PostSubject: Crossrock   Tue Jul 04, 2017 4:12 pm

I stumbled across another Christian Music Review site this afternoon while surfing around the internet (don't tell Dynamis, I don't want him to be angry with me for "cheating on him" with some other review site).  It's an interesting site, but not nearly as amazing as Angelic Warlord.  Wink

Ok, enough with the tangent..  geek

Turns out this group is from Brazil, and the 80's are still very much alive in their hearts.  I will say that even with the singer's unavoidable accent I find the music to be quite good, and fun.  They have one album that I know of "Come On Baby" that came out in 2014.

Check 'em out.

Despite their accent, this smokes!  The Scorpions had a thick accent but had great commercial success.  I will have to track this down.  It is expensive from Amazon.

Thanks for sharing- looks like Crossrock is another band that fell beneath the radar.  I listened to one of the songs and it sounds real good.  I did find the CD for sale at eBay but a bit pricey with international shipping.

Oh no, don't worry, I think ChristianMoltenMetalBands is a a great site- I already link to it.  I wish there were more sites like it to get the word out about Christian bands.  We are all working towards the same goal.

The CD was a bit high, so I thought I'd scope out eMusic.com.  I found the downloads there for $5.99!!!!

I am on the 4th song of this right now and I must say I am impressed.  This is big budget sounding hair metal!  The accent of the singer is a little distracting, but he is still a good singer and works hard on his enunciation to make up for the accent.  This is an amazing find and I hope they continue making music for years and years to come!

Hasn't that always been the problem with hair/glam rockers?   Very Happy

This sounds terrific! I searched at eMusic and I can't find it. When I search Crossrock, all I get are Crossroads results. Can you give me a link or help me know how you found them on eMusic?

I believe that is because (for some reason) the album has been made "unavailable".  Probably just for the U.S.
Just great, my credits just renewed yesterday and I was going to download it today...so much for that.

https://www.emusic.com/album/431248/Crossrock/Come-On-Baby

It is availible at Amazon as a download for $7.99, which I believe is only about a dollar (or $1.50) more than it was at Emusic

https://www.amazon.com/Come-Baby-Crossrock/dp/B06Y3H42LJ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1499972577&sr=8-1&keywords=crossrock+come+on+baby

Every day, stuff goes missing from eMusic.  They were bought by another company and many of the artists once available are gone.  CD Baby used to distribute through them, so even my albums were there.  Now, everything from CD Baby is gone.  If you want to sell through eMusic, you have to sign up for distribution through TuneCore.  Except for eMusic, every legal download site I'd want to be on is available through CD Baby, and I don't see spending $30 through Tunecore to have my stuff back on just one site.

If eMusic doesn't find a way to make more than just the major label stuff available, I predict an implosion.

Cool. Thanks for the Amazon link. I don't mind paying a couple extra dollars. This is just awesome rock and roll. It reminds me of Intuition-era TNT.

Bummer.

I ordered a cd from a local band (through bandcamp) almost 2 weeks ago and still haven't seen the disc yet.  The band is literally 45 miles from my house...and I paid via paypal.  Kind of wondering whats going on at this point.

It almost sounds as if the band has not even shipped it yet.

I was starting to wonder of maybe they haven't received the discs from the manufacturer or something.  Of course they are a beer drinking partying type band, so maybe their person in charge of merch is really hung over or something.
lol!

I'll give it a few more days and contact them through bandcamp.  I'm much more forgiving of bands trying to handle their own mail order merchandising than I am for labels and distros.
