Haha... I had an opportunity to hear this thing the other day and I passed because I figured I knew exactly what they'd sound like (average dime-a-dozen nu-metal). And guess what... they sound exactly like how I pictured they would! :lol:

 

Big pass for me.

Mate, Nickelback haven't made a nu-metal sounding album since that 'The state' atrocity. Since then there's been nothing slow-paced (except the ballads) and nu-metal about their albums at all. They're just a hard rock band - like them or not. And yes, I like hard rock bands.

 

These guys sound nothing like Nickelback, in my opinion. Slow, dreary nu-metal/rock.

 

If you can honestly tell me you'd bat an eyelid over a band like this if they weren't Christian I'll email you my balls to hang on your Christmas tree. :)

Nickelback, Hinder, TOAD, Rev Theory, are all pretty much the same :).... even the best song on Faber Drive sounds like Nickelback.

 

I wrote this post whilst listening to the first song on their myspace... which was pretty damn cool. The second song i listened to sucked!

The 3rd was pretty decent....

 

So would i buy this? Only if i saw it cheap at this point... but there are people here whod be interested in it... hence the post...

I agree all those bands you mentioned are similar in style - and all are modern melodic rock/hard rock bands. I definitely wouldn't put these Nailpoint guys anywhere near that category. Even in that list, Rev Theory borders very close to nu-metal at times. Aside from the killer first track.

 

No issue with you posting this at all, mate. Just giving my opinion which is sadly something I do often. ;)

 

FYI, if you really do dig these guys try stuff like:

 

Trustgame

Evans Blue

Crossfade

Nonpoint

Everything At Once

 

... and literally 99% of the bands at that blog link I think I gave you once - Rest In Peace I think it's called.

I'll have to pass. I like my Christmas tree ornaments to be big enough for people to actually see them.

... instead of so big they block all doorways and don't allow anyone to enter the room? I see your logic, mate. No worries. Balls are staying attached anyway... 'cause no one really likes Nailpoint. :D

Well, Geoff, consider yourself wrong (something you should be used to by now), because I finally got around to listening to the songs on Nailpoint's MySpace page and I really liked 'em. Not just kind of liked them--really liked them. Liked them a lot. And them being Christian has nothing to do with it (though in my case, it's a plus, obviously). So, do you need my address to mail your balls to? I figure once I have them, I'll sell them on eBay as a rarity--The World's Smallest Testicles!--and use the money to buy a copy of Nailpoint's CD.

I honestly don't believe you for a second, mate. A man of your sometimes good taste would not sink this low, even for the sake of a few references to God. ;)

Honestly, buddy, all jokes aside, I really do like what I'm hearing with this band. Reminds me quite a bit of Decyfer Down, which, if you recall, I ranted & raved about when it came out. So, you can keep your testicles (they're all covered with pug-spit anyway) but I will still be buying a copy of Nailpoint's album.

Yeah, you do like some of that kind of stuff, hey (poor bastard ;) )? Still, I forecast it will appear in one of your sale lists for $2 at the start of next year. :lol:

 

Seriously, though, mate, if you honestly like these guys go through that list I think I typed up here (I think). There are a ridiculous amount of bands that sound just like these clowns. I mean guys.

Where can I buy the Nailpoint CD? I have had trouble locating it tonight, except for mp3s.

I recently got my copy off eBay, but if you go to www.nailpointmusic.com and make your way to the merchandise section, you can buy it for $10. Hope that helps.

Sadly I must agree with Geoff. Total sludge rock to these ears. Just kinda droning on and on. Not a single track on their myspace impressed me at all.

    • Releases July 26. $47.08 at ImportCDs: https://www.importcds.com/dynamite-china-years-complete-recordings-1988-1993/5013929929920 8CD complete collection of recordings released by China Records. Featuring what most consider to be the classic line-up of The Dogs D'Amour; Jo 'Dog' Almeida on guitar, Steve James on bass, the onomatopoeic Bam on drums, and of course fronted by songwriter and singer, the inimitable Tyla. Propelled by the albums' three singles 'The Kid from Kensington', 'I Don't Want You to Go' and 'How Come It Never Rains' edging their way up the charts, when The Dogs D'Amour's genre-defining 1988 "debut" 'In The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2) was released in 1988, it must have looked like the band was an overnight sensation. But this couldn't have been further from the truth. The Dogs D'Amour originally formed in 1983, and had already recorded two previous "debut" albums. First was 1984's now highly collectable 'The State We're In', for Finnish label Kumibeat. Further recordings were made in 1985 and 1986 for Watanabe Records in Japan, and it's the latter where this collection kicks off. 'The (Un)Authorised Bootleg Album' (CD1) was the record originally intended for Japan. The second set in this collection is the aforementioned In 'The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2), bursting with classics. A highly prolific band in their earliest days, 'Errol Flynn' (re-titled 'King Of The Thieves' in the States) (CD3) was released in 1989 as was the extended mini-album, 'A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles Vol. 1' (CD4), a collection of acoustic songs that reached the UK Top 20. 1990 saw the release of '... Straight?!!' (CD5) featuring the singles 'Victims of Success', 'Empty World' and 'Back On The Juice'. Unfortunately, and in true rock 'n' roll tradition, the band split up on stage in Los Angeles in 1991. Thankfully the band regrouped for the self-explanatory '... More Unchartered Heights Of Disgrace' (CD6) in 1993. This eight CD collection is completed with no less than two discs of rarities, live tracks and B-sides with 'Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD7) and 'Even More Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD8), making this the most complete and comprehensive collection of the band's recordings for China.   - Disc 1 - 1 Firework Girl 2 Chains 3 Gold 4 Pourin' Out My Heart 5 Wait Until I'm Dead 6 How Do You Fall in Love Again? 7 Kiss This Joint 8 Heroine 9 Tales of Destruction 10 Dynamite Jet Saloon 11 Swingin' the Bottle - Disc 2 - 1 Debauchery 2 I Don't Want You to Go 3 How Come It Never Rains 4 Last Bandit 5 Medicine Man 6 Gonna Get It Right 7 Everything I Want 8 Heartbreak 9 Billy Two Rivers 10 Wait Until I'm Dead 11 Sometimes 12 The Kid from Kensington 13 The State I'm in - Disc 3 - 1 Drunk Like Me 2 Goddess from the Gutter 3 Hurricane 4 Satellite Kid 5 Errol Flynn 6 Planetary Pied Piper 7 Princess Valium 8 Dogs Hair 9 Trail of Tears 10 Ballad of Jack 11 The Prettiest Girl in the World 12 The Girl Behind the Glass 13 Things Seem to Go Wrong 14 Oooh!
