*slow sarcastic clap for figuring that out, Winny*
Wow, I didn't know he was doing an album. Is it all new sounding stuff?
I love Sanctuary, way better than Nevermore!
Yeah, except for the two covers (the afore mentioned Sisters of Mercy song & a Paul Simon cover) but has guest appearance by former and current band mates too, so it blends a new style with more classic stuff that Warrel has done but isn't that akin to Nevermore musically.
The heavier songs are like a less progressive Nevermore but the quieter ones are very different. The covers are just fillers if you ask me, but the originals are all pretty good. Dane's lyrics are darker than ever, and that's saying a lot.
Lot more personal too.
Lot of stuff about his brother, father, mother & grandfather and how their death seriously affected him (Brother & This Old Man) and even some lyrical references back to his experiences and emotions that helped to write Dreaming Neon Black and the death of his friend after she joined a cult (August).
Still listening to this album and getting more and more out of it with each listen.
Definitely going to be a long stayer in CD rotation once my full order comes through (my promo copy doesn't have good sound quality to it unfortunately).
I'll have to get my grubby hands on a copy of that me thinks, I actually went to JB at the weekend and managed to walk out with nothing, I wanted stuff, just convinced myself I didn't neet it, I felt such a sellout
Actually, something else I've been listening to lately is "Thunder Road" by Bruce Springsteen.
Strangeways - Native Sons.
been listening the the (Charlie) Dominici O3 Trilogy and really liking it.
Part one is awesome solo acoustic stuff, part 2 is very Mindcrime-like (with spoken parts) but lost me half way through the story and 3 is full prog-metal.
the conclusion to the story miffed me a little but overall it's nice and solid and interesting to hear first song to last.
Has anyone else heard/heard of Biomechanical? I just learnt of them recently, not too shabby at all
Having a LIVE day today at work , Bit of Sabbath, Floyd , Deep Purple ..etc
Solar Soul has quickly become one of my favourite albums of recent memory. Fucking. Awesome.
Samael are a bloody top band , their albums for me have always been consistant and their production has been top notch since their Passage album.
Been into the Testament albums Low and Demonic recently, not too shabby
As have I!
Excellent, excellent metal.
Has anyone mentioned/heard Frameshift 2 - the one with Sebastian Bach.
Much better than Angel Down.
I've not heard of it. What is it exactly?
What do you think of Angel Down? I've not got it yet.
I got the new Def Leppard album, Songs from the Sparkle Lounge, last Friday. Despite the awful title it's pretty damn good (at least the first half - haven't listened to the whole thing yet). Parts of it are nice and heavy, which we haven't heard from Da Leps in many years.
The Saints (always)
Cauldron Black Ram and Rookwood's new albums have been getting spun on account of their recent show here.
