From his website:

 

"'That Rock Guy' has once again shown the true value and importance of quality solid rock in the modern world. His song 'Through The Night' is a masterclass in classic melodic hard rock entering a new era. Be sure not to miss his live show - there's a whole new level of passion to it."

Adam, or as he is more commonly known, 'That Rock Guy' has an industry reputation as one of the hardest working rock musicians on the planet. He has toured the world performing over 1000+ live shows in the last three years alone. His European tour and subsequent successful stints in Japan have solidified his ever-growing fan base filled with fans who are tired of the current industry trends and fans that are looking for simply great rock songs with a loud, powerful stage show filled with energy and passion.

Currently on the home stretch of a massive, unprecedented worldwide tour, the live EP 'Live in Osaka' was recorded on stage in Osaka on the Japan leg of the tour. It is shortly to be followed up by the new studio album 'Through The Night' which will be released soon after the end of the live tour in early 2017.

Not bad...

 

By not bad you mean freakin' awesome? I love it. No idea who this guy is, but I immediately cannot wait for this album in 2017. That's great.

Maybe.

I'd have to listen to it a few more times to see if it sets in.

Sometimes a first impression is good and then later you find that it was maybe swayed by the mood you were in at the time.

Other times you try really hard to like crappy music, to no avail.

For instance I listened over and over to that Kiss Carnival Of Souls single, and started to like it.

Years later I heard itr again and I really didn't remember it at all - my brain seemingly had omitted it from my memory.

Maybe my tastes have changed and COS will be an easier album to listen to. Maybe I'll give it another go...

 

Anyway, The name "The Rock Guy" kinda put me of. Wasn't sure if he was taking the piss, then the song sounded ok, then I wasn't sure what his game was...

Geoffrey I am going to have to agree with you on this one, very nice song and monster 80's production.

Great song, but were the vocals that harsh before?

 

Just listened to 'Through the night' above, and I gotta say, he sounds better on the mellow tune. But yeah, he does sound pretty good on that so I still have extremely high hopes for this. The songs are very good. Great production too.

    • 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.

    • Very sad news. She had a lovely voice. I absolutely love both 'Rumours' and 'Tango In The Night'...both part of my musical journey. 
    • Superb album...one of the best pure Westcoast releases this year. Love the Chaka Khan cover of 'Ain't Nobody' as well. Great stuff
    • Not perfect by a long way, but the album a hell of a lot better than some in the other stuff Frontiers put out on a regular basis
    • Very nice...Move out of the way ADV, Dennis is back .....very solid band with The Greatest Wonder especially being absolutely fabulous. Looking forward to this one a lot
    • I I know I'm way behind the 8 ball here as I had never paid attention to these guys either but just clicked on the Daylight video myself and dug it.  Found my way to this thread and digging some of these other tunes too.  I think the different kind of sound is appealing to me a bit at the moment.  It's almost like if Axel Rose were fronting Tora Tora or something.   Gonna have to give the album a listen to see if it sticks but initially Daylight, Wall Said To Call and Feel Alright are sounding interesting to me from just watching the videos above.  Will have to check the album out. 
    • I used to love this band so much on their first 3 albums. Who could have guessed it would end up with this complete shit show. Bands should NOT air their dirty laundry in public
    • Def Leppard/ Magnum - St. Albans City Hall  April 5th 1980 Saxon - St. Albans City Hall  May 2nd 1980  
    • Just clicked on this to check it out as I had never heard of this band....Not too bad!  Kinda reminds me musically of early Tora Tora but I hear some Axel Rose in those vocals. I might have to check this album out to see if anything else grabs me on it.
