Re: ProgPower USA XX

You can ask Larry, Todd & Troy about my reaction to the Day 3 & 4 lineup. They said that was the most excited they had ever seen me about a lineup, and I think they are correct. For me, the Day 3 & 4 lineup is probably the strongest ever. What was unique about it was that I knew and like...

Re: Anyone else having trouble with Google Chrome ?

I seem to recall some slowness in the last week or so, but seems fine today. I've made tons of changes on my side last week, so I assumed it was on my side but maybe not.

Re: The Paradox Twin- The Importance of Mr. Bedlam

Agreed, this is an outstanding disk. From Glenn's description it sounded like something I would like and I'm glad I checked it out. This is just the kind of thing I've been enjoying lately.

Re: New Redemption song / video just released 9/10

I was thinking the keep in "keep of dreaming" could be a noun referring to a castle, as in "the innermost and strongest structure or central tower of a medieval castle". That could be a pretty cool image. I like that better!

I did find 7digital (https://us.7digital.com/) where you can get 320kbps or FLAC. Google Play has 320kbps MP3s. The next ...

The Orphaned Land is my #1 disk of the year and I am pretty sure it will remain there until the end of the year. It truly is as good as Mabool if not better and that's saying a lot. #2 is Amorphis. Beyond that not much else has connected with me yet this year, but there are lots of disks coming out ...

As far as disks we're looking forward to, I'm surprised no one mentioned Kingcrow. For some reason the wait for this one is bothering me more than other anticipated disks. Not sure if it's because I pre-ordered it about a year and a half ago, but the wait for this one really seems long.
