Recommended Posts

From bravewords.com:

Metal Blade Records has announced the signing of Kissin' Dynamite, one of Germany's most promising rock bands. Sony Music label Columbia will handle affairs and releases of the group in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

First on the agenda is the release of Ecstasy, Kissin' Dynamite's new studio album, on July 6th. It is the follow-up to Generation Goodbye (2016), which reached #14 in the official German album charts.

Produced by Kissin' Dynamite singer Hannes Braun, Ecstasy harks back to the quintet's unpolished, energy-laden early days, while at the same time marking a turning point in their eleven-year history. In autumn, the group will embark on their first concert tour as special guest since changing labels; from October 26th on Kissin' Dynamite will accompany Powerwolf, who are currently breaking all success records, for 16 joint gigs throughout Europe.

Oh FUCK yeah! Can't wait.

I know that some here can't stand them, but these guys can do no wrong in my eyes (and ears).

Chord structure is very similar to Running Free.

This is a bit of a worry for me.
I see an HCSS situation potentially developing

Looking at my Best Of folder I have the following number of tracks from each album
Steel Of Swabia - 1
Addicted To Metal - 2
Money, Sex & Power - 4
Megalomania - 7
Generation Goodbye - 6

I'm hoping that if they hark back to the early days it is at least modernised in some way.

I like that song. Not a huge fan of theirs but  like a handful of songs.

Cool song
Standard Kissin' Dynamite formula.
What they do well is varying the songs a bit.
Love the guitar scales in the background. Dual vocals compliment each other perfectly.

That's a good tune.

I've never really been on to these guys but think I need to check them out closer.

Not sure how long this will be up, but this song is a monster IMO:

 

 

Speaking of YouTube, no less than 3 different posters have uploaded the complete album in its entirety to YT. Not sure how record labels are going to handle this. It's torrenting, but out in the open.

I've given the full album a listen and it sounds pretty good to me.  Oddly enough, I had noticed Metal Blade Records themselves was one of the parties who posted the whole album on YT last week.  They had done the same with the latest Lizzy Borden album.

"If you can't beat 'em, join 'em"? If a label realizes that the material gets out there regardless, they might as well try to capitalize as much as they can.

 

Another strong song:

Listening to this album on you tube has convinced me to buy it.

Never really paid much attention to these guys but like what I hear...melodic rock with a nice edge.

I'll have to investigate some of their earlier albums.  

Really like the first few tunes...the ballad is great too.  Dips a tiny bit in the middle but Waging War is great and like a couple other songs toward the end.

Think I'll buy the Japan version though to avoid the digipak.

Here's my best of for Kissin' Dynamite
From 5 albums.
Only one from the first and 2 from the second - obviously the early stuff didn't click with me.
In fact really obe from each as High Enough is obviously a cover.

First song that I really dug was Six Feet Under which it turned out was unlike everything else they've done.

01 Lie For Me

02 High Enough

03 Why Can't You Hear Me

04 I Will Be King

05 Club 27

06 Sleaze Deluxe

07 Six Feet Under

08 Maniac Ball

09 Fireflies

10 Deadly

11 God In You

12 Running Free

13 The Final Dance

14 Ticket To Paradise

15 Hashtag Your Life

16 If Clocks Were Running Backwards

17 She Came She Saw

18 Highlight Zone

19 Masterpiece

20 Flying Colours

Great ballad.  This is their best overall album for me, loving it!

Digging this also.  Seems a bit more melodic than some of their earlier albums from what I've sampled.

Like the direction they're going.

I'm with you guys that have not liked this band in the past but they've definitely stepped up here. Another one I'll look at closer tomorrow, but the two tracks Dan posted are two of the best. I was kind of stunned by 'Still around.' Would never have expected a song of that quality from these guys - might even rate up pretty high in single songs at the end of the year. Beauty. 'Waging war' is great too. 

I think there was another belter towards the end I loved... but it could have been 'Waging war.' Will check tomorrow. The two bonus tracks were good too. Nice to see them come good after some pretty unconvincing albums leading into this one,

Agree.  I thought they were "ok" before with the good song here and there, but this album is a HUGE step forward for me.

You guys are missing out if this is the first you've dug them.

That said, this is a killer disc, and leans more to the AOR side of rock than the matal side.

Probably be my top album of the year

    • 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 
    • From Frontiers: BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of BLACK ROSE MAZE, a new project centered around the talents of the awesome Canadian singer Rosa Laricchiuta. Rosa Laricchiuta is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Montreal, Quebec. After several years cutting her teeth with live shows, she auditioned for the third season (2015) of "La Voix", Quebec's version of the popular TV show "The Voice”. Rosa had an instant connection with the legendary francophone rocker Éric Lapointe and chose him as her coach. Rosa showed a solid stage presence, with remarkable intensity and a voice so powerful, it sent her straight to the Grand Finale where she shared the stage with Def Leppard, Kelly Clarkson, Jean Leloup, and her idol, Melissa Etheridge. She left a lasting impression as she won over millions of viewers who named her the new "it" Quebec female rocker. She then released one album in the Quebec market before beginning work on her first English language album in 2016. That album, “Free" was released the following year and at the end of the year, she joined the popular American band Trans-Siberian Orchestra for their annual mega tour of the United States. Rosa was then brought to the attention of Frontiers by none other than fellow Trans-Siberian Orchestra bandmates and now labelmates, Dino Jelusic (Animal Drive) and Jeff Scott Soto. Rosa will now front her very own hard rock project and will be working diligently on it over the next few months. Stay tuned for more news as it becomes available. https://www.facebook.com/Blackrosemaze/   Some songs from her 'Free' EP.          
    • Lmao. Obama had both houses in the hands of the GOP. Trump ha had the benefit of having both houses and still has to make shit up of things his administration has accomplished.  It's sad that some fellow worshipers of the greatest music ever are ignorant buffoons. Glad to see there are some intelligent people too.   
    • Just watching Police academy 4 and this song came on, and I forgot how much I loved it. Back in the day when this movie came out I bought the soundtrack vinyl and as someone who was only just dipping his toe into rock at the time, and listened to a lot of pop I loved this album. Listening to this song now, it gives me a cool lightweight AOR vibe, which is weird considering when I just looked this band up they are actually a country rock band, yet no signs of country on this one. Autograph and Loverboy come to mind for similarity.  
    • greed,very much in the vein(not as good as) Wild Rose and last years  Odyssey Desperado,very safe but why oh why make a lyric video when the lyricas are so silly? Is it just to emphasise it?
    • lol @ the lyrics. This reminds me of that recent band that had very bad lyrics and cool melodies. But it's cool like those bands like Wild Rose, and others I can't think of at the moment. The one that starts with an L? Who knows... but it's nice safe melodic rock with silly lyrics. 
    • And here it is... it's on now?! Oh well, here it is. One of the coolest songs I've been enjoying in 2018, and probably AW's best song to date;  
    • I don't know where we've been posting about new releases from these guys through the years, but they've been churning them out at a decent level. There's a cool tune on the new album referencing this dream of theirs; that they're not in it for success but for the love of the music. Anyway... They haven't been setting my world alight, and no album compares to their debut, but they're okay. Anyway, the new mini-album (7 tracks) is mostly more of the same. But there is one song that has actually set my 2018 playlist on fire, which I think a lot of people here would like.  And, just found out it's not on youtube.   But it's called 'Get It On' and I'll try to post it when it's available. Get your ears on it if you can. It actually may appeal to the synthwave fans here... not that it's a synthwave song. But it's well off the AW beaten track... but in a great way.  This song is quite fine too, though, just to have something to post;
