Glenns story

[QUOTE=metalis4ever;43900566]I am pumped about the Opeth/Mastadon/Ghost show!!! They are doing a rotating headline and it



Before getting lost in my novella haha....How did you get into Rock?

I had older friends in the neighborhood that gave me 3 tapes for my 8th birthday: Iron Maiden - Piece of Mind, Black Sabbath - Heaven and Hell and Ozzy Osbourne - Blizzard of Ozz ....Needless to say my parents weren't very happy My Mom and I went to all the shows together she loved rock music. She died in Dec 1981 last show we saw was first row Priest, Maiden Whitesnake. All those bands in red we saw together. We also were profesional Radio contest winners. Winning on 7 stations in Atlanta each week so most shows we saw for free and won album collections. We even took other kids in school to shows.

That's the thing, I skipped Rock and went straight to Metal which is why I have strange likes in Rock....Deep Purple, Rainbow, Scorpions, UFO, The Kinks, Blue Oyster Cult, 10 Years After, Cream, Guns 'N Roses, King Crimson, Kiss and Rush are really the only Rock bands I could ever get into...

Been a long while since I've had time to post, but I had to chime in how psyched I am about the Opeth/Mastodon/Ghost tour. I personally loved Heritage. Sure it's more Steve Wilson/King Crimson classic prog than death metal, but I'm more of a prog guy anyway.

It's also my 1st time seeing Ghost live. They remind me of the 2nd coming of King Diamond/Mercyful Fate ... Ghost isn't really breaking any new ground, but there's nothing wrong with that, as they're great at what they do.

Currently watching the Power Metal episode of Metal Evolution ... for those who have VH1 Classic ... tommorow night is the season finale focusing on PROG METAL!! They saved the best for last

though i've yet to hear the new one... i agree, nightwish without tarja has been a disappointment. its just not the same. same goes for the gathering without anneke.

Both great episodes!!!! Rumor has it King Diamond is touring the United States August 2012...I can only hope I LOVE the King!!!!!

I'm skipping out on the Opeth/Mastodon/Ghost show, I've seen both Opeth and Mastodon multiple times live and I;d rather wait and see Ghost on a headlining tour

I agree Anneke was awesome and although Silje is ok she is much better in Octavia Sperati....

Not familiar with Octavia Sperati... will have to see how it compares. some of my less than enthusiastic response to post anneke is attributed to the music as well.

yeah while i love opeth.... between seeing them both so many time and being less than excited about the new opeth album, i decided to skip the show as well

IMHO the best Octavia Sperati album is "Grace Submerged" their other album "Winter Enclosures" is good too but I;d start with "Grace Submerged".

I am buying my Symphony-X/Iced Earth tickets tomorrow that should be an amazing show!!

Hi everyone,
I've been lurking around these forums for a good while but usually only go into a few threads- today, I thought I'd branch out a bit and found this one
DH and I are both into metal, however, I also like a bit of pretty much everything else, my musical tastes include; Edith Piaf, Imelda May, music from 'The Musicals', Prodigy, Incubus, Megadeth, Tool, Slayer, Rob Zombie, Stampin' Ground, Machine Head, Chimaira, Rammstein, Lamb of God...

...and to add something to the current conversation, I've seen Nightwish 4 times - 2 with Tarja (one festival and one gig) and 2 without ( both festivals). I only own albums of them with Tarja and as much as I wanted to I did not like them without. Despite her accent meaning her words are often misinterpreted (and often with comic effect!) I really loved her voice and for my part I dont really think of Nightwish without her as 'Nightwish'

Nightwish will be Nightwish as long as Tuomas is with them. If he leaves, it wont be Nightwish any more. Tarja has a beautiful classical voice; Anette has a beautiful traditional voice. Different voices, different ladies, different sounds. (And their new album is great!)

Just saw Nightwish on Metal Evolution on VH. Which album should I get first. They are $25-30 on Ebay, not cheap, but imports.

Welcome to the thread I agree hopefully, Tarja and Emppu will bury the hatchet and end their ridiculous feud so Nightwish can become Nightwish again.

I'm seeing Rammstein for the first time since '99 in April, should be a good show, hopefully they won't get banned from Massachusetts again like last time hahaha

I respectfully disagree without Tarja, Nightwish sounds like every other Female Fronted European Symphonic Metal band. IMHO Anette is just ok I can list about a dozen other female vocalists in that sub-genre that I prefer over her...

I bet you can find them cheaper on Amazon.

If you've never listened to Nightwish before I would start with "Oceanborn"(1998) or "Wishmaster" (2000). Many consider "Oceanborn" to be their masterpiece album but I personally enjoy "Wishmaster" just as much so for me it would be a toss up. As a side note "Wishmaster" has the song "FantasMic" on it which is a tribute to Disney animated movies so if you are looking for a Disney tie in go with "Wishmaster".

Also the 2001 live DVD "From Wishes To Eternity" is amazing

I LOVE Incubus and Tool. Maynard will be coming to my city on his tour with Puscifer and I'm completely stoked. :D

As already mentioned "oceanborn" is perhaps a good start, i also like "once" a lot even though its a bit less progressive and more commercial, well as commercial as you can get for a operatic metal band haha.

ive only heard the first album posts tarja but i got a solid meh and i dont think i listened to it more than twice. but it wasnt just the vocals, it was the whole thing

That is why I looked into this thread...was wondering if anyone else has been watching this? I have yet to see all the episodes but have tuned in when I can catch them. LOVED the prog metal episode too. Am proud of Yes, King Crimson, Gensis, who seemed to influence the newer bands, as I am a fan of the older prog bands (I know, I'm showing my age..which isn't 47 anymore! )

Yup, I've watched all the Metal Evolution episodes. They air on MuchMoreMusic up here in Canada and the final prog metal (my favourite metal hehe) was aired a few weeks ago here.

I assume that all you folks have watched his film, Metal: A Headbanger's Journey?
