Very much in the Wazbones style from Tigertailz, Kim Hooker has a new band.

Two songs available here:

Sounds more like Tigertailz than Tigertailz do these days.

True, Blast really didn't sound like Tigertailz.  I read that Ace Finchum was going to start a separate Tigertailz group and tour in the U.S. playing their older material.

Yeah, Steevi Jaimz has been laughing his arse off over the whole Tigertailz US debacle.

Got the album today, and while I certainly would not call it on par with Wazbones, it certainly has that kinda feel about it rather than Bezerk or similar.

Much more modern and dark, but with some fantastic guitar work.

A couple of songs I was not sure about on first spin, but get the feeling that they might need a few more spins before they hook in.

Overall I am sure this album wont appeal to everyone here, but if you liked Wazbones you should at least give it a try. (hell, Cy and Andy are also part of the band, so its actually the whole line up from Wazbones minus Pepsi Tate).

I think you did a good job describing this, some tracks remind of Wazbones, just not as melodic, unfortunately only a few tracks clicked for me after the first spin, but I'll give it another listen to see if it grows on me

Funny thing is. I kinda thought the same after first spin, but when it came to picking some songs to stick in my rock playlist I ended up sticking 7 out of 10 songs into it, so I guess more clicked than I realised.

    • Godd damm! I cun't even reed or spell animoore. It musst be an age thong, I'm getting cold. Title know corectered.
    • Darkhaus - When Sparks Ignite
    • I suppose, I never use that button but it makes sense 
    • I think most of us browse this site using the "Unread Content" button, and we don't always see what sub-forum each thread is posted in. So it never hurts to clarify.  Also, a lot of these guys are pretty dumb, and they need all the help they can get. ;}
    • Not earth-shattering as far as innovation, but the album is very solid musically. A good listen.
    • Received this in the post today...and for me it was a disappointment upon hearing it. Purchased based on the first track released and that I like the two Seven cds,with the debut being top of the class,but this is has a few country type songs which don't sit with me at all...if I'd have heard this disc before I bought it I very much doubt ..or in fact I can definitely say I wouldn't,really disappointed in it.
    • I would agree with that,it was a classy album,full of great tunes
    • Cool! I figured if it's posted in here I won't have to specify that they're Christian only
    • Closest thing I've seen to the point I was going to make. Except, Nordic Union have two bog-average albums and neither would be a good Eclipse album - not even close, imho.  Anyway, for me, there is no doubt in the world that Eclipse's biggest issue is that for a period there for a few years, Martensson was more or less single-handedly writing about a dozen albums per year for every man and his dog. He was just everywhere and it was pretty obvious that was an issue. Some of it was great - I still think the Toby Hitchcock debut is the best album that Martensson has ever written, full stop. And the WET stuff is excellent too, thanks to it being collaborative. But a lot of it was already getting tired early on, such as the poor Ammunition and Nordic Union albums, and that female fronted hard rock band I forget the name of. He was just spreading himself too thin and sadly it's finally come to really show on an Eclipse album. Which is the real shame of it all.  I think the new album is a solid album, but as Glen says above, the best song on it is more or less completely identical to songs on previous albums. It's just got some different lyrics, but otherwise just the same song.  It's a massive ask and not going to happen, but the best thing that could happen for Eclipse is that Martensson just didn't involve himself in any projects for the next two years and concentrate on making good music with Eclipse. Won't happen, though. Also, the different production's been mentioned too - not a fan. It's not offensive, but it just doesn't sound as good as previous albums. 
    • I thought their debut album was excellent. An album that grew on me with pretty much every single spin. I also found a unique-ness in them that is hard to find these days. Great melodies. Very much looking forward to hearing what they come up with next.
