Nitrate - Real World

Recommended Posts

Rob did sing the demos, but both Nick and I wanted a slightly different style for the end result and Joss was the perfect guy. Rob remains on all backing vocals and it does give us a difference to Midnite City (who are kick ass also)...

Really digging the album.  I'd say Real World, Crank Up The Weekend and Insane are probably my favorite tracks...like the edge in those.  Waiting on You, Hot Summer nights and Dangerous aren't far behind though.  And like the variety songs like Attraction and Only You bring.  The only song I'm not overly keen on is Breathe but that might grow with more listens.  Fantastic effort all around though and I'm sure it'll sound even better once I get the CD in my hands :)

Now we just need Rob to get his visa problems sorted out so we can have Nitrate and Midnite City both performing at MRF6 😁

The sucky thing is I don't know when I will be getting it. Could be a few more weeks or a couple of months. I really am bummed about it.

Available  in Spotify, finally! 

Yes!

And the day it went digital, all the blog/pirate assholes started offering it for free download - hence the delay between CD release and digital release.

Crank Up The Weekend is kinda average and weird electro drums in Waiting On You, but I'll definitely pick this one up as I know I'll really dig it.

In another thread I mentioned that I had not bothered with this band.
I figured out why.
I was thinking Nitro.

Who I was never in to.

Yeah, I wouldn't have realised that there were two different bands probably.

Bet I never did Nitro, so if there was never a post likening them to Midnite City I probably never would have bothered to try them out I guess.

Problem I have here is there are so many bands posted who are new to me and most of the time they are full of synth pop.
Which is cool, because I'm not at a hard rock.metal forum, I'm at an AOR board, but sometimes I don't bother with the new stuff unless I'm in the mood for a crapshoot

    • No doubt in the world he has a sound and he doesn't stray far from it... but if it's that good I'm prepared to be lenient here,
    • Also, the boulevard album is near perfection except the 1 minute of madness at the end of Slippin Away. What were they thinking??  Might be my most played album of 2017. More accurately would no 2 spot. really looking forward to seeing them again on Saturday 
    • Yeah, I love the original.
      Interestingly, Sly Stallone wanted "Another One Bites The Dust" and Queen wouldn't allow the ise, so he asked Survivor to write their version of the Queen song.
      The watched some of the movies and saw the line "you've lost the eye of the tiger", liked the line and wrote the song.
      Another footnote, for the next movie they were presented with that "you're the best... around" song and rejected it and it went on the get fame in the Karate Kid movie. Anyway, like I said, I love the original song, but to me it sounds a bit rawer than this version.
      This version doesn't suck, it's just average in the way of "what's the point"
      Nothing new, no new take on the song.
      if you're gonna redo a song like this, it has to be (as Paul Stanley would say) bombastic.
      This isn't.

      No biggie, but of all the covers are lesser versions of the originals I'll obviously have no interest.
      To cover a song you either improve it or do your own take on it.
      Simply re-recording it with newer technology and a cleaner sound etc is not very inspiring.
    • Not sure what you mean by that. You reckon this version is more AOR than the original? Bonfire are by nature a bit ballsier than Survivor in that era and this just sounds like Bonfire doing a Survivor cover, which, by nature, is a bit more hard rock than AOR... to these ears anyway. Decent cover. 
    • Why are the making the songs more AOR than the originals? Very average.
    • Ha true..his songs are pretty much one dimensional but...two different songs so the melodies do vary(though very slightly) and the second one happens to sound better to these ears.
    • Released via Reed's own 'Zero One Entertainment' label. 
    • Eye of the Tiger cover  
    • I don't think Frontiers is involved with this one
    • True they have been known for long delays between releases.  But over a similar 15 year span from '84 -'99 they put out 4 albums vs. 2.  And after Pyromania & Hysteria a delay was understandable following up hugely successful records (with long tours), Rick Allen lost his arm and had to relearn how to play, they scrapped recordings and started over with a different producer, and of course Steve's struggles with depression and alcohol eventually leading to his death while working on Adrenalize
