Chris Impellitteri is my favorite guitar shredder (well, next to Pete, of course ;) ), and has released a whole bunch of stellar melodic metal albums. My personal faves are the ones with Rob Rock on lead vocals, particularly the perfect triple-hit of "Screaming Symphony," "Eye of the Hurricane," & "Crunch."

 

My vote goes to "Crunch," which added a serious metal, uh, crunch to the melodic metal shredding that just worked perfectly. "Fear No Evil" off that CD is far & away my all-time favorite Impellitteri tune.

 

So, any other fans out there? Tell us which one tickles your ears.

I should probably be shot for this but I have never listened to one of his cds. :anon:

 

No you shouldn't be shot..ive actually spoken with many folks who haven't the faintest clue who Chris Impellitteri even is (or have never heard Impellitteri) .I prefer Graham Bonnet,so id have to go with "Stand In Line" and "System X".Although i like Rock' and those are quality releases as well....Still impressed by that cover of "Since You've Been Gone" on Stand In Line"-man it f'n cranks!..............

The only one I've heard is "Pedal To The Medal," which kinda sucked... though I've been told that particular disc is a pretty major detour from the rest of Impellitteri's material, I've just never gotten round to checking any of the other stuff out...

I wouldn't go so far as to say you should be shot, but a public flogging isn't out of the question. :whip:

A public flogging? I was hoping I could get by with just a tar and feathering. :unsure:

Stand In Line for me.

I have "Screaming Symphony" & "Stand In Line". I think "Stand In Line" is the one with Rainbow's "Since You've Been Gone" on it, with Graham Bonnet singing? If so, that album gets my vote.

Well said Mark! :drink:

 

Seriously though, I went with Screaming Symphony. :banger:

 

Wes, sorry brother tar and feather would be acceptable if you said you didn't know who Pete Seeger was, or the Chad Mitchell Trio... not knowing who Impelliteri is however, wait a sec...

 

...yep, it's right here in the manual, "public flogging." Sorry bud, happens to the best of us... :(

What does the manual say for those of us who've only heard one Impellitteri album, and didn't like it? :yikes:

Correction: I do know who he is but just hadn't heard one of his cds, even though I've now heard "Answer to the Master" thanks to Jarred.

 

And by the way the Chad Mitchell Trio is my second fav band ever after Menudo(the Ricky Martin Years only) of course. :whistle:

    • Brilliant album...oh how I pine for a follow up 
    • Releases July 26. $47.08 at ImportCDs: https://www.importcds.com/dynamite-china-years-complete-recordings-1988-1993/5013929929920 8CD complete collection of recordings released by China Records. Featuring what most consider to be the classic line-up of The Dogs D'Amour; Jo 'Dog' Almeida on guitar, Steve James on bass, the onomatopoeic Bam on drums, and of course fronted by songwriter and singer, the inimitable Tyla. Propelled by the albums' three singles 'The Kid from Kensington', 'I Don't Want You to Go' and 'How Come It Never Rains' edging their way up the charts, when The Dogs D'Amour's genre-defining 1988 "debut" 'In The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2) was released in 1988, it must have looked like the band was an overnight sensation. But this couldn't have been further from the truth. The Dogs D'Amour originally formed in 1983, and had already recorded two previous "debut" albums. First was 1984's now highly collectable 'The State We're In', for Finnish label Kumibeat. Further recordings were made in 1985 and 1986 for Watanabe Records in Japan, and it's the latter where this collection kicks off. 'The (Un)Authorised Bootleg Album' (CD1) was the record originally intended for Japan. The second set in this collection is the aforementioned In 'The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2), bursting with classics. A highly prolific band in their earliest days, 'Errol Flynn' (re-titled 'King Of The Thieves' in the States) (CD3) was released in 1989 as was the extended mini-album, 'A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles Vol. 1' (CD4), a collection of acoustic songs that reached the UK Top 20. 1990 saw the release of '... Straight?!!' (CD5) featuring the singles 'Victims of Success', 'Empty World' and 'Back On The Juice'. Unfortunately, and in true rock 'n' roll tradition, the band split up on stage in Los Angeles in 1991. Thankfully the band regrouped for the self-explanatory '... More Unchartered Heights Of Disgrace' (CD6) in 1993. This eight CD collection is completed with no less than two discs of rarities, live tracks and B-sides with 'Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD7) and 'Even More Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD8), making this the most complete and comprehensive collection of the band's recordings for China.   - Disc 1 - 1 Firework Girl 2 Chains 3 Gold 4 Pourin' Out My Heart 5 Wait Until I'm Dead 6 How Do You Fall in Love Again? 7 Kiss This Joint 8 Heroine 9 Tales of Destruction 10 Dynamite Jet Saloon 11 Swingin' the Bottle - Disc 2 - 1 Debauchery 2 I Don't Want You to Go 3 How Come It Never Rains 4 Last Bandit 5 Medicine Man 6 Gonna Get It Right 7 Everything I Want 8 Heartbreak 9 Billy Two Rivers 10 Wait Until I'm Dead 11 Sometimes 12 The Kid from Kensington 13 The State I'm in - Disc 3 - 1 Drunk Like Me 2 Goddess from the Gutter 3 Hurricane 4 Satellite Kid 5 Errol Flynn 6 Planetary Pied Piper 7 Princess Valium 8 Dogs Hair 9 Trail of Tears 10 Ballad of Jack 11 The Prettiest Girl in the World 12 The Girl Behind the Glass 13 Things Seem to Go Wrong 14 Oooh!
