Re: LABYRINTH - Architecture Of A God

Seems like the speed is mostly gone if I can trust those two tracks. I'll admit Tiranti sounds a bit whiny but it doesn't take away from those excellent songs. Am I the only one who thinks he looks like Jean-Claude Van Damme? :lol: Yeah he does sound really nasally////Music seems abit dated as well...

Re: Testament - Brotherhood of the Snake

Its a decent affair on par with Dark Roots..but Alex truly saves this cd with his playing..Billy comes up with some great melodies esp on Seven Seals although there are a lot of dumb lyrics that's for sure..high point may be Stronghold....im abit burnout on a lot of the newer thrash offerings and la...

Re: Prog Power lineup for 2017.....

Re: Green Carnation - Light of Day, Day of Darkness show.

I don't really have anything to add other than saying I agree with everything Larry said. One of the best shows I've ever seen at PP. It didn't top Fates Warning ATG for me, but was a very close second. Can anyone tell me about any other Green Carnation disks besides LODDOD? I can't understand how ...
