Was prepared to give him the benefit of the doubt ... but this is AWFUL. Reminds me of something that would be 'sung' during a Phantom of the Opera stage play by the villain, who can't really sing so kinda talks/sings the words ... lamentable!!

Chase the Dragon On a Storyteller's Night Wings of Heaven Marauder Vigilante II ... all AWESOME!! Nothing else really does it for me. Bought 'Sleepwalking' CD 2 months ago, to see if my original opinion had changed. Nah... And since the reunion, I've been left totally cold. 'Escape From The Shadow Garden' probably the best of the bunch. Be interested to see Bob Catley's solo al

I remember being at my first Iron Maiden concert .. I was 16. In the toilet some guy asks me how old I am. I tell him .. and he replies "What are you doing here?". That REALLY annoyed me. So yeah, the younger you are to get into rock, the better (I was 12 too)

Yes, but all those manufactured boy bands, I'm sure they all LOVE the shitty music they are singing as they probably listen to that stuff themselves. Metal is something that is in your blood from a young age. Look at some of the singers from those reality shows ... Nathan James, Daughtry .. they kept their music true to their beliefs. Listen, you like them and have explained why. I detest th

I have never made ANY mention of 'exploitation of women' because sex sells, and has done since the dawn of time. If you are happy watching 15 year old Japanese school girls prancing about dressed like that, hey, that's your business. And also I have never said anything about the actual music. If people enjoy the music, again, that's their business. I guess having been IN the business for almost

No, it's true I don't like the image, but what I really hate is the fact they are not rock fans, but a corporate manufactured "band" of non-rock fans trying (and succeeding, unfortunately) to take in the hard rock community into buying into their schtick. And now they are winning hard rock awards .. that just makes me sick. But clearly there are quite a few people who get off on them, s

Seriously, what's the POINT in posting those Youtube links? So some of the backing band are rock musicians...just makes the whole front-girls schtick even more fake. And Marty Friedman thinks it's a good thing ... but his guitarist just happens to be the backing guitarist in the band? Well DUH!! Jesus .. that photo of Marty with those pathetic little Japanese girls just makes me wanna PUKE!! S

Jesus ... these f*cking idiots are NOT EVEN rock fans. THAT is the FAKE. Say what you want about KISS, current 80s line-ups or Frontiers projects ... these are ALL true rock fans/musicians. THAT is the bone I have to pick. They choose a bunch of Japanese kids not even into metal, dress them up like that and have them play Metal ... that is just soooo FAKE! I have never EVER said the music can'

The integrity I'm talking about is the band's, nothing to do with the fans. There is NO integrity in a band of non-metal fans/musicians put together to play metal by big corporation, and dressing like that to gain popularity. The whole thing stinks ...

And in a similar instance as with Abominog above, I really LOVE the debut Zeno album .. which was rated a solitary K in Kerrang. Which is another reason I hate giving scores in Fireworks ... opinions on scoring differs too much between people ...

The new Dare album is excellent, but is certainly not a 10/10 album (IMO). A BIG step back in the right direction, helped by Vinny's excellent guitars. If maybe 2 tracks had been replaced with more uptempo songs, it would have been right up there. Me personally, I'd give it a really solid 8/10. But it IS on constant play in my car, which no Dare album has been since the original mix of 'Calm Befo

If the girls were actually metal fans, and formed the group organically, then decided on the dress-up gimmick as a way to get noticed, then I would at least give them the time of day. Sadly, none of that is so. Non-metal fans, but musicians, put together by corporation to do metal songs dressed as little school girls ... the whole concept is just so sickening I can't understand how any true hard

No, sorry, there's NO WAY any female band can justify dressing up like little school-girls. Sure, it's "an image", but it's one that totally demeans any musical credibility, and one that panders to a section of society it really shouldn't. Seriously, why would any female band dress up like prepubescent school girls? It's all about making waves and using sexuality to sell music (which

If it was all about the music, WHY the need to dress like pre-pubescent Japanese school-girls?? Sure, it's a gimmick, but one that leaves a bit of a bad taste in the mouth. Although my MAIN issue is that NONE of the band were metal music fans before being put together in this manufactured group. Enjoy them all you want, but for me, I'd rather have musical integrity than this manufactured bullsh

Listened to 'Jupiter's Darling' once ... and that was once too much!! I appreciate they want to do what THEY want to do. I also appreciate that I regard their current music as boring boring shit. (Although I think the same of most Led Zeppelin stuff, so I guess that would figure).

I don't have an issue with people liking them (for all their manufactured bullshit). But best live Metal band of 2016?? Do me a FUCKING favour!!!! Just underlines the contempt I have for a magazine I once loved (and YES, I KNOW it's now aimed at 16 year olds ... or 60 year old paedos with Japanese school-girl fetishisms ...)

>> It was an international showdown for Best Live Band, with Japanese metal idol sensations BABYMETAL triumphing. The pint-sized rockers have become a phenomenon in a staggeringly short amount of time. The three teenagers recently sold out Wembley Arena, secured themselves a main-stage slot at this year’s Download Festival and were the stars of a BBC documentary. The band snatched the awa

The problem about sending to USA is that it costs £5.50 just to post a CD, which is $8!! So combined CD and shipping to USA is over $26!! Which is crazy, especially as CD prices in USA are much cheaper than in Europe in first place.

I think the reason for that is some people are stupid :) I know both 'No Easy Way Out' and 'Burning Heart' were on the Rocky IV soundtrack. If you Google 'No Easy Way Out lyrics' almost half the sites list the song as by Survivor!! So I think the general misconception is just via the Rocky movies ..which are tied into Survivor in many people's minds

The album does rock, but more in an 'Out of the Silence' way than 'Blood From Stone'. If you enjoyed tracks like 'King Of Spades' etc you'll love this album. Vinny being back is just the superb icing on the cake ...
