I dig it. Reminds me of a band I just can't place at the moment... and it's not a modern one I'm thinking of. I hope I can track down this CD... defenitely dig what I heard here. Thanks for the heads up. 'Every street of sorrow' is awesome... who do these guys sound like??!!! Almost a little like Smilek, I think it is.

I was listening to the CD this morning... 'Walk the wild'. I even did a Google search this morning to see if there was any link between these guys and Falcon Scream, because IMO these guys are dead ringers. This could pretty much be Falcon Scream's 2nd album. The other comparison I'm sticking with is a slight similarity to Smilek, though not as good.

 

Of the album, I thought it was very solid, good hard rock. Nothing modern about it at all... just straight up hard rock. 'Every street of sorrow' is a gem. Definitely worth checking out for Falcon Scream fans.

I like this. I will buy this. I will rock and beautiful women will swoon at my feet like they did for Geoff when he saucily sauntered down the seediest streets in Melbourne wearing nothing but Speedos while sipping on the biggest pink beverage money his expense account could buy.

You can now listen to all tracks from HARD SPIRIT "Walk The Wild" on a website called mp3spy.ru. In addition, you can also pay to download individual songs or all the tracks from the cd to your computer as well. My question is though, since Hard Spirit's official website and mypsace page is not in english, has anyone figured out what the official release date for this cd actually is? I'm itchin' to get my hands on it.

I've been in contact with band member Toni over the past several months. He has finally gotten a paypal account set up to accept cd orders for their Hard Spirit "Walk The Wild" cd. He advised he just shipped my cd out and that I should receive it within 10 to 12 days. I told him that I probably had numerous people who might be interested in purchasing their cd. Toni advised it was ok if I gave out his e-mail address so that anyone interested in a copy can contact him. With the exchange rate, it cost me like $23 to have the cd shipped. Toni will send out a paypal request e-mail so that you don't have to do the conversion yourself. Toni's e-mail is aamboaje@hotmail.com

 

P.S. Currently, this is the only way to purchase this cd that I know of. It is not available through their website or myspace page. The tiny little label Triple A Metal or whatever it was called that they are on has site error issues and you cannot confirm your order through them. Basically, this is already a hard gem to come by. Show 'em some love.

Wow, I'd really like to have this one... but $23? Bit steep for me. :(

 

As I said above... essential for Falcon Scream fans. Very strong album.

I received this cd yesterday. It is very professional looking...it's silver pressed and comes with front and back artwork. The front booklet is complete with photos, lyrics, etc. Great sound production as well. Guitars are kickin' and the vocals and choruses are pretty big on most of the tracks. The lead singer's got a bit of an accent but nothing too distracting. Again, the conversion rate comes out to about $23 if you contact Toni personally through the e-mail I gave out in my other post.

 

P.S. I will have one copy available for sale soon.

I initially really liked this, but it didn't age well. I always thought they sounded a lot like Falcon Scream and still do. I'd still be interested enough to check out the dude's solo album. That looks about as easy to find as an intelligent christian, though.

    • 1976, AC/DC they just came back from their first tour of England at old Festival Hall.
    • OBITUARY   Christine McVie, Keyboardist and Singer for Fleetwood Mac, Dead at 79 The singer-songwriter was responsible for some of the group's biggest hits like "Don't Stop" and "Little Lies" BY JON BLISTEIN NOVEMBER 30, 2022 English singer, songwriter and keyboardist Christine McVie of rock band Fleetwood Mac, UK, 18th January 1969.EVENING STANDARD/HULTON ARCHIVE/GETTY IMAGES CHRISTINE MCVIE, THElongtime co-lead vocalist, keyboardist, and songwriter for Fleetwood Mac, has died. She was 79.  The band confirmed McVie’s death in a note shared on social media. “There are no words to describe our sadness at the passing of Christine McVie. She was truly one-of-a-kind, special and talented beyond measure. She was the best musician anyone could have in their band and the best friend anyone could have in their life. We were so lucky to have a life with her. Individually and together, we cherished Christine deeply and are thankful for the amazing memories we have. She will be so very missed.” In a statement, McVie’s family said she died today, Nov. 30, at a hospital “following a short illness.” The statement continued: “She was in the company of her family. We kindly ask that you respect the family’s privacy at this extremely painful time, and we would like everyone to keep Christine in their hearts and remember the life of an incredible human being, and revered musician who was loved universally. RIP Christine McVie.”   McVie joined Fleetwood Mac in 1970. She went on to write (and co-write) some of the band’s most memorable songs, including the Rumours classics “Don’t Stop” and “You Make Loving Fun,” as well as “Hold Me,” “Little Lies,” and “Over My Head.” Though she stuck with the band through some pretty tumultuous years, especially during the early Nineties, she left the group after their big 1998 reunion tour. After a lengthy hiatus off the stage and out of the public eye, she returned to Fleetwood Mac in 2014 and was playing with them as recently as 2019. Throughout her tenure in Fleetwood Mac, McVie almost seemed like the calm eye in the middle the storm that was the rest of the band. “That is apparently true, but I didn’t realize that at the time,” she quipped in an interview with Rolling Stone earlier this year. “Yes, I was supposedly like the Mother Teresa who would hang out with everybody or just try and [keep] everything nice and cool and relaxed. But they were great people; they were great friends. McVie was born Christine Anne Perfect on July 12, 1943, her father a concert violinist and music professor, her mother a psychic medium and faith healer. Perfect started playing piano as a child, studying classical music until she was a teenager, at which point her interests turned blues and rock and roll.  TRENDING How Trump Got Trolled by a Couple of Fascists Organ-Devouring ‘Liver King’ Blasted by Bodybuilders Over Alleged Steroid Use Christine McVie, Keyboardist and Singer for Fleetwood Mac, Dead at 79 Adam Sandler Let His Daughters Write His Gotham Awards Speech — And They Absolutely Roasted Him   She played in a variety of bands during the Sixties, forming the most notable one, Chicken Shack, with Andy Silvester and Stan Webb, in 1968.

    • My first live experience was D-A-D on April 22, 1995, at a venue which had a capacity of 6000 people. It was on their Helpyourselfish tour, and every song from that album was included on a setlist consisting of 24 songs. They were at the height of their career both musically and popularity-wise. I've seen them about 15 times, but this April night was something special.  
    • I thought you hate Synthwave. Why did you buy The Midnight?
    • shame you missed Skid Row. They were great back then 
    • Almost impossible to separate my top 10 as most could easily swap position (especially 1 & 2 !!). But I gave it a go. 1. Threshold - Dividing Lines Only just recently released but this was always going to be a huge album for me. 5 yrs since the release of Shires but the wait was worth it. This is a masterpiece in my opinion - melody, lyrics, vocals, musicianship, hooks all amazing. 2. Ghost - Imperia For a long while this was top of the pack and was definitely my most listened to album of 2022. The last 2 Ghost albums were amazing and this is no different. Great production, arrangements - this something really different and unique. Best gig of 2022 as well - their show at London O2 was stunning 3. Muse - Will of the People Biggest surprise of the year. Never would have imagined that a Muse album would feature in my best of list let alone end up no 3!! Easily their best album to date , love every track. Short at just 37 mins, but I love that. No filler, all killer album. Brilliant lyrics and subject matter as well 4. VHS Collection - Night Drive Never has an album title been so accurate. This album is made for night time driving - just an awesome vibe, brilliant songs. Top job all round 5. Alter Bridge - Pawns & Kings Monumental metal album. Dark, deep lyrically, crunching Tremonti riffs. Love it. 6 Kissin Dynamite - Not The End of the Road Another surprise for me. Never been the biggest KD fan but man they nailed it on this. Barely a filler in sight and easily the best pure melodic rock album of 2022 7. Degreed - Are You Ready Another top quality album from one of my fav bands. Really hate the song Radio though which keeps this out of the top 5 8. Dan Reed Network - Let's Hear it for the King I do dearly love this album, and agonised a bit over its placing, but the albums above are just too good. Massive return to form and I pretty much love every track with 'I See Angels' probably bring my fav ballad of 2022 9. Cats in Space - Kickstart the Sun Another album which could be top 5 on any given day. Just a couple of weaker tracks pull it down slightly but stuff like the title track & Smoke & Mirrors are top drawer. Brilliant vocals as well. 10. Iron Allies - Blood In Blood Out Late addition to my top 10 but my God this album is awesome! Best thing Reece has been on in years and old school metal album of the year imo. Just crunching metal and sensational solos. Go to gym album So now we come to honourable mentions - in no order - all v good albums in their own right : Reckless Love - excellent attempt at synthwave Chez Kane - another great 80s throwback Skid Row - Erik breaths new life into old dogs Palace - great bunch of feel good songs Crashdiet - best album since GW Treat - more great modern melodic rock Black Swan - better than the debut Ultraboss - v nice synthwave album Ronnie Atkins - Bit of a dip but still v nice Young Gun Silver Fox - best Westcoast 2022 Do there you go, 20 great albums which I would recommend. I really good year in music with a few surprises for me. 👍
    • Up until 2007 only local bands performing cover songs. 2008, my first ever international experience and it was an awesome one. It was Mr.Big's reunion tour. 
    • New video for 'LARP'. From Frontiers: Infinite & Divine, a collaboration between two Swedish musicians, guitarist/songwriter/producer Jan Åkesson and vocalist Tezzi (a/k/a Terese Persson), will release their sophomore album, "Ascendancy" on February 10, 2023.  In the summer of 2019, Jan and Tezzi first encountered one another and shortly after that set to work on writing songs for what would ultimately become their debut album, ”Silver Lining”. Said album was a fantastic combination of Jan’s energetic heavy riffs, the influences of their varied taste in melodic hard rock and metal, and Tezzi’s melodic, yet powerful vocals. "Ascendancy" sees the two taking that songwriting formula and building upon it to craft an even more thrilling and energetic album, highlighting all their strengths.  Terese "Tezzi" Persson started her musical career doing local troubadour gigs at the age of 17, but before that had already started writing her own songs and lyrics. Over the years, she has appeared in different musical projects both as a lead singer in metal and progressive rock bands, as well as doing backup vocals for various Swedish artists. In 2013, she also appeared on the second album, “Fantasmagoria,” from Epysode (featuring Mike Lepond of Symphony X, Simone Mularoni of DGM, and Tom Englund of Evergrey among others). In 2021, she partnered up with four other stunning lead vocalists in the pop metal outfit Venus 5, whose self-titled debut album was released in June 2022.  Jan Åkesson started out as a songwriter while also appearing as lead guitarist in several bands, before he decided to step back from the live scene to focus on writing and producing songs. He started the band StoneLake, who released seven studio albums, while at the same time writing songs for other artists around the world, all who were performing different styles of music. In 2017, he also released the album ”Ascension” by his solo project Shadow Rain.  The band’s music is extremely tasteful, and the listeners will enjoy very good moments with songs as “I Feel Alive” (a modern feeling similar to what can be found on AMARANTHE’s works, but with precious melodies and great vocals), the 80’s hooking melodies of “Infinite & Divine” and “Not Too Late”, the melodic Hard Rock appeal shown on “Wasteland” and “We Are One”, the tender and precious harmonies of “You and I” and “While You’re Looking for Love” (this one has the same appeal of heavier songs of DEF LEPPARD’s “Hysteria”) are the ones to become the favorite tracks for the fans. But the entire album is great, so enjoy it. - Metal Temple “Silver Lining” runs the proverbial gamut, touching upon a bevy of metal subgenres while delivering consistently memorable riffs and some pretty impressive lead work. For her part, Persson's vocals elevate much of the material here, adding a soulful, 'human' quality.... - Sonic Perspectives ‘Silver Lining’ is an absolute powerhouse of an album and well worth a listen. - Metal Planet Music Tracklisting:1.

    • First gig was Motley Crue at Birmingham NEC in 1989 with White Lion & Skid Row supporting. I was 14. My 2 uncle's took me so I knew a few weeks in advance and was listening to 'Dr Feelgood' & 'Girls, Girls, Girls' in prep. We didn't arrive in time to see Skid Row. I didn't know them at the time or thus what i was missing. This was the show were Vince through a tantrum and threw his mic into the crowd and walked off - though he/they did return to finish. https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/motley-crue/1989/nec-arena-birmingham-england-2bd7446a.html
