Latest CD you bought...

Thought I'd post this since I bought a few cds yesterday/today...

Chroma Key - Dead Air for Radios
Dio - The Last in Line
Dream Child - Reaching the Golden Gates
Hammerfall - Crimson Thunder
Into Eternity - Dead or Dreaming
Jens Johansson - Ten Seasons & Fission
Rage - End of All Days
Twilight Guardians - Tales of the Brave
Virgin Steele - Age of Consent

With the exception of Hammerfall & Into Eternity, they're all used cds so they were rather cheap, I'm not a millionaire.

Virgin Steele, Dio, Into Eternity & Hammerfall all kick major ass!

Nice addition to my weekend playlist.

I haven't "bought" one for a few weeks. Last purchase was the latest Threshold album "Critical Mass" and the next ones to pick up are the new Hammerfall and Symphony X

You've got some classics there Kalmakoff! I've got a few them myself including:

Twilight Guardians - Tales of the Brave (Good solid power metal)

Hammerfall - Crimson Thunder (more commercial but still excellent - this could be the album that really brings them out)

Dio - The Last in Line (We're off to the witch! I'll always love Dio)

My last purchase (finally arrived in the post this morning after about a 2 month wait from amazon) was White Skull's The Dark Age which I've already raved about on another thread. I recommend it very highly!!

Michael Schenker Group - One Night At Budokan
Metal Hammer's Best Of British Steel, featuring:

Acid Reign
After Hours
Death Trash
Deathwish
The Dogs D'Amour
Lisa Dominique
Last Of The Teenage Idols
Lawnmower Deth
Lixx
Mantas
Metal Messiah (bought the album for this band!)
Midnight Blue
Re-Animator
Sabbat
Sacrilege
Soho Roses
Tattooed Love Boys
Tigertailz
Torino

They don't do compilations like that nowadays, do they? Well, not in this country anyway...

the last cd I bought :
Dreamtale - Beyond Reality
Ok album..Nothing original, but quite good. Some of the songs are just great!
My favorite tracks on this album has to be:

Time of Fatherhood - Catchy mid tempo chorus. The lyrics are alittle bit special though..

Dreamland - Love the chorus on this one. The female vocals are excellent!

Silent Path - Very nice ballad..gives me goosebumps

Farewell - This track reminds me strongly of Nightwish, with the keyboards and all..maybe a little bit inspired by Tuomas and co a great track..again a spectacular chorus


Really looking forward to their next release!

NP: Stratovarius - SOS

No fucking way dude!!!! Fucking Metal Messiah...they're on this obscure thrash compilation I bought last summer, I've been trying to find out more about each of the bands but it's taken up til now to even get one more song by any of them......duuuuuuuuuude!!! Metal Messiah fucking rock

Sabbat didn't impress me too much, but a lot of the other thrash stuff on there was quite good. Acid Reign and Re-Animator, especially, I thought. Lawnmower Deth were a laff too gotta love the glam shit on there too, though. Man, for a Metal Hammer compilation to feature more than one type of metal...you knew this could only have happened in 1989!

Obviously you like it then! I've been meaning to look into it for a while. Given that Federica was such a big part of making White Skull sound the way they did, I wasn't sure how they'd do without her. How does Gus compare?

About White Skull...how does their new stuff compare to "Tales from the North"? That's the only album I've heard from them and it didn't quite impress me.

I've just borrowed the new Hammerfall album...listened to it twice up my mate's pad, it truly is fucking awesome! I love this band now!

Seems like this year's been a good one for power metal, am I right? I mean, I'm unfamiliar with most of the big names but it really does seem like there's been some really good shit going down lately....

I too like Hammerfalls new release "Crimson Thunder", but I think Renegade is better...
"Templars of Steel", "Destined for Glory" and "The Champion" are the bands best songs ever..in my opinion anyway..
I really like Joacim Cans vocals on the new album. He has a amazing voice..it fits their music perfect.
My favorite tracks on Crimson Thunder is:
Brothers of the Storm, Crimson Thunder and The unforgiven Blade

Not a bad album, but not their best..

NP: Hammerfall - The unforgiven Blade

And you're completely right, it' been a year of great power!
A lot of great albums released:
Rhapsody - Power of the Dragonflame
Nightwish - Century Child
Freedom Call - Eternity
Shaman - The Ritual
Hammerfall - Crimson Thunder
Pagans Mind - Celestial Entrance (prog. album of the year!)
+++more

NP: Hammerfall - Heros Return

He's certainly an acquired taste and a very aggressive vocalist and I sure he'll get some criticism from die hard fans which is expected. Although IMO opinion he's brought a new dimension to the band. However musically this is their greatest release so it would be interesting to see how the album would have sounded with Fererica on vocals.

I would not like to make comparisons between the 2 of them though because I love Public Glory/Secert Agony so much too.

Renegade was my first Hammerfall album too (don't have the others ) ... me and my Crimson Thunder-owning mate were converted about two years back by the video for Renegade the song, back on the ol' Friday Night Rock Show (R.I.P.). It truly is a mighty album!

Oooh, and don't you mean Riders Of The Storm that's one of my favourites too along with Trailblazers and Dreams Come True. I'm a sucker for soppy love songs!

I'm going through a totally retro phase at the moment.

The last albums I bought were:

Spreading the disease - Anthrax
Persistence of time - Anthrax
Coroner - Coroner
Act III - Death Angel

I love the old thrashy stuff.

I would totally recommend "Critical Mass" by Threshold. Symphony played it to me and it's incredible. Sooo heavy yet melodic and complex. Top stuff and I'm not just saying that because Karl is such a top bloke!

Has anyone got "Winds of Change" by Venom's Mantas? I have it on LP and it rules. It's very 80's but then it was recorded in '86! It's almost Power Metal in places.
