Oh very likely...But maybe this album will restore them to a steadier level!

You got into them before they released The Astonishing. You really couldn't have picked a worse time to discover them. I've been a huge fan since Images and Words and The Astonishing killed about 90 percent of my enthusiasm for the band. That's how bad that whole endeavor was for me.

Oh gosh I think this is what happened to me, very early in my DT experience. Maybe if I do decide to do a marathon in future, we could make it a small group conversation and revisit them together! Me, you, EP and Mick!

If I can find the time I’d be down. So much I haven’t heard from them (looking at you Scenes).

I think Priest, Sabbath and Queen are more enticing to be honest. (I may mix the marathons up and do each band chronologically but with well thought out breaks in between. Like Rush, do the marathons in batches and swap between bands to keep it fresh).

Plenty of Priest and Sabbath I haven’t heard either. Vol. 4, Technical Ecstasy, Never Say Die, Point Of Entry, Defenders Of The Faith, Turbo, Painkiller...

They had ONE dud after two highly acclaimed releases (for me, three).

I am open to a new release. As I said already, the snippet is better than anything I remember off the astonishing (maybe it is time to try that one again...).

I'm not a massive DT fan but I will always be open to new releases.

I'm fully ready for my enthusiasm to be renewed. If they can have something like Dramatic Turn or the self titled I'll be very happy. I don't think the band lost it they just made a huge misstep on the last album and tour to support it.

other than those hilarious attempts at sounding like opeth, I didn't think black clouds was that bad.

Mekong Delta are better.

I joined a recent thrash metal group on Facebook to discover more bands. So far so good!
