Innit. Some cunthorse over at the Guardian called Sarah Dempster had this amazing article where she basically flat out said that while Rap/Hip-Hop/Pop/Dance Music etc have all evolved and experimented, heavy metal is the same now as it was 30 years ago.
Compare something like... I dunno, Anaal Nathrakh to Deep Purple, or Eluveitie to Slayer.
As a cynical metaller I'm all for mocking metal (because let's face it, at the end of the day 80% of it is grown men in leather screaming) but come on, that statement is fucking horseshit.
