Check out Love To Hate, Rise and NME

 

:headbanger:

Nice call. It's crankin' and in your face, yet still catchy and melodic at times. I'm gonna go try and track down my copy today.

This 'Rise' album is some very very nice in-your-face hard rock. Some kick-ass solos on this one too. I can't remember exactly what my faves were, but off the top of my head I think 'True faith' which apparently is a cover (who are New Order???) and the beautiful ballad 'Let go' was a definite highlight. This song is beautiful, but overall the whole album is a bit of a (nice) kick in the face.

 

Aggressive yet melodic tunes. As I said in another thread, the vocalist starts out a little rough around the edges for me, but that's a minor detail. The songs are more than good enough to compensate and when he does "gruff down" towards the end of the album (which is slower) he shows a nice side to his voice. Great disc. Thanks for the heads up.

New Order were an 80's British techno-pop band. I kinda thought they were big globally but maybe not... "True Faith" is a great tune though!

 

I really loved the sound of this & ordered it immediately. Thanks for the tip!

I did find one copy left at an FYE in my local mall. I think Geoff pretty much summed up a good review on this one. I wasn't blown away by ballad "Let Go" though. Thought they dropped the ball on the chorus there. As stated, the vocalist does take a little getting used to, but this is definitely crankin' hard rock/metal with some ballsy chrouses and riffs. The last song "Love To Hate" is a rippin' track too.

Yeah, it's a track that definitely builds up and I didn't even notice the chorus the first time, but by the third chorus some beautiful atmosphere has been created. I just thought it was a very nice tune. :) 'Cause I'm a pansy.

Um, yeeeeah, beautiful atmosphere isn't an ingredient I require out of my metal bands, but I digress :P

There is nothing more metal than beautiful atmosphere. :)

Geoff, it's official, you are a poser, not a pureblooded metalhead. Your Headbanger's Club membership is hereby revoked. :bye: Then again, if it makes you feel better, the Club threw me out too once they found out I hate Iron Maiden...

 

On topic, I checked out the samples for Anew Revolution and liked what I heard.

Yo doods, did any of you guys check out their 2nd album, 'Imerica' from 2010?

 

Whilst on my escapades recently I was on Last FM looking for bands that apparently sound similar to Destrophy and Stealing Eden, and these guys popped up. I'd forgotten about them. So I went and bought both the CDs. Listening to 'Rise' again, I was surprised by how weak it sounded. The drums really weren't very metallic at all. :lol: Still, the album's got some good tunes on it.

 

I put on the 2nd one afterwards and they really stepped it up in terms of production / sound / balls. It's definitely heavier, and some of the solos are deadset screamers. Personally, I don't think the songs were quite as good as the best on the debut, but the second one was probably a more complete and consistent CD. Around track 4 or so there was a surprisingly melodic tune, but for the most part it's pretty heavy modern rock, with a slight lean towards nu-metal at times. And the vocals are aggressive throughout, and for me, hard to take. I just plain and simply don't like that side to the dood's voice.

    • No he can push all he wants, he can bitch and fight and argue, and say the most insane liberal shit he can think of, but first this morning I had to fucking hear it from Karisa, then I get on here to escape her and Glens being a disrespectful motherfucker, we can talk shit, and insult each other, and clown and make fun, and be mean as we want, but when you start talking to me like im a fucking punk then my attitude will follow suit, Ive gone above and beyond to treat HH community with respect and I am about as laid back as your going to find me on here, but if we are gonna be mean, then just get it out in the open, cause I got zero problem with mean, but dont think for a second im not gonna be mean back, theres a huge line between trolling and talking to someone like their a bitch, trust me I know, I do both daily, this is the last im going to say about this, this is my position, so laugh it up, make your jokes, talk your shit, then drop it, fuckin liberals, lol
    • What is the new Covid variant and why is it a concern? Scientists have detected a new Covid-19 variant called B.1.1.529 and are working to understand its potential implications. About 100 confirmed cases have been identified in South Africa, Hong Kong, Israel and Botswana.   B.1.1.529 has a very unusual constellation of mutations, which are worrying because they could help it evade the body’s immune response and make it more transmissible, scientists have said. Any new variant that is able to evade vaccines or spread faster than the now-dominant Delta variant may pose a significant threat as the world emerges from the pandemic. Dr Susan Hopkins, the chief medical adviser to the UK Health Security Agency, said the R value, or effective reproduction number, of the B.1.1.529 variant in the South African province of Gauteng, where it was first found, was now 2 – a level of transmission not recorded since the beginning of the pandemic, before restrictions began to be imposed. For an R of anything above 1, an epidemic will grow exponentially.
    • Now kids... fight nice. This is the Flamefest section, so there's a bit more latitude here than in other areas. I think Glen is deliberately pushing your buttons, i.e., trolling you... especially since he "couldn't care less about U.S. politics"... *ahem*. He know he can push you into a rant. Don't fall for it. Ignore him like most of the rest of the people here do.
    • While I'm in the atheist camp I do not have a problem with most of the people who have faith in God....to each their own...as for Xmas , it is a holiday and should be about family and if religion is a necessary part of it for you, then so be it.....
