  1. I recently came into possession of a rehearsal tape from Glacier during their most classic era [1983 - 1985]. The whole tape with 5 separate recordings has been converted, and posted to my blog. http://pdxunderground.blogspot.com/2014/09/glacier-rehearsals-1983-1985.html
  2. Just a few rarities that have come into my possession over the last few months, but there seems to be zero into about them on the internet. Glacier - Misc. Rehearsals 83 - 85 I have a friend who's only 21, but our bands play lots of shows together, and I recently found out that his Dad was an original member of Glacier, and a few weeks later, this rehearsal cassette was handed to me. It has a handful of practice recordings from 1983 - 1985, and songs can be heard in various stages. Gargoyle - s/t I got this from the same guy, and it's a version of the s/t full length that was given out to friends before the release on New Renaissance. Obviously, the cover is different, and is just xerox copied. The recording sounds like the same mix, but has a different track order, so I can only assume that the label decided to create a different tracklist. Diamond Edge - Opaque Reality 1995 demo tape from the same band that released the Head Above Water EP a few years earlier. I full understand why I can't find any info about the other two tapes, but it puzzles me as to why the internet has zero info about this one at all. Info about Head Above Water is scattered across numerous sites and message boards, so I thought I would be able to find something. And here's a closeup of the Glacier rehearsal track listing.

    Mind Funk S/T from 1991

    I could never get into these guys, but I really think that was only because I was so into Uniform Choice, and couldn't handle such a different sound/image for Pat Dubar.
  4. KISS Some of the hits are catchy, but I have never been able to make it through an entire studio album.

    Tribunal / Divebomb Records Bandcamp

    I used to buy so many Tribunal releases in the late 90s / early 2000s.

    Black Sabbath - 13 (June 10th)

    The songs are pretty good, but it's way overproduced, which makes it sound like it could be any number of recent Ozzy solo records. It definitely should have had a grittier feel to it.

    Megadeth - Super Collider (June 4th)

    It's not their best effort, but it's still better than anything Metallica has been doing. It will probably get a listen once a year out of me.
  8. Definitely Bon Jovi. I wish they would have quit 30 years ago.
