Not gonna lie, I had never heard of these guys before but YouTube recommened Hurt to me a couple of weeks ago, and I was interested enough to order the debut CD. Got it on Friday, and have been altern

Yum!

Good, solid start.

Have high expectations for this release.  Expecting it to be a top 5 album for me this year.

Their first album was one that was sort of a roller coaster for me.  I remember initially not caring much for it after my first listen.  I think I was expecting something heavier and a few tunes kinda threw me at first.  But it really grew on me after a few listens and still gets regular spins.

Should be an excellent release.

Another video out of synch. 

Also, why is Alessandro del Vecchio not in their playing keys? Is this not a Frontiers release??

That's a great first song.  I would like them to do more stuff that's heavy like "Buried Alive" but this track is more in line with "Hurt" which i also love.  Highly anticipating this album, that's for sure.

New tune out.  Sounds okay but not really overly grabbing me initially.  For me the first song released was better.

Cool song with a more metal feel...but 6 1/2 minutes is too long. It reminds me of something that would have been on Dream Theatre’s  Awake album. 🤷‍♂️

I’m worried like many other bands such as Dynasty and Art Nation that One Desire might drop the AOR vibe and go full melodic metal.

I'm not worried about them dropping the AOR vibe.  They had good variety on the last album and think they'll keep that variety at least based upon some early reviews I've read.  I actually like the heavier vibe of this so no complaint from me there.

Agree though that this is too long and I think that's definitely impacting my enjoyment level as it sorta just loses me along the way.  They could've easily trimmed 30-40 seconds at the beginning and end of this without changing the song at all.

This is one that when I get to the album, I'll probably find myself listening for the first few minutes then tapping that next track button.

Like that,don't hear much of a metal vibe from this that has been mentioned tbh? maybe the double bass kickdrum...the rest just sounds similar to the stuff from the debut album to my ears,the only slight negative for me is the length as it could easily end at 3.40 or so...but then it just seems to be the song repeated again to lengthen it?

Metal?... Not hardly. Sure, there's a more "crunchy" drum/guitar line and a bit more bombast to it, but it's definitely melodic rock... and me likey.

Actually, if you listen to the instrumentation/arrangement and some of the female backing vox, it reminds me of some of Within Temptation's recent material, but the lead vox and lead guitars are definitely melodic rock.

Yeah, metal?  Not hardly.  It sounds a lot like "Hurt" from the first album, which was definitely not metal.

Good track but I'll probably be editing my rip of it to get rid of the pointless intro at least.

As was mentioned, intro & outro don't add much and should have been edited a bit, but overall a good tune

    • 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.
