique for this one thing they do different than others which is their music choice. Most people I know who listen to metal are really chill, dress up normally, interact with normal people and go to normal parties.
>>25967052 You're trying too hard. Admittedly, OP is a moron, but that's not necessarily indicative of ask people that listen to metal. Hell, I listen to lots of types of music, but metal is my favorite genre. A lot of the bands don't even have angry lyrics.
>>25969823 Yes, yes, only if they ask me if I like metal.
I actually hate most metal and grew out of it years ago, and then I grew my hair out just because, nothing to do with metal. I only wear band shirts if I'm fucking around the house and also for nostalgia's sake.
I could throw all of it out, but if I ever want to fuck an 18 year old goth girl again those are my best bet.
>>25970005 >(Hint: All women who are into metal are bottom-tier women)
While that is a scientific fact, girl from other parallel subcultures (emo, goth, punk, etc.) are far more attractive and are also quite superficial so looking like a walking stereotype is an easy way of getting laid.
>>25969878 Because then you're a cartoon character
Yeah, some people think I'm a degenerate, but who cares, I'm happy with leather jackets, boots and band shirts. Most people who don't sperg about what other people wear don't care/give approval that I'm wearing whatever makes me happy.
And you could not be more wrong about metal girls being bottom-tier. Dyed hair, tattoo'd tomboys are the fucking BEST. Period.
>>25970383 You don't even know me. You're being irrational based on some stupid assumption that you have about people that listen to metal. Maybe if you treated people better you wouldn't be so bitter and alone.
>>25970296 >I'm comfortable enough in my masculinity
Being a metalhead is one of the most overly macho thing possible senpai
>...and that's bad?
I didn't say it was, but like with punk it's just funny that all these people are like "look at how different and unique and far-remove from society I am because I dress like literally every other metalhead/punk out there. I'm not like those other people who all dress the same and act the same and all listen to the same music!"
I know because I was one of them, but hey it got me laid so I'm not complaining. Ride that meme while you still can.
>>25969823 Only reason why I don't wear them is because most band shirts suck. Seriously, it's fucking hard to find a plain black t-shirt with a band logo printed in white and no gay shit on the back or sleeves.
>>25970060 Looking inwards and judging myself according to how I would be judged by others was how I learned to stop looking like an autistic metalhead. I only wish that others were capable of doing the same.
>>25970587 What's autistic about liking a genre of music? You have a really skewed view of the world. You seem paranoid.
When did I say that a genre of music should define how you look? I dress however I want. I don't dress like a metalhead because I like other forms of clothing. Dude, do you not see the world around you? Music outside of metal also affect how people dress.
I don't really do it to dress any different, I know whenever I go to a concert venue I'm going to see hundreds of other leather-and-denim types running around. If I wanted 'individuality' I'd match rainbow suspenders with a construction vest or whatever. Leather jackets fucking rock, so I wear one. The bands I like fucking rock, so I wear their shirts. I'm happy enough with that.
>>25970690 Go, get messed up on all the drugs and adrenaline you can manage, go dive into a moshpit. Trust me, you can't have a bad time when you are off your head like that. Hell, just get hopped up on adrenaline and act out, nobody else there gives a shit. Everyone else is there to go full retard anyway, so do whatever the fuck you want with no shame.
>>25970739 Liking a genre of music is not autistic. Presenting yourself in a deliberately anti-social way is autistic.
>>25970752 I have not had a bad experience because I've never been self-loathing enough to have anything to do with a metal chick. But I have known enough men who have to know that I am right. Every metal chick I have ever met has been some sort of mentally-ill degenerate.
>>25970990 Dressing in any way that is significantly different from the norm is an explicit rejection of society. It is literally no different from how Tumblr landwhales dye their hair bright pink. You wish to stand out because you are arrogant, but without having done anything which meaningfully sets you apart from others through effort and ability to justify that attitude.
>>25971146 Those are a lot of assumptions there, guy. I don't dress like that much anymore. If I wear a shirt like that, it's because I think the design is cool looking. I don't "reject society." It sounds like you're the one rejecting people with your assumptions of them. Arrogant? I don't think that I've ever been called arrogant before. I'm a student, I work, I volunteer when I can, and I do extracurricular activities to better my future. Some stupid shirt doesn't define who I am. Apparently you were very insecure and paranoid about the way people think about you. Guess what? People don't notice you. You aren't that important. You, my friend, are the one who sounds arrogant. You truly believe that all eyes are on you, don't you?
>>25971122 Hedonism (degeneracy) is a false enjoyment of life. True enjoyment comes from fulfillment of our purpose. Our purpose is to have children and raise them well. You will not find a good wife to raise your children well with whilst you are an autistic metal head.
>>25971258 I had long hair from the ages of about 14-19, and I too found it difficult to have it cut because it had become such a feature of my "identity". However, I am very glad that I did, and doing so greatly improved my self-confidence. There is hope for you yet.
>>25969301 >>25969560 I knew someone would mention Sabaton and it's frankly embarrassing that you like getting cucked by them.
They write lyrics for morons. Their lyrics are written so that even the stupidest, densest motherfucker on the planet cannot misunderstand them.
>hurr durr, guys what if our retarded audience don't understand yet that this song is about D-Day? >we should throw the date and the location into the lyrics, they can't possibly fuck it up then! >yay, we're intellectual!
>>25971353 metal chicks are almost always "one of the boys" and "avoid girls because they're too much drama" and then pic related. I knew a fat metalhead guy with a literal neckbeard who wore leather trenchoats with cowboy hats and he stilled managed to get himself some metal poon.
>>25971353 In my experience, metal chicks will string along ugly/autistic men for easy access to money/drugs/emotional support, but will invariably dump or cheat on them after a short amount of time.
>>25971509 I am well aware of my own autism, but I don't act autistically in public as metal heads do. The fact that you had to resort to le epic hat meme shows that you cannot refute my argument.
>>25971349 Believing that you should not be beholden to social conventions is pure arrogance. I do not wish for people to notice me unless it is due to some particular talent or virtue that I have displayed
>>25971683 You are the one with poor reading comprehension because you assumed, in the first place, that I was referring to people who listen to metal and not just those who express the fact that they listen to metal. You also failed to realise that I was addressing all those who dress alternatively as "you" in general, and not you specifically.
>>25971827 But so what if they listen to metal and wear shirts? I know plenty of people just like me. My friend dresses alternatively and she's a doctor. Just because she dresses a certain way doesn't mean that she doesn't adhere to social standards. Not sure what kind of people you know, but you seem to like to lump everyone together based on their outward appearances.
>>25971957 >My friend dresses alternatively and she's a doctor Disgusting. How they even allow her to practice shows how shit the standards of the medical community are now. If I saw a doctor with a piercing, tattoo, or unnatural hair color, I'd report them to the board for being unsanitary.
>>25971957 >>25971994 I have explained above. If you dress and act like a degenerate, you will never find a non-degenerate partner to raise your children well with. Additionally, the vast majority of metal heads I have known have been useless drains upon society, unable to hold down basic jobs and too stupid or unmotivated to attend university.
I don't have to refute anything, your off in your own dream land. I've said my piece, you respond by firing off at the mouth with rhetoric and condescending attitude about the 'unhonorable' life everyone else lives. 'le fedora meme' is the perfect term for it.
Pick one senpai. Either you're a robot who doesn't belong anywhere or you're a fucking metalhead that dresses like a metalhead and acts like a metalhead and listens to all the metalhead music and fits in perfectly in the metalhead community.
>>25972734 >they marry a metal head chick who inevitably divorces or cucks them or >they can't get married at all because 90% of metal heads are men, and normal women do not want them or >they have kids who grow up to be even bigger degenerates than them
No matter what, once they reach the latter decades of their life, they will surely hate themselves. Just like all the fat, bald, angry, 50 year old thrashers that you see at any metal festival.
>>25972997 as someone who has spent plenty of years in black metal circles, including editing numerous interviews I feel justified to tell that what you're implying is total bullshit. even metal subgenres are divided as fuck with everyone assuming holier than though attitude and parading a list of poser bands that should be obvious for any other sane bm guy, according to them. of course, the list is different for every individual. let's not pretend like shitting on others in their community isn't metalhead's favorite passtime
>>25974301 I had a chance to see them along with Killswitch right after Randy got cleared. Their live sets look amazing and Mark Morton is probably my favourite guitarist out there. The dude seems like a robot too, apparently on tour he just locks himself away after shows because he doesn't like the interaction with people.
Gorod (pretty much everything) Angra (Temple of Shadows) Galneryus (Phoenix Rising+few songs from other albums/Angel of Salvation) Barren Earth Disillusion (Back in Times of Splendor) Persefone (Spiritual Migration) Symphony X (most of it)
i only like metal (black & thrash metal specifically) but i wish i could enjoy normie music a bit more. concerts are a great way to meet chicks and a lot of girls i meet are very passionate about music. i just can't enjoy anything but metal tho
