Fuck Yeah!!

Anywho...Hit and miss for me,loved Screaming For Adrenaline,was a bit meh on the others until Katharsis which I enjoyed,but i'm all ears to hear what they're at now...I take it no more new band members in or out from the last release or is that just being silly?

Sounds better than the last album but damn this band has gone downhill in recent years 

Pretty decent song though I guess 

Agreed. Far off from their previous brilliance.

Not really sure this is a ‘band’ anymore.. or if it is it’s a one man band. 

Massive fan of the previous Cruz outputs barring Katharsis.. few good tunes and the rest was bang average. Such a shame the original 4 disbanded - the talent was insane. 

Bad Blood Rising is my favourite of theirs. So good. Previous 2 before that are awesome also.

New tune is decent enough. Next single ‘Crossfire’ out in March.

Where did the other boys end up? Are they still making music?

As far as I’m aware Middy the bass player wasn’t doing anything until forming Bodom After Midnight with Alexi Laiho, sadly that won’t be anymore. RIP Alexi. 

Drummer Taz I have no idea. Not sure he has done anything notable since. 

Guitarist Johnny has a studio and has been recording / producing. He is producing the new Reckless Love album I believe (including last years single ‘Loaded’). 

I always hoped once Cruz disbanded the remaining 3 guys would continue. Serious amount of talent and one hell of a live show. Shame really.

Not sure if I like this:

Santa Cruz's Archie Cruz reveals he's finished his next album. It will be a solo album for which Archie has written and also recorded all the instruments himself.

Guess I missed this last year. But that is not good at all. :(

"Under The Gun", the first cut from the upcoming 5th consecutive Santa Cruz album "The Return Of The Kings" out Feb 25th. Pre-save NOW

If this is the first song, looks like Moonchild and Crossfire don't make the cut, but then again they have a history of releasing non album singles.

Well that's about a thousand times better than 'Moonchild.' But you don't reckon this is on the album? That'd be sad.

Well it says that the upcoming single is the first from the new album, so am guessing neither of these two will make the cut.

To my knowledge they released two non album tracks between Self titled and Bad blood rising (Skydiving without a parachute & Drag me down) .

Isn't Archie playing all the instruments on that video? LOL

That's what I was trying to figure out with the drummer. His face is always obscured but is it him too, even though both share the screen at several moments? It's actually a really awkward clip because of this.

Agreed. I kept trying to get a face shot of each member but they are all onscured or it's Archie. I think it's all Archie and obviously very awkward.

One semi decent face shot and it didn't look like him on drums, but it was still blurry.

Have to say though, regardless of who is or isnt in the band, this is a catchy as hell song and the two guitar solos fucking rip.

If this is the direction the new album goes rather that the last album and Moonchild, then it could be a true return to form and I would not care if Jesus, Hitler and Osama Bin Laden were members.

    • I know I've posted about this hombre several times before, but apparently not in his own thread. This must change as I find him to be so awesome but no one seems to acknowledge his existence. Not just here, but his youtube channel and reach seems to be so small. Crazy for someone who produces bone crunching quality on a madly consistent basis.  Eric Dalton     -    Playing Favorites (2022) 1    .    Calling Card 2    .    Oblivion 3    .    Head in the Clouds 4    .    X My Heart 5    .    Infection 6    .    My Demons 7    .    Solace 8    .    A Part of Me 9    .    Without You 10    .    Deception     Sorry, I know I've posted this before, but his youtube channel features all three of his (excellent) albums in full if interest permits. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb2I3-4_UvFnWWTcXBBLPYA  
    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive      
    • Welcome, album of the year? Love this project with vigour. I snuck 'Saturday' on the playlist I put on with the kids in the car, lol. Can't wait to hear any of the songs I haven't already heard and showered in love from this. 
    • Did anyone notice these guys released another new album?  As expected, it's pretty weak and more proof of their solid decline.  HOWEVER!  There is actually a good song on it. It's only one, but I kind of clapped and cheered when I heard this. I used to love these guys so much, and still love the albums I always loved from these guys but it's been some barren years. It was good to hear them do what they used to do with great ease.      
    • Couple of okay songs, but otherwise as expected above. No surprises, exactly what you'd expect from these guys in 2022.     
    • Not every song is a hit, but another pretty decent one mini-album. I like some of the gear on this one.  Villain of the Story     -    Divided 1    .    Never Again 2    .    Jester 3    .    Karma 4    .    Under My Skin 5    .    Losing Control 6    .    Wrong 7    .    Don't Go 8    .    Divided    
    • Not sure if folk know, but they got back together and released an EP this year. Anberlin     -    Silverline 1    .    Two Graves 2    .    Nothing Lost 3    .    Body Language 4    .    Asking 5    .    Circles It's not amazing, but I do really like this song from it-  
    • Not an amazing album, but pretty solid with a couple of very nice tunes-     They have a very comprehensive youtube channel for anyone unsure and wanting to give everything a listen- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYECJVZLOQebjAuj_HMKLjg
