    At this point I myself have just decided that:

    1) I know who I want to win.
    2) All others can be sacrificed.
    3) Hence I vote for those I've never heard of and those I dislike in an effort to get my faves at the top.

    I am afraid that on this particular metal band forum, the mainland/continental European non-prog metal musicians will be out soon. Musicians from British metal bands are -in general- more known and loved so they might not come into trouble as quickly.

    Most forumers outside Europe, but unfortunately also several in Europe, don't know European non-prog metal musicians and/or don't care about metal, apart from Maiden, some other British bands and North American bands (e.g. Dream Theater). Simply because people are often mostly focused on Anglo-Saxon music. On this forum we also have people who feel heavy metal music is too low for their taste. Metal musicians are not good musicians. So people do not explore metal beyond (their own) Anglo-Saxon borders and/or they are rather into other genres, e.g. prog metal, prog rock and/or instrumental artists.

    The only really popular European non-prog metalband is Sabaton, but they don't have very outshining individuals, unless the singer is taking part.

    Summary of this polarizing rant:
    If you're non-prog and metal musican, you're fucked (category A).
    If you're a non-British/North American musician, you're fucked (category B ).
    If you're a non-British/North American AND non-prog and metal musician, you're fucked the most and have nothing to seek in this game (category C).

    For what purpose? If this wasn't some diddy game thread & was just discussion then, yeh, I'd give my tuppence worth. But the game element of this is fucking dumb.

    Which game element? This is a survival in which one can try to get your favourites further by voting on the others. Is that element itself dumb? While doing this people can explain why they like or dislike someone.

    The interesting bit, reading this thread (but not participating in voting), is the latter; but not when the NP rule predominates.

    We might be one vote short for getting Buckethead further, later on.

    I like both metal or prog, whereever it comes from, as long as it's good and fits my taste. For whatever reason some countries are stronger than others though.
    I only sporadically vote here, if I've got the time, know the players, and feel like doing so. If I do, I don't care if someone is metal or prog or whatever, I just judge him by how I perceive his level as a guitarist and musician, and by how much I like his stuff.

    Voted for Adrian Belew, Chris DeGarmo, Guthrie Govan, Jimmy Page, Orianthi, Richie Faulkner, Steve Hackett and Steve Howe.

    Btw. @Forostar, after that whole rant about bias vs. European metal musicians, you go and vote against Esa.
