  1. Eagles for me in Buffalo in 03. Just wondering, when did Rush last tour?

    Well I saw them here in May-ish? And on their 30th anniversary tour 2 years before that at he same place (Tampa). Before that I saw the Counterparts tour in Orlando - not sure of the year - been a while. And the Grace Under Pressure tour 20something years ago.

    I think they tour pretty steady. I just read that they are gonna tour again in 2008 due to the success of the Snakes and Arrows tour.

  2. ^^^^^

    Damnit I forgot about Death on my list. Shit, how could I?

    _the sound of perserverance_ is the most well produced and possibly heaviest metal album recorded to date.

    Devin's Ziltoid album has grown on me a little, but for the most part I consider it one of his weakest releases. It would have been exponentinally better if he had used Gene Hoglan instead of programmed drums. As far as Devin's works go I'd say _Infinity_ is his best prog-metal record and _City_ (under the name Strapping Young Lad) is his best speed metal/industrial record.

    I am slowly getting into Devin's older solo stuff. Ziltoid has the funny (it's funny to me anyway) and it was the first solo DT I heard so I think I have a whole lotta awesome to discover yet.

    I think Chuck will forgive you since you did eventually remember (lol). I think I left out Pestilence and Terrorizer too - I hope Jesse will forgive me...

  3. It's alot more common than people think. Rappers don't even try to hide it..they just give their cd to the soundman and tell him to play it while they jump around and go "hhheeeeeyyyyy hooooooo" between smoking blunts

    Well, it may not be art but it doesn't sound like a bad way to make a living...

  4. I love christmas music but I prefer the Trans-Siberian Orchestra version of any christmas song if there is one.

    King Diamond's No Presents For Christmas is pretty fun too.

    And Charlotte Church's version of Oh Holy Night is one of the most moving things I've ever heard.

  5. I think they will, this tour's gonna be really big. Where are you from?

    Hahaha :lol:

    I live in Orlando, FL - I hope you are right. I can't imagine they plan a World tour with only 2 US dates.

    Plus I just found out that King Diamond has a herniated disc so his 2008 tour is cancelled which crushes me. I can't even describe how disappointed that makes me.

  6. I just saw them a few weeks ago on the Heaven And Hell tour. I was never that big a fan other than their 4 song debut ep but I have to say I was completely impressed by their set. Enough so that I am currently revisiting their back catalog to see what I missed. I am digging it (and kicking myself for not paying more attention before). Geoff Tate's voice is still incredible all these years later.

  7. Saw them in Tampa this tour and last tour and a few times before that. Probably my second favorite band after Zep. There just aren't enough superlatives to describe Rush so I'll just leave it at I love them. From beginning to end.

    Their album of covers, Feedback, was pretty hip too.

  8. I love death metal, a bit of black metal, tons of thrash metal and lots of grind, gore and goregrind and, of course, most old school heavy metal.

    Among my favorite bands are;

    Morbid Angel, Carcass, Napalm Death, Death, Deicide, Bathory, Atheist, Kreator, Exodus, Pungent Stench, Prong, Voivod, Nocturnus, Entombed, King Diamond (his 2008 USA tour has been cancelled and that hurts me way more than it probably should).

    Some other bands I either just now got around to loving or are newer: Mekong Delta, Orange Goblin, Anaal Nathrakh, Ackercocke, Autopsy, Wormed, Insect Warfare, Gorerotted, Death Breath, Necrophagist, Immortal (and Abbath's side project I), Dying Fetus, Nailshitter, Meshuggah, Aborted, Pig Destroyer, Devin Townsend (The Ziltoid album kills me - I don't know why it took me so long to stumble across Devy), Death By Dawn, Lock Up, and tons more...

    I like that y'all started a metal thread because when I'm not jamming to Led Zep, this is what I do. Zep was my first and favorite band but they led me to all these other kinds of music.

  9. The next Iron Maiden's gig, in March.

    I has a jealousy. I don't think they have announced anything in my part of the world yet. Hoping they do.

    I am looking forward to King Diamond in March and Exodus/Kreator early 2008 (I know they're coming - can't remember when)

    And I fully intend to see the Moody Blues in April - I expect that to be brilliant.

  10. Queensryche/Alice Cooper/Heaven and Hell or maybe Megadeth - I can't remember which was last.

    My first time to see Tony Iommi and it was everything I hoped it would be and more. Every time I tried to see Sabbath before something happened to ruin it but this time was the charm. Good sets from QR and AC too. That was also my first time to see MegaDave - and I must say I was well and truly impressed. He may have never achieved the popularity his old band did but he remained more true to his music and art.

  11. I said G'deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevenin'!

    Should I be freaked out that the very second my registration confirmation email came in the Battle of Nevermore came up in my winamp rotation?

    Or just synchronicity?

    I suppose it could be coincidence but I have almost 9000 songs on that playlist and only about 360 of them are Zep.

    Howdy y'all.
