Loved Kenny Leckremo' voice, as it fitted them perfectly, but I am interested to hear what Mr Grönwall will bring to the band.

Erik Gronwall is brilliant! Fantastic voice. Check out his new solo album....great stuff. A few cuts on there that BJB would give his left nut to write and record.

Good choice. Not that he's as good as Kenny, but I think he will fit well in the band. He's about the same age as the others and share the same passion for this kind of music.

 

Rumour is the band will record an EP of old songs with Erik on vocals. Would be cool!

Never really listened to Heat that much, but have been listening to some of Eriks stuff on Youtube and I have to say his voices is amazing.

And who cares that he was on Pop Idol, or whatever they call it, the simple fact is the tunes he was performing would not be performed on the UK or US variants, which makes their version even cooler.

I'd be totally stunned if I ever heard Van Halen, Maiden and Skid Row on the UK version.

Just downloaded and listened to both his solo albums, and I have to say his second album seems to have deviated from his obvious love of the classics, and I get a feeling that the record company is trying to steer him into a more modern direction. My guess would be that joining H.E.A.T. would be his way of regaining that rock style.

yeah sure its modern but its still excellent. Songs like Crash n Burn and Breathe In Breathe Out are just great.

From H.E.A.T. newsletter:

 

"We have so much nice stuff coming up so we want you to keep busy keeping track of whats going on! :)

We're aiming for a recording of an EP or something to get a fresh start with Erik and sometime in the beginning/middle of 2011 we want to have a full length album out. We want to make a music video for you guys as well so we've put that on the drawing board (as we say in Sweden).

Good times ahead, stay tuned! "

 

Sounds great indeed!

Never heard of the dude at all but if he won that TV show I assume he has a good voice and I'm just glad HEAT aren't throwing in the towel, and they're going onwards... regardless of who is fronting them. :) Can't wait to hear new stuff.

Search for his stuff on youtube. During Swedish Idol he covered songs like Bryan Adams - Heaven, Bon Jovi - Always, Van Halen - Why cant this be love, Kiss - Shout it loud, Iron Maiden - Run to the hills & Skid Row - 18 & life.

Think that pretty much shows where he is musically!

His solo album is the best modern rock disc ive heard this year - fantastic rock/pop.

I love that "Crash N' Burn" song, but can't find the album anywhere...

Have just listened to both his albums again, and I have to say that on second listen, the second album is a top album.

Timeless (which I believe is a co-write with Paul Stanley) is a classic Bon Jovi-esque ballad, and even reminded me of Never say goodbye at the start!

Yep, Timeless is excellent.

 

'Breathe In Breathe Out' is a fav too....brilliant uptempo pop/rock

 

'Destination Anywhere'.......excellent

 

In fact there's hardly a filler on board.

 

Modern rock album of the year for me :-))

Wow, will check out his solo stuff immediately. It's completely passed me by at this point.

 

His latest disc is a good one. It's a bit generic & his vocals are very reminiscent of that European-Stage Dolls/Evenrude version of the Bryan Adams sound, just a little lighter. "Crash N' Burn" is the best tune by far IMO. He's definitely a talented singer though, with very little evidence of an accent, and will probably add a more modern slant to the H.E.A.T sound as he's not a pure AOR-vocalist...

Heard both his albums last night. I actually enjoyed quite a lot on the covers album... it was nice stuff. His proper disc is good too. As Tim says, it's pretty much a generic Idol rock CD, but like the rest of them it's pretty damn good. He does have a very good voice too and should slot nicely into HEAT, vocally at least. Visually he's a bit of twerpy looking fella. :lol: But yeah, should be good for HEAT and bring them some more deserved attention. Surely he's personally taking a backwards step in terms of record sales by joining HEAT, isn't he?

I'd doubt he is taking a sales step backwards as the will give him more exposure outside of Sweden, as very few people seem to be selling his CDs internationally.

On top of that, I doubt he will walk away from his solo career anyway, so it would just be extra revenue on top of his solo album sales.

    • Hey everyone, Johnny Leigh has made it into the final stretch in the new steel panther bassist search, we need everyone to go to this link and vote for him, this is fucking HUGE!  this was the bassist for Young & Fabulous, I just met him but he's one of the coolest guys ive met, and he's a fucking bad ass bass player.   https://steelpantherrocks.com/pages/the-road-to-the-road?fbclid=IwAR0o6fG03T_b3iuJCrqENuets5sX_XkvTHZCy_2ODjhL1xyiHzTK9qMJwC0
    • Haha poor DLR. But Axl is one of the most under or over-rated singers depending what camp you are in. I think he is great.
    • Wow, this'd make me happy. 
    • didn't see this coming??? https://www.facebook.com/100044481307670/posts/443250043834369/  
    • Intrigued who you didn't know. Assume it's the couple I quickly looked up, lol. 1. Gronwall. Love both versions of HEAT but Gronwall undoubtedly has the stronger voice.  2. I went with Rexon, but only because we only have such a small sample size of Keyes? Is he still even in Crashdiet? As much as I love Crazy Lixx, I have to say, if I knew more about this Keyes fella I'd probably pick him because on voice alone, I wouldn't say I'm a Rexon fan. Thankfully his band is killer.  3. Whiteman. lol, I like the guy but not many he'd beat in this. Since I haven't heard Rhino Bucket for a few decades, for good reason, I had to give it to Whiteman. 4. Gotta go with Axl. Again, not a mad fan of his voice, but respect is due for his range. Never thought much of DLR at all, so Axl in this one easily.  5. Again, don't really like either of these guys' voice to be fair. Love Keel, but, gotta say, on a purely vocal level, is Ron Keel the worst vocalist in all of hard rock? Quite possibly (not including that ass licker from The Darkness, of course). Don't like Shortino, but admittedly when he sings the more melodic/commercial stuff he actually scrubs up pretty good (eg. Badd Boyz). So my pick is Shortino. 6. lol, two more voices I don't individually like. Swan sound so strained all the time, and I never quite loved Tramp's voice, despite being in a sensational band. I actually went with Swan in this instance.  7. Hetfield over Mustaine. Don't really care for either, but content with my pick.  8. Jizzy goes alright, was never a fan of McMaster. Much as I liked Dangerous Toys, his voice was pretty awful at time, to be fair.  9. Bach, easily. Love Steelheart and Mike, but Bach all the way. 10. Wow, surprised by this result so far. Prime Dokken is as good as it gets, but on a purely vocal level, definitely got to give this one to Meniketti, who's a pretty damn fine vocalist.  11. Easy one. Not a fan of Vescera, love Tempest (especially when he was still making good music). 12. Another pretty straightforward one. Blades is solid, but Gramm has an unmistakably fantastic voice.   
    • CRT is what they are trying to force into our elementary schools, it teaches kids that they have privilege if they are white, if they are black they are oppressed, and no matter what they do in life all the rules and laws in this country are racist and rigged so if your a minority its all working against you, it's garbage, and it's further proof that these fucking cockroaches really are not interested in trying to improve race relations in the US, they are only into playing identity politics and making sure racism not only survives but thrives, if racism goes away then so does their meal ticket.
