  1. Favourite Albums of 2017 Thread

    I think the only studio album I picked up that was released this year was Dropkick Murphys' 11 Short Stories Of Pain And Glory. Some excellent live albums were released this year though, my favorites being Iron Maiden's The Book Of Souls: Live Chapter, Ghost's Ceremony & Devotion, and The Rolling Stones' Sticky Fingers Live At The Fonda Theatre.
  2. Iron Maiden - Legacy Of The Beast European Tour 2018

    If can mange it, you really should. The gigs are so much more fun in Europe. If you can only swing one gig don't do Norway - it's a festival, and their headlining gigs are a lot more fun. Not that I don't love the gigs in Norway (And Trondheim will be my 100th gig actually), but go for a headlining gig. If you can still find a ticket for Stockholm, that's one of the best crowds in Europe.
  3. Ghost

    Giving it a listen today, can't wait.
  4. Sure. But she was touted as a major character in TFA, and was a complete waste of screen time (For all of three minutes)
  5. The Disaster Artist

    Saw it last night. It's honestly one of the most enjoyable films I've ever seen. James Franco is at his absolute peak - he was born to play Tommy Wiseau. The film is fairly accurate to the book, though it does take a few small liberties most likely in the interest of run time (The biggest being glossing over some of Greg's life between meeting Tommy and starting work on The Room). The rest of the cast is phenomenal as well, and the cameos never feel too on the nose. There's a montage at the end where they compare the original film side-by-side to the scenes they recreated for The Disaster Artist, and it's truly amazing how close they got to the original film. Highly, highly recommended whether or not you know and love The Room.
  6. And Captain Phasma, and the Death Troopers in Rogue One...

    On a beach in Adelaide. One of my Aussie friends refers to me as the Yankee Fucka, and requested I take this pic while I was down there.
  8. You gonna get it spoiled for you, I know you too well. How dark are you? Like, have you seen the trailers?
  9. Queen Biopic - Bohemian Rhapsody

    You mean before Cohen got sacked by the surviving members of Queen.
  10. Iron Maiden - Legacy Of The Beast European Tour 2018

    There’s no concrete info, just a couple rumors. I don’t particularly believe them either, so I’d rather not spread false info. On the topic of the tour though, Krakow WILL be getting a second night now as well - Live Nation Poland jumped the gun and listed a second gig for about half a day over the weekend.
  11. Iron Maiden - Legacy Of The Beast European Tour 2018

    Second nights in London and Paris have been added. London got added while I was in the Outback and floor tickets are gone already. So that'll be fun to sort out
  12. Iron Maiden - Legacy Of The Beast European Tour 2018

    No, it wasn’t THAT bad last time in Zagreb. It wasn’t just the Zagreb gig - it was the tour in general. 2013 was the first year with Tiny Newton as the sound engineer after Doug Hall had a falling out with the band. Bear in mind that prior to Tony taking over, Doug was the ONLY sound engineer Maiden had ever had. So it took Tony a bit of time to figure it out.
  13. Iron Maiden - Legacy Of The Beast European Tour 2018

    Second night added for Helsinki. Second nights for Paris and London expected to be added tomorrow.
  14. Got a link? I'm not seeing a new trailer with a quick YouTube search.
  15. RIP Malcolm Young

    You fucking nailed it man. It's amazing how many of us on here were first drawn to AC/DC before anything else. Hell, it's amazing how many of us used to post on the old AC/DC forums together. I wouldn't be on here today if @highvoltage didn't convince me to come on over when CD songs started leaking in 2006. AC/DC is such an amazing band. The rhythm section seems so simplistic at face value - three chords, chugging eighth note basslines, and a standard four beat with no fills.But when you actually dissect it, and look at all the components it really is incredible how intricate it all is. Perfect example is I remember in some thread relating to Phil vs. Chris, we managed to have a serious discussion about the merits of each drummer in AC/DC and how they have little things that differ from each other and how they drive the songs differently. It really says something about the importance of rhythm in AC/DC that we can have a discussion like that about a fucking four beat.
