Some bands look better with face-paint.

Yes, because that's exactly what I said. Let's got back to my post:

Wait, no, I didn't say that. I even critiqued that way of thinking.

I said that if they want to dress up they can, but I have always, and will always reserve the right to call it silly. That's the major point I made, since your original post implied we don't have that right because 'they want to do it.'

My other point, which was comparitively minor, is that black metal bands are enforcing a standard image that has to be adhered to, regardless of whether or not the individual band members would rather be dressed casually like they could be in any other band. Which is right at your 'I like dressing this way, why dress differently?' point. If it's not even doing what they want to do, then what defense is there for it? That it's a convention of the genre? And why is 'they can do what they feel like doing' even considered a good defense in the first place against somebody calling what they feel like doing silly?

While everybody's agreed that the image is of minor, and music of major, importance, they've gone to much greater lengths to cultivate a specific image than, in some cases, to become good musicians or songwriters. And always more than is necessary. Image is given a level of priority here that it doesn't have elsewhere. If they want to do something creative with their image, they invite a critique, as with their music. Telling me I can't say it's stupid because it's what they want to do is like telling me I can't say the music is poor because they wanted it to be that way. I understand that, and it's fine, but I still get to judge it.

But those two points aren't necessary. You don't have to buy them to allow me the right to call corpse paint silly. I can't think of a situation under which I can't call something that I find to be stupid, stupid. If you can explain to me how their right to wear what they want precludes my right to comment on it, I'd be hugely surprised, and wonder how you manage to critique anything done deliberately.

And, finally, keep in mind that, unlike some people, I don't burn down or stab what I dislike. If they want to dress up I won't do anything to stop them, and I'll do as little to stop myself from commenting on it.

also for all u, so called "real" metalheads, stop dressing up like shit... Its stupid how some people go to hot topic and buy all these bracelets, shirts, paint, make up, necklaces, rings, and have these weird ass hair styles just to try to be metal. I fucking laugh at people who try to look all "extreme", but I cannot help to stop myself.

SOOOOOOOOOOO damn true.

EVERY fucking local show I go to no matter if its a DM band or not, has either a black metal band playing, or they are in the pit like a punch of fags with nails on their arms going in hitting you with them, leaveing then comming back in...

Example...

http://scene.cherry-boy.com/oct31.html

this as the halloween show I was at 5 bands... 4 death metal, and 1 black metal.

I say who cares? A lot of great metal bands' lyrics are kind of "silly," but that's part of the appeal for me (Skinless, anyone?). Most of those guys don't take themselves too seriously and I think looking absolutely ridiculous is fun sometimes.

I dont think any black metal band wears corpse paint outside of live shows photo shoots or Halloween. Some bands can pull it off.

This link will show you the reason why corpse paint and black metal in general gets slandered. Be thankful these turds don't have a record contract.

I dont wear Cannibal Corpse shirts to show Im death metal.. I fucking hate wearing band shirts, its just another good way some stupid kid into KoRn will find bands to listen to that they never deserve to. I wear a "mister potatoe head" shirt with some raggidy ass jeans. I think people who wear alot of bands shirts and go around finding new bands to impress people are posers.

ALSO, BLACK METAL FACE PAINT is now an endorsed poduct of China's Panda Wild Animal and Life reserve. What better way to eat bamboo when u have black metal face paint?!

Well, I find that it's a way of supporting the bands that you love, especially if you buy (official) T-shirts at their shows. Bands without mainstream exposure rely heavily on selling merchandise (just to break even in many cases) so if I buy a shirt, wear it, some kid gets into them and then supports the band themselves then I'm all for it. It keeps our scene alive.

I really don't care how a band dresses up, I think the corpsepaint just shows what the band is all about.I can see how you find it silly, and in some cases it is.I believe that people should dress how they like, some people where certain thing they think are cool not to be cool but they like it.If a person feels they look better in multicolor suspenders than they should do it, if someone prefers black band T-shirts than they should do that.I wear band shirts of bands I like,but the actual graphic on it must look cool I don't want just a band logo on a shirt.I like the band In Flames and I think the Colony album cover is really cool looking, If I were to get one of their shirts I would get that becuase thats in my opinion what I prefer to wear.

yay rambling sentences
