I'm told a lot of the bands I listen to that I think of as metal are really "rock". But I don't give a crap because they rule anyway.

My favorite metal bands...

Alice Cooper
Black Label Society
Dog Fashion Disco
Down
Elvenking
Falconer
The Hellacopters
Lacuna Coil
Machine Head (older stuff only)
Metallica
Monster Magnet
Murder City Devils
Orange Goblin
Savatage
Sonata Arctica
Revielle
Rob Zombie
Temple of the Dog
Trans-Siberian Orchestra

I'm currently looking into more symphonic metal and stoner rock. My favorite bands of the above are Savatage, Orange Goblin, Monster Magnet and my favorite of all of em, Dog Fashion Disco. Though I didn't like Mr. Bungle for some reason.

I forgot that Nightwish was metal, but I really don't see how they can be considered metal in any sense. No (noticable) distortion guitar, no screaming or distorted vocals, and definitely no drugs involved. Looking at the stereotypes for metal bands, I don't see how Nightwish could be one. Maybe it's something about the lyrics?

You don't really need that stuff to be considered metal. Nightwish are certainly Power Metal, and very cheesy power metal at that. Their main novelty and asset is the wonderfully throaty Tarja.

She was the identity of the band. Kicking her out would be as effective as disbanning the band.

All the stuff I listen to has been mentioned, and I also have no idea what "metal" is and how you distinguish it from something else and all the other sub-metal classes. :roll: organisation is only good if you understand the classes.. and they're universally accepted.
