Brazilian band "Tales From The Porn" (shit name, I know) will be releasing their debut album in Sept.

Initially only available from a Brazilian website, a European distributor will be announced soon (but they will export to America apparently).

They managed to get Stevie Rachelle to sing for them, so will at least have some familiarity and not have some bad south American accent on vocals.

Stevie describes the sound as Skid Row meets Cinderella meets Ratt (although obviously Tuff must factor in the sound somewhere too ha ha).

 

They have a song available on Soundcloud, and it does sound good (the guitar melody certainly sounds like Ratt to me, with a hint of Back for more in it).

Lyrically it is a bit cheesy, but it does sound pure 80s hair metal (the album will feature a cover of Dangerzone just in case it needed more 80s cred).

I don't love the lead vocals (but I don't hate them) but I do love that riff. Very cool. And overall, very authentically 80's. Definitely something I am interested in. Cool song.

 

It actually does have a pretty heavy Tuff vibe in quite a few places. Guitar-wise and backing vocals and all... very Tuff-esque.

The Tuff vibe has to be there considering Stevie is on vocals, but considering how he has done other stuff since then that does not sound like Tuff musically, its actually good to hear him going back to his roots.

Yeah, definitely. Not even Shameless ever really sounded much like Tuff... even when they were good. ;) But this sounds like something worthwhile since the Tuff days. He never had a great voice, but it seems more obviously bad these days. But as long as he's making music like Tuff I'm a happy dude.

WIth some better lyrics this would be a pretty cool tune, still enjoyable for what it is

I think I would have preferred the song without the Stevie on vocals. The tune and the riff as mentioned is huge but Stevie's vocals seem strained and a bit week especially compared to the chorus. The cheesy lyrics are fine hell its butt rock after all.

 

The band should 1 change the name and 2 go with a local screamer as Brazil has two gaggles of quality musicians.

Holy shit, that is seriously awesome. Not to mention, it's the best filmclip of 2017. But I absolutely love the song.

 

As for getting a local screamer, Terry... I dunno, mate. I don't think I've ever heard a good Brazilian vocalist. I'd probably take Rachelle over any locals. He sounds much better on this song.

    • Awesome! Thanks! I also have some demos of Dennis Cameron from *after* Angelica that he was working on that never saw the light of day (in case anyone would be interested).

    • only a man has one of the greatest intros to a rock song ever 
    • from various sources: "Right Turn" is the new album from singer / songwriter DANIEL TRIGGER, an indie artist who has been releasing several records since 2005, plus albums under the Trigger name. We have listened to some of them but his overall heavy rock style never convinced us. However, things are changing with "Right Turn". I can see why the album will be released by MelodicRock Records soon; this material is inspired by the classic Melodic Rock sound from the '80s.

      One thing that will surprise the listener is that Daniel hails from the Midlands in the UK and not the US as the music on here would suggest. Bringing to mind Mitch Malloy (in his early years), Johnny Lima and late '80s Bon Jovi, Daniel Trigger knows his way around a melodic tune and chorus.

      Lyrically he harks back to the glory days of melodic rock on ‘Days Gone By’. ‘Drive’ is a tune made for just that – top down on the car (or windows for most of us) with this melodic rock gem blasting out on the speakers. There's a clear Malloy feeling in the classy melodic rock pattern of 'Running Into The Wind', with its rip roaring piano riff including acoustic guitar into the mix but used as 'electric' riffage.

      Midtempo 'Hold Back The Night' brings to mind Bon Jovi's New Jersey era, really 'American' in its delivery, 'Heavy Heart' has a catchy, pure '80s melodic rock chorus, while we have a classic rock vibe on the fun ‘Rock N Roll Party’. The only ballad here, ‘There In Your Heart’, bring to mind Jon Bon Jovi solo album, or better Johnny Lima, as Trigger's voice is very similar to them.   If you have listened to some of Daniel Trigger previous albums, forget 'em, he has 'turned' timeless melodic rock here on the properly titled "Right Turn". There's sweet melodious vocals, catchy choruses, a warm production, and while Daniel performs all instruments, he was cleverly enough to bring a very good guitar player in Jay Maddison to provide the clean solos and round up very entertaining songs. Daniel Trigger will be a new name to many and he is worth listening to based on the melodic rock delights he has provided here. Highly Recommended

    • I don't really mind the extra guitar effects... unnecessary noodling, but actually well played, and no one should ever argue the dude's guitar prowess.  But those vocal chords have obviously taken a pounding over the past 35 years.  I would have lost a bet had someone challenged me whether or not that was Aldo Nova on vox.  I would have laughed and called you crazy for implying such jest.  Appears the joke is on me!   This one is not on my buy list.
