Mr Scary CDs available directly from the band


Recommended Posts

So it says in the liner notes that this is a New Zealand band. Could this be the best hard rock band to ever come out of new Zealand???

 

Also interesting that one of the past members was also in Love N' Rebellion.

 

Got my copy of the CD today and will have a listen later on.

 

 

great point but Mr Scary would be up against the likes of Scarf, Knightshade for that accolade.. heck I'd even place the mighty push push & the nod up there.

:beerbang:

Ditto re: the other positive compliments.......Mr. Martens has been doing a very nice job serving as point man for the sale and distribution of this CD.....BTW, it really rocks! This is the type of hard rock that I'd love to see on the shelves at retail stores vs. most of the modern rock bands (some exceptions, of course). It's a bit of a pity IMO that more people, at least for right now, won't be able to enjoy this band's music.....Jeff.

Not many other comments on the actual music here, but doods, this is really good stuff. I don't have to pretend to like it because they're half Aussie or anything... I just genuinely think this is a very good disc. Well produced too, for such an obscure release. The guy's got a good voice and the music is just good time, stereo playing in the old man's Datsun 1800B - or whatever you're driving at the time - type of stuff, good 80's rock songs. Basically, it's a good album and well worth the money. :) Nice one, Ray!

I like the samples but I'm having a hard time justifying the $25 USD price tag..... :unsure:

Got my copy today and I have to agree! Fun, happy time music. :) Everything Put Together is a fantastic song and it's been stuck in my head all day.

Yeah, totally backed on that song. That song is as infectious as anything I've heard this year. Usually, to avoid overkill, I'll skip a song the 2nd time if it's on the album twice but I can't turn this one off when it comes around for round 2 at the end of the disc. Love it.

Cool! I only asked coz it would cost arm and leg to make 100 replicated cds, if any pressing plants are offering such low quantity at all.

 

Actually it's only about $200 to duplicate 100 cd's with a 4 page booklet.

 

The plant I use has tons of different options and I can even do as low as a 50 cd run. Of course ,most of the time I do a 500 run now which are replicated and cost around $1.35 per disc with a 4 pager , $1.50 for 6 pager and about $1.63 for an 8-pager.

 

Some people ask why I don't just replicate everything...well , it's difficult justifying doing a 500-1000 units of a 4 or 5 song EP. I don't mind paying 50 cents more per disc for a short run.

 

Sorry , didn't mean to hijack the thread... MR SCARY SOUNDS REALLY GOOD!

    • Sounds good to me. He hit some cool notes I wasn't expecting. 
    • No mention of the music video? Or are you still fapping your way through it? ;}
    • I saw them in 2003 at a festival and I thought they were very good. 
    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to present the fourth installment of Magnus Karlsson's Free Fall, "Hunt The Flame". Once again, the multi-talented Swedish guitarist/songwriter/producer has assembled a killer cast of incredible lead vocalists to lend their talents to his musical vision.  For “Hunt The Flame”, Magnus once again enlisted some of the strongest melodic singers in metal and hard rock. Stunning performances are provided, in order of appearance, courtesy of Alexander Strandell (Art Nation, Crowne), Jakob Samuel (The Poodles), James Durbin (Durbin, Cleanbreak), Kristian Fyhr (Seventh Crystal, Ginevra), James Robledo (Sinner's Blood), Michael Eriksen (Circus Maximus), Girish Pradhan (Girish And The Chronicles), Raphael Mendes (Icon Of Sin), Terje Haroy (Pryamaze, Mantric Momentum), Jake E (Cyhra), and Antti Railion (Celesty, Diecell, The Wildfire).Rounding out the line-up on the album is Anders Kollerfors on drums with Magnus Karlsson handling all other instrumentation on this stunning slab of melodic metal.  Magnus Karlsson is well known as the mastermind behind several productions associated with Frontiers Music Srl, including the successful initial Allen/Lande (Russell Allen and Jorn Lande)trilogy and the recent spin-off, Allen/Olzon (Russell Allen and Anette Olzon), which has released two albums thus far. Additionally, releases by Starbreaker (with Tony Harnell), Bob Catley, and Kiske/Somerville have been guided by his talented hand. In 2008, he joined German heavy metal icons Primal Fear and with them has toured the world and recorded several successful albums which charted in multiple countries around the globe. In 2013, he launched his solo project “Free Fall” which was warmly received by the numerous fans of the Swedish mastermind and showcased Magnus’ songwriting and production skills with lead vocals provided by a varied cast of some of the finest singers of the genre on each release.  Tracklisting: 1.

    • Ok, I get it now. Classic style band/song names like Nightfire, becomes Nitefire nowadays.
    • That's what annoys me about Grand Design song titles: rock being spelt as 'rawk,' but also 'tuff,' 'luv,' 'nite,' etc.
    • Now we're talking! A great, fully understandable band name and cool cover art to match it.
    • As some sort of artist myself maybe I shouldn't be commenting but why do they misspell rock to rawk? Is that in fashion now or?
