What kind of coffee would your favorite metal band or subgenre be?

Because a fan on TikTok has boiled down the comparison between metal and metalcore using coffee, and the comments it's drawn are interesting.

The viral video is from KatieLeigh37 (@ktpineapple__) on TikTok, a creator and influencer who listens to metal and frequently makes clips about the music and its culture. Recently, she struck a chord with her take on metal versus metalcore via different manners of java.

In the video, the metal-loving TikToker says, "I feel like the best way to describe metalcore versus metal music is to compare it to coffee. Like metal would be straight espresso — it takes an acquired taste, it's a little more aggressive."
