    For me fantasy, war, and mental illness are some topics I like. The kind of lyrics done earlier by Sepultura and Slayer.

    It doesn't have to be topical as such, just well written.
    Pig Destroyer are a favourite of mine because the lyrics are so surreal and fucked up, while Morgion simply have a fantastic knack for putting words and sentences together.

    I like Death's lyrics... more thought provoking and poetic sounding. Sometimes Opeth achieves that.

    My favorite lyrics right now are probably Cephalic Carnage.

    I like some battle and War Themes but with A Grim and Agressive feeling , sometimes with Pagan and Folk Themes and louder Gospel... Like Immortal, Graveland, Therion, Amon amarth, Nokturnal Mortum, :worship: :devil:

    GoD... I dont think Krigloch was being sarcastic about his power metal statement, he has a Lost Horizon album cover in his sig! Power Metal rules by the way.

    As far as lyrical themes... i really dont care as long as they are well written.

    It would've been less humiliating for MURAI if Krigloch had been sarcastic. I presumed that he wasn't.

    I find that my favourite lyrics tend to be naturalist.

    haha, awsome. Ill have to check out Heavenly. My fav genre of metal would be death, melodic death, or thrash, but I love power metal as well, always good to find another good power metal band =)
