WF's Favourite Genre of Music - Round 1

This idea I came up with after seeing SheamusO'Shaunessy's threads. I'm sure he won't be too happy about it considering my criticism of one of his poll's but credit goes to him for inspiring this idea nonetheless. Would be a dick move to not acknowledge it.

Anyway I figured because there is one already for bands that doing one for genre's could be a good idea. I realise there is not one universally best genre of music so as you can see, I've titled it as favourite. This is the first round, I will be doing a number of sub genres so there isn't going to be any universal terms of genres such as metal or rock being used.

The first poll will be between two very different sub genres of metal. Those being Power Metal and Black Metal. So vote wisely!

Re: WF's Favourite Genre of Music - Round 1

Power metal is the most hilarious, and terrible, of all the metal sub-genres. I'm not actually sure there's any type of metal I'd vote for it over.

Re: WF's Favourite Genre of Music - Round 1

Power metal is best when coupled with another style, as in Symphony X or even early Nevermore.

Re: WF's Favourite Genre of Music - Round 1

I voted Power Metal because some Black Metal bands scare the shit out of me.

Black Metal wins by the length of a snow covered Scandinavian forrest.

Re: WF's Favourite Genre of Music - Round 1

Voted for Black Metal, but I think some of you guys aren't appreciating some of the greatness that Power Metal brings to the table. Once you peel back the layers of cheese, there's a technical aspect with the use of orchestration or similar techniques. The concepts can often be hit or miss but as a 'fantasy fiction' fan I enjoy the idea of trying to incorporate those concepts into a musical medium.


I love professional-wrestling.

I appreciate the technical aspect, and know that when its done right, its a very demanding and difficult genre to both write and perform. No disrespect to the skill levels involved. Unfortunately, I've never heard a power metal band I actually came close to liking.

BM wins for me even just including the newer wave of black-influenced bands, like Deafheaven, Wolves In The Throne Room, Boss-de-Nage (III is a great album, released this year), etc.

Power Metal is horrendous. I can't stand bands like Helloween or Manowar. BM for me.
