Sahara Rain "Sand In Your Hand"

New band out of Switzerland produced by Michael Bormann. LOTS of big choruses and background vocals going on based on their few myspace songs. Should appeal to plenty on this board.

Nice find, not a big fan of the vocals but the songs themselves & the awesome harmonies make this sound pretty cool. It's kinda Melodic Metal - a bit like Starbreaker - with plenty of keys, will definitely check this out...

Yeah, I've been seeing this band's name pop up in a few places this week and was looking for some more on them. I actually thought it was another Bormann-fronted project. :lol: They sound pretty good, but like Tim I'm not sure how keen I am on the vocals. Nice big choruses, definitely sounds a lot like recent Bormann projects. I'm not sure this'll rank too high with me, but I definitely will be giving it a good and proper spin.

Anyone picked this up? If so would like to hear how good this is (difficult to judge from the very few soundclips)....

First three songs are boring crap, mate. I guess I'll listen to the rest of it, but not particularly in a hurry after that start.

Yeah, I must have said it in another thread (I thought it was here?) but I agree. There are a couple of okay songs (but still not great) towards the end, but the damage is already done. The start and majority of this CD is just so average and filler-packed. One of the most boring listens I've had for a while. I doubt I'll even spin it again to be honest.

I did catch the sound samples of THE TROPHY yesterday. Bormann has whored himself out yet again. Sigh. Again, it was decent, but it's nothing like his glory days with Jaded Heart.

Listening to the myspace now.. reminds me of Crystal Ball.

I haven't really dug Crystal Ball since their first 2 flawless releases, but even their last few CDs are better than this, imo.

So did anyone else bother with this or did they (wisely) take my word on it? I listened to it again last night for Matt's sake, but man, this is just crap. Some of the weakest songs I've heard on this type of release in the genre for ages. Awful CD.

    • I saw from Magnus on You Tube in the video premiere that it's just a one off single that is being released on Vinyl.  There is no album coming in near future. Although, I still wouldn't be surprised to see a deluxe edition of Megalomanium at some point with this song on it.
    • I've seen the term 'Acetards' used a bit on Facebook lately.i guess some people get him. I've never seen him really as a singer at all. He made some earlier stuff work but since then the fun of his weird voice wore off and now it's just embarrassing.
    • He's known as a fearsome predator of the ocean but he's also known for catching rats on land.
    • Predicting that a LeBrock song will be good is kind of like predicting that intimate intercourse with this would probably feel pretty nice
    • Nice to hear that AOR had a big influence on someone that grew up past the 80's music scene. Good writing and the 80's movies someone is putting the songs to really helps bring the songs out. I went through a bunch of the synthwave songs on  this site, not a genre I ever looked at much. Sounds like some decent stuff there, might have to pay more attention to it.
    • Even though loud music had resulted in extreme hearing loss, he wouldn’t change his spots.

    • At 1980 are a synthwave due cosisting of Adrian Quesada Michelena from Spain and Josh Dally from England. It started out as a personal project for Adrian who was born in 1980, hence the name. He contacted Josh for a vocal performance on a more or less finished track at the time and then they worked together on another track this time cowriting it and voila At 1980 as a duo was born. The AOR influence you hear comes from the fact Adrian is a big fan of melodic rock.
