October 24, 2020: ONE WEEK REMAINING in the Annual Heavy Harmonies Donation Drive!

Donations stand at covering 63% of the site's annual expenses... so close and yet so far. The annual donation drive is what keeps the site free for everyone so that I'm only pestering you once a year rather than running ads year round.

If you are not in a position to contribute (which I fully understand), please disable your ad-blocker on heavyharmonies.com. When you click through any of the eBay links, if you buy something on eBay, Heavy Harmonies will get a tiny commission.

Donation buttons are shown below. There is a thread on the HH forum that explains the perks for donating at the $20 and $50 levels.

Thank you for supporting the Heavy Harmonies community!

-Dan

I've ordered this one, but I'm not sure if I ever will get it. If it is as good as their previous work (from yeaaaars ago !) it should be pomp at its best. Does anyone know more about this newie ?????

This is for everybody who misses the old AOR days of music. The music is contagious and not cookie cutter. For me, there isn't a higher compliment. This is along the lines of Tommy and Quadrophenia by The Who. It only gets better with each listen... seriously! Personally, going on four days of nothing but, and I'm not planning on changing this out of my CD player anytime soon. I give this the highest recommendation I can - it was the best money I've spent on a CD in memory.

********************************Para empezar este comentario tuve que averiguar que significa pomprock, mas que nada porque quería estar seguro de, si voy a copiar este nombre que no lo tenia registrado, que tuviese sentido. De todas maneras, pomp rock o pomprock es una forma de definir mas o menos a una banda AOR bien progresiva, la que cuenta con muchos teclados al mejor rock progresivo de los 70’s y con bases un poco mas fuertes sin llegar a un metal.

From: lucasgordon Date: September 2, 2006 at 1:53
Sin embargo se pueden apreciar varios pasajes guitarescos’ y una voz claramente que encaja mas en la movida metal melódico que hard rock o rock, particularmente la de Jim Johnston, vocalista de JAD, con un timbre muy cambiante, por momentos muy Yes. De repente aparecen los teclados al mejor estilo Styx, Yes años setentas, y varias de sus canciones pasan del hard rock al sinfonismo con un simple salto; algo muy normal en esta corriente musical.

Creo que esta es una forma bien precisa de definir lo que Jaugernaut (A.D.) ofrece en esta nueva producción, la cual tiene un par de datos particulares. Uno, muchas de estas canciones que vieron la luz recientemente, fueron grabadas en el 95’. Segundo, esta banda tiene historia en los 70’s, por lo que pasaron unos 20 años o mas para que algún fan de aquella época tenga la suerte de escuchar “algo nuevo” de Jaugernaut (A.D.),

From: lucasgordon Date: September 2, 2006 at 1:55
que antes se llamaba sin el “(A.D.)”, sus discos de vinilo son rarezas que en Ebay superan los $100 dolarillos’. Algo raro es que la parte grafica no esta muy producida, algo raro, ya que la mayoría de las bandas que componen esta vertiente rockera, suelen acompañar a sus discos con muchos tribales o dibujos, y esto no ocurre en “Contra-Mantra”.

From: lucasgordon Date: September 2, 2006 at 1:56
“The hard way” sale completamente del todo comentario anterior, tiene una onda mucho mas hard rock melódico, me recuerda a los ingleses Thunder, sin dudas el mejor tema del disco. Sin dudas, Jaugernaut (A.D.) ha logrado un muy buen producto, cual recomiendo así como su historia, para aquellos que lean ingles, entren a su pagina y denle una mirada, esta interesante. *************************************Lucas H Gordon www.myspace.com/lucasgordon
