Probably won't hurt him too badly.. but no one should want to go to a show where someone with COVID is screaming at them.  Best to delay it.

One of the first "big" bands I saw in concert was Korn about 27 years ago at the Sailors Union Of The Pacific House in Seattle. Basically a large fully tiled (ceiling too iirc) shoe box. Rosarch Test opened for them and killed it.  The place was so packed and hot that sweat was dripping back down from the ceiling.
This was just after Korn came out with Chutes and Ladders (I think that was the name?) and they were the first band I'd seen that had actual tour busses and what not. Prior to that I'd gone to concerts at the Y.
I was never a huge Korn fan but it was a good show  . The hall was so cramped it felt like we were in a submarine. A leaky one.

Helmet put on a tight show. Lots of dynamic tempo changes and the like in their music, and they are perfectly together as a band. I was impressed by the skills.

/this was circa 1995 or 1996 when they toured with Rollins Band

assuming you're not trolling, (and you are. Welcome to Fark...), it's because they had a sense of humor.  During the p2p file sharing days I discovered them via their Legend of Zelda song. Once you stick around, you realize Serj has got to be one of the best male voices in metal.

That wasn't them. It got shared on all those services that way because of the similarity with the vocals but it's not Serj or SoaD.

that's hysterical!  "Pogo" still rocks, tho. And has humor.  And when he does a crappy death-metal-esque growl in "They're Trying To Build A Prison" it's also humorous.

Not trolling, I just legit cannot understand it. I'm a lifelong metalhead but every SOAD song I've heard is unpleasant at best, and I absolutely loathe the singer's voice. Yet everyone seems to love 'em. Meh, I'll never understand it.

I like the music a lot. The vocals are too much for me. Especially when they let the little guy sing. Nails on a chalkboard.

No, it's 100% serious.  They aren't a metal band.  Just because there's distorted guitars and angry vocals doesn't mean it's metal.

Only in the most 'technically correct' kind of way is SoaD not metal. The person you're replying to is incredibly anally retentive about his genre labels when it comes to metal in particular. Any thread about any band that someone might call metal, he'll be there to set you straight. In this particular case, SoaD is considered nu metal; metal isn't specific enough, or isn't really metal(their more likely reply), or whatever, so make sure whatever you do you don't call them metal.

Nu-metal isn't metal.

According to you. You're just being an annoying gatekeeper. It's worse because you're gatekeeping a band that's over 20 years old. System of a Down is metal.

Saying soad is a metal band is like telling someone that the Shining is a western movie since it's set in Colorado.
