<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I was a bit disappointed about that. There isn't many :headbang: -songs. But the songs that are there, are excellent, like Hail And Kill and Kings Of Metal :headbang:

Anyway, I ordered a few cd's last weekend and they should arrive tomorrow.

Dio - Sacred Heart
Dio - Last In Line
Manowar - Fighting the World :D
Elvenking - WYRD (they just e-mailed me that getting this cd will take more time :wall: )

I should be getting the new Catharsis album "Dea" in tomorrow. One of the greatest Russian metal bands i've ever heard.

And also Elwing "Immortal Stories".

Plus a ton of 60's/70's prog rock that maybe nobody here cares about but i love dearly (stuff like Camel, Atomic Rooster, Rick Wakeman, etc...)

Where in the hell have you been able to find a Catharsis album? :o I have Follow The SUn on mp3 but I can't find it anywhere! And yes, they're great! Another russian band I like is Nefelim, very good too.

Running WIld - Blazon Stone
Astarte - Sirens
Grand Alchemist - Intervening Coma-Celebration (it was hard to find)

I've also got "Imago" by Catharsis and it is totally freakin' awesome. There is this female pianist in the band that plays this symphonic solo track that is really about the best piano solo i've heard in my entire life. I really hope that their new one is held to the same standards. I ordered it from http://www.sentinelsteel.com. my favorite place to shop online. Denis just put a new little Russian section to his recent update with some other bands that i need to check out next time.

An no doubt that Nefelim is also incredible. I love those dreamy keyboard passages and epic vocals. Plus, the story/myth of the Nefelim in pre-history is quite empowering!

I think that Russia is going to be a major player in the metal scene over the next few years. they've always sort of been there, but they've never been a real leader until recently. also check out good stuff from Arda and the never-dying band Aria....

If anyone knows of any other essential Russian bands that i may be missing out on, please let me know!

I love the late 60s and 70s Progressive Rock stuff although I never got much into the underground stuff. I suppose I should look beyond the likes of Genesis and Camel ... Do you like any newer Progressive Rock bands? My all-time favorite band of the genre, Anglagard, is from the 90's and they're just absolute perfection in my book. Check them out if you haven't already! :)

I really haven't heard too many newer prog bands that i've liked. Most of them seem to just break musical rules for the hell of it, without much devotion to aesthetics and song structure. And sometimes they go off into too much blues and jazz for my tastes.

But then again, i've never heard Anglagard, so i may just have heard the wrong stuff at the wrong times.

Any chance you could put together a small list of your favorite contemporary prog rock bands so that i can check them out? I'm always looking for something new and exciting.

Thanks,
Jon Z.

Anglagard ... Website
... quite amazing! I really can't find any words for this group ... I love 'em.

The Flower Kings ... Website
... much better than people may think!

Glass Hammer ... Website
... from the USA and sing about Tolkien and Fantasy! Doh! :D

Present ... Website
... not too new but quite overlooked! Pretty dark like Anglagard.

Spock's Beard ... Website
... pretty popular but also pretty good! Probably my least favorite of the ones listened but definitely still worth mentioning!

I hope that helps you out a bit Universe! :) If you check any of the bands out definitely let me know your thoughts on them, thanks!

"just arrived"...

it seems that everyone's music "arrives" to their house. what a sad world it is when all of the best of everything is so removed from the mainstream channels. i remember the days when record stores actually STOCKED good metal!

now we all live by mail-order.........

but i still envision a day when the local 12-year-old asks for Rhapsody for Christmas, and not some stinky rap-metal band...

sigh,

Can't agree completely with ya about mailorder. It's just this once, because they were cheap. ;) I do buy my music @ a metalstore, i.e. Music Mania in Kortrijk, Belgium. One of the best in Belgium. :D

About the rap-metal... I'm with ya :D

i forgot to think about how different europe is than america. here in the states, there ISN'T a metal store. it's all mail order. you might be able to find some stuff at your local indie record shop, but most often, they just stock death and black metal. at least that's been my experience throughout this country...

sometimes i wish i lived in europe.

i understand and i agree your message, but not Completly. like Tech said, i buy my stuff at the usual Metalstore, but in some countrys there arent that many (like in Portugal) so i understand if someone doesnt want to travel a lot to buy good metal. Shops like the Supermarket only sell MTV´s best "Metal" bands.


anyway i didnt order it, my Father passed by a MetalStore when he left work and brought me the CD

This is definitely accurate. I am too from the USA and have this same frustration. The only Power Metal you can find is Power Metal either signed or distributed by Century Media or Nuclear Blast (at least for me). Most Power Metal I like I end up ordering off of the internet.

holy cow! these bands are great.

i especially liked Anglagard.

"glass hammer" is a really great band name with equally great music!

Present is rather hard to follow. I'd have to be in a mood for something so challenging. thankfully, those moods aren't too rare...so i like 'em!

Not too crazy about The Flower Kings...seems a little too jazzy for me, but still cool. Spock's Beard is also cool...some talented players there, but just not as interesting to me.

i've added Anglagard, Glass Hammer, and Present to my "to buy" list for next payday. thanks a zillion for the suggestions. i really appreciate it.

take care,
jon z.
