Does anyone else think this song should have been the theme for the Bond movie instead of Adele?

Great tune!

Are you a Helloween fan, HoSo?

not a huge Power Metal guy but i do like me some helloween (and a few other bands like blind guardian, stratovarius, etc). specifically i've heard (and liked) Keeper of the Seven Keys, Helloween (2021), and Gambling With The Devil. don't think i've heard any of their other albums

Nice. Those are three great albums for sure!
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums........or WTF.  ;D
TAC got a higher score than me in the electronic round? Honestly, can I just drop out now? :lol

Well, if you liked Keeper Pt. 1, then Keeper Pt. 2 would be the obvious place to go next with Kiske on vocals..

As far as the Deris albums go, Gambling is excellent. They did a Keeper Pt. 3 with Deris as their singer, and I know how cringy that sounds, but the album is incredible.

Yeah, the label was like...who?! LOL. Oh well, as long as we get a record.

That tour was a concert highlight for the ages.

Knew I heard that label before. They are releasing Kerry King's album. Looks like it was formed by the longtime GM of Nuclear Blast America. They appear to be building another Metal label. Already a decent starting stable of artists on their website.

Pardon the interruption, but I just had to run in and celebrate the majesty of Lube in the Face as highest moment in roulette history

Certainly a bit rougher, and more influenced by speed metal, but I'd recommend their debut Walls of Jericho (+ the EP, as they are always bound together as one now). Kai Hansen on vocals, it's good stuff.

I'd second the Keeper II rec, of course. As for the Deris era, I find The Time of the Oath particularly tasty.

Does anyone else think this song should have been the theme for the Bond movie instead of Adele?

You think that a movie that was released in 2012 should have used a song that didn't exist until nearly a decade later?

Without even counting the fact that a sci-fi song about an alien crashing on Earth is as removed from James Bond as it can possibly be.
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

they can retroactively update the script to be more MIB than 007
