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!
