Ok this is an interesting one, and certainly won't be for everyone, but I stumbled across this by accident and now I'm interested. They were formed in Sweden in 2007.

 

I'm not really sure how to describe them, other than to say they're a modern rock band with a few different styles on offer. Overall a bit too alternative sounding for me, though the song 'God Damn' is awesome which makes me wonder if they have any other good songs. If nothing else, try to check out the video for 'God Damn' here on this

 

MySpace Link

 

Does anyone know if this band is worth investigating further?

:lol: Not a good sign when the first related video on Youtube is a Backstreet Boys song. ;)

 

To be honest I kind of wish I hadn't seen the video as they're a bit dreggy, but that chorus is excellent. Very catchy. I was going to say it's good but not something I will actively pursue, but I don't know. I dig that chorus a lot. I think they could be a little too laid back overall, though.

Yeah, I've checked them out further and they're not my thing at all. But that song 'God Damn' is really great.

Cool. I'll just leave it at that too then. :)

"God Damn" is a killer track. The others take some getting used to but you can see the talent. And Geoff, didn't Jaded Heart do a killer remake of a Backstreet Boys song??

Yep, but I doubt the first link (usually meaning it sounds like the song in question) to a Jaded Heart song on Youtube would be a Backstreet Boys song... unless it was a video for that specific cover song. :)

    • Yep, this is a mighty fine album. Wasn't even going to match the debut, but it's very nice. A lot of fine, quality tunes, but if I had to pick a favourite I believe it'd be 'Nothing Left For Us.'   
    • Anyone check out their album released earlier this year? Simple Plan     -    Harder Than It Looks 1    .    Wake Me Up (When This Nightmare’s Over) 2    .    Ruin My Life (feat. Deryck Whibley) 3    .    The Antidote 4    .    Million Pictures of You 5    .    Anxiety 6    .    Congratulations 7    .    Iconic 8    .    Best Day of My Life 9    .    Slow Motion 10    .    Two If you liked them before you'll undoubtedly like this one as it's very much Simple Plan. I enjoy.  The clear stand-out for me is this teen anthem that 13 year old Georgia would crank in (one of) her bedroom(s) with tears in her eyes, but it also hits a spot on the other side of the equation. Pretty silly when it's such a teeny written anthem, but not every song that hits a spot needs to be orchestrated by Picasso, I guess. lol.   
    • Just bought it recently. Waiting for it to arrive to give it a good listen.
    • Bit of a creeper this album, but I dig. Just did a quick little read-up on these guys on wikipedia and seems like there's an interesting history. I knew them from way back when then they released two very solid but pretty unspectacular albums in 2005 and 2007, and then went silent and I kind of forgot about them. Seems like a bit happened in those years, including their lead vocalist passing in 2014 (R.I.P). Also, possibly of interest, Don Vedda played in this band from 2019-2020.  This new album has actually been released without a lead vocalist in the band, but a host of guest vocalists on every track. Amazingly, it flows very well. The style is more mellow, and I must say, preferable to me. As noted at the start, the songs are instantly nice, but really grow and they're some of my favourites of the year so far now.  Scary Kids Scaring Kids     -    Out of Light 1    .    Nightmare (feat. Spencer Charnas) 2    .    The Dark (feat. Noah Sebastian) 3    .    To the Unknown (feat. Vaines) 4    .    Until You Come Back (feat. Matt Macdonald) 5    .    Knock It All Down (feat. Lil Lotus) 6    .    New Morning (feat. Cove Reber) 7    .    Omens (feat. Spencer Chamberlain) 8    .    Black Hole (feat. Donovan Melero) 9    .    I Wanna Know (feat. Jesse Cash) 10    .    Escape from My Reality (feat. MOD SUN) 11    .    Endlessly Yours (feat. Tyler Posey, Phem) 12    .    For Atlas (feat. Michael Swank)            
    • Another one I'm sure I've gone on about in the past, but apparently no thread yet.  He doesn't seem to make a lot of music, but when he does it is awesome. Such as this... Paul Bartolome     -    Reflections, Pt.1 1    .    Fractures (feat. Dave Escamilla) 2    .    Anxiety (U Just Don't Get It) 3    .    While We're Still Young 4    .    Burn It Down (feat. David Bartolome) 5    .    Hypocrite   Easily one of the best songs of the year so far-       From the previously very awesome 'Screaming through the radio' EP-  
    • I know I've posted about this hombre several times before, but apparently not in his own thread. This must change as I find him to be so awesome but no one seems to acknowledge his existence. Not just here, but his youtube channel and reach seems to be so small. Crazy for someone who produces bone crunching quality on a madly consistent basis.  Eric Dalton     -    Playing Favorites (2022) 1    .    Calling Card 2    .    Oblivion 3    .    Head in the Clouds 4    .    X My Heart 5    .    Infection 6    .    My Demons 7    .    Solace 8    .    A Part of Me 9    .    Without You 10    .    Deception     Sorry, I know I've posted this before, but his youtube channel features all three of his (excellent) albums in full if interest permits. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb2I3-4_UvFnWWTcXBBLPYA  
    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive
