I haven't heard anyone against mckindog's idea (more here) so why not let's do it....? Rules: Let's turn this into a single thread plus; let anyone post any song they want to discuss whenever they want to, limit of one per week per poster. I'll kick off with: Brainstorm - Weakness Sows Its Seed from the album Metus Mortis (2001) Brainstorm is a less known power metal band from Germany. They are known to play a somewhat darker style of music than most power metal groups. They made quite a few decent songs, and I have heard worse singers in this genre. Iced Earth fans, pay special attentions to a few vocal lines in the choruses. They always make me smile because I can imagine Jon Schaffer doing such a voice exactly like that.
