LMAO reading this thread....

 

I hadn't heard about it (or paid any attention to it) before seeing the news that Erik Martensson would be involved...

 

This is just crazy. I suppose it could be good but mostly I think it's feel like some compilation CD if they actually have different guys singing lead on various tracks.

 

Sounds like a very poor idea to me.

:lol: That's only because half the band is your beloved Night Flight Orchestra, isn't it? The majority of music fans have no idea who those guys are. ;)

Oh, the guy from Spoilwork! You should have told me. I absolutely love their... uh... that time they did that... uh... oh, when they recorded that... uh... who?!

 

Seriously, if Soilwork us meant to be a well known band I must have missed that memo. Didn't they only record two pointless nu-metal albums about 10 years ago that probably faded into oblivion as soon as they were recorded?

 

All jokes aside, for the audience I believe they're trying to cater two, the only two names in that list that I have any time at all for are Chris Laney and Eric Martensson. I don't know the other dudes from a bar of soap. I know there's the new bass player for Treat which is cool, but he's hardly an established name in the genre at all.

Anyway, are they going to stop gathering someday, and really start to play?

Oh no, they are just meeting for a BBQ...felt we should all know about it

Classic. Your previous comment made me want to watch this again. I don't think I give this one enough credit, because I always talk about The Life of Brian.

Do we know for sure this is a real project, or is Stefan just trolling us?

    • 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  
    • Mayhem With Mercy - Venom
    • Cold Truth - Grindstone  Molly Hatchet - Silent Reign Of Heroes  The Sonic Walthers - Medication
    • 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,    
    • I know a few years ago I posted the very first BA song off his very first album, pretty much sarcastically, as it made me want to throw on some daisy dukes, roller skates and bop up and down my street chewing bubble gum and dancing, well I was wrong, it wasn't his first song, this one is, and guess what? it's a million times better then his old first song, I even got the disco remix, this is pure hilarity, I couldn't stop laughing after hearing this, and like his other first song, this has a mind tormentingly catchy beat to it, caution it will lure you in and get you, also, some company out of Canada BA deals with hunts uploads of this song down with intensity, anyone that gets uploaded to YouTube generally is caught by it's bots on the UL, if not that company snags it within a couple days, so I had to upload an artist who has a similar name and his song that also has a similar name, lets see how long we can keep this up there, and why the fuck does that company care if it's out there? that's almost Nancy Drew script material, very fucking odd, anyway, when your done laughing,, lets hear your thoughts.  
    • err just to make this absolutely clear - this is not coming from me.  And that is not a panic stricken website it is the official UK government website with comments directly from our health secretary ffs you do what u like. at 30 odd years old yes your risk is prob negligible. At nearly 51 I would be far greater risk category even being fit for my age. And as for my parents they would prob die sadly. both have had their yearly flu jab so that risk in minor in comparison - for covid there is no treatment or vaccine. Comparing the two is quite frankly bollocks. so I continue to be careful and prudent  but I am not living my life in fear thank you very much and I am not doom mongering
