    I know that it's a guitar tab, my point being is that a tab is only a composition and really doesn't give any insight to an artist's skill at playing a musical instrument.

    The music was written by the artist, and recorded, played live. I'd say that means he can fucking play it.

    If practise makes perfect, and no body's perfect, why practise?

    That's almost halfway true, if you play guitar try to play that riff. It's not as easy as it looks, although you are correct. Sheet music is much more accurate.

    Yet stating that all metal is cookie monster is ridiculous. Mikael Akerfeldt is the highest range vocalist I've ever came across in a metal type environment, and traditional metal I believe is quite garbage unless it's mainly american thrash (testament, old metallica, sepultura.) a lot of finnish and swedish bands are quite talented, and incredibly complex as far as music goes. Quite a few bands fail in the vocals category, yet if you haven't seen my 1st page on this thread about the bands I mention, then you'll understand what I'm talking about.

    Once you get into vocalists that can actually growl (and understand what the words mean, definately possible) the aggression in this type of music becomes unmatched. Dual harmony guitars with thought provoking vocals, it takes time. I will bet you money that you won't go back once you give it a shot, you close minded people.

    Yeah, when most people say metal they don't even mean metal. At least those actually are metal, and excellent bands on top of that. Pity about Tarja leaving Nightwish though. The new singer simply can't compare.

    Even to the people who don't believe me:

    The Drapery Falls

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaNOT2sQ0ew
    The Ghost of Perdition

    and just to show you their range,

    A Fair Judgement

    take it for what you will, but wow. I used to hate growling until I heard quite a few of these bands, can't ever stop listening now. My opinion of course, but after every song (which is completely, and entirely different from them) they top the list for me of greatness. Opeth's singer completely destroys the barrier in what people should think about music like this though. Give this type of music a chance you already-metal fans. It's completely worth it.

    If you can't appreciate the skill it takes to play metal and how intricate and detailed it sounds -59 intelligence

    If you actually think its just a collection of loud pointless noises, well, as Bruce Dickinson has said, don't listen to it if you don't want to die of a heart attack. I doubt you've heard anything metal sides "Let the bodies hit the floor" or other crappy mainstream songs like that. If you can even call that metal.

    Your description doesn't fit any of the most popular metal bands; all having varying vocal pitches and highly skilled instrumentalists.

    I agree that most of the mainstream "insert genre here" groups suck balls, most of the time the lesser known musical groups own.

    Yes true, but even largely popular metal bands are awesome, but not known to mainstream society, example; Amon Amarth.
