Chances are you would have wasted your time with a band called 'Brutal Gore Fuckers' no matter what.

I hate the genre fagdance as much as anybody, but it makes sense for the reasons Infinity almost articulated. And listing a few existing, recognizable genres to give an impression about the areas the music touches upon is preferable to coining new genre names that tell you nothing about the music because it's easier than giving a helpful description. More helpful would be the specific bands whose influences you think you hear, but, generally speaking, even this would only be mildly helpful and would always lead back to the requirement that 'you have to hear it.' Art criticism fucking sucks and it's a shame we need it.
