Okay I figured we totally needed a metal topic cause all I can find (nowadays) on metal-centric radio is GGGRGADSHH DFUUGKH GOOOORRRR nonsense and lots of screaming.

Either do one band at a time or just post links to songs, doesn't matter. Short synopsis or none, also doesn't matter.

Since I'm probably gonna be on the more controversial end here, I will probably go through and point out some of the less well-known things in my collection that you guys can form the judgment for.

For the moment, I'll bring Saxon to the table. They basically follow the same progression and timeline as Judas Priest, but were usually seen as more of a follower behind them, and overall a lot less popular. Their very first stuff in the 70s were very solid albums which nobody looking at present-day metal would consider to be metal whatsoever, ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMzhmsWwxrM ) but is still pretty damn heavy for the year.

Then with time and evolving recording technology, their sound came through a lot clearer, ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iuERjZChCpM ) and the "rock" image they presented thenselves with very slowly moved to the back, but is still around in the present day material ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CyVd-EFKFEk ) ...And even though the band seems to have basically lost none of its steam, the production levels have gotten so high that it sounds like the audio equivalent of a dog that's been bred too much, and has all these horrible health problems.

Because I like weird shit.

And the band I'm named after has an incredibly generic, "power chords from start to finish" sound. And I listen to a handful of bands that don't take themselves seriousky, and probably do it to troll the ones that do it seriousky, but are still way out of proportion.

Because that always seemed like something guitar hero people invented to try and come up with something that'd be the equivalent of one of those impossible mario levels

Dragonforce is to power metal what Metallica is to general metal.

Everyone loves the shit out of it in spite of the fact it's terrible, and therefore it's the only example from the genre that people really hear about.

Dragonforce takes itself to extremes that make it sound like it's making a joke about itself.

Lol, Pandora just played the band named Hibria. Power metal. I didn't like it.

I'll try to put this shortly.

When I first was introduced to Dragonforce, I was presented with this song.

I was like, okay, I can kinda live with this. So I grabbed the album, and found gems like this song. My thoughts were "Okay, this intro is kinda cool. Building up nicely... Wait, has this transitioned into the other song I'd already listened to? I'm confused."

After not much more research into their stuff, I discovered this song. Now that I had realized it was all the same shit with very slightly different lyrics, I had to part ways with them.

And with that, I leave you with this. (TURN YOUR VOLUME DOWN!)

I don't mind the lead singer, it's just that the instrumentals are utter shit. Jesus tapdancers in drag, man

And it IS the same song over and over. That's hilarious

The biggest problem with Dragonforce is probably the drums, followed very very shortly by the guitars. The bass can't be judged, because the other two are so fucking smothering all over the sound that it might as well not be there.

Hibria has the opposite problem. Their singer has a very small range of vocals that are pretty kickass, and all the rest of his range is annoying as fuck. Case: HIBRIA - Tiger Punch - Official Video

Vocals suck from start to finish, but the music otherwise eats my face, in the best way. (Also the special effects in this video are hilariously bad.)

dragonforce has the most generic rhythm playing ever - actually, i'm not much a fan of power metal in general because i don't like the rhythm playing

but as far as controversial goes i listen to death metal so... yeah.

That song is a lot better than the one Pandora gave me.

I just...hate "new music sound". Laughing Out Loud
