OK, maybe I'm an idiot (I heard that, Pete!), but I'll be damned if I can find any sound samples for Rapidfire on the website. If they exist, can someone assist a blind, stupid, non-computer-savvy buffoon and point me in the right direction? I'd love to hear what this band sounds like...

i know i keep harping on about this, but hows it looking for the Pretty Angels release? is it dead in the water or just really delayed?

 

i found mp3s of the album and i really like it, would be a shame if it never got reissued....but it was announced 18 months ago so i dont have particularly high hopes for it :P

The only one of those bands that I recognize is Anacrusis, but I enjoyed their later material. How well produced is this early material or is it basically demo quality?

 

Thanks,

 

-Dan

 

It is demo quality as it was recorded by the band themselves on a 4-track tascam machine at Kevin's basement where they used to practice. The original tape was lost and a 1st gen copy (heavily used to dub all tapes they used to sell in the late 80s) was all that was left. Kenn Nardi remastered it thoroughly, but the result is still quite raw and unpolished.

 

I'll be sending you a promo package on monday, hope you can check it out and share your thoughts.

Mark, you are okay, the individual pages for all releases with info and sound samples will be launched a bit later tonight. I'm working on them right now, will post links asap. My apologies for the confusion!

 

Meanwhile, some samples can be heard at our gayspace page: http://www.myspace.com/stormspellrecords

Yeah, sorry for not posting info on this earlier. The story regarding STRANGER is very simple really: I licensed this album from Battle Cry with the assurance that Ricky Rieger is interested in seeing this release through and would be providing liner notes, lyrics, and extra materials to spice the release up. However, as of today nothing has transpired. Releasing it "as-is" is not an option I'd consider, so all I could do at this point is wait and hope the things will start moving...

P.S. if you like female-fronted power/sympho metal, please check NATURAL SPIRIT audio samples. I guarantee you'll be for a very nice surprise.

Mr. Stormspell we need desperately Teachers Pett on cd!!!!!

:bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

 

I've tried to contact Teachers Pett in the past but they never responded to my inquiries. However, at some point they contacted Patrick Stevens and told him they are considering my offer, so at least I know they've got my messages. Anyway, this was more than an year ago, so I assume their interest never transpired - fine with me. The one thing I hate is people which cannot spare 1 minute responding to an e-mail, so I probably would not have liked working with them anyway.

JONAH QUIZZ is almost ready to go. We have remastered both demos and they sound KILLER! 9 scorching songs of great Scandinavian MHR. The only thing needed is band story/lyrics which Anders is working on as we speak and DaN should be translating shortly. Hopefully this will be wrapped up soon and will be released with next batch of releases, as soon as late March or thereabouts.

I didn't know you have contacted the band, Here's the response I've got from them some time ago :

 

"Thanks for checking out our Music. Glad you liked it.

 

Currently there are no plans for any releases, though we have had a few small offers, so maybe in the future.

 

Keep checking back for any updates.

 

Thanks again."

 

The classic general answer "maybe in the future"... What a pity...

It is their music and their decision, which I can respect. I only wish they would have spent 10 seconds telling me this when I asked.

 

Anyway, I'm the first to admit I'm the smallest of the small indy labels and I'm in no position offering like 5-digit checks at this time. Regardless though, I do like to believe that for the size of my operation I do offer very fair deals which are on par with bigger established labels as Sentinel Steel for instance. Getting Anacrusis on my roster is somewhat a testimony to that, as they were quite big and renowned in their heyday.

 

What's funny with Teachers Pett situation is that they didnt even hear my offer. I shoot them a short introductory e-mail asking if they would be interested in reissuing their 80s demos on CD and offering to send them a sample pack of my current releases to check out. They never responded to this so I never had a chance telling them what I can offer.

 

Anyhow, as I said it is their decision. I hope they can find a suitable label for them, as I'd love to have their CD in my personal collection too.

Rapid fire, Anacrusis and Chemical Annihilation are mine!!!

 

Really looking forward to these!! Love those Pacific NW bands!

 

Anyone listened to the Rapidfire CD? The samples sound really good to me, but I'm not sure whether to pick it up. Already need to get the Midnight Priest and Last Descendants CDs...

Cheers mate. I listened to the Rocka Rollas samples and wasn't keen, but the Rapidfire sounded good...

    • Yeah, a few times. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to all the hype. 
    • Ok the title was clickbait, first dislike and then later like would be more accurate but hey, you clicked on the topic, so it worked! 😬
    • As a few others mentioned, musically it isn't too far off from their early material, but the song itself doesn't do much for me unfortunately.   In watching the video it looks like they've got a new drummer.
    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time. 
    • Now also the official video is out, recorded live in front of  large crowd in California.  This song seems to be a real grower. Was actually a bit disappointed after first 2 listens. But still played it few more times. And then it happened - when I was doing other things, without music, parts of song started playing in my head ;-).   
    • not quite is accordance with the thread, but I saw Vain support Skid Row back in the day and really didn't like them, then years later actually discovered that I liked the debut - it was after Enough Rope was released and I worked backwards. Also I returned the John Kilzer Memory in the Making cd, but came to love the album but still don't own the cd
    • I think I saw them at Cathouse in St.Kilda .  It got re issue 3 years ago with a different cover
    • Have you had a chance to give "Bangalore Choir - On Target" a sping yet?
    • They actually sound great together, despite your reservations towards Floor.
