    No. Bands like Metallica are metal. Chevelle is not.

    Doesn't make them metal, makes them alternative metal. There's a huge difference.

    Yah, Chevelle is NOT metal. Chevelle is about as metal as Breaking Benjamin, which is not at all.

    Even if its not, it still has metal in its name. How is not metal?

    EDIT: it's actually a sub genre of Heavy Metal. My bad. Point still stands though.

    No your point doesn't stand. Chevelle or any band labeled as "Alternative Metal" are nowhere near metal at all. Just because it has the word metal in it doesn't mean it's actually metal. It's a homonym.

    You win the award for most helpful reply ever Cheers.

    Also minuteforce I know vocals aren't the only thing that makes a song heavy, but I just meant the vocals themselves sounded weak, the instruments I never had a problem with.

    Correct. All For Nothing does have 'shouted' vocals, but nothing I'd call screaming like the "GONEEEEE" at the end of Until It's Gone.

    Technically speaking, "Metal" is just an abbreviation for "Heavy Metal".

    Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple.. ALL considered "Metal" .. and then Judas Priest, Iron Maiden.. followed by "Glam Metal" bands like Poison.

    Metallica is technically "Thrash Metal"

    Sure, there are plenty of modern bands that are more focussed on speed and low-tuning and feature more screaming/growling, but "Alternative Metal" is no less a part of "Metal" than "Groove" or "Death" or "Black Metal".. because none of those modern conventions have ANYTHING to do with the music being "Metal". Counter to what some Metal fans want to believe, being included in "Metal" has nothing to do with the likelihood that someone will extend their index and pinky fingers.. Just as a song doesn't have to be loud to be "Rock" Music.

    They are ALL building on what came decades before.
