Uncommon music criticized by the common man. (Or, exercises in futility masquerading as critical thought.)

CNN covers metal on a slow news day. Hilarity ensues.

Honestly, it's not a terrible article, just rather shallow and pointless. None of these elements (social/political commentary, drawing on literature or mythology) are new to the genre. They make it sound like there is this huge movement in metal to incorporate "mature" themes, which is a total crock. These elements have always been there, and probably always will be. Let's Just hope they don't discover Arch Enemy's Angela Gossow, or we might be subjected to a "women in metal" piece of equally useful content.
