ANTHEUS-Silent Agony

I searched for a post about this album released last year and found none. This is very good melodic "traditional" prog metal from France (sung in English) that should appeal to some here I guess. Here's the preview of the album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-cUgAp42Luc Only 1 full song ...

Re: Orden Ogan - Gunman

They're one of the best power metal bands out there, and one that does something interesting with the format. I've actually known about them since before "Vale" came out, and they've never disappointed me yet. Even though no one else does, I consider "Easton Hope" to be one of t...

Re: I "might" have to go digital soon .... need some ideas.

We just went mostly digital after Prog Power last year. So far the experiment seems to be positive. We are lucky to have cars that have USB aux in, though the Chevy audio system only sees the first 5K songs of any non iPod USB drive, so even if we have a 64 GB USB drive, it only sees about 40 of it...

Larry, In terms of your car, finding a new head unit that has both auxiliary inputs and plays CDs isn't that difficult. Depending on the model of your car, installation can be very simple too.

The 2nd album by this oddly named Swedish band (no one in the band is actually called JD Miller) is quicky becoming one of my faves of 2017. Thick riffing, catchy melodies, very good vox, all the ingredients are there for me to love. And the production is top notch. Their first disc was forgettable ...

I liked the first track, but this one's not nearly as good. It feels tired and completely by-the numbers. It's exactly why I worry about Frontiers having songwriters making far too many albums. They deplete their best ideas for projects that make one album and disappear. Weird but I'm not surprised...
