Aren't they going to be re-releasing the Lillian Axe cds soon?

 

Yeah in early December in numbered Digipack format.

 

Their digipacks are pretty amateurish (I have most of those Roadrunner thrash CD's they released a few months back) & the artwork & all-round quality is no better than average, but they sure have some good albums to their name. They just re-issued one of my fave D.M albums, Pestilence "Spheres".

You dont have to buy directly from Metal Mind and have the CDs imported from Poland. There are plenty major distributors that carry their releases

 

any good you can recomend any that has their releases?

The only Metal Mind releases I have are the excellent Collage Re-releases from a few years back. They did a good job with those soundwise and in the packaging. I also have all of the recent live DVD releases from Pendragon x2, Arena, NEO, Jadis etc - all of those are pretty excellent packages as well, coming boxed with additional live CD's and superb artwork. Definately a good label when it comes to Prog stuff in general.

I have the Atrophy and Sadus reissues on the Metal Mind label, and I'm hoping to get a couple of the Believer reissues when they come out as well.

I have no major complaints... although there is an error on two of the Sadus CDs I have (the CD marked SWALLOWED IN BLACK has the A VISION OF MISERY album on it, and vice versa!), so obviously they need a little work in the quality control department!

Other than that, the digi-packs are pretty nice looking and the booklets have all lyrics, liner notes and vintage pictures, very well done. You could do worse.

    • New song 'Fans Of The Dark'.    
    • Shadows of Yesterday - Vinnie Moore
    • Sorry, that wasn't really what I meant. What I was really going for is that the songs on other albums seem to me to have more of a similar feel to them, like you can tell the songs for Freedom Rock were pretty much all written at the same time. I'm not saying that the songs on Force Majeure don't sound like H.E.A.T (even though I maintain it's not as good, based on the first few spins, as their previous efforts), but that they sound, to me, more "scatterbrained" than the selections from other records. That's not an easy thing to explain, but "direction" was the best word I could think of.    Again, I probably could explained my point better. I wasn't advocating for more guitars so much, but for more variety in the guitars we get. One of the best things for me about the first two H.E.A.T albums (less so for Address the Nation, but still there) was the subtle trade-offs between Dalone and Rivers and the solos that switched between them (good examples of this include the guitar work on "Late Night Lady," "Danger Road" and "Tonight," off the top of my head). Simply because Dalone and Rivers played different set ups and had some variance in tone, you could tell the difference between their playing (though admittedly there were times where Eric Rivers was completely underutilized and overshadowed). Because of the the combination of this record's production and the guitars being all Dave, you don't have as much of that, and that's what I was trying to convey.
    • Agree it reminds of earlier material, but I'm much less of a "Hang Tough" guy and much more of a "What A Shame" kind of guy.
    • Skid Row Nelson Steel Panther Harem Scarem WASP Van Hagar Saliva Joey Tempest Michael Sweet White Lion Mr. Big ... are the easy ones for me. Possibly Warrant as well come to think of it. Some other popular ones listed taht I don't agree with would be Slaughter - 2nd album pipped it GNR - always preferred either UYI albums Tuff - really only had 1 1/2 albums so don't count    
    • and the lyrics tick tock time to rock don't make you cringe?? if it was 1986 and I was 16 it might have been just passable but now, no. 
    • Another release that seems to have been completely overlooked here on HH... check out those vids for "Give It Up" and "Love Will Not Let You Down". I swear both tunes sound like something you'd hear from AdrianGale!  Compassion | Akiba Music (bandcamp.com)  
    • I might stone thrown at me, but hear some Scorpions.
    • "One Voice", which is a demo, is the only one I hear the tape "hiss" on...
    • Is that cassette tape hiss I hear at the start of the song? Is the whole album like that or only the demo tracks?
