Wolf Mountains – German Garage Outfit Unveils their Lo-Fi VHS Video for “No Means No” ‘Urban Dangerous’

The third studio album “Urban Dangerous” by German Garage-Rock trio Wolf Mountains pushes the doors further open into the world of timeless pop. The characteristic features like the rolling bass, or the 90’s high school rock vocals are still present, but a playground of skits and sound experiments are opened up. The songwriting seems more mature, the riffs more cheeky, and the fun factor more balanced, so that the individual songs are amplified by the overall “hit” factor. The album will be released on September 27th and Wolf Mountains have just premiered the video for their new single, No Means No. Continue reading →

Leaving Eden Release The Agony of Affliction

Leaving Eden Release The Agony of Affliction

Leaving Eden’s new album, The Agony of Affliction (Darkstar Records\Sony), released on August 9, 2019, represents the 7th studio release by this multi award-winning, female-fronted powerhouse of a band, featuring the incredible vocal spectrum and range of lead vocalist “Eve.”

The Agony of Affliction contains a minefield of compositional ingenuity infused with the spirit of hard rock. Showcasing ten bold pieces of precision songcraft, Leaving Eden weaves a dynamic tapestry of organized chaos and unbridled harmony throughout the album. The mixed pacing of “Pacing Dogs” sets a lingering, dramatic tone for everything that follows as the band escorts waves of heavy melody through tuneful bursts of vibrantly crunchy guitar.  Continue reading →

Necronautical Share Title Track ‘Apotheosis’ And Release New Album

Necronautical Share Title Track ‘Apotheosis’ And Release New Album

UK black-metal outfit Necronautical who release their new album this Friday through world-renowned extreme metal label Candlelight Records have shared the title track Apotheosis’. The band comment, 
 
“We are pleased to present the title track from our new album, ‘Apotheosis’. When we arranged the album, we treated it’s central song as the climax of its musical and lyrical concept. The lyrics are a reflection on the nature of mortality, and on the journey of a thought from its origin into a belief. The word “Apotheosis” means the highest point of something’s development, or it’s elevation to divine status. To reflect this in the music, the song was constructed to elevate the epic and melancholic melody of it’s central riff, which serves as the musical apex of this record. We hope this track will take you on a grimly euphoric journey!
