They've really toned down the Metalcore on this new disc, & cranked up the technicality (love the scorching solos). Cool stuff... :banger:

Didn't care for the band's last album, but this sounds pretty good. I'll add this to my ever-expanding list of CDs to buy.

I also haven't cared for their past work, but after a few comments from Sir Tim my interest in this is there. I'll have to check it out. How much screaming are we talking on this one?

Hardly any. In fact they've gone too far with this one IMO. The production is sensational, & I love the guitar work, but songs like "Two Weeks" and "Chiron" are just like pop/metal. The singer is awesome, one of the best vocalists in the genre, but it's a pretty dramatic shift....

Excellent! I'll be checking it out asap!! :)

Wow, listen to that chorus in 'Chiron'!!! I'm up to track 6 and I like this. Again, I feel it's going to be one of those screamo albums (there's still quite a lot of screaming here) that I enjoy - seriously, this is really cool - but when it comes down to the crunch in the future I am not sure this'll be the kind of album I reach for in my car stereo. That said, it's entertaining me delightfully at the moment. Nice guitar work too.

Finally picked this one up and am really liking it. This is the sort of modern heavy/thrash metal I like: some screams here and there, but with commercial, cleanly-sung choruses. Thanks to Tim(2) for the recommendation on this one; hell, 98% of my modern heavy/thrash metal collection was purchased based on his suggestions! (But I'm still too wussy to listen to Job for a Cowboy.)

Their second album "The fall of ideal" is sensational IMO. One of the best modern metal albums ever made. It is very agressive but with melodic choruses that you can die for. Just listen to "This calling". It's also good to here a modern rock band that gives away some great guitar solos.

 

Sorry lads but I don't think Overcome is near as good as Fall of ideals. But I will most likely go and watch them play here in Sweden.

Glad you like it! I actually agree with Ali Rock in that it's not as good (though much more commercial & better produced) than "The Fall of Ideals" which is a stunning Metalcore disc, one of the best ever IMHO. Another disc I reckon you'd like, if you haven't already heard it, is SONIC SYNDICATE'S "Love & Other Disasters". Ignore the disappointing first single "Jack of Diamonds" & pick up the album, some of the years best chorus-lines on this one....

I have actually had it in the player the last couple of time I have excercised. Some of the songs are good. I think Powershift is great. It is better than the last album IMO. They have taken a leap from the last album. If they are out playing as much as they are doing at the moment they will be great in the future.

 

The have recieved so much bad gossip here in Sweden. Many people say they are a copy of In Flames. This is propably because they are very young and we have a large jealousy in Sweden.

 

I also think the production by Jonas Kjellgren is better on this album. Have you heard of his band "Scar Symmetry". A great band in my opinion. The last album is softer than the previous but I think both are great. They are such great musicians in that band, especially the guitarists.

IMO, this blows away "The Fall of Ideals," which I spun only once and immediately jettisoned like a pair of shoes that just don't fit; something about it failed to click with me. Not really surprising though, because as you know by now, I like the more commercial side of the heavy/thrash/core metal genre.

 

Will check out Sonic Syndicate ASAP.

Fuelhead is another unknown Swedish band which is worth checking out if you like more melodic modern metal. :guitbannana:

Checked out Sonic Syndicate and liked everything except the vocalist; something about the way he screams just grated on me. You were spot-on about those stellar choruses though...

 

Will try to listen to Fuelhead tonight. Thanks for the recommendations, guys!

Yeah there's definitely an element of In Flames there, but lets face it... even In Flames are rehashing their own formula these days. And, like Soilwork, just making it more & more melodic each time. I do like Scar Symmetry (though Kjellgren just left to focus on producing albums, I believe), but their latest album is a little too melodic IMO. "Pitch Black Progress" was better. But Sonic Syndicate's "Love..." is a killer disc IMO, such amazing tunes & choruses... :banger:

Kjellgren is still working alot with Scar Symmetry. Actually the singer has left and and one has become two singers. One growling and one singing the clean stuff. I also think Pitch black progress is their best effort.

 

Try Fuelhead the are also quite good not that much growl and maybe a little bit melodic for my taste.

You say that as if it's a bad thing. :P

Yeah yeah! I can see why people love the more commercial sound of their last 2 albums, but it needs to be heavier for me. Plus I always thought CHILDREN OF BODOM were a better band anyway....

    • 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.
    • New song 'Power Of Will'.    
    • Ok Cody, It was 41 vs 330. It's now 63 vs 335, so we're making ground, but you need to fire up and make some contributions. It's your thread and that's what you're hanging by at the moment with the big guy.
    • George W Bush's Grandfather (Aleister) got it. Charlie didn't get it, but his heart was in the right place.       
    • A little sumthin sumthin from the coolest band east of the Rockies.    Show them some well deserved lovin' fellas!   FuZZrd thanks readers w/an advance download of “Pins & Needles” from their debut LP Near Life Experience being released globally December 10, 2021. From Steve Karas (w/slight edits): FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 3, 2021 FuZZrd's debut studio album: Near Life Experience available December 10, 2021 Download “PINS & NEEDLES” Here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/ Album teaser video: https://bit.ly/FuZZrdAlbumTeaser Pre-order: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com/ Upcoming live show at Minneapolis’ The Southern Theatre December 11, 2021 –  https://southerntheater.org/ Minneapolis, MN – FuZZrd would like to share their gratitude to the sites readers and presents a free download of the song “Pins & Needles” in advance of the band’s debut studio album Near Life Experience which is being released on December 10, 2021. To access the free download or preview the song, click here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/.   FuZZrd guitarist and vocalist Brett Petrusek shares, “Pins and Needles is a personal favorite. It's a song about loss and the overwhelming feeling of anxiety that can often ensue. If you've ever felt so wound up that your skin is crawling you may relate. For me, it's sonically intriguing, it's mysterious and the chorus hits just right. It's wickedly fun to play on guitar, too!" The debut album can be pre-ordered at a discounted price here: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com. The band will perform the day following release day alongside Johnny O' Neil (of Dare Force fame) and up and comers, The Issue at The Southern Theatre in Minneapolis, MN. Tickets for the appearance can be purchased by visiting https://southerntheater.org/. Petrusek reflects, “I'm so very proud of what we have accomplished this past year. It's gratifying to see and hear Near Life Experience in its completed form. It's a powerhouse and definitely fits in the category of ‘album I've always wanted to make’. The chemistry with our producer Jeremy Tappero continued to flourish and we all grew as musicians. I love the songs and sound we've created. It's fresh, and new, and noticeably doesn't chase trends. It stays true to its heavy rock roots. It's so awesome to be a part of FuZZrd coming to life, playing live shows, and sharing our music. The whole of what we have created is truly rewarding. I'm totally grateful to have this group." Bassist and background vocalist Robert Berg states, “Substance of structure. A collection of songs that in my view captures what's truly important for fans of multigenerational hard rock. I love the upfront guitars and inspired solos. There's a maturity in the vocal melodies that catapults the meaningful lyrical content. It was inspiring to witness. Every member brought what was necessary; when necessary. I believe we just barely dipped our toes into what's possible with our current guitar duo's musical chemistry. Special, special, special thanks to Producer Jeremy Tappero. I tell him all the time that my favorite moments in life are sitting in the chair next to him and laying it down. He's a true mentor who seemingly always knows what's right for the band. Brett is quite forward thinking and never short of ideas. FuZZrd will build on the experience and continue to make the rock pound." Guitarist and background vocalist Eric Fairchild offers, “Discovering the chemistry and camaraderie of FuZZrd has been the highlight of a truly chaotic year and a half. Being able to connect and collaborate on new music has been so fulfilling. I’m really proud of the work we’ve put in, and the album that has emerged as a result. The songs on Near Life Experience have been able to capture so many feelings that have been otherwise difficult to express. Plus, it’s always fun to tear it up on the guitar! I’m thrilled to get these songs in front of audiences, and continue to build on what we’ve started." Drummer Scott Savage adds, "I could not be happier with the new record; and it could not have happened without everyone’s dedication and hard work. It’s so gratifying to have this finished product and be able to share with everyone! I’m so proud of my band mates and what we have accomplished. We are definitely fired up about what the future holds for us!" For more information contact: Steve Karas SKH Music -  skaras@skhmusic.com
    • I'm digging this song.  Good stuff.  Background vocals don't bother me at all here.
