For the most part it' not bad, but no crossover (could be included in just thrash) and speaking of thrash, CoB is thrash?


Sort of a confusing chart too.


Sorry if this has been posted before.

I believe this is from the Metal:A Headbangers Journey

Where is DOOM METAL?!!?!

Please make the lines thicker. It's hard to see which genre is connected to what.

Doom metal is pretty much represented by the stoner metal box. Wrong genre, though. Most of those bands ARE traditional doom.

Edit the chart...it's stretching the screen.

It's been discussed, twice, in depth. I'll leave this thread open for discussion with the hope that it doesn't turn into a "OMG THIS IS SO STUPID!!!111" thread.

My thoughts...this chart fails on several levels. "Over Kill" and "Dream Theatre" loses credibility immediately.

Just throwing the disclaimer out there.

Cradle of Filth is Norwegian Black Metal? Sure.

"Doom metal" obviously doesn't exist, only stoner and goth metal do, apparently.

I think we've already been through this chart many, many times and the general board consensus is that it sucks and Sam Dunn has no fucking clue what he's talking about and should be labeled an enemy of metal.

That diagram is full of shit; "Candlemass stoner metal", "DRI and SOD metalcore"? Half of the genres mentioned are not even metal.

Invoked, you're actually right. This has been discussed several times, including the links I provided. Nothing new can come out of this topic.
