Check out a new cd from a band called from Black Fate who have just released the album 'Between Visions and Lies' if you have a soft spot for Kamelot and Roy Khan as a vocalist. Absolutely excellent cd from with great songs and absolutely awesome vocals. Sorry - posting this in a hurry so no time to pop in links but I know You Tube has 'Lines in the Sand' and 'Weight of the World' on there. Ja

Excellent album. Hadn't come across them until I saw the review for this cd in Powerplay mag - think it was Album of the Month actually. Singer is much more 'rock' than classical/operatic and the songs are awesome. Well worth checking out for anyone into the slightly heavier side if Mel Rock. Jay

Yep, Sherlock Brothers supported in London with a female fronted 'Blondie' style band first on the bill. Don't know who they were though. Incidentally, the Sherlock Brothers are well worth checking out. And H.E.A.T. were sensationally good in London on Wednesday night. Eric is such a superb singer and frontman - immense. Jay

Daniel also sings in a modern rock band called Lavett. Check out this excellent song off their debut from last year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89zewtP87UE Jay

Superb cd from start to finish. Daniel Heiman is an immense singer (loved the Heed album from a few years ago in particular) and he excels on this. A great mix of very melodic power metal and rock. For those into the more melodic style there is much here to enjoy. Check out 'In Search Of', 'What If' and 'You Are' in particular. Absolute quality and one of my favourites of the year. Jay

I'm definitely in the live DVDs/BR camp. Particularly when the band is great visually and that adds so much to the live experience. For instance, I couldn't have listened to a live Skid Row cd but the live video footage was immense. The new H.E.A.T. Live release also feels like a missed opportunity - the live performance is so good it would add a load to the cd only release. Have to agre

And for anyone going, they are supporting H.E.A.T. on their upcoming European tour this November and December. Jay

Was going to mention J R Richards too. Has to be one of the best vocalists ever IMO. Utter class. Jay

Great to get all the opinions and it seems we all have a lot in common! However, I still stand by the fact that if I had listened to minute long samples, once or twice, of many albums I have grown to love over the years, I would have never bought them in the first place. And I would have missed out on some incredible music that has given me a huge amount of pleasure. One of my all time fa

Hey Carl - I get that but I think it's also true that in the age of 30 sec samples we judge very quickly the strength of the songs on a cd rather than living with it over a period if time. There is so much music vying for our attention it's no wonder we don't persevere with those that don't thrill us right from the start. I know that more and more I'm returning to albums that I didn't real

Just an observation. Seems to me (myself included) that when a new cd is released we expect every song to be amazing and if we don't love the songs on the first couple of listens it gets dismissed as not great. I look back on all my favourite albums from the past and wonder how they would cope with modern day samples/instant love. Even now those cd's have a few stand out tracks, some which are

Hey, ShawBlades, I was with you but give it a few listens. It really does take a bit of perseverance but it's absolutely worth it. Jay

I was disappointed after the first couple of listens but it's grown on me massively to the point where I like it more than What The Hell. Definately takes some time to get under your skin, much more than the previous two. Still think the debut had a few songs that were better but I think this is the most consistently good cd so far.

Have to say I was concerned about this, particularly after the latest Avalon which was poor, but I think it's excellent. In my view the first three A/L albums went superb, good, average and this is up there with the first one. To agree with others re Jorn, both Hourglass and Aeronautics are sensational albums. Absolute class. Jay

Another great album. One of the most consistent bands around.....but I wish they did that something to take it from another great, solid album to fucking amazing! I just feel they have it within them to release the chains and deliver an all time classic. Jay

Oh, and yeah, this track is a little similar to EOT to say the least. I do hope this is good though as I was a big fan of the first AJ release, the next two were decent but it did feel like it needed freshening up. Now, Timo has written some AMAZING stuff over the years but he has been massively hit and miss over the past decade. Hope this is a hit for all concerned. Jay

Loved those Savatage cd's but Hall of the Mountain King is still their pinnacle for me. Just adored that album at the time. Jay

Maybe this is why that is the song I like then!! Having said that, I agree with you 100% on both In The Raw (terrible song) and Livin It Up. Weird huh!? Jay

I understand this has been out for a while, but as someone who doesn't really listen to mainstream radio it kind of passed me by. However, I'm loving this and I'm guessing (hoping) a few others get it too. Love the way the song builds, the piano and melodies are awesome. Just not really a Mel rock voice. Anyone else like (not)!

....was hyping as the best thing he'd worked on, saviour of rock etc? I know he's not posting here and I must have missed any announcement (assuming there was one). I think Mutt Lange was involved but I could be wrong. If it has come out, any opinions? Worth the hype? Thanks all. Jay
