(in addition to the above...)
apologies for double post

the first songs that people are able to mimic are the slower ones... so it stand to reason that it takes the least amount of skill to produce those melodies...

and metal music isn't to be confused w/ loud screaming and yelling and/or thrashing around... that's a genre/subgenre of its own (its whichever depending on your view)

or maybe i'm only privy to a select few metal bands that sound great while maintaining the fast paced guitar solos and epic vocals...

maybe

Sonata Arctica
Stratovarius
Nightwish
Van Canto
Kamelot
Epica
Heavenly
Symphony X

just misrepresent their metal genre and are great when they should suck...

That is my mistake. I have a friend who's like screamo, and so yeah that's what I think of as metal.

But metal is more like Metallica, and styx right?

No, it doesn't. While technically they may be easier, power metal melodies aren't difficult to compose because they tend to consist of really fast playing chords with slow chord changes. Composition deserves to be considered as much as technicality.

maybe

Sonata Arctica
Stratovarius
Nightwish
Van Canto
Kamelot
Epica
Heavenly
Symphony X

No, there's a lot more fantastic metal out there that isn't power metal. DX You have the wrong mentality here. There's plenty of great metal music out there.

i was putting the subject into general terms because those that don't really listen to metal generalize it. i wasn't breaking it down into subgenres b/c the ones that listen to other types of music and just kind of look at metal as the "black sheep" (SA reference ....:3 ) of music don't get any deeper than the surface. i wasn't saying there was no metal but power metal (most of those bands have their fair share of non-power metal songs)... the only one i personally put a definite "class" on is Van Canto... and that would be a capella metal.
