“Gravity” is a huge step in a new direction for us as musicians. We tackled a lot of new ideas with this song and couldn’t be more excited to share it with the world. Sometimes life can get heavy, but with a little company and togetherness, we can defy the weight inside. – Mike Kenway (Guitar/Vocals)

Music has always provided a way of dealing with frustration, with anger. It’s a way to battle depression and anxiety, fear, and doubt. It’s our way to speak out about what is felt to be wrong, what is felt to be unfair.
In 2015, InGhosts released their debut full-length record Still Breathing to fulfill all of these needs. From speaking to the need of music and the community alike in “Home” to surviving the battle within yourself and suppression in the title track “Everon” vocalist Tyrus Denton leaves nothing behind closed doors.

The album was produced by Josh Schroeder (King 810, The Plot in You, The Color Morale, In Hearts Wake) who pushed the guys to their limits in every way possible to make the project everything they needed it to be at the time.

More recently. InGhosts paid Josh another visit to give Still Breathing a face-lift for the Deluxe release. This combined with some B-Sides from previous work with Joey Sturgis and a challenging cover of Maroon 5’s hit “Animals” makes the revised copy a must have for any Post-Hardcore friend.
New things are always on the horizon, until then come out and see them on the road!

Zardonic Revelation

Internationally renown Electronic Music Producer ZARDONIC has released the official music video for “Revelation,” the third reveal from his newest LP, Become, out 9/28/2018 on Entertainment One. The Venezuelan born producer once again showcases his unique mastery of bass heavy electronic production infused with heavy rock and metal, and brings the experience to life with a darkly aggressive music video for “Revelation”.

“Revelation” is a personal statement inspired by the people who took stances both in favor and against Zardonic, both as myself and as my music project. It’s a celebration of the best revenge anyone can have against backstabbers, bad-mouthers, copycats and hypocrites: your own success. – ZARDONIC

BECOME is a very personal album. It is a journey of change, transition, resistance, self-reflection and evolution.

“No Mas Revolucion” depicts a cold realization about the big picture of the Venezuelan Crisis, as seen from an outside perspective which was granted to me as I left to live in the United States and now Germany.

“Revelation” is a personal statement inspired by the people who took stances both in favor and against Zardonic, both as myself and as my music project. It’s a celebration of the best revenge anyone can have against backstabbers, bad-mouthers, copycats and hypocrites: your own success.

“Black And White” is pure, blind rage. The overflowing power that becomes a fighter ready for the ring. American Grim was perfect for this, because Ryan Grim is a fighter himself. They are a mammoth of a band, and I love them like family. It made me very happy to have them on the record!

“Takeover” is a reminder to the world that before EDM and Rock / Metal became the trend it is today, we were pursuing this sound since 2004, and there were also many before us all the way back to the 60s. It made perfect sense then, that The Qemists were the right act for this collaboration. We pay homage to the great artists before us, those who made it big, those unsung, Pendulum, The Prodigy, Celldweller, Ministry, Linkin Park, and all other great artists that contributed to bring Electronic fused Rock to the mainstream, and as the scene takes shape, you better be ready to brace for Takeover!

“Children Of Tomorrow” is an anthem for the resistance. For the people who have raised their voice as the system continues to oppress us. Many sadly took this fight to the streets and violence, leading eventually to riots and their deaths. This is our homage to them. Coppa did a wonderful job with the vocals and lyrics. He is a truly illuminated guy and one of the most genuine artists I’ve had the pleasure to work with. I’d gladly do an entire record with him!

“Before The Dawn” to me is a fanboy’s dream come true. Celldweller was the one artist I heard that blew my mind with his seamless mix of Metal and Electronic Dance Music back in 2003 when he released his Self-Titled debut album. Working with him is an absolute honor, especially because his vocals and lyrics fit the album concept wonderfully well. “Alone I pray for something I know will surely come, is this the dark before the dawn? I hear the voice that’s calling, says not to be afraid, fears that surround me fade away…”

“Follow The Light” continues on to follow the voice in Before The Dawn: “We reunite as the worlds collide. Fear is an illusion. We are your salvation. By eventide our journey begins, so heed the call and follow the light”. The worlds collide is a perfect analogy to our manipulated society. It pains me to see this, because I see the results of it in every aspect of our lives. How through fear people are led to create enemies out of fellow humans, and are capable of the worst atrocities against them. I have no idea if this will ever end, but I know I don’t want to be a part of the collide, so I follow the light above. The light that lets me see with real eyes what is going once you look at the big picture.

“Transhuman” is the ascension of our consciousness into a higher state of being. It is a slow, painful, confusing and chaotic process that requires breaking through paradigms deeply ingrained in our minds since the moment we are born. I took this concept to madman Jorgen Munkeby of the norwegian Blackjazz band SHINING who contributed with the most insane saxophone execution I have ever heard. He is an absolute genius!

“Army Of One” is the loud voice of frustration, anger and fear pulling back. A fear covered by a false fearlessness, for a man who truly has no fear has no need to attack or fight back. It’s easy to fall for it. The relentlessness of anger is very seductive. Pure, raw, unrestrained, and potentially devastating if not under control. Philosophical whatnots aside, I think this will make a great track for First Person Shooters!

“Monster” was the perfect counterpart for Army Of One. Originally a demo project by fellow producer Mario Malke who is an insanely talented Hard Techno producer, sound designer and drummer. He did it together with band APE. I liked how the lyrics say “the voices, we don’t need them at all” and “we’ve seen it all before”. Leaving anything behind always comes with a lot of pain, but once you’re on the other side, everything makes sense.

“Libertadores” is the final mourning of the dying world. It’s walking forward knowing that the pain might always linger, but there is no way to go but forward. To portray this, I based the song in the recent events of the Venezuelan rebellion, which ended in the assassination of Oscar Pérez with the use of a Rocket Launcher. Looking at this is something that still sends chills down my spine. How is it possible that men could carry such acts? What were their true motives? It’s not like we’re strangers to these atrocities as they have been very well documented, but one thing is to read a book or watch a documentary and another is to have it hit close to home. It is my farewell to the fight, my apology to the resistance and my homage to those who fell. I hope I never have to deal with it ever again.

WORLDWIDE PANIC Release Official Music Video for “Party”

 Party Cover Art

LA Based Heavy Metal Band WORLDWIDE PANIC has released the Diego Gonzales directed official music video for their newest single, “Party.”

“In my perspective it was a challenge to us as a band as well as in respect to finding a director. There are no shortages of videographers and directors in Los Angeles County. I know a lot of great ones that are total visionaries and could have easily shot this video and it would have just been another day at the office for them and I didn’t want that. I wanted to find someone who had the same passion for the song that we had. The moment I spoke to and met with Diego and showed him the song and saw his reaction we immediately started storyboarding with each other. It was not an easy task to complete in any regard. We wanted something extremely specific that was based on true life events that occurred in my life. Finding the actors, booking a sound stage, finding a crew, getting props, and be lengthy processes to deal with. A week to the date, Worldwide Panic, myself and Diego spent four hours at a professional soundstage filming the band performance and that weekend we had casted the actors who take this dream and turn it into a nightmare. The scenes portrayed in this video most actually happened to me. It is still difficult for me to watch this and not feel empathy for the actor on screen. I could not believe that those things happened to me in real life and now I am where I am living a happy fulfilling life. I think the rawness captured in this video encapsulates many life lessons I had to learn the hard way. Even with the dark subject matter of the song and video I like that it is done in a fun way and makes something that was very painful entertaining and fun and teaches people to avoid the many pitfalls that exist in society. It is with great pleasure I present, Party!” – Lane Steele (Bass / Vocals)

Player 2

 

“On this track we had the pleasure of having my good friend Aaron Nordstrom help produce the vocals. He had this to say, “I’ve known Lane Steele for many years since we were in school together. I’ve seen him evolve and work very hard for awhile and find his voice as a musician. I had the pleasure of working on the song “Party” and enjoyed it very much. It was a smooth workflow and resulted in a great song. Take a listen and be sure to catch them on the road with Flaw this fall.”
– Aaron Nordstrom (Gemini Syndrome)

CAMU Releases Official Music Video for “Empire State of Sound”!

empire2

Hawaii based, NAKED front-man CAMU has returned after an 8 year hiatus with the explosive new single and official music video, “Empire State of Sound.” Self-directed, “Empire State of Sound” was shot on the street of New York City and pays homage to both the city and the Finland born artist’s experiences.

Player 1

“I wrote & recorded the first version of ‘Empire State of Sound’ while I was living in East Village New York after NAKED had broken up after our second US tour. The song is not only a celebration of the good times I’ve had in New York, but a shout out, to the energy, motivation & answers those city streets gave me during dark, unforgettable & trying times. So much can happen in a New York minute, so to say. For me, New York will forever hold a very special place in my heart. It is where I found myself, the love of my life & some of the best friends & experiences that I will cherish forever, not to mention I’ve recorded a LOT of music there & it is the first place I was able to explore & express different sides of my music style. ‘Empire State of Sound’ is a window to my NYC experience & my very own NYC anthem. My ode to NYC.
Fast forward to a few months ago, I suddenly started rearranging the song in Hawaii, out of the blue I sent it to the guys in my old band NAKED, because life is too short and I felt it was time to share my music again. The final version of the song was actually recorded by us in 4 different countries simultaneously. Voila. ‘Empire State of Sound.’

With the video, I wanted to create something personal & authentic, rather than your generic video of a bunch dudes playing on top of a building… I lived in NYC & I walked those streets every single day for years, so I know it. I know the street hustlers, the deli owners, the restaurant workers, bartenders etc, & they all know me! There’s even a shot in the video of a street hustler I used to give money too everyday, it wasn’t planned & it was epic! The video was purposely shot with a bunch of cuts to really emphasize the fast & ever changing pace of the city. Everything in the video is of my hood & old stomping grounds, plus a few quintessential NYC spots in the area. I actually directed the video & a friend of mine, Kevin Vonesper, filmed it for me. I had two other photographers lined up to actually meet me in NYC and shoot the video originally but they both fell through on the same day haha. Kevin and I did some NYC hustling and did the whole thing in 2 hours & I added in a couple extra takes then edited the whole thing together on my laptop in Hawaii. It was really awesome to see the whole thing come together, it was the first video I directed & edited.” – CAMU

Part 1: The story so far

After a 8 year hiatus from releasing music, the first thing I will be releasing is a trilogy of songs & their corresponding videos (“Empire State Of Sound” being the first of the trilogy) that unfold the journey of my life throughout these last 8 years, musically & personally. Once NAKED disbanded after 10 years, 4 albums and two world tours I had had enough, the final straw came when our manager Bill Aucoin (KISS & Billy Idol) passed away, everything fell apart, I left, I hung it up and I disappeared. NAKED had been my band since I was a teenager. I’m grown now & I have 2 children, & spend most of my time in Hawaii. A lot has changed obviously, but I’ve written & recorded a lot of music during my time living away from Finland. I’ve had so many life altering & mind blowing experiences, so I’ve got a lot of new song material & the trilogy songs reflect and tells my story. This new release is all about me coming out & being me, Camu. Naked is still my band & will be touring as my band when we do our summer tour in 2019, but this is pure Camu music the way I have always envisioned it. As the new music being released ventures further from the straight rock music we used to play back in the day, we will be releasing it under a new better fitting new name, CAMU.

BHS Cover 3 CC

 

Austin, TX based Rock Band BLACK HEART SAINTS has released the official music video for the title track off of their 2017 released LP, Alive, which features a live performance of the foursome live.

 bhs-1

Dangerous & dirty, with a distinct groove steeped in classic rock, yet with a modern edge, Black Heart Saints gives fans exactly what they want – rock god vocals catapulted over explosive, memorable riffs – leaving legions of the rock ‘n’ roll faithful yearning for more.

After debuting at SXSW in 2014, this powerhouse quartet has been building a solid reputation as a support act for national touring bands such as Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, Sevendust, Pop Evil, Nonpoint, Coheed and Cambria, Filter, POD, The Toadies, and more.

The soaring vocals of front-man Josh Ross have drawn comparisons to Myles Kennedy and Chris Cornell. While the band is influenced by the likes of Mötley Crüe, Guns ‘N Roses, and other legendary Hard Rock acts, the commanding presence of Black Heart Saints’ live show brandishes an updated take on the genre.

Quickly conquering some of the biggest stages and festivals in the United States, Black Heart Saints has built an impressive resume, and has been recognized as one of the nation’s top emerging rock acts:

– Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Headliner
– Austin Chronicle Music Awards: Top 10 Best New Bands
– Austin Music Foundation Artist of the Month, 2017
– San Antonio’s Fiesta Oyster Bake Headliner
– SXSW Performer
– Buffalo Trace Battle of the Bands Grand Prize Winner
– ESPN X Games Austin Performer

In 2014, Black Heart Saints represented their hometown at the ESPN X Games in Austin. 2015 kicked off with key performances during South by Southwest Festival, Texas Rockfest, and Fiesta Oyster Bake in San Antonio. The band also went back to the studio to record a string of upcoming singles produced by Omar Vallejo at Austin’s renowned 512 Studios.

After debuting their first official music video for the hit single “Touch The Sky” on MTV, VEVO, and YouTube, Black Heart Saints is poised to launch a memorable international career with ambitions to dominate stages across the globe. Half-way through 2016, the band gained nationwide airplay on Sirius XM’s Octane and Faction channels.

In 2017, the band received two major accolades: Black Heart Saints was chosen as Austin Music Foundation’s Artist of the Month, and received a spot in the top 10 Best New Bands in Austin Chronicle’s Austin Music Awards for 2016-2017.

The band’s first full-length release – ALIVE – was soon followed by the Road to Sturgis Tour 2017, which put Black Heart Saints’ charismatic live performance to the test when the band took the stage at the world-renowned motorcycle rally, attended by over 500,000 bikers from all around the globe.

Foreshadowing a successful 2018, Black Heart Saints embarked on an extensive tour to the West Coast beginning in January, which included a highlight performance at the legendary Viper Room in West Hollywood, California. Throughout the summer, the band was tapped to support some of the biggest names in rock — both new and old, including Steel Panther, Dokken, Jackyl, as well as upcoming arena acts Blacktop Mojo and Joyous Wolf. After a successful onslaught of summer shows, Black Heart Saints will enter the studio this fall to record an upcoming record that is destined to be a chart-topper.

LULLWATER Releases Stunning Cover of PEARL JAM’s “Release”

Lullwater Poster Nirvana Style 2

Athens, GA based alternative rock band LULLWATER has released the official music video for their cover of PEARL JAM’s “Release,” off of the 1991 hit album TEN. Originally premiered on Loudwire, “Release” features live Footage with Dave Krusen (Pearl Jam, Candlebox) and Kevin Martin (Candlebox), and was recorded at London Bridge Studios in Seattle, WA, where TEN was originally recorded, with engineering and mixing by Justin Davis.

Player

“The entire experience of recording Pearl Jam’s ‘Release’ in London Bridge Studios was so surreal. Pearl Jam is one of my favorite bands and to cover that song in the same room as they did, was very emotional for me. I had no idea that a couple of years later we would be performing it live with Dave Krusen and Kevin Martin on the Candlebox tour; it’s such an odd and incredible feeling of living and experiencing the moments we’ve made because of ‘Release.’ It’s by far the coolest thing that’s ever happened to me as a musician. Thinking back to when I was in my adolescent years playing that song over and over and then one day to be performing it live with the original drummer, is simply crazy for me. ‘Release’ has a special place in my heart and is one of my favorite songs to play live.” – John Strickland (Vocals/Guitar)

lullwater-album-cover

For more than a decade, alt rockers Lullwater have been blazing their way to the top of the industry thanks to their gritty, Southern-infused sound and straight-up, raw performances.

Formed in 2007 in Athens, GA, the foursome was born from the indelible mark that the godfathers of grunge left on music. The convergence of this inspiration, mixed with a healthy helping of swagger, defines this critically acclaimed alternative rock band.

The group released its debut, self-titled album in 2012 to solid reviews and were immediately invited to join some of the biggest tours that same year, as well as had the single “Albatross” featured on Sirius XM Octane Radio. Since that time, Lullwater has spent the majority of their career on the road sharing the stage with such A-list acts as Candlebox, Theory of a Deadman, Flyleaf, Passafire, Amaranthe, Butcher Babies, and more. The band released their critically acclaimed sophomore album, Revival, in 2015, followed by a live EP, The Seattle Sessions, in 2017.

Voodoo, their latest effort and arguably their best work to date, was recorded at the end of 2017 in New Orleans at Marigny Studios by Swedish producer and engineer Jakob Herrmann, co-produced/engineered by Justin Davis, and mixed by Jakob Herrmann at top floor studios, is scheduled for a Winter 2018 release; this record promises an even bigger, more explosive sound that will shake you to your core.

“Every hour wounds, but the last one kills.” – Anonymous
The new EP titled Fragile Machine to be released on July 6th, 2018, explores the questions of what comes next in human evolution. What does it mean to be a human, if consciousness can be stored in a machine?
The artwork depicts an enormous server cube floating in space, after the technological singularity, which contains mankind’s digitized minds living forever in an infinite dream created from code. The material christened ‘Scorecore’ by the band, ranges in dynamics and will resonate with fans familiar with heavy weights such as Soilwork, Amaranthe, and In Flames.

Embracing the mentality of a collective art project, the core members–ex-Divinity guitarist Alan Sacha Laskow (ENDITOL, the Order of the Gray, Walk As Chaos), bassist Brent Stutsky (ex-Breach of Trust, ex-Death Valley Dolls), along with vocalist Jerrod Maxwell-Lyster (ex-Out of Your Mouth, ex-Autobody, ex-the R.A.C.E.) pulled together an insanely talented cast of collaborators including:

Guest Vocals by Andrew Ivashchenko (Shokran), Renny Carroll (Flux Conduct), Jonathan Thorpenberg (The Unguided), David Chunn (Vallite) and Mark Haggblad (Unveil the Strength)
Guest Guitar Solos by Andy James, Mattias IA Eklundh, Daniele Gottardo and Paul Wardingham.

Additional Guitar Production by Carson Slovak (August Burns Red, Everclear)

The self titled first EP was released by the band in 2015 to critical acclaim, leading to live performances with: Godsmack, Apocalyptica, Trivium, Obey the Brave, Into Eternity, and Kobra and the Lotus, as well as Premieres with Revolver and Metal Underground, and collaborations with production heavyweights like Joey Sturgis and Will Putney. The band was awarded a music video grant for “Almost Human” from Telus Storyhive and primary composer Sacha was the featured artist for Toontrack Metal Month: https://www.toontrack.com/news/customer-spotlight-alan-sasha-laskow/

Every Hour Kills is Endorsed by: Fractal Audio, Bareknuckle Pickups, and Toontrack.
