I disagree. I think you will find one of the purest forms of Metal is the band formed by the late Chuck Schuldiner " Death " In my opinion anyways.
Have a listen to The Sound of Perserverance.
Yeah I was a little lit when I made this thread. But I do like how many genres they incorporate. I hate when they get labled "Nu-Metal"

So much more than that

I do really like Nu-Metal as well, so no bias
