  1. Has anyone listened to this bassist? I think he's damn amazing. Listen to the song Sea of Lies. I believe he's fingerpicking it all. What do you think of this guy?

    Great band,not exactly my cup of tea,but still great.And the bassist is very impressive indeed.I think that in one song from that album (The Divine Wings of Tragedy-this title always reminds me of Priest's second album:)) he plays a tapping solo that is very similar to John Myung's in Metropolis part I-only a little worse IMO:p

    Just let my roommate talk me into seeing them Fri.
    I had never heard of, or anything by them. But from these posts I guess I will enjoy them.. And I thought I was just being nice.
