Nitrate - Real World

Recommended Posts

Another new band launched by melodic rock records.  

Sounding pretty good.  Can definitely hear the Midnite City influences in the music with Rob Wylde and Pete Newdeck involved.  Frankly, almost sounds like a Midnite City song just with different vocals.  Initially for me, the music sounds fantastic but I'm needing to warm to the vocals a bit as I'm not familiar with the vocalist.  

Anyways, just thought I'd share the details here.

 

MelodicRock Records is truly excited to bring a brand new, exciting melodic rock band to light. One that characteristics everything many of us love about the 80s and about driving, melodic rock n roll.

NITRATE is that band. And the debut album is out July 20 and can be pre-ordered now. Pre-orders will get the lead track and one additional song via email shortly.

British rockers NITRATE may be a new name, but you’ll recognise some of the faces.

NITRATE is: Nick Hogg - Guitars & Keyboards Rob Wylde - Lead, Rhythm, Bass Guitar & Backing Vocals (Midnite City, Tigertailz) Joss Mennen - Lead & Backing Vocals (Zinatra/Mennen) Pete Newdeck - Drums & Backing Vocals (Midnite City, Eden’s Curse, Blood Red Saints, Newman)

Inspired by the late 80’s rock scene with bands such as, Def Leppard, Europe, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi and GNR, Nitrate is the brainchild of Nick Hogg (guitars/keyboards) who after playing in a few bands in the early 2000’s decided after a long absence from the music scene to get back into song writing again. Needing help, Nick enlisted songwriter/musician Rob Wylde (Midnite City/Tigertailz/Teenage Casket Company) who was back living in Nottingham from the US and had the same musical influences. Rob was able to structure/produce the songs, sing on the demo’s whilst playing drums, bass and guitar. Whilst Nick also played guitar and keyboards. A year on and with over an albums worth of material, a record contract was signed with MelodicRock Records. With Rob Wylde about to launch Midnite City, the hunt went on for a suitable vocalist to allow Rob the opportunity to focus on launching his new band. Andrew McNeice suggested a few vocalists and was keen to use an authentic 80’s singer, so Nick took the opportunity to contact Joss Mennen (Zinatra/Mennen) and asked if he would be interested in singing lead vocals on the album. (Zinatra’s ‘Great Escape’ being one of Nick’s favourite albums).

To complete the line-up, taking over mixing/drums and adding backing vocals to the album is Pete Newdeck (Midnite City, Eden’s Curse, Blood Red Saints, Newman). After being mixed by Newdeck, the songs were sent to Harry Hess (Harem Scarem) who mastered them at his studio in Canada.

Nitrate isn’t a one-off project, Album 2 is already written with the same Hogg/Wylde writing partnership and will be coming your way in 2019. Engineered by: Leon Bailey Mixed by: Pete Newdeck Mastered by: Harry Hess Produced by: Rob Wylde Album Artwork by: Nello Dell’Omo

Nice tune, Joss Mennen still sounds pretty good, makes me want to listen to The Great Escape by Zinatra.

First single sounds good! It's definitely one to watch when the album drops. From the first track, I can see myself driving around in the summer sun with the windows down loving life blasting it. I'm intrigued!

Pretty good!

Again, loving the overall sound and the music.  My only slight hesitation is just the vocals that have a slightly different flavor to them that seem to take me a little to warm up to.

Cool vibe in the music though and sounding good.  Hoping we get to hear another song before launch.

If you do start to warm up to Joss' vocals I recommend checking out The Great Escape by Zinatra, which included a few tracks written by Paul Laine.  Zinatra sounded similar to mid-80's Treat mixed with a touch of Queen.   It is available on Spotify under the album title Rockumentary Part 2.
