What Makes Metal Appealing?

My friend and I discuss this all the time. I'll be driving and put on thrash/deathcore/whatever and he will say he doesn't know how anyone can find it even remotely listenable. I don't really enjoy the kind of music he likes but a lot of people do. I'll listen to anything, I just get on kicks where I like a certain genre, like anyone does.

I guess this could be expressed for any genre, but I tell him that metal (in the generic sense, not trying to break down genres), to me, kind of evokes a primal, powerful feeling. It makes me want to kick babies and beat up old women, I don't think any other genre brings out such raw emotion. It's not anger, more like power. It makes me feel good.

Again you could say that for any genre, but I didn't know if anyone thought similar, since metal is one of those love/hate genres for the most part.

I'm not even down for metal these days. I went through a big metal phase, but now I see these pictures of metal bands and it looks like they're trying wayyy too hard to fit into their genre. Long hair, big beards, all black. It's not appealing anymore.

But when I did listen to metal, it was because it was high energetic and ****ing bad ***. Hearing the double bass kicking would make my bones rattle, especially if you saw them at a show. I remember seeing Lamb of God once and it was ****ing EPIC how hard that show was. Now-a-days, I cant listen to it without thinking the bands are all trying WAYYY too hard to be metal. Like with DJs, no one cares what you look like or dress like. Wear a t-shirt and jeans, a button up, whatever. But with metal, BLACK EVERYTHING! BLACK BASS! BLACK DRUMS! BLACK GUITAR! You have the guy that occasionally wears different colors, but other than that, BLACK BLACK BLACK! No more for me.

It was fun while it lasted, but these days I enjoy listening to music that doesn't sound like the vocalist is coughing his lungs out. Except The Devil Wears Prada, I still love that band to this day (even though they're hardcore and not metal by any means).

When you see it from an outside perspective, metal looks ridiculous. Obviously looking at it from the inside it doesn't look so bad. Like, when I didn't like electro I thought it was a joke. Looking at pictures of DJs and stuff, I thought they were ridiculous standing on stage. Now I love it, and couldn't think of it any differently.

It's all perspective, yo.

That was almost 7 years ago, it's been a minute. I don't know what you guys consider metal anymore; I'm not up to date with any of the bands these days since I don't listen to the stuff anymore.

Dethklok is the best metal band out there right now. That's right, fake metal is real metal.
