I threatened to make this when that "cds trapped on an island" thread popped up but never got around to it.
Anyway, this is a thread for Blitzer's to discuss all things metal (and by extension/association hard rock).
Maybe we can start with favourite sub genres, bands, albums and what we're currently listening to
Favourite sub-genre(s): Power Metal (I prefer either the heavier American sound or Symphonic) and Metalcore/Melodic Death Metal (though with these genres I either love it to bits or can't listen to it at all)
Favourite bands: Trivium (and unlike a lot of people I like them more with each album), Avenged Sevenfold (self titled onwards), Nightwish, Rhapsody Of Fire, Dragonforce
Favourite albums: Queensryche - Operation Mindcrime, Symphony X - Paradise Lost, Rhapsody Of Fire - Power Of The Dragonflame, Parkway Drive - IRE, Mastodon - Crack The Skye
Currently digging: Amaranthe (don't hate the cheese power), Amon Amarth, Mercenary
