I guess I'll have to google that album title....bit strange...

It doesn't appear to have any clear definition. I'd like to hear it from the horse's mouth.

and Eclipse...

In the year so far, Eclipse will set the joint alight. I feel like that's exactly what I need right now.

"Forever" looks to be the only true ballad, but "Standing on the Edge" could be a cool midtempo track. I'm pretty sure we needed this album yesterday.

So I was trying to figure out WTF Zokusho means and came upon this....Zokusho sounded Japanese so when you translate it to English you get "Genus book".....Genus definition is.....

Definition of genus

1 : a class, kind, or group marked by common characteristics or by one common characteristic specifically : a category of biological classification ranking between the family and the species, comprising structurally or phylogenetically (see phylogenetic sense 2) related species or an isolated species exhibiting unusual differentiation, and being designated by a Latin or latinized capitalized singular noun
2 : a class of objects divided into several subordinate species
 
Probably not what the band means by the term......

According to Paul I was the first to purchase my Japanese copy! Love the occasional blind purchase! B)

Blind purchase or "educated"" purchase?

I think I speak for everybody when I say I can't wait for the first sample to drop...

You think we'll maybe hear something this week with the album release being only 6 weeks away?

I think I saw Frontiers post something on FB saying the album release will be pushed back and won't be early June as originally reported.

Not 100% sure on that but seems to make sense since it seems like they usually want at least 2-3 months to promote and roll out singles.

I'm wishing/hoping it's still out in June as I can't wait to hear it.....But kinda expecting something more like July/Aug at this point.

I hope they stick to the original release date, at least for the Japan version which is over a week earlier ;-)

I just compared it to what they did for the debut which was released on 15. April 2016 and the first single was released on 1. March... after that they released two more singles in March and another one early April but could be different this time around

I reckon it will be September.

Eclipse album and WOA albums also done but not on the immediate horizon for Frontiers. They have a shit ton of metal due in June/July and no one buys anything in August.

 

I'd buy something in August cos most of the year has been shit

My thoughts exactly!

Been a poor year so far IMO for melodic hard rock.

Hopefully Crazy Lixx gets things going in a couple weeks.

Here's how Paul explained the title:

We're going to get asked that question a lot... The title "Zokusho" translates in Japanese as: the sequel,  the next chapter,  a continuance.. We've embraced all of this as well in the album artwork... You'll see!!!

 I bought all the versions of latest Dream Theater vinyl because of that poor season!

    • I first heard this a few years ago, and it has probably been discussed on here before but the search function throws up everything when you search for Jani or Serial Killer. I had liked the song The one that got away on Alice Coopers Along came a spider album, and one day a few years ago I found out it was originally an unreleased Jani Lane song. Being a huge Jani fan I have just been wishing that all the unreleased stuff I have heard over the years would get a remaster and a proper release as he was one hell of a song writer and singer. This though sounds fully produced. Also found an old interview from 2010 where Jani discussed working with Alice on his (then) upcoming Welcome 2 my nightmare album, but sadly looking at the writing credits, they went in a different direction as there are no Jani writing credits. I wonder if there are any unreleased Alice Cooper songs from those writing sessions?  
    • Yeah true mine came with the card too - no. 304

    • Popping back in to plug a damn fine album by a damn fine group.  Came out this Friday and I can't stop listening to it. These Swedes have been on an upward trajectory since their debut in 2017. This is already their 4th album. The last one, Rambler, was very good so I thought it would be hard to top, but they have succeeded by a considerable margin.  Black Paisley take their influences from the classic 80s hard/heavy rock genre, with a tinge of modern vibes. Guitarist Franco Santunione joined for the Rambler album and he was a real shot in the arm.  This is riffy, melodic, head bop inducing stuff.  Everything is excellent on this album, but a few songs stick out even more IMO, and they are Set Me Free, In the Night, World's Turning, Silent Asylum and Crazy.  If you haven't checked these fellas out, you really should.  I don't know how to embed Spotify or YT links, so if someone nice could help out, it would be greatly appreciated. 
    • Pretty decent... not mad about it. 
    • Nice. I like it a lot. And yeah, very good quality for a demo. 
    • Didn't know what to make of that one so I actually checked out another song from them-   So they are a rock band... just not really sure what to make of them. Sounds a bit thin, and dare I actually say it, but can something be over-produced? Not sure if that's just me listening on a laptop, though. But I'm moderately intrigued. 
    • Wow, hook line and sinker with the first song alone. Magnificent. Will check out asap.
