    Holy FUCK!
    I bought the new "Visions of Atlantis" album yeaterday. It's called "Eternal Endless Infinity". This is great stuff! Melodic metal with operatic female vocals, and their music is very similar to Nightwish. The singer, Nicole, is only 18 years old, and she has a amazing voice..very soprano, heh..
    My favorite tracks are "Lovebearing Storm" and "Lords of the Sea"..great songs!
    If you're into Nightwish you should definetly check out this album..
    it has a great cover btw :)

    NP: VOA - Lords of the Sea

    The results of my mish today:

    Michael Schenker Group - Assault Attack
    Scorpions - Tokyo Tapes, Animal Magnetism
    Tygers Of Pan Tang - Spellbound, Crazy Nights

    All on vinyl for the combined total of a mere £11.50! I love second-hand shops! :D

    Mmmmm. Brings back many good memories. I always thought that it if you were looking to summarise heavy metal in a single picture, the cover of "Tokyo Tapes" would be a pretty good attempt...

    Some excellent choices there Ayeka! Eagle and I are going to see Tygers on Saturday night! Hope they play some tracks of those particular albums!

    I really hope they do 'Paris By Air' off 'The Cage' album - I know it's commercial but it's a very nice song!

    The only Tygers album I have I think is "Wild Cats". Trying to recall fave tracks....Euthanasia was pretty cool.

    OK here's my recent haul of prog power:

    Pagans Mind - Celestial Entrance
    Wizards - The Kingdom
    Mob Rules - Hollowed be thy Name
    John West - Earth Maker
    Pegazus - Headless Horseman
    Wolf - Black Wings
    Narnia - Long live the King

    Of course I've yet to listen to any of them yet...any idea which should go into the CD player first?

    Personally I would say you should go for Mob Rules and Pagans Mind. I haven't heard the albums in their entirety but what I have heard sounds great!

    I've heard those two are standouts.

    However, I hear Wolf are a very Maiden-esque band, which always sparks an interest. Wizards are supposed to sound like Angra.

    I'll let you know when they get unwrapped....the PQ CD 'seems' to be stuck in my CD player so these other guys might have to wait a while. :D

    Bought a few cd's today:

    Celesty - Reign of Elements, great epic power metal.
    James Murphy - Feeding the Machine, haven't listened yet.
    Myon - Ghost in Paradise, melodic hard rock/metal.
    Symphony X - The Divine Wings of Tragedy, no words needed.

    I've just got a couple of tribute albums. Powergod's "Bleed for the Gods", and Nuclear Blast's all star Maiden tribute, "A tribute to the beast". Both have some good tracks, but given the quality of both Powergod and the participants on the Maiden tribute, both were surprisingly lacklustre overall.

    Wizards - The Kingdom

    Talk about being nicely surpised! If anyone likes Angra (and who wouldn't?), then check out this band. Very good, and very mature sounding considering it's a debut.

    Sounds like a tip top tip JK. You can't go wrong with sounding like Angra in any shape or form. I'll look that album up after Xmas

    Yeah just don't judge the book by the cover (they don't sound as cheesy as they look)....
