Metalite - "Social Butterflies" (lyric video)

Οι Metalite μας έρχονται από την Σουηδία. Δημιουργήθηκαν προ τετραετίας, αρέσκονται στο μελωδικό power metal κοντά στον ήχο συγκροτημάτων όπως οι Nightwish, Battle Beast, Amaranthe, Dreamtale κλπ.

Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει τρία singles κι έναν "ολοκληρωμένο" δίσκο. Ο δεύτερος είναι προ των πυλών. Φέρει τον τίτλο "Biomechanicals" κι αναμένεται σε λίγες ημέρες. Νέο μέλος της Σουηδικής μπάντας η τραγουδίστρια Erica Ohlsson...

Bio: «Metalite was formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 2015 when Edwin Premberg [guitar] met Emma Bensing [vocals]. He presented his musical ideas and vision to her, and she agreed to join the band. The goal was to write and record melodic and memorable metal songs with a modern and fresh sound.

Edwin and Emma started to co-operate with the Danish producer Jacob Hansen [Volbeat, Evergrey, Amaranthe] and songs started to take shape. During 2016 Metalite found three experienced musicians that agreed to join the band: Lea Larsson [drums], Robert Örnesved [guitar] and Robert Majd [bass].

A deal was signed with the Swedish label Inner Wound Recordings, and the Metalite debut album "Heroes In Time" is scheduled to be released in October 2017. "Afterlife", the first single from the album showcase the Metalite sound in a perfect way, but other songs from the album like "Nightmare", "Heroes In Time" or "Purpose of Life" are just as likely to become fan favorites.

"Heroes In Time" is an impressive debut album filled with melodic and memorable songs, crowned with the strong and emotional vocals by vocalist Emma Bensing as well as a powerful production by Jacob Hansen. The album should be perfect for fans of bands like Beyond The Black, Dynazty and Amaranthe!

The artwork was created by Jan Yrlund [Apocalyptica, Leah, Korpiklaani] and guest appearances on the album includes Fraser Edwards [Ascension] and Jakob Svensson [Wigelius]. In 2019 Metalite changed the line-up and a new singer was presented, Erica Ohlsson.»

Rage - "Let Them Rest in Peace" (video)

When you´re going back in time
you will find out that the biggest enemy of man is man,
always following the blind
and the greedy ones that swallow one by one.

Everyday they're more.
Send them into war,
send them in their final battle and their bodies pile to walls.
Everyday they´re more
going through that door.
But you cannot even value what they gave you when they fall...

They were some mother's son,
they were some father´s daughter,
not just food for guns.
Oh, now all that dreams are gone.
Just like lambs to the slaughter,
only food for guns.
Let them rest in peace!

Those who claim that they can lead
it's their nature that they don´t respect a single human life.
Still they tread them when you bleed.
They collect the bodies, everyone must die.

Everyday they're more...
They were some mother's son...

Godless bloodbath! No more!
Let them rest in peace!
One by one, dead and gone, on and on again...

Under Attack - "Soldier" (lyric video)

Οι Under Attack είναι ουσιαστικά το προσωπικό σχήμα του Daniele Sciacca με την συνεισφορά του κιθαρίστα Fabio Rossi (βλ. Hideweaver). Δημιουργήθηκαν πέρυσι και χαρακτηρίζουν την μουσική τους ως "Old School Heavy Metal", αναφέροντας ως επιρροές μπάντες όπως οι Saxon, Ozzy, Dio, Judas Priest, Quiet Riot.

Σε λίγες ημέρες θα κυκλοφορήσει το ντεμπούτο τους. Πρόκειται για ep τριών τραγουδιών με τίτλο το όνομα της μπάντας κι ουσιαστικά προαναγγέλλει τον πρώτο "ολοκληρωμένο" δίσκο των Under Attack που αναμένεται τον επόμενο έτος (2020).

Δελτίο τύπου: «Italian classic metal project Under Attack release their self-titled EP in digital format via Sliptrick Records on October 25th. The themes on the EP include the self destruction of humanity, the wars, dystopia and the alienation.

The lyrical concept was inspired by three albums: Operation Mindcrime (Queensryche), Cyberpunk (Billy Idol) and Rust in peace (Megadeth). The songs on Under Attack are catchy and edgy at the same time and are influenced primarily by hard rock and 80’s classic metal.

The Under Attack sound is guitar oriented with fills and long and melodic solos typical of the 80’s. The production was entrusted to Nando Bonini, a session man who collaborated with numerous major Italian pop rock artists.

The artwork is designed by Remedy Art Design, the same artist who drew the cover for the album Atlantic by Evergrey. The EP is Produced by Daniele Sciacca and Nando Bonini for Mister Metal Production, recorded and arranged by Nando Bonini and mixed by Dario Digy Galbusera. Fabio Rossi is the guest soloist on the track The Rules.»

Bio: «Under Attack is essentially a duo from Italy, founded in 2018 by the singer and composer Daniele Sciacca. Daniele counts on the cooperation of Nando Bonini (Italian arranger and session man) and Fabio Rossi as guest guitarist to flesh out the project.

When it comes to the sound, it’s influenced by hard rock and 80’s classic metal wrapped up in Under Attackway of doing things. The song lyrics are primarily focused on themes such as bio engineering, war, etc. Work on their first full album is nearly complete and the release will see the light in 2020 via Sliptrick Records.»

Blame Zeus: «Our new upcoming album will still possess BZ's genome, but it will bring some fresh features you've never seen in our work. It will be heavier, darker, more progressive, and it will make the fans submerge in a turmoil of strong feelings.

Fans will certainly feel our same old vibe in the songs, but recognize it has been upgraded, with a more modern sound. We worked freely, with no strings attached, using new elements, making everything sound rhythmically, harmonically and melodically intertwined. We have certainly not made things easier to ourselves, and had to evolve technically to be able to play and sing these new songs.»

Sandra Oliveira: «Seethe' could very well be considered a conceptual album because the main theme of the songs is unexpressed anger, silent pain transformed into poetry. Its contradictory nature is the liberation of the soul, it's letting go of that lump on your throat when you have something to say. Each song speaks of a particular situation where the silence and the numbness become a vehicle for action and freedom or even utmost despair.»

The Ferrymen - The Making of "A New Evil" (Behind-The-Scenes)

Τον Σουηδό κιθαρίστα Magnus Karlsson τον έμαθα από τον δίσκο των Last Tribe "The Uncrowned" που κυκλοφόρησε το 2003. Εξαιρετικής ποιότητας μελωδικό metal, αλλά δεν υπήρξε συνέχεια. Ο Karlsson συμμετείχε σε μία σειρά από μπάντες και projects όπως οι Primal Fear (στους οποίος παραμένει μέχρι σήμερα), Allen - Lande, Starbreaker, Kiske / Somerville, Free Fall κλπ.

Ο Ronald (ή Ronnie) Romero έγινε γνωστός όταν τον επέλεξε ο Richie Blackmore στην πρόσφατη επανένωση των Rainbow. Το "κανονικό" συγκρότημα του Χιλιανού τραγουδιστή ήταν οι Lords of Black, αλλά πλέον αποχώρησε (και αντικαταστάθηκε από τον Diego Valdez).

Τέλος ο Mike Terrana, αυτό το "τέρας" των τυμπάνων, δεν νομίζω ότι χρειάζεται συστάσεις. Έχει περάσει από Malmsteen, Axel Rudi Pell, Rage, MacAlpine, Masterplan, Artension κλπ (σταματώ εδώ γιατί αν αναφέρω όλες τις μπάντες και τα albums στα οποία έχει συμμετάσχει θα τελειώσω... μεθαύριο!).

Γιατί αυτά τρία ονόματα στην ίδια ανάρτηση; Γιατί οι τρεις προαναφερθέντες μουσικοί σχημάτισαν νέο project υπό το όνομα The Ferrymen. Προ διετίας κυκλοφόρησαν το ομώνυμο ντεμπούτο τους, ενώ το δεύτερο album βρίσκεται ήδη εκεί έξω. Τιτλοφορείται "A New Evil" και "βγήκε" προ ημερών...

Δελτίο τύπου: «The Ferrymen released their debut album in June 2017 and took fans of the European melodic metal sound by surprise as they seemingly came out of nowhere.

With songwriting and fretwork handled by ace Swedish guitarist Magnus Karlsson (Primal Fear, Magnus Karlsson's Free Fall), the awesome vocals of singer Ronnie Romero (Rainbow, CoreLeoni), and drummer Mike Terrana (Axel Rudi Pell, Tarja, Rage) bringing the heavy metal thunder, the band quickly found their home in the hearts of fans of the classic DIO sound combined with heavier, updated songwriting textures and arrangements.

Musically, fans can expect in "A New Evil" a very heavy, melodic metal album fusing the songwriting and epic structures of the widely praised Allen/Lande records (guitarist Magnus Karlsson was the main architect of the first three critically acclaimed releases) with the powerful vocal approach of Romero (let's not forget that Romero was hand-picked by legendary Deep Purple and Rainbow guitarist Ritchie Blackmore to be the lead vocalist for Rainbow's recent reunion shows).

True heavy metal fans are of course quite familiar with the well regarded Terrana and what his drumming skill set brings to the table on a heavy metal album of this nature. And what metal album would be complete without some stunning artwork? Renowned artist Stan W. Decker's album cover rounds out this colossal heavy metal offering. "A New Evil" will be a shot of adrenaline for all lovers of melodic metal!»

Magnus Karlsson: «"A New Evil" is a bit heavier and more progressive. I’m always learning and try to improve my songs and productions each time out. Working with Ronnie and Mike is a such a great experience. I can concentrate on the writing and whatever I will come up with I know they will nail it!

This time Jacob Hansen (Pretty Maids, Volbeat, etc.) did the mix and it works really well with the heavy style. I have a few favorites like 'Don’t Stand In My Way', 'Bring Me Home', And 'A New Evil'. But a very special song for me is 'No Matter How Hard We Fall'.

When you hear Ronnie in that chorus you will get goosebumps. Ronnie’s favorite is 'Bring Me Home', but I’m really looking forward to when people can hear the whole album because I'm sure they are gonna love every second of music on it!»

Ronald Romero: «I think it's a great album and people are gonna love it as they did with the first one. Everybody knows Magnus' skills to write great music, so it’s really easy to like every song on the album.

This time was maybe even easier to work together because is the second album and we know each other better, he knew how to get my best performances, so I’m very proud about my work and grateful to have Magnus working side by side with me.»

Sabïre - "Rise to the Top" (video)

 Το βίντεο των Sabïre για το "Rise to the Top" από το ep "Gates Ajar"
Sweat on your brow
And you keep pressing on
You keep your head held high
Smile and you sing
But there's only one thing
You feel like you're passed by

You can't take it hard
Cos' they won't understand
That when the chips are down
You'll have the upper hand
I won't be put down
You can't push me away
I'm gonna stand on my own
And I'm going to say

Yeah I'm gonna rise to the top
Baby I'm gonna set the bar
You can pay no regard, you can look away
But I'm gonna go so far

Room with a crowd
But you still stand alone
"Is there something wrong with me?"
A club VIP
But you don't have a key
It's clear you don't fit in

Courtesy calls
And rears up it's head
A thicket of lies
In the light that you shed
I won't be put down
You can't push me away
I'm gonna stand on my own
And I'm going to say

Oh, I'm gonna rise to the top
Yeah I'm gonna set the bar
You can sing your praises
You can leave me out
But I'm gonna go so far

You can look right through me
You can walk right past
I've got never a care
I was built to last


Ονομάζονται Sabïre, δημιουργήθηκαν στον Καναδά προ εννιαετίας, αλλά πλέον έχουν μεταφέρει την βάση τους στην Αυστραλία. Χαρακτηρίζουν την μουσική τους ως "Acid Metal" και δηλώνουν επηρεασμένοι από μπάντες όπως οι Tank, Venom, Diamond Head, W.A.S.P.

Τον περασμένο Δεκέμβριο κυκλοφόρησαν ψηφιακά το (αυτοχρηματοδοτούμενο) ep "Gates Ajar". Τον Μάρτιο "βγήκε" σε κασέτα (Ropes & Bones), τον Απρίλιο σε cd (Skol Records) και τον Μάιο σε βινύλιο (No Remorse Records)...

Δελτίο τύπου: «This Mini-Album is meant and intended to be a "showcase" of what can be expected in future material. Sabïre is not and will never be a single dimension art experience. Sabïre has many facets, and will in future display more of and less of each facet, as well as emerge with new angles unknown to the author at the time of this writing. "Gates Ajar" is an attempt to give the listener an idea of what is to come. Each song explores a very different facet than the last, and is sewn together as harmoniously as possible.»

Black Rain - "Blast Me Up" (Live at Hellfest 2019)

Οι BlackRain σχηματίσθηκαν στην Γαλλία το 2001 ως speed / power metal μπάντα, αλλά στην πορεία υιοθέτησαν glam αισθητική. Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει έξι "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους (συν ένα ep κι ένα demo). Ο έκτος και πλέον πρόσφατος φέρει τον τίτλο "Dying Breed" και κυκλοφόρησε προ μηνός...

Bio: «For, having formed in 2006 in the French Alps and with five albums under their belts, countless concerts in France, Europe and even Japan and Tunisia, these four musicians know for a fact this forthcoming year is undoubtedly one more step in their career.

During many years spent learning the tortuous ways of Rock 'n' Roll, the band met a lot of great bands like Europe, Papa Roach, Alice Cooper, Scorpions, Steel Panther, Ugly Kid Joe with whom they played. “France’s Got Talent” national TV show allowed them to delivered memorable live performances to an audience of several million that made a French hard rock band famous in France for the first and the last time in the history of the show!»

Δελτίο τύπου: «Composed and recorded in Sweden where Swan, the frontman, is permanently settled, this new album called “Dying Breed” is like a response to the way the music world goes. Surrounded by electro music and RnB, struck by the death of many of their idols that made the rock history, asked by people why they still wear this old-fashioned long hair, the four guys more and more felt like a dying breed, “the last of their kind” as it is said in the new song they unveil before they hit the mainstage of Hellfest in France.»
