unfair sa ibang rock genres if genre-specific ang board allotment sa PM; kukulangin din tayo sa bandwidth to cater to all if ever. You could start a Metal "Thread" sa Rock Forums instead though.
Thank you sir for that information and I understand what you mean about the bandwidth.
I just have my two cents though:
- Metal is not a sub genre of rock. Metal is a genre of its own. I wouldn't call dying fetus or cannibal corpse or necrophagist rock bands, they are metal bands.
- Metal is a genre evolved from rock and has generated its own identity as a genre itself and sub genres.
Rock sub-genres > classic rock/glam rock, punk rock, acid rock, hard rock, grunge, etc..
Metal sub-genres > death metal, technical death metal, djent/math metal, black metal, metalcore, deathcore, doom metal, etc..
So the statement said about the being unfair of a metal thread to other rock genres (for me) is not correct. But if you make another separate thread for say "acid rock", then that would be unfair to other rock (sub) genres.
And another thing, the "The Music Forums" board IS actually a genre-specific section of PM. Thus the thread names/board allotments are like "Pop", "The Rock Music Forums", "Jazz and Blues Cafe", "Classical", "Soul", etc., which separates these threads by the type of the "genre" to be discussed under each thread..
But if the "issue" will be bandwidth, maybe we can call the thread "Rock/Metal" thread instead..
Again, just my opinions. Thanks!
