Tim Ripper Owens "Play My Game" is absolute required listening. He recruits a who's who of 80's metal Gods and pretends like the last 25 years never happened. Here's a partial list of the dudes playing on the album:

Steve Stevens (Idol)
Bruce Kulick (KISS)
Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake)
Dave Ellefson (Megadeath)
Billy Sheehan (DLR)
Rudy Sarzo (QR and Whitesnake)
Simon Wright (AC/DC)

Check it out!

Rudy Sarzo was a QR guy.

This has some Dio fingerprints on it, just so you guys know. I suspect he ghost wrote some songs or something...

I can't believe you posted this!!! It's ironic because my project for school is to do a presentation on the Heavy Metal Culture. That's funny.

I can sum it up for you succinctly: Metal Never Dies!

Bear in mind though that Ripper is more of a purist. This is Metal in the vein of Dio, Priest and Yngwie Malmsteen. Not for the faint of heart pop metal fans who worshiped Bon Jovi and Poison.

What a bunch of crap - I'd rather listen to Stevie Nicks and her throaty voice.

Gold Dust Woman is a trip.

Actually, although I love Priest, I leaned more towards Metallica, Slayer, Exodus, etc. That's what my presentation will be on.

That's refreshing. I'm so sick of the current screaming hatred of the new crap that I don't even bother listening to it anymore. It began with the whole grunge trip & I haven't been interested since.

I agree with ya. Pretty Metal isnt real METAL!!!!

It's not that they're pretty metal, it's that 98% of those people were part of bands that flat-out weren't metal. I'm a fan of every kind of metal. Power, Thrash, Death, Grindcore, classic, ala Maiden & Priest.

The likes of Whitesnake & Quiet Riot are just fluff, 80's rock. AC/DC is great but they're not metal & they never were. This is metal:

Ah, always the contrarian. What a pleasure...

Regardless, the album is very much pure aggressive metal, no glam, no pop, just grinding metal circa early 80's. I can even hear influences from particular songs, like "Jawbreaker" and "The Sentinel" from Priest, and he was definitely influenced by his work with Malmsteen.

As far as the musicians, he also works with guys from Savatage and his other band Beyond Fear (which is uber heavy), Michael Wilton from Queensryche, James Lomenzo from Megadeath, and Vinnie Appice (Dio...incidentally, Rudy Sarzo also played with Dio). I also definitely consider Whitesnake a real heavy metal band.

Rudy is METAL. He's a great bassist, and instructor for that matter. He has quite a resume which also includes touring with Ozzy on Blizzard and Diary, and Yngwie at on point. Those are "metal" imo. As far as the droaning, throaty gargleing of "death metal", ya it's metal instrumentally, but the overall product... I could live without. Lyrics are a part of the whole package for a song, and I find it difficult to get past that vocal garbage, even though some of those guys are pretty great musicians. :noidea:

Mastadon (an Atl band) is one example.

I didn't know he played with them. I stand corrected.

Eh, vocals, in particular lyrics, are the last thing I look for in a band. (especially metal) Melody is the first thing I look for. The only person's lyrics that I really take notice of is Chuck Schuldiner's. They're the most intelligent & inspirational I can think of. (metal or otherwise) As for death metal, the only death metal band I out & out love is Cryptopsy. (& only their first two full length albums)

Incidentally, for those of you who may be Maiden fans, VH1 has been broadcasting a show of a recent Maiden World Tour (it's a DVD, I think) that highlights their best songs. They are getting up there in age (for metal dudes)---what's Bruce Dickinson, 50ish? But they still got it---he can still hit the scream in "Run to the Hills"

I never considered Bon Jovi as metal of any kind... pop or otherwise. Poison just sucks ass... period. :chuckle:

Bon Jovi?
I remember back in the 80s when the DJ on DVE (can't remember his name now) used to introduce the Bon Jovi songs---"Here's Jon Bon Jovi---the Patron Saint of Teenage Girls..."
All due respect to Richie Sambora, but he ain't no Yngwie!
I don't know that I would consider Ted Nugent metal, but he could play, too!

As for Poison---I must admit , I do like some of their songs. Wouldn't consider it metal, tho'

But (and here's the important part), Bret Michaels (Poison's front-man) is from Pittsburgh. The dude's a die-hard I-Bleed-Black-and-Gold Steeler fan. He has a couple of custom-made guitars that are gold with a black neck and have The Logo on them...

You may not like his music, but ya gotta respect the fact that he's as much a part of Steeler Nation as you and me

Not true!

Armored Saint sang about love. This is so beautiful, it almost brings a tear to my eye...

8. Stricken by Fate

Damage to my head, peace stays in the bed
Making love the only thing we can do
Otherwise in our lives, all we do is fight
Never stop enough to call a truce
The only time that you find satisfaction is in our physical play
You love me in the course of the evening but so bitter in the day
Think you'd wipe the smudge, but just carry on the grudge
Nothing gets forgiven from you
Soon I'll lose the cure, and you'll thirst so much more
Somebody fresh I wonder who

Now I think it's time for me to walk straight out the door
And leave you here
But my pride hurts too much for that you
Wouldn't even shed a tear

Got to pack my bags, and leave behind the past
Living with you was worse than hell
Still I feel blue, and I wonder do you
With the look on your face you could never tell

Never thought I'd wish somebody death or I'd feel so much hate
Hopefully you'll get what you deserve and be stricken by fate
I hope that you, you get what you want
That's right
Ahhrrrghh!!!

So did Danzig,
"Die, Die, Die My Darling. Don't utter a single word. Die, Die, Die My Darling. Just shut your pretty mouth. I'll be seeing you again. I'll be seeing you in Hell."

Checking out "Somewhere Back In Time" by Maiden as I type. I noticed they kept the set from "Powerslave"....waste not, want not I guess...LOL.

I remember playing The Trooper in '85 and blowing people away...it's still a viable metal song even after all these years.

Dudes can still very much bring it. They don't move around as much as they did in '84, and there a few more lines on their faces and maybe just a little bit of paunch here and there, but, otherwise these guys are still incredibly gifted musicians. Definitely worth checking out for you metal heads...

They changed stage sets a number of times for the concert depending on what they were singing.

They have a Boeing 757 and Dickinson flies it. I read that they were a HUGE draw on their '08 tour, and it was almost like they never let off at all.
