Casualties I guess. Have in mind that in order to survive a war you gotta become war... :P 

I can compensate, at least, with the fact that if he crosses the ocean for a gig (finally!!!) new songs  will be better/different than the youtube version.

I hope he never crosses the ocean again. Was pretty average at Firefest. Came across as a shy timid frontman which I found really surprising given his image.

I really like that song. Not one of his best, but still a good song. Hopefully there are stronger tracks on the album though as I would like to hear his guitar work a bit stronger.

Just got around to checking this out...I kinda like the new song.  Yeah, maybe a little Nickelbackish but sounds pretty good to me and is catchy.

Will keep an eye on this.

Yeah, that's poor. Has early potential, but the chorus is shit. 

Just the bare truth of it - these pathetic production jobs just piss me off. They really do. Budget isn't even really an excuse in 2019 when you hear what people can come up with at home on their personal computers... but someone like a Kane Roberts, Vega or White Widdow, where they would have the bigger scale of budgets in this genre... There is absolutely no excuse whatsoever for shit production jobs. Unacceptable.

another fairly average song with poor production, on the positive side he did add a guitar solo to this one

Not one of his out and out best, but I do like that one as well.

The ending song (I kinda prefer the remix version(Jap. bonus)-more melodic/up tempo) Wrong with the vitriol in the verse "You're such worthless scum" sums up  my opinion of this. Don't know if it's wrong, but, definitely, it's worthless for me. :(

Heard this album....I was initially a bit on the fence after the first two songs...Thought they were okay and I kinda liked Forever Out Of Place.

Well, after hearing it I feel like those two first songs are clearly the best on the album and the rest is all downhill.  Lots of modern-ish effects ....Not really very melodic, not really very heavy....Not really very AOR.  I'm not sure who this is really geared towards.  I guess mostly it's very Nickelback-ish.

No longer on the fence....easy pass.

I don't much like Nickelback, but that's a very harsh comment about them. Kane Roberts, in 2018, would dearly wish to dish up something comparable to Nickelback. 

However, there is no sugarcoating this. This is a terrible album. I don't know what he was trying to get at, but it fails on every level. It's not going to please a single fan of his, I dare say. Awful songs... :(

Modern has nothing to do with it either - it's 2018. Nothing wrong with modern effects. The problem here is the awful songs which just sound so bad, amplified by the poor production job too. I agree - super easy pass.

listened to this today, as expected there isn't anything resembling the style heard on Saints & Sinners, it has a much more modern sound to it (the inclusion of the cookie monster vocals on 'Beginning of the End' take away from an otherwise ok tune), while overall I was disappointed I still think it's a decent album, just not what I was hoping for from him, my favorites would be 'Above & Beyond', 'Leave This World Behind' and 'Who We Are', while my least favorite would be the final track 'Wrong'

It has moments, but this album is all over the map stylistically, no consistency at all... and WTF with the death vocals? Dafuq?

I will admit, there are a couple of duffers on this one, but overall I really did like it.

One of the only things though I absolutely hate on this though, is that horrible growling that Arch Enemy woman does on the most recent single. She actually has some amazing vocals when you hear her sing clean on the track, but then she does that noise my arse makes when I have got a bit of Bangalore belly after a curry the night before.

The drummer revealed in a social media post that he has been battling the disease since this past spring, saying that he is "feeling much better and stronger now" and vowing to play with QUIET RIOT later this month and through 2020. "I just want to let all of my friends and fans know what's going on with me and why I have unfortunately missed some appearances this year," Banali said in a statement posted on podcaster Mitch Lafon's Facebook page. "I just want to let all of my friends and fans know what's going on with me and why I have unfortunately missed some appearances this year. Since April 17th, I have been battling stage four pancreatic cancer. "The original prognosis was very scary. I had quite a battle on my hands and it took a lot, but I am thankful to say that after several rounds of chemo and other treatments, I am on the mend. The road ahead is not going to be easy but cancer has met its match and I plan to continue fighting. "I wish I could have been with you all at every QUIET RIOT performance as this is the first time in 38 years I have ever missed a gig," he continued. "Please know that if I had been able to fly on a plane and play a show nothing else would have stopped me. I am feeling much better and stronger now. "I intend to play the QUIET RIOT concert at the Whisky A Go Go on Saturday October 26th and to continue touring in 2020 with QUIET RIOT, so I hope to see you there. I appreciate all the fans that support QUIET RIOT by coming to shows and I hope you will all continue that support as well as keeping me in your thoughts and prayers." QUIET RIOT played several shows this year without Banali, marking the first time ever that the band performed without any of the members from its classic lineup: Banali, singer Kevin DuBrow, guitarist Carlos Cavazo and bassist Rudy Sarzo. At some of QUIET RIOT's recent shows, Banali was replaced by Johnny Kelly (DANZIG, TYPE O NEGATIVE). Banali resurrected QUIET RIOT in 2010, three years after the death of founding member and singer Kevin DuBrow. QUIET RIOT initially featured the late guitar legend Randy Rhoads and went through some early lineup shifts before securing the musicians that recorded the band's multi-platinum-selling 1983 album "Metal Health". Wright has been a part of QUIET RIOT, on and off, since 1982, having initially been involved in the "Metal Health" recordings (he played bass on the tracks "Metal Health" and "Don't Wanna Let You Go"). Grossi was in the last version of the band, from 2004 through 2007, before Kevin passed away, and was asked by Banali to return in 2010. QUIET RIOT went through two vocalists — Mark Huff and Scott Vokoun — before settling on Jizzy Pearl in 2013. Pearl announced his exit from QUIET RIOT in October 2016 and was briefly replaced by Seann Nichols, who played only five shows with the group before the March 2017 arrival of "American Idol" finalist Durbin. Pearl returned to QUIET RIOT in September. QUIET RIOT's new studio album, "Hollywood Cowboys", will be released on November 8 via Frontiers Music Srl.
    • I saw Seb live a couple of years ago, and while he obviously played a mix of Skid Row and solo stuff, it was the Skid Row stuff from the first two albums that really made everyones night. I personally still rate the debut album as their best and one of the top albums of that era.
    • It's basically a pop/rock album with a terrible production but not bad at all. After the first spin it's a 7/10 from me.
    • Ok a limit of 5 then. 
    • But now there are too many options. 
    • Sounds very nice. The band name sounds so familiar, but apparently I've not heard this? I will asap. 
    • Yeah, 'Sound of madness' is pretty decent. Not sure about 'Amaryllis' though. I don't think I thought too much of that. I forget. Overall, though, pretty poor discography. 
    • Awesome band - killer new tune. I will also very much look forward to this. 
    • Holy shit, really? We're more or less the same age.
