With three EP releases under their belt, Weathered have joined the Facedown Family adding a refined, superbly crafted debut LP to their discography. In their new album “Stranger Here”, Weathered reveals perfectly counterbalanced subtleties of shoe-gaze with ample alt rock allure.

Weathered address strong lyrical themes on Stranger Here, making grace and forgiveness the nucleus of the album. The Minnesota four-piece reveal the mission statement behind the title of the album: “Our natural desire to run away from God and do things that are spiritually detrimental to us can make us feel like strangers around the people we’re supposed to be closest to.” Stranger Here lays bare the flaws of humanity, but it also whispers grace, and reveals a warm glimmer of hopefulness.

Living In Victory releases its “Freeman” EP, a passionate and raucous four song eruption of old school punk and hardcore, over catchy grooves and searing guitar hooks. Building on the momentum from their acclaimed “Be The Change” full length debut, Los Angeles based Living In Victory (formerly known as LIV.) continues to address social issues of today’s youth, and life as an outsiders united through the hardcore scene. Hard-charging, emotional and urgent, Freeman stomps through traditional musical barriers to deliver a listener experience that earns constant replays.

Living In Victory features vocals from Matthew Salamante, Jason Diaz on bass, two new guitar players Jeremy Tudon and Christopher Pigao, and the indomitable Tony Esquivel on drums. Continue reading »

With a new label home of Victory Records, Stockholm rock quintet Like Torches have separated themselves from Sweden’s music scene since their debut, 2013’s Keep Your Head High. Burning like their namesake, these five emotionally charged individuals are set to release “Loves And Losses,” later this fall. The proof is in the first single released, ‘Silver Lines.’

“We have never met a label as enthusiastic and excited about Like Torches as Victory, so we are all intrigued to see what we can accomplish together,” explains vocalist Jonathan Karn. “It is an honor to be working with a label that has released so many of the legendary records we grew up listening to.” Continue reading »

After the successful kick-off with their 2016 EP “Divided by Choice” on Redfield Records, melodic hardcore specialists The Pariah are ready to take the European scene by storm with outstanding new material as well as with their energetic and intense live shows and raise the standards for their peers and followers. The first precursor ‘Silent Birds’ sets the uncompromising path but it also holds ready the right dose of catchiness. A video that might break with the viewing habits of parts of the audience, matches perfectly the image of a band that that doesn’t have to look for its scene for long but keeps on having the demand to be original.

If as headliner, on festivals or as opener for bands like Napoleon, Hundreth, Capsize, Landscapes, Shai Hulud, Canvas and Polar, it is safe to claim that The Pariah have never played a show, where they didn’t attract some new fans. Their combination of drive, enthusiasm, the absolute belief in their art convinces everyone in the end and this will certainly also be the case on their upcoming shows with Being As An Ocean and Counterparts this summer.

Canadian Symphonic / Celtic Metal artist Leah is currently working on her brand new Celtic Metal album. Leah checked in with the following:

I should also warn you that you won’t find this new album in any digital stores at it’s initial release. Instead, you will be able to find digital downloads and physical copies on my own website.

I don’t know if or when I’ll release it to regular digital stores such as Amazon, iTunes, or Google Play. And I don’t know if or when I’ll release it to streaming sites at all.

Your best bet is to get the real physical copy – so why not make it a signed copy?! Continue reading »
