The issue is that he's on every fucking album being released. To me, using the "vocalist du jour" takes away from the specialness of a project.
He's a good vocalist, but not so pleasurable to warrant his participation in all of the albums he's on, at least in my opinions.
Seems to me there aren't a ton of them to choose from. Singers with good pipes, experience doing this sort of thing, and with just enough notoriety to show up on people's radar. And singers have a relatively short shelf-life. When guys like him come around they get a lot of work. People like Schenker have always looked for these guys (including Romero). It doesn't seem odd that he's finding a lot of work right now.

And before that it was Doogie White.   I get that.
Meant to include Doogie, although he might be included in the Schenker thing. And Blackmore is the same way with the singers de jour (including Romero, who I believe he's responsible for in the first place).

Yeah, supposedly Candace found him on the inter webs (Ritchie ought to be paying more attention; if Candace is off searching handsome young Spanish (Chile by way of Spain) singers on the internet!!!) for the Rainbow reunion/select shows. From there, he went to MSG, Vandeburg, etc.

Doogie was also "discovered" by Candace; he had sent in a tape to Blackmore and she heard it; he then did the "Strangers In Us All" record with Rainbow in '94 following the end of his second stint with Purple.

It's all Blackmore's fault.   :) :) :) :) :).  He discovered, more or less, Ian Gillan, Ronnie Dio, Graham Bonnet, Joe Lynn Turner, Doogie White, and Ronnie Romero, all of whom went on to work in some form or another with Iommi, Malmsteen, and/or Schenker.

Yeah, Malmsteen would certainly be touring with Romero right now if his ego permitted it (and Romero were an idiot).

Ok, "The Sinner Rides Again" is a cool title with a not-so-in-your-face throwback to the song, but "One MORE shot at Glory" is just lame.

What are the other song titles? Breaking all the Laws? Running Wilder? You Can Be Both Old and Wise? Two Touches of Evil?

listen I keep wanting to give KK a fair chance but he needs to stop with the song titles that make me roll my eyes before hearing a note.......also he should probably stop naming songs after awesome songs in general. It sets expectations a bit high.


EDIT: Yeah just listened to it and it's pretty solid. It's no One Shot at Glory (see complaint above) but it's not bad. I like the production and at least on my tv speakers has some power to it. Ripper looks like he's dropped some weight and I think he sounds better than he did on the last album.

Looking at the tracklist I see another song named after the Sentinel. Once again if you're gonna make a spiritual sequel to a fan favorite you really have to bring it. Otherwise I'll just be thinking of a better song the entire time.

I can't even fucking listen to this on principle. This would be like Adrian Smith leaving Iron Maiden and joining forces with Blaze Bayley and calling it H's Maiden. WTF?? The album is called The Ancient Mariner Rides Again. And their songs would be Still Scared Of the Dark,  One Minute To Midnite (Gettin' Closer), and The Troopers.
WTF?
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums........or WTF.  ;D
TAC got a higher score than me in the electronic round? Honestly, can I just drop out now? :lol

Personally, I think he should title songs the opposite of famous Priest songs.

Ram it Up, Day Walker, Obeying the Law, Dying Around Noon, You've Got This Specific Thing Coming, etc.

Not a bad song. Gotta say, I've intentionally avoided seeing Priest for the last ten or so years. They're a shell of the band they once were. I'd happily drop $20 to see KK's band play somewhere. More if he still had Les Binks in that lineup.

Given Adrian's very publicized love of fishing, it would probably be "The Grouper"  :D

In all seriousness though I hope they hold back on the cheese this time. Less of the corny songs about rocking that plagued the last album for me please.

Also I was curious and the last album only 4 out of the 10 tracks didn't have the word metal in the lyrics.

I laughed when I saw the song title pop up in my YouTube feed but I went back and listened to it.  It's actually pretty solid.

I'm taking this shit to a new level.  Work these out;

Misses took my car keys by accident and now I can't go out.

Accidently ran across some geezers lawn cause a car was coming and got the shits and told me to get the fuck off his lawn.

This bastard of a lolly just broke a fucking tooth!

Boss is pissing me off.  Gonna knock the cunt out soon.

Misses yelling profanities at me again leaving skidies in the toilet just after she cleaned it.

Fuck!  This is wrong fucking exit.  This takes me onto the fucking M1!

Got ripped off.  Bought a new TV but then the assholes had a sale the next day. 

Gave it to the misses in a fine performance last night!

I know we probably wondered that for Firepower as well, but this might be their last studio album. Let's hope they go out with a bang  :metal

The little audio snippet that they've released sounds great.  I can't remember the last time Priest had such a prominent odd-time riff.
