    Rainbow might be a blueprint that was not yet final. They are not a heavy metal band to me hard rock.

    Okay, I'm not getting into a nit-picking "what is and what isn't heavy metal" argument, that is one of the primary reasons I stopped posting on metal message boards and stopped hanging out with friends that listened to metal. The constant bitching about something that is 100% subjective is a waste of time and effort.

    I'm out.

    Well Rainbow does have some tasty ingredients that are missing in "modern metal."

    I just gave my opinion I'm sorry I was not bitching or trying to argue with you if you got that impression I am very sorry.

    I didn't mean you, I just meant in general, I've been roped into too many discussions on this topic over the years and it almost always ends up in arguments, so now I just try to avoid it as much as possible.

    I think if you posted a poll asking are Rainbow, UFO, etc. metal bands yes or no I'd guess the results would be fairly even.

    I don't blame you the same has happened to me. But the more I think about the Rainbow songs you mentioned. I think you are right!

    Yes I proclaim Rainbow Metal from 1975-77 in my opinion.

    I hear tons of BOC in what they do, too. They're a good band; surprisingly melodic.

    It's Opeth don't listen to it. I can post what I want. This is a heavy metal thread. But I understand your limitations as to different genres of metal. Sorry it is above your head. By the way is your vocabulary always so vulgar? You sure have a way with words. Nobody is forcing you to be here if you don't like these posts just leave. Or is the real reason you just want to start trouble?

    I hear you. Sometimes the nitpicking gets over the top. These kinds of arguments show up in prog rock threads, high end audio threads and on and on. There are certain people you have to tune out in these arguments because some people are only concerned with being right and have no interest in what others have to express. Don't quit the thread-or for that matter any threads. You have a lot to offer here.

    I didn't like his vocals at first but came to accept or appreciate them over time. Musically Opeth is light years better than other growling bands. Heck, they're light years better than most metal bands from the past twenty years. Give them a chance.

    He also has one of the best clean voices in all of metal. Approach with an open mind and you might be surprised.
