Genres tweaked and new genre: "Modern Hard Rock"

Recommended Posts

Probably overdue, but I've tweaked some of the genre titles and added one.

 

"Lite AOR" is now "Pop AOR / Westcoast"

 

"AOR" is now "Melodic Rock / AOR"

 

"Hard Rock" is now "80s Hard Rock"

 

"Southern Rock" is now "Southern and Blues Rock"

 

and I've added a category for "Modern Hard Rock"

 

With all the good stuff coming out from Hinder, Nickelback, Shinedown, etc., they're too close and overlapping the styles on HH to be excluded.

 

 

If you feel there are any existing bands on HH that should be moved into the "Modern Hard Rock" (or to any other category for that matter), please post to this thread and we'll discuss.

 

 

I also updated the icon for HH Radio and moved it to the top of the page.

I actually think he'll be mad about it considering he hates the label.

Can't remember ever saying that. At least not anymore than I dislike any other label.

Last time I checked, there were actually a couple of us here with good taste is music, mate. In fact, you might find yourself alone with your dust and vintage opinions pretty soon. ;):P

 

Anyway, awesome addition, Dan.

 

Top of my head, of those already on the site I'd put these in the 'modern' category:

 

Ra

Vonray

Antheneum

 

Will think of more as they come.

Yeah you got upset with my use of that label(I'm not sure what thread it was in) just a few weeks ago saying something like the newer stuff isn't any different than the stuff from the late 80's. Not exact quote but to me your post made me think that you didn't like the label "Modern Rock". :unsure:

Maybe a misinterpretation of what I said. If I recall, it was something along the lines of you asking Jarred when he'd started listening to modern rock and I merely pointed out that although this label is required to set it apart from bands like HEAT and Marcello/Vestry, it's all just melodic hard rock. You can separate it with labels all you want, but as Dan said above the two are pretty much interchangable these days and I just hate when people write something off purely for the fact is' "modern rock", when in 2008, every new CD we listen to is technically "modern rock".

I don't think there was a misinterpretation at all.

Not that it really matters.

I believe it was the Nickelback 'Dark Horse' thread if you care to revisit. ;)

If it means I have to listen to that dreadful album again then thanks but no thanks. :blink:

Great idea... There's too many good modern bands that have some pretty good roots in the 80's style. We must "embrace" them here :popcorn:

:omg:

I wouldn't take it too seriously. Just trying to prove a point, I dare say. I bet he secretly adores it. :lol:

Great changes...!

 

I guess I'll ask... so Geoff doesn't have to. Can we add SR-71 to the HH site now...? :bananamac:

Ha ha .. ! I knew this reply would come ! :drink:

 

Don't worry, though ! I was just kidding, of course. Some of this more modern stuff is really good (I don't actually have such a dust and vintage opinion, as a matter of fact !). Ra and Vonray are excellent examples, and they have been part of my collection for a very long time and rightly so. And I wouldn't mind at all if SR-71 and Hinder were added to HH. But it doesn't have to be Cauterize, does it ?!?! ;)

 

I still would like Bryan Adams to be added as well, but that's a different topic ! :whistle:

    • 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.
    • Yeah, my apologies for not checking there first.  Figured H.E.A.T fans that frequent this section would be interested.
