Amon Amarth is a Melodic Viking Death metal band from Sweden that was started in 1992. They kick major ass, and have well written lyrics. Seriously, Dragonforce
could learn a thing or two from the songwriter. They have an excellent sound, and they are one of the best heavy metal bands of modern times. This is a band that TRUE metal fans appreciate.
Amon Amarth is a band with music that reminds all the TRUE metal fans why we love this genre.
Dragonforce is a power metal
band that somehow managed to gain a huge fan base and a ton of media attention, even though better bands exist. Dragonforce isn't a terrible band, however their fan base has caused them to become vastly overrated, turning the group into one big fatass moon that is now blocking the better bands from coming into the light. Their vocalist also sounds like he needs to go to a different genre, as his voice doesn't fit metal at all. Dragonforces guitarists are quite talented actually, but they aren't quite as good as the fans make them out to be.
When recording in the studio, Dragonforce manages to achieve an epic feeling to their music, however their live performances are probably among the sloppiest of metal bands today.
Dragonforce fan "Hey dood! Did you see Dragonforce live! Oh man, that was the most kickass thing i've ever seen!!!"
Set "Yeah, if by kickass you mean sloppy riffs and a singer who can't sing or keep up with the music."
Dragonforce fan "Shut up! Dragonforce is the heaviest metal known to man!!"
Set "O rly? Is that what you think? Nice job proving you don't listen to very much metal. GTFO."
Pop music is probably the biggest waste of time this side of Rap. Mostly, the singers are stupid teens with no talent singing about love or what a great day it is. Pop artists never touch on serious or meaningful topics, as it would alienate their fanbase.
Set "Pop music was created by Satan as a way to torture human beings and drive good music FURTHER underground."
Matt Barlow is the former Iced Earth lead vocalist. He has the best metal voice known to man, and is probably the main reason why the band kicked so much ass. He left after the events on 9/11 to peruse a career as a law enforcement officer. The fans of Iced Earth were extremely saddened by his departure, but support his decision to do whatever he wants with his life. Iced Earth currently has Tim "Ripper" Owens on vocals. Owens is not quite as good as Barlow was, but is still a solid vocalist.
Set "Did you know that the voice of Jesus sounds very similar to that of Matt Barlow's voice. The only difference is that Jesus's voice isn't as cool."
Blind Guardian is the best modern metal band this side of Iced Earth. Their music kicks major ass and they have consistently turned out quality albums without selling out like many band do. When Hansi Kürsch (The lead singer) and Jon Schaffer (Iced Earth frontman) created the Demons and Wizards albums, it was the most kickass sounding side project ever.
"Hell yeah! Blind Guardian fuckin' rules! BG And Iced Earth forever!"
Kataklysm, is a fucking awesome Death Metal band from Canada. Their recent albums have kicked more ass than Chuck Norris. Shadows and Dust, Serenity in Fire, and In the Arms of Devastation are awesome albums that any TRUE metal fan should take a look at.
Poser Metal fan "Dood! Liek, what's Kataklysm? Are they as brutal as Slipknot?"
Set "Slipknot couldn't hold a god damn candle to the greatness of this band. GTFO and go buy In the Arms of Devastation."
