RATCHET DOLLS Release Official Lyric Video for “Parasite!”

Parasite Artwork

Brownsville, TX rock band RATCHET DOLLS has released a new single titled “Parasite!” through independent label, EarRiot Records. From catchy vocal chants to groovy riffs and ripping solos, “Parasite” introduces a new sound to the band that will cater to both current and fresh listeners across the rock spectrum.

Player

“Although the song has a very uplifting feel, the lyrics themselves are rather dark. “Parasite!” speaks to us from the perspective of a person who’s mental health has deteriorated from trying to meet the standards of a non-committed partner. One-sided relationships can lead to vulnerability… My goal is to try to help prevent others from having to walk that road; even if it’s just one person.”

BLOODYWOOD COMBATS LOSS WITH CANINE THEMED MUSIC VIDEO, “YAAD”.

5I3A3735

New Delhi based Indian Metal Band BLOODYWOOD has released the official music video for their newest single, “Yaad.” Shot in between the snow-capped mountains of the Himalayas and urban India, the music video celebrates the universal human experience of love and loss through a moving story between a man and his companion dog.

“’Yaad’ (Hindi for ‘remember’ or ‘in memory’) is about the power of accepting the loss of a loved one and moving on. The lyrics celebrate the permanent impact they have on us, reiterating the belief that we carry them in our best memories, no matter how far apart we may be, says Karan Katiyar, Bloodywood’s Founder/guitarist, “I lost my dog 10 years ago and I still feel the loss to this day. I wanted the video to show the bond between a man and his dog to highlight its message.”

In spirit of the message within the song and video, Bloodywood funded the purchase of an animal ambulance for a local non-profit animal shelter called The Posh Foundation, who had to recently scrap their existing ambulance due to overuse and break-downs and were in dire need of a new one.

The new ambulance, which will help save the lives of over 27,000 homeless animals in the National Capital Region of India over the next 5 years, was purchased by the band using the profits made on their very successful 2019 debut tour of Europe named Raj Against the Machine Tour and through their crowdfunding page on Patreon.

Bloodywood were scheduled to make their US debut at the Sonic Temple Festival which has been cancelled due to the CoronaVirus. Karan adds, “We had the US tour planned and we have dates in Europe in August, We are very sad we didn’t get to play for our American fans, and hope our August European festival dates don’t get cancelled. No matter what happens in 2020 we will be back in 2021”

The European Festival Dates:
07/08 @ Bloodstock Festival – Derby, UK
08/09 @ Alcatraz Festival (Swamp Stage) – Kortrijk, BE
08/14 @ Reload Festival – Sulingen, DE
08/15 @ Summer Breeze Open Air – Dinkelsbühl, DE

5I3A3777-2

Bloodywood is a metal band from India known for pioneering a sound that seamlessly fuses Indian folk instruments with metal to devastating effect. Expect to hear the percussive power of the mighty Dhol, the melancholic flute, the single stringed Tumbi and several other uncommon, yet distinctly characteristic sounds from India. A combination of thunderous Hindi/Punjabi choruses and meaningful yet unforgiving rap verses along with the ethnic instrumentation makes Bloodywood a truly unique experience.

Visualizer

I think that “Falling” is me finding myself as an artist, and you can hear the evolution of my songwriting. I actually broke down into tears while recording the vocals for this track, which was a first for me, and that’s when I knew this song was special. I love the fact that I got to bring so many different influences into this song. It’s a great reference for what’s to come with my official debut album later this year.” – KYLE PFEIFFER

MESSER Releases 23 Track Remix Album for “Simple Man,”‘RE:TURN RE:VISIT RE:MIX’!

YOUTUBE Reduced

Heavy, Alternative rock band MESSER has announced the release of RE:TURN RE:VISIT RE:MIX. Originally launched by the band’s producer, Chad Gendason of Maddpants Records with popular music-production site Splice.com as a remix contest, fans inundated the band and site with hundreds of submissions, leading to a mammoth, 23 track collection of rei-maginings of the band’s 2019 released single, “Simple Man,” to showcase the talent of these diverse up-and-coming producers. Gendason worked closely on the final arranging and mixing, and the extraordinary results take the song in wildly different emotional and musical directions.

Visualizer

“‘Simple man’ is a song written from the perspective of someone who is removing themselves from the drama or superficial aspects and expectations of social media/society.

Resolved in the strength it takes to be alone and move themselves forward. It’s a narrative on how this person wants to find their own power and focus on clarity of self. “What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger” is the mantra and highlights the strength it takes to step away from the shallow world into something more meaningful for themselves. #Go” – MESSER

Maddox Messer – Bass/ Vocals

MESSER means “knife” in German, and the Dallas, Texas band has lived up to its name since cutting an inescapable swath into the rock world with their debut single, “Make This Life.” The band’s cutting edge modern rock sound was born through serendipitous connections in the thriving Deep Ellum music scene of Dallas, an area that has given rise to iconic Hard Rock and Metal bands like PanteraDrowning PoolHell Yeah, and King’s X.

Messer continued their momentum from their breakout year with the release of “Simple Man”, the 3rd single and video from their self-titled debut album, which bowed at #3 on the Soundscan New Artist chart and was named “New and Noteworthy” at iTunes and Amazon Music. The Dallas, Texas based band had a banner year in 2018 with first single “Make This Life” reaching #25 on the Active Rock radio charts, and second single “Save Myself” also made it into the Top 30 – the only truly independent act to do so.

“Simple Man” peaked at #23 on the Active Rock charts, and is the highest charting single for the band to date. It garnered attention throughout the rock world with spots on key Hard Rock playlists on SpotifyApple MusicAmazon MusicPandora RadioGoogle Play MusicYoutube, and Slacker Radio. The band has received accolades from LoudwireAXSAlternative PressRevolverNew NoisePure Grain Audio, and more. All 3 singles were also featured on iHeartradio’s “Artist You Should Know” with adds on Sirius/XM OctaneMusic Choice, and over 70 rock radio stations throughout the United States, resulting in 30,000 spins at rock radio, 15 million combined audience, and 10 million worldwide streams.

The band has since grown their fan base locally, quickly branching out regionally and nationally, opening for notable bands such as Sick PuppiesCandleboxHinderVince NeilBlack Stone CherryLynch MobDrowning PoolLocal HTraptMetallicaDokkenScott Stapp Of CreedAvenged Sevenfold, and Buckcherry, including a 40-city sold out tour with RED and Lacey Sturm. The band was even personally invited by Kevin Lyman to play the Texas leg of the final Vans Warped Tour.

It was on one of these tours that the band caught the attention of Los Angeles based writer/producer, Chad Gendason. The band felt an immediate comeradery with Chad and a lasting bond was made. Messer started writing with Chad, and their first collaboration became “Simple Man”. Fan favorite “Whiskey” soon followed and the songs started to flow into what would eventually become their self-titled debut album, Messer, which released on 4/20/18 on Maddpants Records. The album was mixed by Ben Grosse (Marilyn MansonBreaking BenjaminDisturbed) and mastered by Tom Baker (Papa RoachDavid BowieMotley Crue).

Dereak knew he wanted to pursue singing as a career while in High School in Iowa and started honing his chops with local bands. After high school he moved to Dallas to pursue his music career professionally. His first contact was with Dallas native Javier, who was making a name for himself playing in Jagermeister sponsored bands Mudflap and Pimpadelic. The two bonded at a show and became the genesis of Messer. While looking for a place to get his hair cut, Dereak walked into Maddox’s Hair salon on a whim. The two struck up a conversation about music and another connection was made. Kenny was traveling from his home in Canada to an audition in Phoenix when his car broke down in Dallas. He ended up staying in town and found success playing with the band Strangleweed, who made an appearance on the nationally televised Courtroom show “Eye for an Eye”. That caught the attention of the members of Messer, and Kenny became part of the family. Donnie was playing in various Dallas bands and gaining attention as an award-winning Tattoo artist. Maddox would play Donnie tracks the band was working on and in turn, Donnie would play music he was recording at his own home studio. As Messer continued to develop as a band, they knew they wanted to add an additional guitar player, and they all agreed that Donnie was a great fit. The lineup for Messer was solidified.

In 2019, Messer, with producer Chad Gendason, teamed with Splice.com on a remix contest for their most recent single, “Single Man,” which ultimately led to hundreds of submissions branching all corners of the electronic genre. Due to the overwhelming response, the band and Gendason collected the top 23 remixes to package into a powerhouse remix album, RE:TURN RE:VISIT RE:MIX, which is set to release via Maddpants Records on April 10, 2020.

MESSER is a band that is building a brand of new rock that blurs the line between nostalgia and modern art, leaving the listener with a sound that is not only familiar but also NEW and ADDICTIVE.

Lehighton, PA Hard Alternative Rock Band ANOTHER DAY DAWNS has released the official music video for “Beautiful Suicide,” off of their newly released EP, Stranger. “Beautiful Suicide” was directed and edited by Cyrus Entezam and Produced by John Phillips of 900 Management.

Player

“When we wrote the song, it had to deal with a political climate of fear and control. The song indirectly was written essentially how fragile everything is and when it falls apart it leaves anarchy. This day and age with the current situations we have at hand, we thought it was best to have a video about what happens when fear and greed have taken control and how they prey on us.” – Dakota Sean

Visualizer

“We recently started poking around at the idea of performing over the internet, live, all while interacting with the fans and viewers. Our amazing fans showed up and supported us right back, and it’s so amazing that this sort of thing can be done in such strange times. Any band can do this, and I encourage those performers out there who are unable to tour or play regular shows to look into live streaming. You just might surprise yourself at how well you’d do.”
-Rawrb

“If people can’t go out to shows, then we’ll come to them in their homes… so heat up a bowl of ramen noodles and let’s have some damn fun. Just because we’re not supposed to leave the house doesn’t mean we aren’t allowed to have fun.”
-Joshy

“Psychostick’s ‘Cabin Fever Concerts’ are fun because THE WHOLE WORLD is invited! No matter how far apart we are, we can all get together safely to have a kick-ass time online! You don’t have to worry about parking or how you’re gonna get there/home (all drinking, NO driving!) You can watch a Psychostick concert from ANYWHERE in your underwear, your birthday suit, BDSM gear, etc… It doesn’t cost you anything and there’s no hidden fees (lookin at YOU Ticketmaster / Live Nation). If you like what we’re doing and feel like supporting us, anything helps, even just watching us for free and having a good time. Who knew brutal riffs and crunchy metal could be so positive?”
-Matty J

“Streaming live concerts offers musicians a chance to perform for people all over the globe in real time. To me, it seems like a fantastic opportunity to help the world develop a global mindset to not only work together, but to enjoy art together as well. If you agree with that, then you have to agree that songs like “Scrotal Torment” and “Thinkin’ With Yer D” are indeed…art.”

After years of Eric Boyce begging his girlfriend Shannon Plumley to sing for him and a request from his mother to perform any other genre than metal, The Huntrs performed 2 original songs at a talent show in Petersburg, Va. June 2014. After having a great time and receiving standing ovation it was decided to continue furthering this new musical endeavor. Even without many performances the name spread through local benefit shows and house show parties. For years the songwriting continued as the search for the perfect lineup of members finally came to a conclusion in 2019 when Eric Boyce and Shannon Plumley added Mario Crawley and Stephen Zaruba. The first edition of Mario came clear to Eric after experiencing his talent and devotion in a local metal act. The addition of the drummer, Stephen, was ironically suggested by Eric’s mother, Julie, who coincidentally worked with Stephen’s mother. With a full lineup 2019 was a busy year with learning and rehearsing and almost twenty-five song original setlist. February 2020, The Huntrs released their first professionally recorded single Locked And Loaded with a second single, released on St. Patrick’s Day, close behind.

“We really took our time with RED, “Martin enthuses, “we had the vision and we knew it had to be done right. The songs each have so much life and we felt a real duty to do them justice. There are some really personal and very real moments on this album. We absolutely did not hold back, there are songs about struggle, depression, suicide and loss and there are songs about strength, hope, victory and love. We demoed almost 30 songs for this album so we had a lot of work to do to narrow the list down. One of last songs we wrote, it almost missed the cut too, but the throat punch we call Do You See Birds opens the album and sets the tone on a real rollercoaster of a ride. We felt it was especially important to give the listener a total immersive experience from start to finish. There’s lots of mood, colour and texture in the songs as well as between them. It’s a trip.”

The amazing response of the first two singles “Endo” and “All Fall Down” show the promise this album holds. Both songs receiving high rotate radio play and amassing serious numbers online.

From the epic moodiness of “Blood & Bone,” the caged rage of “Same Life,” the visceral impact of “The Victor,” to the poignant beauty of “Sweet Release,” the resplendent grandeur of “Bright Lights,” right through to the swagger of “Be Like The River” and the manic fury of “Everybody’s High But Me,” Devilskin have bared their soul with their finest performances yet.

The album will be released digitally on all the usual formats, physically via CD and LP and there will be a limited edition deluxe box set.

Devilskin is a four piece band from Hamilton New Zealand formed in June 2010, they already have guts, class, kudos and confidence. The sum total of a determined and accomplished group of musicians who know what they want, the music is organic, dynamic and real.

The band features the spectacular Jennie Skulander on lead vocals. Her powerful and compelling voice and alluring stage presence sets her apart from any vocalist New Zealand has put up so far. With an unerring gift for melody, Jennie’s incredible voice sweeps from whisper to roar, rips with power, drips with melody and captivates with sincerity.
Jennie previously fronted Rotorua band Slipping Tongue garnering a swathe of fans with their videos, EPs and album. Slipping Tongue also impressed many when they opened for Coheed & Cambria in 2008.

On lead guitar is Nail from popular Waikato band Chuganaut who won the NZ Battle of the Bands and the World Battle Of The Bands in 2004. Played BDO in 2005 and opened for Iron Maiden at Mt Smart stadium in 2009. Chuganaut has played numerous national tours and released several singles, EPs, videos and an album. Nail’s searing guitar work and high energy performance bring real intensity to the live show.

Playing bass guitar is Paul Martin, known as the Axeman from arguably, New Zealand’s most popular radio show, the Axe Attack. Lead guitarist and vocalist for World War Four, Paul’s previous bands include Knightshade and Blackjack. He has opened for Black Label Society (2006), Heaven & Hell (2007) and Motorhead twice (2008), and played BDO (2009). Paul’s powerful and aggressive bass style is a propulsive force in the bands sound.

Nic Martin joined Devilskin as drummer in August 2011 at the age of 15. Paul’s son, Nic is the youngest artist to ever play the BDO when he performed with World War Four in 2009 at the age of 13. Nic adds to the show with a real display of power and passion on the drums. With a fierce style all his own and the inexhaustible energy of youth, Nic’s truculent style and showmanship are fast becoming a talking point on the NZ live music scene. Not to mention making Devilskin one of the few bands featuring a father and son in their line-up.

Together, Devilskin have the ability to write songs that have depth and passion. They create a compelling and irresistible sound and perform a stunning, explosive, live show.

The art of song-writing is back.
