Hi there.
My name is Tommy B. Jensen.

I started listening to Metal and Rock music at a pretty early age: AC/DC, Megadeth, Guns N' Roses, Anthrax and so on. The magical sensation coming from this great energetic music got me hooked right away, resulting in a lifetime addiction.

At a later point I bought Invictus with Virgin Steele and from that day on nothing was ever quite the same, a truly unique band with the ability to reach the deepest corners of my soul. A fine example of how music can inspire and heal even deep wounds.

I'm also into Progressive music and Melodic Rock/AOR, so you could say I have a pretty versatile taste. One thing that is important though is melody, music should also unite people and create hope, so I'm supporting and looking for stuff that contribute and represent postive and constructive ideas.
Some of my absolute favourite bands include Virgin Steele, Dream Theater, Savatage, Iron Maiden and Bon Jovi, but you can dig more into that at my favourite bands and albums page.
Quality music just makes every day brighter and then you also get to be part of a fantastic brotherhood within the Metal/Rock community.

Keep the spirit and Rock Hard.

der var engan en far der havde to sønner den ene var stor som et bjerg, den anden var hurtig som et tog, men det der betød noget var at faren kunne lide dem begge lige meget...

Hey Man Of Metal.
The shirt was bought a long time ago at a German store called EMP, if I remember correctly that is.
Unfortunately they haven't got it on stock anymore, and Painkiller...a true Metal highlight for sure.

For Immediate Release
November 23, 2004

Long Live Crime Records gets heavy.

Los Angeles based Long Live Crime Records have signed Doomtree to their label. Band is slated for release in February 2005.

Long Live Crime Records has recently signed East coast favorite Doomtree. The band features former members of horror rock legends Samhain and the well-received alternative punk uber-band Son of Sam (that also featured members of AFI). Doomtree lead singer Steve Zing is considered an icon in this genre. Spreading his wings a little bit the band is reminiscent of the Misfits with driving beats that creates a melodic terror of horror pop rock combined with the heart stopping sounds of the heaviest of metal.

The band is currently putting together a tour for late spring and summer that will be announced at a later date. Long Live Crime Records is also putting together video contests and remix a song contests with the band that will be announced at a later date.

"The opportunities we have with Doomtree are endless. A lot of people at Long Live Crime Records cut their teeth in this genre of music and we are excited to be able to play an important part in what is going on right now with it." says General Manager Susan Ferris

"I worked for Suicidal Tendencies for a long time and I know good heavy music when I hear it. And this is great" according to Head of Sales and Marketing Reece McLaughlin.

For more information please on Doomtree or Long Live Crime Records contact:

Well looks like I have discovered something new definitely that should be checked out. It is a band called XYSTUS. Not sure if you have heard of them. The release I picked up is called Equilibrio which basically is a theatrical production infusing Metal and traditional theatrical/musical style. Though it does not have as many vocalists as Arjen's last monster cast, but it does involve more than 130 people in the production and premiered in the Netherlands. This sounds like a Broadway musical on steroids. It was a nice treat for me since I also like going to the theater to see musicals. Featured vocalists are Simone Simons (Epica; like I had to announce that), Bas Dolmans (Xystus), George Oosthoek (Orphanage) and a couple of renowned Dutch theater vocalist. Now keep in mind Sensory has released the studio recording of "Equilibrio", which features key scenes from the opera, and far as I know no double CD has yet been released. However, the DVD of the production is available.

Unfortunately this is one musical that I doubt will hit the Canadian West Coast. Shame!
