Song of the Day

Recommended Posts

Another great "mash up". A duet from a Rock God who died young and one who appears to be immortal.

I was listening to the "Once and future King" albums today. I've always loved the great lyrics from Ten/Gary Hughes. Borderline poetry at times. This track in particular stands out for me. The chorus is fairly basic, only four lines which are the same except for one word. With the words Grace, Face, Sake and Wake exchanged in each line, he's managed to some up mankind's relationship with God/Religion.

Fuck it. Here's another one. Great song that captures the essence of Mordred. The opening lines are brilliant.

"A waif sits alone in the shadows. Disgraced in the darkest despair. 'Till fate turned his destiny towards the light".

I'm very late to the party with this XYZ demos disc. I didn't even know it existed. What an absolute cracker of a track this is.The version on Rainy Days is great, IMO this original version is far superior and more "XYZish".

This one has been doing the rounds on an advertisement for the Hyundai Tucson down here in Oz for a while. Not quite sure why they went with this track, but good on 'em. Always brings a smile to my face when jt comes on the tele.

Yeah, always struck me as weird.

I'd be seen as a 'metalhead' by most people, yet this song is pretty fringe for me.

Not sure who their target audience is with that song.

Could just be a case of a metalhead CEO I guess

Another great mash up. A good example of how great Black Label Society can be without Zakk Wylde on vocals.

Been listening to all things DIO the last couple of days. You can release a million tribute albums with a million covers, but this is a true tribute.

Here's two songs. Both are targeted at a teenage audience. Both are about spending the night with a girl named Susie. Different eras. This is exactly what Don McLean's "American Pie" is all about. A loss of innocence.

Listening to DIO over the last couple of days eventually led me to this classic. THE collaboration of all collaborations. The guitar solo(s) is/are perfection. Those were the days.

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and a big thank you to everybody on the forum. I thought I would post a Christmas song in honour of the #metoo movement that has been so prominent this year.

One of the morning shows down here had a Christmas episode this morning and Pseudo Echo randomly performed. Strange considering the audience mainly consists of old age pensioners, but I  guess we're all borderline that ourselves. ;)  Great cover. They also sang "There's a beat for you" but, I can't find a clip. Check out the epic double "keytar" work.

There's nowhere else we'd rather go to on Christmas Day than Funky Town with Pseudo Echo! 🎸🎵 #Studio10 https://t.co/N0GHYBsIgA https://twitter.com/Studio10au/status/1077353233528451072?s=17

They toured recently, but the setlist had nothing at all off Race, so what's the point?
I saw them a million times as a kid at blue light disco etc lol

Then one night a mate and I randomly went and saw them at some club in Northcote and they had released Race (I wasn't following them, so I didn't know about it) and they blew me away.
Awesome hard rock, killer songs, what a great night.
Now Brian seems to distance himself from that.
Side note, the music teacher at my kids primary school sung on Brian's Brill album.
Was very strange as the teacher was over at my place, we were talking about music, he mentioned Brill and I pulled the CD, and there was his name lol

Always loved this Aussie classic. I was watching the video today and never realized before that the lead singer is Lord Baylish. I thought he was killed long ago. Arya fucked up.

Song(s) of the day.

I don't know if anybody else here is a George Thorogood fan. Probably not. I've always loved the guy. I remember back in the day having to order his earlier stuff from my local cd store and always receiving the long cardboard US cd boxes, which was quite a novelty. Here's three of my favourites from the great "Maverick" album. Me and my good buddy Weiser have spent many a night listening to these.

So many of the great singers from our genre (s) go unrecognized by the mainstream. David A Saylor is certainly one of them (R.I.P.). I love this "Zhenx" Album and this track is a killer.

AOR/Melodic Rock Perfection? I could've thrown a dart at this album to select a song of the day. This one is particularly good.

I've never been a big fan of Andi Deris's voice at all actually, but  I do absolutely love this song.

One of the classic greats. The big question is, was this the last thing Tony heard before he died. If, indeed he did die.

I've always been a huge W.A.S.P. fan and I love the three "Randy Piper's Animal" albums. It's not Blackie on vocals, but it sounds bloody close.

    • I know, I know. We all know the answer but still I have to ask: So what happened to the "Cessation of Touring Contract" by the Crue?
    • Whoah... much better than I expected before clicking on them. Reminds me vocally of a lighter version of Lizzy Borden crossed with Rob Moratti. I'm going to have to track this one down.
    • from various internet sources: TYGERS OF PAN TANG will release their new album, “Ritual”, next Friday, while this Japanese edition including a bonus track appeared today. This is the band’s second recording by the current Tygers lineup, recorded with the help of renowned Søren Andersen, most recently known for his role as Glenn Hughes’s guitarist. Mastering done by Harry Hess (Harem Scarem). Tygers Of Pan Tang is a legendary band with some legendary albums, but I’m dare to say “Ritual” is one of their best. There’s a classic melodic hard rock feel all over the record, with some irresistible riffing, powerful grooves and catchy choruses. The mastermind here is original member, guitarist Robb Weir. The band’s current phase proves as formidable as its heyday, with longtime drummer Craig Ellis, vocalist Jacopo Meille, bassist Gavin Gray and guitarist Micky Crystal. “Ritual” wastes no time in stampeding the listener with the bursting “Worlds Apart,” one of the heaviest tunes on the album. Fair warning though – the straight forward chorus can stick in your mind for weeks, like a modern day version of “Gangland.” This isn’t the only instance on “Ritual,” this is an album chock full of hook laden rockers. “Destiny” slides in and the ride continues with a soulful voice. The pounding percussion is back and the riff are melodic, precise. The lyrics are thoughtful, and well written, and do tell a story, unlike many of these so-called hits of today in those other genres that just repeat over and over again. Slipping into the triple-twist of the steam train you’re on, comes, “Rescue Me“. There’s a simple riff and hook that becomes infectious, and still has you in its clutches. The vocals, clear and understandable, will have you singing along before you realize you’re doing it. The track that will “Raise Some Hell” is definitely the hidden gem on the record. This has got to be a live track used to get the crowd worked into a frenzy. Fast-paced, and rockin’ as hell. Screaming vocals, a rocket train paced guitar, and drums to match. If this song doesn’t get you off your backside and have your fist-pounding, then shut off the record and go back to your BackStreet Boys, because you’re listening to the wrong music! As this roller coaster continues, you reach the point where you just don’t wanna get off yet, and hope the rest is just as exciting. Luckily, you would be right. “Spoils Of War” might be the most melodic song of the bunch, but this midtempo still rocks hard and the solo kills. Masterfully played track. After a few more thrills, and twists, you know the ride is gaining its way to the final gate, but don’t take the safety bar off just yet. “The Art Of Noise” has yet another trick that will have you raising your fists into the air, and trying to catch your breath once again. Hang on, because you still have to “Sail On” until the end. Maybe not the most exciting part of this ride, but still an effective end. Clear concise vocals and equally as good playing from the rest of the Tygers are ever-present here. So sit back, and enjoy this last bit of this “Ritual” and to hell with keeping your arms and legs inside the ride at all times. “Ritual” may be the bast sounding Tygers album since 1981’s Spellbound, but don’t take me wrong, it’s still a fresh new album that stands on its own. You couldn’t ask for a more beautifully produced album. Presenting a top notch mix and crystal clear recording, the use of modern technology pays homage to the band’s legacy without succumbing to a thin lifeless sound. And songwriting is just as strong, as each musician performance. One of the best classic rock / traditional hard / melodic albums of the year. Raise those fists, and enjoy. Highly Recommended Tracklist: 01 – Worlds Apart 02 – Destiny 03 – Rescue Me 04 – Raise Some Hell 05 – Spoils of War 06 – White Lines 07 – Words Cut Like Knives 08 – Damn You! 09 – Love Will Find a Way 10 – Art of Noise 11 – Sail On JAPAN BONUS TRACK: 12 – Don’t Touch Me There (2019 Version) Robb Weir – Guitars Craig Ellis – Drums Jack Meille – Vocals Gavin Gray – Bass Micky Crystal – Guitars   BUY IT www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/MICP-11527    
    • Well, I can't wait for it.
    • I won't as long as my mom is taking me down there! I know they're great still- this will be my first concert though 😋
    • Don't miss it. They're still amazing live. 
    • Is he really more and more in demand? Or is it simply signing with Frontiers means he is producing?
    • https://meramecmusictheatre.tix.com/Event.aspx?EventCode=1154903 Me & my mom might go together! 
    • Heard of Kane only from the band LSD and I have no clue who the other person is.
    • Oh boy! I'll try to contain my excitement!
