I like that tune. Doesn't look like you can order it from them though. I don't understand Facebook really, some bands sites have music links and players others do not.

 

Anyway, good stuff Lindsay, thanks! \m/

I'm sure if you pm'd them they'd fix u up.

I picked up a copy when they played in Adelaide a few weeks back.

Sounds good. Not 100% sold on the chorus, but everything else about this is very nice; love the verses and guitar solo. Good stuff.

The band did reply to me but they wanted like $15 for the EP. If it wasn't just a CDR, maybe, but I decided not to pay that amount.

DemonDoll....hmmm, I suppose at some point I should make amends with them and buy something. haha

demondoll have this one in stock.

 

It's a CDR. :(

 

Don't want to dredge up that whole debate again, but it's a tad disappointing and I won't be buying it.

but they're telling you its a cdr so what's the problem?

 

Yes, they are being up front about it, which is good.

 

Personally, I'm not keen to spend $13 on a CDR. That seems expensive for any CDR, let alone one that is only an EP!

 

It strikes me as very odd indeed that most Demon Doll releases are silver pressed CDs, yet they couldn't manage it for this one. I find it even more strange that they have gone to the effort of packaging this in a digipak, but still issuing it as a CDR. I quite like Demon Doll as a label, but will be giving this one a miss.

I was out on DD site for the first time in awhile since my spat with them about not listing what type of disc it is and I see they now list if it is silver pressed or cdr for each cd. I assume I wasn't the only one that mentioned it to them so they decided to do the right thing.

 

As I have said before, selling a CDR or any format you want is fine, but just be up front about what you are selling because the expectation for a music cd is silver pressed. And I agree with James, I would like to buy the KS from DD but yeah, $13 for a CDR is a bit much.

Correct me if i'm wrong, but demon doll didn't press this... the band did.

you will see on demon doll that alot of the cds are only distribution, not manufacture.

(ie i don;t believe demon doll had any input on this one, they are simply selling it on behalf of the band)

You are correct! Demon Doll is just doing the distribution here in North America.

Fair enough, didn't realise that. I like what the label is doing, so I'll give this one a miss and keep an eye on their other releases.

 

Lindsay - grateful if you could keep us up to date with your view on the stuff coming from DD. :drink:

I just don't like paying silver-pressed prices for a damn CDR. It's bullshit. Who's to stop anyone from doing the same? Scanning the booklet and making their own "copies" to sell at $13 bucks a pop???

    • I try to give albums a proper go before I write them off. Closest I would say would be cats In Space Atlantis. Narnia was SO good that my expectations were extremely high and the album was average on first couple of listens. I let it go for a few months, then came back to it with anopen mind and loved it. Otherwise I can probably pick songs. God Of Thunder I didn't like for many many years and eventually it grew on me.  
    • I left this comment on the promo for "Flames," and I feel like it applies to every song I've heard from this project so far, too:  "Great song, great singer, but I feel like the compression of the production takes away from the quality of the songwriting and puts a damper on Ken's playing."
    • Vain, yes it's one band i never really got into it. Just last week I spent about 30 mins listening to their most popular songs, I dont know what it is but the songs dont do much for me. But i do like one of their songs a lot 'No tears for you', and Whisper is pretty good too. And a few I do like to some degree, that's about it. 
    • Listening to it now (I know I'm late)... Some starter notes, that have no doubt been mentioned here already, but I didn't read through the whole thread: -Production is overdone. I don't know why, when Tobias Lindell had done such a masterful job mixing their last few records, he would do this?  -I've always liked H.E.A.T better with Kenny than with Erik. Not because I think Kenny is a better singer by any stretch (though I do think Kenny's voice is underrated when comparisons of the two inevitably arise), but for the same reason I prefer Danger Danger with Ted Poley to Paul Laine. Kenny's voice is, to me, part of the sound of H.E.A.T and I felt like it was missing the longer Erik was the vocalist with the band, even though 3/4 of the records they did with him were phenomenal. -For the first time, I feel like H.E.A.T doesn't know where they're going. On previous records, there was a distinct direction they were clearly striving for -- the original self-titled album and Freedom Rock were clearly products of their influences and the albums that followed with Erik Gronwall showed the growth and maturity of their playing, songwriting and the budding production skills of Jonah Tee. But I can't figure out if Force Majeure is meant to be a step forward or a step back. I wouldn't go so far as to say that any of the songs are bad, but there's not a single banger present here, as far as I'm concerned, which I was not expecting. -I also feel like this is the first time you can really hear Eric Rivers's absence since he left the band after Tearing Down the Walls. Into the Great Unknown being an anomaly altogether guitar wise and H.E.A.T II being a phenomenal return to the stage for Dave Dalone, Force Majeure is the first time I've really thought to myself, "Man, there could really be another guitar track here," which might be why they felt the need to compensate with the over-the-top production?   All in all, is it bad? No, I wouldn't go that far. But as far as H.E.A.T albums go, it falls extremely short of the ridiculously high standard they've set for themselves over the course of their career.   But hey, it's better than Into the Great Unknown.
    • Yeah, a few times. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to all the hype. 
    • Ok the title was clickbait, first dislike and then later like would be more accurate but hey, you clicked on the topic, so it worked! 😬
    • As a few others mentioned, musically it isn't too far off from their early material, but the song itself doesn't do much for me unfortunately.   In watching the video it looks like they've got a new drummer.
    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time. 
    • Now also the official video is out, recorded live in front of  large crowd in California.  This song seems to be a real grower. Was actually a bit disappointed after first 2 listens. But still played it few more times. And then it happened - when I was doing other things, without music, parts of song started playing in my head ;-).
