  1. The sound is a bit strange on that album. On the one hand very powerful but the guitars are almost a bit too loud, the drums are a bit quiet here and there except for the ride bell, which is always very present. Backing choirs do not sound as big as on their other albums. Vocals on call of the wild sound like he shouted into a letter box. But I like most of the songs, the last few are a bit weaker than the first.
  2. I already wrote a little bit about the samples. Now that the whole songs are out I got reminded why they were my favourite band until they broke up. They got some crazy energy and they're a puzzle... 4 great musicians who leave enough space for each other to shine. Even though here and there there could be a bit more space for the vocals but yeah, guitars were the concept of this album and that's fine. Trond is probably my favourite living guitar player, nobody writes riffs like him. In my earlier post I said Trond (Teeny) sings Call of the wild. Have to correct that, it's Bernt (Flash).
  3. I actually think it's better than Eclipse because the difference that I see is Eric Martensson is using the same formula for every song, even the guitar always sounds the same, it plays very similar riffs and so on. The W.e.t album that's released tomorrow has the same songs on it as the previous Eclipe album, at least you could think so by listening both albums once. He's writing great songs and I bought the last two Eclipse albums but I think in Ronnie's song there's less formula, more real feelings. And I prefer Ronnie's voice. It has this "hey, I experienced a lot, let me tell you" charact
  4. This song sounds exactly like a Crazy Lixx song, so it's basically just the voice that makes the difference and I automatically compare her voice to Danny. Have to say that though she's got a great voice, I prefer Danny. She doesn't sing that special. About the Itunes samples... most of these songs feel like Crazy Lixx songs that weren't good enough for the album except for 'Rocket on the radio', 'get it on' and 'ball n' chain'. These songs I wouldn't mind being on a Crazy Lixx album. Get it on reminds me of "She's mine" which is one my favourite CL songs.
  5. In eurovision there used to be some dark songs in the past and most of the time they are pretty popular. I really like this song and wouldn't mind seeing him in the contest. Live he can deliver I guess
  6. Sounds exactly like the new album from Pyramaze I bought last year. 2 good songs though
  7. I guess Messiah would have been a better second single but I really like Medusa, too. It maybe misses a little highlight in the last minute.
  8. Just listened to the Itunes samples and it made me pretty sentimental. For me that album isn't about how many good songs there are or if there are songs that I don't like. This album is a lot of strength that Ronnie Atkins gives to the whole world. Pretty maids was never among my top 5 bands because on every album were a few songs I didn't like but they always managed to give me some moments I was close to tears (little drops of heaven, bullet for you, Will you still kiss me, shadowlands) and I just can't imagine there comes a day without new music from PM and Ronnie. He's incurable they say s
  9. Pretty good voice but it feels like he's trying to sound like Erik. I hope that he gets a better balance between the loud and the calm voice. In that video he more or less shouted the whole song
  10. Most choruses on the new album are not that exploding but I really like that song. Overall their music is more relaxed than those over the top - hymn bands
  11. I think people still see them as a teeny emo band with only female fans but these days are over, they are doing professionell, adult, melodic heavy rock and they are really talented musicians.
  12. Normally don't like screaming and growling. Their last album had some cool songs because it wasn't that heavy. Soilwork, Avatar and Amaranthe are the only death-vocal bands I like here and there. These new songs don't do anything for me though...
  13. I like it. Don't need the "ooh ooh's" but they are in every Black veil brides song.
  14. 1. Rock And Roll Radio - good opener, I miss a third chorus run-through but I'm gonna use the replay button for more choruses. 2. Castaway - similar structure which is a bit strange to me... anyway pretty decent 3. Way Up Here - loved that song from the first time I heard it. 4. Cold Ones - actually very simple chorus but has a huge effect on me, love it, too. 5. Eleonora - didn't like it too much on the first listen but it definitely grows. 6. Hot Steel - love the guitar in the verse, the other parts are decent but nothing special. Looking forward to drive to th
  15. Itunes samples are out in New Zealand­čśů I was really a bit nervous before listening because WigWam was my absolutely favourite band before they split up. I'd like to do a little sample by sample review Never say die - great song, typical wig wam hymn Hypnotized - Great riff, very Wall Street sounding, weak chorus Shadows of eternity - Very simple but working chorus, vocals a bit overshadowed by guitars. Kilimanjaro - very southern sounding, sounds a bit back to the roots with a darker edge, overall very dark sounding album to this point Where does it
