I know. I *LOVE* Under the Sun and Innocent but somehow can't get into whole album. Mac-era works better for me :?


To each his own. I loved Mac on his first few albums but Clone is where it's at for me. The last few with him and Damian were way too chorus happy for me.

I know I'm in the minority though. :o


Certainly (to each his own) :)

They got more epic with Critical Mass and especially Subsurface (which is also one of my favorites from them). Also, Mac got better with each album although he had a lot of problems with alcohol (or so I've heard and read).

Dead Reckoning is IMHO less epic but still cathy; Slipstream, This Is Your Life, Hollow, One Degree Down are all excellent songs and Mac sounds great.

Dead Reckoning, Psyche and Journey arrived today! Five more on the way. I'll have a lot to listen to while moving and unpacking next week.

Mac was always my favorite Threshold vocalist, but I admit to being a little stoked at this news. Morgan was very good on Psychedelicatessen, although it is far from my favorite Threshold album.

Can anyone tell me what Damian posted on FB that might have caused him to get fired?

Assumptions is all we have. I interviewed Richard West a few years ago in Estonia. He confirmed the rumour that Glynn Morgan did ask for an audition when Mac left Threshold in 2007. By coincidence and just few weeks before Mac left, Damian Wilson and Richard had had a conversation where Damian said that he actually missed singing in Threshold. Damian had also had been in stronger contact with the band than Glynn after he left, so according to West, they didn't consider bringing Glynn back to band at that point. Damian was the only option to replace Mac. Also, Richard said that they didn't even want to find a "new" singer since they felt that Threshold fans have certain expectations and they want to keep their fanbase happy. The point is that Glynn Morgan could have replaced Mac back in 2007 if the stars would have been aligned differently at that point.

I also met Damian in Estonia. We didn't talk much, but he seemed to be very open person. We know that he likes to hang out with the fans and obviously he also likes to party which might have had something to do with the band firing him. Then again, why let him do the vocals for the new album and then fire him? Maybe West and Groom weren't happy with his performance and decided to bring Glynn back. Tough decision but then again West had worked with Glynn in League of Lights and knows that Glynn is still as good as he was back in 1994.

I guess we'll know more when the dust settles a bit.

Damian also clarified in one of his follow-up statements that he is excited to hear Glynn singing the material because Glynn's voice has a "gravel" that he knows he doesn't have himself. Why would he say that if at least someone, if maybe not himself, thinks Damian was not the right fit for this album or that Glynn would be better?

While DW is one of my favorite vocalist, perhaps Glynn will help Threshold find their balls again. Seriously hope they go heavier.

Legends of the Shires going to be a DOUBLE album. And Glynn Morgan on second guitar... very interesting.

From their FB page:

THRESHOLD have released the first official picture of their new line-up featuring returning vocalist Glynn Morgan.

The band are currently at Thin Ice Studios in England putting the finishing touches on their new concept album »Legends Of The Shires«. The record is due for release through Nuclear Blast later this year and it will be the band's first ever double album.

Karl Groom commented: "The music just would not stop flowing during the writing process. We decided that while the ideas were of a high standard, we would keep writing and are very excited by what we have."

THRESHOLD will be back on the road across Europe at the end of the year, kicking off in Athens on November 12th and rounding off with a homecoming show in London on December 10th. Glynn Morgan will also play guitar during the shows, which will include tracks from »Legends Of The Shires« as well as plenty of blasts from the past!

It only says Glynn is the rhythm guitarist live. But I feel he will do that in studio too.

If he does, at least they keep the double-guitar attack that is essential to Threshold. And also, knowing Morgan, the material will acquire the requisite grit and intensity to back up his voice.

I am actually quite curious to hear what will become of this turn of events. It still has a shot at ranking very high in my AOTY.
