14:25 - Dima ooo defs gonna check that out. The original was unbearable for me
13:38 - !J.O.O.E.! Having heard most of this version now, it's a contender to knock Unlock The Shrine of its pedestal [link]
13:00 - Timmeh Indeed, I cannot possibly read the word 'Mayhem' without hearing the voice of Necrobutcher.
11:46 - !J.O.O.E.! Funnily enough some of the best tracks from that BTC comp are from the new entities, that have nothing else to their name [link] Probably Ramirez fucking about.
11:37 - Joe Zombie Still waiting for updates on Charlie Fell's new band...
08:34 - ScreamingSteelUS I've returned from tonight's show with a setlist from Mayhem, a pick from Watain's bassist, the new Mayhem and Rotting Christ, a Mayhem shirt, and vomit on my shoes from the guy next to me. Shook Necrobutcher's hand. Good show.

Concerto Moon is a unique band from Japan, whose leader [and guitar player Norifumi Shima] is actually a star in his own country. The vocals are in Japanese with a touch of English and they play a kind of retro power metal. This EP is added to some European versions of their third full-time album Rain Forest.
This EP includes a longer version of their famous 'Time To Die' [the introductive solo is longer!], two brand new songs [track 2 and 3] and two live versions of their best songs. The new version of 'Time To Die' is very well worth listening to, 'King Of The Judas' is an excellent composition whereas 'Waltz For Masquerade' is not that original. Finally, both live hits [at least in Japan] 'Run To The Sky' and the raging 'Alone In Paradise' are definitely the best live versions that Concerto Moon has ever recorded [much better than on their official live called The End Of The Beginning].
If you like any Concerto Moon album, you will love that EP. It contains the best live sessions of the band plus one of their best songs ever 'King Of The Judas' [plus a longer/better version of 'Time To Die']. Almost important as any album of the band, Time To Die has to be part of your CDs, especially if you are into old school power metal!
