HEIDEVOLK – NEW ALBUM IN SPRING 2015

HEIDEVOLK – NEW ALBUM IN SPRING 2015




After more then a month of recording, mixing and mastering HEIDEVOLK has completed their fifth full-length album. The band describes their experiences in the following statement:

"This week we have finished the production of our fifth full length album. We look back at an intense yet satisfying studio session with a killer product as a result. Although we booked the studio for plenty of days it proved to be a tight schedule to record, mix and master 15 songs. However, with the help of Jochem and Bouke at SplitSecondSound we've managed to maintain our focus and keep the quality to the standard it deserves. We cannot wait to release the album and play the new songs live in March 2015!!!"

Details about the release, album cover, title and track list will be announced early next year. For now HEIDEVOLK posted their first webisode with a peak inside the production process of the new album and a sample of a new song here:

The pair posted the remix as Jack U, the collaborative name that the two producers previously released debut single 'Take U There (Featuring Kiesza)' under, in September.

As Pretty Much Amazing reports, Jack U’s remix came as part of a live set at OWSLA’s Christmas party - the record label founded by Skrillex in 2011. An official release for the remix is yet to be confirmed.

ESSENCE OF MIND - 'Wrong' EP

ESSENCE OF MIND - 'Wrong' EP




Building up on the success received by the new sound approach they revealed on their recent "Indifference" album, Norway's ESSENCE OF MIND announce «Wrong», the 3rd chapter in the EP-trilogy ahead of the hugely anticipated release of their 4th full length album, "The Break Up!", and this is all in the wake of their recent German tour with their neighbours, APOPTYGMA BERZERK. Powerful, melodic and electronic with a touch of industrial metal and other dance music elements such as drum’n’bass, this exciting new song confirms the band's unique sound and faultless production maturity. ESSENCE OF MIND selected 3 specific and very different remixers to give us the impression that each remix is an all new song standing on its own, let it be the drum'n'bass influenced tune from DISKONNEKTED, the powerful melodic and 80's tainted electro track from TECHNOMANCER or yet the very emotional and moody piano remix by XENTURION PRIME... As a last but not least bonus, you will also find the exclusive song "For Real" reminding us of the amazing diversity of sound of this talented Norwegian band...

WHYZDOM - "Symphony For A Hopeless God" to be released 17 February 2015 via Scarlet Records

WHYZDOM - "Symphony For A Hopeless God" to be released 17 February 2015 via Scarlet Records




‘Symphony For A Hopeless God’ is the third album for French Symphonic Metal band Whyzdom. After two successful albums relying on the power of Symphonic Orchestra and Metal riffing, as well as on the beauty of female voices, they push their own “Philharmonic Metal” concept one step further, adding an even more cinematic edge to their songs. Orchestra has never been so powerful. Choirs has never been so haunting. Riffs have never been so compelling. And vocals have never been so intense, ranging from pure and fragile melodies to harsh growls, all provided by mezzo-soprano Marie Rouyer. ‘Symphony For A Hopeless God’ depicts the constant need of humans to rely on the irrational to guide their life, and to give up their own freedom of thought, speech and action on behalf of what we know as “religion”. Slaughters, genocides, ethnic cleansings, have too often been committed in the name of religion. What would God think of that if he really existed? This is exactly what this album is all about. 'Symphony For A Hopeless God' was produced by Vynce Leff, recorded, mixed and mastered in Paris at Powermania Studio, assisted by Mathieu Gillon (120dB Studio).
