it DOES matter how many albums you sell, despite what you say. here is my reasoning.

first off, pop music sales and metal music sales are different in a sense. dont always use the "if britney spears........"
plus, BS doesnt write her own music, so dont use her as an example......

ok, im pretty sure Obituary has the highest record sales of any pure death metal band. the album "the end complete" as of 1998, sold 250,000-300,000 copies worldwide. well, only people that like metal music would like Obituary. and judging by the sales, that would make it seem like Obituary is the most preffered pure death metal band. does that make them the best? your opinion may say no, but the majority says yes.

now, type o and SOTB are both goth bands. people who like goth music like type o, typeo sells better that SOTB, thus making type o a better band by majority, maybe not by your opinion though............

maybe not many people know SOTB as many know Type O Negative ... because Type O Negative is more COMMERCIAL ! and being commercial and having more record sales doesn't make you better.

Then let's compare Cradle of Filth and Mystic Circle ... of course CoF have a lot more sales than Mystic Circle ... does it make them better because they sell more records? imo ... NO ... or lets say Cannibal Corpse ... they sell more records than Vader ... are they better ...not to me ... well that's just my opinion ...

sins of thy beloved is sweet...i prefer them over type o anyday.

i dont reckon any band is better than another because of the amount of albums they sell, just different bands appeal to different people in different ways....Cannibal Corpse appeal to more people than Vader. thats how i see it i cant really decide who i prefer between CC and vader though probably CC cause i have more of their stuff

look, you are missing what im trying to say. it is your opinion that SOTB is better but, the majority of people who like goth music like type o better. type o is more commercial? thats just a stereotypical answer to too many band questions. they are both goth metal, type o sells more, so they are considered better by majority. people immdiately associate good music as just being "commerical". i hate when people use that. its all goth music, but type o sells more.

Crematory ? ... SOTB ? ... NO !!! ... then what does it means ? ... is Type O Negative commercial ? .. you answer it ...

I'll throw my two cents into this. The only band that you guys have mentioned that I've ever heard was Type O Negative. The album October Rust is really cool, when I'm in the mood for it. I don't like the other things I've heard by them very much though...

And why are you guys all arguing about band popularity?

listen malphas, you are still missing my point. here it is once again:

my opinion and your opinion aside, type o has more fans than Sins, thus BY A MAJORITY OF PEOPLE WHO LIKE GOTH MUSIC, they are better. im going by MAJORITY OPINION. taking fans of goth music, more like type o. plain and simple.

goth music may not be that popular, but type o happens to be a rare occurance of a very popular goth band.........

plus, just cuz people who know of slipknot and such know of type o, what is your point in that?

they are both goth bands, but type o is more popular. you cant just accuse them of being commercial just becaise they have good music. with just 4 members, they make better goth music than some other goth bands that have 5-7 members.......

more people know them because they are more POPULAR but it doesn't mean that they are better ...that's what I'm trying to say ... so dont talk shit saying that Type O Negative is the better goth band ... because they are NOT... they are just more popular ...

and about the Slipknot shit I just said it to tell you that even nu-metal kids know Type O Negative ... that they are fuckin commercial ...

look, your taking a much too stereotypical stance on this. more people like type o. i say that type o is better not because of my opinon but because that a the more popular goth band.

just like i would say obituary is better than cannibal corpse

or linkin park is better than limp bizcuit

its the same genres, but the one band is the greater seller........

look, right there you are stating an opinion, you need to gets some facts.

maplphas, please listen here...........

more people think type o is the best, thus making them the best, not becuase i think so or because you think not, but because they have the most people who think they are the best.

majority likes them, so thats it............

and type o has no relations with nu metal................

People think Cradle of Filth are the best ... they are not

Pleople think Linkin Park are the best ...they are not

People think Britney Spears is the best ..she's not (nice ass tho)

People think Cannibal Corpse are the best ...they are not ...


It doesn't matter what the majority of people think ...

then if you're a commercial band ... more people think you're the best .. and you're not ... it's just that they know you ... for being commercial ... yeah


and I know that Type O Negative have no relatiuon with nu-metal ...but I was saying that even nu-metal kids likes/know them ...and why ? .. yeah commercial ...
