KISSIN' DYNAMITE - 'Steel of Swabia'

To be honest, after the first two songs of 'Steel of Swabia' I thought I was going to come to the boards preaching album of the year... but sadly the next few tracks dropped off a bit.

 

I still think this band is going to appeal to a lot of hard rock fans here, so check 'em out:

The first two songs are monsters... the opener containing one of the riffs of the year.

Not bad at all. Was just getting into the 2nd track then it finished. Will check out some more.

Yeah, there's some good stuff on this one, no doubt. Only downside is they suffer from what every other hard rock band suffers from these days... they can't keep it up for a full disc. That said, this is a good listen.

This is the description off NEHrecords:

 

"KISSIN’ DYNAMITE is a German five piece taht plays catchy melodic metal with ACCEPT-like guitar riffs and massive hooklines straight out of the EDGUY-, BLOODBOUND-, STURM & DRANG- and HAMMERFALL – songbook. With no filler in sight and a great production on top, KISSIN’ DYNAMITE is playing great Heavy Rock on an international level. Initial pressing comes in a digipack. "

Yeah, I saw them compared to stuff like Shakra and stuff. Personally, I hear the dude trying his best to sound like Axl Rose, and there is a 'Pigs' vibe from Asphalt Ballet... imo.

From the songs on myspace I don't hear much GNR but I do hear a Melodic Euro Metal such as Edguy on the song 'Steel of Swabia'. Either way they sound pretty good to me.

It is a ballsier sound like something like Edguy (though not quite there) but wait till you hear the dude's vocals across the disc.

I was just mostly going on that one song and the others on the myspace since I haven't heard the disc.

the first half is plain awesome... the 2nd half drops off alot to very simple rock songs...

Yeah, that awesome Geoff guy above agreed with that.

Oh no, I think it's going to happen with this CD. The first two songs are great and the 4th song is solid too, but I actually ended up skipped the rest of them after the first or 2nd chorus already. It's not bad, but this should have been so much more based on some of those early tracks... :(

Just got this one yesterday. I don't hear GNR. I do hear Edguy blended with a bit of Crashdiet. Formulaic but fairly well executed, especially considering that all the members are younger than 20 (I believe).

 

The anthem "My Religion" is solid, and for some reason I like "Zombie".

 

I added the above 2 tracks to the HH radio feed.

 

Of course the track "I Hate Hip Hop" is just plain trvth.

    • Defunding the cops was never the answer....there are a few cities where they are trying to make changes, such as adding an option to the 911 emergency number where you can choose 'a mental health issue' option which sends people (not cops) who are trained to deal with the situation....which frees cops up to do the work that they are trained for....
    • Yeah, that's why the entire BLM "Defund the police" movement was (and is) so fucking idiotic. The police need more assistance, resources, and training, not less.
    • The media and politicians are pro-police because the vast majority of the people they serve are pro-police and until that changes you will not see either group turn against the police....which is how it should be, the more difficult we make the job of policing, the harder it will be to get people to do the job so even if you are upset with how things are being done during the pandemic, maybe you should give the cops a little bit of understanding...
    • Pretty unlikely to get many fires this year with La Nina
    • I don't know how "firefighters" are defined or utilized in Australia vs. here in the USA, but presumably they are included because as first responders they may be called upon to rescue or render medical attention to people, and you wouldn't want the first responders to be giving Covid to them, or worse having a situation where either the recipient is forced into a position of declining medical assistance or the firefighters reluctant to render it. I actually agree with the mandatory vaccination policy in this case. 
    • In case anyone might have forgotten what a fucken dump Australia is right now, in a country that was ravaged by bushfires two years ago, volunteer firefighters are now required to be vaccinated to be able to provide their service. Many will not, so in an occupation where we were flying in firefighters from the US and Canada etc. at the peak of our issues to help out, we are standing volunteers down because they won't get vaccinated. Because christ almighty knows, that the last thing we want is for firefighters to be giving the fires they fight covid-19.  https://thewest.com.au/news/coronavirus/volunteer-fire-and-rescue-service-members-included-in-mandatory-vaccination-mandate-c-4564212 That story only covers WA, but I saw an interview today with a guy from NSW and as far as I understand it's a country-wide requirement?  I honestly just don't have the words to describe my thoughts on matters like this. Are we actually the dumbest fucking country on planet earth, or is shit like this happening in other countries?  Imagine honestly trying to excuse actions like this if we had fires like we did a couple of years ago and able-bodied, willing and experienced firefighters were sitting at home watching houses burn on TV because their stupid fucking cunt government thought that forcing a pointless needle into their arm was more important than the work these people do. Unbe-fucking-lievable.  
    • Here's my ability to read and interpret information. You say that you no longer teach your kids to respect police. You seem open in your statement "Fuck the pigs" You may say that in front of them. If you don't I'm sure they will pick up on it. Kids learn from their parents. I'm happy with my interpretation. It's sad that people can generalise so vigorously. I would put forward that a MASSIVE percentage of cops are good, if not great cops. we're looking at only a very few cops here who overstep and gain a lot of press. I know 3 people who have applied for the force. One got in, one didn't, one is in the process now. Their requirements are extremely high, and not adhering to just one part of the process 100% equals a fail. In the case of the person who didn't get in, she got through all the psych, fitness, etc, but didn't come across as confident enough in a phone interview, so that was it. Cops are legends.
