Genre hang-ups !!! Why are so many people hung up on specific genre, when it's just a way to communicate an idea, in order to create more conversation on the subject ?! If it's good, it's good. If you relate to it, then the musicians have done their job. You can pick apart, any metal song, and find any number of different styles, and while your doing that, your loosing the big picture as a whole, and the shear enjoyment, and pleasure the band has worked so hard to convey ! It's like saying you love pizza, but only talking about the garlic, not the combined influences that each ingredient contributes, to create the enjoyment of the flavor of pizza as the food itself. No one wants to eat a mouthful of garlic, but pizza is one of the most popular foods there is !!! I say, sit back, and enjoy a slice, stop picking it apart !!!
