He could be singing about toothpaste for all that does for me.

Wait..he's not?

Mary Leigh was a suffragette. Don't think this is about suffragettes. just a coincidence imo. anyway it's a pretty cool tune imo.  I've given up trying to understand what martensson is on ab

This is out in Japan....Spinning it today.

For me it's pretty good.  I think I like it better than I was thinking I might after I first heard the album samples.  I mean, it sounds like Eclipse through and through and it's good melodic hard rock.  I'd put it behind Armagedonnize and Bleed & Scream but might put it a tiny bit ahead of Monumentum just because it feels a bit more varied to me than that album.

Anyways, I'd say Delirious and When The Winter Ends are probably my favorite tunes.  Viva La Victoria and United have both grown on me a bit and I'm fine with those tunes.  I also quite like The Masquerade as that's got a cool vibe to it and it's nice hearing a more epic 5 minute song than their typical 3 minute rompers.  The rest is just kind of typical Eclipse for the most part.

I'm feeling like it'll slot in at my #3 spot this year behind The Defiants and Crazy Lixx.

Frontiers and Eclipse on FB have been saying something is coming on the 5th, so it's weird that no one has post ed here or there in a week!

Has a big "Krokus - Say Goodbye" feel to the verses guitar.

Reminding of Sabaton.

This comment is pretty ridiculous. There is no resemblance between the two. Lyrically perhaps a tiny bit, but if battle themed songs are all it takes there are thousands of bands that is similar to Sabaton.

I will say it again and again, I would rather have a song SOUND good to my ears and have tired lyrics than have it sound like sh!t and have brilliant/fresh lyrics.....

This, this, this. 

It's not enough to be able to pen a killer tune, musicians all have to be John Steinbeck too. AND write lyrics for each individual taste. 

Shouldn't be too difficult.

music is not poetry, so melody hook is more important to me, and lyrics are secondary and don't need to be that great.......it is melody that get's me interested in a song

also most lyrics are not as bad as some people make them out to be

yeah unfortunately in this case the melody is boring and rehashed from the last 4 albums AND the lyrics are shite.

just re-checked the last album and songs like Jaded, No Way Back, Born to Lead etc absolutely destroy this new stuff.

If these first 4 songs were your fishing tackle box and you went fishing with it you would catch absolutely nothing as they have no hooks whatsoever.

😂

Funny but you're wrong.

You're being tough on this one :)

For me, I often find myself tuning out on the second half of Monumentum after Jaded just because every song sounds like it could be the same song.  They're good tunes but just kinda all run together a little for me.  Except for Black Rain which is different, although I don't care much for that tune. 

I wanted a little more variety from them and I guess these Nordic sounds give it a little more unique feel to me or something.  I was iffy at first but it's grown on me.   Heck, even Mary Leigh grew on me....dumb title and all :lol:

Agree you're bing tough on this one.
Will be interesting to see if you change your mind eventually as I've seen you done before.
Of course you may not just like it, which is fine.
For me the vocals always run in dasnger of being a bit samey, which means the music needs to be diverse, and from what I've heard, they are on track with this.
I can see that Blood Wants Bllod getting into my brain eventually...

    • I know zero about cricket, unless your speaking of the darts game, that I can bury some ass in, Baseball will be my favorite sport until the day I stop sucking air.
    • Not gonna ruin it with a sneak peek. Was listening to Bia Bang today. Damn, they have some great stuff, want a new album from them. Gonna go and see if they have anything in the works.  
    • haha, yeah, I mixed up Electric Circus with Restless Gypsy. or perhaps I was thinking the LA Guns. Andy Timmons also did a song by that name. I know this as I wrote the lyrics for it.
    • Yep, need a few more listens to the EP though.
    • Van Hagar is my preferred VH. Over here, we really didn't get too much of the earlier stuff. Jump put them on the map, unless you were harcore 'metal' back then. I mean when 1984 came out I was 14 or 15, so I was just moving to hard rock, getting into Kiss and Maiden etc. I mean I Was Made For lovin' You pretty much put Kiss on the map in Australia, and then Shandi solidified them. So VH never toured Australia with Sammy or Dave. Sammy toured solo, and VH toured with Dave in 2013, but we never got to see the real Dave show. In the end, I'm not a huge fan of pre 1982 stuff. There are a few songs... More a fan of early Sammy stuff, post Montrose. The last album they had contained a few songs. Stay Frosty is great.
    • MLB. Don't even get me started on a Cricket vs Baseball/Softball comparison. That's a whole other can of worms.
    • Sorry Terry I was being a smart ass, you kept commenting on how good BTE was live, so I axed you again, truth is, I know your not lying or exaggerating, because I too saw them in 96 with Tonic, Sponge, and Our Lady Peace, BTE were extremely surprising, as they took to the stage and the guitarist opened with a fucking huge solo, I never saw it coming out of that Alpha Gama Ray fraternity looking dude, blew me away, but I gotta say, after that night, I went from having only heard of them, to being a lifelong Sponge fan, they were mind blowing, and their discs do them no justice to their live act.
    • Now I never said that, why you trying to do that bro? LOL, pretty smooth though, Rugby's a brutal and awesome game, I enjoyed the brief time I learned to play it, it's just not an easy sport to stay up on here, unless it's soccer or darts, we don't get a whole lot of international sports coverage, I mean I guess if I cared enough to go looking for it I'd find it, but I don't care, at all, I don't even care about American sports outside of the MLB this year, I refuse to watch them, and just like all the other leftist bullshit going on, they are too digging their own graves inserting the communist rhetoric into sports, and it may be unrepairable, this leftist shit is going to turn out to be a kiss of death to anyone who affiliates themselves with it, mark these words. sorry got off track there, oh fucking well!!
    • Oh I was most definitely lit, I was high as Giraffe pussy bro, there's shit that happened that one of my friends will say "remember when this shit happened" and I will not remember a single moment of it, you know like the years 98 to 2018, those years, so I am not to hard on myself for not remembering shit that I heard, because more times then not, I'll have heard it and completely do not remember, unless it stood out,, so yeah no bi-polar here, just completely fucking bashed for 2 decades, so don't be mean, or axe me to remember anything.
    • They certainly became more appealing to the masses under the Hagar regime but apart they were much better, Standing Hampton anyone? And yes I do prefer Dave over Sam in VH, the songs were more appealing to me, kind of like the Phil Collinless Leppard. As I prefer the Willis era. To each their own.
