Or,going for what passes for power metal these days - again, look at the Nos and G-Man: one turns his nose on everything, as if it was a rotting elk carcass, while the other gives everything giant sing-along hugs out of the kindness of his generous heart. To me 90% the new releases I've heard over the last almost two decades have been weak, insincere, and narcissistic, but, lo, they'll find the audience willing to buy what they're selling.
Yes, I have a generous heart, but I'm far to love everything. And "power metal" is far to be my fave style. My fave styles are traditional metal and hard rock, with some prog metal along the way.
I mean, I don't like most of what is called power metal these days, I don't care for almost all these speedy double-bass symphonic power bands, be them with female singers or not (never cared for Rhapsody, Xendria, Nightwish and the likes). My kind of power is the older one, like Grave Digger, Primal Fear and others. For example, the last Grave Digger is excellent in my book, I like it a lot. I know you think it's shit, even though I can't understand why.

I just have a hard time as a whole with people (like you) who dislike all new music, even by bands they used to love. Do you also think recent Saxon albums (recent as in the last 20 years) suck? For me, most of them can rival with the 80-83 classic stuff.
