Corvus - Chasing Miracles


Recommended Posts




From FB:


'Corvus is a new act that has been put together by ex-Serpentine guitarist John Clews. Alongside Clews are Ciaran James, Nick Jeavons and Jordan Brown, with the demos being recorded under the watchful eye of Hanging Doll's Alex Cooper. The overall feel is a smooth colourful palate of AOR that will tick all the right boxes as far as the average AORster is concerned. The smooth lower register vocals of James are complimented by slick harmonies that impress the most on the complex ballad 'Truth or Lies'. They are currently putting the finishing touches to their debut album 'Chasing Miracles' which will be available soon.' (Rob Evans, Powerplay Magazine)

Really weak lead vocals, but otherwise it does sound pretty decent. I wonder if the rest of the band calls their lead singer "Vagina Thief," as I'm not sure vagina would be throwing itself at the rest of those guys from the IT department... I mean from the rest of the band.

Oh wow, those lyrics are as bad as it gets outside of christianity. They are dreadful. And I still just don't like those vocals at all. BUT! But, I actually like the song. It's a very nice melodic rock song, despite the bad vocals and worse lyrics

    • Sorry, that wasn't really what I meant. What I was really going for is that the songs on other albums seem to me to have more of a similar feel to them, like you can tell the songs for Freedom Rock were pretty much all written at the same time. I'm not saying that the songs on Force Majeure don't sound like H.E.A.T (even though I maintain it's not as good, based on the first few spins, as their previous efforts), but that they sound, to me, more "scatterbrained" than the selections from other records. That's not an easy thing to explain, but "direction" was the best word I could think of.    Again, I probably could explained my point better. I wasn't advocating for more guitars so much, but for more variety in the guitars we get. One of the best things for me about the first two H.E.A.T albums (less so for Address the Nation, but still there) was the subtle trade-offs between Dalone and Rivers and the solos that switched between them (good examples of this include the guitar work on "Late Night Lady," "Danger Road" and "Tonight," off the top of my head). Simply because Dalone and Rivers played different set ups and had some variance in tone, you could tell the difference between their playing (though admittedly there were times where Eric Rivers was completely underutilized and overshadowed). Because of the the combination of this record's production and the guitars being all Dave, you don't have as much of that, and that's what I was trying to convey.
    • Agree it reminds of earlier material, but I'm much less of a "Hang Tough" guy and much more of a "What A Shame" kind of guy.
    • Skid Row Nelson Steel Panther Harem Scarem WASP Van Hagar Saliva Joey Tempest Michael Sweet White Lion Mr. Big ... are the easy ones for me. Possibly Warrant as well come to think of it. Some other popular ones listed taht I don't agree with would be Slaughter - 2nd album pipped it GNR - always preferred either UYI albums Tuff - really only had 1 1/2 albums so don't count    
    • and the lyrics tick tock time to rock don't make you cringe?? if it was 1986 and I was 16 it might have been just passable but now, no. 
    • Another release that seems to have been completely overlooked here on HH... check out those vids for "Give It Up" and "Love Will Not Let You Down". I swear both tunes sound like something you'd hear from AdrianGale!  Compassion | Akiba Music (bandcamp.com)  
    • I might stone thrown at me, but hear some Scorpions.
    • "One Voice", which is a demo, is the only one I hear the tape "hiss" on...
    • Is that cassette tape hiss I hear at the start of the song? Is the whole album like that or only the demo tracks?
    • ▶︎ In Flight 1988 | > PHOENIXX < | Freddy Krumins (bandcamp.com) Phoenixx - In Flight CD. Heavy Harmonies Discography As best I can tell, this is a digital only release, which is a damn shame, as what I've listened to so far has been quite good!   ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Seattle not only should be remembered for the grunge; there was an interesting hard rock scene there during the ’80s. One of these bands looking for recognition was PHOENIXX, a 6-piece rocking outfit including the classic twin guitar attack, cool keyboards / synths, and powerful singer with a clean voice. PHOENIXX played the club circuit and managed to professionally record an album only released locally on cassette and when they were ready to move to California, the group disbanded pursuing different interests. Now 2022 and PHOENIXX’s first and only album ”In Flight” from 1988 is finally reissued for all of us enjoyment, including 3 very well done demos previously unreleased. Musically this is a pretty awesome mix of ROUGH CUTT, DOKKEN, HURRICANE and some Americanized WHITESNAKE. There’s polished, elaborated songwriting, excellent vocals and very solid musicianship, while production and especially the mix, are second to none. Check the video below…
