23:35 - Apothecary I'd love to see Gentle Giant on here. Not sure how well that'd fly though. When it comes to those older, nonmetal bands it's usually a question of "how much did they influence metal's development?"

23:33 - Nimlot Jethro Tull as well, so how about some Gentle Giant?
23:32 - Apothecary Still a rather silly statement, even if you are joking. Plenty of stuff is featured here, including King Crimson as far as old prog rock goes
