Fighting amongst friends
Recently in the metal music scene there has been a very huge, redundant debate about sub genres. It's been a vocal battle about "true metal" and "false metal." As a fan of many bands that are criticized by these keyboard warriors i've grown very tired of it. The old-gen ridicules new-gen, death metal attacking deathcore, thrash attacking nu-metal and so on and so forth. These people are picking apart metal and categorizing genres to be shitty and gay. But all in all metal is metal and we already look bad with some of the publicity metal gets, these people arguing over their own genre being adapted and changed up are only defiling themselves. United we stand, divided we fall, true metalheads realize this and simply take the higher ground and stop complaining. If you don't like it, deal with it for every insult you have about a certain band someone else out there could say just as much for your favorite band.
