A bit hard to explain why metal is satanic when you're listening to Skillet, or etc.

Skillet doesn't fits to "satanism" black metal does

True, but it's still metal regardless.
And, in the infinite world of metal, there's probably one Christan Black Metal band out there.

They don't even know what they're talking about. It's just all so untrue, and they think it's true.. this is just something I can't stand, man. Metal is better than what an average idiot thinks it is.

Everyone thinks it's just straight up repetitive noise, but it's not. Metal has over 2 dozen sub genres, and therefore lots of variety.

Metal is misunderstood indeed, for I like it due to its beautiful sounds and some that feature history or that can get me pumped up.

:) (Smile) You said everything that was needed to say. I'm kind of sorry for that looooong comment on Proressive Rock Is Underrated, but those guys arguing with You about what was more influential and what is better made me angry. So, Thomas, please take it as a kind of a sign that I agree with You.
Oh, by the way, what's Your favourite Genesis song? ;) (Wink)

My second favourite is "The Musical Box" and my third favourite is "Driving The Last Spike". Yeah, my three favourites are all from three different eras of Genesis, and all are 10 minutes long.

I agree. People can't even understand it's not "Screamo" music because Screamo came from Emo and then they whine saying it's all horrible screaming music. They don't give the non extreme genres a chance. Not liking it is respectable and ok, but it's like at least try to understand what you don't like hahaha

Metal music can have several styles and several topics to write lyrics about, but it's so stereotyped that everyone thinks it's totally evil (well, evil themes can be an actual topic to write some lyrics but theres many more such as history, epic battles, fantasy, good versus evil and good winning, literature... even christianity and there's also instrumental metal). There's so much stuff to choose inside the very diverse metal genre. I've seen many people who misjudge the metal music due to stereotypes
I'm a christian metalhead and my faves are power metal, symphonic metal, melodic metal and white metal (some also say due to my beliefs it's not right to listen to metal *not even instumental metal * but I proved long ago they're wrong, there's many topics in lyrics and many styles of sounds to choose)

Metal is indeed one of the most diverse music genres that exists today, thanks to all the sub-genres, genre crosses and other stylistic choices of sound that bands use.

It's quite some time since I posted this stamp, and since then I've met many openminded people who's okay with metal, despite them not listening to it. It's a nice feeling meeting such people. :meow:

Besides, some people thinks playing metal is way too easy but it's actually one of the hardest music genres to play, along with jazz and classic ;) (classic, metal and jazz genres need an incredible intrumental precission :nod:)

I'm totally okay with metal, 'cause there's actually a wide range of choices :meow: and yeah, it's absolutely nice to meet some more who are totally okay with metal :aww:

Indeed some people doesn't understand what metal is about, but since I posted this stamp, which is about 2 years ago, I've learned to teach them what metal really is, even if they don't listen to it.

I've also learned to treasure those who have an open mind to all music.

todays rap and 'pop' fans just don't get it, when it comes to metal they're lost on what it truly is; passion, rebellion, masculinity, and freedom.
