Modern Rock

Recommended Posts

I've been scoping the "other music styles " forum and it's 80% modern rock. Let's face facts and accept that modern rock has alot of value to many members here. I'm not saying we should add them all to the HH database, but a section in the message board dedicated solely to what is concidered modern, ie: what Geoff and TIM2 go nuts over....me as well with some of those bands.

 

Just my 2 cents, now I'll shut up.

 

 

....Crap I'm typing again....

 

...and again....

 

.....STOP ME!!!!!

Haha... yeah. it's pretty much what the 'Other styles' forum has become but I always feel so out of place putting a lot of stuff there as a lot of it's more melodic rock than the stuff in the MHR forum. :lol:

Yep I think that's a good idea as well. I think the 'modern rock' thing has taken over the 'other music styles' section of the forum which is where I like to start topics on such great artists as Corey Hart and Nik Kershaw :) And with the huge number of really good modern rock bands emerging I think the genre is deserving of its own section.

Yes, every time I go to post a thread in the "Other Music Styles" section about the killer new opera CD I found, I always end up forgoing the idea, realizing that my beautiful opera recommendation would be lost in the swamp of modern rock/metal bands that have taken over the section. :crying: Where, oh where, does one go these days to post about opera, polka, and other disturbingly under-discussed musical genres?

 

Seriously, a Modern Rock/Metal Section is a good idea, given that a lot of the newer stuff has been embraced by melodic hard rockers, including myself, probably because modern bands have finally learned how to incorporate melody, hooks, and harmonies into their sound. But if this idea doesn't come to pass, I won't sweat it; I'll just keep going to the "Other Music Styles" thread. Let's face it, we already have Modern Rock/Metal Section; it's just a matter of do we want to officially label it that or not.

Agree its mostly modern rock - but then again most of the 'modern' rock this year is absolutely killer :tumbsup:

 

Everyone should go to 'other Music Styles' and listen. If you like Harem Scarem, then the likelihood is that you will like Ra's new album due out soon - but how many will really check it out??

 

Just my 2 cents.

Yeah almost zero interest to modern rock and metal but a new sub-forum will be harmless and probably a few dig this so well yes from me too

As someone who prefers Hard Rock but not AOR or Melodic. I'd vote to group them like this:

 

AOR / Melodic Rock

 

Modern / Hard Rock

 

Bands like Hinder and Halestorm are very different from bands like H.E.A.T. and Harem Scarem, yet they're all in the same section.

    • Is this getting a general release, rather than the very pricey version from his website?
    • Not a bad tune.. It's a pretty good album in general 
    • Brilliant album  and one of the best of it's type. so if you haven't got it before, now is your chance.
    • From FB back in May: Hi All!
      This time we have a little heartbreaker for you called "I'm loving you"
      It's our 7th song,
      i'm very tempted to put out few other's but i want there to be some surprises for the album but who knows maybe we will throw one more out in near future.
      We still have a lot of work to do,as we are working on our own and we are on and off 3 member band at the moment,
      but i can tell you there will be 12-13 songs on the album and i have songs to fill up quarter of the next album.
      I can't wait for the album myself and i know there will be no fillers.
      Depends on taste,but these days for me is hard to find a decent album which has more than 2-3 very good tracks,so i have to stick with the old school AOR mostly.Still some stuff to discover though. This track,like all the others is mixed and mastered by our very good lead guitarist Mick T
      and i can be blamed for the lyrics & music as usual. And again big THANK YOU for listening etc.We will work harder to get further and i hope the future will look bright for us
      Cheers!

    • I'm going to go with this one.
      Opener off the album and I thought it was ok on first listen, since them has grown a lot on me  
    • Starting over at the age of 57. Watch the documentary 'Queen of Scream' down below. From AOR Heaven: She is one of the finest Canadian Rock singers, she fronted for 36 years celebrated melodic rockers Headpins recording 3 albums, and she did backing vocals of countless '80s records. In August 2016 Darby performed the last gig with Headpins and from this date she's now under her own monicker. The "Flying Solo" stuff is a compilation of songs recorded by Darby Mills during the '80s / early '90s, released under the 'Darby Mills And The Unsung Heroes' moniker, long time out of print. All the material has been digitally remastered for the first time, and it sounds million bucks. Easily among the best female fronted AOR ever recorded, all the songs on this CD are fantastic and simply utterly essential for really every AOR lover !  Get it from her website (CA$ 25.00 incl. shipping): http://www.darbymills.com/store
