I believe there was a thread where Glenn asked if we had discovered any new stuff since the roster announcement.... Well, my first delivery of PPUSA 2017 band cd's showed up today and I've been listening, trying to give everybody a fair shot before passing judgment. But, something different this year...I plan on spinning them at least 3 or 4 times no matter how much they are or are not grabbing my attention. Angel Dust...Never been a fan but never really gave them a chance either, so I bought Bleed and Of Human Bondage. I've only briefly scanned each disc. So far so good...I'll spend some time with these cd's, they aren't too bad! Pain...I do not like Industrial...never have & probably never will. In saying that, I bought You Only Live Twice & Cynic Paradise. First opinion, I could listen to this as background music while doing something else...if only the lyrics weren't so fucking awful! There's a few songs here and there that are ok, so I'll focus on those and hope that Pain plays them next year, similar to how I waited patiently for Clarion Call, Age of Runes and Halls & Chambers with Falconer Katatonia...another band that never really floats my boat, but the newest cd has a few gems on it, so I will spend some time digging in to some of the older stuff. A few things kinda remind me of Opeth, the old, listenable Opeth, I mean, so... Power Quest & Twilight Force and next on my list...cheesy power metal gets limited airplay in my house, but I love seeing these type of bands playing live, so I will learn at least some of the material before next year so I can bounce in my seat... So...what has grabbed you guys so far?
