Is there a music genre called 'Brutal Glam Metal'?
There is now
Rather kinda what KISS was, no? Or at least, played dress-up as?
97.5% of musical categories (like statistics) are just made up anyway, so yes.
That being said, "brutal" and "glam" in the same descriptive phrase seems ironic....maybe even an oxymoron. In my mind the brutal kids beat up the glam kids on the playground.
These sub genres are getting ridiculous. I try to be kind to everyone....especially young musicians. But if I met a kid and he told me he was in a "brutal glam metal" band I probanly wouldn't be able to help myself when my eyes roll and the word "Seriously?" jumps from my mouth.
I found some research material.....Short bursts of language not safe for work/children.
My favorite fictional genre is Speed Mellow.
If there is, this guy started it
That's just you running across the stage, right?
White Zombie / Rob Zombie
I think they're more shock-metal. Metal because they're certainly heavy with harsh vocals, and shock because a lot of their musical, and artistic as a whole, image is based on horror and non-conformity.
Ehh, it's close enough to me. It's brutal, they dress up , and it's metal. I don't get too wrapped up in what makes a sub-genre a sub-genre... it really doesn't serve any good purpose, except to create little boxes to put people in.
Yeah, I think the extent of sub-genres gets silly and especially when very versatile and diverse musicians get pigeonholed into some specific category. But there are some general sub-genres that are useful descriptors for the general character of a group. It's the difference between melodic blackened death metal, which to me, in most instances, should just stop at either black or death metal (which are very different), or stoner doom metal which seems pretty specific but is honestly a pretty good description of a lot of bands when compared to just general stoner rock or metal.
What about Glam Core? Is that a thing?
Its like Jump Shrimp.
Check out Black Veil Brides, Pantera’s first album Cowboys From Hell, Baby Metal, Steel Panther... I’m sure there’s others, but this should get you on the right track.
Brutal Glam Metal/Glam Core right here now.
