This collection can truly be called 'The Ultimate Collection' since it contains all the tracks they ever released. On this collection each track can be found as either a studio recording or a live recording.Disc one contains the complete debut album with some tracks from the second and third album. This disc gives the best example of how good Solution is. At their best they make progressive, jazzy music with references to Soft Machine and Supersister. The music is mainly instrumental with few vocals. But when they sing it sounds very nice. Disc two is less interesting. It starts good with a remaining track from 'Cordon Bleu', but with the fourth album Solution made more mainstream music. Most progressive music lovers will loose interest here.
The second part of "Nightmare in the waking state" concept of the Swedish Death Metal Group Solution .45. Christian Älvestam (Miseration, Torchbearer, UNMOORED, ex-Scar Symmetry) and Co. skilfully combine brutal riffs with melancholic passages and grandiose hooks.
Nightmares in the Waking State - Part I is the second studio album by Swedish metal band Solution .45. It turned out to be a monstrous project to assemble and the most complex and most challenging mixing task to date for everyone involved. The new direction contained all the ingredients “For Aeons Past” was known for but with added groove, aggression and darker elements. A dynamic journey from soft moody parts to soaring aggressive, darker elements. “Nightmares In The Waking State - Part I” is again a lesson in modern metal taught by the same people that helped write the book on the genre: crushing mammoth riffs, melancholic passages, infectious hooks, and blistering solos.
Written in 1797, Cherubini's faithful version of Euripides' ancient tragedy is one of the most savage and powerful works of the opera repertoire, relating the cruel vengeance of a wounded woman for whom infanticide seems to be the only solution to her humiliation in love. As a continuation of Gluck's music, Cherubini's work is of boundless emotion, at once a refined, terrifying and desperate portent of a tragic outcome.
For those who don't want or can't afford to plonk out for the Toots & the Maytals' Time Tough: The Anthology, The Very Best Of provides the perfect solution, distilling down that two-CD, 41-track set to a single 19-song disc. There are a few subtle differences, however; for starters this set boasts two different versions of the band's reggae smash "54-46, That's My Number," as well as the original ska version of their Jamaican Song Festival winner "Bam Bam," unlike the anthology, which included only a later remodel. However, the "Never You Change" found on this set is not the trio's original ska hit, but a reggae-fied remake. The rest of the album pulls directly from the anthology, with the disc divided almost evenly between the trio and a solo Hibbert's pre- and post-Island career. Thus, for those who prefer the Maytals' ska and/or reggae hits, this is not the collection for you, as there are much better compilations of those periods. But for fans looking for a larger overview of both the band and Hibbert himself, this is an excellent place to start.
Dutch Neo Progsters Triangle were formed as Square The Circle in 1993 in Rotterdam by guitarist Roland van der Stoep and bassist Jan-Willem Verkerk, both coming from the group Barock, and drummer Paul van der Zwaal, who used to play drums with Dune. The group had an intense live activity around the local area, despite failing to stabilize a solid formation. Eventually things would become better by mid-90's, when keyboardist Martijn Paasschens and singer John Baljeu joined the rest. Two demos were recorded under this line-up, before Baljeu decided to quit in 1997, having strong disagreements around the band's musical direction. The remaining four members, now with Paasschens on lead vocals, recorded their debut in 2000. At the time they were suggested to change their name and Triangle came on surface as a solution, while the band's old name became the title of their debut. Encouraged by the positive reviews…
Mean Streak declare war. The band´s new album Declaration Of War is the first one to feature new lead guitarists Patrik Gardberg (Solution 45) & David Andersson (Soilwork). The epic songwriting combined with the mind blowing twin guitar assault gives you an album that takes their NWOBHM sound to an even higher level than before. The 11 brand new tracks on Declaration Of War contain all the classic trademarks of an 80's style record with breathtaking vocals & skilful musicianship all wrapped together in a very strong and modern sounding production.
