It is indeed a blind purchase type release and they are a band I genuinely look forward to hearing new material from... but I am hoping for a bit more of an "exciting" release this time around. It's probably because Martensson has spread himself so thin in recent years, but these releases don't carry the weight they should from such a great artist. I hope he sets aside and creates a bunch of killer tunes for his own release.

Dont get this comment....to me Armagedonise was just as good as Bleed & Scream....both great albums.....esp when you factor in the bonus tracks.

 

Are you ready to rock is their best tho imo

Yeah, they are very good albums but there are fillers on them, and there doesn't need to be. The Eclipse albums are good around the 80% mark... but with Martensson's talent there's no reason at all they shouldn't be 90%+ albums. For instance, where are songs the quality of the Hitchcock debut on an Eclipse album?

Hmm... Wrong, but I'm not surprised. It's hard being right.

Well...Eclipse>Wet>Work of art for me.

 

I've just not gotten into Work of Art at all...Don't even really think they belong in the same discussion with Eclipse as they're almost different genres to my ears.

Yep difficult to compare as WoA is defo pure AOR and the others are much rockier.

 

WET would be bottom for me as only 2 albums and the second was a lot weaker.

 

Id say i listen to Eclipse the most.

 

Anyway what has WoA got to do with Eclipse :unsure:

Framework is *such* a great album though, I don't think the other bands could touch it. Personal opinion obviously :)

And Framework isn't even their best album. ;}

Um, W.E.T.'s debut destroys it for me.

    • 'Hail To The Heroes' out February 11th. New song 'Primeval Desire'.    
    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/
