TRUE Metal is the most under appreciated style of music today. There are many good, TRUE, metal bands that exist. However, shit like Slipknot, Korn, System of a Down, and (recent) Cradle of Filth have given this genre a bad name in the mainstream. Thus, all the good bands were forced to remain obscure. This is one thing that seperates the TRUE metalheads, from the posers. The posers are the stupid kids who claim to be metalheads, yet listen to nothing but slipknot while claiming to be "Hardcore". The TRUE metal fans are the ones who appreciate bands that are not well known to the media whores that MTV controls. TRUE metal fans and TRUE metal bands are the 2 last remaining hopes of the genre.

1. A heavier genre of music, usually containing lots of distortion, shredy riffs and solos, men with hair down to their knees, and sometimes a giraffe. More modern styles have incorporated breakdowns to give it a more brutal edge to the sound. These breakdown should not be confused with the Mariah Carry type of breakdown.

2. A type of elementary substance, many of which are characterized by opacity, ductility, conductivity, and a unique luster when freshly fractured. Can be found in the solid and liquid forms depending on its temperature.

3. Michael Andrew Pardy

2. A genre of music that grew out of rock. Its listeners, called metalheads, are often stereotyped incorrectly, as is the music itself.

Metal is a genre based off of originality and technicality. It is extremely diverse ranging from bands such as Pain Of Salvation to Decapitated.
