    for i long time, ive considered anything "metal" to be bad. but now im getting into led zeppelin and acdc, and i think i could go a step or two heavier before it just hurts my ears.

    this has gotten me wondering; what exactly is the difference between:

    goth
    emo
    (heavy)metal
    screamo
    hardcore

    etc.

    also, carrying on from led zeppelin -> acdc, whats the next step?

    on a completely different note, what are some of the must listen to grind/dubstep artists? just to save me making another thread...

    goth--very odd mix of grunge/metal with twisted lyrics.
    Emo--half screaming/half boyband singing type stuff with sad bawww lyrics
    screamo--unrecognizeable lyrics/grunts&fast paced music worth moshing to
    Metal--old school-remnant music that has almost faded from existance imo

    Hardcore--easily confused for screamo, but actually is more instrumentally inclined.

    All just my opinions after being around the music for so long. It varies I suppose.

    I would recommend Metallica or Iron Maiden, a bit more of a metal influence than the bands you mentioned above.

    I used to HATE metal 2 years ago, but then I listened to Paschendale (Iron Maiden), and I loved it. Now I listen to Iron Maiden, Led Zepellin, Deep Purple and a bit of Metallica but I hate bands like Slipknot that are screaming all the time.
