the ongoing conceptIdaho’s The Ongoing Concept recently released a video announcing their new album “Handmade”. The video can be watched below.

As evidenced in the time-lapsed video, the forthcoming album’s title “Handmade” is more than a moniker and brings the term “DIY” to a whole new level. In addition to recording the album entirely in their house, making their own videos and album artwork, the band went as far as to build their own instruments for this album.

Dawson Scholz (guitarist/vocalist) espouses on the idea, ‘well, I don’t want to give the idea that we were dirt-poor growing up but we always were inclined to build the redneck versions of things we needed. I built our guitar cabs years ago and people always comment on them. So not too long ago, we were sitting around and just had the idea to really build our new album from the ground up including our instruments.’ Continue reading »

worldview_artwork.small Worldview formed in Los Angeles when George Rene Ochoa (Deliverance, Recon, Vengeance Rising) and Rey Parra (Sacred Warrior) spoke soon after their mutual friend Rick Macias (Sacred Warrior) passed away. He had always encouraged them to form a band together even though they lived miles apart. So George and Rey decided to form a band to honour their friend and thus Worldview was born.

George Rene Ochoa (guitars, keyboards & backing vocals) and Rey Parra (lead vocals) completed the line-up with John Gonzales (Recon, Deliverance) on drums and Todd Libby on bass guitar and keyboards. Ronson Webster also joined them as co-songwriter and background vocal guru. Worldview originally formed in January 2013 and released their first single in March 2013. But the road to releasing an album is not always as straight-forward as you might expect, with the much anticipated release seeing the light of day on 22 May 2015. Their style has been described as modern metal which is vocally harmonized, engaging, head pounding and fist pumping.
