Heart of Steel through Pleasure Slave are 20 minutes of pure garbage.
My version doesn't have "Pleasure Slave" but I will give you "Sting Of The Bumblebee."
I love Heavy Metal ballads so I have no problem at all with "Heart Of Steel" and I don't see what you could hate about "Kingdom Come" or "The Crown And The Ring (Lament Of The Kings)," the latter being a fucking amazing song.
I blind bought Louder Than Hell last year. What a shitty album ... a waste of $6.
Best Manowar performance. On fucking Nickelodeon. Heavy as fuck.
So where do I go for Warlord after Deliver Us? Love this one so much.
That's a no-brainer sir, definitely chase down And the Cannons of Destruction Have Begun... which is their debut full length. Absolute masterpiece in my opinion.
Unless I misunderstood your question?
These fuckers come out in costumes on stage (ie, they put on their wizard robe and hat). For all I know, they actually LARP and play D&D (which wouldn't be surprising). There are tinges of power metal here. Overall, for only hearing this band twice live and only one playthrough for this album, this is solid. This is going to get added to my 2015 best of list for the locals section.
I don't see anything there bro...
Some album called Frostburn by a band called Lords of the Trident.
Oh, yeah, I've played with Lords of the Trident. Their music is intentionally cheesy and over the top, but they have some damn good riffs and are super chill guys. I haven't heard that album yet though.
Yeah I like them because they are super cheesy. They kick ass live too.
You can still list your top Dio albums even if you like Rainbow and Sabbath better, but it's cool.
Oh i was just responding to OldWaind's post ...
My favorite Dio albums are The Last in Line and Holy Diver. I also dig Dream Evil, Master of the Moon, Sacred Heart, Killing the Dragon and Lock Up The Wolves. Dont care much for the rest of his solo stuff. He has plenty of good songs scattered throughout his bands catalgoue, but i find most of his albums to be mostly average. When i want to listen to Dio, i usually go for his Rainbow or Sabbath material ... which i think is far superior to his "solo" work.
Rainbow is just wonderful, but I'd say that his work in Sabbath is really only slightly better than some of the jams on "Holy Diver'. I agree that a lot of his discography can be looked over, but those first few solo albums are just wonderful.
Out of all the stuff I own with Dio, this is how I place them in order:
The Last In Line
Heaven And Hell
Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow
Long Live Rock'n'Roll
Carolina County Ball
Trying To Burn The Sun
I think Lock Up the Wolves is greatly underrated. He had a guitarist on that album that appears on no other albums (except some super unknown band called DC4). The guy is a diamond in the rough, excellent riffage on that album. Especially tracks 6, 7, 8, 10 but the whole CD is good. Been spinning that every day in my car for over a week now.
Heavy Chains has just released Tarot's debut on Bandcamp, and it's every bit as beautiful as I'd hoped and expected.
Yeah I posted it on the Metal 2016 thread. I just pre-ordered it so I'm going to avoid the bandcamp.
^^ Fucking hell that rules, I haven't been very enthusiastic about hardly any new bands the last couple of years but Tarot I love. I'm gonna preorder that right now!
Rising Out Of The Ashes is a great album as well and Joacim Cans is actually very good on that album. It's a far better album that The Holy Empire which is pretty shit TBH.
