Ever wonder what Heavy Harmonies looked like in the early days?

The archive page from right after the Halls of Glam morphed into Heavy Harmonies. :)

 

A few of the links on the page are archived & work as well; have fun! :drink:

Really interesting to see what the site was like over 10 years back!! The site's come a long way since then :headbanger:

 

I guess this would be an apt time to congratulate Dan and everyone else involved in managing and developing the site...and we don't say this often enough, but great work, guys!!! :beerbang:

 

On a side note: Any chances of the lyrics section being incorporated in the future?

No. Next question?

 

 

:lol:

 

Seriously though, there are more legal/rights headaches with lyrics than with any other aspect of music sites (save downloads). The law may have changed (I'll be honest, I've not followed up on the issue), but at one point lyric sites and lyric search engines were being shut down left and right, and I wanted nothing to do with that fiasco...

I found Heavy Harmonies one night while I was taking night classes back around the year 2000-2001, can't remember the exact date. I was killing time between a few classes in the library and there was a very small article about Heavy Harmonies in Rolling Stone magazine. I went to a computer, typed in the URL and was hooked ever since. This was also about the same time I discovered Ebay and bought the first of many CDs on Ebay. It was also around the same time I discovered Napster and actually met T-Bone there years before the messageboard even existed. I can't believe that was almost a decade ago!

That was actually the year 2000. I had just got my 1st computer and it had the dreaded Windows ME and a MASSIVE 40gb hard drive :rolleyes:

So Dan, really, did you start this whole thing? how come if you did it credits you as being member #2? you should post all the screen names with their member number next to it! see who we lost along the way, ive been here since 2004, I stumbled onto HH while I was trying to jerk off, I typed in Spread Eagle, and HH came up, and the rest they say is history!

When did I first find this place?

 

Hmm... I discovered ebay in March of 1999 after a discussion with PJ. I was buiying CD's from him for several months before then when he was on the METAL RING or something like that. Seems to me I found Heavy Harmonies about the same time. I don't think I actually joined until quite a few years later, however.

 

Man, that's a long time ago.

    • Atlantis is amazing 👏  Was my album of that year 
    • A lot to like on this release but also some stuff just too light for me. 
    • What a honey Gudrun Laos was and what a Killer track this is!    
    • I didn't say I didn't like it. It's a good album, but I guess after years of reading folks praise for it I built it up to be something more than it actually was. 
    • We already know you're a leftist idiot! Known all around these parts!
    • How are you guys letting horrible songs get into your head???
    • I'm surprised you didn't like it. That's a shame. 
    • It's a mystery alright, although how the band could okay this for release is an even bigger mystery. Also find it intresting that all of the reviews I've read have failed to mention the bizarre mixing and mastering of this record, which kinda makes you question their credibility as rock reviewers.   This I don't agree with at all. The thing that makes H.E.A.T the awesome band that they are is that they've never compromised with their sound or felt the urge to follow trends. We all know that they've could have gone the Dynazty route, making hard 'n' heavy records, that would probably have made them an even bigger and more popular band with the masses. Of course that's not what the fans want, and they know that. We want H.E.A.T to sound like H.E.A.T - and I think they've done a damn fine job of that on this record. I don't mind a bit of experimentation, like on Demon Eyes, as long as it's the exception and a temporarily deviation from the trademark sound. As for bangers, I do think there are some here, but they're all ruined to some degree by the poor mixing job. No, they don't reach the awesomeness of let's say "Dangerous Ground" or "Rock Your Body" from the last album, but stuff like "Nationwide", "Not For Sale", "Hold Your Fire" and "Wings Of An Aeroplane" come pretty damn close. Being the AOR fanatic I am, my main criticism with this band is always that I want them to be more AOR, like on the first 2-3 records. If you're looking for a direction, then this record is clearly a distinctive step away from that. They want to be pure melodic hard rock and not AOR, I think it's pretty clear. Truthfully it's been evident from "Tearing Down The Walls" and onward, but Force Majeure makes it even more evident that no change in that direction is very probable.   If there's anything that this album doesn't lack, it's guitars. The guitars are so loud in the mix that Kenny´s vocals are drowning in them. The album is unlistenable with good headphones, you have to play it through speakers or earphones to make it somewhat listenable. Other weird little things about this record: CD is released in Europe as a f*cking digipak for some reason. Who's beind this strange and unnecessary decision, the band or the label? Also, no writing credits. You have to go to Discogs or Spotify to find out who wrote these tunes.
