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 get your point Viper. But I'm a bit scared because I see an unofficial release for sale every now.
How much time has passed since the last "hey buy this now"?
I'm not totally against this kind of stuff... I mean, nobody is forced nor bound to buy it. But sometimes it seems like Crashdiet has lost the way and got attracted by the market thing. And this isn't Crashdiet!
Do you remember the line "be yourself not a puppet in their freak show"? And the one that say "I can't stand be in the spotlight?"
I know that fans kept asking for the old demos to be re-released. So why sell only 8 tracks?
Don't get me wrong. I still love these guys but I'm just scared by those fancy banners.
To be honest, I probably won't buy this one. I'm sorry but 22€ are too much for 8 songs which I already have and listened to for years...
What is happening? I see too much business behind Diet's music these days...
I'm sure lots of people won't agree with me but I feel a bit disapointed.
Just my two cents... Cheers guyz!
These songs are A W E S O M E!!!
I think that Crashdiet never released them because they are a bit far from their typical sleaze. But hey, they deserved that money!!!
Cornestone Trippin' was the "Sample 1" from Generation Wild era, while Unforgettable is older stuff. I remember an old instrumental demo called "Can't Stop Loving You"...
I'm still missing sample 9 and Parasite, but I hope it's just a matter of time. One day, we'll probably taste them too .

Yeah, I feel alright. I hate my job, but since these are hard times for Italy (especially for young people), I could say I'm lucky .

cool to see you here again Julius!
Hi Viper, how are ya? I have been following this forum regularly since 2009, but I don't write lots of posts. I'm glad this playground is still alive.
Nice version, it was kinda rare.
Even though I miss the "alarm-like" scream of Olli before the solo, I overall prefer the way Simon actually sings it.
I know they will never re-record it, but I had the chance to hear it live and was awesome.
I really really really liked this live.
I written a review on the market, but I'd like to share it with ya forum fanatics too. I apologise (as every post :p) for my bad english, but I hope it's understandable .
The opening track, Change The World, is a sort of hymn. It encorauges people to think with their own mind and live is just awesome. Circus is another track which comes from the street. Every word smells like gutter, while the guitar keep screaming like a hot girl for the entire song.
The third song, Tikket, is a nice piece of songwriting and it's well performed by the current line-up. Although it has been written by Dave Lepard, Simon and the guyz play it with lots of feeling. Anarchy is just perfect for a live show: it has the words, the power and the blast of a riot.
Then, Breakin The Chainz reminds us the old days, but nowadays it's played in a nice original way, so it sounds like it was written yesterday. Rebel: the title says all. It's one of the most loved track in Generation Wild, but the stage's taste glorify it in a mystic way.
The work behind records infects the studio version of Chemical. Now we have the chance to hear it in a more natural way, enjoying every single note. Queen Obscene is a classic and one of the most beautiful song of the last decade. Live is pure madness, and the guyz know how to exalt it. Then we can admire the sounds of Got A Reason, with experimental riffs and guitar works. This is a nice piece of classic Rock 'n' Roll, and live is as raw as dirty sex.
It's A Miracle and Riot In Everyone are pearls of Dave Lepard; but he's still in Crashdiet's hearts. We clearly feel him, even if they are sang by another rocker. Simon Cruz performs 'em well: in a personal way, but with the right sensations and emotions. Between those two masterpieces, we find Garden Of Babylon. The oriental shades are excited by this live version, which shows us that Crashdiet can make the difference with every song.
Excited could be the sountrack of a Hollywood's Movie. The rythm and the lyrics explode on stage, this version is so emotional and unique. The piano of Otto Welton and the technique of Crashdiet narrate this urban story with feeling and pleasure.
The presence of Liquid Jesus is a good surprise. It's a bonus track, so it wasn't expected to be heard live. Thin Lazy, Linda Öst and Otto Welton give the right “color” at this exibition. This song is perfect for parties and sad days. It took yer pain away. Another anthem is Generation Wild. The title track of the third album of Crashdiet was clearly written to be lived on stage. The lyrics are thrilling and attractive, clearly speaking about the rising of a generation. But every good generation should follow them.
The last track of “Scandinavian Hell Tour 2013” is Cocaine Cowboys. The blues jam acting as intro is something Crashdiet never shared with the fans. It's another revelation of this show and introduces one of the rawest song of the latest studio work. On stage is just wonderful.
So... This is my poor review. I just shared it with you all because this record was worth every money I spent. 100% recommended!
I've written countless songs too.
I find inspiration in everyday life. That's why I nrmally start with the lyrics.
Once the lyrics are quite right and reflects my feelings, I chose a scale and start the music.
I cut some words and sentences, just to fit the rythm.
Sometimes I work with bass 'n' paper, sometimes directly via TuxGuitar. The only limit is your fantasy.
I try to find the notes for the voices too, but this is the hardest part since I'm not a good singer.
Sorry, but to me it's quite good, but nothing special.
I was on the brink of getting bored, just expecting something to happen.
I had the same feeling.
My favourite video is "Cocaine Cowboys": funny and entertaining
ust beacuse everyone is comparing it to RIS
Am I the only one who hates the production in Rest In Sleaze?
And to stay in topic, I think they changed the production because the songs are also different from the standard of Crashdiet. They looked for a rougher feel, which is far from Generation Wild.
But it doesn't exactly sound like live stuffs: listen to the back voices on California for example.
I like the whole thing (it took me some time though, because it's different), but I hate some vocal overdubs (chorus of "Got A Reason"). I can't find the right words, maybe I'll express them in the "fan review" thread.
I miss the "RamPac" duo on some riffs (think about "Drinkin' Without You" with the bass sound of "Down With The Dust"), but Excited is like a pearl (seems like it's ready for a movie).
01. Change the World 8
02. Cocaine Cowboys 5
03. Anarchy 4
04. California 5 (-)
05. Lickin' Dog 4 (+)
06. Circus 8
09. Drinkin' Without You 5
10. Snakes in Paradise 4
11. Damaged Kid 7
12. Excited 9
13. Garden of Babylon 7
I think Simon sings it with more feeling, but maybe it's just me...
And it's not easy to change a song once it's written (think about scales and melodies). Especially for vocals...
You can also listen to the demos before TUR: the song is nearly the same, although singers 'n' lyrics are different.
01. Change the World 8
02. Cocaine Cowboys 4
03. Anarchy 4
04. California 6
05. Lickin' Dog 5
06. Circus 7
09. Drinkin' Without You 5
10. Snakes in Paradise 6
11. Damaged Kid 6
12. Excited 8
13. Garden of Babylon 7
Great surprise! Especially because it's not a typical Crashdiet's song.
I like it, even if it disappears against hits named So Alive, Save Her, Down With The Dust etc...
The guyz prove us another time that they don't care about genres: they really play what they feel.
This is great!
(btw, I love the video because it's so raw :-))

I really like, for example, the bassline on TUR's "Alone".
I'm not so much into the bass of RIS. I prefer how it sounds on TUR and GW.
But it's a matter of taste.
I discovered Crashdiet because of my brother.
TUR's songs like "Alone" and "Thrill Me" still remember me how I was feeling at the moment... Around March 2008!
A storm of bad feelings and good memories...
- My ex-girlfriend kicked me a week before I listened to Crashdiet for the first time. ("...I can be the one, alooooone!...")
- Me and my friends where enjoying speed around hidden streets ("Cheating death burning down the hill...")
I was coming from Heavy Metal (Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Motoerhead) so I became in touch with TUR easily. (But I don't like few songs. I hate "Bound To Be Enslaved" for example).
But RIS blew me away! Songs like "Riot In Everyone", "Out Of Line" and "It's A Miracle" have been staying in my mind since that march 2008.
Anyway, thanxx for this thread!!!
By the way, I think that the real name of "Don't Stop Me Now" is "The Cult".
Listen to the lyrics... I understand:
"All set, ready to go. Don't stop me now, calling at the cult!"
P.S.: (I found this title in a interview)
well said. I don't get all the people calling themselves for "Sixx", "Sleaze" or "Lepard" when there's hundreds of people already using those names.
That's why I added the O on mine
And because I can't compare myself to Dave
Back in topic (maybe ), I bet Sample 6 is called "Parasite"... Isn't it?
Anyway... I want the number 9...
Have you guyz heard the demos of So Alive & Down With The Dust yet?
I think they fucking rocks, especially So Alive
:twisted: MrLee I hate you for that "Don't Stop me Now" :twisted:
So Alive - 10
Save Her - 9
Down With The Dust - 10
Native Nature - 10 (-)
Chemical - 14 (+)
Yesterday I learned to play Chemical with my bass. Such an awesome song with extremely catchy chorus! So, for today, my vote goes for it!

IMHO, Falling Rain and In The Raw are much better with Simon than Olli!!!
I really LOVE how he sings them live!!!
:twisted: :evil: And... I'm still wondering why you guyz hate two songs like Alone and Thrill Me :twisted: :evil:

he got pretty good results with it.
Take a look to Hydrogen: http://www.hydrogen-music.org/?p=main
This is a free drum machine for Gnu/Linux. There is an installer for Windows too.
You can download some drumkits to customize your sound.
And it's easy to use!!!
P.S.: Audacity is a great software

I think the guyz wasted a bit these songs...
Maybe not fear control, that doesn't feel as catchy as some songs need to be. But I don't really care if they're on the album or not, I just want them in better production, Caught in despair with real drums! Sick Mind with better mixing! Awesome!
IMHO, Fear Control has a good solo!!!
I like the way Germany plays football... They always go far in the competitions...
2nd place on 2002
3rd place on 2006
2nd place on Euro 2008
and now 3rd place!!!
Today it's the final step! Good luck to Spain and Netherlands! Both are good teams and I don't really know who will win!
JuLiuS Leopard wrote:So undecided...
Armageddon, Down With The Dust and Bound To Fall are so great!
Save Her and Beautiful Pain are so emotional!!!
MMM... MMM... MMMM... Undecided yeah....
After 2 months I voted for Armageddon!
My favourite setlist is something like this: http://www.crashdiet.org/phpBB3/viewtop … amp;t=3579
