  1. I agree completely.....good choice of words Geoff
  2. Here's a heads up for those of you into CD collecting....the Estonian Band FIRST NIGHT has their new 14 track CD almost ready to be shipped and they are now accepting pre orders with PAYPAL to firstnightaor@gmail.com .........The CD costs 16 Euro which includes postage and I personally believe this is going to be hard to get in the near future since it is available only from the band at this moment. They sound very much in the vein of the Finnish band PRAYER with elements of LEVERAGE and BROTHER FIRETRIBE....... you can hear samples of all the tracks on CD baby at this link FIRST NIGHT CD  sound samples   14 tracks
  3. I always loved the sound of this band and have been waiting anxiously for something new......The samples seem to be in the same tradition as the older material, but.....I am definitely going to miss the vocals of Pekka Heino. Wow!! That said, let's be fair and give the new effort some time to grow on me.....
  4. I've been waiting for this one for quite a long time. Have been following the band on Facebook and now we are extremely close to actually holding a physical CD in our hands. According to the band, the CD is in pressing right now and will be available shortly. For me, It's hard to find good melodic rock (definitely radio ready sound) of this quality. I love the tasty keys and just the right level of guitar in the mix. This band reminds me so much of the Finnish band PRAYER with its vocals....hey, this singer has a quality that is unique and with the excellent harmonies, works to his advantage. Classy pure melodic rock with some definite pomp elements. Luv the use of keys here as well...... Similar in sound to PRAYER, GREENHOUZE, HOUSE OF MIRRORS and at times, BROTHER FIRETRIBE. I know some of you don't care for this vocalist, but let's also realize, the uniqueness in the sound of his delivery.....I think that is what really drew me to the PRAYER releases from Finland. Like it or not, this is a pleasant and refreshing effort IMO!
  5. Totally love this band....have their first two CDs and anxiously waiing to score this one.....
  6. Great sounding band......I am fortunate to have a copy of the demo tape as well....
  7. anxious to hear some tracks off this one......
  8. enjoyed the debut, so looking forward to hearing samples of his followup
  9. Anxious for this release....I have the Japanese pressing of the first
  10. Oh, there are many sound samples posted, you just have to navigate the site by clicking on the "bands" and then there are links to listen to their songs Most of the bands have at least 3 or 4 different samples posted
  11. You are spot on.....those titles labelled OUT OF STOCK are ones that will be released in the near future. The bands have been signed and the releases are being prepared for release. I know on the titles I purchased in the first release batch, they were listed like this and then changed to "Pre Order" with a release date of August 21 declared......As with any new project, we just have to hold our breath and be patient. Delbert
  12. Jacob That is the essence of my post....here is a label providing the obscure bands for us....and if you listen to the sound samples on the web page, they are great sounding as well. I'm certain you have observed numerous bands appear on Escape, Frontier, Perris and other labels and thought "Who are these guys, where did they come from, I don't recognize any of them".........I'm a collector, I have 100's of bands in my collection that I am positive neither you or many others have ever heard of before and when you heard them, would love them..... Delbert
  13. Dan That is surprising to me. The only response I can make would be that maybe it is something that was overlooked. I'm sure there's much involved in starting a project such as this. Actually, I hadn't seen anything anywhere advertising the new label, only learned of it when discussing a trade with Josh back in May sometime. I'd be great if he did reach out to you...... Delbert
  14. This Monday I received a package in the mail that I have been anxiously awaiting with bated breath for a couple of months. It contained the CDs from the new METALLIC BLUE RECORDS LABEL that was recently started by one of the members of our group, Josh Dowdle. I felt compelled to post to let all of you know about this great new label and the bands being offered now and in the future if you haven't already heard of it. I know I have discussed with many of my collector friends the need for these small labels to propel these obscure bands and CDs to us for our collections. If you are like me, I hate the new wave of downloading and love to hold the physical CD in my hands. Oh, I have to mention, the liner notes and entire packaging on these Metallic Blue Records CDs are first class as is the sound. Most of you know I am a stickler for high quality audio....LOL!! Please, check out the new label and support it if you can, and Josh, I think you've put together a great package starting out.....good luck and long life....... METALLIC BLUE RECORDS
