    Red face hate metal?

    Hello,

    "I don't see him listening to a lot of like hate metal."

    Is "hate metal" a genre of music? If so, what kind?
    Does it relate to heavy metal?

    Thank you,
    Tara

    It's not a genre I've heard of, but it sounds to me quite possible - heavy metal with particularly aggressive lyrics.

    Hello BobK,

    Thank you again for your kind remark.

    I love music, but it seems too complicated to distinguish
    when it comes to genre.

    Thank you,
    Tara

    It appears to be racist:

    - that makes sense. It could be an analogue of the (originally AmE I think) hate-crime - in which the 'hate' refers particularly to racial hatred.

    While I was roaming around looking thinmgs up, I came across an astonishing number of subsets of Death Metal. Wiki has this list:
    * 3.1 Melodic death metal
    * 3.2 Scandinavian death metal
    * 3.3 Florida death metal
    * 3.4 Technical death metal
    * 3.5 Progressive death metal
    * 3.6 Brutal death metal
    * 3.7 Death/Doom
    * 3.8 Blackened death metal
    * 3.9 Deaththrash
    * 3.10 Grindcore
    * 3.11 Other fusion genres

    I particularly relished the idea of 'Progressive Death Metal'. Can you reead this sentence?
    However, Scandinavia (particularly Norway) is more notorious for its quantity of black metal as opposed to "true" death metal, though Gothenburg in Sweden is regarded as the capital of melodic death metal, leading melodic death metal to be named Gothenburg metal by many, and "Gothencore" for the bands more noticeably influenced by metalcore.
    Reading it made me feel like FE Smyth's judge- no more in the light, but better informed.
