Keep it tight... and intricate!
"There’s something about the rawness of the music that’s inspiring and exciting, and although I’m traditionally a metalhead who usually gravitates toward tight and precise guitar riffs, I’m digging the looseness, heaviness and intensity of these two bands."
So ultimately, what I guess I've proven is that in with it's sense of perfection, rhythmic neatness, and structured flowing pattern, it is the groove metal genre that is most widely cleabrated modern style by genuine metalheads. The people who celebrate groove metal do then seem to be the same people who are critical of the metalcore genre which sees the metallic element released in a slower and more dense form in it's array of insane breakdowns. This genre and all it's descendants. (deathcore, mathcore, synthcore, Nintendocore) This isn't really relevant to anything but I hope it's filled you with some knowledge and made your day.
