n00b metal.  ;D Nice word.

What's different about that and "real" metal?
This is btw a serious question. I usually don't listen to metal.

nintendodork

I think he means there's stuff like Bullet for My Valentine, Metallica (If you can call it metal), etc.
That's noob metal, everyone knows them and they're not super heavy
Real metal is stuff that Hades listens to (apparently ::))
Some real metal bands IMO are Behemoth and At the Gates...possibly All That Remains

I thought "real" metal was like "real" indie rock -- if you've heard of the band, then it's not "real".  If a band you like comes under scrutiny, just say you liked them before they were popular.

Real metal is the stuff that isn't watered down for mass appeal. Bullet For My Valentine is really just pop music with distorted guitars  :D. The band I put in my last post, Fullmoon is tr00 metal. They're National Socialist Black Metal, essentially racist, nihilistic, crazy people. This is very extreme and most of the real stuff isn't like that. If you're interested some of my favorite metal bands are:
German metal ftw:
Kreator
Sodom
Destruction
Japanese metal rules too:
Galneryus
Sabbat
Abigail
Gallhammer


Aura Noir
Exodus
Death
Iced Earth
Black Sabbath
Judas Priest
etc.

Warning: if you're not familiar with this stuff a lot of it will take some getting used to.

LOL You're thinking of those elitist types that only like black metal bands that released one demo in 1988.

DEATH = BEST DRUMMER EVARONEELEVEN(at one time)

Gene Hogland is the man, though I don't like Strapping Young Lad or Dethklok. You should check out Dark Angel, he played with them in the mid 80s, really savage stuff.

nintendodork

I've heard of them, they're pretty good.  I like SYL and Dethklok a lot, they're my two favorite bands...Dethklok is first (plus Metalocalpyse is pretty funny, too :P)

Piano music.

Helps me to relax while translating. Couldn't listen to anything with lyrics. Too much distraction from work.
