Tthe new school had no orchestra and that was the end of that. It was my older brother who introduced me to Black Sabbath, the band that would have the biggest impact on me. It changed my world and I am still a massive Sabbath fan to this day. Having put the trumpet aside, and turned on by the music his siblings had introducing him to, Martin picked up the guitar and taught himself to play.
By the end of high school, he was a reasonably handy player. They needed a bass player and Martin put up his hand, neglecting to tell them he knew nothing about the bass.
He rushed out and purchased an instrument along with a copy of the latest Iron Maiden album Killers and set to work learning how to play both the music and the instrument.
Of course, I had no idea. We ended up covering Judas Priest, Scorpions and Black Sabbath and on top of that wrote a whole bunch of originals. This is where it all started for me. We had this practice room in the middle of Willis St in Wellington, which was pretty much our second home. We drank heaps of booze, and mooched around central Wellington with our long hair and studded wristbands and thought we were pretty cool.
They were fun times and I really loved that band but when I listen back now we were pretty rough. We recorded an EP called Breaking Out and released it on vinyl. The band is included on Godzone Metal , a New Zealand metal compilation album. Tyrant played its last gig in June at their practice rooms in Miramar to a few hundred loyal fans and friends. During the last days of Tyrant, Martin came across Te Puke metal outfit Knightshade who were playing three nights at a Wellington tavern called The Terminus.
Intrigued by the art on the advertising posters, he went along to check them out. He introduced himself to the guys and hung out with them the next few times they were in Wellington. A while later when guitarist Laurie Goossens left they got in touch and offered me the job.
I packed up straight away and headed up to Te Puke and later followed them to Hamilton, where I have been ever since. Metacritic Reviews. Photo Gallery. Trailers and Videos. Crazy Credits.

From what I've heard of my cyrus kit it's very dynamic and quite 'party' definitely something to tap your feet along to. I couldn't really comment on naim, linn or exposure stuff because I've not heard or read many reviews of it.
Hi Tom, The original Planet certainly gave an impression of vinyl like sound I heard this and didn't think it worked particularly well. Well, Vinyl. Two different sounds. Listening to the Planet it's seems the designers have pitched for a very rhythmic and detailed player which has been passed on to the This is something I don't understand.
Are there many Exposure dealers near you? Down this way they seem very popular but speaking to a lot of people on this forum they seem not to have heard of them. Same goes for Rega, and to a lesser degree Naim.
I am in Gravesend in kent by teh way. Supra Member. I have the Roksan Kandy amp, the best bet is to pop in somewhere like sevenoaks sound and vision. Try a few amp and cd player combinations and let your ears decide, I would suggest take alond a few cds that you listen to regularly.
By the way i'm in gravesend too. Exposure is definately worth a listen it sounds much more full and considering it claims half the wattage of the kandy it sounds very powerful. JH1 Guest. Newbie, If you do stretch your budget for your cd player or will consider secondhand, give the Roksan Caspian Cd player a listen.
