    Songs You Are Currently Addicted To!

    I'm rediscovering Rush these days and can't get out of my head this song.
  3. To be fair @hunebedbouwer I didn't really know where to post it. Just felt the need to - the guy deserved one In Memorium post. He was great inspiration of everyone who had met him, or just listened to him talking for a project, for his travels or because he made his illness look totally unimportant for what he was doing - climbing eigh-thounsanders with a disease which easily can kill you if you fell in hypoglycemic shock. A fighter that never actually gave up. P.S. The song in the link connects with the context - "Prituri se Planinata" literally translates as "The Mountain Crumbled"

    Hear what Maestro Michael Romeo has to offer as a glimpse of his solo album

    Amorphis

    I still can't decide what else to write, except they've outdone themselves... again Absolutely majestic album!
  6. In Memorium of Boyan Petrov Many would ask "Who the heck is this guy and why is he important?" and I can't blame you Well, Boyan Petrov was zoologist, ecologist speleologist and mountaineer. Member of Eurobats. He was activist for several eco-organizations here. Also he climbed 10 of the 14 eigh-thounsanders - alone and without oxygen. He was reported missing during his attempt to climb Shishapangma around 3th May this year. "So what?" many would ask again. "He was mountaineer and he knew the risks, what makes him so special after all?" The answer is - he was remarkable man. Boyan beat up cancer 18 years ago... to get diabetes during the process. However this hadn't stopped him to become one of the most successful mountaineers this country ever had. He survived several injuries during his climbings including falling in a glacial crevasse... In 2013 he was hit by a car... and in 2014 he climbed K2. Not only that, in 2014 he became the first person to climb two eight-thousanders in 8 days. He was the living proof nothing is impossible and now he's one with the Mountain. Rest in peace, Boyan!

    Songs You Are Currently Addicted To!

    These days I'm obsessed with Megadeth and mostly with this song

    Kamelot

    Agree. Now if only Kamelot stop releasing the same boring album over and over again and stop writing music that requires Tommy to sound like late Roy, it will be great.

    ReVamp

    I'm listening Wild Card (album) after one year break. It is strange how five years after its release this album still sounds fresh and hadn't lost a tiny bit of its punch, while the new albums of more glorified bands sound generic at their best (yup, Nightwish included) And I can't help but love Floor's ability to write such personal lyrics, yet anyone can relate to them. Really, in current days only Daniel Gildenlow beats her in this aspect. Too bad this talent would never be used in Nightwish.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Then you have long road ahead, my friend. No one comes close to Floor during her After Forever times and EFMB does not show even 30% of what she can do, although she sounds good. Just... she's Floor freakin' Jansen and EFMB, except The Greatest Show on Earth, doesn't give her much opportunities to let it loose the way she can and is known for. That being said the album is far better than Once and DPP (both NW albums I loathe except few songs)

    Blind Guardian

    As a massive BG fan I'd recommend every their album, but this is a matter of preference. Just to summarize: their first 3 albums lean towards speed metal, then follows the holy trinity of their power metal phase: Somewhere far Beyond - Imaginations from the Other Side - Nightfall in Middle-Earth, then coming the prog experimental phase of A Night at the Opera and A Twist in a Myth, and last two albums being sympho-power. (with Beyond the Red Mirror having some of the best orchestrations to appear in metal album after Therion's Lemuria/Sirius B) Anyway, at first try Imaginations from the Other Side (a milestone in their discography.. actually in the whole power-metal scene), the mentioned above SFB and ANATO, of course if you don't mind interludes - Nightfall in Middle-Earth. Just a glimpse of what you can expect: Ahem, I'll stop here before posting their entire discography

    Seventh Wonder

    It's like mixture between Waiting in the Wings and The Great Escape. Me likes! Plus you can't make second album like Mercy Falls.
