I like the new Deep Purple better than Bananas. The band grooves more, and they can still rock like it's the 70's. Gillan can still sing like he's Jesus, Morse... well, he's a guitar god, Ian beats the shit out of the skins, Glover still thumps like the seasoned vet that he his, and Airey has found his space within the band.

two thumbs up.. buy it

Angel Rat, how did you get Mars Volta and Riverside? They don't get released till Nov 8th!!! You must know special people... ya lucky bastard. I did get a cdr of the Riverside and fuckin love it.
Hows the Seiges Even?[/QB]

Hah! Seems like us Europeans always get stuph earlier. Didn't know myself that The Mars Volta was available yet. Just stumbled upon it at my local record store. The Riverside album was released here one week ago. Damn good this one!

Sieges Even...
Need to listen to this one more. It's quite complex. Fates Warning fans will love this, although it's not quite the same...

Yes, it does have MTV on it, but I haven't had time to listen to it yet. I got home before that track came on, and haven't had time to play the cd again, since I have the Testament dvd (crushing) and Rush Chronicles dvd (what memories this brings back... did those guys go thru some major fashion changes or what).

I also picked up a cd today of the live Testament . It's great to see and hear the old band all together again on stage... they fuckin kill!!!!

I'll have to check out the Seige's Even (thanks Angel Rat). BTW Fates Warning live dvd comes out this tuesday (at least it's suppose to over here) I'll be getting that for sure. I hope the quality is better than the FW live at the Dynamo which sucked shit

Well, I was hoping to pick up a bunch of new releases today but it seems many of them got pushed back a week or two from what I originallt read.

Anyway, I picked up Mars Volta - Scab Dates even though I was going to scratch this off my list. Their official site has the new cd streaming and I liked what I heard. I wasn't really impressed with Francis the Mute, but this live cd isn't too bad.

Since I had a coupon for buy one used cd or dvd and get the next one free, you know I couldn't leave without using that!!! So I picked up 2 dvds Saving Private Ryan and X-Men 1.5... the visual and audio assault alone was worth getting these. The X-Men 1.5 has a second dvd crammed with extra and Savung Private Ryan is worth it just for in incerdible opening scene.

I stopped at another store before coming home and grabbed Stream Of Passion special edition cd/dvd... thanks for informing me about them Mez. Not to bad at all.

DVD Paul McCartney and Wings "Rockshow" (i've been wanting to see this concert film for decades but it was never released by sir paul... this is a boot dvd but it's damn good. a little dark in places and the audio is low, but a very enjoyable performance and vg+ quality. Hopefully Paul will one day release this properly with better picture quality, menues, surround sound, extras, etc... but until then I'll be enjoying this)

IMMORTAL - Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism;
JUDAS PRIEST - Angel Of Retribution;
STRAY CATS - Rumble in Brixton DVD (super cool);

and my beloved one gave me as a birthday gift:

AC/DC - Family Jewels

All I can say about it is, if any of you didn't yet, BUY IT. Steal the local bank, sell your mom, sell your body, but I'm quite sure everyone here NEEDS this DVD.

Was it clear?

Armored Saint -Symbol of Salvation 3CD reissue thingy
Mercyful Fate - Melissa (Roadrunner 25 Year reissue) It's cool that they included the old show, but three songs?
King Diamond - Abigail (Roadrunner 25 year deal) Again, cool to have a dvd but why waste it with so few songs. And why didn't they reissue Fatal Portrait?

Totally agreed. Some songs are far better than others, of course, but the album as a whole is great, no weak songs.

Almost forgot. Got:

ROLLING STONES - A Bigger Bang.

I'm surprised. I would never think they would release such a tremendous album in 2005. It often reminds me (no kidding) of Exile On Main St. That's saying a lot in my book. Highly recommended.

RUSH - R30 dvd/cd set (getting ready to watch this after I'm done here )

RUSH - Power Windows remastered (the only other one I needed that BMG didn't have... now I can replce all my original Rush cds)

Porcupine Tree - Stars Die digipac version (I of course have the original box set of this one but needed this version for my completist obsession with PT)

WAR OF THE WORLDS - dvd (just finished watching this, and it was visually and sonicly amazing. my floors and wall were vibrating the whole with the dts surround cranked. kick ass movie, although the ending was too fast)

thanks for the fix Hex. There were a few threads here that once they got a certain amount pages they became stretched out and a pain to deal with but I'm not one to bitch much. This is way better.

The album is better than their last three ones, sure. It got some real nice tunes: "Laugh, I nearly died" and the second track (don't know the name at the moment). But there are many stinkers too. "Streets of Love" for example is one of their most terrible songs ever. The poppy bass play of Jones is often a pain in the ass.

Don't want to be to negative. I'm happy they did something more Rock than the last albums, but you know, when I think of their great works of the past. The last album, that I really loved and still do is "Tattoo You". All works after that have more filler than killer for me.

My two cents.

Stephen O'Malley is my personal lord and saviour. Seriously, the guy is a phenomenal artist and musician. Visit his website, Ideologic.org, regularly.

I don't know, I can't explain why I like it (can anyone actually quantify their personal tastes?), there's just something about a wall of ambient drone when I'm in a certain mood. There aren't many bands that can really tap right into the pulse of that thing called "atmosphere", but Sunn O))) are one of them. It's enthralling. I'd love to see them live, actually.

Yes, I have the new Akercocke, and I like it very much. A lot proggier than the last one, but at the same time tighter and far more mature. I miss the big, epic songs like "Praise the Name of Satan" (first few minutes of that song is awe-inspiring), but they've cut out a lot of the guff and filler from their sound. I likey.

Symbyosis - On the wings of Phoenix [2CD]

They had a hard time releasing this album, self produced, financed with the pre-orders... but here it is, finally!
The bonus CD is nice gift, interesting covers of Iron Maiden (The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner) and Pestilence (Twisted Truth)...
Tech death metal with progressive influences.

> www.symbyosis.com


Cathedral - The VIIth Coming
Hate Eternal - King of All Kings
Napalm Death - Fear, Emptiness, Despair


hex: thanks for fixing it! I was on the verge of complaining

I didn't get myself any new music recently but I bought a Leslie 147 speaker for my Hammond last week. Had to tweak one of the motors a bit and now the Baby-B sounds fuller and louder than ever
