Outloud - VHS: Virtual Hero Society

Recommended Posts

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."

• Artist: OUTLOUD
• Album: "Virtual Hero Society" 
• Song: "Virtual Heroes"

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.

it was OK but I've deleted it off Spotify now which means I'll never listen to it again basically

I rate it 5 out of 6. It's diverse, great vocals, riffing is fine too and there are several songs that have gone on my best of 2018 playlist.

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.

Good song from a pretty good album.

Killer song (pure MacAuley S.G. worship) and video (kinda hard to be objective on that matter, though ;)).
