Top 10 ingredients for a metal classic

Combine at least any of the following seven ingredients and you are guaranteed to make a hit
1Demolition Hammer
Epidemic of Violence

Must be fast.

Maybe the most important ingredient of all. None of that mid tempo stuff.
None So Vile

Must be Heavy.

Avoid clean vox and guitars. Let’s Keep it harsh.
3Pig Destroyer

Must have acceptable subject matter

If you’re going to sing about your ex, it better be because you just stuffed her dead body into a vat of acid, not because she left you for a drug dealer in high school. (Other acceptable subjects are murder, vikings, women, winter, and communism)
Effigy of the Forgotten

Must blastbeat for at least 50% of the song (preferably more)
5Dying Fetus
Wrong One To Fuck With

Must have (some) tunes

55 minutes of harsh noise is cool, but remember to throw in at least one or two ear catching parts at some point in the album
6Code Orange
Embrace Me // Erase Me

NO angst.

This is the most important of the no-nos. Seriously none of that fruity shit.
Bergtatt - Et eeventyr i 5 capitler

NO low energy

Second most important no-no. metal that lacks energy (drone metal, post-metal) generally sucks and even the slower, shittier genres like alt metal and blackgaze can make good use of this principal.
8Rings of Saturn
Ultu Ulla

NO phd level music theory.

Anything beyond major/minor modes, the circle of fifths, or basic polyrhythms is out.
Back In Black

NO pop or epic choruses

We're not here to write anthems for your boomer dad

Last by not least, NO opera.

in other words, NO metal extravaganzas. NO symphonies. NO epic soundscapes with flutes and shit that run 90 min and could double as medieval sci-fi video game music. The most you should ever go in this direction is melodeath, which is sweet.
