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.

    "Metal elitists" sounds like "feces experts" for me. "Metal" and "elite" are two completely incompatible words.

    It's always a pleasure to watch the cockfights between metal elitists and their butthurt-driven opponents.

    "And can a groove metal fan tell me 20 groove bands, no, why?" I could tell even more than 20, but I won't do it for you because you don't deserve this. And I don't need any "respect" from dirty long-haired losers who talk shit about things they don't understand in the internet on a regular basis but suck at everything IRL.

    Only Exhorder, the founder of the genre, made 2 good groove albums, else fucking sucks. Pantera did nothing, they were just like swiching genres every 10 years.

    Thrash wasnt junk you fucking idiot, and groove didnt kill thrash, nobody is telling it did, the only thing we hate is that they "made" nu metal. And can a groove metal fan tell me 20 groove bands, no, why? Because they dont exist. And Selptura after Chaos A.D sucks. Have enought of fucking buthurt posers like Critical Switch, they just realize nobody respects their genre and then they need to bash on other more popular ones.
