    I disagree, listen to Shudder to Think and Raze, those songs sound power to me!

    I have listened to those songs. Despite being fairly good songs, there's nothing power metal about them. Listen to a band like Blind Guardian and compare them to literally any Exodus song. The riffs are of a different style, vastly different vocal delivery, and don't even get me started on the solos.

    Still, I doubt my saying that will mean anything to you so I'll just leave it at that. In any case, search out Exodus' earlier material if you haven't yet.

    I love Blind Guardian, Hansi has the best voice in the history of time.

    Don't worry, it's all good. I have heard their earlier stuff, and it's pretty good. If I'm not mistaken, they have a new lead singer because the original one died. If I'm wrong, let me know.

    Exodus have had a couple different vocalists. The one who died was Paul Baloff, the vocalist on Bonded By Blood (generally considered Exodus' best). Steve Sousa is the vocalist normally associated with Exodus, but was kicked out of the band shortly after they released Tempo of the Damned. The new guy is Rob Dukes. He's good, but I personally think he tries too hard to be Baloff.

    Exodus is Thrash, not Power.

    Listen to a Blind Guardian song, then listen to an Exodus song.

    THERE IS A DIFFERENCE.

    No offense to you Ragna (you're one cool dude), but I trust Clou'd opinion about it more than yours, so I'm sticking with power/thrash.

    Who cares about what genre Iced Earth is? They still fucking own, regardless.

    In reply to Cyrus_Ramses, #42:

    While I appreciate the compliment:

    most power/thrash (like Iced Earth and Metal Church) is much closer to thrash than power and it's vastly more accurate to deem a power/thrash band thrash than power. The only thing that's "power" about most power/thrash bands are the vocalists. There are exceptions of course, like with Meliah Rage, but Iced Earth isn't one of them.


    That's what I said earlier to apple. I realize that Iced Earth had a large portion of their existence that was consistently "power/thrash" (I disagree with calling their more recent material such but that's for another day). My point is that Iced Earth is simply a poor example of power metal because they're much more closely tied with thrash than anything and suggesting them to someone looking for bands like Kamelot and Rhapsody is misleading.

    Still a great band though, if you can ignore Schaeffer's ego (which rivals that of Steve Harris).

    I hate it when people are so full of themselves, like Zakk Wylde.

    Or you could get their two-disc Greatest Hits album, The Blessed and The Damned.

    Alright, I think I'll just get the two - disc greatest hits. Considering that they're so good.

    In all honesty though, I don't have much Fireaxe. Just a couple songs here and there. I've been meaning to buy a couple albums for a while, but I never got around to it. Still though, they're really cheap and completely worth it at that.
