My 100 Most Anticipated CD’s Of 2012

Recommended Posts

This Is My 100 Most Anticipated CD’s Of 2012

 

 

01.Crazy Lixx – Riot Avenue (Quite simply the best street sleaze band going around these days and the next record is just gonna be huge!!!)

 

02.Trixter – TBA (One of my favourite ever bands, and I have got the feeling they wont be trying anything too experimental, they will hopefully be sticking to the similar formula that brought us one of the best Melodic Hard Rock albums ever - “Hear!”).

 

03.H.E.A.T. – TBA (More newish kids on the block and another amazing band that this decade has produced. A band that you are guaranteed to get an album at the highest of qualities!)

 

04.Tyketto – TBA (From all reports another one of my favourite bands will be releasing a new album in the same vein as “Don’t Come Easy” and that’s gotta be good  The brief song sample that I’ve heard sounds killer!~!)

 

05.Hurricane – TBA (Well, this was a massive shock when I first heard that these hard rockers were realising a brand new album in 2012, really excited to hear what direction they take!)

 

06.Ratt – TBA (I really thought Ratt’s fantastic comeback album “Infestation” was just gonna be a one off, but that is most certainly not gonna be the case. From what vocalist Stephen Percy says, the band plans to release an album early/mid next year)

 

07.Ugly Kid Joe – TBA (Now, I think most people know what I think of this band – they are one of my all-time favourites as their second album “Menace To Sobriety” is one hell of a record. UKJ would have been easily in my top 3 most anticipated of 2012, but unfortunately when I first heard their new single, it really didn’t move me like their previous work. I mean, I loved the guitar work and the production sounded fine but Whit’s vocals were way off, I hope this isn’t an indication of the way the record will pan out – we’ll have to wait and see)

 

08.The Last Vegas – TBA (I wasn’t a massive fan of their debut album as most rockers were but the new single “The Other Side” just blew my mind!! Amazing stuff in the same vein as Australia’s very own “Airbourne”

 

09.Black Rain – Lethal Dose Of… (Now, some might think that this album has already been released, but if it has, it’s been the worst marketed CD I have EVER heard of. The songs that I heard in particular “I Need My Doctor”, is just amazing – Dr. Feelgood type of music and a real step up from their debut album, which I also loved.)

 

10.Crashdiet – TBA (4th album from what are becoming these “Sleaze Rock Legends” and album number 2 with lead singer “Simon Cruz”. The guys just have it all and this is why they are admired so much over the globe! The only problem with this release is I think it’s gonna be released in the second half of 2012, oh well, you know what they say – good things come to those who wait!!)

 

11.Marchello Vestry – TBA (A guy that knows what the fans want, a balls out rockin’ trip back to 1989! Last album was simply stunning!)

 

12.Chris Laney – TBA (Yes, that’s right – album number 3 is on the way. I was reading this news on his website with a massive grin on my face)

 

13.Baton Rouge – TBA (Love’em, love’em, love’em!! Haven’t heard from these guys for quite some time, lets hope they return to their glory days. Just another band that I get good vibes about with this new record.)

 

14.Britny Fox – TBA (Another legendary sleaze glam band will release a new album in 2012. Reading interviews with the band, they will be recording the new album in the same vein as the first 3 records; they may be even recording tracks demoed for the first 2 albums that never officially saw the light of day. Hope that’s not just PR, we’ll see?)

 

15.Guns N‘ Roses – TBA (The news of the Gunners releasing a new CD in 2012 is very exciting for me. I think I was in the minority when I rated “Chinese Democracy” as one of their best albums ever. I think Axel still has it and if the newie is as good as Chinese Democracy – I will be a happy man!)

 

16.Babylon A.D. – TBA (Derek Davis and the boys are back and will be releasing a brand new album in 2012. I have loved everything these guys have ever done including their last CD “American Blitzkrieg” which I know most people didn’t dig at all. It wasn’t up to the same standard as their first 2 discs but I think that was mainly due to the production values on the record.

 

17.Lipstixx ‘N’ Bulletz – TBA (A great new band that I discovered on MySpace and bought us an amazing debut that could have come straight outta 1989)

 

18.Dynazty – TBA (I read somewhere that this rockin’ band already have plans for a 2012 release. This Chris Laney produced band really know how to rock and do a great job of pleasing the loyal rockers around the way. The first & second albums are awesome and I really love what Perris Records are doing!

 

19.Charm City Devils – TBA (More new comers that leave a bright future on the scene. Still very hungry to make a name for themselves, so very excited about this one!!)

 

20.Michael Thompson Band – Future Past (Sound clips sound very impressive and as a massive fan of his debut “How Long”, this is one I’m really excited about too!)

 

21.Warrant – TBA (Another new album due late next year sounds good to me! Robert Mason is the best rock singer of all time. I really liked their “Rockaholic” album, especially the song “Snake”!)

 

22.Casablanca – Apocalyptic Youth (I think people know how much I love the work that Chris Laney does behind the sound board and he will be weaving his magic on this record too. Now, to be honest, I don’t know a hell of a lot about this band and album. I’ve just seen their very impressive single/video entitled “Downtown”. I really like the tune. I know Casablanca feature Ryan Roxie but don’t even know what label they are signed to. I love the album cover too, bring on 16/03/12!!!~!

 

23.Pride Of Lions – TBA (A big fan favourite in the melodic rock community and for very good reason. Another classy band that know what their fans wanna hear.)

 

24.Baby Jane – TBA (A GREAT new band that I stumbled across on MySpace. They have the look, the sound and the attitude. I also think they are from Sweden which is a great sign! No official release date yet but they have been hinting at a debut album for 2012, let’s hope we see something great.)

 

25.No Love Lost – TBA (This band are amazing and featured in last years top 100 anticipated albums but the band didn’t end up releasing the CD this year. I highly recommend people check out their MySpace page and especially their song “Dirty Girl” – really killer stuff!!~!)

 

26.Beretta Jane – TBA (Another band that I stumbled across on MySpace which sound AMAZING!! Can’t wait for the debut album.)

 

27.Seventh Key – Seventh Key III (Great, great band that write some outta this world tunes! Always guaranteed a top notch recording and a bunch of guys that take so much pride in their work)

 

28.Slamer – TBA (A new solo album from the great Mike Slamer, I wish he would get back together with Steelhouse Lane, but if that’s not an option – this is the next best thing.)

 

29.W.E.T. – TBA (Another fan favourite that if memory serves correctly, Mr. McNiece gave a 100% on his rating system and justifiably so. Bring on album number 2.)

 

30.Hardline – TBA (Like most around these days, Hardline’s debut was an all-time classic & the following album have been of a high quality also, let hope they return to form and come back with another pearler!)

 

31.Gotthard – TBA (First record with “” at the helm and first record after the tragic passing of original lead singer “”. I really hope that this record is written in a positive vein with upbeat and cheerful songs, but if it’s not – you can hardly blame these Swiss rock legends)

 

32.Sunstorm – Emotional Fire (Just knowing a quality record label + quality muso’s team up with one idea in mind has gotta be a positive thing and subsequently a great record will come out of it!!)

 

33.Jeff Scott Soto – Damage Control (I really loved this guy’s last solo album, had some really amazing songs and always look forward to what JSS has up his sleave.)

 

34.Holy Water – TBA (Apparently these guys have a full length album in the works and due out sometime next year. These guys are fantastic, remind me very much of House Of Lords – very exciting)

 

35.Axel Rudi Pell – TBA (The old master is back with album number 128 and I just love his style. He has made some of the most amazing epic hard rock music over the years and never seems to fail on any of his releases, especially with vocalist “Johnny Goieli”)

 

36.Survivor – TBA (Love to hear what these old boys come up with in 2012, you just don’t know. Lets hope for a return to the glory days!)

 

37.Eclipse – Bleed And Scream (Another great newish band that are keeping the melodic rock flame alight, gotta love that!~!)

 

38.Nasty Idols – TBA (Was reading on the bands Myspace or Website page that a new Nasty Idols is in the works and will be released sometime next year! Legends of the genre.)

 

39.Slash – TBA (Really looking forward to this record more so than his last few as I absolutely LOVE Myles Kennedy! He will be singing on all of the tracks. From what Slash is saying about this record, it’s gonna have more direction than his last and that suits me fine!)

 

40.Van Halen – TBA (Not the biggest fan ever but to hear these guys again together recording new material gets me excited. I really enjoyed their last album with Gary Chorone which I know was rare. This though will probably be the most interesting album of 2011)

 

41.Lillian Axe – The Days Before Tomorrow (One of my absolute favourite bands, like 99% of people here, would love a return to the Love & War days, unlikely though.)

 

42.Dokken – TBA (To be perfectly honest, I really dig 1 in every 4 or 5 songs that these guys record, but they are so highly regarded, I always see myself picking up all their releases with much excitement.)

 

43.Tango Down – Identity Crisis (Kivel Records are a big favourite of mine and really have a great knack on picking extremely quality bands!)

 

44.Steve Augeri – In The Moment (I could listen to this guy 24/7, absolutely love his voice, I know I say it a lot, but another one of my favourite vocalists and singer of the GREAT Tall Stories. I can only hope the solo tunes are in the same vein as Tall Stories)

 

45.Find Me – TBA (A new band on the best record label in the world “Frontiers Records”, this one was hard a place for me as I’ve only heard people talk about them and have never heard any of their music. Really interested in hearing the outcome.)

 

46.Jetboy – TBA (The Miki Finn-less Jetboy are reportedly on the verge of releasing their first full length album in quite some time. I really love this band, they have got the x-factor that always keeps me interested. Their “Off Your Rocker” EP released last year was a nice little teaser, now I’m ready for the full length album!)

 

47.Steelheart – TBA (One of my favourite ever bands that released 2 of the best Hard Rock albums ever in the early 90’s. I really should have these guys much further up the list but Mike Matijevic is very unpredictable, which could result in the best album of 2012 or the worst, lets hope for the best)

 

48.Steve Lukather – TBA (Quality artist & probably should be higher up in my order. I really look forward to seeing him when he comes out next year to Australia with the G3 boys!)

 

49.Starship – TBA (The band that built my city on rock ‘n’ roll, a 2012 version of Starship will be interesting to say the least.)

 

50.Mark Spiro – It’s A Beautiful Life (Love this guy, been following him for a very long time, right back from his killer debut and he has never let me down over the journey.)

 

51.Bangalore Choir – TBA (Really liked both of BC’s, not too much more to say. Like most, the debut was fantastic with some killer guitar solos)

 

52.Mad Max – Another Night Of Passion (After the re-issue of their classic debut album “Night Of Passion”, the guys are heading back into the studio to record some kind of sequel which will be very interesting if nothing else.)

 

53.Crunch – TBA (Formally known as Adriangale when signed to Kivel Records, I really hope the new tracks are a continuation of where Adriangale finished off. Word has it that the new tracks are every bit as good as anything Adriangale ever did – we’ll have to wait and see.)

 

54.Asia – Americana (A real quality band that always produce quality records, real value for money band.)

 

55.Dare – Seven (The great Dare? Well, they were great early in their career, I really hope just like 99% of Melodic Rock fans, they have a return to their vintage form and produce another “Blood From Stone” type album, I’m not holding my breath though.)

 

56.1927 – TBA (The Aussie legends have recorded a brand new album which I have been following on Youtube. Should be interesting to see what the boys come up with in 2012)

 

57.Alien – TBA (Another band that oozes class and once again fingers crossed for an album like the killer debut)

 

58.Sinai – TBA (Similar kind of story to Adriangale, this is the new band from the members of Silvertide. As most people know, Silvertide recorded a follow up album to the CLASSIC debut record, but their record label never released it for some reason. Let’s hope the debut from Sinai will be a natural progression to Silvertide’s debut!)

 

59.Shinedown – TBA (Nice band that is getting some decent airplay in Australia. Maybe a little too modern sounding for me but still a band of immense quality)

 

60.Richard Marx – TBA (I guy that reminds me of when I was a kid going through school. A real class act and wow, what an incredible voice! I love you Mr. Marx)

 

61.Dean Davison & The Bedlam Hearts – Our Unlived Life (Britney Fox’s original vocalist will be releasing his first solo ever and I really look forward to hearing were this goes. One of those albums that could go in any direction, lets hope it goes in the Britny Fox direction!)

 

62.Gary Hoey – Utopia (One of the best guitarist ever, can’t wait to hear what he comes up with on the new record. I really like the first single off the album “Only Human”, it’s a brilliant Pop Rock track that reading reviews has divided even his most loyal fans. I’m lucky that I’m one of his fans that really likes the new direction, having said that, I would rather him do a new instrumental album like the classic “Animal Instinct”.)

 

63.Divine Judgement – TBA (Ex-Britny Fox band member, Tommy Paris will be releasing his post BF work through Retrospect Records. I really hope Retrospect don’t fuck up this releases like most of their other cheap knock-offs they do!~!)

 

64.Bobby Kimball – TBA (A real legend of the melodic rock world – enough said.)

 

65.Paul Sabu – Bloody Hell (Once again, I’m always keen to check out what Paul is up to. Just like Strangeways, I wasn’t overly rapped in his last effort, but am hopefully for a return to the glory days)

 

66.Eddie Money – TBA (Thinking about Eddie Money brings great memories for me, I have loved everything he has done since his 1986 classic “Can’t Hold Back”. A real consistent performer!)

 

67.Aldo Nova – Too Much Sex (I love this guy, I hope the new disc will be in the same vein as “Blood On The Bricks” but from all reports, I shouldn’t be holding my breathe. I have heard that the new disc will be more like “Nova’s Dream” which I also liked.)

 

68.Faith Circus – TBA (Really looking forward to the follow up album to the 2006 debut released on Kivel Records!)

 

69.Silent Rage – TBA (Jesse Damon recently let the cat outta the bag that there will be a new Silent Rage album in 2012. One of the greats from the hey day.)

 

70.Kiss – Monster (I’m not a massive fan of Kiss but really enjoyed their last effort and to hear that they will be releasing a new album in 2012 is very exciting.)

 

71.Guardian – TBA (Really liked this bands early material and hope they can come up with something similar, also I hope they go easy on the childish religious lyrics, you’d think they would of lyrically grown up by now!)

 

72.It Bites – Map Of The Past (Loved their “The Tall Ships” album and to be honest it was the first I had ever heard from them. Not massive on the progressive crossover, but a band that come with immense talent)

 

73.Def Leppard – TBA (This one is way down the order because it really could go either way. Obviously one of my favourite bands that released 2 of my favourite albums “Hysteria” & “Adrenalize”, but to expect anything like those classics would be dreaming.)

 

74.Andy Taylor – Motherload (Now, this release should be much higher in my top 100 as I love all his previous work, but from memory Andrew McNeice said that his new solo album wasn’t gonna be in the same vein as his other solo work that won him all his fans in the first place, why, I’m not sure?)

 

75.Wrathchild – TBA (Glam rock legends, they will be releasing a brand new studio release in 2012, I hope my facts are right because they only released a new album in 2011.)

 

76.Scorpions – Comeblack (I think this is the German rock legends last full length album before they call it quits, lets hope they go out on a high!)

 

77.Seven Dayz – TBA (Another new exciting band brought to us by Kivel Records. Hope this one will be released early in the new year.)

 

78.Stephen Percy – Battering Ram (From all reports, the 4th solo effort from Mr. Percy will be in parts songs that were suppose to be on Ratt’s last effort “Infestation”. That’s very exciting have loved everything that Ratt has done over the years.)

 

79.Jace Pawlak – TBA (New album from Kivel Records. I have heard great things about this guy and he wouldn’t have been signed to Kivel if he didn’t have a truck load of talent.)

 

80.Planet Zero – TBA (Yet another new band promised to us from Kivel Records, should to be another top quality release from one of my favourite record labels.)

 

81.Living Loud – TBA (Anything Steve Morse touches, I want now!! I really liked the debut album that these guys did and I’m glad that it wasn’t just a one off album. What gives me extra hope for this album is the fact the Jimmy Barnes seems to be back in form with his fantastic new solo album that he has just released.)

 

82.Mecca – TBA (Album number 3 is apparently due out very late 2012, I will keep a keen eye out.)

 

83.Europe – TBA (Like most rockers, we want another “Out Of This World” or “Prisoners In Paradise”, probably not that likely, but we can always hope!)

 

84.Distorted Wonderland – S/T (Very cool sounding new band. Great attitude mixed with some fantastic production.)

 

85.London – TBA (Sunset Strip hero’s are back in the studio recording a brand new album with their original line-up. This is bound to be very interesting!)

 

86.Adler’s Appetite – TBA (Really dug the first album and super keen on hearing the next edition)

 

87.Carl Dixon – Lucky Dog (Really like this guys voice and though his last 2 solo efforts were great!)

 

88.Dante Fox – TBA (A band that I’ve just recently got into. Great female vocals that remind me of the great Femme Fatale)

 

89.Beautiful Beast – Adult Oriented Candy (now these guys sound like something very interesting! From what I’ve heard, these rockers debut album will feature tracks similar to what 1989 hard rock was all about)

 

90.Sinner Saints – TBA (A band that I discovered through the awesome sleazeroxx.com, their song on MySpace entitled “Livin’ It Up” sounds like the band have a lot of potential – very exciting!)

 

91.Radioactive – TBA (These release has been talked up by a lot of people that I respect a great deal, can’t wait!)

 

92.Michael Monroe – Another Night In The Sun (The wirely old glam legend is back with a brand new solo effort. I have never fully loved Michael’s work but always had time for what he’s all about.)

 

93.David Reece – TBA (Love all the Bangalore Choir material David has been involved with and hope the new solo album will be in a similar vein to the great Bangalore Choir.)

 

94.Duran Duran – TBA (I should probably be more excited about the new one from Duran Duran but the song samples that I’ve heard so far haven’t really grabbed me much. But from what other respected people are saying, I may have got it wrong – hope so!)

 

95.Petra – TBA (A really classy band musically that I really do like a lot. In my opinion, the bad point to this band is their childish God talk rubbish in their lyrics.)

 

96.Priscilla – Eight Lives Gone (The glam legends from Ohio are back with album number 2. It only took them about 25 years to record some new material and from what I’ve heard, the tunes sound pretty damn good! Keep rockin’ boyz!~!)

 

97.Mayland – Light Of A New Day (Look forward to hearing what these guy come up with on the follow up to the 2008 debut. You gotta love a band that wanna only play classic AOR from the glory days)

 

98.Yes – TBA (Well, 11 years in the making. Look forward to hear want these rock legend come up with in 2012)

 

99.Vicious Rumors – Razorback Killer (I’ve got a few of their albums, to be honest, they are a little too Metal for my tastes but ever now a again my ears pick up when Mark McGee blasts off with a sizzling guitar solo.)

 

100.Danger Avenue – TBA (I thought their debut had quite a lot of potential, really look forward to hearing what these guys come up with on effort number 2)

 

Bands I would love to hear more from in 2012 are: American Bang, Bad City, Hinder, Hardcore Superstar, Wig Wam, Babylon Bombs (W/ New Lead Singer), Vains Of Jenna, Dirty Penny, The Treatment just to name a few. My ultimate Christmas dream would be for someone to release Silvertide’s Second Unreleased album, it would be such a shame if we had to wait 10-15 years to hear what these guys recorded as their follow up!

 

I hope people can get some enjoyment outta my list.

 

Kind regards

David

Babylon Bombs... are they getitng back together? They haven't been together in a few years now. I know they tried out a new singer back then, but it never went any further. You heard any whispers? Noticed they ahve been active on their face book of late.

 

Last Vegas.... the recent album wasn't actually their debut. They had 3 albums and an EP before 'Whatever Gets You Off'. Alot of people seem to think it was their debut, but far from it.

 

Black Rain.... agreed, worst marketed album ever. Still can't really be called a 2012 release, even if it does get wider marketing.

 

Lipstixx n Bulletz ... aslo been very quiet for a few years. WOuld love to hear something new from them too.

 

Casablanca w/ Ryan Roxie should be awesome if the tracks they released last year are anything to go by.

 

Beautiful Beast - Adult Oriented Candy was released 2011. Althouhg you are correct in saying a new album is on the way.

Babylon Bombs to my knowledge are still retired unfortunately. Some of the band-members are playing in other bands now (can't recall the names, nothing I really liked). Would love to see them getting together again or at least releasing another cd with unreleased songs and demos!

 

Just got the Sleaszy Ride Records-Newsletter: Lipstixx'n'Bulletz have split up!

 

So did American Bang unfortunately!

 

Is that old school-Britny Fox record still in the cards? I surely hope so, but I doubt it...

 

Do you or anyone else by chance know what the status of "Hell'n'Diesel" (excellent debut) and "The Galvatrons" (really liked their debut!) are? It still makes you wonder when bands manage to fall completely under the radar in this day and age...

 

There's a lot more I'm looking forward to, mainly newer or younger bands and not so much a lot of the regrouped 80s bands you named (Trixter and Treat being the shining exceptions!)...still cool to read it though!

From what i understand "Hell n Diesel" split up a few years back aswell, so ican't really see them releasing anything. Could be wrong tho.

 

Galvatrons... pretty sure they're still around. Porbably just between albums i'd say. Thouhgt they had 1 good song, but everything else i heard from them was way to poppy / new wave / synth.

That Hell N Diesel was soooo good. I sure wish they'd get back together.

This Is My 100 Most Anticipated CD’s Of 2012

07.Ugly Kid Joe – TBA

 

haven't heard about them coming back, but interested to hear if there's any. A good thing if they can emulate the 'America's Least Wanted' sound / vibe

 

09.Black Rain – Lethal Dose Of…

 

this is 2011 release and yes, the distribution link is very poor. Can't get hold onto it until today and I still want it badly. I think it showed up once at Amazon France, but only for couple of months, and it's gone. Weird for a new release!

 

10.Crashdiet – TBA

 

i've read that they begin the writing process, but no promise from the band whether a new album will come out this year, perhaps early next year ?

 

11.Marchello Vestry – TBA (A guy that knows what the fans want, a balls out rockin’ trip back to 1989! Last album was simply stunning!)

 

I'm hoping they'll have one out, but no news at all about this.

 

14.Britny Fox – TBA

 

No news at all about this, but could be interesting :)

 

15.Guns N‘ Roses – TBA

 

I also like Chinese Democracy, a very good album and of course it's not the Appetite sequel, but I don't think there'll be a new album this year. If there's one, should be around 2015 I guess :D

 

16.Babylon A.D. – TBA

 

No news about this yet

 

17.Lipstixx ‘N’ Bulletz – TBA

 

band has split up, too bad :(

 

18.Dynazty – TBA

 

yes I've heard this one, but I hope they don't rush things out and better prepare for an outstanding release next year rather than putting and scrambling things quickly for a new release.

 

21.Warrant – TBA

 

too fast I guess, but do you hear any news about this ?

28.Slamer – TBA

 

if Slamer went on to build a new Seventh Key album, does he have time for a solo ?

 

47.Steelheart – TBA

 

he still got an awesome vocal but judging from the last EP, let's not get our hopes too high because it kinda blew. Perhaps if there's a new album, could be a decent one unless he can nail something as good as the debut or the sophomore.

 

69.Silent Rage – TBA

 

Could be awesome!

 

73.Def Leppard – TBA

 

we can stop dreaming of them getting back to the glorious 80s days, I think it's over since 1996 :D

 

78.Stephen Percy – Battering Ram

 

I wonder what happened to the previous working title of 'Sucker Punch' ?

79.Jace Pawlak – TBA

 

this is Jace a.k.a Jason Pawlak right ? 2011 has seen him released Chasing Magic album, if there's a new album on the way, perhaps should go under Chasing Magic name ?

 

82.Mecca – TBA

 

are you sure ? because from the debut to the sophomore takes them 9 years and it's only a year gap for the third?

 

83.Europe – TBA (Like most rockers, we want another “Out Of This World” or “Prisoners In Paradise”, probably not that likely, but we can always hope!)

 

Unless Kee Marcello is getting back to the system, no way Europe is going to the melodic road. John Norum always prefer the heavier tune and modern path.

 

86.Adler’s Appetite – TBA (Really dug the first album and super keen on hearing the next edition)

 

i've heard couple of songs posted last year, and it's very good, in the veins of early GNR. If a new album is out this year, can be a real blast.

 

89.Beautiful Beast – Adult Oriented Candy

 

i guess this one is from last year.

 

96.Priscilla – Eight Lives Gone

 

i guess this one is also out already, under FNA records.

 

97.Mayland – Light Of A New Day

 

it's Myland actually and it's already out early last year.

 

99.Vicious Rumors – Razorback Killer

 

it's out under SPV if i'm not mistaken, around April 2011

I hope Marchello- Vestry bring in a real drummer this time. The machine was a major drawback last time,,,,

The Scorpions album is already out and is just a collection of re-recorded classics as far as I'm aware...Sting In THe Tail was the last definitive studio album.

Hinder just had a short update on FB that they begun writing their new album in Nashville! So I'm pretty sure they're going to release a newbie towards the end of the year.

 

Crashdiet should definately have an album out this year from what I've read! Actually it was planned for spring, but because of some more gigs they've played at the end of 2011 all around the world it probably is going to be out in autumn.

 

Dynazty have pretty much finished recording their 3rd album together with Peter Tägtgren and it's going to be out around April/May! There's a video-studio diary over at youtube.

 

I have a feeling there's going to be quite a few debut-releases from upcoming Swedish bands this year if you go by their FB-updates. Baby Jane is definately one of my most-anticipated albums! They really took their time to put it together and if it's well produced it's going to be a must-have for any Crazy Lixx or Crashdiet fan.

 

Also it seems that Pretty Wild, Debbie Ray and Pompei Nights are going to release follow-ups this year...

 

 

But there's also a LOT of new more AOR-stuff I'm looking forward to, one of them being a new Jimi Jamison album (written/produced by Erik Martensson).

09.Black Rain – Lethal Dose Of…

 

this is 2011 release and yes, the distribution link is very poor. Can't get hold onto it until today and I still want it badly. I think it showed up once at Amazon France, but only for couple of months, and it's gone. Weird for a new release!

 

 

Its on Amazon UK, but isnt cheap at nearly £18.

If I'm going to have to edit, it may as well be on topic. I've got to cut down massively on my CD buying. I say this every year, but this time it has to happen; I'll be down to a maximum of about 10 new CDs in 2012. Therefore, the only CDs I'll definitely be buying will be Wallner/Vain in February and Testament in April. If the Reason CD, which was supposed to be released in December, actually comes out, I'll get that too. From the list in the opening post, Baton Rouge intrigues me the most. Assuming Keeling is on vocals it will probably be a case of downloading a few tracks as I always find some fillers on their albums. The same probably goes for Crazy Lixx and Crashdiet - both produce good songs, but plenty of tracks I can happily live without too.

Just to clear up about BR - yes Keeling is on vocals.

 

re Crazy Lixx and Crashdiet...just about every song is essential in my book.

    • Bonfire had dropped off my radar the past decade (someone mentioned an album a year!!!).   This samples I've heard on the forth coming album have drawn my attention once again and hopefully, this is a refreshing new face for the band's music.    Definitely going to grab a copy of the new one  
    • For sure Tim was one of the best and most gentle soul I ever encountered while collecting music.  Loved all the interactions we had over the years, and yes, he certainly was knowledgable as T-Bone pointed out.   Did a number of trades with Tim and of course, when I was active selling on E Bay, he bought CDs from me and discussed many of the titles I was selling.  Just another good person that I enjoyed.
    • these guys show that you can still make an enjoyable song with generic, borderline cheesy lyrics if the other elements are there
    • Wow....thanks for sharing Tony.   Tim was definitely one of the great guys....I can remember when I was active selling on E Bay, Tim would always be talking to me about different titles and, of course, we traded many times as well    I always had Tim pictured as a very gentle soul.....So sorry to hear of his passing from this awful virus in the world....
    • I am one of those who prefer their style on Knock You Down and Sultans over the direction they've gone in with the last few albums.  I thought the initial promo tracks for this one sounded solid so I gave the album a spin.  Not bad, but at the end of the day none of the tracks really grabbed me like those earlier releases.   
    • I liked the first two promo tracks for the new album, but this one not so much.  And as Geoff mentioned, the video clip itself is pretty bad
    • I don't have one favorite film but there are a few that I rewatch on a regular basis.... Die Hard (first 3 flicks) Pirates of the Caribbean (all of them) Home Alone (first 2) Predator Those are the ones that immediately come to mind but there are others....
    • Canada still hasn't hit the apex yet, although they are saying we should hit it over the next few weeks... I expect we will be staying at home for another 6 months at least...I think we will be dealing with this virus until there is a working Vaccine in place which will be until at least Spring 2021 maybe even Summer 2021...a lot of numbers are being thrown around where we could have as many as 25000 deaths before it is done.....we still aren't testing enough to get a real understanding of the spread.....the economy will truly be screwed for years to come...one good thing to come out of this is that Canada will not have to depend on other countries for health care equipment after this virus as we will make sure that we make our own equipment instead of outsourcing it... latest numbers.... Total: 12,954 (18 presumptive, 12,936 confirmed including 214 deaths, 2,502 resolved)
    • I hope you and your wife are doing well.  Those are difficult enough jobs, but I can only imagine what you both are going through during a time like this.   I anticipate this will remain a major concern here in the U.S. at least through the summer.  In areas hardest hit it really overwhelms the hospitals.  The economy was overall in good shape, but we've already seen lots of furloughs and layoffs.  The federal government has unfortunately been playing catch up through most of this and has had to re-evaluate their assessments and action plans often.  Despite warnings for years from health officials, it seems like both the current and last Presidential administration failed to keep a proper inventory of the necessary ppe and emergency medical supplies. The state and local governments have had to manage much of this on their own initially, and all responded differently.  As such some areas of the country may be better off than others by June/July.  While other states will likely have ramifications for months beyond that.  It astonishes me to see people not taking the recommended precautions seriously while others hoarded essentials early on leading to panic buying and stores struggling to keep some items in stock.  I am grateful my family is well and I remain employed, working from home now.  I check in regularly with my parents, mother-in-law and a few, older neighbors. I try to remain calm so my family feels safe. But to add to my general concerns, I was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer last October.  It's a manageable disease with regular monitoring and treatment, but I am in the high risk category, so my stress level is at a maximum.
