I just meant it's been 4+ years since anything has been produce that could even fathomably have a shot at a top 20-30 for the genre overall.

I just don't think any bands are producing their best work. Everyone's either already crappy, sliding downward, stagnating, or merely maintaining solid work. Blind Guardian are kinda hard to peg, because they don't produce an album more often than every 4 years. It's hard to peg a trend.

I went with prog metal. Heavy metal had its day and a ton of my favorite albums are classic metal albums, but prog metal, since its inception, has always, by definition even, thrown enough curveballs to keep producing totally unique great bands.

Honestly it changes for me. I've been a Death Metal fan since the early 80's, so I voted for that. I'm also a big fan of Stoner / Sludge, Doom, Thrash and some Black Metal. I'm a huge fan of Post-Metal and Post-Rock right now...if Post-Metal had been on the list, I might have voted for that.
