WASP - Blackie Lawless

Yeh I have all early 1980s works and some of the later stuff, this guy is a rock n roll machine............Cimson Idol is like a rock opera or "tommy" by Blackie, got tired of just cranking out another normal album.
Even without knowing any of the theme connections the album sounds good just listening to it as individual songs

I must have at least 7-8 albums by WASP, 1990s albums really cheap used

Yeah I agree. Even if you don't follow the story of TCI, just experiencing the songs for what they are is enjoyable.

BTW, does "I Am One" really play out like a live track?

Anyway, right now:

I really enjoyed "Red Album" and was glad to see that even on their first EP's these guys already had a nice crushing sound, albeit in a more raw kind of way. I still prefer the more mature and refined sound of "Red Album", but I'm enjoying these two EP's still.

Baroness - First/Second (2003/2005, Sludge Metal)



And I can't wait for their "Blue Album" to come out this year! I have high expectations for that one. Awesome cover is awesome.

With regards to Blut Aus Nord, I prefer Memoria Vetusta I - Fathers of the Icy Age. the melodies are better and stick with me more than ...Vetusta II

Oh man this is br00tal. Like torment and pure evil turned into music. Although it's great that the melody and rhythm is still recognizable through all that chaos. I should listen to this through speakers instead of through headphones when I get home...

Anaal Nathrakh - In the Constellation of the Black Widow (2009, Black Metal/Grindcore)

Finally got around to listened to Drudkh - Microcosmos in earnest today, and I love it. I hope their other albums are like this one.

Yeah you say that now All Flesh is Grass, Deadlands and Desiderata can become addictive.

Elegeion's

Enverxis, do you have any news on them at all?
Sorry mate, I have not heard from Anthony Kwan + the band for some years. I know that they have a couple of muck around side projects and what not but I have heard nothing on the Elegeion front for a long time

I still wear my shirt quite often though

Not much news on my end I'm afraid (Lol I haven't read this thread for like 4 months )

I haven't really got anything new, I'm going to start getting into some more Traditional Doom (Saint Vitus, Trouble etc etc) and I'm going to go see Opeth later this year.

Spent about a month listening to Alice in Chains - Black Gives Way to Blue and I have to say it's the best release I've heard in 2 years.

Matthew if you weren't a huge fan of their old lead vocalist the new guy melds in well with Jerry Cantrell and would probably suit you better (He was excellent live as well).

Truely fantastic album, a grower, really deep and excellent music.

Glad you like it. I will see what I can do. I am not the hugest AIC fan, but some of their songs are simply outstanding (eg. Would? and Down In A Hole).


After taking the munchkins out to look at the different houses, and as a tribute to the Halloween spirit, I am listening to some Esoteric. I am really enjoying the atmosphere of Ignotum Per Ignotius from The Maniacal Vale. Yeah, that hits the spot...

Anyone have the new album by Insomnium: Across The Dark? I like it a lot, but it is not any large departure from their last album, Above The Weeping World. Has clean vocals spread sparingly throughout, but other than that, it is the same formula. I consider this a good thing, as this band is very easy to get into and fun to listen to. Nothing really deep or involving but still a rewarding listen.

Odd trivia: Whenever it rains, I always whip out the Insomnium to play in the car. I guess it just fits the mood...

Quite enjoying Back to the Noose by Swashbuckle, as I love a bit of Pirate metal.

Anyone get the Venom Delux Edition of "Black Metal", not an album I ever expected to get this treatment.



Product Description
Digitally remastered and expanded two disc (CD + NTSC/Region 0 DVD) Deluxe Edition of the Metal band's groundbreaking 1982 album featuring 11 bonus tracks plus a bonus live DVD. Black Metal is Venom's most important release. This was the album that gained the band recognition and tilted the Heavy Metal world off its axis, inspiring countless of disciples to pick-up the gauntlet and blaze their own trail down the brightly lit pathway scorched by the grooves of this masterpiece. This edition for the new millennium serves to enhance the original with a plethora of mouth watering additions. Following the original album are 11 bonus tracks consisting of a Radio One Session, outtakes, remixes and the single, `Bloodlust'. However, the piece-de-resistance comes with a complete second DVD disc of the monumental live show, The 7th Date Of Hell, filmed at London's Hammersmith Odeon in 1984. Sanctuar

Been enjoying the new Slayer effort, World Painted Blood, today. Nice mixture of a bit of this and a bit of that from their past efforts. Maybe perhaps most reminiscent of Seasons, but also with a bit of Reign as well. Worth checking out for fans.

I've been listening to Blood Stain Child's Idolator and it sounds like In Flames mixed with Attack Attack! I love the techno and stuff mixed in with it, sounds great and if you like In Flames you will probably like it as this guy sounds almost exactly like Anders.

Whoops. Didn't notice this until today

Danny Cavanagh and Anneke Van Giesbergen will be teaming up again for a couple of special shows NEXT WEEK. The dates are:

Annie and Danny will be releasing a live album titled "In Parallel" which features live versions of classics from Anathema, Agua de Annique and The Gathering, along with cover versions such as 'teardrop' and 'the blowers daughter' - it has 15 tracks running over an hour in length, with great packaging.

This album is exclusively available at these shows so be there!
The search begins for the CD. To listen however ...

Also I checked Danny Cavanagh's Twitter and they're recording the songs for their upcoming album now
