MYRKGRAV (Finest FOLK METAL from Norway) - New Single "Vonde Auer"

Lars Jensen and his one-man FOLK METAL project MYRKGRAV is finally out with new material – the independently released digital exclusive single „Vonde Auer“:

„Vonde Auer“ continues where „Sjuguttmyra“, the band’s most recent musical effort from 2013, left off. In other words: old-fashioned Folk Metal in which Jensen blends old and new in a manner distinctly Norwegian – including extensive use of Norway’s national instrument: the Hardanger fiddle, masterfully executed by renowned folk musician Olav Luksengård Mjelva.

Continuing the conceptual lyrical and visual tradition of MYRKGRAV, „Vonde Auer“ features lyrics based off of folklore from Ringerike in Norway, Lars Jensen’s homelands.

In addition to the regular „Vonde Auer“ version (though there is very little regular about it), the release also features a genuine folk music twist wherein the song has been broken down, rewritten and rearranged for the Hardanger fiddle.

If one wouldn’t know better, one’d probably think it a centuries old traditional piece of music from a faraway Norwegian fjord village. Alas, it’s simply Jensen and MYRKGRAV continuing with 1000 mile steps towards the most genuine blend of folk music and Metal possible.

New Voice of the Soul Song Streaming Now

Dubai extreme metallers Voice of the Soul have today released a brand new song entitled 'Pendulum' from their forthcoming debut album 'Catacombs'. The album will be released on 27th March 2015 distributed via UK label Hell's Hammer & India's Transcending Obscurity.

Vocalist and guitarist Kareem Chehayeb talks about the song, "This is song was inspired by the mass suicide of Jonestown that took place in 1978, but the lyrical content applies to so many political groups and cults whose leaders exploit the poor and disenfranchised for their own gain.”

The artwork (as seen below) was designed by Syrian Dubai-based artist Hamood Hallak of MHD Graphics, and was inspired by the concept of 'Pendulum'.

Kareem elaborates: "While it appears evident that there is a priest/figure leading sheep, the cliff that they are about to walk off is within the temple itself. We don’t specify whether it’s religious or not, because religion isn’t the sole focus. It’s political, it’s social."

First formed in Kuwait on the opposite side of the Persian Gulf in late 2007 17 year-old Kareem Chehayeb and 16 year-old Monish Shringi released their first EP, ‘Winds of Apprehension’ in July 2009 with second EP, ‘Eyes of Deceit’ seeking the light of day the following summer. After playing several shows in Dubai since January 2011, the band opted to relocate to the most popular city and emirate in the UAE before releasing their third EP, ‘Into Oblivion’, live on SOS Heavy Metal Radio in Portugal in August 2011. ‘Into Oblivion’ was undoubtedly the bands most successful record with songs receiving regular airplay across the globe.

During April 2014, the band made home at Haven Studio with producer Hadi Sarieddine in Dubai and recorded their debut full-length album ‘Catacombs’.

1) Desolation 2) Perpetual Deception 3) Pendulum 4) Quarantine 5) Cold Rupture 6) The Mist 7) Perdition 8) Defiled 9) Images Subside

YOUR ARMY "Sicker Than Us" VÖ: 20.03.2015 (intono records/rough trade) - Article in German


“Hot, angry, vitriolic and damn sexy” (Ace, Skunk Anansie)

Seit 2007 arbeiten die vier Engländer um Frontfrau Lucy Caffrey als Quartett zusammen und brachten ihre Energie und Tanzfreude bereits kurze Zeit später auf europäischen Festivals, wie dem legendären Isle of Wight-Festival, den Fans näher. Lucys soulige, aber auch rockige Stimme unterstreicht dabei die Bandbreite der Indie Musiker von melodischen bis hin zu harten, brachialen Songs, welche einen bleibenden Eindruck fernab von Einheitsbrei oder Mainstream hinterlassen.

YOUR ARMY sind seit ihrem erfolgreichen Erstlingswerk „Ignite“ (2013) ein fester Bestandteil des Indie Rock und messen sich dabei soundtechnisch problemlos mit Größen wie SKUNK ANANSIE, FLYLEAF, GUANO APES oder PARAMORE.

Das zweite Album „Sicker Than Us“ der vier Engländer aus Brighton erscheint am 20.03.2015 und wird produziert von SKUNK ANANSIE-Gründungsmitglied Ace, welcher auch bereits auf dem Vorgänger sein musikalisches Wissen und seine Leidenschaft für eingängige Riffs mit brachialer Energie in die Band einfließen ließ. Ebenso wird das Rezept für guten, eingängigen Indie Rock noch verfeinert. Wie bereits beim Vorgänger wird auf Synthesizer und ähnliche Spielereien verzichtet und klarer, solider Gitarrenrock präsentiert. Die jahrelange Erfahrung des SKUNK ANANSIE-Gitarristen und Songwriters Ace unterstützt zum zweiten Mal die ohnehin in großem Maße vorhandene Kreativität der vier Engländer. Gemeinsam geht man leise, melodische Wege, aber auch rockige, dreckige Pfade, die den Hörer an außergewöhnliche und neue musikalische Orte führen. Gekrönt wird die Reise durch die emotionale und mitreißende Stimme der Powerfrau Lucy.

Am 20.03.2015 wird der Weg des Indie Rock einen neuen Meilenstein erhalten! Das zweite Album der britischen Musiker YOUR ARMY trägt den Titel „Sicker Than Us“ und setzt auf ausdrucksstarken, kraftvollen Sound. Dieser wird zum einen getragen von der charakteristischen Stimme von Sängerin Lucy, zum anderen von der Kreativität von Produzent Ace und dem musikalischen Können von Chris (Gitarre), Simon (Bass) und Andy (Drums).
