Finland prog power metal band Ultimatium reveal new single ‘Run Like The Wind’ features Emily Leone and Tomi Viiltola (Perpetual Rage / ex Dreamtale) taken from new album “Virtuality” coming out November 27 via Rockshots Records.

Ultimatium‘s mastermind Matti Pulkkinen comments new song:
“Up-tempo and a happy song shows the heroes of this album immortal and invincible, taking the story forward as they triumph in the game, unaware about the perils ahead. Song is mainly sung by Emily Leone with Viiltola helping in the verses. Song introduces some very high pitches and guitar/keyboard solo battling! And the song is backed full of C64 Sid lead sound! Game on!”

Packed with five amazing lead vocalists, Peter James Goodman (Conquest, ex-Virtuocity), Jukka Nummi (ex-Myon), Emily Leone, Tomi Viiltola (ex-Dreamtale, Perpetual Rage, Viilto) and Matti Auerkallio (Katra, Manzana, SoulFallen), a unique storyline about the virtual world, and the dangers of sharing everything in social media, along with up-tempo power metal songs combined with darker elements. The story album is backed up with lots of background vocals, sound effects and a “narrator”/system voice synthesized with Amazon’s Alexa.

Progressive Rock outfit, Everything In Slow Motion have released a new music video ‘Clementine’, taken from the new album “Influence”, out on October 16th, 2020 on Facedown Records.

“Influence” breathes vibrance into the Everything In Slow Motion catalog. The new project from EISM was meticulously recorded over the course of two years, partially at the historic Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, IA, and engineered by Nate Washburn (My Epic, Household, Listener). While their most recent EP “Laid Low” [review] was an elegant shift into more relaxed melodies and immersive vibes, the new LP “Influence” brings a sea change to the band’s body of work. ‘Influence’ is absolutely recognizable EISM, charged with the excitement of pure rock adrenaline. Years in the making, this new project may be the most anticipated LP in the label’s history, and comes across as that rarefied album possessing huge atmospheric sound anchored firmly in a rock ’n’ roll sensibility.
