Really like the debut. Not that he 's bad or anything, but change of vocalist could/should be a good thing and improve the band.

I was going to type the same exact thing :)

I liked the debut also but it did take me some time to warm to the vocals.  Basically, the songs and music were pretty instant with the whole "Midnite City" vibe....But I had to listen a few times to let the vocals sink in. 

Really interested to hear how they sound with Phil.

Haha, no idea who this new vocalist is, but I agree with you guys. I think a new vocalist will be a good thing for this band. I love Zinatra, but he just didn't work out with the Nitrate debut. I reckon this second one should be a cracker.

Nitrate is back bigger & better with their second album ‘Open Wide’ following on from their successful and highly rated debut ‘Realworld’ from 2018. The album will bre released on June 21st, 2019 on AOR Heaven.

Inspired by the late 80’s rock scene with bands such as Def Leppard, Europe, Motley Crue, and Bon Jovi, Nitrate is the brainchild of song writer Nick Hogg (bass guitar/keyboards).
Once again, Rob Wylde (Midnite City/ Tigertailz/ Teenage Casket Company) co-wrote, produced the album and played rhythm guitar. Back on drums & mixing is Pete Newdeck  (Midnite City, Eden’s Curse, Blood Red Saints, Newman). New to Nitrate are Marcus Thurston (Vega) who  took over lead guitar duties and on lead vocals and, all the way from Sweden, Philip Lindstrand (Find Me, East Temple Avenue, Strong). The mastering was once again handled by Harry Hess (Harem Scarem).

Nitrate’s follow up album packs more punch than the first, with a more edgier, in your face feel complete with 10 hard hitting Hair Metal/AOR/Melodic Rock tracks with all out hooks and big backing vocals.

Line up:

Nick Hogg – Bass Guitar & Keyboards

Rob Wylde – Rhythm Guitars, Keyboards, Backing vocals

Philip Lindstrand – Lead & Backing Vocals

Pete Newdeck – Drums & Backing vocals

Marcus Thurston – Lead Guitar

Produced by Rob Wylde; Mixed by Pete Newdeck; Mastered by Harry Hess ; Engineered by Leon Bailey & Pete Newdeck

These new songs are sounding even closer to Midnite City IMO.

I expect I'll like this as it's right in my wheelhouse.

If that's the case in the sound, then it'll be in my wheelhouse also. LOVE  the 2 Midnite City albums.

That sounds miles better than the debut and more or less completely on par with Midnite City. Whether or not the new guy is a better singer or not that Joss (and technically, he's probably not by a long stretch) he's a much better fit for this band. Love it immensely.

Agree ..great point....this voice is just a much better fit for the style of music.

stupid name tho.

isn't Nitrate fertilizer ??

:lol:

This is funny and dependent upon the suffix, yes. Sodium nitrate is used to cure pork.

I can only imagine the band meeting.

"So Tommy what you got?"

"Uhhm, duh uhhm Septic Talon?"

"No that's no good." "Jimmy what you got?"

"Well I'm partial to Delilah's Septum."

"Not bad not bad at all..." "Keith what about you?"

"OK boys strap in here's the name, RU ready........NITRATE!"

The whole band in uni-some ala Bill & Ted : "WHOOOOAAA! EXCELLENT!"

Feckin' ding dongs.

 

And for the record, the songs made my balls retreat back into my body. Thanks Nitrate I am now a post op transgender...

that is an absolute killer track. 

Agree...All killer tracks IMO.

Expect I'll like this more than the debut.  I'm just a sucker for this kind of stuff when it's done well.

So the obvious thing that's happening here is that the debut was MC b-sides and leftovers, regardless of the vocals that didn't suit the material. This new stuff is easily as good as MC, and in the case of some of these songs (particularly 'Only a heartache away' and 'Night time city') it actually sounds even better than the excellent MC. 

Cannot wait for this release and it'll be interesting to see if anything outdoes it for album of the year when it easily shoots up to top spot on the 21st of June.

Agree with most of the comments above. I think we have an absolute gem here. Going by the 3 songs and if the rest of the album is as good or better than these songs then am sure this album will eclipse Crazy Lixx and First Signal by a long way. Might even be better than Midnite City's second album. Will see...

I agree it's looking real good but highly doubt it's passing Crazy Lixx for me....absolutely love that CL album.

Either way, looking like it'll be a very solid release.

    • This is what I was saying today - there's already been a handful in the last few months - didn't a handful of people get in a panic about the Cuban one? Was it Cuba? Who knows, who cares? The most blatantly obvious effect covid has had on people is that it's turned them into panic-stricken fucking morons. Is this how the rest of our lives look? We jump at every single shadow now that ever emerges from the dark? It's an absolutely pathetic way to "live."  Remember when a couple of years ago the world revolved around inspirational sayings like, "Don't let what can go wrong hold you back. Focus on what can go right." They used to word it a lot better than that, but the idea is the same. But the world's the opposite now. Flipped on it's head. A couple of cases of something we're all vaccinated against pop up somewhere and everyone spirals into a panic again? Even though the overwhelming odds are that this will be absolutely nothing again, first port of call is just full blown panic again? What a fucking world, ay.  And this is one of my greatest concerns about the whole stupid fucking thing. In NSW we are 95% vaccinated but every single case that is detected is treated as if we're in March 2020. Even with a 95% vaccination rate, how the virus is viewed and feared has not changed a single percent, in the government and media, since March 2020. And I think this is a problem. We're all vaccinated against it so why isn't it let go, like a flu or whatever else people are vaccinated against, so we can build some kind of resistance to it? Get this herd immunity thing under way? If we're not doing it now, what's the point of any of it? This is the preference, to live in stupid fear for the rest of our lives?  I don't know. I don't know anything about anything, but if we're all vaccinated and we just let the covid thing spread anywhere and everywhere, doesn't that just lessen the effect of any new strains and all this melodrama? But if we keep jumping at every single case like it's terminal cancer, how the fuck do we ever try to move on towards a life worth living?   
    • yep that's exactly what it says on the Web page. Probably takes them about a few hours of tinkering ... adding the odd name etc. not bad work for $7500 
    • It is funny and you are correct the woke police would not allow this behavior on TV or anywhere else any more. Of course who wouldn't want to lay hands on Kirstie Ally?  Those years weren't bad, but I am a bit older and these years are my favorite and equally as un PC.  
    • Well that was certainly a nice tune. Big fan of the production, that bass is rattling my fillings.
    • He has a soft spot for the cheesy promotional tracks.    
    • We didn't really get "cable" TV here until about the early 90's. I have great memories of SNL from that era. I've always followed it since then.  
    • Even if she did, I don't think I'd slide it in.
    • Does anybody remember when SNL was actually funny? I was in the 7th grade and I'd record it every week, Ive looked for a long time for many of the truly funny skits from this time, and now ive started to find some, bet they couldnt get away with this again.
