Good stuff!

From FB:

Defying Giants is a poprock band from Stockholm, Sweden. Great popsongs with the sounds and feel of arenarock makes a perfect match and an exciting blend of modern meets timeless.
Martin and Ivan met at the royal collage of music in Stockholm while studying music and media production.
They both have their roots in the Swedish rock scene and with a similar taste in music and dedication to hard work they wanted to create something new together. Their first single "Wanna Go Home" is an uptempo popsong with the big orchestral strings and percussion mixed with synths and a traditional rock setup. It is a song where the simplicity of a four chord progression tangels with a playful string arrangement that just reveals more every time you listen.
They both started practicing music at an early age and the whole production of Defying Giants is done solely of the two.
A shared interest in great music and production brought the two guys together. Ivan Höglund and Martin Rhyder make a true face of the modern musician with a mixture of hard work, talent and DIY attitude.
It all starts with two guys in the studio and we'll see where it ends up...

I liked the second song a whole lot better than the first.......the first just didn't grab me. I hear these songs and immediately think that I would just put on the new Colton Dixon CD in its place. They're ok....but nothing I would buy *and that's saying a lot* lol

 

But....as always, thank you for posting Stefan. I think you do an absolutely AMAZING job of keeping these forums moving and current. Rawk on!

The only downfall to this disc imho is that it is only a digital release. I know the kids are doing what they can and storing all your mp3 downloads in the cloud is the wave of the future, but just not mine...

 

Still like the album and the communications with the band are pleasant enough!

Great promo shot! Except for it not being great, at all.

 

I basically agree with Jim's assessment. Not a fan of that first song one bit at all. But I definitely dig the second one. I'll check this out.

Sorry Stef, only just read this thread...Yeah, dig the 'Free Your Mind' and 'Wanna Go Home' tracks a lot. As mentioned, shame this is only digital as I would have invested.

    • Ok Cody, It was 41 vs 330. It's now 63 vs 335, so we're making ground, but you need to fire up and make some contributions. It's your thread and that's what you're hanging by at the moment with the big guy.

    • A little sumthin sumthin from the coolest band east of the Rockies.    Show them some well deserved lovin' fellas!   FuZZrd thanks readers w/an advance download of “Pins & Needles” from their debut LP Near Life Experience being released globally December 10, 2021. From Steve Karas (w/slight edits): FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 3, 2021 FuZZrd's debut studio album: Near Life Experience available December 10, 2021 Download “PINS & NEEDLES” Here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/ Album teaser video: https://bit.ly/FuZZrdAlbumTeaser Pre-order: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com/ Upcoming live show at Minneapolis’ The Southern Theatre December 11, 2021 –  https://southerntheater.org/ Minneapolis, MN – FuZZrd would like to share their gratitude to the sites readers and presents a free download of the song “Pins & Needles” in advance of the band’s debut studio album Near Life Experience which is being released on December 10, 2021. To access the free download or preview the song, click here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/.   FuZZrd guitarist and vocalist Brett Petrusek shares, “Pins and Needles is a personal favorite. It's a song about loss and the overwhelming feeling of anxiety that can often ensue. If you've ever felt so wound up that your skin is crawling you may relate. For me, it's sonically intriguing, it's mysterious and the chorus hits just right. It's wickedly fun to play on guitar, too!" The debut album can be pre-ordered at a discounted price here: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com. The band will perform the day following release day alongside Johnny O' Neil (of Dare Force fame) and up and comers, The Issue at The Southern Theatre in Minneapolis, MN. Tickets for the appearance can be purchased by visiting https://southerntheater.org/. Petrusek reflects, “I'm so very proud of what we have accomplished this past year. It's gratifying to see and hear Near Life Experience in its completed form. It's a powerhouse and definitely fits in the category of ‘album I've always wanted to make’. The chemistry with our producer Jeremy Tappero continued to flourish and we all grew as musicians. I love the songs and sound we've created. It's fresh, and new, and noticeably doesn't chase trends. It stays true to its heavy rock roots. It's so awesome to be a part of FuZZrd coming to life, playing live shows, and sharing our music. The whole of what we have created is truly rewarding. I'm totally grateful to have this group." Bassist and background vocalist Robert Berg states, “Substance of structure. A collection of songs that in my view captures what's truly important for fans of multigenerational hard rock. I love the upfront guitars and inspired solos. There's a maturity in the vocal melodies that catapults the meaningful lyrical content. It was inspiring to witness. Every member brought what was necessary; when necessary. I believe we just barely dipped our toes into what's possible with our current guitar duo's musical chemistry. Special, special, special thanks to Producer Jeremy Tappero. I tell him all the time that my favorite moments in life are sitting in the chair next to him and laying it down. He's a true mentor who seemingly always knows what's right for the band. Brett is quite forward thinking and never short of ideas. FuZZrd will build on the experience and continue to make the rock pound." Guitarist and background vocalist Eric Fairchild offers, “Discovering the chemistry and camaraderie of FuZZrd has been the highlight of a truly chaotic year and a half. Being able to connect and collaborate on new music has been so fulfilling. I’m really proud of the work we’ve put in, and the album that has emerged as a result. The songs on Near Life Experience have been able to capture so many feelings that have been otherwise difficult to express. Plus, it’s always fun to tear it up on the guitar! I’m thrilled to get these songs in front of audiences, and continue to build on what we’ve started." Drummer Scott Savage adds, "I could not be happier with the new record; and it could not have happened without everyone’s dedication and hard work. It’s so gratifying to have this finished product and be able to share with everyone! I’m so proud of my band mates and what we have accomplished. We are definitely fired up about what the future holds for us!" For more information contact: Steve Karas SKH Music -  skaras@skhmusic.com
    • I'm digging this song.  Good stuff.  Background vocals don't bother me at all here.
    • Yeah, my apologies for not checking there first.  Figured H.E.A.T fans that frequent this section would be interested.
