I can't even begin to understand that view when it is the broadest genre in existence.
There are metal bands without drums, bands that don't use guitars, tons of music without vocals, every vocal style under the sun, orchestral music, music with violins, with brass or woodwind leads, sub 10 bpm, over 300bpm.... it goes on and on.
I know commercial rock music heavier then a lot of metal and most of the heaviest music I've ever heard tends to be more dark ambiance/noise/ebm, such as cold meat industries, which is certainly not metal, so that can't even be used as an argument against all
