I've always liked Babylon Bombs, but their upcoming third album sounds like a freakin' monster!! Produced by the mighty Chris Laney, you can't go wrong...check out the samples:

Babylon's Burning Samples

 

Edit: I hope though that "Fade away" actually is a full-lenght song and not only a 5 seconds fade-out

I'm at work so i can't hear the samples yet, but in your opinion who would you compare them to?

I finde them quite hard to compare actually. Can you imagine a mixture between Aerosmith and Backyard Babies? That's probably as close as it gets, but the new one adds more power in the same vein as Chris Laney's "Pure" release!

Melodic, but sleazy Hardrock :headbanger:

I like sleazy hard rock but this band just doesn't do it for me for some reason. Even Laney's fingers on the dials still didn't cut it.

Yeah, pretty much agree with you mate. I don't dislike it and would pick it up for a couple of dollars, but I'm not sold by it at all. Then again, I don't like Aerosmith or Backyard Babies... :(

just pre-ordered the new album through distbox.com.

be one of the first 100 and get it signed, a free patch and a free cd single. (this has only gone up in the last day or two, so any order now should be in the first 100 i'd say)

 

they also have a few babylon bombs tshirts at half price, but sizes are limited.

 

and whilst you're there, pick up the mama kin single too.

I followed your advise :)

I also grabbed a Hanoi Rocks t-shirt + some Babylon Boms singels + the Mama Kin cd as well.

I have a demo cd somewhere at home from them which I really liked so I'm curious about the cd.

they seem like a great company to deal with. My first order was really fast and came with a free cd.

 

still waiting for my 2nd order (with the new cd). They have the Mama Kin album availalbe for pre-sale to but i didn't see this one when i placed my order.

 

i'll have to keep an eye on the site to see if they do any more shirts cheap.

I received this cd yesterday and this one is definately going to be in my Top5 of 2009! The first 10 tracks sound massive and are simply put nothing but stunning! "Goodbye Good Luck" and "Fade away" soundwise fall a bit short compared to these 10 tracks, but I think those 2 tracks are the ones that they recorded earlier on. They somehow feel more like bonus-tracks as there is a great ending in "Shine On", which somehow seems to mark the end of the "actual" record.

Great, great release and by far their best work to date!!

    • Sorry, that wasn't really what I meant. What I was really going for is that the songs on other albums seem to me to have more of a similar feel to them, like you can tell the songs for Freedom Rock were pretty much all written at the same time. I'm not saying that the songs on Force Majeure don't sound like H.E.A.T (even though I maintain it's not as good, based on the first few spins, as their previous efforts), but that they sound, to me, more "scatterbrained" than the selections from other records. That's not an easy thing to explain, but "direction" was the best word I could think of.    Again, I probably could explained my point better. I wasn't advocating for more guitars so much, but for more variety in the guitars we get. One of the best things for me about the first two H.E.A.T albums (less so for Address the Nation, but still there) was the subtle trade-offs between Dalone and Rivers and the solos that switched between them (good examples of this include the guitar work on "Late Night Lady," "Danger Road" and "Tonight," off the top of my head). Simply because Dalone and Rivers played different set ups and had some variance in tone, you could tell the difference between their playing (though admittedly there were times where Eric Rivers was completely underutilized and overshadowed). Because of the the combination of this record's production and the guitars being all Dave, you don't have as much of that, and that's what I was trying to convey.
    • Agree it reminds of earlier material, but I'm much less of a "Hang Tough" guy and much more of a "What A Shame" kind of guy.
    • Skid Row Nelson Steel Panther Harem Scarem WASP Van Hagar Saliva Joey Tempest Michael Sweet White Lion Mr. Big ... are the easy ones for me. Possibly Warrant as well come to think of it. Some other popular ones listed taht I don't agree with would be Slaughter - 2nd album pipped it GNR - always preferred either UYI albums Tuff - really only had 1 1/2 albums so don't count    
    • and the lyrics tick tock time to rock don't make you cringe?? if it was 1986 and I was 16 it might have been just passable but now, no. 
    • Another release that seems to have been completely overlooked here on HH... check out those vids for "Give It Up" and "Love Will Not Let You Down". I swear both tunes sound like something you'd hear from AdrianGale!  Compassion | Akiba Music (bandcamp.com)  
    • I might stone thrown at me, but hear some Scorpions.
    • "One Voice", which is a demo, is the only one I hear the tape "hiss" on...
    • Is that cassette tape hiss I hear at the start of the song? Is the whole album like that or only the demo tracks?
