2. Helloween- Ride the Sky........ a landmark song on a landmark album...this is the song/album that started melodic power metal, as we know it....[/quote]

I've got to take issue with this statement. This song didn't start melodic powermetal as we know it, because the only songs in this style that were better are from Helloween themselves. They are Victim of Fate, Guardian, and Phantoms of Death.

Good to see you around again by the way.[/quote]

Jake, thanks for the call out.........BUT, I happen to believe Ride the Sky is the crowned jewel of Walls of Jericho. I love Guardians and Phantoms of Death as well, but I stand by my earlier statement...
As for Victim of Fate, besides being my screename on other metal boards, it's an amazing song but to me, the EP doesnt quite have the power and melody that Walls brought to the table and not QUITE as tight, either. Dont get me wrong, the EP is a 9.5 while Walls is a 10++.
Bottom line here, though, is that we both agree that Helloween were the melodic power metal pioneers... Mr. Green

hmmm..now it'll be-

1.Nevermore-believe in nothing..beautiful heaviness with softness.
2.Agalloch-...and the great cold death..
3.Iron Maiden-infinite dreams.
4.Coram Leathe-the angels fell.
5.Helloween-The king for 1000 years. the new one is quite good..diserve to continue the first two. though not as great.


just the favorite songs of this moment..

Damn near impossible to narrow it down but at 6:52 AM here goes:

Deep Purple: Burn
Judas Priest: Tyrant
Iron Maiden: Revelations (Live After Death version)
Black Sabbath: Kill In The Spirit World (I've never got tired of this song)
Dio: All The Fools Sailed Away/ Metal Church: Badlands

I cheated. That's 6.

Here's my 5 (subject to change):

Pantera - Mouth For War
Badlands - Dancing On The Edge
Van Halen - Romeo's Delight
Velvet Revolver - Slither
AC/DC - Go Down

You know, it interesting to note that no one (so far) has mentioned anything by Metallica. Except Whofan - but then he submitted over 30 songs too...
