Genres don't account for the subjective experience.A genre is defined by the similarities in the sound. The things similar about death metal that make it death metal, I dislike.
What is it with you people..
I'm not a metalhead. I just happen to listen to death metal. So it wouldn't benefit your reasoning to group me with everyone else.What is it with you people and disliking labels? I hate people who dislike labels. I call my cup a "cup" because that's what it is. Sure, labels may be used poorly or wrongly by ignorant jerks, but that doesn't mean they're innately bad or in any way inaccurate.
Opinions, people have them.I should have stated earlier that I was saying what I said tongue in cheek. While it is actually my tastes, I don't presume anyone should share my tastes. Death Metal sucks because it's a wall of noise with no melody. And I just listened to a bunch of songs on that list of supposedly good songs. Our tastes are different. I'm not going to judge an entire genre by the few songs which people claim are good (yet I've been entirely unable to find), because I'd rather judge the genre as a genre. I then use that understanding of the genre to determine if I'd rather waste time listening to it or doing something else. That's how humans work.
