I saw the video on MR.com and I have to say... and no doubt I will be hated and feared from this point forward... but it's more of the same overproduced Scandinavian AOR masquerading as rock. Don't get me wrong, it's very well done and the guys are talented, but this, and Brother Firetribe, and H.E.A.T., etc. just doesn't float my boat. I guess I just need more grit and more teeth in my music... :(

 

I do still like Wig Wam though, those guys have something different amid all the production and gloss IMHO.

You are not alone these guys are really cool . I emailed the band way back in July on it then there was a single out not the one with the video another single it is on there my space page . I asked them if they had a CD out only thing Oli said was itunes ..........But from what I have read lately the release is going to be early 2010 for it . Crazy the single has been out since July and finally releasing the CD 6-8 months later .

I do agree with you somewhat. I never got into HEAT and didn't understand the Europe comparisons that much and I do have one BT disc and it's good and all but I much prefer Pekka's other band Leverage for the heavy progressive but still melodic style. I do love Wig Wam to. Sure it's cheesy but they rock it up a little more than the other bands mentioned. I dig the Reckless Love single okay but would want to hear more of the disc before deciding to buy or not.

Wow Pete...you of all people????? I guess that's why there are so many different styles of music.....we all have different tastes!!! I really liked this band's sound. I think those background vocals and the melody infused in the song is what brought me over.

 

I know you are heavy into guitar oriented hard rock, and that's cool too. Maybe that's what turned you off on this band?????

 

I am one of those that really get turned on by melodic hard rock with keys and loads of harmony melody, but, I am also pretty diversified too. I can get just as turned on by Power Metal or some light weight AOR too. Charlie....thanks for the heads up on this one!!

 

And no......we don't hate you Pete.......I like your CDs too!!!! :cheer:

Haha, thanks man, I appreciate that. I can't put my finger on it, but I guess to me a lot of that stuff sounds a little forced, like they came out deciding specifically to follow that formula and as a result it doesn't sound heartfelt to me. And again like I said, it's top quality all the way from a talent/production standpoint, it just doesn't click for me, when I go light I prefer a Place Vendome or a Khymera style I guess... :)

 

BTW right now I'm on my first spin of Marc Ferreira's solo disc, I daresay if you liked Goodbye Thrill it reminds me a lot of that (yeah big surprise, right? ;) ), but the guitars are up a bit in the mix. I'm likin' it so far. :tumbsup:

Oh man, sorry dudes but I have to disagree 100 times over and then double it! This song just made my night. Tackiest filmclip ever, but the song made me damage my pants with huge spurts of sem... fun. I had fun in my pants. Seriously, I love that SOOOO much. I don't know if it's just the "bomb" in the title but it reminds me of 'Love bomb baby' in it's over the top infectious nature - which is what I love. This has immediately gone in the top 5 most anticipated releases of 2010 for me. :)

:lol:

 

Agree with Geoff (although my pants remained dry), but this is seriously catchy stuff and fits Olliver Twisted so much better than Crashdiet did. Check out "One more Time" as well on the band's Myspace-page! It is a bit more "rock" than Beautiful Bomb...

This one in particular is pretty much fun, straight ahead rock n roll. It's not really tooooo overproduced. I've heard worse. For the most part I agree with your assessment of Scandi-rock, Pete. I never got into it because it seems soooo overproduced that the instruments get lost and all you hear is keys.

I'vs watched the video about 5 times and listen to both tracks about as often. This stuff gets me excited, although not excited as Geoff, since I never released any so called ''fun'' over hearing the tracks.

First of all I really dig the feel good sound of this all. I also pretty much appreciate the carefree message and all, but I'm afraid this formula is only gonna prove the prejudical set by today's industry against this stuff. The sound is great, but the lyrics are what they tag cheesy, and the image is 50/50. They look somewhat cool, but also like girls. People will have a problem with that. Especially the lead singer with the lip gloss riding his bike to the beach.

 

IMO we need more bands like Winger etc. Real men with the hard rock image having a more serious looking Pop Metal outing. The long hair, the cool image, but not too much makup and all that. They're fun, rocking and cool, but they possess the essence of both a good lyric and tune. It's more marketable that way.

 

On a side note I see the H.E.A.T. and Europe comparisons weren't understood somewhere. H.E.A.T. is more AOR, Europe has more Hard Rock guitar featured in their music at places, but the melodies and structures of the songs are there.

Loving this band so far, 'Beautiful Bomb' especialy is a terrific song. Definitely will be keeping a big eye open on these guys.

As good as Beautiful Bomb is I think this one is even better.

 

Another great song... but I have to admit I still prefer 'Babylon Bomb' - that one is just sensational. I really like 'One more time' but my only tiny picky wish was that they hadn't used the big backing vocals on every single line in the chorus... just left one or two with the lead vocal alone. :) But that's just me being picky as the song is awesome anyway.

    • You brought the man out of me, so many times, easily. 
    • One of my all-time favorite Christian rock-ballads.
    • I don't mind at all. That was the only way I could make you say, "Oh God!" without it being blasphemy. 
    • For the record, I would totally check out a "Do you want to Bang your Librarian?" thread. Also, when I first glanced at this post, I thought it read, "Do you want to Bang your Libertarian?" and I immediately thought, "No way in hell does anybody here want to bang Leykis." 
    • Agree...that sounds better. Still potential here and Erik makes it listenable.    This first single could've been pretty good with a different structured chorus so hopefully other tunes are a bit better. Still not sure its going to be melodic/catchy enough for my tastes which is generally my problem with this  genre.
    • My apologies, cob, but didn't Cody say "the only thing Atheists all have in common is we do not subscribe to the myth of the deity, god or higher power, of any kind, this is it, then we are worm food, not all Atheists subscribe to the same meaning or philosophy, we don't all believe in the same science, or anything, I personally feel as though..." Sorry if I misread, but that doesn't really sound like a group that are fundamentalist in their certainty. In fact, none of that really sounded to me how you describe it.  What does intrigue me, though, is that you acknowledge that we are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant... yet religious folk believe that there's a god out there somewhere and his only concern is whether this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant follows the gospel or not? And not only this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant, but every single other speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant that has ever existed? Of the entire universe throughout the entirety of time, all this god really cares about is whether each speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is following the gospel. Because if not, that speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is sure as heck going to hell. Sounds like the type of being I'd like to devote my single human life to.  Sorry dudes, like I say, I'm not an atheist (that I know of), and I'm sure as heck not a religious man. What do you call someone who is just honest enough to admit that I don't have a clue how we started, or why we are, or what will happen when we're dead? And I also believe that no one alive now, or whom has lived before us, has these answers either. Nor will they ever have them. No matter how steadfast someone is in their belief of whatever they believe, no one will ever be able to answer, with 100% certainty, those questions. 
    • And a small but important  update. Had an MRI scan two weeks back and just before I went in for a weeks chemo. The day I was discharged the doctor who discharged me gave me the results of the MRI scan and confirmed my feelings that the brain cancer had reduced in size, so everything it seems is going to plan.
    • I'd like to think so too, but I don't think it is. But I am always weary of what's being reported in Australian media. Are we just seeing everything from the hysterical, moronic and blown out of proportion version that the Aussie media feeds us? Or are there actually things happening outside of this country that are as hysterically panic driven as they are here? From the few other things I've heard, globally, it does seem that this variant has earned it's own little slice of worldwide panic, so I guess we'll see. This Panic First, Ask Questions Later mentality that the world has adopted is honestly an (even further) embarrassment to humanity. If I didn't have children I would confess that the time has certainly well and truly come for the human race to be nuked and made extinct. I ponder how much I hated humans in 2019. It took 40 years to build up that level of hatred. I am not even kidding to say that those 40 years of built up hatred has probably doubled, if not tripled or even quadrupled in the space of the two years since. What I think of what has become of the human race in the space of two years has no words left to describe it.
