The video for the first track

Such

[niclas]:

the sound was more muscular, very mey, very big, and he was seeinging himself,

[niclas]:

and

[niclas]:

to this day it holds up,

[niclas]:

[niclas]:

a producer who friend

[niclas]:

He loved his his way of guitar playing, and

[niclas]:

this band particular, Also, and he, me.

[niclas]:

If if you listen to the refge, d d Bo

[niclas]:

svensson]:

svensson]:

I mean

Carmen apy join Sykes. Yeah,

[niclas]:

And it's very very.

[niclas]:

me,

[niclas]:

your face.

svensson]:

heavy stuff.

svensson]:

That's really cool

bowyer]:

Mhm, Mhm,

[niclas]:

Have you

svensson]:

man.

[niclas]:

heard Phil? Have your hear this album?

bowyer]:

you know, Blue Murders, one of those bands I could never really get into. I

bowyer]:

tried

bowyer]:

just for I don't know. there was something about. I might, and my, since I'm a

bowyer]:

lot older now I might give it a second listen or a third

[niclas]:

Yeah,

bowyer]:

listen. whatever it is at this point, and and check it out, I might. I might

bowyer]:

appreciate it these days, but uh, yeah, back in the day I couldn't really get

bowyer]:

into them.

[niclas]:

no,

[niclas]:

um,

[niclas]:

here's another album which I

[niclas]:

is. Sometimes it iss just strange with this when it comes to music and have you see

[niclas]:

music and how how it moves you and how it affects you in some way or another, but

[niclas]:

some time

[niclas]:

you bump into bards

[niclas]:

or staic. This is Co. but don't I

[niclas]:

don't really understand it. E.

[niclas]:

Iundstood this band kind of, but it was eighty eight. I think no, eighty nine

[niclas]:

something like that and Ive had a feeling of. I heard this before, but I really

[niclas]:

loved the chorus and the melodies. E, and how it blended in. But to day when I

[niclas]:

listened to it I can feel a vibe of gothic kind of stuff

[niclas]:

into the music. Um.

[niclas]:

but

[niclas]:

I really love this from the first,

[niclas]:

and sometimes

[niclas]:

it was more like when I was a teenr. I I bought maybe albums by the look of it. Oh,

[niclas]:

this is cool. Yeah, something like that, but I loved this album.

svensson]:

Oh,

bowyer]:

Kingdom, come, there, you go. Okay,

svensson]:

yeah. he asked. Yeah,

bowyer]:

yeah, yeah,

svensson]:

that's a great band.

[niclas]:

I en Bob, Rock amazing

[niclas]:

on Mason, and this was of course about. It's lesscepling. It's yes, ridiculous not

svensson]:

Yeah. yeah, it's amazing.

[niclas]:

to say anything else, but how day uh, blended in with some other stuff,

svensson]:

Yeah.

[niclas]:

and um,

[niclas]:

I got to buy his earlier band Lenny Wolf. His name is Yeah,

[niclas]:

Stone Wall or something like that.

svensson]:

okay,

[niclas]:

And then I understood Kingdom Com even more because that was kind of the same

[niclas]:

environment into.

svensson]:

yeah, yeah, yeah,

[niclas]:

But I am a feel. I mean living on a touch.

[niclas]:

pushing hard

[niclas]:

now forever after that chorus is a. It could be the mission,

bowyer]:

Mhm, Mhm,

svensson]:

yeah, it's It's great stuff.

svensson]:

yeah, it's It's great stuff.

[niclas]:

So sometimes it's really funny to pick up the old fairy albums. And you hear Wow,

[niclas]:

they will listen to this kind of stuff there were influenced. You understand it in

[niclas]:

another way

svensson]:

Yeah. yeah, yeah,

[niclas]:

to day or

[niclas]:

because

svensson]:

they

[niclas]:

you are more open minded. Think

svensson]:

got. Yeah, they got compared to Let ▁zeppin. a lot, but I, I don't think

svensson]:

that they,

svensson]:

some people said. Well, it's a rip off. I don't think that it's like you

svensson]:

said Nlas. It's a mixture of everything and they did it so well. I think

[niclas]:

Yeah,

svensson]:

so it's

svensson]:

really good stuff.

bowyer]:

Mhm,

[niclas]:

really good stuff.

[niclas]:

and I could easily

[niclas]:

pull up five copies of a pain killer Banel, or Def of the very for with vaance to

[niclas]:

Bri hisne Lo. that's the obvious, Jo. The

svensson]:

yes.

[niclas]:

I remember this so when it came out

[niclas]:

I was

[niclas]:

was shocked,

[niclas]:

and this was in the middle of that

[niclas]:

grung.

[niclas]:

And then you have Paerra. By what had said, All this hard, Cobat,

svensson]:

Mhm.

[niclas]:

and all of a sudden,

[niclas]:

and

[niclas]:

I am and God came out with an album which

[niclas]:

[niclas]:

stir for

[niclas]:

I. I know that this album Uh

[niclas]:

made people.

[niclas]:

Ah, no, I' shore, or yeah, Fcking, awesome

[niclas]:

and I'm really happy to get at the final. Of course,

[niclas]:

great song

[niclas]:

production is stellar. Bob broke again

[niclas]:

and I know that this album,

[niclas]:

and

[niclas]:

along with the black album has been

[niclas]:

in a lot of studios. Hey, how did I do with this Bas

[niclas]:

That

[niclas]:

they

[niclas]:

did something else on this album And I really like it a lot. and I

[niclas]:

really loud.

svensson]:

Oh, yeah,

svensson]:

yes. yes,

[niclas]:

It's not the same. It

svensson]:

no, no,

[niclas]:

its darker. It's more hard

svensson]:

yeah, yeah,

[niclas]:

edges on it,

[niclas]:

but it's so fucking good.

svensson]:

yeah, Moly crew with John Robbi,

bowyer]:

Mhm,

svensson]:

I, I mean it's it's for me. it's it's not monthly Cwe, but it's but it's

svensson]:

I mean. I know what you're getting at cause I love that album. I it

svensson]:

myself, and I'm looking looking for it on Viy. I only got the C. D, but

svensson]:

Hoan's holiday,

svensson]:

and and so forth it's great song, And and John

svensson]:

junk Robbie fits right in there. It's so it's so weird to to to to

svensson]:

to gras at its motherly crew who is backing him up. If you know what I

svensson]:

mean.

[niclas]:

Yeah, yeah,

svensson]:

It's

svensson]:

I think it's great. I think it's great. It's one of their

svensson]:

better ones, actually, cause I like the two too. I mean too fast for

svensson]:

love and Chattow the devil

svensson]:

And this one it's It's up there.

[niclas]:

Doctor Filwood was aable.

svensson]:

Yeah, yeah,

svensson]:

it,

[niclas]:

How do you feel feel about Thisra, something to go to, Or Ah,

bowyer]:

I. I stopped listening to Motley Crew when they put out theater pain,

[niclas]:

All right,

bowyer]:

So so

[niclas]:

I hear you. I hear.

bowyer]:

yeah, yeah, so the the John Karabi thing,

bowyer]:

I didn't think it was bad, but it wasn't necessarily

bowyer]:

like Mike said. I wasn't really motley Cre and I had trouble trying to

bowyer]:

reconcile what I was hearing with that record,

bowyer]:

so I don't know. it was one that I never really kind of went back to once. I

bowyer]:

heard it,

[niclas]:

Okay.

svensson]:

but the

bowyer]:

but you know

svensson]:

production I think is great. You should try to listen to itcause. I

svensson]:

mean, listen to songs like, like I was saying agains, holiday

svensson]:

music and

[niclas]:

How to music,

svensson]:

I mean,

[niclas]:

Uncle Jack, an apple

svensson]:

yeah,

[niclas]:

Miss is still disagreeable.

svensson]:

really great stuff.

[niclas]:

Yeah, it's

[niclas]:

a hop album.

svensson]:

it is.

[niclas]:

Some different sorts of stuff, but it's veryable.

svensson]:

And and for people listening in right now, this is the sounds of vinyl

svensson]:

Pocast, And we got Nicholas Enngling from from Infames, And we that

svensson]:

going through his vinyl collection at the moment and you have to see it

svensson]:

as on video, man,

bowyer]:

Yeah. Yeah, you got to you. Don't listen to this thing. Go watch it.

svensson]:

No, no, no, you have to see. Alas,

bowyer]:

You have to watch it.

svensson]:

with his wall of records behind him. It's it's great

bowyer]:

It's nuts.

svensson]:

stuff, Nelace, Oh, man,

[niclas]:

Are we live?

svensson]:

yes,

svensson]:

we are

bowyer]:

No, we're not live live.

svensson]:

now

svensson]:

were recording.

bowyer]:

We could go Al we could go Al,

svensson]:

We could go li. But

[niclas]:

any?

[niclas]:

I have as soft spot for

[niclas]:

a war

[niclas]:

music and melodic stuff. I love Meies and

svensson]:

yeah,

bowyer]:

Mhm.

[niclas]:

stuff like that

[niclas]:

again. It's so cool to go back in time

[niclas]:

and

[niclas]:

just be a know. ha out.

[niclas]:

Have you heard this Al? I haven. I

[niclas]:

talk about as we do now

[niclas]:

and there's always someone who brings out something that you never

[niclas]:

heard before, or at least heard off before? Butty never got the time around to check

[niclas]:

it out. But or you just missed it. You know it's easy to do that

svensson]:

Mhm.

[niclas]:

And that's the beauty of being a music lover and a vinyl lord. I think,

[niclas]:

Because it's important to feel

[niclas]:

to feel

[niclas]:

curious about music. And what's up be you know? Have this

[niclas]:

antannas out for music? Anyway?

[niclas]:

I was at the friend's house and a playm. Have you heard this band?

[niclas]:

I think I cant know that that has some hits on empt. T. v.

[niclas]:

Yes, Yes, something like that. but listen to this

[niclas]:

because the guitar player

[niclas]:

is one of my favorites.

[niclas]:

He a

[niclas]:

awesome. awesome. Very okay. I, I have to give him a shot.

[niclas]:

Wow, the song of the song. At the song, the whole album was like. What the hell have

[niclas]:

a missed and need that one?

[niclas]:

Ah, first, I ordered it on C. V and I got it,

[niclas]:

and then later Ro. okay, I. I paid a fair amount of money for this one but it's so

[niclas]:

worth it. Oh,

[niclas]:

svensson]:

No, I don't think it was this album. A later on, but

[niclas]:

Ah, okay.

svensson]:

[niclas]:

[niclas]:

can imagine.

[niclas]:

All right.

[niclas]:

Did we talk on this about these albums Last time. I don't know. I. I just go for it.

[niclas]:

It doesn't matter.

svensson]:

Go for

[niclas]:

Okay

svensson]:

a man. Go for it.

[niclas]:

was

[niclas]:

okay? This another album? This is released at eighty eight, I think, or eighty nine.

[niclas]:

Something like that,

[niclas]:

and during that time period it was a lot of a war, a melodic hard rock and the man,

[niclas]:

the Legend,

[niclas]:

The The.

[niclas]:

the amazing

[niclas]:

guitar player.

[niclas]:

I am.

[niclas]:

He tried to. I. I can imagine him. Okay, let's try something more melodic. Let let's

[niclas]:

have more keyboards. Let keep it more airy and you can you.

[niclas]:

Let's have it airy. More more air into it. The more bigger

[niclas]:

epic songs.

[niclas]:

They have done it before, but not maybe in this kinda way, I think, since I was

[niclas]:

seeing the Um.

[niclas]:

the the title track first at the M. T. V. I was

[niclas]:

what.

[niclas]:

It was A little bit different.

svensson]:

that that's the world we're looking for. Yeah,

[niclas]:

it's

[niclas]:

He's trying to be melodic. but

svensson]:

yeah,

[niclas]:

it's so much evil behind it. You can still figure that Ah, oh, y, don't do any more

bowyer]:

Mhm, Yeah,

[niclas]:

still vicious and evil,

[niclas]:

and

bowyer]:

Mhm,

[niclas]:

Australian present. ▁qui,

[niclas]:

Uh,

[niclas]:

Bob rock again.

svensson]:

Yeah, Borb, up once again, I heard Jamie Stewart was place based on on

svensson]:

that album. He got so tired of touring after those that he, I think he

svensson]:

was on ceremony to, but he. he just ▁quit and moved moved back to

svensson]:

England, and and and Adrian Smith were maiden. He had to force him to be

svensson]:

with him. playing in in like a solo project that Adrian had. Yeah,

svensson]:

because he. he didn't want anything to do with with music anymore, Sir

svensson]:

Edor said, Well, come home, man, Jamie. you're a great bass player. So

svensson]:

he, he was in a couple of bands W with Adrian, and released some

[niclas]:

Okay,

svensson]:

some solo stuff with with with Adan

svensson]:

from. I think it was

[niclas]:

it's a

[niclas]:

epigam And there you have this

svensson]:

nineties. It is.

svensson]:

yeah.

svensson]:

Oh man.

[niclas]:

in my neck of woods. To use your words,

[niclas]:

Everyone was into heavily into Ga roses, and I couldn't understand it

[niclas]:

right.

[niclas]:

And until I pumped into

[niclas]:

Tem,

svensson]:

yeah.

[niclas]:

that's

svensson]:

yeah.

[niclas]:

I love

svensson]:

like we said that' Not there was not a bad song on that album. It's I

bowyer]:

Mhm, No,

svensson]:

mean. it's epic from from start to finish.

[niclas]:

it is

bowyer]:

Mhm.

[niclas]:

it is.

bowyer]:

those guys are. I mean, they're still going strong, too. They' still putting

bowyer]:

out quality

svensson]:

Yeah,

bowyer]:

stuff. They're just such a great. great ba.

[niclas]:

Yeah,

[niclas]:

definitely,

[niclas]:

I mean. I can go on with the albums.

svensson]:

you could.

[niclas]:

I can get one. I have one more head,

svensson]:

Okay,

[niclas]:

which makes sense when we' talked about

[niclas]:

Ba, or artists

[niclas]:

again, Lookck box.

[niclas]:

I heard the previous albums on Rock box. I think the was really fond of this bound

[niclas]:

that they always play them,

[niclas]:

and I think I was down at the local mall

[niclas]:

from Naori, with my mom helping up with the groceries and stuff, and I, I is going

[niclas]:

to go into the record store and I just flipp for the records, and wow, he is. I need

[niclas]:

to have this one

[niclas]:

mom can, of course bite,

[niclas]:

and this,

[niclas]:

this way of guitar playing and writing

[niclas]:

writing music is quite similar,

[niclas]:

dark

[niclas]:

evil sounding,

[niclas]:

and the vocalist is really pushing. It is pushing it to the edge,

[niclas]:

and

[niclas]:

I think they call it Dark Medal, at some point, but

[niclas]:

the refrege, the vibe, Uh, I never get tired of this one.

[niclas]:

It's amazing

bowyer]:

Oh yeah.

bowyer]:

yeah. yeah,

svensson]:

savotage,

bowyer]:

sabotage.

bowyer]:

fucking a. Yeah. one of my favorite

[niclas]:

it is.

bowyer]:

beds.

[niclas]:

it's

[niclas]:

again. It's Paulneil who produced the album, and of course regular, did the guest

[niclas]:

vocals on Strange Wings that we talked about earlier, But the reftch that the melody

[niclas]:

is on the the haunting vib from this one is just

bowyer]:

Mhm, Mhm,

[niclas]:

something else.

svensson]:

cool great stuff.

[niclas]:

I love it.

bowyer]:

Yes,

svensson]:

right

bowyer]:

they.

bowyer]:

that that record is a great record too. Yeah.

svensson]:

bowyer]:

There you go.

svensson]:

svensson]:

svensson]:

when when you like collecting albums all the time, like like you,

svensson]:

svensson]:

what you should check out. So you get some stuff going on here or that I

svensson]:

want to check out.

bowyer]:

Yeah, definitely

svensson]:

That's really really great stuff.

[niclas]:

svensson]:

[niclas]:

Do I need all? No, I don't. ne. But these albums

[niclas]:
