Tools    





I miss these threads, so I'm starting one for where we left off. Have it at!

Dio - The Last in Line
Iron Maiden - Powerslave
Marillion - Fugazi
Prince - Purple Rain
Queensryche - The Warning
U2 - The Unforgettable Fire



Accept - Balls to the Wall
Metallica - Ride the Lightning
Mercyful Fate - Don't Break the Oath
Minutemen - Double Nickels on the Dime
Venom - At War With Satan



Accept - Balls to the Wall
This is technically 1983 (US release was in 1984), but it also rules so IDGAF.

I'll accept it (no pun intended), and that's good to know since I've recently got into them. All I've heard so far is their '93 album Objection Overruled and their album from this year, Too Mean to Die (the standout track for me being Overnight Sensation, which pokes fun at "social media celebrities") and both are good fun. Sounds like I should continue with this album.

Balls to the Wall, Restless and Wild and Metal Heart are all worthwhile, even if the latter is poppier than I'd like.

Crikey. What went down here?



I don't get it. Must be more than what happened there.

"Ok buddy"
"Sure pal"

There was, including a thread Jinnistan made earlier where he was reportedly throwing gas on another drama-fire, but it got deleted before I could log on to read it, so I can't go into any more detail than that.
