“When I wrote ‘Diamond’, I was trying to remain hopeful in a hopeless situation. I learned that the effort you put forth in those types of instances can cause serious damage to your soul and your mind. Sometimes when we feel lost we try to convince ourselves that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. ‘Diamond’ is about realizing that light doesn’t exist.” – SHARONE

Sharone erupted onto the Denver music scene as a solo artist in 2014 playing local DIY venues; since then she has gone on to play venues such as Marquis TheaterBluebird Theater, and Gothic Theater, playing festivals, and opening for bands such as One-Eyed-DollThe Birthday MassacreFuelSaving AbelDavey SuicideTantricHell’s BellesStitched Up Heart, and Puddle Of Mudd. The atmospheric and melodramatic music of Evanescence and the psychedelic blues of Black Sabbath inspired Sharone to start performing her music live with a full rock band backing her. Despite sustaining a dark and melancholy tone on recordings, the gothic artist’s live shows are nothing short of energetic, full of heavy piano riffs, pulsing rhythms, and enthralling theatrics. From emerging from a coffin to jumping off of monitors and captivating contortions, Sharone captures the interest of each audience member through her piercing stage chemistry with her live musicians, and her ever-growing theatrics. In the spring of 2017, the singer left her mark on the Denver music scene with the release of her first rock album ‘Storm’. Following the release, dove deeper into her writing, and came back stronger than ever with the reincarnation of her dark sound: ‘Enchiridion of Nightmares’ (2018).

“Like a series of dark fairy tales, Enchiridion of Nightmares the new album from dark [rocker] Sharone, captivates, seduces, and haunts. Each of its notes, let alone songs, comes with a shadow to [her] beauty, melancholy to [her] light, and intimacy to [her] grandeur with it all colluding in an adventure which just steals the imagination from everyday reality. There is a rich cinematic and theatre-esque feel to Enchiridion of Nightmares which equally adds to its captivation; indeed its songs entwine an influence of horror movies, vintage and modern, into their personal nightmares. With just as richly layered and dramatic sounds to its exploration, the album is a persistent unveiling of new twists and shadows listen by listen. On our first meeting intrigue soaked the pleasure, through a couple more captivation, each subsequent listen leading to the inescapable bewitchment these words spring from.” –The Ringmaster Review

Sharone followed up the release with three exhilarating summer and fall tours, reaching audiences across the western, central, and eastern United States, and spent the remainder of 2019 recording her third studio album ‘Reflection’, which was released December 7th, 2019.

“[Sharone] showed that she was adept at harnessing the chaos on her previous couple of albums and she’s really turning the gothic-art-pop-rock up on her latest long-player. It’s packed with dark fairytales and swooping riffs as well as more theatrical invention that you’d find at the Royal Shakespeare Company.” – The Crack Magazine

In summary absolute female power, which reminds of Evanescence and Tarja Turunen. This talented singer makes you curious about her live performances!” – Stormbringer.at

Sharone really pushes out the emotions and passion she has for music with this album. It is full of fantastic piano chords and guitar riffs that really show off her band’s talent as a whole. I am excited to see what she releases in the future and will keep an eye out for it. In the Spring of 2020, Sharone signed with Devil Inside Records, and began working on her fourth studio album. The first single “Can We Pretend” was released July 24th, and has been the young rocker’s most successful release to date.

This unique rock artist is destined for success in the metal and goth rock realm. Look out for more new music from Sharone coming very soon.

SMALL TOWN TITANS Release Official Music Video for “9 to 5”!

The Ride press photo 1

York, PA Heavy Rock Band SMALL TOWN TITANS have released the official music video for their single, “9 to 5.” Filmed by Nesmith Films and directed by the band’s own Ben Guiles, “9 to 5” is off of the recently released The Ride LP, available NOW via AntiFragile Music.

“‘9 to 5’ is the ultimate salute to the hard worker and how they deserve to enjoy the fruits of their labors once in a while. We all deserve to take a load off, and that’s what this song is all about.” – Phil Freeman

Player

Small Town Titans demonstrate that they are no mere one-dimensional bunch of heavies on the affecting power-mellow mid-tempo ‘9 To 5.’ The song is a genuinely touching number that’ll pull at the soul of everyone who works for a living and needs a little relief from the grind. The group has the collective gift of being able to make each word and note matter in a way that’s deeply personal and vulnerable.” – Rock & Blues Muse

Praise for The Ride:

“One-hundred percent killer with absolutely zero filler, The Ride is an incredible display of modern rock that builds on the active rock style of the past two decades and infuses it with a much needed rejuvenating shot that returns a raw sense of danger and primal excitement to the genre.” – SPILL MAGAZINE

“Overall, The Ride is a well-constructed album which caters for more than just the average rock fan. The culmination of songs over time isn’t usually the way bands compile an album, but in this case, it has worked to great effect. They’ve been patient, streamlining their best material for this release. All I can hope is that they achieve similar online success to what they received a few years back, so that they have something to build on once they can return to playing live.” – MMH Radio

“With a soft and soothing voice, Guiles’ guitar work matches the delicate melody of Freeman’s vocals on the final and title track ‘The Ride.’ A tempo change midway through breathes new life into the song, a soundtrack you could kickass to. Stabs of machine-gunning double kick drums hint at more skilful capabilities, before switching back to a slower end to the record and ending with the profound lyric, “ticking clock upon the shelf, and tallies on the wall.” Small Town Titans have their hands in numerous cookie jars, yet the cookies they pull out are made with their own unique recipes borrowed and mixed from others’, keeping The Ride fresh and ballsy. ” – *NOIZZE*

The Small Town Titans are an American rock n’ roll power trio from York, Pennsylvania, who love to constantly create, as well as play live. Gone is the notion that a rock band should only release 10 songs at a time every 2 years. In a world where music fans crave new content constantly, the Small Town Titans aim to deliver their brand of art all of the time, drawing inspiration from rock legends such as the Foo FightersAudioslave, and Deep Purple. Thanks to their efforts at taking matters into their own hands, STT can create and release songs, podcasts, live online concerts, and more with no rules. In a social media driven world, STT knows releasing quality, constant content for their fans is as important as playing great live shows.

The band was formed on May 4, 2011 at Lebanon Valley College, where Phil, Ben, and Jonny all met, and had finally decided to jam together towards the end of Phil’s senior year . Phil and Jonny had been close friends for years prior to the band’s first jam session, with Ben and Jonny also having known each other and staying in touch throughout school since freshman year. After playing together, it didn’t take long for the group to decide to start playing shows live locally. The name “Small Town Titans” had been in Phil’s back pocket for years, and he had finally found the band that fit the name. It didn’t take long for the group to grow a very loyal local fanbase, as they continued to hone their live performance chops, playing clubs on weekends and mixing their original material with covers of classic and modern rock songs. Soon after, the band began to take their career more seriously. They decided to hit the road full time, and began to release more material, and plenty of music videos.

In November of 2018, the band’s cover of the Christmas song “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” went viral in a matter of days, leading to charting on various Billboard charts including Holiday Digital Song SalesRock Digital Song SalesEmerging Artists, and reaching #5 on the Next Big Sound chart. The song also reached #2 on the iTunes Rock charts, only being surpassed by Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”. STT quickly found themselves achieving success, all on their own terms. That success continues into this decade with songs such as “The Man”, “Universal Limits” and “Rufflin’ Feathers” all landing on playlists such as Spotify’s Hard RockNew Metal Tracks, and Hot Road TripApple Music’s New in Rock, and YouTube Music’s Maximum Decibels.

As a newly signed act to AntiFragile Music, the band is releasing their first album with a record label, The Ride,. Under the tutelage of label owner and music industry veteran Tom Sarig (Nine Inch NailsBlink-182Sammy Hagar), the new album shows STT pushing into more musical directions than ever before, from the Queen inspired “Behind The Moon”, to the angsty and aggressive “When It All Comes Down”. “Rufflin’ Feathers” delivers a tongue-in-cheek message about today’s social media circus, while “9 To 5”, the album’s ballad, has more country crossover appeal than anything else in their catalog. “Sex and Candy”, a Marcy Playground cover, brings the blues, while “The Ride” title track showcases plenty of musicality, and an evolution to the band’s sound. There are plenty of big, loud hooks throughout, all the while without losing the edge of a rock n’ roll band who sounds just as good live as they do on their recordings.

With the help of AntiFragile Music, Small Town Titans have managed to find continued success by simply never forgetting one thing, their fans, both new and old. After asking their fans to vote on their fanbase name, they decided on calling themselves the Titan Army. As the Titan Army grows, so does the band right along with them. With a love for playing live, a Small Town Titans show has evolved into more than a concert. It’s an event, with plenty of stage banter in between songs, and no two shows ever being the same. The band simply hits the stage to deliver an energy driven show using guitars, drums, and their voices. Nothing more, nothing less. This approach to their live performances has led to them sharing the stage with acts such as Highly SuspectPapa RoachBlack Stone CherryPop Evil, and more.

SHARONE Releases Darkly Inspiring Music Video for “Fade Away”

SharoneFade Cover 3000x3000

Introducing an alternative spiritual element to the Halloween season, Dark Rock artist SHARONE has released the visually compelling official music video for her empyreal new single, “Fade Away.” Directed by Kyle Lamar at Digital Myle, “Fade Away” is the second track off of the enigmatic artist’s upcoming LP, Morbid Illusion, due out 5/28/2021 via Devil Inside Records.

Player

“Fade Away” is my empowerment anthem. It’s a reminder to myself and every other artist to never give up on our passion or vision. We doubt ourselves as artists all the time. I’ve been given every reason to quit music, but it flows through my veins, so you’ll never see me drown.

The music video shows a wounded warrior facing death after being tormented for a long time by an evil crow. She feels helpless and weak. Halfway through the video, a dark angel who has been watching over her, comes and leaves her a sword to reach for, along with a spell of strength. Towards the end of the video, the wounded warrior reaches for the sword, and is finally able to get back up and fight her battle.” – SHARONE

RIG TIME! Releases Bold, Gritty Cover of DRY KILL LOGIC’S “Pain”

4 RIG TIME Dry Kill Logic cover single art file

Wisconsin based Hardcore Metal Band RIG TIME! has released their cover of DRY KILL LOGIC’S “Pain,” off of the 2001 released LP The Darker Side of Nonsense. “Pain” was tracked by RIG TIME! at the studio located inside the legendary Warehouse concert venue in La Crosse, WI. Mixing and mastering was handled by Will Hirst at Gate Four Studios (MindforceRestraining Order) in Massachusetts.

Player

“Our cover of ‘Pain’ originated from being approached about contributing a nu metal cover song for an upcoming compilation. We tossed around a few ideas and decided on Dry Kill Logic. When I think of bands from the early “Nu metal days”, DKL always comes to mind with the utmost admiration. They were a band that had that killer “nu” groove but always felt like a more of a hardcore & 90’s metalcore vibe. We’ve always been known for being groove oriented and very heavy, so this song fit well. We stuck to the original formula but still made it ours. A little more dirty, grimy and noisy. Since we’re all in a moment where touring isn’t an option, this was a fun way to stay active as we prepare for our next original release to come out.” – Bryan (Vocalist\Drummer)

Click to Download / Stream “Pain” Online

1 RIG TIME Promo

“Limitless” is the conviction this La Crosse, WI outfit abides by. Deeply rooted in the DIY ethos, RIG TIME! is a viciously passionate and determined ensemble with a strong work ethic and a vital purpose. Forged in the fires of hardcore and sludge, embracing the groove of nu-metal and doom, RIG TIME! has performed in 39 states and Canada since 2015. The band has relentlessly toured across the US holding true to the idea of “All Ages Or Nothing” by performing at only all ages events and resonating their substantial live sound and stressing the message that live music is for all to share.

Vocalist/Drummer Bryan W. Fleming “…offers relentless rhythms with industrial precision as well as a smart beat changing sensibility” and Guitarist/Bassist Rebecca Fleming’s “…guitar is mean, saturated and dogmatically singular.” Outburn Magazine declared, also noting “…for fans of earlier, angrier Godflesh.”

New Noise Magazine said “Puncturing their blend of sludge and hardcore – with a tight embrace on powerviolence – the band kicks fast and dirgy tones, manifesting unbridled hatred.” and likened RIG TIME! to heavyweights Xibalba and Harm’s Way.

RIG TIME! executes a fierce live performance with precise and fearless transitions, always at astonishingly vulgar decibels. These two performers exhibit the force of a full band as they implement a complete Vocal/Guitar/Bass/Synth performance without backing tracks, never suppressing their magnitude of raw energy and emotion. The band is currently working on a follow up to the full length album “War” that was released on October 20, 2017 via Innerstrength Records.

RIG TIME! Live and in the studio is: Bryan W. Fleming – Vocals, Drums, Synths Rebecca Fleming – Guitar, bass, Atmosphere

Runescarred are a progressive metal and rock powerhouse who, since their inception on June 27, 2017, have made a tremendous name for themselves. Having released their critically acclaimed E.P., We Are, in conjunction with their single “Being God”, the quintet has garnered global praise. Features in Metal HammerLoudwireDecibel, and Power Play are only a few examples of their worldwide notice.

Runescarred has signed with TLG Entertainment for management and distribution, after TLG heard rough mixes for The Distant Infinite. Says TLG CEODenny Sanders, “After hearing the early mixes the band had sent to us we knew they were a band that fit our brand of ‘True Metal’.”

A powerhouse of a stage show, the band has already joined the stage with legends like Metal Church and contemporary peers like Holy Grail. With their debut EP having been a veritable tour de force, the upcoming full length – and accompanying performances – is poised to entertain and earn more praise from fans and critics alike.

With deep connections throughout the underground, and a passion for the road that has rarely been matched, Runescarred sit on the precipice of great things. Embracing the dark realities of humanity, Runescarred’s music continues to explore bleak fantasy worlds and the brokenness of the human condition. Fusing groove with bombast, riffs with sonic poetry and destructive growls with transcendent cleans, there is something mesmerizing and powerful about Runescarred. Just as likely to pull you into the pit as they are to bow a head in self reflection, it’s hard not to be impressed by this Texas metal legion.

Denver, CO based dark rock artist SHARONE has released the official lyric video for “Closer to Love,” the third single off of her upcoming LP, Reflection, due out December 7, 2019.

Player

“This is my favorite song off of Reflection. It starts slow but just keeps building, so give it a chance. It’s a love song, but not one of those mushy gushy love songs. It’s honest. It has a really fun and dancey chorus and it just makes me smile. I present to you, ‘Closer To Love’”. Enjoy! – Sharone

Channeling chaos into art, Sharone erupted onto the Denver music scene as a solo artist in 2014 playing local DIY venues; since then she has gone on to play venues such as Marquis TheaterBluebird Theater, and Gothic Theater, playing festivals, and opening for bands such as One-Eyed-DollThe Birthday MassacreFuelSaving AbelDavey SuicideTantricHell’s Belles, and Stitched Up Heart. The atmospheric and melodramatic music of Evanescence and the psychedelic blues of Black Sabbath inspired Sharone to start performing her music live, and to eventually release her 2017 demo album, Storm.

Despite sustaining a dark and nearly melancholy tone on recordings, the gothic artist’s live shows are nothing short of energetic, full of heavy piano riffs, pulsing rhythms, and enthralling theatrics. From emerging from a coffin to jumping off of monitors and captivating contortions, Sharone captures the interest of each audience member through her piercing stage chemistry with her live musicians, and her ever-growing theatrics.

In the spring of 2017, the singer left her mark on the Denver music scene with the release of her first rock album Storm. Following the release, underwent a complete lineup change in her band, and came back stronger than ever with the reincarnation of her dark sound: Enchiridion of Nightmares (2018).

“Like a series of dark fairy tales, Enchiridion of Nightmares the new album from dark [rocker] Sharone, captivates, seduces, and haunts. Each of its notes, let alone songs, comes with a shadow to [her] beauty, melancholy to [her] light, and intimacy to [her] grandeur with it all colluding in an adventure which just steals the imagination from everyday reality.

There is a rich cinematic and theatre-esque feel to Enchiridion of Nightmares which equally adds to its captivation; indeed its songs entwine an influence of horror movies, vintage and modern, into their personal nightmares. With just as richly layered and dramatic sounds to its exploration, the album is a persistent unveiling of new twists and shadows listen by listen. On our first meeting intrigue soaked the pleasure, through a couple more captivation, each subsequent listen leading to the inescapable bewitchment these words spring from.”
The Ringmaster Review

Sharone followed up the release with three exhilarating summer and fall tours, reaching audiences across the western, central, and eastern United States, and is currently working on her third studio album. This unique rock artist is destined for success in the metal and goth rock realm.

Sharone’s third studio album, ‘Reflection’, is due out December 7th, 2019.

Advance Praise for Voodoo

“Voodoo is riveting, powerful, at times relentless and full of so many layers. It’s thoroughly enjoyable.” – Moments In Sound

“All in all, “Voodoo” is an amazing album that proves Lullwater will be force to be reckoned with in the rock world.” – Metal Anarchy

Voodoo is Lullwater’s heaviest and most explosive work to date, shot through with blinding glimpses of clarity and searing moments of passion.” – The RockPit

“If you want rock ‘n’ roll with heart, look no further. Voodoo is a must have album for any music fan.” – Rock Documented

Lullwater Poster Nirvana Style 2

For more than a decade, alt rockers Lullwater have been blazing their way to the top of the industry thanks to their gritty, Southern-infused sound and straight-up, raw performances.

Formed in 2007 in Athens, GA, the foursome was born from the indelible mark that the godfathers of grunge left on music. The convergence of this inspiration, mixed with a healthy helping of swagger, defines this critically acclaimed alternative rock band.

The group released its debut, self-titled album in 2012 to solid reviews and were immediately invited to join some of the biggest tours that same year, as well as had the single “Albatross” featured on Sirius XM Octane Radio. Since that time, Lullwater has spent the majority of their career on the road sharing the stage with such A-list acts as CandleboxTheory of a DeadmanFlyleafPassafireAmarantheButcher Babies, and more. The band released their critically acclaimed sophomore album, Revival, in 2015, followed by a live EP, The Seattle Sessions, in 2017.

Voodoo, their latest effort and arguably their best work to date, was recorded at the end of 2017 in New Orleans at Marigny Studios by Swedish producer and engineer Jakob Herrmann, co-produced/engineered by Justin Davis, and mixed by Jakob Herrmann at top floor studios, is scheduled for a Winter 2018 release; this record promises an even bigger, more explosive sound that will shake you to your core.

Santa Cruz, CA – Progressive Pop-Rock Band WATCH ME BREATHE has released the live performance video for “Here and Now.” Shot and directed by Michael Jarrett at Siphon Media, “Here and Now” is the fourth single off of the band’s highly anticipated, new album, The Strange Pull Of What You Really Love, available NOW via The Label Group / INgrooves.

Player

“This is essentially step 2 in the adventure! This really has been a profound journey for me so far. We’ve wandered deep into unknown and uncharted territory. I didn’t know how this album would sound when I was writing each song, and it’s been really exciting and satisfying to see it come together as a cohesive portrait. I’m happy to say that I’m incredibly proud of what we’ve created and I can assure you there will much, much more to come in the future.” – Jake Aaron Ward

From the very beginning, Watch Me Breathe has been all about honesty and authenticity. Lead singer Jake Aaron Ward formed the band in 2017 purely out of frustration. “As a solo artist, I just got fed up with trying to write music only to please other people. Watch Me Breathe is really an experiment that says: what would I write if nobody else was listening?”

The results of that experiment have been surprising. In the short time since the release of their debut LP “The Lighter Side of Darkness” in February 2018, Watch Me Breathe has already accrued well over 150K views on YouTube and over 50K streams on Spotify…and the numbers keep growing.

When it comes to making albums, this particular band has an unusual process not unlike that of Tame Impala or Bon Iver: Ward (a proficient multi-instrumentalist) writes, performs, records, mixes, and masters every song entirely by himself, in his own California home studio. He jokingly explains “I just kind of suck at collaborating.” He cites an eclectic range of influences, including Peter GabrielThe PoliceImogen HeapGoo Goo Dolls, and a whole slew of underground progressive metal bands that have helped shape his unique guitar parts and complex rhythmic patterns. In concert, the band performs as a power trio, with Ward covering guitar and lead vocals, while bassist Ryan Green and drummer/baby brother Carl Ward handle the rhythm section.

Player

“Nobody in high school wants to be burdened with a relationship or any form of love. Everybody just wants to chew people up and spit them out like emotionless zombies. It’s bullshit. We couldn’t help but stab that idea right in the heart. That’s why the girl is dead. She represents what happens when we simply use others for their bodies and stop valuing real relationships and connections with each other.” – PUSHING VERONICA

The soaring vocals of front-man Josh Ross have drawn comparisons to Myles Kennedy and Chris Cornell. While the band is influenced by the likes of Mötley CrüeGuns ‘N Roses, and other legendary Hard Rock acts, the commanding presence of Black Heart Saints’ live show brandishes an updated take on the genre.

Quickly conquering some of the biggest stages and festivals in the United States, Black Heart Saints has built an impressive resume, and has been recognized as one of the nation’s top emerging rock acts:

– Austin Music Foundation Artist of the Month, 2017
– San Antonio’s Fiesta Oyster Bake Headliner

The band’s first full-length release –ALIVE– was soon followed by the “Road to Sturgis Tour 2017,” which put Black Heart Saints’ charismatic live performance to the test when the band took the stage at the world-renowned motorcycle rally, attended by over 500,000 bikers from all around the globe.

Foreshadowing a successful 2018, Black Heart Saints embarked on an extensive tour to the West Coast beginning in January, which included a highlight performance at the legendary Viper Room in West Hollywood, California.

“Sharing a part of your soul with another who leaches passion and life will undeniably cause one to change.

In the moment it’s easy to deny; to accept you are the problem. By doing this you are stifling the creative passion that makes you an individual leaving that leach standing in victory whilst you suffer internally. Isolation and solitude become your only solace.

THE SPIDER HOLE Releases Official Music Video for “The Leviathan Stomp”

TheSpiderHole square

Phoenix, AZ based Cinematic Alternative Rock band THE SPIDER HOLE has released the official music video for “The Leviathan Stomp,” the first video off of their hotly anticipated new LP with graphic novel, To the Monsters. Directed by Johnny Wilkerson and front-man Ethan Scott, “The Leviathan Stomp” was exclusively premiered on Dread Central.

Player

“The song ‘The Leviathan Stomp’ is about a wealthy, uptight family who keeps its monstrously deformed son chained up in the basement of their opulent mansion. Naturally, one day the son breaks loose. The “stomp” is him coming up the stairs. We didn’t have access to a mansion or a monster or a rich person, so for the video we just kind of cherry picked the themes of chaos, disease, and duality, and threw it all in a blender. Also, stairs. We found some stairs.” – The Spider Hole

A quartet with frequent guest musicians, The Spider Hole performs songs meant to stir brains and rattle bones. Based in sun-scorched Phoenix, AZ, the band started banging sounds together in the late nineties, and has steadily developed an aural stew that is partly rock, partly cabaret, partly blues, and partly goth. Influences include Tom Waits, Oingo Boingo, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Primus, The Pixies, Frank Zappa, The Doors, and your face when you taste something unexpected.

Athens, GA based alternative rock band LULLWATER has released the official music video for their single “Empty Chamber.” Originally premiered on Consequence Of Sound, “Empty Chamber” is off of the band’s upcoming LP, Voodoo, set to release 2/22/2019.

Player

“We all have experienced and been in a moment of excruciating emotional pain and ‘Empty Chamber’ was written during one of those moments. The song has an upbeat tempo and happy melodic vibe but the lyrics are depressing and filled with anxiety. Sometimes everything in life can be going great but you still struggle with emotional pain and confusion. I feel ‘Empty Chamber’ embodies that emotion.” – John Strickland

LullLogo-02

For more than a decade, alt rockers Lullwater have been blazing their way to the top of the industry thanks to their gritty, Southern-infused sound and straight-up, raw performances.

Formed in 2007 in Athens, GA, the foursome was born from the indelible mark that the godfathers of grunge left on music. The convergence of this inspiration, mixed with a healthy helping of swagger, defines this critically acclaimed alternative rock band.

The group released its debut, self-titled album in 2012 to solid reviews and were immediately invited to join some of the biggest tours that same year, as well as had the single “Albatross” featured on Sirius XM Octane Radio. Since that time, Lullwater has spent the majority of their career on the road sharing the stage with such A-list acts as Candlebox, Theory of a Deadman, Flyleaf, Passafire, Amaranthe, Butcher Babies, and more. The band released their critically acclaimed sophomore album, Revival, in 2015, followed by a live EP, The Seattle Sessions, in 2017.

Voodoo, their latest effort and arguably their best work to date, was recorded at the end of 2017 in New Orleans at Marigny Studios by Swedish producer and engineer Jakob Herrmann, co-produced/engineered by Justin Davis, and mixed by Jakob Herrmann at top floor studios, is scheduled for a Winter 2018 release; this record promises an even bigger, more explosive sound that will shake you to your core.

Player

“‘Diethanasia’ is the embodiment of the fury and fire that so powerfully defines Aftermath. In a darkened room with minimalist spotlights cast upon each member thrashing in a foggy soundstage, the quick cuts, muscular riffs, and furrowed brows by director Davo create an unrelenting visual experience, perfectly complimenting the frenetic energy of Aftermath.” – Metal Injection

ERA9 Releases Official Music Video for “Black Widow (Tick Tock)”

BAND1

Trap Rock Band ERA9 has released the official music video for “Black Widow (Tick Tock).” Directed by Jona Dhe Paganon, “Black Widow (Tick Tock)” is off of the band’s Gravity LP.

“We wanted to make heads turn with our DIY video production of our song Black Widow. The track is essentially about an unhealthy relationship, only we spiced it up a little by putting a dark Sweeney Todd vibe to the story. The cute, crazy & deranged barber-lady has a line up of men waiting to get their beards trimmed; one of the men in-line has a certain charisma that pulls them together. What she does with the men post beard trim, honours her title as cute, crazy & deranged. So prepare your teacups and press play on the video to find out :)” – ERA9

Player

“Era 9 emit masses of personality and diversity in their music, which makes them so appealing and unique to listen to. They hypnotize you and take you on a journey of diverse sounds and beats that cover every end of the spectrum. ‘Gravity‘ is an album of risks and self-discovery that focuses on the future of music; it’s a confusing mix of genres, but Era 9 somehow make it work.” – Broken Arrow Magazine

Track List:
1. Ammunition
2. Warrior

If there was a band in the world that breaks the barriers and labels that genres and the music industry place upon the listener’s and critic’s brains, Era9 takes a wrecking ball and destroys those barriers. They don’t discriminate toward any musical genre, but feel an attraction towards uniting them.

Drawing from the future rather than the past, ERA9 merge Rock, Hip-Hop and EDM to create their own unique sonic architecture, which they dub “TrapRock”

Due out November 7, Take it With You features Neil Campisano on drums, Zack Proteau on bass, and Brett Vaughn Rechtfertig on guitar while Katie sings and plays various instruments including piano, slide dobro guitar, and harmonica.

Player

“After focusing 20 years of my life on my music, it took the births of my two sons and associated sacrifices of motherhood testing my commitment for me to truly appreciate what that means. Some of these lyrics to the songs were typed into my phone at 3am while breastfeeding. With the support of my family, I was able to return as a solo act, and my attitude has completely changed. My love for music had been tested and I couldn’t be more grateful now for ANY time I get to play, especially after the pregnancy carpal tunnel healed. I started writing songs from a more natural state of just pure love and they come easily to me now. I’m no longer trying to prove myself because there’s only one me out there.” – Katie Knipp

SEASON OF GHOSTS Release New LP & Official Music Video for “A Leap Of Faith”

Season 20of 20Ghosts 202018 preview.jpeg

UK and Japan based Cinematic Electro-Metal band SEASON OF GHOSTS has released the official music video for the title track off of second full length album, A Leap Of Faith, which releases physical and digital copy 10/23/2018.

 Player

A Leap of Faith came to life, as the result of our collective experiences since the creation of ‘The Human Paradox’ and although one could say that four years is not such a long period of time, a lot has changed within and without, on every possible level. Every challenge, of course, is an opportunity in disguise, as well as a valuable lesson, so me and Sam attempted to put this into music and words. In a Leap of Faith, as well as everything I’ve ever worked on, every word has a purpose, every note, every meaning has been carefully selected with intent. We do not believe in fast fashion, fast art, therefore we create slowly, hoping that our songs will mean something to someone in the years to come. This album bears significant emotional weight for us who created it, existential intensity, but also it’s very pleasant to the ear, easy to listen, hopeful. We feel it conveys a straightforward, honest, loving message to those who’ll let it be their life soundtrack for an hour or so.

For the needs of A Leap of Faith, we combined our musical influences, spanning from Japanese visual kei, to American rock, to European metal, inviting our friends from all over the world to contribute with their unique musical style, Fatal FE (ex-Fail Emotions) from Russia, who was in charge for most keyboards, Masaki (This is a PEN) from Japan, who played piano on ‘You Are Not Your Pain’ and of course Mr Fusix who worked his magic on the mix and master. My good friend Intetsu from Japanese Visual Kei band, AYABIE, handled all photography and videos, the ethical, ethnopunk UK brand, Psylo, took care of our costumes and Sam along with Paul were in charge of art direction. Looking back, it’s so surprising that sometimes darkness can create something so harmonious, beautiful and full of light.

A Leap of Faith is not a concept album like the previous one, but undoubtedly it has a concept if one connects the dots. It emerged during a prolonged period of mental, emotional and physical drought, so it bears a certain level of rawness in its sound, its artistic concept, the photography, the aesthetics, which comes in contradiction to the more lavish atmosphere of ‘The Human Paradox’. I am in no way denouncing my beliefs or my style, I just happen to like lots of different things and everyone deserves variety, so this album has been tasked with the mission of conveying our message in a more laconic, no-frills -literally-, straightforward way, It’s a bittersweet memoir and a peculiar, daily life user manual for those who dare to listen closely. For me, A Leap of Faith is the music of the spirit, soul- nurturing, it means to offer insight and love, but you, the listener, can take whatever you need from it.” – Sophia (Vocalist and main song writer)

Sophia Aslanides – Vocals, song writing
Zombie Sam – Guitar
Paul Dark Brown – Bass
Max Buell – Drums

Season of Ghosts “is a spiritually ground breaking, intergalactic music project, dedicated to the love for the unseen and film soundtracks.” Released in 2014, the project’s official debut, “The Human Paradox”, came off as exactly that, serving up a brash mix of guitar riffs, harsh electronics, and compelling vocals through the eerie spectrum of a sci-fi, horror movie.

Season Of Ghosts was definitely something different from the norm that spoke of huge potential, and the fanbase that followed Sophia in the aftermath of her split from Japanese trance metal act Blood Stain Child grew, finding deeper roots as time moved forward, thanks to a handful of live shows and subsequent video clips that were circulated and shared via social media.

In 2017 Season Of Ghosts created a new, unapologetic, in-your-face album, A Leap Of Faith. Between the creation of The Human Paradox and the birth of the new album, Sophia spoke out about the health issues that prevented her from advancing and creating. Everything that transpired those past years, weaved the lyrical theme of the new songs.
“I spent years in depression, feeling helpless, lost, feeling captive,” Sophia explains of her full stop on making new music. “I stopped doing anything that once made me happy, including music.

Sam, Paul and Max had been trying to talk me into working for the new album for at least two years, but I couldn’t respond. Eventually, I understood I couldn’t procrastinate any longer and I asked Sam to start making some rough chord progressions that I’d work on later. Sam tends to be very concise about his compositions, so the core of the album sounds more solid. The main melodies, base keyboards, hooks and vocal lines were made by me, so you can tell there’s diversity because I’m a colourful character with many influences and I just can’t pick two to focus on.”

The Human Paradox was an experiment, born of Sophia’s desire to express her creativity and reveal herself to the fans who had affectionately been following her for years. It was also an opportunity to explore paths she’d always wanted to take but couldn’t due to having a lack of creative input in her former band. A Leap Of Faith is not only a continuation of Sophia’s tale, but a new chapter in the life of the band Season Of Ghosts.”An honest, in-your-face, loud statement, a reminder to ourselves that we’re still alive,” says Sophia. “It’s a piece of our soul, raw, the way the universe whispered it to us.”
The Human Paradox was as unconventional as the person who brought it from dream to reality, a reflection of the inner workings of Sophia’s mind. Thus, the album’s diversity and sometimes unexpected twists are a direct result of her having so many musical influences and her wanting to unleash them all simultaneously. A Leap Of Faith is more compact and defined in sound, certainly heavier and faster than its predecessor, and the strongest, most dynamic vocal showcase of Sophia’s career.

The trance / electronic elements of the Season Of Ghosts sound have, up to this point, been the elephant in the room. Many believe that once a metal band embraces electronics they cease to be metal, or have at the very least diluted their sound. A Leap Of Faith doesn’t shy away from the trance sound, which has become a Sophia trademark, but all the performances on the album are completely organic, including the keyboards. And the auto-tuning of Sophia’s voice that plagued her following her one and only album with Blood Stain Child is nowhere to be found. All the voices on A Leap Of Faith are 100% real and mixed up front on purpose. All performances are real, including keyboards that were done by Fatal Fe. He programmed some things, but several arpeggiators and keyboards were made piece by piece, constructed from zero.”

Sophia feels A Leap Of Faith has the feel of a traditional 4-piece band, a 5-piece if you add Fatal Fe’s invaluable input. There’s no question the Season Of Ghosts dynamic as presented on the The Human Paradox has changed 100%, and ultimately for the better.

Aftermath Release Official Lyric Video for “Smash Reset Control”

Aftermath Band Photo Tight 2

Chicago based Progressive Thrash Metal Band AFTERMATH has released the official lyric video for “Smash Reset Control,” off of their upcoming LP, There is Something Wrong.

“Smash Reset Control lyrically and musically captures the angst millions feel daily. The system isn’t there to protect them or make their lives better. It’s really there to protect those with the real power. Not the puppets in Congress or the WH. The ones behind the scenes. Time to reset the power structure. The point of this track and the record is to expose the real enemy.”
– Kyriakos “Charlie” Tsiolis

Player

 

Chicago’s favourite progressive thrash sons are back with new material and, on this evidence, those of you expecting the technically adept, progressively-minded Aftermath found on underground 90’s classic Eyes Of Tomorrow will be left wanting. Instead, on “Smash Reset Control” at least, Aftermath circa 2018 are back to being a crossover thrash colossus, thrashin’ hard and fast and forever adorned with a bug-eyed sneer! – WORSHIP METAL
