the bands that scream are actually called death metal
Ok, death metal is most of the screaming bands but some heavy metal bands scream too.

Metal and heavy metal are the same thing.

yes they are. when someone says they listen to metal they are saying heavy metal, death metal, goth metal, speed metal etc are just sub-genre of heavy metal. i've been listening to metal since i was 6 so arguing is futile.

According to two of my friends metal and heavy metal are not the same thing. But I do get what you mean. But I still don't see the bands I listen to as Heavy Metal, they are softer than that but they are not rock.

Trust me they are. Metal is just a lazy way of saying "heavy metal"... ive been a metalhead since I was 13 and im almost 21 now so I know what I'm talking about. I don't say im a heavymetalhead or a deathmetalhead...I just say im a metalhead.

But I'm just being picky because I'm pratically a metalguru. lol. So don't take it personally Kitty.

And Aoi.. you took the words right out of my mouth.

you know.. one of your best friends even said that metal and heavy metal are not the same. hmmm lets see. Disturbed is not heavy metal, its metal, Adema is not heavy metal, its metal. Do I have to name more? and I've been listening to metal for about a year longer than you have. I know the stuff I listen to is not Heavy Metal or Death metal or whatever else there is. Most of the music I listen to is either rock or metal.

like who? and to me its the same. by the way, just because you've listened to it a year longer doesn't mean you know all the bands that I do. Heavy and metal are the same. Death and heavy are not. I know you don't listen to death but I do. Let's just agree to disagree and be done with it. I'm too tired to argue anyway and its pointless.

My fav genres are anything metal except black metal cause I notice more of the satanic bands are part of that genre and that is not my thing. There is a couple exceptions within black metal but at the moment I can not remember.

And I love rock..except like oldies. And when I mean oldies i mean anything like 50s-70s but again theres exceptions here and there for me.

Oh and I like some pop...yes yes I like pop. Some of its catchy and fun to dance to.

I HATE RAP AND COUNTRY!!! UGH MAKES ME WANT TO VOMIT!!!

I don't know what's worse country music or when my dad sings to it!!! He makes me want to break the radio when I'm in the car with him!!! ](*,) :twitch:

Oh and I also love Christian rock and metal. ^^ more the metal then the rock cause Christian rock can be too soft sometimes.

lol. But seriously saying heavy metal and metal are the same is like saying rock and punk rock are the same. So you are wrong.
I love country, pop, alternative, oldies, rock, electronic, electronica, dance, industrial, the only rap I like is Eminem, and some hip-hop. I don't like to argue either but when someone says something and I know their wrong then I am gonna show them right.

I never said anything about knowing all the bands you do. It doesn't mean the metal and heavy metal are the same either. I don't listen to all the bands you listen to because I hate most of it.

i have been listening to metal for 19 years (i'm 25) so don't give me that you've been listening to it longer. and my father has been listening to metal for over 30 years and he even says metal is heavy metal. My husband has also been listing to metal for 19 years and he also says metal is just short for heavy metal.

Disturbed is an American rock band from Chicago, Illinois, formed in 1996 when musicians Dan Donegan, Steve "Fuzz" Kmak, and Mike Wengren hired David Draiman as their singer.
Adema formed as a five-piece, rock band from Bakersfield, California consisting of lead singer Mark Chavez, guitarists Tim Fluckey and Mike Ransom, bassist Dave DeRoo, and drummer Kris Kohls

Except the difference is I do know what I'm talking about.
I never said anything about my friend listening to it longer and not to be mean but you all are stupid. Like I said before saying Metal and Heavy Metal are the same thing is like saying Rock and Punk rock are the same. Ok so what is KoRn then? Rock? No oh wait this is what Wiki says "Korn is an American metal band formed in Bakersfield, California, in 1993."

But anyway I'm not going to fight about this anymore because I know I'm right and there is no sense trying to get you guys to actually figure out the truth. It's starting to give me a headache.

So anyway, Amy whats wrong with country?! =P

no you don't, music is my life....ask anyone who's had a conversation with me, i shove music at them every time they talk to me. I don't do anything without music. I follow music like preppy blonds follow fashion. you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about and you continue to argue the point.

Metal is another name for Heavy Metal. It's a subgenre of rock.

As far as I know metal and heavy metal like Aoi and Shining said are the same, I've never known them to be different.

Kitty, do yourself a favor and stop typing.
You may be right in your own little world, but in the rest of the world, you are not.
Unlike others though, I'm providing sources.

A blog about the history of metal
A nice VH1 show of what Heavy metal is. Q and A.
A masters thesis on the history of heavy metal
About.com's 101 on Metal.

After reading those, and watching, you should realize that Meavy Metal and Metal are the same thing. Heavy metal is abbreviated as metal the same as Rhythm and blues is abbreviated R&B
