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

    • That is great news, one of the most consistent bands over the years
    • Well said, they were one of my favorite bands for the better part of a decade starting with High 'n Dry but unfortunately outside of some tracks on Euphoria and a couple on the self-titled album they've done very little that has interested me over the last 25 years.  Without Mutt pushing them and collaborating on the songwriting they seem to have been adrift without any clear direction
    • You hit the nail on the head for me.  The Yeah album was irritating as heck...Covers of a bunch of songs that I never liked to begin with when they should be doing new music.   Def Leppard has been absolutely terrible at releasing new music...What's there, 2 new albums in the last 15 years or something?  And 2 albums that were average at best with nowhere near the attention to detail or even focus they used to have.  They're always been my favorite band but they need a producer in the worst way if you ask me.  I mean, just put out a melodic rock album and stop screwing around with 70's influences and copycat Queen songs.  They irritate me that they've seemed to run away from the style of music that made them successful. Honestly...If they would just put out a melodic rock album in the vein of what Midnite City is doing, people would eat it up and say how awesome it is.  Instead they continue doing these hodgepodge albums with a few good songs and a bunch of bad experiments and/or covers.....with Greatest Hits albums or live released every other year. Sorry for the rant but they have been a frustrating band that was capable of much more the past 10-15 years IMO.   
    • I have that 1987 album lined up for Thursday at work... what's the next one like? The one from 1989? 
    • I'm very fond of that. Love it. Does this dude play the guitar as well as sing? I love that guitar sound he has in his tunes. Great melodic rock. 
    • Climie Fisher was one of those 80's band I loved back then. Great band. Still dig it. 
    • Really good album. Definite return to form here. This was an excellent band, but they kind of lost their way with the whole female vocal era, with some odd choices. It just wasn't for me, but now that the female vocals are gone, it's just down to proper melodic rock business. Good production and a great ballsy sound. Love the music on here... only slight "thing" is that a few choruses just kind of blend into the verses and you're halfway through before you're all like, "oh, this is actually the chorus." But that's not quite as bad as it sounds. The verses are very strong with nice backing vocal melodies popping up anywhere any time, so it's just a good flow of goodness.  Real nice album.  
    • Ha down memory lane. Watching the video after so many years.
