Yeah, I meant SBM, I wasn't being clear enough, but thanks a lot. I'm really enjoying Abigail Williams.

I think instead of finding new bands when I'm running out of music, i'll just check out more albums on the current bands that I'm listening to.

Speaking of symphonic black metal, I decided to get Dimmu Borgir's Enthrone Darkness Triumphant on CD so I'll be getting it in a few days time. Feel free to hate me all you want.

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.


Make war, not love.

You should really check out the bands that I have listed though...
Cast Into Fields of Evil Pleasure by Illnath(illnath) is pretty much one of the best SBM albums I've ever heard. In The Shadow Of A Thousand Suns by Abigail Williams is another very good album you should check out.

This band had a few good moments, really. They are not the best, but hey! They are in Hellboy's soundtrack, how much more mainstream can you get? :)

I hate In Flames new albums and love Threat Signal's first...

Yeah, I fucking swear. There was this girl I went to High School with and a guy I worked with at the grocery store who just wasn't into metal at all, but he knew Stratovarius and told me he really liked Millenium and shits.

I know a fuckload of people who hate power metal even more than the harsher metal genres.

Biggest reason being that they don't like the vocals. Because power metal is veryyyyy melodic, it has very simple song structures (almost poppish), Radio-friendly vocals and all that kind of stuff.


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.

Hell no!

Agalloch, Edguy, Avantasia, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Symphony X, Sonata Arctica, Dream Theater, Helloween, Mago De Oz, Nightwish, Kamelot, Katatonia, Liquid Tension Experiment, Jacobs Dream, Allen-Lande, Altaria, Voyager and I can't be bothered to list more bands event though there is a shitload of bands that I would consider easy liustenin metal...
Not easy for the un-educated pop fans and their limited comprehension of arts. But I have a few friends who are not into metal and they still like bands from this list

The musicians don't affect the kind of music.
The metal opera albums are boring and generic.
Scarecrow is interesting and innovative.

I know about all this. But even if Metal Opera sounds more generic for the power metal scene, The Scarecrow sounds very pop.

Not so much "Douche" but more "Idiot"

I don't care about the insult used. The fact stands... you are dissing what you once was.


I won't diss all the bands that got me first into metal... Kalmah, Slipknot, CoB.
Even though they are pure shit?

They are not pure shit. Kalmah and CoB are still amongs the bands I like to listen to. And Slipknot, if Corey Taylor was not such a pretenious hypocritical bitch, would be a better band.
And shit or not, they are what got me first into metal. I know that if my first contacts with metal would have been Ulver and Benighted, I'm quite sure that I wouldn't have traded my Sum 41 albums for Bergtatt and Insane Cephalic Production. Slipknot was like an "in-between" a bridge between popular music and metal.


Disturbed was one of the bands that got me into metal, I openly admit they are god awful today.

Disturbed... shit? Can't see what's so bad about them. Ten Thousand First was a good album. They may not be truezzz but they still write good alternative metal stuff.

Anyway...Finally one of my favorite band will come in Quebec: Rammstein! I know that a lot of people doesn't like them or doesn't consider them as a metal band but the old stuff was nice. Rosenrot CD was 'a major pain in the ass'' for my ears.

Hey the guys, I would like to know: which artist has the nicest corpse paint???
Stian Thoresen- as known as Shagrath from the band Dimmu Borgir

On the subject of Avantasia, I still need to get The Metal Opera and I'm sure Nev still insists I get it no matter what he's listening to right now. Yes AniMetal, you may not like the albums but I've heard a few songs on there and they sound very good.

I never said they are the best at all. I'm not going to call them the best black metal band or even the best metal band but from what I heard in Enthrone Darkness Triumphant, I'm sure I'll enjoy the album. Also, it's come to my attention that I'm slowly getting more and more black metal albums. That will actually be my 4th black metal album and I'll probably get more sometime soon. That does remind me to get more Bathory as I still have only Hammerheart.

I never thought you were saying they were the best bm band, I was just giving my opinion. And also, about the part where you talk about have more bm in your library. I would not put black metal and symphonic black metal in the same genre.
Just like Death Metal and Melodeath, I see them as two completely different genres and they usualy don't have the same fanbase. It's like Heavy Metal and Doom Metal, they may have the same roots, but they are completely different genres now.

Every genre of Metal and Heavy Metal has the same roots. Heavy Metal is the roots, yo. And its the sunshine and nutrients. And in the case of Manowar, its the testosterone. Which has nothing to do with plant life, but to not mention Manowar is such a conversation would be very unbecoming.

Indeed, cause otherwise they wouldn't be metal...

What I meant is that if black metal and sbm came from the same place, they are now totally different genres of metal and I don't see these two genres as members of the same family.

Avantasia is pretty win. Even though Tobias kinda looks like Billy Ray Cyrus. Lmao.

Scarecrow was pretty enjoyable... I've listened to both Part 1 and 2 of The Metal Opera, but I like the one with No Return better. Whichever that is.

Until I've listened to enough black metal and symphonic black metal, I am not going to agree with your statement. For now, symphonic black metal is relevant enough to black metal.

Just like Death Metal and Melodeath

Now that I can understand.
