Enslaved Announce New Record, ‘Heimdal’

Bergen visionaries Enslaved are proud to announce their 16th studio album, Heimdal, set to be released on March 3rd 2023, via Nuclear Blast Records. The news is accompanied by the release of a blistering new single, ‘Congelia‘.

Enslaved’sIvar Bjørnson & Grutle Kjellson commented,
“It’s quite weird, yet pretty awesome that we are now talking about the release of our 16th album; yes our 16th full-length album release. That’s not too shabby for a couple of scallywags from rural western Norway, is it? If you count our stint in the short lived Phobia-act, we have been playing together for no less than 32 years! 

In all these years, Norse mythology has been our umbilical cord to the realms of mysticism and philosophy, and our gateway to the realms of deep psychology and the esoteric worlds beyond. One of the most fascinating characters of our mythology is HEIMDAL, and he has been lurking around in our minds like an enigma for three decades now. His first appearance was in a song called ‘Heimdallr’ on our demo tape ‘Yggdrasill’ back in 1992, and he’s had both minor and more significant roles in our lyrical universe over the years.

This time we have decided to dedicate an entire body of work to this most enigmatic of characters and richest of archetypes – we give you ‘HEIMDAL’. We have reached deeper and scouted further ahead than ever before – the past, present and future sound of the band comes together in songs born from sheer inspiration – it is the common force of a close-nit group of friends and musicians.”

Sophie Lloyd Releases New Track, ‘Do Or Die’

Gearing up for her debut record, artist Sophie Lloyd whom you might know from tours with MGK is now focusing on her own music.

The debut effort, ‘Imposter Syndrome’ is set to be released in 2023 and will feature some guests.

Sophie had this to say about it:

“I can finally say that I have new music coming! All my music before was instrumental, so this is a very special release for me as it includes vocals, and some of the people we’ve worked with are people I used to have as posters on my wall as a kid, so it feels very full circle. It’s something that I have been working on before the first lockdown, and to be here talking about it feels amazing.”

And she has shared the first taste of it right now. 

That taste is ‘Do or Die’, which features Inglorious frontman, Nathan James. It’s a rip-roaring piece of old school hard rock shredding, perfectly executed alongside Nathan’s soulful tones. it’s a head-banger, and only the tip of the iceberg of what is to come.

Sophie had this to say about the collaboration:

I am so happy to be sharing my first single from the album with Nathan James. I have been following his music for many years and he just has the most incredible voice and did such an amazing job on bringing this track to life. I’m so grateful he was able to take part! I remember getting the rough vocals back from Nathan while I was away in LA, and we were just blasting it out of the car on the freeway. That’s when I knew this would be the first single to be released from my album.”

And Nathan added this:

“It was great working with Sophie on this track. I was sent the track without lyrics or melody and I wanted to write something that made sense, as if Sophie were saying it herself. The album title Imposter Syndrome helped steer me in the direction I took it lyrically. I think it’s a fun song and I really hope we get to do it live someday soon.”

Graphic Nature Announce Debut Record, ‘a mind waiting to die’

Graphic Nature have announced the details of their debut record, ‘a mind waiting to die’.

The record is set to drop on Rude Records on February 17th 2023.

Vocalist Harvey Freeman had this to say about it:

“This is our debut album. We wrote the entirety of the record during lockdown when things were at their darkest. A lot of the lyrical content stems from personal experience and challenges with mental health and isolation.

“Each song has a different subject, much like our previous tracks. We dive deep into depression, thoughts that lead you to a very dark place, frustration, sensory overload, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues etc. It’s a lot to take in and we’ve portrayed it in what we believe to be a perfect representation of how our heads process these things: pure anger over heavy riffs and drum beats. It’s what we do.”

Check out the Cover Art, Tracklisting and more below.

01. 404
02. Sour
03. Into The Dark
04. Killing Floor
05. Sleepless
06. White Noise
07. 90
08. Bad Blood
09. Twisted Fear
10. Headstone
11. Death Wish
12. A Twin
13. The Downpour

They’ve shared a new song as well, and it is a twisted one. 

Written from the mind of someone who wants to do despicable things, it is a crushing, discomforting piece of mind-melting aggression. 

Harvey had this to say about it:

“Killing floor is an interesting song. I wrote the lyrics in a completely different style to any song we’ve ever written before. Usually I write about things that I go through in day to day life, emotions that I struggle with. But this track is very different, I wrote the song from the perspective of a wannabe serial killer…someone that isn’t seen by the public eye but craves the attention and thrill of the consequences that come with killing another human being.

A Cure For Love Release New LP, ‘Birds, Beasts, Trees, Flowers’

Alternative rock powerhouse A Cure For Love released their new LP, “Birds, Beasts, Trees, Flowers,” out on all digital streaming platforms NOW. “Light, airy, smile-inducing and energetic,” according to GBHBL, is the best way to describe this indie-esque body of work.

Their promotional singles “Cafeteria Harrison” and “Anor Londo” hyped up new and existing audiences, giving them a peek into the soul that the LP would exude. It isn’t too common for alternative-based bands to bring so much raw emotion to their lyricism and melodies, but A Cure For Love accomplish it seamlessly. “Birds, Beasts, Trees, Flowers” is an endearing one – an album that you truly don’t want to avoid.

Their music could be described as a mix of rock, emo, and indie, but most people can’t put their finger on it. With a love of all things nerdy, they incorporate references to pop culture and their musical influences into many of their songs. Their personalities are welcoming and they strive to find friends every chance they get; the opportunity to meet people is far greater since they bridge musical gaps. A Cure for Love’s second full length album Birds, Beasts, Trees, Flowers will bring people together.

Banji Releases Debut Record, ‘Freshcakes’

Utrecht quartet Banji have release debut album Freshcakes via [PIAS] Recordings.  

Freshcakes showcases the brand of indie-pop the quartet have been cultivating over the last year or so, harnessing the power of technicolour fun against a greyscale world. This upbeat sound belies the darker themes explored however – frontman Morris Brandt elaborates on how it has been a cathartic process for him and the band: 

“Banji’s songwriting has always reflected my surroundings and environment. Big themes of this album are struggling with adulthood, self-worth and self-esteem, mental health and frustrations, addiction, and finding your own self-discipline and maturity over time. The lyrics that flowed out of me throughout the making of Freshcakes tend to be built around introverted thoughts, personal social situations, and subjects that I find difficult to dissect. Stressful feelings about mistakes made, expectations unfulfilled, and the guilt that surrounds that. At a young age I’ve learned to use music as an output for frustration and stress. The main thing that I wanted to do with this record was find a place for those feelings and letting them go, kind of like therapy in a way.”

Boston Manor’s have dropped their latest record ‘Datura’ is out now via SharpTone Records.

But that’s not all as the band have dropped a new music video for their latest single off the release, ‘Crocus’.

Vocalist Henry Cox says of the track: “Crocus is a song we’ve been trying to write for years. We always used to joke about writing a song that could be played in that club in The Matrix. I think this has been our best attempt, & we tried to portray that in the video. We’re very proud of both the song and the video, which was directed by our long time collaborator Zak Pinchin and choreographed by Kate Hannah & her team who managed to put together the full routine in only ten days. We’re going to be playing it live for the first time this week & I’m really looking forward to it.”
