Decided to listen to it out of curiosity.

It's really good. I listened to some Overkill a while back, and wasn't too impressed, but I really like this.

First of all, that song is way too long. And i really hate the conveyor line guitar riff.
Its the kind of song that is so bland that it makes me feel slightly annoyed.

This is what i';ve been thinking.

I'm seeing Overkill headline in a month with Vader, God Dethroned, Warbringer, Evile, Woe Of Tyrants and a bunch of local bands.

Since Overkill are headling can you guys recommend me some of their best songs? (I'm going to check out their new album due to the fact they'll probably play a couple songs off it)

Also best album of 2010: Blind Guardian's upcoming one which is coming out in fucking September!

FUCK YEAH

I only like their albums Feel the fire and Years of Decay.
Here's the title track from feel the fire, my favorite overkill song.

Have any of you guys head of Anata? They're some pretty awesome technical death metal. I highly suggest their album The Conductor's Departure.

Yep, been a fan for a while, I love that they're very progressive too.
The Infernal Depths of Hatred, I think it's their debut album is also really good.


This signature makes use of various clichés and/or 'emotional' lyrics/quotes, hopefully it makes me appear deep.

Well, if you don't like it, I won't force you to think otherwise but personally I find it to be a thrash highlight. I only like long thrash songs in occasions and The Green and Black is one of them. Great intro, fantastic riffs and a damn good solo.

I'll have to hear something from their new album that isn't Sacred before making such expectations. Last night, I listened to a sample of Reign of Terror from Rhapsody's new album and even with the harsh vocals, it sounds awesome! I have even higher expectations for their new album now.

Yep, I'm well aware of it. Should be around Halloween. Well, when else? :P They better make up for that atrocity known as Unarmed.

Gamma Ray also released their new stuff in january.

It was alright but with a title like To the Metal, I was expecting something more.

It's funny that Gamma Ray doesn't come out when we talk about cheesy bands. It seems that Manowar is just so cheesy, there is not room left for other bands like Gamma Ray.

I actually prefer Land of the Free II over To the Metal. I thought it was a really good album overall.

I have never heard of To The Metal, is a Gamma Ray album?

Weird.

Anyway I think their new stuff is leaning towards more traditional heavy metal like iron maiden than power metal.

Which I don't mind, LOTFP2 was good IMO.

No, Edguy are hilarious.

I don't like them that much. Although The Metal Opera by Avantasia was awesome.

Yeah, they released the new album in January, it has some good songs, plus, Michael Kiske sang on one of their songs.

Thin Air
Summernight Horizon
Dreaming Light
Everything
Angels Walk Among Us
Presence
A Simple Mistake
Get Off, Get Out

and I, for one, am looking forward to it, altough I'm not sure if I like the title.

Yeah, I wouldn't say they are cheesy.
Avantasia may be a little more cheesy though..
But Rhapsody is only CheeseWiz compared to GammaRay :P

I don't find GammaRay cheesy, after all, it was their frontman that helped "invent" the whole power metal thing with Helloween, but I guess it's a matter of opinion.

First 3 = Metal.
Last 3 = Not Metal.

We ask for a list of 10 Metal bands, so I'd say give us another 7 and then the powers that be can decide on your fate.

Agreed. First rule you should learn as a possible Metal Heller, no nu-metal or metalcore. The others may possibly tear out your heart and offer it to Satan. Prog, Death, Black, Thrash, and Stoner bands=Great.

He doesn't know that though. The rules have changed considerably since GC's first post.

Prog, Death, Black, Thrash, and Stoner bands=Great.

Metal = great. It doesn't need to be specific.
Also, you're forgetting plenty of genres in that pretty narrow list.

Those are just genres that pop up a lot in conversations here, so if he/she wanted to not be totally lost, some basic knowledge would be helpful. 7/10 conversations around here mostly have to do with those 5 genres.

We rarely talk about prog or thrash in this thread with the exception of a few bands...

Plus a lot of power metal knowledge would be needed.
