New album due February 2013. Yum! Here's the first taste here, with the title track:

 

 

Sounds pretty awesome to me. The best thing? No screams. Sure the vocals are not the strongest ever, but it's a very cool tune.

 

And here's the first single, 'Riot,' again with no screaming. I admit the song isn't amazing, but not bad:

One of my most-anticipated modern hard rock/metal releases of 2013. I know a lot of people slag on BFMV, but I really enjoy their heavy-but-commercial style. Both singles they've released thus far have sounded good to my ears, so I'm more than ready for the album to drop.

Temper Temper is pretty good. Riot not so much.

 

It's been frustrating for me with some of these modern metal bands that they tend to have a lot of songs that have a great guitar rif and either a killer chorus or killer verse but the rest of it is screaming or grunting that just makes the song barely listenable. If they left the grunts and screams out and stuck with the good stuff I would love a lot more of these modern metal bands.

Hey Jeff, there's no screaming on this one. Their previous albums there was a lot, but on the new one they've got rid of it all. Unfortunately, they have in turn released their weakest disc. Songwise. Musically it is killer, as always. And production is great too.

 

I wouldn't go so far as to agree with Tim because every spin puts this in a better light for me. There are some great tunes (like 'POW') but no matter how you spin it, it's definitely their weakest album so far. Which is sad, but I do still like it.

Yeah no screaming to be heard here (sadly - might liven it up). Piss-poor songs though. They usually have one or two that redeem them but not here, it's all bad. Is a real shame they can't capture some of their live energy on their over-produced and soulless albums.

My question is this..........

 

why would I reach past new albums by De La Cruz, WET, Vega, Pretty Maids, Hardcore Superstar, hell even Heavens Basement to play this?

 

The answer is : I wouldnt

Good point for sure.

For me, I don't get too involved with a lot of these types of bands because there is so much other stuff to check out and not enough time. BUT if I come across some of their good songs then I like to put them in the library. Then when they come on shuffle during house cleaning day I tend to like the songs a lot....they add a nice change of pace to the mix.

Nah, don't apologise to me. Like I said, I'm disappointed with it too. Should have been great, but it's not. I agree that there are already a lot of better CDs out this year. Anyway, I still reckon it's okay and it does have a place in my playlist for 2013. 'POW' and 'Dead to the world' are two fine tracks. But admittedly weaker than their usual best songs.

I like 'The Poison' (much to the disgust of my esteemed friend James Eagle), but really can't get into anything they did after that ... 'Scream, Aim, Fire' was one of the most over-rated albums to hit the streets in a looooong time, if you ask me :(

I love 'The Poison' and the debut EP, but my overall favourite CD so far is probably 'Fever.' 'Bittersweet Memories' being my favourite song from them:

 

 

'Scream Aim Fire' was disappointing, but it's better than the new CD, imo. I do really love 'Hearts Burst into Fire,' 'Say goodnight' and one of my favourite guitar riffs of all time, 'Forever and Always':

    • These guys are one of those mystery bands to me. I think they're fine, just can't figure out why people fall over themselves for them as I think they're average to below average in the overall scheme of things. BUT, that is why I am a strong advocate for to eaching their owning. I'm glad people dig, I just don't really understand why. Anyway, new album is basically what these guys do. Solid, eclectic and half decent... but not great. I did think 'Beat of Your Heart' was a nice ballad. Drum sound interesting too. Took me genuinely 6-7 songs to figure out what I thought of it - if I liked it or not. I think I settled on the fact it's cool. I think. Anyway, I assume fans will adore this for whatever reasons they loved the other ones. Me, I think it's adequate, again. 
    • I'm not in the camp enough to say this is utter shit because honestly, it's not. It is capable melodic hard rock and if I put myself in the honest box, if nothing else was considered and this came along in a year like 1996 or something, it'd be a well appreciated album. BUT, all things considered, I agree that it's a pass. It's all capable, but it's very bland and it's just impossible to listen to this project without wondering why it's still called Sunstorm without JLT. It doesn't make sense.  Anyway, I thought 'Hold The Night' was a passable keeper but the rest is predictable, uninspired and bored. 
    • lol, I wonder who he thinks that is going to appeal to? 
    • I'd be amazed if there's any Tesla fans anywhere that don't like 'Bust a nut.' Is this really considered one of their weaker albums? 
    • Ok. I can understand your thinking regarding one`s favorite bands. In my case it was  Bon Jovi. First album I ever bought was Slippery, liked NEw Jersey even better. Saw them live few times, but after 1995 only some good songs on each album but still bought albums,  since Richie left I cant stand their latest albums or even live. So from that scenario I see that I am not just following my favorite bands regardles what they put out.     But in Tesla case I do stlll enjoy their releases, even those post 2010. A admit that Shock had some filler but also some of their best songs post 2000 like The Mission.   I do miss the heavier  element that Tommy brought. songs like  Dont de-rock me, Action talks.
    • Blondie on the right of the second shot is PERFECTION! 
    • In rough order.....   Dangerous Toys – Pissed Michael Sweet – Michael Sweet Motley Crue – Motley Crue Great White – Sail Away Gun – Swagger LA Guns – Vicious Circle Jackyl – Push Comes To Shove Cinderella – Still Climbing Electric Boys – Freewheelin’ Enuff Z Nuff - Seven Gilby Clarke – Pawnshop Guitars Juno Roxas – Far From Here Kiss – Kiss My Ass Alice Cooper – The Last Temptation Manic Eden – Manic Eden Big Bang Babies – Black Market Tuff – Fist First Freak Of Nature – Gathering Of The Freaks Sass Jordan – Rats Trixter – Undercovers The Heavy’s – Metal Marathon
