Aussie 80’s Heavy Metal NOTHING SACRED New Album “No Gods” + Music Video “Virus”

Australian classic heavy metal Nothing Sacred are marking their return to the mosh pit with the new album “No Gods”, out now via Rockshots Records as of July 16th. 

In celebration of the release of the full length, the band is sharing their new music video for the track “Virus”.

The band adds:

“Virus came from the concept of displacing blame situations or actions onto others in order to achieve inner peace. It’s from the perspective of people or entities taking ownership to allow the less fortunate to continue on their chosen path with no consequences. This track has a great groove and is very fun to play.”

Check out the music video for ‘Virus’ below.

On the bands upcoming record, ‘No Gods’, the band say:

“We think our return with this new album will be received well. We’ve made a conscious effort to not be one-dimensional. We picked a cross-section of tracks we thought would make the album interesting. Though eight of the tracks are brand new, we decided to add two tracks ‘Final Crime’ and ‘Oracle’ we wrote for our 2nd album in the late 80’s, but never released.”

‘No Gods’ is available via Rockshots Records via the following links:

Montyfear Release New Music Video ‘Circus Called Life’

Finnish Seinäjoki-based metal band Mortyfear released their second studio album My Dystopia. The album is recorded and mixed by Riku Metsä-Ketelä at Finnvox Studios/Rmksound and it is mastered by Svante Forsbäck (Rammstein, Amorphis, Apocalyptica, etc.) at Chartmakers. To celebrate the album release, the band also released a new music video Circus Called Life.

Check out the video below.

Vocalist Janne Keskitalo comments:
“We are thrilled that the release day is finally here. We have been excited about seeing the reviews the album has already gotten and now it gets to be heard by all the people.The songs of the new album ”My dystopia” are the result of a process that we like to call “the blender”. That means that any of us can compose new music and throw it to blender and try anything with it. Then we discuss about it and maybe give it a one more spin in the blender. The recording process took some time and required a lot of effort of since we wanted to experiment with the songs and sounds. Although we had no boundaries when making the album, a certain insanity and evilness travels throughout the record making it a coherent entirety. The sound of Mortyfear has changed quite a bit since earlier releases but you can hear the dark vibes that are integrated to this band as a legacy. 

”You see the people whose only connection to the world is through social media. The only thing to achieve in life is popularity. For whatever the price. And others that don’t want it are freaks? I had a vision on the songs vocal line and how would I want it to sound like and to give the dissonance it needs to back up the story of living the life but hating still every part of it. We had it recorded in one take so we could capture the total insanity during the recording of it. We all connected to this song really hard. It also gave us the full push to make our sound something not so familiar and what has not be heard. We took it for a wild blender ride and gave it layers and ideas more and more until we got it down a little bit to a perfect amount of insanity and horror.”

Capstan Share Latest Single, ‘Blurred Around The Edges’

Florida five-piece CAPSTAN continue to satiate their fanbase with new music in the lead-up to the release of their second album SEPARATE,out July 23 via Fearless Records

Capstan have shared the video for the new song ‘blurred around the edges’ featuring an unexpected yet stunning guest appearance from sax sensation Saxl Rose. The song is intimate — almost too intimate — and anchored by a quirkily resonant riff and DeMario’s impassioned vocals.

“It’s a vulnerable look into my mental state at its lowest point, but writing and playing it has helped me work through a lot of what I was feeling. I hope those who are feeling similar things can find catharsis in it too,” says Mabry about the song that goes so deep it hits marrow.

Check out the video for ‘Blurred Around The Edges’ below.

Capstan fire off a high-energy and unique mix of post-hardcore, prog rock, and metalcore, fusing deeply emotional lyrics and melodic choruses with major breakdowns and techy, push and pull instrumentation. The band has toured across the U.S., Canada, and Europe over the course of their career, supporting Silverstein, Bayside, Trash Boat, Set It Off, and taking part in the final Vans Warped Tour in 2018. They released their debut full-length record, Restless Heart, Keep Running, through Fearless Records in September 2019. 

As the world locked down in 2020, Capstan took advantage of their time off the road to construct, deconstruct, and reconstruct songs for what would become SEPARATE. Having recently gone through a divorce, it was a tough time for guitarist Mabry. Most of the songs are about the depression and reflection he experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic. Capstan entered the studio with producer Machine [Lamb of God, Fall Out Boy] with one goal in mind: To make a record with no filler and all bangers.

Andrew W.K. Reveals Metallic New Track, ‘Everybody Sins’

Napalm Records and ANDREW W.K. recently announced the impending release of the iconic Party God’s fifth full-length studio rock album, God Is Partying. The long-awaited nine track opus of maximalist grandeur is set for release on September 10, 2021 – nearly 20 years after the release of his chart-topping full-length debut, I Get Wet.​           

Today, following the respective unveilings of his two bombastic new singles Babalon” and “I’m In Heaven”, the one and only party-rock icon is back with another rager, this time in the form of the triumphant and metallic, “Everybody Sins”. The hard charging track soars as a certified future hit with its divine harmonic attack juxtaposed with monster guitar riffs and undeniable vocal melodies.  

ANDREW W.K. says:  
”When we started working on the video for ‘Everybody Sins’, the director and I were scheming and straining over some of the choreography and camera moves. Now, I do realize some people will say life’s too short to scheme and strain like this. And others will say life’s too short NOT to scheme and strain. Still, other people will say both these approaches are incorrect. And what do I say? Everything I just said in the video for ‘Everybody Sins’.”

Check out the video for ‘Everybody Sins’ below.

Hovering in the fluorescent spotlight of his legendary party power, God Is Partying sees ANDREW W.K. ransack the corners of the human psyche, reaching a triumphant apex in his catalog. Emotive yet steadfast, ominous yet invigorating, God Is Partying embraces both the break-ups and break-downs of life, and ANDREW W.K. once again provides his audience with the perfect soundtrack to celebrate life in all its perplexing and euphoric intensity.​                 

Showcasing his indisputable musicality, God Is Partying features ANDREW W.K. performing all of the album’s instruments, in addition to co-producing the album with his long-time recording partner, Grammy Award-winning engineer, Ted Young.

Rob Marr Releases New Record, ‘Book Of Man’

Writer, musician and public health consultant Rob Marr is known for penning thought-provoking songs about everyday life that captivate listeners and pull them into a world all of his own making.

His fascinating podcast Book of Man has taken his obsession with writing meaningful lyrics and developed it into a brand-new, feature-length drama, beautifully narrated by Golden Globe winner Josh O’Connor (The Crown). This compelling and innovative take on the podcast intertwines original songs from Marr’s third album with the tragic history of four generations set across the fathers and sons of the author’s family, creating a truly immersive storytelling and songwriting experience. The album, also titled Book of Man, was written, performed and recorded entirely by himself, comprising nine songs all written for the podcast. He says, “Each song takes a key moment in the story and explodes it, examines it in detail, providing an emotional counterpoint to the spare, understated narration. The whole album was inspired by my dad’s death, a way of grieving and coming to terms with his loss.”

Lead single “Death and Comfort” was written after his father passed away and Marr confides how the song’s bruised, tender purpose wrestles with the moment where his dad’s mortality became something to be embraced, even welcomed. Sonically, “Death and Comfort” features warm, echoing piano melodies; the piano is the foundation of Marr’s music, a lifelong musical habit that has brought him huge consolation since childhood. Recorded with a single microphone in one take “Death and Comfort” is truly a song for our times; an unflinching, tender, sumptuously lo-fi goodbye to a much-loved father and husband.

Then there is “Perfectly Obvious”, a song which touches on his father’s mental health crisis: it features strong, fuzzy electric keys, a fluttering acoustic guitar and dynamic drums which take us through the emotions of the track. The raw and visceral tune features pockets of skeletal guitar, creating an almost haunting atmosphere. 

“When I Was a Boy” narrates the story of Marr’s grandfather and his time as a merchant seaman. Marr never met his paternal grandfather – he died before the singer was born – but was inspired to delve into his life (and ultimately, to write Book of Man) after finding his old Rolex watch, broken and unworn, in a box in his dad’s garage. The song is sung from his grandad’s perspective and speaks of a turning point where he swapped life at sea for a career in medicine. With melancholic, resolving melodies the track emits a warmth and fluidity. Marr sings, “Now I will sail this ship through starlit nights,” as the track turns into an uplifting chorus before swooping us back into the classical influenced piano.

With hip-hop inspired drums and groovy, melodic, rhythmic bass, to classical influenced piano and jazz harmonies, the album takes you on a journey of discovery through a mesmerising musical landscape. From start to finish, Book of Man is an emotional and rewarding listening experience, allowing you into some of the songwriter’s most personal moments, whilst also celebrating life and loved ones. Its themes of vulnerability, death and partial redemption are particularly relevant to our Covid-affected age, where small actions can have huge consequences, lasting generations.

Ethereal Electro Pop Artists TGC Release Parallels Record

Award-nominated electro-pop duo TGC (The Green Children) have released their long-awaited LP, Parallels, on the 8th of July via Illuminated City. On the album, listeners will find the previously unreleased title track. Together, the two have celebrated significant success, with their debut album being nominated in the first round of voting for a US Grammy Award in two categories; Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Album. In the following years, numerous publications have picked up on their work, including Rolling Stone Magazine, Huffington Post, Wonderland Magazine, Clash Magazine, Music Week, tmrw Magazine, Flaunt Magazine and FGUK Magazine, amongst others. The pair have accumulated nearly 60 million plays across platforms and received support from tastemaker channels SuperbLyrics and MrDeepSense. The two received further support from BBC Music Introducing in Coventry & Warwickshire who have played ‘Summon Our Love’, also taken from the LP.  The Parallels album will also be available on 12-inch vinyl and CD.

While Marlow Bevan originally hails from Warwick, England, Milla Fay Sunde comes from the mystical hills of Ålesund, Norway and the two currently find themselves based in Oslo, Norway. Enigmatic about their influences, their sound calls to mind the likes of Electric Youth, Chromatics and Blue Hawaii.

As the two have slowly built towards revealing their album, sharing one unique single at a time, we’ve begun to see a mystical pattern emerge of ethereal elements within their work. Parallels seems to explore the worlds running next to and mirroring ours, with elements occasionally overlapping and flowing into our timeline. Between visitors from the stars, secret weddings, summer romances and escapism from mundane life, TGC have created a celestial electro-pop album filled with adventure. 

In over a decade of working together, TGC recorded with Universal Music Group and Jackson Browne’s Spinside Records and collaborated with acts such as Paul Oakenfold, Moguai, Downlow’d, M4SONIC and Foster The People. Their philanthropic undertakings include the establishment of The Green Children Foundation, work alongside Nobel Peace Prize winner Prof. Muhammad Yunus, support of the SOS Children’s Village, The Planetary Society (Bill Nye) and the charity New Alternatives through a concert benefiting LGBT+ homeless youth.

Speaking to their listeners, Milla shares: “I’ve found that sometimes one lifetime is not enough, and paths you’d thought to adventure down come to a sudden end. If you’ve ever felt your world spinning into another direction to a seemingly parallel storyline, you’ll probably relate to this song.”
