  1. Fantastic movie but so many questions left unanswered. I think episodes 8 and 9 will be a lot more crucial in bringing in new ideas and defining what story exactly the new trilogy is trying to tell.
  2. Awesome album. My favorite track is Chlorine and Wine. Overall I think it's their best effort yet.
  3. Here's my top 10: 10. Periphery - Juggernaut 9. Tremonti - Cauterize 8. Ghost - Meliora 7. Symphony X - Underworld 6. Tesseract - Polaris 5. Iron Maiden - Book of Souls 4. Soilwork - The Ride Majestic 3. Nightwish - Endless Forms Most Beautiful 2. Steven Wilson - Hand Cannot Erase 1. Amorphis - Under the Red Cloud Honorable mentions: Riverside - Love, Fear and the Time Machine Enslaved - In Times Baroness - Purple Kamelot - Haven Blind Guardian - Beyond the Red Mirror Honestly, I'm pretty stunned that Amorphis made it to #1 as I haven't been a huge fan of theirs in the past but this album is just so damn good. Highly recommend listening to it if you haven't heard it.
  4. Horrible news. He was a true legend. RIP
  5. Update: 1. The Sword - High Country: Eh, besides a few tracks this one didn't really do much for me. Stoner rock is great and all but other bands have done it better. I really think they should have stuck to their roots. 2. Iron Maiden - Book of Souls: Another solid album from one of the world's best metal bands. Death or Glory, Empire of the Clouds and The Red and The Black are my standouts. 3. Riverside - Love, Fear and the Time Machine: A very welcome, brilliantly executed change in style. Lots of hints of Steven Wilson, Opeth, Pink Floyd etc. on this one. Definitely one of the most beautiful albums of the year. 4. Soilwork - The Ride Majestic: It was a pretty hard feat to live up to the fantastic The Living Infinite but they definitely pulled it off here. Each song is really catchy and has a unique identity. An addictive album for sure. 5. Motorhead - Bad Magic: I dunno, it's solid enough but their style is so simplistic that it all the songs just start blending into each other after a while. Might give it another listen soon. 6. Amorphis - Under the Red Cloud: Wow! This might be my favorite of theirs! The melodies, the growls, the choruses, the lyrics...it's all pretty much perfect. Another strong contender for my top 10 of 2015 list.
  6. Really strong Pink Floyd influence in that track. Looking forward to this!
  7. So their new album Under the Red Cloud is coming out very soon. They've released two excellent songs from it so far. Can't wait to hear the whole thing! Death of a King: Sacrifice:
  8. Heard this album a little while ago and it didn't quite hit the spot for me. Some good songs on it for sure but I enjoyed their last one much more.
  9. Time to necro this thread. 1. Nightwish - Endless Forms Most Beautiful: Just a phenomenal album. Didn't think much of it at first but after a while I've grown to like it more than Imaginaerum. And I absolutely love the concept behind it. 2. Tremonti - Cauterize: Meat and potatoes hard rock/heavy metal. This has been my go-to album when I want something simple, catchy and heavy. 3. Symphony X - Underworld: This marks the first time they've incorporated old school elements since The Odyssey and I think it turned out really well. Every song is just killer! 4. Ghost - Meliora: Yeah, this is gonna make my 2015 top 10 for sure. I felt that Opus wasn't quite catchy enough while Infestissumam wasn't quite heavy enough. On Meliora they perfected the balance and delivered some of the catchiest, most memorable metal songs I've heard. I think it could have used one more song but otherwise it's definitely their best album. 5. Kamelot - Haven: Can't say I like it as much as Silverthorn (my favorite of theirs) but it's still fantastic and retains their trademark sound. 6. Paradise Lost - The Plague Within: Never been a huge fan of this band but this album definitely sticks out, especially after Nick's superb performance on the latest Bloodbath record. It's heavy as hell, dark and melodic all at the same time. 7. Tame Impala - Currents: It was pretty unexpected to see this band change their sound so drastically, but I'm a huge fan of 80's pop so I really dig the direction on this album. This and the new Chvrches record will probably tie for my pop album of the year. 8. Riverside - Love, Fear and the Time Machine: So this band definitely isn't metal anymore but that's not at all a bad thing. This is by far their softest and most beautiful album. Lots of influences from great artists such as Steven Wilson, Pink Floyd, Opeth etc. There's even one track that could fit on a Cure album. I really liked the last album but I haven't found myself going back to it nearly as much as I have with this one. 9. Chelsea Wolfe - The Abyss: This is her darkest and most pained album, which is saying a lot. I'm glad she toned down the vocal effects, but on the whole I'm not connecting with it quite as well as I did with Pain is Beauty. Still, there are some really beautiful, haunting tracks like Iron Moon and Carrion Flowers. 10. God is an Astronaut - Helios/Erebus: So many bands have done the whole post-rock thing but few others nail quite like GIAA do. Some truly mesmerizing, intense stuff on this album. And it's a huge plus that's it's so diverse. This is really what post-rock should sound like. Looking forward to: Iron Maiden - Book of Souls Amorphis - Under the Red Cloud Soilwork - The Ride Majestic Motorhead - Bad Magic Ahab - Boats of the Glen Carrig Stratovarius - Eternal Tesseract - Polaris Scale the Summit - V Deafheaven - New Bermuda Chvrches - Every Open Eye Clutch - Psychic Warfare David Gilmour - Rattle That Lock Graveyard - Innocence and Decadence Intronaut - The Direction of Last Things Deftones - TBA Saxon - Battering Ram Avatarium - The Girl With the Raven Mask Panopticon - Autumn Eternal Draconian - Sovran Trivium - Silence in the Snow
  10. So I'm pretty much addicted to this album. Definitely my favorite of theirs and one of the best of the year so far. Streaming here for those who haven't heard it yet:
