Citing influences such as Skid Row, Guns 'N Roses, & Kiss, albeit with beefy modern production, I suspect a whole bunch of people here (OK, maybe just a few) will like what they hear when they check out this band. Click on the link below to go to their MySpace page and crank the tunes:

Driving, catchy, energetic, melodic...and plenty of backing vocals!!! From what I can find, album comes out on May 18th.

 

Anyone else digging this?

'Bumpin' is great. The other two are not so great, but definitely an interesting band. Nice find.

Well, got to spin this one today. I'm undecided. It definitely kicks ass and I will go on record as saying that the opening song, 'Poison' has possibly the best backing vocal sound I have heard in decades!! It just sounds awesome.

 

On the plus side, these guys rock hard, they keep their songs short and to the point - 12 songs clocking in at around 37mins means that on average these songs are either just under or right on the 3 minute mark, which I personally absolutely love. Too many songs seem to drag those few extra seconds to make the 3 minute mark at least, even if it's not required, but these guys just play the song and finish when the time is right. I really like that aspect.

 

My only problem is that the songs aren't that catchy. Decent but not great hooks.

 

Here's the track list:

 

01. Poison ( 2:50)

02. Bumpin' ( 2:42)

03. My Mom Hates Me ( 3:22)

04. Turn It Up ( 3:02)

05. It's Too Late ( 2:47)

06. Whisky And Women ( 3:03)

07. Angel (On The Wrong Side Of Town) ( 3:05)

08. Time ( 3:35)

09. Suffocate ( 3:00)

10. Barely Breathing ( 3:10)

11. Livin' A Lie ( 3:13)

12. Change ( 3:06)

 

From that list, 'Poison' was great, 'Angel' is a decent mid-tempo tune and the closer, 'Change' was also one of the best. The latter being two of the more melodic songs on the disc. Yeah, I dunno. Looking at that tracklist, there were a lot of average on the verge of fillers here. :( Shame, 'cause they sound amazing. Hopefully they get stuck into a catchier follow-up soon.

I finally got my copy of this in the mail from CD Universe. And, I gotta say, this is a pretty damn good album. Some cool anthems and sing along choruses make this a welcome addition to the collection. Stand out tracks for me were "Bumpin", "Turn It Up", "Whiskey and Women", and "Barely Breathing". There was maybe three songs that I would call fillers. The three minute runtime for each song worked well too. These guys can rock just fine. "My Mom Hates Me" is a tongue in cheek tune, but man it sticks in your head after just one listen. People should check these guys out.

I am really loving this band based on the myspace tunes. Definitely will pick this one up but the Jap bonus track is so good I am contemplating buying the import version.

 

I figured these guys would generate major heat around here. No one else like what they hear?

Yeah, me too. The CD actually sounded much better a few listens down the line. Really quite a good one indeed.

You could say that about 90% of the modern hard rock bands we discuss in this forum. I can't recall if these guys do guitar solos or not, but I do agree that this band would probably very easily fit in the Hard Rock forum based on music and image alone.

Backed. Hardly a misfit in the hard rock category, imo.

 

I've been trying to grab the 3 bonus tracks available on the special edition version of their debut (tracks 13, 14 and 15: Run,Run,Run/City of the Living Dead/Gimme Some More) but Amazon UK has put geographic limitations on it disqualifying overseas buyers from purchasing them.

 

Anyone with access to Amazon UK able to buy them for me? Not much of a computer guy so not sure how you'd send them to me but I can pay you via paypal beforehand so you're not out of pocket making the purchase.

 

Any takers, PM me or email at shamusquinn@hotmail.com

 

And if anyone is a fan of this band, you really should check out those 3 songs.

Hmm, I had heard 'Run, run, run' and didn't really care for it. I didn't know about the other two bonus tracks though. Good to know.

yeah weird comment. People should check the bands discussed in this forum more often - most would probably dig some of the stuff discussed here.

 

I guess what has labelled the modern sound is the down-tuned guitar and lack of solos but that really doesnt exist much any more.........most of the modern stuff this year has smoking solos and really good melody.

    • I reckon it's worth asking the question. 
    • I come in genuine curiosity, but this hospital argument... I'd like clarification. So originally we couldn't do anything because covid was going to kill everyone on earth. Then there was a vaccine and we couldn't do anything until we all got vaccinated. Now we're all vaccinated and the sole reason left that we're still living piece of shit lives is because we don't want to overload the hospitals? Is this the correct read on it? So, if this is true, we've resigned to the truth that is this is how the rest of our lives look? Masks, QR codes, crowd capacities, covid tests if we want to travel interstate, let alone international travel - then we need 87 tests and quarantine every time a new variant pops up, which will be fortnightly, or at the latest, monthly. This is it now, is it? Because if it's not, how does the end of it look? When will it be okay to live again without fear of clogging up the hospitals?  I can only speak for Australia on this part of it, but all we've ever heard about is stopping the strain on the hospitals, but has anyone ever seen it? Would anyone even consider overloaded hospitals as an issue if the media hadn't told us it was an issue? I ask as anyone I know who works in healthcare, and to an extent, even myself, as a medical courier who has worked every single day of the last two years... no one I know, or I, have ever seen any single even remote sign of all this strain on our health system. So, like the rest of this pandemic, is it just another media beat up? All they've done for two years straight is belt fear into us, so is it unreasonable to think this is just another branch from that tree? I'm just sick of daily excuses why our lives are still fucking horrible. Anytime the mere suggestion of return to a "normal" life gets brought up, there's a whole list of media-inspired reasons why we have to continue living in misery.  Anyway, I think that was about it. I'm just in eternal wonder about why we all had to get vaccinated when it hasn't actually changed anything about how covid is viewed and feared. Covid is viewed exactly as it was two years ago. It still governs every aspect of how we live, so all these promises about getting vaccinated so we could go back to a normal life were obviously all bullshit.  I was thinking about Australia's trajectory this morning. So if we keep up this pathetic excuse for an existence - the daily covid rate is around 1300 daily cases - let's call it 1500 daily cases if and when the other states open up. So if we continue on this trajectory, living in paralysed fear of the virus, acting like every case of covid is terminal cancer, we should get past this covid thing in about 15,333 days. So around 42 years. That, of course doesn't allow for population growth, but let's assume the cases go up with population growth proportionately.  So that's the outlook in Australia. In 42 years, we might finally move on from covid, based on our current trajectory? What a future to look forward to! Oh, actually, that doesn't include cases prior to today, so maybe we can get out of this thing in closer to 41 years? Life just got a whole lot brighter right then.    
    • Really nice album cover indeed...but ten for me this last while...yawn...as Jez pointed out they all sound the same,i'd have difficulty picking which track came from which album tbh
    • Yeah it starts off very good then tails off round midway...but the defs have potential and judging by the new tunes could fulfil it...fingers crossed
    • And mine still hasn't been sent...quality service right there  too late to get a refund? lol
    • Yeah Badd Boyz is very good,would be my fav of the three...I really like the Platinum Overdose albums but I know where you're coming from,I also prefer their more melodic/glammy/sleazy side to the metal type stuff
    • Here's what it was for me, I mostly voted on familiarity: 1. I'll be honest, I didn't know who either of these singers were.  Of the two I've only heard music from Harem Scarem so it was Hess for me 2. I like Coverdale's voice more than Tyler's 3. I voted Michaels since I've only heard a handful of Enuff Z'nuff songs and I listen to a lot of Poison.  With such a limited sample size this might change when I hear more Z'nuff but for right now it has to be Michaels 4. Haven't heard a lot of Mason so I voted Jani.  As far as I'm concerned Jani is the full package when it comes to singer-songwriters, he's an absolute Legend 5. Of all of these I feel like this is the least fair comparison, they don't sound even remotely alike to me.  While Pearcy isn't a phenomenal vocalist in the traditional sense, he's so much more distinct in my opinion.  I think Phil's voice could get lost in the shuffle, but when Pearcy sings you KNOW it's Pearcy which is arguably more important in some cases 6. Haven't heard Queensryche with La Torre, so Tate it is 7. Bon Jovi is my favorite band of all time, come at me 8. Same with Tate, I've only heard Great White with Russell so Russ it is 9. I like both versions of Danger Danger for different reasons, but I have to go with Poley for this one 10. Haven't heard anything from Heart I don't think, so Elliot all the way 11. Haven't heard much of Cold Sweat or Cathey, but I do love that first Lynch Mob album. Point Logan! 12. Once again had to look these guys up, but this time I've actually heard one full album from each.  I assumed Bulen was Keeling, but that aside this was probably the closest one for me.  Ended up going for Baton Rouge but if you asked me in a few weeks that might change We should do this again sometime, maybe with guitarists/drummers/bassists/etc?
    • Your gonna make me do this aren't you? OK fine, well should've been vaxed, guess it serves ya right, you right wing Nazi piece of shit, why don't you go back to Hitler and check in, I knew your were fac, and your cis, all you fascists think your better then the law, it has to do with your cis gender, you cant help it, born in the coat of missing pigment your white supremacist privilege just eeks out,
