  1. The Kinks had a top 10 song in 1985?
  2. The main plot is what if people who were idiots became vampires
  3. This is the one that I have https://www.ebay.com/itm/386589235332
  4. Sacrament is my favorite. You should definitely check out As The Palaces Burn and Ashes Of The Wake. I wasn't a fan of full time growling vocals until I started listening to them. Randy Blythe taught me to appreciate that style. It's like he has a sense of melody with his growl.
  5. Do you have the Black Sabbath box set called The Black Box? It has remasters of all the albums with Ozzy. It's a very cool set.
  6. Did you ever give Spiritbox's new EP a listen? What about the new Within Temptation?
  7. You know Grammys aren't won based on talent alone and how good something is, right? It's more about who pays the most for their artist and sucks up to the right people. As for Taylor Swift, since Speak Now "converted" EP, I decided to give the album a listen and found it an enjoyable listen. I don't think she will become a favorite of mine and make my regular rotation but if her other stuff is like this then I completely get why everyone is so nuts about her. Now back to my regularly scheduled metal.
  8. So, you've never heard another guitar player mention anything like that before? I wonder if it's something unique that she does. Did you watch the ones with Ale and Pau yet?
  9. Did you ever feel like you listened to far too many new releases this year? I'm all for discovering new music, but a list like this doesn't allow time to listen to the albums and really get to know them.
  10. Vote for Pau here for Drumero rock drummer of the year https://www.drumeo.com/beat/drumeo-awards-2023/
  11. I just think the whole bonus track thing has overstayed it's welcome by many years. When every album has bonus tracks what is special about having them?
  12. Most of the streaming is older music because it's been around for decades and has had many years for people to become familiar with it and like the music. That doesn't mean new music is out of ideas. Bands today don't have radio and MTV to rely on to become huge like bands years ago did. A lot of bands today have to grow organically through consistently releasing good music and touring a lot. It takes bands longer these days for people to become familiar with them. Especially in rock and metal. So of course older, more familiar music is going to get more listeners. But there is still newer music that get really good numbers on the streaming services. But due to times being different people actually may have to put a little bit of effort into finding the new music that is out instead of always falling back on the old reliable stuff.
  13. At some point there's suppose to be a re-release of the Martin era albums. I read about it earlier this year. The Eternal Idol is the only one I think that has been available for a while. The rest of the albums with him are tough to find and aren't even on Spotify because the label they were on went out of business. So, there hasn't been any distribution of those albums since the late 90s. Maybe they're up on YouTube.
  14. Dehumanizer is their best album with Dio. TYR is from the underrated Tony Martin era. Check out The Eternal Idol, Headless Cross, Cross Purposes(my favorite with Martin) and Forbidden if you want to hear more from his time with the band. Technically these are all Tony Iommi solo albums since he's the only connection to the old Sabbath on these albums except for Cross Purposes which Geezer Butler played bass on. Still, lots of good stuff. Iommi never ran out of awesome riffs. 13 was the reunion album with Ozzy and the bands final release. Have you listened to The Devil You Know from Heaven and Hell? This is the Mob Rules/Dehumanizer lineup of Sabbath. They couldn't use the Black Sabbath name anymore because of c*** Sharon Osbourne, so they went by Heaven and Hell and only played Dio era songs live. It's a very good album. The death of Dio put an end to it and that's why they got back with Ozzy.
  15. Eddie Murphy is 62. If Axel is supposed to be the same age then it's possible he could still be in law enforcement in some way.
  16. Ok, you're just making up band/song names at this point, right? 😄
  17. He was fantastic in Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I've seen him in other stuff over the years but that will always be the show I associate him with. Great actor. RIP 🌹
  18. Have you heard Spiritbox's new EP, The Fear Of Fear?. It's really good. It tells a story of some kind. I don't really know because I rarely have a clue what most of Courtney LaPlante's lyrics are about even though I love her writing style. The new Within Temptation I think is great. I would only put The Heart Of Everything and Silent Force above it. As for Disturbed, I just got an urge to listen to them again. Not sure what brought it on. Maybe it's just because I haven't listened to them too much in the last few years. They were one of my favorite bands in the 2000s but I just feel off from listening to them for a while. Their first five albums still hold up well. I didn't like the two albums after that. Kind of felt to me like they were just mailing it in. Their newest album is good though. Kind of got a little bit of that aggressiveness back on a number of the songs.
