I cannot imagine Frontier makes any money. How do they do it?
My guess is they foot the bill for a very small recording and promotion budget and then keep every dime from sales.

I don't like the production at all. It's far to "clean" sounding with too much separation of the instruments in the mix. It just sounds odd and disjointed.
You haven't listened to much Voivod I assume.

Certainly better than Poison’s debut. Stronger songs.
Certainly better than one of the most iconic hair metal albums of all time that features a song that could be considered the national anthem of hair metal?

Re: Bands wrongly labeled "hair metal"

Ratt, Twisted Sister, and WASP are not hair metal. Hair metal bands are those who watered down 80's hard rock/metal to make it palletable for mass consumption for those who picked what they liked by what was on the radio. The biggest hair metal bands of all time are Bon Jovi and Def Leppard. Then th...

No. :lol: I didn't think so. :wink: I'm actually surprised the catalogue is worth even $400,000 a year for a single share, assuming the price is accurate. That's a lot of money for songs that would get relatively limited airplay, plus I wouldn't imagine they'd be doing a whole lot of sales. Airplay...

That is what rock and roll is all about.

LOL!

That argument is as weak as it gets.

The album flopped. Was projected to do way better.

It will never even reach 100,000 sold.

Flop by all accounts other than those by fanboys.

Re: Ghost out of Top 200 after just 5 weeks

The record is doing just fine. Comparing it against FFDP -- who have three platinum albums and three others that have gone gold -- isn't much different than comparing it to Metallica. One band is on the rise; the other is trying to maintain. Still, I'd wager that Ghost's next album will have strong...

Re: THE TERM "HAIRBAND" ... Do you find it offensive, or not. When did you first hear it?

A hair band is any of the bands who made music so ridiculously watered down, wimpy, and limp wristed that it allowed Kurt Cobain and the Seattle scene to kill off almost all 80's hard rock/metal.

Warrant
Winger
Firehouse
Slaughter
etc.
