VATTICA Release Official Music Video for “Criminal”

CRIMINAL albumart

Hollywood based Alternative Rock Band VATTICA has released the official music video for their single, “Criminal.” Directed by Prentice and filmed and edited on location in Los Angeles, CA, “Criminal” is a direct criticism of the current political turmoil in American politics.

Player

“The word ‘Criminal’ really describes this administration perfectly”, says Alexander (vocals, guitar). “From the way they ‘won’ the election, to their active and purposeful targeting of the Latinx, BIPOC and LGBTQIA communities, to their enthusiastic and unapologetic support of blatantly racist, sexist and misogynistic rhetoric, to their ravenous erosion of any laws that restrict pollution, they are the epitome of corrupt. They are dangerous and need to all be voted out. For this video we tried to focus on the fact that this is all really happening now, this isn’t some distant historical event, and that it’s up to all of us to correct the course that these liars and thieves, these fascists, have set our country on.”

VATTICA square

VATTICA is an alternative rock band from Los Angeles, California. Formed in early 2014, the band quickly built an impressive local following in Southern California, including on the infamous Sunset Strip, performing at legendary venues such as The Viper Room, The Roxy Theatre, The Echo and The Troubadour. VATTICA’s bombastic and energetic live show caught the attention of Another Century/Century Media Records, who promptly offered the band a recording contract.

VATTICA then set about refining their sound, which quickly coalesced into an arena-ready style reminiscent of alternative chart-toppers such as Muse, Starset, PVRIS, Our Lady Peace and Imagine Dragons.

Next, VATTICA entered the studio to begin recording their debut album at The Mix Room in Burbank, CA with veteran producer Ben Grosse (Breaking Benjamin, Daughtry, Filter, Red, Starset, Vertical Horizon, Third Eye Blind, Thirty Seconds To Mars).

In 2017 VATTICA finished their debut album, entitled “WE SURVIVE”. At the same time, Another Century was absorbed by Sony RED Music which ultimately resulted in VATTICA deciding to part ways with the label. VATTICA then joined forces with new management and released their first single, “Remember To Breathe”, on their own label in May 2018.

“Remember To Breathe” premiered on ALT105.3 (KITS) (and has been added to rotation on the station’s local music show SOUNDCHECK), as well as the iTunes “Alternative Music” page. It has also made it into Spotify’s “Discover Weekly” algorithm, amassing over 60k+ plays to date. The lyric video for “Remember To Breathe” received over 10k+ views on its first day and was promptly picked up by the popular YouTube channel spaceuntravel, where it has amassed over 40K views.

Music Industry Veterans Look to Reward Fans, Sites, and Musicians with Revolutionary CNote!

Image

In 2018, two music industry veterans had an idea. Struggling with a way to get a web site back in the pole position in its category, suddenly one of them blurted out “you say you have loyal fans, lets pay them for their patronage using a crypto token.” They both thought this idea was so brilliant that it took shape immediately and within about 90 days, CNOTE token was fully operational.

To see an innovative utility token in the saturated market of ICO’s seems at times difficult. Many crypto companies tell me as soon as you come up with a good idea, several others pop up as if someone was reading your mind. But this token proudly stands alone – that is for sure.

To get started earning CNOTE, head over to http://cnotemusic.net and signup. It takes less than 20 seconds. You will immediately receive 6 CNOTE deposited into your account with lots of ways to earn more.

This token provides fans of music blogs of any kind, payment in CNOTEs for: “proof of interaction” for reading, commenting, writing, photography and more. These CNOTEs can be redeemed for official band merchandise and gifts, cashed out as Bitcoin or Ethereum, or held onto for potential gains.
In addition to fans, 8 other entities in the music ecosystem will have 8 different ways to earn CNOTEs in future versions.

And it will not stop there, soon this token will be launched by publishers who serve content in any category from world news to weird gifts. It’s important to note that nothing happens until a publisher buys CNotes. This is truly a Cryto whose value is driven by its own commerce. Of the top 500 cryptocurrencies currently on the market, less than 50 have working products. CNotes differs in that we are fully operational. The idea is brilliant in its simplicity and for that reason a full patent is underway.

“I think we have a double-dose of creativity to shock the world with in our Green Day/Poison mashup, ‘Good Riddance, Fallen Angel.’ Not only did we get the two songs to fit so well together, but recreating the videos in a way that completes both storylines even blew our own minds!” – Chip DiMonick (Vocals/Guitar)

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

One of the original crossover bands of the 1980s – A crossover band that transformed into one of the most technical Thrash Metal bands of their time.

As Don Kaye of Kerrang once said, they’re “too damn fast!”

Marshall Beck Resigns as Reign of Vengeance Frontman

Death Metallers, Reign of Vengeance, announce new vocalist and new EP The Final Aeon For All Humans.

Reign in Vengeance announces their new vocalist The Illuminated Man. Shrouded in mystery, The Illuminated Man will be replacing former vocalist Marshall Beck. Before stepping down Beck had this to say…

“I’d have liked to continue on with Reign of Vengeance. However, given the material of this EP it seems better that I step down as Reign of Vengeance’s frontman and hand over the responsibilities to an entity which has been fully rehabilitated by the ever expanding government and state. He seems to be better suited for this job and band now.”

Enter the Illuminated Man: He is a Master of Finance, a Master of Brutality, and a Master of Psychological Warfare upon the common populace of all humans which he (like the government) believes to be nothing more than consumers and vermin filth...

The Illuminated Man’s vocals appear on Reign of Vengeance’s upcoming EP The Final Aeon For All Humans.
