It's this time of the month again. Even though I'm a male.

Iced Earth, Blind Guardian, and Demons & Wizards are 3 of my favorite bands ever. Demons & Wizards is also my favorite super group. Doesn't get any better.

 

Then again...this is new singer stuff, IIRC, which isn't quite as good.

I really don't listen to em much. I have always wished them the best, but the last couple years? I love the double live album"Live In Athens"....1999.. I used to play it all the time. I have very little room now for listening to what I call standard metal. These guys always had great guitar. Remember when Ripper was the singer for Judas Priest. Those were strange times! Still though Priest toured and made money. I actually have a DVD with Ripper singing vocals for Priest and it's like a cover band....lol

 

Now they have lost a guitar player. Still though they really sound like Priest with Rob singing again.

 

 

 

  • Rob Halford - vocals
  • Glenn Tipton - guitar
  • Richie Faulkner - guitar
  • Ian Hill - bass
  • Scott Travis - drums

 

It will be interesting to hear the album when it comes out later this year, minus one KK. Downing!

They were solidly Power Metal in their hay day, IMO.

Speaking of old-school, looks like this is coming out in every format except VHS and cassette.

Did you just find a good sounding picture disc? :)

There's no black vinyl version to compare so I can't really say. The vinyl does sound better than the CD, but it definitely isn't the absolute knock-out that South Of Heaven on vinyl is, which makes that ultra high price pretty tough to justify. The original CD master was pretty well done.

I love discovering metal I wouldn't otherwise listen to.

 

Has Demons and Wizards put anything out since Touched by the Crimson King?

 

I'm not a HUGH PM fan, but I think that's a beautiful melodic metal album...love the acoustic sounds, etc. Really tasteful. I had just read Stephen King's Gunslinger books, and I thought the album was awesome since I was in full on geek SKing mode. Loved those books!

 

+1 on older Blind Guardian...., but after the bloated Night at the Opera-they sort of lost me. I think they were channeling Queen or something. But, even if you hate PM, Imagination from the Other side Side and Nightfall in Middle are earth are   #@!ing brilliant. Then, they seemed to get drunk on prog and forget their thrashy power roots-at least that's my take.

Demons & Wizards only did those 2 albums, unfortunately. They're both sick though. The LP cut if Crimson King is a picture disc I actually listen to as well.

 

Power Metal was and probably always will be my favorite sub genre of Metal. Hammerfall, Rhapsody of Fire, Pyramaze...You know...Dragons and demons and ****. 

 

That crowd chanting, epic scale music is just great. Hammerfall's Crimson Thunder is an excellent example. That driving drum kick in the last chorus blows my mind every time.

That album has great sound quality!

Them being my favorite Power Metal band ever...it makes me feel ashamed that I don't have ANY of their vinyl (it's really hard to come by for the most part).

The differences are pretty huge, but all of their albums sound good.

 

EDIT: Most of these are picture discs, by the way.

I would love to have another great Priest album. But, I'm thinking those days are gone. I don't listen to that much traditional Metal, either. I can't think of much out now that would even qualify as such. You can only listen to Number of the Beast, Ace of Spades or Screaming for Vengeance so many times before you start seeing cross eyed.

 

Would be great, though to have another album like Painkiller!

I think they still make great records. Priest has come out with some great live DVDs too not long ago. The new album will most likely have great sound. Even though many scoffed at the last Judas Preist release it was recorded well. Even when British Steel came out it was audiophile metal!
