    The Treatment - Power Crazy

    Interesting. More Krokus than AC/DC but Krokus is an AC/DC knockoff so there you go. The songs are fine, but it is a change.

    The Raven Age - Conspiracy

    Yes that is nice/refreshing to have some heavy tunage sans the cookie monster vocal. Great find on some melodic modern metal. At the 3 minute mark there is a harsher background vocal that could lead one to believe they may dabble there... The singer sounds like another modern hard rock singe r that I can't place, maybe one of you other fellows can name it.

    Starbreaker - Dysphoria

    I don't mind either song and I think the JP references in Pure Evil are musically as that gallopy almost double bass affair is similar to Painkiller, but Harnell is no Halford. Tony's voice is sounding tasty on this disc though certainly getting into the upper upper register. Pure Evil for me is the better tune, but as with vintage TNT a more arena rock friendly tune or 2 seemed to be the proper plan. I'd like to hear more.

    https://www.facebook.com/HITTENOFFICIAL Didn't find a mention to this tasty hard rock/metal band from Spain. Excellent old school 80's sound and it seems they have a few releases available... Here's an older clip with a different singer, still cool, even though I dig the new stuff more so.

    Tesla - Shock

    As a Tesla fan, at least the first handful of albums, I for one am glad they are still plodding along and this song is OK, nothing more. I truly HATE the Def Lep influences and bologna ALL over that Shock song. Tesla is NOT supposed to 348 layered tracks of overdubs and other BS. And even though they harmonize and such very well that whole compressed Def Lep chorus/vocal influence is just gross when attached to Tesla. 2 separate bands and let's keep them that way please and thank you! PLEASE give me some more Great Radio Controversy Tesla! Which even though Mechanical Resonance was and is a stellar debut GRC is their best effort, bar none.

    Harley - Ready To Hurt

    https://www.facebook.com/HarleyRocksOfficial/ Fun and simple like Talks Cheap meets Cinderella.

    Chontaraz - Speed The Bullet

    I was initially going to remove myself from the thread based on the ghoul grease paint freeze frame on the YouTube clip, but I persevered and clicked and was pleasantly surprised by a fairly solid modern metal tune with a grip of Rammsteiney electronic elements tossed in. However older clips are full on screamo grossness. https://www.facebook.com/chontaraz/

    The End: machine - s/t

    Upon further examination I see that the band is now called The End Machine. This too is a stupid name. I thought in first passing that they were just going by the End and even though that was questionable I let it go.

    Piqued Jacks

    Stumbled on this band trolling YouTube and was smitten from the start. Very nice, catchy stuff. At times just a mellow modern rock band, at times a little Jamarouqui... SHRUG https://www.facebook.com/piquedjacks/ Tell me what you think. I think KarpetRyde will dig them.

    Didn't see anything here on this very nice prog metal/hard rock band called Mindlane. Seems they have an LP dropping in February of 2019 entitled Darkest Matter. Here is the single: https://www.facebook.com/mindlaneband http://www.mindlane.se/ Looks like this is the bands 3rd release...
