Hugo--my trouble with much recent metal is that the chord progressions are seriously hackneyed. The one you link is a case in point: excellent guitar playing, but the tune doesn't remotely compare to (say) Thunderstruck or Technical Difficulties. Those are genuinely interesting musically--as is much Van Halen. TwoCello's cover of Thunderstruck demonstrates just how interesting a tune it really is--not to mention making an utterly hilarious music video.
