Press release:

Blurring the lines between past and present, the retro-world and modern society, AOR, Melodic Rock and Heavy Metal, OUTLOUD release their first video-single out of their forthcoming album "VHS:Virtual Hero Society" (Rock Of Angels Records)

According to the band: "We love the whole new retro wave but on the other hand we don't live in the past. This video is representative of how the new OUTLOUD album sounds like: it's old but fresh, it's melodic but heavy, it's something familiar yet completely new. 
Somewhere between Guns & Roses, Annihilator, Eclipse and Iron Maiden we feel that we have evolved our personal sound and have contributed to the world metal scene with a really strong album.
"Virtual Heroes" is definitely one of the less obvious melodic/arena rock/AOR video-singles; the album is full of them. We just wanted to make a difference and a statement."

Both songs are okay. Another pretty average band but should be good for a couple of decent songs on the new album.

Not a bad album. They have a good sound and great production, but struggle to write songs that stick out from the pack. A few very similar sounding songs on this one too. But I did enjoy 'I Am the One,' 'Share My Dreams,' 'World-Go-Round' and 'Borrowed time.' 

Not a great release, but it does have it's moments.

Well, I've listened for probably my 3rd or 4th time and have to say I'm disappointed in this.

Really tame/poppy/watered down/samey compared to previous releases.

Let's GEt Serious was about as AOR as I get, and this one just slipped over that line.
I'll likely find a few songs that stick out enough to want to add to their best of, but to get there I feel like I have to listen to this a few more times. Shouldn't be that way.
Maybe I should shelve it for a half a year or so and come back to it.
