The Broken View

Big thanks to Gotthardline who was actually the one who directed my ears to this band, but the time has come where I'm going to drop a thread for these guys as I think there needs to be one on this forum. To this day they've only released a five song EP, a cover song, two post-EP tunes, and as I understand it a brand new single that is to feature on their debut album. A couple of chaps in the modern music thread have checked them out, but if you dig modern rock I'd highly recommend checking them out, and maybe someone can share in my anticipation for the new album.

Can't sugarcoat if from my perspective. If anyone recalls my adoration for Cauterize (which stands to this very day), this is probably the best band (to my ears) that I have heard since Cauterize. Of the 8 original songs they're released so far, I don't just think all are good... I fucking love each one of them. I play Cauterize's discography and every single song they ever recorded is perfection to me. Of course I'm jinxing these guys now, but I get the exact same vibe from this band. I don't know if many people dig this kind of stuff, but this highly emotive soul-on-the-stage type of gear blows me away. Anyway, to each all their own, and this is purely my thoughts. But hoping they can get a couple of new fans as I think they're brilliant. 

And just reading that back, for anyone who actually liked Cauterize (which I think amounts to one, possibly two of y'all) these guys could not sound more different to Cauterize, musically. There's not musical similarity, other than that the singer bleeds his words rather than sings. On that point, though, a lot of people mentioned they didn't like the singer in Cauterize's voice (which I could understand if you're just looking at things at surface level) but this guy's voice is velvet. 

Anyway, here's the new song, which already gave my chills on listen #1-

This is another sensational song released since the EP-

This is a cover of a Linkin Park song which I readily admit I already liked a lot. This version, however (and call me biased) is a stunning rework-

Just actually found this one now... a tune also released after the debut EP and not (hopefully yet) belonging to an album-

And then we have their debut EP-

And a couple of tunes off this one-

I'll be keeping a look out for this. 

I honestly believe the small handful of people that do will be heavily rewarded. Hope I don't set myself up for a letdown, but anticipation is unparalleled for me.

For anyone looking for an alternative to intercourse or fierce masturbation over the weekend, this album dropped a few hours ago and I dare say it could provide all the satisfaction you might obtain from the above activities. Awkward timing for me on a Friday afternoon heading into a weekend, but I'm going to try a few things to get this in my ears before Monday morning. Excited is what I am.

I'll have to pass. I spun it on Spotify and not really my thing. This whole modern rock sound has done the dash on me over the last few years.

Every song seems to be a soft whispered verse and then a massive wall of noise in the chorus with the dude screaming his head off 🤣

ill let Geoff masturbate alone 😉

lol, I'm not sure the dude does much screaming his head off on this one, cob. But all is good. I don't expect this to be for many folk here, but I'd feel like a criminal for not sharing this with anyone who might be interested.

It's like anything, I guess. If something moves me I get excited about it but I'd be foolish to assume that just because I love it everyone else will. If it worked like that we'd all like the same band and no one else. 

These days I dismiss far more modern rock than I act upon and it's very rare I stumble across a band that makes me feel something, which is what these guys do. Fiercely emotive, good lyrics, really strong hooks and a voice that feels like it's suckling my earlobes as I listen. To each their own, but at least you gave it a crack.  

Edit - I should add that I spun it twice today during a couple of solo drives, starting at 5am this morning. One way to get the day started, I guess. As expected, I love every second of it but that's not unexpected and I can't wait for even more spins.

Hey Geoff, any idea where I can purchase the CD?  Have you got one yet?  Shipping from the US seems to not be an option at the moment.  Great find mate - loving this a lot!

Nah mate, no CD yet. Only available for pre-order on their website-

https://www.thebrokenview.com/shop

Like you say, though, it's sadly no longer a financial option for me to buy physical CDs. You can download the album from iTunes, or it's on Spotify, which sadly, is where music's at these days. 

This is one CD I'd like to aim to purchase, along with LeBrock from this year... because it'd be cool to own them both. But not sure it'll be financially realistic... 

As for being a great find, it was actually Gotthardline who introduced this band to the forum so I'm only passing on his awesome find. :)

Couldn't actually love the new album more if I tried.

It's more the principle of the thing than anything else. $36 for a CD is what I used to pay way back when I started for the most expensive imports I could find. I don't have the means to be spending $36 for CDs in 2021, cob.

Yeah $36 for the CD and another $36 (US) for postage to Australia.  That is seriously what is costs nowadays to have 1 CD posted to Australia.

I live in Australia too and I have NEVER spent those amounts for an album. There are usually sellers on ebay from the UK or US who offer free shipping. Sometimes I just have to wait a bit with a saved search until one at the right price pops up. But with so much music to enjoy, waiting is fine. Crazy Lixx new album for instance, waited, a copy just popped up new with free postage for $20. Happy days.

Out of interest I went to their website and the pre-order page for the CD. CD costs $15, and the postage to Australia is $11. So $26 total. If you love this band I don't think that is unreasonable at all for a physical copy.

Don't really think anyone else will care, but fyi they recently dropped a new video from the magnificent 'You're not alone' from the album from last year. Gotta say, this thing will end up being in my all-time top 10 albums, to be honest. Love it so much. To each their own and stuff, ay. 

Anyway, here's this tune (with a long video intro) featuring my favourite verse of 2022 (the second one). Yes, it's just a love song, but it captivates me-

    • This seems like something that would be massively exciting maybe five or six years ago but now, not so much. I'm just so bored with the Frontiers factory churning out studio project after studio project with the same songwriters, the same production, and random hodgepodges of vocalists...year after year after year. I'm just not interested in this stuff anymore, I'll listen but the odds that I'll come back to it (let alone buy the album) are low. Those songs are mediocre. They're not ADV's worst but they are not his best either. IMO Robbie steals the show in both of them. Why is ADV still doing backing vocals for a project created specifically for THREE vocalists?  P.S. that band name SUCKS lol
    • New single 'April Rain' from the album 'Naked Soul'. And ADV ruining everything... From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce T3nors, a very special new AOR project. Two of America’s greatest AOR singers, Robbie LaBlanc and Toby Hitchock join forces with one of Sweden’s finest AOR singers, Kent Hilli to form the vocali trio of T3nors. These absolutely outstanding vocalists have come together on one glorious melodic rock album, "Naked Soul", which will be released on February 10, 2023.  The story behind this record actually dates back quite a few years as Frontiers has been wanting to do a “three tenors” type of record for quite some time. Given the extremely high level of AOR vocal talent that the label has worked with in the past and continues to work with today, the idea never really lost steam. The issue was always finding the right pairing of three singers and the timing for the individual singers to have holes in their schedule to record. With the onset of the global pandemic in 2020, everyone's availability, for better or for worse, became more flexible and the idea started to become reality.  Pairing Robbie, Toby, and Kent together seemed an ideal team up and all three were enthusiastic about the idea when approached to participate. The rest, as they say, is history. Kent Hilli is the newest of the three singers on the scene, but has quickly made an impact with the albums he has released with his main band Perfect Plan, as well as being the new frontman for GIANT, solo material, and guest appearances with Restless Spirits, the melodic rock project from Lords Of Black guitarist Tony Hernando.  Toby Hitchcock is an American singer known for his solo albums as well as his work with the esteemed melodic rock genius Jim Peterik in Pride Of Lions. Robbie LaBlanc is an American singer, guitarist, and songwriter known for his work with Blanc Faces, Find Me, a project with The Murder Of My Sweet drummer/producer Daniel Flores, East Temple Avenue, and more.  If you are a lover of all things AOR, then T3nors' debut album, "Naked Soul" is a can't miss release!   Tracklisting:1.

    • Very sad news. She had a lovely voice. I absolutely love both 'Rumours' and 'Tango In The Night'...both part of my musical journey. 
    • Superb album...one of the best pure Westcoast releases this year. Love the Chaka Khan cover of 'Ain't Nobody' as well. Great stuff
    • Not perfect by a long way, but the album a hell of a lot better than some in the other stuff Frontiers put out on a regular basis
    • Very nice...Move out of the way ADV, Dennis is back .....very solid band with The Greatest Wonder especially being absolutely fabulous. Looking forward to this one a lot
    • I I know I'm way behind the 8 ball here as I had never paid attention to these guys either but just clicked on the Daylight video myself and dug it.  Found my way to this thread and digging some of these other tunes too.  I think the different kind of sound is appealing to me a bit at the moment.  It's almost like if Axel Rose were fronting Tora Tora or something.   Gonna have to give the album a listen to see if it sticks but initially Daylight, Wall Said To Call and Feel Alright are sounding interesting to me from just watching the videos above.  Will have to check the album out. 
    • I used to love this band so much on their first 3 albums. Who could have guessed it would end up with this complete shit show. Bands should NOT air their dirty laundry in public
    • Def Leppard/ Magnum - St. Albans City Hall  April 5th 1980 Saxon - St. Albans City Hall  May 2nd 1980  
    • Just clicked on this to check it out as I had never heard of this band....Not too bad!  Kinda reminds me musically of early Tora Tora but I hear some Axel Rose in those vocals. I might have to check this album out to see if anything else grabs me on it.
