First day of Spring 2016 ...

Time to walk more so into the sunlight, the flowers, the butterflies, the glory that Spring brings!

Ah ... dear Rob-san thank you so much for getting back to me. Are you still travelling all over Europe these days or are you finally settled in beautiful Switzerland?
I am doing well with days being better than others but such is life eh? I recently spotted some beautiful Chinese animation that reminded me so much of the old Disney style.

Here's an example:

You will find information on it in the MAL database.

I do hope you enjoy it.

Haha, thanks for the heads up, I may have not noticed. :P

Yeah the first Portrait album is admittedly pretty bad. I never really listen to that one. In Solitude is definitely good stuff. They remind me of Netherlands Martyr, I always dig vocals like that too.

Yeah Maiden was no joke. Amazing how much they were running and jumping around for being in their 50's. Glad Bruce beat cancer recently! I probably like Halford's style a little more, but I've admittedly come to like Maiden themselves more over the years. Still love a lot of Priest though and wish I could see them live too. Sad Wings of Destiny and Defenders of the Faith are probably my favorites from them.

I freaking love Tim Baker's vocals. Does he still sound awesome? Cirith Ungol are like a catchier Manilla Road or something haha...

és portugues a viver na suiça? comecei agora a ver o rose of versailles, e parece-me que vou gostar, faz-me lembrar o legend of the galactic heroes

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.
Echelon Dec 22, 2015 2:14 PM
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.
