One Desire - Midnight Empire

Recommended Posts

Sturm & Drang had some killer tunes especially on their last album. I also don't think I knew of the connection...

I know he led with "I think," but it wasn't a subjective statement. Freedom Rock is packed with hooks. Whether, or not, you like those hooks is a matter on its own. 

Nope, I dont hear any hooks. Simple as that. Not a matter of whether I like them or not, not one single song hooked me thus in my opinion they lack hooks.

Why is it that people on here love telling other people they are wrong when they are not a fan of something they are? I don't get it.

Good question. Why do you keep telling us we're wrong?

yeah he was singer of that band. 

Strum und Drang were pretty good but always veering slightly to that power metal sound.

RnR children showed the most promise and songs like that's the way I am & Life were great and a sign of potential.

defo realised that potential with One Desire though which in all fairness is a massive step up in quality 

This was always my fav track -

 

Yes, love this song!

Pains me to say it, but the face full of carpet is definitely right here. And I'm pretty sure 99.9% of people would agree with him, regardless of whether they like the CD or not.

I can look at pop charts and listen to stuff I absolutely despise to the point of wanting to murder it... but a hook's a hook. A lot of what I think is terrible music still has hooks - I just don't like them. I am totally cool with people saying they don't like whatever for whatever reason. For instance, HEAT is shit and I hate their pathetic hooks. But to say the hooks just don't actually exist at all - well, I'm sorry mate - it's a bit silly. We can all hear them clear as day. ;)

I'm baffled this wasn't a known fact for everyone (the Sturm Und Drang/One Desire connection).

I guess some of you weren't around at the time. So here you go, the original thread:

Well there's my memory for you right then and there. I knew it was somewhere in that gigantic brain of mine.

Honestly, I thought that was how we all became aware of the band. The previous singer was terrible.

The 10 seconds sounded super generic.

Now playing. Great song.

From Frontiers:

ONE DESIRE released their self-titled debut to massive acclaim. With a true hit single, 'Hurt' (nearly 2 million views on Youtube, 3 million streams on Spotify) the band found their way to the forefront of the melodic rock scene. A couple of successful European tours with Eclipse and H.E.A.T were followed by more dates and festivals through the end of 2017, before the band headed back to the studio to start work on their sophomore release.

In the works for a little over two years, the resulting album “Midnight Empire” generously repays the long wait the fans have had to suffer for new music from the band. It’s a more mature, at times adventurous, album, but still with an unbelievable hookiness that fans know and love from the debut. This is simply your album of the year if you like, no LOVE Melodic Rock. It’s going to be quite impossible to top this!

Tracklist:
1. Shadowman
2. After You’re Gone
3. Down And Dirty
4. Godsent Extasy
5. Through The Fire
6. Heroes
7. Rio
8. Battlefield Of Love
9. Killer Queen
10. Only When I Breathe

Line-up:
André Linman – lead vocals, guitars
Jimmy Westerlund – guitars, bg vocals, lead vocals (5)
Ossi Sivula – drums

Jonas Kuhlberg – bass

I wonder how Harem Scarem feel reading that comment? Not very subtle.

    • Yeah, that's great stuff. I have all the "Pop Evil" albums and I like everything I've heard (Boss's Daughter is one of my favourite ever songs), but it's all about finding the time to get into them. You seem to be the resident "Pop Evil" expert, so hit me with five tracks that will blow me away!  BTW, I've posted this clip before and I think you may have as well  but it never gets old.    
    • Here's two great, very iconic old school Aussie tracks that I have a connection with. My first job when leaving school at 16 was as a storeman for a stationery company. The other storeman was a guy named Robert "Huk" Treloar. He was a drummer and member of "Blackfeather" in 1978. This track from 1972 is their only hit. I remember him telling me, when they used to play clubs that this track was on the setlist about four times. He was also a member of "The Little Heroes" in 1982. That's actually him playing drums on the single. Again, as with Tommy Vucur from "Vanishing Point" who is a commercial painter that I work with now, it amazes me how these guys go back to being "normal people" and how hard it is to actually "make it" in the industry.      
    • This one's for Cody. Another reason for Alisson Langdon's perfection.    
    • yep that was a really good album but truth be told I would have preferred it as a full Degreed album - didn't really suit Ted's vocals for me 
    • Took a while to get good, but I like the new song too. Apparently I liked the first two as well, so fingers crossed it's a good album.  As for number of tracks, I'll take 10 over more any day of the week, unless it's one of my absolute favourite bands in a groove where they can do no wrong. BFT are certainly not that, so 10 is good for me. Hope they nail them all. 
    • Seen the new ones? fucking hilarious.    
    • I think Night Drive is awesome sounds like an end of credits track from an 80’s James Bond movie. Sounds like LeBrock which is great to my ears.   I’ve loved all three tracks so far. 
    • Personally I don't eat anything that isn't well cooked and this is a good reason to continue that habit! https://www.ctvnews.ca/health/doctors-remove-live-worm-from-woman-s-tonsil-1.5023719
