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.

I don't even who is an original member, as I've never kept up with the band.

    • This one looks like a fun ride....  
    • I keep sticking with the band but my initial thoughts are that this is basically hookless. I sure hope this was just released as the first single cause it is loud and fast and isn't considered the best song on the upcoming album.
    • GENERATION LANDSLIDE (Cold Sweat / Lillian Axe members) – Ruling The Street Scene (2022) online sources · NOVEMBER 28, 2022     Comprising former members of both Cold Sweat and Lillian Axe, Las Vegas’ hard rockers GENERATION LANDSLIDE release their debut album ”Ruling The Street Scene”. Fronted by Anthony White, formerly of Cold Sweat and Cold Gin, GENERATION LANDSLIDE is a whirlwind of ’80s and early ’90s-influenced American-style melodic hard rock, complete with big hooks, singalong choruses and a feel-good vibe that continues throughout the entire ”Ruling The Street Scene”. Produced by White, the album kicks off with the ferocious ‘Little Miss Lonely’, then ‘Feel the Sensation’ follows with heavy gang vocals telling the story of finishing your day job and feeling the anticipation of going wild from seeing your favourite band in concert that night from a spiritual way. ‘Love and Pain’ relates the ups and downs in every relationship and the emptiness of being alone and ‘Are You Out There?’ is a tribute to the late Thin Lizzy bassist Phil Lynott. Highly Recommended   01 – Little Miss Lonely 02 – Feel the Sensation 03 – Nite Time Magic 04 – I’ll Keep Movin’ Along 05 – Love and Pain 06 – Are You out There 07 – Sweet Ellie May 08 – The City on the Edge of Forever 09 – Me in You 10 – Standing in the Rain Anthony White – lead vocals, lead guitar Sandy Stein – guitar Jonathon Swanson – bass Ken Koudelka – drums   BUY www.amazon.com/Ruling-Street-Scene-Generation-Landslide/dp/B0BFBV9HN2

    • As much as I love the Synthwave genre, I'm not very adventurous towards it. I generally allow the folks here to steer me in the right direction. I don't think I've listened to Dance of the Dead.
