Prog metal is a tough pill to swallow after listening to stuff like Genesis, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, etc.
Freudian troll? Now I've seen everything.
Uh, yeah. You can't honestly tell me stuff like Iced Earth, Nevermore, or even Fates Warning stands up against Genesis or King Crimson? Come on, that stuff can be entertaining but let's be realistic here.

Have you ever stopped to think that maybe, just maybe, the crowd might be right?There's nothing intelligent about force and war. In fact, it is the inverse. They're childish concepts stemming from sexual frustation and subconscious guilt.
Amdist the sea of flowery dreck in today's power metal scene, Lost Horizon stands head and shoulders above the rest. Ethereal Magnanimus, aka Daniel Heiman, has a voice that emanates pure manliness; he may well be the most powerful singer since Bruce Dickinson.
