Shredder87;331083 said:Black Metal pack? You put Dimmu?! Immortal, Mayhem, and Dissection(THEY'RE NOT DEATH METAL!!!) would rule.
Shredder87;331110 said:Are they? I thought Cradle took that honor. Well after Stormblast they started to tread a less black metal trail, along with Cradle's first album.
instantdeath999;331137 said:A little of it all... the more variety, the better.And about dragonforce... yeah, I think through the fire and flames is a bit more popular then it needs to be. What pisses me off is that, when I was looking for cds the other day, I saw Inhuman Rampage, and it has a freaking sticker that say's, "featuring through the fire and flames from guitar hero 3!".... I mean, cmon. But I like dragonforce a lot, despite their criticism. Maybe once in a lifetime?
Onslaught_fei;331054 said:Hey I can remember when Power Metalheads celebrated Valley of the Damned and Sonic Firestorm as some fresh new Power Metal. Of course, a lot of people turned their heads when they signed to Roadrunner but they put out that great music video for TTFatF. Of course GH3 has spawned a lot of raving idiocy that pisses off a lot people (including myself) but in all fairness Dragonforce is power metal and the only power metal a lot of radio listerners/mainstream people know about. I listed them there for those who would be curious to play more songs by bands searching for an epic sound, metal shredding guitar solos, and clean vocals.I digress though, I do agree with you to a degree but I thought it would be identifiable to list them.
Ultimatum;332693 said:The lyrics have incredible amounts of cheese, and the guitars reek of ProTools. This is why I have affectionately dubbed them Studioforce.
DM725;332963 said:Yea I saw them open for Killswitch Engage in NYC and I was impressed at how fast their wrists were moving but not at how it sounded. They definately can't duplicate their albums which means Studioforce is definately an appropriate name.
nik15;336421 said:I'm surprised there wasn't a category for Viking/Folk metal.
Onslaught_fei;338068 said:Most Folk Metal is in Finnish, Norweigen, or Swedish. My favorites are Agalloch, Ensiferum, and arguably Wintersun. Problem is only big metalheads in the states get into Folk Metal, although it is popular in Europe.Viking Metal is often a part of a melodic death metal, power metal, or black metal band. I didnt include it for this reason as its not really a sub genre but a lyrical theme applied to an instrumental style.Id play either one ;p
