Listening to the 2021 Remix & Remaster of Iron Savior's "The Landing" album. Actually sounds pretty good. Highly processed guitars and all. Worth taking a listen for the mighty "Heavy Metal Never Dies" alone if anyone is interested.
Heavy Metal Never Dies is an absolute classic. Havent really listened to much beyond that. Ill give The Landing a go today then :thumbsu:

Gotta say on first listen I'm quite enjoying this Exodus disc.
Got through 7 songs whilst driving this morning. Found it really lacking IMO. That said If I see a $20 jewel case edition I will pick it up though not dropping $35 for the digi edition JB has on its website.

Never been a fan of Exodus vocals in general. Musically they're killer but find Zetro a bit grating.
Love his vocals. Didn't love his 'death metal' ones that I heard this morning though. Just went to JB and nothing really there. Be nice if Melbourne had a Utopia.

1914 - Where Fear and Weapons Meet. Interesting symphonic BM (and it is nice to get a Ukrainian BM band that deal with war who don't seem to be NSBM for a change). It worked on me as the album progressed; from the first song it seemed like over-produced BM for a Wacken audience. That impression didn't necessarily change, but I found myself liking it more, though, and am now interested in their other work even if they're not the typical raw BM from Scandinavia or Deutschland that I tend to be obsessed with. The symphonic elements contain a certain bombast which reminds me of Ex Deo, for some reason, even though both bands play very different styles. It has led to me chasing it with Ex Deo - I Caligvla (Roman history is my favourite history).

The album before ‘The Blind Leading the Blind’ was one of my 2019 albums of the year.

Not sure if anyone follows Annihilator main man Jeff Waters’ exploits but these pics of his Watersound Studios in the UK are pretty cool.

I saw the other day that he's recording with Lombardo?! Good get
And one of the 18000 iced earth singers.

Annihilator have some absolute classics (1st two albums are largely mint), and some absolute dross too.
As amazing of a guitarist as he is, i think he needs a good songwriting partner to help keep him focused and to weed out the rubbish

Yes Lombardo & Stu Block.

I’d agree with most of this, and I’d add he needs to work with a good vocalist again (hello Stu Block), Waters’ vocals are a bit bland.

FYI - Recent album his best in 15 years.

Are rumours about Drudkh true?
