If you're not a Kal Swan fan, probably time to look away! For me, he is a great and highly original singer with a tragically small discography. Just wondering what other Kal fans make of the albums he has done? These are the ones I know of with him on lead vocals, I haven't heard them all and I'm sure others will be in the same boat, hence the "don't know" option.

 

I don't rate 'Dangerous Attraction' very highly, but love 'Trouble in Angel City' and 'Rough Justice'. 'Blood' was okay. That's it from me, fingers crossed Mr Swan pops up with new output in the near future.

I like everything he's done but Tytan is my least fav.

 

The BMR debut was pure Lion and I think it might of been meant to be the 3rd Lion release.

'Blood' is excellent as they added some more ingredients such as some Zeppelin infulence in and the last BMR was my intro to the band so it holds a special place for me. I know most fans felt like 'Opium for the Masses' was a let down and they added some Grungy sounds in but I still love it. Both Lion discs are Hard Rock perfection to these ears as is the 'Powerlove' EP. Kal is a great vocalist and is missed in the scene as far as I'm concerned.

Whoa! Surprised about Tytan; I think it is a huge and fantastic album! A bit heavier than Lion, it's definitely a metal album, but some great tunes. 'Don't Play Their Way' is metal genius, 'Sadman', 'Far Side Of Destiny' are also great, just to name a few.

 

We can agree on one thing though - come back Kal!

I have never heard Ttain, so couldn't vote there. Of the rest, I voted like this:

 

Lion - Dangerous Attraction

8/10 ; great disc... would probably rank around mid 80's out of 100.

 

Lion - Trouble In Angel City

8/10 ; great disc... would probably rank around low 80's out of 100.

 

Bad Moon Rising - Bad Moon Rising

8/10 ; great disc... would probably rank around low 80's out of 100, similar mark to 'Dangerous Attraction'.

 

Bad Moon Rising - Blood

7/10 ; pretty decent disc, but not as many great tunes.

 

Bad Moon Rising - Opium For The Masses

6/10 ; but would probably rank about 56/100... not really a fan at all.

Lion - Dangerous Attraction 8/10

Lion - Trouble In Angel City 10/10

BMR - S/T 8/10

BMR - Blood 6/10

 

What a relief (for my sanity) that someone actually agrees with one of my opinions. I think Angel City is a lot better than Attraction, it's an incredible album with some of my favourite rock songs of all time. Hope this doesn't reflect badly on All Nights Reserved! ;)

 

Found this on WikiAnswers, which was quite interesting. Apologies if it has been posted on this site before:

 

"Dunno what he's up to now, but what I can tell you is that Kal's real name is Norman - Norm to his mates - and whilst at Nuneaton Tech. doing A level Art circa '79/'80 he was buddies with my mates Grog and Kletz. What I find interesting is that no web site featuring Kal ( which was spelled "Kkal" at one time, if I remember rightly ) points out that he was, albeit briefly, a member of Black Sabbath. I imagine he's moved back home to Tamworth, or, if he's got any sense at all, he's moved as far away from it as possible."

 

Incidentally, I can't find anything at all on what Kal is up to these days, or whether he plans to get back into rock music. Gutted.

    • Yeah why not. I have read stories how Soviets used to sing Communist praise songs as they got shipped off to gulags, never believing their government and the police that served the government could ever turn against them. Let's all sit around a campfire as our rights are removed and all our movements are enthusiastically policed. We the sheeple.
    • Aw, so sorry to offend you with three magic words that seem to be a big trigger for you. I hope you never to listen to Public Enemy as you will break down and cry. No doubt your cop buddies won't be charging into crowds with batons protesting against fascist laws. If they do, "following orders, then they are responsible for their actions. Ps. And if I need help in parenting from you, I will let you know.

    • Marcus Lamb was a prominent televangelist, founder of Texas-based Christian Daystar Television Network, and an influential anti-vaccine advocate. Lamb often spoke against Covid-19 vaccines on his show, calling them an "experimental shot" that was "dangerous." Lamb's wife and children frequently appeared on the decades-old network that reportedly reached over 108 million households. The Lambs repeatedly questioned the efficacy of the vaccines, warning that they killed people, or caused them to have neurological disorders. Instead of getting vaccinated, Lamb would say, "we can pray" and use alternatives like the animal anti-parasite drug Ivermectin. But in mid-November, Lamb contracted the virus, and on Tuesday, he died.
    • I'm a Styx fan, and I really tried to like this album, but just could not get into it. Oh well. I see they just announced 2022 summer co-headliner tour with REO, with Loverboy opening. Some pretty big venues; will be interesting to see if they can draw in.....

    • Berlin (CNN)Germany on Thursday announced a nationwide lockdown for the unvaccinated, as its leaders backed plans for mandatory vaccinations in the coming months. Unvaccinated people will be banned from accessing all but the most essential businesses, such as supermarkets and pharmacies, to curb the spread of coronavirus, outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel and her successor, Olaf Scholz, announced Thursday, following crisis talks with regional leaders. Those who have recently recovered from Covid-19 are not covered by the ban. The pair also backed proposals for mandatory vaccinations, which if voted through the parliament could take effect from February at the earliest.
