Actually the guy kinda prides himself in having an eclectic taste. Listens to jazz, hip-hop, alternative rock etc.

I'm sure he does pride himself in listening to all different types of crappy music. All Opeth fans do.

LOL

I've had the same impression of fans of Opeth and Meshuggah. The mid 90s is apparently when good music started. Anything older, unless you're Iron Maiden or Metallica or something, then you're nothing. Especially if you play something that's not hip anymore. It happens with every generation, but fans of Opeth and Meshuggah take it to the extreme by acting elitist.

In general, 80s are a divisive time among more recent metal fans. Not just extreme metal fans. Melodic metal fans do that too. And people in general act elitist when discussing music (especially heavy metal), everyone's a critic, yet they show their true colours by not caring enough to dig any deeper than Master of Puppets or whatever. And that's fine too. Not everyone likes everything. But then don't go talking about it, or pretending to know all about metal. Let alone write reviews, or *gasp* histories of heavy metal. I think I read someone claiming Metallica was the first heavy metal band.  Sad

It's like you asking someone who painted the Mona Lisa. If the answer is "Da Vinci", bother not. That person for sure won't know enough to discuss Leonardo properly.

The Calling jumps out the most for me.

I don't really see them as Maiden knock-offs, either. Arch doesn't sound much like him at all. I'd say the operatic, wailing nature of the vocals is definitely influenced by the kind of stuff Maiden were doing, but Dickinson and Arch are really apples and oranges to me. The styles of riffing and soloing are also very different.

I can understand some Maiden comparison. I checked out "Damnation" again since it was so far ahead in the poll, and right at the beginning I thought "Remember Tomorrow." At times, the singer does sound a bit like Dickinson. Like you mentioned, during the wails. You're right, they are not that close to be a knock-off, though.

I voted for the title track.

Honorable mentions go to Soldier Boy (even if the song title brings that wretched similarly named rapper to mind), Damnation, and Kiss of Death.

You are very much the definition of what you falsely accuse others of around here.

The reviews on Metal Archives coming up trashing a lot of classic albums make me think of a former Metal Archives reviewer named bitterman, who gave every review a 0%. Of course, a lot of the albums were ones of polarizing albums in the metal community, but a lot of albums he reviewed I personally like.

He was later banned from reviewing albums.

Here are some of his reviews:

Do explain since you insist on getting personal with me here.

A lot of bands at the time sounded like Iron Maiden, oftentimes more so than the first Fates Warning album. Regardless, it doesn't matter, since a band such as Malice seems to get away with the fact that they're Judas Priest clones, albeit a good one.

No need to. Others before me have done a fine job at stating the obvious. Happy trails.

So you make a cheap dig and then run away when I ask you to explain?

I'm not even sure what you are saying that I "falsely accuse" others of.

If anyone has "stated the obvious" about me it must've been years ago because I don't recall having read it.

Did I insult you personally? Because you are me.
