Definitely not a bad album. Agree about the consistency. Just lacking a couple of big anthem type songs for me to rave about it. I hope this isnt a one off album. Would love to hear where these guys can take it..

Oh Damn! I had forgotten about that band! Saw them live a couple of times and they were great. Pretty sure they opened for AC/DC one tour. Their one and only album was pretty good too. Cant remember the album name, but i know it had someone in an electric chair on the front cover. Memories from the mid nineties!!

Really glad people are loving this album. I tend to agree with Hustler though. It is a decent enough record, but it just lacks something that takes it out of the 'heard it all before' vibe. Maybe for me it doesn't have that two or three monster tracks that make the album stand out from the pack. I don't think there is a bad track on the album though, but i get the feeling this will get lost among

I'm lucky enough to have had the album for a few weeks, and I think this is a great follow up to what they have already released. I think both Thin Lizzy and The Almighty fans will be very happy. It really is a great mix of those bands.

I know Frontiers are getting a pasting from certain parts of the melodic rock industry, however as a fan of this genre, bands and artists that i used to love(and still do) are releasing good to very good albums through the label. Clearly i dont have to deal with Frontiers besides handing over my $$ for a new album every once in awhile, but its hard to see acts like this one being possible in this

Will go very close to my album of the year. Just a cracking rock album. 'Re-arrange' and 'People' are great ballads while 'Howl' is the best modern rock song I've heard in years! Not a track i dont like on the album. Great effort considering ive barely enjoyed any of their previous material.

Picked up both the Twisted Sister and Extreme Bluray/DVD/CD packages for $11ea while over here in the states! Not sure why i had to share that, but I just felt that was incredibly cheap! Love the black friday bargains over here!! Cant wait to get home to watch/listen to them..

They sound like most of the other Euro hard rock/sleaze rock type of bands to me. New album is solid enough yet i struggle to remember any of the songs. There were several standout tracks on every Motley record (particularly the early ones). These guys need a few standout songs to get close to being tagged the new Motley IMO..

I have access to the Nuclear Blast Media Portal where albums are available to access weeks out from release, sometimes months as is the case with Black Star Riders.

Just listened to the new Black Star Riders album - Heavy Fire. On first listen I'm really impressed. The first couple of tracks 'Heavy Fire' and 'When The Night Comes In' kick the album off perfectly with a great blend of their previous album with a hint of classic Almighty. 'Who Rides The Tiger' is also an early favourite which is another cool upbeat rock track and 'Dancing With The Wrong Girl'

Can't confuse Ozzy.. Kiss have no excuses though except maybe Gene is too lazy to re-learn some old songs. Kiss have such a huge range of songs to choose from, and yet they literally play the same setlist over and over again. AC/DC were similar too. Metallica and Dream Theater are great examples of great bands with big followings changing their setlist on a regular basis, even from night t

No one will flame you for liking something dude. One of my mates absolutely adores this record. The beauty about DT is that they make such diverse and wonderful music that it attracts music fans from all genres. I think if a no name band released this album, the melodic rock world would be more praising the album rather than criticizing it. It's a little too mellow and show tuney for me and the s

Astonishing band, astonishingly ordinary album. I'm a big DT fan. But I'm finding it hard to defend this album. 3 really good songs amongst a whole heap of wtf? Petrucci needs to take full control and politely ask Rudess to take a backseat on the songwriting for the next album IMO. I will never listen to the album from start to finish again. Brave attempt by the band, but IMO it is their worst ov

Pretty Maids is quality as usual. Rarely let me down. Slightly different vibe to the last two, in that it sounds more melodic with a touch less of the heavy, but it is still quality from start to finish. The Roth/Brock release is ok. Really wasn't expecting much to begin with, so maybe my expectations were a little lower than most. There are a few filler tracks, but overall it is decent enoug

Welcome the change in sound and direction. I think they were getting stale, so something different was needed. Having said that, half the album works for me, half doesnt. Some definite filler on the album, but I hope they stick to the sound.

Interviewed Eric a couple of weeks ago. Great guy and super talented. Still hugely under rated IMO. Testament back catalogue stands up better than Anthrax and Slayer IMO. The new album kicks ass. First half of the album is as close to perfect old school thrash you can get.

Nic Maeder - and yes he is Aussie, although he has Swiss heritage I believe. He took over vocals after the unfortunate passing of Steve Lee. Nic was in a band I think with his brother over here in Australia called Maeder and they had some cool hard rock stuff including a song that was played regularly on radio over here around a decade ago called 'Another Thing Coming'. Very much in the same moul

Having said that about Jon Bon Jovi, I am really enjoying his new album. Best thing he has done since the glory days IMO. Not a hugely different sound than previous albums, but just better songs and a lot more upbeat than previous albums. 'Living With The Ghost', New Year's Day & 'Born Again Tomorrow' are my early favourites.

Firebirth was ok, considering what the band had to go through, but their last album was a great record. So I'm definitely looking forward to this one! One of the most consistently great hard rock bands ever IMO...

His shows got ravaged here in Australia a month ago. Seemed to be on another planet and the god awful setlist does not look like it has changed unfortunately. Luckily I skipped the show here in Melbourne, but I heard nothing but bad reviews. A mate of mine walked out halfway through I Got You Babe. Cannot believe he would play this song over literally anything from his solo albums. I really

Really struggled with this album. Symphony of Sin was such a good album, but this one falls well short of that IMO. Just lacking the punch the last album had and more catchier tunes. Besides 'The Great Pretender, nothing really stands out to me. Like most have said, it is an ok album, but with so many releases over the past month or so, it kind of gets lost. Will revisit at some stage though, hop

Yeah, i think it does come down to the price we pay. The more we pay, the more we expect to see. Unfortunately for us Aussies, we pay an inflated price for concert tickets because we are so far away. Im not sure how much a ticket to Queensryche was, but i paid $30 for a ticket to a Seattle show next month. Im guessing it cost at least 2-3 times that to see them here in Australia.

The setlist is just about perfect IMO. Sure, would be great to hear a 3 hour show, but I'm happy with that setlist. Im seeing them in Seattle in a months time, and I'd be happy if this was the show. Mind you, Im only paying $30US..

Anyone heard this yet? After a few listens I feel it is there best since the debut. Absolutely wipes the floor with their last release. 'Scream' is an amazing track, while 'Tearing Down The Sky' is as close as you're going to get to the sound of the debut album! Really enjoying this album. Nice surprise as I wasn't expecting much..

Unashamedly love the Crue. After my obsession with Kiss as a young kid Motley was the first band i obsessed over. Sure, some of their songs are awful, but you can say that about any artist who has had a lengthy career. And i agree that Brandon was an absolute shocker..

Jon needs to just stop making new music and just focus on touring on nostalgic glories. This is complete and utter rubbish. RIP Bon Jovi

While i dont think the album deserves high praise, i think half of it is ok. Speaking in Tongues is a really good tune. But why someone didnt suggest auto tune after hearing the album, Ill never know. His voice just shakes through most of it. Mind you, the girls sing about half the lyrics which I'd guess was not the original plan.

Evergrey can do no wrong. Seriously one of my favourite bands ever. Their last two albums are simply stunning.
