Re: new Divine Regale? yes, yes indeed....

I'd never heard the EP, just Ocean Mind. I found that album just a bit bland, maybe over produced? It never made me interested in anything else they'd done. So, should I check this out? ***Scott, the EP is totally different imo. First off, that EP was part of the prog metal movement on the Internet...

Re: Glynn Morgan returns to THRESHOLD!

If you hear someone yelling in joy -- that would be Stevie all the way up in Quebec ........I can hear him down here in RI.

Who knew right ? I finally got used to Damian singing for them, then they go back to the original (and great) vocalist. Wow, what goes around comes around.......

Vangough / Warpaint ...... what happened ?

I haven't seen anyone talk about this disc yet ....... the anticipation build up was there, but not the reviews. I love early Vangough. With each disc though, I notice my enjoyment level going down and down. Manikin Parade ( to me ) is their monster, and definitely a hard disc to top and imo they ha...

Re: SOUND STORM / Vertigo ......cinematic symphonic power metal.

Sadly, this isn't cutting it for me as I'd hoped ....... those of you who don't like your metal speedy should stay clear of this one......

Re: VANDEN PLAS to release live DVD at last! (From 2011 Progpower show)

Label me a complainer - but I don't think this is the greatest setlist for a band that has been around for over 22 years. While I would always want a dvd to come from a Prog Power show (let's face it - it's like re-living greatness over and over again), I think that Vanden Plas should do it up HUGE ...

Have not see anyone talking about these (2) monster discs being re-mastered.
