For me, Incantation/USDM clones are the worst. Mostly because there are so many of them, it is my favorite style of DM, and at least once in awhile one of them is excellent (meaning that I actually feel a motivation to sift through all the crap ones to locate some greatness). Of course every category has at least some worthwhile bands lurking in the pile...

There are many more genres suffering from the "cookie cutter band" disease. Orthodox BM and Discharge clones for example. But these 4 seem to be the most prominent offenders.

Anyway, which "clone genre" is the crappiest? Which has the worst ratio of garbage to quality? Discuss.

Kvltfago, Swedeath ,and Incuntation ripoffs seem to be a rather more recent trend, so I voted for Dickthrone ripoffs. It's been happening for long enough and is responsible for shit like this: http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Kukulcan/88382

Voted for the norse ones, though the Blasphemy etc are also annoying. But not as much as the norse ones.

Same here. I'm glad the Darkthrone clone trend seems to be dying down in recent years (or maybe it's just off my radar these days)..... But the Blasphemy clones are also really annoying. It takes a special something to capture the atmosphere of Blasphemy and the other original bands back them, and 90% of these newer bands don't have that something .

The only band worthy enough to be called a Darkthrone clone is Helsefyr.

A clone of a band I already don't like gets my vote, so Blasphemy it is.

Blasphemy clone bands easily...mostly I feel sorry for all those kids. Some of the most embarrassing crap I've heard.

Darkthrone ones are worst for me. Partly, perhaps, because that's the style of those four that I'm least interested in (with a few exceptions, including Darkthrone themselves). But also partly because I think there are more bands with no musical worth whatsoever that realized, "Hey, we can sound sorta like that with very little effort!" It takes a certain level of musical accomplishment to clone the other mentioned styles, even though the resulting songs may lack passion or creativity, but being fake-Darkthrone seems like a bastion for a lot of talentless hacks.

There's a fair number of bad bands doing the Blasphemy thing too, but not quite as many - or maybe some of them are better at obscuring their lack of skills behind the wall of noise.

What about the shitty orthodox clones? I have to go for the wargoatfaggots though, simply because the they aren't expressing anything other than faggotry.

I chose the Norsecore-clones because afaicr they've been around the longest and for every good darkclone there's been at least twenty bad ones.

My vote goes to Iceland, it all started with that overrated Flames Of Hell record featuring Mickey Mouse on vocals.

Darkclones due to the fact that they mostly copy the one band's one album, and because they make up most of the least heavy bands in metal.
