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.

 

Some very positive reviews online in addition to the one posted above:

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
