Generation Underground Announces New EP

New Jersey hard rock trio Generation Underground has just announced their upcoming EP, Kold Blooded Vol. 2. The EP was almost two years in the making due to some conflicts with the band’s previous manager and booking agent. The single, “Pass The Needle”, is available now on all major streaming platforms.

Thematically, “Pass The Needle” is all about moving on from bad situations. “ “Pass The Needle” was inspired by me watching some of my friends continuing to abuse drugs and believing that I needed to join them in order to write good music,” explains singer and guitarist Mike Florentine. “The song focuses on my journey to slowly rid myself of those toxic relationships and no longer associate with those people who were a bad influence in my life.

JEFFREY NOTHING Releases Official Music Video for “The Outage” Featuring Former Members of MUSHROOMHEAD & MOTOGRATER

 JEFFREY NOTHING, former vocalist of industrial metal band MUSHROOMHEAD, has released the official music video for his newest single, “The Outage.” Directed by Ian D. Sniesak and edited and shot by Jon Conner of A Hole in the Head Productions, with assisted videography by Thomas Church and Aj Taranto, the dark music saga features former members of MOTOGRATER and SKIN alongside the legendary front-man as well as former MUSHROOMHEAD guitarist, Thomas Church.

We all come with an expiration date. From our first breath, till our last, we are a miracle in motion; full of emotion, fears, and an air of invincibility. How we treat our fellow man and our life matters. Other than love, you sincerely can’t take it with you. Above is a place I pray to one day be, not a circle I put myself in as I traverse this lifetime. Freedom means everything. All complexes aside, we have no owners. Dream big and share your soul… I, for one, will be listening. So many trash their bodies and minds and feel they just get to wake up from whatever mistake they just made no matter what. It is so heartbreaking to watch a generation be wiped out because they truly believe they are invincible. We are not. Risking oneself for that ever-elusive first high destroys far more than the singular self. Parents never want to outlive their children. You are not that invincible person who will beat any challenge, just because. Stop for one second and be that miracle baby again. Not the almost adult who crushed everyone’s dreams, all because you wanted to escape a temporary nightmare. Death is the end, not a new beginning. Ever.” – Jeffrey Nothing

Life is full of hardships, challenges, tribulations… It can be difficult in the moments of pain to see through to the other side, that there’s a way to come out victorious. It can be easy to compromise or give in to something that offers a moment of relief; a temporary solution to a problem that might turn into a permanent consequence. It can be easy to think that you will remain in control but more often than not what we think we control ends up controlling us. Pain and trauma are the real gateway drugs and until we learn to face the pain and overcome we will continue the cycle of abuse, be it substance or other. If we don’t, addiction ends up being in control. It destroys what’s beautiful, and then dances and parades what remains around for all the world to see. It can be easy to become ensnared in the prisons of our mind. If we take a close look at ourselves in the midst of our addiction, it can seem as if we are suffocating, wrapped in the fake plastic of the lies we believe that have now led us to the predicament we are in.

Acknowledging there is a problem is the first step. Then we must fight, for our freedom and for our lives, one day at a time.” – Ian D Sniesak (Vocals)

With a superb production, this just doesn’t pop out of the speakers, it practically roars, the Highland passion in full flow and Celtic fire blazing.” – Metal Planet Magazine

Player

The long awaited album, which received critical acclaim from both media and fans alike, also hit number 1 in the UK rock album chart.

03 Mason HIll Mask Shot 1

To trace the Mason Hill story to its origin, Scott Taylor and James Bird met at school in Glasgow. At the age of 14, Bird was already an accomplished, award-winning, gifted guitar prodigy, who’d shared a stage with Ozzy Osbourne/Black Label Society man Zakk Wylde, a personal hero, toured across the UK, and secured endorsements from leading music brands. The teenage Taylor already harboured dreams of fronting a rock ’n’ roll band, and the pair’s friendship and shared aspirations led them to form a band. In 2013 the pair formed Mason Hill, adding drummer Craig McFetridge, bassist Matthew Ward, and guitarist Marc Montgomery in due course. Five diverse, colourful characters, the members of the group were instantly bonded by a shared, singular vision for their band: Taylor relinquished long-held plans to become an Olympic swimmer in order to focus on music, while Ward withdrew from a degree course at the University of Glasgow, where he’d been studying microbiology/virology. For these ambitious young men, Mason Hill was and is priority number one.

Mason Hill are Scott Taylor (Lead Vocals), James Bird (Lead Guitar), Marc Montgomery (Guitar), Matthew Ward (Bass) and Craig McFetridge (Drums)

THE STORY SO FAR
Mason Hill has spent their formative years “learning their craft” on stages up and down the UK. This included high profile shows supporting the likes of Graham Bonnet (Rainbow), Snakecharmer (feat. ex-Whitesnake, Thunder & Wishbone Ash members), Toseland, Marco Mendoza (Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy, Ted Nugent, The Dead Daisies) and Stone Broken.

“this is the best new heavy rock act currently performing in the UK.” (Fabrications HQ)

“a prodigious talent that belies their fledgling years.” (Planet Rock)

In December 2015 the band released their debut E.P, the self titled Mason Hill, featuring four tracks which highlighted exactly why this band are turning heads – outstanding songs that demonstrated a maturity far beyond their years. Recorded at The Foundry Music Lab with Sandy Jones (Wet Wet Wet) in the producer’s chair, the EP has been critically acclaimed amongst the music press and fans alike.

2016 brought several breakthroughs in the band’s career, firstly the invitation to perform on The Rising Stage at Ramblin’ Man Fair, headlined by Whitesnake and Black Stone Cherry, winning the UK wide Highway To Hell battle of the bands competition that earned them opening the main stage slot at Hard Rock Hell, alongside the likes of Ugly Kid JoeRatt, and Glenn Hughes, appearing at Winterstorm Festival, alongside the likes of Ricky WarwickLast in Line (ex-Dio) and Inglorious to selling out their first ever headline show at the famous Cathouse Rock Club in Glasgow with one month left to spare – a feat only achieved in recent times by Anthrax and Black Stone Cherry.

The career progression continued into early 2017 when the band was special guest to Inglorious in London at their sold out second album launch show, appeared triumphantly at Download on The Boardie Takeover Stage, opened for Airbourne at their sold out show in Edinburgh. and returned to their hometown for their second headline show at G2; again this sold out with demand so great that it was upgraded to the 750 capacity The Garage where the likes of MagnumTesla, and Symphony X have performed – packing the place to the rafters

The first promo video “’Now You See Me” was released in 2017, which to date has more than a quarter of a million views.

The year ended with support for GUN at Glasgow Barrowlands in December plus an appearance at Planet Rockstock:

“Fresh-faced Glasgow boys Mason Hill were nothing short of a triumph. Completely packing out the room, they served up a rock and roll storm from the offset with anthems like ‘Now You See Me’ before showing off another side of their art with powerful closer ‘Where I Belong’ that delved into rock ballad territory. In fact, the Planet Rockstock faithful were so won over we’ve been inundated with requests for Mason Hill to be bumped up the bill in 2018” (Planet Rock)

The band spent a lot of time developing material for their album and the first show of 2018 was at Glasgow’s King Tuts which sold out in three days, ten weeks in advance of show!

Ladies and gentlemen – Mason Hill are back with fire in their belly. This group of high achievers carry the pressure of early success but as they take to the stage to the intro tape, it is obvious they have class and confidence…” (Down The Front Media)

“There are few up and coming acts in Scotland that have made a notable impression as swiftly as Glasgow rockers Mason Hill. They have grown in popularity and garnered an insane following like nothing else” (SMS, Scotland)

“Mason Hill never disappoint, in fact they always take it to the next level every time you see them” (Jace Media)

This was followed by an appearance at TRNSMT on the same day as Queen, and Steelhouse Festival in Wales alongside such as Black Star Riders, Glenn Hughes and, Myles Kennedy.

The latter part of 2018 saw Mason Hill going out on tour supporting The Dan Reed Network at shows across the UK and a return to Planet Rockstock, by popular demand after their performance in 2017, this time on the main stage.

In a further development Mason Hill agreed to part ways with Frontiers Records.

A further sold out King Tuts show followed in 2019 and a sub headline slot at Planet Rock’s Winters End in February 2020. Since then live activity has been curtailed by the covid 19 pandemic, in common with every other band. However the band has not been idle and the focus has been on the debut album, recorded at Riverside Studios near Glasgow and vocals in New York, and mixed by Chris Sheldon (Foo FightersBiffy Clyro).

In 2020 the band signed a management contract with Jaba Music and a record deal with 7Hz Productions, and the album release date is planned for 5 March 2021. Three singles have so far been released to date from the album to critical acclaim.

2021 promises to be a big year for Mason Hill, despite on going restrictions.

Mason Hill are just getting started!

EMILY LAZAR (SEPTEMBER MOURNING) Leads the Way Launching Music and Animation NFT

IMG 9100

March 1, 2021 – Emily Lazar is the first female rock/ metal front person to create and launch a music and animation NFT (Non-fungible token), on Friday, March 5, 2021.

Emily created and leads September Mourning, a transmedia project spanning music, animation, graphic novels, video, costume design and more. Naturally, she wanted to expand the universe of September Mourning into NFTs, a new realm of creative possibility on the forefront of the digital landscape.

NFTs are unique, limited edition digital pieces of art that the creator signs & authenticates. You can own each one forever like you would a vinyl record or sell it as the NFT appreciates in value on an NFT exchange like Open Sea. The artist gets a residual portion of the sale so you are always supporting them both monetarily and promotionally. Think of the space as a collectible marketplace for the digital world.

Emily is dropping a limited edition of 2 different NFT’s on OpenSea, the largest NFT marketplace.

Emily’s NFT’s combine extreme animation and music from the single “Wake the Dead,” with one version giving a slight nod to the Bitcoin and Ethereum meme culture.

Emily has a very limited number of authentic pieces of her art for this launch, which you can view and purchase at https://opensea.io/collection/emily-lazar-september-mourning-the-soul-collection,

She’s excited that, together, her supporters and her can help make her art their own, as they share their newly acquired collectible and help spread her vision.

Screen Shot 2021-02-24 at 3.57.38 PM

Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda recently dropped a similar NFT and said:

“The [NFT] I posted will be (must be, by design) 1 of 1,” the musician said. “What you own: the file (art?) … I can’t upload that file again. You don’t own the ‘song’ or ‘master’ or ‘copyright,’ but you own the file. For example, if I write an original lyric on a piece of paper, I own that lyric. If you buy that piece of paper, you own that paper. And it is one-of-a-kind. In this case, you get a certificate of authenticity via blockchain that you are the sole owner.”

FAQs:

1. What are you launching?
I’m launching two NFTs:

A music/art one that speaks to my fans around the world, and a music/art/meme one which contains something special for the Bitcoin & crypto community.

NFTs are unique, limited edition digital pieces of art that the creator signs & authenticates. You can own each one forever like you would a vinyl record or as the NFT appreciates in value, if you would like, you can sell it to anyone, anywhere such as an NFT exchange like OpenSea…. Therefore profiting from the increase in value. The artist gets a residual portion of the sale so you are always supporting them both monetarily and promotionally. Think of the space as a collectible marketplace for the digital world.

2. What’s unique & visionary about yours?
Music and art feed my soul but as a touring musician stuck in a pandemic where there’s no touring, I need to find new ways to express myself and share my art with the world and possibly have it appreciate in value. NFT’s provide all of this.

3. What unmet need does your NFT meet?
This is a scarce asset and my first foray into a burgeoning new segment of the art world. I believe my art speaks uniquely to super fans, collectors, crypto traders and investors.

I’m deeply touched by the phenomenal prelaunch interest I’ve received from significant investors, whom I’ve been fortunate to connect with despite being in a pandemic.

FUSED BY DEFIANCE Release Official Music Video for “Cancel Culture”

cancel culture art work 2020

LA Based, 5 piece band FUSED BY DEFIANCE has released the official music video for their single, “Cancel Culture.” Originally premiered on GHOST CULT MAGAZINE, “Cancel Culture” was directed and edited by Ron Underwood.

player

“Cancel culture is a powerful weapon that when used appropriately, has the power to take down disgusting human-beings in less than 140 characters; something most court systems can’t manage to do in 140 days. But like a vigilante with no moral code or restraint, it can easily tip toward the dark-side. This song talks about the inappropriate usage of cancel culture. Metaphorically, a virus in the system; that searches through a person’s past and finds the one thing that may be able to bring them down as a petty response or knee jerk reaction to a human occasion. What cancel culture in this instance fails to take into account is the fallibility of humanity. Within this cycle is a tale of growth through experience which in current times are posted for public review. We are all human and all make mistakes, however only in the fallacy of stagnation does cancel culture become its own demise.” – FUSED BY DEFIANCE

SMALL TOWN TITANS’ Viral Bluesy, Hard Rock “You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch” Topping 2020 Christmas Playlists!

GrinchArtwork

York, PA heavy rock band Small Town Titans‘ incredible rendition of the classic “You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch” is fast becoming a Christmas standard! Showcasing the trio’s bluesy, heavy influence and front-man Phil Freeman’s phenomenal range, “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” went viral in a matter of days in November, 2018, leading to charting on various Billboard charts including Holiday Digital Song SalesRock Digital Song SalesEmerging Artists, while 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”. So, if you’re ready to throw off 2020 and get into the Christmas spirit, add this exceptional cover to your playlist!

“Our cover of this classic is a gift that keeps on giving for us and we’re grateful for an era where songs are easily available to be covered. It’s all thanks to Ben’s (guitar player) insistence on making more content and our manager Shil’s suggestion to do a version of a Christmas song. Every year we watch a spike happen in the number of people who discover who we are and what we do. We’re just happy if a few people find out about us, but for whatever reason it’s usually in the thousands, if not tens of thousands. It’s something we may never get used to.” – Phil Freeman

Player

“Move over, “Holly Jolly Christmas.” The holiday season has officially gone metal, and, believe it or not, it’s perfect.” – Billboard

“One listen to Small Town Titans’ version and you’ll hear that Phil Freeman’s deep baritone and delivery is a perfect fit to capture the spirit of the original. Freeman, who also plays bass for the band, teams with drummer Jonny Ross and guitarist Ben Guiles to put their own fresh take on the track, giving it a bluesy feel with a definite darker vibe. Take a listen as the guys cover it in the studio in the video above.” – Loudwire

“Ideal for fellow holiday “grinches” everywhere, this cover is the perfect seasonal concoction. Frontman Phil Freeman captures the film’s essence with greasy, yet defined vocals reminiscent of the Grinch himself. The rest of the band’s heavy influence makes their rendition of “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” a fitting choice for your not-so-traditional family festivities.” – Alternative Press

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 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

unnamed

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.

Birmingham, AL based , Hard Rock / Metal band BrokenRail has released the official music music video for their new single, “The Hate.” Written and recorded during the lockdowns, “The Hate” not only introduces an all new era of BrokenRail, but captures the raw emotion of being left behind in a world trapped with panic, chaos, unrest, uncertainty, and anxiety, reflecting the current state of the world facing lockdown, financial insecurity, social unrest, and the overall experience of living through a global pandemic. We must come together and accept our differences and find the common ground amongst us. United we are strong, divided we fall.

When writing ‘THE HATE’ we really wanted the song to not only showcase the abilities of each of our members, but to also reflect all of the negative emotion worldwide stemming from the virus and the lockdowns it caused. We feel between the song itself and the video we created we truly captured a snapshot of the current state of the world as COVID-19 helped fan the flames and fuel the fires of hate across our Earth. We hope you enjoy the new direction and we’re thrilled to bring you the new album later this year!” – Blake Clawson (Lead Vocalist)

BrokenRail signed a worldwide label deal late last year with LA based Cleopatra Records and spent January of 2020 in LA recording their first album with the label with longtime producer Joseph McQueen (As I Lay DyingBad WolvesUpon A Burning BodyLight The Torch) at Sparrow Sound.

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)

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.

Brocarde is music, Brocarde is fashion. Brocarde is a curious and vastly charismatic alliance of the two art forms. A woman of extremes and mystery who cannot be easily categorized but if you imagine the operatic voice and gothic hair of Kate Bush with the and drama of metal you get somewhere near.

She lives in the country, arrives in SoHo London like she could take down the city wearing the sartorial version of her own song with lyrics embroidered on the bodice. A black velvet dress in a heat wave. The velvet is exquisitely soft and silky. Velvet poetry. Her make up is perfect, bow lips, big eyes, unworldly lustrous lashes, her long and raven hair shines; she is both seductive and doll like. There will be a small range of dresses and jackets to accompany each song. Although Belgian haute couture designer Ann Demeulemeester once embroidered lyrics to Patti Smith songs on her shirts no song writer has ever expressed their lyrics into a fashion statement as well as a song. No artist has ever sung and embroidered the feelings in their heart on their very beautiful sleeve, or in this case, bodice. Limited edition jackets and dresses will sell for around 400.

It’s no surprise that Brocarde writes the detailed story line that will become the video for each song. The video seems the wrong word. These films are small gothic horror epics with confronting lyrics and arresting visuals. They are beyond powerful. They are epic.

“I see things visually and then I will write something. If someone walks through the door, gets whacked on the head with a shovel and falls into a pit I would wear what I was seeing.” She explains how her musical and visual senses are entwined.

Brocarde is comfortable being on her own and living off her own company for inspiration. -“People inspire me immensely but I feel I need solitude to make sense of everything.”

She comes over confident, like she could handle anything. But says “I’m emotionally driven, so it has to come from my heart, otherwise I get lost.”

“I have an awkwardness at having to mix and mingle yet I have a side of me that loves to get on stage and sing and perform. Maybe I find it easier to express myself indirectly. I am not open yet I write telling everyone how I am feeling.”

SWIM THE CURRENT Releases Official Music Video for “Red Desert”

Greg Antine

SWIM THE CURRENT has released the official music video for their new single, “Red Desert.” Recorded at GoreGrin Studios and Rival Sound Studios and the video filmed and directed by Second Sight Music Videos/Nightcast Productions, “Red Desert” is off of the band’s upcoming EP, Bright Lights, which is due out in early 2020.

Player

“’Red Desert’ is a song about relationships and their upward spin that sails the oceans of elated emotions. Yet, the song also shows conversely those relationships that have gone south can be gut-wrenching; filled with emotional torture as they spiral down and the effects surface the cutting edge of pain. Relationships both upward and downward are matters of the heart and ‘Red Desert’ tells them very well. The highs and the lows all come out in the song.” – Greg Antine (Guitar)

Greg Antine a

Swim the Current was formed by guitarist Greg Antine as a project to showcase music ideas that needed a place to come to life. Antine combines his notable rock guitar talent and pushes his own personal development with a vision. Soon, he decided he wanted to take what he was creating and bring together a few local vocalists and musicians as guests and set a goal of music that pulls from the solid hard/metal rock. Taking the course of his precision guitar sound, he has pushed it forward to meet today’s rock demands. The sound of Swim the Current is set to capture a unique and distinctive blend of heavy, dark, and emotional rock. Most would say that Deftones are a big inspiration behind the infectious sounding music that this artist portrays.

From San Diego to Portugal, Swim the Current will inspire, and perhaps one day, make the world more universally connected through music, space,and time.

Greg Antine has performed with (Disciples of VerityHengine and Madjul). Presently, along with his project, Swim the Current, he is a guitarist for the metal band Slave Revolt.

Multi-genre artist Justin ‡ Symbol has released the official music video for “Trash Fire (ft. VoKillz & Angel Nightmare)”. Directed & Shot by Ricky Rubinson, “Trash Fire” is off of the artist’s new album, Candy Man.

Player

“On this album, I threw the rule book aside of what people think I am supposed to be. I took trap, metal, goth/industrial, witch house, and techno and threw it in a blender. All of my influences are present, and I am creating the album I would most want to hear. ‘Candy Man’ is the soundtrack to my version of the Apocalypse: it’s colorful, it’s sexual, it’s psychedelic, it’s dark and it’s fun at the same time. Why should the end of the world be boring?”

ZARAGOZA Reinvigorates the Holidays with “Gypsy Christmas”

81NTt7kKOKL. SS500

LA Based Singer / Songwriter ZARAGOZA has released his refreshingly minimalist official music video for his new single, “Gypsy Christmas.” Originally premiered on mxdwn, “Gypsy Christmas” is the artist’s first original release since his Billboard charting debut EP, Child of The Sun.

“Christmas has always been my favorite Holiday and the modern commercialism of it can make it stressful which is the opposite of what its about. This song is about getting away from that modern commercialism.” – ZARAGOZA

Player

“Thanksgiving’s over and if you’ve turned on your car radio, entered a department store, or watched a minute of network television, you’ll know it’s officially Christmastime. If you already need a break from the cliche overload of ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ and ‘Last Christmas,’ we have the perfect song for your holiday playlist. Today, we’re excited to premiere the new single from Zaragoza called ‘Gypsy Christmas.’” – Matt Matasci – mxdwn

“Instead of screaming about what’s wrong in the world, I’m singing about what’s right,” says Zaragoza. For audiences who have only witnessed his ferocious performances with the Hollywood-based metal band Sinicle, the concept of Zaragoza performing acoustically based music as a singer-songwriter might seem a complete departure. “It’s a side of my artistry that hasn’t been expressed,” Zaragoza says. “It was a natural progression.”

Zaragoza’s newest songs are illuminated in vivid detail on his debut solo EP, Child of the Sun. While the tracks include full production arrangements with drums and bass, two of the songs are presented in their most essential forms, with only guitar and Zaragoza’s compelling vocals.

With his new music, Zaragoza retains the intensity of a rock performer as he approaches the acoustic guitar percussively, highlighting harmonics and tapping techniques. “I acknowledge these roots, but the sound allows me to go deeper into a softer, acoustic realm,” he explains.

As a solo artist, he now has the freedom as a songwriter to create a quantity of songs, and then select the best ideas to complete, record and perform. Initially, he allows the lyrics and melodic ideas to exist only in his imagination. “Then it’s like a sling shot – I head back to my guitar and boom – the song is written.”

Working with Southern California- based producer Mikal Reid, whose resume includes artists like Mick Jagger and Ben Harper, the two tracked in Reid’s studio in the hills above the city, in what is Zaragoza describes as “An all wooden room. It’s like recording inside of an acoustic guitar.”

Originally from Reno, NV, Zaragoza was born to music. His late father, a formidable harmonica player, was a front man for local blues bands. Jamming in the garage until all hours was a family tradition. “My father instilled in me how important it is to play from the soul,” Zaragoza recalls. “When I picked up the guitar we played together with a musical relationship.”

Zaragoza formed the band Sinicle, who after building a substantial following with an impressive amount of regional performances, moved together to Hollywood, CA to attend Musicians Institute and launch a recording and touring career that has included concerts and festivals nationwide, bolstered by a notable series of albums.

With his evolution into an acoustically based singer-songwriter, Zaragoza notes that his life experiences guide the themes of his new songs, especially the transforming warmth of a deeply loving relationship. “We’re in a cultural cycle,” he concludes. “The backlash is to go back to the basics: Love is the most basic human need. My music is not about me, it’s about us.”

PARALLEL MOTION Releases Official Music Video for “Illogical”

Ep Art

Hard Rock Band PARALLEL MOTION has released the official music video for their single, “Illogical,” the title track off of their debut EP.

“To some people battling against anxiety might be an illogical story. But for those who live it, it’s a frightening experience. It’s a never-ending battle but music helps us take a message of hope to those in need.”

Player

“As a band, “Illogical” has a special place for us. It was actually the first song we ever made. From that moment on we realized we wanted Parallel Motion to be a band that gave the listener the confidence that they can do better as we’ve done better in our personal lives.

As fans of metal and hardrock we enjoyed listening to music that was very emotional in our upbringing. This music got us through a lot but most of those songs remind us of our past and become hard to revisit. We wanted to take a different approach when writing this ep. There were a lot of bad moments embodied in each song. But we wrote each of them in a way that instead of making us relive those bad moments it made us remember those memories as decisive moments that forged who we are today.” – PARALLEL MOTION

Southern California based Metal Band SANGRE has released the official music video for “Death March,” off of their upcoming album, Mas Fuerte Que La Muerte (Stronger Than Death), due out 12/13/2019. Shot at Fuel Music Studios in Fullerton, CA, the video for “Death March” features the band members experiencing different types of stresses from overdue bills, depression, work related issues, eviction, alcohol abuse, and suicidal thoughts.

Player

“‘Death March,’ lyrically, touches on the current situation of ‘living wages’ vs ‘cost of living,’ focusing on the stress, depression, and neglect of personal health and family while just trying to survive in this high demand world. The phenomenon is an actual epidemic in Japan known as ‘Karoshi’ or ‘overworking to survive,’ which in many cases results in suicides or fatigue leading to death.” – Henry Sanchez (Vocals)

The name they’ve created via years of Perseverance and a DIY attitude has caught the attention of many people in the music industry, one of those being, Metal ambassador Jose Mangin (Sirius XM Liquid Metal DJ & Headbangers Ball host) who to this day plays SANGRE on his satellite radio shows and even joined the band on stage to perform their cover of the Brujeria classic, “Matando Gueros”.

Speaking of Brujeria, that band has taken Sangre out on tour a few times over the years and in 2014 invited Sangre vocalist, Henry Sanchez to join them as their second vocalist. Henry would take on the stage name “El Sangron” and has played over 200 shows on 5 continents with the band since his inception.

SANGRE spent 2019 touring with Brujeria, with Sanchez performing in both, opening with Sangre and closing the shows with Brujeria, throughout Europe and the UK.

Put simply, SANGRE eats, sleeps, sweats, and bleeds Heavy Metal! This band represents the musical equivalent of an unstoppable juggernaut careering through any, every, and all obstacles that the road would cast in its way.
