How many genres of Metal are there?

Post by Hallow »

I was pondering this for some time. There is many different genres of metal and I'd like to know what they all are. Of course, there are the ones everybody knows about, such as Heavy Metal, but then there are some that only a niche of people know about, such as Symphonic Metal and Neo-classical Metal. Then there are the types that are are mix, such as Rhapsody of Fire (my favorite band), which can have things like Symphonic Power Metal.
What types do you know about?

Have fun....

I personally don't care about sub-genres and typically list any type of metal as Metal....

He has a point but if you want good music try "Black Label Society" they are metal....that is all.

There needs to be more Symphonic Power Metal bands. Like Rhapsody of Fire.

Modern stoner metal is great, check out bands like Kyuss, early Queens of the stone age, Fu Manchu, Orange Goblin, Unida, electric Wizard etc...

But dive back to the 70s for the earlier aspects of stoner.

Then again stoner is in aspect itself, not many bands and musicians want to pigeon hole themselves.

Kyuss?? The only Kyuss I know is from Dungeons & Dragons. His titles include: The Wormgod, the Bonemaster, the Herald of the Age of Worms
His portfolio includes: Creation and Mastery of the Undead
