Whoa Whoa Whoa back the train up. Nevermore is not power metal. Blind Guardian, Sonata Arctica and Stratovaraus are Power Metal... Big Difference.

Nevermore is almost impossible to classify but i think they are very doom metal sounding

A lot of those newer Norwegian black metal bands who live up to their music and burn churches suck though.

The guitar isn't necessarily impressive by today's standards, but that's like saying an Rx3 isn't impressive next to an rx8. In its day's it was one of the most impressive racing platforms ever and revolutionized the way racing cars are defined...

Sure The ol' school boy doesn't compare to modern gods like Tom Morello, Dimebag Darrell, or Oslo but in his day he was amazing, he was one of the fist to do what he did.

They might not be "real" as in, religion haters, but they are a great band, especially live.

Favorite bands:

Slipknot: Of their four Albums there's probably only five or six songs I don't really care for. The band has its moments of greatness but recently hasn't gelled as a creative unit and for that reason All Hope Is Gone, might be referring to the band's longevity. A friend of mine interviewed Shawn Crahan before their world tour and his toughts echoed my own, the album wasn't cohesive and was too much in different directions. That said, excellent drummer, guitarists and vocals.

In Flames: Old In Flames>>>>>>>>>>> New In Flames, don't get me wrong Come Clarity isn't a bad album and neither is their latest offering, but Whoracle was a modern freakin' master piece. Seeing them in a month

KillSwitch Engage: Brilliant band

Soilwork: Probably the best band to come out of Sweden, their sound is unique and fits nicely in the genre, Older albums are great for those that love more thrash, newer albums fit more in with the new wave of american metal and more progressive sounds.

Reccomend: Wherever Thorns may Grow, Stabbing the Drama, Follow the Hollow, Departure Plan/

Lamb Of God: Probably the best pure Heavy Metal band out there right now, their music doesn't preach ********, the vocals are heavy yet compliment the music and their guitarists and drummers would probably be up in the upper echelon of talent, cohesion and writing right now. They are the push that makes the new wave of american metal move. Wrath comes out in under a month.

If you haven't heard of this band I'd recommend: Laid to Rest, Omerta, Walk With me in Hell

Their last album defined crap. I loved Laid To Rest but Sacrament defined the phrase "deep throat".

That is the most metal news I have ever read.

In other news I must find some way to drive to Des Moines to see Meshuggah and Cynic. Why does Des Moines get them and Kansas City doesn't? ***.

I love King Crimson. In The Court of the Crimson King is probably my favorite prog record ever. Tool isn't the only band that rips them off. Extremely, extremely underrated. They basically invented the sound a lot of people identify as prog rock, even if they weren't the first band to actually play it.

It depends on what you like in a metal band, but that being said, I didn't exactly love Sacrament, but it had its moments. Its a middle of the road album and yes Laid to Rest is the ****.

Tool did not "rip off" King Crimson. In fact they share very little in common, other than they both have long songs. Don't take my word for it:

Quote:
I happen to be a Tool fan. The members of Tool have been generous enough to suggest that Crimson has been an influence on them. Adam Jones asked me if I could detect it in their music, and I said I couldn’t. I can detect more Tool influence in King Crimson, than I can hear King Crimson in Tool.
That was from Robert Fripp.

Between the Buried and Me are one of my favorite bands to listen to due to their technicality.
Recommended Songs: Mordecai, Selkies: The Endless Obsession, All Bodies, Sun of Nothing

Isis was a band I started listening to several years ago and they have gradually progressed into being of my favorite. The music is beautifully complex and they keep getting better with every album.
Recommended Songs: Wills Dissolve, Wrists of Kings, Not in Rivers but in Drops, Syndic Calls

Agalloch mixes folk tunes, thrash and progressive metal with dark, brooding vocals that mixes together amazingly well.
Recommended Songs: As Embers Dress The Sky, A Desolation Song, Not Unlike The Waves

Acid Bath can best be described I guess by calling it swamp metal. They blend so many styles together and were one of the bands that really got me into metal.
Recommended Songs: The Blue, God Machine, Toubabo Koomi, Grave Flower

Intronaut is another band I got into around the time of Isis. Very complex, bass-driven progressive metal with a dual-vocal attack. Very groove laden and technical.
Recommended Songs: Fragments of Character, They (As In Them), Teledildonics, Any Port

Meshuggah is another great import from Sweden. Some of the finest progressive metal out there and insanely brutal. One of my favorites.
Recommended songs: I, Combustion, Dehumanization, Rational Gaze

Mastodon. Can't go wrong with progressive Southern metal, especially when they make a concept album around Moby Dick.
Recommended Songs: Seabeast, March of the Fire Ants, Sleeping Giant, This Mortal Coil

Always A Good Listen
Glass Casket Brutal speed/grind metal that has two members of BTBAM in its ranks.
Recommended Songs: Pencil Lead Syringe, Post Traumatic Death

Every Time I Die Just a fun band to listen to and you can feel the energy and excitement. Not for everyone but a particularly fond band of mine.
Recommended Songs: Ebolarama, The New Black, Buffalo Gals, L'Astronaut

Clutch A fun, Southern, bluesy band that puts on a hell of a live show.
Recommended Songs: Spacegrass, Mr. Shiny Cadillacness, Texan Book of the Dead, Mice and Gods

Tool What can be said about Tool that hasn't already been said?
Recommended Songs: The Pot, Opiate, Flood, Vicarious

The Ocean I just love this band. Progressive, technical, thoughtful, amazing.
Recommended Songs: Statherian, Stenian, Rhyacian

Will continue later...
I saw Isis open for Tool in 2006 at the Target Center. Good band.

Lateralus live was one of the highlights of my life. Especially the epic ending. Absolutely incredible. Vicarious also kicked ass.

I have quite a spectrum of bands that I like... not quite a metal fan but not quite a rock fan either...

Tool, Muse, Led Zeppelin, Clapton, Hendrix, Incubus, Buckethead, Queen, Metallica, RHCP are some of my favorites..

Best Buckethead song is Nottingham Lace, in my opinion, with Jordan being the runner up.

Nottingham Lace is a solid song.

My favorite Buckethead song is easily Soothsayer. I absolutely love that song. I could listen to it all day.

I feel like I've heard Jordan too many damn times because of GH2. My roommate always played that song.

Seems pretty reasonable to me.

Also, there was this disclaimer:

"Please note, this is an early sketch of the characters done by Brendon Small and Tommy Blacha, in which Pickles the Drummer has a much stronger resemblence to Devin Townsend than he does in the production version of Metalocaplyse"
