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.

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.

    • QUEENSRŸCHE Announces New Album 'Digital Noise Alliance' - BLABBERMOUTH.NET QUEENSRŸCHE has set "Digital Noise Alliance" as the title of its new studio album, due on October 7 via Century Media Records.   "Digital Noise Alliance" was once again helmed by Chris "Zeuss" Harris, who previously worked with QUEENSRŸCHE on 2015's "Condition Hüman" and "The Verdict" LPs. This past March, QUEENSRŸCHE singer Todd La Torre told FOX17 Rock & Review about the band's upcoming LP: "Each song might have a little different attitude and we wanted to just use real amps and all the vintage, real stuff that was used throughout the history of QUEENSRŸCHE. "We did all the drums at a place in Clearwater [Florida] — a huge home with the most amazing ceiling for a drum room," La Torre continued. "So we did all the drums there. And then, really, at my place [in St. Petersburg, Florida], we're able to track all the guitars, bass and vocals. "Those days of renting thousand-dollar-a-day studios, we don't really need that anymore. And our producer Zeuss, who did the last two QUEENSRŸCHE albums — he does all Rob Zombie's stuff; he's a very seasoned producer, [and] he does mixing and mastering, so he's a one-stop shop — he's down here from Massachusetts. So he's handling all those duties. And things are going really well. We're having a great time." Last November, La Torre told Canada's The Metal Voice about the musical direction of the new QUEENSRŸCHE material: "It doesn't sound like 'The Verdict'. It's its own new kind of thing. We really kind of just focused more on melodic hooks. I don't think we went in thinking, like, 'Oh, we need to sound old school or new or this.'" He continued: "You know what we did on this record… Every other time, each guy would kind of submit their own song ideas and then we would kind of work on that. But what we did on this record was, other than Eddie [Jackson, bass] — Eddie has a couple of songs that are really cool that he wrote and then showed us kind of when they were pretty much done. And then Michael kind of wrote some interesting chords — still staying within the keys and everything. But we all got in a room with our here [in Florida], and we literally started from scratch. Like, 'Michael, what do you got?' [And he would] come up with a riff. And Casey [Grillo] would sit on the drums, or I would sit on the drums. We were all actually in a room and just tried it like the good old days. So this record was totally like that — the whole thing pretty much, minus one or two songs. And even that changed a little bit." In early 2021, Wilton told The Metal Voice about the sound of the new QUEENSRŸCHE music: "Our producer, Zeuss, if this is any indication, he says it sounds like QUEENSRŸCHE … I think we're just going with our gut right now. You don't wanna take too many drastic chances in this day and age. So I think it's more of a continuation of 'The Verdict', maybe, in some sense. We're riding that wave. It's been good to us. [Laughs]" In October, Wilton confirmed that returning guitarist Mike Stone would contribute guitar solos to the band's next studio album. Since late May 2021, Stone has been handling second-guitar duties in QUEENSRŸCHE, which announced in July that longtime guitarist Parker Lundgren was exiting the group to focus on "other business ventures." Stone originally joined QUEENSRŸCHE for the 2003 album "Tribe" and stayed with the band for six years before leaving the group. For the past five years, Grillo has been filling in for QUEENSRŸCHE's original drummer Scott Rockenfield, who stepped away from the band's touring activities in early 2017 to spend time with his young son. In early October, Rockenfield filed a lawsuit against the band's fellow original members Wilton and Jackson, alleging, among other things, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty and wrongful discharge. Earlier this year, QUEENSRŸCHE pulled out of SCORPIONS' rescheduled "Sin City Nights" Las Vegas residency in order to support JUDAS PRIEST on the "50 Heavy Metal Years" North American tour dates. The trek kicked off on March 4 in Peoria, Illinois and concluded on April 13 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------     From Queensryche's Facebook page:   QUEENSRŸCHE – Release “In Extremis”, 1st Song And Video Taken From “Digital Noise Alliance”, Announce Tour With Judas Priest! With a career that not only spans, but has charted the course of multiple genres, QUEENSRŸCHE remains a force in their own right. “Digital Noise Alliance”, QUEENSRŸCHE’s 16th studio album, which will be out October 7th, continues the ever-evolving legacy the Bellevue Washington born band that began in 1982 when they first took hold of the flame with their hugely received self-titled 4-song EP. Their recent U.S. tour with Judas Priest proved that the band’s time off the road and in the studio only stoked their ambition and fire. Once again teaming up with producer Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Hatebreed), “Digital Noise Alliance” not only refracts QUEENSRŸCHE’s past accomplishments but also pushes into the band’s future. It is the band effortlessly moving from strength to strength: immediate and thought-provoking. Quintessentially QUEENSRŸCHE. Get a first taste of “Digital Noise Alliance” with “In Extremis” that is out on all digital platforms, as well as by watching the video: https://youtu.be/W6btF3AotH0 The band comments, “This song is about being on your deathbed surrounded by your loved ones. Clinging to the last sense available, letting them know you will still be hearing them after correspondence or perceived consciousness is visible. Other conceptual metaphors flash in and out, taking note of a world that will not bend to accommodate such suffering, a universe of mockery and a universe void of such abilities.” Right after the release of “Digital Noise Alliance” the band will embark on another tour opening for the mighty Judas Priest on their “50 Heavy Metal Years” tour.   QUEENSRYCHE opening for Judas Priest dates: Oct. 13 Wallingford, CT - Toyota Oakdale Oct. 15 Albany, NY - MVP Arena Oct. 16 Boston, MA - MGM Music Hall Fenway Oct. 18 Uniondale, NY - Nassau Veterans Oct. 19 Wilkes-Barre, PA - Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza Oct. 21 Kalamazoo, MI - Wings Event Center Oct. 22 Detroit, MI - Masonic Temple Theatre Oct. 24 Cincinnati, OH - The Andrew J Brady Music Center Oct. 25 Waukegan, IL - Genesee Theatre Oct. 27 Green Bay, WI - Resch Center Theater Oct. 29 Moline, IL - TaxSlayer Center Moline Oct. 30 Mankato, MN - Mayo Clinic Event Center Nov. 01 Sioux City, IA - Tyson Events Center Nov. 02 Rapid City, SD - The Monument Nov. 07 Ontario, CA - Toyota Center Nov. 08 Tucson, AZ - TCC Arena Nov. 10 Loveland, CO - Budweiser Events Center Nov. 12 Park City (Wichita),KS - Hartman Arena Nov. 13 St. Charles, MO - The Family Arena Nov. 15 Corbin, KY - The Corbin Arena Nov. 17 Southaven, MS - Landers Center Nov. 18 Baton Rouge, LA - Raising Canes River Center Nov. 20 Oklahoma City, OK - Paycom Center Nov. 22 San Antonio, TX - Tech Port Center & Arena Nov. 23 San Antonio, TX - Tech Port Center & Arena Nov. 25 Dallas, TX - The Factory - Deep Ellum Nov. 26 Corpus Christi, TX - Concrete Street Nov. 28 Edinburg, TX - Burt Ogden Arena Nov. 29 Houston, TX - 713 Music Hall Stay tuned for more news, music and pre-order options soon!   QUEENSRŸCHE line-up: Eddie Jackson - bass Michael Wilton - guitar Todd La Torre - vocals Casey Grillo - drums Mike Stone - guitar

    • I wouldn’t be opposed to Soundgarden being included on HH at all 👍 AIC are over on BrutalMetal.com for your commenting pleasure 😎
    • Personally I'd like to see Soundgarden in HH cause they are just another Zeppelin/Sabbath inspired hard rock band. Only thing they had in common with "grunge" is they were from Seattle. Well, so was Queensryche! Soundgarden have nothing in common with the punk of Nirvana, the garage rock of Mudhoney or alternative rock of Pearl Jam. Soundgarden are a classic rock band, like how Alice In Chains are a metal band. A case could also be made to include AIC, but I'd be happy to win on Soundgarden.
