    Of course, metal is an *ear orgasm*.

    Of course 'metal' isn't one thing and there is a range of artistry within the genre. It does contain some of the more virtuosic performing. I find it more interesting than quite a few other genres - especially the more commercially beholden ones. I'm not saying I appreciate everything labeled as 'metal', but there are some complex, artistic pieces within that genre.

    "Metal. Is it music?"

    No, not at all.

    For example, symphonic metal:

    Why everyone must analyze everything, why people just can't say - yes, it is, no it' isnt. One simple sentence.

    People must complicate everything. Is it some kind of overly-rationalistic-society syndrome. New diagnosis for DSM.


    Yes, metal is music.

    This is the one of the reason why:

    Because that wouldn't encourage conversation. I can see why some might consider metal, especially death metal, to simply be noise and therefore no valid form of music. It often lacks rhythm and other stuff that makes music enjoyable for a lot of people.

    But, you experience music through the heart, conversation based on argument kills all of the joy and pleasure.

    Just say, i like it, i dont like it. I like because...'it touches my heart like anything before...'couse that's the story of my life...etc.

    I dont like it...couse...it's fake, not from the heart, author try to mimic some geniune sensibility from original artist, etc...I dunno.

    But that isn't what this thread is about.

    Metal is music anyway, since any kind of arranged sounds into patterns is considered music.

    It's harsh and noisy and often lacks clean singing, but I've never heard death metal that didn't have rhythm. It's not a rhythm that's typically considered danceable (unless you're slam dancing, but that's just people crashing their bodies into each other) but lack of rhythm is more typically a characteristic of ambient and drone music. I get the point you were making, tho, and I agreed with what you said about any sound intended to be music can be sorted under that label.

    Whatever is the music, you've got to learn how to listen to it before being really able to enjoy it.
