Ha... I knew it was a risk mentioning that in here. I don't want to give anyone the impression that there's any kind of sexual themes or even undertones to the album. Rest assured there's no Halestorm, Dark New Day, or Nickelback influence here. That would just be too cheesy (and as someone already mentioned, it's been tried unsuccessfully in "Dirty Girl" - lol). I was referring more to just how nasty some of the grooves and riffs sound. Trust me, you will not be able to resist headbanging... think "Farther than the Sun" for example.
Good to have the distinction (granted, I actually kind of like DG despite the cheesiness). I for one figured you were talking more about the sound than the themes, though I can understand the possibility of confusion.
On a separate note, I'll be curious to hear how Myles sounds on the album. Some of the descriptions, particularly the repeated allusion to tenderness in parts, give me hope that he put some real feeling into the songs. I know that what little has been said about his vocals on TLH has suggested he doesn't have his old ODR days grit, but I feel like some are quick to equate that to him sounding like Slash Myles. I feel like any acoustic performance (not w/ slash) of his in the last few years is enough to prove that he doesn't need to have roughness in his voice to make it felt emotionally.
