Jorn may be starting the "constipated rocker" subgenre with these videos. That being said, I have enjoyed everything I have heard from this upcoming release. Looking forward to it more than anything he has released under his own name in some time.

Been curious about this - ZP is the original Dragonforce singer. Always liked him with Dragonforce. I was lucky enough to catch Skid Row with Harnell last year and it was really good. Hoping TNT comes my way when they play the States.

He is one that I have been wanting to see. Sounds like a good show. Cool to hear the next CD is supposed to go back in a rock direction. The last one was ok, but was my least favorite of his by far because of the more poppy direction.

I second that...especially S.U.N. - I love the album!

I guess it is the more extreme version of what happened the first time I heard Waking Up the Neighbours...I thought Mutt Lange really made Bryan Adams sound like Def Leppard.

When I saw them last October, I was impressed how good he sounded live. I think from various internet posts I'd read, I was expecting him to not sound nearly as good as he did.

I liked the Kiss of Life album, LOVED the What the Hell? album, and liked Stereo Messiah (i.e. liked it but did not think it was as good as What the Hell?) So I have high hopes for the new one. I haven't listened to any advance tracks yet though...

I get the "they killed our music" sentiment, but I think sometimes we have unfairly blamed the bands, whether it be Pearl Jam, Nirvana, whomever. Truth is (at least IMO), it was the labels that "killed" our music - they over-saturated the airwaves with sappy ballads until the general public got sick of them and thought that was the only thing of value our bands had to offer.

Funny thing...I have not noticed this with the Flores stuff. Maybe a bit with the Del Vecchio stuff. But the discussion reminds me of the days (geez what's it been 10-14 years or so?) when almost everything from Frontiers was produced by Fabrizio V Zee Grozzi. That was one where I noticed, over time, things began to sound very same-y. Initially, I liked the stuff, but it really did become a &

Glad to see good reviews...mine is on the way, have not heard anything on it yet. My favorite was the first one, The Heroin Diaries. I liked This is Gonna Hurt ok, and thought Modern Vintage was alright but I wasn't knocked out by it. If this new one is closer to the debut in terms of song quality and rocking out, I will be happy.

Would love to attend one of these one day. I never heard, who filled in for the late, great Marcel Jacob in Talisman? I pick up most Frontiers releases so to get a live showcase of these bands would be very cool. I wonder if the Alessandro and friends CD sold out? I remember last year they had copies of the exclusive Torch tribute to Jimi and Fergie left over and I was able to order

Admittedly, I have only had the chance to listen to it once, but I enjoyed it. The singer reminded me a bit of Nick Walsh from Slik Toxik. I will have to give it some more listens to render a verdict but on first impression this is one of the rare occasions I don't agree with Andrew's assessment.

Ah, really? I am planning to see Sonata Arctica with Leaves Eyes as one of the opening acts in December. It will be my first time seeing them and I was looking forward to seeing them Liv Kristine and all. Hope the replacement is just as good.

Who wins? That's easy. US! The music fans are the winners this weekend! Treat, The Defiants, Drive, She Said, Chris Ousey...as Otis and Lex Luthor once said "What more could anyone ask?"

Actually, I don't think that throne is similar to the one Grohl was using...I think it is actually the same one Grohl was using. It looks identical, maybe with a few less guitars, and in the You Tube clip I watched Axl even said, "I borrowed this from friend of mine".

Haven't heard any of these recent shows, but I will have to look for clips now. I thought he sounded ok on the Appetite For Democracy - Live from Vegas release from a few years ok, though not as ferocious as his glory days. I am wondering how Mark Slaughter will sound live when I see them in June. I last saw them live in 1997, and had heard via internet chatter and some YouTube clips that

I like it, but then I have liked Arnel since he was first rumored to be joining Journey. Anyone have any info on the album - when will it be released, what label (to give me a clue if it will be available easily in the US or if I will need to look for an international seller online)?

Wanted to get people's input on the new live CD from Royal Hunt. I like Royal Hunt, but have held off purchasing this one. Reason being, almost every live release from Frontiers anymore includes a live DVD with the live CD(s) and this one does not - double-live album only. Frankly, that fact disappointed me because I really enjoy the CD/DVD combo package on these live releases. Nevertheless,

Lots of great memories you all shared! Very cool! Thanks! I'm jealous of some of the gigs you all mentioned...Queensryche opening for Dio? Wow - never had the pleasure of seeing Dio live. That would have been quite the show. I had no idea Queensryche was playing here (Denver) tonight...I don't usually miss concert news like that. Hmmph.

To each their own, but I will say this - I am probably that rare person that loves 80's Europe AND current Europe equally. Songs like Final Countdown, Scream of Anger, Superstitious, and Open Your Heart are flat out classics, but I very much enjoy songs like War of Kings, Hole in My Pocket, Last Look at Eden, and The Beast too. I got the chance to see them live for the first time ever last year

I enjoyed the Queensryche thread CCM started below. A few people mentioned how they first got into the band and I thought that might make an interesting thread of its own. So I'll start off: For me, the first time I heard them was seeing the Eyes of a Stranger video on MTV (back when they played such things). I loved the song, and liked the look of the video - plus I thought the drum set w

Definitely not what we are used to - to me it is like a mashup of CM, and Marilyn Manson, with some of the modern flavors of Degreed (but without the tunefulness of Degreed). I don't hate it but I prefer them big, lush, and bombastic to modern, distorted, and very light on hooks.

Got it yesterday, but still need to listen. I became a fan when they had John Prakesh, so I will miss him I'm sure. Still looking forward to hearing this though.

Good point. I mean, if Rockenfield and Wilton became brain-eating zombies, his behavior would be totally justified. Otherwise, he is the one with the problem. Its all about context. :-)

I would say the Queensryche of today is still great, but there is definitely a marked difference between the Tate that was and the Tate that is.

This is a hard one I think. Not as obvious as Motorhead - Motorhead without Lemmy would have been pretty pointless. the Eagles on the other hand - Frey was not the Eagles alone in the way that Lemmy WAS Motorhead. At the very least, Henley, Schmidt, and Walsh together could still be a big draw. I could even see them going out as Henley-Walsh-Schmidt, or HWS or something. Maybe retiring the E

I liked the Purple album myself. I didn't discover Deep Purple's music until much later in life, so that may have helped in the liking for me. The originals were not sacred and precious to me, as they seem to have been for some. I caught them on the tour for the Purple album too and they were fantastic! First time I'd seen them since the Slip of the Tongue tour. My only regret is never c

My favorite work by Jorn is probably his stuff with Masterplan and Allen-Lande, but he has put out some quality stuff under his own name too. The only complaint would be, if you listen to album after album, there can be a same-y dirge-y plod to his music...I do often wish he would change it up more, more uptempo stuff, more melodic stuff. No doubt he is a quality singer though. I didn't notice
