Yeah. It's my opinion. What most people call extreme metal (including doom metal in the vein of Winter, and grindcore) is what I call metal and a lot of what other people would consider old school heavy metal is slightly closer to rock in my opinion. I think of it like Iron Maiden is closer to King Crimson than Bathory. Mercyful Fate is slightly closer to the borderline of metal than Iron Maiden is.
