T.N.T is back with the classic line up and their best work since INTUITON,this new EP is their 8th studio release and contains 4 new songs and 1 unreleased from the TELL NO TALES sessions,however if you?re a huge T.N.T fan you might wanna check up the japanese version of this EP titled "Taste" because it contains one bonus track called "Magic little nightmare" which is an adorable ballad where Tony Harnell sings super.
What a year this is for all T.N.T lovers,first we?ve got THE BIG BANG collection with the best songs they have ever done(I couldn?t have chosen better ones)and now this new EP will be released June 2nd,and above that we can look forward for a whole new studio album this fall on MTM records,far out!!!
3 of the songs on "Give me a sign" is also included on the BIG BANG collection namely "Hey love","Satellite " and "Destiny" so many of you may think that there?s no reason to buy this EP if you already have BIG BANG! But there you are wrong,the other two tracks is a must if you hunger for new T.N.T stuff,the title track "Give me a sign" is the weaker one of them two but is still a real nice piece of work with a modern touch like hearing a mix of "Transistor" and "Firefly" but better ?coz I didn?t like those two albums that much.
The other new song is the opening track of the EP called "Live today" and it?s rocking loud with classic Le Tekro guitars and a typical Harnell chorus in the same winds as the INTUITION album,great song!
For those who haven?t heard the new songs on the BIG BANG collection I will continue here with "Hey love" which is a strong powerful ballad like a sister of "End of the line",it?s nice to recognize their sound again,right on boys!
"Destiny" is an unreleased song from the TELL NO TALES sessions and is more of a fast metal tune,okay song that sounds a bit dated compared to the new stuff.
The best song on the EP is "Satellite",it became a fave right away when I heard the beat like taking Narada Michael Walden?s hit Gimme gimme gimme in a hard rock way,I can also sense an upspeeded "Easy street" in the harmonies on this song,lovely tune!
"Realized fantasies" from 92 had it?s moments and is a real good album but this new EP is better and takes T.N.T back to their grande heydays of "Knights of the new thunder","Tell no tales" and "Intuition!. Not with the same sound or so,just the same good songs and with the same feeling but in a modern package.
T.N.T gave us a sign and it was a good one.......
Morty Black,Diesel Dahl,Tony Harnell and Ronni Le Tekro ,The knights of the new thunder roars again!
