I don't care that you listen to different music, but I'd appreciate it if you don't belittle my styles. It's my #1 pet peeve. I mainly listen to 4 metal subgenres: Melodic, Power, Progressive, and Traditional. I hate it when people say that "all the bands that play power metal sound the same", because if you ask anyone that knows shit about shit about it rather than just being a judging asshole knows that there's an incredible amount of variety within the subgenre. I agree there are "cliques" of power metal bands (ie Stratovarius/Sonata Arctica/almost all other Finnish Bands) but the differences between the cliques is pretty sizeable. You can't say Jag Panzer sounds like Stratovarius, or Primal Fear sounds like Nocturnal Rites, or At Vance sounds like Blind Guardian, etc, etc.
