When did Ozzy join Judas Priest?
Digging: Apparitionist - White Noise
Deep Purple's new album rocked harder than this...and they don't even pretend to be hard rock anymore.
Digging: Vallendusk - Black Clouds Gathering
Is this a Sabbath b side?
This is really... passionless. It sounds bored.
Digging: We Stood Like Kings - Berlin 1927
This sounds like they just jammed around a single incessant riff and Halford ad-libbed the first lyrics that came to mind. Scott Travis must be pulling his hair out having to play AC/DC beats for four minutes.
Yeah holy fuck I thought of Ozzy too haha. Still the riffs are pretty sweet but the whole thing kind of sounds lifeless
Digging: The Last Ten Seconds of Life - Soulless Hymns
No worse or better than the other two. lol Halford doing his best Ozzy imitation has got to stop.
Digging: Triumvirat - Illusions On A Double Dimple
dude! That's so raven!!
Digging: Hollow Earth - Silent Graves
Rob sounds like he's:
B) 62 years old
C) All the above
You know that Rob has been asked to fill in for Ozzy on a few occasions for good reason. Rob sounding like Ozzy is nothing new. This track is perfectly fine. It's not much of a ripper, but its crunchy and catchy. If you want to hear Rob scream then listen to the preview of Halls of Valhalla.
This is awful. They all sound so tired. Like they're really apathetic about having to play their instruments. Where's the POWER?
WHERE'S THE PRIEST?
The song is not bad, however Halford does sound 62. On the other hand, Eric Adams (from Manowar) is 60, and still does the screaming thing decently.
Rob did a song with FFDP about a year ago. Now the song itself was a pretty standard anthem, but it was fucking ENERGETIC. Rob sounded GOOD, he could rock that fast-paced lower register singing, and that's what I really hope to hear from him on the other songs.
Also I think the production hurts this more than anything. The guitar tone has no crunch, the drums have absolutely no oomph, and of course Ian's bass is completely drowned out.
Not that bad, but just no...
Digging: Marilyn Manson - The Pale Emperor
"Rob did a song with FFDP about a year ago. Now the song itself was a pretty standard anthem, but it was fucking ENERGETIC"
Same thing I said for the last song.
Digging: Sigh - Imaginary Sonicscape
Also seriously what's this shit
Song's merely decent, band is nowhere near its prime.
Digging: Trial (SWE) - Vessel
waste of time
Digging: Bjork - Vulnicura
what could you expect after that cover
Digging: Coil - The Ape of Naples
Didn't make it to a minute guys, sorry. I have more important things to listen to.
check manic impressions danny im surprised you dont have it rated (and 5d)
Of all the classic metal bands, Maiden's the only one that apparently remembered how to write a memorable track.
Digging: Drawn And Quartered - Hail Infernal Darkness
this is pretty fetch, tbh
Oh god this sucks
What the hell? Worried about this next release.
Digging: Viet Cong - Viet Cong
Sounds like a Sabbath tribute song.
Digging: Napalm Death - Apex Predator - Easy Meat
whatever there's always Riot I guess
brings the z's
Its sounds like its just a "because of our contract" album
That was terrible
Halford is the most boring part about this. Really generic vocal lines and his voice is so processed. Ouch.
This song could have been really good. Halford's performance and the band's production really bog down the song though.
