I just listened to the entire song the first time. The music is classic HEAT, no doubt, and most people here will enjoy it. At first listen I would give it a 7.5/10.

 

The only negative for me is still the vocals. I just can't get into his voice, which is seriously lacking the uniqueness and power of Kenny Leckremo. He's a good singer but that's it IMO.

Thanks to Kim for sending the track my way.

 

I also miss Kenny's voice, a unique and awesome singer, but this new one is great...just not the H.E.A.T I've come to love. The new singer is great, he's just not Kenny. Now if only Kenny can release something new with a new band, now I'd be really happy.

 

This track seems to have more muscle than anything on Freedom Rock, it's more like something you'd find on the debut. As much as I loved Freedom Rock, it lacked a bit of crunch and Living On The Run...sure has some crunch! I'd be more tempted to give it a 9/10.

 

I can't wait to hear the rest.

I've listened to it three times now...the chorus is super-commercial and just made for radio airplay, a natural first-single choice I guess. It reminds me a lot of "I Can't Look The Other Way" off the last album, ironically my least fave song on that album. I think this is a tad better actually.

 

What's up with the cover though :blink:

I thought that was only a promo shot and not the cover. If it is the cover it's very weak. It's an OK photo for the inside or the back insert, not the front. I don't like band photos as front covers, makes it look cheap.

Can't hear the mofo anywhere. :(

 

Here's a try to show you the way:

 

1) go here

 

2) scroll down to "11.00 - 11.30 fredag 03 feb 2012 " and click

 

4) now skip forward to about 14:45

 

5) ...and enjoy the melodic bliss! :christmas:

 

Seriously, as much as I love the first two records and Kenny, if this song is any indication of what the album is going to be like, we're in for a classic – could be their Slippery When Wet (of course not in terms of sales or worldwide popularity)! Love Erik's voice and the slightly punchier production! The intro is even more 80s sounding than their first two albums imo.

Ah, you're a good man. Thanks mate! (sorry Glen, don't have Itunes on this PC).

 

As for the song... holy wowser! TOTALLY agree about the quality of the new production and sound. Much beefier than before - really suits this well. I'm as disappointed as every one else that Kenny couldn't stick around with the band (one of the better vocalists to come from the genre in a long, long time), but you gotta admit Erik sounds pretty awesome... who wouldn't with a song this good?! :lol:

 

The main thing, though, is that despite the updates to their sound, I still hear the real HEAT in that song, which is all I really wanted. If the full album is like this it's going to be almost impossible for another CD to compete with it this year, imo.

I kid you not, I spun that track about 8 to 10 times non stop last night and at least 4 times today. It's fantastic.

    • Just bought it recently. Waiting for it to arrive to give it a good listen.
    • Bit of a creeper this album, but I dig. Just did a quick little read-up on these guys on wikipedia and seems like there's an interesting history. I knew them from way back when then they released two very solid but pretty unspectacular albums in 2005 and 2007, and then went silent and I kind of forgot about them. Seems like a bit happened in those years, including their lead vocalist passing in 2014 (R.I.P). Also, possibly of interest, Don Vedda played in this band from 2019-2020.  This new album has actually been released without a lead vocalist in the band, but a host of guest vocalists on every track. Amazingly, it flows very well. The style is more mellow, and I must say, preferable to me. As noted at the start, the songs are instantly nice, but really grow and they're some of my favourites of the year so far now.  Scary Kids Scaring Kids     -    Out of Light 1    .    Nightmare (feat. Spencer Charnas) 2    .    The Dark (feat. Noah Sebastian) 3    .    To the Unknown (feat. Vaines) 4    .    Until You Come Back (feat. Matt Macdonald) 5    .    Knock It All Down (feat. Lil Lotus) 6    .    New Morning (feat. Cove Reber) 7    .    Omens (feat. Spencer Chamberlain) 8    .    Black Hole (feat. Donovan Melero) 9    .    I Wanna Know (feat. Jesse Cash) 10    .    Escape from My Reality (feat. MOD SUN) 11    .    Endlessly Yours (feat. Tyler Posey, Phem) 12    .    For Atlas (feat. Michael Swank)            
    • Another one I'm sure I've gone on about in the past, but apparently no thread yet.  He doesn't seem to make a lot of music, but when he does it is awesome. Such as this... Paul Bartolome     -    Reflections, Pt.1 1    .    Fractures (feat. Dave Escamilla) 2    .    Anxiety (U Just Don't Get It) 3    .    While We're Still Young 4    .    Burn It Down (feat. David Bartolome) 5    .    Hypocrite   Easily one of the best songs of the year so far-       From the previously very awesome 'Screaming through the radio' EP-  
    • I know I've posted about this hombre several times before, but apparently not in his own thread. This must change as I find him to be so awesome but no one seems to acknowledge his existence. Not just here, but his youtube channel and reach seems to be so small. Crazy for someone who produces bone crunching quality on a madly consistent basis.  Eric Dalton     -    Playing Favorites (2022) 1    .    Calling Card 2    .    Oblivion 3    .    Head in the Clouds 4    .    X My Heart 5    .    Infection 6    .    My Demons 7    .    Solace 8    .    A Part of Me 9    .    Without You 10    .    Deception     Sorry, I know I've posted this before, but his youtube channel features all three of his (excellent) albums in full if interest permits. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb2I3-4_UvFnWWTcXBBLPYA  
    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive      
    • Welcome, album of the year? Love this project with vigour. I snuck 'Saturday' on the playlist I put on with the kids in the car, lol. Can't wait to hear any of the songs I haven't already heard and showered in love from this. 
    • Did anyone notice these guys released another new album?  As expected, it's pretty weak and more proof of their solid decline.  HOWEVER!  There is actually a good song on it. It's only one, but I kind of clapped and cheered when I heard this. I used to love these guys so much, and still love the albums I always loved from these guys but it's been some barren years. It was good to hear them do what they used to do with great ease.
