    Plinius is a brand I see up for sale occasionally but have never seen at a show nor ever heard. Anyone know something about them? I haven't even seen them offered on various dealer websites visited. I wonder if they are still in business.

    If not familiar with Aphrodites Child 666 it's a concept album based on the book of the Bible Revelations. You sort of have to begin and let it flow, it's not something you will get by sampling it. However, the track Four Horsemen did get some...
