  1. great choices, I'm a big fan of those as well, speaking of Blue Murder, do you think Sykes is ever going to release that album he finished recording awhile back? I thought we'd finally get to hear it last year but once again things fell apart
  2. Yeah, I'm picking up a little bit of a latter day Bon Jovi vibe in this new song too. Not bad, but not what I was expecting
  3. Nice playlist, it is pretty extensive, so apologies if I overlooked that you already have these included. Just a few artists I think are worth checking out, if you haven't before. If you don't like these particular songs I think the albums they are found on are good, so you might find a different track to your liking. Kane Roberts – Rebel Heart Icon – A Far Cry Cold Sweat - Take This Heart of Mine Gotthard – Let It Be Shotgun Messiah – Heartbreak Boulevard McQueen Street – Only the Wind Fifth Angel – Midnight Love
  4. I listened to this one today and thoroughly enjoyed it. Has more of a modern rock feel to it than what I usually listen to. Musically it's heavier than her last album but the songs retain plenty of melody. Nicely produced, with nothing I'd really consider as filler material. I think this release is a nice step forward for her.
  5. Primal Fear's upcoming new album 'Metal Commando' was produced by Mat Sinner and is due out July 24th via Nuclear Blast Records. I'm digging the latest track I Am Alive https://media.nuclearblast.de/shoplanding/2020/PrimalFear/metal-commando.html 01. I Am Alive 02. Along Came The Devil 03. Halo 04. Hear Me Calling 05. The Lost & The Forgotten 06. My Name Is Fear 07. I Will Be Gone 08. Raise Your Fists 09. Howl Of The Banshee 10. Afterlife 11. Infinity
  6. decent tune, at least it's better than the lead single off the last album
  7. always cool to hear something new from these guys, even if it isn't one of their better efforts
  8. new track is just OK for me, bit of a letdown after the great first single though
  9. I agree with the overall consensus on this release. A couple of good tracks like this one, but too many mediocre songs and an overall lackluster sound prevents the album from being a keeper for me.
  10. new track sounds pretty good to me
  11. After enjoying their last album, Heart of the Hurricane, I had fairly high expectations for this release. But unlike a few other bands this year, Beyond the Black delivered. This might not appeal to everyone on the forum, but is highly recommended for fans of female fronted modern rock with some symphonic metal influences. While they still have a foot firmly planted in hard rock/metal this moves the band a little further towards the commercial side of the genre. The tracks 'Misery' and 'I Won't Surrender' are good examples of that, as I could easily see those songs being performed by a num
  12. Good to see Tommy is still actively making music. I always felt he brought a lot of the energy to those early Tesla albums which has been lacking on recent material. I gave this a spin today and thought it was a decent album. Some moments naturally remind of Tesla, but with a little rawer feel, almost like a bit of old G n' R sprinkled in here and there. The vocals seemed a little buried in the mix though. And unfortunately none of the songs really stuck with me. Worth checking out for fans of Tesla and especially of Tommy, but initially this one misses the mark for me.
  13. sounding good to me as well, I've enjoyed all 3 tracks and plan to order a copy of the EP to support the band's efforts
  14. This looks pretty cool. I saw a few YT videos with some music artists talking about it or unboxing it. I'm sure they had it comp'd and their opinions are pretty biased. Nevertheless the videos gave a glimpse of some of the great photos and stories that are included.
  15. I haven't watched recently, but awhile back I had set it to record regularly and to my dismay I noticed the same thing. I don't know if it has something to do with permissions or financial reasons, but with the massive library they should have to choose from I expected a lot more variety. One of those cases where telling people that if you've seen one episode you've seen them all isn't a stretch.
  16. new song isn't as good as the first single, but still a solid track
  17. Agreed Cockroach is my favorite, but both albums are great. And with Cockroach you don't have to wonder how the tracks would have sounded with the other guy on vocals. You're able to listen to both Ted's and Paul's interpretations and decide for yourself which is better
  18. That describes it well. I thought Freewheelin' was a pretty good album and seemed like a logical next step for the band musically. But Funk-O-Metal Carpet Ride remains their best, in my opinion.
  19. yeah, that first track sounds excellent
  20. sad and surprising news, he never really got a lot of recognition but his resume speaks for itself, RIP Bob
  21. thanks for sharing, I'm not familiar with these guys at all, but sounds pretty good
  22. I think that might be worth starting a thread for, if there isn't one already. And you both picked albums worthy of consideration. I'd probably slide WOA and NFO down a bit, good albums, just personal preference. My top 5 debuts during that time frame would be Brother Firetribe The Magnificent One Desire First Signal W.E.T. But could just as easily have included one of the D2 guys projects as Marcello Vestry, Tokyo Motor Fist and The Defiants all put out great debuts.
  23. I'm not feeling the new track either, just falls flat for me unfortunately
  24. I really enjoyed this one, pretty much on par with the first album. I would have preferred they used one vocalist throughout, as the inconsistencies in that area can detract at times. But just a bit of nitpicking on my part.
  25. I think it's only natural to have a few comments that are somewhat critical of a follow up of a great release when it simply isn't as good. Sure the production is well done and musically I think they took a step forward with some of the arrangements. But for me it comes down to the fact that there are fewer standouts and more tracks I'll likely skip on future spins, when compared to the debut.
