The new single is OK. Needs more backing vocals and a cleaner guitar riff to get me exicted. Might be the low quality of the sound that is turning me off. I so loves Take To The Limit that I'd be very surprised if I didn't get the new one.

Cool! What a pleasant surprise. I was just thinking about these guys the other day. When is the new album due out? I wonder if they are deliberately going a little harder and tougher this time around. I'll be picking it up regardless. I thought "Take It To The Limit" was damn near perfect though.

Check out the video for that new song:

Holy f*ck @ the girls in that clip... As for the tune, pretty good. I like the new slightly ballsier sound... really an album to look forward to, no doubt.

Haha... I was thinking the vocals were mighty out of time but just assumed I was watching a slow connection. :lol:

Somebody just posted a few sample tracks on Youtube. I'm not impressed at all. Two of the tracks sound like Southern Rock à la Black Label Society, two are so-so, been there done that ballads and the another one is boring. Where is the 80's piss and vinegar flare of the last one? I know it's an early impression but unless someone can convince me otherwise, I'll be passing on this one.

Yawn!!! This is the saaaaame song they've done at least 3 or 4 times. I'm not interested.

 

Here is another ballad. A Southern styled ballad...nothin' special.

 

 

What Ya Gonna Do

 

Another Kid Rock wanna be Southern Rock track

 

 

More foot stomping Southern Rock stuff

 

 

 

Maybe I've being too spoiled this year with some great melodic stuff to be able to enjoy Hinder new material.

 

I dare anyone to find any good hooks on those two rockers I added from Youtube. Take It To The Limit was stuffed with hooks after hooks, from what I hear this one isn't. The guitar licks are crappy, listen to the 2 new rockers and then pull out Use Me, Loaded and Alone or Heaven Sent....Take It To Limit kicked ass and was catchy and melodic the new stuff doesn't even come close.

Granted "Take It To The Limit" was a melodic hard rock masterpiece no doubt. But, call me crazy, I'm digging the tracks on this new one as well, even the three you just posted. I'm hearing Nickelback influences more than anything, which isn't a bad thing either. Sure, it might not beat "TITTL" when it's all said and done, but it's still sounding pretty darn good to these ears.

I approach all these things with an open-mind and am fully prepared to admit when I misjudge a band (see H.E.A.T as an example), but these tracks sound pretty weak to these ears. Saw them interviewed in a big rock mag the other day and for all the questions about how they're living the typical rock n' roll lifestyle, no-one asked when they were actually going to make a decent album?

Unlike Tim who hasn't found any appeal to Hinder whatsoever, I loved the band's approach and attitude on Take It To The Limit. But this stompin in the swamps, tuned down guitars, styled Kid Rock/Nickelback/Puddle Of Mud Southern Grunge stuff is a step leap backwards for the band.

Now I want to die.

 

I have to hear these asap to see how accurate all this blasphemy is.

Kid Rock is a bit harsh!

 

Admit that the hooks on those songs arent as good as TITTL, but the first single and that ballad I love!

 

Also dont forget that there are at least another 7 songs unheard, which could all be awesome??

 

As I said I wont judge until I have the disc in my hand.

'The Life' ; Yes, that is jism in my pants. This is exactly one of the reasons I love Hinder. Brilliant ballad, love it.

 

'What ya gonna do' ; pretty average for Hinder, but not terrible. Definitely weaker than anything off the first 2 albums combined.

 

'Put that record on' ; yeah, I'd pass on that too. Not a horrifying chorus, but definitely a really weak track by their standards.

 

'2 sides of me' ; and that one ain't great either. Again, not awful, but pretty average again.

 

Check out this track from the 'Saw 3D' soundtrack, which I saw in all the links:

That one's kind of cool. Looks like Adelitas Way's 'Scream' is on the same soundtrack too.

Having heard this one a couple of times tonight I must thank my lord and saviour Christ for the ballads, which are all great, and 'Striptease.' Man is that one of their best tracks ever or what... and one of the heaviest yet, too. That and the ballads are great (except 'Hey Ho') but overall this is a HUGE step back from the last CD. Either way, this will grow on me and hopefully they release many more CDs and this is just a minor speed bump in their discography. Not awful by any means - I do actually really like it, but they can do better.

Having the same opinion about TITTL, I'm not happy to hear that! Haven't heard the album, but the tracks on youtube really aren't THAT good, although they already grow on me. Still, for the fact that they have written over 70 songs for this one, it's disappointing to hear fillers.

 

Did you hear the Deluxe edition with two bonus tracks or the standard edition?

Being that I'm not really a ballad guy and pretty much everything else I've heard wasn't up to par, I'm passing. Many other things I'd rather spend my money on.

Just caught "Striptease" and "Hey Ho" on youtube. Both freakin' awesome! "Hey Ho" is just HUUUUUGE with that chorus. Loved it. Sounds to me like the album is a pretty good split between riff heavy hard rock and the midtempo/ballad stuff Nickelback has made so popular recently. I'm in!

    • The morons who go to the hospital are just as ridiculous as the people who rail on them for not being vaxed, maybe it's Darwin's theory and who are we to interfere? I begrudgingly went to the hospital, they told me I had Covid, to come to the hospital, I went in they checked my kidney function, gave me some strips to pee on every 7 days, if the strip turned red then to come straight in, then I went home, I think that's pretty common sense, when you make the decision to not get vaxed, don't you kind of assume the risk if it's real? they cant do anything for you, so whats the point in going there? everything they can do you can do at your house, I am firmly in favor of a waiver you need to sign if your not getting vaxed that waives the hospital of any of their duties to treat you, I always spout self accountability rhetoric, that's my olive branch to a vax that's about as trustworthy as the communists pushing it, in my opinion.

    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar
