    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.

    The cynical among us would say don't bother :) Actually, that's not fair. Ripper's actually got a great voice. It's just a shame that he's not allowed to use it. My biggest gripe with Jugulator and Demolition isn't Ripper, it's the quality of the songwriting. It's as if Glenn Tipton has completely forgotten how to pen a decent metal riff. He's certainly capable. His solo album proved that Priest wasn't all Halford's work. But recent Priest albums have just been dull. I think he's been listening to his kids too much (who he's said are into Slipknot, Limp Wristed and the like...)

    Oh, just to stay on topic, the last CDs I bought were Hammerfall's "Hearts on fire" single, and Rammstein's "Feuer Frei!" single. The latter was only to get the video track at the end of the CD (and to test if the copy protection can be defeated -- if not, it's going back, 'coz I only play CDs on my Linux boxen these days). Ayeka's comment at the top got me wracking my brain to try and think of the last thing I bought on vinyl, though. I think it was Xentrix's Ghostbusters 12"

    I love that StormWarrior stuff...reminds me of early Helloween a little. I got the same CD eagle....there is some pretty high quality stuff there.

    Hmmm. Quite a selection, and I've only heard of a few of them before (Stormwarrior, Lonewolf, Thy Majesie, Heimdall, and Wolf). Might be one to look into...

    I like Firewind. You probably know that the guitarist in Firewind play guitar in the swedish power metal band Dream Evil. Don't like Dream Evil that much. The only Dream Evil song that I really like is "In flames you burn", and that's in my opinion their best track..
    I like Firewind better than Dream Evil anyway.. the debut is promising..

    NP: Rain fell Within - Torn Apart

    Have to disagree with you there. "Chasing the dragon" is an excellent track, and IMHO their best. And of course, how can you not like "HMJ" just for being plain ridiculous? It's almost up to the standards of Edguy's "Save us" or Helloween's "Heavy metal hamsters" :)

    There are some familiar names there, like Heimdall, Stormwarrior, Meduza and Highlord, but the one that (for me) stands above all the others is Thy Majestie! I have heard "The King and the Warrior" and "Echoes of War" from their new album "Hastings 1066" and they both rock! I actually ordered the album some time ago but haven't got it yet.
