04:42 - Ceddybu I feel like those cheese makers who spent like 100 years aging crazy cheeses to perfection are pretty pissed about the reputation their food has.
04:41 - Redn1ght The cheesyness was a fun factor for me. I want to listen to bands with some orchestral elements and heavy instruments. Anyone know something like this?
04:37 - BoxCar Willy Dawn of Victory is the only decent album they wrote. You could pour it on nachos tho, it's so cheesy.
04:37 - Ceddybu I was just kidding, cause you know power metal and everyone having a slave-era southerner brand of hatred towards it. Emerald Sword is a mighty song though. and their 2010 album was pretty good
04:33 - Troy Killjoy Just going by the stats on this site, no idea what any Rhapsody album sounds like.
04:33 - Redn1ght The rating's not that bad either 7.1 (users). But still I heard the some of the new vocalist on that and was like... "Is this the same Rhapsody that dragged me back to Metal?"
04:31 - Ceddybu so The Heart And Soul rules out the possibility the new Rhapsody is JUST THAT GOOD.... so much to learn
Legendary Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has confirmed that the upcoming Led Zeppelin album remasters will be released next year and include previously unreleased material. Page attended the Classic Rock Awards to pick up the "Film Of The Year" award for Celebration Day and shared the news.
Rock photographer Neal Preston will publish a digital book documenting his life on the road with Led Zeppelin. Led Zeppelin: Sound And Fury goes on sale today, April 15th, and includes over 100 photos and 80 contact sheets which have never been seen before, plus other pictures, audio commentary, video and text interviews with others who worked with the band. You can watch behind-the-scenes sneak peeks at the book which are available below.
That's right folks, it has been officially confirmed. Led Zeppelin are giving their fans a whole lotta love. The band announced that their 2007 reunion concert at London's O2 arena will be released in "multiple configurations" as Celebration Day on November 19th, 2012. Prior to that, the film will screen at movie theaters across the globe on October 17th. See the cinema listings here.
On September 8th, rock legends Led Zeppelin simply posted the word 'five' to their Facebook page. Five being important as to suggest the album Led Zeppelin - V might be released. This was the first post the band has made in almost six months and it could be a sign of things to come, or an elaborate rouse.
Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones has spoken to BBC Radio about Led Zeppelin's future plans and it would seem that a new album is in the works as well as a new tour.
"It would seem as", though original frontman Robert Plant is not going to be part of the band's future plans. But bassist John Paul Jones has confirmed rumours that Led Zeppelin have been having regular rehearsals and are planning something big for the near future.
After confirming that "a couple" of singers have tried out for the band, JPJ went on to say: "We want to do it. It's sounding great and we want to get on and get out there."
On the subject of a new vocalist for the band, Jones said: "It's got to be right. There's no point in just finding another Robert. You could get that out of a tribute band, but we don't want to be our own tribute band. There would be a record and a tour, but everyone has to be on board."
Classic Rock has just announced after much speculation that Led Zeppelin will reunite for a one-off special show at the O2 Arena in London on Monday, November 26.
The message on the Classic Rock website procedes:
"Tickets cost £125 each and will be available 'by ballot'. More details as we have it.
The bill also includes Pete Townshend, Bill Wyman & The Rhythm Kings, Foreigner and Paolo Nutini.
Founding members Jimmy Page (guitar), Robert Plant (vocals) and John Paul Jones (bass) will be joined by Jason Bonham, son of the late John Bonham, on drums.
The one-off performance has just been announced via a handout given to attendees at a press conference in the Vue cinema at the O2 complex. It's a memorial gig in honour of Ahmet Ertegun, the co-founder and longstanding chairman of Atlantic Records.
On November 13th, a new two cd 24-track "best of" entitled "Mothership" will be released, with songs selected by Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones. The long awaited remastered edition of "The Song Remains the Same" follows and features bonus material.
"We have revisited "The Song Remains The Same", says Jimmy Page, "and can now offer the complete set as played at Madison Square Garden. This differs substantially from the original soundtrack released in 1976, and highlights the technical prowess of Kevin Shirley, who worked with us on "How The West Was Won". When it comes to "The Song Remains The Same", the expansion of the DVD and soundtrack are as good as it gets on the Led Zeppelin wish list."
Reuters is reporting that LED ZEPPELIN got a "whole lotta" belated love from the music industry on Saturday, earning a lifetime achievement Grammy in recognition of a career that changed the face of rock 'n' roll.
The English band was one of 10 performers, alongside the likes of rockabilly hellraiser JERRY LEE LEWIS, blues belter JANIS JOPLIN and country crooner EDDY ARNOLD, celebrated at a luncheon one day before the Grammy Awards.
During their 12 years together, LED ZEPPELIN never won a Grammy, even though they were arguably the biggest band of the 1970s, a combo whose blues-based rock anthems resonate loudly to this day.
LED ZEPPELIN guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist John Paul Jones showed up with the two children of late drummer John Bonham to receive crystal trophies. Singer Robert Plant, busy rehearsing for a tour, sent in a video message.
