Crap.  How the hell did that happen?  I even checked to make sure they all played

I thought of another one. The Storyteller. If you like early Blind Guardian you should enjoy this:

Oh yeah, I like that. I think I heard that years ago. I wonder whatever happened to this band.

Storyteller is not bad. I think I've heard a few things of theirs before.

As far as I know they only have that one album.

I really like Storyteller.  They continued that epic power metal with Celtic overtones sound that Blind Guardian abandoned.  I like that album I posted better than anything BG put out after Nightfall.

I'd agree that BG didn't put much good out after Nightfall.

Today in the car I put in Pandora's Pinata by Diablo Swing Orchestra. That made me realize we hadn't heard from them in a while. Turns out they have a new album called "Pacifisticuffs" coming out Dec. 7.

They do some hilarious covers and videos. Here's another one of my favorites from them.

I too brought out an oldie but goodie today while driving to my doctor's appointment.  Shinedown's
"Amaryllis":



This incidentally is the theme song to WWE's "Monday Night Raw" show.

This is actually a really solid album of "modern rock" if that's what you want to call it. Basically I just think it's a great album of music.

That's not a band I'm familiar with, but that's a pretty good song.

That's not terrible but it's a little too mired in a lot of 80s musical clichés like keyboards to forward in the mix and being about 4 minutes longer than it should be.

My favorite Shinedown album is "Amaryllis" which that song is from but my favorite Shinedown song is this one which is from an earlier and overall weaker (IMO) album:



This one came up on random play while I was running to Sam's pharmacy for my latest prescription.  I forgot how much I love this song which is what made me dig Amaryllis out of the vault yesterday.

The album was a little too AOR for me.

Not bad either. Pretty catchy, in fact.

Sentenced - Cold White Light

Such a great, lyrically depressing album.

Not my thing at all. It's like it can't make up it's mind what genre to be.
