Is anyone here still a fan of this once-great band? Their first few releases were great, especially the third, 'Crack in the wall'... but the last ones have just been terrible, for a long time. Thoughts? ''One million light years from home' was excellent too.

This band went from being a band where each release was essential to my collection... and now I have not even heard 'Last Days of Utopia' and 'Stardawn' because they have left me so cold with 'Artifact' and 'Sixth Dimension'.

If their first cds aren't any better than 'One Million' I'll have to pass on buying them but I really liked 'Artifact' and 'Sixth Dimension'...of course the first release I picked up was 'Artifact' so maybe I'm a bit biased as I think 'One Million' sounds a lot different from anything they released later....

You'd love their 'Crack in the wall' album, mate. Easily their best, imo. Very much in the style of Victory.

 

'Before the storm' might be a little "thin" sounding but I actually really like the CD. Definitely worth picking up. And the debut, 'Our Kingdom' really is a good solid slab of AOR/melodic hard rock. Very consistent and good disc.

 

We may be different, mate, but if you ask me those 4 albums absolutely destroy their last 4 (and I haven't even heard 2 of them lol - but the sad thing is I can predict exactly what they sound like). I think 'One million...' is a great album. :) Well, in parts anyway.

Well maybe I will give 'Crack in the Wall' a chance since I like Victory....if I can find it :unsure:

Pretty much in agreement with everyone else.......I loved this band immensely in the early days. Although I have all of their CDs in my collection, it seems they have reached the pinnacle of their song writing a couple of CDs ago and are no longer creative. I don't seem to get as excited with their newer releases.

  • 3 years later...

I have the first 3 Domain cds but I'm not sure if they are boots or legit. Can anyone post the cd matrix #'s for:

 

Crack in the Wall

Our Kingdom

Before the Storm

 

Any help is very much appreciated.

 

On topic, I like all 3 of these cds but never even checked out anything past that. From the sound of the above post there is no reason to.

    • Press release: Newman are pleased to announce the follow up to 2021’s ”Into The Monsters’ Playground”, the UK Melodic Rock band was formed back in 1997 by Steve Newman and quickly gained a great reputation after releasing their debut, and subsequent ”One Step Closer” albums. A string of high quality releases have ensued throughout the last 20 years insuring a strong and loyal following. Highly respected by fans and fellow musicians alike, this new album will add to the bands great legacy and underline the reason why Newman are considered to be one of the UK’s top Melodic Rock artists. The new album tentatively titled ”Colour In Sound” will be the bands 14th studio album and will be released through AOR BLVD Records in May.

    • Imagine a world where Andrew Wood didn’t die and Mother Love Bone was still creating awesome music!
    • “My Icarian Flight” featuring the one and only ADV 😜  
    • lol, this was my thought process too. What about Confess?! I like both bands, but not at the expense of one of them. 
    • I do have to give him credit for sounding exactly the same as he did in 1989...
    • This band can not catch a break. 
    • Well mate here's the deal Firstly I saw them on their first ever tour with Kenny. Yep was great. Then I saw them about 10 times with Erik. Each and every time they were utterly fantastic. Erik is a beast live and one of the best singers I've seen period. Then he leaves and they get Kenny back 10 years on and way past his best imo and quite frankly pretty poor compared to what Erik bought.  For me, no matter how well they play its just not the same without Erik.  If youve never seen the band with Erik you probably wont understand. So yeah I stand by my comment.  I'll probably never see them live again tbh
