If you have 36 favorite albums for September, how many did you listen to in total…?
I have no listened any kind of music in the summer. Just Senjutsu every Friday.
So I have to compensate 2 months from mid June to mid August and listen more than 1 album / day to complete my 365 albums challenge at the end of the year.

Btw I think the new White Spirit album will like you. Highly recommended.

Chez Kane - "Children of Tomorrow Gone" off her new album Powerzone, out last Friday.

Written, produced, engineered and performed by Crazy Lixx-vocalist/bandleader Danny with Chez on vocals.

Possibly my favourite song of 2022. I'm totally down for retro 80's music and Chez Kane really fills that void. Cheesy? Sure. But is it good? Well, it could easily have been a smash hit back in the late 80's, and whether that's good or bad is up to you.

My October favorites albums:


  • Moonspell - From Down Below- Live 80 meters Deep ( Live) (Metal)
This is a phenomenal live release from a phenomenal studio album. I got the deluxe blu-ray/book edition and the clear vinyl, and the sound and picture quality on both is amazing.

Edit: I've been listening to Moonspell since Wolfheart was their only album, and they're easily my favorite band behind Maiden. I don't believe they have a single weak album.

I absolutely agree. Both are fantastic albums. It has been a great idea to get those songs in a live album. They sound so tight. One favorites of the year , no doubt.
