This is former Stabbing Westward frontman Chris Halls new band the Dreaming, they are not anything like SW, but they rock pretty good, might even be on the more melodic side.

Sounds pretty good to me. I like it. Do they have an album out?

 

They have 2 albums out, Etched In Blood, and this new one which this songs from simply called Puppet, he sings alot of the same psycho ex girlfriend stalking, deeply disturbed lyrics that he does in SW, only with a more modern happier sounding band behind it! it's fucking great

I don't find the sound is far removed from classic Stabbing Westward, very intense stuff. Always loved Christopher Hall's voice. SW's last self titled release in like 2001 or so was fantastic. The tracks 'Angel' and 'I Remember' were fantastic.

the only problem was Chris was the only SW member who wanted to conitnue on that path, the rest of the band wanted to head a diferent direction with their sound, which is why you now have Chris in this band, and never to hear a SW reunion in our lifetime, so gotta love The Dreaming.

Dood, I know you spend a lot of time recommending bands that I am actually a member of, or albums that I actually produced, or bands with my brother in it. Even bands that live in my house. I like this way you roll, but before this thread I had actually never heard of The Dreaming, and on Friday I heard their 'Puppet' album. Very good stuff. Very strong modern hard rock with good tunes and some really cool commercial choruses. Legitimately good stuff. So I thank you for the recommendation. Keep 'em coming.

it's just that Geoff, before we met, I thought I knew what music was, it's just that nobody else did, now someone does, I have to intensify my search on this type of music, I have plenty of other people that listen to the other kind of music I like, I just read what they post, it gives me time to comb over the other kind I like, to think heres a band that came from the ashes of a band you have a cd of you played frisbee with, and

thought sucked,what does that tell you, yeah Puppets a bad mother fucker, and your right Zacharyamelie, the reason this band sounds like that last SW, was simple, Chris wrote the bulk of that album, the band members started leaving, complaining, that was what began their breakup, I think this band does this music much better, it fits them, it's not as industrial, I didnt really care a whole lot for that final SW disc, I guess im more into Ungod, type stuff, but Puppet is fucking killer.

A fucking wicked song by Chris Hall and now featuring 2 other members of Stabbing, probably my favorite song by them so far.

    • How did I not think of this one?! Brilliant album and the project just tanked afterwards...
    • I don't. Hate it with a passion. Even that is so 1986. Retire Tesla please. You are an embarrassment now.

Rattle The Cage  4:42 Band members: David Shaw - lead vocals, bass George Giannoulis - lead guitar, vocals Alex Rude - guitar, vocals Erik Fehrenbach - drums, vocals Produced by Streetlight Circus Recorded at Snake Mountain Studios - Monroe, New York Mixed and Mastered by Bob St. John for PDQ Productions Bio: Born in New York City, raised on rock ‘n’ roll, Streetlight Circus has become a fist-raising juggernaut.  With two independently-released full-length albums and one EP, consistent touring in the United States and overseas, invites to major American rock festivals, and bills shared with countless venerated artists, Streetlight Circus has become a name synonymous with the new wave of hard rock. The band's new album, Super Fine Sugar, represents a huge leap forward for the hard-hitting quartet. Streetlight Circus showcases the urgent songwriting and soaring vocals of David Shaw, the fiery and passionate guitar work of George Giannoulis, the thunderous drumming of Erik Fehrenbach, and the smooth rhythm guitar work of Alex Rude. What’s more, Streetlight Circus has captured the attention of industry stalwarts who have eagerly participated in the creation of the new album. The songs were mixed and mastered by Grammy-winning producer and engineer Bob St. John. Guest appearances are made by Berton Averre (The Knack), Tony Harnell (TNT), Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies), Brian Forsythe (Kix), and Jesper and Jacob Binzer (D-A-D). Streetlight Circus has been invited to rock thousands at festivals such as Rock Fest (Wisconsin), Rocklahoma (Oklahoma), Rock N’ Derby (New York), Wolf Fest (Colorado), and the M3 Rock Festival (Maryland) among many others. The band has managed to comfortably fit on bills featuring bands as heavy as Avatar, Anthrax, and Megadeth and as accessible as The Doobie Brothers, Buckcherry, and Night Ranger. In 2018, Streetlight Circus embarked on a successful headlining tour of the United Kingdom taking them from Wales to Scotland and many British points in between. Supercharged and ready to roll with Super Fine Sugar, Streetlight Circus is prepared to rock stages around the globe. Don’t miss your chance to rock under the band’s big top. It’s a show you won’t want to miss. Watch the video for "Dirty Earth" featuring Tony Harnell at the link below  https://youtu.be/08_IuFTqwTM

    • Such was commonplace around here years ago. 
    • That's an oxymoron-even KarpetRyd knows that !  
    • Checked this out....not too bad but not sure how memorable it'll be. There's a few tunes I thought sounded pretty good after my first listen and do think Ronnie sounds excellent on the album  Songs like Scream and Shot in the Dark both stood out to me a bit.  I thought Last Man Alive sounded decent too. Much of the rest kind of feels like it falls in line with the first 2 singles that were released.  It's kind of heavy which is cool but just not coming off as being that catchy or memorable initially which was sort of my same problem with the last album.   We'll see what happens with more listens.  Here's a link to the whole album:
