Re: DER KAISER - Cannonballs (2018)

Yes, I like it as well - not bad for a bad that hasn't released anything in like... 30 years? The Queen-choirs took a couple of listens to get used to, but they definitely make the band stick out in the crowd. Also, I like how the songs doesn't always follow the usual template with verse/chorus, etc.

... on another board I created a thread entitled the Gentlemen's Corner. Which was a place to swap or even pay forward some gem you found to another collector that would covet it as much as you. It was a lot of fun and I miss that comradery as well.
Now that's a good idea.

Re: Insane Ebay Auctions - Vinyl, Tapes & Merch

If that's the case, that's a really insipid thing to do. Anyone could list an item on Discogs as far as I know. Typical human behaviour, though.

DER KAISER - Cannonballs (2018)

Has anyone bothered checking out the come-back album by DER KAISER? Out on Brennus since September last year.

"Back of plain cover has a small yellow stain."

I wonder what the price would have been without the stain?

Re: Story behind the band CROM(esp)?

I don't know precisely how credible the info is, but the great metal blog Ride Into Glory recently made a guide to Spanish 80's heavy metal [...] This article was an interesting read as well as a good point of entry to the old Spanish scene in general. Thanks mordred! And the passage on CROM (sort ...

Re: Story behind the band CROM(esp)?

A little far-fetched but the cover for "Wasteland" always makes me think of this:

Re: Story behind the band CROM(esp)?

Thank you everyone for the replies - glad to hear there's more CROM-heads out there! DaN: Interesting to hear that both of their albums had made their way to Sverige, I'm positively sure I've never seen em' down here in Gothenburg. :shock: Will check out that site, rumblefist.

Story behind the band CROM(esp)?

A little late to the party I guess, but discovered the Spanish band CROM some time ago and have been digesting their two full-length albums. If there are any Spaniards here, or people into Spanish metal, I'd be curious to learn more about this band. Their albums have such an elaborate presentation, ...

Very nice review. Haven't seen this site before, but it looks very promising content-wise.

Now, if only someone could provide contact information to the band...

Re: Canadian Steel

I'm revisiting some prog/USPM bands from Canada lately and I'm completely into False Witness: Crestfallen King. Got the CD from Arkeyn Steel. The first 4 songs taken from the first demo are absolutely flawless; competing with the best this particular genre has to offer: A godly voice, insane guitar...

Re: Canadian Steel

DEAD CALM - No Way Out
ZIONS ABYSS - T.A.L.E.S.

I'm pretty sure someone must've mentioned these two earlier in the thread, but they deserve a second mention. Excellent power/prog with a touch of darkness.

Reviews of Romanians ALTAR and SECRET added. Rips will be uploaded to Poisonoise tomorrow.
Very cool stuff. That SECRET cover art reminds me of 1970s progressive rock aesthetics. Greenslade's self titled and "Bedsize manners...", etc.
