Skid Row

What happened to releasing 3 EPs in the span of every 4 to 6 months? "United World Rebellion: Chapter One" came out a year ago today (April 16, 2013) and we have no new music from Skid Row since.

 

While I have not been a fan of the band with Sollinger fronting them, the last EP wasn't that bad and I was wanting to hear more. I still think their material has been more miss than hit since Baz left, alienating fans with their obsession with wanting to sound "nu-metal" "alternative" or "punk". I know some folks loved "Thickskin" and "RPM". I am not one of them, as both were lame attempts to be relevant in today's scene.

 

Anybody know what's going on with them and when UWR: Chapter Two is going to be released or did it do so bad that they scrapped the idea of an EP every 4 to 6 months?

New seven song EP 'United World Rebellion - Part 2', set for release on August 5th via Megaforce Records

 

Cool. Thanks for the info. Hope it continues to be another step in the right direction.

Yeah to be honest I like the Soinger era stuff as well, especially Thickskin. I think of it as a different band though, I don't even compare to the Bach era.

I agree though there are a few songs that I swear I hear Bach but the majority is something other than the Skids.

Why EPs? F*ck EPs annoy me. Why not just put in the effort for a full new album and stop f*cking around?

 

I've liked portions of the Sollinger stuff. Far from great, but not bad. Though 'Thickskin' did have some great stuff on it.

Dont forget they released vol 1 later in Europe (and maybe other countries) than in America, and then put a couple more tracks on it.

So maybe thats why there was a delay with vol 2.

Yeah after the Bach era, these guys just haven't been able to capture my attention like they used to. Wish they would just write the music like they used to. I'm sure Solinger can do a good job with it. Don't know if I'm going to be checking this one out.....we'll see.

As per usual, nothing to get excited about. Sounds ok, but nothing more.

All I want is that real Skid Row sound back even if they cant reunite with Bach.

 

I agree 100%. Where did the old Skid Row go? They were pretty awesome with Matt Fallon before Baz joined. Baz just lifted them to another level.

 

The Skids since Baz have no real identity. No signature sound. I just can't get excited by them anymore. And Baz's solo stuff isn't that great either.

I like Bachs solo stuff, but I dont love it. Some really good songs in there, but a lot of other stuff that just passes you by. And apart from the odd ballad, none of his solo stuff sounds like Skid Row exactly either. Still, if I had to pick who had the closest sound to Skid Row these days, it would be Bach.

Oh and yeah, considering the debut album was pretty much already written before Bach was in the band, the sound of the band had nothing to do with him, so why cant they recapture some of that?

Bachs vocals were something else, but musically the band had the chops before he got there.

I guess I'll be the odd man out, 'cause I like that new song. Granted, it's not even close to Baz-era Skid Row quality, but for a heavy-edged hard rock song, it sounds pretty good to me.

Yeah, I heard some of the stuff from the Matt Fallon years. Even though they were crappy demo, that stuff sounded better than what they have been putting out for the past few years. I wish they would go back to writing the style their known for. They don't need Baz as long as they can write some killer music. Hell, they could even hook back up with Fallon. He didn't sound that bad on some of the early versions off their first release.

    • So I'm currently on my summer hols which gives me time to catch up on alot of music I have missed or haven't listened to in a while. Anyway yesterday I was listening to Broadside - Hotel Bleu ( great album btw). Now I have Spotify set to play similar artists once the album finishes and Honey Revenge were one of those artists. Liked the song I heard so checked out their debut album Retrovision and it's a cracker. The duo are Devin Papadol- vocals and Devin Lloyd - guitar and together have produced and album full of perfect pop rock. Highly Recommended and well worth a listen.   Full album ...  
    • So, I'll ask again, but what's the go here mate? Are they your lyrics?  Do you type in a specific genre and instrument combination? What about the melody? I should check it out myself when I have time, but I'm very curious. 
    • Nice, they love "Tiger Tiger" in Japan.  
    • VIXEN Announces New Singer ROSA LARICCHIUTA June 21, 2024 VIXEN has recruited Rosa Laricchiuta(TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, HEADPINS),as the band's new lead singer following the recent departure of Lorraine Lewis. Laricchiuta made her live debut with VIXEN earlier tonight (Friday, June 21) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California alongside GREAT WHITE, SLAUGHTER and QUIET RIOT.   Laricchiuta is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Montreal, Quebec. After several years cutting her teeth with live shows, she auditioned for the third season (2015) of "La Voix", Quebec's version of the popular TV show "The Voice". Rosa had an instant connection with the legendary francophone rocker Éric Lapointe and chose him as her coach. Rosa showed a solid stage presence, with remarkable intensity and a voice so powerful it sent her straight to the Grand Finale where she shared the stage with DEF LEPPARD, Kelly Clarkson, Jean Leloup and her idol, Melissa Etheridge. She left a lasting impression as she won over millions of viewers who named her the new "it" female rocker of Quebec.   She then released one album in the Quebec market before beginning work on her first English language album in 2016. That album, "Free", was released the following year and at the end of the year, she joined the popular American band TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRAfor their annual mega tour of the United States. Laricchiuta's hard rock project BLACK ROSE MAZE released its self-titled debut album in August 2020 via Frontiers Music Srl. VIXEN has more than a dozen more shows scheduled for the summer and early fall.
    • Huh, how odd. I just checked and it's indeed there. I guess I'm blind.
    • I see them both in my spotify?! Remixes sound good and better than originals to me!
    • How odd. It appears that only the first remixed album is on Spotify. I usually don't bother to listen to remixes, but I think I'll check this one out.
    • Apparently the first two H.E.A.T albums have been remixed and are on YouTube. I personally don't think there was anything wrong with the originals and some of these new versions seem overproduced to me, but I'll let you all judge for yourselves.  
    • It's average for them IMO. Good to hear that singer again though. She was on a lot of their songs a few years ago when they were at their best.
