I wouldn't say that's sad. It just proves how much of an accomplishment this is.

Um no! Good/as good, maybe. Better?! Absolutely love what I'm hearing, and this song is great.

But better than all DD albums?

If Ted was singing on it... just maybe. But nobody/nothing will outdo D2 for me unless it directly involves the voice of D2, Mr. Poley. And that isn't meant as a slight against Laine. I've been a massive fan since he first released Stick It here in Canada. I remember being so pumped reading Metal Edge and hearing Paul Laine was tapped to replace Poley in D2. If Poley wasn't gonna be around anyway, I couldn't think of a more bombastic second choice than Laine. Although Tommy LaVerdi of 21 Guns woulda been my first choice. I always thought he and Poley shared a similar vocal style.

 

I don't want to hijack too much of this thread 'cause I'm sure the Defiants release is going to be killer but has anyone else been dreaming about how awesome a new D2 cd written and recorded by Ravel, West and temp. guitarist Steve Brown with Ted on vocals would be? Wow!

It's sad to me, because why didn't Ravel (and you know he's responsible for most of this) use his best songs for D2? In my opinion, from the songs so far, it's basically already considerably better than 'Revolve.' Only 'Hearts on the highway' had this kind of vibe on that album. Great album, but definitely not this caliber of commercial melodic rock that's been displayed here so far.

Well it should be D2. Or I'll fight him. Makes you wonder if Mr West has been holding him back all these years. ;)

By far my least favourite. I actually think it's kinda weak. The kids at the beginning is unnecessary.

 

Another freakin' track being released...enough already! This being the weakest so far my anticipation has gone down just a little.

Don't agree at all. Simple track, yeah! But killer melody and it's catchy as gluons between those quarks, goddammit. Great reply value for those endless summer days without nights.

 

 

Notice also those palate exercises with the oh, oh, ohs... My palate is always ready to break countless refreshing champagne bubbles from their hydrostatic equilibrium. :tumbsup:

 

 

 

I only concur with the negativism/skepticism considering the intro with the kids, reminding me those countless cooking shows.

    • Already have a conversation goings ons here.
    • After 30 + years, it's finally here.......I have just finished listening to the new CD from Metallic Blue Records by the Reno, Nevada band RAWKON.  Back in 2004, I received a 6 track demo cassette recorded by RAWKON in 1987 from a  fellow collector in Nevada.  He was extremely excited on finding this tape and wanted to share it with me.   On the first play, it immediately reminded me of another  awesome Nevada band, "ROCK BOULEVARD".   As it turns out, RAWKON consisted of one member of ROCK BOULEVARD and this demo cassette turned out to be extremely rare and sought after.   Fast forward 16 years later to today,  those 6 tracks, along with others recorded at various times of the band's life,  are right here on a silver pressed CD.  There are a total of 13 tracks here with a very nice production and impressive liner notes.   One quick note.....the first 3 tracks have a production that is certainly that of a demo and of lesser quality than the remaining 10 tracks which are excellent, so don't become immediately disappointed .   These first 3 songs are from the band's first demo which were more heavy metal and before they got a keyboard player.   Even though they don’t have the same production as the rest of the album, it’s great to have these songs  to form a more complete discography.   Starting with track 4, it all changes and the production is top notch.  The notes are filled with thorough,  in depth info on the band, it's history and with numerous photos.   Certainly a high quality, collector minded release.   Musically, there's something here to satisfy a wide variety of musical tastes.   Grinding rockers with good axe work,  some mid tempo melodic songs with nice keys, melodic melodies and some extremely smooth AOR ballads that will delight the AOR-sters a great deal!  If you enjoy bands such as ROCK BOULEVARD, THEATRE, FLYWEIL or DOKKEN, you will surely enjoy all 13 tracks that RAWKON has to offer.  My hat's off to Metallic Blue Records for bringing us this rare glimpse of melodic rock history......  
    • Back in 1990 we saw the release of the Nevada band ROCK BOULEVARD's "Self Titled" CD that became a collectors crown jewel.  Fast forward to 2020 ...... METALLIC BlUE RECORDS has released a new CD by the band titled "Stand And Fight"  which consists of tracks recorded in 1988-89 prior to their debut CD.   You read that right.....another full length ROCK BOULEVARD album with all new songs that has sat in a can all these years waiting to be rediscovered.   My hands were shaking and my heart fluttering with excitement when I received my advance copy.   When I pressed play on my CD player, I wasn't disappointed and the excitement was absolutely worthwhile......On this new 10 track release, vocals duties on seven tracks are handled by Jeff Kerr and the final three tracks feature Deland Voth's vocals.  There have been some lineup changes here and there......as a result, some fresh new sounds are part of the experience.  On several tracks, the listener is taken down some new melodic rock paths filled with keyboards and melodious layered songs that drive true melodic rock fans wild...  then swiftly taking you along another road filled with wild and crazy hair metal leaving you dizzy with delight.  The intitial style blends melodic hard rock that sounds more like US Westcoast melodic hard rock in the RATT school with a BON JOVI influence.  The remainder comes off in the vein of a more melodic SKID ROW (debut), with a touch of SILENT RAGE, LILLIAN AXE(early), JILLSON and LANCIA.   All of it with a top notch production, great backup vocals and excellent guitar work.  A huge thumbs up to Metallic Blue Records for making this one available after all these many years.   This is a "huge" release.  Along with the newly discovered material,  I was extremely impressed with the extensive liner notes, band history and photos compiled with this CD.  The liner notes alone separate an impressive release from an otherwise ordinary one.   Oh, and I should add, like all Metallic Blue Label releases, this is silver pressed and not a CD-R as is the case with many independant labels these days.    Although recorded prior to the debut, this is a worthy essential to add to your collection.   I should not fail to mention that the highly collectable self titled ROCK BOULEVARD, now titled "I Got What You Want, is also now available from Metallic Blue Records with 2 bonus tracks.   Another quality release that is silver pressed and contains an excellent 12 page booklet filled with band history and photos.   Don't wait till it's too late, get both of these great releases while they are available.   Surely they will become collectors items in the future.

    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to introduce Kreek, the new band fronted by ex-Bigfoot frontman Antony Ellis. This new rock ‘n roll machine from Ellis sees him keeping his foot firmly planted in the fertile U.K. hard rock scene from which he emerged. Kreek's self-titled debut album is due out February 12, 2021. Kreek was first formed in the summer of 2019 after Ellis’ had parted ways with Bigfoot, who would eventually disband. Impressed with Ellis’ vocal ability from their time working with his previous band, Frontiers reached to Ellis about continuing to work together. Ellis had already been thinking about putting something new together and was keen to create a great new hard rock band. He soon found a group of musicians in Nick Clarke (guitar), Lee Andrews (bass), and Seb Sweet (drums) who were ready to join him and thus Kreek was born. Produced by Dan Rossall (Passion, Revolution Saints), Kreek’s self-titled debut is now ready to be unleashed! Line-up: Antony Ellis - Vocals Nick Clarke - Guitar Seb Sweet - Drums Lee Andrews – Bass   Tracklist: 1. At The Bottom Of Hell 2. Missiles 3. Meet Your Maker 4. Million Dollar Man 5. One Voice 6. Man On My Shoulder 7. Stand Together 8. Down 'N Dirty 9. Get Up 10. You’re On Your Own   www.facebook.com/KreekUK
