Abandon all hope ye who enter here, for it is nigh time da se na grob Virgin Steele-a pobode krst i pojede panaija. Malo dramaticno mozda ali mislim da je posle Nocturnes of Hellfire & Damnation poprilicno sigurno reci da je ovaj bend mrtav.

 

Visions of Eden je meni vec bio klizav teren mada jeste imao dobre pesme, Songwriting Dissability Bacchanalia je barem imao koliko toliko catchy By The Hammer of Zeus ali ovo... ljudi moji. Svi problemi koji more bend godinama ovde stvarno blistaju u punoj snazi: kapiram da bi Ilija iz Ti imao kreativnije rifove od Pursina ovde, koji se jadan i ne cuje jer je u prvom planu, pogadjate, primadona David DeFeis koji nije zdravo koliko lose zvuci. Imaju na onoj prvoj pesmi da se cuju vriskovi kao kod metiljave macke u teranju, a u Devilhead kad pokusava da zvuci agresivno bukvalno kao da nije srao 10 dana i pokusavi Bono Voksa da izbaci. Sta reci recimo o Demolition Qeen koja zvuci kao da je DeFeis iskopao neku zaboravljenu stvar sa Life among the Ruins i ukrasio je svojim danasnjim vokalnim sposobnostima. To su neki od primera a ceo album grca u bezidejnosti, sto je najgore pokusala se neka epika i horor a pesme prazne kao Metallicina dusa dok su snimali Reload. Stvarno katastroficno los album.

 

Bonus disk nisam jos smogao snage ali mogu misliti kakav je bonus kad je main album ovakav....

Moram samo da uletim u odbranu bratu Pursinu, on je na Bahahahhanaliji na manje od pola pesama bio prisutan, nije mi sad tu cd, ali tipa 5 od onih 15, sve ostalo onaj Block, a i za ovaj novi jedan klip što sam video je bilo David i Josh u studiju, tako da... :]

Stigli mi Marriage 1 i 2 i Invictus reizdanja pa sam prigodno upao u tesku opsednutost ovim bendom, kakva vatra seva, Pursino i DeFeis su dotaknuli nebo ovde, ne znam odakle im inspiracija za ovakva remek dela u takvom periodu ali nema veze.

Ova reizdanja kvare bonus pesme koje ocigledno nisu iz istih sesija, recimo na Marriage 1 je neka Sword of Damocles koja je katastrofa, nisu trebali nista stavljati.

Ima ove dve Exorcist pesme obrade, odlični riffovi.

 

Nego, pazi ovo:

 

Rockpages.gr: You told me a few days ago that you didn’t play on the new Virgin Steele album. Would you like to elaborate a little bit more on that? Why did David DeFeis decide not to use your drumming skills this time around?

Frabk Gilchriest: I think that is a question more for Dave. I haven't recorded anything with them in over five years. I offered to record all or at least part of the CD in my studio for free, where I recorded the Riot V CD and other projects but he was not interested. I was really disappointed in his decision. When I pressed him further on this issue, he told me he could do just as good and less costly a job by playing the drums himself with his piano using drumming software and his computer. In fact, he told me that a quadriplegic could play the drums as good as anyone else these days because of advances in technology. Nothing against quadriplegics, but seriously? He also stated he wanted to do the drums himself so that if the CD is a great success, he can take all the glory or if the CD is a failure, he can take all the blame. You may notice that on the new release and bonus tracks that the software drums are more prominent in the mix, whereas on the recordings that I played real drums on, the drums are buried. Recording drums is a serious art form. On the early Virgin Steele classic albums, the drums sounded amazing and were upfront in the mix because the band recorded in a professional studio with a competent engineer. “Invictus” came the closest to my true sound but even that recording was lacking due to the incompetence of the engineer who hated heavy metal and never recorded a heavy metal album before aside from the Virgin Steele ones. He was a hip hop engineer and had no idea what do to do with loud pounding drums. After “Invictus,” Dave took control of the recording process and the drum recordings and mixes got progressively worse until I was replaced by a drum machine [...] I will no loner be playing with VIRGIN STEELE.

 

Jebao sam ti ja Dejve malo mater.

Moram da priznam da jedem sad sebi jedno mudo što se nisam izcimao na ovo, svršoteka od liste.

 

Zlatko beše bio od forumaša pominjao da će da ode? Javi se prijatelju, reci da je bilo sranje da mi bude lakše.

 

 

Ok, David se raspada, očekivano, ali publika :o Pursino :o

 

Suza na 0:45, na 2:13 mrak.

Evo javljam se. :) Ne, nisam bio ove godine, bio sam prosle. Citao sam neke komentare i posle par odgledanih snimaka reci cu odavde da je bilo sranje. :) Bar meni, pevanje mi je toliko iritantno da nema dalje. Ove godine pored Heavy Load skrpljenog tribute benda cini mi se da je ponajbolje prosao Heir Apparent.

Ova tema počela više da mu služi kao neka terapija i izduvni ventil nego za diskusije.

 

Nabavio skoro Nightmare Theatre reizdanje, ima tri jebene verzije albuma, što i ajde nije ništa strašno. Dva remastera i jedan remix...više ne znam ni šta jedan predstavlja a šta treći, mislim da ću se u budućnosti držati prve polovine prvog diska i dosta :haha:

Nego, najgora stvar su "bonus" pesme na drugom disku, koje su većinom isti k kao i svi bonusi na Virgin Steele reizdanjima - nove pesme. Ali gde su na skorašnjim Age Of Consent i sl. reizdanjima snimane sa full (većinom?) bendom, ovde su pesme iz DeFeisove muzičke šupe gde ih je sam radio ulažući u njih jednako kreativnosti kao ja u ovaj post..

Malo ga pokriva što opet procesira vokal kao na originalnom albumu, ali opet na par mesta "peva" i užasno je. Sve je kroz komp rađeno, uključujući naravno bubnjeve koji zvuče neverovatno loše, ko misli da su loši na Running Wild albumima treba ovo da čuje... U stvari, ima jedna pesma koja treba da liči na stari Exorcist, puta dva, pa 8 minuta neke poremećene poezije i neka pesma koja je kombo opet te poezije i rehashovanih utišanih starih pesama.

 

Fala kurcu pa ova Atreus izdanja nemaju bonuse, dosta mi je novog DeFeis materijala ove godine,

Poslednja dva diska su kompilacije starog materijala, zato rekoh "samo" trostruki. A i deo trećeg, "novog" albuma, su neke orkestralne verzije starih pesama.

 

Ah, jedva čekam da čujem taj njegov studijski orkestar.

 

Pa da mi je rekao da je Neal Peart gostujući bubnjar na albumu pa ne bih imao trunku optimizma oko ovoga.

There are bands that build up a legendary status and run with it, some call it quits while people are still sad about that happening and then there are some that try to continue on and completely ruin everything that they had once stood for. Enter David DeFeis and Virgin Steele.
