    Also, everyone knows you can't fight the forces of darkness while growling. Everyone knows that. We also all know that only higher pitched vocals will kill dragons. This is all pretty much science.

    In case you're looking to make a serious counter argument, it's just a joke.
    Bah! Keep that pretty boy stuff. I like my guitars tuned lower than the underworld and my vocals deeper than Satan's armpits.

    I know, I'm just pissing about. Don't tell anybody but I actually like some Angra.

    Dude, I get you like music that is different from the music I like, and I'm okay with that. My problem is that's just unsanitary. You should probably take a shower to wash off whatever you got on you in those two places.

    Shower with GLORY with shower heads made of STEEL!

    Just don't use the conditioner made of the swords of heroes. I did that once, and I still have cuts from it. Fun Fact: holy steel doesn't dull, neither does the steel enchanted with the power of ancient dragons.

    Probably the last secret message I'll leave, but I'm having way too much fun with this argument.
    I also completely didn't notice what you put for your location until I made this post. Nice Slayer reference!

    Eh, I'm an unashamed fan of those girly gothic/symphonic metal bands. If anything, they tend to be looked down on even more than your usual power metal. But metal is a huge genre, and you can obviously listen to whatever you want. Can't like every genre of metal equally. Anyway, anyone who tells you the likes of Iced Earth or Blind Guardian isn't real metal don't know what they're talking about.

    Power metal can be silly, but that's not intrinsic to the genre; it's up to each individual band. Same with quality. Anyway, not all bands need to be as serious as, say... Cannibal Corpse

    Oh man, I love this band. The only reason this wasn't in my best-of list is that I liked their previous album better. But yeah, Sorcerer is great. They do the epic Candlemass-doom so well.

    Subrosa AND Sleep! That's not crazy, that's a good investment!

    As to the previous conversation, elitists are silly in every genre, and anyone who tells you what you should or shouldn't listen to can be safely ignored.

    Power metal is one of my favorite subgenres, but among those favorites it does have the highest crap to not crap ratio. When it's good, it can be great, when it's bad, it's often actively grating, whereas lesser thrash and death metal records are usually just dull.

    Oh man, I love this band. The only reason this wasn't in my best-of list is that I liked their previous album better. But yeah, Sorcerer is great. They do the epic Candlemass-doom so well.
    I got into them with the new record, and only recently picked up Shadow of the Inverted Cross. So far I think I prefer Crowning of the Fire King, but we'll see.

    I hear a lot of Symphony X in their melodies as well. The singer sounds like a less raspy Russel Allen.

    So there's a new Drudkh album coming. That's always good news. Their previous ones were... well, pretty much all the same. But I like what they do so I'm interested in the new one.

    I got the new Sinistro. Damn it's good. I'm all about that vocalist... she's got such an amazing voice. That gothy/doomy music is also right up my alley.

    Been listening to the new Summoning as well. I'm not always in the mood of excessive synths, but Summoning scratches that itch like nothing else. Not sure if I like it more than Old Mornings Dawn, but it's damn good nonetheless.

    Heh, yeah you're right. I think I have a higher tolerance for crappy power metal though - not so much death metal and the like. I'm more likely to write off a DM band entirely if I don't like the vocalist's growls or whatever.

    I love this record. It made me go dig back through all of summoning's stuff. Definitely feels right in the new wave of popularity dungeon synth has been getting lately.

    I feel the same way. I think this is because it's a lot easier to do bad death metal than it is to do bad power metal. Like anyone can do drop tuned chugs with crappy growls. Power metal has something of a bar of entry (Not saying of course that all power metal is good or performed by great musicians though)
