Why are people so fickle with genres? Like I’ve seen people go off on others for calling Lacuna Coil symphonic metal. Honestly a lot of styles just kind of overlap; symphonic metal has elements of classical music and opera and metal. It’s also kind of similar to gothic metal. Even if the person doesn’t get a band’s genre correct why get all butthurt about it? Heck, I’ve even heard someone yell at another for saying Within Temptation is symphonic metal. Is it not though?
