Sounds pretty similar to the solid debut. Looking forward to see if they can step it up a level or two, with a few killer tunes.

Liking the sound of these tracks. Is this another band whose CDs are really hard to find?

I'll take the silence as a yes. ;)

 

So, any ideas when the new one is out? Given that the teaser above was 7 months ago, I'd have expected it to be out by now...

No the new one isn't out yet.

 

The debut was pretty hard to find. You could order directly via Loudguns' Facebook (out of stock) and here: http://www.musicbuymail.eu/index.php?i=37010

I think I'll wait for the new one as I prefer the songs.

 

(When €15.50 was about £10 a few years ago I might have taken a punt, but now it's about £14. Ouch.)

Got a message from the band. Sounds like it could be a while before this is released. They don't have a label for it yet.

 

Hopefully the wait will be worth it!

Pretty decent album, actually. The accent on releases like this always keeps it in a "zone" for me, beneath the top tier. But it's a much better album than their debut. Heavier and much more well produced. The biggest problem is no one track, or a few tracks really stand out. But for what it is, it's a good solid hard rock disc and a good step up from their debut.

    • Atlantis is amazing 👏  Was my album of that year 
    • A lot to like on this release but also some stuff just too light for me. 
    • 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. Other weird little things about this record: CD is released in Europe as a f*cking digipak for some reason. Who's beind this strange and unnecessary decision, the band or the label? Also, no writing credits. You have to go to Discogs or Spotify to find out who wrote these tunes.
