I'm not too familiar as to what constitutes something as metal, based on what i've heard(on the radio and shit), i'd say metal is the perfect style of music for people who can't sing or play instruments, of course that's only based on my limited knowledge of metal. There are metal bands i like, Metallica for one, and i mean their old shit, although i do like their newer stuff(not st.anger), Pantera is a good band, uh shit, i guess Slipknot even though they suck, Mushroomhead(even though they suck), hmm would Avenged Sevenfold be considered as metal, if so then them too.
well, i guess with the limited knowledge u have on metal (hearing it on the radio) you would say that. however, saying that metal bands can't play instruments very well, i have to disagree with you on that one. i agree with you on the singing in certain cases though. Although, when it comes to skill with instruments, metal bands play instruments better (some, way better) than most bands you hear on the radio today. all the alternative and punk bands sound the same, Nickelback, Our lady peace, default, simple plan, three days grace...i could go on. if all you've heard of metal is metallica, avenged sevenfold (a mix of punk and metal by the way) and pantera, then go and check out bands like Death, Edguy, Iced Earth, Dimmu Borgir, and Slayer. you'll definitely change your mind after hearing some of the kick ass guitar riffs and solos these bands produce.
I have been listening to Metal for about a year now, some of my favorite bands are:
