Re: RUNNING WILD: Not-So Rapid Forays Into Their Catalog

Glad some folks found this ramble interesting and funny :-) Sorry I didn't follow up sooner, been very busy at work AND breaking in a new computer too. Been working my way back through the RW catalog in recent weeks, so let's do some quick hits..... GTP Is indeed a very catchy album, and better than...

RUNNING WILD: Not-So Rapid Forays Into Their Catalog

TL;DR I like Running wild a lot. What do y'all think of 'em? THE UNABRIDGED VERSION Let's start by skipping all the obvious pirate cliches in this review and just hoist the anchor so we can set sail on this topic..... Ooh, avoiding the pirate puns is gonna be harder than I thought. Disclaimer: I con...

Re: TEXAS METAL OUTLAWS

Saw this advertised recently and the concept left me scratching my head. So musicians from a bunch of different groups, most-all of which are underground cult acts from the 80s, are now recording new material. Amiright? I guess that's cool. Kinda. Maybe. It implies there are folks out there thinking...

Re: What's the Worst Bon-Era ACDC Album?

Kristian- that's cheating! You have to pick which gold nugget is slightly less shiny than the others. My knee-jerk response is usually 'Let There Be Rock' (the fact I had to stop and think for a moment to recall the album title indicates this is indeed the album I should answer with). I have to base...

What's the Worst Bon-Era ACDC Album?

Brought to you from the collective mind of nightsblood and bigfootkit, who both love this era of AC/DC. But when you're ranking things, something has to come in last. You may love that last place finisher, but you just don't love it as much as the things that you ranked higher. We decided we should ...

Auburn Records & Manimals Q

So while playing an old favorite on youtube this afternoon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LC306YiymqU I noticed the video mentions an upcoming Manimals collection 'Studies in Scarlet (1982-2012') to be released on Auburn Records. Yay! Oh shoot, there's a catch. The video is from 6 years ago. And w...

Classic Albums You Initially Dismissed

Two for me were 'Rage for Oder' and 'Warning'. I had heard Queensryche's EP, 'Operation Mindcrime', and 'Empire' and liked them all to varying degrees (that's code for the EP is great, Mindcrime is cool, and Empire is boring). For some reason, however, went I finally got RfO and Warning, I didn't re...

Cover Art You See Wrong

It took me years to figure out what the heck is on the cover of Mercyful Fate's 'Melissa'. To me, it always looked like the red streaks were leg bones- a tibia and fibula- laying in a dark pile of what was probably more bones. Since I didn't own a copy of the album, I only saw it from time to time o...

RIOT- Their 2000s Output

Let's start with something I don't understand.... 'Through the Storm' is an awesome RIOT album, undoubtedly my favorite among their 00's output. All the pieces fell into place on those 1st 6 tracks; they are just great and work together so well, I love it! However. The album has a weird ending seque...

Re: SIGN OF THE HAMMER or HAIL TO ENGLAND

Uh, what 'kit said, but with a second helping of praise for the incredible 'Guyana'.
Oh and except that part about Into Glory Ride at the end. Again, not a bad album, just doesn't quite do it for me.

Re: Wrong Speed Metal

Oh good, I was afraid I misunderstood the title of this thread and it was just gonna be about speed metal bands who were really bad and played all wrong. This topic is much more fun! When I got Witchfynde's 'Lords of Sin' LP with the bonus EP, I didn't realize that the EP was supposed to be played a...

Although that description of the Burning Starr material is so broad it could essentially be anything guitar driven.
Uh, are you implying that POISON was guitar-driven? I'm pretty sure there's just a Yamaha synth axe hidden under Brett Michael's cowboy hat.

Re: SIGN OF THE HAMMER or HAIL TO ENGLAND

I don't think we're even, 'cause I do like some Metal Church, I just don't consider the s/t one of the all-time greats :-) Back on topic: I'm asking about these 2 Manowar albums b/c I think many people consider them two of the band's best, and they're similar in some ways: Both have kinda odd produc...
