what I'm lookig for is 5 bands from the 80's scene that are different. you know what i'm saying, you have Poison then all the bands that are related to them in style, Warrant, PBF....... You have Crue and all the sound alike bands that came after them.

What is an obscure band / artist in the 80's hard rock scene that had a bit of a different sound that still ROCKED.

Not sure if I should be the first to answer. The ones that came straight to mind were: Cinderella, Electric Boys, Extreme, Transit, Treat. I don't know why you need this.

How'bout these?

 

Saigon Kick were pretty left-of-center. How many other bands had songs featuring a kazoo choir ("My Life")?

 

Warrior Soul make me wanna drink grain alcohol, set stuff on fire, and punch random people.... and I mean that in the best possible way.

 

Kik Tracee had a weird, artsy, cinematic, almost-but-not-quite "goth" thing going on (witness their video for "You're So Strange"), as did Bang Tango ("Someone Like You")

 

Princess Pang were like a Hanoi Rocks/early Aerosmith throwback, with a chick singer. Maybe not the most original thing to come down the pike but their one album doesn't get nearly enough love.

I'll second the Saigon Kick and Kik Tracee!

Certainly Saigon Kick, a brilliant band that was different. Lillian Axe, not that obscure but had a certain maturity that made them a notch above everything else at the time. The Cult and their albums Electric And Sonic Temple are fantastic, although by no means obscure. Dweezil Zappa 's Confessions is brilliant, funny and catchy hair rock with sme killer guitar work. Point Of Power - It's About Time an obscure Canadian indie band that reminds me of Van Hagar, pretty decent stuff. 2 DIE 4 from Britain put out an album that many don't like, but the first 5 tracks are killer IMO, very different sound and it's probably dirt cheap to find on Ebay.

MYSTIC FORCE ... Metal in the line of Queensryche meets DIO

LAW AND ORDER... Heavy Rock with a Blues influence.

D GENERATION ... Sleazy Rock with a slight Punk feel.

CHILD'S PLAY .........Just straight forwad Rock

THE ZEROS.. nothing groundbreaking.. just fun glammy tounge & cheek tunes.

Good call. I would also recommend Bad Biscut and Shake the Faith, both of which have a similar vibe to D Generation.

Shake the Faith was so awesome!

    • What a honey Gudrun Laos was and what a Killer track this is!    
    • I didn't say I didn't like it. It's a good album, but I guess after years of reading folks praise for it I built it up to be something more than it actually was. 
    • We already know you're a leftist idiot! Known all around these parts!
    • How are you guys letting horrible songs get into your head???
    • I'm surprised you didn't like it. That's a shame. 
    • It's a mystery alright, although how the band could okay this for release is an even bigger mystery. Also find it intresting that all of the reviews I've read have failed to mention the bizarre mixing and mastering of this record, which kinda makes you question their credibility as rock reviewers.   This I don't agree with at all. The thing that makes H.E.A.T the awesome band that they are is that they've never compromised with their sound or felt the urge to follow trends. We all know that they've could have gone the Dynazty route, making hard 'n' heavy records, that would probably have made them an even bigger and more popular band with the masses. Of course that's not what the fans want, and they know that. We want H.E.A.T to sound like H.E.A.T - and I think they've done a damn fine job of that on this record. I don't mind a bit of experimentation, like on Demon Eyes, as long as it's the exception and a temporarily deviation from the trademark sound. As for bangers, I do think there are some here, but they're all ruined to some degree by the poor mixing job. No, they don't reach the awesomeness of let's say "Dangerous Ground" or "Rock Your Body" from the last album, but stuff like "Nationwide", "Not For Sale", "Hold Your Fire" and "Wings Of An Aeroplane" come pretty damn close. Being the AOR fanatic I am, my main criticism with this band is always that I want them to be more AOR, like on the first 2-3 records. If you're looking for a direction, then this record is clearly a distinctive step away from that. They want to be pure melodic hard rock and not AOR, I think it's pretty clear. Truthfully it's been evident from "Tearing Down The Walls" and onward, but Force Majeure makes it even more evident that no change in that direction is very probable.   If there's anything that this album doesn't lack, it's guitars. The guitars are so loud in the mix that Kenny´s vocals are drowning in them. The album is unlistenable with good headphones, you have to play it through speakers or earphones to make it somewhat listenable.
    • 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
