You guys have gone completely mad. But ultimately that other disc is hardly Modern Rock anyway so is a different genre entirely, and I highly doubt that there will be a better Modern Rock disc than this in 2010 (there sure as hell wasn't in 2009)....

 

Tim mate, I agree with you 100%. I still doubt though that SOTY is gonna have a chance of impacting on the potential top 10 MHR come year end.

Yeah, I agree that the year in MHR is shaping up to be something special, possibly the best since around 1990-1992 and there will be no place for this... but I'm also hoping for something special in modern rock to come along and really blow me away. There are a lot of bands I haven't heard from in a while like A Change of Pace and Just Surrender for example, which I hope provide something great. So far Lifehouse is the 2nd best modern rock CD I've heard this year and whilst it's a surprisingly good CD, it's not a good sign. :lol:

 

Just Surrender have a new song on their myspace although its not that great to be honest.

 

Isnt Hinder due a newie this year??

 

Stop it.

 

well mate, since we've established that you dislike 80's hard rock its hardly surprising you dont like Hinder :whistle:

 

I think this is what I tried to explain at the time. The only connection between Hinder and Modern Rock is the production, otherwise they're not much different to a bunch of other 80's Hard Rock bands IMO. Which is why I never liked them!

Thanks for the tip. Not the best song they ever recorded, but I like the new Just Surrender song. Sounds like it could have come right off 'If these streets could talk'.

 

As for Hinder, I hope dearly they do have a new CD due this year! I guess it's already that time, hey? Man I'd love that.

After lovin' to death The Black Swan and really liking the new one The Constant, I decided to pick up Page Avenue a few days ago for 4$ at a pawn shop. FUCK ME!!!! These guys were always fuckin' brilliant. Hands down the best modern band of the decade. I really need to get In The Wake Of Determnation.

I like "In the Wake..." much more than "Page Avenue" - it's more aggressive. To be honest I never really play "Page Avenue" all that much...

I still think 'In the wake of determination' is their best album.

Also the killer duo of 'March Of The Dead' and 'Pay Your Enemy' are awesome and arguably as heavy as they have been. Totally kick arse!

My fave tune on that disc is the last one: "'Is This My Fate' he asked them?". KILLER song IMO and right up there with "One Threw Ate" as their best 'heavy' tune, with a monster breakdown...

    • KINGOFTHEHILL – ‘II’ (Second unreleased album FnA Records release) [2023] *Exclusive* BY VARIOUS SOURCES -- FEBRUARY 7, 2023     In 1990, KINGOFTHEHILL (KOTH) signed a major label record deal with SBK Records (a subsidiary of EMI Music). Scoring popular MTV Music videos for “I Do U” and “If I Say” and continuous touring throughout 1991 with White Lion, Trixter, Lynch Mob, Steelheart, Extreme, etc, KOTH were digging their heels in deep climbing the burgeoning walls of the life of Rock-n-Roll stars. Fast forward 2023, KOTH have reunited with all original members, lead singer Frankie Muriel, Jimmy Griffin (Guitar), Vito Bono (Drums), and George Postos (Bass), and inked a deal with FnA Records to release two albums. One of ’em, titled “II” contains tracks recorded 1991-92 that were slated to be on the band’s sophomore release, which never did happen as the music landscape changed almost overnight. KINGOFTHEHILL frontman Frankie Muriel says ““We are so excited for KINGOFTHEHILL to join the FnA Records family and finally have the opportunity to give the fans a chance to hear these long-bootlegged albums – after all these years the way they were intended to be; and to revisit the vault and release unheard material”. This St. Louis, Missouri-based four-piece hard rock outfit began life on the local club circuit as a covers band – Initially known as Broken Toyz, the band gradually introduced original material into their set, until the demand for their own songs allowed them to drop the cover versions entirely. They signed a recording contract in 1990, and, having adopted the name KingOfTheHill, recorded their self-titled debut with Bang Tango producer Howard Benson. The album mixed party metal in the grand Van Halen style with funk influences, while also touching on AOR, with vocal harmonies that echoed Bon Jovi. The opening single, ‘I Do U’, as well as the second single “If I Say”, had major rotation on MTV and crossed over to the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. With major backing from their record label the band spent much of 1991 on the road touring with White Lion, Trixter, Lynch Mob and Steelheart in the USA, and received a rapturous reception as Extreme’s guests on their autumn UK tour. This, the band’s first live work outside their own country, served to sharpen their performing abilities, with the charismatic Muriel becoming the visual focus of the band, drawing comparisons to both David Lee Roth and Prince, not least for his multiple costume changes throughout each show. (contributors get the album today) Tracklist: 01 – Hands on You 02 – Save it for Yourself 03 – Coming Up 04 – Better U 05 – Tonite 06 – Lisa 07 – What Kind of Man 08 – What U See (Is What U Get) 09 – Mama 10 – Just A Little Bit 11 – This Love is Free Frankie Muriel (Vocals) Jimmy Griffin (Guitar) Vito Bono (Drums) George Postos (Bass)   BUY fnarecords.net/kingofthehill.html
    • Yeah, can’t say it crossed my mind at any point of the exercise. 
    • Tonight Belongs to the Young - Pretty Boy Floyd
    • Media Machine - Rob Rock.
    • Good thing ADV might not involve.
    • Sorry Karpet, I do that when I'm bored. It's just for fun. On facebook you can sometimes see comments like that. 
    • Van Halen-5150 is one of the last releases that comes to mind when thinking 1985-1995.
