In response to Cyrille Regis, BBC 2 repeat the Adrian Chiles documentary, Whites v Blacks, How Football Changed A Nation, unbelievable true story, worth watching

Stoke City condemned 2 relegation. Who is the new manager? Paul Lambert.

Agreed Reyno about Clyde Best, further back is the story of Walter Tull which is quite heartbreaking, links to Northampton and lived in Rushden.

Big loss is Cyrille, only short time at Wolves, but I was at the Peterborough game where he scored the last minute winner, Cyrille and Laurie C, what a team.

I think many people forget guys like West Ham's Clyde Best whenever the subject of the impact of black footballers in the English game crops up. He was just as good as the West Brom trio years b4

Cyrille was part of the ground breaking so called 'three degrees' who did so much to break down racial barriers in Football back in the late 70's.R.I.P

Black Majesty - 2002 Sands Of Time [Promo]

ARTIST: Black Majesty
ALBUM: Sands Of Time (Promo)
LABEL: Self Released
YEAR: 2002


LINEUP: John 'Gio' Cavaliere - vocals * Steve Janevski - guitars * Hanny Mohamed - guitars * Pavel Konvalinka - drums * Joe Fata - bass

TRACK LISTING: 01 Fall Of The Reich * 02 Guardian * 03 Beyond Reality


Black Majesty, from Melbourne, Australia are one of many bands from downunder, such as Dungeon, Vanishing Point, and Pegazus, who are furthering the notion that Australia is possibly the latest and greatest breeding ground for classy melodic metal. The band has formerly gone under the names of Kymera and Arkaya and includes former and current members of Pegazus and Cyclone Tracy.

The Songs
If their 3 track sampler is any indication then Black Majesty's debut album due in early 2003 will receive plenty of positive attention. 'Sands Of Time' contains 3 blistering power/prog metal anthems. 'Fall Of The Reich' grabs you by the throat and never lets up. A melodic metal masterpiece with vocalist John Cavaliere sounding quite sensational. Second track 'Guardian' has an Iron Maiden-ish intro that moves into a progressive sound like that of fellow Aussies Vanishing Point. Vocally we get a duet between Cavaliere and former Pegazus singer Danny Cecati. The voices compliment each other very well. Final track 'Beyond Reality' has a similar vibe to 'Guardian' with the Iron Maiden/Vanishing Point references.

In Summary
Though they claim that they may be the next Australian heavy metal band to make it's mark on Europe, (I think Dungeon may beat them to the punch), it is a claim that does have foundation. In Cavaliere they have a world class vocalist and a sound that bridges very nicely between melodic power metal and progressive metal. I'm glad early 2003 is only a few months away as 'Sands Of Time' has put me in the mood for plenty more from this very talented band.
