You're criticising me for 'getting it wrong' when you're not even capable of reading and understanding what I wrote... You talk about music tastes and what sounds better, but I never cared for that factor. Bodom is my favourite band and has always been. Alexi Laiho is my favourite guitarist and has always been. But I never tried to make a point about whether or not Bodom's music and Laiho's solos are good. As you said, we're on a Bodom forum, so I would expect everyone here to like their music just as much as I do. Yet, what I was opposing was the silly idea that Laiho was the greatest guitarist there were and that he'd be remembered as such. So here we go again: 1. No, Laiho wasn't the best guitarist there were. He was very good, even excellent, but his real talent was composition. There were plenty of better guitarists before, at the same time and after him. 2. He won't be remembered more than a few years and by hardcore fans like us only. Because the world doesn't care for metal anymore. Because even those who care for metal don't often listen to anything heavier than Metallica, Panthera, Rage Against the Machine, etc. Because those who do listen to Death Metal often think Bodom was too mainstream for them. And because there aren't even that many guitarist left amongst the few remaining people who listen to Melo Death and Bodom in particular. It does not matter how much we love Bodom and Laiho. He wasn't the greatest, and he'll be forgotten. That's a sad truth. Now stop assuming I criticised people's tastes. I never did. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion on music. I only ever pointed out that technically wise, our common idol was nothing more than a very good guitarist. Not legendary, not revolutionary, just very good.
