A question about what is and is not allowed on the site.

Recommended Posts

I have recently seen a few entries on this site that were never officially released on CD, and were only ever bootlegs, and thought that was against the rules.

And today I have seen that a DVD has been entered into the database, so are DVD's/Blu Ray's now allowed on the site as well?

List the ones you think shouldn't be here, and Mike or I will take a look.

Regarding DVD/Blu-Ray releases, this is a tough one, as there are a lot of live performances now that are released as one or more of the following:

1. CD + DVD in one package

2. CD + Blu-Ray in one package

3. Separate CD and Blu-Ray releases of the same performance(s).

For example, Fair Warning - Two Nights to Remember that came out earlier this year is available as a 2-DVD package, a 2-Blu-Ray package, and a 4-CD package.

I think that if it is released on CD as part of any of these packages, it's worth including on the site.

The Steel Panter - British invasion that has just gone up on the site does not include a CD to my knowledge. I have only ever seen it on 2 DVD or single Blu ray.


The bootlegs or wrong entries that I have seen are:

Wrathchild - Trash queens (only ever available on vinyl or bootleg CD)

LA Guns - Collectors edition No 1 (only ever available on vinyl or as a bonus CD with the Hollywood Raw album)

Rankelson - Both albums (both never available on CD, but will be released next year probably as a double album)


That's just the ones I have spotted.

Oh, and not 100% convinced about the first two London albums.

The debut was certainly never issued on CD by Shrapnel as the entry says, and the only releases I can find any info on are Timewarp which is most defo a bootleg, an unoffficial Russian pressing which claims to be Shrapnel and one by a label called "Vamps Worldwide" which I am struggling to find out if they are genuine or not as they seem to have only ever released albums by London over a 5 year period.


Don't Cry Wolf was apparentl issued by Retrospect but most sites say that was an unofficial release, and I don't wanna go down that rabbit hole of whether Retrospect was genuine or not with all their releases. That topic has been done to death.

    • I met The Scream in the oddest of ways. I used to have a buddy who drove a taxi cab. I used to ride along with him once in awhile and we'd hit the rock clubs. One night, some long haired dudes hoped in his cab wanting to go to Hammerjacks. It was The Scream. They were shocked that I new their band and the song "Outlaw". Got a signed pic of them. 
    • Fuck! It's not on the Spotifies, yet. I wanna hear it, meow!
    • Hmm... Nope, actually the grammar checks out. 
    • I already wrote a little bit about the samples. Now that the whole songs are out I got reminded why they were my favourite band until they broke up. They got some crazy energy and they're a puzzle... 4 great musicians who leave enough space for each other to shine. Even though here and there there could be a bit more space for the vocals but yeah, guitars were the concept of this album and that's fine. Trond is probably my favourite living guitar player, nobody writes riffs like him.  In my earlier post I said Trond (Teeny) sings Call of the wild. Have to correct that, it's Bernt (Flash). Next time, let Åge sing... or Trond... the song is fine but the voice is a bit underwhelming. Where does it hurt & Shadows of eternity are my favourites after the first run through, great songs with a heaviness never heard from Wig Wam. Silver linings is very melodic but I guess one or five less repetitions of the chorus would have still been enough. Hard love is actually better thsn I thought after listening to the samples, great build up. My kaleidoscope ark is a great ballad, exactly what I missed when Wig Wam wasn't there. One little point of criticism maybe... the production is veeery rough. Energetic but some mistakes could have been edited out. The first bar of the Where does it hurt verse has a little rhythm error in the palm mutes of the guitar; there was one solo that was a bit too slow somewhere, I also heard some tiny wrong notes of the singer. For a live performance that is usual but as a studio production a bit strange... at least I haven't heard things like that before on a well done record. Anyway, these are great songs and I hope that it's only the beginning of a long future. 
    • Wind Outta Sails - Fashion Police
    • Both are good. He sounds great. All fingers crossed.
    • Hypnotized and Shadows Of Eternity stand out for me and as you say it’s great to have these guys back. Really good album. Tails off slightly towards the end I think but love the heavier sound. Today has been a fine day for music! 
    • Epica - The Holographic Principle (Deluxe)  Epica - The Quantum Enigma (Deluxe) Epica - The Solace System Stream Of Passion - A War Of Our Own Xandria - Sacrificium Xandria - Theater Of Dimensions Creye - II W.E.T - Retransmission  Wig Wam - Never Say Die
    • I was referring to the appalling lack of grammar on display in the post I highlighted.
