'Sup folks, new guy here.

Uhmm...right, well, here it goes; I'm well into my 20s, I enjoy (almost) all sorts of rock, metal and AOR music... and polka. Some of my favorite better-known bands include Queensryche, Fates Warning, Crimson Glory, Rush, Triumph, Saga, Pantera, Anthrax, Survivor, Living Colour, Kansas etc.

I stumbled onto this site thanks to my neverending search for some obscure shit, man, and hey, what do you know, you guys have a forum too. Might as well start troll... that is, I mean, might as well start posting.

Rock on :headbanger:

Hey Roy, let's get nude and reckless! Welcome aboard and don't be afraid to eat the nachos by the door... I made them myself.

Hello Roy. I love Crimson Glory, good to see another fan. Transcendence has to be one of the best metal albums of all time.

 

You might regret finding out about obscure stuff on here though, checking out other members' recommendations is costing me a fortune!

Awesome! You're familiar with a band called Drive, right? Very similar to CG, especially in the vocal department.

Don't know Drive at all. Do I need to? Are the songs as good as CG?

 

I notice that the first album is very expensive, so based on experience I'm guessing that is the better one. Found the second, 'Diablero', cheap though - any good?

Yeah, the first album is definitely the better one. Not QUITE as good as CG, but almost there.

Diablero is more hardrockish, pretty good, with one amazing song. I'd go for it, if it's really cheap.

 

Here are some songs from the s/t for you to check out:

Listened to a few tracks on Youtube now and I make you right - the debut is much better. The tracks I played from the second album didn't really do anything for me, but I like the stuff from the debut.

Greeting & salutations Roy...welcome to the board of all knowing (or some like to think so :P ). Speaking of Drive, I found the first cd used late last year & was really impressed...Also Rush & Queensryche are 2 of my faves...

    • New song 'Fans Of The Dark'.    
    • Shadows of Yesterday - Vinnie Moore
    • 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?
