Well if Faith Circus eclipses Suckerpunch it must be amazing (and i'll be checking it out asap!!), cos this is one damned fine album.

 

I love pretty much every song, and they sound a lot closer to HS now (not a second rate version like before) which is fine by me.

 

Also production wise this is awesome.

That's some serious praise, Glen.

Just listened to the new Adriangale and Glen is right, really close to Harem Scarem. Sounds good, nothing mind blowing, but really solid pretty much like a Kivel releases, never a bad one, just rarely something that blows me away.

This is one of the best Kivel releases to date in my opinion

I agree! The triple threat of Tango Down,LaValle and AdrianGale= AWESOME!!!

The first half of LaValle is virtually flawless, but tails off badly towards the end.

I think Lavalle's the Kivel's best release so far, I'm about to hear Maxx Explosion, but I doubt it will top that. Suckerpunch is great, perhaps I rated it around 81%, but agree with Geoff that the new Faith Circus is slightly better although FC is also inferior to Lavalle

Thing is i listened to Faith Circus last night and not one tune is 'spinning in my head'....the hooks on adriangale are far better imo of course.

to me AdrianGale is the band that took Kivel to a whole new level. they were the first band to have it all and have it all the time. the early Kivel bands would have a couple great songs on an album, a couple good ones and a lot of throw aways to fill out the cd. when Adriangale came along that all changed. albums became good or great through out the whole thing. the production value got so much better. the songwriting got better.

Yeah, it is very solid. If I was being really critical, I would admit that for me it's missing a bit of heart and soul. Production is perfect, vocals and music is excellent, hooks are strong and every song is a well constructed melodic rock song. But it's arguably all a little mechanical, and just missing that personal edge to make it more than a pleasant listening experience.

I agree. It's missing something to make it special. Maybe with repeated spins it will get there but I don't know.

I love it , and I really like the their other albums. I think this is the best and most consistent.

Quite disagree about their best and most consistent as from what I've heard, the other three are better, especially Reprogram being their best. The new one is quite on par with 'Feel The Fire' I guess but I like FTF slightly better though

Eh? Their previous discs were patchy IMO.

 

Not a weak song on this for me and sound wise its HS with a small DL input.

 

Pretty great for my ears and my tastes.

At first I thought it was their best, too. But I'm not sure now. Would have to listen to them all in a row. I think I'd still take 'Re-Program' too. And I did like the 3rd disc too. Though there were a couple of fillers, and there are no fillers on the new disc. Like I said, it's a perfectly structured disc... I just wish it didn't feel so clinical to me.

That's what you call "overthinking it". :P

Right?!! Leave it to Geoffery to unnecessarily complicate something so simple.

    • But we're solving America's problems here. 
    • Earth, Wind & Fire are one of my all-time favourite bands, and the only album I ever owned, for the longest time, was The Essential Earth, Wind & Fire. Not the genre you were probably hoping to discuss, but it was the first one that came to mind. 
    • New song 'Games We Play'. Not bad. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the upcoming release of "Brothers In Arms", the new Sunstorm album, the second to feature new lead vocalist Ronnie Romero (Michael Schenker, Lords of Black). Romero’s debut album with Sunstorm, “Afterlife” was released in early 2021 and showcased a rejuvenation of Sunstorm's previous musical formula, mixing Melodic Rock/AOR with more '70s oriented hard rock, ala Rainbow (for which Romero performed as singer). That recipe is perfected on "Brothers In Arms" with new guitarist Luca Princiotta (Doro, Blaze) joining the lineup of Romero, bassist Nik Mazzucconi, drummer Michele Sanna, and keyboardist Alessandro Del Vecchio.  Prior to the writing and recording of 2021's "AfterLife", in discussions with producer and songwriter Alessandro Del Vecchio it was decided that moving the musical style of the next Sunstorm album to the more melodic AOR sound of the early records was what everyone wanted. Romero, with his powerful vocal style, was the ideal fit to deliver the goods for the music. "Afterlife", the then new Sunstorm album, caught many in the melodic rock fanbase by surprise as it, for obvious reasons, arrived with a lot of history and expectations. But for his first foray into melodic hard rock territory, Romero delivered outstanding results on “Afterlife” and you are in for a threat on this new album which offers elements of the more melodic sound of Rainbow and Deep Purple mixed with the sound of Foreigner and Classic Melodic Rock. "To anyone who likes the brand of heavy and power metal frequently displayed by the likes of Jorn Lande and Magnus Karlsson, or anyone who likes their AOR bigger and heavier, this is made to order." - Sonic Perspectives "“Afterlife” stands pretty tall in its own right, and Ronnie Romero stands as tall as he ever has." - Metal Temple "I can't help but think that the addition of Ronnie Romero on vocals and a batch of songs that are both fast paced and melodically driven has helped to pump a new energy into the project. Afterlife shows that there is still plenty of life in SUNSTORM!" - KNAC.com After the warm reception to "Afterlife", it was quickly decided that a follow-up was in order and thus in the latter half of 2021 and into early 2022, "Brothers In Arms" was crafted. For those who enjoyed the previous release, prepare for another sonic delight!  Tracklisting: 1.    Brothers In Arms 2.    Games We Play 3.    I’ll Keep Holding On 4.    I Will Remember 5.    No Turning Back 6.    Back My Dreams 7.    Taste Of Heaven 8.    Lost In The Shadows Of Love 9.    Hold The Night 10.    Miracle 11.    Living Out Of Fear Line-Up: Ronnie Romero - Vocals Luca Princiotta - Guitars Alessandro Del Vecchio - Keyboards, backing vocals Nik Mazzucconi - Bass Michele Sanna - Drums
