I just learnt about this yesterday. Apparently its a new singer right? hows it compare to the first album? I didnt actually pick the first one up... just didnt think it was overly brilliant, but solid. Cdbaby doesnt have the new one in stock yet..

While the first disc, "Salt of the Earth" was more on the melodic metal side, the new one is mostly straight hard rock, and I think this style suits them a little better. There is definitely some Dokken influence evident, especially in the guitar, and as kethdredd has stated, the production is better this time around as well. :)

Evidently they're just sold out for the moment, as that's where I purchased my copy. ;)

Hmm, I wasn't blown away by this, but I definitely hear the Dokken influence in there as well. Come to think of it, I'm actually hearing Dokken mixed with Rage Of Angels.

Great guitars, and a fairly decent Dokken vibe, but the choruses need to be better to make this a keeper, at least for me. Big improvement over their first CD though, particularly in the production department. There was a time when I would have happily picked this up, but nowadays there's so much good stuff out there, even in the Christian rock/metal realm, that only the strongest make the cut, and this just isn't quite strong enough. Good effort though, and I'll gladly check out what the band does in the future.

I thought it was ok. I got through it and wasnt really left with that wow factor. I still think the best Christian power/hard rock album this year is Seventh Avenue's Terium...

Not bad at all. The poor vocals and lyrics really give it a bit of that standard cheesy 80's christian hard rock band vibe, but they go okay. 'Nail in the cross' is a killer hard rocker and 'Lifeline' is a pretty damn fine balladic number too. A few fillers, a few average songs... but pretty cool hard rock disc.

 

Wow, the guitar on 'Prayer warriors' is so f*cking awesome you almost don't notice how horrible the lyrics are. Killer guitar track. And what do we have here... the last track, 'Love covers it all' is a bit of a melodic hard rock treat. Talk about saving the best for last - I love it!

    • How did I not think of this one?! Brilliant album and the project just tanked afterwards...
    • I don't. Hate it with a passion. Even that is so 1986. Retire Tesla please. You are an embarrassment now.

Rattle The Cage  4:42 Band members: David Shaw - lead vocals, bass George Giannoulis - lead guitar, vocals Alex Rude - guitar, vocals Erik Fehrenbach - drums, vocals Produced by Streetlight Circus Recorded at Snake Mountain Studios - Monroe, New York Mixed and Mastered by Bob St. John for PDQ Productions Bio: Born in New York City, raised on rock ‘n’ roll, Streetlight Circus has become a fist-raising juggernaut.  With two independently-released full-length albums and one EP, consistent touring in the United States and overseas, invites to major American rock festivals, and bills shared with countless venerated artists, Streetlight Circus has become a name synonymous with the new wave of hard rock. The band's new album, Super Fine Sugar, represents a huge leap forward for the hard-hitting quartet. Streetlight Circus showcases the urgent songwriting and soaring vocals of David Shaw, the fiery and passionate guitar work of George Giannoulis, the thunderous drumming of Erik Fehrenbach, and the smooth rhythm guitar work of Alex Rude. What’s more, Streetlight Circus has captured the attention of industry stalwarts who have eagerly participated in the creation of the new album. The songs were mixed and mastered by Grammy-winning producer and engineer Bob St. John. Guest appearances are made by Berton Averre (The Knack), Tony Harnell (TNT), Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies), Brian Forsythe (Kix), and Jesper and Jacob Binzer (D-A-D). Streetlight Circus has been invited to rock thousands at festivals such as Rock Fest (Wisconsin), Rocklahoma (Oklahoma), Rock N’ Derby (New York), Wolf Fest (Colorado), and the M3 Rock Festival (Maryland) among many others. The band has managed to comfortably fit on bills featuring bands as heavy as Avatar, Anthrax, and Megadeth and as accessible as The Doobie Brothers, Buckcherry, and Night Ranger. In 2018, Streetlight Circus embarked on a successful headlining tour of the United Kingdom taking them from Wales to Scotland and many British points in between. Supercharged and ready to roll with Super Fine Sugar, Streetlight Circus is prepared to rock stages around the globe. Don’t miss your chance to rock under the band’s big top. It’s a show you won’t want to miss. Watch the video for "Dirty Earth" featuring Tony Harnell at the link below  https://youtu.be/08_IuFTqwTM  
    • warrant?? CP and DED destroy the debut imo. 🤷
    • Eric Clapton-Chronicles Best Of John Fogerty-Centerfield Genesis-...And Then There Were Three... Jimi Hendrix-Electric Ladyland Billy Joel-The Stranger L.A.

    • Such was commonplace around here years ago. 
    • That's an oxymoron-even KarpetRyd knows that !  
    • Checked this out....not too bad but not sure how memorable it'll be. There's a few tunes I thought sounded pretty good after my first listen and do think Ronnie sounds excellent on the album  Songs like Scream and Shot in the Dark both stood out to me a bit.  I thought Last Man Alive sounded decent too. Much of the rest kind of feels like it falls in line with the first 2 singles that were released.  It's kind of heavy which is cool but just not coming off as being that catchy or memorable initially which was sort of my same problem with the last album.   We'll see what happens with more listens.  Here's a link to the whole album:
