Believe it or not, properly screaming/growling/whatever such that the vocalist doesn't damage his voice is somewhat difficult. It may not sound good to you, possibly because you're simply not used to it (I used to hate those vocals myself,) but that doesn't make it bad.

Once again, there's no point to us arguing this. It's like arguing religion, there's no right answer. You all are probably the same people who think rap is just "monkeys making noise".

I know I don't feel that way about rap. I don't personally like it but respect it much of the time. I doubt most of us hate rap either.

I cant agree with any of that. I listen to a lot of music with no vocals or foreign vocals, and I cant understand why some people need understandable vocals or vocals at all in a song to enjoy it. I find the reasoning a lot of people give as to why they need vocals very shallow or just silly. For example, these people seem to be enjoying this instrumental a lot at this concert.

I dont see what youre getting at other than saying the obvious

I have no idea what you are on about + whats wrong with rapping?

You can argue this all day, there isn't one type of music that's better than another. People like what they like, just get over it and don't be such a tool pushing your beliefs on other people.

Believeing that subjectivism is the only good approach to music and arts is also narrow-minded. The idea that everything is worth the exact same thing and that the only people who can judge of the quality of something is the individual itself is an ideology. Mallcore, post-hardcore, dubstep and the likes are commercial genres. They are over-produced generic forms or so called art. They fail miserably as their prime obective isn't located in artistic goals but rather in economical goals. What do you call something that is made only for the purpose of gaining monetary capital ? A consumption product, nothing else.

Meal elitists are so adorable.
Please have some decency and go back to your shitty and let some of the few music appreciators here have a conversation. Maybe come back when/if your taste in/overall attitude toward music matures a little bit.

Damn, you post is unreadable. Stop being so hypocritical. We are very open-minded in many ways. Far more than you are, good sir. Because you obviously didn't read most of the posts in the discussion. I love metal music and I displayed in a previous post that I have very diversified tastes. Your point is invalid.

Music doesn't need vocals. Music also doesn't need instrumentals.

That instrumentals aren't the only thing that matters.

Nothing is wrong with rapping. It furthers my point that vocal ability (flow in this case) is a big part of music and shouldn't be overlooked. I can't tell you how many times I've seen metal elitists bash rap and say it isn't real music, that's all.

At the end of the day, we listen to music for pleasure. What the hell does it matter as long as it is doing that?

And by the way, what you're saying about post-hardcore being fueled by money is just completely wrong. There is NO money in that genre. Even the biggest bands in the genre don't make shit.

Rummy0, can you give me a few examples of songs that you are referring to as the talentless mallcore or whatever? Just so I can get a better idea of where we stand.

Limiting arts to a lousy entertainment is retarded. Art is deeply connected with political and sociological aspects or our societies. Especially modern and contemporary arts. Intellectuals in various fields of study research arts in it's various aspects. No, art is not just about consumption. Listening to music is not like drinking a Coke.

They are well-know. Not a Lady Gaga well-known, but if scene kids with no kind of musical and artistical background know about these bands it's because they have a visibility

Yeah exactly. Some musical artists are like picasso or leonardo da vinci, some of them are like the 5 year old who just learned how to hold a paint brush. You can say its all opinion, but at the end of the its fairly obvious to most people who is utter shite and who is amazing.

you just said earlier in this thread, "this club is for all fans of that distorted vocal technique in metal that we call screamo!"

you started the thread off wrong, and you're just making yourself even more wrong.

Alright. So appearently Screamo is a sub genre of music. Well when I was using the term "Screamo" I was thinking of the distorted vocals such as fry screaming, death growl, etc. But we all grow up listening to the music we listen to. And over time we listen to new music that just seams like crap to us. This is similar to adults, how they think that our modern music is crap. Although some of you guys are adults, and I can respect that. I like listening to Mallcore bands & I checked out some of the classic metal bands you posted & they actually sounded pretty fucking bad ass. And who said rap was bad? I like rap. :P
