Actually getting them into HMV is up to the record label and I believe it's Century Media over there. So Mang needs to contact there label rep and find out why distribution isn't doing their job! Again this was the first tour in Europe/UK and it was VERY successful. They also met with the record co reps so things are starting to move in the right direction. However, it will depend on promotion, without it this band or ANY band has no chance for success!Again, just saying that this style of music has a large audience, and YES with proper PR and everything, this band could out sell DT or SX. I do listen to the radio, like everyday, and this is exactly the type of music i hear on the rock/metal stations.Weather they are bands that started 10 yrs ago or the brand new bands popping up today. Amob fits right into that genre of music, they are not clones of Disturbed for sure but they are in the same genre of music. DT only sells like about 80,000 to 100,000, if even, in the USA only, and that isn't an accurate amount!!!
I'm in no way insulting DT cause in the Prog world thats pretty damn good, with no radio play!!!!! So in the hard rock world that isn't impossible to outsell that, and SX I have no idea what they sell but I don't think it's even close to what DT sells. Remember I'm talking USA ONLY.
The question of SX, well, they are fine Russ is doing shows with them in Sept. He is the singer for SX and that is all there is to it. There is no need for questions or speculations many people in music are in more then 1 band. Disturbed is on a hiatus??? I know nothing about the internal goings on with that band.
I'd love to hear more of everyones opinion.
So, lets see, my favorite DT album I'd say Images and Words, well, Scenes from A Memory. I don't know I guess those 2 are a tie.
Just so you know I'm not insulting Prog, it's just not my cup of tea. However, I love the musicianship!! The playing blows me away. I just can't handle these songs that go on and on forever and the giant long solos/jam sessions, odd time changes, LOL!! I want to bang my head and feel the beat, I want to sing along to great chorus that repeats itself over and over and over and over and over, actually i don't even need to hear a solo at all the entire song could be one big chorus LOL!!!!! Sorry I'm just being silly, it's like 6:30 am and I have no idea why i'm up writing this
I got to try to go back to sleep NITE NITE!
