That's a huge part of why these guys only let the lesser known extreme metal bands into their little society they've created. Give me a reason the black dahlia murder can't be extreme metal when the only difference between them and other extreme bands is the fact that they cleaned up their music slightly/had a better recording budget and they actually have a fanbase.
They may be lesser known to you, the outsider, but to people within our society, the bands aren't as obscure as you think.

you got "dirty and uncompromising right," in other words, sounds like complete *** when put together. the black dahlia murder has the same base as incantation, morbid angel, and suffocation. and im sure some of the members even listen to them, and im sure they base some of their music off bands like that. the only reason its "gimmicky" is because they realized that bands like that sound like ****, so they need to clean it up and make it sound good. thus becoming less "underground."
if there were a clear spectrum of metal, with iron maiden or judas priest at the very lowest (per your example) im sure the black dahlia murder would be far enough in it to consider them "extreme" metal.
i dont listen to punk.
clearly you do not listen to punk, it was an analogy you failed to comprehend. I almost don't want to say anything further to you because everything you've just brought up has already been taken care of in that analogy.
metal sounds like complete *** to you because it doesn't resonate with you. That's fine, but instead of letting it be, you want it to sound safe and watered down so you can digest and understand it. If your posts are indicative of anything, it's that you don't "get it" you probably never will. It's just not for you champ.
here a little comparison:

just for the record, i totally understood that analogy. i know who both of those bands are and i have friends that listen to real punk i know that those bands are totally fake, got it, got the analogy, made me look like and *** hilarious ha.
lesser known to me, more known to you, the difference is BDM is known between both. i guarentee they have more fans, and theres nothing wrong with that. in fact morbid angel isnt even that underground to anyone who likes any sort of metal.
ill stick to my metal you guys stick to yours i guess. ill let it be now. agree to disagree on the whole situation i guess.
I am the one they call BEARCOAT
i've only just started experimenting with them, been trying to look a bit more into metal recently. not really black metal or the like. it's eh so far, probably just not really my genre. BUT I SHALL CONTINUE THE EXPEDITION.
edit: i do kind of like this though
Yeah we came to blow your system
the idiot to well-informed person ratio in this thread is ridiculous. so many people in here who just pull **** out of their ***** and presenting them as if they are hard facts. I read all the pages and counted so many times where all these *******es who have contradicted themselves because they aren't informed. get informed.
