Honestly I care so little about some of those bands/subgenres that I wasn't even paying attention. But honestly the rate of stupidity on this board has skyrocketed so much that half of that shit would probably be someone's serious nominations.

Power Metal: (Modern) The Book Of Heavy Metal - Dream Evil
(Classic) Somewhere Far Beyond - Blind Guardian/Holy Diver - Dio

No way does Dio qualify as power metal to me. That's traditional metal if it has ever been recorded in my eyes.

The Book of Heavy Metal is such a weird pick to me. I've never thought, that even at their best, Dream Evil was more than at best, a 2nd-tier band, and The Book of Heavy Metal is my 3rd favorite of their 5 albums.

I would consider Dio a major influence on Power Metal, and as such consider Holy Diver a definititve album in that style.

Book Of Heavy Metal is my favorite Dream Evil record. I would rate them quite high within power metal as a style of music. Please not I amen't a big power metal fan to begin with, I am merely rating what I like out of that style.

I won't argue that Dio isn't a huge influence on the Power Metal genre, but I don't consider any of his work to be power metal. It's the same deal with Maiden, and a few other bands like them. It was essential stuff in the formation of the genre, but I don't think there was any true power metal prior to around 1985 and Helloween's Walls of Jericho, and the genre didn't really blossom for about 5 years more after that.

It's a fantastic album. Life in Still Water, Point of View and 11th Hour are absolute classics of the genre.

Honestly EVERY song on that album is a "classic" to me. But Eleventh Hour, Point of View, and Leave the Past Behind are my favorites. Honestly love all 8 of them though. One of only maybe ten records ever made where I can say that.

Post Metal Isis OceanicThis. (Although some punctuation would have been nice. :rolleyes:)

Other than that, there's a lotta sadness around this thread.

A couple more correct statements are as follows:
Death Metal: Death - Scream Bloody Gore
Melodic Death Metal: Carcass - Heartwork
Tiberian Ass-Bastard Folk: Cormorant - Metazoa
This.

Bands that are their own genres:

Opeth: Ghost Reveries
Celtic Frost: Into the Pandemonium & To Mega Therion
Voivod: Nothingface & Dimension Hatross
...and this.


Oh, and...
Death Metal: Scream Bloody Gore - Death/Altars Of Madness - Machine Head
Morbid Angel would like to have a word with you. :nonono:
