Yeah, how the hell to you pronounce that? My brain tells me "crush" due to the "h," but my lips say "cruise" because I see the "z."

Cruzh+-+Hard+To+Get+EP+2013+band.gif

 

 

From BANNEDWEBSITE.COM:

 

At the beginning of 2013, new Swedish Melodic Rock band CRUZH was presented to the music press. The only thing shown was an image with the silhouette of the three band members and the first single "In A Blink Of An Eye".
The track quickly spread on the internet and both Scandinavian and International websites (it was featured here) and radio stations played it and speculated around the identities of the band members.
Now the veil has fallen and Cruzh is presenting their debut EP "Hard To Get", limited to 100 CD copies.

Cruzh is Tony Andersson on keyboards and lead vocals (also active in Dawn Of Oblivion), Anton Joensson on guitar & background vocals (also active in Eye and previously in TrashQueen) and Dennis Butabi Borg handling bass and background vocals (formerly in TrashQueen).
"We chose to keep ourselves hidden during the launch" - says Andersson "mainly because we wanted the audience to focus on the music instead of us, but of course also to create a hype and interest in the band. Now, however, we have reached a point where we have chosen to show us to take it all to the next level and reach out to a larger mass."

Although Anton and Butabi come from metal oriented acts, the guys shared love for '80s classic Scandi Melodic Rock / AOR sounds and joined forces with Tony Andersson last year to shape Cruzh. All three operate as songwriters and among the influences in their music are Def Leppard, Toto, FM, Winger, Firehouse and Bryan Adams.
You can hear those influences in the uptempo melodic rocker "Hard To Get" (check video), the AORish "Stay" and the ballad "In A Blink Of An Eye", but to me Cruzh has a typical European sound akin Bad Habit, Terra Nova, Grand Illusion, etc.

While preparing Cruzh's full length album, the guys decided to release this EP as presentation, a CD that indeed will be "Hard To Get" in the future as it's limited to 100 physical copies.
A promising advance from another interesting Swedish Melodic Rock / AOR band.

Sounds good......I did pickup the EP's from the band, so I may be getting some rehash with the new Frontiers release.......then again, possibly different mixes???

'Hard to get' is a great song. Shockingly bad band name, but promising EP.

 

I was thinking the exact same thing and I wanted SOOOOO badly to hate "Aim for the Head"... but it's actually quite decent!

 

You know, the more I listen, It's way better than decent, it's good.

I hope any of their future material (on cd) is available through other outlets.

 

I liked the samples I heard from their EP and ordered it directly from them but never received it after I paid for it. I contacted them and told them and they apologized and said they sent another one. I never received that one either.

 

I won't be ordering directly from them again.

These guys are great, would pick up an album from them for sure. Now listening to 'Aim for the Head' - excellent track.

Where are you listening from?

    • I don't know why this concept is so hard for the world to accept. This pandemic ends when we say it ends. It's really as simple as that. As long as we keep shining a blowtorch on it it's never going to stop governing our lives. The obsession with it is a far greater pandemic than the actual virus.  I know people hate when I bring up logical thinking, but we can't just keep reporting all the covid stats as if it is the only thing on earth affecting people. If we need to keep a record of daily covid case numbers, then they should be read alongside an entire daily list of all diseases, viruses and illnesses, so we can see where it sits, in context. If we need to talk about how many hospitalisations there are, then we need a daily list of every single patient in a hospital and exactly why they're there and see where covid ranks on that list too. Same with deaths. A lot of people die in the world every single day. Not just from covid. If we're serious about saving lives, we need a daily list of every single death and what caused it, ranked. See where covid ranks on this list too, and act accordingly. Sounds absolutely fucking ridiculous? Of course it does. But we need to stop pretending covid is the only thing on planet earth and put it into context with every single other human ailment.  It's like the meek kid at school who runs from spiders and has a phobia for everything is currently governing how we all live our lives. If people want to live their lives in fear of this thing, I'm all for them doing that but there needs to be a time when they leave us out of it.  I like cleaning my ears and nostrils with the tip of my penis, but do I need to enforce this method of cleanliness on the entire world? No, I do not. I am scared of losing the 386th hair in the 147th row of hairs on my head, but do I need the world around me to live in fear of hair loss? Why are we all being dragged into this stupid fucking thing? If people want to panic, let them panic, but leave the rest of us out of it.
    • Now this is a fun album. Played it a few times this morning and really liking it. 
    • Apparently your not a fan, we did that flick back in 08, it was called G-Off is RUSSIAN IN THE BACK DOOR, there's also 7 sequels, we are shooting on location right now for his next big flick called, Trudeau Felches the Canadian Bacon, and it's funny you singled that sentence out, whats really so sadly comic is Joe Biden is making Trump look like the greatest leader in history, these people are going to be fighting to re-elect him when this term is over, I really think the funniest part about Trump being re-elected, will be the 4 straight years of silence from democrats in the following years, they are all implicit in this, and all the people who didn't vote for biden on his credentials, they just voted so Trump didn't go back in. egg all over the face, not to mention chinese and russian jizz, face and back
