Osukaru - 'Salvation'

Recommended Posts

Here's another CD which I think is well worthy of it's own thread. Having only heard the MP3's I finally just read some info on these guys and am stunned to find out this is actually a new, current band.

 

My guess as I heard this was that it was a shelved project from some Japanese guitarist with an American vocalist, from about 1992 or so. Wrong I was. Looks like these guys are a current Scandinavian band, which is excellent news... because hopefully they'll stick around and offer more music!

 

But never again will you hear a CD that so authentically sounds like it is from that 1989-1992 era. It truly does, and I bet it'll fool you too.

 

Anyway, this disc is so good to me I feel it's a possible outside chance of sneaking into my top 10 list this year - maybe... yeah, I like it that much.

 

Check the band out here:

If anyone has a cheaper link I'll hug you as I really want to buy this asap but just made a purchase from Musicbuymail and missed this.

 

This song is cliche, and hardly original... very sappy too... but is not far off being the best song I have heard this year. Perfection to me:

Wowser, and check this out too. This must be from one of their EPs with a previous singer.Awkward vocalist, but awesome song, sexy bass player and stunning blonde:

I've got both the albums and the EP. and what definitely let the the first album and EP down especially was the below par vocalist. The songs were good enough though to make me look into the new album. The new vocalist is a big improvement, although still not that great if i'm honest, although once again, the songs are pretty strong for the most part, making it worth investing in. All in all a good band, although not an earthshattering one.

 

I got all my Osukaru stuff direct from their management company last year, as at the time, as I couldn't find the 1st album and EP. anywhere else. They sent the the new one as soon as it was released too, as well as a few other goodies,, which was a bonus.

I think this one is a good album, I rated it 75%, but it might be worth around 80%, because there are probably 2-3 fillers here although not horrible as I recall. Weaker vocalist as pointed out by Jez could be one patchy point, but I think it's still acceptable and this album is well worth the money. 'City Lights' is beautiful, the ballad 'Till The End of Time' is also pretty neat, but 'Change of Heart' might be the winner, the bold sax touch is stunning!

Yeah, I wanted to get them from that management company but the site seems to be down at the moment. :( I didn't know there was a full debut. Two albums and an EP, hey? I must get them all.

 

I don't know, guys, I really like the current vocalist. I didn't even really recognize him as European at first. I do now, but I think he's got a good voice and is definitely a huge improvement from the guy in the above clip.

    • Hello, me in 2019. I used to think that way but over the course of the last two years I have lost all respect I ever had for the police. In this instance, I honestly don't know. I'm sure there's two sides to the story, but I'm far less inclined these days to feel any sympathy for the police considering the roles they've played in covid management. Fuck them, I regrettably say these days. 
    • Pushing the kids was pretty harsh, but there is no context. Judging by the way she was speaking, accusing the police of groping her friend, you'd think that she was likely inciting them. Doesn't justify the shove of a kid, but in a karmic world, possibly got what she deserved. I hate these clips, and the Avi is a fucking dick. He dissipates what he does by leaning so far to the right that he's as bad as the lefties. The cops wouldn't be detaining a young girl unless they had a reason. People honestly think that all 10 cops there was all in on being unfair and persecuting the girl? nope.
    • John Cooper of Skillet fame wanted to experiment with a heavier style than his main band allowed for, so the Fight the Fury side project was born. As you can tell from the video, it basically sounds like Skillet crossed with Slipknot. Not for everyone but I kind of dig it.
    • You've presented a whole load of easily debunked statements about atheism. When corrected you've taken your bat and ball home.  You had a chance for a conversation but for some reason unable to have that conversation. The you just resort to insults.   I turn my other cheek. 
    • The arrogance and hypocrisy in this statement is what is staggering. Maybe we could turn this into a big collective circle jerk for all the poor misunderstood atheists. I will leave you to it. Enjoy.
    • I know this thread is Mr.AOR's, so I won't impose, but I do need to post this one. I've posted it before, but I do think this track truly encampasses the true meaning of our modern day Christmas.     
    • Nice SCTV reference.   Rick Moranis is an absolute legend and good guy by all accounts. 
    • It's been a while since we've had the Mr.AOR advent calendar.  Nice one. I look forward to the next 24.
