Outlasted - Waiting For Daybreak

Recommended Posts



Press release melodicrock.com:

It is time at least for MelodicRock Records to announce the return of OUTLASTED with their second album 'Waiting For Daybreak', set for release worldwide July 26.

Preorders with bonus audio delivery available this week. The CD release will feature 2 extra tracks over the digital release.

“The new album ‘Waiting For Daybreak’ was recorded over a two year period starting right after the release of the debut. We had six songs written and demoed when ‘Into The Night’ was released. We had a clear vision of what we wanted the next album to sound like” says producer and guitarist Terje Fløyli.

The album is once again mixed by Ronny Wikmark at Touchdown Studio in Trondheim, Norway. The artwork is designed by Nello Dell’Omo at Art For Music in Naples, Italy and mastering is done by JK Northrup at Alien Productions Music Studio, California USA.

“The new album is a natural progression from the debut and showcases a more mature approach to the songwriting process. The first one was written over a ten year period and the lyrics were mostly about love and break ups. The songs on the new album is more uplifting and inspirational.” says keyboardist Odd-Børge.

On ‘Waiting For Daybreak’ Glenn Wikran also contributed to the songwriting. “I’m very pleased with the songs on the new album. The first one was written by Terje and Odd-Børge so I was very happy to take part in writing this one. I think we have all evolved and grown over the last few years, something you can hopefully hear in the music.” adds Glenn.

Outlasted had a lineup change in the fall of 2018. Andreas Jentoft replaced Rune Pedersen on drums and Lasse Ingebrigtsen replaced Aleksander Schjølberg on bass. Glenn Wikran (vocals), Odd-Børge Hansen (keys) and Terje Fløyli (guitars) remain from the original lineup.

One of the new breed of Scandinavian rock bands, Outlasted picks up the mantle of classic rock and wears it with distinction. A five-piece band based in Norway, Outlasted fuses the sound of the golden age of recording with the compelling songwriting of classic rock and brings both into the future with modern production techniques and stellar musicianship.

Many people give this one a go? As per almost every other release this year, it's not great. But there are a few keepers on this one, of a pretty good standard. 'All because of you,' 'She's the one' and 'Owner of my heart' are all pretty fine tunes. Sadly, it's kind of like the Saints of Sin album - great sound and production, but the songs generally fall flat. I do like the aforementioned three, though.

    • 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. 
    • would be pretty hard to top my top 5....all of which are excellent. Quality pretty much drops off a cliff after that  
    • As Glen would say, "v nice."
  • Create New...
