Re: Lyra's Legacy: For all you old fucks that miss crunch & keys

This is pretty bad ass symphonic metal ...... I've been trying for days to come up with some similarities of bands, and I finally came up with this ....... Serenity meets Angel Dust. If you can imagine what that sounds like - fronted by a Zak Stevens sound-alike singer, then you are in the ball park...

Re: MYRKUR sings Welcome Home by King Diamond....

Looks like Stevie is staying quiet on the new tune as well. I'm betting the rest of it will be typical Stryper since there were guest vocals on the chorus of that song. I'd like to know the tune below is really off a new upcoming King Diamond CD? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlsvxfLwcEo *** I wo...

Re: Death of CD's finally?...

And to be honest, I'd rather pay $7.99 for an instrumental download, than pay $15 for the actual disc, if you can find it ...... But the value of your download after purchase (this more a rental) is 0... For the CD, it's difficult to say how much but it certainly keep a certain value. After a perio...

Re: Starting off the new year with Excalibur and Soul Doubt.....

Any verdict yet on either release? Excalibur seems like it will be a little light in the loafers, and maybe a bit TOO theatrical..... Soul Doubt I tried a couple songs, but neither really engaged me.
