Okay, you've got me on the progressive thing. But awards, especially reader's choice awards are basically popularity contests. Popularity does not necessarily ensure goodness (just listen to any pop station for 3 minutes).
But then, everyone's experience is subjective, so who's to say either of us is wrong.
By the way - I'm a total metalhead too. Going to see Godsmack/Rob Zombie next week and Gigantour at the end of the month.
And I'm a 30 year-old married father-of-two PhD candidate in mathematics. I'm listening to Iron Maiden right now as I work on my Abstract Algebra HW.

Awesome - I'm 18 and I love physics - hopefully going into a decent uni course next year (if I get the required ENTER - I don't do any homework at all but I still top the class - which just promts me to not do any homework even more :( ). I love metal and somewhat like classical and I wish more metal bands toured in Australia (especially Dream Theater).

Ever heard of Opeth? They are my new favorite band.
And I think Gigantour is coming to Australia later this year - yep Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney at the end of October.
18 huh? I teach kids your age... Man, I'm getting old!

the right answer is - a constant accelration, and it may accelerate in 0.

Rick Wakeman (Odd one out =p)
Strapping young lad
Thats about all I have - and some of those bands while I listen to them frequently I only have singles of (lol, only some of them though, most I have whole albums).

btw it odd to hear about someone old who knows new bands... ussually old people dont try new things in music...

Nice list - a lot of good bands there (and many that I've seen live).
Get some Opeth. Please. Try Blackwater Park or their new one Ghost Reveries for starters. Their two best albums are Still Life and My Arms, Your Hearse, imo.
Also, you might want to check out this set of forums: www.ultimatemetal.com
A couple of your bands have forums there.

When I picked up Blackwater Park (the one with Harvest) I too thought that I would hate the death metal vocals. For a month or so, I wouldn't listen to it. Then, slowly, I started to like it. Then, I loved it.
Now, I listen to them pretty much every day. I've seen them three times live in the past 3 years and they're in Gigantour this year.

Also if you didn't know already; www.metal-archives.com is good for information on metal bands etc.
