Call me a liar, you knew
You were a fool but that's cool, it's all right
Call me the Devil, it's true
Some can't accept but I crept inside you

Best. Verse. Ever.

Yeah, I usually don't get excited when I hear about old bands making new albums but I'm kinda excited for this. Kinda bummed Bill wasn't a part of it...

Heaven and Hell was a decent album.

Heaven and Hell is sweet, dude. It's a little too polished for me. I'm hoping that "13" is a little more raw and Master Of Reality-like. I'm sure there will be some big, angry riffs, though.

Yeah, I know what you're talking about. I don't know if you've ever heard of The Sword or not but I love their first two albums the most due to how raw and gritty it sounds compared to their latest two.

that brings up a good question... best newer album from older band? To qualify the band has to have seen it's "peak" in the mid-90s or earlier and the newer album has to have been released in the past 10 years.

Megadeth "United Abomination"
Rush "Clockwork Angels" (yes it's a "homer" pick since this is my favorite band.. but I really do LOVE this album right now.)

That's a great album, one of their heaviest too.

Yes. can't believe someone posted King Diamond!


I can't believe I keep forgetting about King Diamond! I even own two of their albums, Them and Abigail. :P

Andy LaRocque is one of my favourite guitarists.

I like some of the early Rush (up till about Moving Pictures... then I have to be in the right mood for the "middle stuff".... then at Counterparts I really started liking them all over again (especially their last few albums.)

Yeah, right after Moving Pictures I stopped buying albums, I've never been a fan of that 80's "keyboard" sound.

Counterparts was a welcome return. Angles is my favourite of their new stuff.

I've been listing to a lot of the Priest lately and I was wondering what people's favourite Judas Preist song and/or album is?

Personally Beyond the Realms of Death is my number one Priest song.

Favorite album is a tough one, it's a threeway toss up between Rocka Rolla, Stained Class & Killing Machine for me.

song... "Revolution," it's a great mix of deep guitars, Rob's voice and just overall sound.

I think album, it's hard to argue against British Steel since it's a metal classic album

Clockwork Angels is the bomb! I love 80's Rush, too. I was 14 when "Moving Pictures" came out. Good times!

I have to go with Van Halen's "A Different Kind Of Truth", though. Solid from start to finish. Some of Eddie's best playing ever. I don't care what anyone says... "Tattoo" is a cool song.

I never really LOVED VH, I just liked them (nothing against Eddie.) I should I say, they are the type of band (for me) that I won't just purchase an album of theirs just because it's VH... I only own the first album, DD, Women and Children.., F.U.C.K. and Balance. Meanwhile, I've purchased every Rush album from Counterparts to Clockwork the day it came out.

I think I also moved more away from VH due to Chickenfoot (LOVE their overall sound!)

that would be my album pick for JP after British Steel. I remember getting it on cassette and just being amazed with Rob's vocals. I actually had that album before British.. it was one of my "gateway" albums that got me into metal (others being Master of Puppets, Hanger 18, State of Euphoria.)

but one question has always been on my mind that nobody has been able to answer.. how on earth did we NOT see Rob "coming out" a million miles away!? And I think it's great that none of the fans really cared when it was announced... "eh... he's still a metal god"

that's the thing I love with Rush... different styles for different times and different moods. I'll freely admit that there are days when I need to crank Power Windows, Grace Under Pressure, etc. but then there are "2112" days as well. One album that REALLY grew on me over time is Vapor Trails. When I first bought it, it was at the bottom of the "newer" albums list (counterparts thru today) but now I probably listen to that album more than any other (besides Clockwork.)

I agree, Zamboni. Who cares if Rob Halford is gay? The guy has some of the best pipes in Metal history, right? Who cares who he sleeps with? I had no clue he was gay and when I found out, it was a "meh" moment, for me.

I'm the same way, dude. I love Rush and I "rush" out to buy their new album on release day, too! I own every album on vinyl up to "Presto" and I have all of the others on disc. I love their musicianship and diversity and, as a bass player, I totally appreciate the virtuosity of all 3 members.

Weird... "Witch Hunt", my favorite tune off of "Moving Pictures", just came on my iTunes! :blink:

No argument there, Tom!

You'll probably not agree with this, but, I'd put Sammy Hagar right after Halford and Dickinson!

I literally crapped my pants when my uncle made me listen to 2112 for the first time, my favourite Rush song. Is it just me or does anyone else think they should have extended 2112 by 39 seconds...

:bigblush:

Yeah, Vapor Trails had similar effect on me as well.

Actually, I don't know if it's because I'm a little older or what but I've been listining to a few of Rush's 80's albums (Power Windows, Signals, ect.) and its not as bad as I remember them being... :P
