Cello Metal?!

Do we need a subgenre cause a bunch of finnish guys covers metal songs on cellos?! I'm not sure about that. Does anyone remember german metal band "Die Schweisser"? They had a guy playing a saxophone. Do we need Sax Meta thenl? I don't think so. Don't get me wrong here. I respect and like Apocalyptica; I just ask, if what they do justifies a new genre.

If you want to expunge cello metal probably the thing to do is start a WP:AfD at Cello rock. Alternatively, you could start a discussion about whether this exists but is not a genre as such. There do not appear to be any sources that indicate it exists at the moment.--SabreBD (talk) 12:17, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Heavy metal subgenres

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Heavy metal subgenres's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "ScreamoAM":

  • From Emo: Explore style: Screamo at AllMusic Music Guide
  • From Screamo: "Explore style: Screamo". AllMusic. 2010. Archived from the original on October 17, 2010. Retrieved 2015.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT? 08:26, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

This is a Sub-Genre page

Im not into Crust or some of the other sub-genres but if its mixed with Metal and has references and the Articles also state they are Mixed with any form of Metal they belong here. How are some people removing this material like its not "metal". No kidding its a Sub-Genre of Metal. Its not anyones Personal Choice what stays or not. It has references it has consensus it stays. Until someone proves they are Not Related to Metal.CombatMarshmallow (talk) 01:08, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

Requested move 20 June 2016

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: page moved.(non-admin closure) Eventhorizon51 (talk) 14:38, 28 June 2016 (UTC)


Heavy metal subgenres -> Heavy metal genres - to bring the article into line with similar articles on subgenres such as Reggae genres, List of hip hop genres, List of country genres, List of blues genres, List of electronic music genres, List of jazz genres, or List of trance genres. The fact that these are subgenres is obvious. If renamed, we can subsequently bring Category:Heavy metal subgenres into line with the other subcategories within Category:Musical subgenres by genre. -- PanchoS (talk) 16:22, 20 June 2016 (UTC)


The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

Add nu Metalcore and progressive Metalcore

As popflock.com resource now has a pages on these subgenres they should be added to the subgenre page as derivatives of metalcore -- Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.144.21.58 (talk) 18:32, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

This is a bad list

This list of subgenres is incomplete. It completly omits genres such as southern metal and electrogrind, who are mentioned in popflock.com resource (not to mention others). It also omits subgenres such as sleaze metal, buts does not omit genres such as space metal. This list is also very messy when it comes to it's sections. Personally, I've counted over 80 subgenres of heavy metal, and though I know it's original research, they're true genres. This list omits: sleaze metal, southern metal, light metal, industrial black metal, industrial thrash metal, industrial death metal, blackened crust, electrogrind, progressive black metal, technical thrash metal, and others. It also includes movements and umbrella terms as subgenres (such as Neue Deutsche Härte, teutonic thrash metal, and extreme metal). I know I will probably never get answered, but I just wanted to voice my concerns. SML-Growl n' Screetch 21:08, 1 July 2018 (UTC)

Have you tried to add any of those subgenres to the list yourself? Others might object, but if you added one or two at a time, perhaps with an explanation on this Talk page, you will probably succeed in adding at least some of the subgenres you mention.   - Mark D Worthen PsyD (talk) 20:05, 2 July 2018 (UTC)

It wouldn't get axcepted, I avoid the risk. ~SML TP 23:30, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

Adding other subgenres

There are a lot of genres mentioned in Wikipedia, not all of them are sourced, but we should add the ones that are. I'm proposing to add (note all of the subgenres are in Wikipedia, and are referenced) blackened crust, electrogrind, crustgrind, ambient black metal, black 'n' roll, slam death metal, industrial black metal, symphonic death metal, progressive metalcore, war metal, and others I haven't yet mentioned. ~SML o TP 21:51, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
