Sounds like crap. And I'm not talking about the audio quality. This band needs to go away for good. Terrible.

I will say that it at the very least, sounds better than Pile Of Shit, errr.... Bag Of Bones! :rofl2:

Absolutely terrible. Sounds like throwaway hard rock from some 15th rate 220 Volt or Europe wanna-be band from 1982.

That is really as bad as it gets. Couldn't possibly be any worse if they tried. Even Tempest finally doesn't even sound very good either. I guess when you spend your lifetime around this kind of shit it'll wreck you. Fancy being happy to release such fucking garbage... :(

I really dont know what to make of that clip. What an utterly annoying riff that plays through the entire song, followed by musical nothingness just before the chorus, a chorus that couldve been on any of the past 3 discs, a very nice solo, followed by annoying riff again...

The word you're looking for is "shit." It's just shit.

What exactly is he on about? Beats me.

 

At least with Final Countdown you knew he was singing about, well a countdown of some description? You know what I mean.....

All their new stuff is bollocks to me but I'll give it a chance like I always do. They need Marcello back in the band again.

Yup..... that's pretty awful. Why Europe why?

 

Does anybody really like the new Europe as opposed to the classic stuff?

 

I think not.

Vocalist Joey Tempest stated that "War Of Kings is the album we always wanted to make, ever since we were kids listening to classic bands like Zeppelin, Purple and Sabbath. And after hearing Dave Cobb amazing production for Rival Sons we simply had to work with him.
Europe is still hungry, and our adventure is still ON!"

the album we always wanted to make

 

I never understood such sentiment. What ever held them back before?

It's a good question. Who are the actual fans of their current music? Who are the people encouraging them to do what they do? And if they do exist, what on earth is wrong with them?

I was happy when SFTD came out, which has some killer melodic rock songs, but was hoping that was as far from their style as theyd go... unfortunately every album has gone even further...

Yeah.... this is obviously going to be worse than Pile Of Shit..... errr....... Bag Of Bones.

 

Heard 4 tracks and hate them all. This band needs to go away.

Why'd you re-post it, if you don't like it?

 

This might be the first Europe album I won't even bother with. After Bag of Bones I have very little hope.

I'm seriously thinking of not even trying it too. As stated before, I am a nosey creep and I like to keep on the pulse of this kind of stuff, but it is soooo bad, I just don't think I can even bother.

    • If I could change the past my final top 10 woulda looked like this
    • Cool tune - massive s/t album type vibe to it. 
    • Could be. I think they have better distribution in Europe.
    • Trace - Line Of Fire Passion Play - Time Stands Still Mike + The Mechanics - The Singles 1985 - 2014 (2 CD) Frameshift - An Absence Of Empathy Lion´s Share - Dark Hours + 1 Platens - Between Two Horizons No Sweat - Tear Down The Walls (CD-single) Texas - Tired Of Being Alone Acoustic EP
    • Then later by AOR Heaven also I think? 
    • No doubt in the world he has a sound and he doesn't stray far from it... but if it's that good I'm prepared to be lenient here,
    • Also, the boulevard album is near perfection except the 1 minute of madness at the end of Slippin Away. What were they thinking??  Might be my most played album of 2017. More accurately would no 2 spot. really looking forward to seeing them again on Saturday 
    • Yeah, I love the original.
      Interestingly, Sly Stallone wanted "Another One Bites The Dust" and Queen wouldn't allow the ise, so he asked Survivor to write their version of the Queen song.
      The watched some of the movies and saw the line "you've lost the eye of the tiger", liked the line and wrote the song.
      Another footnote, for the next movie they were presented with that "you're the best... around" song and rejected it and it went on the get fame in the Karate Kid movie. Anyway, like I said, I love the original song, but to me it sounds a bit rawer than this version.
      This version doesn't suck, it's just average in the way of "what's the point"
      Nothing new, no new take on the song.
      if you're gonna redo a song like this, it has to be (as Paul Stanley would say) bombastic.
      This isn't.

      No biggie, but of all the covers are lesser versions of the originals I'll obviously have no interest.
      To cover a song you either improve it or do your own take on it.
      Simply re-recording it with newer technology and a cleaner sound etc is not very inspiring.
    • Not sure what you mean by that. You reckon this version is more AOR than the original? Bonfire are by nature a bit ballsier than Survivor in that era and this just sounds like Bonfire doing a Survivor cover, which, by nature, is a bit more hard rock than AOR... to these ears anyway. Decent cover.
