Rubbing it in further! Its a Bangalore only thing ! And whats playing now?
Classic Dream Theater!

@ByDesign,

By your standards, at least I real old school! Still only behind classic metal acts (Heavy, Progressive, Symphonic and Gothic).

Totally submerged into new Maiden album! Its just playing day in day out in my IPOD. Good to hear the Harris's thundering bass, which had some how got submerged into other sounds in the previous three albums.

I finally got my hands on FF. Didn't like it a lot on the first listen. Probably a grower, so will give it another spin after a while.
I would highly recommend another album I recently got my hands on. The new Heathen album.Highly recommended for thrash fans.

e1t1bet, yes it seems to be a grower..have had few listens and it seems to get better - el dorado is still one the weakest though.

and thanks for the Heathen reco (I am a fan of heathen and most old school thrash), did you actually get a cd? I definitely want to visit a music shop when I get to HeadBangalore (lol @NIP and good if it is still on!)

Also read that Coroner seem to have reformed, lets see if an album comes out anytime.
For those that haven't heard of them, they are an amazing tech/prog thrash band from the late 80s.

as for newer thrash bands, recently found out about bands Vektor and Mutant- both have kickass riffing!

@Abhay

Never heard of Vektor or Mutant. I'll check those out. I've been listening to Evile (Brit Thrash) and they have some furious speed thrash riffs. I wish the vocals would have been better though.

I heard Vertebrae by Enslaved yesterday and was completey blown away. The best way I can describe it is minimalist progressive black metal. The Norwegians never cease to amaze!

@et1bet

Are you referring to Fear Factory?

Oh ok! I'm yet to listen to it. Does anyone want to give a detailed review? I think ampere mentioned that the production is a bit off!

The title track just grows on you!

However good or bad the album may be, its still a maiden!

Spinning some Sepultura right now on my PC...anyone else like them?
That band has some awesome tracks, though haven't heard any of their stuff post-Cavalera but Arise and Chaos A.D are amazing albums.

When I listen with a headphone, they sound OK. When I play it on my JBL Northridge, I could feel the sound is a bit muffed.

Also who knows! as it grows on you; you may start liking anything!

I normally don't revisit the album if it doesn't get my interest in the first 1 or 2 listens. There's always something else to listen to.

If that had been the case with me, I would have never grown to like Maiden!
I agree there are truly albums of such class, where you like them in one listen.

One listen to Delicate Sound of Thunder initiated me into Floyd (till my second year of college, I did not know Floyd).

Yeah - kinda the same here and somehow, for the first time, I have not listened to the Final Frontier after the first few listens. But methinks me need to revisit it!

Yeah for me it was the Dark Side of the Moon. Insane album. And I actually got really hooked to Maiden after the X Factor - the album hated by many Maiden fans!
