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 fact you even bother to give this shit a chance always amazes me.

Said the man that follows a religion?

Like I usually say in these threads, there's a time and a place. Sometimes you just want your face torn off by music, for whatever reason, and this stuff is perfect for it. I guess it surprises me a bit how far I've come, but I love this stuff above. Needs those killer choruses, though, or I'm not interested.

I was commending you, dumbass. ;}

Usually, when a band releases six albums that are not my thing I don't decide to check out their next album to see if they've changed. I always let you put in the work.

Haha, nice commendation. ;)

Yeah, I know what you're saying but I have seen many times where a rock/metal band has, for want of a better term, "sold out" and had a stab at "commercial success" and thus recorded an album with melody to try and appeal to the masses. Which is where I chime in. 

Think of artists like Cher, Alice Cooper, even Aerosmith to a degree... I dunno, there's a million bands from the genres we like that have sucked for the most part and randomly produced one good album. These new modern bands are just the same in another era. Especially the ones you can hear potential in, you always keep an ear out, just in case.

Out of curiosity, you dig any of the tunes above? I actually find them pretty awesome... not just decent. I know they're harsh as a ballsack across the face, but the choruses are killer.

I haven't actually got around to listening to them. Will do that now. 

But, what I wanna know is, is there someone recommending you give something a try, because their style may have changed, or do you really slog through hours of shit albums to find that one?

Nah, no recommendations for me. I just go on vibes and if I get a sense something may be interesting. I'm convinced I miss far more than I actually find, which a lot of new threads here make me realise.

    • First, I'm just impressed you found a video where you can actually hear Lzzy; everything I'd seen the last 2 days was terrible sound quality. With that said, she sounds fine. Not gonna make anyone forget Sebastian, or Erik for that matter, but she'll do a good job filling in 👍
    • Was this release on an EP CD?

    • From Escape Music: KEYS has just completed their second album, “The Grand Seduction”.   This all-keyboard band is the brainchild of singer Jake E (Cyhra, Amaranthe and others) and keyboardist Mark Mangold (Touch, Drive, She Said, Michael Bolton, Cher, Paul Rogers and others) with Emanuel Bagge (Sweden’s Got Talent Finalist) on additional vocals and keys, Irwan Fabrien (noted keyboard guitar sound designer) with help of drum gurus Alex Landenburg (Kamelot, Cyhra and others).   Featuring live performances with three keyboardists and a huge battery of keyboards, this ambitious band brings keyboard and instrumental prowess to new heights while playing songs that run the gamut from scathing progressive melodic forays to catchy and melodic rock anthems …and Jake’s award-winning voice (Burrn Vocalist of the year 2020).   Previous KEYS album also featured guest keyboard additions by Charlie Calv of Angel and others.   Though songs are first and foremost, this band shows the versatility of keyboards in this day and age.  These artfully crafted songs are ripe with scathing synth, organ and “guitar” pyrotechnics, dazzling time signatures and drumming, bombastic choruses and “guitar” riffs (played on keyboards with the now available plug in’s that perfectly emulate guitars).  As Mark and Jake are first and foremost award winning songwriters, they never lose sight of the composition and melodies, though couched in the very signature and hard to pigeon hole sound (isn’t that the whole point?) of this band and Jake's 4 octave vocal range.   Release Date: 19th July 2024 CD Catalogue No: ESM389   CD Track List: 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 9:02 2. ALL I NEED  6:49 3. SHINING SAILS  5:51 4. SWITCHBLADE  6:02 5. VORTEX   4:06 6. SKIN AND BONES  6:42 7. TURN TO DUST    4:42 8. CRAZY TOWN   7:43 9. THOUGHT WE HAD FOREVER  6:04 10. THE WORLD IS OURS (Curse the Lies)   4:02   Vinyl Track List: Side A 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 6:47 2. ALL I NEED 6:49 3. SHINING SAILS 5:51 4. VORTEX 4:06   Side B 1. SWITCHBLADE 6:02 2. SKIN AND BONES 6:42 3. TURN TO DUST 4:42 4. CRAZY TOWN 7:43   PRODUCED BY MARK MANGOLD AND JAKE E MIXED BY MARK MANGOLD MASTERED BY MAOR APPELBAUM
