In anticipation of the upcoming "Tora Tora" release, I thought i'd post this gem from the past.

"Hard luck's knockin' on my back door".

Going out of my normal comfort zone at the moment.
Was watching Foxtel and flicking through the music channels (there is no hard rock channel)
Stopped to talk with someone while it rested on the country channel (well, one of them, as there is more than one Country channel and no hard rock of course)
Ended up listening to the songs on there and was quite drawn to them. Some concert in Queensland with Old Dominion playing their set.

Never heard of them before, but was digging their music so I downloaded the show through Foxtel to watch again later.
Kind of country pop I guess.
Even leans a bit towards Hillsong stuff at times I guess.

Anyway, I liked it enough to get the album, which is pretty good.
Probably the first time I have really ever liked a country band enough to get the album.
Last song I remember that I really dug was Devil Goes Down To Georgia lol

In this clip the band are wearing Kiss, Metallica and Priest t-shirts so maybe I'm not too far away from my music after all...

As mentioned before, modern day Country Music isn't that far removed from AOR. That song is probably not the best example. Probably more on the Pop side, but still okay. I grew up with old school Country and Western music and have always had a soft spot for it. I have enough trouble keeping up with AOR/MHR/METAL. I wouldn't want to open up another can of worms by pursuing Country as well. It's good stuff though.

I've always loved a good concept album and this is a ripper. With David Readman, Lana Lane and Davy Vain on vocals you can't go wrong. Apparently this album is based on a novel called "Chronicle of the Immortals".I'm not familiar with it, but the album kicks ass.

The Beatles thread got me thinking about the Rolling Stones. This is not just one of my favorite Stones tracks, but one of my alltime favorite tracks. Stone Sour do a great job, but the star of the show is Lzzy Hale.

I meant to put the previous post in the "Cover Songs" thread, so I'll post another for song of the day. Great track, great album, shit band name. Anybody know what it refers to? Very much influenced by Skid Row.

Back in the day this was an album that every metalhead had, and rightly so.

Three minutes of hard, dirty, thumping blues from one of the legends.

Probably the first time ONJ has appeared on this site, but I  do love this song. This track is like a time machine to the 80's for me. It takes me back everytime I hear it.

Generic and predictable, but still a great track from a great album.

There's not much that Michael Bormann is involved with that disappoints.

Two today. One from the new Avantasia album featuring Geoff Tate and one from the vault by Sargant Fury (disregard the title, it's actually "change").

I mentioned this in another thread as my favourite Lynch Mob Track, so I thought i'd post it.

    • Appears to be running fine now. I had to submit another support ticket for them to re-apply the fix that they had done before I upgraded... sheesh.
    • From Frontiers: BREAKING NEWS: Crazy Lixx Announce New Album, "Forever Wild", To Be Released May 17, 2019 Swedish hard rockers Crazy Lixx are back with another gem of an album that harkens back to the best of ‘80s hard rock, while also keeping a foot firmly planted in the 21st century. “Forever Wild” further cements the band's status as one of the leaders of the Scandinavian led hard rock revival, cleverly melding a sleaze/hair metal approach (reminiscent of Motley Crue, Warrant, and Winger) with voracious hooks and melodies. With huge choruses, instantly memorable riffs, wailing, emotive guitar solos, and massive production by Danny Rexon and Chris Laney, "Forever Wild" is sure to resonate with old fans and new listeners alike. Singer Danny Rexon says, "Ruff Justice was the first album where I took on the full role of producer, including recording, engineering, editing and some of the mixing. Naturally, there were things that I learnt along the way and, in retrospect, things that could have been done better. On the new album, I was once again the producer, but this time I brought in a whole lot more experience with me and had a clearer picture of what needed to be done to get a GREAT sounding album. So, you could definitely say that the new album is a natural progression from 'Ruff Justice'. It’s actually the first time in the history of the band where the same band members have recorded under roughly the same conditions, in the same studios, with more or less the same equipment and with the same producer. For the first time, you can hear continuity from one album to the next, so I’d say if you’re a fan of 'Ruff Justice', I bet you’ll enjoy this new album the same, if not even more!" The band explores a wider range of styles than ever before on “Forever Wild”. From the hard rocking and anthemic opening track “Wicked” to the AOR inspired upcoming single “Silent Thunder,” to songs like "Eagle", that sounds like it came off a Bon Jovi album circa 1986, Crazy Lixx manage to blend a love and reverence for ‘80s hard rock with their own unique stamp on each track. Rexon continues, "I think the way the album turned out has a lot to do with the current line-up that we established in 2016. I’ve always been a fan of melodic hard rock and hair metal, but with previous members, we’ve been pulling a bit more in different directions at times, so the result hasn’t always gone towards the goal I’d like them too, certainly not as much as it has on this album. I can honestly say that the way Crazy Lixx sounds today is a lot closer to how I envisioned the band to sound in the early 2010’s (around the time of 'New Religion') than how we actually sounded 5-6 years ago."  With “Forever Wild", Crazy Lixx have set the bar very high against their own revered and celebrated catalog. Their best album yet? We’d say so! Don’t miss Crazy Lixx while they’re on the road in support of the album either, as their live shows are a sight to behold! Danny concludes, “On release day (May 17th), we have an album release show in our hometown of Malmö, along with fellow Frontiers band Creye. I’d recommend this event for all the fans that want to see some new songs live for the first time and get a chance to hang out with the band, get the new album signed, and all that fun stuff. After that, we’re lining up a bunch of summer festivals to kick off touring. I think there is a definite summer vibe to this album and the new songs will really fit well on an outdoor summer festival. Really looking forward to this summer’s shows.”  Tracklist: 1. Wicked 2. Break Out 3. Silent Thunder 4. (She's Wearing) Yesterday's Face 5. Eagle 6. Terminal Velocity 7. It's You 8. Love Don't Live Here Anymore 9. Weekend Lover 10. Never Die (Forever Wild) Line-up: Danny Rexon – vocals  Joél Cirera - drums  Jens Anderson – bass guitar  Chrisse Olsson - guitar  Jens Lundgren - guitar    
    • This is actually an EP (first one of three), not a full-length album. Released March 15th. Samples: amazon.com Tracks: 1. Carousel 2. Taking Me Home 3. Let the Sunshine In 4. Dancing in the Moonlight 5. Love of Mine
    • It's definitely destined to be a top 3-5 finisher, at least.
    • Sounding great,this could well be my chart topper album for 2019 but so much competition still to be unleashed this year...but a great track as usual from these guys.
    • It's all part of Frontiers' new ham-fisted approach to PR
    • Excellent, as usual. Very consistent band.
