Let me introduce myself...


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


Been an avid user of the heavy harmonies database for years now and occasionally discovering new gems on the forum here so thought I'd sign up and share my views on old & new music. I'm 26, live in Switzerland and been listening to ''rock'' music since I've been 11 or 12 (back then it was bands like Limp Bizkit, Korn, Linking Park but they were my introduction to guitar music). Then discovered Led Zeppelin at 14 and after hearing Guns n' Roses at age 15 that was it..... Became obsessed with ''hair'' bands of the 80s and been living in the hard n heavy sections of local second hand record shops since then :-)


Got acquainted with Ratt, Dokken, Winger, Tesla, W.A.S.P. all the good stuff and classics also some more ''obscure'' or lesser known bands . After trying Def Leppard a couple times and not liking it (not heavy enough and didn't like the voice back then) it ''clicked'' at one point and I started listening to Def Leppard which sort of paved the way for more AOR and melodic rock styled artists


That's what I've been listening to mostly for the past 4 or 5 years along with the occasional new band which attracts my attention. Also stuff most people would categorize as ''pop'' for example 80s and early 90s outputs from Michael Bolton or Cher, as long as it's got a guitar solo I can dig it ;-)


Looking forward to taking part in discussions and discovering more cool music here

How are you from Switzerland, but you don't list Gotthard as one of your favourites? I would have figured that would be a requirement to be a citizen.


Anyway, it's good to have you here. Hopefully you stick around. New blood is good, but young blood is better. I'm not the youngest anymore! We need to keep the torch lit.

Haha yeah never really been a fan, don't like Krokus either to tell you the truth


Seriously, I'm the youngest one? I know there are a few ''older'' members here (sorry guys) but I figured there were some younger ones on here as well...


Anyways, what are you currently listening to? I've been on a Harem Scarem trip lately (only their first 2 records so far not sure if I should try the newer ones) and still listen to the new White Widdow record just a great album!

Weight of the World, Human Nature, and the new one, Thirteen, you'd probably like.

Welcome aboard. Get nude and try Harem Scarem's 'Believe' and also 'Early Years,' which would be my two "must-have" Harem Scarem releases after the first two.

I have no idea what you all mean by old.


Welcome. You'll never find a better place to find great music. You'll also quickly realise none of us ever agree on any single album. That White Widdow really isn't as good as some on here say though. :whistle:

    • I like this song, no issue with the GV. What don't you like?
    • Hello, me in 2019. I used to think that way but over the course of the last two years I have lost all respect I ever had for the police. In this instance, I honestly don't know. I'm sure there's two sides to the story, but I'm far less inclined these days to feel any sympathy for the police considering the roles they've played in covid management. Fuck them, I regrettably say these days. 
    • How overproduced is his voice?
    • Pushing the kids was pretty harsh, but there is no context. Judging by the way she was speaking, accusing the police of groping her friend, you'd think that she was likely inciting them. Doesn't justify the shove of a kid, but in a karmic world, possibly got what she deserved. I hate these clips, and the Avi is a fucking dick. He dissipates what he does by leaning so far to the right that he's as bad as the lefties. The cops wouldn't be detaining a young girl unless they had a reason. People honestly think that all 10 cops there was all in on being unfair and persecuting the girl? nope.
    • John Cooper of Skillet fame wanted to experiment with a heavier style than his main band allowed for, so the Fight the Fury side project was born. As you can tell from the video, it basically sounds like Skillet crossed with Slipknot. Not for everyone but I kind of dig it.
    • You've presented a whole load of easily debunked statements about atheism. When corrected you've taken your bat and ball home.  You had a chance for a conversation but for some reason unable to have that conversation. The you just resort to insults.   I turn my other cheek. 
    • The arrogance and hypocrisy in this statement is what is staggering. Maybe we could turn this into a big collective circle jerk for all the poor misunderstood atheists. I will leave you to it. Enjoy.
    • I know this thread is Mr.AOR's, so I won't impose, but I do need to post this one. I've posted it before, but I do think this track truly encampasses the true meaning of our modern day Christmas.     
    • Nice SCTV reference.   Rick Moranis is an absolute legend and good guy by all accounts.
