Hello guys, I just wanted to recommend this cool band from Alabama--"Lynam" They have the following albums available:

 

Lynam--Slave to the Machine (available from CD Baby)

 

Lynam--Tragic City Symphony--(right now its only available on their website--single "save my soul" can be heard on Sirius Octane)

 

Lynam--Bling Bling--This release is currently out of print. I just bought a copy for $80 on musicstack. The album is displayed at CDBaby, but they no longer carry it. You can still sample tracks from the album.

 

So if you guys get a chance, check these guys out....if you like artists like Hinder you should like these guys.

I prefer Hinder by far, but Lynam are definitely a good band. 'Slave to the machine' is a cool hard rock disc and the new one ain't bad either. A few gems on it. A few fillers, yes, but not bad. Just for your info, Jason, you know these guys (well at least the lead singer) used to be in a bad called Mars Electric, who released two albums: 'Beautiful Something' (2000) and 'Fame Among the Vulgar' (2003)?

 

'Fame Among the Vulgar' is probably still the best album of the lot... even though I like the harder rocking sound of Lynam a lot better.

Wow I didn't know that...That Mars Electric sucked IMO...In fact I still have that CD I think..

Why..I have no idea...They certainly "jumped up in the game"

Which Mars Electric do you have? The debut it pretty crap but I love the 2nd one. The only problem across the board on ALL these releases is that the dude has a really, really weak voice.

No worries mate. Also, to add to your first post, Lynam actually released their first album ('White Trash Superstar) in 2002:

White Trash Superstar... nice cover

 

And then of course there is this one, which I still haven't heard:

Life In Reverse... their 3rd album

 

I can't believe that was sitting at CD Baby the whole time and I never knew. If the US exchange rate was still decent I'd buy it in a heartbeat! SHIT!

Yes, I like and recommend all their releases. Lots of energy! Just the right balance between 80's style hard rock and modernism! LYNAM ROCKS!

I'm way behind on this one I know, but I just scored a copy of Lynam "Tragic City Symphony". Count me impressed. I had no idea this very cool slab of hard rock has been waving under my nose for the past six months. This was a nice blend of straight ahead rockers and power ballads. They even had Hinder doing gang vocals on one of the tracks, so you know the type of sound they were going for. And to top it off, I see that Beau Hill even mixed one of the tracks (I love seeing Beau Hill's name on anything). Out of twelve tracks there were only a couple of fillers. The first track "Is this a heartbreak or a loaded gun" is worth its weight in gold. Highly recommended.

Yes indeed! Love that song.

Just checked this out, and indeed, "Is This Heartbreak or a Loaded Gun" is fan-fucking-awesome-tastic. That sucker just might go down as the best chorus I've heard all year...

 

The other tracks I sampled were good too, and this CD just went on my to-buy list.

    • I know I've posted about this hombre several times before, but apparently not in his own thread. This must change as I find him to be so awesome but no one seems to acknowledge his existence. Not just here, but his youtube channel and reach seems to be so small. Crazy for someone who produces bone crunching quality on a madly consistent basis.  Eric Dalton     -    Playing Favorites (2022) 1    .    Calling Card 2    .    Oblivion 3    .    Head in the Clouds 4    .    X My Heart 5    .    Infection 6    .    My Demons 7    .    Solace 8    .    A Part of Me 9    .    Without You 10    .    Deception     Sorry, I know I've posted this before, but his youtube channel features all three of his (excellent) albums in full if interest permits. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb2I3-4_UvFnWWTcXBBLPYA  
    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive      
    • Welcome, album of the year? Love this project with vigour. I snuck 'Saturday' on the playlist I put on with the kids in the car, lol. Can't wait to hear any of the songs I haven't already heard and showered in love from this. 
    • Did anyone notice these guys released another new album?  As expected, it's pretty weak and more proof of their solid decline.  HOWEVER!  There is actually a good song on it. It's only one, but I kind of clapped and cheered when I heard this. I used to love these guys so much, and still love the albums I always loved from these guys but it's been some barren years. It was good to hear them do what they used to do with great ease.      
    • Couple of okay songs, but otherwise as expected above. No surprises, exactly what you'd expect from these guys in 2022.     
    • Not every song is a hit, but another pretty decent one mini-album. I like some of the gear on this one.  Villain of the Story     -    Divided 1    .    Never Again 2    .    Jester 3    .    Karma 4    .    Under My Skin 5    .    Losing Control 6    .    Wrong 7    .    Don't Go 8    .    Divided    
    • Not sure if folk know, but they got back together and released an EP this year. Anberlin     -    Silverline 1    .    Two Graves 2    .    Nothing Lost 3    .    Body Language 4    .    Asking 5    .    Circles It's not amazing, but I do really like this song from it-  
    • Not an amazing album, but pretty solid with a couple of very nice tunes-     They have a very comprehensive youtube channel for anyone unsure and wanting to give everything a listen- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYECJVZLOQebjAuj_HMKLjg
