Warp Drive - Something To Believe In

Recommended Posts

Mark Woerpel is a friend of mine, so I figured I'd help him out with a little promotion for this CD. This release rocks from beginning to end! Check the samples on Amazon and see for yourself!

 

After working on getting this together all summer, Mark Woerpel of Warp Drive/Blackfoot has finally released Warp Drive's 2nd UNRELEASED CD on iTunes, Napster, Amazon and Rhapsody. The working title for the CD when they were originally recording it in the early 90's was "Speed Of Life". The album was shelved when Mark joined Blackfoot. All these years later, Mark dug them out and reworked and updated them a little for a release. Unfortunately, he doesn't want to do pressed CD's, so online digital download is all that will be available for this. If you liked their first release called Gimme Gimme from 1989, you'll love this new one as well.

 

The NEW title for this CD is "Something To Believe In".

This is fantastic news but if it isnt available on CD then I wont be getting this.

has Mark considered hooking up with any of the labels represented on this site for a CD pressing?

He's not interested in having them pressed... I can say that it's harder rock than the first CD and even if they're MP3's, it's worth the download. I listened to this all the way to my bar tonight and all the way back. It's full of crunchy guitars, solos and foot tapping rhythms. I think it's better than the first to be honest!

I'm still working on the CD Pressing thing with him... I'd like to see a real CD too, and I personally think it would sell well. The first CD was pretty good, but I have to say that I do really like this 2nd one even better. The songs flow well and are easy to get in to. I've given Mark a few record companies that would love this type of release. Once pressed, there's plenty of resources on the internet for promotion and sales as well as his regular gigs with Common Ground where he could sell them at shows.

Damn, now this is good! Thanks Ty for the samples. I'd recommend this to anyone (even if it isn't on CD). Download it and burn it yourself! Sounds like it could have been recorded back in the 80's.

Not bad. Never thought too much of the debut and not really sold by all these tunes, but it sounds okay.

    • Love it!  Very new-breed DRN... I don't normally dig that type of thing from my favorite 80's bands, but I'm good with it here.  Once again, Daiker is all over this one. Look at Mel slide into everyone of those notes on bass.  Dude is SOOOOOOOOOOOO damn good.  Such a shame he's virtually unknown outside Portland, Oregon (and a those of you in-the-know for this type of music).
    • The guitar-work is great.  I think it's a pretty decent cover. Look, I've been a HUGE fan since 1983, so you'll be hard-pressed to get me to say anything negative about this band.  Those of you who weren't around to see them on the Pyromania and Hysteria tours... God I feel badly for you.  "Top of their game" is a HUGE understatement.  The Beatles of my era for sure.
    • Devilment - The Great And Secret Show
    • Only point I was looking to make was that I agreed with the prior post above which had mentioned being frustrated that the guys hadn't put out many new releases over the last 15 years and that it may be beneficial to work with a better producer again.  Your follow up post pointed to the time between their earlier releases being similar and I responded to explain how I felt that was different, no worries though, we just see things differently
    • Inglorious indicated a few months ago that they had finished recording the songs for their third album, hinted as being heavier than their prior releases, which should be released via Frontiers in February 2019.  The first song/video from the upcoming album is out now https://www.planetrock.com/news/rock-news/inglorious-say-heavier-third-album-is-done-and-reveal-release-date/    
    • From 84 (the year after Pyromania) until 99 they released 4 studio albums, yes, but from 2000 until 2015 they released 3 studio albums, not 2. Not really that much difference. They also released the covers album, so that was pretty much the same level of output. They still continue to tour regularly and had issues such as Campbells cancer scare and recovery from that, plus the musical landscape is vastly different to that first time scale you mention.   Really not sure what your point is here?      
    • Uh...it doesn't sound bad.  Not as raw as the original and I think that hurts this version. But...if you're gonna do a cover, get the lyrics right.  "It's the eye of the tiger, it's the dream of the fight?"  Uh... no.
    • Damn good album...Has moved up my list also. I think as of now my top 4 are probably: Kissin' Dynamite Shiraz Lane Treat Maverick I'm not even bothering listing #5 as I'm saving a spot in the top 5 for Midnite City....Almost expecting that it'll slot in at either #1 or #2. And probably a good chance Nordic Union pushes the list also. Another release I'm really digging is Hearts On Fire.  Not officially out yet but have been listening to it for a month or so from doing a premium pre order.  Not quite making my top 5 but probably in the 6-8 range at the moment.
    • Been listening to this band a lot lately....Went back to the debut as I never spent much time with that album and sort of rediscovering it....damn good. And still like the new one a lot also....Not quite as melodic as the first couple albums but still lots of interesting hooks. Really the only album that does little for me is Into the Wild Life.  There's a few good tunes...I dig I Am The Fire....But really not much that keeps my interest on that one.
