The point in the video when you know it's gonna be fresh, top quality stuff

It's a shame about the band name because they are in fact, not a big deal.

Is The Magnificent the only Frontiers creation in the last 10 years that doesn't suck? Yes, that band is derivative as hell, but they made it work without being lame or cringey. I like the AOR style, but all these bands are fucking stupid.

Surely there's someone else out there than him.  Surely......anyone!

What the hell is this? This is terrible! Plus everyone in that band looks completely strung out.

Someone gotta tell the labelís owner to stop.

I bet he wonít, but come on, in his mind itís quantity over quality, and thatís not good.

He looks even more stiff than the rest of them. And the clothes the women are in? Laughable, and not in any way sexy.

It brought me joy. Laughed my head off!

I hate metal videos in general. I enjoyed this one more than the recent Arch Enemy ones, for example,  but they are essentially both the lame same.

I'd be careful using "get behind" and Frontiers in the same sentence.
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

I spoke with a guy who's releasing a new album through Frontiers this week, who was very blunt in the interview and said "a lot of the Frontiers releases sound exactly the same, so I wanted mine to be a little bit more creative than average".

No, I  haven't listened to his new album.  But yes, Ronnie always delivers it! I interviewed him when one of the Nordic Union albums came out, and he was really cool. The guy I spoke with today is Mark Boals, who sang with Yngwie for many years.

Interesting Boals said that about Frontiers.  His solo and Ring of Fire stuff are on Frontiers.  But that's kind of back when Frontiers were good.

Because they are written by one dude - who tends to be in all the videos as well 🤨

I was thinking he must be really busy, writing so many songs, but then I realised heís probably been compiling them for 30 years and now he has an outlet for them.

He's working on a new Ring of Fire album...but without Virgil or Tony.

I'd get behind the idea of Frontiers not making cringy music videos.  Would that phrase suffice?

Hmmm....not interested then.  Unless it's George Bellas again.

Resurrecting the pointless thread from a couple of pages down to say the new Black Swan album is excellent.

I also found these Aussie guys on YouTube a few days back and was pleasantly surprised- Dangerous Curves. Sound like the last Danger Danger album.

Thereís life out there yet 😁

Ooohhh... didn't know Black Swan had a new release.  Dammit - another added to the 2022 list (which is rather long at the moment).

I'm in the midst of spinning the new First Signal album.  Exactly what I'd want/expect out of this act.  Helps that I'm a big fan of HH's voice.

The Black Swan came out yesterday but for some reason was not on Spotify. The first two singles of the new album were though. It sounds great and Robin McAuley sounds incredible.

Was just coming on to see what the feeling was on Black Swan but it seems like people enjoy them.  I think both albums are decent and they at least write their own stuff.  Some tasty riffs and solos from Reb Beach and the singer is excellent.  Itís nothing groundbreaking obviously but good enjoyable 80ís sounding cheese rock.  Avoid their videos though!  They look pretty awful!

Axel Rudi Pell used to be my fix for this type of stuff but he hasnít released anything decent in about 10-15 years.

I know youíre being tongue in cheek but I sometimes think that.  Is it just me, have I got bored of his stuff?  Then I put on his early stuff and itís still so good.  His inspiration has totally run dry but he put out a lot of really good (albeit similar!) albums in the 90ís and early 2000ís.  Last decent one was probably Mystica in 2006. 

Listened to a new song of his the other day and the lyrics (admittedly not his strength even in his pomp) were literally just a bunch of his stock phrases pasted together in random order making little or no sense.

Pretty much agree with all that Peter.  His older stuff is fantastic but the newer stuff not much.  The last really good one for me was Tales of the Crown.  I thought that was really excellent.
