A Metal Purist doesn't necessarily favor one genre of metal over another. They aren't like metal elitists.. The difference between a metal purist and a MetalHead is the fact that Metalheads will also allow core to be called Metal, where as a Metal Purist realizes the difference between the 2 separate genre's backgrounds. For instance core is a music genre fusing elements of hardcore punk and various forms of electronic music. Where as Metal has its roots from blues rock and psychedelic rock. A Metal Purist realizes the difference between the 2 genres and will defend the Metal name against people who try to infuse the 2 genres. Hence the name PURE.
"Core is nothing like metal, I am a Metal-Purist."
