Personally i like the Ashbury "Endless Skies" album because it reminds me of a lot of the old Southern Rock stuff i love, such as The Outlaws and Henry Paul Band.
Frankly, I couldn't give a fuck what's considered "cool" in underground metal circles, or anywhere else for that matter.
I actually see a lot of parrallels between the Metal & Southern scenes of yore; a predominantly working class audience, extended guitar soloing, soulful singers, epic/historic lyrical themes etc etc
I get your point about the double standard concerning the praise heaped on Ashbury, and the vitriol sometimes aimed at Blackie Lawless's band though.
It seems a little hypocritical to me too.

(Sipping a nice cup of tea - probably not considered "cool" in underground metal circles :D )

By request, I reuploaded my mix. Here is the link for anyone who might have missed it the first time.

I see Full Moon (US) mentioned here, what about the other Full Moon from UK? The s/t LP 1989 is a great piece of almost-metal Epic Prog Rock...

Thanks a lot! Just recently I talked to a friend about this comp you made (telepathic powers involved?), but I couldn't find it anymore. I was also in doubt if it was one of Fenriz's many compilations or not. Solved now! :wink:

Can't stop listening to that JIM PACHECO's song. Definitely my kind of stuff.

Got this lp a few months back, this song especially reminds me a bit of Ashbury:

The album is recommended, very nice US hard rock with prog influences, with a bit of southern rock and AOR too

Be sure to listen at the 3:15 mark and onward for some insane Skynyrd/Buck Dharma-inspired solos.

Holy cow! Buck Dharma inspired solos. And not bad. I've only had time to listen to A-side.

Can anyone explain to me what the appeal of this band is?

"Endless Skies" has a lot more in common with 70's rock bands then anything metallic of the 80's.
