musical taste

favorite bands
Cauldron In Ruin
Catchy, casual 70's/80's throwback. This is a no-frills deal; you'll know exactly what you're in for listening to any of the nine tracks. Fair background music for an 80's themed party that's nearing its end.
Delain Moonbathers
Well I'll be a monkey's uncle, Delain actually matured enough to craft an objectively solid album. This is what I hoped and doubted they'd do after The Human Contradiction, and I have my fingers crossed for whatever they do from here on. This has the potential to be better than the new Epica album, if "Universal Death Squad" was any indication.
Sabaton The Last Stand
Like a Stouffer's version of Swedish Meatballs.
Hammock Raising Your Voice... Trying to Stop an Echo
Takes everything that worked on Kenotic and channels it into an entire album, resulting in a euphoric collaboration of music and emotion. This isn't just Hammock in top form, this is music at its finest, the kind that not only draws from the artists' inspiration, but also draws upon the listener's own experience and interpretation. It always feels transparent, and reminds us what music can, at its greatest, achieve.
Blind Guardian Tales from the Twilight World
Another noticeable step forward, this was when Blind Guardian were finally beginning to realize their strengths and essentially hit the ball running.
Blind Guardian Follow the Blind
A stronger, heavier and more consistent affair than Battalions of Fear, Follow the Blind sees Blind Guardian on a proper path to improvement, indicating more of their potential and influence.
Blind Guardian Battalions of Fear
A fair first offering by a band that would evolve into something truly great and grand.

  • ijy10152 So I've read a few of your reviews and I really like your writing style. I help manage the website Progulator.com and I was wondering if you'd like to write with us.
