TNT (NORWAY) picture
TNT is a heavy metal band formed in Trondheim, Norway in 1982, by vocalist and rhythm guitarist Dag Ingebrigtsen , guitarist Ronni Lé Tekrø , bassist Steinar Eikum and drummer Morten "Diesel" Dahl. Not to be confused with the NWoBHM act from Kent, who formed in 1980.

They released their self-titled debut album the same year — their only album that features Norwegian lyrics — and got a hit with the single "Harley Davidson". In August 1983 Morty Black replaced Steinar Eikum on bass, and the following year American vocalist Tony Harnell became TNT's new frontman, making his debut on their album Knights of the New Thunder with the temporary stage name Tony Hansen. That line-up recorded one more album, Tell No Tales in 1987, before "Diesel" Dahl decided to quit one year later, after some turbulent times within the band. Tell No Tales - as

‘Encore’ was recorded during TNT’s headlining set at Frontiers Rock Festival in Milan on April 30, 2017 and is currently the final live footage of the band with singer Tony Harnell. Given that this is the third time he has left the band no-one can be really sure he won’t be back, to be fair, but TNT need him as although many may think that guitarist Ronni Le Tekrø is the one who really matters, and while he and drummer Diesel Dahl have been there since the very beginning back in 1982, it is Harnell who provides the class. His voice is amazing, and he is the one who lifts the band, as to be honest most of their numbers are fairly forgettable, but when he is fronting them then he takes them to a whole new level.

I’ve lost count of how many live albums Frontiers have released recently, but you have to admire the commercial nous which got them to set up a festival just for their bands and then record all of them. Here the sound levels and production are perfect, with the right levels and mix throughout. This time around it is the lack of great songs which lets down the band, but they have been in the business for the best part of 40 years, so maybe it’s just me. I don’t think I’ll ever be a fan of TNT, but Tony Harnell? Boy, that guy can sing.

When TNT promised the fans that the new album will have a lot of classic hooks that made them popular, it's a big relief since I was vastly disappointed with their two prior albums with Tony Mills. As I start the "Engine", opening track for their twelfth studio album (also the alternate album title for US release), I doubt their earlier statement as this track is still in a modern environment, non-80s downtuned hooks, and lack of strong melody. The second track, "Refugee", is getting better, TNT started to touch their classic territory, however the chorus is kinda flat, but overall a good track.

Ronni Le Tekrø, guitarist and mastermind of the band, did a fantastic job of twisting the album with multitude variety of songs that will make the listeners keep guessing, what type or style will they cranked up next. "Ship In The Night" is a smart combo of modern flavor, melodic rock, and mischievous solos. "Barracuda" is an aggressive rock with nifty chorus. "Don't Misunderstood Me" can be their 80s hit if it was released in "Intuition", but this one is a superior track which I think is the best here. "Someone Else" is pretty similar and another strong offering of the band. The title track is pure heavy metal beast with sensational riffs.

Despite those high-rank tracks, "A Farewell To Arms" still suffers with several fillers such as "Woman, Take It Like A Man", heavy track with Queen's flair but too average, "Come" and "Not Only Lonely" are totally disposable, and "Got Natt, Marie" is a good ballad but forgettable. At least, TNT's promise to resurrect their 80s glorious days is fulfilled, still many holes need to be filled, but a good reconstruction progress so far and much better compared to "Atlantis" and "The New Territory".

Honestly...I don't know what to say about this catastrophic album!TNT was one of the very important European metal bands in the mid 80's and 90's!It was one of the bands that made some serious waves in the hard rock and metal community ,because of 2 aces-first -one of the most amazing guitar players ever-the super guitarero RONNI LE TEKRO-a sensational guitar wizzard and second-TONY HARNELL -an American vocalist involved in some other successful projesct like WESTWORLD and STARBREAKER..a brilliant voice!TELL NO TALES was an amazing album that proved at it's time the tremendeous talent of this band-the instrumental track SAPHIRE is one hell of guitar demonstration wizardry-comparable to ERUPTION-VAN HALEN!INTUITION was a more commercial orientated album with an amazing production and some great and catchy compositions!!REALIZED FANTASIES was pretty good too ,but marked already the downing course of the band!After several uninspired album the big change in the band came-OUT TONY HARNELL and welcome an bord to TONY MILLS ex SHY -a very talented British vocalist-but without any spark of genius like HARNELL!This ATLANTIS album is a culmination of uninspired compositions and some of the most weak solos that LE TEKRO had made in his career!Unbelieveble weak album,none memorable song-a very bad diversity and overall an ensemble of mediocre compositions that risk to put a very big question mark regarding the future of this band!It seems MILLS was a loosing card-he really doesn't fit at all with TNT!!!I say all this words with disapointement and pain in my soul,because I was a huge fan of this band and I still cannot believe my ears how is it possible for a band with such a fantastic guitar player to edit such a weak album!Only the production is perfect...but that doesn't save a monument of boredom and lack of inspiration!Hardly 1.5 STARS!!!
