Re: New Kamelot single

I'm looking forward to hearing the entire album before making a final decision, but I have to say that I might be 'done' with Kamelot. Not for any other reason than their newer material just leaves me a bit 'meh'. I'm not going to join the 'bring back the 'Karma' era, but that was their best period...

Re: Critical Failure

I found their cover of Queen's Mustapha quite entertaining.

Re: New Stryper - WOW! ...

I've been listening to their new stuff. Here's a brief summary of the modern releases: 1. Reborn (2005). Generic, low quality, mostly forgettable rock. No solos to speak of. Clearly pandering to "modern" listeners. Recommended skip. 2. Murder by Pride (2009). A few steps up from Reborn. So...

Re: New Stryper - WOW! ...

From Michael Sweet (via Facebook): Folks, we were asked (by many fans mind you) to do something a little heavier and that bordered on "thrash". We did just that. We also did it for ourselves, after all this is our art. Many people love it, some hate it. Obviously those who love it like hea...

Re: New Stryper - WOW! ...

I think I'd prefer same old / same old. Not loving the chorus AT ALL. Reminds me of the first time I heard Helloween's "Push." I didn't like it at first, but eventually it grew on me. I think this happens when you transition from the one being screamed at, to understanding why the screami...

Re: I need to list 10 ballads from the prog genre to a friend and I can't remember much

The most heart-wrenching of all to me is "Tears for a Father" from Seventh Wonder. Simply a beautiful track..... Not necessarily as personal or emotionally connected as the aforementioned "Walk" by Pantera, but certainly a close second. :) Not to mention "Pieces" from ...

Re: The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time according to Rolling Stone magazine

Now THEM'S fightin' words!!! What's wrong with "Century Child"??? Okay; I'll bite here. I was really thrown by Century Child when it came out, and I still think it's the 2nd weakest Tarja release (next to Angels Fall First). The inclusion of the duets between Tarja and the bassist left me...

I also would have said Oceanborn or Wishmaster before Once came out, and then Once blew them away.

Re: Queensryche / Rage for Order re-master........

I got into QR with RFO and The Warning at the same time, before Mindcrime came out. Mindcrime indeed struggled for a while: I saw them in 1988 in Philadelphia during the Mindcrime tour and they were opening for Def Leppard. We QR fans had to endure the Def Leppard fans sitting down during the Mindcr...
