    First Signal - album #3

    Forget it, the label's not gonna say shit. Sorry to say

    Tempt - s/t

    Damn, just saw the video for the first time and I never thought I'd say this but the drummer is stealing the show. Just look at him dig into those drums, amazing groove

    Slash - Living the Dream

    I thought every album so far has had at least a few decent tracks on it. Having said that, I listened to World on Fire the least and Apocalyptic Love the most out of the three. This might not have anything to do with song quality but only that I was more receptive to this style back then But will need to check out World on Fire again to see how it's held up

    Tempt - s/t

    Roses is really growing on me, I especially like the part in the chorus where he sings ''She's got the groove I can't get out of my head'' there's a guitar in the background that just sounds so good and everything comes together nicely Hope we can start a new Tempt thread soon once they announce their second album
  5. Was listening to Tempt's album this weekend and while the song ''Aamina'' was playing I noticed the singer saying the word ''guitar'' right when the solo starts. Every now and then you'll hear a song where a guitar solo is introduced like that. Another example is ''Relentless Renegades'' by Santa Cruz. I know it's very specific but for some reason I notice it. I have nothing against it I just think it's kind of ''funny''. What are some of the songs you know that share this trait?

    Santa Cruz No More

    This is an instrumental version of Pavel's own song ''Ready To Fall'', the vocals on the original aren't anything groundbreaking but he does them himself and I'm sure he'll do more than fine as a backup vocalist

    Santa Cruz No More

    I must say I'm VERY impressed with the new guitar player, and after I found out he's only 19 even more so! As a guitar player myself I really enjoy his style (maybe the singer will benefit from it as well, new inspiration etc) and also like the things he did before Santa Cruz. There are a few videos of covers online and even original songs, again very impressed by the talent and definitely interested in the next album

    I somehow missed that the new song was released on June 24 already, I downloaded it and it's not bad. I would've maybe wished for a better solo, cause I know Harrison has the chops and the build up to it is very good.

    Saw some live performances on Youtube. While the song is catchy and very immediate, I fear it might get boring fast for that very reason...... will see

    Really hoping they can release a follow up to their promising debut very soon, ideally this year
  13. This is still in the VERY early stages but the news got me excited. Could be another year before we get to hear something though, but the Catalano singer Roxx Catalano has posted an update saying drum tracking for new music has begun. While the first album was mostly a solo effort with some guest performances, Catalano is now a full band consisting of: Roxx Catalano - Vocals Matt Fawcett - Guitar Rory Joy - Guitar (played in De La Cruz with Roxx) Nick Casalini - Bass (also guitarist for Darcee Fox) Nick Caligula - Drums Hoping these links work: https://instagram.com/p/Ba3e_omnkmk/ https://instagram.com/p/Ba3EdEtH6qS/

    Catalano working on second album

    I own the Catalano debut and they're CD-R's, if you decide you'd like one let me know and I could get a copy at the show if they're selling them

    By the way still liking Wildfire a lot, the chorus is just so damn catchy

    Catalano working on second album

    Used to be through their website https://catalanokills.bigcartel.com/ but physical copies were all gone shortly after the release two years ago. I think they did a second run which also went quick Don't know if they'll produce some CDs for their upcoming shows again, I could pick one up for you if they sell any merch at their Stockholm gig next month

    Dare - Out of the Silence II

    I like ''Heartbreaker'' off the debut but that's basically it. Follow-up ''Blood From Stone'' was much better

    lyrics help

    Had to check it out, VERY cool song! Thanks for posting rocketman / Crazysam
  20. All right, I gotta ask - does anyone here like Charlie Puth? I heard 2 maybe 3 of his older songs last year and didn't like em (Marvin Gaye and We Don't Talk Anymore), his voice is okay but I don't like the style, typical music you'd hear on the radio these days. After ignoring the new single Attention for a few months I've come to like it and am interested to hear his new album when it comes out next January. Although it's a pop song I think it's well made, nice build up with the pre-chorus and the synthesizers in the background for example. The new single How Long ain't bad either He does a lot himself beside writing the music - recording, mixing etc. and from what I can tell he really likes getting into the production aspect of the music. I heard him say he likes a lot of early 90s RnB and pop for its production and tries to copy that. It may not be rock but I think it's admirable he is trying to sonically model his music after those examples with the big sound, warmth, backing vocals on top of each other and stuff like that. He's really putting a lot of thought into it which can't be said about a lot of ''artists'' or producers in mainstream music these days.....

    Charlie Puth anyone??

    Terrible start but after 25 seconds this turns into a real (lite) AOR anthem, give it a listen:

    What CDs did you buy this week?

    Charlie Puth - Voicenotes Very good!

    Breaking music news

    Been asking myself lately if Palace is still active as a band? Their debut ''Master of the Universe'' from two years ago showed some promise
  24. simo

    Catalano working on second album

    Indeed, full length as well as the self released debut EP
  25. What about the guitar player does anyone know if he played in another project before? I think I recognized the guitar from an Issa video a few years back, could be the same guy
