These have been around for over a year I think, but I guess I was too lazy to post them.
Digging: DIR EN GREY - Arche
Sounds good but I would really have to hear the entire songs with a singer. I can't compare these instrumental tracks to their real songs.
Whoever they find as a singer has their work cut out for them to replace the god of metal himself.
Wojtek has said that they'd jump at the chance to bring Daniel back into the band. And he should join them. It's not as if Heed is doing anything worth listening to.
Especially since Heed broke up.
These samples were up at the beginning of June and they are great. Too bad Daniel probably won't come back for awhile as his new band Lavett is working on their first album, due out for sometime this summer I think.
Shows you how much I give a shit about Heed, doesn't it?
Lavett is 10X worse than Heed sadly.
I don't see how that's possible without being syphilis incarnate.
Daniel Heilman is part of less-than-spectacular side-projects?
Why??? Lost Horizon are pretty much legends. Well sort of. One of the few truly good power metal bands.
I could count a few dozen power metal bands that I would consider "truly good". Lost Horizon is/was in the top 3.
Spirit was alright, the others were mleh. Don't have huge hope for something good.
I count 5.
I would add almost every german power/speed metal band in there, but for some reason I don't think anyone would agree with me.
I really hope Daniel gets back...
I just listened to the samples from Lavett. I can only hope that I escaped with no major disease.
I'm going to give their entire album a listen/review when it's released sometime this summer.
