WELL,Holidays are over. Gifts have been given, and Hungovers have been had.;-) We are getting ready for 2012 (YES Bitch, your ass will be ours!) To keep with the dropping of lil bread crumbs leading up to the release of our new album this march. We made the usual announcements, contests, giveaways, pre orders, album art etc. Your probably asking, a advance snippet? A tune off of the album!? ...Well...NO. Sorry. In time people,Trust us, it's coming! For now we wanted to unveil a lil more of the visual aspect. We are happy to show off our new poster/band photo. Which will be available at our shows. Also, everyone that has pre ordered the new cd, will receive a signed copy. Again, we had the pleasure of working with the very talented, and accomplished Kent Miller of Kent Miller Studios( Steven Tyler, Eric Clapton, Eddie Van Halen, Lady Gaga, Beyonce to name a few). Who helped deliver the visual goods. Thank You Mr. Miller!

John, sent you a reply to the e-mail you sent me, I wanted to make sure I did not miss out on the goody bag before I pre-ordered.

 

Can I get a little re-assurance from you so I can do so. :)

We've got a bunch if emails asking if we were also giving away a lock of hair and the kitchen sink. LoL. Truth is.....when we went through all the goodies we could offer. We realized we just couldn't pick. So we included everything!:-)

 

Only thing we are keeping a secret is the promo gift. Boy its SWEET! Going to be a fun march. Hope to see some of you at a show. Tango Down or whoever.

I'll be buying the cd at the Coventry R.I. show. So no extra goodies for me, but the music is good enough for me!

I'm assuming there are some of those extra goodies/pre-orders left?

I just placed my pre-order and I don't pre-order much anymore so hopefully this is worth it.

 

Don't sweat it. Your hooked up. Gotta take care of the heavy harmonies folk;-)

And also the Melodic Mafia folk!

Hey Gang!!

 

A bunch of the pre order posters shipped yesterday and today. A third shipment goes out mon. They didnt have enough of the proper envelopes. So the remaining bunch will be going out on mon. I decided to send all the posters in flat padded envelopes, as opposed to the typical poster tube. In order to avoide the dreadded "poster curl" lol. Jeff and Terry, yours go out mon. Everyone else went out fri and sat. Send us your snap shots and comments. Hope all you like them as much as we do. Hang 'em high! :-) Anyone in this thread that pre ordered the CD , and doesnt receive a poster a week from today. Please email me or post here and ill make sure you get your posters. The signed 8x10s will be shipped seperate around March 5th the latest. The CD will be shipped out to all customers between March 1st-4th. Look to everyones feedback. Good OR bad!!

 

Have a Great weekend everyone!

Love the new look. Kivel often provide a good "bombastic" look for their bands and this is no different this time around for Tango Down.

 

Been a tough off-season for the G-Scallop, but if I get back on my feet and in a CD buying position again in 2012, this will be high on my want list.

As far as the new look, I like it. For the poster design I would have changed one thing, and it is a very minor thing but hey John asked so I'll speak.

 

2 of the guys are in "action" poses on the top, 2 are in laid back "non-action" poses on the bottom. All 4 of the poses are great. What I would have done slightly differently is I would have put one of each on the top one of each on the bottom, mixed up the poses just a bit. Then again, maybe it is a ranking thing where lead screams and lead strings should be first...or not.

Absolutely. Want honest feedback! So thank you. Now....I agree that would be a way to go. One would think. However, the first draft was that way, and it was just off n didn't work. The bands drummer even said the same thing until I showed him the other version. For some reason having either the drummer or bass player in the top right corner just distracted it for some reason. Call me crazy...lol. However some of u hear know what a perfectionist I am. So if I go with a certain layout....its a caused I made sure it was the best it can be. Thanks to all of u for the support n constant feedback n kind words. I truly appreciate it. You have no idea.

    • A lot to like on this release but also some stuff just too light for me. 
    • What a honey Gudrun Laos was and what a Killer track this is!    
    • I didn't say I didn't like it. It's a good album, but I guess after years of reading folks praise for it I built it up to be something more than it actually was. 
    • We already know you're a leftist idiot! Known all around these parts!
    • How are you guys letting horrible songs get into your head???
    • I'm surprised you didn't like it. That's a shame. 
    • It's a mystery alright, although how the band could okay this for release is an even bigger mystery. Also find it intresting that all of the reviews I've read have failed to mention the bizarre mixing and mastering of this record, which kinda makes you question their credibility as rock reviewers.   This I don't agree with at all. The thing that makes H.E.A.T the awesome band that they are is that they've never compromised with their sound or felt the urge to follow trends. We all know that they've could have gone the Dynazty route, making hard 'n' heavy records, that would probably have made them an even bigger and more popular band with the masses. Of course that's not what the fans want, and they know that. We want H.E.A.T to sound like H.E.A.T - and I think they've done a damn fine job of that on this record. I don't mind a bit of experimentation, like on Demon Eyes, as long as it's the exception and a temporarily deviation from the trademark sound. As for bangers, I do think there are some here, but they're all ruined to some degree by the poor mixing job. No, they don't reach the awesomeness of let's say "Dangerous Ground" or "Rock Your Body" from the last album, but stuff like "Nationwide", "Not For Sale", "Hold Your Fire" and "Wings Of An Aeroplane" come pretty damn close. Being the AOR fanatic I am, my main criticism with this band is always that I want them to be more AOR, like on the first 2-3 records. If you're looking for a direction, then this record is clearly a distinctive step away from that. They want to be pure melodic hard rock and not AOR, I think it's pretty clear. Truthfully it's been evident from "Tearing Down The Walls" and onward, but Force Majeure makes it even more evident that no change in that direction is very probable.   If there's anything that this album doesn't lack, it's guitars. The guitars are so loud in the mix that Kenny´s vocals are drowning in them. The album is unlistenable with good headphones, you have to play it through speakers or earphones to make it somewhat listenable. Other weird little things about this record: CD is released in Europe as a f*cking digipak for some reason. Who's beind this strange and unnecessary decision, the band or the label? Also, no writing credits. You have to go to Discogs or Spotify to find out who wrote these tunes.
    • You need to know who you are before trying to figure out who other people are.
    • I can work with Floor,  I like that Northward album she did with Jørn Viggo Lofstad.
