Gioeli - Castronovo - Set The World On Fire

Recommended Posts

In case you didn't already know, THIS is my type of tune.  Vintage melodic rock.  Great harmonized vocals, guitars that actually use B and High-E strings, and an old-school vibe that's right up my alley.  Yep, I'll take one, please!

Ok, gotta admit, that first single was better than I was expecting... shows much promise.

If only they were half as funny as they think they are. Schtick is a bit strong and the love fest... they should get a room.

Music sounds good tho.

Johnny is one of the best frontmen out there. Just saw and heard him recently with Axel Rudi Pell. What a voice! 👍

Meh. Whatever. They're clearly excited to be working together, and the energy is palpable. Yeah, it's awkward, but the music is so good it's forgivable. But those photos were cool. Two grown-ass men still able to goof off. I hope I never lose my inner-child.

Wow, that's a great song. I'm glad it's understood that Castronovo is actually the better singer and they're sharing the vocal duties, as they have a good combination. Works well. Yum. Can't wait to hear more of this one. 

Just watched the EPK. Gioeli actually seems really cool, Castronovo probably a bit harder to handle, but that's cool. As noted, the songs sound great!!

Not as good as that first single, but still a pretty good tune.  Sounds like a track that would have fit in nicely on either of the last two Hardline releases.

Yep...too many ballads, but over all a very good album.

Do my ears need testing? On track 7 (Ride of Your Life), it sounds like Castronovo is singing inside a closet. He sounds muffled as fuck.

Am I imagining things?

Surely you guys can't be surprised that albums like this turn out ballad heavy. Castronovo seems a magnet for ballads. 

I agree there's a few too many ballads, and the harder rockers are definitely the better songs. I'll give it a proper run-through maybe tomorrow, but I liked 'Fall like an angel' despite the really dodgy "rhyming" lyrics in the chorus. And there was another really cool rocker towards the end. Was it 'Run for Your Life?' 

Initial impression was I'd have liked more Castronovo on vocals as it seemed to be mostly Gioeli, but seems like a good album. I thought it sounded considerably better than Revolution Saints (especially the second album), and light years better than Axel Rudy Pell.

definitely nowhere near the 2nd Rev Saints which is an awesome slab of melodic rock hard, with only 2 ballads

I could have done without the cover of Need You Now and wished they'd have swapped out one of the ballads for another up tempo track.  But, don't let some minor flaws deter you, this is a high-caliber project and well worth checking 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?
