New album out July 8th.

 

From afm-records.de:

KISSIN’ DYNAMITE, a hard rock band from the beautiful South of Germany, is one of the most energetic, active and professional groups of the current scene. Still being young of age (average 25 years), KISSIN’ DYNAMITE have achieved so much in their almost 10 years of history: they’ve tasted chart success for the first time with ‘Addicted To Metal’ (#91), reached the Top 50 with ‘Money, Sex & Power’ in 2012 and just two years later delivered their first Top 20 album, ’Megalomania’, which entered the album chart in Germany on #17! The following headlining tour proved that the band’s fanbase has grown enormously. 2016 sees KISSIN’ DYNAMITEmore confident than ever before: A band whose members are young but very experienced already, who have toured the world, advanced as songwriters and matured as performers. ‘Generation Goodbye', their newest creation, is proof of that. Welcome to the champion’s league!

Anyone interested in live tracks as extras?
I much prefer acoustic versions if they can change them up enough.
Or even better, a couple of the songs that didn't fit the vibe of the record as extras.

For live track, if I'm interested, which is rare these days, I'll get a live album.

Pretty unique when the live track supplies interest in that version.
Tesla did it well, Kiss were unique in that the band and songs progressed a lot and the live versions were sometimes better than the originals (RNR All Nite)

Although not much of a compliment considering what I think of their first two albums, I actually think this is their best so far. It's still just a 70% type release from an average band, but it's okay for what it is.

    • Why even bother adding ADV to this list? Who's gonna vote for anyone else?
    • I don't get why you would even think that. I was thinking the music should be similar and Kenny's voice is powerful so not much change. But HEAT II slays this. Easily.
    • Erik is running out of ideas.
    • It's a solid effort but not wowing me like prior releases. Then again there are so many effing great releases this year that the bar is high.
    • Perhaps the reason I like it as much as I do is that my expectations were completely in the toilet after Erik's departure. I was expecting garbage... and it's not. I find it quite enjoyable, even if not Tearing Down the Walls level. Unlike with the Journey album, I'm not hearing the production issues people are complaining about, at least not to that degree. It's a hot mix to be sure, but it's not impacting my listening or enjoyment as with Journey. I also wonder if again, the source/platform is making a difference. I'm listening to uncompressed FLAC straight from disc, not streaming or some bit-starved promo files.
    • Which one of these seeming workaholics makes you immediately cringe when you see their name associated with a project?  Did I leave out your personal nemesis? Let us know who it is...    
    • H.E.A.T, with "It's All About Tonight" are literally the band that turned me onto modern hard rock in general, and this site in particular.  So definitely a special place in my heart for this band. Put me firmly in the "likes it a lot" camp on this album.  Is it perfect?  No.  Is it a 98/100?  LOL, no. But I like it a lot. First, I don't hear all the same mix issues that some of you have mentioned.  Is it a little loud in parts?  Yeah, I can hear that.  But it certainly doesn't ruin the songs or anything.  But I don't hear Kenny buried in the mix or the lyrics being unintelligible or anything like that.  I've listened on a good pair of Sony headphones and my car stereo - no issues in either place. Secondly, I definitely appreciate that they kept the harder sound from the Erik era.  The best songs here aren't as good as Erik's best ("Point of No Return", "Rise", and "Come Clean" probably being my top 3) but they are really good.  "Tainted Blood" is excellent (see below, however).  "Wings of an Aeroplane" is also really good.  "Hollywood", which I didn't love before, is growing on me even if I do still hate the chorus.  All in all, I really like the songs on offer here. Thirdly, if I'm going to critique, it's Kenny's vocals.  For the most part, he does an excellent job.  When he's just singing the songs, he's great.  He's not Erik, but he does an excellent job.  However, on multiple songs, Kenny tries for vocal histrionics that sound strained and just don't work.  Like on "Tainted Blood", for example.   Bottom line for me is that is a very good H.E.A.T album.  It's not "H.E.A.T II" or "Tearing Down the Walls" or "Live in London" but it's better than the first two albums or "Into the Great Unknown". 8/10.
    • After a couple listens, I'm not impressed.  The songs kind of all run together and sound the same.  Nothing terrible, just blah.
