Last two bands I have got into have actually had quite a history - hadn't really much of them before and now suddenly they are almost all I listen to! For the record, Jorn and H.E.A.T are my "new discoveries" - what acts have you discovered recently that also have quite a pedigree?

I've been a big fan since about 2000 when I saw them live for the first time (supporting Dio). IMHO the only albums I feel are not so great are the first two with Henrik Brockmann on vocals. Their debut "Land Of Broken Hearts" has some good songs but the vocals don't do it for me personally. And their follow up I don't like at all! However, after and including Moving Target which was DC

Their debut is just sublime...probably my favourite of theirs and IMHO one of the great debut albums in R 'n' R history. Great band so this is cool news!

So I've just "discovered" an artist who I really like and who has a reasonable size back catalogue going back a while. Quite a few albums are available on iTunes but not the earliest dated 2001 or so. From what I can gather, the CD is out of print so only second-hand copies would be available. This CD is on the same label as all the others on iTunes. It got me thinking: why in this d

I have the Allen/Lande albums which is really how I got introduced but it's taken years for me to check out his solo work. I checked out one of the Masterplan albums - 1st I think - and Ark, again ages ago but

I had seen many comments on the board about "too much plod" on latter albums and I understand what they mean, but to me for the most part they just come across as very powerful. Not every song is my fave but there are some stunning examples of slower tempo but brilliantly executed songs. We Brought The Angels Down, Spirit Black and End of Time spring to mind. I love the rerecorded versi

When they played NZ with Heart they had Shotgun Alley open for them. That was a great concert.

A few weeks ago I asked for some recommendations for Jorn albums and most folk seemed to think The Duke was a good place to start. Wow. Thanks all! I love it! So many great songs and a very powerful yet melodic album with the crunchiest guitar sound I've heard in a long time. So on the back of that I went out and got a few more - Spirit Black, Traveller, Lonely Are The Brave, Unblocking The

I think Peter hit the nail on the head - we fans would love to hear new stuff but that is not really what the general public want to hear. And it is the general public that is filling out the halls. Having said that, when they played NZ last year I would have been more than a little pi$$ed NOT to have heard the usual suspects...! That said, Carl's point is well made. With such a great back cat

...man he was a part of two of my favorite bands of all time, Rainbow and Dio and co-wrote one of my top 5 favorite songs of all time (Stand Up And Shout). Just too many legends leaving us right now. RIP Jimmy.

I'm skeptical this would happen - Tony was probably just being nice - but I'd be happy to see it happen. Thought the TM years with Sabbath were excellent. Some awesome songs written in that period.

These guys have had a lot of positive remarks on this board I was aware of when I chanced on the CD "Tearing Down The Walls" last week. Bought it and really like it! Thanks again MR.com :) Next questions then - how do their other albums stack up, and indeed the previous singer? A closing remark from me - TDTW to these ears is reminiscent of a NZ melodic HR band called Shotgun Al

Nope. Never. Still have a collection but haven't played it in yonks. Don't buy into the hype of it sounding better than a CD equivalent - still remember the impact that my very first CD made when I played it. Don't miss the pops and crackles either! Can't see how a high-end system would overcome them either - it is inevitable that vinyl will develop surface scratches over time. I cared for my rec

Can't add much more than what has already been written but Motorhead were the second band I ever saw live and that likely sealed my devotion to hard rock / classic metal for the rest of my life... a legendary band and a legend of a man and musician, no matter what you think of his music, they and he were very important and influential. RIP and let the music live on.
