Not the same site anymore

Recommended Posts

Was very surprised to see the name Bonnie Tyler (see topic under this) here and really got me thinking that this is not the same Heavy Harmonies anymore.

 

This is not to say that I oppose the inclusion of artists like Ms. Tyler. I don't have that much knowledge of what are the boundaries of melodic rock or where or when you start labeling an artist as AOR. Seeing names like Chicago, Bonnie Tyler and Kenny Rogers Jr. just give me the feeling that this is not the same site that I was very excited to go to. Of course, with the discovery of long-forgotten recordings, names and titles will keep adding up but can you imagine seeing those names in this site six years ago?

 

Just a thought.

I reckon we should weild the axe ona heap of the acts getting included on HH.

Or drop "heavy" from the title and just call it "harmonies".

 

Sure, not everything on the main site is "heavy", but those that aren't heavy atelast have their roots in from the rock era of the 80's.

For example, ... Bon Jovi once a hard rock band, now just a radio rock band would still qualify based on their past, but a band never having had any ties with the hard/melodic/glam rock scene should not appear.

 

Just my 2c.

 

 

BTW, did you read what the Bonnie Tyler thread was about?

This exactly.

My $0.02 (which is worth so much less than even Canada these days... ):

 

Ever since I've been a member (and I am member #19 for the record) there have been conversations about what's right/wrong for inclusion. Some I agree with, some not, but because the vast majority has always been, and continues to be what I think is a good fit I'm not going anywhere. In my opinion not all that much has changed here other than the people frequenting the boards, and they continue to be good people (except Wes) so I continue to stick around.

 

To me this site continues to be the best, most user friendly and although not complete free of internal politics, it's for damn sure closer than any of the "other" sites.

 

In short I like it here. :)

My feeling is there are two kinds of music...good and bad... although I'm a DIE HARD

Metalhead,I also love Blues, 60's Rock, some 80's New wave, 70's Punk Rock etc.

As long as we don't include RAP...I'm fine..and for the record I do like Some Rap...

I must admit that there are a few bands/musicians included on HH that make me shake my head but there's no way you're gonna have unanimous agreement on a topic like this so as long as the Bonnie Tylers of the world don't take over the site...it's no big deal....

Don't try and fool us aM1966. When I came into your office the other day I heard Tupac blasting from your CD player. And then the next day you were listening to 50 cent. I know you tried to switch it to Shadows Fall in the attempt that your "keeping it metal." But I'm onto you you closet rap fan!

Is HH the same as it was 6 yrs. ago? No.

 

Are there bands/artists listed here that don't belong? Yes.

 

Is it possible to have unanimous agreement on this subject? No.

 

Is this still the greatest melodic rock site on the web? Yes.

 

Do I wish Pete wasn't here? Uh, no comment.

I've been viewing the main site for about 3-4 years and have been a member of the forum for over 2 years now. I've seen changes in that 2 years but I still love this place. I don't like evrything that gets put on this board but there is some stuff that I never heard of and see it for sale. Often times it is described as great 80's AOR, MHR, glam, etc or even comparing them a band from our genre. Seeing some of the comments about what these artist really sound like on this site has help me eliminate from picking up some shit that people try pawning off using our genre. So as far as I concerned, it may be questionable weather or not it should be on here but it has helped me from wasting my hard earned cash.

The question "if Dan is #2, who was #1?" has been bugging the hell outta me ever since I first noticed it, but I never found the right opportunity to ask ... :banana:

Ok, i'm going to add my .02 cents. What makes me say to myself....WTF, how can bands like Sacred warrior, Angelica, Holy Soldier, Stryper, Bloodgood and bands alike be in both HH and in Heaven's Metal? But bands like Judas Priest, Obsession, Malice, Artch, Feinstein and bands just a similar not be in HH. I think....and this is my opinion....an alignment is in order! Or just combine the other two to make one large database. Which leads to this question, how many here in HH are actually going to the other two sites and how often or maybe Dan can answer this..... how many hits per day do the other sites receive? It's a hell alot easier to do a search when ALL of the bands are listed in one database. Wow...i feel better. :lol:

Good idea. Dan could call it "Heavenly Brutal Harmonious Metal-n-Stuff" or something like that. :lol:

HH/BM/HM used to be one large database/site, but then more and more bands started appearing on the fringe of what HH was about and that was when I split the sites.

 

If people are complaining about Bonnie Tyler being on HH, methinks they might complain just a wee bit about Emperor or Marduk being included...

    • In theory it is D2. It is the Revolve line up with the vocalists swapped. Makes you kinda think that the only reason that was the last D2 album and no follow up is due to Poley. I remember Ravel saying there would be no more D2 as the recording process of Revolve was such hard work, and seeing as all three other members are recording together here, it kinda starts to look like the issue is with the vocalist.
    • From sleazeroxx.com: Playhouse to release new album ‘The Rock N’ Roll Circus’ on November 10th Canadian hard rockers, Playhouse, will be releasing their first new album in more than 25 years with the release of The Rock N’ Roll Circus on November 10, 2018. The group will be having a CD launch party at the Piranha Bar in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on November 10, 2018. Playhouse‘s “Story” on their Facebook page states (with slight edits): “Formed during the height of the 80’s hard rock invasion, five high school friends wanted to play loud! The year was 1987 and they had one goal, to be the biggest rock band to ever come out of Canada. Playhouse released two E.P..’s; 1989’s Little Monster and the follow up; Tongue, Tied & Twisted in 1990. With a reputation for high energy shows and big chorus anthems. they quickly started filling every club they played. Now armed with a dedicated fan base solidly behind them, local promoters came calling. Soon, Playhouse found themselves opening for the likes of Extreme, Killer Dwarfs,Brighton Rock, Harem Scarem and many more. Then after 8 years together in the Rock n Roll Circus, the band called it quits…and now, almost 25 years later, THEY ARE BACK! In the fall of 2016, the band reunited and entered the studio for the first time together in over 20 years with veteran recording producer and lead guitarist for Slaves on Dope, Kevin Jardine to record three new songs. The first video “On Fire” was released in September 2016 with a follow up video released a few months later for “Stand Up And Fight.” In November 2017, Playhouse returned to the stage after 25 year with their sold out comeback show in Montreal, Canada.   Check out this earlier thread on these guys: https://heavyharmonies.ipbhost.com/topic/35094-playhouse/        
    • no......it.......doesn't 
    • Drinking my Beaujolais nouveau (Vive La France for your beautiful traditions!!!!!) while spinning them back to back on vinyl (Jaysus, sound is incredible on both vinyls!!!!) and still GOC wipes the floor with Tunguska(what a waste of a great title, btw!). 
    • wow. I'll leave that comment there. in terms of this album - it's a boring one paced generic album. Martennson needs to regather himself for the Eclipse album next year and produce something truly exciting 
    • Very nice.
      Poppier and more of a radio song than usual.
      Will be nice if there is a range of styles/moods/vibes/etc on the album
