suffice to say that I am of course right - those 4 songs are all killers.

 

The 2 albums you need are 'Grand Illusion' (which has 'Still Alive' and a whole host of killer songs) and '8th Sin' from last year.

 

Cheers

first album is the best....but i love and the other 3 they made next....nowadays,though, if i'm going to play something from them it would be from the first one....i still laugh when i recall the reviews about it from the "metal gurus"(sadly i also have in mind some reviews from some great fanzines, not only the crappy and rotten major mags)....power metal like stratovarius and other crap like that....fekk them one thousand times....they've never heard of pure swedish heavy metal like gotham city, mindless sinners, universe, atc,parasite, syron vanes, depzon,crystal pride and other stuff like that which was more similar to "in a time of blood and fire".... still to this day i find it mystery how a bunch of thrash/vlack/death/punk guys came up with such a timeless record....

Well if I bought everything you recommend I'd be living in a cardboard box in Waterloo station right now. :D

 

I'll trust you on this one and have ordered "8th Sin" from Amazon...

Grand Illusion is maybe slightly better, but 8th Sin is well worth owning. Some great songs on that one.

Ahh thanks. I was aware of "Tales of Mystery" as I remember seeing something about it in Metal Maniacs back when it came out but I didn't know about "Blood and Fire". I just happened to see "Sacred Talisman" in a store and picked it up but have never seen the others in any stores over here. I also have "Afterlife" and "Grand Illusion" and I like both of those. :headbanger:

The first cd is expensive so if anyone is interested he should pick-up that great compilation Sharatan has mentioned...

 

It's listed on Century Media's site too as is "Tales" but it seems to be temporarily out of stock.

They have much of their catalog at a good price.

You ordered it? Or have it in your hands type "bought it"? You will definitely get your $6.00 worth. And more. ;)

Just ordered it. Should be here in a week or so. Hoping I like it too mate. :)

    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/      
    • I thought of this one today for some reason.  I'm sure everyone here is familiar with "Talking Heads - Psycho Killer" from '77, a very strange track in it's own right, but does anyone here remember the 1980 parody track "Psycho Chicken" by "The Fools"?      
    • That's more like it mate. Your best one so far. Keep it up.
