  1. For me at the moment, Greece has the single best metal scene. Rotting Christ and Septicflesh are probably my two favourite bands at the moment and absolutely at the top of their game, then when you throw in Varathron's latest there's a lot to like about the place. Trees of Eternity - 'Hour of the Nightingale' Let's not forget the night Ocean of Grief. Amazing Greek Death/Doom. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. I want to see him turn up at his first metal show in the King Diamond costume. Hopefully it's an In Flames show or something like that. If it's at an In Flames show no one will know he is supposed to be King Diamond, that's for sure. Not hipster enough for that crowd....
  6. Tb do you know when the release date is for medusa Around November apparently.

  8. Here's a pic from Requiem's last house party. Perhaps some inspiration in there for you C_Rams?
  9. I think Classic Rock went bust recently right? May have been bought out by someone.... but a heap of staff lost their jobs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Tuneful record, but so and so production... I think they sounded best on "You Can't Stop Rock and Roll", but the songwriting prowess and diversity exhibited on "Stay Hungry" is unmatched (by them or any other band). Choke-full of hits! The follow up, "Come Out and Play", is actually a great record too, save for the two meaningless singles... I mean, I do fancy the cover of "The Leader of the Pack" and I don't mind their collaboration with Alice Cooper on "Be Chrool to your Scuel", but come on, they're the least metal tracks on that record! Even "I Believe in You" and "King of the Fools", the ballads of the record, had more metal credibility than those! Besides, their school based video gimmick had run its course and the zombie thing had been done (to death, pun intended) by Michael Jackson on his "Thriller" video! That was a 13 fucking minutes long video, who would want any more zombies after that? With the benefit of hindsight, Twisted Sister really killed their own career with bad marketing moves... Speaking of Twisted Sister made me think of the glamorous heavy metal polarization of the United States and how New York and Los Angeles, while being so dramatically different, were the two cities responsible for the whole movement. It's like New York started it all with the New York Dolls and KISS and even Twisted Sister (who started out in 1973 but simply didn't release an LP until the early 80's) and then Los Angeles embraced it and replicated it countless times adding many different colors and flairs in the process. New York might have had the intuition, but Los Angeles became the epicenter of the epidemic disease. Dee Snider's book(Shut Up and Give Mike) is extremely informative explaining the dilemma the band faced once signing with Atlantic Records and moving to a less-authentic sound purely for commercial success in the US. He's very honest about it - essentially admitting they sold their souls for success. And the ideas behind the follow-up Come Out and Play was to expand their appeal and try 2 typical Metal songs, a couple of ballads, a couple of commercial tracks (the two singles) etc. dee admits they kinda got 'too clever' by half and ended up with a mess of an album. Then,they pretty much split up. Love Is For Suckers was supposed to be a Dee solo album but they were 'persuaded' to make it a TS album.....
