ABOUT EVERYNOISE.COM
As data science, this is pretty unruly. Thereʼs no imposed taxonomy of
genres, and we have no objection to genres that overlap in small or even
large part if they represent a subtle distinction that somebody, somewhere
might care about (e.g. “gothic metal” vs. “symphonic metal” vs. “gothic
symphonic metal”).

In the same spirit, any artist can be in as many different genres as apply. The
genres arenʼt even of the same sort: “tekno” is a very particular dance-
music style, defined by tempo and historical circumstance; “wind ensemble”
is a configuration of performers; “Christian hip-hop” is philosophical
distinction; “Slovenian rock” a cultural and geographic one.
All of these are totally fine with us. Spend some time wandering around the
map and youʼll get a better sense of how these genres vary.
