    Candlemass

    Any fans of this terrific band from the 80's and 90's? A little trivia, their singer, Messiah Marcolin, was approached by Ghost to be their singer. If you are a fan of Candlemass, how epic would that have been?

    Is metal dying?

    I agree it is a big tent. I am just concerned with its popularity in high schools in the US. I work around youth and it seems most are not at all interested in metal. I would like to see that change however.

    Grim reaper

    I am very familiar with them. Definitely check out Steve Grimmet's Grim Reaper. My favorite album of theirs is Rock You to Hell. I listen to that regularly!

    The best Power Metal bands

    I wish there was a thread for speed metal, which was what most power metal was before the classification. If Helloween is power metal, I would say them. If King Diamond is power metal I would say they are second. If Sanctuary is power metal, I would say they are third.

    80's and 90's metal vs. nowdays metal

    Depends on when you grew up. In my opinion, there isn't a better year for metal than 1987. King Diamond's Abigail, Grim Reaper's Rock You to Hell, Helloween's Keeper Part I, Anthrax Among the Living, etc. But this was my youth. I am not a big fan of 90's metal, but I thought 00's metal saw a return to better melodies and more visceral, less grungie (groove) oriented metal. I think now it is struggling, but Black Metal and Grindcore are still keeping it going.

    Hello

    Probably thrash and old school power metal, such as Helloween and King Diamond. But I also like Black, Doom, Grindcore, NWBHM, and pretty much most of the genres. The only sort of metal I do not like is groove metal and bluesy metal such as Black Label Society. Thank you Father Alabaster.

    Is metal dying?

    I am just concerned about the ages of listeners. I know new stuff is always being created. But firstly, are these young bands? And secondly, are young people listening to them? I do hope so. It just seems in the states there isn't a large youth metal movement. Possibly this is not the case in, say, Norway or other countries where metal is significant.

    Anyone remember this band?

    Who are your current top 5 bands?

    As far as newer bands, Ghost, Gojira, American Satan soundtrack, new Behemoth (not new, but new material I suppose), and Infant Annihilator. Ambient beauty. I would add anything by Enslaved and Emperor as well! I used to host a metal video show in the early 00's and got to interview The Haunted. Peter Dolving was fucking HILARIOUS! I kept in contact with him for a while afterward. As far as newer bands, Ghost, Gojira, American Satan soundtrack, new Behemoth (not new, but new material I suppose), and Infant Annihilator.

    Is metal dying?

    What do you think? How many young metal bands are there? It seems the youth movement is almost entirely rap hip/hop. I think we need a new sound, a more terrifying evil band to come out that is young and original.
