From Europe (FB):

FRIENDS!

We have just finished the recording for our new album at the legendary Abbey Road Studios!
It turned out so much more exciting than we expected! The vibe in this studio is great! The staff and facilities are out of this world.
Of course we couldn’t resist having some fun with vintage equipment and amazing recording techniques. Our producer Dave Cobb really made the songs fly, beautifully engineered by Eddie Spear.
The album is due out in October with one or two tracks coming your way ahead of release. Prior to the release we will also post clips/pics from the recording session here on our Facebook page.
Meanwhile we're getting ready to hit the road again for our "Electric Summer tour 2017".
Looking forward to seeing you all out there!

// Europe

Honestly? Gosh. TBH I've never followed them, I just remember them from their 80s heydey.

Now I'm gonna have to check them out and see if I liked what they've morphed into

...but now you're confusing me. I thought I'd got all this AOR stuff clear in my head. They still sound AOR to me or would you say they are more metal now?

I'd better not start another 'what is AOR?' discussion else I'll get banned

Their last album was more classic rock with a bit of grunge thrown in

You seem to be struggling there. I think the word you're looking for is shit. They are just plain and simply, shit.

 

There is no remnant of what made people love them in the mid to late 80's and early 90's. Nothing. It's just... shit.

What was their last album that you listen to because since they're reunited in 2004 with that album 'Start From The Dark', they're not Prisoners In Paradise anymore :D

From Diamond Lane (website)

To build on the existing buzz surrounding Diamond Lane, the band has chosen 2017 as the perfect time to release their brand new, full-length studio album, titled “Must Be Hell”. With classic twin guitar attack, a pounding rhythm section, and powerful vocals, this new album provides a refreshing, modern approach to classic heavy metal.

Silence, British Creep!

 

Wow, Karpetface, this is the best information you've ever brought to the forum. This would be amazing if this led to new music. Do you know who's in the band? The original lead singer? Not that creepy British guy from Morning After?

    • Every time I listen to Firehouse I ask, "Why can't all drums sound like this?" ;}
    • I love between the devil and the deep blue sea , like the debut and the follow up , like parts of the last album and absolutely hate the new one , they have gone full on blues rock it would seem which is not for me , great band live though
    • on the subject of Blessthefall , I absolutely love that new album 
    • Birds of prey is my pick from the album , like be legendary too and don't mind a few others
    • It was their first ever tour of Australia which is weird in itself. $100 is pretty steep but I guess normal as it ain't cheap to get over here. Anyway, it was a fairly basic show.
      Big backdrop curtain, and that was the only stage prop.
      All dressed in black, no wardrobe changes etc.
      Good long show overall.
      2 x 1 hour sets and the venue enabled a good view from anywhere.
      Joey took time to walk through the crowd during Superstitious which I guess is appropriate in that song (not worried about crazy fans)
      A couple of crowd singalongs which weren't too long so that was ok

      Other than that they were a fairly basic set up "stripped down" if you like
      I kinda had warped expectations having seen the old Final Countdown etc film clips with fireworks etc

      As for the setlist Walk the Earth
      The Siege
      Rock the Night
      (With snippet of ”Whole Lotta Rosie” by AC/DC)
      Scream of Anger
      Danger on the Track
      Firebox
      Sign of the Times
      Vasastan
      Girl From Lebanon
      Open Your Heart
      War of Kings
      Heart of Stone
      Days of Rock 'n' Roll
      Superstitious

      Second Set
      Ready or Not
      Last Look at Eden
      Hole in My Pocket
      Seven Doors Hotel
      Carrie
      Turn to Dust
      Drum Solo
      Stormwind
      Prisoners in Paradise
      GTO
      Let the Good Times Rock

      Encore:
      Cherokee
      The Final Countdown Missing songs for me
      I'll Cry For You
      Just The Beginning - would have thought that this would have been the perfect song to end set 1...
      Halfway To Heaven
      Talk To Me
      On Broken Wings
      Always The Pretenders
      New Love In Town
      Bag Of Bones

      I know everyone has a different opinion, but I'm not sure the crowd as a whole really appreciated most of the newer stuff.
      They missed quite a few singles which was a bit weird given their first tour of Oz. (almost as weird a Cheap Trick not playing The Flame when I saw them)

      But overall it was a good show. I would have regretted not seeing it. Not as much as I regret missing the Dr Feelgood tour, but still regretted it I guess. 
    • While I agree with your overall premise about quality studio productions, I'm with Glen on a band like Blessthefall not being able to reproduce their sound live.  Just about everything has an artificial aspect to it on the studio recording.  I am not saying they sound bad live it just isn't going to sound like the album even if they pump in some additional sound and effects.   
    • Where you off to Geoff?
      I fly out to Thailand on the 14th
