TOUR DE FORCE

Recommended Posts

For some time I've been a fan of TOUR DE FORCE & yesterday I found an offer that's hard to refuse...

Found an album by them on the net that I didn't know of. It has a green cover with the band name in the middle of it...No track listing, Year of release or anything....

My question is: Is this an "unknown" release by them or just another version of either "World on fire" or "Unreleased"??? They're the only two albums I know of by Tour de Force....

 

Hope somebody knows of this "green" album and is willing to help me out!

 

Thanks in advance!

 

A devoted Tour de Force fan

Ok, just got a little wiser now...Seems they released a rare 7 track debut in 1988...Could that be the one I mentioned in my last post? Found this info on www.gemm.com.....Hmmm Can anybody help me out? :help:

I don't know, but I know someone who might. I'll ask him and see if he knows anything.

Hello,

 

I was told about this post, and being a BIG TDF fan myself, i thought id give you some insight on the band.

 

The band released a DEMO in 87/88. Those songs were eventually released in japan on the WORLD ON FIRE cd. The "green" album your speaking of was the bands debut album overseas. it is a official release. Some of the songs on UNRELEASED were from those sessions. Funny part is...even though the "green" album was released before Unreleased and World On fire. The songs on WORLD ON FIRE were recorded long before the green album. For the record..its a awesome release! If you can find it, i highly recomend it.

 

THE BAND BROKE UP IN 92 and went differant ways. Chris and Bill "Sven" wen onto form a band called NO HAPPY FACES which featured Chris's brother Eric on vocals who went onto star in U571 and on ER as Dr Dave. Billy joined a band called Back East and was produced by Ace Frehley. Alex Salz now produces and mixed and mastered quite a few of our releases including Adriangale. Vocalsit Chali joined a band called LionHeart, which was eventually released on Metal Mayhem under the name WITHOUT LOVE. The band got back togethr in 2001 to record a bonus track for the Japanese release of UNRELEASED.

 

Hope i answered your questions for you.

 

Best

John

After reading the discussion in this thread, I've just added the S/T to the site, along with samples from all the tracks. In my opinion solid, but nowhere near the gem that "World on Fire" is. WoF is a masterpiece.

Thanks again guys for the quick help on TOUR DE FORCE...Just received the debut(green album) in the mail today....Proud to own it! Sure is good but much more mainstream than their other two releases & where's that distinctive voice??? Well, no matter what I'm glad I found it but I still prefer World On Fire... :headbanger:

Like I posted earlier on I ironically found it in my home country so that would explain the fast delivery... Only 98 Dkr. which is like 15 dollars or less...That shop (www.rillen.dk) doesn't know what rarities they have in stock...Hahaha

Even though it's their weakest album, how good is 'Watercolours' off the debut?! Love that tune...

    • No he can push all he wants, he can bitch and fight and argue, and say the most insane liberal shit he can think of, but first this morning I had to fucking hear it from Karisa, then I get on here to escape her and Glens being a disrespectful motherfucker, we can talk shit, and insult each other, and clown and make fun, and be mean as we want, but when you start talking to me like im a fucking punk then my attitude will follow suit, Ive gone above and beyond to treat HH community with respect and I am about as laid back as your going to find me on here, but if we are gonna be mean, then just get it out in the open, cause I got zero problem with mean, but dont think for a second im not gonna be mean back, theres a huge line between trolling and talking to someone like their a bitch, trust me I know, I do both daily, this is the last im going to say about this, this is my position, so laugh it up, make your jokes, talk your shit, then drop it, fuckin liberals, lol
    • What is the new Covid variant and why is it a concern? Scientists have detected a new Covid-19 variant called B.1.1.529 and are working to understand its potential implications. About 100 confirmed cases have been identified in South Africa, Hong Kong, Israel and Botswana.   B.1.1.529 has a very unusual constellation of mutations, which are worrying because they could help it evade the body’s immune response and make it more transmissible, scientists have said. Any new variant that is able to evade vaccines or spread faster than the now-dominant Delta variant may pose a significant threat as the world emerges from the pandemic. Dr Susan Hopkins, the chief medical adviser to the UK Health Security Agency, said the R value, or effective reproduction number, of the B.1.1.529 variant in the South African province of Gauteng, where it was first found, was now 2 – a level of transmission not recorded since the beginning of the pandemic, before restrictions began to be imposed. For an R of anything above 1, an epidemic will grow exponentially.
    • Now kids... fight nice. This is the Flamefest section, so there's a bit more latitude here than in other areas. I think Glen is deliberately pushing your buttons, i.e., trolling you... especially since he "couldn't care less about U.S. politics"... *ahem*. He know he can push you into a rant. Don't fall for it. Ignore him like most of the rest of the people here do.
    • While I'm in the atheist camp I do not have a problem with most of the people who have faith in God....to each their own...as for Xmas , it is a holiday and should be about family and if religion is a necessary part of it for you, then so be it.....
