Jaded Reign

Recommended Posts

yeah...I got that cd, pretty good 80's type hard rock/hair metal....I wouldn't say it is worth their asking price though....I had 2 copies a couple of years ago, sold one for pretty good cash...kept one for my collection...




Anyone ever heard of them? They're obviously fetching a chunk-o-Cash

Had to get my cd out because I could not remember what year it came out...1995, sounds like it was made in 1990-1991, good late 80's, early 90's type hard rock....




What year is this release? From the computer artwork I'd assume it is mid 90es or even more recent.

The seller is CDWOLVES and they have a shitload of other rarities for sale as well. I think they've been brought up before here somewhere

CD was indeed released in 1995; the band members subsequently broke up and several members eventually went on to become KILLING SEASON, a Death Metal band. The band has tried to distance itself from their initial eighties metal hair band roots. CD is signed by all of the band members.

You mean KILLING SEASON from Long Island, NY? If yes, I've heard their CD and they aint Death, but some sort of melodic modern metal with drum machine - not awfully bad, but definitely not my cup of tea.

Just a short note to let everyone know I just heard back from Peter C. formerly from Jaded Reign. Here's what he had to say:



Thanks for checking in with us! We recently lost our friend and bass player from Jaded Reign in a tragic car accident. The remaining four members agreed to release ALL of the Jaded Reign catelog as a tribute to Brian later this summer. Please keep watching out for it, we appreciate your support.


Thanks so much,


Peter C."


I was saddened to hear abotu Brian, but the news of the pending re-releases warmed my heart a little.

Thanks for the news. From the description of the band/music, I'm thinking this is something I'd like to hear. :banger:

These guys aren't bad--there are FAR worse indies floating around out there collecting mad cash they don't deserve--but I think the production hurts them a little. Still, they serve up some solid late 80s/early 90s-style melodic hard rock/hair-metal. To my ears, they always sounded a little like a cross between early Jaded Heart and Britny Fox, with only the aforementioned so-so production holding them back from being something special.


However, unless this CD's value has shot up significantly in the last year or so, it's not worth the asking price. I've had 2 copies in the past 2 years...one sold for $185, the other sold for $150. So yeah, it's good but not THAT good, and yeah, it's pricey but not THAT pricey. <_<


As always, just my two cents' worth.


Keep the faith.

I saw on the main site that the Jaded Reign doesn't have a photo (sorry, I couldn't find one to post), and after do some searchin' I found that the folks at Metal Mayhem have one (for reference purposes):



or, there is a profile for both Jaded Reign/Killing Season on myspace, with a Youtuber vid, too:



also, the Killing Season project is available on CDBaby:



with more samples to listen to here:



enjoy...... :beerbang:

    • Yeah, a few times. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to all the hype. 
    • Ok the title was clickbait, first dislike and then later like would be more accurate but hey, you clicked on the topic, so it worked! 😬
    • As a few others mentioned, musically it isn't too far off from their early material, but the song itself doesn't do much for me unfortunately.   In watching the video it looks like they've got a new drummer.
    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time. 
    • Now also the official video is out, recorded live in front of  large crowd in California.  This song seems to be a real grower. Was actually a bit disappointed after first 2 listens. But still played it few more times. And then it happened - when I was doing other things, without music, parts of song started playing in my head ;-).   
    • not quite is accordance with the thread, but I saw Vain support Skid Row back in the day and really didn't like them, then years later actually discovered that I liked the debut - it was after Enough Rope was released and I worked backwards. Also I returned the John Kilzer Memory in the Making cd, but came to love the album but still don't own the cd
    • I think I saw them at Cathouse in St.Kilda .  It got re issue 3 years ago with a different cover
    • Have you had a chance to give "Bangalore Choir - On Target" a sping yet?
    • They actually sound great together, despite your reservations towards Floor.
