and probably some others I'm forgetting.
So that's already an odd constellation of music. And while I was into it, it wasn't until I heard Iced Earth's Horror Show around 2005 that I was completely hooked. Proper old-school, slightly thrashy, power metal with amazing songwriting. And that eventually got me into pretty much everything I'm into today.
So yeah, Horror Show for sure. It's still easily among my top 10 records.
Awesome fremetar by wxdruid.
From the discomfort of truth there is only one refuge and that is ignorance. I do not need to be comfortable, and I will not take refuge. I demand to *know*.
So I guess I have an internets? | And a trophy. | And a music cookie (whatever that is).
