Drivin' is more AOR, isn't it?

Nope.  In fact they were so loud when I saw them in CT back around 1994 that my girlfriend and I had to leave because we were both getting headaches.   Before we left I did buy one of their T-shirts that said "Turn it up or turn it the F*** off!"

It was the tour for their "Smoke" album:



They're really hard to describe.  Sort of alt-hardrock-folk.  Lead singer Kevin Kinney's vocals are an "acquired taste" but the music is so varied and interesting that I've gotten used to it and since he's the sole songwriter this band is his project.  This was probably the closest they ever got to a "hit":




But then they also do songs like this:



I know it's way more information/videos than you wanted but DnC are definitely NOT AOR!  Very Happy

This is one of the bands I fell in love with while working the graveyard shift for a ministry back in the mid 80s. I used to listen to the Vanderbilt college radio station and they played Drivin' n' Cryin' a lot. I have all the band's stuff.

Yeah, that's not what I thought it would be. I'll have to find some and listen to it today.

I dug that one out over the weekend. Therion is about the only symphonic metal band I still listen to of all the bands I bought stuff by from that period in my listening life.

They are by far the best of them as well. I find this album a pretty relaxing one. There are a few faster songs, but the other ones are melodic and relaxing.

Thank goodness for the internet.  Today MLB Central played this song as they went to a break.  I recognized it but just couldn't place it.  I finally found it after googling the first couple lines of the chorus - which is what MLB Central played.  I forgot I even had this album.  I'm sure I bought it for this song.

I was expecting them to sound different. I must be thinking of a different band.

In case you need further convincing, you know how bands usually bury the "throwaway tracks" later in the album?  This is track 9:

I'm getting as bad as you not remembering which albums you've bought!

Man, the search function sucks!

I went looking for your original thread and got nothing.  I used the terms "Dio" and "Triddana" and got zilch.  Hell, I just posted something with the word "Triddana" in it and yet the search function couldn't find it? 

Either the search function sucks or I'm an idiot and don't know how to use it (which could easily be because my brain is fried.  Enterprise development teams have sucked big time for the last 10 days and I have to keep cleaning up their messes).

You're right. It does seem absolutely useless!

That's really a stupid name but that song is pretty good.

It is a stupid name. They really don't sound like what I thought they would. There is a lot of AC/DC worship in there.

They sound exactly like I thought they would, probably because Sin/City (one of the biggest AC/DC clones around) have a song called "Hellectric" and that's what that name made me think of.

Toho, I know what you think of these guys, but I like this song.

Hardbone - Tailor Made

These guys sound more like Brian Johnson AC/DC than Brian Johnson AC/DC.



As "samey" as this style is somehow I just never get tired of it.
