They're still a draw, it's just not 2005 any more.
Unlike LoG they missed their moment. If they had followed up "The War Within" with "Fire From the Sky" instead of the odds and ends "Fallout from the War" and the way too polished, simple, and mid-tempo "Threads of Life" things might have panned out better. Might.
The Century Media/Atlantic contractual obligations/transition and outside pressure did them in I think.
I agree with RM, Threads of life was alright when I heard it, but it felt like Shadows Fall by-the-numbers after a while. Fire from the Sky impressed me years after I had stopped listening to them in any excitable manner. Right from the opening track it was a different beast, but it was too little too late to bring any sort of power to the bands momentum again.
Ill keep giving them listens though, Destroyer of Senses and The light that Blinds were amazing tracks I still jam today, so they deserve my attention, if nothing else, at least for nostalgia's sake.
I have no idea why anyone hates 3 inches of Blood. When they started they were kinda silly I suppose, but why would you not like silly?
Their last album however, "Long Live Heavy Metal" was a NWOBHM-era power metal classic on par with Judas Priest's "Painkiller". It was phenomenal, over-the-top, metal to every degree, and even had a song specifically about Dio with a keyboard solo. They couldnt have chosen a better album to call it a day on. I couldnt be friends with someone who listened to their last album and still decided to hate them.
