    lol, Timmy will probably just shrug it off while wearing his 5 championship rings on one hand and holding his 3 finals MVP trophies with the other.

    yea it's all nonsense anyway, i think im just going to stop using that term from now on. Its basically just US heavy metal. And im definitely going to stop wasting my time arguing about a band that i think are a fucking joke and an embarrassment to heavy metal on a whole.

    Accept your ancestry, your true ancestry. Your forefathers are hairy-chested crossdressers, and the second peoples that Quorthon ripped off after Venom. Murica.

    I found that one recently as a random YouTube suggestion after I had listened to a few Russian demos on a different channel. I wishlisted it on RYM and noticed you were a fan, but haven't gotten around to a full listen. It sounds pretty cool though, a little bit of that gloomy melodic Sortilege feel. I'll give it a full listen this weekend.

    Heavy/power metal for sure, even proto viking metal (if such thing exists). If people is willing to give the power metal tag to Manilla Road, Manowar can be power metal as well.

    Manowar is classic heavy metal, not power metal. Period.

    Queensryche album is PM?
    IYO, what category Crimson Glory belongs to?

    When it comes to Riot, their album from 1981 Fire Down Under totally sounds like NWOBHM, while the later album ThunderSteel is vastly different, it's power/speed metal.

    yea wasnt sure if you were familiar with them or not but i've posted them here a few times. Thought it would be right up your alley. I think they're okay, cant stand the vocalist though. Funny fact, they're also one of the bands that burned talos as being omni, lol.

    anyone that says Manowar are a power metal band isnt using their ears(or brain tbh) to come to such a ridiculous conclusion.

    @Texas King btw classic heavy metal would be what you hear when you're listening to bands like Black Sabbath(including the albums you're crying about in the other thread) and Deep Purple, not friggin' manowar

    Those two are as power metal as anything before Eagle Fly Free. I'd say Crimson Glory are roughly equally as USPM.

    I agree regarding Riot.

    i dont hear power metal in either of those two tracks. especially the first one. Sounds like standard heavy metal to me.
