New album out September 23rd.

From AOR Heaven:

Truely unbelievable how many fantastic melodic/hardrock bands emerge from lovely Sweden. BULLETRAIN deliver their second effort and provide good stuff. You got an anthem by the name of "We Salute You" which perfectly blends with "Memory Lane", a song that could easily be done by HARDCORE SUPERSTAR. Then there is "Wet, Tired And Lonely", reminiscent of the glorious hair metal days which is in good company with the faster "Feed The Fire". "Old Lighthouse" starts as a ballad but literally explodes to become a true monster song. By the way, you find countless great hook lines. The usual competitors like HARDCORE SUPERSTAR, CRAZY LIXX or CRASH DIET are heavily challenged by this brillant Swedish outfit. Mighty production by Tobias Lindell (e.g. H.E.A.T., EUROPE). Definitely one of the real highlights in 2016.

This seems to have been released with very little fanfair. I remember the previous album was quite good and this sounds good too. Will listen to it asap.

People need to hop on board this one. Gave it a spin last night and we're looking at contender here. Really good album, significantly better than the already good previous one.

Holy shit, just tried to get a link for the song 'We salute you' from youtube and had no luck at all... basically nothing at all for Bulletrain at all other than the 'Fear' clip. It's unavailability on youtube seems to mirror it's popularity here. I'm not understanding. Do people not like it, or have they just not hear it yet? It's a proper good album with some absolute gems on it.

 

I wanted to post a video for 'We salute you' as kind of an "anthem" of 2016. Killer tune. But I can't... :(

Here's a link to that tune. Think the same user has posted most of the album.

 

 

Have sampled most of these songs and for some reason most just didn't grab me. This seems like something I should like and have came back to some of these songs a few times but just hasn't sunk in. I'm not sure why...I think maybe it's the vocals that just aren't doing it for me for some reason.

Thanks! How the hell did you find that and why didn't it come up for me? Love that tune...

 

I had it in my history....Did have a hard time getting it to come up when I searched for it to post it here....

 

I would agree that this would probably be my favorite song that I've heard on the album.

Its OK. But i really dont like the singer much tbh.

 

What does everyone think of Old Lighthouse :unsure: musically pretty cool but probably the worst lyrics of any song this year :lol:

Can't get it to work.

This however works.

    • The Jokers - Slapback from their upcoming release “Rock and Roll Bones” 
    • There are certainly some great songs on here. I've only done the first 2 discs so far though. 
    • Played as well today and it's ok and has a few good songs, but tbh, I'm starting to get a bit bored with them, as they don't offer up anything they haven't done before. Like the last album, everything on this album has been done to death previously and is as predictable as hell. Of all the new albums I have played recently (and there have been quite a few) this doesn't feature very highly unfortunately.
    • I think 'Smoking' is the weakest track by far on here and the only one I don't really rate that much. Of the others, 'Time to Let Go' is a cool rocker that hits the spot and the lead off single 'Why Are You Calling Me Now' is a great AOR track. Liking the rest is going to depend on whether you like the more New Country/Pop ballad style of song, as there are at least 4 or 5 like that,  with Jay DeMarcus's obvious influence on these ..'I Hope You Find It' 'Don't Go' 'Finally Got It Right' and 'Anything But Us' are spectacular ballads and amongst some of the best I have heard in recent times, whilst 'Angels' 'All Night To Get There', 'Lights Go Out In Paradise' and 'Waiting On Your Sunshine' are all top quality too. Definitely one of the best albums this year for me, but as I said, it won't all be for everyone's taste, especially the softer stuff on show.
    • At least they've reverted back to something similar to Tesla soundwise...its ok...not bad...but if I need Tesla I've always got Mechanical Resonance , TGRC or Psychotic Supper to get me through  
    • New single pretty blah to me.  It's ok I guess but no desire to add that to a playlist or re-listen. These guys feel like a band that's underachieved a bit to me with their new music in the past 20 years or so after starting off so well with their first 3-4 albums.  Yeah, there's been some good songs here and there but they just really haven't gotten near the quality of those early albums.
    • Lily Lowe - Scream      After listening to her debut album “Löwe“, it’s evident why LILY LOWE is being coined Norway’s new lady of rock. This young singer and songwriter – real name Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – has the voice, the looks and essentially, talent, to become a star. The mastermind behind “Löwe” is Norway’s rock institution Trond Holter (Wig Wam, Dream Police, Jorn Lande etc.) who not only co-wrote the songs, but also is the musical director & producer, and play all over the record. In fact, most of Wig Wam members play on the album, alongside other Scandinavian renowned musicians. But don’t lose the focus here: LILY LOWE is the star on the album: with her intense delivery of brazen vocals is sure to reign right alongside the most prominent rock artists to date. An she writes very good songs as well. LILY LOWE was a contestant for Norway’s Eurovision this year with the great glammy hard rock tune ‘Bad Baby’ (included into the album) but if you think her music is bland you better listen to “Löwe” carefully. Having a song titled ‘Handsome Whore’ in the track list give you an idea this album isn’t ‘Eurovision saccharine’ at all. This rocks, hard. Holter has provided a bright, crisp, rocking production for Lowe’s voice and he drops some killer riffs to boot, like on opener ‘Scream’ which while wrapped by a modern production it’s very classic rock. The kind of riff that worked in the Seventies, the Eighties, and today. ‘Bad Baby’ is the hit, catchy, infectious, with Lily showcasing why she grew up listening Guns N’ Roses and Motley crue. The glam metal ‘Daddy’s Type’ is probably the song that most reveals Holter’s involvement, because this could easily could be into any Wig Wam album. It’s almost like you get a little shocked when it’s not Åge Sten Nilsen who sings. On “Run” Lily & Holter try something different, more modern and adding some electronics to the mix, but don’t be fooled, this album rocks. “Löwe” is a catchy driving good debut album by this talented young woman, helped by a cast of top Scandinavian musicians. LILY LOWE is an artist we will certainly hear more about in years to come.   01 – Scream 02 – Crying Game 03 – Bad Baby 04 – 911 05 – Caught in a Dream 06 – Daddy’s Type 07 – Handsome Whore 08 – So Long 09 – Run Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – vocals, drums Trond Holter – guitars, keyboards, backing vocals Bernt Jansen – bass, backing vocals Magnus Galguften – drums Tom Jensen – keyboards
