Blinded By Fear vs. Rebellion In Dreamland

In case you haven't heard either:

Probably can't conduct any kind of a litmus test with completely unrelated songs. In any case, Blinded By Fear is better. But it's pretty obvious that fans of death metal will choose BBF, and fans of power metal will choose RID. No ultimate truths will be revealed.

The point is for them to be unrelated. Freebird and Stairway aren't related Besides doesn't mean we won't come across fans of both power metal and death metal.

Metal is proof that Satan loves us and wants us to be happy.

BBF is brutal. RID is decent but the comments underneath are a total joke

What does it reveal about your tastes if you think both songs suck old man balls?

All of that sound except the first 2 Dissection albums don't do it for me. Jester Race has some rad songs too I guess.
