First off: It's not a genre if it has one fucking band.

A term coined by slightly above-average gothic rock band HIM to make them seem more edgy to the 12 year olds who listen to them because Ville Valo has a pretty face. It has none of the common elements of classic metal, such as guitar oriented songs, technical solos with heavy blues influence, complicated drum tempos, their lyrics aren't even as dark as Black Sabbath's.
Love metal =/= metal. The only reason it's gained any recognition is because that douchebag Bam Margeraisn't creative enough to think of his own symbol to put in every room of his house.

NOT a genre because it has only ONE band in it! A shitty band at that! HIM is awful enough as they are and dont deserve their own genre. Its simply a name for a poser goth/emo bad. Oh and the "heartagram" FUCK YOU the pentagram repreasents satan (or man from a biblical point of view) and the heartagram repreasents nothing but a desperate attempt to kill metal. Love-metal does not deserve to be a genre.
HIM fan: Hey do you like metal
Metalhead: ya
HIM fan: Do you like love metal?

*suddenly the metalhead slices the HIM fan's throught open*

A horrible excuse for HIM fans to spam up metal boards. Seriously, "LOVE METAL?!" what the fuck?! Thats like calling "My Chemical Romance" Love Rock! You cant get away with bullshit genres that don't even sound like the actual genre you're trying to modify!
Love Metal is a load of bullshit and anyone that thinks it's a genre has no brain.
