    It's usually were the tempo is dramatically slowed down and everything but the percussion is taken out of the segment. It came from hardcore/punk and made it's way into metalcore.
    Well they have similar in their latest album. Tempo dramatically decreases, and they keep vocals and keyboards or vocals and drums, or drums and keyboards, etc. Good enough for me.

    None of their songs feature a single breakdown, lol. Do you even know what they are?
    Well I thought I did but I guess not. Can you explain it?

    If DragonForce was nintendcore, most likely people would be labelling them as nintendocore including themselves ;) DragonForce are Power Metal, or Epic Power Metal as they like to call themselves :P

    As for DragonForce having breakdowns, their latest album features them in pretty much every song I believe. Before this album, I don't think they even had one :P

    Muhammed Suicmez and Sami Raatikainen of Necrophagist.

    Colin Marston of Behold... The Arctopus.

    Omar Rodriguez-Lopez of The Mars Volta.

    Christopher Arp of Psyopus. (Although, that might be to insane.)

    Buckethead.

    Cristopher Bradly of Beneath the Massacre.

    I gotta go to school, so I'll give more later if you want, lol.
    I watched two of Christopher Arp - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rT9IYtTBK7Q and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROogOuYIOTI

    Didn't like the music style (although that's more less irrelevant), nor did it look or sound like anything Herman Li couldn't do. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xjUQw2yQnQ - Herman Li solo in studio.

    The only one I know of which that you listed is Buckethead. He's quite amazing, but again, I'm not one to say if he's better than Herman Li or not.

    I could give you a litany of better guitarists, lol.
    By better I mean skill not at composing songs. Although I prefer Herman Li's compositions over most I hear anyways.

    Anywho, give me this litany of better guitarists. I'll YouTube them.

    Also, I edited my second post about the kids at your school saying how awesome Herman Li is. Make sure you read that.

    P.S. - Corrected myself on my second post... it's not Rhapsody, yet it's Rhapsody of Fire. :P

    Lol, it's just kinda cheesy. I used to like some of it, but then the majority of it just started to sound like the same thing in a loop. Plus, everyone at my school is like "zomgz, DragonForce's guitarist is soooo good!!!111one11!!11!!". When lets be realistic, any technical or avant-garde guitarist could wipe the floor.
    Odd. I find Power Metal to be the most unique genre.

    Cheesy? Yes and no. Rhapsody of Fire is cheesy, DragonForce is not, although they use to be. Their lyrics are now not really fantasy but life related, surprisingly.

    As for Herman Li, he's amazing, although I wish he could do his solos live the same as studio. With enough practice, he could do it, but it's most likely quite hard when he says it's stuff he creates on the spot that he can't exactly recreate on stage (while, again, he probably could with lots of practice). As for a better guitarist then him? I'm not one to judge, although by the looks of it, I haven't seen one better skill wise. As for all those kids at your school, yes it's annoying, but it doesn't help shape my opinion of the guitarist/band/genre.

    I wouldn't have considered that offtopic. You're talking about what people do when they think its the end of the world, and the best way to talk about things is to use contrasts and comparisons. It'd only be offtopic if it went on and on about people doing stupid things without relating it back to a possible world's end. The key word that connects your statement back to the topic is 'anyways' (a comparative word).

    The whole misconception thing... well, people misconcept everything, usually in a way that is more dramatic, because drama is fun? People fear what they don't understand, and not many people understand the Mayans.
    Ahhkay, I'll keep that in mind.

    That doesn't really help with my question much. What caused them to missconcept? I heard something about their calendar ending at 2012. Calendar? Huh? For what?

    I notice a lot of hate on Power Metal from guys who are into the more hardcore, dark metal. What's the reasoning? My guess is either the keyboards and/or high vocals. Anything else?

    Post here if you like Power Metal too :P my favorite Power Metal band is DragonForce, but besides that, it would have to be Blind Guardian.

    That's the problem I have with all these end-of-the-world predictions... people do stupid things.
    Ehm, don't people do stupid things anyways?

    Also, if they didn't predict the end of the world, what did they actually do to create that missconception?

    (Deleted my last post because that alone probably would of been marked as off-topic so I wanted to delete it before a mod could so I wouldn't get in trouble :P :))
