This is probably my favorite band to come out in a long time, easily. Does anyone know if they were any previous bands? Are these guys older or part of the younger generation of rock? The songs War Between Us, When it Comes To Lovin, Two Hot Girls...just awesome!

To my knowledge they are all first timers.

Good news is they have just finished recording the new album, but aparently have to cull six tracks (which will probably end up on singles/downloads I would guess).

 

Going to see them again in May, which is their first headlining gig (although its co-headlining with Heavens Basement, but it should mean a longer set and maybe some new tracks).

Killer release...Mother F*cker is my favorite among a lot of awesome tracks. I would luv to see these guys live some day. Great news on having a new set of tracks ready to go, wow!

I'm not sure if its related to them being on Spinefarm records or what, but Reckless Love has been recording their new album as well.

Seems either the record label has asked both bands to do follow up albums really quickly or both these bands just have a recording urge themselves.

Either way, we could be looking at two more great releases this year by the looks of it.

Could be the pressure of a major label (Spinefarm being a subsidery of Universal), who knows? Anyway, it's great to see young bands trying to release albums within a short timeframe (like back in the days). With so many new bands popping up, it's part of the game to stay in the spotlight, otherwise people move on and forget about you.

still yet to find this cheap. (yes i know it's reasonably priced on amazon (or has been), but postage sucks)

Keep your eye on CDWOW, mate. It's $20 at the minute with free shipping, but I got it for about $16 I think.

 

Great to hear album number two is already so close... for these guys and Reckless Love.

 

I agree they're a great band, and remind me of Endeverafter who alternatively seemed to have disappeared into obscurity and totally destroyed and momentum they may have had with their seemingly reasonably successful debut. :(

I thought Geoff said shipping to Oz was quite reasonable from the UK arm or Amazon.

I suppose this is a stupid question because I know I shouldn't bother asking it, but Mrs. Jeff says I'm an idiot anyway so what the hell....

Does Amazon only offer the Free Shipping on orders over $25 to U.S. customers?

I wait until there are 2 cd's I want then I make the purchase.

Looks like it's au$5.70 per CD. Not too bad if you want to buy one really cheap CD, but if you buy a few CDs pretty soon it's unaffordable.

 

And Jeff, definitely, 100% no free shipping from Amazon to overseas destinations... even for orders over $1000 I dare say. Postage from the US is about $80 per CD. :(

I figured as much...that sucks. I understand why they don't but too bad they can't work something out to get the shipping rates more reasonable. Doesn't help the gas prices keep going up either.

Yeah, it's very frustrating. To be charged $80 for postage, and then the package comes in with a us$3.80 postage stamp. Pretty f*cking annoying.

 

I could understand if they actually paid the full $80 for postage, but the fact that they make pretty much a 100% profit on postage alone is not necessary. Fair rates is all a purchaser wants. Plenty of other people do it...

Totally agree. What they will tell you is you paid $3.80 for "shipping" but the other $66.20 was for the "handling". Shipping and handling, yeah right. I don't want anyone fondling my CD's and then charging me for it.

Never heard of Endeverafter but will check them out. I hear things more to the roots. His voice at times sounds like Whitesnake, Defcon and even at times Mats Leven. Not bad if you ask me. When it comes to lovin sounds like Cheap N Nasty.

Actually the postage is cheaper for multiple purchases, as you only factor in the package rate once and then add the individual item rate per CD.

Interesting... I'll give it a go. But that definitely doesn't work with US Amazon, amirite? Several times I have spent well over $25 to no reward.

Yep, too good to be true... of course.

 

I don't know where they're getting the info for what I put in bold, but you are at no point in time given a "Super Saver Delivery" option anywhere. What a pain in the ass... I had 19 CDs selected too. What a waste of time. :(

This is driving me absolutely fucking insane. I see it's all over the site too, this supposed free shipping to Australia and NZ. But for the complete fuck of me, no matter how many times I try on different computers or anything, there is no fucking way there is a ""Change Delivery Option" button next to the order." It's just not the fuck there. Has anyone got screen prints they can post?

 

The c*nts have deadset given you the hope of free shipping, when in actual fact there is no actual way of claiming it. I'm so fucking pissed off right now I'm not sure what I'll break. Fuck these fucking motherfuckers!

That's ridiculous. Can't you send them a message? They must be in breach of something or other relating to Fair Trade, surely?

    • Ya, when I saw the teaser on fuckbook, I was shocked…such a great surprise.  Hope it’s a great song!
    • Not stellar, but candidly waaaay better than I was expecting.
    • Not going to disagree with this. They've really not changed their sound much across their discography. Either you like it or you don't.
    • New single 'Apocalypse Blues' out tomorrow    
    • Not quite sure about this one. The new (?) songs are good and the re-works of the 'Riot Avenue' songs do sound better than the originals (there is a but coming). 'Sword And Stone' is okay but should have been left in Bonfire's very capable hands. This version pales significantly compared to that one.  Anyway, I guess the idea of the re-recordings is decent here. For the most part the production sounds better, but, there's a problem. And without being a sound guru, I'm not sure exactly what it is. There is what I believe is an issue with the treble area in the final sound, most noticeable in the first song. I don't know the exact way to explain this stuff, but the best way to describe it is that it sounds like a well produced album, at a really low bitrate. Instead of 320kbps it just sounds like it's coming through the speakers at 64kbps... even at a high bitrate. Irritating and something I can't shake, but there's good bits to it too.    
    • I loved this dude's first two post-Idol albums. It's pure pop rock, but I still absolutely love songs such as this; Sadly, for me, everything since those first two albums has been some kind of variation of a train wreck. The Quiet Riot stuff was a mess and this type of metal he's churning out now - I regret to say - is just painful to my ears. Lyrically, he may as well be singing about pasta on train tracks with a side of tree branch for all I can connect with it. Musically I find it really boring, and lyrically it's even worse.  I've actually got the hard copies of first two CDs in my garage but it's too much hassle to go look for them. I can't remember if he wrote or at least co-wrote a lot of the stuff on those two albums, but either way it definitely sounded like the songs at least meant something to him. I'd like to hear that again rather than him trying this metal thing which really doesn't seem to suit him. If he's passionate about it, sure, go for it. I'd love to hear him doing something heavy (and good)... but with songs that actually sound like they mean something to him. This new album sounds like trash to me, I hate to say. He's undoubtedly had a very interesting life post-Idol. I'd much rather hear about that in songs rather than dragons eating reapers in balls of fiery metal or whatever shit is on this album. 
    • Pretty true to their sound so many years into their career. Definitely sounds like HS; no doubt about that. 'Broken' is my favourite song from here... nice tune. Most of the rest is all pretty good to solid too. Admirable effort. 
    • Probably wouldn't have bothered to check this out if I'd not heard an interview with Ace where they spoke about the fact that Steve Brown of Trixter fame co-wrote and produced the album. And it does sound good, production-wise. And the songs are a bit better than I expected. Stand out track is the simple but nice 'Back Into My Arms Again.'  The but? For me, it's the vocals. He is not a good singer... quite a bad one, in fact, and it affects the songs poorly, for me. Which is not to say they're all great otherwise. But some are okay. I wish they'd used Steve for the vocals... 
    • Ok even more clues. Carl's best friend the boy who cried ... and hallowed be thy name.
    • Nope you will kick yourself when it is guessed.
