mallcore, the last time i heard that it was from kid wearing a slayer shirt, the same douche who asked if i drink blood, he stupidly insulted everything about melodeath, even though slayer was integral in helping build part of what is dm, one day he said it to some kid wearing a korn shirt, he got the shit beatin out of him
people who use the term "emo" have no idea what real music is,
only posers use that word in the context you did, though i'm sure you're not a poser, just speaking without thinking, bands themselves are rarely that bad, but often the music is misinterpreted by "fans"
it's pretty disgusting to see someone dissed who has passed, it's like dissing on jimi, janis, jim, kurt, john, or bob.
or dissing on cliff burton or chuck schuldiner, dimebag. bon scott, or randy rhoads...etc
they've toured with and gained the approval of metallica, megadeth, iron maiden, and ozzy
did i mention mike portnoy, the drummer from dream theater recorded with them, ...etc
if you wanna diss, just say they're shitty, or that they aren't metal, because they aren't,
they have obvious punk and hard rock traits, as well as a few other interesting experiments
current metal is saturated with various influences, do you know how pissed people were when thrash started?
it was punk-metal hybrid music, and an avid response to at that time overwhelming scene of glam, as well as an evolution from speedmetal to crossover thrash
it's okay if you don't like the music, but don't spit on the grave of someone you don't know,
i have the upmost respect for the band, but i realize that when a band becomes popular the fans grow,
there are plenty of douches who get behind a band and make them look bad, ie the countless "scenesters" whose dive into metal and other brands of heavy, have created needless genres and countless bandwagon jumps
anyway, i could of overreacted like the person whose post this was, but rather i constructively flamed, and typed a bunch of bs you won't give a fuck about,
so go listen to the same music over and over and over again, and continue to diss on other peoples tastes
people like you give metal, no music in general a bad name
you could make fun of other peoples religions and politics too, i mean i hold music to the same regard
but that's not my point,
i'm sure that below this post there will surely be something along the lines of:
"blahblablah you're mallcore, emu, faggot, blablabla gay jokes...etc" so original
it makes me happy knowing that you don't like them,
btw metal has been "false" since before either of us were born,
black metal, death metal, and trash metal speed and ethics were influenced by punk music.
unless of course your a true-blues metal fan and nothing else, i mean iron maiden was influenced by punk music just as much as classical and blues,
nazis were elitists too
i've been a little nerdy, go ahead and leave me a post, i didn't think anybody could top the idiots on youtube
