I just listened to Eye of the Storm, it's a nice solo. Although I've heard better (Just my opinion). I don't really listen to much BFMV, so I'm not used to their style. But I do love Van Halen, he's one of my favorite guitarists, and his band one of my favorite bands :D Have you heard Amsterdam or Dreams by Van Halen? They're both awesome songs, and Dreams has a really good, melodic guitar solo. You should listen to them if you're interested.
Uuh, I'd rather not discuss religion :\
You know, usually my favorite part of a song is the solo. Do you like solos? What's your favorite solo? Mine is the outro solo in Mr. Crowley (By Ozzy Osbourne), or the solo in Stargazer (By Rainbow).
That's cool. I made that assumption from your profile pic I'm from a younger generation so I like more modern stuff, but all metal is good to me :D LP is not as heavier, but i still think they're good, tho I understand why some don't 'cuz it really isn't metal its Nu-Metal and they're new stuff isn't even metal at all, but I'd say they're my favorite band 'cuz heavy or not I think they sound good. Its great to know there are other pokemon playing metal listeners out there :D
