I stated elsewhere that I hope this is the throw away tune and the rest of the album is Give "em The Ax part II. I'd settle for Visual Lies part II.

 

I am a staunch LB supporter and fan so my optimism is optimistic yet after the initial track also apprehensive...

Master Of Disguise is still my favorite Lizzy disc. Visual Lies #2.

Visual Lies is my fave.  I like the new song.  It sounds like something from Master of Disguise era.  Fans who prefer the more metal sounding first couple albums may not enjoy it as much, but throw away is a bit harsh.

Decent song....I had to check to see what releases I have by the band and Master of Disguise is the only one....time to remedy that...although I'm not sure anything other than Visual Lies is a necessity...

OMG. How to state the obvious without immediately offense... uhm...

Firstly there are MANY IE ALL early LB albums that are "essential" if not critical. Give "'Em The Ax", "Murderous Metal Roadshow", "Love You To Pieces" are the backbone to LB. Hell we can even slip in the Terror Rising EP with the reboots and the classic "duet" with Betsy Bitch "Don't Touch Me There".  As mentioned Menace to Society is also crucial LB. Master and Visual Lies are excellent but when compared to the early works are missing the rawness.

Yes, the term "throw away" is indeed harsh because at first listen, I already like it. Which comes to mind that LB maybe one of my favorite bands. Since I was young, I've always been into melodic bands like Lizzy Borden.

New video...catchy tune, but moves the bar even further from the early material and that raw, heavier sound

Flip flop for me, but both are great!

Sigh.

This one is better than My Midnight Things, it is reminiscent of Me Against The World done by Wednesday 13 without the solo and half the oomph.

I have the whole album and will spin shortly and hope for something with more staying power.

For those that don't subscribe to paid streaming services, Metal Blade put the full album up on Youtube.  The layered vocals and melodies are there, but when I listened back to back with Master of Disguise it sounded a bit generic musically and lacks the attitude and power of the earlier material.  It isn't bad viewed in isolation but having been a longtime fan I was disappointed.

Color me simple, but I really like this album. For those who like Master of Disguise and Visual lies over the earlier material, this is right in there stylistically. Maybe not heavy enough for those who prefer the early material.

Much better than Deal with the Devil and Appointment with Death.

    • I Don't mind em so ill be checking this one out.
    • That is one terrible album cover 
    • From Frontiers: BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl are delighted to announce the release of “Ride To Nowhere”, the third studio album by Inglorious on January 25, 2019. The debut single & video from the album, “Where Are You Now?” is out now. The album will be released on CD, Limited Edition Box Set (CD+T-shirt), Vinyl, Limited Edition Crystal Vinyl (exclusive to Frontiers webstore), Limited Edition White Vinyl (exclusive to the Inglorious webstore), and Digital formats. Pre-order HERE: http://radi.al/RideToNowhere
      Inglorious Store: http://inglorious.com/shop/
      Frontiers Store: https://www.frontiers.shop/ In amongst their touring commitments, Inglorious spent 2018 writing and recording their third studio album, “Ride To Nowhere”. A much darker, more reflective album than their previous releases, the new songs further hone the Inglorious sound – the pulsating rhythms, driving guitars and infectious vocal melodies. “This album is different in many ways. The songs came about very quickly. As with all our songs we start with a riff, and this time having new guitarist Drew added a new and heavier feel to a couple of songs. We wrote the basics mostly together all in one room on acoustic guitars and then I went away and crafted the stories I wanted to tell. For me this album is very personal. I am for the first time writing about a lot of my feelings, relationships and losses...” – Nathan James “On this album I feel that the songs are a true reflection of what we’ve been through over the past few years - both as a band and as individuals. You’ve got the highs, the lows and lessons learned along the way. The making of this album was at a time when we all had our own personal situations and changes to deal with. I feel that this definitely comes through on the recordings and particularly songs like ‘Tomorrow’, ‘Where Are You Now?’ and ‘Glory Days”. – Colin Parkinson The recording of “Ride to Nowhere” involves for the first time new guitarist Drew Lowe, who says “The album is the next step for the band in maturity. Being that it's my first, I wasn't sure what to expect, but as soon as we started we knew what type of record was coming. Hopefully the fans will love it as they follow us on the musical journey.” From the body blow riffs of the first single “Where Are You Now?”, to the beautiful melodies and bluesy overtones of “I Don’t Know You,” from the assault of “Freak Show” to the acoustic ballad “Glory Days”, “Ride to Nowhere” is an absolute gem of an album, showing not only all the influences from iconic rock albums of the 70’s, but also offering the band’s own sound and interpretation. As with Inglorious “II”, the album was mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith). “There’s a lot of variety on this album, more so than the previous ones and that I really like. Sonically I think it sounds more fresh, contemporary in a sense and that goes for a bunch of songs on the album as well. Just the singles alone are different than how we’ve sounded in the past, but still have the Inglorious feel and vibe! Lastly I also think that musically it’s better than the previous albums, everyone plays very tasteful, soulful and collectively I feel that it’s perfect!” – Andreas Eriksson “We’re all really happy with the way the new record sounds and look forward to seeing how the fans receive it. I personally can’t wait to play the new material live on the road!”- Phil Beaver   Tracklisting: 1. Where Are You Now?
