Dynazty - Knock You Down

Recommended Posts

Wow didn't see this thread at first thought it was missing (hence the new topic started). From the other thread.

 

Ok so I just got both the European and the Japanese versions of the new DYNAZTY album "Knock You Down". It is like 2 completely different albums! For starters the songs are mixed completely different on each album! Songs are different as well! Different song intros, and parts! This is pretty wild, and has made the double purchase well worth it! It reminds of of the SPREAD EAGLE (Spread Eagle) and VARGA (Prototype) thing where there was 2 versions of the same album with alternate mixes and songs were edited differently! I will try to upload a sample of what I mean in a little bit.

 

The Japanese bonus tracks are awesome! Each album has 2 bonus tracks not found on the others release.

This is one helluva great CD! While their debut was a nice, solid release, on "Knock You Down" the band has really cranked things up a few notches. While I'm currently awaiting a new crop of 2011 releases to arrive in the mail (Poodles, Black n Blue, Warrant, FarCry) this is probably my fave for the year so far... :banger:

I prefer the production on the European version but like the song structures better on the Japanese version.

In this case I'll definitely be seeking out the Euro version. I think Glen worked out the version I have heard is the Jap version, and I just did not like the production job at all, mostly just really weak drum sound. So if the production is better on the Euro one I'll seek it out. Otherwise it's a great album.

 

Like everyone else, though, where do you buy this mofo at?

The drum sound on the European release is much more dynamic and ballsier.

we all know NEH listed it, but the price is killing man :doh:

 

i wonder why they didn't sell it for only $10 at their website, that's the most reasonable and ordinary price for a disc. In these days of digital age where people can download anything easily, why does artist still want to charge an overpriced value and doesn't appreciate the people that really want to buy and support their disc ? that same goes to Blackrain and Miss Behaviour, weird really!

I agree $20 is to much and I'm waiting for it to get into the $12 range. Perris was selling the debut for that price since it came out and I'm not sure why they don't have a US release yet.

Just been listening to 'New Sensation' and 'This Is My Life' from this one and very impressed. Other songs are pretty good too. Seems a pretty expensive CD though. :doh:

The whole thing is excellent, but the euro version (which is the best) is nigh on impossible to find at a decent price.

 

...and the good news?

the other day, i'm trying to contact George (drummer) and suggesting him to hold a limited promotional activity, maybe say $15 included shipment for the community

on the new album, as he's the one sending me samples for a review, but probably they're still busy touring as there are no answers from their camp and it's been a week.

Maybe I'm being naive here, but I really don't understand this. How the f*ck can a CD that only came out this year be so bloody expensive? Did they only press 100 CDs? In which case, why go to the effort of releasing it at all? Surely it doesn't benefit anyone; band, label, etc, to release a CD that no one can actually buy?

 

:wacko:

 

It's okay, I've got some Valium around here somewhere... erm ...

The problem is that Stormvox is a local Swedish label, means that they focus by selling in Sweden and not outside, or probably some other Scandinavian countries, and they didn't have a large distribution partner like AOR Heaven or Frontiers did. (AOR Heaven and Frontiers even have South America / Russian partners and that's really excellent to kick up sales)

 

The record deal with Stormvox is probably much better for the band than Perris Records, that could be the strongest reason they dropped Perris, because when they're under Perris, the distribution is very good, and you can get Perris disc very easy and in a very reasonable price ($10).

 

and the other release is Japanese version, which of course, the price of new release is beyond belief.

 

Best thing for Dynazty to grab a very wide audience is to seal a deal with Frontiers later on their third album, or maybe good thing to have major label such as Universal or Atlantic, and got promoted in USA because they deserved it.

oh and that also happened with that bloody Blackrain disc, still can't get any access to it, even no reply from the band themselves lol have you bought that disc bro ?

 

The 2011 album? Yeah, I have the 2-disc version. Although imo it's not as good as the previous album and I may be putting it on eBay in Jan or Feb.

 

Sounds like Stormvox should get some sort of distribution deal going. You can't even get the CD from the Stormvox site (which, imo, is a really poor site).

Listened to this now, courtesy of Glen (thanks mate). Very good album with lots of good songs on it, the title track is probably my favourite. Shame more people won't get to hear it!

    • I was meaning the promoters who had the fiasco should had a look how run a festival. As for two supports end up playing, and as early week when I talk to drummer of another band not Taste, they still had not been paid. Yes, it was the Deadthings was the backing band for Steve Rachelle.
    • Good band, always enjoy their gear. Need to check if I actually have this one as I possibly missed it. 
    • Yeah, I noticed this at some point through the year but chose not to mention it as I share your sentiments about the "new" track. Definitely not worth tarnishing the album by adding that onto it. Otherwise, it's magnificent. 
    • lol, definitely got the names mixed up there. But that's cool, that there's two original members. When I saw "Tuff" it was Stevie Rachelle and The Deadthings as a back-up band if I recall correctly. There'd been issues with getting his US band out here at the time, which didn't feature any past members of Tuff either way, at the time. 
    • It was Todd Chaisson. George DeSaint left the band with Todd in 1991 after an incident where Jorge was teasing one of the crew about being 'clean' and with a line of coke. Todd came back, Jorge didn't. My ideal Euro line up at the moment would be (following Glamfest with 6 internationals) Kissin' Dynamite The New Roses Bai Bang Dynazty Wig Wam The Poodles Dangerous Curves - as the local act
    • The promoters should not be applauded for delivering what they said, that should be expected. This was Silverback who weren't part of the fiasco regardless. What the promoters should hear is how the sound was very average and that they need to get it right next time. Stevie posted about the shows and asked fro good and bad feedback, so I gave him that. Once I sooked online on a Silverback post that their shows always have too many local acts which reduce the sets of the main acts (which generally are +/- hour - Pop Evil, Corabi does MC94, etc) and they just deleted it rather than hearing an opinion.
    • I have Vain's 'Move on it' as a 1993 release in Japan? Otherwise, put it on the top of my list. Or somewhere near it anyway...   
    • Some killer discs from 1994-1995. Was going to leave it at 20, but too many killer albums to leave it any less than 30.  1. Atlantic     -    Power 2. Amaze Me     -    Amaze Me 3.
