    Creye - s/t

    Am I to understand that the cd doesn’t come out until October.....that’s like 6 months! I’m having flashbacks of the last Wigelius release.

    Gioeli - Castronovo - Set The World On Fire

    I’m liking that track quite a bit.
  3. I’m so late to the party...but better late than never. I downloaded all their stuff and it’s freaking brilliant.

    Retrospect Records is for sale

    No clue, just one last Retrospect dig. I read my comments about RR from 12 years ago last night and it seems like a lifetime ago....I forget why I wrote any of them.

    Retrospect Records is for sale

    Are any pending lawsuits also included in the deal?

    TNT - XIII

    The comments on Youtube are so negative that they have been disabled. It's a horrible song no doubt about it.

    W.E.T - Earthrage

    I agree...It's pretty damn good! My favourite track which I no one has mentioned yet is ''Kings Of Thunder Road''...love that chorus.

    Terry's list always makes me think we live on two different planets.

    Mr. Big - What If

    The new song sounds great. Never been a Big fan of Mr. Big, but they have released some great material. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zit9TQADS6o I also loved the track they released last year Next Time Around, I wish that one would be on the new one, it was only on the band's last Best Of.

    WIG WAM - Wall Street

    New track from the upcoming release in April http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LHm7idxR-4 This track sounds just like.....WIG WAM. I like it, not blowing me away, but I'll certainly get it.
  12. Surprising news, but here is a new track with the new singer. Even more melodic and 80's sounding. [media=] [/media]

    Top Ten of 2017 (at the moment)

    My own take on the best of 2017. I'd have too tough a time listing in order, so I did an award version as my list. It was a great year for music and I hope 2018 is just as good. Best Melodic Hard Rock & Best comeback album – HAREM SCAREM – United Best keyboard filled AOR / Melodic Rock album –BROTHER FIRETRIBE – Sunbound Best 80’s Hair Rock styled album – CRAZY LIXX – Ruff Justice Best Heavy Metal album – TRIVIUM – The Sin And The Sentence Best Prog album – THRESHOLD – Legends Of The Shire Best debut – ONE DESIRE – s/t Best flew under the radar album – LIONVILLE - A World Of Fools Best Super Group album – SONS OF APOLLO – Psychotic Symphony Best grower & best sounding (production) album – H.E.A.T – Into The Great Unknown Best Frontiers Records project & Best always in the mood to listen to album – TOKYO MOTOR FIST – s/t Best album that no one on HH has heard – PYOGENESIS – A Kingdom To Disappear Best album that I love that most on HH don’t – THE DARKNESS – Pinewood Smile Best runner-up in more than one category – MIDNITE CITY – s/t Most disappointing album – STEEL PANTHER – Lower The Bar edited on May 3rd....best late to the party addition - THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA- Amber Galactic

    Rick Springfield - The Snake King

    Not much singing for most of the track....odd! The guitar work sounds great, but this isn't my sorta thing.

    Code Red - Incendiary

    Reminds me of Find Me....I'm in!

    Sons Of Apollo - Psychotic Symphony

    I'll be part of the minority here, like I usually am with The Darkness....but this release is absolute gold to my ears. My only complaint is the final 10 minute instrumental, I would have preferred another track with JSS singing, which he sings his balls off on this one. Easily one of the best of 2017 and makes me forget for a moment the disaster that was Dream Theater's - The Astonishing. Still give the edge to Threshold for the best Prog release of 2017 though. Why is this thread not in the Prog section? Can you shift it over Dan?

    Midnite City

    ``Ghosts Of My Old Friends`` has to be one of the oddest song titles for an up beat melodic rock song ever. These guys also remind me of Loud & Clear. To make this one stand out even more they needed some flashier lead guitar to fill in the sound and to have more memorable guitar solos. A Reb Beach / Andy Timmons / Rob Marcello styled player would have greatly added to this one.

    Midnite City

    I'm with Glen on this one, the songs are very simple, samey and the pace hardly ever changes. That said this is the kind on stuff I enjoy. No real standouts but no duds either. They do remind me of White Widdow, but the guitar work isn't as awesome and the choruses aren't as strong. If you're a fan of White Widdow, Danger Danger and Crazy Lixx you'll likely love this one. Likely my second favorite debut of 2017 after One Desire, also my second favorite 80's Hair Rock styled release of 2017 after Crazy Lixx.

    Trivium - Silence In The Snow

    I may be the only fan of the band on HH, but this release should find new fans from the boys on this board. The band has done a total 180 from their old screamo days to the new Melodic Metal sound. The vocals are awesome and no more screams at all. This one will be one of my favorite releases of 2015. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVpU-OXrg1c https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcIlZ3luYHc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pm-xlwkQ_qc Those are the three first singles. October 2nd 2015 will go down as one of my favorite music release days ever. The new Queensryche and Entwine also came out the same day,

    H.E.A.T - Into The Great Unknown

    It's a grower, getting better with each spin.
  21. zacharyamelie

    H.E.A.T - Into The Great Unknown

    It's OK, the cursing is so pointless and with only ten tracks it shouldn't have any filler and there is some. The sound quality is still top notch but the songs don't do much for me. There are many better releases that came out this year.

    What's a spinnin' in your CD player?

    Holy Shit! Without knowing I pulled out Generation Wild about 5 minutes ago.

    The Darkness - Pinewood Smile

    The album actually has the fewest fillers on a Darkness release, but also doesn't have that 1 or 2 kick ass song like previous efforts. The production is ace and the musicians are at their best. Rufus Taylor....Queen's Roger Taylor's son sounds great on drums and gives the band a fuller sound. The variety of songs are immense but other than 1 or 2 duds the rest is 'pretty solid'....an intended pun on two of the released tracks.

    The Darkness - Pinewood Smile

    That track is pure filler

    OD - changing the name to One Desire

    I have to agree this is the best produced Frontiers release of 2017. The TMF production isn't great but isn't Crashdiet - Savage Playground bad either.
