    Songs You Are Currently Addicted To!

    Usually, I'm not a big fan of instrumentals, but I really like this one:

    Songs You Are Currently Addicted To!

    What got me interested in Lovebites was their song "M.D.O." which was included on a CD which came along with the German Rock Hard magazine a few months ago. (Something which happens about once in every 5-10 years.) I don't consider myself a power metal fan, but two reasons why I really do like this album - it was one of only four new metal releases I bought last year - might be that the music is heading in the direction of "Oceanborn" (which is still - by far - my favourite Nightwish album) and the guitar solos more than once remind me, at least to a certain extent, of the first two Helloween releases. I just wish the guitars sounded still a bit crunchier/rawer - as they did on this song from their first album (which I haven't got yet) or on the following song (close to entering thrash metal territory) from their "Battle Against Damnation"-EP:

    Movie Recommendation Thread

    The Finnish movie "Heavy Trip" is one of the funniest I've seen in while. Here's the trailer: The best/funniest scenes - maybe with the exception of the one about getting a special promo pic - are not included in the trailer, though. (Often it's the other way round.)

    Der musikalische Jahresrückblick 2018

    Top Alben 2018 1. Midnattsol - The Aftermath 2. Gåte - Svevn 3. Madder Mortem - Marrow 4. Qntal - Nachtblume 5. Lovebites - Clockwork Immortality 6. The Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices feat. Lisa Gerrard - BooCheeMish 7. Voivod - The Wake Die Abstände zwischen den ersten drei Alben sind so minimal, daß ich sie eigentlich auch alle auf den 1. Platz hätte setzen können. Lieblingssongs des Jahres Midnattsol - Syns sang Gåte - Svevn The Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices feat. Lisa Gerrard - Mani Yanni Schlimmste(r) Song(s) des Jahres Kann ich nicht beurteilen. Ich höre mir nur Platten an, die mir gefallen, und im Radio höre ich keine Musik. Neuentdeckungen Lovebites (etwas ärgerlich, daß ich auf die erst wenige Tage nach ihrem Konzert in der Zeche Carl in Essen aufmerksam geworden bin) Bestes Konzert The Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices feat. Lisa Gerrard in Bochum sowie alle Konzerte von Kari Bremnes, die ich besucht habe Darauf freue ich mich 2019 - (hoffentlich endlich ein) neues Album der Stolen Babies - Deutschlandtour von Kari Bremnes

    I hardly ever listen to her nowadays, but I liked her live performances always better than the studio albums. A fine example of what you just said is this live version of "Father Lucifer" with excerpts of "Tubular Bells" and "Smalltown Boy" from 1996: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHYOWLy9IFw She must have played this version more than once on that tour, because it's also to be found on the "Saint and Sinner"-CD (an unofficial release) which was (mostly) recorded at her concert in Berlin in March 1996 (and which became my most-played Tori Amos-CD). An recommendable official release with the same "line-up" - she was just accompanied by Steve Caton on guitar on that tour - is the live videocassette "Live From NY" from 1997, which I like much better than the live-DVD "Welcome to Sunny Florida" which was released 7 years later.

    The title track og Gåte's new album: Here are another two interesting versions, the first one sung in Sami by Mari Boine and the second one with some parts being sung in Arabian by the late Palestinian singer Rim Banna:

    Decades World Tour 2018

    The concert in Oberhausen was great and I also enjoyed it more than the one three years ago, due to the selection of the songs, because this time I got to hear "10th Man Down", a few songs from "Oceanborn" (my overall favourite and by far most-played Nightwish-album) - my only complaint is that "The Pharaoh Sails to Orion" was not included - and my favourite song from the debut album: "Elvenpath". Thinking about it, I would have liked to see the last two songs being replaced by the rest of the songs from "Oceanborn". I mean, after all it's the 20th anniversary this year. Well, maybe there's some hope for the 25th anniversary in 2023. Even if the name of my camera suggests otherwise, it also allows to take some "hot" pix:

    I'm not a fan of Rihanna's music and the original version of this song does nothing for me, but this Country-Surf-Metal version of "Diamonds" is absolutely brilliant: I like it even a bit better with the speed turned up to 1.25. If there was an entire album in this vein, I'd buy it immediately.
