Black Metal: The prince slits the princess's throat, sacrifices her to Satan, then rides the dragon to go burn down the nearest church.
There's also an old copypasta or joke that "explains" the difference with fairy tale tropes. It went something like
"Heavy metal is when the leather-clad prince rides in on a Harley-Davidson, downs a can of beer, chokes the dragon, then fucks the princess.
Doom metal is when the prince bores the dragon to death with his ultra-slow riffs. The princess too dies of boredom.
Progressive metal is when the prince bores the dragon to death with an hour-long solo devolving into pure insanity. The princess too dies of boredom.
Power metal is when the prince rides in on a unicorn, wearing a full plate polished to a mirror sheen. He defeats the dragon in an honorable duel to death, then rescues the princess.
and doesn't make sweet love to her, because he took an oath of purity.
Death metal is when the prince decapitates the dragon, drinks its blood, then murders the princess and rapes her corpse."
That's black metal, lower case b, you racist. Black metal, upper case B, sticks its head into the dragon's cave, shouts "Where all the white women at?", sees the princess, pops a cap in the dragon, fries it up like a giant chicken, and fattens up the princess because "dat ass", knocks her up, and leaves her and the little mulatto to be raised by the white prince.Black Metal: The prince slits the princess's throat, sacrifices her to Satan, then rides the dragon to go burn down the nearest church.
Heard them a few times, do they have a big following?INFANT ANNIHILATOR
I just know them by name, because it's a pretty catchy band name. I got lost with newer metal too, but if you're into speedier stuff there's a revival of traditional heavy/speed metal going on, you can try looking around on this channel:Heard them a few times, do they have a big following?
