Hey all, I could use your expertise here. I've been on a major Treat kick lately and I'm looking for similar bands, specifically ones with the big choruses. Any suggestions? Doesn't have to be from Scandinavia but figured I'd start there.

Thank you in advance.

Hard to say without knowing what you already know.

Stuff like;

DaVinci - 'Back in Business'

Masquerade's debut

Fate's 80's albums and 'Scratch N' Stiff'

Swedish Erotica's debut and album of unreleased stuff

Non-Scandi, but Blue Tears or Harem Scarem

Bonfire - 'Point Blank' and 'Fireworks'

HEAT, Wigelius, Care Of Night etc. in modern times

Amaze Me

Stage Dolls

TNT w/ Tony Harnell

Zero - s/t

Stun Leer - 'Once'

... and so on. But I'd assume you probably know all of them?

As far as similar style to 80's era Treat the ones mentioned above are all good, I'd add three more albums to the list: Glory "Danger In This Game", Dalton "Injection" and Zinatra "The Great Escape",  if you haven't heard those.

Thanks guys. I already own the following:

Dalton - first 2 albums

Zinatra - Great Escape

Glory - Danger In This Game

Zeno - s/t

Skagarack - s/t and Hungry For A Game

Masquerade - s/t

HEAT - s/t and Address the Nation

Wigelius - first 2 albums (kinda poppy though)

TNT - Tell No Tales and Intuition (FUCKING RULES)

Care of Night - everything so far

 

I will listen to the rest. Thank you again!

If you haven't already, look into ReVertigo. It's essentially current Treat with Mats Leven on vocals... again.

You need to get My Religion and Realized Fantasies (highly underrated cd) from TNT.  Also, all Eclipse.....

Question for those of you in-the-know:

When was DALTON - THE RACE IS ON first released on CD?  Was there an actual 1987 release, or is the 1994 pressing the first?

If 1987, does anyone have a photo of the disc they can post so I know for certain what to look for?  I'm a first pressing nut and I REALLY need an original pressing in like new condition of this one.  I often have more dollars than sense, so if someone has one they're willing to part with...........

Thanks!

    • Ridiculous. Wait until you see the kids one I'm talking about. Appallingly untruthful.
    • Carpenter Brut - Leather Terror (Synthwave) Disturbed - Divisive (Metal) Matthew Ward - Armed and Dangerous (AOR) Atomic Swing - A Car Crash in the Blue (Power Pop) Red - End of Silence (Symphonic Metal) Todd Rundgren's Utopia - S/T (Prog Rock) Black Stone Cherry - The Human Condition (Southern Rock)
    • Only caught the highlights, but man, that second goal the Aussies conceded was pure pain to watch. Still cringing just thinking about it. Shame, because otherwise they had a brilliant tournament. It would have been close to a miracle for them to get past Argentina, so I look at the team and their efforts with pride. Oh, and that last minute shot the Aussie dude had... what could have been. But yeah, they gave it a really good crack. As for my Plan B, sorry 'Mericans, but I was very happy to see the mighty Dutch get through and, as per every other world cup, lol, my interest now turns to seeing what they can do. Would actually really love to see them win the thing.  Oh, and speaking of stuff, how awesome were some of the goals from Switzerland in their match vs Serbia. Very impressive. 
    • Simple sound quality / production, but sounds nice. 
    • Nice. Yeah, I don't know mate. Of the songs I posted above, the two from the second album actually seem to be better sound quality than the first. Hard to say if that's across the board, though, or if the sound varies from demo to demo. 
    • I was trying to find the ad running here too, but also couldn't find it on the web. Some moronic thing about there being a new wave or strain or something so we should all wear masks indoors and crowded spaces. We even got a note from our school the other day that in order to go and watch a Christmas assembly the kids are doing, parents will be required to wear a mask now, because of an alleged surge of cases in the local area.  What's become blatantly obvious to me in the last few years is that we are communicated to as if we're all absolute morons. Whether it's via our government or the media, we are spoken to like braindead pieces of shit. Sadly, in many cases they're spot on, hitting their target audience. But as someone with some semblance of a brain (and not even much of it, to be fair), I just simply don't get it. 
    • Yeah, price of tickets. I just saw half priced tickets on Tuesdays for a limited time here too. I don't know what full prices are, but maybe they're only a couple of hundred dollars on Tuesdays.
    • I like it. To bad it’s just a digital and cassette release.
    • Doing you meaning Kent is the vocalist version of ADV.
