To be fair, Viking metal sort of existed before and independent of folk metal. I mean, I wouldn't call Bathory's Norse-themed albums folk metal really. Same with early Enslaved (which is more black metal I guess) or Amon Amarth.

Troll metal is retarded.

I can sort of see how calling a folk metal bands something like "celtic folk metal" might be useful just to specify which exact type of folk music the band is influenced by (if it's a specific culture's).

If anyone used to get mail order catalogs from Metal Disc there would be some hilarious descriptions of the bands. I cant quote them, but they'd describe a band as "super brutal epic symphonic black metal with a little bit of death" or something like that.

Makes sense though.

There's nothing wrong with subsubsubsubgenres, as long as you're not an asshole about them and they are legitimized genres. It simply makes conversation between knowledgeable fans more informative, you don't genrespeak with some random asshole, that's where it gets annoying.

Take a band like Von Thronstahl, wiki says they're a martial industrial band, but that's vague as fuck and barely works, so if someone told me they are an electronic NS martial industrial band with neoclassical and folk rock influences I'd be able to mash all those sounds into one and it make sense.

one of these that is particularly perplexing is "war metal". Blasphemy, Black Witchery, Beherit, Impiety, Deiphago, etc. it's just an aesthetic value, yet folks on the NWN! forums would probably debate you do death about how its a "real" subgenre of black/death/thrash metal. Bolt Thrower aren't war metal but they talk about war. it's the same thing with Viking Metal, yet it seems like this actually has been categorized as a real genre with bands like Bathory and Enslaved being called Viking Metal on the Metal Archives. they say it has to encompass some sort of atmosphere to be called that, which is why a band like Amon Amarth that sing about vikings still isn't refereed to as such. i refer at times to some of the bands mentioned above those terms myself, but in the sense of aesthetic value, not pure sound. i don't consider them "real" genres that should be established. it's just terminology in the sense of saying "old school doom", "Swedish d-beat", or whatever.

indeed.

Nu-metal made sense too when bands like Korn where around. It was to distinguish "true" metal and pop/HipHop influenced lame-core.
