Ah, ok - don't know him. Also, I think the band is actually called Through Fire as just been seeing what's available on Amazon and it's currently out of stock. Jay

Damage was a fantastic cd so looking forward to this. Is the new singer Toryn Green who handled vocals on the 2nd Emphatic cd - I think it was called Another Life? He was the singer on Fuel's Angels and Devils cd which was also excellent. Could never get a copy of that 2nd Emphatic cd as crazy expensive and not on itunes so no idea how good it was. Interested to see if any of the tunes fro

I am soooo looking forward to this. My most anticipated release of the year. Both songs I've heard so far are excellent. Have you heard the whole cd Mike? Such a quality band. Jay

Had a great day in the mud (sewage!) on Sunday with Delain, Halestorm, Shindown, Nightwish and Maiden all doing the business. Beer, rain, great people and some top music - what more do you want? Jay

Love it. But love the band and everything they have done since Collide. Yes, it uses auto-tuning as an effect but they've done that (particularly on Jen's vocals) for ages. All part of the sound - and there aren't that many bands who have a 'sound' anymore. Uplifting, fun, rocking, commercial hard rock. Not going to change the world but a great tune. Looking forward to the cd come Augus

After 3 listens today I have it up there with This is Gonna Hurt. Streets ahead of Modern Vintage. Really strong album and looking forward to getting to know it better. Jay

If I could do a 'best of' his avantasia stuff that would be right up there. But Hourglass, first 2 Masterplan cd's, Ark (Burn The Sun) and The Battle would all be favourites with me. Jay

My all time favourite singer. And as has been said, JR Richards solo output is up there with Opaline in terms of quality. Utter class. Jay

I started with Angra right at the beginning and feel the Matos era started brilliantly but went downhill a little on each subsequent release. However, I'm with Jazzepat with the view Rebirth is their best ever. LOVE that cd. Enjoy all Angra albums to varying levels since but they've never topped Rebirth for me - perfect mix of melody and power. I actually thought Secret Garden was a bit of

Is it a double album then? Didn't know that. Cool.

Sounds like a return to form after a mediocre 3rd album. Pleased as loved the first two. Let's hope the whole cd is quality. Jay

I bought thousands (literally) Of records and cd's from Powercuts over the late 80's early 90's. Best shop EVER!!!! Powercuts, the Banshee, International 1 & 2, Rockworld, Jillys and the Phoenix. Manchester was brilliant for rock in that era. I used to sing in a band called Wild Affair that used to play at the Banshee, Rockworld and the Swinging Sporran. Great days!! Jay

If it's anything like the last cd then there won't be many songs with growls in. Maybe 2 or 3 on 'Songs of Love and Death' had the growls but as said, it adds nothing to this band or their songs. The debut was excellent though so I'm still looking forward to the new one. Jay

These ROF cd's are sooooo overblown compared to when the original Rhapsody started out that I find them kind of hard work. There's some good songs within all the bombast and grandeur, and I like this new one more than the last one, but I don't look forward to them (from both versions of ROF) like I used to. On the other hand I've loved all the Serenity cd's and this new one is no exception to

Ah, well I got my Primal Fear the week before so therefore not mentioned on the original post. Another good cd but not sure at the moment I rate it as highly as Delivering The Black. But, for me, that was my favourite PF cd of them all. Jay

Shakra are very old school Gotthard - and with the Gotthard sound changing quite a bit over the past few years they are the best proponents of that 'crunchy', riff driven, chorus packed rock these days. They did a best of called '33' which would be a good place to start if you were tempted to check out more. Jay

Agree that neither Amarylis or Threat are up there with SOM but still some fabulous songs on both cd's. They were probably spoilt by expectations in some way as SOM (for me) is a top 10 all time album, but I still find lots to enjoy on both Amarylis and Threat. And both are streets ahead of most stuff getting released. Although never warmed to Black Cadillac - one of two or three I could do wi

There are some really cool songs on the Avantasia, Terry. I'd be really surprised if you didn't like it. Pretty varied song-wise too so not a one dimensional listen at all. Agree that the Nordic Union is a strong set of tunes. If you like Eclipse/H.E.A.T style song-writing and Ronnie's vocals you're in for a treat. Also, here's the link for the lead single from the new Shakra cd. Fairly typ

Yeah, they got the cover of Kerrang before No Respect even got released and were given loads of coverage in there plus the Skid Row support in the UK (the Manchester Apollo gig with those two is still one of my all time favourites). Sadly never broke through as big as they should but over the years I have enjoyed everything Davy Vain has released. Pleased to hear there's a new one in April -

Wow - yesterday was a really good day for new music. New cd's from Serenity, Shakra, Avantasia, Nordic Union and Dream Theater. Admittedly, I have only listened to each cd once but I was expecting good things from all these and I'm not disappointed. Obviously there is A LOT of music on the DT cd's so will no doubt take longer to get to know but loving all the other 4. Serenity and Shakr

Yeah, I quite like the cheesy side of Reckless Love. But then again, I liked a lot of 'the shit' that supposedly killed the 80's scene. As a 3 minute piece of pop/rock fun I think it's fine. Jay

Really looking forward to this. Been a Toby fan since Vain Glory Opera and have thought all the Avantasia cd's (with exception of the 2nd) have been superb. Agree that the recent Edguy output has been a bit hit and miss so really pleased to hear AD rates this new Avantasia album highly. Jay

Mega impressed with this. I think, like most, I thought the first cd by this new line up was a return to form but this blows it away. Whereas many of the songs on the last cd seemed (to my ears) unfinished and rushed everything on this cd has been honed to perfection. Production, mix, harmonies, musicianship and songwriting all mirroring the Queensryche we knew and loved but with a modern sound t
