    Discussing sub genres is so goddamn boring to read/listen to. Is it enjoyable to write and speak? Who cares?

    the only people who tag it with "metal" are the ones whose first experience with anything metal-related was AA. otherwise, they're widely accepted as metalcore. and i honestly don't think sour was talking solely about "brutality".

    "I honestly don't get this massive and constant urge that people get to have to certify these guys as not metal in it's entirety. They're not, and why should brutality levels matter anyway?" @soursaurus; It's mostly because there are people out there who think AA is metal. The tags are a dead giveaway too. Not all metal has brutality levels, traditional metal didn't start off that way. Death, thrash, and black metal started with the more aggressive/brutality levels. Power, glam, folk (some, if any) and heavy metal are more focused on the melodies and compositions (though i don't listen to glam so i can't say for sure with that one).

    I honestly don't get this massive and constant urge that people get to have to certify these guys as not metal in it's entirety. They're not, and why should brutality levels matter anyway? So they're not the heaviest metal band and I love them for that, as many people do. c: Rock on! Or should I say, "semi" rock on. P;

    Yeah like BOTDF... Lots of bands use breakdowns and easy moves in music and they don´t get labeled for the worst band.

    Don't know how these guys got labeled as the worst band ever. Don't get me wrong, it's not really my thing but there are bands that are way worse than these guys.
