I saw Olli Hartmann was on the roster, and thought it was Olli Herman. Got excited for a minute.

I love Herman but Hartmann is a much better singer imo.

It was more the idea of the direction this be album would be taken if Herman was on it that got me excited. If that makes sense.

Mhm. I love Tobias Sammet. Everything he releases is good. Really consistent. I'll always buy new albums from Avantasia and Edguy.

I haven't followed this project, but I'm really diggin' that tune above. How are his other albums? and how do they compare to the track above?

 

Hard question to answer. There is a lot of material to sort through, but in short... yeah, if you like that you'll dig the other stuff. The albums vary from ballads to "power metal" and everything inbetween... and there's so many albums (including double albums) and songs to sift through. Some solid stuff in there, but also a lot of very weak stuff too, imo.

Well now. Geoff Tate hasn't sounded this good in over twenty years. Perhaps that has to do with him having nothing to do with the music here. Thank you Toby for giving us a respectable offering from Tate. Even if it is only one song.

I agree with KarpeyRyd. Really enjoy this album.

 

 

Ronnie Lee, Jorn and Robert Mason. Magic.

 

 

 

 

Absolutely love this one. It's interesting, there's quite a few songs lately that have a "sympathy for the devil" vibe.

Fate - If not for the Devil, Gus G - Blame it on me, to name a couple.

    • I like this song, no issue with the GV. What don't you like?
    • Hello, me in 2019. I used to think that way but over the course of the last two years I have lost all respect I ever had for the police. In this instance, I honestly don't know. I'm sure there's two sides to the story, but I'm far less inclined these days to feel any sympathy for the police considering the roles they've played in covid management. Fuck them, I regrettably say these days. 
    • How overproduced is his voice?
    • Pushing the kids was pretty harsh, but there is no context. Judging by the way she was speaking, accusing the police of groping her friend, you'd think that she was likely inciting them. Doesn't justify the shove of a kid, but in a karmic world, possibly got what she deserved. I hate these clips, and the Avi is a fucking dick. He dissipates what he does by leaning so far to the right that he's as bad as the lefties. The cops wouldn't be detaining a young girl unless they had a reason. People honestly think that all 10 cops there was all in on being unfair and persecuting the girl? nope.
    • John Cooper of Skillet fame wanted to experiment with a heavier style than his main band allowed for, so the Fight the Fury side project was born. As you can tell from the video, it basically sounds like Skillet crossed with Slipknot. Not for everyone but I kind of dig it.
    • You've presented a whole load of easily debunked statements about atheism. When corrected you've taken your bat and ball home.  You had a chance for a conversation but for some reason unable to have that conversation. The you just resort to insults.   I turn my other cheek. 
    • The arrogance and hypocrisy in this statement is what is staggering. Maybe we could turn this into a big collective circle jerk for all the poor misunderstood atheists. I will leave you to it. Enjoy.
    • I know this thread is Mr.AOR's, so I won't impose, but I do need to post this one. I've posted it before, but I do think this track truly encampasses the true meaning of our modern day Christmas.     
    • Nice SCTV reference.   Rick Moranis is an absolute legend and good guy by all accounts.
