    The Disperse guitarist Jakub Zytecki released an instrumental demo back in 2010as a free download http://got-djent.com/release/demos-2010. Some of the stuff ended up becoming songs on the new disperse album.





    Dude is a genius

    My faves so far in 2013, in no particular order:

    SAXON-sacrifice
    HELKER-somewhere in the circle
    TAINTED NATION-F.E.A.R.
    AUDREY HORNE-youngblood
    SHAKRA-powerplay
    PRETTY MAIDS-motherland
    CIRCLE II CIRCLE-seasons will fall
    STRYPER-second coming

    I think some tracks of the new AVANTASIA are killer (Black Orchid, Invoke The Machine) but as a whole, it's not grabbing me as much as the last few ones so far. I like the new VOODOO CIRCLE as well.
    I'm really looking forward to the new VOLBEAT.

    Can't get into the Pretty Maids that much yet. Pandemonium was better for me.!

    Really? I also think Pandemonium is probably better overall and it took me a couple listens but I'm really into Motherland now. Songs like Hooligan, Motherland, The Iceman, Sad To See You Suffer, etc... are as good as they did in the past IMO.

    Man I love Mark Basile's vocals. DGM usually has a nice melodic chorus as well with great vocal layers. Simone Mularoni as a lead guitarist is incredible. He is in the league of a VERY few guitarists in that department. However, as a rhythm guitarist, he is WAY too busy for my ears. If he could learn how to play a power chord, DGM would be one of my absolute favorite bands out there. I still really like them mind you, but they could add so much more by doing a little less at times in their songs. Wasn't aware of the new release though. Will have to check it out. Thanks for the heads-up.

    Ok....so far my favorites of the year are:

    Stratovarius - Nemesis..... Who the hell saw this coming?? Just a flat out KILLER slab of power metal joy.
    Stryper - Second Coming......I openly admit to being a HUGE fanboy. I love the updated versions and the two new cuts are great!!!
    Crashdiet - The Savage Playground........Fun, fun, fun disc.
    W.E.T. - Rise Up.......AOR brilliance. JSS and Erik both handling vocals?? Insane. Melodic disc of the year so far.
    Helloween - Straight Out Of Hell........they just continue to never disappoint.
    Jimi Jameson - Never Too Late......the man still sounds smooth as ever.

    Looking forward to the new Avantasia, Timo Tolkki Avalon, Fair Warning, The Poodles......what a great year for hard rock and metal!!
