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...

Re: Why Don't I Like METAL CHURCH s/t More?

I fully acknowledge, endorse, and embrace my being weird :-) Yeah, I know I'm very out of step with most of the community on this one. What can I say? No one loves 'em all. For the record I do like Wayne's vocals a lot more on 'The Dark'. He didn't change styles, but for whatever reason his singing ...

Why Don't I Like METAL CHURCH s/t More?

Been playing a lot of the old classics lately, especially lots of Savatage, WASP, Riot, etc, so I figured I'd spin 'Metal Church' for the first time in a short age. I still just don't quite get this album. Decent band. Decent songwriting. Nothing much to complain about. But I just don't hold it in t...

Re: CIRITH UNGOL - New Live Album

There's a new studio track available on bandcamp too What, were you looking for a link? I said it's on bandcamp. Surely you wankers can find it yourselves. Bloody hell, everyone wants a direct link to everything nowadays. Back in my day, if you wanted to hear a new Cirith Ungol track, you had to wai...

Re: Weird Finds While Cleaning Out Your Collection

Remember reading an interview with Dio in Metal Maniacs where he said everything was a rip off of Louie Louie.... :lol: And the funny thing about this is that I fucking hate that song. Yeah, I'm a fan of LOTS of oldies stuff- grew up listening to all that 50s-60s era music- and I never liked this o...
