Elf has metal opinion 

I think my least favourite element in metal is double bass drumming. Listen to and the incessant pummeling, and how it suddenly gets way heavier and groovier once it stops at around 0:48. There's other ways to up the intensity. Also this is why I love bands like Power Trip and Devil Master, because they just don't use it.

Let's go away

"Synth" has changed meaning since I was young (420 years ago.) I keep clicking "synth" posts and getting something unexpected.

Toad is named Toad, but he's also a Toad?

Depending on which perspective you take, I guess. I'm going to take the gay one.
