    That Sanctuary, I mean, Nevermore, remake is much more interesting than that obnoxious, cloying and labored version people are infatuated with now by Disturbed.

    I agree, I was just about to say the same thing.

    Wait, we should spend at least 17 posts distilling what "heavy" means, before pouncing headlong into such a nasty briar patch.

    A clarification

    Heavy covers of songs that originally were not heavy at all.

    In essence this means heavy (hard blues, hard rock, metal) versions of songs that originally were pop, folk, soul, R n B.
    It doesn't mean posting HEAVIER versions of songs that were already hard blues, hard/heavy rock or metal.

    I can't wait

    Heavy is what heavy is, anyone who needs to debate it will never get it or recognise it.
    It would be like a jazz fan trying to explain the various types of jazz to me and what the attraction is for listeners and explaining why the musicians sometimes play out of tune and out of time and rarely follow sheet music and why solos are so long and why they drift so far from the main theme. I never got jazz and never will. But, each to his own.
