By the way let us never argue about what type of metal something is. Oh and Debbie, I think you'll find Blacksabbath and Candlemass ARE doom metal!

Ok it works.

It only says that Doom metal was inspired by Black Sabbath... and it mentions Black Sabbath as influences a few times as you'd expect.

Oriental Metal? Interesting.

I suppose you could call Killing Joke "Arabic Metal".

I hate to spell this out....but I seriously doubt Emo ROCK will find it's way into a METAL genre listing!

I think Rap metal is sub-categorised under Nu-metal

That list is incomplete. They left out Gay Metal.

But, but that's the whole genre!!

Whilst Chimp Death-Metal flourishes....

Black-chimp metal
Black-cock metal?
Australian war-chimp metal...
Can't decide which one of these to base my new band around....
