Might as well start posting here or something.
First off, I'm pretty upset about Chimaira breaking up.
Next, I guess I might as well tell you all my favorite metal bands. Number one is Fear Factory, and then in no particular order, The Agony Scene, In Flames (up to Clayman), Dark Tranquillity, and Lamb of God. I wouldn't say the rest are favorites because I haven't heard a lot of their stuff, but I also like Death, Living Sacrifice, Septic Flesh, Mastodon, Chimaira, Meshuggah, Katatonia, and Machinae Supremacy.
Aaaaand speaking of Machinae Supremacy, I'm in an ongoing argument about whether they're actually metal or not. The guy I'm arguing with said "if it's not heavy metal, it ain't metal". I'm still newish to metal (only been listening for about two and a half years) so I pointed him to their Wiki page and their Metal Archives page, which has them classified as "Power Metal with various influences".
"No... Metal has been slashed down to so many genres which include styles that really are not metal in the first place. death "metal", black "metal", industrial "metal", and mess of other false metal genres are not metal. the so-called Heavy Metal Archives are wrong. And "power" metal is simply heavy metal. Kids today wouldn't know real metal if it bludgeoned them.
This is metal:

this is not metal:
(links to Suicide Silence, Black Veil Brides, and Cannibal Corpse)
And calling THAT post metal is like saying Motionless in White is metal"
So yeah. Anywho... I was expecting to get a Dark Tranquillity CD in the mail today, but unfortunately it didn't show up. I'm also debating whether I'll get one of these two In Flames CDs, and if so which one: Colony or The Jester Race.
