    What are your hobbies?

    So. Apart from listening to Maiden, music and going to gigs. What are your hobbies? I've developed a fascination for watches and aquired a few the last 3 or so years. I Frequent a watch forum as well, although I mostly lurk since I'm not enough of a watch nerd to fit in really.

    Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown

    So, this is a 70's style hard Rock band from Nashville, founded in 2009, starring guitar prodigy Tyler Bryant on vocals and guitar, at the age of 17. They've started gathering a quite large following and have landed some high profile gigs, like supporting Guns n Roses on select dates. Fender...

    The Book of the Final Frontier

    I have been thinking lately about TFF and TBoS. I think both albums have some really good songs, and TBoS in particular flows well as an album, but many songs don't hold up on their own. While TFF is a bit more direct and TBoS is a little more showoff/artsy many tracks on respective albums could...

    Random Albums Duel

    Vote for the pair of albums you prefer (in the context of "you're on a deserted island yadayadayada"). The logic behind the options? There isn't one. Except there can't be two albums by one artist in each duet and I haven't selected any obscure titles.

    Know anyone who wants to be the next ukelele/didgeridoo star?

    I have shaker wizardry to give away too but that's not the hard part for me to find. The ukelele player has to be a person who can ukelele-the-shit out of almost anything and fit a lot of images. I'm hoping I can you here so that we can record an album on my phone and make gazillions. You might...

    Anybody up for a forum collaboration?

    I will handle production duties and could throw in some guitar and bass in lack other options.

    Van Halen (Roth era) vs Van Halen (Hagar era)

    Some consider the respective outfits to be too different for a just comparison to be made. I myself don't agree with that sentiment, because similarly, the same thing could be said about Judas Priest with Ripper, Maiden with Blaze and Black Sabbath with anybody but Ozzy.

    Inspired by "Favorite vocalists" - Favorite nutcases

    Ah yes, the endless world of weirdos. Who do you dig? Who tickles your craze? Is it the late Kim Jong Il? Maybe The Simpson character "Crazy Cat Lady", or perhaps George Lucas, who is in his own league of madness? Who are your top 5 weirdos?`If you decide to humor me and participate, please...

    Blackmore's tribute to Jon Lord

    I just found this. Beautiful song. Blackmore's sense of melody and flow is, close to unrivaled.

    The "post crappy live music performances" thread

    I'm going to start with two spectacular renditions by Meat Loaf. And, thirteen minutes of fail. My favorite part is around 6 minutes in, give or take a few seconds.

    Paul is on it again.

    Former Iron Maiden singer Paul Di'Anno lashed out at a fan for shouting Bruce Dickinson's name during an October 4 concert in Greece, calling the fan a "fa--ot" and dubbing current Maiden vocalist "Brucy baby." As Rock Overdose reports, Di'Anno's outburst occurred less than 15 minutes into the...

    Bands that fell from grace

    So. What bands/artists have turned from amazing to pathetic/sad? First thing that comes to mind is Queensryche (up until the recent comeback with La Torre), but surely there are others. Kiss perhaps? Def Leppard? Edit: Meat Loaf. His accomplishments since the mid 2000's have reached rock...

    Grand Design

    I've been starting to get into this band lately, from a neighbouring town. It's like a modern, better Def Leppard. Produced by the band brainchild (the singer, who's a fairly well known Metal producer). They are currently writing their third album.

    Hearing test The average ear hears between 20 hz - 20 000 hz (edit: In its prime), and declines with age and stress on the ears. By 65 you'll won't hear much above 10 khz. Mine's out just below 18 khz, around say 17.5 kHz. I can hear some...

    Testament covers Powerslave on their latest album

    I like it (and the CD as well) - Much better than FoTD with Chuck Billy on vocals from that 2005 all star tribute album or whatever. Had I known this I would've bought the extended CD rather than the standard edition. Edit: Herre's a video of guitarist Alex Skolnick tracking the song.
