fuckin' hell. This is surprising (in a good way).
Digging: Teramaze - Esoteric Symbolism
hope they make a good album
really liked keeper part 1
This album is fucking awesome so far. I've never described a Helloween song as 'pummeling' but "Long Live the King" definitely beats the shit out of you.
One of my friends loves this band but I just don't get it.
Digging: Katatonia - Kocytean
Wait, this is actually good? Definitely gonna listen.
It's slowing down a bit since "Long Live the King" but still feeling like a solid 3.5
Yeah, I'm on the third song and this is surprisingly awesome. 3.5-4 so far.
probably sucks, not listening.
Fuck yeah, This rules so far!
Despite some filler, I'm rather enjoying this. Who Is Mr. Madman, despite yet another surname title, isn't half bad...but that Jethro Tull flute solo in Raise the Noise made me laugh a bit.
And Dani Loble kicks some serious ass on this album. The drums alone are worth the price of admission here.
This is awesome....
Year of Power Metal continues!! Unfortunately won't have time to listen to this fully until like Tuesday night.
hmm, probably going to give the stream a try even though I haven't enjoyed any new power metal in a while.
Pretty win, this band were epic in their heyday and even though they're past their prime I think they have achieved something great with this new album. Definitely a 3.5- 4 for me
This is sick!
I'm actually liking this, the guitars are LOUD and that is making my day
Digging: Ayria - Hearts for Bullets
Not bad after three songs
hell yea mikes comin back
They're a hell of a lot more interesting than Gamma Ray these days
Early Gamma Ray is sweet, later stuff is fairly hit and miss
Gamma Ray has been going slowly downhill since Majestic, they had a great run between '95 and '05 with six terrific albums though. And they're still a kick-ass live show.
I realise that I just pretty much described Helloween there as well but Helloween > Gamma Ray no matter what
out of the fucking blue! this is a huge surprise. nice guitar work, decent melodies and Andi's vocals aren't that annoying
i have the feeling this will come out on halloween...
