I know Portrait since before they released their first album which was quite a disapointment with those vocals, still have that LP lying around, I really need to make a clean up on the shelve with stuff I want to get rid off since my last moving was rather heavy on the ammount of stuff I had to move with me, and I definitely have a bunch of Vinyl and CDs ready to go, the first Portrait being one of them. But to my ears they just needed to change their vocals and they effectively did so with the following EP, since then they have been a consistent band, nothing new but not bad wither. Catched them up live some months ago ina local Fest, prety good band live along with most of this new swedish wave metal bands, very energetic on stage and a feadt to the eye, very entertaining as well.

Last weekend a friend was recommended me the last In Solitude album, one that I haven't really given an opportunitty yet, the conversation was around young bands that are bringing new blood to metal without sounding non metal,.

In Portugal we don't really have a lot of concerts, MAjor tours go to spain and then go back to europe. Therefore we have to travel to other contries to catch up on some good Festivals and Germany is the place to see Metal in these times. Ever since i moved to Switzerland 4 years ago, i've been blessed with great concerts and Festivals to make up with all those years of week attendance and I sure have not le the chance go by unnatended. :)

Maiden on the Golden circle must have been cool. The fact that suchg a thin as a golden circlke exists in gigs still freacks me out though. It all sounds so money grabbing to me, almost turns me off to the band and music. But with Maiden is freacking hard toi be turned off by their music. I saw them a couple mof years ago and despite it was a big place and i was quite far away i still managed to enjoythe show a big deal, something that doesn't happen to me in big spaces, Maiden are a magical band live, totally not overrated. Saw Priest this year too, for the first time ever, still already without Downing, still great show, Halford's vocals still managed to impress me, I remember him being in a bad state back in early 00's, but seems like no more.

I do remember Cauldron Born, there's too much going on and the overall sound didn't really please me. But as for Enchanter! Wow! Didn't know them (I think), and that sound is so greatl, there are no vocalists gifted like this guy anymore in the scene.
Just makes me think of so many gorgeous PM bands that never went pas tthe Demo EP stage. Thankfully some labels have been picking this stuff up, like Stormspell and a bunch of greek labels like the one that got out Enchanter.
Damn, I'll try to track down the compilation CD now. :)


Also, I've finally gotten into the Masaaki Yuasa Ping Pong The animation series and i can say that is definitelly a great modern series. Yuasa series are always something to keep an eye on for me.

I don't keep up with much either the past few years. I've heard some retro styled bands that sound cool but after listening to the album once or twice, I'll forget about them haha. I think Sweden puts out some goods though, have you heard Portrait? Crimen Laesae Majestatis Divinae is freaking awesome. Crazy screaming stuff.

Arch's still got it! Do you like Enchanter Defenders of the Realm, and Cauldron Born? I think those are comparable to Arch Fates Warning, excellent complex US power metal.

Yeah seeing Manowar live would be amazing. I hear they really tear it up and have multiple drum sets and such sometimes haha.

Sadly I don't go to gigs or anything. I'm in Kansas which is smack dab in the middle of the States, nobody comes out here haha. I remember my friends and I had tickets for Blind Guardian once but they cancelled. I saw Dream Theater several years ago which was cool, not a huge fan anymore though. BUT I did see Iron Maiden with premium first class seating a few years ago, with Megadeth opening. That was a concert I'll never forget for sure. Every single song had crazy Eddie props, fireballs, and shit going on, and Bruce was running around like a maniac, for them being in their 50's it was insane. It was at least 2-3 hours. I would love to see Judas Priest, but that probably won't happen now.

Manilla Road originate from Kansas, I always like to say that... lol. I bet once they hit the road they never came back.

Funny timing haha. Manowar always puts me in the mood for some Virgin Steele too. Great stuff.

Is it with John Arc I hope?

When do you think Manowar jumped ship? lol, Sign of the Hammer is probably their last really good one. I still think they have some great tracks on Fighting the World, King's of Metal, and Triump of Steel... maybe, but they did lose some steam and those albums have a lot of filler.

Hi I was wondering if you could help me out

You seem to have watched a lot of anime, and seem to give some anime that most users give a 4 a 7 in the general area that I like.

You see I am a really picky watcher and I dislike the bulk of anime do to it being depressing or disturbing and enjoy stuff like Captain Tylor and Nadesisco and Dai guard. Also liked here is greenwood. I actually liked the English dub of these because they made them more fun.

Like in an anime called Shingu secret of the stellar wars one of the characters talks to the tv screen and breaks the 3rd wall occasionally. I also don't mind cheesy 80s stuff and really liked the Robotech the new generation anime despite many disliking it I enjoy it when a band of heroes run into each other, same with Tekkaman blade like how they ran into people they thought were dead and such. ( also lodoss)

I tend to give things people find stupid and usually give a 6-7 a 10 and was pretty much wondering if you could think of anything that matched my strange taste in anime.

Thanks, the problem is, every user usually recommends something a bit innapropiate and I tend to like cleaner humor or implied( if its dirty).

Sorry for the bother and thanks if you think of anything.
Nobody seems to get what I like anime wise.

I raise a toast in your honor. ^^

Wow thank you for the voluptuous reply! You did convince me to watch Ani*kuri though, so that is why I liked your review. I will reply more soon but I'm busy at the moment!
Bayrock Sep 13, 2013 9:03 AM
I ended up here due to your Ani*kuri review and thought I'd say hello. I thought your review was comprehensive and I loved Kon's piece. He was able to seriously make use of that minute to convey a message whereas I feel a lot of the others took it more lightly as if it wouldn't reflect their skill. Regardless, I really liked all of the shorts.

On another note, I swear to you I predicted that Legend of the Galactic Heroes would be on your favorites. I haven't taken the time to watch it yet but I've heard it's a true masterpiece through the right eyes. Anyway, I have no idea how or why but I saw it on your favorites before I ever came to your profile, lol.

edit: Man, I just read about you some and it kinda makes me wish I was born a little earlier, oddly. Being a mid 90s child myself the only anime I really knew about until the past couple years are things like Pokemon that I didn't even label anime. I didn't realize I really liked 'anime' until the past year or so, and it makes it a bit harder for me to appreciate the older series.

Even so I can tell you that I know exactly where you're coming from starting to stray from modern anime. I do think you should be a bit more lenient though. There are a lot of typical modern anime, but I feel every title should have a chance to shine instead of being clumped into one mass. I really like some of the older titles but I just find it hard to commit to them very often with all the other series I want to watch and life to deal with. People just don't appreciate them nearly enough, and I think it's sad since the older titles are the true roots.
