Definately looking forward to this one!

I still think 3 out of the 5 studio tracks on 'Time for Annihilation' are the best they've ever written and I hope they manage to continue in the same spirit.

 

Papa Roach to me are one of the prime examples how rock-music re-evolved back to a more melodic (some might call it 80s-) approach over the last couple of years. Loathed this band when they got big with 'Last Resort' and that stupid rap-thing, but since 'Paramour Sessions' I dig this band a lot!

Wow, that song sounds HUGE! I wasn't expecting this album, but hopefully this is a release to breath a bit of life into a pretty quiet year for modern rock. The chorus and backing vocals on this song just sound massive. Honestly can't want to hear this one.

This band has been knocking it outta the park on the last few albums, so I'm stoked to hear this newie. That first single sounds totally kickass!

Man, I WAS excited about this. Not now...this song is bland, boring and I f*cking hated them on their first album with the rap vox. Seems like it's back again...I sure hope not. If the album is like this song I won't spend a penny on it.

The so called rapping is at a minimum and actually fits the song perfectly. This is a great anthem and I'm sure will please many...don't worry Glen, I'm sure you'll love it.

In my opinion, this would have been the worse song on the last album.

This song rawks.........Papa Roach has put out at least three or four stellar discs, and I don't think this one will disappoint!

Oh, my, that sounds absolutely delicious. Judging solely from those samples, this could turn out to be the modern hard rock album of the year for me. October 2 suddenly seems so far away...

So what do you think about this album guys?

Personally, I like it a lot and there are some terrific songs on "The Connection" e.g 'Still Swingin', 'Where did the Angels go', 'Breathe you in' or 'Leader of the broken Hearts'. But I think the production is much muddier/weaker than on the 5 new songs off 'Time for Annihilation' and the rap-part in 'Won't let up' is completely unnessecary and kinda spoils an otherwise great track.

IMO 'Still Swingin' is probably the weakest track on offer.

 

Really good album, but a way off Paramour Sessions.

 

Still an excellent band though who rarely put a foot wrong.

Doods, haven't had a moment to even consider this yet. There's probably about 20 new albums I'm really dying to hear that I really need to do something about - this being pretty much the top of the list.

Somehow assembled all kinda bonus-tracks via Youtube and hell do I get a very nice Hardcore Superstar-feel of '9th life' - great song! Also liking 'You gotta want it' a lot.

And after listening to this disc a lot in the car lately, I think it's their best effort yet or at least on par with 'Paramour Sessions' and 'Time for Annihilation'.

Absolute killer disc. I agree this is not far off 'Paramour Sessions' at all. Love most the songs on this one, but 'Leader of the broken hearts' is probably my fave - killer melodic rock. But yeah, this is certainly a little more memorable overall than the last disc. This'll rate high for me this year for sure.

    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar  
    • New song 'Fearless'.    
    • Feel The Steel - Steel Panther
    • In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth
    • Yeah sounding not too bad at all.
    • Yeah, I'll wanna hear the songs in full before I pass judgement, but this could be good. 
    • That's a good point I hadn't thought of. Of course the hospitals are going to treat whoever comes in because it's the right thing to do.  Hospitals don't turn away people that make stupid choices.  I guess what I was saying above was really that it's just hypocritical for somebody who is unvaccinated, gets COVID and then heads to the hospital for treatment.  You didn't trust science and medicine enough to take the vaccine but now you want medicine and science to save you?   Insurance is probably a whole different issue and yes, that's out of control in addition to the whole medical billing system.  Those are issues for another thread
    • Cool tunes, particularly the first 'One.' Nice. I'll check this out. 
    • I'll add it to tomorrow's playlist and allow the hilarity to infiltrate me.
