TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: I Mastodon a few years back as an opening act when they were on the Ozzfest tour. After a song and a half it was time to go get beer. Zzz

MoronLessOff: bhcompy: sotua: Ringshadow: Metal? Ohhhh *rubs hands together*

My hot list:
Opeth, Dream Theater, Iced Earth, Symphony X, Nightwish, Circus Maximus, Dream Evil, King Diamond, Orphaned Land, Lacuna Coil, UnSun, Nemesea, Dragonforce, Within Temptation, Avantasia.

Probably I missed some. Don't feel like going and looking at the CD collection right now.

Dragonforce is the Hannah Montana of metal.

No, Dragonforce is the Spinal Tap of power metal.

No, Dragon Force is one of the best games ever.

No, Dragonforce is the band for folks too young to know who Helloween was.

Mastodon's earlier albums are incredible, Blood Mountain and Leviathan are some of the most intense stuff I've heard.

That being said, The Hunter was a real let down.

Also, check out Liturgy. Didn't really read TFA, so pardon if they were mentioned, but they're definitely worth looking up.


/Frontman is a total pretentious douchenozzle. He has a musical/philosophical manifesto called "Transcendental Black Metal"
//Still think they're great.

Does my INTENSE MUSICAL ATTITUDE scare you, and make you think of DESTRUCTION and the DEVIL? Then you are are an IDIOT.

If a guy with a beard and black plastic glasses likes it, its probably hipster metal. If a 17 year old kid with long hair and a way too big T-shirt likes it, its probably metal metal.

ZAZ: True metal sounds like metal even if you play it on the fruitiest of fruity Casio keyboards

Folk-rocker Al Stewart describes his song "Antarctica" as metal even when played on an acoustic guitar.

Aha Al Stewart in a metal thread. Unrelated but funny: Apparently the guy who plays Black Dynamite's favorite song is Year of The Cat, to the point that he learned it on piano, and plays it to his friends when they come over.

Also, for you metalheads:

Need more Megadeth inspired music. From riffs, solos, to vocal stylings. So many new bands have great musical writing, but the lead singer just screams. Wish In Flames would pick up a good singer...

Mastadon owned my face in concert multiple times. Strangely enough, I have a weird mutation where I am able to like more than one genre. Isis, Faith no More, Queensryche, Pelican, Red Sparrows and Anthrax (a la Sound of White Noise) are all farking awesome.
