Tigers of Pan Tang 'S/T' on (quality varies on this - songs like Glad Rags and I Got The Music In Me can bugger off). Picked it up from Heartland (along with Jaguar's 'Power Games', Blitzkrieg's 'A Time of Changes' and Witchers Creed 'AFTT'). Funnily enough, none of these cds were in the metal section. The first three were filed in hard rock and Witchers Creed in stoner. Good to see some old NWOBHM bands on the shelf. Saw a second hand copy of Venom's 'CBTS' cd on Neat (this pressing fetches a bit of coin). It hadn't been priced and I was in a rush so didn't bother to ask.
Ive been banging on about that Tygers for ages. One of my ‘surprises of the year’. Blood Red Sky, Devil you Know, Only the Brave, Do It Again and the mighty Dust sure getting a place on my backyard bbq party tape.

Haha yeah. They'd probably be fine in a few EU countries I imagine, but yeah. Germany and the likes would be a no-go. Kinda disappointing tbh though.
Think that's a Finland only affair at the moment. I enjoy a lot of what Mikko produces and order from him quite a bit. Plays black metal, noise, grind, stoner, doom and RAC. He runs record labels and a store. He produces porn. His mailorder sells a large variety of music. This bloke isn't the face of the fourth reich - just someone with an interest in underground subcultures etc. For what it's worth I'd fancy a number of RAC types would not want to associate with someone like him. Best the Brunswick St black metal fans start concerning themselves with real targets - plenty of RAC shows in Germany they can look to protest. Just gets a bit harder when the people they are protesting are happy to fight back with violence.

Yes. Thought of you as soon as I saw it. Opener is a cracker.

Paradise Lost - Shades of God. Overshadowed by Icon & Draconian Times but superb nonetheless. Pity the Sadness containing one of my all time fave guitar solos full of feeling and emotion.

Hard to think of a solo I enjoy more tbh. Tornado of Souls and Sweet Child of Mine probably my top 2 of all time.

PTS is a great song - just wish the chorus appeared more than twice. Ripping solo but I feel the chorus more. Reckon my top five solos are gonna be La Rocque ones though followed randomly by James Murphy, KK/Tipton, Murray/Smith, Becker, Mustaine/Friedman, John Norum, Steer/Amott (NDTI), Sherman/Denner, La Rocque/Blakk and for standalone random ones, the soloing on Fermented Offal Discharge (got this on now - incredible), Mirror Mirror and of course, the magical soloing in Therion's 'Asgard' (love solos which have feeling and I think this one nails it).

Asgård. Nice one.

Of course let’s not forget the mighty Hear N Aid Stars ‘solo’ which goes for almost 3 hours on the extended version lol. Great song actually.

So I ordered a new copy of Silent Stage, the final masterpiece from the mighty Finish melodic death-doom legends Rapture.

Excited beyond belief to finally have a physical copy, I almost destroyed the package opening it Monday after it arrived. What do you think I found inside?

“Five Days Married & Other Laments”.
Songs and Dance from Northern Greece, 1928-1958.

fu** me. I’m shattered.

Alice Cooper touring February. Awesome. Teenage Frankenstein and Roses on White Lace are in the setlist. Would like The Great American Success Story, Chop Chop Chop, Time to Kill and Freedom as well. I would be transported back to 1987 - 1988.
For me & my mates it was Trash & Hey Stoopid, giving The Last Temptation a spin for the first time now. Might grab a ticket on Monday, where did you see the current set list?
