'Brand new breed' and especially 'Turn it up' sound wonderful. I'd like to hear a few more like this. Would love to hear a full disc.

Listening to 'Out for blood' now. Surprisingly good CD. I really dig it. Good, ballsy sleaze / glam hard rock.

Not a band sounding and looking band! Thanks for the link.

 

Here is Seattle's version: Peepshow Seattle

 

Definately a good band who's style is a bit more polished than the Euro version. Check 'em out!

 

These USA guys sound ok. Sound abit at times like Matchbox Twenty/The Calling/Injected to me. Abit too modern for my taste as I am still trapped in the 80s. :devilgrin:

Will stay with Scottish version.

Me too, but at least someone finally listened to them! :)

This is too modern-sounding for my usual tastes, but I seem to really like 'Let Go'. Strange. :unsure:

Really like the new one, Brand new breed. I would say CrashDiet with some small modern touches and a great production. A real highlight of the year so far...

 

Have a listen at the teaser below and judge for yourself.

I agree with you friend. This is a solidly-played album, and I like the singer's style too!

But i'm not so sure whether it's easy to buy, do you have any idea where's the cheapest one on the net ?

Bought it from their web site for £7.99 including shipping to Sweden which I think is bloody cheap. :party421:

Thanks a billion, mate. Just picked both CDs up for about au$22!!! Brilliant value. For those unaware, the last CD - 'Out for blood' was pretty awesome too. Stoked to pick them both up at once for so cheap. :)

Yeah, got both of these on my 'to buy' list when I sell my next lot of CDs on eBay. Bit of a modern edge to their sound, but unusually doesn't put me off. The songs seem to stand up.

You´re welcome Geoff. I promise you will not regret it. The album is just great with a production that kills,,,,, :banger:

Been listening to this pretty solidly, and for me it is one of the highlights of 2012 so far. Obviously massive Crashdiet comparisons and they probably havent quite got the hooks that Crashdiet produce, but there's no mistaking that this is a damned good album -

 

In summary -

 

Intro

1. Let Go - Decent opener, hook could be better, but is saved by an excellent solo (8.0)

2. Live Free Or Die - would have been my choice as opener - much more hooky chorus - great uptempo rocker (9.0)

3. Trouble - Massive riff based rocker with a cool solo - huge energy throughout, and big Crashdiet influence (9.0)

4. Only A Dream - Atmospheric with echoey vocals & haunting piano..very nice solo but doesnt really 'happen' songwise (7.0)

5. All Or Nothing - solid rocker with interesting keys in the chorus,,again massive CD comparison...great ending to the song (8.5)

6. Feed On Me - my favourite chorus of the album - slight gothic influence ala HIM, but this rocks along nicely! Must admit that the closing solos/riffs are very cool indeedy (9.25)

7. Irreversible - can definitely hear a bit of enuff z nuff in those dreamy verses. like it when the tempo picks up and a simple but melodious musical section leads to a crescendo ending. very nice (8.75)

8. Suffer - Urgent riff/verse leading to another hooky CD style chorus with plenty of woahs. excellent solo (9.0)

9. Romance Is Dead - Great gang style chorus - yet another very cool song - got to say that all the rockers on this are as consistent as hell, if slightly samey (8.75)

10. Star Eyes - Love that intro with riff/electronica - reminds me of the Lost Boys soundtrack kind of crossed with Vain if that makes sense? also like the 2 tier chorus...really taken by this one, the epitome of cool, but maybe too many woahs? (9.0)

11. Brand New Breed - Bass/riff...means one thing, CD all over again. Solid rocker but not overly keen on the spoken part (8.5)

12. Waking The Dead - Huge verse. more fuckin woahs (do we really need them in every song?)..more HS in style this one but its another goodie to end the album (8.5)

outro - decent but missed a trick here not speeding this up and turning it into a huge SOTY styled rocker, hey ho.

 

OVERALL 86%

 

Fans of Crashdiet really cannot go wrong with this album....its so close in style to Generation Wild. A really mega consistent album, which is maybe just missing a 'Chemical' style bomb to clear the magic 90%, but still a great effort.

    • Good stuff....missed it first time around.....
    • The Jokers - Slapback from their upcoming release “Rock and Roll Bones” 
    • There are certainly some great songs on here. I've only done the first 2 discs so far though. 
    • Played as well today and it's ok and has a few good songs, but tbh, I'm starting to get a bit bored with them, as they don't offer up anything they haven't done before. Like the last album, everything on this album has been done to death previously and is as predictable as hell. Of all the new albums I have played recently (and there have been quite a few) this doesn't feature very highly unfortunately.
    • I think 'Smoking' is the weakest track by far on here and the only one I don't really rate that much. Of the others, 'Time to Let Go' is a cool rocker that hits the spot and the lead off single 'Why Are You Calling Me Now' is a great AOR track. Liking the rest is going to depend on whether you like the more New Country/Pop ballad style of song, as there are at least 4 or 5 like that,  with Jay DeMarcus's obvious influence on these ..'I Hope You Find It' 'Don't Go' 'Finally Got It Right' and 'Anything But Us' are spectacular ballads and amongst some of the best I have heard in recent times, whilst 'Angels' 'All Night To Get There', 'Lights Go Out In Paradise' and 'Waiting On Your Sunshine' are all top quality too. Definitely one of the best albums this year for me, but as I said, it won't all be for everyone's taste, especially the softer stuff on show.
    • At least they've reverted back to something similar to Tesla soundwise...its ok...not bad...but if I need Tesla I've always got Mechanical Resonance , TGRC or Psychotic Supper to get me through  
    • New single pretty blah to me.  It's ok I guess but no desire to add that to a playlist or re-listen. These guys feel like a band that's underachieved a bit to me with their new music in the past 20 years or so after starting off so well with their first 3-4 albums.  Yeah, there's been some good songs here and there but they just really haven't gotten near the quality of those early albums.
    • Lily Lowe - Scream      After listening to her debut album “Löwe“, it’s evident why LILY LOWE is being coined Norway’s new lady of rock. This young singer and songwriter – real name Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – has the voice, the looks and essentially, talent, to become a star. The mastermind behind “Löwe” is Norway’s rock institution Trond Holter (Wig Wam, Dream Police, Jorn Lande etc.) who not only co-wrote the songs, but also is the musical director & producer, and play all over the record. In fact, most of Wig Wam members play on the album, alongside other Scandinavian renowned musicians. But don’t lose the focus here: LILY LOWE is the star on the album: with her intense delivery of brazen vocals is sure to reign right alongside the most prominent rock artists to date. An she writes very good songs as well. LILY LOWE was a contestant for Norway’s Eurovision this year with the great glammy hard rock tune ‘Bad Baby’ (included into the album) but if you think her music is bland you better listen to “Löwe” carefully. Having a song titled ‘Handsome Whore’ in the track list give you an idea this album isn’t ‘Eurovision saccharine’ at all. This rocks, hard. Holter has provided a bright, crisp, rocking production for Lowe’s voice and he drops some killer riffs to boot, like on opener ‘Scream’ which while wrapped by a modern production it’s very classic rock. The kind of riff that worked in the Seventies, the Eighties, and today. ‘Bad Baby’ is the hit, catchy, infectious, with Lily showcasing why she grew up listening Guns N’ Roses and Motley crue. The glam metal ‘Daddy’s Type’ is probably the song that most reveals Holter’s involvement, because this could easily could be into any Wig Wam album. It’s almost like you get a little shocked when it’s not Åge Sten Nilsen who sings. On “Run” Lily & Holter try something different, more modern and adding some electronics to the mix, but don’t be fooled, this album rocks. “Löwe” is a catchy driving good debut album by this talented young woman, helped by a cast of top Scandinavian musicians. LILY LOWE is an artist we will certainly hear more about in years to come.   01 – Scream 02 – Crying Game 03 – Bad Baby 04 – 911 05 – Caught in a Dream 06 – Daddy’s Type 07 – Handsome Whore 08 – So Long 09 – Run Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – vocals, drums Trond Holter – guitars, keyboards, backing vocals Bernt Jansen – bass, backing vocals Magnus Galguften – drums Tom Jensen – keyboards
