band with logo

October 18, 2018 – Chicago based Metal Band BEDLEM, founded by ex TRIVIUM touring powerhouse PAUL WANDTKE, has released their first single, “Epidemic,” off of their upcoming debut LP BACK TO BEDLEM.
Bedlem is a bombastic display of groove via Joey Brassal’s catchy guitar style and Paul Wandtke’s monstrous drum kit abilities complimented by Brian Ahern’s bass lines. Their melodic hooks are stringed in with poetic lyric content via vocalist Mike Petrasek’s lyrical vision. There’s no doubt that this quartet from Chicago, IL is the next up and coming act from the Windy City.

Player

“I had to make a decision, move to Florida and continue drumming for Trivium or stay at home and take a chance on something. I couldn’t be more thrilled about our debut album, Back to Bedlem. There’s nothing more thrilling than being in a band with my own brothers. We are literally family. This is not a work for hire situation and it feels so great!” ~ Paul Wandtke

ATCGroupShot3

Phoenix based Rock Band AFTER THE CALM has released the official music video for “Stuck on Repeat.” Directed by Jacob Reynolds (SLAVES, Dead Rabbitts), “Stuck on Repeat” is the band’s 3rd single released in 2018 produced by Matt Good (Asking Alexandria, The Word Alive).

AFTER THE CALM will be performing at the Arizona Humane Society Benefit Show in Scottsdale, AZ on November 10, 2018.

Player

“This single is our strongest of the three songs that we wanted to release this year. We believe ‘Stuck On Repeat’ is the best representation of how our song writing has evolved over time; “All killer and no filler” has been a reoccurring response we’ve received from industry professionals.

This single was brought to it’s fullest potential with the help of producer Matt Good (From First to Last). He has a way of bringing out the best in you while making the recording process an enjoyable experience.
Although it’s message is serious in tone, the song is catchy and will have you jumping to the beat.” – AFTER THE CALM

After the Calm started from a living room jam session on Memorial Day of 2014 with friends Kody Rattler (Drums), David Nuñez (Guitar), and Henry Cota Jr. (Bass). Jonathan Habermacher (Guitar) joined the band shortly after the initial meeting. The search for a singer was long, but with the luck of a Craigslist ad, the band had added Logan Miracle (Vocals) as the final piece to their puzzle.

Their influences range from System of a Down to Blink-182; their sound is often compared to A Day To Remember and Four Year Strong. Some songs will have metal riffs while others tread on the line of pop-punk. There is definitely something for everyone, whether they want to mosh or just jump up and sing along. On October 15th, 2016, After the Calm released their debut EP, Ignis Fatuus, hosting a sold out show at local venue Joe’s Grotto. Their on-stage energy and crowd engagement lead them to opening for international acts such as I See Stars, I Prevail, and WATERPARKS. Their sound and hard work earned them a slot on the final Van’s Warped Tour 18’ in Arizona. Aside from playing shows, the band has worked on giving back to their community by raising money for the Arizona Humane Society through various fundraisers.

JOE SETTINERI Releases Official Music Video for Emotionally Powerful New Single, “Batman Cries”

Joe S Batmann 1500x1500

American Singer/Song-writer JOE SETTINERI has released the official music video for his deeply moving new single, “Batman Cries.” Originally premiered on CELEBMIX, “Batman Cries” was directed by Jared Cordes.

“The new video for BATMAN CRIES explores the inner superhero in us all — the strong, inner-spirit that fights for us and keeps us moving, dreaming, and striving. It’s about the eventuality that even our strongest self needs to be reassured, lifted up, and cheered on. It’s about being down – seriously down – with seemingly no way up and finding that inner strength to go forth. When a superhero is down, it tears us apart, but when that superhero is us, it’s a matter of life and death.” – Joe Settineri

player

“In terms of musicality, “Batman Cries” is a powerful single and Settineri has been able to convey his emotions well. The sincerity that one finds in his lyrics is also visible in his vocals and the music video. The music video is an addition to the conversation around embracing one’s self and Settineri’s song is an interesting take on the concept.” – CELEBMIX

Aftermath Release Official Lyric Video for “Smash Reset Control”

Aftermath Band Photo Tight 2

Chicago based Progressive Thrash Metal Band AFTERMATH has released the official lyric video for “Smash Reset Control,” off of their upcoming LP, There is Something Wrong.

“Smash Reset Control lyrically and musically captures the angst millions feel daily. The system isn’t there to protect them or make their lives better. It’s really there to protect those with the real power. Not the puppets in Congress or the WH. The ones behind the scenes. Time to reset the power structure. The point of this track and the record is to expose the real enemy.”
– Kyriakos “Charlie” Tsiolis

Player

 

Chicago’s favourite progressive thrash sons are back with new material and, on this evidence, those of you expecting the technically adept, progressively-minded Aftermath found on underground 90’s classic Eyes Of Tomorrow will be left wanting. Instead, on “Smash Reset Control” at least, Aftermath circa 2018 are back to being a crossover thrash colossus, thrashin’ hard and fast and forever adorned with a bug-eyed sneer! – WORSHIP METAL

Aftermath Shattered Flag
