Song: Voices in a Dream
Artist: Echoes of Eternity
Album: The Forgotten Goddess (2007)
Genre: Progressive / melodic groove metal
Comments: Ever wonder what you would get if you crossed the groovy punch of a band like latter-day Agent Steel or Lääz Rockit with the silvery soprano of a symphonic-gothic Europower band like Epica? Well, neither did I. (I love Agent Steel and Lääz Rockit, but absolutely loathe Epica.) But, allured by the odd combination and by the ear-candy of Francine Boucher's impressive set of pipes, I decided I'd give them a try in spite of the notedly mixed reaction the album got on Encyclopaedia Metallum. Highly intriguing mix, this - a real shame the band went into mothball last year...

One of my work buddies is a big Springsteen fan, and told me to check out "Darkness on the Edge of Town" Pretty good album. I felt the songs were darker than a lot of Springsteen stuff I'd heard before. Though, admittedly I'm not a huge Springsteen fan so I could be wrong about it being one of his "darker" albums.

After using my flat mates music for the last 3 years I've been slowly buying back all the albums that I lost access to after he went home :lol:

Anyway I finally got round to purchasing the Foo Fighters' greatest hits album.
Have a question about a book or academic article before you buy it? Maybe I have it!

:D

Halo of Blood was a very good album. All in all still not quite up to the high bar set by Follow the Reaper, though.

Artist: RUST
Album: Shoot Them Higher (1989)
Genre: Heavy metal

Yup I enjoyed it very much =D
To top Follow the Reaper would be tough, but they might have gotten back to it's league.

Have you by any chance listened to Broken Crown Halo by Lacuna Coil? not a bad album per se, it's just that remembering their old self makes me die a little inside.

Oh, absolutely. I meant no disrespect to Halo of Blood; it's amazing enough to me that they got out of that rut they got into starting with Hate Crew Deathroll.

Ohhhhh, no. I bought Shallow Life and have been regretting that decision ever since... :( I've still got a sentimental attachment to them for Comalies, though. The original 'Let It Go', damn. I still rock out to that whenever I blow up the LaCroix building in VtM:B!

If Broken Crown Halo isn't that bad, I'll have to check it out, though. Thanks!
