In The Night

Good song but not as good as the best songs on the last album IMO.

I hope that is not the best tune on the new album or it will be a step backwards. It seems like with them parting ways with Laney and going in a more Raw direction they are trying to go back to their debut sound instead of the bigger produced sound of My Religion.

Sounds like a very good tune. I agree with the sentiments that it's not nearly as good as the past disc, though.

Sounds great to me and has alleviated some of my fears....the last 3 tracks in particular sounded pretty killer to me :-)) :beerbang:

I like it also. I love New Religion so anything will be hard to beat it, but I like what I hear so far.

Agreed, those samples sound like they coulda came off New Religion. Granted the samples are low quality uploads but for the songs themselves I am very pleased.

 

Even that ballad Only The Dead know sounds like something off Skid Row's Slave To The Grind.

I didn't listen to the samples. I am basing it off the In The Night single alone and to me, yes it is very different from New Religion.

I tend to agree with you.

I only listened to the samples Frontiers provided and the whole 'In the Night'-song and was quite disappointed at first. Somehow I'm warming up to those samples though and I'm still (or again) very excited to listen to the whole disc through my stereo a couple of times.

Oh yeah man, try to check out the samples too...In The Night is good but the other samples you might find more to your liking.

Andrew over at Melodicrock.com gave this one a pretty bad review by his standards. I loved New Religion, but what I've heard so far and read, I'm not really expecting to spend money on this new one. It's too bad, they really had a great formula going.

I noted that too. He said the three samples released are by far the standout tracks. Let's hope he's wrong and its as solid as the other two releases. :popcorn:

I'll have a good listen on Spotify before I part with cash but the samples towards the end sounded like stuff from New Religion to me so I'm still hopeful :-)

This band is a blind purchase for me and I've had this pre-ordered since Jesus last walked the earth. Hope they repay me sexually... uh, orally... uh I mean aurally for my faith in them. I trust they will.

Listening again to the samples on Melrock, I detect at least 5 potential killer tracks which is as many as any album this year, so hopes are still riding high

    • 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.
    • Live performance  Honestly, I didn't care for this much upon first listen, but with each play I find it ear worming it's way into my skull...  Troy announced he was taking time off from touring last year, so I'm assuming that's still Steve Brown (Wild Mick Brown's brother)  on drums... Drummer Troy Luccketta to take time off the road and to be replaced by Steve Brown at Tesla shows - Sleaze Roxx
    • C seems low for United.  I don't mind Big Bang Theory but I can only get to a C if I cheat, and take Tables Turning and Never Have It All form the japan version.   In My State Of Mind is a good ballad.
    • Sainted Sinners - On and On  
    • I try to give albums a proper go before I write them off. Closest I would say would be cats In Space Atlantis. Narnia was SO good that my expectations were extremely high and the album was average on first couple of listens. I let it go for a few months, then came back to it with anopen mind and loved it. Otherwise I can probably pick songs. God Of Thunder I didn't like for many many years and eventually it grew on me.  
    • I left this comment on the promo for "Flames," and I feel like it applies to every song I've heard from this project so far, too:  "Great song, great singer, but I feel like the compression of the production takes away from the quality of the songwriting and puts a damper on Ken's playing."
    • Vain, yes it's one band i never really got into it. Just last week I spent about 30 mins listening to their most popular songs, I dont know what it is but the songs dont do much for me. But i do like one of their songs a lot 'No tears for you', and Whisper is pretty good too. And a few I do like to some degree, that's about it. 
    • Listening to it now (I know I'm late)... Some starter notes, that have no doubt been mentioned here already, but I didn't read through the whole thread: -Production is overdone. I don't know why, when Tobias Lindell had done such a masterful job mixing their last few records, he would do this?  -I've always liked H.E.A.T better with Kenny than with Erik. Not because I think Kenny is a better singer by any stretch (though I do think Kenny's voice is underrated when comparisons of the two inevitably arise), but for the same reason I prefer Danger Danger with Ted Poley to Paul Laine. Kenny's voice is, to me, part of the sound of H.E.A.T and I felt like it was missing the longer Erik was the vocalist with the band, even though 3/4 of the records they did with him were phenomenal. -For the first time, I feel like H.E.A.T doesn't know where they're going. On previous records, there was a distinct direction they were clearly striving for -- the original self-titled album and Freedom Rock were clearly products of their influences and the albums that followed with Erik Gronwall showed the growth and maturity of their playing, songwriting and the budding production skills of Jonah Tee. But I can't figure out if Force Majeure is meant to be a step forward or a step back. I wouldn't go so far as to say that any of the songs are bad, but there's not a single banger present here, as far as I'm concerned, which I was not expecting. -I also feel like this is the first time you can really hear Eric Rivers's absence since he left the band after Tearing Down the Walls. Into the Great Unknown being an anomaly altogether guitar wise and H.E.A.T II being a phenomenal return to the stage for Dave Dalone, Force Majeure is the first time I've really thought to myself, "Man, there could really be another guitar track here," which might be why they felt the need to compensate with the over-the-top production?   All in all, is it bad? No, I wouldn't go that far. But as far as H.E.A.T albums go, it falls extremely short of the ridiculously high standard they've set for themselves over the course of their career.   But hey, it's better than Into the Great Unknown.
    • Yeah, a few times. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to all the hype.
