While, on the whole I got a few laughs, I feel the need to comment on a few things:
-Considering that Slaughter of the Soul is considered one of the first Melodeath albums, I think At the Gates probably belongs in Va, not Vb. But that's debatable. I don't know who else got to see ATG touring last summer, but in Worcester EVERYONE around me was talking about how long they'd waited for this show, and the crowd absolutely exploded when the band came on.
-I also disagree with Possessed being in Vb instead of Va, but that's personal taste, so disregard this.
-HOW are Mastodon, Opeth, CoB, and Arch Enemy "Gay ass Ozzfest metalcore bands". While CoB have put out two less than stellar albums in a row now, none of them play metalcore. Saying Opeth is metalcore is down right ridiculous, and I think your so-called True Metal Police would beat YOU for saying that
. I understand their placement together on the list, though I think their tier should be COMPLETELY renamed, and SOAD removed from it.
-Nevermore are not power metal. More like Prog/Thrash.
-Also, probably the BIGGEST wtf on this list: Amon Amarth as a "fairy power metal band"? Are you on crack?
Oh, and Skid Row should definitely be in II or IV.
