The Defiants (Paul Laine/Bruno Ravel/Rob Marcello) - s/t


Recommended Posts

Really looking forward to this one. Not worried about this one being country at all. It's on Frontiers, Laine has Darkhorse covering that genre and as Geoff pointed out Ravel and Marchello's melodic rock roots are too deep. Cover is ridiculous unless they are doing it tongue in cheek. Concept is fine but the execution is lame. Looks like they got outfitted at an old time western kiosk at a country fair.

 

And what's up with Danger Danger? I thought Ravel stated it was just too labour intensive to put out a cd and yet one half of D2 are here applying their talents to this release. Westie and Ted too busy?

Yep, I made that point too. It doesn't make sense to me that this is a priority over D2. Don't get me wrong - the more music these guys make, the better. But it really doesn't make any sense; the reasons we've seen that there can't / won't be new D2 music.

 

Nightrain suggested that making a new D2 album would be too expensive and that there is more money in touring. But to that I'd point a heavy and glaringly obvious finger at this project. It's too expensive to create a new D2 album - which will sell more copies in week one based on the band name alone - compared to this album which will never sell even close to any kind of new D2 title over the next 20 years??!!

I bet this is going to be one awesome disc.

 

I don't bet shit anymore. On anyone. But I'm really hoping it is.

 

Song titles are sounding like it should be awesome.

That's pretty much what has me as hopeful as I am, right now.

Somebody in the Mafia was saying it sounds like The Return of the Great Gildersleeves.

Yeah, that's the understatement of the year, so far.

No, I wouldn't say that. Gilder especially has a grittier modern edge....this is pretty 80s commercial.

Nothing wrong with Gilder, but I much prefer a pure 80's sound.

I got my Coup de Grace off eBay for not too much. If I recall correctly. Normally, I agree with you.

    • Press release: UK rock band, CATS IN SPACE, have announced the release of their fourth album ‘Atlantis‘ on November 27th via Harmony Factory / Cargo Records UK. The first single ‘I Fell Out of Love with Rock n’ Roll‘ will be released on October 30th. CATS IN SPACE return with their fourth studio album this Winter with the sensational ‘ATLANTIS’. Nine months in the making, it is set to cause tidal waves around the globe with a sound still ‘very Cats’ but this time the ‘Rock claws’ are out. In a year which has seen much upheaval in the world, the band have also undergone some changes whilst buried deep beneath the ocean recording their new masterpiece. Joining the Cats onboard is none other than the star of Jeff Wayne’s ‘War of the Worlds’, the amazing DAMIEN EDWARDS, whose incredible vocal range has brought another dimension to the unique sounds of the band. After three hugely acclaimed and successful albums, this new line-up will certainly get the fans buzzing in anticipation of the new ‘Aquatic monster’. “Atlantis has been a testing journey for the band in many ways, taking into account some personal events and indeed the state of the business due to Covid-19. But, let us reassure you all, we believe that the new record is going to blow you away. It rocks more and has more symphony, courtesy of our good friend Mike Moran and his orchestra! We are super excited for everyone to hear what we believe is our finest album yet” – Greg Hart. Tracklist: 1. Dive! 2. Spaceship Superstar 3. Revolution 4. Sunday Best 5. Listen To The Radio 6. I Fell Out Of Love With Rock ‘n Roll 7. Marionettes 8. Queen Of The Neverland 9. Magic Lovin’ Feelin’ 10. Can’t Wait For Tomorrow 11. Seasons Change 12. Atlantis

    • New song 'Castaway'. Nice!    
    • So I just heard this song, you all probably know of it, or not, I fucking really really like this song, I think it fucking rocks, but rocks in like a crossover Punk-Goth-Raw Hard Rock throwback to the Black Flag - Loose Nut type days, this song is completely raw, unpolished, and just dirty,
