Easily the hardest yet:

 

Little Caesar - Little Caesar ; I actually ended up selling both these CDs and was not a fan, but debut was definitely the better disc.

 

Lynch Mob - Wicked Sensation ; super hard one, but I went with the debut for a couple more real stunning tracks.

 

Southgang - Tainted Angel ; another hard one. 'Group Therapy' is HEAPS more consistent, but the best songs on the debut just can't be ignored, so I went with the debut.

 

Tora Tora - Surprise Attack ; not as big a fan of this band as most, but I do prefer the debut for sure.

 

Love/Hate - Blackout In The Red Room ; easy choice. Cool disc, the second was a little bland.

 

Sleeze Beez - Powertool ; almost impossible to choose but I went with the 2nd one for the same reason as a few above, the best songs on it are just a bit better than the best on the debut. Both are amazing though.

Al of these are close for me.

 

Little Ceaser-I voted for the 2nd one since it's the only one I've heard although I've always wanted the debut but have never heard it.

 

Lynch Mob-Wow this one is so hard but I voted for the self-titled disc due to Mason's involvement but damn I love the debut as well.

 

Southgang-I voted for Group Therapy but Tainted Angel is excellent as well.

 

Tora Tora-Suprise Attack always gets my vote but again the follow up was great too.

 

Love/Hate-Blackout in the Red Room but love Wasted in America is great.

 

Sleze Beez-Powertool got my vote but SB&T is awesome too.

The debuts swept this one, until the very end...

 

1. Not a Little Caesar fan (unless we're talking about pizza), but when forced to listen to them, prefer the debut over "Under the Influence."

 

2. Lynch Mob. "Wicked Sensation" over self-titled. 'Nuff said.

 

3. Love me some Southgang. Two great albums, but the better songs are on "Tainted Angel," so they get the edge over "Group Therapy." Both are justifiable choices, however.

 

4. Yet another band that does about as much for me an an enema witha porcupine, but I rate "Surprise Attack" ahead of "Wild America."

 

5. When it comes to Love/Hate, ya gotta go with "Blackout in the Red Room."

 

6. Here's where the sophomores finally garnered a vote, as "Powertool" is lightyears better than the debut. For comparison, if "Screwed, Blued & Tattooed" is Geoff's microscopic gnat of a dick, then "Powertool" is John Holme's legendary mammoth member.

No one else likes the Lynch Mob s/t ? I actually prefer it.

I LOVE it... the just love the debut a little more. Both are sensational, though.

Wrong.

 

I should actually be taking this up with Rob, but you're far more evil than him so I'll take it out on you... Sleez Beez's debut is 'Look Like Hell'. Porcupine f*cker.

Wasn't that one so bad that it shouldn't count?

 

Seriously though until I came to this site I wasn't even aware that they had a disc before SB&T with a different vocalist since it didn't come out on a major label and it wasn't released in the US.

Yeah, if I were them I wouldn't claim it either ...

Yes, it is so bad every copy released should be burnt in a communal bonfire. :)

 

Took me a long time to realise there was a disc before 'Screwed Blued & Tattooed' too. It's the kind of disc that I can't see anyone in the band being proud to admit they recorded.

    • That is simply brilliant...such a great band...love that artwork...this has made my day  
    • New EP out now, digital only. From rocknloadmag.com: Swedish melodic hard rock supergroup Crowne will release a new live EP entitled ‘Live From Studio Gröndahl’ on 19th August, a little treat to hold fans over as they await the release of a second album by the band. A live performance ‘Kings In The North’ from the EP is available from today on all digital platforms. The studio recording of ‘Kings In The North’ was the title track of their 2021 debut album, a record that truly delivered on the promise of the combined talents of the group members. Comprised of vocalist Alexander Strandell (Art Nation), guitarist/keyboardist/producer Jona Tee (H.E.A.T.), bassist John Levén (Europe) and drummer Christian Lundqvist (The Poodles), the record was a tour de force of Scandinavian melodic hard rock. It also featured guitar solos from Love Magnusson (Dynazty), who has now joined the line-up as permanent lead guitarist. ‘Live From Studio Gröndahl’ features the quintet tearing through five songs from ‘Kings In The North’ and allows fans to hear (and see) them playing live in an intimate setting. Crowne is the most exciting, thrilling supergroup created to date from the Swedish melodic hard rock scene. Having already crafted a beast of a debut, this stellar cast of outstanding musicians are currently working diligently to better it with the recording of its follow-up.

    • That's good to hear. The album Vanity Kills was pretty awesome. Some of the songs had bit of modern rock vibe to them which I thought was cool. Yep, hope we get to hear more music from you guys. 
    • Album out now. Listen to the rest of the album:                  
    • 'Forgotten Toys' out now. Listen to the rest of the album:            
    • Love these guys. In my opinion, they are more of hard/melodic rock than synthwave. Plenty of guitar riffs and solos. Another killer track, my fave song so far this year. 
    • Want to clear  all pacman 256 levels while spinning this monster 
    • Yes, I'm the new bassplayer :). I have asked Ward Dufraimont to answer your question, as he is better suited to reply: In a nutshell : Expectations were high in 2010 with a debut album out on MelodicRock Records and big dreams, unfortunately the wheels started coming off from the word ‘go’. After losing our permanent drummer and rehearsal space and wasting precious time trying to sort that all out, frustration started to kick in. In an effort to keep moving forward, we recorded a second full length album in 2012, which sits unmixed on a hard-drive somewhere. Sometimes life gets in the way, and we decided to shelve the whole thing before friendships were lost. In 2022, with enough water under the bridge, we are back in full force, with a deluxe reissue of the debut album (out of print for years) to kickstart the whole thing. Playing out as much as we can, opening for the likes of FM, Jelusick, Gun, and others this year, spreading the word. We hope to have a new single out later this year, and more new music next year. A new decade, a new lineup, a fresh start. Nothing’s gonna stop us now !
    • New album out today.  Gave it one listen and seems pretty decent and in line with their last album. Worth checking if you liked their last one.
