How is that? The last A7X I heard was Hail To The King.

I'm quite impressed! They have grown alot! Power Metal with Prog leanings! Longer complex songs but still heavy! They even have Horns in one song!!!

I still play City of Evil a lot. I love that album. It's sort of like a more accessible Tool.

Still a desert island album for me.  I wore my T shirt of the album cover when I took Tux to the vet over the weekend and the punk-looking girl at the reception desk said "Ooooo, I love that album!".  So do I!

That's not bad. But I still hate that song. That song and its fellow disco disasters completely ruined the dating scene for me for over a year.

Stayin' Alive always reminds me of this scene in Airplane!

Judas Priest > Turbo 30th Anniversary

I know a lot of Priest fans rag on this album, but I really enjoy it.

I do as well, love that album. Maybe not as much as few other ones in their catalogue, but I like it a lot.

Devin > Townsend

I'm really enjoying this one.

I thought Devin Townsend did growling projects?

He does all sorts of things. The growling project was called Strapping Young Lad. The newer stuff is more melodic and quite varied.

I looked him up on Wikipedia and found quite a bit of interesting things. He actually played with the Wildhearts in 1994. He's played with Steve Vai and others as well. He's quite a varied vocalist and his range has been noted to be over 5 octaves (C2 to F7). He's also been married since he was 19.

Interesting. Just knowing he was in The Wildhearts AND was Strapping Young Lad tells you how varied the guy is.

His stuff is all over the place. It goes from melodic and atmospheric, to the extreme metal of Strapping Young Lad. Some of that is really, really good stuff. He also had a punk band called "Punky Bruster" that did an album called "Cooked on Phonics".

I love Epicloud. I think you would too. Here's what he says about the album.

"Over the course of the full record, there's sort of new age-y stuff, jazzy stuff, really heavy stuff. We basically cover the gamut. Epicloud is the first record that I felt confident enough to include all those things on one record so it goes between melodic hard rock to schizophrenic heavy metal to country to really ambient stuff and it's all in one place. I'm using a gospel choir, a string section and a horn section for this one as well."

Here's another one from it.
