Hey there! I'm closing this place down and the migration of data to a new, improved website has started already, so keep in mind that anything you post from now is gonna be wiped! Will be back shortly with news. Cheers //LONDON
I'm still alive
It's true that we've been neglecting the street team recently.
But basically, neither of us has the time to do it properly anymore. We probably should have looked for someone new earlier, but it's better late than never!
So if you're interested in taking over, send me a message saying why you think you should get the job, and then I'll pick someone and make them admin on the facebook page.
But warning, it can be hard work! What Fizzy says is right, it's very difficult to persuade anybody else to help out.

sounds a little heavier I think, I like it!
Not bad...could be better though I think. It's not so catchy...the chorus seems to drag a little.
Hehe I also notice that they're doing the big hair skulls thing....just like Crashdiet
I strongly consider to fly over too
Would be awesome to see you there

thought about that too, but isn't it a bit unfair fore the people who are living for example in Australia and can't afford to buy so many things because it's expensive (shipping ) ?
coz: the less things they buy, the less reviews they can write, so the chance to win something isn't high, rite?^^

Bullet are kinda funny. I think so anyway. They aren't a bad band but I can't take them seriously...I think it's because of the singer... http://www.myspace.com/bulletsweden
Also I would have thought Crashdiet were more famous than Bullet, but maybe not...
glam_junkie wrote:did you read the whole review... it makes perfect sense.
"CRASHDÏET was born in a new millennium where the rock n roll scene had almost died out. No looks, no tricks, no flash and balls and definitely a lack of big songs. Inspired by bands like SKID ROW, GUNS ´N ROSES, KISS and W.A.S.P, CRASHDÏET brought back the big shows, the rough-edge sleaze anthems and the rawness of an unpredictable and dangerous band. "
Basically it's saying in an era where music and rock shows are boring, crashdiet is bringing back the excitement.
Ah yeah, you're right

I was wondering if it was a put down or it was suppose to be positive in a weird way. But it floored me because they are CRASHDIET'S Record Label. The other reviews for Y & T Facemelter has this review which should be a long the line of what should be said about Generation Wild.
Artist: Y & T
Release date: 21/05/2010
If you haven't yet taken Y&T's new album for a ride, grab your leathers, strap yourself in, and prepare to have your face melted. Y & T: FACEMELTER
Most reviews are positive including Pretty Maids release so it has me thinking hmmm and no they didn't. Generation Wild Rocks and should be given a stellar review especially from the label that is distributing the album. I've never seen a review from SunCity Records, Eonian and some of the other Sleaze/Glam labels ever put down somebody that they were distributing. I am so not liking that..
I am a female and am unable to change my gender or add a pic to my profile. Freedomhelena (Wanda)
Sounds to me like it's maybe a bad translation from Italian or something, or someone with bad English wrote it...
It would be pretty stupid of the label to put down one of their own bands...you should email them and point it out, it's probably a misprint that they haven't noticed

first time for me to hear Native nature, AWESOME!! that riff already catched me after that studio clip. blew me away!! Simon Collected some more pluspoints
Martin has a new tatotoo, which is great
and WHOOOOO I LOVE this Band
Mrs V. Viper wrote:Are you guys serious?!?!?!?!?!?!?
I think every fan you got the link (and I'm talking mainly about the fans who got it early) should have just kept their mouth shut!! And not be so stupid and listen to it with scrobble so everyone can see it ad starts searching for it.
And now you open this thread, and those who maybe didn't realised til now that it leaked will search it too.
And there will be those who mght have buyed the Album on the 14th butnow they have it already and think"uh..I'll buy it later" and then it will MAYBE never happen. Mybe it will not harm the band finacially seen, yews because it would have been on the net the 14th evening anyway.
Bute ther are reasons for things like release dates... and it's not supposed to be out. Period.
Magazine reviewers have had the album for ages now, what's the difference if we get to listen to it too?
And the people who don't buy it on the 14th because they heard it now are the people who would wait to download it after the release date and not buy it anyway.
Who's listening to it with scrobble? And I downloaded the 1 minute samples before - when I listen to them with scrobble or MSN or whatever it looks to others like they're the real songs, so what should I do? XD
Rox Flowers wrote:Hey, don't be a pirate. :evil: It doesn't support the band in any way.
Doesn't harm them either, I think everyone here who's downloaded the leak has also pre-ordered the album, so there's no problem.

it was very funny i have to admit It all started because i wear a Airbourne shirt wich features a skull

Hahaha I've never met someone like that, I thought they only existed in the 80s... I want to meet one!
MrLee wrote:i also think they should left the B-sides on the album too XD
N maybe had So Alive as the opener, removed Armageddon n replaced it with Sick Mind
Top track for me...definately Native Nature. I mean, you get filthy riffs, cowbell, sleaze....and..... "HUH!" and probably the best guitar solo on the album.
I think this is a damn good album....do i think its topped R.I.S though? No....Rest in Sleaze was a bit grittier which gives it the edge for me. Generation Wild is very polished. I guess it depends on your preferences with production though.
Strange that you don't like Armageddon, I think it's one of the strongest songs, but fair enough!
I like every single track on the album - I couldn't name a favourite but my least favourite is probably Rebel. Still a great song though!
There's one part in Chemical, it sounds really poppy, almost dance music. I quite like it though, makes me want to sing along.
I think the album definitely has a good mix of hard rockers (Native Nature) more poppy numbers (Chemical) and ballads (Save Her, Beautiful Pain).
And I think it tops RIS. For me anyhow. RIS has a couple songs that I don't really like, I like every song on GW. And it seems to be going back to their 80s roots a bit more than RIS did. And I'm usually a fan of more polished production, although RamPac and Lindell seem to have preserved the grit under the polish In any case, they're both awesome albums. Generation Wild without question beats any other album I've heard since RIS came out.
As promised, enjoy!
Crashdiet want to break new ground
Have seven years, three albums and one death cleaned up Crashdiet's dirty sleaze at heart?
Would not believe it.
- We're wild, we'll fuck you up says Simon Cruz and returns quietly to his beer.
Spandex, swinging hips and scratchy falsetto vocals. In 2003 Crashdiet made their rock'n'roll dreams a reality. Seven years later, the band is releasing their third record, "Generation Wild".
- It's been a bit of a journey, if you can put it like that. When we started it was chaos. We partied our talent away. But over time we've learnt that it's not good to let the music suffer. It's much better if you put the music before the partying, says guitarist Martin Sweet.
The band's heaviest blow came in 2006 when their singer Dave Lepard committed suicide.
The tragedy split the band.
- We were a different band at that time, not so close together. It was turbulent and we argued a lot, so there were mixed feelings when he died. First we were as pissed as hell at him, that he could do such a thing. But with time, it sunk in that it was about something deeper than the band. He felt mentally ill and when we began to understand the whole thing...it turned very quickly to missing him, says Martin Sweet.
He goes quiet.
- We became much closer to each other after his death. And we realised that there wasn't time to argue and mess around. We are together in the band because we love making music. That's the only thing we want.
- What can we live for if we don't live for music? That's why we've ended up here. We can't imagine living any other life, adds the bands new singer Simon Cruz.
He joined before the work on "Generation Wild".
- I rang up. I thought that I'd have to get to know the guys a little, try playing a little. We did the whole thing; audition, travelled and drank together, everything you should do with a band. We wrote a few songs and it felt so good, better than all expectations, says Cruz.
And how does it feel now?
- I have fucking huge hopes. I think we can take every fucking little village in the USA. And the rest of the world.
The new album "Generation Wild" has made them even more cocky.
- It's quite 80s, but with a modern touch. Dirty guitar riffs, big choruses, fat drums and shrill vocals. That's what we stand for - raw fucking damnation and rock'n'roll, says Martin Sweet.
- The inspiration comes from our experiences in town or in the pub, our partying. And we write about what we think is difficult in life, says Simon Cruz.
What can be difficult?
- Like, working. Getting up in the morning, that kind of thing. Being hungover.
Martin Sweet continues:
- To be forced to do something you don't want to do to make ends meet. We don't have time to work, we do what we want. So-called shambles-bands...it shines through that it's half-hearted. You can't have a fulltime job and be a serious band.
Was a bit bored so I translated the latest album review for everyone, enjoy!
Crashdiet formed in 2000 and made their breakthrough with the debut “Rest In Sleaze”. On the 20th January 2006 frontman Dave Lepard (David Hellman) was found dead. The band continued with Finn Olliver Twisted, who’s now been replaced by Simon Cruz.
Whether Swedish Sleaze is still able to make an impression depends on whether the public accept Crashdiets third singer in as many albums. Simon Cruz undeniably has everything – from a cocky look to a both clean and attitude-full voice. With him at the front the band has found a brilliant bridge between their own past and hard rock’s cemetery. They plunder keenly and primarily from Skid Row (“Native Nature”) but also from the delicious mega-backing vocals of extravagant 70s glam. And is it not the Beatles who are watching over “Chemical”?
It may be sacrilege, but Generation Wild actually trumps the holy debut “Rest In Sleaze”.

Yeah...I was hoping there would be some more posts here since then, so it would move down
But everyone is looking way too deep into this video.
When a director makes a video, EVERYTHING they choose to have in it is there for a reason. So you have to look into it deeply.
For instance, even the chair Simon is sitting on. Someone had to pick that chair out from among some other chairs. Why did they choose that one?
(You don't need to answer that question, it's just an example)

the kind of drill you see people workmen digging up roads with? theyre loud... and you see these blokes with earmuffs...
theyre probably ear muffs....
who cares anyway!?!? its a cool video, and doesnt HAVE to relate to the song!?
she just wants to fuck him up! hahaha
Actually...I checked again, maybe they aren't headphones, they have a of wires going to them.
Although I think if the director wanted them to be some virtual-reality thing, he should have made it more obvious. They look like headphones if you don't look closely.
nage wrote:...taking off her earphones and walking away...
It's not earphones. It's something that's attached to the sides of her head. Kinda looks like medical equipment.
I think they are earphones...the big kind that hooks round your ear. I think she listens to Generation Wild on her break from work, and imagines doing all that stuff to Simon.
