TheCrimsonSaint;1753438 said:Check their tribute to Dimebag Darrell, a song called Side of a Bullet. Great song, actually.
Ultimatum;1753525 said:I thought it was terrible and found it ironic that Nickelback was paying tribute to him.
TheCrimsonSaint;1737158 said:Kamelot is the best band that no one has ever heard of.
Also, Roy Khan is the best vocalist since Dio.
TheCrimsonSaint;1753536 said:Different strokes. Me and you rarely agree on anything anyways.:p
Xaris3514;1753642 said:Of the Japanese bands that I've heard of the only ones that are worth anything are Galneryus, X Japan, Abingdon Boys School and Dir En Grey.
Runesmith;1753665 said:Have you checked out Shonen Knife, Guitar Wolf, Pizzicato 5, or The Black Mages?
Xaris3514;1753551 said:Its very hard to be unheard of when you're one of the most popular bands in the power metal scene. It just pisses me off that of all bands that started in the power metal scene, the one that rose to mainstream success is one of the worst.This, however, should be undeniable fact.
TheCrimsonSaint;1753943 said:This post confuses me. Kamelot sucks, but Roy Khan is awesome? How'd you work that one out?
instantdeath999;1753994 said:Dragonforce are popular past Through the Fire and Flames?
Gowienczyk;1754007 said:Quite a bit; they toured in Ozzfest and were hoisted as 'metal gods & revisionists' by Kerrang magazine.
instantdeath999;1754030 said:I had heard of Dragonforce before Guitar Hero, but only because I was into power metal. And then, I had only heard Valley of the Damned, which I didn't think was that bad. I thought Guitar Hero gave them that extra burst... when their music became so cheesy and wanktastic it became unbearable.
Xaris3514;1754042 said:Valley of the Damned isn't bad. It shows their talent and potential, but the copy/paste bull**** that Sonic Firestorm started makes them more money and gets them more popularity. To be completely honest, if I considered any band a sell out, it would be DragonForce.
Gowienczyk;1754062 said:Sonic Firestorm was a furthering and a improvement from Valley of the Damned. If you don't want Dragonforce's gimmick in power emtal just listen to Cryonic Temple and stop complaining.
instantdeath999;1754072 said:I actually really liked Sonic Firestorm. I heard it after somewhat liking Through the Fire and Flames. Then I heard Inhuman Rampage, and event though I liked a few songs, they started to run together.
Xaris3514;1754076 said:I will give you that Sonic Firestorm had its moments, but I still say that's when they realized that people will eat up the same super fast simplistic stuff that Inhuman Rampage put out.As for Cryonic Temple, they are just so.... meh. I'll take bands like Kamelot, Blind Guardian and Sonata Arctica over them any day.
Gowienczyk;1754081 said:CT's not great. But lol @ liking BG.
instantdeath999;1754087 said:Well, unlike Dragonforce, they can perform their music live.
Gowienczyk;1754091 said: Dragonforce is remotely interesting!
