This kicked my arse this morning. Some delicious straight up hard rock.

Can't listen at work, but looking forward to checking 'em out when I get home. I always enjoy a good ass-kicking, musically-speaking. It'll have a hard time topping the last 18 Visions CD though...that puppy is phenomenal.

OK, just checked this out and am liking what I'm hearing. Down 'n' dirty, gritty hard rock in the vein of Buckcherry/GNR but with some really cool choruses (as Lennie mentioned, track three is a corker). I will definitely grab a copy when it gets released on 3/10/09.

 

Thanks for the heads up, my good man! :dance:

I really enjoyed the last 18 Visions CD, espcially 'Broken hearted' which is one of my fav songs ever. As for Burn Halo they have an awesome hard rock sound and should appeal to many here.

This is good stuff and has made it to my 'buy list'.....but I've got to ask who is '18 Visions'..??

All you need to know about Eighteen Visions is their last CD, the s/t one from I think it was 2006. Utterly essential slab of modern melodic hard rock.

 

Oh, and can't wait to hear this one. I thought he was doing a solo disc? Oh well, either way I can't wait.

:agree: This is a pretty rocking release. Haven't heard it for a while, gotta dig it out again...

I'm liking the single "Dirty Little Girl". Based on the other couple of songs it's still too early to tell whether the whole album's a keeper or not though. Here's hoping!

This sounds pretty cool, I'm definitely picking this up. I wouldn't normally have bothered as I truly disliked 18 VISIONS with a passion, they were soulless modern rock IMO (the only good thing to come out of that band was that they broke up and then BLEEDING THROUGH got formed), but this sounds more interesting...

First spin detailed impressions:

 

01. Dirty Little Girl (feat. AVENGED SEVENFOLD's Synyster Gates) ; good solid hard rock opener.

02. Save Me ; another one like the opener - solid modern hard rock in the style of the last disc from 18visions.

03. Here With Me ; Beautiful melodic rocker which draws heavily on the more melodic side of 18Visions again.

04. To Late To Tell You Now ; album highlight so far. Superb mid-tempo / ballad melodic gem. Again, like the better songs off the last 18Visions disc.

05. So Addicted ; pretty average hard rock track. Not the best.

06. Dead End Roads & Lost Highways ; another solid but not amazing hard rocker.

07. Saloon Song ; and back to a delicious melodic rocker with a wonderful chorus. Love it.

08. Our House ; decent but again pretty average hard rock. Not bad.

09. Fallin Faster ; and time for another gem. Delicious ballad with another big chorus. Probably the weakest of the more melodic songs so far, but good anyway.

10. Anejo (feat. AVENGED SEVENFOLD's Synyster Gates) ; well hello. This is nice. Killer hard rock riff - sounds like something off a Crue album or the like - killer hard rock track with a pretty cool chorus and a great solo. Nice, nice stuff.

11. Back To The Start ; Excellent ballad. Beautiful pre-chorus/chorus. A highlight of the disc.

12. Gasoline ; Oh man, what a closer. Killer 80's hard rock style riff to start off with, killer verses, another nice guitar solo and a real highlight of the album to finish up. Reminds me of vintage Gunners. Marvelous!!!

 

In conclusion, if you loved the last 18Visions disc this is what you'd expect to naturally follow afterwards. It's not as heavy and there's no more screams, but this is just a good solid hard rock album just like what 18Visions were always going to ending up doing. Like that last disc, there is a division between hard rockers and melodic/mid-tempo numbers. The split wasn't 50/50 before, but it is now. Nice. Well worth checking out.

Bump. The cd was finally released today after being delayed for a couple of weeks. Picked my copy up today at Best Buy for $9.99. Not a bad price at all. And the verdict, very good straight ahead guitar driven hard rock. Influences seem to range from Hinder to Buckcherry to Motley Crue to 18 Visions and even a little G'N'R. All in all it was a nice breath of fresh air from all the canned pop shit that cotinues to plague the airwaves. Out of 12 tracks I only found two to be what I would call fillers. Definitely recommended. It was a nice mix of ballads and rockers. Too many good tracks to call out any favorites yet.

Okay, I have to check, mate. Do we have the same track list? Are 'Back To The Start' and 'Gasoline' the last two on your disc? If so, WOW. They were two of my favourite songs on this thing...

Yes, 'Back to the start' and 'Gasoline' are the last two tracks on my disc as well. The two fillers for me I was referring to are "Save Me" (I like the verses better than the chorus on this one) and "Gasoline". I do like the track "Back to the start". I've spun the disc again and I'm finding my favs so far to be "Dirty Little Girl", "Anejo", and "Saloon". I guess no one else has picked up this little gem yet.

Cool. Yeah, 'Save me' wasn't one of my faves either. I think there are a couple of fillers, but I love that riff on 'Gasoline'. :)

So you guys have all gone mad. I got this thing sent to me free and it's just crap - fucking awful vocals (he sounds like a ringer for that muppet from HINDER), stripped-down sound, no real hooks, and some very very formulaic hard rock. It's like a mix of Nickleback/Tesla/Hinder etc etc... None of which I like one little bit. This is Modern Rock without the melody or hooks. So I didn't like 18 VISIONS either, but it was better than this!

 

ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz....

 

P.s. Like HINDER, I'm up for a fight on this one as it's pure SHITE.

This cd kicks ass! There are a few fillers but for the most part, this is a fine slab of sleazy hard rock. Thumbs up. Still hasn't knocked the Johnny Lima "Livin' Out Loud" disc out of my player yet. But it will definitely get a bunch of spins at work next week. That first tune "Dirty Little Girl" sounds soooooo damn much like Buckcherry. Anybody else here Buckcherry in that song?

I agree! This is a pretty good little disc! Nice modern hard rock.

I still think it's solid. Yeah, there are enough fillers on it but the melodic moments are pretty good. I must say, I put a bunch of songs on my Ipod and when a couple have spun recently I have found myself thinking, maybe that doesn't deserve a position here. Still, I dig this enough. :)

I played this yesterday for the first time and I have to say I'm a little impressed.

I hear a mix of Buckcherry with maybe a little Nickelback in places. Good stuff.

You're such a modern rocker. Have you heard Papa Roach's 'Metamorphosis'? Blows this one out of the water, imo.

I have heard that one and yeah it's pretty good.

Much better than that crappy rap metal they did on their first couple of releases.

Backed. You should check out their 'The Paramour Sessions' disc too, which is even better than the awesome newie. :)

    • Why the fuck did a "best of" album take seven years to be released??
    • On a lighter note, this vision of covid in the future is hilarious 😂   
    • The "filling up the hospitals" argument is a slippery slope. I read an economic futurist book that looked at that argument in detail. He predicted that in the future we will all be controlled by insurance, whether we can get it or not. Genetic screening, vaccine passports, lifestyle choices, etc. If we are truly so worried about our health system capability, how long until smokers cannot get healthcare? Or those who play contact sport (unless they pay gigantic health premiums)? Or those who have a predisposition to a genetic health condition, eg. heart disease? Etc etc. Perhaps our treatment of the covid unvaccinated is the precursor of things to come.      
    • synthy? really. I need to spin that again. I thought it had quite a ballsy guitar sound 🤔 
    • Yeah I added this yesterday in the Eonian section and quoted your old post lol      
    • I'm not into harsh vocals at all, but you're right, they contrast between harsh and clean very well.  
    • This is the problem.  They end up getting sick, filling the hospitals and taking resources and care away from other people. I personally know somebody that had a bad stomach pain recently.  They went to the ER near and sat in the waiting room for 12 hours before being seen and that was only because the pain had gotten so bad that they were demanding to be seen.  Turned out the person had appendicitis and it had ruptured while in the waiting room.  They were rushed into emergency surgery and almost died.....But did survive. Basically that waiting time was the result of two things....The hospital packed with COVID cases and lack of staff due to them quitting because of vaccine mandates.  So the combination of people quitting their jobs because they don't want to get vaccinated combined with the rising COVID cases is just a bad combination.  And according to people I know that work in the medical field, they say the vast majority of people showing up at hospitals for COVID treatment are unvaccinated people. I respect the right of people not to get vaccinated....I really do.  If you don't want to trust science and medicine and that's your belief, then great.  But if somebody is that strongly anti-vaccine/anti-science & medicine, then stay the heck out of the hospital if you come down with it.  Just let it run it's course and whatever happens, happens.  Don't go running to the Doctor to save you by using medicine and treatment when you never wanted it in the first place. This thing is never going away on our current trajectory. 
    • How many people will be suing their governments when 5 to 7 years from now they find out the vax they got for covid-19 gave them terminal cancer or something else that will negatively impact their life. I'm not anti-vax but I think these vax's came about way too quickly. I know more people online who were fully vaccinated and died anyway from covid then I do unvaccinated who got deathly sick or died from it. I just wish this would go the fuck away. Last year at this time I was really ill from that bullshit. No more hospitals for a long time for me hopefully.
