Re: Question about Praying Mantis - for you AoR people....

I've heard the new Praying Mantis album already, and since it's germane to the conversation, I'll say it was severely underwhelming to me. I'll give you that he's a pretty good singer, but the band is sounding pretty weak right now. They can't give him the showcase he needs. Did you like the previo...

In case of the "The Outer Limits", I have both, the original MCA edition CD and the Metal Mind Remaster CD. Too me, the proper edition is the original MCA edition. This is I think the same master used for this 2018 Japan CD reissue. Which is to me a good thing... Never heard the Metal Min...

Re: Royal Hunt - Cast In Stone

New album is not bad, but I think the keyboards overpowering the guitars is never a good idea... I don't see myself playing it very often.

My fave RH albums remain the first 2 with John West, when the guitars were really heavy and more upfront.

Crunchy guitars, tight musicianship, nice melodies and powerful female vocals by Gemma Fox. Excellent stuff, check this out. This band would be a gre...
