Many other bands in this genre try to impress with skills (and drag on for too long) rather than with songwriting. The songs on this album are short and sweet.Soilwork Stabbing the DramaSteve Vai Passion and WarfareStuart Hamm Kings of SleepSymphony X V: The New Mythology SuiteTestament Practice What You Preach4.5 superbBruce Dickinson The Best of Bruce DickinsonCanvas Solaris Cortical Tectonics Cinderella Long Cold WinterDecapitated Winds of CreationDream Theater Images and WordsDream Theater WitherDream Theater Live at BudokanDream Theater ScoreDuran Duran Seven and the Ragged TigerDuran Duran RioFaith No More The Real ThingJoe Satriani Surfing With The AlienJoe Satriani Flying In A Blue DreamKISS UnmaskedKISS GoldKorn KornLamb of God KilladelphiaLamb of God Ashes of the WakeMarty Friedman ScenesMetallica ...And Justice for AllOzzy Osbourne The Ultimate SinPantera Cowboys From HellRatt Invasion of Your PrivacySoilwork Natural Born ChaosSoundgarden BadmotorfingerSteve Vai Live at the Astoria London(DVD)Stryper To Hell With the DevilStuart Hamm Radio Free AlbemuthSymphony X Paradise LostSymphony X The OdysseySymphony X The Divine Wings of TragedyTestament First Strike Still DeadlyTestament Live at the FillmoreTestament The Formation of DamnationThe Agony Scene The Agony SceneThe Agony Scene The Darkest RedThe Faceless Planetary DualityThe Faceless Akeldama4.0 excellentAlice in Chains Black Gives Way to BlueI was very pleased to hear they sounded like where they left off.

The Crimson Idol2.0 poorAvenged Sevenfold Sounding the Seventh TrumpetCinderella Still ClimbingFaith No More We Care a LotImpellitteri Pedal to MetalIs it a tribute album or just completely unoriginal? It seems that almost every song is a copy of another band's. Some examples: Destruction sounds like Yngwie's "I'll See The Light Tonight", Stay Tonight is Impellitteri's version of Bon Jovi's "It's My Life", The Fall of Titus is identical to In Flames' "Pinball Map", Punk is like Limp Bizkit or Linkin Park (but this one is clearly intentional), Hurricane cops Layne Staley's vocals (and contains the cheesiest lightning sound effects), and Crushing Daze uses Phil Anselmo's vocal grunts, Black Label Society's guitar squeals and Disturb's riffing - sheesh!
Altogether this is a confused album trying to make it by utilizing all kinds of influences. For younger listeners though this album will come off as catchy, it should - it draws from other successful acts. I'm sure this "plagiarism issue" has been brought up elsewhere, but I checked and didn't find anything but positive reviews.Joe Satriani Joe SatrianiKISS Music from "The Elder"KISS AsylumKorn See You on the Other SideMarty Friedman Music for SpeedingMarty Friedman Tokyo JukeboxMegadeth RiskMichael Angelo Batio Planet GeminiMichael Angelo Batio Lucid Intervals and Moments of Clarity Part 2Pantera Metal MagicPantera Projects in the JunglePantera I Am the NightPantera Power MetalSlayer Undisputed AttitudeSteve Vai Flex-Able LeftoversSteve Vai Alive In An Ultra WorldSteve Vai The Elusive Light and Sound Volume 1Symphony X Symphony XTestament Demonic1.5 very poorMerciless Death Realm of TerrorMetallica St. AngerNapalm Death From Enslavement to Obliteration1.0 awfulMarty Friedman Future AddictI've been a fan of Marty's since Cacophony days.
