    It might be available in Powerbooks.

    I found Iron Maiden's 16th album(that's their latest right? please correct me if otherwise) at Tower Records Shangri-La branch this morning. Out of joy, I picked it up. wahahaha. I was just happy to see a metal disc in a decidedly mainstream shop. :D

    Grabe! Meron palang MACHINE HEAD na binebenta dito. Pakisabi saan meron. PLEASE. Matagal ko nang gusto magkaroon ng ganon.

    Nakakita na ako ng PISSING RAZORS na cd but hindi ako sigurado kung bibilhin ko 'yun. Maganda ba? Nakabasa na kasi ako ng mga review pero mukhang 'di ako naimpress.

    And dami palang metal dvd's sa riverbanks. Ang alam ko kasi niraid na 'yon dati kaya nagsi-alisan na yung mga vendor kaya 'di na ako nakabalik. Pero bumalik na ba yung mga vendor? Sana naman nakabalik na sila and dami kong gustong bilhin.

    @Bringer of War: I bought my copy of Machine Head's "Through the Ashes of Empires" at Music One SM Megamall early last year. You can try Tower and Music One branches. Maybe you can approach their customer service and have it ordered if it isn't in stock. It'll be easy for them to restock that title 'coz it was manufactured and distributed locally by Sony Music Phils.

    Dude, kung ma-raid man ang mga dvd vendors sa Riverbanks sa umaga, sa hapon bukas na uli sila. Malalakas talaga ang loob ng mga vendors na yan. They were even open during the holy week!

    @RosesofShadow: Ang corny nga nung Angel of Retribution na version na released dito e, regular version lang. In the US and Europe, there are two other versions: the first comes with a bonus dvd of a recent Priest performance. The second is a dual disc which plays the audio tracks on one side and the live dvd content on the other. Fuck, sana ma-release dito yung may bonus dvd!

    Shit ganun ba, regular version lang, medyo nahihiligan ko na kasi yung Angel of Retribution, pero ang panget ng kantang Revolution ha, di ko trip, maganda Deal With the Devil, Judas Rising at Hellrider, ung iba papakinggan ko ulet.

    @RosesofShadow: Yeah, that first single "Revolution" stinks. I also prefer the same tracks you mentioned. I even like the last song, the long and dirgey "Lochness". Were you able to download the entire album? I burned myself a copy already but I'm still definitely getting the cd.

    yeah, downloaded it all plus the relolution singles... yeah, I'm curious about the song Lochness too, I'll play it as soon as I have the time to even turn my computer on :)

    I think I'm in the mood of watching DVDs too, damn, is the Kreator DVD great?

    @Rosesofshadow: That Kreator dvd is one of best metal dvds ever released. It's highly regarded because of how definitive it is. It has a complete concert, a video biography (most other metal dvds' band biography are just in text and you ahve to read it from the tv screen), a discography and all their music videos. I haven't seen the pirated dvd so I don't know if all of the features work. I was able to borrow an original copy from a friend and it is excellent.

    i have a feeling that victory record dumps a shitload of stuff here in davao...

    not complete, but i think they have albums from...

    dead to fall (everthing i touch falls to pieces)
    hatebreed (satisfaction is the death of desire)
    integrity (bringing it back)
    strife (one truth/ angermeans/ truth through defiance)
    snapcase (designs for automation/ end transmission)
    earth crisis (marami, but i forgot the titles)
    freya (as the last light drains)
    buried alive (last rites/ the death of your perfect world)
    all out war (for those who were crucified)
    a.18 (foreverafternothing)
    waterdown (never kill the boy on the first date)
    atreyu (suicide notes and butterfly kisses)
    hoods (time the destroyer/ pray for death)
    darkest hour (so sedated, so secure/ hidden hands of a sadist nation)
    bloodlet (three humid nights in the cypress trees)

    not really new stuff, and kakainis kasi wala pa yung mga bago tulad ng villainy and virtue ng dead to fall, condemned to suffer by all out war, and the curse by atreyu...

    what really sucks is the fact that it is near impossible to find albums from trustkill and relapse...

    oh, yeah, if anyone of you guys might want to know, there is also a small shop that sells metal videos...

    they have...

    six feet under
    insision
    carcass
    meshuggah
    poison the well
    iron maiden
    metallica
    megadeth
    anthrax
    slayer
    amon amarth
    eighteen visions
    deicide
    cradle of filth
    dimmu borgir
    anata
    behemoth
    the dillinger escape plan
    nevermore
    shadows fall
    mudvayne (aww come on, it's ok considering it's nu-metal)
    chimaira
    the black dahlia murder
    glass casket
    zao
    martyr a.d.
    atreyu
    soilwork
    in flames
    hypocrisy
    impaled nazarene
    syconaut
    killswitch engage
    exhumed
    lacuna coil
    kataklysm
    arch enemy
    unearth
    lamb of god
    god forbid

    ewan ko...
    marami pa...

    kumpleto ko kasi ang series...
    mga 174 videos na ata napapanood ko...

    Welcome to the UM board. Unfortunately, as alvinbakal said, this whole sub-forum is dying. Siguro, the challenge is for us to revive this subforum.

    Pasensiya na kung di ako hardcore/metalcore follower. Pero siguro since nagsign-up ka sa metal forums, mas maganda kung mayroon ka ring basic knowledge and appreciation of metal. Pero meron din namang mga hardcore/metalcore fans dito, so don't worry.

    May tanong nga pala ako. 'Yung sinasabi mong store diyan, ang tinitinda ba nila ay original videos? Dito kasi, ubod din ng dami ng metal videos pero ang problema puro peke.

    Welcome again.

    I'm sorry that I am not posting here often anymore because I am too busy with my work and my computer studies. Even in Filipino metal, I seldom post too. Well, if you want to revive it, maybe create more threads and I think Filipino metalheads here would post... or maybe just invite them to filipinometal.com?
