From melodicrock.com (Andrew):

 

ECLIPSE – Armagedonize Looks Set To Deliver in February
Swedish rockers Eclipse will release their next album Armagedonize via Frontiers Records in February.
I’ve just been delivered 4 songs from the album to preview:
Stand On Your Feet – This commercial rocker has an immediately likable melody and hook and packs a punch while still delivering on those hooks and a strong chorus.
The Storm – Starts with an acoustic guitar before bursting to life with that Eclipse power encased in the last album, but the melodic feel of Are You Ready To Rock. Another really good chorus too.
Live Like I’m Dying – Epic heavy ballad with a guitar tone reminiscent of WET’s Comes Down Like Rain. Another full-class, intense Eclipse rock ballad.
Love Bites – High energy rocker with a chorus that’s simple, but an instantly likeable and infectious energy. In fact, I’d go as far to say that it is utterly contagious with a 100% infection rate.
And these are the first 4 songs I’ve heard from the band’s upcoming album ‘Armagedonize’.
If these songs are anything to go by, Eclipse will have another sure-fire winner on their hands in the same kind of sonic style as Bleed And Scream and Are You Ready To Rock MMXIV
If there is one thing I immediately pick up it is the strength of Erik Martensson’s vocals, which just seem to be getting better and better.
Can't wait to hear more. Stay tuned...

Song sounds very cool. I guess it happens all over the world, but how odd to see him speaking in his native tongue to the crowd and then belting out an English tune. Standard practice, but odd to view.

Yeah I'd already seen that vid on you tube and am hoping too that more songs will be in the hard rock vein.....I liked songs like Battleground but preferred the other stuff on Bleed and Scream.

Eclipse will always be a hard rock project, imo. I can't see him ever doing anything different with the project as he has about 58 side-projects to do other "lighter" stuff with. I like their style, but I remember not liking that 'Battlegrounds' nordic campfire song.

I wouldn't call Eclipse a project by any means :)

They are a fully functioning band and is Eric's main and longest active one.

I think Sweden's going to run riot with next year album of the year contenders with care of the Night amongst a slew of others which may include the mighty Treat.

 

Ah, what? When the hell was this announced? They said they were done after Coup de Grace.

Are they on a Def Leppard kick or something?

 

First of all, the album title sounds like something that should be a Def Leppard album title....Combination of "Armageddon It" and "Adrenalize"...

 

And then there is a new song called "Love Bites"...Hmm...

Yeah I was thinking the same thing RE Def lep. Scream and anger imo was a nod to Sykes (1987 and blue murder). Great band and am looking forward to this release.

I dont have any additional info on a Treat release in 2015.

 

But can you at least show us where you saw that?

Andre, the vaguest poster of all returns! You've been out of action for a while with these mystery posts, mate. I kinda like it better that way. ;) As a massive fan of Treat, it's quite cruel to post here that there is a chance that Treat may actually record again, only to then basically admit it's your imagination doing odd things.

 

Anyway, I thought the Def Lep thing too with the album title, but didn't even put the song title in the mix too. Well spotted. Def Lep all around.

To address some queries herein, the information I have is not something that is available to be seen online. It is mere speculation at this stage centred around Treat appearing at Frontiers festival April 2015.

There's a number of people who believe Treat will issue a new record through Frontiers Records in the near future as a result of this gig.

Apologies to Geoff et al withdrawn for any unintentional cruelty shown through my post.

You bastard!

 

I think I recall them saying they weren't going to record anything after Coup de Grace, in an attempt to end on a high note, but they would still tour. This might just be that. So I'm not holding my breath.

    • I've just revisited the original and as worthy as the above cover is, the original is perfection.     
    • HOLY FUCKING FUCK OF A FUCK!!! One of my favourite songs ever! How did I not know of this KILLER cover!?  I'm not familiar with the album either, I'll have to check it out.    
    • Yeah I'm not completely sold on Brand either. He is very intelligent, switched on and an excellent speaker, but I don't connect as much with him as I do others. Watch him every now and then but not subscribed as I'm not overly interested in a lot of his videos. 
    • Russell Brand goes on a bit too much about spirituality most of the time for me, and he is very slow to get to the point, compared to someone like, say the awesome Jordan Peterson. I remember when I first saw the Sarah Silverman was dong video blogs, because I thought she was pretty great and funny. And then I saw some, and now I hate her. I hate pretty much everything she says, and I even find it hard watching her movies lol
    • Randy Piper's Animal - Judgement Day. Killer track unfortunately not on youtube.  The start of the chorus says it all.   "I'm here to tell you I'm watching you, I'm watching everything you do, GOD knows, 'cause he asked me to".   Job gets it.
    • haha, just what this place has been missing. A religious thread. I don't believe in any higher power, just like I don't believe in ghosts or aliens. Show me one and I will believe, until then.... As far as mainstream religions go, they are all equally silly to me. Defining a 'god' or 'gods' and creating images on them, and worshipping them? Really? Just because you don't know? Christianity is ridiculed in Australia, because like it or not we are a Christian society. Want proof? attend parliament, and they say the lord's prayer before every sitting. Having travelled extensively around the world, I will say that Catholicism is the worst of them all. Money hungry, money grabbing religion that it. Asian religions and much more realistic. Anyway here's the thing. I DON'T KNOW I don't know how we got here. I know how we evolved. But I don't know where our consciousness came from, and I don't know where it goes, if anywhere. And I don't care, because I can't change it anyway. For me life is more about being a good person, doing right by others and living a happy life. I've said for years, the secret to life is in two parts. Stay healthy and he happy. That's it. Worship whomever you like. Doesn't affect me. You guys create some great temples and churches and I enjoy visiting them. Interestingly, even 10 or 15 years ago, not many dared to come out and admit they had no faith. These days, this is common, but rare for people to come out and say they are Christian, or whatever. Jesus was real. His life is fairly well documented. Was he the son of a god? lol If anything he was a magician of sorts. Probably a decent bloke though. Scariest thing I've seen recently was the NY mayor talking about covid and how god has chosen it and people should get immunised to serve god or whatever. Damn, I would HATE to live in a bible belt of the US. Hell, people in my country don't ever really get a flag out except for one day a year that everyone hates because it's now all about invasion etc. I've been through the US and was amazed at the amount of flags on front lawns, letterboxes, and everywhen. You guys care about your country far more than us
    • There is 2 pages discussing this band on Heavy Metal section
    • In an exclusive 10-page cover feature with Jon Hotten for issue #29 of Rock Candy Mag, Boston guitarist and songwriter Tom Scholz explains the making of the first Boston album in forensic detail and reveals that its incredible success came with a heavy price. “I was always an outsider,” Scholz tells Hotten. “I wasn’t part of a scene, not part of the crowd that recorded or played in LA or New York. I wasn’t part of the drug culture; I didn’t know anything about it. I wasn’t at the parties. I didn’t do any of those things. I was like this enigma that came out of no place and it really p*ssed people off. There were a lot of people, and there still are today, who just totally resent me and Boston music. They will never understand what went into that music or what was behind it, or, once it became successful, what I intended to do with it. That part was not pleasant.” Released in August of 1976, Boston quickly became the best-selling debut album in the US at the time and has now shifted over 20 million copies. And lead track "More Than A Feeing" has come to define the AOR rock sound. But Scholz, who was the undoubted creative force behind the music, had no idea that his album would be such a success. He’d struggled with those Boston songs for years, building his own home recording studio in the basement of his house, trying to get them to sound exactly as he wanted them to. “I was going to send demos out,” he says. “And assuming I got nothing but rejections, which is what I thought would happen, I was going to dismantle all of the equipment, sell everything off, and recover what little I could from the money I’d spent.”   Even when Boston finally landed a major deal with Epic, the label wanted Scholz to re-record his precious demos in LA for the album proper. “I said, ‘It can’t be done. I cannot do it without the equipment I used to record everything we’ve done so far.’ It would have taken another 10 years rather than another six months. All of the equipment would have had to be modified.” Fortunately for everyone concerned it was decided that the original demos would be mixed in LA for commercial release… and the rest is rock history.
    • Never been a fan of the band but I like this song and if the rest of the release is anywhere as good you can count me in....
