Then what's the difference? Every screamo song I've ever seen was considered to be metal. I'm aware that they're different, but how are they as different as you make it seem?

That wasn't sarcasm, by the way. Legitimate question.

Here's a couple of explanations on metal vocal styles:

You're probably mostly thinking of all that metalcore/deathcore emo-influenced crap they play on the radio.

For the record, most metalheads don't consider those to be real metal.

Metal is screamo.
Now bring me the furs of three baby seals! >: D

As a dude who likes alternative and punk rock, I'm going to say that metal isn't so bad.

I hadn't even thought to look it up. I just checked five or so different sources and every one was different. :? Some say that metal has no screaming and screamo only screaming, others claim that it's based on the lyrics. There were more than that, but I can't remember them right now.

Considering I've been up since before it was light out, I'm tired and don't care enough at the moment to look into this much. I'll try to remember to do it tomorrow, when I'm completely awake. x;

I used to not like metal. It's growing on me, though. c;

Post-hardcore, melodic metalcore, punk rock, alternative, and some indie rock are my favorites.

But there are WAY too many sub-genres for rock/metal.

Me too Jess, I really wasn't a fan of metal or rock at all. Then I started listening to it because of my friend and now I'm a bigger metal fan than him

And yes Delta, there's a ton of sub-genres for rock @_@

Metal is mostly an instrumental based genre, but vocals range from anywhere between clean singing to deep growling to dramatic tenors to mid-to-high pitched shrieks or any combination of the sort. Black metal tends to be the closest to anything resembling "screaming", but it's not so much screaming as it is just harsh high-pitched vocals.

But like I said, it's an instrumental genre. No matter what the style, the vocals are simply just another instrument to people like me. The aggression within the instrumentation is its main attraction.

Also, in case anyone's interested, I have list of metal album recommendations that I've been passing around, encompassing a variety of subgenres. If anyone's interested, just ask and I'll PM the list.

I usually listen to Classic Rock and a few more modern songs, but not a lot. I'm not into many newer genres.

Okay, that makes more sense. x:

@Jz
I actually stumbled upon a lot of the music I like with an online radio. I didn't like any metal before then. I'm actually listening to a metal song right now, though haha.

I listen to a whole lot of the stuff, so I don't tend to pick absolute favorites.

I'm currently listening to a symphonic black metal band called Emperor.

Other bands I've been listening to lately are:

Sepultura, Pantera, Machine Head, Slayer, Metallica, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Dark Tranquility, Bolt Thrower, Wolves In The Throne Room, Drudkh, Mayhem, Immortal, Dream Theater, Exhorder, Meshuggah, Nevermore, Saint Vitus, Candlemass, Prostitute, and Eluveitie.

Number of the Beast and Powerslave are both terrific albums.

Like I said, if anyone wants a list of album/band recommendations, just ask. I have it stored on my PC Notepad.

I like pretty much any rock genre out there, especially alternative rock and heavy metal. I'm more of a fan of recent works (from 2000 onwards) but I like a handful of songs from back in the 70s and 80s, such as Metallica's Master of Puppets and Iron Maiden's The Number of the Beast.

Speaking of Iron Maiden, that reminds me of a Wii homebrew game I recently downloaded:

I can start off a recommendation here with an excellent heavy/progressive metal classic:

Queensryche's OPERATION MINDCRIME

Fantastic album. Tells a nice story, too.

Hmm, metal huh? I don't listen to this genre of music. It's one of my least favourite genres, unfortunately. :/ I like listening to pop, rock, classical, jazz.....well, about everything else except metal.

I really only specifically dislike rap and country. The rest is tolerable or I like it. x:

I'm not a fan of country or rap, or metal or dubstep. However, Rodeo Song is the ONLY country song I actually like.

I once made a tie-die shirt for myself back in camp a few years ago. I still have it too.

For me I enjoy almost any genre as long as I enjoy the song or artist. For the most part I have one artist from each genre that I don't mind listening to.

That said a lot of people say they dislike rap and country. I kind of wonder if they give it more of a shot than they do. There is a wide variety in at least the latter I've realized. Some of it I really enjoy and others I can't stand.
