I think they were talking about TMF as a possibility for 2020 rather than this year. ;)

For me it's been a horrible start to the year....

Only new release I've spent any amount of time with is the new Tesla.  Have been sampling lots of other stuff and nothing has grabbed me. 

Things should pick up in the coming months though starting with Crazy Lixx next week as I'm sure that will set the initial bar for me this year.  Looking forward to that new Nitrate album in June too as I like the new sound with the vocals.

Hoping to hear more regarding the Defiants, One Desire, Eclipse and Degreed soon too.  And H.e.a.t has been really quiet.  I know Andrew suggested a live album/DVD was coming and I've seen a couple band interviews saying that a new album is supposedly in the works but not hearing anything on them.  Shiraz Lane is another that seems to be recording and possibly could have something out toward the end of the year.

Haha, those two statements kind of go hand in hand. In a terrible year for music so far, Tesla is certainly one the main contributors, unfortunately. :(

I'm pretty sure we've never been at the start of May without a great release released yet. I like the top 5 I mentioned above, but I don't think any would have cracked my top 50 or so from last year, or any before that. Very, very slow start so far.

Crazy Lixx & Midnite City have been fighting it out with me for top spot this last 2 years,and it looks like they'll fight it out again this year albeit Midnite City represented by Nitrate :) ….unless The Defiants give a masterclass come September 13th? :)

Nothing that's really kept me amused enough for weeks of playing repeatedly but really enjoyed the D.A.D. ,  Whitesnake, Devicious , Wake The Nations , Avril lavinge and First Signal. 

Also enjoyable Scorpion v Tarantula, John Diva. 

Some super disappointments. Tora Tora, Jetboy to name a couple.

the first half of 2019 has been one of the quietest since the late 90s imho.

However I do feel that the second half is going to be very special indeed. 

Some of my favourite artists have new releases due and that is very exciting.

My thoughts too.  Been a pretty slow 6 months for my tastes.  Really only Crazy Lixx and Nitrate have done much for me.  Tesla was okay but I know there are many mixed feelings on that one.

I'm not sure the next month or two really look much better.  I'm looking forward to the H.e.a.t Live CD/Blu Ray but that doesn't really count.

Things will pick up though.  Can't wait for that Defiants album, Eclipse, Degreed, Pretty Maids, etc.

personally I'm looking forward to -

 

Lebrock, Nitrate, Work of Art, Eclipse, Reckless Love, Crashdiet, Revolution Saints, The Defiants, Degreed, One Desire, The Fell, Steel Panther 

and of course the outside chance of Night Flight Orchestra but I suspect this might be 2020 now??

Hate it when frontiers is asking me 30 euro + shipping (you fakkers!) for an Eclipse single! :angry:

If you find Tesla OK you may as well like everything from 2019, so no complaints at all, mate!

all 3 samples so far are absolutely marvellous. I have no doubt that it will be a challenger for top spot.

    • Okay but not overly exciting me initially.  It's a well done tune but just wish it had a little more bite or edge or something. Reminds me a bit of Perfect Plan style-wise. Keeping eyes on this though.  Would like to hear a few more songs. 
    • Anyone else getting their face slapped around by this one? In the past they've been pretty standard metalcore type stuff with all screams and not much else. This album, however, has some really cool and catchy metal tunes on it.  Here's a few of my faves;          
    • The last few comments are basically where it's at. It's really not a bad album. I like 'Idiots,' 'In the maze,' 'We are the legion,' 'Parasite' and 'Waiting for your love.' And none of the rest is terrible... though not great. I guess stuff like this is probably the future for the band. Just one of the crowd, rather than the genre leaders they were with the debut and 'Generation Wild.' Nice solid album, but they're not the band they used to be.  
    • Wow, you're certainly one of the younger members here. I think Karpetface turned 9 this year, but after him, you're the next youngest!  Welcome aboard and yes, pretty impressive to see someone so young into this type of music. Do your parents listen to this style of music? Interested in how you got into it in the first place. 
    • So after listening to this a bit more I can agree that there are some good songs here but as already pointed out the production is pretty poor  It pretty much ruins it , Bang bang being the most obvious example for me  Good song but the production on that one is horrendous
    • They released a new album called 'Love Letter Kill Shot' a couple of months ago. Gotta give it to them, they're consistent. If you like what they do, you'll like plenty about the new album. No bad songs and a whole lot of solid-ness.    1    .    Cuff the Criminal 2    .    Reanimate 3    .    Wake Up 4    .    Panic Room (feat. Andrew Schwab) 5    .    Play to Win 6    .    Fire Away 7    .    Misery 8    .    Chemical Wisdom 9    .    Never Too Late 10    .    Touch of Pain 11    .    Walk With Me 12    .    Best Thing Ever     My favourite tune is;    
    • I was just thinking back to a comment I made in April when I first heard a sample from the album. As per above, I was under the impression that the other three guys maintained the band name and that they had a new vocalist. Stefan quickly pointed out it was the other way around and that Archie was the only remaining member. But funny how I didn't recognise him at first listen, and after a few spins of the full album, I still struggle to believe how it's the same guy. I know it is, but man, what a change. 
    • I have to agree, listening to this felt like a chore (despite the short 38 min run time). Especially towards the end cause most passable tracks are around the middle part of the record.
