I'm on a mission from god.

I love examples from all corners of the heavy metal spectrum, but I'm here to weed through the crap to get to the good stuff. I was raised on Rush, Motley Crue, Black Sabbath, Van Halen, etc. So musically I'm a bitter old man and really don't have anything to say about genres like 'hardcore, deathcore, nu-metal, or anything that is a bastardization of true heavy metal.

Some favorites of mine include

Reverend Bizarre
Cirith Ungol
Gamma Ray/Helloween
Caulron
Darkthrone
and fucking everyone loves Manowar.

In reviewing, I find it very helpful to have comparisons to other bands so I try to incorporate that. (Keep in mind that is not to say one is better than the other, just comparing styles and sounds.)
