H.E.A.T. - Will You Be (New Single)

Like that...so will Extra Force be an a cd of leftovers/unused material from the last one?

Never mind...just read this...

Following hymns of praise for their 2022 album “Force Majeure”, H.E.A.T promise to deliver more of the same energy in 2023. It was the band’s idea to celebrate the bond to their loyal fans and to create a strictly limited collector’s item: “Extra Force” is set to be released on September 1st, and includes a collection of new studio tracks, unreleased live recordings, and H.E.A.T classics previously sung by Erik Grönwall, now for the first time with original singer Kenny Leckremo on vocals! The specially priced LP comes as limited CD Digipak and limited 1LP Black Vinyl. “Extra Force” is a must-have addition to any H.E.A.T fan’s collection!

Oh Yes! Sounds like old school H.E.A.T, absolutely love it :-)

It does sound like a song that could've been on their first 2 albums...but that's not great for me as I didn't much care for those albums.  

It's okay though and sounds way better than Feeedom.

I see they also have a semi-new album coming out that has these songs and a bunch of live songs.  Can't say I have much desire to hear Kenny doing Erik's songs live though when Erik did them better.

Kenny era is awesome 

Erik era is awesome

Kenny trying to recreate Erik era has not been good at all for me. 
 

I much prefer the last two tracks with Kenny sounding like the first two albums than last year’s release that did nothing for me.

Not being a particular fan of early H.E.A.T. this does not sound like a good idea.

Love this song. Stretching out two new songs into a 10 track album seems a bit silly, though.

Well I would hope that "specially priced" means "fucking cheap" :lol:

So decided to order this even though I still have not bought Force Majeure, mainly because of the price.

I must admit I wasn't exactly blown away with HEAT II, even with Erik being on it and I think that was because they were attempting to recapture the sound of the first two albums, which I really don't care for. I will only get the last album when I can find it cheaper. This one though is pretty "meh" though. I don't hate Kennys vox but they are so generic compared to Erik.

Most of the songs they re-recorded and the live tracks are from HEAT II so that goes against it too for me.

Overall only really bought it for collectors sake.

Gave it a brief listen.  The original Kenny songs ate okay and the live versions of songs he did are fine.  

But for me, the Erik songs he tries to do just doesn't work.  Erik did them better....just leave those alone.

I saw they're coming out with reworked 2023 versions of the first 2 albums.  I think that'll be more interesting to me than this.  I'd like to hear those first two albums with a puncher, more modern production.  I wonder if Kenny will redo his vocals on those albums?  I think he sings with more power now than he did then.  They'll probably just end up being pure remasters though.

Unless they no longer have the rights to those albums, I really do not see the point of reworking them. I get it when bands are signed to bigger labels and the label owns the rights to them, but I don't see how this benefits anyone with a band like H.E.A.T.

I have no issue with bands regaining the rights to their material this way, but just re-recording for the sake of it ... nah.

I also understand why a band might re-record stuff with a different singer (although as you say, the re-records on this do not work).

Remaster by all means if you think it will improve the sound, but even that can actually end up with a worse version than the original if not done properly.

Just touching on a couple of the recent comments. 

I also really don't understand redoing Erik's songs with Kenny's vocals. Doesn't make sense to me at all. Yes, they sound good (to me) because they're excellent songs and I like Kenny's voice. But Erik Gronwall is one of the best, or even arguably the best voice in hard rock at this moment in time. So why anyone thinks there's any need to re-do those songs, I don't understand. Obviously Kenny will do them live, and that's cool... but I don't understand the need for re-recorded studio versions and don't think it really aids anyone, to be honest. 

As for re-recording the first two albums; I would absolutely love to hear that. For many bands this is a bad idea, but in HEAT's case, those first two albums are a far cry from what HEAT have evolved into. And don't get me wrong, I love the albums as they are. But I'd also be lying if I said I wouldn't love to hear them featuring their current beefy, heavier sound and a big thick production job. I think those albums redone could be a killer idea. Hope it happens, but guess we'll see...

    • you can choose to use your own lyrics or just describe the premise and it generates them for you - the more detail you put in the closer it will be to what you want.You have 3000 characters of space.  You then describe how the song sounds.  It then creates 2 different songs, but you can carry on creating as many options as you want. You only get 10 songs a day though on the free options and you can't use commercially on the free version - you know like upload to Spotify etc. 
    • So I'm currently on my summer hols which gives me time to catch up on alot of music I have missed or haven't listened to in a while. Anyway yesterday I was listening to Broadside - Hotel Bleu ( great album btw). Now I have Spotify set to play similar artists once the album finishes and Honey Revenge were one of those artists. Liked the song I heard so checked out their debut album Retrovision and it's a cracker. The duo are Devin Papadol- vocals and Devin Lloyd - guitar and together have produced and album full of perfect pop rock. Highly Recommended and well worth a listen.   Full album ...  
    • So, I'll ask again, but what's the go here mate? Are they your lyrics?  Do you type in a specific genre and instrument combination? What about the melody? I should check it out myself when I have time, but I'm very curious. 
    • Nice, they love "Tiger Tiger" in Japan.  
    • VIXEN Announces New Singer ROSA LARICCHIUTA June 21, 2024 VIXEN has recruited Rosa Laricchiuta(TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, HEADPINS),as the band's new lead singer following the recent departure of Lorraine Lewis. Laricchiuta made her live debut with VIXEN earlier tonight (Friday, June 21) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California alongside GREAT WHITE, SLAUGHTER and QUIET RIOT.   Laricchiuta is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Montreal, Quebec. After several years cutting her teeth with live shows, she auditioned for the third season (2015) of "La Voix", Quebec's version of the popular TV show "The Voice". Rosa had an instant connection with the legendary francophone rocker Éric Lapointe and chose him as her coach. Rosa showed a solid stage presence, with remarkable intensity and a voice so powerful it sent her straight to the Grand Finale where she shared the stage with DEF LEPPARD, Kelly Clarkson, Jean Leloup and her idol, Melissa Etheridge. She left a lasting impression as she won over millions of viewers who named her the new "it" female rocker of Quebec.   She then released one album in the Quebec market before beginning work on her first English language album in 2016. That album, "Free", was released the following year and at the end of the year, she joined the popular American band TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRAfor their annual mega tour of the United States. Laricchiuta's hard rock project BLACK ROSE MAZE released its self-titled debut album in August 2020 via Frontiers Music Srl. VIXEN has more than a dozen more shows scheduled for the summer and early fall.
    • Huh, how odd. I just checked and it's indeed there. I guess I'm blind.
    • I see them both in my spotify?! Remixes sound good and better than originals to me!
    • How odd. It appears that only the first remixed album is on Spotify. I usually don't bother to listen to remixes, but I think I'll check this one out.
    • Apparently the first two H.E.A.T albums have been remixed and are on YouTube. I personally don't think there was anything wrong with the originals and some of these new versions seem overproduced to me, but I'll let you all judge for yourselves.
