What's a spinnin' in your CD player?


Recommended Posts

Just thought it'd be fun for all us hardrock lovers to share what we're listening to right now...

 

At this very moment I'm listening to:

 

OVER'N'OVER from TOUR DE FORCE...Great peculiar sounding track! Reminds me of early Skagarack stuff...Chromatic chord progressions there...

 

Maybe a bit cheesy topic...

 

Lemme know!

:drink:

A week of classics  not a bad disc there  

On cd?

I may get kicked out of the club for this, but actually right now I've got two 10-CD boxed sets in my office, one of Benny Goodman, and one of Glen Miller. What can I say, I like 1930s-40s big band music.

 

More back on topic, the new Sonata Arctica - Winterheart's Guild is a melodic masterpiece.

Fair 'nuff...Diversity is necessary sometimes! Sonata Arctica...Hmmm A bit to symphonic for my taste if I remember correctly....There's a lot of that stuff here in Northern Europe.

I actually saw Sonata Arctica on one of their first tours supporting STRATOVARIUS & RHAPSODY...I was surprised by their talent although their English was very, very far from close to perfect...Haha

Very young guys at that time but they delivered the goods...

 

Heard their version of Still Loving You (Scorps) and was pretty amazed...They've improved a lot!

Do yourself a favor and get the japanese version...The bonus track "Tonight" is the best track on that album. Other highlights are: "Shot down", "Hold on", "Back to You" & "Forgotten Heroes"...Personally I find "World on Fire" a bit better than "Unreleased". The songs are a bit more accessible if you understand what I mean...But like you, I had to listen to Tour de Force several times before the songs caught onto me...When I found myself singing the track "Hold On" out loud I knew they'd entered my hall of fame...Only bad thing 'bout them is the demo sound. Their style is fit for a great production.

 

Do you know about their debut entitled "Tour de Force"??? Just found it on www.rillen.dk.

It had a green cover with the band name on it...Unfortunately there was no track listing so I don't know if it's just another version of one of the other albums...

 

I found the other cds on: www.hangloose-records.com

 

Great site! Lotsa rarities there at reasonable prices... :drink:

Hey

 

This week in the car I'm playing all sorts of CDs: the new Michelle Branch, Shadowkeep's latest one, Angel 'Live Without A Net', FM 'Only The Strong', a CD by a band called Neve and a borrowed CD of the new Metallica, which I don't like very much. I also got in the mail a new CD by Grand Illusion which I haven't heard yet.

Listening to "Too late for Paradise" with EZ LIVIN' right now...Well, what can I say? The previous track, "Body Talk", was much better!

 

Why did Hans Ziller go and make a new band that sounds almost exactly like Bonfire??? I thought solo projects were made in order to try some new stuff on for size...Well, not here! The singer reminds me all too much of Claus Lessmann...

Great album though! Powerful & melodic metal from Germany!

 

Recommended if you can find the disc...Just don't expect something completely different from what Ziller has done before... :rolleyes:

Tasha, how new is the Shadow Keep cd you are talking about?

 

Is it with the new singer?

 

I have their first two, and they are a good substitute to Queensryche (until they start playing heavy again) Black Tower is great! You must love the first two by Kamelot!???

 

Danish, Tour de France, is´nt that a bike race???: :lol:

No, honsteley, I have heard of them and would like more info on what kind of music they play? In the vain of Frontline or heavier???

 

Now playing: Anthrax newest, surprisely real good, grows on ya!

 

Later dudes & dudettes! :banger:

I haven't heard any of it yet, just a little bit on the radio. It sounds like you think it's worth getting. I'll have to pick it up.

Swedish Steel:

 

First of all TOUR DE FORCE are great! But a description of their sound is much harder...Hmmm where do I start?

The first thing I fell for were the dominant keyboards (often symphonic sounding) & the pro vocals. They reminded me a little of Skagarack but with a harder sound...The two albums I have with TOUR DE FORCE are both collections of hard rockin' tracks rich on melody, moody powerballad stuff & their very special "musical" sound. Some of their tracks really sound like they could've been included in a musical of some sort...But it's done in a cool way! So as you've perhaps figured their compositions are pretty big & compact. The way I like it! There's no cheesy 3 chord songs here. These guys know their stuff! As I said their pros....Some would probably say they almost sound like lite-progressive stuff at times but I wouldn't go that far.

Just good, big, professional & original hardrock/aor!!

Only downfall is the production since it's all demo material. But then again, the sound is very good for a demo!

    • Press release: UK rock band, CATS IN SPACE, have announced the release of their fourth album ‘Atlantis‘ on November 27th via Harmony Factory / Cargo Records UK. The first single ‘I Fell Out of Love with Rock n’ Roll‘ will be released on October 30th. CATS IN SPACE return with their fourth studio album this Winter with the sensational ‘ATLANTIS’. Nine months in the making, it is set to cause tidal waves around the globe with a sound still ‘very Cats’ but this time the ‘Rock claws’ are out. In a year which has seen much upheaval in the world, the band have also undergone some changes whilst buried deep beneath the ocean recording their new masterpiece. Joining the Cats onboard is none other than the star of Jeff Wayne’s ‘War of the Worlds’, the amazing DAMIEN EDWARDS, whose incredible vocal range has brought another dimension to the unique sounds of the band. After three hugely acclaimed and successful albums, this new line-up will certainly get the fans buzzing in anticipation of the new ‘Aquatic monster’. “Atlantis has been a testing journey for the band in many ways, taking into account some personal events and indeed the state of the business due to Covid-19. But, let us reassure you all, we believe that the new record is going to blow you away. It rocks more and has more symphony, courtesy of our good friend Mike Moran and his orchestra! We are super excited for everyone to hear what we believe is our finest album yet” – Greg Hart. Tracklist: 1. Dive! 2. Spaceship Superstar 3. Revolution 4. Sunday Best 5. Listen To The Radio 6. I Fell Out Of Love With Rock ‘n Roll 7. Marionettes 8. Queen Of The Neverland 9. Magic Lovin’ Feelin’ 10. Can’t Wait For Tomorrow 11. Seasons Change 12. Atlantis  
    • Mayhem With Mercy - Venom
    • Cold Truth - Grindstone  Molly Hatchet - Silent Reign Of Heroes  The Sonic Walthers - Medication
    • New song 'Castaway'. Nice!    
    • So I just heard this song, you all probably know of it, or not, I fucking really really like this song, I think it fucking rocks, but rocks in like a crossover Punk-Goth-Raw Hard Rock throwback to the Black Flag - Loose Nut type days, this song is completely raw, unpolished, and just dirty,    
    • I know a few years ago I posted the very first BA song off his very first album, pretty much sarcastically, as it made me want to throw on some daisy dukes, roller skates and bop up and down my street chewing bubble gum and dancing, well I was wrong, it wasn't his first song, this one is, and guess what? it's a million times better then his old first song, I even got the disco remix, this is pure hilarity, I couldn't stop laughing after hearing this, and like his other first song, this has a mind tormentingly catchy beat to it, caution it will lure you in and get you, also, some company out of Canada BA deals with hunts uploads of this song down with intensity, anyone that gets uploaded to YouTube generally is caught by it's bots on the UL, if not that company snags it within a couple days, so I had to upload an artist who has a similar name and his song that also has a similar name, lets see how long we can keep this up there, and why the fuck does that company care if it's out there? that's almost Nancy Drew script material, very fucking odd, anyway, when your done laughing,, lets hear your thoughts.  
    • err just to make this absolutely clear - this is not coming from me.  And that is not a panic stricken website it is the official UK government website with comments directly from our health secretary ffs you do what u like. at 30 odd years old yes your risk is prob negligible. At nearly 51 I would be far greater risk category even being fit for my age. And as for my parents they would prob die sadly. both have had their yearly flu jab so that risk in minor in comparison - for covid there is no treatment or vaccine. Comparing the two is quite frankly bollocks. so I continue to be careful and prudent  but I am not living my life in fear thank you very much and I am not doom mongering
