SKID ROW REVIEWS/PICS

1989 for me was a great year musically. Not only was I recording in my first band, but spent some time in England attending school and saw many a great concert, met a lot of great people, and lived life. I was able to see a young band from NJ play at Wembley Arena opening for MOTLEY CRUE and also saw them headline the Sold Out Hammersmith Odeon where they were joined by LEMMY (MOTORHEAD) to play Train Kept A Rollin as well as being joined on stage by STEVE HARRIS (IRON MAIDEN) to play Wrathchild. Yes, I am speaking of SKID ROW!

Tonight, as bassist RACHEL BOLAN put it from the stage, it was an honor to be playing with ALICE COOPER. Aside from only playing 2 songs from their sophomore album, and their RAMONES cover of Psychotherapy, the rest of the songs were from their debut. I do believe that record made a statement for the band and the songs hold true today. And after the first song, Slave To The Grind, from the photo pit I motioned to DAVE SABO (guitars) that they made a good choice with new singer ZP THEART as he carries himself well on stage and his vocal chords are still in tip top shape and can hit those high notes as needed. Not to mention, the vocalists after BAZ were not up to snuff in my eyes. The band itself was thankful for their fans, the memories, and those who challenged the 100 degree weather to catch their early set.

ALICE COOPER – LIVE REVIEW/PICS

It’s a Friday night in Lincoln, CA just outside of Sacramento at the Thunder Valley Casino. Even as the sun goes down, it’s 100 degrees as the legendary ALICE COOPER hits the stage. July 28th will see the release of his newest album, Paranormal coming through earMusic. And I must bring up something that Eddie Trunk mentioned on his Podcast recently with Alice. Eddie mentioned that Alice can still deliver the goods and I absolutely 100% agree. Some bands, like KISS, struggle to do the live thing and don’t get me wrong, Kiss is the reason I love music so much, but it’s safe to say that the party is over and hearing about it in rough format is a tough pill to swallow which is why I refused to see them in the last 15 years. And also why I refused to see the MOTLEY CRUE farewell tour because listening to pre-recorded tracks and VINCE NEIL not singing half the lyrics is not worth the price of admission.

But getting back to Alice, opening with Brutal Planet and then heading into classics like Under My Wheels and No More Mr. Nice Guy is a great opening. And the thing that really brings this all to life is the 3-guitar attack, solid bass playing, and Glen Sobel on drums laying a groove yet displaying a flair for Alice’s stage show. And Alice’s voice, while not of operatic standards, is still the same. I had the honor of seeing Alice in ’89 twice in England. Once at the Marquee Club and once at Wembley Arena and it’s just as fresh today as it was back then. The hits, the nostalgia, it’s all here with I Love The Dead, The Ballad Of Dwight Fry, Cold Ethyl, and Only Women Bleed. What we need to all do is take that extra step and start buying albums again by true artists to give rock a little more longevity.

POWERFLO – The Viper Room… A POWERHOUSE Live Debut

SMNnews.com Powerflo Interview: Viper Room Hollywood, Ca

Viper Room, Hollywood Ca June 15, 2017
They say lighting rarely strikes the same place twice… For me, it has… I have witnessed the beginning of something special… again. This is no flash in the pants, one and done all-star super group (I know because when I interviewed Sen and the boys & they told me!)… This is the release of Powerflo, the super group consisting of Sen Dog (Cypress Hill), Christian (Fear Factory), Billy (Biohazard), Roy (downset), and rounding things up, Fernando (Worst). Although this is 2017, these guys took the stage hostage like it was the Hollywood music scene of the late 90’s. Its fair to say they have been chomping at the bit to get on stage, because they exploded with the energy of bands trying to make it, for the first time… Not resting on their past successes, there are plenty… They are working hard and heavy to become a force TODAY.
The songs on their upcoming NEW DAMAGE RECORDS debut release were recreated with the energy that one would expect from metal heavies and hip hop (rock) superstars… Did I just go there? I’ve listened to the album 4x and each time I discover even more to sink my teeth into… Not a filler to be found, all these songs were put to wax (yes WAX!!!) to shake the music world.
The band killed it with Resistance, Start a War, Finish the Game, Up & Out, Crushing That (Gang vocals peoples!!!), to name a just a few… For it was 50+ minutes of the epitome of beastmode, so I don’t recall all the tracks.
BTW, that first lightning strike… It was only LA’s own System of a Down… I was there watching Rick Rubin laugh, smile, and bounce his head to what the rest of the world would discover in ’98. So, I consider myself fortunate to once again cover something at the beginning that will soon be world wide… Spread the Flo, the POWERFLO…

Until I get the interview up… ciao4now

THE HARDROCKCORE

Stand Up and Shout 3rd Annual Ride for Ronnie

Sunday May 7, 2017  in normally sunny SoCal was anything but!! Thunder & lightning, hail, rain, wind, and even snow, bookended an otherwise amazing day of thundering horsepower, shining chrome, leather, rock n roll, and of course cancer awareness.

For the 3rd year now, Wendy Dio and all those who knew and loved Ronnie James Dio, gathered some of the most well known rockers & actors from the past 30 years, to bring awareness to the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout (SUAS) Cancer Fund. The event/ride began at the Glendale Harley Davison Shop and continued, by police escort to Los Encino?s Park in Encino.

Some of the faces that rode in by either 2 wheels or more, were the likes of Lita Ford, Eddie Money, Rough Cutt, past and present members of DIO, including Simon Wright, Craig Goldy, Scott Warren, Jeff Pilson, Lynch Mob, Adler?s All Stars, and crowd favorites ?members? of the Sons of Anarchy, amongst many others.

On a personal note? High School Bucket List? Eddie Money CHECK!!! It was a family affair being back by his sons and daughter. Money played his hits and even had his son do an original

Wendy was so polite and willing to take pictures with anyone and will talk about her team of cancer beaters.

During the concert on the lawn, Eddie Trunk MC?d and hosted a number of silent auctions, which included a jacket that Eddie Money wore on tour, a guitar signed by current, late and past members of Great White.

Wendy Dio is a co-founded the Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund it begun after the death of Ronnie in 2010, from stomach cancer. Education, research, and prevention are the primary goals of the organization.

I was fortunate enough to do the bowling event last year and look forward to attending and bringing attention to this worth while cause in the future? It?s worth the price of admission? Seeing all these great acts in one small space, doesn?t happen every day? Kill Cancer Y?All!!!

ARCADEA (MASTODON, ZRUDA, WITHERED) SIGN WITH RELAPSE RECORDS;

ARCADEA (MASTODON, ZRUDA, WITHERED) SIGN WITH RELAPSE RECORDS;

NEW ALBUM OUT JUNE 16TH

April 19, 2017
? Los Angeles, CA – Hailing from the fringes of the cosmos, Arcadea, will make their arrival known in 2017 with a debut, self-titled album due out on June 16th. Today, the synth/psych band has announced they have inked a deal with Relapse Records to release the record. Pre-orders and new music will be announced in the coming weeks.
Stream Arcadea?s previously released song ?Gas Giant? now at https://youtu.be/Y36PqRQ3Jc0.
Arcadea was born when drummer-vocalist Brann Dailor (Mastodon) teamed up with upside-down guitarist & keyboardist Core Atoms (Zruda) to create a synth-laden progressive, heavy psych band. Adding guitarist Raheem Amlani (Withered) on synth, the three recorded their visionary,10 song synth odyssey at Orange Peel Studios in Atlanta, GA. The self-titled debut record will see its release via Relapse Records this June.
Unlike their other bands, Arcadea uses only keyboards in a unique blend of crushing, organic drums and psychedelic synthesizers. The music is at once electronic but not electronica, synthetic but not processed, heavy but not metal.
The album envisions a future 5 billion years from now, where the impending collision of galaxies creates a new order of planets. Where cold, distant moons pledge alliance to new suns and expanding gas giants implode into black holes. Ancient drones, forever adrift, record toxic tales of love between dying stars. Where lifeforms in suspended animation, dream among the ice rings of Saturn and cosmic war wages among gods and planets. It is in this universe that Arcadea reign supreme as the last surviving space wizards since the final extinction.

SUPERJOINT will be touring in support of their Caught Up In The Gears Of Application full-length.  The record, which Loudwire crowned, a raw exercise in riffing devastation and swirling, erratic tempo shifts,” is SUPERJOINT‘s first proper studio offering in over a decade. Recorded at the famed Nodferatu’s Lair, produced by SUPERJOINT co-founder Philip H. Anselmo (Down, Pantera, Scour, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Arson Anthem etc.) and Stephen Berrigan (Down, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Eyehategod, Haarp, Classhole, etc.), and mastered by Scott Hull (Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Pig Destroyer) at Visceral Sounds, the thirty-eight-minute bruiser spews forth an unapologetic crossover of hardcore punk, metal, and uncompromising, antagonistic, New Orleans-style angst.
Various order bundles, including limited edition vinyl options and authentic woodwork from their “Caught Up In The Gears Of Application” video are available via Housecore at THIS LOCATION. For digital orders, point your browser HERE where you can also stream the record in full.
SUPERJOINT was resurrected in 2015 after the original band broke up a decade earlier. At the behest of the late Corey Mitchell, co-founder of The Housecore Horror Film Festival, SUPERJOINT founders Anselmo, Jimmy Bower (Down, Eyehategod), and Kevin Bond (Christ Inversion, Artimus Pyledriver et al) joined forces with longtime comrades, drummer José “Blue” Gonzalez (Warbeast, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals), and bassist Stephen Taylor (Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Woven Hand, 16 Horse Power). A new era of the band was born. After just two tours, new material followed culminating in the scathing sounds of Caught Up In The Gears Of Application.
 “[Philip H. Anselmo’s] tenacity seems undeniable, and that spirit shines through Caught Up In The Gears Of Application from beginning to end.” – Blabbermouth
 “SUPERJOINT are looking to add a vicious and philosophical third chapter to the band’s legacy.” – Loudwire
“…a great mix of southern rock and hardcore punk… if Down ever got really angry and decided to knock out a punk record, this is what I imagine it would sound like.” – Metal Injection on the title track
 
“This is gnarly and nasty… the music is as potent as ever. A storming return. – The Sludgelord
 
SUPERJOINT‘s music is like a poison that you want to keep drinking, a spirit that doesn’t age, and never heals – but it’ll kill time. There is creative genius in these guys.” – New Noise Magazine
 “The volatile, acidic savagery that the band is known for is just as present now as it was before they went on hiatus over a decade ago….” – Metal Nexus

MEATWOUND: Decibel Magazine Now Playing “Reproductive Blues” From Magic Bullet-Bound Largo LP

MEATWOUND: Decibel Magazine Now Playing “Reproductive Blues” From Magic Bullet-Bound Largo LP

As MEATWOUND preps their infectious/infected second LP, Largo, for release through Magic Bullet Records in the coming weeks, Decibel Magazine has championed the new album with a stream of its gnarled “Reproductive Blues.”

 Of these “Reproductive Blues,” MEATWOUND Daniel Shook offers, “Fundamentalists and politicians don’t like abortions. They also don’t like birth control or sex education. If you honestly want to stop abortions, those things are proven to reduce abortions more effectively than prayer or highway billboards. It’s almost like they want to keep the world stepping over endless unwanted babies. Round about twenty-three years ago, Initial State made an LP and the song ‘Feast’ has stuck with me ever since. The first line: ‘You would bring another into the vile machine/One more mouth among the billions to hang agape in need’… I think it was the first song I heard that was specifically about overpopulation.”

 Decibel’s intel on Largo includes, “while the record is filthy enough to give you cholera, it’s a fuckfest of bass-powered noiserock and feedback-as-riffage. Something like Coalesce covering Daughters, or maybe it’s the other way around, but not even that really gets at the guts of this stuff.” The report issues that “Reproduction Blues” is, “as blunt and addictive as the remaining six tracks on the album, a bath-salted cruise through some rhythmic, unforgiving wasteland.”

 Allow MEATWOUND to sterilize your “Reproductive Blues” at THIS LOCATION.

 Stream Largo‘s lead track “Séance” at No Clean Singing HERE.

 Largo will be issued through Magic Bullet Records on purple vinyl LP and digital platforms on May 12th; Preorders are available HERE and HERE. Additional audio samples and a video for the album’s “Pigs” will be issued shortly.

 Largo is the second LP offering from MEATWOUND, the outfit’s depraved cast comprised of punk/hardcore scene veterans collectively hailing from the likes of Combatwoundedveteran, Holy Mountain, Headless Dogs, Primate Research, and others. After a successful run in support of their critically-acclaimed Addio debut, the band delivers seven new songs of ungodly sonic devastation with Largo. While a lot of the scuzzy, surging groove of the debut album can be found, the band has pressed down on the accelerator a bit, resulting in faster and more violent-sounding results this time around. The aural attack has once again been captured by Dan Byers at Rock Garden Studio, just south of Largo, with mastering by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound. As with the debut, the visuals have once again been executed by former Florida Man Chris Norris, aka Steak Mtn.

MEATWOUND Live:

FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY ANNOUNCE HEADLINING TOUR TOMBS + MOON TOOTH TO SUPPORT THE GREAT COLLAPSE OUT NOW

FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY ANNOUNCE HEADLINING TOUR
TOMBS + MOON TOOTH TO SUPPORT
THE GREAT COLLAPSE OUT NOW

Photo: Bobby Bates

April 18, 2017 — FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY have announced The Great Collapse North American tour in continued support of their new LP of the same name. Support will come from TOMBS andMOON TOOTH. Dates kick off in early June and stretch through the first week in July. Tickets will go on sale Friday 4/21.

“We’re happy to announce The Great Collapse North American tour,” says vocalist Joe Badolato. “Tombs and Moon Tooth are sick live bands, and make for a fun mixed bill.  A little different than our normal touring partners, but we’re excited to play for some new fans.  Lots of new songs on this one, and a few old ones we haven’t pulled out in years.”

Fit For An Autopsy released The Great Collapse on March 17, 2017 via Entertainment One (eOne) / Good Fight Music in North America and SPV overseas. Initial sales of the album landed the band on a variety of Billboard charts, some of which the first time in the band’s career.The Great Collapse debuted at #6 Hard Music, #9 Indie, #16 Rock and #47 Current Top 200.

Artist Adam Burke was tapped to create the visually stunning cover art seen below.

The Great Collapse is the the band’s fourth full length record, continuing the momentum gained from a solid 200+ days of worldwide touring backing the buzz-worthy release of Absolute Hope Absolute Hell in late 2015, as well The Depression Sessions, a split release with The Acacia Strain and Thy Art Is Murder in 2016.

The crushing music of Fit For An Autopsy is for any fan of extreme metal, as it?s devoid of preachy politics or grandstanding soapboxing, but its sound and fury is absolutely unflinching in purpose. The band expertly blends excessive-force fueled death metal with atmospheric groove and impassioned personal diatribes, reflecting back the dark state of current events. Their fourth album, The Great Collapse, doesn?t waste time with fantasy bullshit or cliché gore horror. Fit For An Autopsy are metal guys, to be certain, but they grew up in the hardcore scene. They embrace the responsibility to put as much devoted purpose into their lyrics and message as they do into their dense, heady, songs, forging a magnificently powerful new post-deathcore.

ARCADEA Sign With Relapse Records

ARCADEA Sign With Relapse Records

 

Hailing from the fringes of the cosmos, Arcadea, will make their arrival known in 2017 with a debut, self-titled album due out on June 16th. Today, the synth/psych band has announced they have inked a deal with Relapse Records to release the record. Pre-orders and new music will be announced in the coming weeks.

 

Arcadea Album Art

Stream Arcadea?s previously released song ?Gas Giant? now at https://youtu.be/Y36PqRQ3Jc0.

Arcadea was born when drummer-vocalist Brann Dailor (Mastodon) teamed up with upside-down guitarist & keyboardist Core Atoms (Zruda) to create a synth-laden progressive, heavy psych band. Adding guitarist Raheem Amlani (Withered) on synth, the three recorded their visionary,10 song synth odyssey at Orange Peel Studios in Atlanta, GA. The self-titled debut record will see its release via Relapse Records this June.

Unlike their other bands, Arcadea uses only keyboards in a unique blend of crushing, organic drums and psychedelic synthesizers. The music is at once electronic but not electronica, synthetic but not processed, heavy but not metal.

The album envisions a future 5 billion years from now, where the impending collision of galaxies creates a new order of planets. Where cold, distant moons pledge alliance to new suns and expanding gas giants implode into black holes. Ancient drones, forever adrift, record toxic tales of love between dying stars. Where lifeforms in suspended animation, dream among the ice rings of Saturn and cosmic war wages among gods and planets. It is in this universe that Arcadea reign supreme as the last surviving space wizards since the final extinction.

Hyper Groove Brutality From Japanese Death Metal Legion; Record To Drop This Friday Via Unique Leader

    

Hyper Groove Brutality, the imminent new full-length from long-running Japanese brutal death metal maniacs VOMIT REMNANTS, will make its official decent upon the masses Friday, April 21st via Unique Leader Records.

The band’s first studio output in twelve years was produced by Darren Cesca (Arsis, Vile, Goratory) of House Of Grind Studios and features guest appearances by vocalist Henrik Cranz of Soils Of Fate, guitarist Craig Peters of Deeds Of Flesh and Destroying The Devoid, and guitarist Paul Masvidal of Cynic/ex-Death.

In advance of its release, today Decibel Magazine is streaming the record in its crushing entirety hailing its, “flattening riffs, machinelike drumming, and fearsome guttural vocals.”

Get pulverized by Hyper Groove Brutality, courtesy of Decibel Magazine, atTHIS LOCATION.
Hyper Groove Brutality preorder bundles are currently available HERE. For digital orders, visit the Unique Leader Bandcamp page at THIS LOCATION.
 Metal Injection calls Hyper Groove Brutality a, “beast of an album,” while Wonderbox Metal notes, If you like slamming death metal with a brutal, Dying Fetus-styled edge to it then Hyper Groove Brutality is sure to sate your bloodlust.” Dead Rhetoric concurs, “album title as it may, the grooves had better deliver, and you better believe they stand up to the high stakes of the claim over repeated listens.” Adds The Grim Tower, “If you’re looking for the very definition of slimy, goopy gore metal then you’re going to find it here…. It simply fucking rips.”

 VOMIT REMNANTS was forged in 1997. The band’s debut demo, the charmingly titled In The Name Of Vomit, reaped critical acclaim among the death metal underground. Second demo, Brutally Violated, was unleashed the following year and one unreleased track made its way to the Gore Is Your Master compilation released by Razorback Records. VOMIT REMNANTS released their debut full-length, Supreme Entity via Macabre Mementos in May of 1999 and were later invited to play The Ohio Death Fest alongside Dying Fetus, Internal Bleeding, Dehumanized, Devourment, Gorgasm, and many others only further solidifying VOMIT REMNANTS as a proverbial force with which to be reckoned.

 Following various lineup shifts, VOMIT REMNANTS brought their sonic brutality to European stages appearing at Obscene Extreme Fest and Nuclear Storm as well as performing shows in Germany, Holland, Belgium, and Austria. By 2000, the band returned to American soil for a short run of dates with Brodequin before releasing their Indefensible Vehemence EP on Supreme Musick and Macabre Mementos Records that same year.

 Due to internal conflicts, VOMIT REMNANTS disbanded shortly after their American tour. Drummer Keisuke spent the next two-and-a-half years searching for replacement musicians. Guitarist Steve Eagle, bassist Duane Cowan, and vocalist Takanori Fujioka eventually joined the band in 2004 and recorded a two-song promo. They also played the Maryland Deathfest that same year as well as many shows in Japan. Eagle and Cowan would flee VOMIT REMNANTS just one year later however before being replaced by guitarist Kei Ishida and bassist Mitchito Hoshi. With this new lineup the band recorded a three-song promo to shop to labels. Those three tracks would make their way to a three-way split CD with Godless Truth and Carnivorous released by Lacerated Enemy Records. The band later returned to Europe for a tour with Godless Truth. Macabre Mementos Records released VOMIT REMNANTSSupreme Vehemence Discography ’05 which included bonus live footage before joining forces with Unique Leader Records. The band split up again however while recording new songs. The band returned in 2015 stronger than ever and penned the maniacal Hyper Groove Brutality full-length. The wait is finally over.

SOILWORK Officially Announces 25-Year-Old Bastian Thusgaard as Permanent Drummer

For Immediate Release

April 19, 2017

 SOILWORK Officially Announces 25-Year-Old Bastian Thusgaard as Permanent Drummer
 
Witness Bastian Thusgaard’s Permanent Debut at International 2017 Spring/Summer Festivals including Download Paris, Hellfest, Tuska Open Air, Wacken Open Air and More

                                                                                            Photo credit: Marc Duvollet

Visionary Swedish musicians SOILWORK are pleased to officially announce the inclusion of their now permanent drummer, 25-year-old Bastian Thusgaard. Thusgaard has been blazing the kit for the band for the past 10 months, but will make his official debut as a permanent member of the band at their upcoming summer festival performances. See below for a full listing of dates.
 Bastian Thusgaard originally joined the SOILWORK machine as their touring drummer after former full-time drummer Dirk Verbeuren’s departure. Thusgaard began his journey as Verbeuren’s understudy, eventually taking over touring duties for the band full-time in the summer of 2016.
 Watch a video of Thusgaard deftly performing “The Chainheart Machine” with SOILWORK via a Sick Drummer Magazine video here: https://youtu.be/fiYSuQAD50w
 In a band statement, SOILWORK says: “We are super stoked to announce Bastian Thusgaard as our permanent drummer. He’s been touring with us for quite a while and has been nothing short of amazing to work with, both on a musical level and on a personal level. Taking over after Dirk must have been pretty hard, but he has proven, time and time again, through our tours through North America, South America and Europe, that he is the perfect man for the job. Bastian is only 25 years old and already possesses such great groove and fantastic technique. We can’t wait to see, how his ability will take us to the next level while we write our next album. It will be a beast, there’s no doubt about it. We have so much left to say musically and Bastian will be the perfect drummer, to help the band evolve on our constant musical journey. Give Bastian a warm welcome everyone!”
 Bastian Thusgaard adds: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Björn, Sven, David, Sylvain, Markus and everyone else involved in the SOILWORK team for their very warm welcome. I want to thank Dirk for his guidance, support and ability to inspire young drummers like myself, to put in the hours needed in order to make it to this level. He is the reason that I’ve had my life’s best musical experiences during these past ten months. To the fans that I’ve already met around the world and all the wonderful people surrounding me, thank you for your great support and positive feedback. It has truly been overwhelming.
 I am truly honoured to be given the opportunity to continuously work with SOILWORK, a band that I grew up listening to and one of the key elements of my musical education. I am 100% committed to SOILWORK and am looking forward to create music with my childhood heroes and to see what the future will bring. See you all on the road.”
 SOILWORK continue to strive toward excellence no matter the elements that are thrown at them. With several summer festivals quickly approaching and fall just around the corner, fans will surely witness this great new chapter of the band’s legacy.
 Confirmed SOILWORK Festival Dates:
May 21-22 Radio Rock Risteily Cruise from Helsinki to Tallinn
Jun 10  Brétigny-Sur-Orge, France @ Download FR
Jun 17  Clisson, France @ Hellfest
Jun 23  Gräfenhainichen, Germany @ With Full Force

Aug 05 Wacken, Germany @ Wacken Open Air

Nov 12 Oslo, Norway @ John Dee

Nov 14 Uppsala, Sweden @ Katalin     
 
Originally formed in 1995, SOILWORK have spent the last five years of their careers cementing their vast metal legacy. Most bands would be satisfied releasing one or two albums along with some touring, but not SOILWORK. Their passion for the craft has led them to release a single and double album, a rarities collection, an exclusive EP for Asia, a live DVD and to go on extensive world tours. Their relentless commitment to their fans is what separates them from the rest of the metal community and is the reason they still continue to flourish even after 20 years.
 
2015 saw the release of SOILWORK‘s tenth and most recent full-length studio album, The Ride Majestic. The album saw the addition of Markus Wibom’s (ex-Hearts Alive) as bass player and picked up where the band left off with their critically acclaimed double album The Living Infinite. The Ride Majestic charted internationally upon its release, hitting the Billboard Top 200 in the US, and is available now in CD, vinyl, or digital formats.

LOATHE’S NEW ALBUM, ‘THE COLD SUN,’ IS OUT TODAY ON SHARPTONE RECORDS

LOATHE?S NEW ALBUM, ?THE COLD SUN,? IS OUT ON SHARPTONE RECORDS

April 14, 2017 ? Los Angeles, CA – After much anticipation, Liverpool based experimental collective, LOATHE, has released their debut, full-length album, The Cold Sun, today on SharpTone Records. The album is available for purchase now at http://smarturl.it/thecoldsun.
In conjunction with today?s release, LOATHE has also premiered a brand new video for their song ?East of Eden,? which can be viewed now at https://youtu.be/_oupqTVdblI.
Talking about the new record?s debut, guitarist Erik Bickerstaffe says, “viewing the release of The Cold Sun is something that at one point seemed a lifetime away. Now that the time has come, we have never been more infatuated or enthusiastic about our collective effort before. We hope you thoroughly enjoy what we 5 have worked ever so tirelessly on.”
The Cold Sun is a concept record; a compelling 35 minute long meandering into the depths of a dark, post-apocalyptic tale. The record follows the adjacent timeline of two protagonists, who exist during a dystopian future, stricken by tragedy and the ever-looming apocalypse. The record was recorded at Glow In The Dark Studios in Atlanta, Georgia under the watchful eye of producer Matt McClellan (Underoath, The Devil Wears Prada, Being As An Ocean…).

Molehill Share Their New Single “Reverie”

Molehill Share Their New Single “Reverie”

HEAR IT NOW ON EXCLAIM!

NEW EP HEARTS ON FIRE OUT MAY 12TH // PRE-ORDER HERE

Progressive indie rock band Molehill from Chicago has released the second single from their upcoming EP Hearts on Fire. The track “Reverie” premiered with Exclaim! and is an electronic/organic hybrid that tells the story of losing someone, but being thankful for the influence they had on you.

The lyrics are about my father, who died when I was 6 years old,” says vocalist Peter Manhart. “Throughout my life, I have met many people who had stories about how great a man my dad was, how smart or funny or kind he was, how he helped so many people, or how he was this amazing piano player. However, to me, his legacy is more than just a story – ‘you left them a story to tell, but you made me the person I am’.

Sometimes a song comes together very quickly and other times, it requires a little more attention. The latter being the case with “Reverie” explains Manhart. “It started as a 3-chord bridge in one of Greg’s (keys/vocals) other ideas which I really dug and turned into its own song. After cycling through many treatments for the song, we finally settled on this organic/synth hybrid – which is a direction we find ourselves taking more and more.” The track combines elements of their 2015 EP Tin God like the more synth-heavy approach heard on the track “The Repeating” and a more sparse, organic arrangement in “Two Souls.”

Hearts on Fire will be released via all digital retailers on May 12th and is available for pre-order here. The band will be performing at this year’s Canadian Music Week on April 21st at Cherry Cola’s.

About Molehill:
Molehill had humble beginnings in small local venues in Champaign, IL, and has since grown into an established presence in the Chicago music scene. They have played over 300 shows between the Midwest and Eastern United States, including some of the more prestigious venues in Chicago, as well as national (and international) festivals like Summerfest, Musikfest, SXSW, and Canadian Music Week in Toronto. Molehill has built a reputation for explosive live shows and a tireless work ethic, as well as the work they?ve done towards fostering a more friendly and cooperative music community in the city of Chicago. They were one of the founding members of the Chicago Roots Collective, which was a 10-band collective working together to promote the Chicago music scene and their music, and for the last 2 years Molehill has curated a monthly email list to dozens of local bands to try to promote live music in Chicago and encourage local bands to attend shows, discover new bands, and support each other even more.

Peter Manhart, lead singer, lyricist, and guitar player, started playing piano at the age of 3. At the University of Illinois, he pursued a double major in engineering physics and piano pedagogy, but dropped the piano major after 2 years so that he could focus his practice time on the guitar. He went on to get his physics degree, but also took numerous creative writing and poetry classes to develop his lyric writing ability. After moving from Champaign to Chicago, Peter met bassist Trevor Jones, who was studying double bass at DePaul University. Trevor had spent a large portion of his life in various orchestras and has always had a penchant for well organized noise, whatever the genre. He also grew up watching his father, a music professor, manage and play in a 16-piece jazz big band. This instilled in Trevor a strong business and management sense, and helped him complement Peter not only musically but with the business aspect of the band as well. After Peter and Trevor started working together, drummer Devin Staples joined the group. Devin has been a fixture in the Chicago gospel scene for years, and had also been a member of two highly-respected Chicago bands, NYCO and Cassius Clay. The 4th and final piece of the puzzle, keyboard/synth player Greg Van Zuiden, joined soon after. Greg had recently graduated from Illinois Wesleyan University with a music degree, moved to Chicago, and was looking for a band to join. As the youngest member of Molehill, he was the light-hearted ?glue? that helped the band stay strong.

The Hearts on Fire EP continues the group?s tradition of storytelling in music. The dark, brooding ?Old Soldier? tells the story of a proud, religious, soldier, living out his last days in a nursing home – ?And he sits in a dead room, sterilizer and perfume, and the lights are slowly growing dim.? ?Reverie? has the narrator lamenting the loss of a parent long ago, while also thanking that parent, for ?you made me the person I am.? Last but not least, the title track was inspired by the ?Euromaidan? protests in Ukraine – the birthplace of Peter Manhart?s mother. The song is about the common people rising up to fight an oppressive regime. Though the people in this protest were unarmed, the government sent riot police and snipers to kill them, and yet the people?s numbers kept growing until they were finally heard. This song is about the strength of community, sheer willpower, and the resonance of a good and virtuous idea. Though the few in control may try to keep the will of the people down, the masses can change the world if they fight together. With the recent wave of public dissent and protests happening around the world, this seems like the appropriate time to share this song.

For Immediate Release:

(April 14, 2017 – Vercelli, Italy) – Alternative rock band Soldiers Of A Wrong War are streaming their upcoming sophomore release, Countdowns early. The 10-track album is set to release this coming Tuesday, April 18th and will be released on all digital music retailers, as well as their web-store.

“‘Countdowns’ is our second full length release since our first album which we dropped in 2011. I think that people will immediately feel that the sound of this album is more mature, we had the chance to grow, to experience some changes in our lives and we started to listen to many different types of music, having the chance to absorb something from every new artist we fell in love with. We mixed all of that with the Soldiers Of A Wrong War imprint creating something that we’re really proud of.” – Adin Sulic, bass

About SOAWW:

“We live, bleed and breathe for music: it’s more than words, melodies and notes mixed up together, music is our lifeblood, it is where we thrive!”

Soldiers Of A Wrong War formed in 2007. Since the very beginning the guys took seriously their musical interests and after a few months they started to write their own music. After almost a year the band began recording their material in studio, recording at first a three tracks EP in 2009 and then, on January 2011, their first full length album, “Lights & Karma”. Both of the releases were completely self funded.

From the new album are available two singles and music videos: “Save Me” and “Dreamers”. In 2014 the guys released a brand new EP, “Slow” and an official video for the song ‘Slow’ was released too. On June 2016 a new single, “We Will Never Fall”, was released as well as the accompanying visuals via New Noise Magazine. The song is the anticipation of the band’s 2nd studio album, which will be available in early 2017.

If you’re looking for some fresh and sharp rock music that will jump into your ears to conquer your brain, freeze it in a moment of pure pleasure and give it back to you safely refreshed, then Soldiers Of A Wrong War is exactly what you need!
