Last year I discovered Kamelot through the excellent 'Haven' album and have subsequently procured a lot of their back catalogue. I have also recently discovered Avantasia.

It is great album and here is a link to Kieran Dargan's recview of the album on Roktopia that originally featured in Fireworks last year. I also did an interview with the band that gives a bit more background detail. Stala & SO Album Review I personally thought that ‘You Don't Mind’ was one of the stand-out AOR songs of 2015.

I have been fortunate to see them three times, all with DC Cooper fronting the band and they were fantastic each time. On the first occasion, at Firefest, the band were accompanied by two female backing singers that were sadly missing the next show I saw them at in Sheffield; the majority of the backing vocals coming from backing tapes triggered by bassist Per Schelander who was filling in for An

It was not until I heard 'I Don't Believe In Love', on the way home from Monsters of Rock, in the late eighties, that the Queensryche sound suddenly clicked with me. I saw them support Maiden and was not initially impressed, the same with 'Rage For Order' which I detested at the time; I now consider it a classic. I for one loved 'Promised Land' from release and remember seeing them at The Royal A

I have to agree with the most of the replies to MSL’s original post. I too saw Joseph Williams, front Toto in Manchester, last year and he was simply sensational. If he is struggling then I think that 99% of rock singers should be considering retirement. In my humble opinion the only singer that even comes close to Williams in the live arena is FM’s Steve Overland.

Thanks for posting. 'Someday' was the highlight for me of a sensational gig. FM are like a fine wine, they just keep on getting better with time. Romeo's Daughter were also brilliant. It was if both bands had let me personally pick their set-lists.

I actually bought this album direct from Jace himself and subsequently reviewed it for Fireworks (Issue #69):- Singer-songwriter Jace Pawlak may not be a name that is instantly familiar to most, however, fans of bands like Tango Down (‘Too Many Roads’, ‘Back To Life’, ‘Corners Of My Mind’, ‘Alone’), Goodbye Thrill (‘Let Me Sleep’) and Far Cry (‘Fine Line’, ‘Have It A

Great review although I am with those who thought Dan Reed Network were the band of the weekend. Also really enjoyed Royal Hunt though they could have done with turning down the volume a fraction. Although I really enjoyed Gotthard I would say that they played too many songs from the latest album Bang! (over a third of the set).

I would seek out a stand and try to keep your Zeppelin. I have had one for several years and use it with an i-Pod Classic and the sound is phenomenal.

'Back In Black' is an absolute classic and with all classics stands the test of time. 'FTATRWSY' Is very patchy but the title track ranks as one of the greatest live closing songs of all-time. Agree with MSL regards 'Powerage' which is my own personal favourite AC/DC album, just ahead of 'Back In Black'.

Love all the aforementioned tracks but I would personally go for 'War Machine' as the standout track of a vey solid album. As with the debut, it is a real grower and improves with every listen - up to four so far.
