Yeah, I like it. There really is nothing wrong with it. But there is nothing that grabs me and makes me want to turn it up and play it again and again! Thought The Connection had too many songs overall, but had some rockin' tracks. Overall it's a better album for mine. 'Devil' is a cool track from the new album. I like 'Broken As Me', and also the final track 'Warriors', but the rest I've heard b

I've had a couple of listens, and it's solid. Nothing really stands out on the album. I don't think it's as heavy as past albums. Has a more melodic feel to it. Production is good and the songs are ok, but I have the feeling I've heard most of it before from these guys.

It's ok. Would have fit nicely on the SOLA album. Tour announcement for Australia next week. They are coming in May. I'll be at the Melbourne and Sydney shows to say goodbye! They were a massive part of my High School days. Loved the Crue. Glad I get to say goodbye.

Very solid album. Had no doubts it would be good, as I love both these guys. I'm not sure it sounds exactly like Lynch Mob or Stryper throughout the whole album, but it definitely leans towards one or the other at times. The opening track sounds more like modern day Stryper, while the very next track Dying Rose has a more Lynch Mob groove to it. For some reason I never pictured these two guys

Excellent Idea!!! Thank you so much for doing this! It is so hard to keep up with releases across all genres of hard rock/metal. Thank you also for adding the heavier releases as well, as I love the heavier stuff as much as the lighter side of rock/metal. PS - Looks like I'm up for a hell of a lot of cash this year!!! Going to be a lot of cool releases consistently over the year.

Wardy, I'm not surprised they are going back to a more Death Metal sound, as Nick sang vocals on the latest Bloodbath album, while Greg has been letting his Death Metal creative juices flow in Vallenfyre. They have gradually been getting heavier with each release since Host. It's like they are going full circle. The thing is, I don't mind which way they go as they have a great sense of melody

I'll give you Depeche Mode for sure. Maybe not quite Duran Duran, but it was definitely their 'pop' album with little or no guitars and all keys. They have redeemed themselves since that album for sure. I'd like them to re-visit 'Host' and rework the album into a more heavy sound with guitars more prominent. A lot of the songs I've heard live from that album actually sound solid.

Besides their Duran Duran moment in 'Host', every album of theirs is a winner for me. Draconian Times is possibly the band at their peak. A lot of Metallica influences in the music, and was easily their most commercial(accessible album to that point). They really did progress nicely as a band IMO. As you say, their self titled album is a must have. I really do look forward to every release of the

Agree. Solid album. I'd heard the name of the band before, but never got around to checking them out. I can't imagine any fan of the power metal scene not liking this one. Lead singer does have a real rock voice which is a nice change from the more operatic female singers you usually get within this type of music. Solid production, some great guitar work, catchy choruses, this album has a lot

Am I the only one who really enjoyed 'Break The Silence'? I thought it was a really solid album. The title track alone is equal to anything they have done in the past(IMO).Yes, Rankin's vocals is missed, and Dante struggles in the live arena, but I felt his vocals were solid on the last album. I was very pleasantly surprised. Looking forward to this album. Really glad they are still together

I too have visited this site for many many years. I still check it one way or another every day. I really appreciate the effort that Andrew puts into this site. I always enjoy reading his reviews and find his reflections and scores similar to mine often. Since the new format has arrived I do tend to visit this forum more than the main page though, as I am still finding the layout etc a little

Many albums these days, especially mainstream, seem to be way too long. Too may songs, and way too much filler. Foo Fighters are possibly the biggest rock act in the world right now, and they release an album with only 8 songs, virtually an ep! I like the balls Dave Grohl has. It's a great concept that goes hand in hand with the doco's he's doing on each studio. For me, I love the concept, an

I agree. Really enjoying the new one. I thought their last album was solid without being amazing. However Stereo Messiah takes them to a new level in my book. Not much of a fan of the last track 'Tears Never Dry', but the rest of the album is really really good. Adds to a very solid year of releases.

The riff isn't just familiar, it is a blatant rip off of Dio's Holy Diver! Pretty much note for note. I heard the song on the background on radio, and actually thought my ears were deceiving me as local radio would never play Dio. But it was the new Foo Fighter song. I'll assume Dave Grohl has done it on purpose(at least I hope so) as he is a very big fan of the metal genre, and even was in t

Was talking to a mate about this the other day. He was contemplating buying the new Slash album, but he said he was waiting for the inevitable deluxe version or tour edition to come out! It's a joke! To reward fans who rush out and buy the product when it's released, they should be offered the best available version then and there. Make it a limited edition or put a few extra $$$ onto it. But

I'm assuming the majority of people who buy music, movies these days have a blu ray player! Every release should be on blu ray now, not dvd! I don't get it. I understand it might cost a little more, but come on. Move with the times! I'll happily pay an extra couple of $$ for blu ray.

It's funny you mention Queen, I was thinking the same thing on this album. Definitely has some Queen elements to the music. I like the album. Don't love it just yet. I still find the debut is their best work. But I'd rate this album equal to their last. It's solid. A little too poppy for my liking at times. 'Stars' is a great song, however, albeit mostly solid, there is nothing else on the al

Wow! That sounds amazing! Is that Chris Laney on bass? I know he was in Zan Clan. Are they still together? Would love to hear a new album. I loved their debut album a number of years ago. Besides the live disc released a little after that, I have heard nothing from the band at all. This version of SM 'Nervous' sounds great!

I loved Shotgun Messiah. Maybe one of the rare ones who loved all 3 albums. They progressed unlike a lot of bands around the same era who hit the scene back in the late 80's. Skold was a big part of that progression. The debut was a solid bubble gum type of hard rock album, but you could tell the band had some talent. While the second album 'Second Coming' is still one of my favourite hard ro

Hey Daniel, there is a youtube clip of them performing the ballad 'Missing You'. Is it from that show???? An amazing and emotional song! One of the best ballads I've heard in years! Tom has got an incredibly powerful and emotion filled voice. He should get more recognition within the metal/prog metal world! They now have a fantastic back catalogue with amazing highlights from every single release

Threshold is solid. I just don't think it has the emotion and the layers that the new Evergrey has! I haven't connected with an album like this for a very long time! And I agree about H.E.A.T. I thought they had album of the year wrapped up(which is an amazing album), however, Hymns For The Broken has surpassed it with a speeding bullet!

Simply outstanding album! There has been some cracking releases so far this year, but this still stands out from them all. It has everything from huge riffs, to incredible melodies, to heartfelt ballads and the vocals by Tom is as always incredible. A cruelly under rated band IMO. I've noticed many perfect scores online in regards to reviewing this album, you can add another one here. A masterpie

Anyone checked these guys out yet? The label on the cd said Pantera meets Black Stone Cherry, and I gotta agree with them. Basically a heavier version of BSC more than a Pantera vibe, however there are lots of heavier moments. Really solid album with great instrumentation and a vocalist who has the Southern pipes to carry it off. Highly recommend to anyone into either BSC or likes their music a t

Fantastic album. Every bit as good as his last, if not better. Very solid album from start to finish. 17 songs is a bit long, however, I struggle to find a dud amongst the 17. The front half of the album is among the best Slash has produced in his whole career. Great solid hard rock album.
