Love that cover. I really liked "Maniacal Renderings" so can't wait for this. Hopefully we'll get a new CIRCLE II CIRCLE album this year too....

There was a news bit about Circle II Circle on Blabbermouth yesterday, I forget exactly what it said, but the gist of it was that there will indeed be a new C-II-C album sometime in 2008. :beerbang:

That's the same name as Burn's last album. Thief!

 

Was their album cover half as cool as this one?? I highly doubt it. <_<

Nah... this one's definitely pretty metal. Looks like a party I had a couple of weekends ago.

Mechanical Renderings was a badass album so I'll be looking forward to this one.

 

There's a new CIIC album this year too, so all of us Sava junkies will have our plates full in 2008. :banger:

 

The only thing that would be better would be a new Savatage album, but that'll probably never ever happen again. :crying:

Are you sure you don't mean "MANIACAL Renderings?" :lol:

Sure if you say so. :lol:

 

I'm not sure what happened there, I guess I had Tesla in my head for some reason. :anon:

Yeah, plenty of pink drinks. Talk about a bunch of guys who can’t hold their drinks, though. Literally. They kept spilling it out through their open necks, if it even made it past their slack jaws. Last time I party with those clowns. No one even appreciated the efforts I went to to get a fresh corpse for the main meal.

So does that mean you were listening to "Maniacal Resonance?" :lol:

Has anyone heard this cd yet?

 

I haven't heard anything about it, is it even out yet?

 

I just heard a song off of it over at AFM's myspace it was killer.

 

Yep I've had this for a while, awesome stuff. Probably better than "Maniacal Renderings". Def check it out.

 

Doesn't make up for how disappointing the new CIRCLE II CIRCLE is though....

Disappointing? CIIC?

 

I think it's pretty damn good. Not as good as the debut or the last album but I like it better than the second one.

I still haven't heard the new J.O.P., and I'm the one who started this damn thread in the first place! Sheesh, I should be ashamed huh? :angry:

I just can't get into it, is much more raw sounding. I've spun it 4 or 5 times & although I love the vocals I'm still not getting any of the tunes to stick in my head. And that f***ing digipack looks awful... I will stick with it....

If anybody still cares, I did finally get my hands on J.O.P.'s GLOBAL WARNING, and it is pretty sh*t kickin... and I liked the new Circle II Circle as well... but in the 2008 Battle of the Former Savatage Vocalists, I think I liked Circle II Circle's album just a lil' bit better.

 

Jon O. still rules tho.

Seriously, UN-BACKED. The last CIIC was one of my very fave Melodic/Power Metal discs, but totally disappointed by the latest - so much so it went into storage with a whole load of other discs I never play. JOP just get better & better, & whereas Zach's clearly the better vocalist, he lost this battle IMO....

I think your the only one that didin't like the new CIIC.

I think it's great but not as great as 'Burden'.

    • Another one I'm sure I've gone on about in the past, but apparently no thread yet.  He doesn't seem to make a lot of music, but when he does it is awesome. Such as this... Paul Bartolome     -    Reflections, Pt.1 1    .    Fractures (feat. Dave Escamilla) 2    .    Anxiety (U Just Don't Get It) 3    .    While We're Still Young 4    .    Burn It Down (feat. David Bartolome) 5    .    Hypocrite   Easily one of the best songs of the year so far-       From the previously very awesome 'Screaming through the radio' EP-  
    • I know I've posted about this hombre several times before, but apparently not in his own thread. This must change as I find him to be so awesome but no one seems to acknowledge his existence. Not just here, but his youtube channel and reach seems to be so small. Crazy for someone who produces bone crunching quality on a madly consistent basis.  Eric Dalton     -    Playing Favorites (2022) 1    .    Calling Card 2    .    Oblivion 3    .    Head in the Clouds 4    .    X My Heart 5    .    Infection 6    .    My Demons 7    .    Solace 8    .    A Part of Me 9    .    Without You 10    .    Deception     Sorry, I know I've posted this before, but his youtube channel features all three of his (excellent) albums in full if interest permits. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb2I3-4_UvFnWWTcXBBLPYA  
    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive      
    • Welcome, album of the year? Love this project with vigour. I snuck 'Saturday' on the playlist I put on with the kids in the car, lol. Can't wait to hear any of the songs I haven't already heard and showered in love from this. 
    • Did anyone notice these guys released another new album?  As expected, it's pretty weak and more proof of their solid decline.  HOWEVER!  There is actually a good song on it. It's only one, but I kind of clapped and cheered when I heard this. I used to love these guys so much, and still love the albums I always loved from these guys but it's been some barren years. It was good to hear them do what they used to do with great ease.      
    • Couple of okay songs, but otherwise as expected above. No surprises, exactly what you'd expect from these guys in 2022.     
    • Not every song is a hit, but another pretty decent one mini-album. I like some of the gear on this one.  Villain of the Story     -    Divided 1    .    Never Again 2    .    Jester 3    .    Karma 4    .    Under My Skin 5    .    Losing Control 6    .    Wrong 7    .    Don't Go 8    .    Divided    
    • Not sure if folk know, but they got back together and released an EP this year. Anberlin     -    Silverline 1    .    Two Graves 2    .    Nothing Lost 3    .    Body Language 4    .    Asking 5    .    Circles It's not amazing, but I do really like this song from it-
