No comment because you don't like it? I like that quite a lot. I have a feeling I'll be enjoying this album by myself, but I'm really enjoying what I'm hearing so far. 

One thing I'll say is the musicianship doesn't sound to me as good/tight as it was with the old band. Not bad, but a more "standard" sound compared to the well oiled machine they were before. 

But yeah, I dig this song plenty.

October 18th apparently... http://sleazeroxx.com/santa-cruz-unveil-track-list-for-upcoming-album-katharsis-and-us-tour-dates-for-fall-2019/

Christ that mix is awful.  would be a good tune if they'd sorted the mix.  sounds almost brickwalled 

Yeah. Dropped today. 

The vocals sound a little muffled, but sounds like a cross between Bon Jovi and Reckless Love, which is no bad thing.

I really like this song.

Nope, I can almost guarantee this is gonna appeal to me. I don't think its gonna be good as self titled, but so far I have liked what I have heard.

I've come across the Bon Jovi comparison a few times now, on here as well as Youtube and Instagram. Which Bon Jovi era / song are you referring to?

lol, yeah, I'm very curious too. I really can't understand that even a single bit. At all.

Pales when compared to the Loud And Clear song of the same name.

I think it may be a reference to the opening part...it sorta sounds like "its my life"...faintly...very very faintly?

It's My Life. With a hint of Poison by Alice Cooper in the chorus. :D

I can hear elements of both of these in the second song as well and while it is better than the first song still pales in comparison to Screaming for Adrenaline, in my opinion

yes it's miles worse than all those bands eh??

imo half decent but as previously stated by a few others both tunes so far are a way off previous output and one wonders if they should even have kept the Santa Cruz name.

That I totally agree on. Does not sound like Santa Fucking Cruz at all.

In the grand scheme of things (their back catalog), this is a very average song.

But I still kinda diggit, for what it's worth.

Nope.

But in all seriousness, it's so different to those bands that it's not really apples with apples to compare these bands. Too dissimilar. 

In, my opinion.

Again, that's not a straight comparison either. 

Better than early Bon Jovi? No. Better than Bon Jovi from 1996 onwards? For the most part, yes. By a long way.

Better than early Poison? Nope. Better than Poison after 1994? Hell yes. 

Better than 'Trash' or 'Hey Stoopid?' Nope. Better than the rest of Alice Cooper's entire discography? Hell yes. 

Better than Reckless Love? Too hard to say based on a couple of tunes, but I'd say Santa Cruz and Reckless Love are pretty similarly placed bands in the overcall scheme of things?

Can't say until the new album drops, but I don't think they're fading. They're chugging along quite nicely for me. Just a shame "they" is not really "they" anymore.

    • Out February 26 on AFM Records. It’s been more than two years now since Bonfire, following the outstanding debut of their current vocalist Alexx Stahl on Byte The Bullet (2017), were unanimously celebrated for their successor album Temple Of Lies (2018). Two years which saw the band rock countless stages at home and abroad before going on to set the bar even higher with their latest offering: Fistful Of Fire is definitely one of the toughest Bonfire albums ever and has been released in March 2020. As everybody knows today, this album release was ill-fated by that worldwide Covid-19 pandemic – store had closed short after the release and the tour had to be postponed and even cancelled in the end. It’s a fact, that the band did not play one single show with their new album to that very day.However the band from Ingolstadt is trying to looking forward. New plans arouse for an upcoming project. It was summer 2020 when the band again hit the “Flatliners Recording Studios” to start recording the new longplayer “Roots”. It’s a magnificent "almost unplugged"-album with 24 tracks recorded completely over again and interpreted in new ways. It includes very young ballads like “When An Old Man Cries” and old evergreens like “You Make Me Feel”, contains old rock hits like “Ready 4 Reaction” and "American Nights" but also arising rock hymns like “The Devil Made Me Do It”, so every fan of this band will find something on this one. On top of that in features 5 brandnew songs that have been created while acrowdfunding campaign as remittance works for fans.With this release and the new campaign on StartNext the band tries to get some money into their empty band accounts and offers quite some musical delicacy with regards to the content. Besides various merch items, living-room concerts, VIP Tickets for their streaming release show and special rarities like original master tapes or guitar amps, the new album “Roots” can be ordered here: https://www.startnext.com/bonfire-back-to-the-rootsLet’s hope for better times, in which live-concerts can take place again and let us support and celebrate one of Germany’s biggest rock bands in alternate ways until that day.   1.  Starin' Eyes 2. American Nights 3. Let Me Be Your Water 4. Price of Lovin' You 5. Comin' Home 6. Ready 4 Reaction 7. Give It a Try 8. Sleeping All Alone 9. Who'S Foolin' Who 10. Why Is It Never Enough 11. Fantasy 12. When An Old Man Cries 13. Love Don'T Lie 14. Lonely Nights 15. Under Blue Skies 16. You Make Me Feel 17. No More 18. The Devil Made Me Do It 19. Without You 20.

    • Lillian Axe was at the time my favourite band. Poetic Justice might be the best produced and greatest guitar sound on any album I’ve ever heard. Love & War was a bargain bin purchase in 1990...based only on the cover. Turned out to be one of the greatest releases ever...like Hysteria this album has so many epic classic tracks, this album deserved to be a massive hit. The debut was solid, sounded like a Ratt album especially with Robyn Crosby’s involvement. Psycho...was the bands last great release...a change in sound to what we see today from them started on this release. Like Poetic Justice such a well produced and beautifully sounding album...which includes two of the best ballads ever.    In my eyes and to my ears, only Metallica with Lightning, Masters and Justice has another band released such a massive trifecta of releases like Lillian Axe did with Love & War, Poetic Justice and Psycho...
