Transit - Catchfire - 1994



Last of three, first one for me. I read comparisons to Gotthard and Shakra, and not to far removed, but maybe slightly funkier. I'll take a casual run back through the first two, especially as they're priced now.

Suspyre - A Great Divide - 2007



I dig these guys. This is my 3rd album from them. I think I like When Time Fades better though.

Nightwish - Showtime Storytime - 2013



I've only been through the first disc, entire concert. It's definitely enjoyable, although video editing is a(n ongoing) problem. Floor is pretty awesome, and I'm certainly not a Tarja or nothing guy, but it really doesn't sound like Nightwish to me, although I was never all that drawn to the Anette Olzon era material in the first place.

If you like the Who and Wilko Johnson of Dr Feelgood you'll love this. Best album of 2014 (so far).

Orphaned Land - The Road to or Shalem - 2011



Must have mistaken these guys for someone else, 1/2 way through disc 1, I gave up. They're not terrible but not my cup of tea.

Place Vendome - Thunder In The Distance - 2013



Took forever to get a decent priced copy, and maybe it's great expectations, but this hasn't grabbed me yet.

Benedictum - Obey - 2013



Sonically this is way different from the last one. The last one KILLED at the bottom end. Seems to be less melodic too. Definitely a let down.

Fatal Smile - Neo-Natural Freaks - 2007

Black Label Society - Catacombs Of The Black Vatican - 2014 - Deluxe Edition



Definitely some good stuff on here. Even some hints of olde school Alice In Chains. There are probably too many mellow moments though. 2 extra bonus tracks over standard.

Lacuna Coil - Broken Crown Halo - 2014 - Deluxe Edition



I've listened to this a bunch of times, and it's innocuous enough, but nothing's really sticking. This is really the middle tier edition, as there's a 3 disc version, but Century Media isn't telling what's on the 2nd cd. The DVD is standard fare making of, the most that can be said about it is (it's got Cristina and) it's probably the last footage of the the two guys that are bowing out .

Persona Non Grata - Quantum Leap - 2011



Aris Pirris may not be for everyone, but you can't fault his enthusiasm. I really like this, as it's got a great balance of metal and prog.

Jaded Heart - Live In Cologne - 2013



Probably paid too much for this, but my chance of seeing them live is pretty much near zero. At 7 songs, it's way too short considering their catalog, but there's some bonus stuff that flushes it out a little. Definitely enjoyable, just wish the setlist was 3(+) times as long, and least a couple of Bormann tunes.

KXM - KXM - 2014



Pinnick, George Lynch and the drummer from Korn put together a pretty decent effort. A little dark/grungy for my taste. Would prefer some King's X/Dokken/Lynch Mob harmonies.

Loudness - Thunder In The East - 1985



This was/is a great album, as were the next 5, great show (With Motley Crue on the Theatre Of Pain tour). This is where I started getting into Japanese Metal.

Iron Mask - Fifth Son Of Winterdoom - 2013



Not bad, leans heavy on the Yngwie formula, nothing catching immediately.

Thunder Tribe - War Chant - 2013



Not bad, kind of Barlowesque with more trad metal roots.

Lilian Axe - Deep Red Shadows - 2010



I was scared off of this due to it being described as acoustic and remakes, but there's a few decent electric tunes that weren't recycled.

Lana Lane - El Dorado Hotel - 2012



She's definitely less strident on this one, and sounds pretty damn good, but the whole thing seems to lack energy.
