Here I dissect some of many of the misconceptions people and critics have toward metal music hopefully this will put some belief into people metal does take talent.
Myth 1: Metal is all about Satanic worship and many of the members of metal groups of Satanists themselves.
Dissection: No, despite popular belief metal is not focused all around Satan nor are the creators of metal content. Metal was created as a dark genre and the foundation as well as content was built around that.
Myth 2: Screaming and growling doesnt take talent.
Dissection: No, it takes much effort to make those screams and growls sound real and not airy.
Myth 3: Screaming and growling as hazardous.
Dissection: So far this is the only true myth thrown around on the internet. it can be hazardous towards the vocal capacities and lifespan as it puts much stress on the vocal chords.
Myth 4: Metal warps the listeners mind to think a certain way.
Dissection: No, metal does not seduce the those who listen to it to think any different than if one were to listen to rap music or pop music.
Myth 5: Many metal bands do not stay together for long.
Dissection: This answer varies between yes and no. As much as I hate to say it, many metal bands dont stay together for long. Whether it be a lack of interest by the industry or the members wishes are just not being fulfilled, For every metal band that disbands, its just another fatality to the genre.
