200px-MetalHealthQuietRiot.jpgFor an article that’s supposed to be trying to convert non-fans to the world of heavy metal, this piece sure expends a lot of words talking about what’s supposedly wack/corny/”uncool” about the genre. Dear Indie Kids: It’s okay to like “inherent machismo,” “masturbatory guitar solos,” and “abrasive vocals” without the crutch of the “all-important quality of irony.” Sometimes they’re even the point!
