23:01 - tibosax Sounds good 3rd, but I don't know if I can stand 10 10 minutes songs of tha monotonous style
22:52 - Doge of Venice Exactly. :P As an old fan of theirs, it's definitely more energised and interesting than anything they've done for a decade.
22:51 - 3rdWorld v Clickbait Avenged Sevenfold shite.
22:48 - Doge of Venice Don't mean to be that dude, but the new best kvlt album of the year leaked - [link] Just joking. Few songs in, so far quite interesting. Vocals will still be love/hate
22:42 - Maratha When're there's talk of Korn during Halloween, I remember Korn's Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery from South Park.
22:36 - 3rdWorld Best atmospheric black I've heard all year. No bullshit samples or nature recordings, just a desolate and bleak guitar playing to get the ambience going. Swiss perfection. [link]
21:48 - 3rdWorld Was just playing the devil's advocate. I love them myself but just the first 3 albums for that matter. Haven't heard the new one in full yet but that one single really sounded well like the old primitive bassy Korn.
Former Dio band members Rudy Sarzo (bass), Simon Wright (drums), Craig Goldy (guitar) and Scott Warren (keyboards) will join forces with singers Tim "Ripper" Owens (Yngwie Malmsteen, Judas Priest, Iced Earth) and Toby Jepson (Little Angels, Gun) to play a number of shows in Europe under the moniker Dio Disciples.
Ronnie James Dio's widow and manager Wendy recently said the following about this project: "There will never be another Ronnie, but we want to keep his music alive and hope you will support the band and become one of the Dio Disciples."
North American tour plans will be announced later.

It is a cash grab, probably, but at least they had something to do with Dio's success and helped him on his musical journey, unlike he who shall not be named, but who's first name is the same as the name of the dumbest character on Friends.
I'd definitely be interested in seeing this, the Dio band with Ripper covering Dio songs sounds like it could be awesome. Im a bit perplexed at Toby Jepson's inclusion in this though... I havent heard anything from him since the Little Angels were popular here in the early-mid 90's. lol
