Ive been playing old metal like metallica megadeth pantera etc, and got into Iced earth a few years ago, since then I cant find anything that gets my attention. I see all these weird metal bands that Ive never heard of

Whats a few good songs by the better metal bands now?
You'll probably like Lamb of God... start with Ashes of the Wake(which has Chris from Megadeth soloing)
Studies have shown that 92% of guitar players are close-minded. Copy this into your signature if you're part of the 8% who enjoy rap.
"rec thread" by the metal forum. really cool solo in that one.

^btw, Lamb of God is not metal. don't introduce them here into this forum.

^also not metal in the least bit. Their singer jut moans in all his songs.
Question not yourself. Challenge those who would deny you your true self for an independent thinker is the greatest enemy to those who seek to control you
No problem.

And yeah, Power Metal is a good genre for those who are making the transition into more underground music.

I went to the doctor, and they found something in my bladder. And whenever they find something, it's never anything good like, "We found something in your bladder AND IT'S SEASON TICKETS TO THE YANKEES!!

Do you folks like folk?
