When describing bands, I'm not way into the crazy subgenre names...Some sound just sound annoying or ridiculously specific. For example: Austrian Melodic blackened Death metal...c'mon.

--Anyways here's a list or encyclopedia if you will, of a lot of different metal genres you would most likely stumble across.

**Listed under each category are some bands I feel represent said genre.

More genres to come, if I think of any haha

Not bad! Missing a few, like Blind Guardian, Vader, Cradle of Filth, Sonata Arctica, Venom, Judas Priest, and most egregiously Motorhead, but a decent representation nevertheless.
