Good band. Think I missed their last disc though, but I remember them needing to get a better producer...

Just received this from the label a couple days ago in order to write a review for Hardrock Haven and while that full, formal review is probably at least 2 weeks out, I'm here to tell you this is a damn good album, several notches better than their previous one, and a prime example of how to combine balls with melodies.

This beauty dropped through my door this morning.

 

What a great album.....10 kick arse pieces of awesomeness. The whole thing is about 31 minutes which seems ridiculous but when each song is as good as this all you can do hit play again ;-)) !!

 

Anyone who is familiar with the debut its like having 10 'Ways Of The World'.........just love the direction they have taken, so much more melodic, every chorus is a winner, and it f kicks your arse !!

 

Love it.

Spun this one tonight... yep, it's a real good one. As Glen says, more consistently melodic than the previous album. Loved the whole album, especially 'Closer.' I also love the length of the songs / album. Seems short on paper, but they do what they need to do without dragging it out. I love that. Well done to the guys on a killer disc.

Yeah, not a sniff of a filler. There's not enough time for one! :lol:

 

A lot bands could learn a quick easy tip on how to make a good CD from these guys.

Well the good news is they found a better producer (assuming you like an ultra-slick sound), the bad news is they pissed their original sound up the wall for bland sugar-sweet modern rock. I loved how their debut combined heavy modern metal with some anthemic choruses, but these days they're about as heavy as ALL TIME LOW or FALL OUT BOY. Every song sounds like the one before and any metal/punk leanings, as well as the heavy-as-hell bass and downtuned-guitar is all gone totally. I do like modern rock, but it has to sound fresh & original rather than dated and plodding, and these mid-tempo tunes bore the life out of me.

You got the same album as us lol??!

 

I love this album. Every track is awesome for me. Hardly modern at all....more kick arse melodic hard rock??

Sums up why I don't like it mate, sounds like that Taking Dawn thing all you guys seem to like. When you first put me on to this band they sounded like a mix of Slipknot and SOTY but they seem to have gone backwards. I'll take the new HINDER over this...

Yeah the sound has changed a fair bit from the debut, but the transition was on the cards when they re-released the debut with a few extra tracks the other year - all the new tracks were far more in this styling.

 

I really liked the debut, but if Im honest my favourite track was by far 'The Way Of Your World' so Im personally thrilled they have gone the more melodic route.

 

Also, not sure where you get the 'plodding mid tempo' reference from - most of these songs kick arse...in a major way IMO.

 

Great anthemic melodic hard rock. Certainly not modern in any way IMO

    • New song 'Defiance' from the album of the same name.    
    • John says he is still in Confess as well.  This was posted on the Confess FB page about an hour ago: TO CLARIFY SOME STUFF!   Yes, i've joined forces with Crashdiet, which feels very exciting indeed. With that being said, I’m still very much a part of confess. Confess is my high school Rock'n roll band that i sang in for the past 15 years and i have no intentions of leaving or changing that. We're currently working on new music and hopefully have something new to show you guys pretty soon.   // John Elliot https://www.facebook.com/confessofsweden?mibextid=JRoKGi
    • Cool song. If ADV is strictly hired to play keys, it should be fine. 
    • Ooh, nice!  I'll have to revisit the first album. 
    • Ugh... I hate you so much. You know I hate you, right? ;} I've never seen either iteration.
