Crown of Thorns? :lol: Crown of Thorns wish. HAHA! I really dig the sound of these guys. That single, 'Takin' over' is awesome! It proves my theory that no band-fronting vocalist, ever, should record a music video without a microphone. :lol: The other songs on myspace are pretty cool too and I look forward to hearing this disc. Nice find mate.

Didnt you think the vocals were a bit reminiscent of COT in that song.....and a bit of the chorus reminded me of their sound.

 

Good stuff in any case.

Yeah, I can hear a bit of COT in the vocals... even a bit of Juno Roxus too, especially in the chorus of 'Takin' over'.

Checked out all the sound samples. Some very nice tunes from what I could tell so far. A couple of them cut out before the chorus, but it still sounds like there's plenty on there to be a keeper. Cool energetic modern hard rock with catchy choruses. Me likes! I wonder if Best Buy will be getting this in or if I'll have to order it online.

Anyone know if this is getting a hard copy release? Both Itunes and Amazon only have it as a mp3 download. Aaargh.

Ok, for those interested, about the only place I can find a hard copy of this cd is on hmv.com. It says it's in stock so I just ordered a copy for myself. I've never ordered through hmv before so I have no idea about their customer service or shipping times yet. Hopefully it comes quick.

Well, they just e-mailed me and said the cd is on the way. Since I just ordered it like three hours ago, I'm gonna say that's pretty good service so far. I'll definitely post my final verdict after I get it and give it a good listen.

I picked this up in HMV at lunchtime for a tenner, so very much looking forward to spinning this one later :headbanger:

 

Wow, the first listen wasnt so great actually....wanted some more immediate hooks.

 

But on second listen this thing rocks hard and could be a real grower. Some of those solos are real nice too. :headbanger:

I finally got this in the mail the other day. A few nice gems on here. It could have been a tad stronger over-all but there were numerous stand out tracks. My favorites would have to be "On Fire", "In The Fading Light", "You've Got it Comin", and "Make My Day". This things rocks pretty good though.

It gets better with every listen! The 2 ballads in particular are growers...i love both those now. But 'Youve Got It Comin' is awesome.

 

V nice hard modern rock disc.

I got a song on the latest Metal Hammer free disc, and I will skip this - sorry all a bit generic for my tastes. Is kinda like the Burn Halo but with better vocals.

So I actually got a free copy of this, and I honestly absolutely hate it. Generic cliched garbage. Better than Burn Halo, but so is every single other album released this year so far. Terrible. Anyone who wants it let me know.

snap it up guys...great album, with some decent GnR influences (not that crap off CD).

 

Tim.....shame on you.

 

'Generic' is a very easy word to use........like people who labelled 'Outloud' as generic. Well if generic means it kicks your arse to kingdom come, then im obviously a fan of generic rock :tumbsup:

Yep generic is a very easy word to use. It means copying a standard formula that's been used a zillion times before (and much better). This is not really modern rock at all, it's just boring and cliched 80's-sounding hard rock, and sounding like GnR is not a good thing IMO.

 

Stuff like Nural and Skillet pisses all over this.

    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/      
    • I thought of this one today for some reason.  I'm sure everyone here is familiar with "Talking Heads - Psycho Killer" from '77, a very strange track in it's own right, but does anyone here remember the 1980 parody track "Psycho Chicken" by "The Fools"?      
    • That's more like it mate. Your best one so far. Keep it up.
