OK, musical truths? Well, music is art, and therefore subjective, which means everyone has a different opinion on the matter, no matter what the band or style of music. There are no absolute in terms of the music itself, there are absolute when it comes to the composition/circumstances which allowed the music to be e.g. AC/DC, Angus is a blues guitarist. Fact. Malcolm is the regarded by everyone who knows the band personally as the better guitarist, and helps Angus write his solos. Fact. After that, its an opinion therefore not a truth.

If we are talking opinions, my recent discovery is that PanterA are still my favorite band, I still love listening to Motorhead and KISS while getting wasted and that discussing music is still a fruitless discussion becuase people will not change their opinions on the actual musi just because the person who made it studied theory for years, or was a huge fan of your favorite band.

But that being said, an hour is nothing. Unless you live in a real city, if you expect most bands to come much closer, you're pretty crazy. Aside from a random club here or there that maybe books less than half-a-dozen shows in a year I'd even consider going to - all the shows I really care about going to are either in Philadelphia (80 minutes), or New York City (a little under 2 hours). It's not that far. I'm driving 3.5 hours to see Maiden, 4 hours to see Fates Warning, and 13 hours to go to ProgPower USA XI this year alone.
Virtually every show I go to is at least 2 hours away. It's awesome when I'm home and go to a show in Norfolk because it's only a 20 minute drive.

And how dare you group Cannibal Corpse and Behemoth with poser shit like Whitechapel. Shame on you.
poser shit like Whitechapel? they're a great band. just because a band is deathcore doesn't make them posers.

musical truth: in viewing the full spectrum of their career, priest define metal more than maiden.

Agreed. Maiden are one of the rare heavy rock/metal/whatever bands whose bread n butter isn't The Riff, but rather The Melody or The Hook, and that sets them apart.
