Hogan’s Goat Release New Single “Pennymade” Off Upcoming Debut LP

Nashville, TN based, Hard Rock Band Hogan’s Goat has released the second single, “Pennymade”, off of their debut, self-titled album. Due out July 18th, Hogan’s Goat was self-produced, mixed by Alex Gilson and Nathan Jensen at Gold Cassette and mastered by Tommy Dorsey.

“Pennymade is one of the more straightforward tracks from the album. It illustrates our Rock N’ Roll flavor, while keeping pace with some of the heavier songs. That’s just my two cents.” – John Salmon (Vocals)

Empyrean Throne Releases Lyric Video “And None Shall Rise” From Upcoming Debut Album

Los Angeles, CA Symphonic Blackend Metal Artists Empyrean Throne have released the Official Lyric Video for the single “And None Shall Rise” from their upcoming debut album Chaosborne. The lyric video was produced by Scott Rudd (Opeth, Fallujah, Fear Factory).

Chaosborne was produced by Mick Kenney (Anaal Nathrakh), features artwork by Valadislav Kutusov, and will be released August 11th on M-Theory Audio (the new label from Marco Barbieri ex Century Media President, Nuclear Blast).

Pre-Order Chaosborne

“And None Shall Rise is not only the subsequent single from our upcoming debut album ‘Chaosborne’, but the opening salvo in the second act of the record’s story ark. Lovecraft enthusiasts will recognize much of the themes presented within the song, including the barren setting of ice covered dreamworld Polaris. Narratively the somber and treacherous atmosphere of Polaris was a perfect companion for the bombastic arrangement of And None Shall Rise. At this point in the album’s story, our main character, a knights templar named Mathias, is locked in a battle of wills with beings of the Lovecraftian pantheon. His ideals, sacred truths, and feeble view of the world around him has been fragmented, like a broken mirror that further pains his sanity as he tries to rearrange the pieces. However, with this suffering comes illumination and the awakening of a deeper power within. Everyone experiences agony, but it is within these trials that we are able to unlock hidden parts of our being capable of great feats, strength, and resolve. We hope that you enjoy listening to And None Shall Rise. Ever vigilant disciples! “- Andrew Knudsen (Vocals)

Insatia Release Newest Single “We Are The Grey” Off of Upcoming ‘Phoenix Aflame’

American Symphonic power metal group INSATIA has released the second single, “We Are The Grey”, off of their upcoming album, Phoenix Aflame, due out June 23, 2017 via Pitch Black Records.  “We Are The Grey” and Phoenix Aflame are available to pre-order HERE now.

Vocalist Zoë Federoff comments that the new track “was actually the first song we had written for this album – originally I had constructed it to be a ballad, but as we started working on it, it became more straight up power metal. I don’t like discussing my lyrics in too much depth with certain songs, because it’s fun to see people apply their own meanings to them. This is definitely one of those songs.”

Fathom Farewell Release Their New Video “Take This World”

Rock/Bluescore artists Fathom Farewell release the video for their song “Take This World”.

We put a whole lot of time into this song and video combined. Fathom Farewell was a somewhat different band when we initially recorded the song, yet throughout the process of building this work we have the pleasure of presenting to you today, we have grown into something that we believe will make a difference for people craving a response to the environment in which we currently reside. Our aim with this video is to let people know that we are all in this together, we all suffer, we all crave the next step or something that can truly satisfy whatever gap may be left inside of us, and we all inevitably struggle together.

“Take This World” is off Fathom Farewell’s new EP Decomposition which is out now.

Darling Down Release Official Music Video for “Collide”

Battle Creek, MI hard rock band Darling Down have released the official video for their single, “Collide”, featuring a solo by Clint Lowery of Sevendust, off of their newest album  Never Tell.  “Collide” was directed by Travis and Samantha Ross at RipJaw Media.

Every video we do is a challenge to outdo the last. I feel that “Collide” is a mini movie with elements of a grade A thriller with on par Hollywood cinematic value – our acting, however, could use some work 🙂 – Ryan Hudson (Drums)

With their symphonically powerful sound and an arsenal of brand new material, mid-Michigan’s Darling Down is prepared to show the world that they are ready to stake their artistic claim in the territory of modern rock.

The band, an outstanding female fronted four piece, has a synergistic effect among its members: Amanda Legault’s clear, strong vocals that range from powerfully compelling to hauntingly sweet, Dustin Claud’s driving and dynamic guitar riffs, Nathan Simmon’s thunderous bass lines, and Ryan Hudson’s tight musicianship on drums. Committed to lyrically thoughtful and melodically engrossing songwriting with powerful hooks, Darling Down is distinctive in today’s musical arena. With lyrically relatable songs full of enough edginess, passion and real life to appeal to a wide audience, Darling Down’s songs are catchy, intriguing, and heavy; beautifully sung, constructed and arranged. Sonically driving, with soaring vocals and harmonies, the deep lyrics are sometimes juxtaposed with eerily strong, pretty vocals and heavy guitars, as on their earlier recording, “Revenge is Sweet Like Cherries.”

Fast forward to 2014, Darling Down is not holding anything back with their second full length release, “Never Tell,” produced by the nationally acclaimed producer / engineer / mixer Chuck Alkazian (Soundgarden, Trust Company, Pop Evil) and recorded at Pearl Sound Studios. “Never Tell,” which was released on 7/22/2014, has garnered a sizable amount of industry buzz. A stellar collection of songs, creatively written and with spectacular pieces of orchestration, Darling Down and their producer have created an album full of great musicianship, mesmerizing rhythms and melodies, and exciting, innovative collaborations with accomplished outside artists. “Never Tell” features guest appearances by Clint Lowery of SevendustVinnie Dombrowski of SpongeStephen Richards of Taproot, and Brett Hestla of Dark New Day.

Ramping up for the expansion of their touring in addition to their current live shows on schedule, following the release of “Never Tell” Darling Downcontinues to increase their live show radius throughout North America. In recent years, Darling Down has developed a loyal fan base with their passionate music and high energy live performances, and grabbed the attention of audiences throughout the Midwest. The band has performed alongside many notable acts including Theory of a DeadmanNonpointTaprootSmile Empty SoulPop EvilRedRaFraming HanleySaving AbelEvans BlueSalivaHed PEMushoomhead, and many more.
Darling Down, fresh off the release of “Never Tell,” will be one to watch as they share their new music and unique show with an even wider scope of music fans throughout the country. Be on the lookout for upcoming tour dates!
