Have you listened to this, yet? Is it any good? I wanna hear "Don't Walk Away," as I'm interested to know if Oliver Fehr can still sing. Dammit, I really want Transit to reunite.

Judging from the sampler, the first half sounds brilliant, then it trails off a bit. But this might be one I should pick up, because that Oliver Fehr track sounds great, and that might have to hold me over until the reunion.

With Elements Of Frictions, the newly founded melodic hard rock label Lions Pride Music, is bringing back some of the voices from the past of the genre in the likes of Larry Baud of Red Dawn/Networks, Mark Evans of Heavens Edge, Stefan Berggren of Snakes In Paradise, Stephan Kammerer of Frontline, Tommy La Verdi of 21 Guns/LRS, Paul Laine ex. Danger Danger and many more.

Elements Of Frictions is the brainchild of label owner and founder Carsten Nielsen; I’ve been a fan of this genre ever since the young age of 12. I grew up on Hardline, Bad English, Danger Danger, Harem Scarem, Unruly Child, House Of Lords and the list goes on. Thru the years the idea of starting my own label dedicated to this gerne, were always in the back of my head and when the first opportunity presented itself to realize this dream and the release of Elements Of Frictions, then there were no second guessing or doubt, it was all in.


I like this album for its diversity musically, hence the name Elements Of Frictions, it’s not all AOR or melodic rock nor is it hard rock, there is something on it for everyones liking. And that’s what I think stands out on this album and that of course that it has some of the voices back from the heydays back in recording for the first time in years.

Can't listen to these at the moment, but are we saying there's a new band called Elements of Friction, which has nothing to do with the Robin McCauley one a few years back? Didn't that have a Bad English link too?

No. It's Elements of Frictions. Even worse.

That is horrific. How can such a horrible band name be used twice by different bands, give or take an 's'?

Been listening to this today and I have to say I really like it.You need it for the Marcello/Vestry track which is an absolute killer tune.

I missed this one when it came out. I just got this one directly from Lions Pride Music for $10. I have to say that I like it. There are a few fillers on here but for the most part it's some good AOR (14 tracks). I think it's worth the price. I like the Paul Laine, Marcello/Vestry and Emma Varg tracks. I've never heard of her (Emma Varg) before and am curious if she has any other material out there.

I missed it back at the time, but heard it a while later and I agree, it's a really good release. A lot of very worthwhile stuff on it.

    • Coheed and Cambria - Love Murder One. I posted this track in another thread today, but I had to post it here. I can't stop listening to it. These guys definitely lean towards the more Melodic side of Modern Rock. Great stuff!    
    • Kind of where I'm at too.  I like a few tunes here and songs are okay but alot of the songs sort of feel samey.  I think I've put 3 songs in my playlist from it.  
    • I'm with you and think it might be similar for me. I always loved H.E.A.T with Erik and was pretty much a Kenny basher as I wasn't a fan of those first 2 albums at all.  I had very low expectations and really didn't think I'd care much for new music with Kenny.  Anyways, I've slowly come around on Kenny as the singles were released and I'm enjoying the new album.  Yeah, it's not exciting me quite as much as the Gronwall albums did but Kenny sounds excellent to my ears and I'm having no issues with sound or production.  Just sounds like some good melodic hard rock to me.
    • Yeah, at the moment he's the only option for me here. A few guys I'm not really interested in and although EM was everywhere a few years ago, he definitely appears to have settled down recently. If anything, wouldn't mind seeing his name pop up a little more these days, though it's fine as is. 
    • I've been a bit let down by recent albums but the genuine anticipation I feel for new material from these guys means they must have done something right through the years. Would absolutely love it if they unexpectedly hit another homerun. 
    • Classless Act - Welcome to the Show Out of This World - Out of This World Within Temptation - The Unforgiving  The Black Sorrows - The Chosen Ones Horsehead - Onism i-TEN - Taking a Cold Look (Rock Candy remaster) Touch - Touch (Rock Candy remaster) Spys - Spys/Behind Enemy Lines (Renaissance double album reissue)  
    • Literally just added this one to the main site: https://heavyharmonies.com/cgi-bin/glamcd.cgi?BandNum=433&CDName=30 Coming In Hot&Letter=A

    • I have no real opinion on the band's schtick. I do have an opinion on their earlier albums - they contained a lot of good songs. The last few... not so. Hope they can pull something out here but expectations aren't high
