Default Re: Joey Jordison

Metal to me is anything that has predominately rock-based roots but can no longer be considered rock music. Perhaps once upon a time metal was simply faster, louder rock music but not all metal is heavier then rock and not all metal is fast, look at bands like My Dying Bride, they predominately play around 60bpm and as low as 40. I don't consider that quick.

EDIT: Just something else I had to add, I've noticed most metal music is down-beat as opposed to up-beat. This is quite opposed to a lot of commercial music and contributes to metal being moderately inaccessible to a lot of people.
A disquiet mind at therapy with the music.
