    Rush is playing 10 minutes from my house this October. My first show in Bridgeport since Judas Priest and Anthrax back in 2005.

    In more hilarious news, Iced Earth is apparently opening up for Hellyeah and Volbeat on their next tour.

    So I was going through the used albums in the local record store today and found this on CD.

    Ka-ching.

    I don't know if it's a recent thing, or if I'm just tragically unhip, but apparently people can upload full shows on youtube now. I found a Bolt Thrower show from 1989.

    I think it's pretty neat, actually, that is until rights holders start having them removed (if they're from official releases).

    I found a whole ton of bootleg recordings some guy uploaded from a Vinnie Vincent Invasion show in '89 or something. Garbage quality but kinda cool to see them in a live setting.

    Bolt Thrower are playing a festival in Holland in August where the tickets cost €6.66. I really wish I didn't already have plans, since going to that would have only cost about €20 more than I paid to go see them in the city I live in!

    Looking forward to the rest of your Priest discography, Auto. Didn't realize you were starting that so soon.

    Thanks. I'll dive into it a lot more deeply next week.

    Local record store got the new 'Dopesmoker' reissue something like two weeks early, so now I have it. Joy!

    How does it compare to the original? Is it significantly different?

  • GimGim Long Live Biscuits Registered User regular
    You'll have to give me an hour or so to let you know. I never heard Jerusalem, but the 2003 release had the second track as a live version of "Sonic Titan", whereas this one has a live version of "Holy Mountain" from '94. The album art is different. Not sure I like it as much as the 2003 artwork, but it looks more...appropriate?...than that one did.

    speaking of priest, I am hells of in the mood for a good new heavy metal record in the vein of Anvil or Enforcer. In fact Enforcer is due this year or next right?

    New Katana (Swe) should be coming out in less than a month.

    Yeah, the new Katana is a little better than the last. Not great though.

    Also, I sorta dug this:

    Okay, so I'm on a huge doom kick right now, and just discovered Bongripper.

    However, I prefer my doom to have lyrics as well. Any suggestions?

    They're more along the stoner end of the doom spectrum (As opposed to the classic doom like Katatonia, MDB or Anathema). You'll probably want to check out Sleep, Weedeater, Om, Bongzilla and maybe Earth or Saint Vitus.

    Here's a local band that might be of interest too.

    Thought this was a pretty good set (gotta fast forward like 45 minutes to get to the actual gig though). James sounded a lot better here than some vids I've seen. Occasionally he still goes a little clean on lines that were originally more aggressive sounding, but it's decent.



    They've got 'em for the other three 'Big Four' bands too, just look over in the related videos.

    Amazing how many full gigs they've got up now. Do you think they'll face some legalities over it? I'm especially fond of going through the old Dynamo sets and other stuff from Europe in the early 80s.

    Embrace of the Narrow House before Shadows Over Atlantis? :)

    On the doom end, the new Furze is out. I'm missing the vocals for sure, but I guess it might have a wider appeal this way. Also, a new Grendel? I wonder if the samples are still awful.

    Huh, the new Cattle Decap skips back over their "progressive" material to their shitty grindcore beginnings. I enjoy it more than the last album but it's not exactly impressive. I wonder who they're playing for anymore.

    "The Ecstasy of Gold" is still the best way to open a show, I think. Maiden opened up their show last time I saw them with Holst's "Mars, Bringer of War" and it was pretty cool. But "EoG" is just so emotional and powerful. Especially when it drops into something like "Creeping Death".

    I didn't care for the new Furze as much as the last. Have yet to listen to the new Grendel, assuming we mean the EBM/industrial one.

    Yeah I thought he was going to do more with the instrumental focus. Oh well. And yes, the good one. I haven't listened to any EBM in a while, feels pretty great. A few of the songs are meh but I'm happy with it.

    After playing guitar for 10 years now, I've decided to teach myself the drums in order to get my project really off the ground since drummers are in short supply around here and they call seem to be into deathcore or brutal/slam death.

    I know Auto didn't think highly of the album, but the drum tracking for this album still blows me away.

    @Morgenstern: There's a new Wodensthrone album out, as of yesterday.


    Been listening to the new Paradise Lost a bit, it's once more a blend of their earlier death/doom period with the more 90s Gothic rock stuff. This is not the best song on it, but it's still got some cool parts:



    Also, THIS comes out today, and it's fun if you guys have any loose change around and dig the black/thrash/speed:

    There are some cool songs on the new Paradise Lost, but overall I'm not terribly impressed. Maybe it will grow on me with repeated listens.

    It's far from their best.

    So, didn't take me all that long to figure out the new blogger. Not sure how I feel over the changes, but at least it's smooth and clean. Just when you've done something so many times in repetition, it comes as a shock.

    Also, new Moonspell double album. Quite a lot of releases lately, the spring rush.

    Anyone else planning on playing Diablo 3? Been slowly working on a playlist for when I grow bored of the game's music, here's how it looks so far.

    Helstar - The King Is Dead
    Running Wild - Black Demon
    X-Wild - Murder in Thy Name
    X-Wild - Die Like A Man
    Celtic Frost - Circle of the Tyrants
    Cirith Ungol - One Foot In Hell
    Rebellion - Ulfberth
    Root - Belial
    Lonewolf - Warrior Priest
    Immortal - Mount North
    Amorphis - Warriors Trail
    Destruction - Mad Butcher
    Slayer - Die By The Sword
    Bathory - Blood and Iron
    Bal-Sagoth - Naked Steel (The Warrior's Saga)
    Mercyful Fate - Welcome Princes Of Hell
    Darkthrone - Black Mountain Totem
    Grave Digger - Play Your Game (And Kill)
    Anata - Vast Lands / Infernal Gates

    Songs about battle, demons, spirits, swords, hell, or just some things evocative of Diablo's environments, I think you get the picture! Suggestions? Looking for no more than 2 songs per band.

    (PS: Please don't say Amon Amarth or Manowar)

    On the topic of full sets popping up here and there on Youtube, found this gem tonight. Watching/listening now.



    I also picked up Worship Music on a whim and I think I'm happy enough with "Devil You Know" and "Fight 'Em Till You Can't", the rest is just gravy.

    edit: Da fuck?



    I know Lita wrote some catchy pop-metal tunes but this is fucking badass.
