Video by: Diego Barranco

Type: Full length
Total length: 40:16
Release date: May 18th, 2018

07. Fading (3:54)
08. Join The Parade (4:39)
09. Divide (4:48)
10. Back Again (5:31)

Band members:
Nathan Da Silva - Vocals, Guitar
Sarah Westbrook - Keyboards, Samples
Alberto Campuzano - Bass, Vocals
Brendan Soares - Drums, Vocals

Music composed by The Slyde. Drums engineered and recorded by Mike Bond at Pebble Studios. All other instruments engineered and recorded by Nathan Da Silva. Produced by Nathan Da Silva with The Slyde. Mixed by Andres Puche with Nathan Da Silva and Sarah Westbrook. Mastered by Matt Glover (Tracks 7 through 10, which appeared on the Back Again EP, were remastered). Artwork by Casey Shea.

Δελτίο τύπου: «Following up with 2017's EP release "Back Again", Toronto melodic proggers THE SLYDE return with their first full length effort titled "Awakening". The band (formerly known as just Slyde) will drop ten tracks of their intricate, contrapuntal prog rock that they've honed over the last decade on May 18, 2018. In true prog fashion, THE SLYDE stays true to their mission statement with their quirky arrangements, aggressive edge, and ominous lyrics.

The result is a thought provoking, high-octane album for fans of Rush, Dream Theater, Haken, Coheed and Cambria, and Megadeth. Driven by Nathan Da Silva’s elegant vocals, Sarah Westbrook's powering keyboard skills, and the powerful rhythm section of Alberto Campuzano (Warmachine, ex-Annihilator) and Brendan Soares, the band are to catch the ears of any technically minded melodic prog rock fan.»

The Slyde: «"Awakening" refers to the process of invoking change. Each song can be seen as a protest song, arguing for a more peaceful and autonomous way of life. For example, the opening track "Awaken/Walk With Me" is about getting away from the powerful effects of media control and propaganda. "Back Again" is about the beauty and fragility of our Earth, and how we take it for granted. "Divide" refers to the brainwashing effects of politics of fear and division in the West.

"Awakening" looks at our daily consumption and poses the question 'what is, or could be, our reality? We think fans will certainly enjoy this release, and will notice that we're slowly adding more of an aggressive edge to our songwriting plus incorporating more "metal" elements into the riffs. "Awakening" is less conceptual than previous releases by containing more straight up rockin' tunes. Each song stands on its own.»

Δελτίο τύπου: « In 1989, four high school friends from Orlando, FL came together to form a band, based on their mutual love of melodic metal acts such as Iron Maiden, Queensrÿche & Fates Warning. After years of Friday night practices in the living room of guitarist Chuck McMenamin parents, the band had a cache of original songs ready to go.

With lyrics penned by guitarist Dave Borkman and drummer Bryan Shultz, blazing riffs from Bryan, Dave and Chuck and pounding bass laid down by Chris Bongiovanni, they set out looking for a vocalist by placing an ad in Orlando’s JAM magazine. The call was answered by Sterling Walker, and they moved out of the living room and into a warehouse to begin perfecting their sound with their new vocalist.

1991 Mind's Eye were released 500 copies of “The Witching Hour" Demo tape and when the first run sold out quickly enough that another 500 cassettes had been placed by year’s end. In early 1992, the band entered Signature Sound Studios in Orlando, FL, to record “Darkly Wise”, their first full length album, containing 11 songs.

500 cassette tapes, along with t-shirts and hats were released on October 31st, 1992 to promote the album. Arkeyn Steel Records came in contact with Chuck McMenamin (Guitarist of the band) and finally release for the very first time on CD both tapes! “Darkly Wise” CD includes “Darkly Wise” (LP-Tape 1992) and “The Witching Hour” (Demo 1991), 16 tracks in total, over 75’ minutes of melodic US metal!

All songs have been remastered by Kostas Scandalis (Wardrum, Horizons End) at Infinity Studios and will be presented on a great deluxe jewel CD package, with a fat 16-page UV glossy booklet, featuring original fantasy “Darkly Wise” cover, unpublished vintage photos, detailed band story and lyrics! Don't miss this melodic/lyrical US METAL experience! MUST for all worshipers of QUEENSRYCHE, LETHAL, CRIMSON GLORY, FIFTH ANGEL, HEIR APPARENT, and LEATHERWOLF! See with the MIND’S EYE… and melodic US METAL is coming!»

Alms - "Act One" (audios)

Οι Alms μας έρχονται από την αντίπερα όχθη του Ατλαντικού (Η.Π.Α.). Αρέσκονται στο doom metal / rock "διανθισμένο" με 70ies μουσικά στοιχεία. Πέρυσι παρουσιάσθηκαν στο μουσικόφιλο κοινό με το παρθενικό τους demo. Ο πρώτος "ολοκληρωμένος" δίσκος αναμένεται το φθινόπωρο. Τιτλοφορείται "Act One" και παίρνουμε μία πρώτη "γεύση" με την ακρόαση δύο τραγουδιών...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Hailing from Baltimore, ALMS honors Maryland's rich heritage of doom metal with a swaggering, soulful sound that unselfconsciously spans decades and idioms. Their made their first, grand steps with a two-song demo released at the beginning of 2017.

Having already made waves in their local scene, this demo would soon spread like wildfire amongst doom fanatics, and soon the ALMS name was on many a tongue. But alas, with the full-length Alms, that name will be on tongues worldwide.

Stomping forward across six BIG songs in a judiciously concise 34 minutes, ALMS quickly establish a mood of both merriment and portent. Theirs is a sound which culls the bluesy ruminations of classic Deep Purple, the wild excursions of equally classic Uriah Heep, and the dark thunder of Maryland forebears The Obsessed.

And yet, that aforementioned soul and swagger soon take center stage, both allowing the doom chunder to loosely lumber whilst putting a particularly pleading-for-deliverance aspect upon proceedings.

It's that eternal fire of the greatest rock music, especially in that pre-metal era of the 1970s, where fire and brimstone often coursed through rock 'n' roll, but near-equally pays homage to the heavy developments at the turn of the '80s. But all of this would be for naught if ALMS didn't have the songs to back it up, and indeed does Alms have SONGS.»
