    Fates Warning + Arch / Matheos

    The new Arch/Matheos album is out and damn is it a stunner! It's a lot to take in too, but so far my favorite tracks are probably Pitch Black Prism and Kindred Spirits.

    Iced Earth

    I'm moving to Okinawa, Japan pretty soon, so it'll probably be awhile before I get to see any of the bands I really like live again.

    The Angel and the Gambler

    God, I love you right now, man. I wrote these comments over at DTF about my thoughts on The Angel and the Gambler... This is far and away Iron Maiden's worst song. 1/10, easily.

    Yeah, Ghost killed it live when they opened for Maiden at the show I went to last week.

    The Official Book of Souls Tour 2017 Thread (Warning: Spoilers Within)

    I won't be at the show tonight, but I'll be going to the show on Friday! Looking forward to seeing the band live again! :nana:

    Iced Earth

    I just made a Witherfall thread, but I really wanted to pop in here and throw in my support for Jake Dreyer. Dude's by far and away the best lead guitarist Iced Earth's ever had. I highly recommend Iced Earth fans checking Witherfall out, especially if they're fans of early IE albums like Night...
  7. Chained Prometheus


    This album is far and away my favorite album of 2017 so far. One of the best debut albums I've heard in quite awhile. I know that @Night Prowler posted the album link in the Iced Earth thread awhile back, as Witherfall's guitarist is the new lead guitarist in Iced Earth. Personally, while I...

    Fates Warning + Arch / Matheos

    Well, first off, I'd ask you what other albums you've heard by Fates Warning? Because while I adore A Pleasant Shade of Grey and am in agreement with many other fans that it's one of their top efforts, it's very important to recognize that Fates Warning is a band that has gone through a lot of...

    Awww yes! :shred:

    Fates Warning + Arch / Matheos

    First song off the album released! Sounds fantastic! Ray hasn't sounded this great in ages!

    "The Book of Souls" - Official pre-release thread (CONTAINS ALBUM SPOILERS)

    It's a divisive song. Personally, I think it's easily the weakest song on the album and Steve's worst epic in at least a decade. However, as shown by the adoration in other posts, your mileage may vary.

    The Red And The Black

    That's fine. Ultimately, I think TRatB and Empire are going to be the two divisive songs off the album. A lot of fans of TRatB don't seem to be as keen for Empire, while a lot of fans of Empire don't seem fond of TRatB either. Then there's others like Travis, who think that both songs are...

    The Red And The Black

    I don't mind atypical songwriting. In fact, atypical song structures are very common in prog rock/metal. TRatB could have been a superb prog metal song, I think, had Steve taken more time to work out the kinks. It just feels like he came up with a very basic first draft of that potential song...

    The Red And The Black

    I'm not surprised at all; the thing is that this song has a ton of great ideas. There's a lot of great riffs in the song. The source of the division is how Steve executed the song as a whole. To some, it's sheer perfection. To others, such as myself, it feels rushed and very unsorted. I think...
