Who's producing? Both albums were excellent but much different guitar tones and mixes. Think I'd prefer this so sound closer to the first one, especially because we've had so many Flores-produced albums recently.

Regardless, I'll listen to anything Harry sings at least twice.

Agree.  Harry states in the press release that he chose 3 songs to be included on this release, they were written back in the day(89/90ish I think)that he has always wanted to record. Those 3 I am really interested in hearing, because that's what made the debut awesome to me.

From Frontiers:

BREAKING NEWS: First Signal ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM "LINE OF FIRE" | THIRD STUDIO ALBUM FROM Harry Hess & Daniel Flores
OUT MAY 17, 2019 ON FRONTIERS MUSIC SRL

FIRST SINGLE, "TONIGHT WE ARE THE ONLY" OUT TODAY

After two critical and fan acclaimed albums, First Signal are returning with a new studio album, "Line Of Fire". First single, "Tonight We Are The Only" has been released today with an accompanying video. 

First Signal is the musical union between Harem Scarem band vocalist Harry Hess and Swedish drummer/producer Daniel Flores. Of their third collaboration together, Hess says, "once again it was a pure pleasure to be working on these songs. Daniel made it easy on me...just concentrating on being the singer is a luxury that I enjoyed immensely." Flores adds, "as a huge fan of Harem Scarem, I'm still asking people to pinch me to see if I'm still awake. Harry and his band made some of the most classic AOR and rock records ever, so I feel a responsibility to give the fans as close as possible to the quality that Harry continuously delivers with either his own solo work and Harem Scarem. Something the audience has certainly come to expect by now. I think the fans will love this one."

Of the song songs on the record, Hess tells "there were three songs that I recommended to be included on the record. The first was “Born To Be A Rebel," which was a co-write that I did with Stan Meissner way back in 1989 and the other two were Stan Meissner songs “Walk Through The Fire” and “Never Look Back”. I have always loved these two songs and thought they were perfect for this project. Between Serafino (Perugino, President of Frontiers), Daniel, and myself we chose the rest of the songs from many great writers, whose songwriting fit perfectly in the First Signal vision." Flores says, "once again Harry and I worked closely with Serafino to find the perfect songs. It took about four months to find these gems. The writers are from all over the world and they all gave us their best songs. Harry's legacy had everyone, let's say, working at their best."

Flores concludes, "there is more depth and structure now. The feel was right on the last record, but we hadn't found our groove yet. On this one Harry sings, in my opinion, like he has never done before. The audience will be surprised and delighted with his range and charisma here. The overall sound is heavier, but at the same time more melodic and more organic. I'm for sure really proud of the outcome."

First Signal was first brought to life in 2010 when Frontiers President Serafino Perugino presented Harem Scarem singer Harry Hess with some melodic rock songs he thought would be a perfect fit for Harry to put his inimitable vocals on. The tunes specifically harkened back to the magic of the Harem Scarem sound, who at the time were on a hiatus. The project's self-titled debut was greeted with excellent reviews and enthusiasm from the melodic rock crowd, planting the seed for this to be more than a one-off.

Harem Scarem started up again after the release of the First Signal debut, but Harry was still wanting to go back and sing some excellent melodic rock songs that he had from various songwriters under the First Signal banner. The idea of a second First Signal album started to become realized and with the help of Swedish producer Daniel Flores (FIND ME, THE MURDER OF MY SWEET, etc.), the second record, "One Step Over The Line" started to take shape. Once again, the album was greeted with enthusiastic responses and acclaim from the fans and press alike upon release. So, it was a no-brainer to decide to release a new record and once again Daniel Flores teamed up with Michael Palace (guitars) and Johan Niemann (bass) and provided the basic tracks which Harry Hess and Darren Smith (background vocals) completed in their studio in Canada.

First Signal's third album “Line Of Fire” is once again a total delight for AOR and melodic rock fans and a contender for AOR album of the year! And be sure to follow First Signal on the newly launched Facebook page HERE:https://www.facebook.com/firstsignalband/

The lead single is solid, not spectacular. Harry sounds fantastic. 

 

The fact he is re-recording “Born To Be A Rebel” is pretty sweet.

That first single is pretty decent.  Nothing spectacular but gives me hope for the rest of the album.  Sounds like another song and can't put my finger on which one...

Not sure why the lukewarm reception to the first song - I love it.

Love the song. The production is getting boring to me, but again, if Harry is singing I can look past that. Amazing performance from him as always.

    • i think it's quite good except for Billy's bass wanking. Can't stand the guy, always showing off.
    • New song 'Stop'. Niiiiice!    
    • The disc I specifically mentioned in my request is MITCH PERRY - 2005 - The Mitch Perry Projects by Z Records. I found it quite cheap, and BADD BOYZ s / t has a friend of mine, but he told me he doesn't sell it for anything in the world, WOW
    • Prove it! nothing you have stated is even in the ballpark, do you live by the border? are you gonna sit here and piss in my face and tell me it's raining bro? I'm being serious, have you been down and seen the wall, obviously you haven't or you wouldn't have made that ridiculous statement, that's you guys problem, just minimize it and wave it off, it's not good dude, and seriously with all due respect, and i have started to like you over on the music boards, so don't take this wrong, but you don't know what the fuck your talking about bro, and I wouldn't be so sure of that if I didn't know what i was talking about, so hope there's no hard feelings but you guys that just want to make it a left right thing have no clue, I'm not even coming from that position, if you see some of these fucking people not only would you change your tune, you would become enraged, some of these people aren't even here on their own volition, they have been sent here, to connect to a landing point for the cartels, some of them are senior citizens who are so terrified you can literally feel it from them, this is catastrophic bro, and it's fucked up you guys pipe up and smack your gums and your fucking clueless about what your talking about, because no people should treat people like these scumbag coyotes treat these people,   But it goes way beyond them just being here, the final point is there is no reason for many of these people to be here, none, they have nothing to contribute they have no skill, or even desire to work, and I know your smart enough to put the conservative liberal bullshit aside for a second to understand, none of this can end well, and if you cant, then I just assume your unable to detach from the phony bologna political act and just be a person looking at it from all the standpoints of everyone, including Americans, there's a reason people get nasty towards immigration, why do you assume that is? because there's an onslaught of noble prize Harvard graduates plowing into our country by the thousands??? is that what the problem is?? it's fucked up on every side. and anyone who tries to blame the immigrants for flooding in are just as fuckin retarded as the ones who dismiss it and minimize it, there's a huge problem in our future, and nobody's going to take a second to look at the other sides POV. 
    • Some times it cant be helped Terry, there's an abnormal sense of douche baggery on hand here, and I'm not even allowed to take part, it's literally eating me up, just sitting here watching some of the greatest insults Ive ever seen fly by, and cant do a thing about it but watch them, I mean honestly bro, the intelligence level of some of the insults that have been exchanged are new level type shit, a whole new world of insults, I don't know how long I can hold out, maybe we arrange something to get my 2 cents out there in the way of the ground breaking jabs being slung?
    • YEEAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!!! The band is BADD BOYZ!!!! YES YES YES Aordave89, you are GOD GOD GOD GOD!!!!!!!! You nailed it so hard... Straight to my heart I am the happiest man in the world!!!!! I'm gonna listen to that song all the the days until CD is in my hands... I will purchase it! P.S.: I am so grateful to all the guys who dug for me throuh the hard rock vault!!!!!   Aordave89 is GOD!!!!! Greetings from Bulgaria
    • I'm finding myself in not only a Country mood, but also a Western mood. When it comes to old school/new school transition, Mid 80s Dwight Yoakam was as good as it gets.      
    • If  you're happy with the digital download you will get it for $1.20 or 00.90p, bargin.
