Been listening to some of the old Scorpion songs from the early 70s and they are so kick ass. Pure rock n roll You can hear so clearly how todays metal bands are influenced by them and others from those times.
This will be the album of the year. Just listen. Pure magic.
I disliked Anvantasia previous albums except for a couple of songs due to how simple the songs were to create, sounded too mainstream for me and I absolutely hate mainstream-ish sound. I must admit this sounds MUCH better.
This could very well end up being the best metal album of the century
Virgin Steele released The House of Atreus: Act II, Absu released Tara, Agalloch released The Mantle, Portal released Seepia, Dark Tribe released In Jeraspunta - Die Rückkehr der Tollwütigen Bestie, Crimson Massacre released The Luster of Pandemonium, Katharsis released VVorld VVithout End, Reverend Bizarre released III: So Long Suckers, Dead Congregation released Graves of the Archangels, The Chasm released Farseeing the Paranormal Abysm, Ares Kingdom released Incendiary, Ascension released Consolamentum, Revelation released Inner Harbor, etc.
and that is just ONE album from each year from 2000-2012
ALL OF WHICH are better than EVERYTHING Avantasia has ever done.
