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...

Re: Tracking & Hunting Stories by request (Dan)

This story is from last month, so not very retro-kvlt but what the heck....

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, ...

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...
