"Manowar waged open verbal, and occasionally physical, warfare upon those who could not genuinely play their instruments or who were half hearted in embracing the true spirit of their beloved heavy metal"
-Manowar: Anthology. Inset by Dave Ling.
garbage. music at its worst. Nu-metal.
disgrace to music. disgrace to mankind.
unfortunately MetallicA decided to sell out to this shit, and they dont make the good shit that they used too. its sad but true.
MetallibangeR: fuck no, lets listen to manowar, or slayer, or (early) metallica shit, or fuckin ozzy, you poser ass douche fuck.
Sugar coated and sappy, polished and clean, with emphasis on pop like structures, a marketable image, and a general aura of NOT being "devil music".
true metal, in it's various forms (most notably pure/power metal & deathmetal) has remained unscathed by the passing trends of various false metals, and will continue to thrive via integrity, devotion, passion and sincerity not found in any false metal acts!
in the 90's it was Limp Bisquit, Korn, and Coal Chamber
in the 00's it was all of those "metalcore" and "screamo" bands.
who knows what pitiful False Metal trend is next?
Unlike what many of the other people here have said, false metal is NOT simply any band that you don't like. If I didn't like Iron Maiden (and just for the record I DO like them), does that give me the right to say they are false metal? No! And you know why? Because their music DOES come from the heart, and the performers DO have a strong passion for it.
It's the same with many other bands out there. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it is false metal, even though it's true that many bands out there whose music DOES suck do play false metal.
Real metal head: No, that's called false metal or poser music. Go back to hot topic.
