    Members of Metal Forum, WELCOME TO THE FORUM! We all know rules are boring, but ask yourselves, what's a tyrannical dictatorship without rules? Chaos. And that simply won't do, because we mods rule with an iron fist! Please speak English in these forums. Breaking the rules will result in a caution and thread-lock. Repeat offenses will be met with a permanent ban. You have been warned. Strict guidelines:- DO NOT post racist, sexist or homophobic remarks. DO NOT bully other users or make physical threats. DO NOT post links to or discuss illegal downloads. DO NOT disseminate other users' personal information. DO NOT post pornographic material (or anything that could be seen as such). DO NOT post spam. DO NOT advertise services or products for sale (unless given permission). General tips:- Be civil and polite to other users, even when you really disagree with them! Mutual respect is important. Do not create huge signatures with lines of images. It means more scrolling, and that's not fair on our poor mouse wheels and trackpads. If your sig is any bigger than the one on this post, it's too big. If your sig disappears, it was deleted for being too big. If you repost it, you'll annoy other users and the mods. This will result in an eSlap. If a thread is clearly going to be locked, don't spam it with remarks like "This thread is going to be locked". You're just bumping a crappy thread. If you're not sure where something should go, post it in General Chat. You aren't a moderator, and acting like one isn't cool. You can swear all you like, but targeting abuse at an individual will be treated as bullying. Try to keep Rick-rolling to a minimum. Make your thread titles relevant to the content. Search the forums before posting news articles to cut down on copypasta. If you want a thread to be stickied, include "Sticky please" in the title. If it doesn't get stickied, it isn't worthy. Deal with it. If you feel your thread is NSFW, warn people in the title. Think before you do anything illegal. We will work with the authorities for great justice. Generally being excessively crude, irritating or attempting to troll for lulz may get you banned at the discretion of the moderators. Respect their decisions, they are only enforcing the rules. You can appeal a ban, but we will be checking logs to assess your offence, so don't try to lie about it. If you have any issues or suggestions, there is a place for them here. If you have any questions about the forums, post them in this thread but please, read the FAQs first! -Metal Forum Team

    Where does the highway go?

    Was listening to the RATM cover of Bruce Springsteen's Ghost of Tom Joad. The highway is alive tonight, no bodys' fooling nobody as to where it goes... We'll, where does it go? Probably open ended philosophical answer but it could be just simpler and I'm not getting it. Death maybe? White Castle?
  5. Daniel Fox of Metal Temple magazine recently conducted an interview with KAMELOT guitarist and founder Thomas Youngblood. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.Asked what message he has for the people who haven't fully embraced KAMELOT's new singer, Tommy Karevik, following the departure of Roy Khan, Thomas said: "I don't really even think about it or worry about it, to be honest with you. The band has actually grown since [2012's] 'Silverthorn' [album], so that percentage of fans that may or may not be onboard, I mean, what can… There's nothing I can say about it."He continued: "From Day One, we were given a situation that we reacted on and there's no looking back. "I'm one of those people that never really lets someone else determine my future. So we made the decisions, and, to me, the absolute best decision, going with Tommy. And, like I said, we've actually been touring more countries than ever before. And you can talk about record sales and stuff like that, but that's not the only way you judge growth or success. So the band has grown in all aspects, so there's no complaints on my side."KAMELOT's new album, "Haven", will be made available on May 5 in North America and May 8 in the rest of the world (excluding Asia) via Napalm Records as part of an exclusive licensing deal through the band's Kamelot Music LLC.Produced by Sascha Paeth and mastered by Jacob Hansen, "Haven" is a massive album that is sure to please critics and fans alike. Guest musicians on the CD include Alissa White-Gluz (ARCH ENEMY), Troy Donockley (NIGHTWISH) and Charlotte Wessels (DELAIN). The breathtaking cover and artwork was created by Stefan Heilemann and additional art/layout was done by Gustavo Sazes."Haven" track listing: 01. Fallen Star02. Insomnia03. Citizen Zero04.

    Male chauvinism in Metal

    So this has been brought up in another thread and I think it's a worthwhile discussion to be had. There is quite possibly a higher ratio of males to females in Metal and fans of Metal. I don't have the figures but I would think so anyways. I think Metal fans are extremely brotherly and fraternal, even females if thats even possible. It does seem quite male i.e. if we're French I might say Le Metal rather than La. However, I don't see our awesome genre and it's fan base as because being chauvinistic beyond what might come naturally to a Viking... what are your thoughts?
