I enjoyed the prior album from this project and was always surprised they didn't put out a follow up, until now at least.  I'm hoping this one is as good the first

First song released from 'Rise'.

The song has a pleasant chorus and vocals sound good, but rather mellow for a lead single.  It sounds closer to Wilson Phillips than the debut.   I'm still interested in hearing more though based on the strength of the prior release.

Out now.

From Frontiers:

NEW RELEASE ALERT: Two Of A Kind's sophomore album, RISE is out now! Buy or stream it here: http://radi.al/TwoofaKindRise

Two Of A Kind is a melodic rock band from Holland, whose self-titled debut album was released by Frontiers in 2007. Fred Hendrix, better known as main songwriter and singer for the Melodic Rock masters TERRA NOVA, heads up the band. Back at the turn of the century, Fred had become more and more interested in production and songwriting, so he started looking for new and fresh talent to develop. Following several suggestions from Frontiers Records’ President and A&R Director, Serafino Perugino, Fred hooked up with not one but two female singers, Esther Brouns and Anita Craenmehr.

After a few writing sessions, Fred submitted the plan for a new band with a great melodic rock edge in the style of Boston meets Heart style to Frontiers, who liked the material and signed the band in late 2005. Recording of the self-titled debut album was completed during the Summer ‘06 with Fred’s TERRA NOVA bandmates Gesuino Derosas (guitar), Hans in't Zandt (drums), and Fred's brother Ron Hendrix (keyboards) joining the proceedings.

“TWO OF A KIND” was met with a warm reception from fans and critics alike and now the whole gang is back together for another album! Long overdue follow-up, RISE is sure to please melodic rock fans around the globe with the performances of all members even more electric than on the debut.

Rubbish album. I can't remember if I've checked this band out before, but are they always this bad? Nothing at all I like about this album. :(

By chance I heard their previous album the other day (their debut?) and it's actually really quite good. I'm amazed at the difference in quality of the two albums. What on earth happened that this current album is so terrible after a good previous album?

Seemed like all the same members were involved, so outside of the passage of time not sure what happened.  Not terrible, but a significant drop off in song quality compared to the first album.

    • 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?
