Theres not really a lot you can do with power metal. Where other bands are broadening genres power metal stays the same.

Power metal, power metal never changes.

If you stick with metal, you'll probably start liking the more brutal stuff. Three years ago I thought death metal sounded awful, but I got really into Opeth for their proggier parts, just sort of tolerating the growls and stuff, but after a while I started to appreciate what it did for the music. Now I play Cryptopsy while I'm eating my breakfast. It just takes a while to overcome your initial reaction and be able to break it apart. It's a gradual transition for sure, though.

The facebook page is pretty funny. Metallica are the tabloid trash of the rock world.

Lots of dedications to Cliff, hit em where it hurts I guess.

Early heads-up for Londoners: Agalloch are playing the Underworld on 11th April next year. It's going to sell out (if last time is anything to go by) so get your tickets soon. It's their only UK date, too

Got mine. Any goons also heading along? I don't know if my Scottish mates will make it down.

Plus 16 is a steal.

Needs Pelican and Animals As Leaders. Would they fit into a 'post metal' or prog section?

I personally would split black into new wave and older stuff, ie old: Burzum, Mayhem, etc; new: Wolves in the Throne Room, Nachtmystium, Watain.

Also a founding/historical band list? Death, Bathory, Venom, etc.

I wouldnt know where to draw a line under it.
