BANGALORE CHOIR SINGER POSTS NEW SONG SAMPLE ONLINE:

 

March 14, 2009

 

Bangalore Choir singer David Reece, who once replaced Udo Dirkschneider in Accept, has posted another sample from his upcoming solo album. The new song is entitled "Higher" and can be heard at www.reece-rocks.com. Previous samples, for the songs "I'll Remember You", "We Were Alive" and "Chasing Shadows" can also be heard at the website.

 

In January David sent Sleaze Roxx the following update, ""I have signed with AOR HEAVEN for my solo release which is due early this year. I'm recording it at Andy Susemihl's studio in southern Germany and Andy, who is the former guitarist for UDO, is co-writing and playing all guitars on the record as well as producing and mixing. The bass player is Jochen Funders from the group Holy Moses and on drums will be Stephan Swartzman from Accept, UDO and Krokus. My new record promises to be heavy melodic rock and I'm freeekin stoked about it!! We also are currently booking shows for the spring and summer throughout Europe.

 

I've also recently completed a track on the new Voices of Rock record which is produced by Michael Voss and due out early this year as well. Also, Martin Kronlund and I are currently writing for a new Gypsy Rose record with plans for a 09 release as well." Since that time Bangalore Choir have put their differences aside and are in talks to finish the CD that was rumored to be released in 2008.

 

David Reece's solo album will include Andy Susemihl on guitars, Jochen Fuenders on bass and Stefan Schwarzmann on drums.

Love Reece. Very underrated IMO. Can belt it with the best of 'em. Thanks for the heads up Wes.

 

Yeah I'm a big fan too and I'm glad that Gypsy Rose has pulled him out of retirment and hopefully we can get a new album out of him every year or so wether it be Gypsy Rose, Bangalore Choir or solo. :bowdown:

This has potential to be good. Looking forward to hearing the samples and then the disc.

'We were alive' sounds good - I'd pass on the other three. I just hope there's more like 'We were alive'. :)

I think there all good songs.

Wrong. :P

 

Seriously, they're all solid. Great production job and musicianship but poor hooks. imo.

Okay now that I have the actual disc I have to say I'm really loving this cd.

It takes a few spins as it's a grower but it's really good IMO.

There's two tracks that former Bangaloir Choir/Razormaid guitarist John Kirk co-wrote and played the solos on "The River" and "Yellow". Hang around after track 12 because there's a unlisted song called "Shadows"(I think) and it's the fastest song on here with almost like a Judas Priest vibe.

They should of listed that track and thrown "Yellow" off since it's the only realy weak track.

Again this does take a few spins to fully appreciate IMO but it's worth it. :headbanger:

I've had this available to spin for so long but I just can't get the inspiration to bother at the moment. Samples left me very uninterested. I will get there, just not in any hurry. :)

I liked the samples but I like it much more now that I have the actual cd which always seems to make a difference for me. Again though it took a few spins to appreciate.

I've played it through a couple times now. The first five tracks are great, with my favorite easily being "Fantasy Man". After that the album really loses a lot of steam unfortunately and fizzles out.

Some of my favs are in the middle and towards the end such as "Flesh and Blood", "The River", "We were Alive", "Queen of My Dreams", "Once in a Lifetime", "Rescue Me" and "I'll Remember You". :headbanger:

Just out of interest, is your copy the standard copy or the Jap copy as according to his website "(13. Chasing the Shadows - Bonus track for Asia/Japan)"?

Mine is the standard Metal Heaven release and that song is unlisted and is instead hidden after track 12 but I wish it would of been listed since it's a damn good tune. :headbanger:

Well, finally got around to hearing this last night and I have to admit I've been a bit harsh on it. This is actually a pretty good CD. I didn't expect it to blow me away and it certainly doesn't, but what it does do is deliver a good, rock solid hard rock experience. Most the songs seemed pretty good to me. So whilst it won't feature in any of my top 20 or so lists this year, I do think it's a good solid CD.

"Flesh and Blood" is the real standout for me and it's still a nice solid rock album IMO.

Probably won't make my top 10 but maybe my top 15 or 20.

    • New song 'Fans Of The Dark'.    
    • Shadows of Yesterday - Vinnie Moore
    • Sorry, that wasn't really what I meant. What I was really going for is that the songs on other albums seem to me to have more of a similar feel to them, like you can tell the songs for Freedom Rock were pretty much all written at the same time. I'm not saying that the songs on Force Majeure don't sound like H.E.A.T (even though I maintain it's not as good, based on the first few spins, as their previous efforts), but that they sound, to me, more "scatterbrained" than the selections from other records. That's not an easy thing to explain, but "direction" was the best word I could think of.    Again, I probably could explained my point better. I wasn't advocating for more guitars so much, but for more variety in the guitars we get. One of the best things for me about the first two H.E.A.T albums (less so for Address the Nation, but still there) was the subtle trade-offs between Dalone and Rivers and the solos that switched between them (good examples of this include the guitar work on "Late Night Lady," "Danger Road" and "Tonight," off the top of my head). Simply because Dalone and Rivers played different set ups and had some variance in tone, you could tell the difference between their playing (though admittedly there were times where Eric Rivers was completely underutilized and overshadowed). Because of the the combination of this record's production and the guitars being all Dave, you don't have as much of that, and that's what I was trying to convey.
    • Agree it reminds of earlier material, but I'm much less of a "Hang Tough" guy and much more of a "What A Shame" kind of guy.
    • Skid Row Nelson Steel Panther Harem Scarem WASP Van Hagar Saliva Joey Tempest Michael Sweet White Lion Mr. Big ... are the easy ones for me. Possibly Warrant as well come to think of it. Some other popular ones listed taht I don't agree with would be Slaughter - 2nd album pipped it GNR - always preferred either UYI albums Tuff - really only had 1 1/2 albums so don't count    
    • and the lyrics tick tock time to rock don't make you cringe?? if it was 1986 and I was 16 it might have been just passable but now, no. 
    • Another release that seems to have been completely overlooked here on HH... check out those vids for "Give It Up" and "Love Will Not Let You Down". I swear both tunes sound like something you'd hear from AdrianGale!  Compassion | Akiba Music (bandcamp.com)  
    • I might stone thrown at me, but hear some Scorpions.
    • "One Voice", which is a demo, is the only one I hear the tape "hiss" on...
    • Is that cassette tape hiss I hear at the start of the song? Is the whole album like that or only the demo tracks?
