CDs that never see the light of day...


Recommended Posts

I find it strange how a band can go thru all the trouble of recording a disc, promote it, get it ready for release ...only for it to disappear into thin air. I know big names have this sort of issue due to labels, but for independant bands, I can't see what the hold up is.

 

A few examples:

 

Big Bang Babies - supposedly recorded a new disc about 2 years ago. Never heard of it since Perris delayed the release date.

 

StarStar -suposedly had another album in the bag years ago and they continually threaten to release it.

 

BOSS - Step On It, has been on the cards for acouple of years now, but still nothing has materialised.

 

Any others you can think of that have vanished before being released?

Savatage were supposed to release a live album called LIVE DEVASTATION on Metal Blade back in the mid 90s. Promo copies were distributed (and they go for some coin on eBay) but the album was never officially released for whatever reason.

I am sure the story of 2nd's and even 1st's not making the light of day is quite common in the very fickle music industry.

 

I can think of a few:

 

Tora Tora-Revolution Day

Best Kissers n The World-Yelow Brick Roadkill

New American Shame-"Untitled"

Assume it's all related to record labels and, given how long it takes to write/record an album, trends change & they focus their efforts elsewhere. Often it's for the best (ALIAS), but some goodies also slip through the net (the 3rd BAD ENGLISH album).

I remember a time when you could buy these for $20-25 on eBay all day long. They were not uncommon at all. The supply appears to have completely dried up... maybe I should sell mine. ;)

I've never actually seen a copy of it (in fact, I never even HEARD of it till I started prowling teh internetz in the early '00s, heh heh)... if I weren't terminally broke I'd make you an offer for it, Dan :(

 

*EDIT* Then again, maybe not... there's one on eBay right now with a Buy It Now of $155 :yikes:

PM me and I will forward it along. As it sits it is an EP, but it smokes! Also includes the track that did not make it onto the Heavy Metal 2k soundtrack.

 

There is also a full live show (DVD and CD) recorded in Texas from 2000 that I still need to snag from the boys.

    • So your belief system is as ludicrous as any I have heard described by someone who doesn't scrawl random thoughts in feces on the wall of an institution, yet you feel confident to dismiss the belief of billions of people as "fairy tales". Ignorance and arrogance walk hand in hand.  I am not here to convince any of you the Way. I believe everyone has the means and now makes their choice as per free will. Yet , isn't it amusing (well it is to me) how fundamentalist atheists are in their certainty. And I guess that is why you are so intolerant to other beliefs. There is no room for doubt in your minds. You feel you know all the answers and that there are no mysteries outside of your understanding. Though you are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant and then believing that is the entire knowledge of the elephant. Good luck with that. 
    • Yeah, I mean that's a fair call. This is what people originally were concerned about and it's gradually happened and not many people have really noticed or cared. Tracking everyone everywhere they go. (if you scan in  )
    • I think generally that this new "threat" is being taken with a grain of salt. I'd like to think so anyway. Regardless, by the time we all say ENOUGH, the new powers put in place by ALL Governments and new "digital ID's" and tracking apps will be well established.  Well played, the powers that be, well played. 
    • New video for ”Lost In The Night”.    
    • I had a couple of videos recommended on youtube today so I looked at them. One was an interview with the doctor in South Africa who "discovered" and diagnosed the new variant, and she spent the entire interview saying how mild it was, and that the patients hadn't even actually shown any symptoms with the variant. The other video I watched was a mainstream, panic-endorsed media interview with two "top doctors" who both said that if this variant is as mild as suggested it is actually better to let it spread and become the dominant strain of covid.  The problem is, that around these two things, as soon as the hosts/reporters start talking, they're back in full panic mode, asking if borders should be shut, countries locked and doing their best and hardest to make sure that panic and hysteria is returned as soon as humanly possible.  So I want to know when a law can be passed where people in public positions that spread panic can be shot on the spot. That's my ideal wish, but in the real world of 2021, when are these panic merchants going to be stood down from their positions? It seems like this new variant is absolutely nothing at all that anyone anywhere should be worried about, and if you believe the "top doctors," spreading it should be embraced. So how does this whole panic hysteria storm get whipped up in the space of a few days? And why aren't people being held accountable for whipping up this madness and stopping actual life from ever continuing again?   For anyone interested, the two clips I saw were these-  
    • Can't you see that you're lost without him?      
    • If somebody could stop covid for me, that would be great.
    • Yeah, def HammerFall vibes in the chorus. And, yeah, they kinda seemed outta place. I don't necessarily love the song. It was okay. Hopefully there are better tracks on the album, otherwise, to quote Gleonard, "Utter waste." ;}
    • The band press release says they've changed their name to Rain City. The article says they've changed their name to Rain City. But it's actually Rain City Drive. Really seems like everyone was on board. ;}
    • That HammerFall-ish gang vocal chant thing in the chorus seems a bit out of place to me. Otherwise, sounds decent enough.
