Fantastic band and their best album yet.

A bit raw in it's execution but it's an interesting brew of folk, thrash and power metal.

Re: Helloween 2022

I didn't realise UDO had been announced as support previously, will def take HammerFall over them (him?) though. Does anyone know if this is still supposed to be a Pumpkins Reunited show? Well it's a rescheduled thing from the Pumpkins Reunited this year, so I would assume so. Ditto Hammerfall, far...

I did. For me it fell just the wrong side of cheesy power metal but perhaps I'll go back for another try.

Re: 2021 albums

I'm a bit late but I love the Iotunn album. Very grandiose, epic sounding metal with a mix of death growls and clean, almost operatic vocals. Normally I'd be put off by this amount of clean singing but I really like his voice. Draconian's last album has definitely opened my ears more to this type of...

Re: The Still drinking But in Isolation thread

First (mild) hangover since NYE today. Uffffff. My body can tolerate alcohol so much less as I go through my 30s, I only had 6 cans of beer :lol: Oh, it gets even worse with time. I'm pushing 50 now and if I stick to beer only I'm generally OK. I can just sleep it off. Start mixing it with red wine...

Re: Incineration Fest 2022

I know getting too excited will probably be my downfall but the lineup and the latest additions are looking mighty tasty. Very happy I've still got my ticket rolled over from last year. https://incinerationfest.com/2021/lineup/ I'll see you there. I'll be in my bright yellow hazmat suit. You should...

Re: Guess what date gigs will be back to normal (no social distancing)

but there's a big jump from there to thousands of people drinking and camping in a field. True but they seem to think outdoor events have a lot less impact on Covid infections. They're talking about sporting audiences returning so I don't see why small local festivals with limited numbers at least ...

Re: 2021 albums

Loving the Paranorm album.

It's been labelled progressive-thrash or progressive-death but it just sounds like a banging thrash-metal album to me. Lots of cool melodic riffs and lots of awesome guitar solos! :rock:

Re: Guess what date gigs will be back to normal (no social distancing)

The latest government announcement finally gave me some hope that outdoor events in some shape or form might happen during the summer.

Light. Tunnels. Optimism. :yes:

Re: What blew your mind today

I switched from Spotify to TIDAL this morning and the audio difference is amazing! Even their basic TIDAL PREMIUM subscription is noticeably better than the highest quality Spotify streams but I found a 6 month free trial for TIDAL HiFi which offers lossless. That's interesting!
