The new Myrath song is pretty good. Looking forward to that one. It's been way too long since Tales of the Sands.

So far the only 2016 releases I have are:

Serenity - Codex Atlanticus
Dream Theater - The Astonishing


I like the Serenity, the new guitar player does fine. The songwriting, for the most part, is fine. I do think that the symphonic/orchestra parts are taking over Serenity's sound too much though. They need to go back to that really huge, guitar-centric sound/production that Fallen Sanctuary & Death and Legacy both had. I'd give it a solid 3 stars, definitely worth picking up if you are a fan of Serenity, but it's not as good as their first 3 albums. Maybe better than their last album War of Ages, though.


The new Dream Theater…….excellent playing (as usual), really great production, you can even hear John Myung very clearly. Less metal/heavy rock, and much much more a progressive sound. I don't want to say it's a '70s prog rock sound, but it does have a bit of '70s prog feel to it, even if the music sounds more modern.

That said, I think it's an album I won't listen to much. It's just not keeping my interest for the most part. Disc 1 has 20 tracks, but many of them are interludes/segues into the next track, and not much 'song' going on. Even the few longer songs on disc 1 sometimes seem as they are cut off abruptly and on to the next track. Disc 1 is therefore more like 1 long song, split into 20 parts. Disc 2 is more song oriented, a few interludes, but mainly songs on the 14 tracks. Disc 2 keeps my interest a bit longer. I would bet that live, played front-to-back, complete with visuals, The Astonishing will be great in concert. As a complete album though, I'd give it 3.5 stars. Again, an album every Dream Theater fan should own. Casual DT listeners should maybe skip it though.

^ Don't think I'm going to buy this new Dream Theater album, bits I've heard just don't impress me and I've bought every one of them on release since the first album. There's just so many better bands out there doing prog metal and I rarely listen to DT albums these days much after the initial honeymoon period.

The Astonishing is more like the Letdown of the Year for me.

New Anvil album is out later this month, love the album cover. It screams the art of Surrealist Rene Magritte:

I got the new Myrath this past Friday, and it's excellent. It's not as guitar-heavy as 'Desert Call', it's much more in the vein of 'Tales Of The Sands', with more keyboards and middle-eastern symphonic elements. I think the songs are better on this new album 'Legacy' than they were on 'Tales Of The Sands'. Legacy has gotten several listens from me already, and I loved it from the outset Smile

I agree
Thought there's something wrong with me as everyone praises this album and I don't  LOL

Can't wait for the new 3rd Machine album, knowing that Mark Jansen is going to be on it makes me even more excited:

The new Agoraphobic Nosebleed EP "Arc" is pretty damn great. They play doom/sludge on this one instead of grindcore:

Yes, it was a bit of a surprise, but it sounds like they know what they're doing, and not just messing around.

Absolutely Clap. It´s not the first time they´ve experimented with doom/sludge metal though. Just never on a full release before (as far as I know).
