Give me some new album ideas

Recommended Posts

As i just posted in another thread, I'm off to China in a few days.
Going solo, so I spend my days without much conversation as where I go there isn't much English spoken.

So I can go for hours at a time with earphones in (not something I get to do very often at home)
So I'm after some new albums to try out.

Lately I've been listening a lot to Shiraz Lane, Cats In Space, Gun, Roxanne, so any music like them would be great, but also any other hard rock with hooks and melodies would be good.

Doesn't have to be that recent

Yowza, from Shiraz Lane to Cats in Space covers a WIDE gamut of styles.

Well-received more well-known bands form the last several years:

Art Nation
Brother Firetribe
Care of Night
Crazy Lixx
The Defiants
Dynazty
Eclipse
Find Me
First Signal
Harem Scarem
H.E.A.T.
Kissin' Dynamite
The Night Flight Orchestra
One Desire
State of Salazar
Treat
W.E.T.

If you have any interest in metal, Sabaton,  Blind Guardian, and Iron Savior are can't miss IMO. Primal Fear is good as well. Amaranthe, Dragonforce, and Avantasia can be fun listens as well. Ghost for something a little off the beaten path.

If you start getting into one-offs or indpendent/self-released material, especially going back in time, the list is endless.

You listen to Wigelius? Also, Arion's first album, "Last of Us," was a fookin' stonker.

I do need to try and get into some more local stuff.

I started listening to it via the Hard Rock Show but then they ripped into Michael Sweet, which is generally cool, but they jaked and belittled his wife dying of cancer which was pretty fucked so I haven't seen anything they do since.

Airbourne are defs not for me though.

Well, okay, um, idk, I like Last Train by Holy Soldier & it isn't too churchy for you if you ain't into Christian stuff it's a story kinda so all the songs are about a reckless life pretty much except for Last Train itself. Mr. Moonlight by Foreigner is great too!

Kyle Sweet was so beautiful ♥️ Sorry off topic she's just someone I feel saddest about dying. 😔

I never met her, but they way they made fun of anyone dying what just disgusting.
michael can be a dick, and deserves most of the stuff that comes his way, but it was way too far and really the lowest for of critic.
Doubt he ever saw it, but it spoke volumes about the people who made the show.

Here's a couple that you can immerse yourself in. 

Arjen Lucassen's Star One

- Space Metal

- Victims of the Modern Age

Each track is based on a work of science fiction.

Giant's first two albums are absolute classics. If you've never given them a chance, now's as good a time as any.

Gotthard: just putting this here as a precautionary measure. Tell me you're familiar with them already. If not, their catalogue up to 2009 is enough occupy the rest of the year. 

Incura kinda reminds me a little of Shiraz Lane. They might be too weird, though. 

Khymera is another solid band. I'd suggest starting with their latest album, "The Grand Design," as it's the least synthy. 

And a few others. I'm guessing most of these you already know, but maybe something slipped through your radar:

Babylon A.D.

Blue Tears

Brighton Rock

Casanova

Charade

Crown of Thorns

Cruzh

Dynazty

Gorky Park - Moscow Calling

Great King Rat 

Killer Dwarfs

KIX

Leverage

Lion

The Magnificent

Mariah

The Poodles

Pretty Boy

Red Dawn

ReVertigo

Revolution Saints

Shotgun Messiah

Sic Vikki

Steelheart

Sturm Und Drang

Thunder

Transit

Trixter

Von Groove

Wall of Silence

Waltham

Wild Lies

Wildness

Or here's an idea, go over to the main site and look at our Top 5 lists from the last 20 years. ;)

Seriously, at least over the last 5 years, I've posted Youtube links of sample songs from each of the top 5 albums from Mike, Pete, Jez, Terry, and myself.

Here's the 2018 list to get you started:

    • From Frontiers: Here's your first taste of JORN's new covers album, "Heavy Rock Radio II - Executing The Classics": 'Lonely Nights' by Bryan Adams. As usual, JORN takes a song and puts his own unique stamp on it, as only he can. Tremendous! "Heavy Rock Radio II - Executing The Classics" is out January 24, 2020. Pre-order here: https://radi.al/HRRII For more details about the release, keep on reading.... Simply one of the greatest rock singers of our time, Jorn Lande returns with a second installment of covers of classics from artists and bands that have meant something special to him and helped forge this talented man's own unique style. Through Jorn's extensive career, which includes more than 40 albums of mostly original songs, he has recorded great versions of several rock classics from classic bands such as DIO, Thin Lizzy, UFO, Deep Purple, and many more. Every song JORN covers is treated with the utmost respect and "Jorn-ized" accordingly, just like the first "Heavy Rock Radio" album showed with amazing cover versions of evergreen songs such as "I know There's Something Going On", "Hotel California", "You're The Voice," "Running Up That Hill," and several others. Fans showed a lot of enthusiasm and interest for those versions, so a follow-up covers album seemed a no-brainer. This second album, "Heavy Rock Radio II – Executing The Classics", is not an ordinary album of cover songs, it is truly a songbook of hits. Featured - among others - are great versions of Pages’ "I Do Believe in You," Foreigner's "Night Life", Don Henley's "New York Minute," Deep Purple's "Bad Attitude," a stunning metal version of Peter Gabriel's "The Rhythm of the Heat," and of course an unmissable Dio cover, "Mystery". More "jukebox" type of covers include "Quinn the Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn)" originally recorded by Bob Dylan, Bryan Adams' "Lonely Night", Jackie DeShannon "Needles And Pins", and a very personal choice from the man himself, a Russ Ballard song, “Winning”. Jorn says: "The most important thing was to treat these songs with respect towards the original versions, my goal was always to think that the original artist would be honoured and find my version relevant. At the same time my intention was never to try to compete with the original song and artist, but make it a strong alternative version to enjoy." Jorn's catalogue is getting too long to include in brief press statements, and his innovative and creative skills have led to him selling millions of albums worldwide and being a frequent entry on sales charts around the world, including Billboard. Worth a mention is his years with German based Masterplan, whom he recorded three albums with. Jorn continues his rock crusade, and there are no signs of him slowing down yet. Tracklist: 1. Lonely Nights 2. Winning 3. New York Minute 4. Needles And Pins 5. Love 6. I Do Believe In You 7. Nightlife 8. Bad Attitude 9. Quinn The Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn) 10. Mystery 11. The Rhythm Of The Heat 12. Hotel California (Remastered - Bonus Track) 13. The Final Frontier (Radio Edit - Bonus Track) 14. Die Young (Radio Edit - Bonus Track) 15. Naked City (Radio Edit - Bonus Track) 16. Ride LIke The Wind (Remastered - Bonus Track) Line-up: Jorn Lande - vocals Jgor Gianola - guitars Trond Holter - guitars Tore Moren - guitars Luca Princiotta - guitars Andrea Seveso - guitars  Sid Ringsby - bass Alessandro Del Vecchio - keyboards Francesco Jovino - drums      
    • Mine arrived today so ill get a few listens over the weekend  
    • I've not even listened to Tesla 
    • Think part of the problem is that last track should have been called 'off and off' instead of 'on and on'. Really adds nothing. 
    • As bland as the mafia factory could conjure up.
    • I liked it 9 really great tracks off that one My current top albums 1. Cats In Space 2. The New Roses 3. Tesla 4. Donnie Vie 5. Mike Tramp Sammy Hagar's again was average with only 3 great songs Just saw a new Taylor Hawkins album is out so that should be good Also SOTO, Station, First Signal, and Black Ouk County to give more time to as well.
    • Much better clip. always happy to see half naked dancing girls, but without mixing them with old dudes which is just creepy. Song is pretty good.
    • Coincidentally, a clip came up on my Facebook feed which was Behind The Vinyl Dee Snider I Wanna Rock During this one, Dee himself says that they are seen as a one hit wonder and that his comeback is "no we're a 2 1/2 hit wonder" - adding in We're Not Gonna Take It and half of the Price The Behind The Vinyl clips are pretty good (Youtube). Dee also does WNGTI but other artists are interesting as well. Run DMC Walk This Way was good, and Babe Styx was interesting. Spandau Ballet, Glass Tiger, etc etc
    • For me, off the past albums I selected.... Are you Ready to Rock - 6 songs Bleed & Scream - 4 songs Armageddonize - 6 songs Monumentum - 6 songs   Haven't got the first 2 albums yet.
