(Andy Synn brings us another installment in his occasional series of favorite things that come in fives. Leave a comment and let us know what you think of Andy’s picks . . . and who you’d pick if you had your wish.)
So the last several years have seen some amazing ‘comebacks’, I think we can all agree? Everyone from Alice in Chains to Byzantine to The Crown have been lacing up their boots and getting back in the saddle to show the world just how much they’ve been missed in their absence.
Some of my personal favourites – bands I never thought I’d hear another record from, let alone get a chance to see live – have come back with a vengeance, with artists like Antestor, Vision of Disorder, and Extol all returning to justify their near-legendary status.
Still though, there’s a number of bands I just can’t let rest in peace. Bands who need to come back. Bands who have unfinished business. Bands I have to see live!
So here’s five of my favourites, each with a song from their very last album, to show you what we’re all missing.
