I will read this in full tomorrow, but I can start out by saying that this is pretty good news. Only for the fact that this is ONE OF THE BEST F*CKING ALBUMS EVER RECORDED!!! EVER!!!

 

I kinda don't mind it. :D Great news. I've wanted to hear something better than the demo quality stuff for ages!

That's awesome! :woot: In hindsight I feel kinda bad now for shelling out $20 for a silver pressed demo but my joy in knowing there will be an official release overshadows that by a mile!

Also, in the article they talk about a band called Killingbird doing a remake of Vain's "Beat The Bullet". If anyone is interested you can download the song here:

I just sent an email to the address on his official site asking if there was a release date yet for the project. In the meantime, I noticed on the message board there are several live shows and demos that are available for download:

I tried to download that stuff but I don't think it's available now.

 

Here's a link to Vain's my space page. They have a couple of friends that are former bandmembers including original drummer Tom Rickard, if you click on him you can listen to some of his songs, it seems he's went into some type of country direction.

This release must have went by the boards huh?

 

I am looking for a high quality version of the mp3's of this cd or the CD itself I guess. I see someone on Ebay has 9 burned copies for sale and I asked about them and she said they are high quality. I dunno. Anyone have any opinions or can lead me in the right direction?

 

I do have the 128 bit rate version of the songs on MP3 and the quality sucks but the songs are great...I wish this would just get released so we could buy it.

As far as I know, there aren't any really good quality copies of these songs going around. The version I have isn't terrible, but I would LOVE to see this released properly.

I've got a great version on CDR but the running order is wrong compared to the promo cassettes that sneaked out.

The sound is really really good, and I just set the CD player to play it in the correct order.

 

Sure beats the version I downloaded off Napster ab-so-lute-ly years ago....which took me 2 weekends...hahaha!

 

But an official release is way overdue.

I just grabbed a copy off an Ebay seller. He says it is from the promo cassette, track order is correct and he sent me a sample that sounds WAY better than what I have. $9, with more available.

 

But yeah, somebody just officially release it already!

I'll post back on the cd I get once I receive it. The sample he sent me was pretty decent.

I remember reading sometime post 2007 that the masters were lost and without some finanicial backing they would stay that way (Think it was on that vain fan website/board).

 

So odd that Davy Vain in 2006 would state its coming soon.

 

 

When Vain toured the UK a few years ago, my mate promoted a couple of the gigs. Davy Vain at that time didn't have a copy of All Those Strangers on any format. He didn't even own the rights to NR!!!

IMO the last few vain/davy cds were just ok at best, so I don't expect anything else of real quality to come out from the band.

Hope they put their energy into releasing this.

I bed to differ. I felt that "On the Line" is/was one great cd IMO.

The solo disc "In From Out of Nowhere" was good but not great but I loved "Fade" and "Move on It" as well as "No Respect" of course.

I have enjoyed everything from Vain but I completely understand where Rob is coming from.

 

In all honesty, 'No Respect', 'All those strangers' and 'Move on it' are all perfect albums. There is not a filler on all three and I cannot fault them at all.

 

'Fade' is a great disc and has some really excellent stuff on it... but also a couple of not-so-awesome songs. First signs of filler creeping into a Vain disc, although it's still easily my 4th favourite from the guys. 'In from out of nowhere' has it's moments and I do thoroughly enjoy the disc, but it definitely doesn't hold up to the Vain discs. The first song is killer, though. And 'On the line' is another very strong CD. All the songs are pretty damn good, but there are no real stand-out highlights whereas there was barely anything that wasn't a stand-out of the first three discs.

 

So, in summary, I don't think Vain have ever sucked and I love all albums I have from them (and Davy's solo) but I think it'd be hard to argue that the last three are nowhere near as good as the first three.

    • Photo credit: Tim Saccenti Metallica dropped an atomic bomb this morning, announcing the brand new album 72 Seasons and sharing the first single, “Lux Æterna”. “Lux Æterna” is old school thrash, picking right up where Hardwired… to Self-Destruct left off, only this time, guitarist Kirk Hammett was involved in the writing. 72 Seasons will be available April 14, 2023, via the band’s own Blackened Recordings. Produced by Greg Fidelman with founding members James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, and clocking in at over 77 minutes, the 12-track album is Metallica’s first full length collection of new material since 2016’s Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. Here’s the track listing for 72 Seasons: 01. 72 Seasons 02. Shadows Follow 03. Screaming Suicide 04. Sleepwalk My Life Away 05. You Must Burn! 06. Lux Æterna 07. Crown Of Barbed Wire 08. Chasing Light 09. If Darkness Had A Son 10. Too Far Gone? 11. Room Of Mirrors 12. Inamorata “72 seasons. The first 18 years of our lives that form our true or false selves,” said Hetfield of the album’s title. “The concept that we were told ‘who we are’ by our parents. A possible pigeonholing around what kind of personality we are. I think the most interesting part of this is the continued study of those core beliefs and how it affects our perception of the world today. Much of our adult experience is reenactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry.”   https://bloody-disgusting.com/music/3741721/metallica-returns-with-new-album-single-and-tour/
    • Yeah I wasn't expecting them to do much as it is their first World Cup since 86....at least they are competing hard.....now if they start making the World Cup on a regular basis then expectations will rise in the years to come....
    • New single. From Frontiers: Revolution Saints, the band centered around vocalist/drummer Deen Castronovo, have returned with a new line-up and a new single, 'Eagle Flight'. Castronovo is joined by new companions, bassist Jeff Pilson and guitarist Joel Hoekstra for Revolution Saints 2.0 and 'Eagle Flight' is their brand new musical statement announcing their arrival.    Revolution Saints was initially put together by Serafino Perugino, President and Head of A&R for Frontiers Records, to showcase the stunning voice of Deen Castronovo (Journey, Bad English, Hardline). Castronovo has always been a well respected drummer, but fans who took note of his background vocals over his career and who attended Journey shows and saw him take lead vocals on 'Mother, Father' during the band's set, came to realize he also had an amazing voice. Revolution Saints was, and always has been, a vehicle to show the world Deen's incredible singing talents.   For the first three Revolution Saints albums, "Revolution Saints", "Light In The Dark", and "Rise", Deen was joined by bassist/vocalist Jack Blades (Night Ranger) and guitarist Doug Aldrich (The Dead Daisies, ex-Whitesnake, DIO). Produced by Alessandro Del Vecchio, those three albums brought back the classic melodic rock style that thrilled and delighted legions of fans in the ‘80s and ‘90s and still does today! Inspiring, uplifting vocals, soaring melodies, and hooks for days is what you get in spades across those three albums.    While Revolution Saints MK I left an indelible mark on the melodic rock world, it was time for MK II to be born. Deen, having recently re-joined Journey, was feeling invigorated and inspired and ready to sing his ass off. Filling Blades and Aldrich's shoes would be no easy feat, but, mercifully, the exact right guys were found for the job. Joel Hoekstra is a current member of Whitesnake, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and Iconic, as well as having his own solo project, Joel Hoekstra's 13 and is an absolutely stunning guitar player, able to play multiple styles. Jeff Pilson, currently a member of Foreigner, Black Swan, and The End Machine, is also known for his time in Dokken and his more recent production work. Two stellar musicians to compliment Deen's singing and drumming is exactly what was needed for Revolution Saints 2.0 and that's exactly what we've got here.    Fans of Revolution Saints first three releases are going to find much to be delighted with here with the new, rejuvenated Rev Saints and their brand new single, 'Eagle Flight'!    A new studio album will be released in the first half of 2023.    Line-up:  Deen Castronovo: lead vocals, drums  Joel Hoekstra: guitars  Jeff Pilson: bass        
    • And unfortunately, for Canada, they're all better teams. 
    • The Jabberwocky songs have been knocking around for quite some time now, but I agree, being the kind of guy he was, I bet there is even more hidden away somewhere.
    • Canada made the same mistake Aussies did in their first match. Scoring early wakes up the better team and then you get hammered.
