Last album was great and looking forward to this one. I have to question their record company though...they were huge in 2008-2009 with the Madness album. Why would you release a live album and wait 4 years to release the next studio album? Seems that might stunt their momentum...what are they, freakin Def Leppard?

I agree, mate. For some reason they did get pretty huge of that last disc, then to totally disappear? Stupid move... though I don't know who's fault it was. But I'd heavily doubt that they can recapture the buzz that they built with that last album.

 

Good luck to them, though, hope it's a great CD. Finally...

Just completed a sold out tour of pretty decent sized venues in the UK. I'd say the 'buzz' is still there

No doubt their fanbase will still be there, but I'll be very curious to see if they get any more radio play and sell records like they did on the back of the success of 'Sounds of madness.' Who knows maybe they will, but I picture a Hinder-like disappearance from the general public's eye.

That new song sounded far more likely to get 'radio play' than anything on Sound Of Madness.

Indeed. As did everything on 'Take it to the limit' compared to 'Extreme Behaviour.' ;)

 

I'll probably make a thread about this band if the whole thing's good, but check out 9 Left Dead - 'The wrong things.' Modern hard rock in the style of these bands, produced by some guys in Hinder, I believe. Sounds pretty cool

I agree. I loved the last disc but I have to admit I'd forgotten all about them and assumed they'd split. Shit, after the success of the last album just get anything out, no matter how good it is. Works for Nickleback. :)

Finally got to hear the song. Very nice. Very commercial / radio friendly, obviously aimed at bringing them back into the same limelight that 'Second chance' brought them. Good stuff.

I thought "Bully" was a poor first single. The album needs to be better than that song, which is sub-Nickelback radio-rock...

Those are some killer tracks. I'm getting it!

 

Loved their last release, almost forgot about the band.

 

That For My Sake track is amazing, one of the best I've heard so far this year.

 

They are modern but without the bad modern vocals (Hinder or Nickelback). They are notch above many other modern bands.

Good tunes - should be better than the last one, I reckon.

 

Didn't you like the last one? This one's punchier IMO, better produced too. Fewer ballad-type songs as well, but they still do those songs well...

Yeah, I liked the last one plenty enough. Thought it was a little over-rated to be honest, but it is a very good CD, and by far their best till that point in time. This just sounds like it'll be more consistent throughout.

Other way round for me. Thought the last disc was fucking killer and think this one is better produced but very slightly weaker (though still essential).

    • These guys are one of those mystery bands to me. I think they're fine, just can't figure out why people fall over themselves for them as I think they're average to below average in the overall scheme of things. BUT, that is why I am a strong advocate for to eaching their owning. I'm glad people dig, I just don't really understand why. Anyway, new album is basically what these guys do. Solid, eclectic and half decent... but not great. I did think 'Beat of Your Heart' was a nice ballad. Drum sound interesting too. Took me genuinely 6-7 songs to figure out what I thought of it - if I liked it or not. I think I settled on the fact it's cool. I think. Anyway, I assume fans will adore this for whatever reasons they loved the other ones. Me, I think it's adequate, again. 
    • I'm not in the camp enough to say this is utter shit because honestly, it's not. It is capable melodic hard rock and if I put myself in the honest box, if nothing else was considered and this came along in a year like 1996 or something, it'd be a well appreciated album. BUT, all things considered, I agree that it's a pass. It's all capable, but it's very bland and it's just impossible to listen to this project without wondering why it's still called Sunstorm without JLT. It doesn't make sense.  Anyway, I thought 'Hold The Night' was a passable keeper but the rest is predictable, uninspired and bored. 
    • lol, I wonder who he thinks that is going to appeal to? 
    • I'd be amazed if there's any Tesla fans anywhere that don't like 'Bust a nut.' Is this really considered one of their weaker albums? 
    • Ok. I can understand your thinking regarding one`s favorite bands. In my case it was  Bon Jovi. First album I ever bought was Slippery, liked NEw Jersey even better. Saw them live few times, but after 1995 only some good songs on each album but still bought albums,  since Richie left I cant stand their latest albums or even live. So from that scenario I see that I am not just following my favorite bands regardles what they put out.     But in Tesla case I do stlll enjoy their releases, even those post 2010. A admit that Shock had some filler but also some of their best songs post 2000 like The Mission.   I do miss the heavier  element that Tommy brought. songs like  Dont de-rock me, Action talks.
    • Blondie on the right of the second shot is PERFECTION! 
    • In rough order.....   Dangerous Toys – Pissed Michael Sweet – Michael Sweet Motley Crue – Motley Crue Great White – Sail Away Gun – Swagger LA Guns – Vicious Circle Jackyl – Push Comes To Shove Cinderella – Still Climbing Electric Boys – Freewheelin’ Enuff Z Nuff - Seven Gilby Clarke – Pawnshop Guitars Juno Roxas – Far From Here Kiss – Kiss My Ass Alice Cooper – The Last Temptation Manic Eden – Manic Eden Big Bang Babies – Black Market Tuff – Fist First Freak Of Nature – Gathering Of The Freaks Sass Jordan – Rats Trixter – Undercovers The Heavy’s – Metal Marathon
