Shokran started as a Groove/Djent/Oriental Metal solo project by Dmitry Demyanenko in 2012, with the debut EP Sixth Sense. In 2014, the solo project transformed into a full-time band, and Shokran released its debut album Supreme Truth followed by extensive Russian tours & critical acclaim. As the group found their footing, there was a change in the line-up, and they were joined by their current singer, Andrew Ivashchenko, and bass player Valery Yushkevich.

The band was set to release their 2nd album entitled Exodus in 2015 but delayed the release after receiving interest from several record labels including Sumerian Records. During the negotiations, no agreements were ultimately reached, and the band decided to release Exodus on their own in September 2016. It was a conceptual work, that describes the 10 Plagues of Egypt, each song on Exodus tells about each Plague. The record took the band to an altogether higher level. Shokran gained new fans around the world, reunited with their original bass player Rodion Shevchenko, completed several more tours and began to compose their latest album ETHEREAL, which was released on February 8th, 2019 and debuted #2 on the U.S iTunes Top 100 Heavy metal albums.

Player

“‘Diethanasia’ is the embodiment of the fury and fire that so powerfully defines Aftermath. In a darkened room with minimalist spotlights cast upon each member thrashing in a foggy soundstage, the quick cuts, muscular riffs, and furrowed brows by director Davo create an unrelenting visual experience, perfectly complimenting the frenetic energy of Aftermath.” – Metal Injection

Another Day’s Armor is a Rock / Alternative Metal band from New York. Combining the huge, mainstream sound of arena rock with borderline metal instrumental work, the band started to create a buzz for themselves with debut singles “Reflections” and “Simple As Sin.” Coming off the momentum of the previous two singles, the band has been working on their debut EP which is set to release mid summer 2018.

Coming up in a time where very few bands put any emphasis into their image and persona, ADA pride themselves on standing out from the crowd both visually, and musically. With an image reminiscent of a time where rock was on top of the music world, Another Day’s Armor refuses to be just another “faceless” band, wanting their fans to feel connected to every member: Logan Manganelli – Vocals, Nick Palma – Lead Guitar, Ryan Bicknell – Rhythm Guitar, Joe Grunski – Bass, and Alec Keshishian – Drums.

Another Day’s Armor aren’t just a band, they are a movement for the future of rock.

BLOODYWOOD Releases Official Music Video for “Endurant”

screen33

New Delhi based Indian Folk Metal band BLOODYWOOD has released the official music video for their single, “Endurant.” The viral metal trio first caught their US fans’ attention with their metal rendition of the Indian folk song “Ari Ari,” but has developed a sustained base of hard core followers with blistering original tracks fusing traditional Indian instrumentation with brutal guitars and mixed vocal stylings.

Player

“‘Endurant’ is a song for those who’ve faced or continue to face bullying in any aspect of life. We wanted to be as realistic and practical as possible with our message, which is why the song urges to endure and come out stronger rather than retaliate or fight back with force. The video, while maintaining the message of the song, also tries to establish that bullies are not another breed.” – Karan Katiyar
