Re: ATLANTEAN KODEX Course of Empires

Quick reply: I really love the new album, perhaps even more than 'The White Goddess'. the new one feels more complete somehow, though it may just be due to the longer track list. Regardless, AK is still my most favorite band of this New Iron Age.

MORE, 'Metal Explosion', and Time Travel

I recently got the 2 LP comp 'NWOBHM at the BBC Friday Rock Show Sessions vol 2'. First band on side 1 is MORE. Ugh. MORE? Really?! That's how you wanna start your NWOBHM comp?! Back up about 27 fucking years ago and I was buying my second NWOBHM album, the 'Metal Explosion' comp featuring tunes fro...

ATLANTEAN KODEX Course of Empires

Why don't I see a thread for this yet?
As my favorite band of this millennium, I'm gonna let others discuss this before I ramble on forever about it. Also, it's late and I'm sick, so this has to wait for another day. But let's at least get this Ouroboros rolling....

Re: Cirith Ungol

Sorry for the lineup typo in my review. I spent a long time digging around trying to figure out whether Jerry Fogle & Flint had actually recorded some of the music for the album but then left the lineup prior to the album's release or if the new guys really did record most-all of the music on the al...

Comparing the 2 CRUCIFIXION Anthologies

Anyone know why both High Roller & CUlt Metal classics have near-identical CRUCIFIXION anthologies released this year? The HR collection includes one extra song, 'Sacrifice', which I'm unfamiliar with. Does anyone know if one version has better sound quality, better packaging/liner notes, etc? Much ...

Label Colors on NEAT Records

While comparing 2 Neat Records copies of Venom's 'Welcome to Hell' LP, I noticed that the lettering on the labels were different colors; one copy had blue lettering while the other copy had green. Discogs lists 2 additional colors too : silver & red. Do these different colors correspond to different...

Re: The Track 5 Theory

Mordred- I figured Rhapsody would support my theory. I bet Stratovarius does too, but I'll let someone else do the legwork to confirm that suspicion. Kit- I hereby put you in charge of testing Track 5 Theory to see if it does indeed apply across subgenres. If so, we may have actually stumbled upon a...

The Track 5 Theory

Hi folks- Yes, it's been awhile since I visited. Been a kinda shitty year at home and at work, but things have settled a tad, so I finally caught up on some Corro reading. While doing so I noticed that Noisenik had posted a reply in my old RUNNING WILD thread expressing interest in trying to prove m...

Re: "Run of the mill" albums

A couple that I may have mentioned in previous threads: Stormwarrior- they rehash a lot of old Helloween (Walls-era) and Running WIld, but I have no problem listening to their albums over and over. Orchid- 'Capricorn'. Blatant rip-off of early Black Sabbath. It's not a milestone in doom in any way, ...
