ever got the hangloose sign shown to you?
Yes, but I don't think it counts since I was in Hawaii at the time.
^ye thats all they do there, they also told me my name in hawaiin which is Lupaka.
WHOA WHOA WHOA calling me a power metal nerd!!!! Come on man are you serious?!?! Lol, don't get me wrong I like my fair share of power metal bands, but I am no means a nerd. HAHA.. I am a hardcore melodic/death fan. I'm sure that contributes to the reason of Cellador being so fast. Its just so damn fun. It's not terrible being compared to Dragonforce, because they are becoming quite popular, but it is truthfully in terms of speed.
But none-the-less it is great that we are gaining so many fans.
I'd have to say if anybody here can headbang to Dragonforce, Powerquest, or Cellador you're a pretty big nerd.
been there, done it, i even own a few t-shirts.
nerd me to hell and call me george.
Ok I am a huge fan of power metal and DF owes a BIG thank you to Edguy, Hammerfall, Helloween, Dream Evil, Epica, Kamelot, Rhapsody etc. etc. etc. However though their melodies and shit are DEFINITELY power metal, I find their frontman is a DEAD ringer to Bruce Dickenson, which means I am an instant fan. Especially Bruce's Tyranny of Souls album.
Cellador is great, and though I don't like Trivium anymore I do find that they don't like themselves either. There is really no explanation for their constant transformation, they are tired of the screamo kids doing karati kicks to their music and that gives me respect for them. Once Heafy reaches puberty their band will grow immensely and figure out what it means to play shit that REALLY gives me a hardon.
Hrm, I think Mikey sounds more like Michael Kiske than Bruce Dickinson.
i thought i had found a hidden Iron Maiden bootleg or something the first time i heard Cellador, no joke.
they don't sound like iron maiden at all...
Yeah the last I checked Maiden didn't use double bass drumming or falsetto vocals. Or play hella fast.
the last time i listened to maiden i fell asleep
Were you sleepy?
actually i think i was. having said that i still stand by my sentiments that i have to either be really in the mood for maiden or really drunk. the thing is the classics are amazing but ive heard them so much in my life i just cant willingly listen to them anymore. and the songs that arnt classics (namely the last 3 albums) just do actually make me yawn. no offence to maiden! Personally I think priest are the true heroes of British Old Skool Metal. lol.
I like Judas priest but if I listen to iron maiden and then priest I can't really listen to it and i go back to iron maiden because in my opinion it is better. My favorite is Dio though
If Priest were anywhere close to being as consistent as Maiden they could be maybe have ened up better.
priest have that little bit of homosexuality that every great metal band need.
Part of it is because to a lot of ignorant and more trendy american music journalists/listeners, Dragonforce is one of the few power metal bands they have even heard of and can name drop. The other part is because they DO borrow from DragonForce, who had an established sound by their first album, and bands like Power Quest also borrowed from them. Just listen to "forever unbound" and tell me that isn't straight up dragonforce influence there. It is a sound very different than the rawer, classic power metal, a bit more streamlined and insanely melodic, but ridiciulously fast yet not neo-classical. Cellador do have more raw, helloween and grave digger influence however. It think its the combination of those two influences and there own style that set them apart.
I didnt say cellador sounded like maiden i dont think and if i did i meant just the vocalist.
i dont like maiden but i do like priest. saw them 2 summers ago with queensyrche.
