Recommended Posts

From Escape Music:

Make way for a brand new British Rock Band that features some of the best musicians in today's rock scene. With lead vocals from the great Robert Hart (Solo / Bad Company / Manfred Mann's Earth Band) and guitars from FM's very own Jim Kirkpatrick, this is a match made in heaven as they combine their song writing skills and musicianship to come up with this fantastic debut by Diesel.

Diesel plays solid traditional rock in the manner of Bad Company, the sort of music that has firm roots in the classic vein of British hard Rock with a blues element. Accompanied by Jim Copley (Manfred Man's Earth Band, Go West, and Paul Rodgers) and Pat Davey (Seven) who provide the solid rhythm backbone of the band, this quartet can give you great songs and first rate melodies all day long. It is great to see that the guest list includes Adam Wakeman (Black Sabbath and Snakecharmer) and Steve Overland (Solo artist, Shadowman and FM), rounded off with the mixing skills of Tommy Hansen. From "Fortune Favours the Brave" to "Brand New Day" we are presented with delight after delight as they effortlessly give us an array of classic rock tunes.

Tough audience here on HH...personally I will be picking this up...

Heh, tell me about it!

 

Whenever I post threads of crap like Iron Maiden, I'll get zillion replies and 90% of them demands my head on a plate... :whistle:

Hey Stef..All you got to do is keep posting endless threads for Steel Panther or H.e.a.t then everything will be ok ;) Seriously mate..keep 'em coming.

 

This sounds pretty good, typical of what I would expect this line up of musos to come out with. Would like to hear more before I commit to buy though.

Hey sorry for posting an opinion guys but that track sounds average to me. I'll listen to this on Spotify of course but im not mega excited.

Rubbish album, sounds like a bunch of current FM z-sides, and considering how average to poor FM are these days, that is not a compliment. Last song is pretty decent, the opener is okay and 'Bitter and twisted' is again okay. But none are amazing. Oh, and 'So what is love' is a decent safe balladic number. The rest, though, is basically terrible. Most of these songs are instant skips. :(
