I should probably listen to some 2016 music. Looks like I've only bought one album from this year. And as far as songs I've heard here go, I'm really loving that Treat - Endangered.

Falling - Nordic Union

Yeah, I love that song but I didn't open a thread about it.


If Generation Now had that explosive intro it would definitely be my favorite one for the year. This is the only problem I have with the latest vega release. 2-3 great tracks lacking spectacular intros.




I'm not sure yet because I have to speculate on their diachronic value which is of great importance to me.


Probably one from these:


The Defiants- Save Me Tonight


Wigelius - Run With Me


Redemption - The Center of The Fire ( I needed photo finish to separate it from "At Day's End")

My runners in no particular order (well, just alphabetical to be honest :P):

 

Avantasia - Mystery of a Blood Red Rose

Chris Oussey - Another Runaway

Danger Zone - Go! (Closer to Heaven)

Nordic Union - When Death Is Calling

Theander Expression - Never Surrender

The Defiants - Love And Bullets

Treat - Do Your Own Stunts

Vega - White Flag

Wigelius - Do It All Again

 

And the winner is...

 

 

Nordic Union - Hypocrisy

 

 

I agree with Hurts So Bad being very good, though.

Danger Zone - Go! (Closer to Heaven)

 

 

 

Is that the Italian band? Roberto Priori's project? I don't dare to listen to it, because probably it will be miles ahead from their cult EP in the 80's. But probably I use my spotify powers on it.

Yeah, I've never seen that before. How cool.

 

My favourite songs of the year (they're kind of even at the minute) are;

 

Still Haunting Me - Magic Dance

These Tears I Cry - Wigelius
Time Well Wasted - Wigelius

Actually I have 3 100/100 Wigelius tracks. Jaysus Kryst, what a cd! Which reminds me the fact that my Taiwanese dealer didn't bring it in stock yet! :doh:

 

And it's my best for 2016 so far! :headbanger:

 

There are only two things wrong with the Wigelius disc, and why it's not being spoken of in the same breath as the other big releases of the year:

 

1. It's release date (in about the first week of the year).

2. The fact that half the album was "leaked" before it was released

 

Because apart from that, I agree, it's still the best of the year so far.

 

And Nightrain, there is a full Magic Dance album??? Where is it?! I said now!! I thought it was still just the EP.

And of course the 3 or 4 songs which are a lot weaker than the rest ;)

    • That April Rain song sounds pretty good to me !
    • That Sammy is a top 5 release of 2022 for me. The Disturbed is also good. My daughter is getting Taylor Swift for Xmas
    • comparing this to Defiants is ridiculous- Defiants is just D2 under a different name  And it will probably be best album of 2023 
    • beautiful, all in their prime 
    • Pretty over this stupid and weak supergroup crap from Frontiers now. Feeling cynical that they are just trying to squeeze every last $ from the fanbase. Fan abuse.
    • The fundamental difference is that the mainstream media is now portraying the Chinese COVID protestors as glorious freedom fighters standing up for their inalienable human rights, where protesters in the U.S. and Canada were portrayed as terrorists, insurrectionists, and right-wing nazis by the very same mainstream media. Fuckers. I guess the current administration(s) have exhausted the money pit being diverted to Ukraine with respect to public approval, so now time to ratchet up somewhere else to send gobs of taxpayer money so that billions can be funneled back to the DNC via crypto...
    • Agree! There was a time back 5 or 6 years ago when I'd get into these project type things....Defiants, Nordic Union, etc.  And I'm sure I'll still enjoy new Defiants music when it drops. But I'm definitely saturated on these things and I'm basically to the point where I'm paying very little attention to them.  I'd rather invest my time into "real" bands that I might actually get the chance to see live someday. Like you say, I'll still sometimes check out these things and maybe I toss a song into my playlist here or there.  But odds I actually purchase an album from one of these new projects is very low.  
    • This seems like something that would be massively exciting maybe five or six years ago but now, not so much. I'm just so bored with the Frontiers factory churning out studio project after studio project with the same songwriters, the same production, and random hodgepodges of vocalists...year after year after year. I'm just not interested in this stuff anymore, I'll listen but the odds that I'll come back to it (let alone buy the album) are low. Those songs are mediocre. They're not ADV's worst but they are not his best either. IMO Robbie steals the show in both of them. Why is ADV still doing backing vocals for a project created specifically for THREE vocalists?  P.S. that band name SUCKS lol
    • New single 'April Rain' from the album 'Naked Soul'. And ADV ruining everything... From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce T3nors, a very special new AOR project. Two of America’s greatest AOR singers, Robbie LaBlanc and Toby Hitchock join forces with one of Sweden’s finest AOR singers, Kent Hilli to form the vocali trio of T3nors. These absolutely outstanding vocalists have come together on one glorious melodic rock album, "Naked Soul", which will be released on February 10, 2023.  The story behind this record actually dates back quite a few years as Frontiers has been wanting to do a “three tenors” type of record for quite some time. Given the extremely high level of AOR vocal talent that the label has worked with in the past and continues to work with today, the idea never really lost steam. The issue was always finding the right pairing of three singers and the timing for the individual singers to have holes in their schedule to record. With the onset of the global pandemic in 2020, everyone's availability, for better or for worse, became more flexible and the idea started to become reality.  Pairing Robbie, Toby, and Kent together seemed an ideal team up and all three were enthusiastic about the idea when approached to participate. The rest, as they say, is history. Kent Hilli is the newest of the three singers on the scene, but has quickly made an impact with the albums he has released with his main band Perfect Plan, as well as being the new frontman for GIANT, solo material, and guest appearances with Restless Spirits, the melodic rock project from Lords Of Black guitarist Tony Hernando.  Toby Hitchcock is an American singer known for his solo albums as well as his work with the esteemed melodic rock genius Jim Peterik in Pride Of Lions. Robbie LaBlanc is an American singer, guitarist, and songwriter known for his work with Blanc Faces, Find Me, a project with The Murder Of My Sweet drummer/producer Daniel Flores, East Temple Avenue, and more.  If you are a lover of all things AOR, then T3nors' debut album, "Naked Soul" is a can't miss release!   Tracklisting:1.
