Tigertailz - Knives EP


Stefan

Recommended Posts

I am a massive Tailz fan and I have absolutely no interest in this.

From what I have been reading, Jay Pepper is a real douche, which is why so many of the band have left.

Kim, Ace and Sarah all left because of him.

 

I had no interest when Steevi tried to use the name a few years back, and I actually like Steevi, so this new version is in no way shape or form gonna be considered as Tigertailz for me.

Matt is a decent enough bloke, and has been in the band before, but that still doesnt give it any real credibility without the two main people being in the band. Kim made Tigertailz go from sounding like a bargain basement band, to a legitimate rock band that could stand toe to toe with the yanks sonically, and Pepsi was the true creative force in the band. I genuinely think they should have called it a day after he died.

Agree.

 

I agree with your right to not consider this a true Tigertailz album--though personally I think there's plenty of that patented Tigertailz sound present--but I disagree that this is nothing special. I've been playing the hell out of this EP for several weeks now and love damn near every second of it. (Just posted my full review for Hardrock Haven up in the "Shout" section, by the way.)

This song sounds (OK), but I hope it's not the best track.

It's not. "Bite the Hand," "Spit It Out," and especially "Punched in the Gutz" are all better.

I don't mind it would. Love to hear the full EP. Not as much as I'd love to hear a new White Widdow disc, but I would like to hear it. :)

So I get to take a quick listen to this one, and without high expectation, I think it's a good EP and perhaps the quality is as good as the new SKID ROW. Agree that 'Shoe Collector' isn't the best track, in fact it's an okay tune and I prefer the anthemic 'One Life' or 'Bite The Hand', the riffs are fantastic! 'Spit It Out' is a nice commercial-laden track, and 'Punched In The Gutz' is quite average and for me, it's the weakest track here. Production wise is great, musicianship hm well quite so-so, I think maybe Jules fits more with Widdow but he did an okay job.

Yeah, I though this was really good too. I really like all 5 songs and thinks it's a very good, hard hitting hard rock EP. Big riffs, strong songs. Thumbs up from me.

Gotta say again, I still spin this and I think this EP kicks ass. Best release with the Tigertailz name in a long, long time. And funnily enough, with the personnel involved, it's probably got the purest Tigertailz sound since the 'Bezerk' disc.

    • Edvard Munch's favourite band.
    • Debut album 'Portraits' out May 31.   From Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group:   The band was founded a decade ago under the name ”Alex Mari & The Lovers”, with the aim of writing original material. Meanwhile, in order to create good chemistry between the members, the group began playing together on several live shows, performing cover songs of legendary international artists just like Queen, Toto, Police and AC/DC.   After few line-up changes, the band was finalized with three members: Alex Mari  (Michele Luppi Band, Barock Project, Ophiura, plus guest appearances as studio backing vocalist with Rhapsody of Fire) on vocals, Gianluca Pisana on drums and backing vocals, and Sebastiano Barbirato on guitar and backing vocals. For their debut album, they established their new identity with the name, Night Pleasure Hotel.   The first studio chapter of this very promising trio offers a perfect slice of classic American AOR, reminiscent of Survivor (Bickler era), Foreigner, Prism and Toto. The album features contributions from talented special guest stars –  Michele Luppi (Whitesnake), Luca Zabbini (Barock Project, PFM), Paolo Caridi (Ellefson-Soto, Reb Beach, Geoff Tate, Krell), Gianluca Tagliavini (PFM), Roberto Galli (Michele Luppi’s Heaven, Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire) and Iarin Munari (Red Canzian, Roberto Vecchioni, Paolo Vallesi).   Night Pleasure Hotel are sure to become one of the best newcomers of the current melodic rock scene, thanks to their infectious sound, mixed and mastered by Roberto Priori (Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire, Raintimes, StreetLore).   The release of ”Portraits” is scheduled for May 31, 2024 via Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group. The CD booklet features introductory liner notes written by Samuele Mannini (Melodicrock.it), while cover art and CD graphics have been developed by Aeglos Art (Wheels Of Fire, Platens, StreetLore, Raintimes, Room Experience, Nightblaze).    The first single of the album, ”Just This Once”, will be launched with an official video on March 28, 2024.   Tracklist:   01. Niko 02. Just This Once 03. We Say Goodbye 04. Walking Through The Horizon 05. You And I 06. Sweet Melodies Of Rain 07. Shivers 08. What I Feel 09. Julia  10. Suddenly 11. For You 12. Quella Sera (Bonus Track)   Night Pleasure Hotel is:   Alex Mari: Lead Vocals, Backing Vocals, Bass, Guitar, Keyboards Sebastiano Barbirato: Guitar, Bass, Backing vocals Gianluca Pisana: Drums, Piano, Backing Vocals
    • Queen Shrike = Queensryche 👍
    • and the new Gunship cd maybe not so much AOR but damn good stuff
    • I've enjoyed pretty much all of their output thus far..inc this  
    • First I've heard of these guys.  A bit of a Danny Wilde vibe on vocals for me.  I like it.
    • New song 'Give The Night Away'.    
    • I can't remember the ins and outs of it, but last year he put up a tweet about how anyone who does cover songs is unoriginal and have no talent, and he would rather listen to the original. I have no issue with the second part of his statement as that is all down to personal taste, but for him to call out bands as unoriginal and lacking talent when bands he listens to have done covers is quite laughable. Every time he posts shit like that I reply and he always ignores me as he knows he is chatting shit. He does it with wrestling as well. Called someone out for instulting a woman wrestler, and saying it's unacceptable to insult wrestlers like that. Pointed out he always calls Brock Lesnar a gorilla and he he should practice what he preaches .. ignored again As I say, always has to pretend he knows everything, but always gets caught out.
