Folk metal is perhaps my favorite type.

Well I'll be damned. Maybe our resident Steve Vai clone really did play for the original Highwaymen.

I don't get bored with it.
My main playlist consists of: After Forever, Ambeon, Assemblage 23, Avantasia (!!!!), Axenstar, Dragonforce, Edguy (!!!!), Elvenking, Epica (!!!!), Evergrey, Freedom Call, Galloglass, Gamma Ray, Hammerfall (!!!), Hanzel Und Gretyl, Human Fortress, Iced Earth, Iron Fire, Satch, Petrucci, Kamelot, Luca Turilli, Lunatica, Nightwish, Rhapsody of Fire, Savatage, Secret Sphere, Shadows Fall, Sonata Arctica, Vai, Stratovarius, Therion, Within Temptation, and some more I can't remember.
I can't stand black metal. If the vocals sound like Satan's spawn coming out of the pits of hell, I probably won't like it
I want to hear of arrows flying, swords crashing, wizards plotting, and falling into the looking glass.


Turisas - Stand Up And Fight

Tyr - Hold The Heathen Hammer High

Alestorm - Keelhauled

Wilderun - How Stands The Glass Around?

etc.

There was no evolution, just a full stop crash and the start into what was called grunge. Then every emotionally unstable kid who could play 3 chords decided to make music.

When I was playing in the 1980's, I played a lot like Vai and was mistaken for him a few times. Lynch still rocks and is out blowing people away.



If Lynch is marginal I better get my hearing checked. Rather listen to him than Vai any day. Include the rest like Lee, Zakk. Sweep picking sounds like shit btw.

Quality musicians in general are a dying breed. All the current 'music' stars are nothing more than vapid lip-synchers.

I love Iced Earth, and John has crazy picking skills, but he has also been writing the same song over and over for the past 10 years and passing it off as new albums.

Aye.

And the band just isn't the same without Barlow at the helm.

Thank you. Saved me the trouble.
Lots of clean harmonies with not a whole lot of effects. Clean metal sound, reminds me of the Adrian Smith /Dave Murrary combo of some little Metal band with a well known name.

Holy shit...That was awesome.

See them live. They tend to attract a very intellectual crowd. Excellent stage presence and simple light show and it is all sorts of awesome.

The way Jerry Cantrell has kept AIC going is nothing short of heroic.
