Wild Horses - Reservation

Sunday, time for a classic!

Today's tune "Reservation" by the British rock band WILD HORSES, taken from the self-titled debut album, co-produced with Trevor Rabin at Konk Studios in London, and released on 14 April 1980 on EMI Records.

It was subsequently issued on CD in Japan in 1993 on Toshiba-EMI, and by the now defunct UK labels Zoom Club in 1999 and Krescendo Records in 2009, respectively, both with the title The First Album. The most recent re-issue came in February 2013, courtesy of UK-based Rock Candy Records, and includes a host of unreleased studios demos as bonus tracks not found on previous re-issues.

The video clip with WILD HORSES perfoming live the 1st song from their debut (and self-titled) album on the TV show All Right Now (remember a song from Free?)

The show was hosted by Phil Lynott (SKID ROW, THIN LIZZY, GRAND SLAM, THE ROCKERS) and also featured RockPile. On the end of the show Phil played the classic THIN LIZZY song Rosalie with the boys in the band.


Jimmy Bain - Bass, lead and background vocals
Brian "Robo" Robertson - Guitar, lead and background vocals
Niel Carter - Guitar, Keyboards, background vocals
Clive Edwards - Drums

Jimmy Bain (R.I.P.) comes from RITCHIE BLACKMOREs RAINBOW, band which he recorded Rainbow Raising (1976) and Rainbow On Stage (1978). After WILD HORSES, he would re-group with his long time friend Ronnie Jamed Dio (R.I.P.) on the band DIO.

Brian Robertson started playing with THIN LIZZY on the record NightLife (1974) and stayed on the band until Live And Dangerous (1978). After WILD HORSES, was on MOTÖRHEAD for the album Another Perfect Day 1983 and then with the scotch singer Frankie Miller.

Niel Carter left WILD HORSES to enter UFO in 1981 (The Wild, The Willing and The Innocent). After the record Making Contact he started playing with Gary Moore and stayed with Gary until 1989 (After the War).

Clive Edwards played the drums for various rock artists including UFO, Pat Travers, Uli Roth Eletric Sun and Bernie Marden S.O.S. to name a few.

The Band WILD HORSES released the record called "The First Album" in 1980 (it was recorded in 1979).

For the second release "Stand Your Ground", 1981, John Lockton (VICTORY) replaced Carter. Then Brian Robertson left the band and was replaced for Laurence Archer (GRAND SLAM, STAMPED and UFO).

By the final days of the band Frank Noon (DEF LEPPARD, Pete Ways's Waysted) was playing the drums on the band...

Jimmy Bain died while on DEF LEPPARDs "Hysteria on the High Seas" cruise. He was performing on the cruise with the group LAST IN LINE. No official cause of death is known at this time, but band members informed fans on the cruise that he had been battling pneumonia for some time.

Here is a bonus clip with LAST IN LINE performing "Invisible". Filmed four days before The Great Jimmy Bain passed away. Live at The Magic City Casino in Miami Florida on January 20, 2016

Lizette & - No More Lies

The industry rockers LIZETTE & have released a new single and lyric video "No More Lies" taken from the upcoming fourth album, set to release in May on Freeside Records/Border.

LIZETTE & continues to conquer new grounds on several levels. The fourth studio album (still without a name) is soon to be completed and marks a new level in the bands progress.

”We have worked much closer as a band in the creation of this album, says Lizette von Panajott. ”We have previously worked under firm dictatorship with me, myself and I at the helm, but I felt it was time to let the boys in a ”little” bit more in the creative process. It has been a super fun journey with many hours spent in RedDoor Studio and we’ll let the result speak for it self”.

Another major change is the bands line up as Micke ”INK” Östling moved on to fly on his own wings last year. Marqz now alone handles the six strings, another contributing factor to the renewed sound.

LIZETTE & will increase their efforts outside of Sweden with coming releases. Their previous nominations in “Rockbjörnen”, peoples choice awards in Sweden, (Breakthrough of the year, Best Live Band and Best Hardrock/Metal) is something the band proudly takes with them in their new efforts.

”The fact that we will work harder outside of Sweden does not in any way mean that we will slow down in Sweden. The tour this year will be bigger then any previous tour since the band started. It just means we will work harder and add territories. No pain – no gain, says bands bass player Tomas.

The video to ”No More Lies” will be released shortly and you can expect more singles and more craziness from the band before the album is released in May.

Lizette von Panajott – Vocals
Tomas – Bass
Marqz – Guitar/Vocals
AleX – Drums

Secrets of the Sky - Angel in Vines

SECRETS OF THE SKY is a US band that's blending blackened progressive doom with post metal atmospherics and some deep emotions.

The band form in the Oakland, CA area in 2010 and have spent that past half decade building a reputation as one of the finest underground metal acts. They've patiently and deliberately developed a unique sound that melds psychedelic, progressive atmospheres with heavy doom. With their live show, they work to create a mood and offer an experience, a true companion piece to their albums.

SECRETS OF THE SKYs debut album, To Sail Black Waters was released on Kolony Records in 2013. Half of 2013 was devoted to touring, and lead to a split with GODHUNTER. In 2014, two new tracks were recorded and released as part of the cleverly titled split: GH/OST:S. The cassette split was released during the SECRETS OF THE SKY and GODHUNTER tour that June, followed by a deluxe LP and digital release in September via The Compound / Battleground Records. To cap of 2014, the band performed as part of Southwest Terror Fest (NEUROSIS, SUNN O))), PELICAN, GOATSNAKE, etc.), and Salt Lake City's LuciFest. After the conclusion of their 2014 touring schedule, Secrets of the Sky dedicated their time to writing and recording their sophomore effort.

It was at this point that the band has come to the attention of Metal Blade Records, which led to a recording contract ensuring a truly global reach for their new record, Pathway. Juan Urteaga of Trident Studios engineered, mixed, mastered and co-produced Pathway with Secrets of the Sky. Writing for the album was a smooth process, according to the band. Vocalist and keyboardist Garett Gazay had the concept in mind as early as 2013. The band comments, "We knew we wanted to write the music sequentially and in the order that the songs appear on the finished album. Doing it like that allowed for us to control the overall flow from beginning to end." Sonically, SECRETS OF THE SKY was aiming for a massive, clean, and organic sounding production. Much time was invested in obtaining big drums sounds and the focus was on single performance takes throughout the process.

"Pathway" features Garett Gazay belting out monstrous growls, as well as soothing clean vocals, that compliment perfectly the guitar work of Andrew Green and Clayton Bartholomew. Bassist Ryan Healy and drummer Lance Lea round out the lineup; their playing complements the soundscapes and augments them with their distinctive voices. The result is an ambitious foray into conceptual storytelling, coupled with emotional music full of peaks and valleys. This is a metal record, to be sure, but more importantly, it sounds like an album of music. This is not a random sequencing of songs or a search for a "hit" single; the tracks all have their place in the story, and the cuts in between actually drive the narrative through sound effects and ambience. Pathway is an experience to be had, as well as a record to merely be heard. Fans will hear this album in the live environment; the band plans to carry over some of the transitional ambient cuts to their live performance, and they'll achieve maximum guitar layering through loop pedals, along with a light show to create an atmosphere to completely consume the listener.

Today's tune "Angel in Vines" is taken from the album "Pathway", released 2015. The video is directed and edited by Andrew Nethery. Starring Melissa May, Zack Warren. Second camera: Chito Tafy, Grip: Pete Hermes.

The Moth Gatherer - The Earth Is The Sky

Monday, New week, time to present "Record Of The Week".

"The Earth Is The Sky" is the second album from Swedish atmospheric sludge doom metallers THE MOTH GATHERER. To follow up their debut "A Bright Celestial Light", released in 2013, they took their time to focus on the new chapter and devoted two years to to perfect their vision.

"The Earth Is The Sky" have strong sludge and post-rock influences with an mature and multi-dimensional atmosphere that I just love. That these guys have created an solid album is no doubt. The album have a progressive approach with heavy hypnotic passages and slow riffs that puts the listener into a trance. Like the first wonderful tune "Pale Explosions" is a real masterpiece. With high emotions that you almost get lost in the world of anger and melancholia. Many turns it takes and hits its crescendo at 6:20 and I feel the goosebumps grooving, magic. The album continues in the same path, a perfect mix of slow and heavy with impressive tunes and excellent song writing that makes a world of The Earth Is The Sky.

If you get it on CD or digital, put on repeat and you will get lost a few days.

"The Earth Is The Sky" features some notable guests, including David Johansson (KONGH); Wacian (CODE); The Cuukoo (TERRA TENEBROSA); Thomas Jäger (MONOLORD). The album was recorded over a period of two years in three different studios and mixed & mastered by Karl Daniel Lidén (DOZER, THE OLD WIND, SWITCHBLADE, TERRA TENEBROSA). The artwork and layout has been made by SCG, while Swedish painter, EJG, created an exclusive painting for each of the six tracks the album features.

THE MOTH GATHERER from Stockholm, Sweden, formed in 2008. The band consisted of Victor Wegeborn (Vocals, Guitars & Electronics), Alex Stjernfeldt (Vocals & Bass), Svante Karlsson (Drums) and Ronny Westphal (Guitars). In April 2013 they released their debut album "A Bright Celestial Light" on Agonia Records and their second album, "The Earth Is The Sky" was released November 27, 2015

About the name "THE MOTH GATHERER" Alex commented in an interview: "When you lose someone, a lot of things in your world is upside down, and it’s hard to see something positive. You also get a lot of questions about why? More or less, we fumble in darkness. Moths always searches for a source of light, like you do. So for me, the name stands for a search for hope".

Today's tune "Pale Explosions" is taken from "The Earth Is The Sky", enjoy!

Glenn Frey - You Belong To The City

Sunday, time for a classic.

Today's tune "You Belong to the City" is a song written by Glenn Frey (of the EAGLES) and Jack Tempchin, and recorded by Frey during his solo career. It was written specifically for the television show Miami Vice in 1985. The song nearly reached the top of the charts, peaking at number two (behind STARSHIPs "We Built This City") on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, although it did reach the top of the Billboard Top Rock Tracks chart.

This song, along with Jan Hammer's "Miami Vice Theme", helped the Miami Vice soundtrack album reach the top spot of the Billboard 200 chart for 11 weeks in 1985, making it the best-selling album of the year and the most successful TV soundtrack of all time. While Frey performed this song live when touring with the EAGLES, he stopped doing so in 2005. A version of the EAGLES performing the song can be found on their DVD Farewell Tour I: Live from Melbourne released that year.

Glenn Lewis Frey (November 6, 1948 – January 18, 2016) was an American singer, songwriter, producer and actor, best known as a founding member of rock band the EAGLES. During the 1970s, Frey played guitar with the band, as well as piano and keyboards. Alongside Don Henley, Frey was one of the primary singers of the EAGLES; he sang lead vocals on songs such as "Take It Easy", "Peaceful Easy Feeling", "Tequila Sunrise", "Already Gone", "Lyin' Eyes", "New Kid in Town" and "Heartache Tonight".

After the breakup of the EAGLES in 1980, Frey embarked on a successful solo career. He released his debut album, No Fun Aloud, in 1982 and went on to record Top 40 hits "The One You Love", "Smuggler's Blues", "Sexy Girl", "The Heat Is On", "You Belong to the City", "True Love", "Soul Searchin'" and "Livin' Right".

As a member of the EAGLES, Frey won six Grammy Awards, and five American Music Awards. The EAGLES were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, the first year they were nominated. Consolidating his solo recordings and those with the Eagles, Frey released 24 Top 40 singles on the Billboard Hot 100.

On January 18, 2016, Frey died at the age of 67 in New York City of complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia, while recovering from intestinal surgery.

Today's tune "You Belong to the City" for you Glenn, rest in piece.

The tune is taken from the Miami Vice Soundtrack. All instruments were performed by Frey except the saxophone part played by studio musician Bill Bergman, as well as the drum track by Frey's long-time drummer, Michael Huey. The song was recorded at Fool On The Hill studios, New York City, at the end of 1984. The synthesizer used in this song was a Yamaha DX7.

Cattle Decapitation - Manufactured Extinct

"The Anthropocence Extinction" marks CATTLE DECAPITATIONs seventh studio album and sees the band expand on their growing flavor of death metal. Slowly abandoning the grind elements that dominated their early sound, the band heads into more expansive territories best represented by the opening song and today's tune "Manufactured Extinct."

CATTLE DECAPITATION is an American deathgrind band from San Diego, California, formed in 1996. The band's current line-up includes vocalist Travis Ryan, guitarist Josh Elmore, drummer Dave McGraw, and bassist Derek Engemann.

The last record, "Monolith of Inhumanity", dealt with the future of Earth, if mankind keeps its current style of life. "The Anthropocene Extinction" deals with the results of mankind's influence on the environment, such as the Great Pacific garbage patch.

Machines to make machines fabricating the end of all living things Sacrificing all morality, the ends never justify the means

Technology defines the ages - Our human history burns its own pages 

That's part of the lyrics of today's tune, enjoy!

Suede - Pale Snow

The English alternative rock band SUEDE are back with a new album to be release in the end of this week. "Night Thoughts" is the seventh studio album. Produced by long-time collaborator Ed Buller, the album will be released on 22 January 2016. The album will be accompanied by a feature film, directed by Roger Sargent.

The record deals with a lot of familial themes – life, death, love, anguish and despair; themes that are expanded upon in its visual companion, providing a study of how those elements affect the human psyche. It resonated with me for many reasons, not least because my mother passed away a few days after I started writing a story for the film. The film starts with a man drowning in the waters of a deserted beach at night, as he fights for life, his mind plays out the events that lead him to be there.

Mat Osman talked about the writing process:

Neil and Richard pretty much wrote a record, they wrote about 45 minutes of music, lots of which ran into each other and lots of different themes re-emerged. We went to Belgium which were we started recording and basically recorded everything without Bret having any melodies or any words, which he’s never done before, so it was a bit of a leap in the dark. And then he sat down to write to the whole thing and we had no idea if it was going to work, it hasn’t ended up the same, uh since then we‘ve added about 4 songs and cut quite alot of it and moved stuff around. It always started off as a record that was influenced by film music and stuff like that, the way you can have quite meandering pieces and scenes that reemerge, theres lots of stuff on the record that is made up of bits and pieces of other songs.

The formed in London in 1989 and currently consists of singer Brett Anderson, guitarist Richard Oakes, bass player Mat Osman, drummer Simon Gilbert and keyboardist/rhythm guitarist Neil Codling. Having split up in 2003, the Coming Up/Head Music line-up of the band reformed in 2010. The band's original guitarist Bernard Butler left the band in 1994.

SUEDE are:

Brett Anderson - vocals
Mat Osman - bass guitar
Simon Gilbert - drums, percussion
Richard Oakes - lead guitar
Neil Codling - piano, synthesizer, rhythm guitar, backing vocals, additional production

Other personnel

Ed Buller – production
Andy Hughes – engineer
Paul-Edouard Laurendeau – production
Cenzo Townsend – mixing
Joe MaCann – assistant engineer
Tony Cousins – mastering

Today's tune "Pale Snow" is taken from the upcoming album "Night Thoughts"

The Picturebooks - E.L.I.Z.A.B.E.T.H.

THE PICTUREBOOKS create a sound that is thick with sweat and desert dust. The guitars are fat and covered in a layer of grime whilst the drums hammer with a Bonham like intensity. The music is dark, sombre yet somehow uplifting as they pepper the swampy riffs and thundering, simplistic drumming with choruses that resonate and offer the listener the chance to sing along.

THE PICTUREBOOKS are a German alternative rock/blues rock duo (Fynn Claus Grabke and Philipp Mirtschink) who formed after meeting a skate park. The band released the albums "Artificial Tears" and a "List of People To Kill" independently in Europe before signing to RidingEasy Records in 2014. "Imaginary Horse" was recorded in the same garage where they regularly refurbish and repair motorcycles and choppers.

 Today's tune "E.L.I.Z.A.B.E.T.H." is taken from the band's album "Imaginary Horse". The video is filmed and edited by: Claus Grabke, Actress: Zilah Drawn. The video was filmed on location at Paul revere school Los Angeles, Silverado, Costa mesa

Baroness - Purple

New week, time to present "Record Of The Week"

This week we have the colour of fresh bruises "Purple", the fourth studio album by the Savannah foursome sludge metal band BARONESS on the agenda. An album that is pretty remarkable that the guys manage to heal so good after the devastation of the big accident back in 2012. The recovery is the new creation "Purple".

The album is much shorter than the previous album "Yellow & Green" but this is stronger and more precise. It's partly like an mix between the "Red" & "Blue", not as heavy but more accurate. "Purple" is packed with a strong technicality, pounding momentums that you will remember. It's catchy and crazy, just like I want it.

If you give "Purple" a spin you will hear the return of the sludger boys in the opener "Morningstar" where the riffs are powerful and Baizley are standing in the center, singing better than ever. And the record continues the serve excellent rockers like "Shock Me", "Chlorine & Wine", "Kerosene", "Try to Disappear" to the instrumental jazzy masterpiece "Fugue"

The record have progressive flow with a more grown up sludge with chunky power pop licks and some real killer thrashy riffs. The song craft are really well done. I just love this record and I'm sure I will play some more tune here soon.

My Version of Purple
 Summary: YOU NEED THIS!

Today's tune "Desperation Burns" is taken from "Purple", enjoy it!

Harry Chapin - Cats in the Cradle

Sunday, time for a classic song!

Today's tune "Cat's in the Cradle" is a 1974 folk rock song by Harry Chapin from the album Verities & Balderdash. The single topped the Billboard Hot 100 in December 1974. As Chapin's only No. 1 hit song, it became the best known of his work and a staple for folk rock music.

Chapin's recording of the song was nominated for the 1975 Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2011.

The song's lyrics began as a poem written by Harry's wife, Sandra "Sandy" Gaston; the poem itself was inspired by the awkward relationship between her first husband, James Cashmore, and his father, John, a politician who served as Brooklyn Borough President. She was also inspired by a country music song she had heard on the radio. Harry also said the song was about his own relationship with his son, Josh, admitting, "Frankly, this song scares me to death."

The song is told in the first-person by a father who is too busy with work to spend time with his son. Each time the son asks him to join in childhood activities, the father issues vague promises of spending time together in the future. While disappointed, the son accepts his excuses and yearns to "be like you, Dad." The first verse tells of his absence at his son's birth and walking, as "there were planes to catch and bills to pay"; the second verse relates the father buying the son a baseball as a birthday present but likewise declining to play catch.

The final two verses reverse the roles. In the third verse, the son returns home from college and his father finally makes time to spend some time with him. Instead, the son just wants to go out and asks the father for the car keys. The fourth verse advances the story quite some time, when the father is long retired and his son has started his own family some distance away. The father makes a phone call to his son and invites him for a visit, but the son has his own issues with his job and his children are sick with "the flu." He tells his father he will visit him if he "can find the time" and says "it's been sure nice talking to you" before he says goodbye. The final two lines of the song reflect the father's observation of what has happened: “ And as I hung up the phone it occurred to me, he'd grown up just like me. My boy was just like me. ”

The song's chorus references several childhood things: The Cat's in the Cradle string game, silver spoons that are given to babies as christening gifts, and the nursery rhymes, Little Boy Blue, and Man in the Moon.

Harry Forster Chapin (December 7, 1942 – July 16, 1981) was an American singer-songwriter best known for his folk rock songs including "Taxi," "W*O*L*D," "Sniper", "Flowers Are Red," and the No. 1 hit "Cat's in the Cradle." Chapin was also a dedicated humanitarian who fought to end world hunger; he was a key participant in the creation of the Presidential Commission on World Hunger in 1977. In 1987, Chapin was posthumously awarded the Congressional Gold Medal for his humanitarian work.

In 1992, the hard rock band UGLY KID JOE included a cover of "Cat's in the Cradle" on their debut album America's Least Wanted. The cover was issued as a single in 1993 and peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100, the group's highest ever position on that chart.

Today's tune "Cat's in the Cradle" is taken from the fourth studio album "Verities & Balderdash" by the American singer/songwriter Harry Chapin, released in 1974.

The Lumberjack Feedback - A Whisper to the Thunder

Lille is a city in the north of France, almost at the border to Belgium. Lille (Rijsel in Flemish) may be France's most underrated major city. In recent decades this once-grimy industrial metropolis, its economy based on declining industries, has shrugged off its grey image and transformed itself into a glittering and self-confident cultural and commercial hub. Highlights for the visitor include an attractive old town with a strong Flemish accent, three renowned art museums, stylish shopping, some excellent dining options and a cutting-edge, student-driven nightlife scene. The Lillois have a well-deserved reputation for friendliness – and are so proud of being friendly that they often mention it!

About the Music scene I do not know much, but I guess there is a few bands.

The instrumental sludge rockers THE LUMBERJACK FEEDBACK is one band from Lille that plays heavy & powerful guitars riffs, driven by two drummers and a bass guitar player as massive rythm section, where you can feel the influence of PELICAN, NEUROSIS and SUNN O))).

Today's tune "A Whisper to the Thunder" is taken from "Hand of Glory", released in June 2013

It also marks the fifth time Bob Rock had produced a CULT album.

They gained a dedicated following in the UK in the mid-1980s as a post-punk/gothic rock band with singles such as "She Sells Sanctuary", before breaking mainstream in the US in the late 1980s as a hard rock band with singles such as "Love Removal Machine" and "Fire Woman". The band fuse a "heavy metal revivalist" sound with the "pseudo-mysticism ... of the DOORS and the guitar-orchestrations of LED ZEPPELIN ... while adding touches of post-punk goth rock". Since their earliest form in Bradford during 1981, the band have had various line-ups; the longest-serving members are vocalist Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy, the band's two songwriters.

David Bowie - Lazarus

Legendary musician, innovator, fashion icon, rule breaker, rock star and pop culture maker David Bowie has passed at the age of 69, after succumbing to an 18-month battle with cancer. .

News of his passing came as a great shock to me and all his fans all over the world, as Bowie kept his liver cancer out of the headlines. His death comes just two days after the release of his 29th album "Blackstar" which came out on his birthday, January 8th.

So today we play his last Video and single "Lazarus" from his latest album "Blackstar" "Blackstar" (stylised as ★) is the twenty-sixth and final studio album by English musician David Bowie. It was released through Bowie's ISO Records label on 8 January 2016, Bowie's 69th birthday and just two days before his death. The title track was released as a single on 19 November 2015 and was used as the opening music for the television series The Last Panthers.

According to Bowie's producer Tony Visconti, the lyrics and video of Lazarus and other songs on the album were intended to be a self-epitaph, a commentary on Bowie's own impending death.

The official music video for "Lazarus", featuring a shorter edit of the song lasting just over four minutes. The video was directed by Johan Renck, who also directed the music video for Bowie's previous single, "Blackstar". The video is shown in a 1:1 aspect ratio and prominently features Bowie, as the "Button-Eyes" character from the "Blackstar" video, lying on a deathbed. Bowie also plays a poet, simultaneously tormented and inspired by the skull from the "Blackstar" video.

Today's tune is for You Bowie, Rest In Piece!

Megadeth - Holy Wars... The Punishment Due

Today we present category seven (The song that represents the musical best decade) taken from the annual hard rock evening that always occur on eve of Twelfth Night.

Category seven, felt pretty easy. I was debating with myself whether the music I listen to had its starting point. Was it the 60's or 70's, yes that is the question that went around in my head so I had to make it more simple, so the style that I got caught by at the first was during the 70's when BLACK SABBATH kicked my ass with their heavy rock, LED ZEPPELIN with the beautiful rock and AC/DCs more classical rock, that was great times indeed. So my pick for the evening was the 70's tune "Supernaut", by British heavy metal band BLACK SABBATH. The tune is taken from the fourth studio album "Vol. 4", released in September 1972.

Today's tune is taken from the 90's, a choice made by Magnus Ö who think the 90's is the best musical decade.

This years line up of categories and my choices:

1. Joy of Play and Swing. - CLUTCH "Noble Savage"
2. Best finish/end song. - D-A-D "Laugh 'n' A ½"
3. In The Shadow Of Big Four. - TESTAMENT "Over The Wall"
4. Good although they sing in Swedish. - SKRAECKOEDLAN "Cactus"
5. Best song from the 2015 best album. - TRIBULATION "Melancholia"
6. God Save The Queen. - ACCEPT "London Leatherboys".
7. The song that represents the musical best decade. - BLACK SABBATH "Supernaut"
8. Best right now.

Here are a few of the other tunes that was played during this evening.

ANCIIENTS "Raise The Sun"
TESTAMENT "Down For Life"
VERSE "The New Fury"
OZZY OSBOURNE "I Dont Know" (Live)
D-A-D "Sleeping My Day Away"
BLACK SABBATH "After Forever"
MEGADETH "Holy Wars"
AMULET "The Gauntlet"
IRON MAIDEN "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son"

Today's tune "Holy Wars... The Punishment Due" is the opening track of thrash metal band MEGADETHs 1990 album "Rust in Peace". The song has an unusual structure, shifting at 2:26 after an acoustic bridge by Marty Friedman to a different, slower and heavier section called "The Punishment Due", before speeding up again. The entire song is commonly referred to as "Holy Wars".

Tomorrow we present the last category "Best right now".
