Re: Marc McMillan’s NWOBHM Encyclopaedia

I remember there was talk of a new edition almost as soon as I got my copy when it had first come out. I seem to remember that somebody corrected that and said it was just a reprint but I am very hazy on the details. Of course, there has been murmurs of a new edition for years now - wonder if that w...

Re: Who's Cranking the New CIRITH UNGOL Today?

Thanks for posting the Last Rites article - good read. Agreed on the sound of the LP - I am not happy with that. The guitars should be loud and clear, not muddled up, like they are there. I am very happy with everything else though. Good to great songs, arrangements are great, the artwork is to die ...

Re: Who's Cranking the New CIRITH UNGOL Today?

Not me, I'm expecting it here on Friday. Optimistic about the quality, though it will take months to decide whether or not it lives up to the old albums. Have to say I'm very happy with Tim Baker's vocals after the reunion. At times, his lower "near-growl" feels even better than the higher-pitched s...

Re: Bulgarian Metal

Thanks for sharing both the Phonoexpress song and especially Slavjani. The latter was excellent. Found some other songs from Phonoexpress which were nowhere near as good, not unexpectedly. The song linked to here was very enjoyable. I'm sure everyone here is very familiar with albums with one or a c...

Re: What old cult metal bands have all original members?

I got recently into a debate about the current Judas Priest lineup. Should it be considered as Judas Priest? or Ian and friends band? Don't have strong opinions on that but is it not reasonable to accept greater changes of membership in bands which have been in existence continuously rather than in...

Probably not going next year for the first time since...2006 I think. Missing Legend is painful but the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune are at work

Re: "Run of the mill" albums

Sometimes this might be determined by when you listen to an album. I'm gonna lose everybody on this board with this example, but I was kinda surprised when I found out that Cannibal Corpse's "Gore Obssessed" album was actually considered a weaker one by many people. It was one of the first albums I...

Re: Arc - Raiders of the Lost Arc

I'm quite happy with this release. No problem with rehersal tracks being released if they sound as good as this. ARC's songwriting is a bit variable in quality but there are a few really good tracks on it apart from the obvious. I particularly like Leviathan, even though it is the least metallic tra...

Re: First ever interview with Sorcery {sinister soldiers]!

Thank you for posting that. The album is quite good for someone interested in 70s protometal (for lack of a better term). Will read the interview for sure.

Re: Lethean - Hope's Flame Burns Low

I'm sold on this. Sounds really course and raw, just like I prefer it, though with some melody. Good stuff!

Re: Snakepit # 22

I am reading the new issue now. Have to say, I'm very happy with it all. I agree that some interviews are rather long when it's bands I am not that interested in, but I usually skim those and read properly those I am interested in. The Slayer feature was great BTW. Steven Craig does not strike me as...

Re: (Metal) Recordstores in Stockholm ?

A pity you're working, we could have grabbed a few beers otherwise. Thanks for the tips for new recordstores. Didn't know about MJ Retro or An Ideal for Living. I've been to Record Hunter before, but they were very disappointing at the time (2009, perhaps?). Three years ago, I found some stuff in So...
