Re: Lance King - Reprogram...

Looking forward to Lance King. I hated the latest DT, as I thought The Astonishing was complete garbage. Hopefully they've learned to write quality music again, although I still can't stand Labrie. Haven't liked anything he sung since Scenes of a Memory.

Re: New Seventh Wonder tune

Well, shit. I just got this in the mail today and I haven't heard a note yet. Now I'm hesitant. I also received the Romeo solo disc and some cool AOR with Groundbreaker. I've had a crap year music wise and I'm not anxious to add to my disappointment. I'm sure I'll peel the shrinkwrap and spin this ...

Re: New Seventh Wonder tune

Didn't the song "Inner Enemy" suppose to be on this album? Man, I love that song and I always thought it was an album teaser for the next one.... I hope they just don't scrap it......

Re: New Seventh Wonder tune

I'm going to be the contrarian here. This album is a chore. This is just capital p Progressive Metal that resembles itself from 8 years ago near perfectly. Nothing's changed (except the bass disappeared), nothing new on offer except new cheesy lyrics. It's...comfort food metal just like the new Kam...

Re: New Seventh Wonder tune

So far I've only cared for 1 of the 3 new songs I've heard. the others seemed very lackluster. The musicianship is great as always, but these didn't hit me the way the tunes from Mercy Falls hit me when I first heard them...... So sad too as I was really looking forward to this one.

Re: New Seventh Wonder tune

So I just got to hear the new record, "Tiara". The long and short of it is this; it sounds exactly like a safe Seventh Wonder album. Basically, if you take the narrative of "Mercy Falls" and the approach of "The Great Escape", you get this record, but it doesn't go far...

Re: Dynazty - Firesign (Sept 27th)...

How Did Dynazty do at Progpower by the way last year? I didn't hear much about them after the event, but I'm thinking it's probably due to the short set they probably had........

Anxious to hear the new one!

Soul Seasons is great Guy! I think I remember picking this up at an old Powermad Festival. Or maybe I got it f...

Re: Alien Weaponry

I wish I liked thrash so I could be into these folks. I just...really don't like thrash at all. I gave them a shot when NPR did a feature on them months ago, and I love the concept but ehhhh. My loss, I guess. You don't like thrash? Do you like death metal? Black metal? Old stuff like Sepultura? Ev...

Re: WALLS OF BABYLON - A Portrait Of Memories

Guillaume, I agree on Leverage big time!!! Peika Heino is an absolutely amazing under-rated singer. I love his mid-ranges, especially on songs like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZFi_g3jyGw the vocals on this are soooo good and emotional, and he doesn't sound like anyone else, which is another plu...

I'm one of the few who think that the original Zero Hour (then re-released as Metamorphosis) is one of the best prog metal discs ever.......I still do, and when Metamorphosis was released, it was like hearing it for the first time all over again ........ I think the thick production, the keyboards,...

Zero Hour - The Towers of Avarice

I broke this cd out for the first time in a long time tonight......... Man, I forgot just how good this cd is. It seems pretty timeless too. It doesn't feel like it's dated....Still one of my favorites of all time!!
