Well, if I'm not teasing, I'm completely silent.
So how about a little tease? ;)
Stella Price-Rock and metal are fundamentally different in their time signatures, and rhythms. Now for me, Rock is the crap on the radio, its the stuff corporate music pushes down your throat. Metal is more abrasive, heavier, and less user friendly. Metal gives the feels through everything they are. Rock mostly through ballads. Metal, hardcore, whatever you wanna call it, Has a life all its own, and not because it was marketed that way, but because its part of the lives of the listeners and the music makers.
Shannon Lubold-Rock (whether contemporary or classic) is something I use to relax and unwind from my day. Metal motivates and energizes me. Kinda wanna kick ass in the gym...kinda want to punch someone in the throat.
Doug Price-Rock makes you move, make you remember the greatest times of your life... Metal helps you create those times rock reminds you of
Fred Hiller-Metal is malleable and workable. Rock crumbles.
