  1. If you enjoy the more progressive sound of "Beyond the Red Mirror", I would highly suggest listening to "A Night at the Opera" next. "And Then There Was Silence" is one of their best songs! If you're wanting more straight forward power metal, "Somewhere Far Beyond" is fantastic!
  2. Well, I think anyone could enjoy Ghost - just treat the subject matter the way you'd treat a horror film and you're all set. That, and as you said, they've got a sense of humor about themselves. It's obviously all just for fun, they aren't seriously Satanists. I think the protesters were mainly against the pride parade that was happening, anyway. I just found it funny that two things hardcore Evangelicals hate happened to be hanging out downtown that day - people that listen to "devil music" and people that aren't straight.
  3. Ghost's music is a lot of fun. I get the same feeling from their albums that I do old, campy horror movies from the 70s, like "The Devil's Rain". That certainly isn't a bad thing, as far as I'm concerned! I saw them back in 2015 at a sold out show (I could barely move), the same day a pride parade was happening. There was certainly an interesting mix of people that day! I wonder how the few evangelical protesters I saw felt, seeing a bunch of metalheads waiting in line for Ghost as well as a bunch of people wearing rainbow gear. Anyway, they put on an excellent show - one of the best shows I saw that year, in fact. My favorite album of theirs is still the first one, "Opus Eponymous". Not a single bad track on there!
  4. For me, it was kind of the opposite. I remember finding the first Revamp album to be underwhelming, aside from a few songs (like "Disdain" and "Kill Me With Silence", which I've always liked). When "Wild Card" came out, I was immediately impressed! Then I started enjoying the first album more. I pretty much went to that Iced Earth/Sabaton/Revamp tour mainly for them (though I enjoy every band on that bill). I'm now glad I did since it seems I won't get another opportunity to see them, which kinda sucks.
  5. This song is really good! Tommy sounds incredible, as always, and the musicianship is of course top notch. I wish Kamelot would take more advantage of Tommy's range, as much as I've personally enjoyed the last 3 albums.
  6. My preorder came in a day early! After listening to it, I've come to the following conclusions: - The singles and "Static" are the worst songs on the album. I'm unsure how I feel about "In Twilight Hours" - I like Jennifer's voice better here than in Beyond the Black, but it's not their best ballad. - I feel as though this is the Tommy era's "Poetry for the Poisoned", since this is a step up in heaviness compared to the two albums before it. Some of it is indeed 'generic' Kamelot (especially "Phantom Divine"), but I can't really picture, say, "Amnesiac" being on any of the other albums (except for maybe PFTP). They do go out of their way to be a little different on some songs, even if the singles would lead you to believe otherwise. - Tommy sounds more and more like himself with every passing album, though he's still got some similarities to Khan. I think they just naturally share some similarities, though. I will say that I also miss Khan's lyricism, "The Black Halo" and "Epica" have so much depth to them lyrically. Tommy's not bad, but Khan was certainly better in that department. From a pure singing standpoint though, they're about as good as each other!
  7. I think I've played this one like 6 times in a row now.
  8. Theocracy - As the World Bleeds Theocracy - Ghost Ship Pennywise - Never Gonna Die (pre-order)
  9. I can certainly understand why Dani's vocals would be difficult to get through, considering all the high pitched screeching. COF were actually my first extreme metal band though, so I've got a big soft spot for them. They opened me up to death & black metal! But yes, back on topic now. I like "Council of Wolves and Snakes" a lot more than "Interdimensional Summit"! It has a lot more atmosphere to it, and it's got more creativity to it. Different for them but in a good way!
  10. I like the song, but I also feel like Lauren Hart kind of added nothing to it. Her part isn't quite as integral as, say, Simone's in "The Haunting" or Elize & Alissa's in "Sacrimony". I can't imagine those two songs without their respective guest vocalists, where as it's easy to imagine this one without Lauren.
  11. Wacken uploaded this whole set. It's pretty awesome! It really makes me miss Liv. I hope the next Midnattsol album is good (along with her next solo album)!
  12. I certainly don't have a problem with it being "Nightwish-y", for obvious reason. My issue with this song would be that it comes off as bland and uninspired. I'll be giving the rest of the album a chance of course, but this song does absolutely nothing for me. Cradle of Filth continue to be my favorite untrve, not-kvlt band.
  13. "The Unforgiving" is as close to perfect as WT have ever gotten, imo. I like "Hydra" though - even if the last thing I want to hear when putting this band on is XZIBIT.
  14. First of all, WINTER WHITE and not SUMMER WHITE? Second, the song is pretty good. First 2/3rds of it are essentially what I expect out of a Kamelot single at this point in their career, though I wasn't expecting it to speed up at the end like it did. I can tell from the samples I'll probably like other songs better ("Vespertine" sounds so good!), but I still enjoy this quite a bit!
  15. Just picked these up today! Tribulation - Down Below Stratovarius - Eternal Thrice - Identity Crisis
