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


Recommended Posts

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.

Yeah how dare Frontiers release full tracks so people can decide if they want to buy it ;)

 

You do realise that you dont have to listen to it???

Somebody tells you there is a beautiful naked woman behind you.....you realize you don't have to look but you do because as a human you are curious and a horny bastard.

 

Of the four naked woman this one is the least sexiest....no guitar solo is like seeing a flat chested naked women...just not the same.

No matter, I'm still getting the cd (I had planned on it before even hearing a second of this release) but the usual need to pre-order it because I can't wait feeling isn't there like it used to be.

 

Same goes with movie previews, some make you go `Yeah I'm curious to see how this one is` and then some previews give you the whole plot and way too much details...so you don't bother going to the cinema and wait for it to be on Netflix.

:D I agree, just not the same. It's okay sometimes although... VERY rarely

Very basic chorus, but I like the song... quite a lot, to be honest.

As I said before Frontiers are only responding to fan feedback that they 'are forced' ( ;)) to download albums because they refuse to buy blind.

 

Well, here you go - Frontiers are now supplying you (the punter - not you specifically) with all the foresight you need to make that important purchase.

 

But as we all know many will just download it anyway (cos that's what they do)

Been sorta sleeping under a rock and haven't paid much attention to this...Been mostly focused on the new Treat album and I was never a huge Danger Danger fan so this just didn't have my attention.

 

Gotta say these tunes are interesting....Kinda like Take Me Back best....Lots of "ear candy" in that song...I'm a sucker for "whoa oh's" :)

 

Really like all the songs though with the only thing I don't like being the little kids in the beginning of Runaways.

 

These songs all seem to ooze quality though and have read 4 or 5 reviews and all have been glowing on the album as a whole.

 

Preoder done....Looking forward to the 15th to see which album wins the Treat/Defiants battle.

Am I the only one that, not only isn't bothered with the child vocals in this song, but actually likes them? The kid has charisma.

Defiants for you Glen? Probably will be for me

I prefer all The Defiants tracks to the Treat ones. So unless the remainder of the Treat album is absolutely awesome i cant see it being better.

I'm not sure yet which I prefer more. I think the Defiants might be a bit more "fun" in it's upbeat, retro style but there is a lot of quality in the Treat songs I've heard also.

 

If I had to pick right now I'd probably be expecting to like the Defiants a little bit more but we'll see.

I was never a big Danger Danger fan...I think back then I sorta avoided them just because there was so much like them that I was on overload.

 

All the sudden though, this is sounding good to me and better than whatever I remember of DD.

 

I think part of it is that I hear so little of this style these days that it now almost sounds refreshing. I mean, it seems like 90% of what I listen to is scandi type stuff with H.e.a.t, Eclipse, Degreed, Treat, Crazy Lixx, etc ,etc.

 

It's almost to the point now where this is kind of a "fun" departure for me so I think it's gotten my attention more than it might've at a different time.

 

Just lost interest.

Maybe people are so desperate for anything 80's they are suddenly able to put up with what would have been considered average actually in the 80's

Maybe it's just too AOR for me.

 

I just found it boring, syrupy and generic.

Record store?!?! I haven't picked up in a shop an AOR or melodic rock cd that wasn't from a super popular band like Journey since the 90's.

By record store I meant the music department in ''Media Markt'' which is similiar to Best Buy and located in Switzerland, Germany and also Austria I think. Because of the distribution deal Frontiers has with either Sony or Universal (not sure which one exactly but one of the big ones) these stores get their releases which is cool. AOR Heaven CDs are also available but other than that not much except for mainstream pop to be found there

Definitely some great moments on this one! 'When The Lights Go Down' has a real Lynch Mob, Wicked Sensation era feel to it and the solo in 'We All Fall Down' is a highlight. Well, at least until the Yngwie sounding shredding / sweeping part... This got a lot of spins from me yesterday and probably will in the future

On about spin 4 now.

 

This is scarily good. Kind of what i imagined a Jovi album between the bubblegum of Slippery and the seriousness of New Jersey would have sounded.

 

Production is top notch. Solos are outstanding.

 

I was worried about the song length but the songs just breeze by....its almost like your at your own personal gig.

    • Yeah, I enjoy the Spooky Rice "Disturbing Breakdown" vids. You're right about voice overs. Probably more important than the production IMO. There's a True Crime channel called "That Chapter" that's pretty good. The presenter is Irish, but he delivers it well. Whenever I start to get fooled into thinking that people and this world aren't too bad after all, I'll watch one of those clips to bring me back to reality.

    • 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
