Yeah, great CD, just bought a copy. Cool guys to deal with too...Was gonna make a post about this band, but it's cool that someone beat me to it. Their greatest hits disc is also very good with the original singer, "Stigge," on lead vocals (R.I.P.). Hope these guys get a label deal, they deserve it IMO.....Jeff.

CD arrived within 1 week from Sweden to USA! Don't hesitate to buy directly from these guys, their service is outstanding and the CD is fantastic Scandi MHR IMHO.....Jeff.

Ended up getting this for a good price at Musicbuymail and indeed, I agree. Nice, solid CD with some real good tunes on it.

So dudes, has anyone here actually heard their 2nd disc, 'Disconnected?' I heard it for the first time today and I can say I'm pretty sure it'll surprise the shit out of anyone who hears it. I recall the debut being a good one, but this is excellent. Gigantic improvement in song writing and the songs sounded brilliant on first spin. Even after one spin I'd have to say it is by miles the most over-looked album of 2012 so far. Get it in your ears.

Yeah not overlooked it's a pretty good album. My one/two criticisms would be it is a bit one paced and is probably missing a real killer tune. I'd say 75-80%

Before I check this out, is this a modern sounding one?

 

no

 

Definitely not.

 

Yeah, Glen I might agree with you about the one real standout missing, but based on that one listen alone it sounded like there were a lot of really consistently good songs on it. I may have got a little over-excited with my top 10 comment, but we'll see how the 2nd spin goes. I was really impressed first time around.

I listened to 'Run Run Run' last night, really disliked it and couldn't be bothered to listen to any other tracks. I will do so at some point though, so the jury's still out.

Some of it is a bit plodding and one paced IMO, not the greatest disc this year

I actually saw that video on their website but purposely didn't post it here because it is a really average song. That'd be about the weakest on the CD, imo. Most of it's much better than that. I've only spun it once so far and really need more spins to form a proper opinion, but I did like the first spin.

Trust me to pick the runt of the litter! I'll investigate some others tonight.

'Run Run Run' is a decent AC/DC-ish track I guess. It ain't bad at all for me, well perhaps 'I Had Enough' and 'First Time Around' might be weaker. Overall, a 75% from last year, probably 80% or between that to me, but nice to buy if the price is right

    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive      
    • Welcome, album of the year? Love this project with vigour. I snuck 'Saturday' on the playlist I put on with the kids in the car, lol. Can't wait to hear any of the songs I haven't already heard and showered in love from this. 
    • Did anyone notice these guys released another new album?  As expected, it's pretty weak and more proof of their solid decline.  HOWEVER!  There is actually a good song on it. It's only one, but I kind of clapped and cheered when I heard this. I used to love these guys so much, and still love the albums I always loved from these guys but it's been some barren years. It was good to hear them do what they used to do with great ease.      
    • Couple of okay songs, but otherwise as expected above. No surprises, exactly what you'd expect from these guys in 2022.     
    • Not every song is a hit, but another pretty decent one mini-album. I like some of the gear on this one.  Villain of the Story     -    Divided 1    .    Never Again 2    .    Jester 3    .    Karma 4    .    Under My Skin 5    .    Losing Control 6    .    Wrong 7    .    Don't Go 8    .    Divided    
    • Not sure if folk know, but they got back together and released an EP this year. Anberlin     -    Silverline 1    .    Two Graves 2    .    Nothing Lost 3    .    Body Language 4    .    Asking 5    .    Circles It's not amazing, but I do really like this song from it-  
    • Not an amazing album, but pretty solid with a couple of very nice tunes-     They have a very comprehensive youtube channel for anyone unsure and wanting to give everything a listen- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYECJVZLOQebjAuj_HMKLjg  
    • Credit must be given where it's due, and I do like the effort put into this one. To be frank, I thought the first 5 songs were pretty shit. All the while I was listening, wondering what became of these guys. The most frustrating song of those first few is 'Eternal.' I wrote in my little ratings thing that it almost sounds to me like these guys are trying to sound bad because, otherwise, this is a pretty good song. But it's just done poorly.  Anyway, I want to be fair to these guys and I have to say, that from song 6 the mood in the room seems to lift and they start to give it a fair crack. They drop the mopey post-grunge blandom and have a crack at some decent melodic type of rock. Spoiler alert - I don't actually think there's a keeper track on the album, but holy shit they get close.  'Temples,' 'Alive,' 'Heaven Knows' and 'Someone's watching over me' are all, four in a row, good, strong songs. And then 'Love Is The Only Place' hits and I was taken aback. Unfortunately, they're not the band they used to be and I am 100% convinced they couldn't hit the heights of the debut even if they did everything possible to try... but goodness do they get close with this track. A bit of polish and finesse and this one wouldn't be a bad stab at what they did so well on their debut.  Sadly, the album's worst song follows in 'The Undertaker' - what a piece of shit, lol. Really grates me because this is the discussion point I've had with christians that aggravates me the most, and it's in a song, so naturally I hate it. And then 'Afterlife' isn't amazing, but pretty decent. Before the album finishes on a high, with one of the best songs on the album with a nice hook - 'Strange New World.' So overall, like I say, credit where it's due. After the first few songs I was close to closing up shop and calling this a pass, but thankfully, they took me on a ride and it was pretty cool. They're a dim shadow of the band they used to be, to be totally fair, but I like that they showed a bit of fight with this album. Better than expected.
