Operation - Mindcrime should be taught in schools. One of the greatest albums ever made, maybe the greatest concept album, at least IMO.

Was thinking of Cradle of Filth tonight, but seeing two vastly superior bands in Dark Funeral and Immolation tomorrow, so going to Collingwood-Geelong instead.

As we all are. However, to throw them in with the hair metal bunch would be your first mistake. Nowhere near it.
I wasn't calling them glam metal, I just mean anything with big hair which for me covers heavy metal, hair metal and power metal. Everything 80s that isn't thrash, basically.

Everything was ‘big hair’ back then.
Like I said, I'm picky.

To me, Morbid Tales - To Mega Therion is gold. Pandemonium was the beginning of the end.

Likewise a band like Priest - the 70s was amazing but you can throw Turbo in the bin. Even Defenders of the Faith was pushing it.

If it has spandex, teased hair and operatic vocals then there's a strong chance I don't love it. I prefer the ethos of the bay area bands at the time which took a more street approach - basically what you were off stage if what you wear on it and the music is a reflection of that.

No Solace usually send confirmation when stuff has been sent. Looks like I'll be just twiddling my thumbs for a few weeks hoping it all shows up.
