Great new album... loving this new CD. The good news is it looks like they have two more before it - s/t and 'Dawn of my death'. The only issue could be that I may have already heard and dismissed 'Dawn of my death'? It sounds familiar.

 

Anyway, this new album is great stuff. Hard to describe too. They have a bit of the post-hardcore heavy sound going, but it's very harmless. The whole album is clean vocals with just a few little screams and some heavy music passages here and there. But generally it's just very melodic stuff, like a cross between Saosin and a less screamy A Day To Remember is how I'd describe them. Try to get a listen of 'Love is misery' which is just one of the best songs of the year so far, hands down.

Wow those aggressive vocal parts sound so out of place on this!

 

I just checked the myspace and all the samples on itunes - pretty much hated 'Rick vs Nick' so was very glad to hear that most of the first half of the cd is NOTHING like that track and is in fact quite excellent sounding - tracks 2-6 all sounded like winners to me.

 

A couple of aggressive sounding tunes on the second half....but some of those sounded good too.

 

Nice find mate....and some of those early tracks reminded me of Simple Plan to some degree....that sound is definitely better than the aggressive vox which sound a bit forced.

 

For info the debut sounds shit...i'd avoid that like the plague lol. 'Dawn Of My Death' sounded better, but the hooks werent as good as the new album. Might be worth checking out tho.

 

Cheers

Yeah mate, totally agree about the aggressive vocals. I literally had to check my Ipod about 4 times at the end of this album to check it was the same band. Because as you say, the early tracks (after the average opener) are all great, as you say, kind of like Simple Plan. Very commercial almost pop rock/punk kind of stuff... and then all of a sudden there are a few angry intros and you're all like wtf, where did this come from? That said, after a few spins I have to say that I'm enjoying all the tunes... even if the early more melodic ones are the easy pick. Did you hear 'Love is misery' yet? What a gem.

 

Thanks for the info on the other two. I'm going to do some searching because I'm so sure I've heard 'Dawn of my death'. I remember a band with a similar name to this and an album with a similar name to this, but I only had a pre-release with no song titles and stuff. I'm betting it was this actual band and that actual release. And if so, I recall that it was a good, very solid CD but as you say, may just have been lacking the killer hooks.

Cool release. I'm really liking it even with those aggressive parts. Geoff have you had a chance to check out their older albums? Just wondering if they are worth hunting down. Though from what Glen said about them I'm not all that keen to go and check them out.

Hey Justin. Yeah, sorry mate, forgot about the thread but I did check out the 'Dawn Of My Death' album. Pretty good stuff actually. As Glen says, not quite as memorable as the new album. But the songs are consistently solid, same stlye as the new album... just not quite the same quality of hooks. But I'm going to buy that one and the new one. Haven't heard the debut yet based on Glen's words, but might just give it a quick go at some point.

Cool thanks. I'll probable give 'Dawn of My Death' a go then as I'm really liking this one.

I've had their S/T for a while now and only got into a couple of songs, but I think that was more post hardcore-y. They seemed to have become more melodic, but there are plenty of other CDs I need to pick up first.

    • Looking forward to giving this a listen tonight. 
    • Ezzakly. I was having this conversation with my friend this weekend. It took us a while, but we're finally building up our football program. I believe that has a lot to do with the amount of immigrants we've had. They move to Canada and have no love for hockey; they wanna play football. Wish this had happened decades ago. My folks never let me play hockey, because it's so bloody expensive, but there wasn't a decent football program. 
    • I think I recall listening to one of their albums. Don't they have a Southern Rock/Country vibe? Or maybe I'm just reading into their name, which makes me think of Brad Paisley.

    • Photo credit: Tim Saccenti Metallica dropped an atomic bomb this morning, announcing the brand new album 72 Seasons and sharing the first single, “Lux Æterna”. “Lux Æterna” is old school thrash, picking right up where Hardwired… to Self-Destruct left off, only this time, guitarist Kirk Hammett was involved in the writing. 72 Seasons will be available April 14, 2023, via the band’s own Blackened Recordings. Produced by Greg Fidelman with founding members James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, and clocking in at over 77 minutes, the 12-track album is Metallica’s first full length collection of new material since 2016’s Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. Here’s the track listing for 72 Seasons: 01. 72 Seasons 02. Shadows Follow 03. Screaming Suicide 04. Sleepwalk My Life Away 05. You Must Burn! 06. Lux Æterna 07. Crown Of Barbed Wire 08. Chasing Light 09. If Darkness Had A Son 10. Too Far Gone? 11. Room Of Mirrors 12. Inamorata “72 seasons. The first 18 years of our lives that form our true or false selves,” said Hetfield of the album’s title. “The concept that we were told ‘who we are’ by our parents. A possible pigeonholing around what kind of personality we are. I think the most interesting part of this is the continued study of those core beliefs and how it affects our perception of the world today. Much of our adult experience is reenactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry.”   https://bloody-disgusting.com/music/3741721/metallica-returns-with-new-album-single-and-tour/
    • Yeah I wasn't expecting them to do much as it is their first World Cup since 86....at least they are competing hard.....now if they start making the World Cup on a regular basis then expectations will rise in the years to come....
    • New single. From Frontiers: Revolution Saints, the band centered around vocalist/drummer Deen Castronovo, have returned with a new line-up and a new single, 'Eagle Flight'. Castronovo is joined by new companions, bassist Jeff Pilson and guitarist Joel Hoekstra for Revolution Saints 2.0 and 'Eagle Flight' is their brand new musical statement announcing their arrival.    Revolution Saints was initially put together by Serafino Perugino, President and Head of A&R for Frontiers Records, to showcase the stunning voice of Deen Castronovo (Journey, Bad English, Hardline). Castronovo has always been a well respected drummer, but fans who took note of his background vocals over his career and who attended Journey shows and saw him take lead vocals on 'Mother, Father' during the band's set, came to realize he also had an amazing voice. Revolution Saints was, and always has been, a vehicle to show the world Deen's incredible singing talents.   For the first three Revolution Saints albums, "Revolution Saints", "Light In The Dark", and "Rise", Deen was joined by bassist/vocalist Jack Blades (Night Ranger) and guitarist Doug Aldrich (The Dead Daisies, ex-Whitesnake, DIO). Produced by Alessandro Del Vecchio, those three albums brought back the classic melodic rock style that thrilled and delighted legions of fans in the ‘80s and ‘90s and still does today! Inspiring, uplifting vocals, soaring melodies, and hooks for days is what you get in spades across those three albums.    While Revolution Saints MK I left an indelible mark on the melodic rock world, it was time for MK II to be born. Deen, having recently re-joined Journey, was feeling invigorated and inspired and ready to sing his ass off. Filling Blades and Aldrich's shoes would be no easy feat, but, mercifully, the exact right guys were found for the job. Joel Hoekstra is a current member of Whitesnake, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and Iconic, as well as having his own solo project, Joel Hoekstra's 13 and is an absolutely stunning guitar player, able to play multiple styles. Jeff Pilson, currently a member of Foreigner, Black Swan, and The End Machine, is also known for his time in Dokken and his more recent production work. Two stellar musicians to compliment Deen's singing and drumming is exactly what was needed for Revolution Saints 2.0 and that's exactly what we've got here.    Fans of Revolution Saints first three releases are going to find much to be delighted with here with the new, rejuvenated Rev Saints and their brand new single, 'Eagle Flight'!    A new studio album will be released in the first half of 2023.    Line-up:  Deen Castronovo: lead vocals, drums  Joel Hoekstra: guitars  Jeff Pilson: bass
