    Music died when Doom/Black/Death/Gothic metal became more popular than other branches of more elegant Metal.

    And I am not gonna back my opinion off, and I will defend it with my hammer and a viking helmet and pray to Odin and the gods of Clubbering trolls while doing it.

    Ahhh well yeah, not sure it died then... but it certainly got derailed rather badly.

    I certainly did sound musical in nature! For me, the day the music died
    was the day the electronic synthesizer took over. Nothing will ever replace that of a human playing insturments in harmony. Some things sound good with
    one in play, but when a whole song is done with one it def takes the human factor out and a band no longer sounds like a true band.

    Who cares about metal anyway? Isn't that the kind music that sounds like mush because of excessive compression and limiting? And what is elegant metal?

    Depends on what you think as metal. A bit of Steppenwolf, DIO, sprinkling of Black Sabbath... I'd even go as far as some 80's like Twisted Sister, Motley Crue... not sure there's a lot of compression or limiting going on in there.. but I'm far from an expert... I just like what I like... :)

    I don't have issues with synths as long as they don't try to be anything other than a synth, personally.

    It is when you have pople attempt to use synths/keyboards as a guitar that they give me the creeps :-)

    It only sounds like mush if you produce it on the cheap or with lousy musicians - guess what, like everything else.

    While not on the top of the Metal food chain, you can find good production values in a lot of Axel Rudi Pell's albums. His Mystica album comes to mind as one in which everyinstrument sounds crystal clear, for example. Most stuff done by Rhapsody under Magic Circle sounded awesome, epic orchestas and everything.

    Good one. Dio's Egypt (Ther Chains Are On) sounded very good for such an old recording.

    Look at Nightwish, Within Temptation, Epica. Go for any of the symphonic female fronted stuff, it's amazing. For Within Temptation, I recommend starting with listening to the entire Unforgiving album.

    I have a serious quibble with American Pie and it has to do with the
    redundant and bizarre:

    "Them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye..."

    Which is like saying "Them good old boys were drinking whiskey and bourbon..."

    or

    "Them good old boys were drinking soda and Pepsi."

    There is, apparently, a rogue theory in which he is actually singing "whiskey in Rye," as in Rye, New York, but as ever, the anarchists out there are
    trying to tear down all manner of reason and decorum in proffering it.

    This is the sort of lyric the execrable Steve Miller would have written,
    given that he had the gall to write lyrics like:

    Billy Mack is a detective down in Texas
    You know he knows just exactly what the facts is

    only to rhyme it with taxes two lines later.

    That is PURE NERVE, Miller. PURE NERVE.

    That song has other problems such as verb tense. You have to be wealthy to
    get away with this grammatical abomination:

    They headed down old El Paso
    That's where they ran into a great big hassle <- !@#$%^$, Steve. Seriously. !@#$%^$!!!!!!
    Billy Joe shot a man while robbing his castle

    AND THEN THIS

    Bobbie Sue took the money and run

    SHE RAN, STEVE. SHE RAN, YOU CANNOT TOOK THE MONEY AND RUN IN THE PAST TENSE.

    WHISKEY and RYE indeed. You just know there was a summit. A Steve Miller
    and Don McLean wherein Steve Miller, destroyer of all things good and pure
    and holy, tainted the song with the "whiskey and Rye bit."

    I AM CROSS WITH BOTH OF THEM
