I hope so - the two albums released at the same time last year was basically amounted to a pissing contest - let's see who sells more albums and who the fans side with. I think the jury spoke on both counts.

It'd be nice to think so, but personally, I doubt it. The promoters seem to bring the band that had a reputation in the late-80's/early-90's - they probably think that's what will draw more crowds on this side of the Atlantic. I'd personally love to see bands like Eclipse and W.E.T. on that stage, but it's not realistic to think that the promoters would feel confident about filling an arena, ev

That's logical enough. It just screamed 'budget-conscious" to me.

About time they finally got their duffs and got back into the studio - am looking forward very much to this release! Only thing for me- they could have done a bit more with that cover art...

I've haven't looked too deeply into the posts either, but Kickstarter-type campaigns do work for certain situations, and some bands probably couldn't get new music together without them.

Purnell was indeed a big songwriter in the band, but unless something drastically changed, he's not in the picture. But I have faith that the rest of the band can put something good together in the studio - all the best to them! Saw them at M3 last year and they were great! They probably got a huge kick performing in a huge venue again, with EVERYONE singing the songs back at them.

Checked off 22 out of 100, so I'm not a total music snob after all. Main things for me was: I hosted a college radio music show for a number of years, and at several points collected every single Stryper and TNT release I could find.

I'm sure they'll turn to family to fill the rhythm guitar spot for the moment - they've done it before. I think I just heard a collective sigh of relief from AC/DC fans worldwide.

I liked the general sound they were doing in the 80's, but there was a lot of filler on their albums. I'd only listen to 2 or 3 songs from each album if I went back to them regularly. In general, I liked the early 70's a little better in terms of songwriting, and I liked the "Revenge" album a lot, too.

I've seen them live several times, and they are GREAT. Their sets are shorter than other bands, though - 90 minutes is about accurate. I did like it when they split the set into two parts during their Murder by Pride tour - the playing time went a little longer as a result, and I wish they'd do that again. And I believe that Michael Sweet's voice is amazing - it's held up over the years, and

I can only speak for myself, but I do pay attention to all the member configurations of DP, have loved the band for many years. In some ways, I've liked the Steve Morse era the best, have never quite warmed up to Ritchie Blackmore's playing for some reason. The Coverdale/Hughes band was okay, but it was a bit of hit-and-miss for me - there are only some songs that I like from those albums. Mk.

There may be an awful lot of superhero movies, but they're doing gangbusters at the box office, so they'll make them as long as people want to see them... I like CA2 okay, and am looking forward to the others coming out this summer. As a former comic-book fan, I had dreamed of seeing proper movie adaptations of the heroes, and it finally happened, so I'll enjoy it all while the trend lasts.

The album's something to look forward to, but that press release... "one of the true forefathers of the Power Metal genre" - whoa, heady title there. Can't say much about the album's storyline either.

Haven't met a lot of bands personally, but the best was meeting some of the guys from doom metal band Trouble. The drummer was extremely nice to us (even though my brother and I got tongue-tied and didn't say a whole lot), and Bruce Franklin and Rick Wartell took the time to meet fans and sign stuff even though they looked bone-tired. The two not-so greats: my brother's ex-girlfriend meet and

I see all this as a big old "whatever" - there are important things than someone throwing a 'hissy-fit,' so I'll just concentrate on enjoying the music and upcoming new MR site, thanks.

I also enjoyed looking through the past albums, might have to revisit some of them! I do have to say, the Dee Snider Broadway album was what it was, a novelty item that I'll never listen to again, but I have to say...he would make a really demented Sweeney Todd on stage.

I wish I've seen more vocalists live so that I could participate more in this thread, but Michael Sweet does sound amazing live, and Robert Mason still has a lot of power and range in his vocals. I thought Geoff Tate sounded okay when I heard him live, but after seeing the Rocklahoma clip, I guess they had jump pumped up his vocals with reverb, etc. to give it more ooomph.

I haven't read all the posts on this topic yet, but I think there are some valid points here. However, I don't necessarily that there are less "talented" bands - rather, I think the model of the major music industry labels has changed so much since the advent of downloading, etc. has resulted in an environment where those groups have much less chance of getting signed. Plus, the genre

Yes, but it was so obvious that I thought "Jake meant to do that in honor/tribute of Ozzy and Black Sabbath." I enjoyed the track for that reason, but it counted as one that I wouldn't revisit again much.

My personal take is that there are some songs that work well (probably the ones that comes closer to a more melodic, 80's-influenced style) and others that just don't click for me (some of the more modern ones that has the growl=like vocals). In purchasing the album, I'd probably go the digital route and just pick and choose about 5-6 songs and skip the rest.

I interpreted these comments as more off-the-cuff; there is NOTHING that indicates that there's any actual movement from either camp on working together.

That wasn't a confirmation of Perry doing anything with the band yet - something more substantial would need to be said to make it official (i.e. press conference or statement). And given their history, it's doubtful anything would happen.

Interesting news - I've never envisioned Eisenberg as a bald-headed villain, but he certainly knows how to play genius-type figures (The Social Network), so who knows?

I'm glad to hear that the band will have another album out - I liked Infestation, though I'll have to admit that the songs weren't as memorable as past efforts (it seems to be a problem with most 80's bands).
