  8. I agree, Children of Bodom is Melodic Death, NOT Thrash. Big mistake !! And First Wave of Black Metal was basicly Thrash Metal with satanic lyrics, i think it’s wrong to state that derives from Original Hardcore.

  9. WTF??? Whats with this list, Opeth isnt goth!! Opeth is clearly progressive if youve ever listened to it. And Pantera and COB isnt thrash. Pantera is groove and COB is melodic death metal, I think, its hard to catogorize COB.

  10. I dunno if I would categorize Opeth as Goth, but I don’t think it is progressive either. And Pantera as groove?? Err.. No way!!!

  11. Ummm…how could you miss TOOL??? They’ve definitely be influenced by the progressive metal and original metal sounds…i.e., Rush and Black Sabbath…
