...
Jag Panzer!?: Translates as roughly ‘Hunter tank’, I think! Woah... early Iron Maiden again, cross-bred with Judas Priest. Ooh nice solo with a brief play on a baroque structure... clever/different.

Hammerfall – Nothing here really stands out. The overall is ok though. ‘temples, thunder, etc’ Gawd they do go on...

Manowar – Love the burning chains. More leather than if Alice Cooper owned a 50,000 acre ranch. Very 80’s. Didn’t know anyone still wrote music like this. ‘Warriors, thunder, destruction, pain, Gods’ etc.... there’s a pattern forming here.

ETOS – like 4-chord death-metal. Cute. The vocalist sounds German. Easy listening, complex, interesting, this one could really grow on me. Enjoying the lack of death, thunder, and general wrath-bolts from above :) Love the 3:30m-4m section [esp the keys, reminds me of Focus, if they’d cross-bred with the Stranglers!]....

Kamelot - 10+ minutes, not a good omen! Andrew Lloyd Webber makes a musical about early metal, with leggings, lip-gloss and lots of gay dancers. I lasted to 2:30, when it was seemingly going in to a loop

I think I’ll go back to ETOS, and follow some of the side-links too. Very nice recording/engineering on this track too, comes through *beautifully* over my PC. Thanks for that, something I wouldn’t have come across by myself, so great to have suggested. [Man he slays that guitar in the intro!!)


-- Just 1st listen immediate impressions, and much music tends to grow on me [show me a man who even gets Miles Davis within the 1st ten years of first hearing him] --



Glad you enjoyed a few on those bands I posted. ETOS is one of my favourite bands although my favourite bands change like the seasons :)
ETOS is a finnish band by the way.
I'll post a few more today
:wink:

'Nails in my brain
Nails hurt'


Ok... :o


p.s. Interesting how it morphs from outright death-metal to .... an almost Prodigy/or techno sound.
I type as I listen... and this is growing on me! :))

The Finns (or at least the ones I've met) are an unusual/eccentric lot. But that track was pretty easy-listening...

Like it...
Like peacefully sitting out on the balcony at 11pm, a cigar and a whisky
And having all the time to consider ....

All four are deep.
