Alien - Into The Future (2020)


Recommended Posts

November 27th, 2020 Alien will release the album “Into the Future”. This record is taking the band from being merely an AOR band to more of a hard rock band with a heavier sound and more guitars. Creating “Into The Future” was really a journey back to the days of being free in a musical way to experiment with arrangement, sounds, melodies and just having a blast while doing it. Once again to the band's delight, Janet Morrison Minto has been a part of the lyrics writing and as always with great commitment. ALIEN is now Jim Jidhed, Tony Borg and Toby Tarrach (d). The album was recorded in various studios in Sweden incl. JM Studios in Gothenburg, Borg Music & Recording Studio in Stockholm, Music Family studio in Särö and Hope Studio in Gothenburg. The mix and mastering was handled by Erik Martensson (ECLIPSE) at Blowout Production in Sollerön.

Out November 27th 2020 via AOR Heaven. 
 

Looking forward to this one!

All I recall about Alien was a most awesome cover of The Air That I Breathe

But for sure I like the sound of the song above.
Close your eyes and listen to it and you can't help but imagine a 25 year old kid singing. still has a youthful voice.

Pretty much the same as you guys - Debut is excellent but not much happening after that. Jim’s vocals still hold up really well and that track sounds promising. With Martensson mastering you know it should sound good also.

This should be great. "Tears Don't Put Out The Fire" is one of my alltime favourite ballads.

Am I sensing no love for 'Shiftin' Gear?' Very fine album, imo. The 1989 s/t album (actually their second album, and I never heard the debut - which does have mostly the same songs) is definitely their finest moment, but I'm also a big fan of 'Shiftin' Gear.' After that it's rubbish, but they do have two good albums. 

Anyway, I don't mind this new sound. Don't really like that tune, but I quite like the sound/style and will definitely look forward to this album. Still plenty of potential there...

So I listened to this and it's pretty bland on teh first listen.
Only real stand out was the last song, because it's a slow ballad and suits the bland vibe.
Hopefully will get better with more listens...

    • I hate threads like this. My expectations for this are so high they will certainly drop when I hear it. Then afetr more listens it will surge I;m sure, but there is no way it can come close to what i am expecting lol
    • Album out now... this ROCKS!!!                         https://gbdeclaration.org/
    • AWESOME!!! Song...   https://gbdeclaration.org/
    • going to play today at some point. expecting a cheesefest but in a good way 
    • I've never seen that before on Spotify - says full album available soon. it's not clear if they've held in back or there's been an error uploading it 
    • From what I understand, Pete and Steve are extremely pissed at Mark "Gus" Scott. https://www.madrock1025.com/trixter-members-go-public-with-feud/ In an argument that’s gone uncomfortably public, Trixter drummer Mark “Gus” Scott has fired back at his disgruntled bandmates, claiming he only wants what’s best for the group. The feud began when Steve Brown and P.J. Farley told interviewers Scott was on “the sh*t list beyond belief,” comparing him to disobedient dog. Now, in a new interview, Scott says the band’s problems go well beyond just one dissenting member. “I don’t know if the ‘bad dog’ is the best analogy and the best manner in which to visualize what’s happened with Trixter,” he says. “I think there’s been different ideologies within the band for a very, very long time. We’ve been together over 30 years. So I think there’s always been — I don’t wanna say a ‘rift,’ but more recently, if there was a rift, it was certainly becoming more and more exponentially grown.” While not naming names, Scott says his issues are with the band’s “leadership,” adding he refuses to be “led by ignorance.” Ouch. How long will it be before Trixter either calls it quits or parts ways with Scott? Have the members of Trixter been together too long?
    • What's the story there? I recall a couple videos between the two "new" albums that portrayed them all as good buddies. 
    • A magnificent hidden gem from Ted Poley.    
    • Ok, so they did shoot a video for "Breakdown." I fucking love this song!!
