No new fans of Anubis - "A Tower Of Silence" since my post?

Re: Mystery returns to USA for only one show

IQ is supposed to play the album "Ever" entirely. Personally, this is my less favorite IQ album with Peter Nicholls on vocals... This album is 50 minutes long. I hope the other songs they will play will be among my favorites... I will see the show here in Quebec City on October 3rd...

Re: MYSTERY / Lies and Butterflies......

In fact, ( Gaetan ), Mystery was always classified as a prog rock band, it's easy to say that now they are a great Neo-Prog band. if I heard this for the first time, not knowing who it was, I'd think that another great Neo-Prog band was discovered. The only album I don't have is "Mystery"...

If we translate word by word: "erreur typographique" which is ok to say but I have never said that this way in my life... Most common way to say it would be "faute de frappe".

Re: Have we already talked about the neo-prog band Anubis from Australia?

I added the band to my website in the neo-prog section.
To me, "A Tower Of Silence" is truly their best album. It's like Sylvan's "Posthumous Silence".
"The Second Hand" comes second. I don't care much about the other 2 studio albums (1st and 3rd).

Re: Best place to buy digital music?

For me the best is to buy CDs and rip them in flac. At least go flac all the way and convert the flac files to the format you want and the bitrate you want when needed. If you change your mind about the format or the bitrate, simply repeat the process, no problem, your source is perfect (flac files)...

This is interesting... First album in 1992... Clive Nolan on vocals before forming Arena... Karl Groom on guitar before forming Threshold... To be honest, I was a bit skeptical about Clive voice in this band... I think this is because what I heard before was mainly backing vocals with Arena for exam...

Of course the epic song could not be better than "Moviedrome" but this is still a great one!
