    Roulette

    Nice tune, looking forward to this album finally being released, all 4 promo tracks have sounded good to me
  2. Inglorious indicated a few months ago that they had finished recording the songs for their third album, hinted as being heavier than their prior releases, which should be released via Frontiers in February 2019. The first song/video from the upcoming album is out now https://www.planetrock.com/news/rock-news/inglorious-say-heavier-third-album-is-done-and-reveal-release-date/

    Worst discs of 2018

    Rox Diamond - Let the Music Do the Talking. There were several weak albums last year, but in most cases I could still point to some positive aspects about them. Whether it be good musicianship, quality production, a good track or two, etc. But I'd be hard pressed to find anything complimentary to say about this release. Weak production, terrible songwriting, and an overall piss poor effort from a band whose prior two releases I enjoyed.

    Tesla - Shock

    agreed, especially during the mid-break of the song between the 2:20 and 2:54 mark, it has a definite Lep vibe

    DeVicious - Reflections

    Seems like a quick turnaround by these guys, has it even been a full year since the debut was released? The debut had a couple of nice tracks and this new song sounds pretty good as well.

    Tesla - Shock

    It's ok, I like the chorus, but was hoping for something more uptempo for a first single. Similar to the new Tora Tora it seems to lack the energy and spark of old, they sing about a shot of adrenaline but the song sort of plods along, especially during the verses. For me it is at least a step in the right direction after Simplicity, which I thought was by far their worst album.

    Tora Tora - Bastards Of Beale

    yeah, I'd agree neither track is as good as the three songs you mentioned, but I do think the style is similar to that earlier material which is probably why it appeals to me

    Tora Tora - Bastards Of Beale

    doesn't blow me away but I like it, very much a straight forward late 80's style hard rock song, sounds like it could have easily been written during the Surprise Attack sessions

    Guess Dan's top 5 of 2018!

    hmmm...quite the puzzle, I thought State of Salazar was correct based on Mike's earlier list but maybe it was Palace? If so, then Ghost is not correct which would mean Dynazty is likely the other (with KD) correct answer from Glen's list.

    Guess Dan's top 5 of 2018!

    well, that likely eliminates Creye, I'd suggest next person consider trying State of Salazar from Mike's list and either Ghost or Dynazty from Glen's list, placing them in spots 1, 4 or 5

    Guess Dan's top 5 of 2018!

    Ok, I'll take another guess at it... Amaranthe Kissin' Dynamite Care of Night Creye Disturbed

    Guess Dan's top 5 of 2018!

    Alright, here we go, my guess of Dan's Top 5 of 2018 is as follows Kissin’ Dynamite – Ecstasy W.E.T. – Earthrage Beyond the Black - Heart of the Hurricane Care of Night – Love Equals War Tremonti – A Dying Machine

    The End: machine - s/t

    solid tune, hopefully they have a few uptempo tracks on the album, I'd like to hear George cut loose with some monster riffs and solos
  14. Crazysam

    Degreed - Ruins

    solid album track, but neither of the recent promo tracks have that wow factor that we've become accustomed to from these guys, like 'Shakedown' did for example
  15. Crazysam

    Kane Roberts - The New Normal

    another fairly average song with poor production, on the positive side he did add a guitar solo to this one
  16. Crazysam

    Battle Beast - No More Hollywood Endings

    Nice tune, this may have been accidentally placed in the wrong thread, but I suppose if you're a fan of one you probably will enjoy both bands, so we can consider it cross promotion

    Burning Rain - Face The Music

    Always enjoy hearing Doug and Keith tear it up, sounds similar in style to their prior releases which works for me
  18. Crazysam

    Top-5 2018 (at the moment)

    agreed, the first half of their latest album is really good, especially the opening track 'Hysteria'
  19. Crazysam

    Dream Police - Raw In The Middle

    quite right, that guitar intro does sound similar
  20. Crazysam

    Dream Police - Raw In The Middle

    sounds pretty good, I still spin their debut regularly

    Crashdiet: New singer and new album(?)

    I'm liking the aggressive sound of that, nice way to kick off the new year

    Lillian Axe new single

    Yeah the stuff Ron did after leaving the band was also quite different, so his departure may have truly been a result of not wanting to tour anymore. Hard to say though what they would sound like had he stayed.

    Lillian Axe new single

    As others have mentioned, I always thought their first four albums were great. Even Fields of Yesterday, with previously unreleased material, had some good tracks. This new song is everything I dislike about modern day Lillian Axe, slow, dreary and lacking the great melodies of those early albums. Waters Rising wasn't too far removed from Psycho, I believe raw demos of those same songs with Taylor on vocals were floating around years ago. Starting with that album though the songwriting style shifted closer to Blaze's other band, Near Life Experience, and unfortunately I've been unable to get into much of it

    The Poodles are no more

    disappointing news, the debut is still my favorite followed closely by Clash of the Elements, but their other albums were solid too

    Hollowstar

    Sounds pretty good, thanks for sharing
