Too many songs. Too many ballads. Not enough catchy songs. Not enough hooks. Their weakest album by a long way ever IMO. After the very solid Bang!, this is a huge disappointment.

Track 2 'Electrified' is great. Then it's not until track 9 'Tequila Symphony No. 5'(which is just an ok track) where the pace picks up again. Then it's back to back ballads again, and not even good ones. Thank god the album finishes with two rockers, 'My Oh My' in particular is solid. The bonus tracks are rockers as well thank goodness, and both are good songs, however is it just me or is 'Walk

I love this band but I'm really struggling with this album. Too many softer tracks and not enough memorable choruses or hooks for me. I find myself pressing the skip button a lot on this album, which I'm not sure I've ever done with a Gotthard record. On a par with Firebirth maybe, but IMO it doesnt touch Bang! Unfortunately. Hoping it clicks for me at some stage..

Really like the first two songs we've heard, however i agree with those that say it would have benefited more with a better production. It just doesnt quite sound right.

Cant wait to hear them try, but I just cant imagine them topping Armageddonize which to me was the perfect hard rock album. If they get anywhere near that Ill be super impressed..

I loved Bang, and Ive always laughed at people judging an album based on short samples, but I tend to agree. I'm not feeling it. The three full songs ive heard are fairly dull, and these 90 sec samples dont get me excited at all. Ill still buy the album and hope for the best..

Pump is one of my favourite albums of all time and yes, it was the bands last great album. Very hit and miss after that, more miss than hit. Get a Grip was a huge disappointment for me. Rocks still remains their greatest album though, and I only saw them live for the first time a couple of years ago here in Melbourne and they still put on a super rock show. Would be happy for them to continue

2016 can GAGF.. Yet another sad loss. I'm guessing she was going to play some role in the next Star Wars movie too. Shame we won't see Luke and Leia reunited.

I just dont get the love for this band. I feel my taste in music is quite diverse, and I even like some of the Industrial Metal type stuff, but NIN are just plain awful IMO.

I'm only assuming, but I am guessing a Michael Bolton singing his favourite cinema classics, will sell more than most of the releases on Frontiers. As awful as it sounds, his fanbase I'm sure is a lot bigger than most of the artists on the label. So yeah, hopefully a release that is to bring in some cash to keep the label signing good artists and maybe to increase spending on the production of fu

If it gets close to the quality of their last two albums, it will be worth the wait.

Giving the new album a listen today. Ill let you know how it is. I like these guys. Not re-inventing the wheel but a good mix of hard rock and metal.

Ive been a big fan of Steel Panther. Their live shows have always been really enjoyable. Ive really enjoyed their music as well. And yes, I get they are a comedy act, but they are also a music act who's target market is 'our kind'. I think one of the problems with them now, is that most bands show progression in their style, whether it be music or lyrical content. These guys have literally releas

Loved Symphony of Sin, but this new album did not grab me at all unfortunately..

Never really liked his music besides the odd song here and there, was a little too pop for me. But always appreciated how good his voice was. Really nice guy and alwsys put on a super live show. I too would have liked him to do more rock oriented songs throughout his career.

Haha. Yeah, the lyrics are what sets them apart from other bands in this genre. They are ultimately a rock/comedy act. The lyrics are the main reason why they have become successful. I get why people don't like them. They pretty much offend everybody, especially women. Yet you go to their live shows, and the crowd would be close to 50% women. The first time I saw these guys was at the Roxy ba

I agree with most on here that I would like to hear the band play a more serious album. They can still have the image and the sound, I'd just like to hear them lose the 'comedy' lyrics. I actually don't mind this song, but I've heard it 3 or 4 times from every album they have done. They don't shock anymore. Having said that, as a few have mentioned, they are reaching heights on the charts that mo

Love her work with Devin Townsend. A unique voice too. Loved her last solo album and if this one is heavy in sound, then I cannot wait!

I like that a lot! How long have these guys been around for? WTF is it with sWeden? Population of less than 10 million yet so many great artists and bands come out of that country! Incredible music scene in Scandanavia. Sweden, Norway and Finland have kept the metal and hard rock scene alive in the last 5-10 years for me..

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
