When I first heard a couple of samples from the new Bullet Train Blast's album, I was blown away! I said yes, this album would kick some serious asses! Good old-fashioned and energetic heavy rock stuff with loud in-your-face guitars, a vocalist who knows how to sing and a tight musicianship!

 

"I'm Insane", which opens the album, is a furious rocker with a superb riffing and a catchy chorus line. For sure, a great opener. "Running Away" is good but nothin' really memorable. It's aggressive but it lacks a bit in the chorus. "The Storm" is a very good modern rocker while "Queen Of The Night" reminds me a bit of earlier Lynch Mob stuff. It has a brilliant riff, it's 'punchy' and has a solid chorus. The best track so far! "All The Girls" has a party Rock N' Roll mood and brings back memories from Sunset Boulevard dayz. The next track, "From The Underground", is a typical modern mid-tempo with some influences from Hinder and Daughtry. "Bang Bang Bang" is another excellent heavy in-your-face rocker that could easily appear in every early Skid Row record. "A Life In Glory" is ok and "Nothing Remains" is another personal favourite with it's groovy sound and the furious drumming work!! "Dead Man Walking" which closes this album is a good rocker too.

 

All in all, this is a superb heavy rockin' stuff with some pinches of modern hard rock as well. The new vocalist does an incredible job here and the guitar work in every track is a must hear for every guitar maniac out there. Their music is simple and they put heart and soul and that's the thing that counts the most when you play Rock N' Roll. They have some 'killer' tunes in this release but I would like some catchier choruse and hooks. Well done!

Very good sound and some cool riffage there. Definitely a CD I'd like to check out in full. Thanks for the heads up.

Not really my bag of chips, probably because of the modern sound, but I find myself really liking the chorus and guitar on 'Dead Man Walking' for some reason ... shame the verses annoy me. th_shrug.gif

    • 'Hail To The Heroes' out February 11th. New song 'Primeval Desire'.    
    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/
