Like with the last album Rust they are also releasing this album on MiniDisc, which is way cool for us retroheads. As far as I know, only they and Nitrate still support MiniDisc.

new single premieres tonight:

 

Heard this today... what a killer track. Sounds like 'Generation Wild' era Crashdiet.

Haven't been too enthused about recent releases, but this well and truly propelled this to my most anticipated album of the year. Very excited.

First spin and OMG this is awesome!

just got through first spin. Very good, massive ballsy sound.

There were a couple of average songs I thought but at least 4 killers which were debut worthy

Better than Rust and The Savage Playground but not as good as Generation Wild or the debut.

Ooops, wrong, this if from my 3rd favorite song from Manowar :P

 

(Btw, Shine on vocal lines reminds me exactly the same titled opus from Riot (can't stop missing you, Mark Reale )

 

Patiently awaiting forPete's message to get this on vinyl + tees (the only band tees I'm buying these days, hopefully Gildan fabric-free!

Haven't really been into these guys over the years but gave this a listen and pretty darn good stuff.  Seems quite a bit better to me than their last album as that one never grabbed me when I listened to it.    

This is just seems a bit more melodic and catchy with a much bigger sound and better songs.  Basically seems closer to melodic hard rock than sleaze to me, not that it matters.  This album reminds me quite a bit of Temple Balls Pyromide in a few songs.

Nice surprise.

It's an interesting point you bring up there because I had similar thoughts. 'Together whatever' is 100% pure, to the bone, Crashdiet, and for me, easily my favourite song on the album. 

This is literally just after one spin, so don't read too much into it yet, but I thought that regardless of how good the rest of the album was, I didn't get strong Crashdiet vibes for a lot of it. Really cool disc, and I'm very interested to see how repeated listens treat it, but that'd be my first impression - really good album - and far better than their recent ones, but not all instantly recognisable as Crashdiet if you heard it on a radio somewhere.

I think that's why I like it so much lol!

I tried yesterday going back into their back catalog wondering if I really missed something with these guys.  And despite really digging this new one, I'm not finding a whole lot I like.  There's a couple songs on Generation Wild that sound okay and maybe a few other songs.  But nowhere near enough to really make me bother.  They just seemed to have more of a typical sleaze vibe that I've never been huge into and I dismissed them.

This new one though just feels like some killer melodic hard rock not far removed from stuff like Temple Balls, Kissin Dynamite, etc.  From my point of view, it almost  feels like a new band to me or something which kinds of points to exactly what you said with it maybe not sounding like Crashdiet.

Maybe part of it for me it the singer change too.  I think this is only their second alum with their current singer.  Maybe I need to revisit the last album but I feel like this new one is just much bigger sounding and catchier than their last one.  

Will have to see how this holds up to repeated listens but I'm thinking this is definitely among my favorites so far this year.
