Map of Metal
 
I can't believe how cool this is.


http://www.mapofmetal.com/

It literally is a map of metal.

That is actually pretty damn cool. Not sure this site is the best place to appeal to the people that would be interested in it, but it seems incredibly well thought out, even if I don't completely agree with everything.

Wow, thats a pretty fascinating and well executed idea! I would like to see something like this done for all of music... whew, that would be quite the undertaking!

Pretty cool.

Good to see people actually recognize the Viking metal and Traditional black metal difference.

Although, there is so much subgenre in metal, still a cool site

Very cool. There's at least 10 or 15 songs you can listen to for every type of metal on there. I'll be forwarding that link on to some friends.

Interesting.

It does a good job showing the evolution of the various sub-geners, and how they relate relative to each other.

I wanted to dislike it, because I was thinking great, it will re-enforce the idea that bands are only one sub-genre, re-enforce the idea that all bands must be pigeon holed into one neat little box.

But reading the text of each sub-genre, the author does mention here and there that some sub-genre's may only be a song or single-album specific for a particular artist, and some bands may be found in more than one category.

So, good job.

And I'm digging there are audio examples. I could be here all day listening to bands I'm not familiar with.

I'd say there was a lot of differences between them.
