23:51 - 3rdWorld Listening to the new Opeth just to bash it and incite some flames in the thread. They clearly sound like Ghost now. B-)
23:41 - 3rdWorld Tasty stuff. Dwelves even further away from any grindcore at all. [link]
23:33 - !J.O.O.E.! Still don't hear it at all. The debut had a lot of punk and heavy metal influence for me. That Chinese band sound like straight up black metal with some melodic elements.
23:30 - Apothecary And yeah, I guess it isn't all that far off from their earlier material, when I think of the Meads in my head now though I typically think of their more recent stuff, i.e. TMOJTJ and on

LaBrie said about the song: "I am completely over the top with Impermanent Resonance and here is its first single, Agony. I am more than sure that you will be banging your head and your blood will be coursing through you like jet fuel. As far as I am concerned this is only a teaser to 11 other tracks that will take you for a dynamic and emotional ride. Crank this song and Raaaaaaaawk!"
Dream Theater is my favorite band, but I'm glad that his solo stuff sounds completely different. It's good to hear his voice on more streamlined arranged songs and I love the Soilwork meets power metal direction he's taken with his last couple albums.
