Necrophagist
Yngwie Malmsteen
Obscura
Michael Angelo Batio

Pretty much any tech death band or shred to be honest, although there are exceptions like Gorguts and Jason Becker

But if your main focus is just technicality then your song writing suffers. It's music, not a talent show.

Taxer, Obscura is great. Cosmogenesis is at least. So fuck you, go listen to Immortal.

i never said i was looking for solid songwriting.
clearly, you have a far different purpose when you listen to music, not that its bad, just im not much of the ponderer and the lyricist

actually, i can vouche for Immortal. they are surprisingly decent, for now that is.

and Necrophagist is better. Fuck that, Gory Blister is better than both Obscura and Necrophagist.

There is more song writing craft in "Withstand the Fall of Time" than in both of Obscura's albums combined. I like Obscura, but black metal that perfectly formed is something special:

I like Immortal, but I'm not sure I'd agree with that.

And Brute, they don't even wank that much. Especially their first album, it's barely even tech death in my eyes. Oh well, we all have our opinions

Honestly, that's probably the most stupid, ineffective, and effeminate word to express distaste for something. Reminds me of a bunch of small, 12-year-old, uniformed English children in a school playground talking about how "that Pokemon card is so wanky!"

I fucking hate you all.

theres british people on this site. lol dan, dont get so agitated. thats the term over there i think. right dark?

chill dan. by the way, happy lors day eve and pre super ultra mega lors day eve.
It's not. I just say it a lot. LOL

oops o well. when i watch stuff on tv it sounds like it comes out often. but thats probably because im an ignorant american. ok. heres another power metal band i forgot to inform power fans about.
They are an austrian band called Serenity. They are compared to Kamelot and Sonata alot (dont really know why) I have heard that they toured with Kamelot and Kamelot kinda took them under their wing. I really like their stuff. heres their music video and some other stuff. taxer may wanna stay away from this. as should other non cheez enthusiasts

I've been getting really into Avantasia recently and I think they come under the tag of "epic metal".

I know you're not into NWOBHM bands, but it doesn't get much more epic than Maiden. Especially live.

Epic metal is a genre that is based on your perception of the term "epic." I personally beleive its a genre, considering I say it is a genre, but genre's aren't very necesary. If you like something you like it, genre's shouldn't have anything to do with that nor classify a band a certain way.

A genre is not vague, it has its own characteristics that make it unique from all other things. I bet you feel angry when random people refer to metal as "screamo" or something, but based on what you said, that is completely justifiable because that's what it is to them.

Is it safe to say that at least 87% of our forum is obsessed with this genre of "epic" metal and all other related sounds?

I don't feel angry. I don't really care if people classify my favorite bands as something they are not. One reason being I don't really like screaming, though I can deal with it. All I am saying is that I just feel like 1, there is too many genres (I realize have 'epic' metal makes it 1 more) and 2, I feel like it limits a band to change their style. Personally when I listen to metal, if I like it...it is usually epic. Why not epic metal then?

I HAVE MY OWN GENRES THEN!

Coke is actually a brand, you sir mean cola.

I get what you mean Taxer, I just don't like how people and bands are constricted to some genres of music.

I think some of my views are like this becuase I hate most metal =]

because without the organization of genres Metal would just be a gigantic cesspool of vermin (cheers if you get the reference).

You think the "genre" debate is bad? Think about if we didn't have them, and people listened to stuff they don't like MORE often.

Lol, I understand what you mean and I also understand what I am saying means little to no sense. It basically comes down to epic metal is a genre that in my opinion changes between the person. If you feel something is "epic" then should it be classified to be in its genre? I think so.

Sometimes I cannot describe a band without using the word epic, or maybe it is the only word.

One of my favorite bands is Streetlight Manifesto, they don't have a genre, but people usually find them through liking punk, and ska. They take pride in not having a genre and being completely unique...I don't know where I am going with this...so take it as it is hahah =]

A genre is a category, and most genres have vague parameters. Determining factors for whether something belongs to a given genre often rely on both subjective judgment and measurable qualities. And a lot of times genres are based on what the majority (or most significant/loudest) group of the community decides upon.

Example of not so vague genre: Wind ensemble. It's based on the instruments used.
Example of vague genre: Epic metal. Does it sound epic enough? Is it metal?

Categories are mostly used for practical purposes. Organization. Free game, no rules. It might not be in line with what a larger community uses, or outside what they use, but it serves a purpose to the individual and probably some others nonetheless.

Bal-Sagoth approves of epic metal and all epic metal related tasks.

Epic metal is usually traditional metal with a, well, epic feel to it. It's kind of like Symphonic metal. It really can't exist on it's own, but it describes the sound of a certain group of bands.

i think epic metal is more of a bracket that encompasses other genres. like it primarily encompasses power metal, folk metal, symphonic metal, true metal and occasionally prog and some gothic metal. so i kind of percieve it as a super genre. Smile
