Groove metal

Groove metal is a subgenre of thrash metal which essentially takes the intensity and sonic qualities of thrash metal and plays it at mid tempo, only making occasional forays into fast tempo. It features heavy, strong angry vocals usually influenced by hardcore punk and sometimes death metal, deep, heavy often downtuned bass lines, tough, strong and very heavy beats, down tuned guitars playing heavy, chugging, groovy-like riffs and typical heavy metal solos.

    Don't understand the negativity about genre labeling. That's like saying you don't need labels for the food you buy. I don't want glam metal recommendations when i want more power metal suggestions (or whatever subgenre of metal you're into). Some bands might not have a defined style and sometimes gets lumped with whatever genre and there's always people like me who make mistakes when labeling a band, but it's a learning process like anything else.

    People who reject genre labels are morons.

    This tag is criminally underrated. I mean, for example, Soulfly doesn't even have it in the top 5 even playing it the most period of career - of course not amount of listens, it's OK and even a bit overrated comparing to something else.

    @Hailchthulhu666: of course everything has a label... that doesn't mean you have to accept it ;)

    @Kerast Everything has a label including art such as realism or surrealism, so of course music would have labels (genres) too.

    fuck "true or false" metal tags, tags are for products not for art, tags are for teenagers who seek for identity/tribe/trend ... be yourself, if you like it : it's TRUE. Period.

    Hey I started a new group for music fanatics, the focus is going to be different than the ExMF and the frosty paradigm. It's a bit of an experiment but if a bunch of people get in it could be cool. Join if you are interested. I want this group to become a center for music discussion on Lastfm (even though it's metal centered, other genres are more than welcome to be discussed.) Cheers!
