Children of the grave is fantastic. As much as I love the song paranoid I got sick of hearing it. Sabbath have soooo many great songs that needed airplay over that tune.

Children of the grave is crushing!! Lord Of This World and Solitude round the album off nicely!

Been really into 80's Synth styled music lately so amongst others, I bought this. I reckon Silvergunner would be pleased :wink: . Only CD mind, not vinyl...

Mixture. going back to some old faves.


Bedouin soundclash - when the night feels my song
The killers - all these things I have done
Greenday - When I come around
Greenday - time of your life
The Killers - read my mind
James - Laid
Dare - Stan Bush
Youve got the touch - Stan Bush
Feeder - just a day
Waterboys - whole of the moon
scorpion - Winds of change
Razorlight - fall to pieces
The jam - town called malice
Fratellis - whistle for the choir
The las - there she goes
Doves - there goes the fear


+ a load of cheesy 80's power ballads and some motown.

have to have some music with a BBQ.

Does anybody have any public spotify playlists they don't mind sharing? Always like to get some new music on the go.

My username is thingonaspring - think you can search by user. But don't expect anything too fancy. :D

Good choice :D

Some others for you to consider.

Dance with the dead.
Quite. Horror theme running through his work. You can tell just buy the artwork.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=f25R9Gl6FWc

Vector hold.
More classic style of 80's synth.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=h6icSrvk73k

Gost.
Great harder hitting tunes. Again a nice horror theme with this newer member of the synth scene. Artwork for this album has a john carpenters the thing vibe to it.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8Rso-kMjoBM

Dan terminus.
Quite a space sci-if type synth. Some mellow mixed with up tempo work.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KjrKrvF7JDA

Carpenter brut.
Very big in the scene. Great tunes.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=wy9r2qeouiQ

There are lots more to discover but I would suggest using bandcamp to listen for free. A lot of the synth artists are there and there is a lot of great music ready to discover.

^^^ Cheers, will check those out :) . So far the only others I have are some slightly more mainstream stuff - The Drive soundtrack and some stuff by 'Nina' who uses 80's synth styled sounds in her music. You might have heard one of her songs in a recent Mercedes C-Class TV ad.

Been really enjoying Night Driving Avenger. Took a me a while to realise that I Ran to the Arcade was an 8-bit rendition of A Flock of Seagulls' I Ran but when it clicked I had to smile since Seagulls are another of my favourites.

Breakin Outta Hell, the new single by Airbourne....much more impressed with this one than what was released on the last album Black Dog Barking......has similar energy to the first album Running Wild.

They have a lot of stuff on Soundcloud if anybody like AC/DC style rock

A friend of mine recorded this, and another friend mixed it, but am loving it - he's done a couple of others. If he wasn't so lazy, he'd have loads done I reckon! :D ;)
