Here are two of my favorite tracks (complete) showcasing the variance in style across the tracks on the album, the first being heavier somewhat power-metallish, and the second a ballad... that goes to 11. :lol:

Not loving any of those samples, but I'm sure I'll check this one out. Just sounds like a lot of the mid-range bands in the genre at the moment. I hope I'm wrong, but we'll see...

I must have bailed on the second sample a bit early, because I do actually really like the ballad.


If I'm being honest, I basically hate this album, but there are three really great songs amidst the un-melodic horseshit. I love 'Better angels,' 'Rose in bloom' and 'Falling star.' Three very good melodic rock songs/ballads, which almost remind me a bit of The Magnificent.


The rest? Just fast paced pointless hard rock / metal with choruses and "hooks" that blend into the verses of nothingness. There are decent hooks in 'Whispered dreams' and 'Chasing the light,' but the verses are so shitty and mind numbingly boring that the worth of any hook is kind of lost by the time they come around.


I really don't understand bands that obviously have an ear for melody yet chose to release 70% of an album almost completely devoid of melody. And alternatively, if you're a band hoping to create shitty throwaway music devoid of melody; cool. Go for it. But what makes them decide to put that one or two songs in the mix, which might actually be considered good by people with an ear for melody?


I just think to make it easier, cater to one audience and stick with it. I find it very frustrating; bands who come across really confused with what they want to be.

    • Shows promise in some areas... and in other areas not so much.  
    • I hope they bring the Redskins name back, personally. Not that I care about especially care about football, but because I worked with a super chill Native American guy who has a DIEHARD Redskins fan. I once asked him, "Hey Andy, uh, isn't that name like, offensive to your people?" I'll never forget the look he gave me. He was dumbfounded. He goes, "Why would I be offended?" and points at the logo, "that's me!"
    • Wahey!  Glad to see this.  I love Hugo Valenti's stuff, I'm sure this will be no different. As long as the production is nothing like Hugo 3: Fire In The Night... Robby Hoffman and Steve Ferlazzo are from Sunshine Jive (fka In The Pink) and Robby currently manages Extreme, so it should sound great.
    • At least someone appreciates it  I'm sure Jez will too when/if he reads this. Nowadays it mostly feels like talking to the deaf...or rather posting for the blind...
