It's just a taste thing. I just can't stand the vocals personally, and the themes are so unworldly and KIng Arthur "folksy" I just can get into it.....I'm not condemning anyone for liking it.....

I listen to Tool, Porcupine Tree, Opeth, (old)Metallica, KSE and Strapping Young Lad.....all of theses bands have highly skilled guitarist and singers that match or surpass the Dio-inspired lot.
