Recommended Posts

according to sources close to the band what Jules handed out @ Rocklahoma were artworkless cdrs whilst at the cd launch only a very few were fortunate enough to score a cdr with artwork & in my case I picked up 4.

saw these guys over the weekend and they were brillaint. even better than last time i saw them.

 

probably the only problem was that they were on last and I don't think hit the stage until 12.30am. I think a few folks had started to drift off by then which thinned the crowd.

 

they had more of their eps to give out at this gig too. (sorry guys, i didn't chase up any spares...)

 

took a few photos and videos so will try to get some of these up in the coming days.

Further to Glam_Junkie's note, the adelaide show was White Widdow's first gig with a new drummer.

 

correct. i wonder why they changed, or whether the other drummer is still with deadthings? any ideas?

I was lucky enough to grab an EP which were being handed out last night, but you can download the three songs off the EP here:

Man, these guys were absolutely awesome last night! These three amazing songs on the EP are not flukes, that's for sure. Their whole set was immaculate pieces of melodic rock. I only pray they don't wind up like Teargas with some of the best melodic rock to ever come out of Australia remaining unrecorded. I'm really looking forward to this debut asap!!!

Wow - can't believe bands like this are still coming out in 2009. Love the pomp keyboards. Remind me of Storyteller. Promising stuff, would definitely pick up a CD (think one is due in 2010).

 

Well, it ought to go back mainstream. People are not buying records anymore because what's sold sucks, plain and simple. The 00's standard of Hip Pop: soulless R&B with Pop music sensibilities and Rap music beats is obsolete and has been proven dysfunctional. Tuneless nonsense. AOR has the right package, I've been promoting around a bit and people love this stuff. It's scammers who have been selling junk for gold, in an attempt to fill their own wallets while failing to deliver. Reinvention to this, it's people's choice. Existing record companies will have to change their ways, new record companies will see the light of day. Let Frontiers Records grow bigger so they'll secure a position in the market, I heard they recently opened a US office. This sounds like the real deal BTW.

Please don't be pulling my leg, cousin. Because if you're right and this is true, based on the full set I heard from these guys a few months ago, this will crack the top 5 this year... if that's right.

Someone corrected my thread regarding Chris Laney... apparently he's not producing, but he is mixing/mastering

    • I know, I know. We all know the answer but still I have to ask: So what happened to the "Cessation of Touring Contract" by the Crue?
    • Whoah... much better than I expected before clicking on them. Reminds me vocally of a lighter version of Lizzy Borden crossed with Rob Moratti. I'm going to have to track this one down.
    • from various internet sources: TYGERS OF PAN TANG will release their new album, “Ritual”, next Friday, while this Japanese edition including a bonus track appeared today. This is the band’s second recording by the current Tygers lineup, recorded with the help of renowned Søren Andersen, most recently known for his role as Glenn Hughes’s guitarist. Mastering done by Harry Hess (Harem Scarem). Tygers Of Pan Tang is a legendary band with some legendary albums, but I’m dare to say “Ritual” is one of their best. There’s a classic melodic hard rock feel all over the record, with some irresistible riffing, powerful grooves and catchy choruses. The mastermind here is original member, guitarist Robb Weir. The band’s current phase proves as formidable as its heyday, with longtime drummer Craig Ellis, vocalist Jacopo Meille, bassist Gavin Gray and guitarist Micky Crystal. “Ritual” wastes no time in stampeding the listener with the bursting “Worlds Apart,” one of the heaviest tunes on the album. Fair warning though – the straight forward chorus can stick in your mind for weeks, like a modern day version of “Gangland.” This isn’t the only instance on “Ritual,” this is an album chock full of hook laden rockers. “Destiny” slides in and the ride continues with a soulful voice. The pounding percussion is back and the riff are melodic, precise. The lyrics are thoughtful, and well written, and do tell a story, unlike many of these so-called hits of today in those other genres that just repeat over and over again. Slipping into the triple-twist of the steam train you’re on, comes, “Rescue Me“. There’s a simple riff and hook that becomes infectious, and still has you in its clutches. The vocals, clear and understandable, will have you singing along before you realize you’re doing it. The track that will “Raise Some Hell” is definitely the hidden gem on the record. This has got to be a live track used to get the crowd worked into a frenzy. Fast-paced, and rockin’ as hell. Screaming vocals, a rocket train paced guitar, and drums to match. If this song doesn’t get you off your backside and have your fist-pounding, then shut off the record and go back to your BackStreet Boys, because you’re listening to the wrong music! As this roller coaster continues, you reach the point where you just don’t wanna get off yet, and hope the rest is just as exciting. Luckily, you would be right. “Spoils Of War” might be the most melodic song of the bunch, but this midtempo still rocks hard and the solo kills. Masterfully played track. After a few more thrills, and twists, you know the ride is gaining its way to the final gate, but don’t take the safety bar off just yet. “The Art Of Noise” has yet another trick that will have you raising your fists into the air, and trying to catch your breath once again. Hang on, because you still have to “Sail On” until the end. Maybe not the most exciting part of this ride, but still an effective end. Clear concise vocals and equally as good playing from the rest of the Tygers are ever-present here. So sit back, and enjoy this last bit of this “Ritual” and to hell with keeping your arms and legs inside the ride at all times. “Ritual” may be the bast sounding Tygers album since 1981’s Spellbound, but don’t take me wrong, it’s still a fresh new album that stands on its own. You couldn’t ask for a more beautifully produced album. Presenting a top notch mix and crystal clear recording, the use of modern technology pays homage to the band’s legacy without succumbing to a thin lifeless sound. And songwriting is just as strong, as each musician performance. One of the best classic rock / traditional hard / melodic albums of the year. Raise those fists, and enjoy. Highly Recommended Tracklist: 01 – Worlds Apart 02 – Destiny 03 – Rescue Me 04 – Raise Some Hell 05 – Spoils of War 06 – White Lines 07 – Words Cut Like Knives 08 – Damn You! 09 – Love Will Find a Way 10 – Art of Noise 11 – Sail On JAPAN BONUS TRACK: 12 – Don’t Touch Me There (2019 Version) Robb Weir – Guitars Craig Ellis – Drums Jack Meille – Vocals Gavin Gray – Bass Micky Crystal – Guitars   BUY IT www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/MICP-11527    
    • Well, I can't wait for it.
    • I won't as long as my mom is taking me down there! I know they're great still- this will be my first concert though 😋
    • Don't miss it. They're still amazing live. 
    • Is he really more and more in demand? Or is it simply signing with Frontiers means he is producing?
    • https://meramecmusictheatre.tix.com/Event.aspx?EventCode=1154903 Me & my mom might go together! 
    • Heard of Kane only from the band LSD and I have no clue who the other person is.
    • Oh boy! I'll try to contain my excitement!
