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...

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.

    • you can choose to use your own lyrics or just describe the premise and it generates them for you - the more detail you put in the closer it will be to what you want.You have 3000 characters of space.  You then describe how the song sounds.  It then creates 2 different songs, but you can carry on creating as many options as you want. You only get 10 songs a day though on the free options and you can't use commercially on the free version - you know like upload to Spotify etc. 
    • So I'm currently on my summer hols which gives me time to catch up on alot of music I have missed or haven't listened to in a while. Anyway yesterday I was listening to Broadside - Hotel Bleu ( great album btw). Now I have Spotify set to play similar artists once the album finishes and Honey Revenge were one of those artists. Liked the song I heard so checked out their debut album Retrovision and it's a cracker. The duo are Devin Papadol- vocals and Devin Lloyd - guitar and together have produced and album full of perfect pop rock. Highly Recommended and well worth a listen.   Full album ...  
    • So, I'll ask again, but what's the go here mate? Are they your lyrics?  Do you type in a specific genre and instrument combination? What about the melody? I should check it out myself when I have time, but I'm very curious. 
    • Nice, they love "Tiger Tiger" in Japan.  
    • VIXEN Announces New Singer ROSA LARICCHIUTA June 21, 2024 VIXEN has recruited Rosa Laricchiuta(TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, HEADPINS),as the band's new lead singer following the recent departure of Lorraine Lewis. Laricchiuta made her live debut with VIXEN earlier tonight (Friday, June 21) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California alongside GREAT WHITE, SLAUGHTER and QUIET RIOT.   Laricchiuta is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Montreal, Quebec. After several years cutting her teeth with live shows, she auditioned for the third season (2015) of "La Voix", Quebec's version of the popular TV show "The Voice". Rosa had an instant connection with the legendary francophone rocker Éric Lapointe and chose him as her coach. Rosa showed a solid stage presence, with remarkable intensity and a voice so powerful it sent her straight to the Grand Finale where she shared the stage with DEF LEPPARD, Kelly Clarkson, Jean Leloup and her idol, Melissa Etheridge. She left a lasting impression as she won over millions of viewers who named her the new "it" female rocker of Quebec.   She then released one album in the Quebec market before beginning work on her first English language album in 2016. That album, "Free", was released the following year and at the end of the year, she joined the popular American band TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRAfor their annual mega tour of the United States. Laricchiuta's hard rock project BLACK ROSE MAZE released its self-titled debut album in August 2020 via Frontiers Music Srl. VIXEN has more than a dozen more shows scheduled for the summer and early fall.
    • Huh, how odd. I just checked and it's indeed there. I guess I'm blind.
    • I see them both in my spotify?! Remixes sound good and better than originals to me!
    • How odd. It appears that only the first remixed album is on Spotify. I usually don't bother to listen to remixes, but I think I'll check this one out.
    • Apparently the first two H.E.A.T albums have been remixed and are on YouTube. I personally don't think there was anything wrong with the originals and some of these new versions seem overproduced to me, but I'll let you all judge for yourselves.
