Sadly, that's true.  But I HAVE heard from other Europeans that they still get harrassed for listening to Metal.  So maybe it's STILL true for Europe, it's just not as obvious as it is in the US.

Also, Metal IS more acceptable here in the US, provided you listen to our crappy metal, that is.  Honestly, the US metal scene disgusts me.  The best metal comes from Europe.

Yes, its' true, people do get harrassed by Heavy Metal music in Europe.But they don't combine devil with Heavy Metal -as far as i know and at least in Greece.In Greece they used to be offended more with the outfit than with the music...and the outfit has changed, it's not as radical as it used to be.Things changed a lot...

At least not in London. Yesterday night I was walking down the Baker Street, it was almost empty, and there was a group of guys coming towards me, and just few steps before me one of them raised his hand and made the "devil's sign" and yelled "Gothic baby, rock on!"... Yep, I looked around. Nobody there. I thought about it for some minutes, and decided to take it as a compliment ;)

Numetal is more acceptable?;) Here those little suckers get killed by the true evil metalheads ;) (Probably they just get laughed at...)

You're so right! Almost... The best metal comes from NORTH europe ;)

But in the US, while we have some good bands, we mostly have crap.  ALSO, most metalheads in the US don't listen to the bands Tex listed.  The ones that do, find their way to forums like this.

Let me tell you what's popular here in the US if you're a metalhead:
Slipknot
Mudvayne
KoRn
Evanescence
Adema
3 Doors Down
Mushroomhead
Trapt
The Used
System of a Down (I actually like them)
Disturbed (again, one I actually like)
Rob Zombie (also like)
Marilyn Manson
Orgy
Drowning Pool
Godsmack
Limp Bizkit
Linkin Park
Chevelle
Taproot
Kid Rock
And many others, but I won't list all of them here.  Full list can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Nu_metal_musical_groups

With a few exceptions, most nu-metal is trite, boring, and lacks any kind of discernable skill.  They ignore the guitar, using it almost purely as a rythem instrument, and it's almost always in drop-D.  They abuse/over-use the bass.  Now, I love bass.  Alot.  But not to the extent that these bands feel the need to use it.  Slap-style comes in handy, but there is such a thing as "too much."

The musicians with any skill in nu-metal are the drummers and the bassists, due to the overly-needy desire to sound "Badass" or in some cases "Evil."  Whereas in bands like Falconer, Nightwish, HammerFall, etc...everyone in the band has to be skilled because every instrument is treated as important. And as stated earlier, while we do have good bands here in the US, you'd be suprised just how often our metalheads harrass others for listening to bands that are not nu-metal.

But it's still definitely Europe, though it tends to prove the theory that it's just the "51st state" of the US. (Anyone willing to guess of which movie I'm thinking right now? ;) )

Zitat von: "Mas"

It's not "people" who think so, it's been Virvatuli who wrote so - and added an irony tag, which means "I didn't (completely/exactly) mean what I wrote". No need to take that statement so seriously :)

Zitat von: "Mas"

Right. That's why some people will for sure say that the best metal comes from the real Northern parts of Europe. Some of the best extreme metal indeed comes from there after all. It's their opinion, nothing more and nothing less, and it's just as justified as your sympathy for certain new metal or non-metal bands.

Yes AoP i take discussion about sorts of Metal serious, :wink:  its not because someone post a message here but there a lots of discussion at Metal forums about Nu metal. I dont think its fair. Even a lot of Death Metal heads are saying that Power metal is gay, i am sorry but music is still music and very very personaly. I listen all kinds of Metal, of course i have my favorites wich are the most of them are Power metal bands. I also think there is someting like a new Hype upcomming in the Metal Scene, the europe hype, well ok europe have good bands and they are populair at the moment but that doesnt mean there is lots of other good music in the US and even in Brasil or Japan.
 :D
