Yeah, some good ones. COC, always a fave, Clean my Wounds is an outstanding example of straight forward drums to fit the song. Always a big fan of DRI.

I heard Death Angel on Boneard on XM Radio not too long ago, at first I thought they were going to be a trend band but I was pleasantly surprised.

And I love CoC, I really need to get more of their stuff.

I feel the need to contribute again.

The Hall Of The Mountain King by Savatage. Sadly, it was the only good album put out by a band with huge potential. It was a great fusion of Thrash with hints of Progressive sprinkled in. I definitely recommend them.

If it makes you feel better, the mastermind behind Savatage is now the mastermind behind Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

Just heard them on the radio today. And I heard they also got a new vocalist and will release some new music in 2008.

Hey how about Nitro? While I was browsing DBK's myspace for things to laugh at him about, I ran into that clip of the guitar player. Didn't that guy Michael Angelo play guitar for them?
