IIRC, this emi rejection letter (whether real or faked / forged) was also in the giant booklet which came with the MMV box set from 2005.

I'm really digging the two recent EPs from Finnish band Moonlight Sorcery. They are basically a symphonic melodic black metal band with neoclassical guitar flourishes, so right up my alley. They are like some strange combination of Emperor and Yngwie Malmsteen, great stuff!

Listening to Delain "Dark Waters".

The replacement singer sounds a lot more like a "pop" singer.

WASP 40th Anniversary tour happening this year. For some reason, this is one band I've liked for years but have never gotten around to seeing. I'm gonna grab some tix for the Toronto show, I wish Chris Holmes was still in the band though.

I thought these guys ran out of stream on the third album "Inside The Electric Circus". Almost half of the previous album "The Last Command" was kinda on the mediocre side too.

Nevertheless, I really liked the debut album.

I agree with this, she's very poppy, and they layer her vocals a lot. It will be interesting to see how she comes off live.

Yeah, the debut is their strongest release IMO, very solid album. Agree with your comment on The Last Command, I think Electric Circus is pretty solid, and am also a big fan of The Headless Children and The Crimson Idol. I haven't followed their career too much after that though, but I'm sure they will be playing plenty of the early stuff, especially it being an anniversary tour and all.

What I found really unbearable about the "Inside the Electric Circus" album, is the really crappy production.

Though with that being said, the only songs on the album which had any replay value for me, were the three done live on "Live In The Raw": Inside The Electric Circus, I Don't Need No Doctor, and 95 Nasty. I thought the production was much better on "Live In The Raw".

Last time I saw WASP was back in '87 when they had a topless nun tied to a cross being whipped.
I doubt Blackie has the energy any more.

Blackie Lawless admitted in a few interviews that he mimes his vocals in concert. Plus they only play ten songs.

I don't mind the production, and like most of the album, their cover of "Easy Living" is pretty great.

Heh, that plus the fact that he has found religion since then.

I've been hearing stories like that recently, I'm glad I held off on buying tickets for this tour. Now I wish I had seen them years ago instead.

Dunno how I managed to completely miss this over the past six months. Alyssa singing in varied vocal styles on a Nita Strauss collaboration "The Wolf You Feed".

Yeah, that's a good one. I kinda met Alyssa back in 2016, but I didn't know who she was at the time. I went to a horror convention where the Misfits' guitarist Doyle was guesting. I got his autograph, wondered who the hot, blue-haired chick was sitting beside him and a few months later found out about her and that she was Doyle's girlfriend. Dammit, I would have gotten her autograph as well.

Dunno how I managed to miss this one either from a year ago: "Let The World Burn" by Vio-Lence.



Back in the day, I use to listen to their debut "Eternal Nightmare" album a lot when it was first released. Their subsequent albums were kinda forgettable ("Oppressing the Masses", and "Nothing To Gain"). The then-guitarist Robb Flynn later formed Machine Head.

This 5 track ep reminds me of listening to their earlier stuff, but without the singer doing a falsetto voice. Good stuff.

I was a big Vio-lence fan back in the 80's. Actually went to a wedding a few years ago with Sean and Perry (singer and drummer). But I wasn't thrilled with the new EP. It was decent. Unfortunately since that EP came out, Bobby Gustaffson (ex-Overkill) and Perry both left and now even Phil Demmel only takes part occasionally as he's doing stuff with Lamb Of God, so it's almost a tribute act at this point with only Sean left. In fact, when they played a few gigs in Australia a few months ago Sean got sick and the band actually played with a stand in singer, so it was a full tribute act.

Man, I'd love to see this show in Japan. Black metal legends Beherit have never performed outside of their native Finland, and that wasn't since the 90s.

Cattle Decapitation's new album, Terrasite, is really good (I've done two full listens so far), a fine followup to 2019's Death Atlas. Can't wait to see them live next week.

Yea really enjoying Terrasite. Seeing them as well next month when they role through Seattle, really looking forward to that whole bill.

Saw the Phobophilic, Fuming Mouth, Frozen Soul, Terror, The Black Dahlia Murder show last night. Holy hell that was an incredible show. I've enjoyed all those bands but live was another level. Fuming Mouth really blew me away, lead singer beat cancer not too long ago and man were they on fire. Terror set got crazier than I expected was a hell of alot of fun. Also my first time seeing a show at the Neptune Theater in Seattle and it might surpass Brick by Brick down in San Diego as my favorite venue. The venue itself was beautiful, sound was top notch, and the staff were friendly as hell (and they were put through the ringer with Terror on stage).

Heh.

The Cavalera brothers re-recording the first two Sepultura releases.


- Bestial Devastation



- Morbid Visions




It sounds like another case of the original "rawness" being completely stripped away, and being replaced with technical studio perfection. It sounds almost "lifeless".

Yeah, I really hate this re-recording our old albums shit.

It just ain't the same.

Even with something like Twisted Sister's "Still Hungry," where the original sounds terrible on CD, the new recordings just don't have the same vibe. They sound more like covers or demos.
