H.E.A.T - Tearing Down The Walls (2014)

What? What's happening with the band? Imploding?

 

No. Eric Rivers left the band amicably. I don't know if they'll be the same without him, though.

 

 

I didn't know that. I knew Dalone left, but didn't realise they'll basically be a new band when they come back in our ears again.

 

 

I really don't think Dalone was missed that much....

 

Rivers is a big loss though. I'm not sure how instrumental he was in song writing but thought he was a great guitar player and viewed him and Erik as sorta the faces of the band.

 

I wonder why he left? From the sounds of it, it wasn't anything to do with personality clashes....The post on facebook just made it sound like he was burned out and ready to do something else outside of the music industry.

I think the main reason of the two guys leaving the band is maybe because this band is now heavily dictated by the major label. To be frank, sometimes it's not fun anymore when you're forced to play a certain kind of style that you're not comfortable, maybe H.E.A.T was asked to reduce their 80s element and incorporate more modern touch, dunno, but there's a slight chance that the two members will invent a new band, maybe together with Kenny ? that's cool too :)

I don't believe the label had anything to do with it, if you're as successful as H.E.A.T. the label lets you do whatever you want cause they know they have a strong and dedicated fanbase. But after I don't know...... how long has he been in the band maybe 10 years?? It was just time for him to move on these things happen

 

And I felt that Dalone leaving was indeed a great loss for the band, both as a superb guitarist and writer

Yeah, I'd be amazed if any label who signed HEAT would want them to change much about what has already got them as far as they've got. It's not like their sound isn't already radio friendly enough despite any "modern" aspects they may or may not be missing.

The guys do actually like heavier stuff too.. they've stated interest in Pantera etc before.

 

Dave leaving definitely sounds like he left due to the oncoming change in style, and I believe Eric has a family now too which probably partly influenced his decision..

We must remember one thing, for major label, decent sales wasn't considered success, for our genre, selling 10-20k albums is surely spectacular, but major label is aiming maybe at least 100k so if they need to switch the flick to pursue a larger audience, then definitely their signature sound might have to be tweaked.

 

But whatever the reasons is, I'm quite stoked to see a chance for a small reunion of Kenny-Dave-Erik, at least one or two project should be enough :)

They recorded their best songs on the first two albums, there's no way they could ever match those. They still make great music though, and hopefully the next one will be good as well.

Holy shit! I thought I was the only one who held that opinion. Nice to know someone what with some sense.

Seems to be that Dave Delone is coming back to H.e.a.t :)

 

They posted something on Facebook with Dave and Erik playing together and Erik said to welcome him back to the band.

 

Great news.

That's an unexpected move but who knows in 2-3 years, they eventually reunited with Erik and Kenny :D

    • I know zero about cricket, unless your speaking of the darts game, that I can bury some ass in, Baseball will be my favorite sport until the day I stop sucking air.
    • Not gonna ruin it with a sneak peek. Was listening to Bia Bang today. Damn, they have some great stuff, want a new album from them. Gonna go and see if they have anything in the works.  
    • haha, yeah, I mixed up Electric Circus with Restless Gypsy. or perhaps I was thinking the LA Guns. Andy Timmons also did a song by that name. I know this as I wrote the lyrics for it.
    • Yep, need a few more listens to the EP though.
    • Van Hagar is my preferred VH. Over here, we really didn't get too much of the earlier stuff. Jump put them on the map, unless you were harcore 'metal' back then. I mean when 1984 came out I was 14 or 15, so I was just moving to hard rock, getting into Kiss and Maiden etc. I mean I Was Made For lovin' You pretty much put Kiss on the map in Australia, and then Shandi solidified them. So VH never toured Australia with Sammy or Dave. Sammy toured solo, and VH toured with Dave in 2013, but we never got to see the real Dave show. In the end, I'm not a huge fan of pre 1982 stuff. There are a few songs... More a fan of early Sammy stuff, post Montrose. The last album they had contained a few songs. Stay Frosty is great.
    • MLB. Don't even get me started on a Cricket vs Baseball/Softball comparison. That's a whole other can of worms.
    • Sorry Terry I was being a smart ass, you kept commenting on how good BTE was live, so I axed you again, truth is, I know your not lying or exaggerating, because I too saw them in 96 with Tonic, Sponge, and Our Lady Peace, BTE were extremely surprising, as they took to the stage and the guitarist opened with a fucking huge solo, I never saw it coming out of that Alpha Gama Ray fraternity looking dude, blew me away, but I gotta say, after that night, I went from having only heard of them, to being a lifelong Sponge fan, they were mind blowing, and their discs do them no justice to their live act.
    • Now I never said that, why you trying to do that bro? LOL, pretty smooth though, Rugby's a brutal and awesome game, I enjoyed the brief time I learned to play it, it's just not an easy sport to stay up on here, unless it's soccer or darts, we don't get a whole lot of international sports coverage, I mean I guess if I cared enough to go looking for it I'd find it, but I don't care, at all, I don't even care about American sports outside of the MLB this year, I refuse to watch them, and just like all the other leftist bullshit going on, they are too digging their own graves inserting the communist rhetoric into sports, and it may be unrepairable, this leftist shit is going to turn out to be a kiss of death to anyone who affiliates themselves with it, mark these words. sorry got off track there, oh fucking well!!
    • Oh I was most definitely lit, I was high as Giraffe pussy bro, there's shit that happened that one of my friends will say "remember when this shit happened" and I will not remember a single moment of it, you know like the years 98 to 2018, those years, so I am not to hard on myself for not remembering shit that I heard, because more times then not, I'll have heard it and completely do not remember, unless it stood out,, so yeah no bi-polar here, just completely fucking bashed for 2 decades, so don't be mean, or axe me to remember anything.
    • They certainly became more appealing to the masses under the Hagar regime but apart they were much better, Standing Hampton anyone? And yes I do prefer Dave over Sam in VH, the songs were more appealing to me, kind of like the Phil Collinless Leppard. As I prefer the Willis era. To each their own.
