Crashdiet - The Savage Playground

Recommended Posts

Finally got this disc to sound good - set up my old demon amp with arcam cd and big Senn cans.

 

Hearing the detail now - sounds pretty damned good actually.

 

The beginning of Excited sounds great!! & Snakes.

 

This disc is still firmly in my top 10.

 

I've bought 3 discs so far this year, so it's in my top 10 as well :)

Ha ha yeah I haven't bought that many but I've heard loads on Spotify.

 

I'm not even sure if I've bought 10 to be honest?? 7 or 8 maybe.

They have a collection of demos available for download in their shop. It includes 9 demos of songs which didn't make it onto Generation Wild and The Savage Playground plus the demo version of 'Change the World'. There are some great tracks on offer, so I'd recommend it to every Crashdiet fan on here, although it is quite pricey.

Wait, judging from the sound quality, I thought "The Savage Playground" WAS a collection of demos... :whistle:

 

Seriously, I was all over this. Ran to their site and prepared to get some "new" Crashdiet tunes. Then I saw the price. I"ll be damned if I'm spending $30 for a download of some demos.

Yeah, I was lucky, that I had a 25% off coupon, otherwise I probably wouldn't have bought it neither.

 

Irony aside, I actually think some of these demos sound better than 'The Savage Playground', especially the demo for 'Change the World' :whistle:

Yeah, I've got older demos from Crashdiet and there's no doubt that plenty of them sound a lot better than 'Savage Playground.' I have no doubt any demo from the 'Generation Wild' sessions would sound far superior too.

 

I gotta admit, I've barely played this at all since the start of the year, and I don't miss it at all. Never thought I'd say or think that about Crashdiet, but when you release something that sounds like 'Savage Playground' you have to expect a backlash of sorts. Disgraceful sound quality.

That was my impression when I revisited it a few years ago. Once the dust had settled I realised the songs were, for the most part, fairly strong. The production was still shit, though.

    • I Don't mind em so ill be checking this one out.
    • That is one terrible album cover 
    • From Frontiers: BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl are delighted to announce the release of “Ride To Nowhere”, the third studio album by Inglorious on January 25, 2019. The debut single & video from the album, “Where Are You Now?” is out now. The album will be released on CD, Limited Edition Box Set (CD+T-shirt), Vinyl, Limited Edition Crystal Vinyl (exclusive to Frontiers webstore), Limited Edition White Vinyl (exclusive to the Inglorious webstore), and Digital formats. Pre-order HERE: http://radi.al/RideToNowhere
      Inglorious Store: http://inglorious.com/shop/
      Frontiers Store: https://www.frontiers.shop/ In amongst their touring commitments, Inglorious spent 2018 writing and recording their third studio album, “Ride To Nowhere”. A much darker, more reflective album than their previous releases, the new songs further hone the Inglorious sound – the pulsating rhythms, driving guitars and infectious vocal melodies. “This album is different in many ways. The songs came about very quickly. As with all our songs we start with a riff, and this time having new guitarist Drew added a new and heavier feel to a couple of songs. We wrote the basics mostly together all in one room on acoustic guitars and then I went away and crafted the stories I wanted to tell. For me this album is very personal. I am for the first time writing about a lot of my feelings, relationships and losses...” – Nathan James “On this album I feel that the songs are a true reflection of what we’ve been through over the past few years - both as a band and as individuals. You’ve got the highs, the lows and lessons learned along the way. The making of this album was at a time when we all had our own personal situations and changes to deal with. I feel that this definitely comes through on the recordings and particularly songs like ‘Tomorrow’, ‘Where Are You Now?’ and ‘Glory Days”. – Colin Parkinson The recording of “Ride to Nowhere” involves for the first time new guitarist Drew Lowe, who says “The album is the next step for the band in maturity. Being that it's my first, I wasn't sure what to expect, but as soon as we started we knew what type of record was coming. Hopefully the fans will love it as they follow us on the musical journey.” From the body blow riffs of the first single “Where Are You Now?”, to the beautiful melodies and bluesy overtones of “I Don’t Know You,” from the assault of “Freak Show” to the acoustic ballad “Glory Days”, “Ride to Nowhere” is an absolute gem of an album, showing not only all the influences from iconic rock albums of the 70’s, but also offering the band’s own sound and interpretation. As with Inglorious “II”, the album was mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith). “There’s a lot of variety on this album, more so than the previous ones and that I really like. Sonically I think it sounds more fresh, contemporary in a sense and that goes for a bunch of songs on the album as well. Just the singles alone are different than how we’ve sounded in the past, but still have the Inglorious feel and vibe! Lastly I also think that musically it’s better than the previous albums, everyone plays very tasteful, soulful and collectively I feel that it’s perfect!” – Andreas Eriksson “We’re all really happy with the way the new record sounds and look forward to seeing how the fans receive it. I personally can’t wait to play the new material live on the road!”- Phil Beaver   Tracklisting: 1. Where Are You Now?
