How do you pronounce "GOTTHARD"


Recommended Posts

  • 2022 Gold Donors

 I'm guessing they named themselves after the Gotthard Pass in Switzerland, but i've never really know how to pronounce it.

Is it Got-ard, Goth-ard or God-ard?

I've always said God-ard.

And you'd be right.

Named after Gotthard Pass or St. Gotthard himself, who the pass is named after. 

The self-titled album cover is of St. Gotthard.

I'm pretty sure that's the Shroud of Turin.

Oh, looks like you're correct. 

I remember researching the name years ago, and an image of a statute of St. Gotthard on the side of a church came up and it looked similar. So I just assumed that's who it was. 

Obviously I was wrong.

lol, I've always said (to myself, because I've never had an actual verbalised conversation about the band, ever) Got-ard.

Ha!

Yeah, that's what I mean.

Although, with my mates back in the day we always went with God-ard.

I really appreciate the input, but after the GOTTHARD debut/Shroud of Turin fiasco, I hope you don't mind if I request a second opinion.

I've always pronounced a blend of gotard and gothard
Kind of like my attempt at a scandanavian accent

I'll check google and see if they have a description of how to say it.

I just did and it seems like it might be Got-ard.

Surely Stefan knows.

    • My CD arrived. Gotta say it is one of the cheapest, shittiest packaging of a cd I have seen. It is just a double panel with a disk (no tray). No booklet, no lyrics, very little info. printed. Terrible artwork (as you can see above). Glad I only paid $17 as it isn't worth more than that presentation wise. Musically I have only listened once so far so will reserve judgement until then. Note - Jack Jones only played on one track, the lead single. But he is touring with the band.

    • Brilliant tune... reminds me of prime MSG, to be honest. Maybe a slight 'Anytime' vibe? But a magnificent song.  But the song I've had in my head all week is '100 thousand years.' Man I love that one. I rated this album fairly earlier in the year, but with a bit of a jumbled year of listening I haven't concentrated too much on albums this year. Listening to everything now, and I have to say that this album stood out as one I maybe did not give it's due credit. Those two songs are excellent, and I also like 'Get Away' and 'Crash & Burn' of the rest. Some nice gear on here. 
    • Exactly. Same goes for Sunstorm.
    • They're solid and consistent... just missing a bit of something to make them stand out for me, personally. The album is solid, like their other stuff. 
    • ADV wrote most of the debut. but that was before he burned himself out writing another 4000 songs of course the main problem is it isn't Revolution Saints. If you still want to showcase DC pick some more band members and call it something else but don't pretend its Rev Saints anymore. 
    • I don't have as much disdain for Del Vecchio as some do, but I can't help but feel like this sounds very... generic in an ADV kind of way? It's not that it's a bad song by any means, it's just that I've only listened to it once, but it feels like I've heard it about 300 times because it sounds like so many other songs Del Vecchio has produced. Secondly, since they've outright admitted that Revolution Saints was meant as a vehicle to showcase Castronovo, without Jack Blades and Doug Aldrich, I'm a little puzzled as to why they didn't just make a Deen Castronovo solo record instead. Surely at this point, anyone familiar with Frontiers, melodic rock music and especially Revolution Saints knows who he is.
