The original has melody. The problem doesn't start until the vocals enter. :)

At least now I can say that I know I've heard a song by SoaD. I do prefer the medieval version.

Other than vocals, the main problem I have with some metal is that it focuses on speed, at which point there is little to differentiate it most of the time. Meshugga might be an exception (if not for the vocals).

Basically a dude covering with lutes and flutes.

Illustrates that metal songs can have melodies (and probably the reason why some are more popular than others). It's not all headbanging.
It goes both ways:

@desultory: the burning ring of fire in speedmetal is so stupid that it is actually good.

Hier I'am listening to the 'Ring cycle' (conducted by Sir Solti); Die Walkure.

If I can agree with one thing with herr Hitler, it's the great Opera.

But oh why, oh why be fanatic anti-Jewish! Yes, Marx and Engels brought about the 'Marxist orthodox' communism, but it was the Great Russian revolutioniers that brought about the actual human-consuming, genociding communism.

Destroy Russia and bring about freedom to so many oppressed, civilized nations and the Greater Germany, but why Jews, who have bring civilization to northern barbarians!

I often find myself randomly reminded of various lyrics...

Cage The Elephant - Ain't No Rest For The Wicked
"Oh there ain't no rest for the wicked
Money don't grow on trees
I got bills to pay, I got mouths to feed
There ain't nothing in this world for free


Ice-T - Pulse of the Rhyme
Throw me in jail
I won't even try to make bail
Put me in the gas chamber
And watch me inhale!
