Just listened to the Beg Beg Beg EP. Does Tonight feature on any albums? It's such a strong track that i can't believe it doesn't!

Ok am i right in thinking that Erik Gronwall is the lead singer on Live In London? I was looking forward to hearing 1000 miles live, especially the climatic ending but he doesn't do it :( Kenny's vocal at the end of that tune is hairs on the back of the neck stuff. I'm guessing Erik can't replicate it.

Kenny was superior to Erik if you ask me, I doubt they'll ever top that Freedom Rock album.

 

You and me, brother, you and me.

 

 

You, you, and me, brother. You, you, and me.

The Korean Freedom Rock has Tonight as well as Living in a Memory. They're different mixes/recordings of those songs too so it's worth checking out.

 

The Korean Freedom Rock (never heard the Japan version) is actually somewhat different to the normal version. Besides a different track order, it lacks High on love and the songs themselves are quite different.. extra backing vocals here and there, slightly different guitar solos, more reverb in certain places. I dunno what the story with it is :)

Interesting, i wonder why that is and how many people actually know that

 

My favourite song so far is still 1000 miles but i haven't heard Address the Nation yet

I'm with you.

 

I never cared much for H.e.a.t when Kenny was leading. Sure, there were a couple songs that I thought were okay but never heard enough to even convince me to buy their first two albums. Don't get me wrong, Kenny is a good signer but just something about him that didn't click for me. His voice is just too smooth or something. And personally, I always got like a .38 Special type of vibe from him. And it wasn't the songs because I like all the old songs when I hear Erik singing them.

 

Erik took H.e.at to a different level for me and they've went from off my radar to being one of my favorite bands. I just think he's the total package and you really can't ask for much more in a front man.

 

 

Erik > Kenny live.

No contest

I will go one further and say Erik > Kenny live and in the studio.

Nearly every song on it is better than 1000 miles. Different league imo.

at the end of the day, the H.E.A.T contest will be like DLR vs Hagar :D

 

It's not really for me, to be honest. Kind of a non-issue if I'm telling the truth. I like all 4 HEAT albums so far. If I'm being picky, the last album was their first one that had a few fillers for me (more than the one on each of the first two), but that doesn't mean I prefer everything Leckremo did over Gronwall.

 

I just like it all. The spread of their best songs would be very evenly divided over their four discs for me, so I'm not really interested in who was the better frontman as I really dig them both.

Agree with Geoff, I like all 4 but the band has an edge and energy now that appeals to me more. I could see why people would prefer it the other way around as well. Maybe the next one will seal it for me ;)

H.E.A.T was benefited heavily with the presence of Erik because he's a Swedish-idol champion, and probably that's also the thing that got em major label contract. Good for them to have more fans and I do think both Erik and Kenny have their own strength and can't separate which one is better, both are excellent and all 4 albums to me are essential :)

I love the band but I do find the 4th album the weakest of them all. They kinda adopted this "tough guys" image and the songs got a bit heavier, somewhat crashdiet-ish in places? Talking about masturbating and ecstasy in HEAT songs just seems...wrong! :P I think Erik needs to chill out a bit on stage too.. The spitting into the air thing is just...bizzare, and fairly gross.. especially as last time he failed to 'catch' it and it hit him right in the eye. I feel his vocals seem to suffer a bit with all the gurning and hopping about he feels the need to do.

 

Bar Point of no return, Mannequin show (that one grew on me unexpectedly) we will never die, Emergency and Enemy in me, the rest of the stuff gets skipped.. which is a shame.I'll put it down to them losing Dave (who had a LOT of writing credits) and just assume they were still finding their feet.. High hopes for the next album!

 

The first 3 albums are classics though, with my order of preference being Address the Nation, Freedom Rock then the self titled... I think there's only 1 weak song on each of those albums. (Heartbreaker, Shelter and Straight Up). Freedom Rock is especially brilliant if your a fan of fantastic guitar solos :)

 

Forgot to say, the Korean Freedom Rock also has another big difference, on Black Night, Tobias Sammet sings most of the song, singing the entire second verse as well as the first.

    • New album out November 22 through Lions Pride Music. From Lions Pride Music: Martin Perticone AKA “Perticone Underdog” is an artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina who’s been in the music industry since the age of 13, when he joined the band Fondo Blues as a lead singer and guitar player. Martin played in the Argentinean under circuits for more than 25 years but during the way also got to know many important people in the music industry that led him to become Tour Manager for artists like Eric Martin from Mr Big in 2007 or even being invited as a guest for Richie Kotzen Latin American Tour in 2008. Martin has also toured around Latin America, USA, Europe and Hong Kong as a hired gun for many different artists until he finally decided to put more efforts on his solo career. That’s how his long-time friend Edu Giardina (well-known artist in Latin America) would become his producer and mentor for his debut album “Underdog”. The mixture of AOR, Southern Rock and Country makes this album unique and different with amazing and powerful melodies all over the place. The album featured guests such as Eric Martin (Mr Big) and Edu Giardina and brings reminiscent from the late 80’s and 90’s but keeping the best of current sounds and trends too. Perticone’s solo career has just begun and in only 1 year from his launch he’s got many followers and fans in Europe, Asia and Latin America. “Stuff In The Basement” was recorded during pandemic times at RED Studios Buenos Aires and features an amazing line-up of musicians from all over the world. Edu Giardina and Guillermo Porro got involved, one more time, as the producers and band members for this new release taking the album to another level. It is plain to see the growth of Perticone Underdog as an artist on this new production by just listening to the opening track of the album “Blame it on Me”. There are, as usual, some country “pearls” and 90’s rock reminiscences all over. Stuff in the Basement will be released in 29 August 2022 by Lions Pride Music worldwide!   CD Tracklist: 01. Blame It On Me 02. End Of The Line 03. Name Without A Face 04. Save Me Tonight 05. Game For Fools 06. Waiting 07. Let's Get Lost Tonight 08. What Went Wrong (I Wonder) 09. When It Rains 10. Falling   Perticone Underdog is: Martin Perticone: Lead & Backing Vocals, Acoustic & Rhythm Guitar Edu Giardina: Backing Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Keys, Drums, Progamming Ezequias Aquino: Saxophone Guillermo Porro: Guitar Solo on „Name Without A Face“ Will Wilde: Harmonica on „Game Of Fools“ Emmanuel Lopez: Lead Guitar on „Let's Get Lost Tonight“ Lara Goi: Backing Vocals on „What Went Wrong“ Brad Harper: Pedal Steel Guitar on „When It Rains“   facebook
