WAC Release Multigenre ‘DOEP’ LP


Norwegian based WAC has released their massive, 20 track LP, DOEP. Ranging from the Indie Rock “Mojave,” which would fit comfortably on any Quentin Tarantino film, to the effervescent Indie Pop “Tortoise (feat. Valaria),” DOEP is a rare gem in the music world that manages to explore and bend genres while maintaining consistent listenability.

…one group, We Are Castor, have taken the concept of genres–and not just within EDM but throughout the full music spectrum–to a new place with the release of their upcoming, full length LP, DOEP. – Paste

The crazy scientists innovate and blow up the walls and the people, the artists explode the barriers of the codes to delight our ears. Our group of the day is obviously part of the second category. The whale has nujabes chill accents with a more pop-up rhythm and pop. The ramp-up at the end of the piece is simply magical. Here, their sound is a trick of magic, that’s how I would define it. – anotherwhiskeyformrbukowski

Feel free to use your imagination when listening to W.A.C.’s single “Tortoise”. The indie alternative track is a delight for the ears and the soul as the protagonist and singer/songwriter Valeria tells a tale of a chat with a Tortoise. W.A.C. are a new name to the EARMILK site, but their own self-proclaimed bio describes them perfectly, as they remark “W.A.C. is a genreconfused band from Norway. We make whatever we feel like.”

 – Earmilk

From the start, you’re not really sure what you’re going to get. At first it feels a bit psychedelic, then it moves to a bluesy rock instrumental. At it’s heart that’s what “Conduire” is, but that doesn’t mean We Are Castor doesn’t throw in their own wacky mix of sounds to spice things up. From beginning to end We Are Castor has you hyper-engaged with the musical picture they’ve painted. – The Music Ninja

Frightful Nashville Rockers Fable Cry Announce Theme of Upcoming Conceptual 3rd Album

Horror themed, theatrical scamp rock band Fable Cry has announced the story-line of their upcoming, highly anticipated third album. Although as yet unnamed, the band has revealed an incredibly complex and imaginative outline that promises fans yet another seamless fusion of top notch musicianship and dramatic storytelling. The album is set to release Spring 2018, but fans can look forward to a taste with the release of the first music video in October, just time for Halloween!

We’re working on third full length album: a conceptual based in the post-prohibition 30’s, in a world where bootleggers have traded in their skills of smuggling alcohol, to smuggling blood and selling it to a secret underground network of Vampires. The story follows a young, would-be starlet, who’s attempted murder leads her to seek help from the members of the most infamous, blood-loving speakeasies known simply as “The Joint”. She soon finds that the leader among them has similar interests of revenge, and they must band together to give this killer what he deserves… Wrapped in mystery, seduction, greed, and gore, the tale asks: If you could pay the price, what would be so wrong with embracing your darker side? – Fable Cry

I love when I come across a band that infuses horror into their sound and overall image. Such was the case when I was tipped off to to a band called Fable Cry, who describe their sound as ‘theatrical scamp rock’. It’s a bit macabre and quirky, with the quirky part being a good thing, and their new video for ‘Dead Or Alive (For Now)‘ looks like it belongs in smack dab in the middle of a Tim Burton movie. I dig the old school horror visuals in the video and I’m not ashamed to admit I was more than creeped out by the cello player.– Dirty Horror

This is a band that brings to life colorful and imagery through their use of cello, violin in addition to an array of non traditional rock instruments. Their vaudevillian style is almost like a fusion of Foxy Shazam, Queen and Danny Elfman and their refreshing sound is quickly garnering a lot of great attention. – Music Junky Press

On to the music we go, and I want to start by talking about “Fancy Dancing”. This track, and almost the entire album, would be perfectly at home in any Tim Burton movie, and I absolutely love it. It’s as if Danny Elfman had sat down to write the song with them. If I understand the lyrics correctly, and I think I do, the song is about a dead man, traveling the road of the dead who meets a witch, and she ends up telling him, upon his asking, “I saw you dancing, I saw you dancing fancy”. At the end of the song he comes to a tree, and sees a man dangling from a tree, dancing fancy. He sees that the man looks just like him, and is him; being hanged, dying. I love the lyrical play in this song, as it obscures what is happening by using metaphor in the title of the song. It’s been said that people who are hanged do a little “dance” as they die, their feet kick and move about until they are dead, hence the metaphor of “Dancing Fancy”. – Chimera Magazine

Fable Cry, the frightful rock quintet, currently reside in Nashville, TN, drawing inspiration musically, poetically, and artistically from all things imaginative, mythical, and spooky.

Their story began when Zach Ferrin first started putting his imagination to song. The year was 2010, and he was determined to take the music, art, and stories he had been cultivating to one great platform where he could share them, with the intent to wrap it into one bundle of entertainment for the masses. He and and his sister, former member Kirstie Ferrin, had half of what would become their first album written before they would have a title by which to call themselves. The songs were all rambunctious, melodic, and wrapped in themes of loss, love, hate, and triumph playfully told through tales of legend and myth. “Fable Cry” was born, and in 2011 they self released their self-titled debut album. Between the two of them they played guitar, violin, accordion, drums, bells, kazoo, ukelele, banjo, and cello, and they tried their best to include as much of it as possible in their live shows, along with humorous intros, crowd participation, and twistedly playful “Story Time” between songs.

By the end of 2013, after 4 elaborate music videos, several national tours, and lots of writing, Kirstie left and Zach decided that it was time to expand Fable Cry and build a band that could properly play these songs that were too big for him alone. That void was soon filled by classically trained violinist and vocalist Jo Cleary, and longtime friend and bass aficionado Scott Fernandez, with a revolving door of others who would help bring this ever-growing monster new life. They immediately hit the studio to record and release their first single/music video together in the Autumn of 2014 entitled “Fancy Dancing.” Now performing as a full band, they could execute the songs the way they had always been written, packed with energy and dynamics, while maintaining (and inevitably amplifying) the band’s theatrics, elaborate wardrobes, makeup, and overall ruckusness. They spent the next few months writing and recording what would become their Sophomore album, filled with songs inspired by life through classic horror tales and originally spooky themes entitled We’ll Show You Where the Monsters Are. After two more music videos to precede the album, it was released on August 25th, 2015.

In January 2016, they hit the new year running by releasing their eighth official music video for “Dead Or Alive (For Now).” Later that year, Nic Giordano would officially join Fable Cry on drums, and they would spend the rest of the year playing local and regional shows, festivals, and variety shows.
In 2017 they began writing their third album, a conceptual vampire gangster epic placed in the 1930’s. With an ever expanding sound, they recruited the multi-talented Melody Ryan to assist on keys, flute, guitar, and vocals.

With a colorfully haunting melody and a flourishing sweep of the hand, Fable Cry will weave their strand of tales, inviting you to come along with them and embrace your darker side. They create a wildly unique experience and one that is not to be missed!

Fable: A fictitious narrative or statement. A legendary story of supernatural happenings.

Cry: To scream. To utter a characteristic sound or call. Cry havoc. To give alarm without occasion. Proclamation. A pack of hounds. To cry out with such gusto.

Fire From The Gods Release ‘Narrative Retold’ on Rise Records

Active rock/metal band Fire From The Gods has released Narrative Retold on Rise Records. The full-length album is a re-issue of their 2016 release Narrative and features two new tracks produced by Jonathan Davis of KORN. Listen to the full stream below on the Rise Records YouTube page.

“Folks are so heartless and calloused these days. We forget to feel shit because we are so obsessed with our own existence. Live for the common good of everyone. Do Not remain Voiceless.” – AJ Channer

The band will be promoting the new release all summer long on the Van’s Warped Tour, as well as appearing at Rock On The Range in Columbus, OH this weekend.

Heavy music deserves a heavier message.

Facebook | Twitter | YouTube

That’s what Fire From The Gods deliver on their second full-length album and first for Rise Records, Narrative. Speaking from a platform cast in heavy metal power, hip-hop consciousness, and even a little reggae spirit, the Austin, TX quintet—AJ Channer [vocals], Jameson Teat [guitar], Drew Walker [guitar], Bonner Baker [bass], and Richard Wicander [drums]—urge for change through conveying a story that’s both personal and universal.
That story stems directly from AJ’s life. Born in the Bronx to a single mother of Jamaican descent, he spent his childhood moving between London, New York City, Los Angeles, Norfolk, and even Ghana where he attended middle school. Drawing from this diverse experience, he speaks with unmitigated honesty about the state of the world.

“This album is the personal narrative of a minority man living in major cities and being American,” he explains. “There’s a socio-economic theme throughout the whole record that carries from each song to song. It’s all about the underdog. We’ve all had to fight for everything we have in this band. The political climate in our country is quite racially and socially charged. There are a lot of issues and energy people are expressing along with misguided hate and anger. I want to channel this in music that can resonate. This is where we come from and who we are as a band.”

In order to properly capture this vision, the boys retreated to House of Loud Studios in New Jersey to record with David Bendeth (ParamoreOf Mice & MenBreaking Benjamin). They spent a month in the winter of 2016 tracking what would become Narrative.

“There’s no crying in Bendeth’s dojo,” laughs AJ. “He really pushed us, and we grew in a short period of time. The band takes on a life of its own with this record.”

That growth stands pervasive in songs like “Excuse Me.” The vocalist spits a frenetic and frantic verse over a buzzsaw guitar and seesawing groove before eventually breaking into an airy dancehall break complete with a reggae-style plea, “Excuse me, Mr. Officer…”

“The essence of ‘Redemption Song’ influenced the hook,” he goes on. “I’m speaking my mind about the fact that people judge you based on looks. Police will violate constitutional rights because of it, and the law of the land makes individuals submit.”

Meanwhile, “Public Enemy” lands a one-two punch of aggressive screaming and a soaring unshakable refrain. “It’s a call-to-arms to be heard,” sighs AJ. “I’m targeting the epitome of tyranny on the lyrics.”

On the other end of the spectrum, “End Transmission” sputters out into a celestial hum, balancing an airy hum with pummeling crash. “You cut off the tether to reality and imagine yourself flying amongst the satellites and stars,” he reveals. “We equate the heavens with tranquility and peacefulness although space is very stark and it’s cold. It’s not being a hero to save the world, but finding that hero within yourself.”

Fire From The Gods have quietly built a rabid fan base through tireless touring across the United States. They’ve shared national bills with the likes of August Burns Red and festival stages alongside Slipknot, Bring Me The Horizon, Judas Priest, Killswitch Engage, and more at KNOTFEST two years in a row and with Motionless In White and Underoath at South By So What. Now, their Narrative is on display in 2016.

“I want people to feel empowered when they listen to this record,” AJ leaves off. “Come out of the experience knowing somebody thinks like you. You’re not alone.”

An-Ten-Nae Releases Deep Bass, Full Length Album, ‘Medicine’

San Francisco based An-Ten-Nae releases new full length album, Medicine, and gets huge feature in The Huffington Post, Medicine debuted at #25 on the iTunes Electronic list, just under Flume and Bonobo, as well as top 10 on Bandcamp.

An-Ten-Nae has also revealed “Wildflower In Bloom,” an intricately layered masterpiece with deep underpinnings, and another reason the album Medicine is being so widely received.

Medicine is the 3rd album from Bay Area electronic music pioneer An-ten-nae, and pushes forth a new Deep Bass sound emerging from the west coast. Intricately balanced deep grooves flow under a cinematic landscape fused with deep captivating melodies and meticulous production values. The track listing itself leads you into a world where sound has deeper meanings. Medicine leaves behind the familiar Big Room EDM sounds found in over abundance in dance music today. Instead this album takes bass in a deeper, more thoughtful direction which can be compared to the difference between Big room versus Deep House. Polyrhythmic grooves accentuate deep, old school UK Dubstep bass layers woven with 808s in a modern aesthetic, that is quite unique and refreshing.

Bubbles Erotica Releases Official Music Video for “Cloak And Dagger” Off of Debut, Self-Titled Album

Chicago based alternative rock band Bubbles Erotica are ready to re-ignite the flames of the ’90s alternative rock revolution with their debut, self-titled album, which is out NOW! Drawing from such diverse influences as System Of A Down, Nirvana, and Queens Of The Stone Age, the quartet’s sound is quickly gaining momentum with broadly glowing reviews. Originally premiered on Paste Magazine, the second single and video, “Cloak And Dagger,” is the epitome of Alternative Rock–the alternative to radio, to mainstream, and the repetitive–harnessing the innovative creativity and passion that the music industry needs.

It’s not every day you have something hit your ear holes that blows you away; whether it’s the over-saturation of method radio rock or the paralyzing effect of trying to pick through everything available online, it’s hard to find that genuine wow-factor. Chicago, however, appears to be holding a brilliant musical gem in the form of Bubbles Erotica, an alternative rock quartet who’s geared to pick up where the great rock revolution of the ’90s left off. Evoking equal parts System Of A Down,Queens of the Stone Age, and Nirvana, these midwest newcomers are composing and creating music that will appeal to both the mainstream and the underground rock scenes. Today they’re dropping their debut, self-titled album, which has already been garnering massive praise for its raw creativity as well as a math-rock precision worthy of a more seasoned band.Paste Magazine

Bubbles Erotica Track List:
1. Cicada Arcade
2. Humbaba
3. Under your Wing
4. Operation Condor
5. Wisconsin Discotheque
6. Home is Where the Dark is
7. All I want
8. Cloak & Dagger
9. Ghost
10. Make it Out Alive

Let’s get a mad scientist, leave him alone in their labratory and see what kind of insane creation they can come up with! Bubbles Erotica, out of Chicago, Illinois, is proceeding to rewrite the script as they release their self-titled record independently on May 9th!Madness To Creation

After listening to this work of genius I can tell you that there are a number of brilliant songs on this album. Songs such as “Humbaba” and “Cloak & Dagger” are both backside kicking songs that have the potential to conquer moshpits and alternative nightclubs for years to come. Where as songs like “Op C” are the sort of tracks you’d hear on the O.S.T of a major Hollywood blockbuster or a fantastic indie series.925 Rebellion

I have and will always support anything that is Chicago. This album from Bubbles Erotica just makes me proud. Giving it a few listens, I found myself gravitating to a few of the tracks. Track #5 “Wisco Disco” (Wisconsin Discotheque) is just a fun filled rock fusion of dance grooves that will get your ass up while throwing your fist in the air uncontrollably. The hypnotic beat had me just enjoying every second of this song and as Depeche Mode would say, “I just can’t get enough…”Unrated Magazine

In today’s cut-throat music scene, it’s rare to find a band as self-sufficient, forward-thinking and as conscious about their art as Bubbles Erotica. In 2010, members Philip Hasso, Bradley Springer, Michael Hasso, and and Colin Stone came together to bring something new to the Rock Genre. From the constantly shifting sounds they create to the lush cover art of their two albums to their expansive, mind-bending videos: this is a band that, while eager to stand-out, doesn’t seem pre-occupied with waiting for someone else to get them heard. They’re forever creating, always two steps ahead of anyone else in their genre, locally or otherwise.
