Gioeli - Castronovo - Set The World On Fire

Recommended Posts

In case you didn't already know, THIS is my type of tune.  Vintage melodic rock.  Great harmonized vocals, guitars that actually use B and High-E strings, and an old-school vibe that's right up my alley.  Yep, I'll take one, please!

Ok, gotta admit, that first single was better than I was expecting... shows much promise.

If only they were half as funny as they think they are. Schtick is a bit strong and the love fest... they should get a room.

Music sounds good tho.

Johnny is one of the best frontmen out there. Just saw and heard him recently with Axel Rudi Pell. What a voice! 👍

Meh. Whatever. They're clearly excited to be working together, and the energy is palpable. Yeah, it's awkward, but the music is so good it's forgivable. But those photos were cool. Two grown-ass men still able to goof off. I hope I never lose my inner-child.

Wow, that's a great song. I'm glad it's understood that Castronovo is actually the better singer and they're sharing the vocal duties, as they have a good combination. Works well. Yum. Can't wait to hear more of this one. 

Just watched the EPK. Gioeli actually seems really cool, Castronovo probably a bit harder to handle, but that's cool. As noted, the songs sound great!!

Not as good as that first single, but still a pretty good tune.  Sounds like a track that would have fit in nicely on either of the last two Hardline releases.

Yep...too many ballads, but over all a very good album.

Do my ears need testing? On track 7 (Ride of Your Life), it sounds like Castronovo is singing inside a closet. He sounds muffled as fuck.

Am I imagining things?

Surely you guys can't be surprised that albums like this turn out ballad heavy. Castronovo seems a magnet for ballads. 

I agree there's a few too many ballads, and the harder rockers are definitely the better songs. I'll give it a proper run-through maybe tomorrow, but I liked 'Fall like an angel' despite the really dodgy "rhyming" lyrics in the chorus. And there was another really cool rocker towards the end. Was it 'Run for Your Life?' 

Initial impression was I'd have liked more Castronovo on vocals as it seemed to be mostly Gioeli, but seems like a good album. I thought it sounded considerably better than Revolution Saints (especially the second album), and light years better than Axel Rudy Pell.

definitely nowhere near the 2nd Rev Saints which is an awesome slab of melodic rock hard, with only 2 ballads

I could have done without the cover of Need You Now and wished they'd have swapped out one of the ballads for another up tempo track.  But, don't let some minor flaws deter you, this is a high-caliber project and well worth checking out.

    • 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).
    • Here you go. Angelica's demos with Andy Lyon on vocals: https://we.tl/t-vc17XGXORd
    • 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.
