I would listen to any Bulletboys cd and Unmasked before I'd ever listen to a JP cd. That's a fact...

 

 

I bet you would rather drink Coors Light than a good black & tan or a IPA too wouldn't you? :nyanya:

 

 

Hey.. Nothing wrong with the Silver Bullet Bro..... :whistle:

 

Oh and I like Unmasked too....

 

 

And Nickelback ROCKS!!! :headbanger:

Since 1999 when the Marvies released the Hey! album.

 

See I wouldn't consider them Modern Rock but that might just be me.

And to be honest I didn't know you didn't like Priest.

I know how much you like Bach's Angel Down so I'd be suprised to see you not like Halford's solo stuff since it has the same producer and two of the same band members and a very similar sound IMO. :tumbsup:

One major difference...it's Bach singing.

I would most certainly drink Coors over that...and all of the BHC movies kick ass including 3.

Are you saying he's not one of the greatest singers around?

If he doesn't, I will. ;) And no, it's not 'cause he's gay. I just agree with the other dudes that he's no good overall. :)

 

And when did you get into all of this modern rock anyway?

AAAAAARGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!! You know we're cousins and family to the end, but I HATE comments like that so much. He got into "modern rock" the same time we all did when we heard the first melodic/"commercial" hard rock album and liked it. In 1989 Bon Jovi, Treat, Skid Row and Warrant were "modern" melodic hard rock and in 2008 Nickelback, Rockarma, Hinder, Marcello/Vestry, Story of the Year, Disciple and H.E.A.T are "modern" melodic hard rock. My good man Jarred is just good enough (in a few places ;) ) to realise this and not hold onto the unrealistic and completely false notion that melodic hard rock died in 1992. It's still more than alive and well, and you can deny it all you want but the fact is that Nickelback are one of the bands that are a part of this scene. GRRRR!

Sorry cousin I'm not denying anything and there is no reason that Rockarma and Nickelback should be mentioned in the same sentence because Rockarma are a great band and Nickelback is just an okay band IMO. Honestly I don't hear any resemblence between Story of the Yar and H.E.A.T.

Because there is only as much resemblance between HEAT and Story of the Year as there is between Treat and Sven Gali. They're different types of rock / hard rock bands, but it's all melodic, all with big juicy choruses, killer riffs and big hooks.

 

I also prefer Rockarma to Nickelback... by a long way, but they're both commercial sounding melodic hard rock bands. I don't hear the reason why one is not allowed to be mentioned in the presence of the other?

Well as long as you don't start saying that the lead singer from The Darkness (or any f*cking thing about that f*cking joke of a f*cked up band) is better than Talon I'll let it slide this time.

I love the new Talon(I think I've made that very very clear) but the singer of the Darkness is a fucking wanker IMO.

I'm guessing Matt is somehow linked to that project.

 

I really hope it is never unleashed. Supporting a motherf*cker like that is just not cool.

While it hasn't been confirmed I did read that Matt is Justin Hawkins. You didn't hear that from me. :whistle:

Maybe I should give it another spin.

You're only jealous 'cause you wish you looked like a pug and got the love from me that they do.

 

By the way, both my pugs have better voices than Justin Hawkins. And that is in no way a joke.

I'll post my thoughts here even though this thread is no longer seems to be about Nickelback. :unsure: I picked up the new album today, and damn, what a monster slab of commercial hard rock! The production, hooks, catchiness, and singability (is that a word) were just top notch. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that this new release is even better than "All The Right Reasons". Highly highly recommended.

Picked up this CD (Nickelback, not Justin Hawkins or Geoff's pugs) yesterday and have spun it a few times... and I've gotta say that despite their previous efforts leaving me with a resounding "meh" this one actually has quite a few hooks and melodies that have me enjoying it. I think the Mutt Lange "treatment" also helps as far as listenability.

 

"Next Go Round" feels out of place and is as useless as tits on a bull, but outside of that one clunker, all the songs rate.

 

 

This year has turned out exceptionally with respect to music releases. Making my Top 5 list is going to be excruciating. CDs that I thought for sure would be in contention back in June now won't make the list.

 

And it's not just traditional hard rock/AOR (Journey, Jimi Jamison, Rockarma, Marcello-Vestry, AC/DC) that have had stellar releases, but so-called "modern" hard rock has some REAL gems (Shinedown, Hinder, Nickelback). The only modern hard rock release that people have been talking about that I consider to have been a waste of money is Disciple - Southern Hospitality. Does absolutely NOTHING for me. Unlistenable to my ears.

    • QUEENSRŸCHE Announces New Album 'Digital Noise Alliance' - BLABBERMOUTH.NET QUEENSRŸCHE has set "Digital Noise Alliance" as the title of its new studio album, due on October 7 via Century Media Records.   "Digital Noise Alliance" was once again helmed by Chris "Zeuss" Harris, who previously worked with QUEENSRŸCHE on 2015's "Condition Hüman" and "The Verdict" LPs. This past March, QUEENSRŸCHE singer Todd La Torre told FOX17 Rock & Review about the band's upcoming LP: "Each song might have a little different attitude and we wanted to just use real amps and all the vintage, real stuff that was used throughout the history of QUEENSRŸCHE. "We did all the drums at a place in Clearwater [Florida] — a huge home with the most amazing ceiling for a drum room," La Torre continued. "So we did all the drums there. And then, really, at my place [in St. Petersburg, Florida], we're able to track all the guitars, bass and vocals. "Those days of renting thousand-dollar-a-day studios, we don't really need that anymore. And our producer Zeuss, who did the last two QUEENSRŸCHE albums — he does all Rob Zombie's stuff; he's a very seasoned producer, [and] he does mixing and mastering, so he's a one-stop shop — he's down here from Massachusetts. So he's handling all those duties. And things are going really well. We're having a great time." Last November, La Torre told Canada's The Metal Voice about the musical direction of the new QUEENSRŸCHE material: "It doesn't sound like 'The Verdict'. It's its own new kind of thing. We really kind of just focused more on melodic hooks. I don't think we went in thinking, like, 'Oh, we need to sound old school or new or this.'" He continued: "You know what we did on this record… Every other time, each guy would kind of submit their own song ideas and then we would kind of work on that. But what we did on this record was, other than Eddie [Jackson, bass] — Eddie has a couple of songs that are really cool that he wrote and then showed us kind of when they were pretty much done. And then Michael kind of wrote some interesting chords — still staying within the keys and everything. But we all got in a room with our here [in Florida], and we literally started from scratch. Like, 'Michael, what do you got?' [And he would] come up with a riff. And Casey [Grillo] would sit on the drums, or I would sit on the drums. We were all actually in a room and just tried it like the good old days. So this record was totally like that — the whole thing pretty much, minus one or two songs. And even that changed a little bit." In early 2021, Wilton told The Metal Voice about the sound of the new QUEENSRŸCHE music: "Our producer, Zeuss, if this is any indication, he says it sounds like QUEENSRŸCHE … I think we're just going with our gut right now. You don't wanna take too many drastic chances in this day and age. So I think it's more of a continuation of 'The Verdict', maybe, in some sense. We're riding that wave. It's been good to us. [Laughs]" In October, Wilton confirmed that returning guitarist Mike Stone would contribute guitar solos to the band's next studio album. Since late May 2021, Stone has been handling second-guitar duties in QUEENSRŸCHE, which announced in July that longtime guitarist Parker Lundgren was exiting the group to focus on "other business ventures." Stone originally joined QUEENSRŸCHE for the 2003 album "Tribe" and stayed with the band for six years before leaving the group. For the past five years, Grillo has been filling in for QUEENSRŸCHE's original drummer Scott Rockenfield, who stepped away from the band's touring activities in early 2017 to spend time with his young son. In early October, Rockenfield filed a lawsuit against the band's fellow original members Wilton and Jackson, alleging, among other things, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty and wrongful discharge. Earlier this year, QUEENSRŸCHE pulled out of SCORPIONS' rescheduled "Sin City Nights" Las Vegas residency in order to support JUDAS PRIEST on the "50 Heavy Metal Years" North American tour dates. The trek kicked off on March 4 in Peoria, Illinois and concluded on April 13 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------     From Queensryche's Facebook page:   QUEENSRŸCHE – Release “In Extremis”, 1st Song And Video Taken From “Digital Noise Alliance”, Announce Tour With Judas Priest! With a career that not only spans, but has charted the course of multiple genres, QUEENSRŸCHE remains a force in their own right. “Digital Noise Alliance”, QUEENSRŸCHE’s 16th studio album, which will be out October 7th, continues the ever-evolving legacy the Bellevue Washington born band that began in 1982 when they first took hold of the flame with their hugely received self-titled 4-song EP. Their recent U.S. tour with Judas Priest proved that the band’s time off the road and in the studio only stoked their ambition and fire. Once again teaming up with producer Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Hatebreed), “Digital Noise Alliance” not only refracts QUEENSRŸCHE’s past accomplishments but also pushes into the band’s future. It is the band effortlessly moving from strength to strength: immediate and thought-provoking. Quintessentially QUEENSRŸCHE. Get a first taste of “Digital Noise Alliance” with “In Extremis” that is out on all digital platforms, as well as by watching the video: https://youtu.be/W6btF3AotH0 The band comments, “This song is about being on your deathbed surrounded by your loved ones. Clinging to the last sense available, letting them know you will still be hearing them after correspondence or perceived consciousness is visible. Other conceptual metaphors flash in and out, taking note of a world that will not bend to accommodate such suffering, a universe of mockery and a universe void of such abilities.” Right after the release of “Digital Noise Alliance” the band will embark on another tour opening for the mighty Judas Priest on their “50 Heavy Metal Years” tour.   QUEENSRYCHE opening for Judas Priest dates: Oct. 13 Wallingford, CT - Toyota Oakdale Oct. 15 Albany, NY - MVP Arena Oct. 16 Boston, MA - MGM Music Hall Fenway Oct. 18 Uniondale, NY - Nassau Veterans Oct. 19 Wilkes-Barre, PA - Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza Oct. 21 Kalamazoo, MI - Wings Event Center Oct. 22 Detroit, MI - Masonic Temple Theatre Oct. 24 Cincinnati, OH - The Andrew J Brady Music Center Oct. 25 Waukegan, IL - Genesee Theatre Oct. 27 Green Bay, WI - Resch Center Theater Oct. 29 Moline, IL - TaxSlayer Center Moline Oct. 30 Mankato, MN - Mayo Clinic Event Center Nov. 01 Sioux City, IA - Tyson Events Center Nov. 02 Rapid City, SD - The Monument Nov. 07 Ontario, CA - Toyota Center Nov. 08 Tucson, AZ - TCC Arena Nov. 10 Loveland, CO - Budweiser Events Center Nov. 12 Park City (Wichita),KS - Hartman Arena Nov. 13 St. Charles, MO - The Family Arena Nov. 15 Corbin, KY - The Corbin Arena Nov. 17 Southaven, MS - Landers Center Nov. 18 Baton Rouge, LA - Raising Canes River Center Nov. 20 Oklahoma City, OK - Paycom Center Nov. 22 San Antonio, TX - Tech Port Center & Arena Nov. 23 San Antonio, TX - Tech Port Center & Arena Nov. 25 Dallas, TX - The Factory - Deep Ellum Nov. 26 Corpus Christi, TX - Concrete Street Nov. 28 Edinburg, TX - Burt Ogden Arena Nov. 29 Houston, TX - 713 Music Hall Stay tuned for more news, music and pre-order options soon!   QUEENSRŸCHE line-up: Eddie Jackson - bass Michael Wilton - guitar Todd La Torre - vocals Casey Grillo - drums Mike Stone - guitar

    • I wouldn’t be opposed to Soundgarden being included on HH at all 👍 AIC are over on BrutalMetal.com for your commenting pleasure 😎
    • Personally I'd like to see Soundgarden in HH cause they are just another Zeppelin/Sabbath inspired hard rock band. Only thing they had in common with "grunge" is they were from Seattle. Well, so was Queensryche! Soundgarden have nothing in common with the punk of Nirvana, the garage rock of Mudhoney or alternative rock of Pearl Jam. Soundgarden are a classic rock band, like how Alice In Chains are a metal band. A case could also be made to include AIC, but I'd be happy to win on Soundgarden.
