anyone into underground metal should check out the new wolves in the throne room album immediately.


the album only has 2 tracks totaling 25 minutes, but it is amazing.

on the doom side of things, i can't stop listening to mael mordha lately. adding irish whistle to doom metal was pretty brilliant imo, & the guy can sing besides. great musicians.


another doom band i've really been into lately is electric wizard. dunwich is a great track, & here's a pretty cool video that combines it with the movie:


sorry i don't know how to embed.

The above should work (without the spaces of course) according to Cap'n Bob but I have found that, for me at least, it does not :confused:.

As to the 'Wolves' track, despite the appalling recording quality it was not at all bad. For me a bit too much 'Smiths smooch with the Cure on the way to a Damned concert' but far superior to the death/thrash/black metal cacophany I was expecting - never judge a band by their name it seems :eek:.

all you need is this part ZvOVgVNx_gk between the brackets. And the spaces need to be removed.

Oh how I long for the simpler days when Sabbath were Heavy Rock, Zeppelin were Rock, Whitesnake were Rhythm and Blues and Motorhead were Heavy Metal. Then we had NWOBHM with the likes of Saxon and Def Leppard (and "Toad and the Wet Sprocket" :D).

You've got extra code embedding in there somehow. try typing it up in notepad and pasting it in here.

Dude, I'm all about NWOBHM. I was even listening to Tygers Of Pan Tang today, John Sykes rules.

I never saw him play with the Tygers but I did see him with Thin Lizzie at the Cornwall Colleseum in about 1981 (I think).

The stripped Notepad version manages to put a blank 'screen' into the post but still fails to load the clip?

:D In the words of Windows95 {electronic fanfare} - a bumpy road but with the appropriate guidance and the mighty power of Notepad success was achieved. My thanks, good sir :tup:.

I never saw him with Tygers either (I'm just 28 dammit) but I have the record. I've seen him solo doing the Thin Lizzy show as well as Whitesnake and Blue Murder material ... actually there's a live album of his from Japan that's pretty much all Whitesnake.

Er, I was there :D. Def Leppard were part of it, as were other bands we haven't yet mentioned, like Magnum. Terms appear to have changed their meaning over the past three decades and in their transition over the Atlantic :).

Ozzy was most certainly not part of it - he may be the Prince of Darkness to many but, to old school British rockers, he's the Prince of Sell Out! Thankfully, Sabbath did a number of good albums after he slunk off to Yankee Land - which is because the true musicians remained. He has of course redeemed himself in many ways by the simple act of not actually being dead yet :lol:.

Carol, the embed for the excellent Dream Warriors appears to be suffering from failure? Luckily, I tracked the code back to YouTube via Google :D.

And one of my favourite instrumentals:

And the track by Def Leppard that justifies their existence to me:

I was never big on Def Leppard and for me NWOBM will always have its place and but right now I personally am more interested in the *legacy* it has left. I mean NWOBM is over, right? It is like the folk who lament the passing of the 80s or 90s - while I accept the undoubted influence, still we need to move on, would you not agree? For me, always and ever, Lemmy will never be beat!! Why can we not have more of THIS... This is the kind of NWOBM legacy (as I see it) that I am happy to pursue :)

You'll never guess where Lemmy came from? A certain ex-boy band member might be Stoke's most famous musical export but Lemmy is one most of us rock lovers more happily claim as our own.

Is it an urban myth that Robbie Williams was Lemmy's illegitimate son? :D Not in this thread it ain't... Now Suke... back to the topic at hand :)
