19:12 - ANGEL REAPER "Metalheads dont die! They just jam in the great gig in the sky!" :D
18:53 - Carrion Misery Same for me, but it is the reverse. I dreaded power metal until I started to sing along. The pure skill/talent involved is very inspiring.
18:49 - Apothecary A good 4-5 years ago I used to hate extreme vocals in metal, til I tried them out myself and realized how much effort and talent really goes into them. Loved extreme metal ever since :)
18:41 - Carrion Misery It's funny how we can point this stuff out, but I know so many people could care less lol. That's why I love metal so much since there's so much to converse about.
18:37 - EMols86 Carrion Misery, I was just about to say the same thing about lyrical themes defining a genre, because they do not. Maybe some themes are very common in certain styles, but it doesn't define the style...
18:34 - EMols86 Look at doom bands like Candlemass, Solstice, Isole, Krux, Solitude Aeternus, 40 Watt Sun and Cathedral. Not exactly the same styles, but all clean vocals without growls. I rest my case. :-)
18:33 - Apothecary Honestly I dunno why you got swarmed for that. Piece Of Time is probably the most thrash-y Atheist album, the whole proggy/technical side of the band started with Unquestionable Presence, really
