RE: Who listens to heavy music?

Saw Vader many years ago in Nottingham - a fairly extreme night of music. Napalm Death too when they performed at a pub in Derby. Much as I love extreme metal I couldn't go to too many gigs as it would just destroy my hearing.

Wow that`s a lot of DIO cds! Almost bought the fairly recent double disc editions of his studio albums but struggling to jusfify the purchases. I assume you have them? I`m especially interested in Holy Diver, The Last In Line and Sacred Heart. What do you think of the remastering and bonus tracks?

 

Holy Diver extended is just interviews, so I wouldn't go for that one. The Deluxe version has the King Biscuit live show and is worth the extra. The Last In Line is the pick of the bunch, as disc 2 is mainly Live From Pinkpop 1984, which is not available elsewhere. Sacred Heart disc 2 is basically Intermission plus a couple of live B-sides. If you have Intermission, then it may be a waste of money. Of course, if you can pick them up for a bargain price, that changes it..

Cheers.

I love Ghost! Got both albums on vinyl and the first one on cd also. Funny you should mention them because the band who toured with them, The Oath, their debut album arrived today on vinyl from Rise Above Records along with the debut album from Purson (but from a different seller). My favourites from this genre are The Devils Blood who sadly split up. I also like Blood Ceremony (new single on pre-order vinyl), Jess and the Ancient Ones, Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats (great name for a band!) and Electric Wizard. Another band more or less within this genre is Pagan Altar who are great. Listen to first track on their `Lords Of Hypocrisy` album which is a real cracker and one of my very favourite intros of all time. Actually come to think of it I heard The Oath have split already but I haven`t seen concrete confirmation.

Favourite ghost song is `Ritual`. Never get bored of this track!

I have never heard a Ghost album before. My girlfriend is going to see them live in New York with her father this Saturday. I will not be going with her because I live in England and I'm not due to go to America untill August. I should buy a Ghost album because I would probably love them. Which album do you recommend? I love Electric Wizard. Dopethrone is my favorite album by Electric Wizard.

Sony 808 ES Amplifer, PSB imagine B bookshelf speakers, Pro-ject debut carbon turntable, Audiolab 8200 CD player, Pioneer N-50 streamer, Revox B77 1/2 reel to reel player, Sennheiser Momentun headphones and some Atlas cables.

RE: Who listens to heavy music?

I've heard bits and pieces of Ghost before, but it's the first time I've really sat down and listened properly. 

Ive just listened to their first album Opus Eponymous, which might be even better. Both albums are very good. 

 

On a spotify recommendation I've just started listening to Blutengel - Monument. Sort of heavy electronic.  The track You Walk Away definitely has some Mortiis about it. 

In parts a heavy version of 2 Unlimited Smile

Oh definately the first album. Second one is good but the first is stronger. I do need to spend a bit more time with the second one to be fair. When the first album came out it was released in several different coloured vinyls and someone sold a complete set on ebay for £1,500! I`ve only got the one colour and won`t be selling it anytime soon! The song `Ritual` is one of those rare ones that I can play any amount of times and not get bored of. The outro guitar solo is great! My vinyl copy of `Dopethrone` is a treasured possession. You may already be aware but to get all the best vinyl editions of these type of bands you have to keep a regular eye on the Rise Above Records website.

P.S. Jealous of your girlfriend! Hope she enjoys the gig.

I will pick up the first album first then. I love Rise Above recoreds, they are one of my favorite record labels along with Southern records. I love the band Cathedral (Rise Above records was started by their lead singer Lee Dorrian if you did not know).

Great stuff Chris, you must be pretty chuffed with how that sounds!

Heard a lot of very technical metal recently where they just seem to have forgotten to write any actual riffs, so nice to hear you guys haven't neglected anything on that front!

Indeed, and Napalm Death but I much prefer Cathedral. Always give `Witchfinder General` a blast or three every Halloween! Great riff on that track.

Talking of  Rise Above Records my new Blood Ceremony 7" arrived this morning.   Smile

RE: Who listens to heavy music?

Been listening to this a lot over the last couple days, it's really excellent. Kind of exactly what I want from metal - riffs, solos (not too many), shit heavy drumming and mental vocals. 

And recorded beautifully too.

How come you guys aren't huge, or is that the plan?

Do you recreate this tightness live? Ever play out Bristol way?

So many questions!

The one thing we get told above all others is how tight we are when playing live..... You might hate the songs, but we play them well!  Smile

We'd love to be huge, but like 99% of hard-working musicians, we'd settle for being able to do it full-time without ending up on the street. We're all in our mid-to-late '30s, so family and work commitments mean we don't gig as often as we'd like, usually less than 10 gigs per year.... We focus on quality rather than quantity!

Being London/ Home Counties based, we tend to stay local, but we did play Newport last year, so never say never. If we could arrange a support slot for a good band in Bristol, we'd take it.

I'm glad you like it. We work hard at keeping the melody in metal. It'd be easy to go out there and for the guys to just chug away on the bottom string for hours on end, but there are so many amateur bands doing that stuff and it just gets boring to listen to after 2 or 3 songs..... Having said that, our latest batch of new songs has tended to 'up the pace' a tad. Wink
