  1. Physical release now available https://catalanokills.bigcartel.com/product/nightfighter-cd-limited-edition
  2. My favorites are Nightfighter and What I Want, the single Rock The World ain't bad either
  3. Okja and Uncut Gems, both lukewarm
  4. simo


    Apparently in the US only ''essential'' stores and businesses are open like in many other countries around the world. Gun stores seem to be open... ''gun stores, gun makers and shooting ranges are critical businesses that shouldn’t be closed''
  5. Get out of here! That's my favorite movie, if you're talking about the 1984 original that is.... not the one with Jackie Chan which came out in like 2010
  6. simo


    Same in Switzerland, big groups standing together or people that don't keep a distance of at least 2 meters will get fined. Question is.... how do the cops intend to fine people if they can't move closer than 2m??

    WTF is this, the whole world grinding to a halt because of it?? Very annoying, 4'000 dead against a world population of 8+ billion....... shows you the power of media / internet and the human psyche...
  8. Few good tunes but didn't meet my expectations. Just to demonstrate I've assigned a "rating" to each song but very simplified: Good - songs I like and would choose to play outside of listening to the album Bad - a song I'm inclined to skip Neutral - can take it or leave it, if it comes on I will probably let it play Livin It Up - neutral Set This City On Fire - neutral / bad (50/50) the chorus brings it down for me otherwise the song has some nice parts Nightfighter - good unfortunately no guitar solo Wildest Dreams - neutral Overdrive - neutral Saturday Night - bad What I Want - good Lost In Love - bad Rock The World - good So 3 songs in each category more or less
  9. A mixed bag for me so far, still spinning it
  10. New album "Nightfighter" released without much fanfare on 29 February
  11. Appreciate the honest opinion, it's a good album there's no doubt about that. But I sat through it once now and I agree there might be some issues with replay value or some ''generic'' feeling moments
  12. I actually checked out the rest of the album last night, 6 songs in and I like all of them so far. They're different than the opener but they all have something interesting about them, reminds me of Heaven's Edge, Roxy Blue and Babylon A.D. at times but well done and I like the lead guitar work. Nice little find thanks to you
  13. 100%, does that mean it's on par with Tearing Down The Walls? *sarcasm off........
  14. I fucking LOVE the guitar solos on the songs so far, Dave is absolutely on fire!!!
  15. I don't have kids of my own but I made a similar experience with my little brother as we're quite far apart in age, 10 years. When he was younger he would hear what I was listening to and say I like this, I like that and it made me so happy. Anything from Atlantic (Power) to Dio that was when he was about..... 6 to maybe 10 or 11 years old. I would burn CDs with his favorite songs for him or put random playlists together and we would listen to music on my computer Then through kids at school or TV / radio he would hear other music and start asking for it. Initially it broke my heart that he wanted to listen to Black Eyes Peas, Akon, Chris Brown and the like. But it's inevitable and I learned to ''live'' with it At first I was hesitant to buy him CDs from these artists when he asked me to. But he's my little brother and I can't say no to him. Plus, I was hoping that listening to this music would make him realize how shit it is and to some extent it worked hahahaha. I remember a few days after he got the Black Eyes Peas CD from me and I asked him how it was he said it's ok but other than the singles he didn't like most of the other songs. Granted, the singles were horrific as well I thought but whatever He grew out of it after a while and then listened to Led Zeppelin, Kings of Leon and some other bands a lot at around 14. Now he's 21 and listens to rap mostly and and some indie / hipster music thrown in there for good measure, some classic rock (only the obvious tracks, probably cause he heard them in video games or something) and also modern music that I don't know how to describe other than to name a few artists - Post Malone, Benny Blanco and that kinda stuff
  16. AC/DC - Shoot To Thrill FM - That Girl (especially the second verse) And since Glen mentioned Steel Panther I will add ''It Won't Suck Itself''
  17. Will need to think on this a little further, but for now: The Defiants - Love & Bullets De La Cruz - Street Level Beggars & Thieves - Love's A Bitch
  18. Off the top of my head Bryan Adams and Michael Bolton. I thought they were mainstream / pop artists but when I discovered their older stuff I found quite a few AOR gems
  19. AC/DC's Highway to hell / Back in black and basically RATT from Out of the Cellar to Detonator (spanning 5 albums)
  20. It's not the major coup I had hoped for from them, mainly disappointed with the production which I really hoped they would improve this time around. Sadly the solos sound uninspired, guitars don't pack a lot of punch (due to the mix) the vocals are ok I think but the singer has done better in the past Lettard is right sonically it sounds very similiar to Dark Skies. Let's see what the rest of the album will sound like but I won't be getting my hopes up too much after this. Wonder if they're aiming for a February 29 release again cause that's the date the debut came out in 2016
  21. I saw Crüe on the last tour and I don't feel scammed at all. I travelled (albeit not as far as others) to see them and it was amazing. I'd understand if they had gone on tour the year right after the ''farewell'' tour, but this is 5 years later we're talking about. To be honest I had serious doubts about them getting back, as much as they love money there were two factors I thought would make another tour really difficult and therefore unlikely: Vince's state and Mick's health Now granted, Vince has been performing recently although he's in the worst shape he's ever been so I guess this will just continue into next year but happy to see that Mick is fine to play
