An excellent post Miss B! Good points well made and an opinion on the future of metal. Given that you do like the eighties stuff then may I take the liberty to profer a band called Ghost. This band somehow manage to have 100% 70s and and early 8os sound yet still, somehow, sound very fresh (rather than original). I am told that 'the kids' love this band, I wouldn't know. check them out Miss B, they make me smile driving to work do they these Ghost fellers!

And yeah, don't see why you have to be off yer trolley to like certain music! And as for metal of today, it is about checking bands out based on what you already like, I wouldn't go any where near Dragon Force, for example, but give me a band which will challange what a metal fan will listen to and except as metal eg. Anathema, Ulver, then I wanna hear it.

I actually do listen to all sorts of music Miss B, not so much metal from the eighties these days granted apart from Slayer and Metallica of course, but most of my eighties listening is to Duran Duran or Prince, but I will stop there, even though I love the 80's myself, they'll be no lists of bands more famous for knocking out vinyl in the 80's from me!

Metal will keep on going and probably become even more diverse than it is now. Been a fan since the 70s and back then you could probably name all the bands that were about? You couldn't do that now as there are too many!?

Mr L- glad to see you didn't take my comments too much to heart- i certainly didn't mean to come across as strongly as it might have sounded! Must confess(again) that i also listened to the sort of bands that you yourself listened to in the 80s,but enough said about that in this forum the better, i think! Aside from that, i do have two sons of 23 and 19 who both like what they consider to be metal. Glad my eldest isn't here to read this as he is a big fan of Dragonforce! (maybe i'm getting too old, but it's a little bit cacophonous for me!), but he also listens to Korn, Alestorm, Rage as well as loving my era of metal, whose names shall be unspoken lest i hold myself up to more ridicule! Also, i don't mind a little bit of Disturbed myself now and then! My younger son seems to be stuck in some sort of timewarp with Judas Priest, however!(and Rob Zombie- figure that out cos i can't) My daughter (13) doesn't deserve to breathe the same air as the rest of us, as she listens to all the commercial dross previously mentioned! Thanks for the recommendation on Ghost, will have to find something of theirs to try as i'm ashamed to admit i have not heard of them!

I think metal as a genre has never been stronger. Bands like Vektor give me hope that good metal music will continue to be made.
