I like his solo stuff more than Strapping Young Lad, but I think everything he does is pretty awesome. I listened to a bit of power metal for a while like Jag Panzer, Blind Guardian, etc but I'm such a die-hard Maiden fan that I just keep going back to them to feel what that genre has to offer.
Sorry for the twenty questions, I'm sure you didn't include an answer in the thread solely to indulge my curiosity.
If you're a Barlow fan; he's on Facebook, and he's always posting side projects hes working with.
Rebel Meets Rebel was SOO good; even my dad liked it; although he took me to my first Ozzfest so I lucked out. I still miss Dime. Incidentally one of my best friends in High School is the Guitar Tech for HellYeah (another awesome band)
Ive always liked the twin lead guitar thing; Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest (although I like Halfords other bands better in terms of their heaviness)
Lately Ive really been digging these female heavy metal singers: Otep, Lizzy Hale from Halestorm, and Maria Brink from In This Moment. Otep Shamaya's poems and her paintings are...interesting, very early Rob Zombie; and her viewpoints on politics and other uhh social ills are refreshing in the music scene. Someone post some metal...I can't from work and this surf rock thing is driving me nuts LOL
