Haha, I know there's a lot of fans of this band here and I'm genuinely happy for them. The band were only ever okay to me but I'll definitely look forward to hearing the new disc to hear what they come up with.

Can't.... .fucking.....wait

 

Ditto. Doug is only involved, IMO, with quality music. One of the best guitarist on the planet. Enjoyed the two previous albums, should be more of the same.

Heavier than Killthec*ntandeathim or whatever modern hardcore band you're listening to this week? You puzzling, puzzling man. ;)

 

Not a bad CD, this one, and I expect fans to enjoy it. For me, I thought it was a little average. Solid for what it is, but average. I like 'Sweet little baby thing' and 'The cure,' as well as a couple of the ballads in 'Made for your heart' and 'When can I believe in love.'

 

Anyway, overall there's a few solid rockers, a handful of weak ballads, and those tracks that stand out for me. It's not bad...

Pre Ordered this on Amazon for $9.99.

 

Did you get this one yet? How is the packaging? It is still listed for $9.99 so I may pull the trigger if it is packaged worth a damn.

Just got it and it's a digi pack with some photos inside the package and then a seperate booklet with lyrics and thank you's so it's a nice pacakging IMO.

It's been a while since their last album and I'm pretty satisfied with 'Epic Obsession', at least inline with what I expected so far, although at some part, this sound like a Whitesnake leftover, maybe they need to tweak a bit by adding a more original approach.

 

Almost all songs are pretty much acceptable, with highlights being 'Sweet Little Baby Thing', 'Till You Die' [a heavy stuff but very Whitesnake-ish], 'Pray Out Loud', 'Too Hard To Break' - a very nice radio friendly track, 'Made For Your Heart' - a sensational commercial ballad, love this one!, and the last piano ballad, 'When Can I Believe In Love' is cool too.

 

The fourth track, 'Heaven Gets Me By', is probably the weakest filler, and 'Ride The Monkey' could have been better. 'Out In The Cold Again' suffered with an average verse but getting better at chorus. 'My Lust Your Fate' has incredible riffs, but the chorus just didn't get there, good ain't great stuff.

 

Production is very solid, I gave a 9 for that one. Musicianship is top notch, vocal is awesome and the guitars are monstrous, replay value is high of course, love what I heard so far, but around 4-5 tracks didn't pass the 8/10 mark, maybe grow with more spins, but great album nevertheless.

    • New song 'Defiance' from the album of the same name.    
    • John says he is still in Confess as well.  This was posted on the Confess FB page about an hour ago: TO CLARIFY SOME STUFF!   Yes, i've joined forces with Crashdiet, which feels very exciting indeed. With that being said, I’m still very much a part of confess. Confess is my high school Rock'n roll band that i sang in for the past 15 years and i have no intentions of leaving or changing that. We're currently working on new music and hopefully have something new to show you guys pretty soon.   // John Elliot https://www.facebook.com/confessofsweden?mibextid=JRoKGi
    • Cool song. If ADV is strictly hired to play keys, it should be fine. 
    • Ooh, nice!  I'll have to revisit the first album. 
    • Ugh... I hate you so much. You know I hate you, right? ;} I've never seen either iteration. 
    • These are sounding pretty good.
