I just dont understand how you can use the word "dancing" to describe something you do and feel cool or in any way manly. jus sayin.

You insulting someone for being unintelligent means absolutely nothing when in reality you're just insulting them because you feel like your music taste is better than theres even though music is completely subjective. If this person was saying something you agreed with you would have kept your mouth shut so don't act all high and mighty.

Bahahaha so you judge people based on their music taste SO much that because I love core music and DARE to defend the music I love (I know, it's a terrible thing), I don't deserve to have a musician who I also love as my avatar. You're just coming off as an ignorant metal snob to me. You know, if Deathcore was praised around here and Doom Metal, or Folk Metal was insulted then I would stick up for those too because I love those genres too. The point is, when something that I like is insulted, I stick up for it and if you have a problem with that I really don't care.

^^^ 80% agree with u. veil of maya is a different story imo. i think they're a bit more on the technical death metal side instead of deathcore. they may not be amazingly awesome, but they're still good tho. the guitarist is what makes the band, with his odd, nonstop riffing. not to mention he's just one guy doing both guitar parts.
