The best without a doubt is the smokin' version by Talisman from the Genisis album of :bowdown: Bad Company's classic, Run With The Pack....

The three bonus tracks off the Jekyll And Hyde - Heavenly Creatures album, Best Of Me, Justify and I'll Find A Way are also great tracks.

"A Love and a Fiction" - Pretty Maids(off the jap version of Spooked)

Couldn't have said it better myself. Best bonus track EVER.

 

Also, 'Save one' from Story of the Year's 'Black swan' is essential.

 

And I envy those bastards who got the bonus track on Steelhouse Lane's 'Slave to the new world'.

In The Arms by Bon Jovi is considered a bonus track since it appears on the Australian & Japanese only pressings of the Keep The Faith CD & what a corker of a track this is!!!

:beerbang:

 

The 2 bonus tracks on Empire - Cry appearing on the Japanese pressings really lift that cd to another level.

 

The bonus track on the Japanese presing of Hardline's Double Eclipse is another standout!

As Tim(2) has already mentioned a few times the track "I will be loving you" by Planet 3 is only available on the Japan release "A Heart from the big Machine" and not on their standard release "Music from the Planet".

Definitely agree with the Pretty Maids track!

 

some others I would add -

 

On the modern side of things -

 

All the bonus tracks off 'The Black Swan' (Story Of The Year) are awesome....Geoff mentioned 'Save One' which is nice ballad, but to be honest 'Virus', 'Turn Up The Radio' and 'The Truth Will Set You Free' all completely murder that track.

 

The bonus tracks off Hinder's 'Take It To The Limit' are all awesome too and arguably as good as anything on the album......i'd mention 'One Night Stand' and 'Live For Today'

 

On the same note most of Daughtry's bonus tracks attaching to this year's 'Leave This Town' are basically better than anything on the actual album....namely 'Traffic Light' and 'One Last Chance' ...both stunning modern rock.

 

The bonus tracks attaching to Shinedown's 'The Sound Of Madness' are all great too...esp 'The Energy'.

 

The bonus track on Disciple's 'Scars Remain' is great too...'No End At All'

 

& now on the MHR front -

 

The bonus tracks off Gotthard's Lipservice are essential 'Cant Stop' & 'Nobody Home' are well worth tracking down

 

The Jap bonus track on Journey's 'Trial By Fire' called 'I Can See It In Your Eyes' is nothing short of stunning and is easily better than any track on the album!

 

Brother Firetribe's bonus track cover versions of 'Mighty Wings' & 'Hungry For Heaven' are both excellent

 

Millenium's bonus track on 'Hourglass' is a great cover version of 'Jane'

 

HEAT's re-issue of their debut includes the excellent '1,000 miles'

 

(& I still want to hear that Steelhouse Lane song :crying: )

 

Cheers

Can you foreigners confirm this? Is this true? Do most you guys not have 'In these arms' on your version of 'Keep the faith'? If so, that is criminal. Easily the best song on the disc.

In fact, from my understanding the Jap versions two bonus tracks were Save a prayer (which was on the Euro version as well) and Starting all over again (which was a single b-side and later on the box set).

In these arms was on all releases.

It was even released as a single!

Yep, that's what I thought. I have the video with all the singles (including that) which was obviously made in the US. Sometimes I think Andre's world is separate to ours. ;)

STARTIN ALL OVER AGAIN is what I meant!!! lol

Ah... really? That's another killer song. I was reading a Bon Jovi quote book the other day and I saw that even back then in the day Jon hated 'Women in love' and 'A little bit of soul' and he wished they'd been left off the album. That made me appreciate his good taste back in 1993.

W.A.S.P.'s bonus tracks are always great

 

Truth. Some of my faves are "Flesh & Fire" (from the "9.5-N.A.S.T.Y." single), their cover of Jethro Tull's "Locomotive Breath" (B-side to the MEAN MAN single) and "Phantoms in the Mirror" (from the CHAINSAW CHARLIE CD single)

Wow, two killer tracks there. Two of my faves on the disc, in fact. Does the Aussie version of 'Keep the faith' ever fetch anything decent on ebay?

    • idk guys, I think you can only polish a turd so much. It's definitely a great attempt and as whiplash1972 says, there have been a lot of such projects since, what, 2007ish? But IMO St. Anger has never been a bad album only because of the snare drum, or the lack of guitar solos, or the long songs. It's a bad album because it's an album full of bad songs. Metallica is supposed to be badass! This is not that! Listen to Invisible Kid or Purify and tell me what's even a little cool about those songs. The whole thing is just so whiny and cringey, definitely a product of its era which was the worst for metal as a genre.
    • Didn’t realise Def Leppard were a synthwave band, ‘cause these guys sound like ‘Hysteria’ era Def Leppard more than anything else I can think of. 😉 I was wondering the other day how many people miss out on good music because it is not under a label they desire. Very sad. 
    • Cold Blooded Bitch - Crown of Thorns
    • Don't forget there is a time different time zone from Australia to America.
    • Madison Talk of the Town Masquerade Roulette Might be missing.  
    • Nuff said. It's comments like these that are so helpful. Saved me 30 seconds clicking a YouTube like 😀
    • From Lions Pride Music: In the vibrant era of late ’80s and early ’90s, when Hard Rock ruled the charts and iconic bands were born in the lively streets of L.A., a lesser-known yet equally formidable force emerged from the heart of Germany – Wiesbaden to be precise. It was in this cultural backdrop that five talented musicians converged, forming a band that would redefine Melodic Hard Rock. Thus, SHEELA was born. Their creative hub was a basement rehearsal space in an old street house, which would later evolve into Markus Teske’s legendary BAZEMENT Studio. This studio would become the birthplace of several successful albums for bands like U.D.O., Vanden Plas, Dominci, The New Roses, and more. In 1995, SHEELA released their debut album, ”BURNED DOWN,” meticulously crafted and recorded at the BAZEMENT Studio. The album, showcasing a blend of powerful vocals, compelling guitar lines, and intricate arrangements, achieved instant success in Japan. Renowned magazines like BURRN and ROCK HARD recognized their potential, with the former awarding the album 87 points. ”BURNED DOWN” opens with the captivating ”LONG TIME,” a track featuring a memorable guitar line in the chorus. The album progresses through the anthemic ”READY” and the soulful ”HOLDIN’ ON,” leaving an indelible mark on the Hard Rock scene of the time. The success of the album paved the way for a tour and, later in 1995, personnel changes in the band.

The success of the album paved the way for a tour and, later in 1995, personnel changes in the band. Their second album, ”CHANGES,” dropped in 1997, again making waves in Japan before conquering European audiences during a tour with Canadian superstars SAGA. In the subsequent years, SHEELA shared stages with legendary acts like FATES WARNING, won the KARLSBERG CHALLENGE, and made a mark in the USA by performing at the STURGIS RALLY alongside bands like STYX and REO SPEEDWAGON. The journey continued with their third album, ”STRAIGHT HEARTED ONES” (2001), featuring guest musician Michael Sadler of SAGA. SHEELA toured extensively, opening for heavyweights like NAZARETH, MANFRED MAN, POISON, and even sharing the stage with Germany’s most successful Rockband – THE SCORPIONS. However, like any great rock story, SHEELA encountered lineup changes, and in 2002, Markus Teske bid farewell, leaving Christian Moser as the sole remaining member of the original lineup. Despite the changes, SHEELA’s impact endured, with discussions and online buzz surrounding their music even in 2018. Described as ”One of Germany’s secrets,” the timeless classics ”LONG TIME” and ”BURNED DOWN” continue to resonate with fans, prompting a resurgence in interest. In 2023, SHEELA signed a landmark deal with Lions Pride Music, a renowned record label based in Denmark. This collaboration brought forth a reissue of their debut album ”Burned Down,” remixed, remastered, and adorned with a new artwork. This worldwide release on CD and Digital platforms reintroduced the timeless magic of SHEELA to a global audience, reaffirming their status as pioneers of Melodic Hard Rock. SHEELA’s journey, marked by musical evolution, international recognition, and an enduring legacy, is a testament to the band’s commitment to creating timeless Hard Rock that transcends eras. As we look back at the album that started it all, ”BURNED DOWN,” SHEELA’s legacy lives on, leaving an indelible mark on the history of German rock. Sheela is: Wolfgang Ilsy Terne – Lead Vocals & Guitars Christian Moser – Guitars & Backing Vocals Markus Teske – Keyboards & Backing Vocals Tony Spagone – Bass & Backing Vocals Jojo Nimtz – Drums & Backing Vocals Special Guests: Patricia Loesch – Backing Vocals Martin Hofmann – Backing Vocals Robert Henrich – Harp Stefan Djokic – Slide Guitar Recorded in 1995 @ Bazement Studios, Wiesbaden, Germany 1995.

    • Edvard Munch's favourite band.
    • Debut album 'Portraits' out May 31.   From Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group:   The band was founded a decade ago under the name ”Alex Mari & The Lovers”, with the aim of writing original material. Meanwhile, in order to create good chemistry between the members, the group began playing together on several live shows, performing cover songs of legendary international artists just like Queen, Toto, Police and AC/DC.   After few line-up changes, the band was finalized with three members: Alex Mari  (Michele Luppi Band, Barock Project, Ophiura, plus guest appearances as studio backing vocalist with Rhapsody of Fire) on vocals, Gianluca Pisana on drums and backing vocals, and Sebastiano Barbirato on guitar and backing vocals. For their debut album, they established their new identity with the name, Night Pleasure Hotel.   The first studio chapter of this very promising trio offers a perfect slice of classic American AOR, reminiscent of Survivor (Bickler era), Foreigner, Prism and Toto. The album features contributions from talented special guest stars –  Michele Luppi (Whitesnake), Luca Zabbini (Barock Project, PFM), Paolo Caridi (Ellefson-Soto, Reb Beach, Geoff Tate, Krell), Gianluca Tagliavini (PFM), Roberto Galli (Michele Luppi’s Heaven, Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire) and Iarin Munari (Red Canzian, Roberto Vecchioni, Paolo Vallesi).   Night Pleasure Hotel are sure to become one of the best newcomers of the current melodic rock scene, thanks to their infectious sound, mixed and mastered by Roberto Priori (Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire, Raintimes, StreetLore).   The release of ”Portraits” is scheduled for May 31, 2024 via Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group. The CD booklet features introductory liner notes written by Samuele Mannini (Melodicrock.it), while cover art and CD graphics have been developed by Aeglos Art (Wheels Of Fire, Platens, StreetLore, Raintimes, Room Experience, Nightblaze).    The first single of the album, ”Just This Once”, will be launched with an official video on March 28, 2024.   Tracklist:   01. Niko 02. Just This Once 03. We Say Goodbye 04. Walking Through The Horizon 05. You And I 06. Sweet Melodies Of Rain 07. Shivers 08. What I Feel 09. Julia  10. Suddenly 11. For You 12.
