22 Ago 2011, 21:25 de Neue_regel_As Frank Zappa said: "most rock journalism is people who can't write, interviewing people who can't talk, for people who can't read." Extremely true, if you ask me. However, I'll try my best in this little journal role. Of course, there are thousands upon thousands of music genres. Nevertheless, only a few can boast and entail a sheer bombastic splendour without simultaneously losing any edge of intellectual honesty and rigor. Definitely, progressive metal is one of those. From wiki: " Progressive metal (sometimes known as prog metal) is a subgenre of heavy metal, which blends the powerful, guitar-driven sound of metal with the complex compositional structures, odd time signatures, diverse philosophical lyrics and intricate instrumental playing of progressive rock. Many progressive metal bands are also influenced by jazz fusion and classical music. Like progressive rock songs, progressive metal songs are typically much longer".

These are all albums that I really, honestly enjoy without having to force myself or anything. I tried to limit the list to a single album per artist, but indicated cases where I found it really hard to decide.
Note that in most cases, I'm not familiar with the artist's entire back catalogue, so I'm probably missing out on a lot of great albums that I'd agree are better than the ones I'm listing here, so I'm far from claiming that those are the artist's best work overall in every case, but I'm confident that every album is a decent representation of the artist's work. Also note that I've left out a few albums that are still too new for me in my opinion to judge whether they belong into a list of all-time favourites. This is part of the reason why this list is slightly biased towards older albums, but not the only reason, as I do find myself preferring the early work of established acts in many cases. …
2 Ene 2010, 2:11 de InfiniteDark1. Лучшие альбомы
1. Guilt Machine -On This Perfect Day
Стиль Арьена угадывается моментально в любой его работе, "On This Perfect Day" не стал исключением. Красивая, проработанная до мельчайших деталей, размеренная, но безумно эмоциональная музыка. Недостатков я просто не вижу.
2. Kiko Loureiro -Fullblast
Наверное европейский музыкант никогда не записал бы альбом с таким звучанием и настроением. Такой ЖИВОЙ альбом. Браво)
3. Epica -Design Your Universe
По сравнению с предыдущим альбомом "Design Your Universe" несколько потерял в навороченности структур и, одновременно, в хитовости, но зато приобрёл кое-что другое. Не верится, что раньше гитара у Epica находилась в глубоком дауне (на "The Divine Conspiracy" был целый один соляк!). Наконец-то появились мощные риффы и отличные соло, и мне это нравится) У меня есть ощущение что этот альбом не просто…

31 Dic 2008, 18:13 de gunleikMuch of the information in the "Will realease" is wrong! haven't updated it yet...
Firstly, some of this info IS wrong. Since it's so many bands, and the dates may change etc., I can't keep track of them all.
TBA means to be announced.
Some of the albums on WILL RELEASE may be working titles, which means that the band may change it. That counts for the release dates too.
