Hardcore Superstar - Have Mercy On Me

Recommended Posts

Yeah I missed a zero :)

Looks like the Philippines is back on as an option.
If we end up in the US, I'll spend time there with the boys and then when they leave I'll head out somewhere for work.

If it's just for a weekend, why not just up the coast in Australia, lol? It's crazy to go anywhere overseas - US, Phillipines or NZ - for a weekend. Crazy. ;)

I'm super exited about this album. HCSS has been through so many musical styles, and most of them are cool, but I definitely like them better when they sound like this. I haven't really liked any of their albums (some good songs here and there, but thats it) since Split Your Lip, but these new songs sounds like the HCSS I love. I really hope they'll go on a big tour for this album, all the times I've seen them live has been true chaos.

Well it would be a long weekend, so probably 4 days.
But in the end I'll just extend it to what I need to make it worthwhile and do my own thing if they bail early.
But yeah, I agree, hard to understand how they might want to pay the $$$ and spend the time for such a short trip...

Welsome sheila,

I wish is was seeing them in a few weeks. Timing sucks.
They'd be awesome live.

Yeah, same here. Split Your Lip was classic but since they are downwards. Hope the new one will deliver.

You know what? I hated the last album too but I just listened to it after almost three years and I liked 7 songs out of 10. It seems it magically grew on me.

Thank you! Yeah, they're a great live-band. Too bad you won't be able to see them :( its their first time in Australia, isn't it?

I thought they'd been here before.
If they have, I didn't see them at the time.

Hopefully they'll be back soon.
Would have made a road trip to another state, but I'm OS for the full tour...

whatever happened to this band. They had a run of at least 4 totally awesome albums. And then this shit :(

Song sounds OK.

I find myself biased against HCSS after their last album.
Not sure why. Other bands have released a flop and I've gone back without any problems.

Gonna have to listen to this album when I am open to it otherwise I'll just pick through it.
Would be better if they had a proper killer song up first.

Edit: I typed as I was listening. By the end of the song I quite liked it, and see hope.

God this album is shit.

I skipped nearly every song. 

The sound is better but the songs are just weird, hookless drivel.

RIP

I had to chuckle whilst listening to the last song. Lyrics were spot on....

we need to stop.

Goodbye to all of you.

 

 

I AGREE. PLEASE STOP ;)

Yep sadly agree

The old sound seems to be back but the songs are rubbish

Tried giving it a few listens but have ended up listening to c'mon take on me

    What a band these guys were :(

Reminds me of their previous one. The half of the album is OK after a few spins (or years ;)) but basically a letdown.

I feel like I've always had a different view on this band than most folk here. Because of my modern rock leanings, I was listening to these guys when they were a shitty, pointless band, so when that s/t album hit it was all like, oh that's a cool surprise bonus from a shit band. Then they went on a good run before crashing back down to earth with that last pile of dog shit. But through it all, I just viewed them as that awful band that had inexplicably and completely unexpectedly come good. So it was all just a bonus. 

Anyway, that all leads to me not being as harsh on this new album as you guys. Because yeah, it's not as good as their prime, but it beats the shit out of the last album, and of course their early stuff. So it's somewhere in the middle of their discography. I quite like 'Electric Rider,' 'My Sanctuary,' 'You Can't Kill My Rock N' Roll,' 'The Others,' and 'Have Mercy On Me.' They're all cool songs. Unfortunately, after that it goes pear shaped and in the end just ends up an average album. Not bad, imo... just average.

the issue is they have been on the decline since Split Your Lip.

yes there are a few good songs but compared to Dreamin & Beg the album is really weak.

I forgot about this.
Last album was such a let down, I lose a lot of interest.
I'll likely pick it up in a couple of years and wonder why I never bothered with it before...

    • I'll give you one example. Tax cuts. Everyone loves tax cuts right?? and according to Trump every American got a tax cut in 2017.....but here are the facts - According to estimates from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, while most Americans will benefit at least somewhat, the top fifth of earners get 70 percent of the bill’s benefits, and the top 1 percent get 34 percent. The new tax treatment for “pass-through” entities — companies organized as sole proprietorships, partnerships, LLCs, or S corporations — will mean an estimated $17 billion in tax savings for millionaires in 2018   Sorry that's just wrong. And this will add over $1 trillion to national debt. Tax cuts for people expire in 2025/6 while corporation is permanent. Hello austerity measures. Trust me that ain't fun as the UK has found out for the last few years after Labour almost bankrupted our country. 
    • by intelligent he means looking into things beyond the basic stats and lies which are generally used to gloss / cover up what resides beneath And yes Nordic Union will receive no more spins from me. Besides being one paced and generally dull the songs aren't helped by Atkins straining throughout. 
    • I like the song, country vibe or whatever it is. Agree with comments that it wasn't what I expected when I saw the pic. It kinda looks like 3 band members, and they didn't like the look of the 3 of them together, so they asked a sound mixer to stand in the background lol
    • And by intelligent I'm assuming you mean people that follow what's trending in hip circles without looking into things for themselves?  I'm Australian and give very, very little shit about US politics. But I still listen to things and I don't think Russ is alone in his opinion that Obama was a very poor president and that, whether you agree with his politics or not, Trump actioned more stuff in one month than Obama did in years?  Nordic Union album still sucks balls. 
    • Very different to what their image suggests. Lose the country vibe and they're onto something. Not bad at all. 
    • Acoustic rocker( I wouldn't say "Country"). I like it  
    • On first listen through, this album is "meh".  Lots of songs that sound very similar and nothing that sounds particularly inspired.  
    • just heard another snippet and it sounds identical again. I'll give this a go for sure but this dudes songs all sound the same. it's a bit weird
