    [Music] Map of Metal

    http://www.mapofmetal.com

    No map of Metal would be complete without a completely and totally unnecessary umlaut.
    Admittedly, I'm not much of a metal guy.. but this is some pretty badass stuff right here lol

    This is pretty awesome, and does not deserve to drop off the front page yet.

    This should be stickied to avoid every discussion on what people's opinion of what is metal and what isnt.

    This should be kept on front page, and I agree, stickied.

    Hahaha wow I didn't know people would feel so strongly about my little find

    Oh dang, I looked through it again and just noticed that they included Death in this. Death is the best band to only record 7 songs EVER.

    I disagree, the bands listed there are some of the most famous ones of their respective sub genre.

    I 100% sure that they recorded way more than 7 songs, they have 7 albums + 2 live albums and tonnes of demos.

    Yeah, I thought the same thing. I hope whoever made this site expands on each genre a bit more. Seriously, no mention of Jason Becker in neo-classical, or at least Symphony X? I was surprised by how diverse the subgenres were (didn't think they'd include Djent) and I thought the placement was pretty cool.

    I felt that some bands are in the wrong places. Well, not entirely wrong, but they'd fit better in other areas. But alas, one man's opinion on such a thing is probably why this was even made. :<

    Still, I think this is very fucking neat. Major props to whoever made this.

    Death? The band from Detroit in the early 70s who totally threw Motown in a loop because they were like YOU'RE BLACK BUT YOU'RE PLAYING WHITE MUSIC SO WE CAN'T MARKET YOU! so the band moved to Vermont and became a reggae band?

    I have a feeling we are talking about two different things. They only have one album out with 7 demos from the 70s. In the map under garage rock look up Keep On Knocking.

    Yeah, I think we are describing 2 different bands. :P I was talking about "Death": the band that was one of the largest influences on the creation of death metal and thought of by many as the first real death metal band.

    lol Yeh, a quick Google search reveals that there are two bands named Death, one being a metal from Florida and the other being one of the first punk bands

    Cheers for this post. Entertaining and educational!

    I may be stupid or blind, but I can't find DIO. Shouldn't he be Medieval metal?

  17. #17
    Wtf is Medieval Metal? Stop making up lame genre names. U will find Dio under Heavy Metal (the one that the marker is on when u load the map)

    He didn't make up the genre dude, it's up there on the map.. It is the kind of metal where they play the "grandpas guitars."

    Which is just another subgenre of Folk Metal.

    The point was that he was reffering to Dio as Medieval Metal, which is just stupid
