Bloodbeat released a new single No Control from their upcoming second album!

German Berlin-based death/thrash metal band Bloodbeat released a new single No Control. The track is taken from their upcoming second studio album ‘Process of Extinction’ which is set to be released by Finnish record label Inverse Records on June 18th 2021. The album is mixed & recorded by Marc Wüstenhagen at
Dailyhero Recordings Berlin and it’s mastered by Gunnar Refardt.

Song description by singer and guitarist Jason Kuhn:
“The song “No Control” is about the Nazis’ megalomania and inhuman body experiments. The scenario describes the devil’s cruelty in Auschwitz. The perverse human experiments became a kind of addiction. They always wanted to try more and more. The mental and physical control of the Nazis in Auschwitz disappeared.

The lyrics describe that many autopsies were shown publicly while the person was still alive. Brains were exchanged, the heart was operated into another body and amputations were performed while the body was still alive. The song is not meant to glorify anything. It is meant to be a reminder of the cruelty so we don’t forget. The lyrics describe what really happened and the hatred that always remains in our minds.”

We are really excited to share this track because I think it serves as a good sample for how we have been approaching music for SYSC for the future,” shares vocalist Connie Sgarbossa. “Over quarantine we spent a lot of time writing and discussing what we wanted to do moving forward and we came to the conclusion we wanted to create something that was distinctly us again.” 

She continues: “So we explored combining the old elements that we identified most with us back in the day, the sass and hectic weird nature and played around with pairing that with more melody and emotion and I think this track is indicative of that evolution of us as a band as well as reclaiming our identity.

Brazilian/Dutch Death Metal Unit CRYPTA Releases Second Single + Lyric Video “Starvation”

Brazilian / Dutch death metal unit CRYPTA is ready for another round-house kick and unveils their second single, “Starvation“, off their upcoming debut album, along with an official lyric video. Their long awaited first full-length – Echoes Of The Soul – will be released on June 11, 2021 via Napalm Records.

Fernanda Lira and Luana Dametto are joined by supremely talented guitarists Sonia Anubis (Cobra Spell, Ex-Burning Witches) and Tainá Bergamaschi (Ex-Hagbard) to incite an uncontrollable storm of pure rage and belligerence. They enforce a heightened level of potency and experience from their successful past and current projects – enhancing influences from both classic and modern death metal genres, plus significant extreme and black metal elements, to create a sound of their own.

With their first single, “From The Ashes”, they hit the mark precisely and opened the gates straight to the dark death metal abyss, and with their second single, “Starvation”, the four-piece showcases another explosive facet of their infernal sonic power.

Echoes of the Soul was recorded in January 2021 at the Family Mob Studio (Brazil), mixed by Arthur Rizk (Code OrangePowertrip etc.) and mastered by the famed Jens Bogren (Opeth, Dimmu Borgir, Sepultura etc.). The cover artwork was created by Wes Benscoter, who is internationally famous for his stunning covers for bands such as Slayer, Kreator, Black Sabbath and many more.

Atmospherically dark and threatening, the 55-second intro “Awakening” prepares the listener for the oncoming ferocity of Echoes of the Soul, dispensing murky, fiery fuel into the death metal machine. Their significant sonic texture, derived from various death metal subgenres and traces of classic thrash, becomes instantly evident as the album begins, reflective of the entirely vicious, infernal aura the 10-track debut is about to unleash. CRYPTA unbridle high-powered sonic demons and nourish cumulative, explosive energy with raging guitar riffs, Fernanda Lira’s unmistakable vocal color and Damettos’s menacing drums. Tracks like “Starvation”, “Kali” and “Blood Stained Heritage” incite an uncontrollable storm of pure rage and belligerence, while offerings like “Under The Black Wings” and “Dark Night Of the Soul” deliver a message of pure hardness in perilous atmosphere. “Death Arcana” provides its listener further insight into CRYPTA’s sonic mastery and captivates with sprawling solos reminiscent of earlier times, yet spiced with a modern twist.

Echoes of the Soul tracklisting:
1. Awakening
2. Starvation
3. Possessed
4. Death Arcana
5. Shadow Within
6. Under the Black Wings
7. Kali
8. Blood Stained Heritage

Finnish Quartet Highway Queen Releases New Single, ‘You Better Run’

we have a brand new track for you from Finnish Lahti-based melodic hard rock band Highway Queen released a new single ‘You Better Run’. 



Guitarist Teemu Kääriäinen comments:
” “You Better Run” is a melodic rock song. It has a mystic and melodic verse, but the song has a strong and powerful chorus. The solo part has a real groove in it. The song has a darker sound than our previous song “Hellfire”. We love old school music. Besides 80’s metal you can hear influences from Pink Floyd, The Doors and southern rock.”

Collaborative Avant – Pop Duo ERA C Share New Track ‘0-60′ MPH’

Downtempo electronic duo ERA C has released their latest single, ‘0-60 mph’ on the 7th of May. The single is taken from their upcoming album DELIRIA which will be released on the 28th of May via Future Archive Recordings. The single follows the release of the Arms and Sleepers edit of their single DELIRIA which was mixed by Sun Glitters. ERA C is the collaborative project of Mirza Ramic from the well-known Arms and Sleepers duo and Sofia Insua of the established band Easy Easy

Arms and Sleepers have previously received support from numerous tastemaker publications including NPR Music, Huffington Post, XLR8R, Brooklyn Vegan, The Line Of Best Fit, Clash Magazine, Earmilk,  Magnetic Magazine, This Song Is Sick and Bandcamp Daily as well as airplay on KEXP. The duo has toured globally and shared a stage with well-known acts such as Toro Y Moi, Wax Tailor, Nightmares On Wax, Max Cooper and Caspian, amongst others. In total, the pair has received over 33 million streams on Spotify and Apple Music alone. Easy Easy have performed at shows with several big artists including Sean Paul, Ximena Sariñana, Incubus, Camilo Séptimo, Little Jesus and Mi Sobrino Memo. The quartet has collected nearly 3 million plays on Spotify alone and appear on the renowned Majestic Casual playlist and airplay from KCRW

Sofia Insua was born in Guatemala and is currently based in Berlin, Germany along with Mirza Ramic, who was born in Bosnia & Herzegovina and lived most of his adult life in Boston, USA before moving to Germany. The duo draw inspiration from the likes of Oneohtrix Point Never, Grouper and Low. ‘0-60 mph’ calls to mind the likes of FKA Twigs, Lana Del Ray and Lorde. 

It’s a hot summer day and the hazy highway stretches out before you, an infinite burning road of possibilities and hopefully a pool of water at the end. Who is your companion? Your ride or die who sits beside you – both distracting and dominating your thoughts? Their foot slowly pushed down on the pedal – picking up speed as you’re rushing down the empty stretch, narrated by Sofia’s gentle vocals as they weave between Mirza’s ambient tones – providing the perfect lullaby to an imperfect relationship.

Songstress Sofia Insua tells us about the creation of the single: “I wrote the lyrics for ‘0-60 mph’ during my first visit to Berlin, Germany as a tourist. I remember Mirza and I went to a random cafe because he needed some fast internet. It got me thinking about how fast cars and lovers both have the ability to go from nothing to everything. I wanted to capture how easy it is to fall; going from stillness to violent speed. Say, on a road trip, driving through endless highways with no speed limit – you look sideways to catch your lover on the wheel, taking you both there.”

Tigercub Share New Single, ‘Funeral’

Tigercub came crashing back into public consciousness earlier this year with a power-trio of hard-hitting singles “Beauty”, “Beat On My Heart (Like A Bass Drum)” and “Blue Mist In My Head”. A fresh blast of new noise and their first new material since 2017, they also announced the news of a much-anticipated second album, “As Blue As Indigo”, set for release on June 18th through Blame Recordings. 

The record was written and produced by the band’s own Jamie Stephen Hall, engineered and co-produced by Adrian Bushby (Foo Fighters, Muse) and subsequently mixed by Tom Dalgety (Pixies, Ghost, Royal Blood). Written over two years, “As Blue As Indigo” champions introspection drawing on the subjectivity of colour.

It’s available on LP, CD and Digital Formats where you can pre-order via the following link.

Tigercub today share a fourth taster from the record – dramatically different from the heavier songs that came before, “Funeral” is an intensely personal song ruminating on the loss of friends and family propelled instead by intimate acoustic guitars and a swooping string accompaniment.

Jamie had the following to say about the themes behind their latest song:

“Funeral is a song I wrote to cope with death, firstly to directly cope with my grandmothers passing, but also as an emotional outpouring to the shocking amount of friends I have lost to suicide over the years. I find songwriting incredibly cathartic and therapeutic, it helps me process my emotions and figure out what lies at the core of me. I find it difficult to properly express myself in day to day life, I was always taught as a male that to portray anything other than stoicism was a sign of weakness and that it should be overridden with jovial humour and general toxic bullshit. Nowadays we are all learning how wrong this affectation is, and rightly so.”

The band also recently announced a headline tour for later in the year and tickets are on sale now.

Tigercub will be playing the following dates:

November

27: Brighton, England – CHALK
28: Guildford, Surrey, England – The Boiler Room
29: Tunbridge Wells, England – The Forum

Elunia Releases New Single, ‘Pressure Points’

When reality became too much, ELUNIA created an alternative existence. A singer-songwriter-producer executing all of her own visuals, the New Hampshire-based recording artist captures the endless meaning of human interaction as an immersive experience. Her music delves beneath the surface, with striking electronic textures, soaring melodies, and observant, probing lyrics.

Although trained in music from an early age, it was the discovery of transforming feelings into creative entities that inspired the emerging songsmith to chart a different path. The multi-instrumentalist began writing and producing incessantly, hiding away in school practice rooms as a coping mechanism for the isolation she faced in the world around her. Fragments of thought noted in the midst of heart-wrenching moments evolved into ethereal, liquid atmospheres. Co-producing with multi-million streamed producer JMAC (Haux, Luz), the result is a flood of wild self-expression channelled through cinematic soundscapes.

Her latest release “Pressure Points” speaks of idolizing someone through a struggle with mental health and the fear of losing them. ELUNIA describes, “It’s not like someone is outright saving you, but more that they’re just existing in the right places and the right ways, and it’s really subtle, but that makes it all the more powerful.”

ELUNIA is inspired by unique sonics that pushes boundaries, alongside currents of inexplicably raw, human emotions. The genre-bending, alt-pop essence radiates through her music, with the introspective single oozing in intimacy and vulnerability. “Pressure Points” features cries of hazy guitar falls and atmospheric keys, all shimmering with authenticity. The mellow track includes original voice memos with birdsong floating in the background, resulting in a hypnotic and peaceful delivery and ultimately giving listeners a moment to breathe and appreciate our inner strength.
