[Random Cool] If Horror Characters Were Metal Genres

A cool image popped up in my newsfeed that compares different horror or horror-esque characters with different genres of metal. Different characters include Hellraiser‘s Pinhead, The Crow‘s Eric Draven, Clash Of The Titan‘s Hades, and more.

Several of them seem pretty spot on (Pinhead and Dracula definitely work) but some of these really make me think that genre-defining is going WAY too far. “Depressive Suicidal Black Metal”? “National Socialist Black Metal”? “Raw Black Metal”? What’s that, black metal that wasn’t cooked long enough?

Head on down to check out the image and leave your thoughts on which characters would be good with which types of metal genres! Don’t ask me why but I have a weird feeling that Jason would really dig listening to some Pantera.

Got any thoughts/questions/concerns for Jonathan Barkan? Shoot him a message on Twitter or on Bloody-Disgusting!

    Freddy Krueger – Grindcore (Napalm Death, Carcass, Autopsy)

    Jason Vorhees – Old school 80’s thrash (early Slayer, Sodom, Testament, Overkill)

    Michael Myers – Slow doom (Saint Vitus, Electric Wizard, Sleep)

    Leatherface – Southern sludge (Crowbar, Rwake, Eyehategod)

    Chucky – for some reason the only band I can think of is Korn…

    Some of these don’t need the prefix word “black” – for example, gothic metal is just fine. That being said, I find the Beetlejuice one hilarious!

  • Matt Macabre

    I don’t recognize some of these faces. What movies are the Blackened Death Metal, Symphonic Black Metal, Viking Black Metal, Epic/Atmospheric Black Metal & Pagan Black Metal?

  • Rick-Taylor

    The warlock from Warlock would definitely fit into Industrial Metal.

    Zombies are the epitome of Death Metal, sharing many qualities.

    The Thing – DeathGrind

    Xenomorphs – DeathThrash

    The Blob – Sludge Metal

    Tremors – Southern groovy Thrash

    Chidren of the Corn/The Omen/The Good Son – Japanese Idol Metal

    Critters – Thrash Metal

    Night of the Creeps/Slither – Crossover Thrash

    Dracula – Goth Metal

    By the way, “Raw” means very low-tech and unpolished way of recording. Like setting up a tape recorder in the middle of your bedroom and having everyone play.

    Jigsaw – Progressive Metal
