Check out 'Ghost' and 'Let It Go' for some top notch modern rock.

 

Very nice indeed......another top ten contender.....I can see this being a real grower and a keeper.

I have to say that my fav off the album is 'My Little Secret'..........unfortunately not on myspace.

 

Blissful....that chorus is just perfection.

I first heard 'Let It Go' when I got the 'Transformers: Revenge Of The Falllen' CD. Not bad. Will check out the others.

I think you will die when you hear 'My Little Secret'.....I love that one.

 

There are a few grungier moments on the album but it never loses its melody.

I don't know about you sometimes Geoff. I started a thread about Cavo weeks ago and you said they sounded like a bad version of Finger Eleven. You are a fickle person indeed. Below should be the link to remind you of your first impression. I guess it must mean more if Glen recommends them :whistle:

Haha. Sorry mate, judging by that thread I only heard a snippet of the one song and obviously wasn't taken. Maybe I jumped the gun on that one? :lol: 'Champagne' sounds great on the CD. :anon:

 

And yeah, like Glen says he's wrong most the time too. ;) And I didn't think Hotspur were bad at all, just not that great.

I don't know about Cavo, been on rotation for a couple of weeks now, but there's something missing. A couple or three great tracks but too many mid tempo for me. Getting more play is Black Water Rising, heavy but with a Kings X/Galactic Cowboys touch that I'm really enjoying.

I've only spun it that one time so far and the tracks I went wild about above were my faves. Looking forward to more spins as I think I might like this one quite a bit.

Didn't blow me away on the first listen, but definitely way better than a lot of other new stuff out there. Gotta play it while I'm driving around so i can pay more attention to it. I can see why people really dig it though.

I listened to it again today - gets better and better.....there are a couple of fillers towards the end, but the first 7 tracks are all great IMO.

 

'Ghost' and 'My Little Secret' are stunning.

The only other track I donwloaded besides "Champagne" was "Ghost". I thought the album would be a littler stronger overall than it was.

'Ghost' is amazingly close to being my favourite song of the year. Love it.

 

that's second on this album for me behind 'My Little Secret'

 

Was listening to this today...still a very good album and will make my top 10 for the time being [just not sure where].

Yeah, very strong throughout. I hope Chris can forgive me for my premature evacuation of words on these guys. :)

Am a bit behind on this stuff, but have played this a few times and really like it. Fuck me though, that first song is a heap of shit. "Champagne" is it called? AWFUL. Like Hinder. The rest is killer though, and "Ghost" is a truly KILLER song.

Very good find, this one!! "Ghost" and "Let It Go" are simply stunning!! "My Little Secret" is a notch above them, though. Very nice. Hope they get some radio play now.

    • SHIRAZ LANE – Forgotten Shades Of Life (2022) AUGUST 11, 2022   various sources internet Finnish rockers SHIRAZ LANE consisting of lead vocalist Hannes Kett, lead guitarist Jani Laine, rhythm guitarist Miki Kalske, bassist Joel Alex and drummer Ana Willman will be releasing their third full-length studio album ”Forgotten Shades of Life” on August 12, 2022. The new CD combines the melodic feel and heaviness from previous albums with a fresh versatile approach from head-banging hard rock riffing to power ballads and classic rock’n’roll groove. “Back to Life“ opens the album with a bullet of a tune – from the opening riffs you begin to experience the amazing talent that is Shiraz Lane. Thumping along Hannes demonstrates his simply stunning vocal range. The song powers along with subtle drop-offs in pace bringing back memories of Shark Island‘s “Paris Calling“. “Maniac Dance“: provides a slightly funkier vibe, full of those great riffs, and catchy chorus this is gonna be a crowd favourite. The track heads towards a positively blues crescendo, demonstrating their ability in mixing it up but still coming back with a final blast of the infectious chorus. “Scream“: not a new song to many but great to see it on the track listing. This song represents the demons many of us face with mental health issues. The top end of Hannes‘s vocal range is incredible in this catchy song, sorry ANTHEM… Expect this to appear on many live set lists, and that is great news for the fans. “Forgotten Shades of Life“: the title track of the album brings us some respite with a slightly slower pace, but no less intensity. Almost a Led Zep vibe at times, but once again Shiraz pull it out the bag with this ‘lighter’, or ‘mobile phone’, in the air offering. “Beat of Your Heart“: is a full-on 80’s hard rock ballad. Powerful lyrics, great chorus, almost dare I say Queen-esque vocal support, they have absolutely nailed this killer ballad. “Animal“: picks up the pace again and powers us into something faster and heavier. You can’t help but bang your head to this absolute belter of a track. Dare I say there are almost early Metallica traits when Jani brings his axe to the party. “Disconnect from the Matrix“ is another hard thumping track, once again mixing up the pace as the track progresses. This is something we’ve not heard from Shiraz before, but as the whole album is proving to be full of new ideas, it just proves that Shiraz are not afraid to break new ground, whilst keeping that catchy, thought-provoking, chorus and thumping riffs. “Haunted House“ launches us into Southern rock sound and vibe to it. The riffs are less apparent there is a lighter feel with this tune, a little more commercial sounding to what has come before, but nonetheless the song is still catchy. “Who’s Watching“ opens with saxophones… What? I’m now transported into a blues club as this 2-minute epilogue to “Haunted House” brings us back to earth and allows us time to take a breath. Good job as it’s getting harder to breathe. “Letter to Yourself“ is another ballad that wouldn’t go amiss on MTV back in the ’80s. Hannes‘s voice is once again demonstrated to its full in this song proving him to have one of the most incredible and unique voices and vocal ranges in the current rock scene. “Imagination“: concludes the album and provides a 6-minute roller-coaster of varying paces and styles. All held together in true big chorus Shiraz style. This album is another massive step forward for Shiraz Lane in their bid to stamp their authority on the current rock scene. Utilizing Hannes‘s unique vocals to the max this album offers fantastic riffs, fantastic tunes, unbelievably catchy choruses and demonstrates that Shiraz Lane continue to progress as a band. This is a great album from a band which doesn’t repeat themselves – but still 100% Shiraz Lane, and that is a very good thing. Highly Recommended   Tracklist:   01 – Back to Life 02 – Maniac Dance 03 – Scream 04 – Forgotten Shades of Life 05 – Beat of Your Heart 06 – Animal 07 – Disconnect from the Matrix 08 – Haunted House 09 – Who’s Watching? 10 – Letter to Yourself 11 – Imagination lead vocals – Hannes Kett lead guitar – Jani Laine rhythm guitar – Miki Kalske bass – Joel Alex drums – Ana Willman   Pre order: www.amazon.com/Forgotten-Shades-Life-Shiraz-Lane/dp/B0B5LYLCHZ
    • Men who do men? Cody, Geoff, and you.
    • Trust me, I am the biggest of Tesla fans. Watched their DVD 1,000 times. They were one of the best bands out there. I even loved Bust A Nut, considered their worst disc. But this is rubbish that I'm embarrassed to call Tesla. Same as the last few albums. Simplicity and the Def Leppard album were just so bad. They miss Tommy Skeoch I think.
    • Again, why is this in the Flamefest sub-thread? Who's angry with this? 
    • Oh God I just noticed your favorite band in your bio, please don't kill me!!!
    • Maybe you'll have better luck than me with it. Seriously one of the most disappointing albums for me that I can remember.  These guys had been on such a roll and an upward trajectory for me.  This has sent them crashing back down.  The songs just feel like they're all over the place. I had read somewhere that one reason they left Frontiers was because they wanted more creative control.  If this is what that looks like, it was a big mistake IMO.      
    • And there it is... but could have been worse!
    • Yesterday Lies In the Flames - Ten.
