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.....

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!"

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

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

 

 

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...

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.

    • Yeah... pretty much.  Once ADV got his grubby little mitts on it. 
    • I had this preordered...but according to Amazon its out not until 21st Oct ...I know that wrong...its out tomorrow....hopefully it ticks my boxes after reading what tt42572 wrote.
    • Heard this and have to say this is probably my most disappointing album of the year. Granted, I was jacked up for this one and had high expectations.  I loved Carnival Days, loved their Vibration EP and dug the singles they had come out with (Broken into Pieces, Fake Perfection, Scream and Disconnect from the Matrix).   It almost pains me to say that this album though is just doing very little for me.  First of all, Broken into Pieces and Fake Perfection weren't even included on the album and I feel like that was a mistake.  Scream and Matrix are on it and those 2 are probably my top 2 songs on it. As for the rest, not much overly grabbed me on my first listen.  There are a couple tunes that sound okay and might grow on me some but I found myself mostly just scratching my head and skipping through tunes. Overall just not finding it nearly as catchy as most of their recent stuff. I'll give it a couple more tries to see if it's maybe a grower but initial impression isn't great.  
    • Is too light=cheesy is is it just not hard enough/enough guitars etc? Best regards, Thomas
    • How did I not think of this one?! Brilliant album and the project just tanked afterwards...
    • I don't. Hate it with a passion. Even that is so 1986. Retire Tesla please. You are an embarrassment now.

Rattle The Cage  4:42 Band members: David Shaw - lead vocals, bass George Giannoulis - lead guitar, vocals Alex Rude - guitar, vocals Erik Fehrenbach - drums, vocals Produced by Streetlight Circus Recorded at Snake Mountain Studios - Monroe, New York Mixed and Mastered by Bob St. John for PDQ Productions Bio: Born in New York City, raised on rock ‘n’ roll, Streetlight Circus has become a fist-raising juggernaut.  With two independently-released full-length albums and one EP, consistent touring in the United States and overseas, invites to major American rock festivals, and bills shared with countless venerated artists, Streetlight Circus has become a name synonymous with the new wave of hard rock. The band's new album, Super Fine Sugar, represents a huge leap forward for the hard-hitting quartet. Streetlight Circus showcases the urgent songwriting and soaring vocals of David Shaw, the fiery and passionate guitar work of George Giannoulis, the thunderous drumming of Erik Fehrenbach, and the smooth rhythm guitar work of Alex Rude. What’s more, Streetlight Circus has captured the attention of industry stalwarts who have eagerly participated in the creation of the new album. The songs were mixed and mastered by Grammy-winning producer and engineer Bob St. John. Guest appearances are made by Berton Averre (The Knack), Tony Harnell (TNT), Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies), Brian Forsythe (Kix), and Jesper and Jacob Binzer (D-A-D). Streetlight Circus has been invited to rock thousands at festivals such as Rock Fest (Wisconsin), Rocklahoma (Oklahoma), Rock N’ Derby (New York), Wolf Fest (Colorado), and the M3 Rock Festival (Maryland) among many others. The band has managed to comfortably fit on bills featuring bands as heavy as Avatar, Anthrax, and Megadeth and as accessible as The Doobie Brothers, Buckcherry, and Night Ranger. In 2018, Streetlight Circus embarked on a successful headlining tour of the United Kingdom taking them from Wales to Scotland and many British points in between. Supercharged and ready to roll with Super Fine Sugar, Streetlight Circus is prepared to rock stages around the globe. Don’t miss your chance to rock under the band’s big top. It’s a show you won’t want to miss. Watch the video for "Dirty Earth" featuring Tony Harnell at the link below  https://youtu.be/08_IuFTqwTM
