I like that Place Vendome song better than the first single.

The song develops into something pretty decent - enough to keep me cautiously interested I suppose.

I agree.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related

Meh, from a single listen, I didn't dig that Place Vendome song much at all really.  Classy Gus G solo though.

Well the new Gotthard is a big snooze - the importance of Steve Lee (RIP) is getting more obvious with each new record.

Didn't expect anything else tbh.

New House of Lords. Pretty dull and James sounds like he's struggling a bit.

Pretty standard affair from HOL, but not too bad.  I'll check out the album, the last one was pretty damn good IMO.

Sounds fine enough, but I don't think I'd be interested enough to hear the album.

Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

And new Eclipse which no doubt everyone down at mr.com has already wet (or W.E.T.) themselves over  :P

Apart from a passable riff , it's really just throwaway stuff IMHO.

Yeah, nice riff and good energy. Having been suffering from vertigo for the last few months I can adopt this as my anthem  :biggrin:

Yeah - the House of Lords is decent and at least doesn't sound totally derivative like the Eclipse.

But boy..............three of the biggest names in the biz and they all sound very tired.

House of Lords gets the most interest from me but that's not saying much.

Didn't mind the Eclipse song at all, pretty solid. I've never got into their music in the past, I always found it listenable but a little sterile and indistinct. Not sure this new song changes my mind much, but it sounds a tiny bit more energetic and raw than what I recall of their previous stuff. I like the production and vocals at least, so I might check it out anyway and see.

And it will absolutely get at least 98% from mr.com :lol

I'm a bit of an Eclipse fanboy myself so about to listen to this track for the first time.  Lets see if my opinions and overall thoughts on this genre have taken a turn like I think they have.

Same formula, same thing yet again.  It's one of those songs that would be a catchy grower I reckon, but like most of their stuff really.  I don't like the more aggressive vocals from Martensson in parts either, it just sounds flat and bad.  Not holding out for the album but will listen.

I thought that House of Lords was pretty decent, but wouldn't check out the album.  I'll give HOF some credit, they've become consistent with their releases after disappearing for many years.

For you Fair Warning fans I am now most of the way through the new Tommy Heart solo album and it'szzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz


Calling it rock would be pushing it......pop rock maybe.

Don't bother unless you want an album full of songs that resemble the very softest of Fair Warning.   A couple of nice tracks but pretty awful really - and I love his voice.

This is so fucking bad.  It's worth watching just to see and hear how bad this is.  WTF happened to this band?

Pass. I wouldn't say it's utterly bad, so much as wimpy and generic as shit.
And I wish Frontiers didn't have two upcoming albums from bands with Lion in the name (and lions on the cover), because I keep forgetting which is the decent sounding one. :lol

Peterik is still insisting on singing. Why did he even bother getting Toby in when he clearly wants to be the star? He's putting me off liking it. Or maybe it's just shit?

No, it's just shit.  But on the other hand, you're right.  Peterik must be an egotistical dickhead to keep singing when he has Hitchcock there.

Bloody hell  :rollin

Even Jim's guitars are WTF-worthy.  There's so much bad in there it's almost good  :biggrin:

I can't even insult them by saying that their music will appeal to the purple rinse brigade now , because Jim is already a member.

With the sound off, it looks like a Peter Criss/Toby Keith duet.

Toby needs to do another solo album.  And at this rate and that song, a generic, recycled Martensson collection would be most welcome.

there is a new solo album on the way from Toby (it's done and with the label) but no indication as yet regarding who is playing on it or how heavy etc......   Hopefully in a similar vein to the first - one of the few Martensson projects I like and way better than Eclipse.


Another album I will be very interested in is Inglorious 2 which is due in May.   if they can just take the songwriting up a notch ..........no doubt I will be disappointed but give some excellent songs to Nathan and they could be amazing,.

They released a short promo the other day which had some new music in the background. Hard to judge the song itself with all of the talking over it, but the production sounded amazing, as expected with Kevin Shirley behind the desk, and the music sounded like the perfect style of hard rock. I also hope they evolve as songwriters and deliver some great songs, but I'll probably enjoy it regardless given that the band rocks. That's my most anticipated album at the moment.

By far the best thing Martensson has done, and that's coming from an Eclipse fan.  That album is the reason I started this thread.

They could do with some stability in the lineup. They loose members regularly which won't help. First album had some good songs it just missed some magic dust.
