Not really loving "Call To Action," but the others are good.

This sounds awesome! Should be a great album and maybe contender for album of the year.

Wonder what happened to that new track called Sympathy that the band recently put out there? I thought that was going to be on the album.

 

Maybe it didn't get a good response or something. Seems like I remember it being sorta "Riot Avenue" sounding....Maybe it doesn't fit well on this album.

Sympathy was released as a single only and never meant to be on the new album. Which is a good thing, cause the track STINKS :-)

Lol...Agree...Kinda glad to see that it isn't on there myself.

 

These samples aren't sounding too bad to me. I think I like Hell Raising Women better than anything on Riot Avenue.

yeah, hell raisin women is cool in the sense that it just hits you straight in the face without warning, after listening to the previews of the other two tracks I've slowly started to like these as well. so bring it on!!

 

not too psyched about heroes are forever (since I generally dislike their debut no matter how hard I try and don't enjoy those tracks live either) but who knows, maybe I'll like the new version

I liked(not loved) Riot Ave., but do agree about Hell Raising Women being better than anything on R.A.

Cant see the point in re-recording Heroes Are Forever even if it is a great track...odd.

 

Again more hate for RA - imo its a great album, and ive spun it more than New Religion if im honest.....contains at least 2 or 3 of their best songs. Hey ho....to each their own.

 

3 samples sounding good, so looking forward to this.

I pre-ordered this album...Really looking forward to it and really does sound to me from all the samples I've heard that they've gone back to their "Pre-Riot Avenue" sound. Riot Avenue wasn't horrible by any means, but I did think it was quite a departure from New Religion. I thought New Religion had way more hooks and harmonies/backing vocals so preferred it to Riot Avenue.

 

I'm sure having Chris Laney involved again will help out the production.

Haven't heard the samples yet...Have only heard the samples uploaded earlier in the thread.

 

After hearing all the samples, would you say that the more "bombastic" sound that was on New Religion is indeed back?

 

I loved all the "Def Leppard" style backing vocals on that album that were mixed with a lot of hooks and riffs. I just found that album to be the 80's style melodic rock I like to listen to. I thought on Riot Avenue that they lost that formula and it was more straight ahead, no frills rock that just didn't do much for me. And really haven't found myself going back to that album at all. However, New Religion finds itself in my player quite often :)

 

From the 3 samples that were posted for Hell Raising Women, Sound of the Loud Minority and Call To Action, it sure sounded like the bigger sound might be back.

 

Hoping it follows through to the other songs.

 

Hey DeLaCruz,

1 min 30 sec samples are up on iTunes.. Sounds killer!

All Looks No Hooks sounds massive! And I agree with Outlaw.. Wasn't expecting that vibe but I really enjoy it.

Can't wait for this to drop

to be honest I don't think it's gonna be new religion part 2. let me explain why:

 

yes, the sound is a little different productionwise, but what I think will keep this from sounding like new religion are the SONGS. the songs (structures, riffs, solos) from new religion could have been on a hard rock album in the 80s or early 90s and the production really added to this. I find the new songs (riot avenue as well as the new self titled) to be more ''simple'' and kind of contemporary, standard rock. there may be elements of 80s early 90s sound in the new songs, but overall I doubt it's going to feel like a pure 80s release. they can get chris laney back, change the sound, add reverb and gang vocals all they want, the line up as well as the members' mindsets have changed (I mean it's been 4 years since the release of new religion and almost 5 since they recorded which is a long time, so much can happen and people change constantly) I know lots of people WANT this to sound like new religion and maybe got a little too excited or try to create the illusion it's just like new religion because they loved it so much, but in the end I think those people will not be satisfied 100%.......

 

how do you think the band went in to record this, you think they wanted to get back to the older sound because they liked it or because of the sort of negative reaction that riot avenue got from a lot of fans? don't know why just somehow can't help but think they don't REALLY want to be playing 80s ''retro'' kind of music

 

I'll definitely check out the itunes previews when I get the time, 1:30 mins is quite generous and gives a real good idea of a song

Yes definitely - most songs on this album by the sounds of it would fit right in on New Religion! The production sounds huge and you can tell Chris Laney has had involvement.

 

I am exactly the same as you. I absolutely love NR but when the follow up Riot Avenue came out I was left disappointed. The raw production wasn't for me and felt they had lost some of their 80's hair metal sound and gone for straight up rock, in which the guitars had no b*llocks to them!

 

This new one is a definite return to form. 'All Looks No Hooks' is a monster. Big riffs and massive gang chants in the verse. 'Outlaw' is a mid temp ballad if you like.. But still has a bite. Only song that reminds me of Riot Avenue is 'Ain't No Rest In Rock N Roll' - has a fast almost 'Airbourne' feel to it. Still a good track! The rest sound typical Lixx doing what they do best! Big verses and even bigger riffs and choruses. 'Wrecking Ball Crew' is a fast one and has a bit of double bass... Works though!

 

Hope this has helped mate!

    • Sorry, that wasn't really what I meant. What I was really going for is that the songs on other albums seem to me to have more of a similar feel to them, like you can tell the songs for Freedom Rock were pretty much all written at the same time. I'm not saying that the songs on Force Majeure don't sound like H.E.A.T (even though I maintain it's not as good, based on the first few spins, as their previous efforts), but that they sound, to me, more "scatterbrained" than the selections from other records. That's not an easy thing to explain, but "direction" was the best word I could think of.    Again, I probably could explained my point better. I wasn't advocating for more guitars so much, but for more variety in the guitars we get. One of the best things for me about the first two H.E.A.T albums (less so for Address the Nation, but still there) was the subtle trade-offs between Dalone and Rivers and the solos that switched between them (good examples of this include the guitar work on "Late Night Lady," "Danger Road" and "Tonight," off the top of my head). Simply because Dalone and Rivers played different set ups and had some variance in tone, you could tell the difference between their playing (though admittedly there were times where Eric Rivers was completely underutilized and overshadowed). Because of the the combination of this record's production and the guitars being all Dave, you don't have as much of that, and that's what I was trying to convey.
    • Agree it reminds of earlier material, but I'm much less of a "Hang Tough" guy and much more of a "What A Shame" kind of guy.
    • Skid Row Nelson Steel Panther Harem Scarem WASP Van Hagar Saliva Joey Tempest Michael Sweet White Lion Mr. Big ... are the easy ones for me. Possibly Warrant as well come to think of it. Some other popular ones listed taht I don't agree with would be Slaughter - 2nd album pipped it GNR - always preferred either UYI albums Tuff - really only had 1 1/2 albums so don't count    
    • and the lyrics tick tock time to rock don't make you cringe?? if it was 1986 and I was 16 it might have been just passable but now, no. 
    • Another release that seems to have been completely overlooked here on HH... check out those vids for "Give It Up" and "Love Will Not Let You Down". I swear both tunes sound like something you'd hear from AdrianGale!  Compassion | Akiba Music (bandcamp.com)  
    • I might stone thrown at me, but hear some Scorpions.
    • "One Voice", which is a demo, is the only one I hear the tape "hiss" on...
    • Is that cassette tape hiss I hear at the start of the song? Is the whole album like that or only the demo tracks?
