Dienamic was started by Stein-Odin Johannessen (guitar) and Gustav H. Lindquist (vocals) in 2009. Ever since their first live show with their very own music at a Tromsø youth club in 2010, their plan was clear – full throttle. This was the beginning of what turned out to result in a tour in Japan with international headliners only three years later. With ingenious bassist Bjørn-Håvar Skoglund and drummer Jørgen M. Olsen they started to reach the sky with great steps in their music career. They were immensely active on Tromsø’s live scenes until 2012.
During this period, they recorded their first EP, self-titled ‘Dienamic’ in 2010. In January 2012, they finished with recording of their debut album ‘Surfing The Apocalypse’ at GR Studios and Lydproduksjon, Tromsø. Things really started happening when the album was released in September 2012; Reviews with dice throws 5 and 6, nomination for ‘Best Album 2012’ at www.musikktrend.no, recognition from established bands from home and abroad.
One of the first highlights is publishing one of Dienamic songs on Terrorizer Magazine’s FearCandy CD forFebruary issue in 2013. During the summer of 2013, the band started to work on pre-production for the second album. Great reactions on Dienamic first album and an exclusive deal with Full Metal Service agency resulted with first ever tour outside Norway. Not more, not less than Japan together with Nightrage (SE), Psycroptic (AU) The Faceless (US) and Inarkadia (FR) on the beginning of November 2013! Few months later Dienamic confirmed main stage slot on Underwall Festival in Croatia and Sepultura support show in Belgrade.
Second album ‘Afterlife’ was recorded in April 2014, mixed and mastered during summer 2014 and will be out early 2015. Preparing for the upcoming extensive touring, some lineup changes had to be made. Early October 2014 Sebastian Jacobsson and Kenneth Iversen Muotkajærvi took up the duties on drums and bass. At the same time the band secured a very good record deal with Worm Hole Death (IT).
BRAWLERS have revealed plans to release their debut album titled ‘The Romantic Errors of Our Youth’ on April 6th via Alcopop! Records. This much anticipated full-length follows their 2014 EP ‘I Am A Worthless Piece Of Shit’ which, teamed with a heavy touring schedule, infectious disposition for good times and intent to spread the good word of rock ‘n’ roll, earned the band loyal fans all over the UK and saw them cited in Kerrang!’s ‘20 Hottest Bands In The World Right Now’, among other glowing accolades.
The track-listing for ‘Romantic Errors of Our Youth’ is as follows :
1. Annabel 2. Drink & Dial 3. Holding Back 4. High Again 5. N.O.R.E.S.T. 6. Two Minutes 7. (I’m Having A) Nervous Breakdown 8. Windowmisser 9. Medicine 10. Romantic Errors of our Youth
Already having garnered plays on Radio 1 and XFM, lead track ‘Drink & Dial’ is currently available to stream via Soundcloud:
Comments frontman Harry George Johns, “This song is about trying to not make those calls, those mistakes we all make, often after alcohol, mostly after heartache - but I’ve made these mistakes and I’m telling you now, don’t not drink and dial, just don’t drink!”.
Brawlers will also be main support to Real Friends on their upcoming UK tour :
March 19 @ Sound Control, Manchester
March 21 @ Asylum, Birmingham
March 22 @ Underworld, London
Further touring plans, including various festival appearances will be revealed in due course.
BLACK STAR RIDERS | DAMON JOHNSON AND SCOTT GORHAM DISCUSS DEVELOPING THEIR SONGWRITING SKILLS ON THE NEW ALBUM 'THE KILLER INSTINCT' BLACK STAR RIDERS guitarists Damon Johnson (THIN LIZZY, ex-ALICE COOPER/BROTHER CANE) and Scott Gorham (THIN LIZZY, ex-21 GUNS) check-in again to discuss how they have developed their songwriting skills over the years, and even still during the recording of the band's new album, The Killer Instinct.
The second studio album by BLACK STAR RIDERS is a rich collection of story-based tracks ('Soldierstown', 'Finest Hour', 'Blindsided', 'Sex, Guns & Gasoline') rooted in master craftsman performances by vocalist Ricky Warwick, guitarist Damon Johnson, guitarist Scott Gorham, drummer Jimmy DeGrasso and bassist Robbie Crane.
The Killer Instinct will be released on the 23rd of February.
After taking a trip back in time with the 'Tragic Illusion 25 (The Rarities)' album and the last studio album 'Tragic Idol' (2012) which entered the charts in over 10 European countries - most notably #2 in UK Rock Charts, #6 in Germany, #15 in Austria, #30 in France and #32 in North America Top New Artists/Heatseeker Charts, it's now time for PARADISE LOST's 14th studio album! The album will be entitled 'The Plague Within' and will be released via Century Media Records on June 1st, 2015 in Europe and June 2nd, 2015 in North America.
Nick Holmes comments: "We wanted to approach the new album differently this time by embracing the band’s VERY early days. We have written a very dark, yet melodic album, but this time many songs definitely have a death metal edge, which is something we haven’t done for a long long time in Paradise Lost.”
Their much anticipated 14th studio album is produced and mixed by with Jaimie Gomez Arellano from Orgone Studios in London (Ghost BC, Ulver, Cathedral, Angel Witch).
More details about the upcoming PARADISE LOST album “The Plague Within” will be revealed soon…
