Alabama Thunderpussy's "Open Fire" should be in The Guardians

The music compiled within Virginia-based stoner metallers Alabama Thunderpussy's 2006 album "Open Fire" is generally regarded as stoner/Southern metal however in reality it's more of a combination of your more traditional heavy metal riffs & song structures with a stoner metal production job & aesthetic. You definitely get your fair share of stoner groove but those moments are comfortably out-weighed by fast-paced Judas Priest riffage, Saxon-esque hard rock crunch & Iron Maiden style guitar harmonies. For that reason I'd like to see it sitting in The Guardians under Heavy Metal while maintaining its position in The Fallen under Stoner Metal.
