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.

    • Nice! Never got the debut so will pick that up for sure.   Might grab the other two also for the bonus stuff.
    • As mentioned before 'Loud Minority' gets the reissue treatment and so does their 2 follow-ups as well. From Frontiers: • CRAZY LIXX TO RE-ISSUE 2007 DEBUT ALBUM, "LOUD MINORITY" PLUS "NEW RELIGION" AND "RIOT AVENUE", EACH FEATURING BONUS TRACKS

      • ALL THREE AVAILABLE ON CD/COLOR LP/MP3 ON OCTOBER 12, 2018

      Swedish hard rock outfit Crazy Lixx will reissue their long out-of-print 2007 debut album, "Loud Minority" via Frontiers Music srl on October 12, 2018. In addition to the original 11 tracks found on the album, the reissue will also feature seven bonus tracks, including Japanese bonus tracks and early demo versions of track. Along with the reissue of "Loud Minority", reissues of the follow-up albums "New Religion" (2010) and "Riot Avenue" (2012) will also be available on October 12th, each with added bonus material on both as well.

      All three albums will be available on CD, Digital, and, for the first time, LP. The vinyl versions will all be special, limited edition color versions. See below for details and tracklisting. 

      Crazy Lixx vocalist and original member, Danny Rexon on the reissue of LOUD MINORITY: "The original pressing of 5000 albums was the only one ever made. We were on a small independent label at the time and even though the album was quite successful, peaking at #2 on the Swedish Rock charts, there was never any second pressing. The label ceased to be and we managed to buy out the rights for the album which we've now handed over to Frontiers. We're very pleased to be able to re-release this album a decade after it was originally out and after being unavailable for so long. Of all the requests we get from fans, this album has to be one of the most asked for." 

      "When we started out in the early 2000's I never thought vinyl would ever be a thing again, but since it has risen in popularity it's become something of a bucket-list thing to get our debut album (and the other ones of course) out on vinyl, so naturally we're very happy to be able to reissue these on vinyl," Rexon concludes.
