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......

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.

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!

    • That's a better track.not amazing but better...but still sounds empty if you know what I mean...just sounds like this track should be more solid in sound with a big thumping beat(maybe its just my speakers?)...sadly it doesn't...for me anyway...have a soft spot for HOL so ill most likely still buy it though.
    • Finally got this album and have spent some time with it and I was yearning for something new to listen to.  And damn, really digging it!  I'm not sure how I missed these guys but this album would've definitely been in my top 10 in 2019 if I had bought it then.  I might just toss it into my 2020 top 10. After listening, I've settled that it really mostly reminds me of Kissin' Dynamite combined with H.e.a.t.  The album was produced by Jona Tee and liner notes also say Dave Dalone and Jona both lended a hand with keys, songwriting, backing vocals, etc.    I know these guys have also signed with Frontiers and are shooting for their next release in 2021 so I'm sure we'll hear a bit more about them in the future. I'd just say it's well worth checking out if you liked the Ecstasy album from Kissin' Dynamite as this reminds me quite a bit of that.  It's not quite as strong as that album but similar vibe/style IMO.  
    • New song 'New World New Eyes'.    
    • New video for 'Hollow'.    
    • Yeah, fun band is a good description. They put on an awesome musical show, but they're good fun between tunes too. In complete honesty, considering my sheltered musical life here in Australia, I think I could confidently label that as the best gig I have attended. 
    • great live I agree. Such a fun band
    • do you mean electric boys?  
    • Yep. Very depressing. I got to see Reckless Love on the literal last weekend before shit got insane here in Australia, and I couldn't really ask for a better way to end an era. So good. A nice memory to hold onto for the next few years. 
    • Haha, no worries. And don't worry too much about being gay or not. I have a deep fondness for homosexual intercourse, but I'm definitely not gay. I'll take you up on that offer when this social distance thing dies down.
