And you guys wonder why it is dead around here. When you do try to spread the word about new bands somebody on here might like, it goes totally ignored.

 

Disappointing to say the least. And something that never used to happen at all.

 

That's all. :violin2:

Nothin' personal. I'm just a grumpy, jaded old prick who ignores most new stuff....

When I get I do get to the forum with any time to spare on my hands I always check out all the new music threads and try to comment on them all. Hopefully I get to these ones sooner rather than later... :)

I check out the new post (threads) everyday, but don't always reply. Will do from now on, don't won't to see this site slowly fade away.

If the bands didn't blow, I'd reply ;)

 

That's just it. I think 100% of the people here would agree that they'd rather have someone reply and say they don't like a band/song, then have the thread completely ignored. I think this was discussed before.

 

I don't slag on anyone who doesn't like a band I post. It's all about finding someone who might like it. I slag a few bands that other people post that I don't like but at least I reply to said thread.

 

When threads gets many views but no replies, it's almost insulting.

You can't look at it that way. Anybody that even half way knows you knows you are a cool guy. Not everyone likes the same thing. I get rubbed the wrong way from time to time and probably rub some the wrong way as well. But I'm cool with 98% of the peeps on here but I don't always reply to all threads.

When you get the morning paper do you read every page? Nope, because some things don't interest you.

 

It's all good in the hood...now wait for Geoff to start making sick comments about rubbing from my post. He's gay like that :)

I was just gonna say the same/similar thing.

 

I did check out that new Fozzy and was so saddened by its repulsiveness that I lost all ability to chain together a cohesive thought and muster up the motor skills to type...

I do most my surfing on my phone. I typically don't listen to songs posted through my shitty phone speakers, as more often than not, it has given me the wrong impression of what I was listening to. With that said, if something didn't interest me, chances are I won't give it a try once I'm home on my computer. Furthermore, I noticed some of your threads don't have any songs, anyway. If I don't recognize the band or its members, and I don't have something to sample, there's even a slimmer chance of me leaving my tuppence.

 

Now, you are fortunate, because you've caught me in a uncommon situation. I've been away from home for a week, and only have my phone to access internet. With a lot of free time in the evenings, and not much to do, I've succumbed to listening to the posted tracks on my shitty phone. However, there is a triage here, and Brother Firetribe takes priority. Streaming the album as I type this. Sounds great!

Yeah I avoided the Fozzy thread because I would rather pull all my nails out than listen to a single minute of any of the bands releases....simply awful stuff IMO....and like others on here I do not like making negative comments about what might be potentially someone's favorite band...I've learned the hard way that people can get very upset when you take a shot at their favorite band/musician... :lol:

Haha, some very polite people here. ;)

 

Just one last thing on this thread from me. The main reason that I personally reply to every music thread I open, is to leave a trail of what I have and have not heard, and what I thought of it. I don't know about y'all's memories, but there is so much music around and so much else going on in daily life. I see threads here all the time that get bumped about bands I cannot remember if I have heard yet or what I thought of them. Every time I do this, I open the thread and look for my comment to remind me where I am at with this band. If there's no comment, I listen and then make a comment, so I can reference it next time.

 

I know a lot of people here think stuff like that, and rating albums is really gay. But you guys must just have photographic memories, because I find stuff like this is perfect for keeping in check how you feel about the billions of pieces of music that exist on the planet. My only regret is that I did not start rating and keeping a database of music from the first day I ever bought my first cassette tape. ;)

LOL, I was going to say something to the effect the bands blow to, just to be a genius, well bro ya know, sadly I might truly think all those bands suck, I wouldn't say suck, If that Astra disc is anything like the ST disc, i'll for sure pick it up if it is.

Not thinking they are the same Astra. This Astra mixes prog/metal/hard rock. Not a bad disc.

    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar  
    • New song 'Fearless'.    
    • Feel The Steel - Steel Panther
    • In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth
    • Yeah sounding not too bad at all.
    • Yeah, I'll wanna hear the songs in full before I pass judgement, but this could be good. 
    • That's a good point I hadn't thought of. Of course the hospitals are going to treat whoever comes in because it's the right thing to do.  Hospitals don't turn away people that make stupid choices.  I guess what I was saying above was really that it's just hypocritical for somebody who is unvaccinated, gets COVID and then heads to the hospital for treatment.  You didn't trust science and medicine enough to take the vaccine but now you want medicine and science to save you?   Insurance is probably a whole different issue and yes, that's out of control in addition to the whole medical billing system.  Those are issues for another thread
    • Cool tunes, particularly the first 'One.' Nice. I'll check this out. 
    • I'll add it to tomorrow's playlist and allow the hilarity to infiltrate me. 
    • not worked up. I couldn't give a stuff about VH the band or EVH. Was never really a fan tbh outside of a handful of songs. But MM is a twat. Period.
