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.

    • Hey everyone, Johnny Leigh has made it into the final stretch in the new steel panther bassist search, we need everyone to go to this link and vote for him, this is fucking HUGE!  this was the bassist for Young & Fabulous, I just met him but he's one of the coolest guys ive met, and he's a fucking bad ass bass player.   https://steelpantherrocks.com/pages/the-road-to-the-road?fbclid=IwAR0o6fG03T_b3iuJCrqENuets5sX_XkvTHZCy_2ODjhL1xyiHzTK9qMJwC0
    • Haha poor DLR. But Axl is one of the most under or over-rated singers depending what camp you are in. I think he is great.
    • Wow, this'd make me happy. 
    • didn't see this coming??? https://www.facebook.com/100044481307670/posts/443250043834369/  
    • Intrigued who you didn't know. Assume it's the couple I quickly looked up, lol. 1. Gronwall. Love both versions of HEAT but Gronwall undoubtedly has the stronger voice.  2. I went with Rexon, but only because we only have such a small sample size of Keyes? Is he still even in Crashdiet? As much as I love Crazy Lixx, I have to say, if I knew more about this Keyes fella I'd probably pick him because on voice alone, I wouldn't say I'm a Rexon fan. Thankfully his band is killer.  3. Whiteman. lol, I like the guy but not many he'd beat in this. Since I haven't heard Rhino Bucket for a few decades, for good reason, I had to give it to Whiteman. 4. Gotta go with Axl. Again, not a mad fan of his voice, but respect is due for his range. Never thought much of DLR at all, so Axl in this one easily.  5. Again, don't really like either of these guys' voice to be fair. Love Keel, but, gotta say, on a purely vocal level, is Ron Keel the worst vocalist in all of hard rock? Quite possibly (not including that ass licker from The Darkness, of course). Don't like Shortino, but admittedly when he sings the more melodic/commercial stuff he actually scrubs up pretty good (eg. Badd Boyz). So my pick is Shortino. 6. lol, two more voices I don't individually like. Swan sound so strained all the time, and I never quite loved Tramp's voice, despite being in a sensational band. I actually went with Swan in this instance.  7. Hetfield over Mustaine. Don't really care for either, but content with my pick.  8. Jizzy goes alright, was never a fan of McMaster. Much as I liked Dangerous Toys, his voice was pretty awful at time, to be fair.  9. Bach, easily. Love Steelheart and Mike, but Bach all the way. 10. Wow, surprised by this result so far. Prime Dokken is as good as it gets, but on a purely vocal level, definitely got to give this one to Meniketti, who's a pretty damn fine vocalist.  11. Easy one. Not a fan of Vescera, love Tempest (especially when he was still making good music). 12. Another pretty straightforward one. Blades is solid, but Gramm has an unmistakably fantastic voice.   
    • CRT is what they are trying to force into our elementary schools, it teaches kids that they have privilege if they are white, if they are black they are oppressed, and no matter what they do in life all the rules and laws in this country are racist and rigged so if your a minority its all working against you, it's garbage, and it's further proof that these fucking cockroaches really are not interested in trying to improve race relations in the US, they are only into playing identity politics and making sure racism not only survives but thrives, if racism goes away then so does their meal ticket.
