Just heard the first snippet on Melrock......sounds like the Martennson juggernaut steams on.......could have been lifted straight off the Eclipse album (which is no bad thing).

I never got into W.E.T. Not that I don't like JSS, because I do, but the debut just didn't hit home for me. Funny how some strike a chord, and others do not. I'm happy for all the W.E.T. fans out there, however.

I don't know what is your favorite style of rock, but for me this is a Melodic Masterpiece !

From the 1 minute sample I think this one will be stronger than the latest Eclipse and JSS. I liked both albums, enjoyed the JSS a fare bit, I found the new Eclipse a bit too 'nordic metal' (like Geoff would say) in places but still thought it was a good one.

 

Chocolate is great and peanut butter is excellent, although chocolate and peanut butter together is freakin' awesome!

I understand where you're coming from, and there's certainly a lot more members on this site in your corner than in mine concerning W.E.T.

 

Not sure what it is to me... I don't know, a bit too "modern" sounding I guess. I've been spinning the new Lionville CD the past few days, and THAT is a masterpiece for me. Sounds like 1986 all over again. I'm just not much for change, I suppose :)

Nether am I when it comes to change,and I kind of understand what you're saying about modern sounding(I guess)but it sounds NOTHING like modern bands(Hinder, Nickelback, Shinedown) or any other modern group.

Nordic metal lol. You guys make me laugh sometimes ;-) maybe one or two tracks with that slant otherwise it's blissful melodic hard rock.

I Agree Glen.

To me Nordic Metal is plodding shite like Jorn writes now

 

The latest album is pretty shithouse, hey? I'd just call that plodding, poorly thought through hard rock, though.

 

For me, the nordic rock/metal is that gallopy, chanty type of viking rubbish. The Poodles have been known to do it, and 'Battlegrounds' on the Eclipse CD is a perfect (and ugly) example of what I refer to.

 

The WET sample is brief as a sexual encounter with a porn star would no doubt be, but it sounds awesome, as expected. Can't wait to hear this new one.

Wow I guess I like Shithouse and Ugly music because I love Jorn and find the new Eclipse almost flawless and that even means the "Battlegrounds" song.......

Have you heard 'Bring heavy rock to the land?' I like Jorn as much as the next guy, but this is a really, really... really weak disc. Surprised if you had much good to say about it.

    • I like it plenty, they've always had this kind of gloomy side to some of their songs, and they do that really well.
    • I'm becoming the biggest fan of this band. I also like how they chose non-obvious covers. It shows they have a sense of history and must be genre fans like us.
    • I dig that new tune. Nice. 
    • New song is okay but I don't like their metal sound. Everything is too loud and hurts when you turn the volume up a little. Samples on Itunes of the rest of the album sound okay, too. Some moments that are worse than I ever imagined Wig Wam to be (The american dream chorus absolutely doesn't fit and only contains 3 notes and god by your side would be okay if Åge sang it, sailor and the desert sun screams anything but Wig Wam), some moments are quite cool (Forevermore is very different, uppercut shazam is hard hitting and a typical Wig wam anthem). In the end it's too much Trond Holter for me. He's writing good riffs but he can't be quiet for a second. It's just missing the effortlessness and the good vibe in my opinion.  
    • 'The Big Easy' out March 17th.   Press release: Already the first lines of the new John Diva song "Back In The Days" convey what feeling the band stands for. Spandex pants, youthful recklessness, party mood and full batteries in the Walkman: John Diva & The Rockets Of Love bring the carefree moments of the 80s into the present and make them sound like the new hot shit. And can't we all use a little carefree? John Diva & The Rockets Of Love stand for fat parties, passionate stage shows stage shows, but also for liberal messages in their lyrics. Bullshit? No way. So the five musicians give the genre-usual sexism in their lyrics a clear rebuff, for example in songs like "Boys Don't Play With Dolls". "With us, everyone is welcome and appreciated," frontman John Diva makes clear. Good thing. Because I think we can all use a little carefree attitude. TRACKLIST 1. California Rhapsody 2. The Big Easy 3. God Made Radio 4. Runaway Train 5. Thunder 6. Believe 7. Back In The Days 8. Hit And Run 9. Boys Don’t Play With Dolls 10. The Limit Is The Sky 11. Capri Style 12. Wild At Heart    
    • New song 'ln For The Count' (Balance cover)   Tracklisting: 1. In For the Count (Balance cover) 2. Dancin' in the Ruins (Blue Öyster Cult cover) 3. In My Dreams (REO Speedwagon cover) 4. Subdivisions (Rush cover) LINE-UP: Alex Falk - vocals Oscar Bromvall - guitars Rickard Gramfors - bass Freddie Allen - drums
