Yeah, they definitely sound like my kinda meat. Will have to keep the name in mind. Nice review too by the way.

I think you'd like 'em. As stated in my review, the lyrics are fairly cheesy, but not any worse than many a metal band back in the '80s. And hey, they have songs about Freddy Krueger and Leatherface...how can an '80s horror movie afficiando such as yourself even try to resist? :P

This one sneaked under my radar. Sounds really good.

For a limited time until November 30th, you can buy this CD, among many others, for only $5 bucks here: http://stormspell.bigcartel.com/

 

Very tempting. If I can find another Stormspell CD I really want, I think I'll go for this....

 

Any recommendations?

Emm, melodic metal fans could have picked STUTZ, TARRGA, BRIAR, CONQUEST, or the new killer GALAXY GROUP EP but it's a mute point now as the webstore is closed until January 15th...

 

In my case, I was very tempted, but the finances are really tight, so had to leave it. I'm not really a huge Melodic Metal fan, more a fan of stright-up Heavy Metal, which is how I'd describe Elm Street. I've had some good stuff from you, so I'm sure I could find more for the want list.

 

Are you away for a few weeks?

Yes, I'm off to Europe for severeral weeks becase even with my current health insurance of $400/mo (which apart from collecting my cash has proved to be pretty useless peice of %@#$) the "wonderful" US health care system is such a rip-off I cannot afford the tests I need without adding a second mortgage to the house...

Sorry to hear about the insurance. Hope the holiday goes well. Don’t suppose you’ll be visiting London? If so I could meet you to buy a copy of that CD… :D

    • "Local News" doesn't even exist anymore.Right out of the gate they slam you with the Covid numbers...the body count...a clusterf__k of  negativity..maybe a little time for weather and sports and then newscast DONE! On radio - same thing  every half hour: rinse-wash-repeat.National / global depression,drug use,suicide rates still climbing....
    • As if we need something else to worry about but with overpopulation and a rapidly changing world due to climate issues..... In 2009, a patient in Japan developed a new fungal infection on their ear. The highly transmissible Candida auris fungus had been previously unknown to science (and resistant to the drugs available to treat it), but within a few years, cases started emerging in Venezuela, Iran, Russia, and South Africa. Scientists assumed that the spread was due to human travel, but when they sequenced the cases, they were surprised to find that these strains weren't closely related at all. Instead, scientists were seeing multiple, independent infections of an unknown fungal disease, emerging around the world, all at the same time. About a third of people infected with Candida auris die from the infection within 30 days, and there have now been thousands of cases in 47 countries. Some scientists think this sudden boom in global cases is a harbinger of things to come.
    • Agreed. I subbed to Russell Brand starting about 2 months ago. Yes, he's on the Left, but VERY even-handed IMO.
    • It's so hard to find unbiased info on anything these days...I just wish this virus wasn't being politicized...trust the science...once the science figures out wtf is going on which it hasn't yet....
    • Did you hear the fabled "roadmap to reopening the borders" has now been halted/delayed due the new (horrified screaming) variants? It's so predictable and the media machine are backing the states the whole way. More people at home, more people watching TV, more people buying shit from billionaires, more money for advertising, more wages for journalists , more votes for the government, more laws to control the populace. Win win win for elites.
    • This is currently the best independent media commentator on the internet. He comes from the Left, but old-school classical liberal and not the new devisive identity politics. Here he is discussing the shit going down in Australia.  
    • Gotta love the irresponsible national / global media."The new normal" for these idiots is the endless,fear mongering ritual abuse of the populace where any news on the "virus".."variants"..etc brings another flogging with the covid stick.Anyone who dares to question the over-reaching actions by government,"the science" or the asinine-repetitive-exploitive newsroom press propaganda are labeled a "conspiracy theorist"..or misinformation spreader...we've seen it all before -  try it on someone else.
    • Erik sounds good but song does little for me.  Really don't like the chorus...if you can even call that a chorus.
    • Got my refund today, fucking stupid, I was looking forward to this, oh well Loudness in March, havent seen them since 82, I was 5, my very first concert, super stoked for that.
