Ray Van Horn, Jr. said...

Mark, can you believe Priest is doing their farewell tour this year? So it says, anyway. Feels weird. I know a lot of people aren't down with their last couple albums, but wow, it just seems strange. Also can't wait for my copy of Hellbound and the Bang Tango reissues to hit me from MM. Very excited!

Dpth, no Far From the Sun? Hee hee. I wonder why. I actually like it for what it is, but it really does stand out as an oddity, yes?

Fred, thanks for reminding me about Zappa...I'm overdue getting this Zappa DVD reviewed, crikey, where does the time go?

Okay, cjk, lay it on is the new Social D?

Headbang, I was informed by Relapse they are reissuing most of Death's catalog, so get ready. Sound of Perseverance is a grossly-overlook classic.

cjk_44 said...

Ray, the new Social D is pretty good. a few years and a wiser Mike Ness has allowed for less grit and more polish and better melodies. definitely catchy.

DPTH and Ray, I was very confused by Amorphis' "Far from the Sun" when it came out and ultimately decided i didn't like it. but i did listen to it recently and while it may still be the worst album in the catalog it wasn't nearly as bad as i remembered it.

DPTH International said...

Honestly, I haven't heard anything off of "Far From The Sun". But all the reviews were fairly negative so I just haven't really bothered giving it a chance. I love their early work with Tales ... being my favourite.

The last couple albums have brought back some of their former glory while retaining their more progressive approach which I don't mind.

I saw them Live last year and they kicked ass on all the songs, old and new.

I'll have to check "Far From The Sun" out simply out of curiousity and form my own opinion, but I'll probably not rush out and do it.

Metal Mark said...

All the Warlock re-issues have multiple bonus tracks which is great.

Ray Van Horn, Jr. said...

cjk, that's what I expected...I'm still more of the Mommy's Little Helper Social D....Mark, I only requested Hellbound since I have the other two, but bonus tracks do make the difference...I totally agree the first two Amorphis albums are their best, and Elegy too...they've done nice work recently as well, but yeah, you have to hear Far From the Sun just because it sticks out like a rash, though I think it's good enough for another band's album, kind of like Kreator during their industrial experimental phase

Ray Van Horn, Jr. said...

I should clarify that Kreator statement to mean that Amorphis went just as left-of-center as Kreator did...there's no industrial similarities

Fred said...

Ray, which Zappa DVD? Is it The Torture Never Stops? I just got that in the mail last week, but I haven't seen it yet.

Ray Van Horn, Jr. said...

that's the one, Fred...I'm just a bit behind on things
