Dee Snider - Become The Storm

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hljBz0zTEKQ

 :metal :metal :metal :metal :metal   This song is slamming and Dee sounds so awesome!  I wasn't too big on the first single, but this one is a killer song.

I really know next to nothing on Dee and his work, but that was very good.

Yeah - the guy from Helker on vocals.

Certainly sounds a lot more like Dio music than Last In Line (band)

Oh is it?

I think I dropped the needle in a couple of spots on their last album. I may have to revisit it.

Not a bad lineup. Will check that out when I get home.

The verse is Last in Line but faster.

Saxon! :metal

So I decided to listen to Thunderbolt the other day. Upon its release, my first impressions were that, of their more recent releases, I consider it the weakest.

After many years of not paying attention, I did a blind buy of Lionheart, and ever since then, Saxon has had a great run of albums ever since.

Anyway, Thunderbolt did not really make any gains on my most recent listen. Perhaps it's been the amazing albums they've released recently, but this album is simply not up to snuff, in my eyes. I think Judas Priest's Firepower wipes the floor with Thunderbolt.

I rank the last 7 Saxon albums like this:

Sacrifice
Battering Ram
Call To Arms
The Inner Sanctum
Lionheart
Into The Labyrinth
Thunderbolt

I like it though it reminds me of a Dynazty song off Sultans of Sin.

Call to Arms is probably the weakest out of all of those for me.

Call to Arms is still an excellent album.

Hammer of the Gods and Afterburner are major ass kickers.

Saxon is just a band that really can do no wrong no matter what.  If I had to pick a weakest album, it would be tough to pick one.  Maybe Rock the Nations or the debut, but they are still good ones.

I saw Bruce Dickinson and nearly shat myself, then I saw it was a speaking tour.  Looks mighty interesting still though.

I like the mentioning that it's for all ages, so he's probably not going to say fuck a lot.  :lol

If he came somewhere near me I would probably go, I thoroughly enjoyed his autobiography.

No really my thing Tim.  I have seen some footage of his speaking tour and it seems to be mostly a bit of (iffy) stand up comedy while he reads passages from his book.  I'm just a casual Maiden fan so will likely pass.

There hasn't been much going on for a while and suddenly we have tours everywhere.  We have Primal Fear/Sinner,  Stryper , Scorps/Def Leppard and an Aussie metal fest thing (only $35) with bands like Damnations Day/Lord/Vanishing Point on the one bill in coming months -and I'm sure I forgot a couple.  I certainly won't make it to them all.

Didn't know Stryper were coming, and doing a show in Brisbane.  Not sure if I could handle Michael Sweet throwing bibles at me.  Fucking $86 too!!!  WTF?!
