And you simply cannot compare Under Reprisal to Come Clarity or A Sense Of Purpose. In Flames have gone core in the worst possible way and Threat Signal are one of the rare bands to make good core.
I'm not comparing bands, i'm comparing the fan bases.
The fact that he failed with pop bands isn't making power metal less pop sounding.
I remember the time in high school when I could ear stupid bitches complainning about how metal was agressive and bad. But when I would ask if they like Stratovarius they would all go "Yeah they are very good!!"
Yeah, I call bullshit.
There is no way in hell they know who stratovarius is.
I think that Power Metal is the most commercial metal genre.
Melodic Death Metal, dur.
I know a fuckload of people who hate power metal even more than the harsher metal genres.
Which is not making them less good or less innovative. In fact I like power metal, but I just see them as easy-listenning metal.
Easy listening metal is an oxymoron.
The metal opera albums were far more mainstream than the scarecrow.How is that?
Just generic dragonforce, hammerfall, etc. style.
They use such generic and stereotypical guitar riffs, sounds, etc.
The Scarecrow is pretty much the same... I mean... Alice Cooper, Kamelot's vocalist... that girl in "What kind of love", Michael Kiske.
The musicians don't affect the kind of music.
This = / = this.
The metal opera albums are boring and generic.
Scarecrow is interesting and innovative.
The Scarecrow at least tries to be meaningful.I really like The Scarecrow, but you should go read some of the reviews about it on Metal-Archives. Not everybody seems to find "meaning" in the work of Tobias Sammet.
I never understood why the metal community love the MO's but hates the scarecrow, the ladder is sooooooo much better.
Are you kidding? If you don't shit on who you were years ago you'll never grow.So everytime you look back you think: "What a fucking douche I was!"
Not so much "Douche" but more "Idiot"
I won't diss all the bands that got me first into metal... Kalmah, Slipknot, CoB.
Even though they are pure shit?
Disturbed was one of the bands that got me into metal, I openly admit they are god awful today.
If I don't like a band anymore i'm not going to say "Well they got me into good bands, so kudos to them!"
My little brother listens to Fred Penner, he's not going to say in 10 years "BOY I DON'T LIKE HIM ANYMORE, BUT I STILL RESPECT FRED PENNER FOR MAKING LITTLE KID MUSIC WITH NO MEANING"
Even for a power fag? :P
I know more power metal bands that I do bands of any other genre, but that doesn't change the fact I like other genres more these days.
