IF YOU COULD ADD ONE ARTIST TO HH...


LV KIX

Recommended Posts

Just curious.. if you could personally add ONE band or artist to the main Heavy Harmonies site, who would it be. Who is the most overlooked artist or band that you feel fits the HH format.

 

Make an argument for your choice.

 

This might be interesting... we shall see.

They probably don't fit the "format" at all, but I'm gonna say the Ramones.

 

Why? Cuz they f*ckin' RULE that's why!

I just bought the Wounded Bird release of TRASH - "BURNIN' ROCK" which I had a bootleg copy forever & went to look up reviews for it on the site & couldn't believe it wasn't on there... :screwy:

I can name quite a few:

 

Reggie Knighton Band

Sweeney Todd

Nick Gilder

Epitaph

THE ROCKETS!!!!! :beerbang::beerbang::beerbang:

Bob Seger

 

I did add EDEN-EDEN to the data base, but it got deleted. The band is basically August Redmoon, who is on the sight :blink:

 

There is one in every bunch (like a bad banana). The question clearly asks for ONE artist or band. :baneed:

Some really good ones (and a bad one or two). :omg:

 

Of those listed so far I'd say that in my worthless opinion both The Ramones and Crack The Sky should certainly be included on the HH site.

 

My ONE pick would be SR-71. They are melodic, rockin', catchy choruses and the songs are some of the best written in the last 10 or 12 years.

 

Seems strange that there are 2 off-shoot bands from SR-71 on the site (Cinder Road & Charm City Devils).

 

SR-71... :tumbsup:

Candlebox

 

Reason.......Fucking Nickleback....No Candlebox.Pretty simple if you ask me.

I would agree that Candlebox should be added. :tumbsup:

 

And I have really come around to enjoying Nickleback. After my initial hate of them when they first arrived on the scene, their last couple albums have grown on me big time - sort of a "good time party rock" of this generation, similar to what Poison was back in the day.

OK, OK!!

Please don't :baneed: me yet.

I'll go with Bob Seger..

NIGHT MOVES had some great rockers on it. His BOB SEGER SYSTEM stuff was quite hard, but never reissued on c.d.

Another vote for Candlebox here. I have always liked Nickelback as well.

Not my cup of tea, but I'll admit it's better than the singles I've heard.

 

I would choose to have Crimson Glory or Vicious Rumors that I'd like to see on here, but both probably too 'metal'.

Dave, I'm sure that if you submitted SR-71 these days it'd be included on the site. Maybe even my pick of Cauterize would too? Isn't there now a place for these types of modern bands?

 

Anyway, like I think we always said, Dave, I always thought SR-71 should have been included if only for their links to "hair metal" band Honor Among Thieves. :) If Southgang / Butch Walker can do it, why not Honor Among Thieves / SR-71?

I only know Swano's death metal stuff, so the idea of him doing prog/AOR is intriguing. Does the band play guitar solos though? The one thing I don't like about a lot of Swano's stuff is that there aren't many solos.

The one and only:

 

STRAWBS

 

 

They are a mixture between british folk and progressive rock. I once submitted their "Hero and Heroine" CD, which is awesome, but it was turned down. :(

Well the guitar solos are not their strongest point. But the music is good enough to give it a try imo. And I always loved Swanö's voice (both clean and death-style vocals).

My first choice would be Bachman-Turner Overdrive. I submitted two CDs of theirs before but they were rejected. Their music is classic hard rock and there are only a couple of songs I don't like by them.

 

Other honourable mentions.

 

Grand Funk Railroad;

Huey Lewis And The News (I started a poll about this that got a close "no" vote. The people spoke and that's fair enough);

Trapeze;

The Cars (I understand that quite a few of their songs are unsuitable);

Spin Doctors (poppy vocals but quite good funk rock on closer inspection);

Red Hot Chili Peppers (same as above but their later stuff is pop crap);

Little Feat (perhaps a little too soft);

Free (perhaps a bit too early);

Yes.

 

I'll go with BTO though.

    • First, I'm just impressed you found a video where you can actually hear Lzzy; everything I'd seen the last 2 days was terrible sound quality. With that said, she sounds fine. Not gonna make anyone forget Sebastian, or Erik for that matter, but she'll do a good job filling in 👍
    • Was this release on an EP CD?

    • From Escape Music: KEYS has just completed their second album, “The Grand Seduction”.   This all-keyboard band is the brainchild of singer Jake E (Cyhra, Amaranthe and others) and keyboardist Mark Mangold (Touch, Drive, She Said, Michael Bolton, Cher, Paul Rogers and others) with Emanuel Bagge (Sweden’s Got Talent Finalist) on additional vocals and keys, Irwan Fabrien (noted keyboard guitar sound designer) with help of drum gurus Alex Landenburg (Kamelot, Cyhra and others).   Featuring live performances with three keyboardists and a huge battery of keyboards, this ambitious band brings keyboard and instrumental prowess to new heights while playing songs that run the gamut from scathing progressive melodic forays to catchy and melodic rock anthems …and Jake’s award-winning voice (Burrn Vocalist of the year 2020).   Previous KEYS album also featured guest keyboard additions by Charlie Calv of Angel and others.   Though songs are first and foremost, this band shows the versatility of keyboards in this day and age.  These artfully crafted songs are ripe with scathing synth, organ and “guitar” pyrotechnics, dazzling time signatures and drumming, bombastic choruses and “guitar” riffs (played on keyboards with the now available plug in’s that perfectly emulate guitars).  As Mark and Jake are first and foremost award winning songwriters, they never lose sight of the composition and melodies, though couched in the very signature and hard to pigeon hole sound (isn’t that the whole point?) of this band and Jake's 4 octave vocal range.   Release Date: 19th July 2024 CD Catalogue No: ESM389   CD Track List: 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 9:02 2. ALL I NEED  6:49 3. SHINING SAILS  5:51 4. SWITCHBLADE  6:02 5. VORTEX   4:06 6. SKIN AND BONES  6:42 7. TURN TO DUST    4:42 8. CRAZY TOWN   7:43 9. THOUGHT WE HAD FOREVER  6:04 10. THE WORLD IS OURS (Curse the Lies)   4:02   Vinyl Track List: Side A 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 6:47 2. ALL I NEED 6:49 3. SHINING SAILS 5:51 4. VORTEX 4:06   Side B 1.
