Scientist of the Invisible

Too much ammunition lately, not enough self-control.

Metal: wel hip, nog steeds niet geliefd

David McNamee vraagt zich in The Guardian af waarom metal anno 2007 wel opgemerkt en gewaardeerd werd, totdat het tijd werd voor de jaaroverzichten:

Metal albums in 2007 didn't so much push the envelope as shred it - see Dillinger Escape Plan or Pig Destroyer's atom-smashing Phantom Limb; a breath-wrenching renewal in the galaxy-mapping musical potential of black metal from Mayhem, Marduk, Deathspell Omega; breakthroughs from hungry young gods Baroness and Witchcraft, and new classics from old hands Machine Head and Down.
[...]
Nevertheless, there wasn't a single rock or metal album in the critics polls from Uncut, Mojo, The Guardian, Observer Music Monthly, Drowned In Sound or Pitchfork, with NME counting just Queens Of The Stone Age's weak comeback, and the newly-metal-friendly Wire solely hailing hippy-doomsters Om. Given that other perceived niche genres such as dance or hip-hop are well represented, if tokenistically, you have to wonder why there is still such a stigma and snobbery around the canonisation of metal.

Wat het altijd extra raar maakt voor mij is dat metal gewoon een variant van de dominante stroming rock is. Dance en hip-hop zijn veel afwijkender.
