I do plan on going this time, if it is after Feb 19 I am in!

sorry...read it now..Feb 5th? probably won't be able to make it then :\

If they are going to play stuff from Heritage then it's not much of a worry, I mean it is good as far as prog rock goes but its way too different to their 90s music (which is what I enjoy the most)

Oh when I said fairly new, I meant that relatively. I don't listen to today's music. In fact, today's music isn't really music. It's just a load of excrement (no offense guys). My playlist generally consists of music from the '60s and '70s. Lots of blues in there, and a little rock thrown in for good measure. So Tool is quite new, not just to me, but to the whole rock scene. Just like how some of the other '90s bands are new

BTW, Tool makes me a very angry driver. I try and not listen to it because it would make me do things on the road that I otherwise wouldn't, and shouldn't.

Any Rush fans in the house? I know they're not strictly heavy metal but we're talking about Tool and the like, so may as well...

Do check out the Sam Dunn documentary "Beyond The Lighted Stage" for a very affectionate and utterly enthralling look at the band- it wil make you fall in love with the band again!

Own their each and every album (in disk!). Production Quality is top notch starting from the first album. And yes the documentary is fantastic.

The Rush in Rio live DVD though is not all that great from a sound point of view.
My personal favorite: 2112. !

I heard schism way way back when it came out, and its video still haunts.....creepy crawlies.

Tool is pretty heavy Noop. Definitely belongs to the genre of Metal, albeit progressive and experimental.

And oh yes, a classic-rock playlist is incomplete without Rush.

Tool does that to you. Their songs are well, scary, to put it bluntly.

And here is a quote for you Ampere:

Quote:
"I can detect more Tool influence in King Crimson, than I can hear King Crimson in Tool."
- Robert Fripp

Anybody listened to TH1RT3EN by Megadeth? After few disappointing albums, and with Dave and David reunited, I had high hopes on this. And guess what? It is million times better than what I expected! I just can't stop listening to it again and again. Good thing, they've stopped experimenting and have gone back to what they are best at. Reminds me of their 'rusted' days. I'd recommend this to any thrash metal fan.

There is one song, I forgot the name, where a riff sounds like short bursts of bullets from a machine gun. I just love it!

Most of Opeth's recent set lists have been a good mix of old aand new stuff.

It was good to a point because I had so low expectations.

To be honest, its nothing but rehashed stuff (quite a few re-recorded/unreleased songs on the album). Pretty sure Dave did this to complete his commitment to the record label. The next album hopefully will be better.

Nowhere near Rust in Peace plus the over the top shredding by Broderick doesn't compare in anyway to the amazing playing of Friedman.

edit" the song you mean is Wrecker?

edit2: noopster I enjoy Rush quite a bit..especially their instrumental stuff and interludes

^yeah I read it somewhere, haven't yet got a chance to check it out...
btw did I rec you a band called Arkham Witch? If not check it out as well as The Lamp of Thoth (both have afew of the same guys including a female drummer!).
Amazing old school riffage (that typical Gibson + Marshall crunch)...heavy yet melodic alongwith doom/occult lyrical themes.

Maiden releases another live Blue-ray/DVD. Don't know how many more they would keep rolling out.
