You can't kill the metal! The metal will live on! Punk-Rock tried to kill the metal. But they failed, as they were smite to the ground. New-wave tried to kill the metal. But they failed, as they were striken down to the ground. Grunge tried to kill the metal. Ha, hahahahaha...

They failed, as they were thrown to the ground! No-one can destroy the metal. The metal will strike you down with a vicious blow. New-wave tried to destroy the metal, but the metal had its way. Grunge then tried to dethrone the metal, but metal... was in the way. Punk-rock tried to destroy the metal, but metal was much too strong. Techno... they tried to defile the metal, but Techno was proven wrong.

The metal. IT BLENDS.

Actually, pretty much all of those genres still exist and are doing fairly well for themselves.

Well, sans Grunge, but, eh.

Oh, come on, nobody listens to tenchno. It's all dubstep and party rocking and house music nowadays.tongue

Still, the Metal has proved that it is one of the best genres at harnessing The Power of Rock. As Dumbledore once said:

I maintain that rap is better at absorbing genre influences.

But, then, the only thing rap fans and metal fans can agree on is that rap-metal is terrible.

... *likes rap metal, especially in nu-metal, used to be fan of Linkin Park before their rapper became quiet and all one could hear was the whiner with daddy issues, probably has just committed a faux-pas of some sort*

   GET OUT   

no, but that's just sort of a joke.

I don't really like rap-rock except for Cage's brief foray into it, but whatever.

Holy shit Dr Who

There's one thing I need to understand. How is it that every song this guy touches becomes awesome in a very clear, tangible sense to me. I mean, I know it's objective as fuck, and usually all metal songs aren't automatically awesome for me. But this guy has never failed even once to make me feel completely mindblown. What is it that he does? What is it that the metal does to music, to the soul?

And Crust Punk has strong metal influences. I'm not sure what this thread is trying to prove.

I'm not trying to prove anything, dude, not everything is an argument, you know? I'm just celebrating the blending of metal with stuff, and this youtube guy in particular has made a specialty of doing metal covers of stuff that would normally have no business being in metal. If you've got examples of your own, please don't hesitate to provide them.

As for the paragraphs at the start, those were just the lyrics to the tongue-in-cheek song "The Metal" by Tenacious D:

Relax, dude! It's music! It's meant to be enjoyed, not fought over!

I was just curious what this was about.

Oh yes, Metal does blend. I do like some good Folk Metal or Symphonic Metal.

Oh yes, Metal Will Never Die http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uBRsr7AAVbo

I maintain that rap is better at absorbing genre influences.

I am intrigued by this, as I remain under the impression that rap is a primarily vocal + beat style of music. Whereas to me, metal's greatest strength is its near-limitless capacity for influence from other genres.

Yes but the thing is, the beat part can be pretty much anything.

It is possible to (and people have) rap over drums from any genre ranging from techno to metal to jazz. It's mostly just an ease of use thing.

But I would argue that's merely placing it "over the top", as it were. Whereas metal can adapt the actual structures of other forms of music (like jazz or classical, say), if that makes sense.

Is there such a thing as rap on japanese drums?

Cuz I'm pretty certain there's at least one rock song that uses them (I'm not sure it can be called metal, what do you experts say?)

Alternately, african drums would be nice.

I've been watching Sam Dunn's Metal Evoltuion, and that tune is in my head.

Handle: Given that Japan is the third highest consumer of hip-hop music after the United States and Germany, I would be far more shocked if someone hadn't done that.

I'm not sure if the original SHA LA HED SHA LA theme was anything close to metal (it was pretty epic), but this shit will blow your mind

QUICK! SOMEONE SLAP IT ON THE OPENING CREDITS!

I love to listen to classical music arranged/performed in style of metal, on guitar, possibly with drums...

And metal played with classical instruments, in style of metal OR classical music :3

That's kind of Powerglove's thing.

Their Batman one is the best of theirs, I think.
