What is going on in the world of metal music?? It seems to be stuck in the late 90's. Most of the American stuff I've been hearing/seeing seems to have the "Metallica" formula down to pat: long long hair, usually bearded, legs apart, and swinging their heads so that their hair rotates. Vocals usually growls which becomes screams... ughh.. Else, you have the 'death' metal as personified by Dimmu Borgir... Is there no hope for metal progression? Here in Europe, what is usually called "heavy" metal is either the "Europe" (of "The Final Countdown" fame) type like The Rasmus, or you end up with "Goth" metal.... there are some notable exceptions such as Rammstein though...
