YouTube handle Th3ycharg3 a.k.a Jared Dines I’m sure has received many questions about his motives behind these insane videos, thus, his latest videos feature a new series called “Ask Jared.” Episode 1, titled, “Snapbacks, Travis Ryan, and Metal Soundtracks” addresses various topics like whether he’s still recording bands, tips on YouTube success for beginners, something about elephants, and his online run-in with the band Cattle Decapitation. Jared’s “10 Styles of Metal” video was posted on their page and it resulted in a pretty interesting reaction. Being that this video has over 2 million views, someone was bound to say something I suppose. In general, it seems there is not a metal sub-genre out there that will surprise Jared.
