Oh, also there is such a thing as symphonic death metal as well. I think that's a more than valid inclusion as well. Examples, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Septicflesh etc. In fact, not to make things super complex but why can't we just be able to mix and match tags. For example: symphonic death, progressive black, avant-garde gothic etc. Seems like a more realistic and flexible way to pigeon-hole specifics. No idea if that's realistic but worth a shout. BTW, thanks for all the upgrades! As a fan of this site, i'm so happy!!!!

Will bring back YouTube, first.

In the mean time, I will change the number of reviews in the homepage to 5 new, 10 older reviews

Merci, Monsieur! I agree with HeavyMetalCat. Brutal Death Metal should be here as well to distinguish it from old school death metal and tech. There is some death metal that is just ridiculously heavy.

I personally think it should be here. But it's not my decision to make. I do wonder why it keeps being left out though.

Glad to see that neoclassical and death-doom are now here.

So now I have to ask about one last gap that's bothering me:

Brutal Death Metal

Agreed, even when the see more reviews link returns I'd like to see the ten stay on the front page.

Nice to see more old release reviews on the frontpage, really helps them stay visible for longer if someone posts a bunch of reviews in a short time. Clap

So in all:

Neoclassical Metal

Doom Metal with Death-Doom Metal child sub

Sludge Metal with Atmospheric Sludge Metal child sub

Metalcore with Mathcore child sub

Along with the additions, I'd also like to request a small change from last year's wave of new subs: Can US Power Metal be detached from the main Power Metal sub-genre and become its own main sub-genre please? The current setup makes it look like we're calling USPM a sub-genre of other power metal, which isn't actually true. You do get some USPM bands that are quite close to Euro techniques like Iced Earth, but mostly USPM is its own thing with its own way of doing things. Ideally these two things wouldn't share a name but we can hardly change history. Two parent genres makes more sense having worked on this sub for the past year. 


All done, please confirm it's good.



Perfect! Thumbs Up

Nice one Max, thanks.

I think Chris may have some suggestions for some subs but for now could you please also add Death-Doom Metal under Doom Metal?
