I'm 52 and still play metal,but it depends on what you call metal,after all it is subjective.Our generation remembers when metal came to be,so why wouldn't we like it?That being said,I'll go out on a big limb and say that what passes for metal these days is generic growling,except for a few progressive metal bands it seems to be more about the tatts , piercings and manufactured anger than actual songs or musicianship.I'm still listening,somebody new please impress me.

There is a GREAT point made here...metal (and music in general) IS very subjective. I totally agree. I actually didn't really start listening to music until I was 14, which is also when I started playing guitar. Right off the bat, I started using Megadeth as a starting point; I learned fast and Dave Mustaine quickly became a huge influence of mine. Now, the list of guitarists (which inclued a LOT of metal musicians) who have influenced my playing style is HUGE. Megadeth will always hold a very special place in my heart and cd player though...

The big point is that a lot of people don't consider a lot of metal bands to be just that...metal. I've met people who didn't consider Megadeth metal, because they don't use down-tuned seven string guitars and scream like crazy. I know people who don't consider Led Zep or Black Sabbath metal for the same reason. I've played in a band with guys who didn't believe a metal band to be metal unless they use crazy solos. I think metal is a huge style of music and probably one of the most subjective.

Personally, I don't like a lot of the older metal bands. There are a few I'm into, but not that many; I go for the newer stuff, because it is 95% of what I listened to while learning to play guitar. I will argue tooth and nail that the bands I listen to today are metal; styles of music change and expand over time. A lot of newer bands bring a different sound to the table, but they're still metal. Just a different sort and there is nothing wrong with that.

Now that I've written a freaking essay, to the point! *laughs* A few years ago, I went with my parents to St. Martens, England to be there for my aunt's wedding. I think I had an older In Flames album and my mother (57 at the time) gave it a listen and really got into it. Now, she is 61 and a total metal head. Metal knows no age! *laughs* She is probably the biggest Shadows Fall fan I know...

JUDAS PRIEST, now thats the perfect discription of metal.from old school to new school they can hold their own. I think zep and sabbath were heavy rock but J.P. bought the metal into the fore.
Mastadon rule as well. And Aussie band Dream Killers are fab too.

Oh yes. I like it when I'm at an intersection as Jimmy Page cranks one out and notice kids pointing. Hah, I sat forty feet away from him and his famous band. TWICE. Some day they'll be pointing again when I'm playing air guitar in my rest home wheelchair as they empty my bedpan.

It does not matter what kind of music you just has to reach your soul....although I have to admit.....rock and metal were my music of choice in high school...but I appreciate all music.....well maybe not rap....but to each his own.

f I make it to be 55, I'll still love Metal
In my opinion...I think most metal bands write tunes more about the truth, and the world around us...other than these country and pop bands that only write about love and crap
Rock On

What is sad and that a lot of people do not know is a lot of heavily commercialized music in the pop, country, R&B, Hip Hop, and the teenie bands is that a lot of them do not write their own lyrics. The pay people out right for them to write an entire song so they can sing it. Now metal bands for the most part write all of their own stuff, and if they do need help with writing a song (hence I said help because they don't have people write them entire songs they have fellow musicians come in the studio and help them slosh around ideas) they call in fellow musicians of the rock and heavy metal world. Personally if you can't write your own stuff I do not think you should be getting paid millions of dollars. It is sorta of like being in a cover band (no I am not knocking cover bands I am using it as an example) they sing and play stuff that someone else has wrote. Now that is not inferring the greats from way back in the day I am referring to these modern groups and people. Of course that's my two cents

Man ...metal does not need to subjegated to one specific age group .its been around since the late 60's. COME ON PEOPLE, GET BACK IN THE GROOVE. Rap music is just a passing fad, But Metal will live on forever. From Humble beginnings like black sabbath to the sounds of 80's thrash metal to todays even slightly more popular but slightly more annoying version of nu-metal. Its here to stay folks ....LONG LIVE THE METAL

Who care's what age you are if your liking metal. Enjoy it. One day I'll be 60 listening to Dr. Dre's, "Ain't Nothing but a G Thang."

You're 55 and you like metal? That's so cool.

It's hard to find someone my age who likes it, let alone 55. My parents hate it.

I absolutely despise Slipknot as much as anyone, but it makes me laugh when metal elitest say they arent metal. Slipknot is metal, get over it!

Im a big metal fan, listening to most of the genres within metal. As well as other types of music, but mainly metal.

Metal bands Ive been listening to lately....

Acid Bath, Slayer, Cradle of Filth, Goatwhore, Carpathian Forest, Akercocke, Satyricon, Ratt, Opera IX, Dark Funeral, Twisted Sister, Dio, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Grim Reaper, etc
