| ||Midnight Dice Hypnotized|
Quality traditional metal with a great sense of melody and engaging songwriting even on the longer songs.
| ||Spellbook (USA-PA) Magick & Mischief|
This is quite enjoyable but also slightly disappointing because "Amulet/Fare Thee Well" reveals some significant potential which is not realized on any of the other tracks on here. Otherwise, these guys can create some cool melodic metal that brings to mind Thin Lizzy, Deep Purple and Night Demon from the more modern bands.
| ||Derek Sherinian The Phoenix|
Even though I'm a fan of Sherinian and some of the participants on here, this didn't do much for me, as it feels more like an exercise or music for musicians, rather than actual songs. Other than that, there are some good ideas and parts scattered throughout.
| ||Greyhawk Keepers of the Flame|
If you're into '80s heavy metal and bands like Judas Priest, Dio, and Manowar, this is your shit. These guys know how to write great songs and create an epic and fun atmosphere.
| ||Blind Guardian Legacy Of The Dark Lands|
The rating for this one is downright awful. With a little bit of imagination, this is pure magic.
| ||Zakk Sabbath Vertigo|
Really good rendition of the classic Black Sabbath s/t album. The band's performance is great and very close to the originals, and what might surprise you is the similarity between Zakk and Ozzy's voices. All in all, a really enjoyable album.
| ||The Atomic Bitchwax Scorpio|
Great balls-out heavy rock with an array of catchy riffs and cool solos. You can count on this one to have a good time.
|Jethro42 I don't post comments anymore in any thread, but I always read my shoutboxes. It's guys like you that make me want to come back sometimes, but not yet in any case. I'm touched by your post, bro. You're also a nice guy, it's always been clear for me. Sputnik one day, Sputnik all the way.|
|garas Your soundoff on the Zakk Sabbath album is 100% perfect.|
|Titan I hear you man, life takes over! All is well on my end, just had another kid, so we've been busy haha...|
|Titan Manos bro, haven't heard much from you lately. Miss you man...|
