This could be a really nice surprise for the end of the year!

Have they not set on a lead vox? There are only three in the promo shot. The cover did nothing for me, but they could write a good album.

Just seen someone post this song on FB and thought I would come here and see if there was any posts. First thing I thought when I heard the latest song was they remind me of H.E.A.T.

Cool looking band, and equally pleasing to the ear. I definitely dig that and eagerly await a disc this year.

 

I hope Wigelius are still around and along with HEAT hopefully these three exciting new bands release three of the best this year.

Excellent. I want this one to be the sneaky surprise package of the year, and based on that it could very well be just that. Cannot wait for it's release.

What happened to the song "Black Lady"? Doesn't seem to be on the new album.

What do people think of the album? I found it to be nice; very good and solid. I was hoping for a genuine album of the year contender, and that it is not. But it's very good. A very, very good debut and I'm already looking forward to album two and hoping they make it magical. It's good, consistent stuff.

Bought this also based on the songs already available on youtube and the like, wasn't overly bowled over by them,I was expecting a Heat sort of vibe from the sounds of them and although there is some similarity I was disappointed in the end full album :( fav track was probably "someone like you" maybe it was my looking forward to this release that blunted the actual product in the end.

Al Sharpton made them remove it off the album, they are re cutting it, it will be re-released as a b-side under a more politically correct name, outside of that, I recieved this album from someone, and I am highly impressed, I actually didnt even skip through the songs, I listened to the majority of it straight through, with my attention span, that in itself tells you something, that it is fucking killer!!

What are the vocals like on the album.....the guys was pretty shit live I have to say....really strained and out of tune most of the time.

 

Pretty disappointing.

The vocals are fine, but for me the 2nd half of the album really brings this one down. The first half is very safe and solid but nice. But the 2nd half definitely trails off a bit. A lot of potential, and I hope they nail it on album two.

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.

    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave 
    • Gonna post this as just recently discovered them, and loving what they do. I know most here wont care due to not being their style or not singing in English, but as a Band Maid fan, this shit is right up my street. They are a South Korean band. Posting two songs. One original and one a cover (Maneskin, a band I dont really care about) which is kinda impressive seeing as the song is in Italian, a language they don't speak ha ha
