Famed for their gutsy and resolute blue-collared anthems, The Tossers are stepping in a different direction by releasing two songs for the holiday season – an original, ‘Merry Christmas,’ and the traditional New Year’s poem ‘Auld Lang Syne,’ penned by Robert Burns in 1788.

Guitarist Mike Pawula explains,‘Merry Christmas’ is a song that Tony (Duggins, mandolinist and lead vocalist) wrote a few years ago that he had been kicking around and we planned to put it on tape. Once we did that, it felt like we should record a companion song so, naturally, the classic ‘Auld Lang Syne’ seemed like the perfect fit. We have never done anything for the Seasons like this and hope people enjoy it.”

Duggins adds, “God Bless you all, and may each and every one of you have a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year.” Continue reading »

The Swedish melodic progressive metal band Darkwater will release their new album “Human” on March 1st in Europe and North America via Ulterium Records. The album will be available on CD, 2LP and digital.

“Human” won’t leave fans of melodic metal or progressive metal disappointed. The songs are heavier, more melodic and atmospheric than before and the band worked really hard on tweaking the ten songs and over 76 minutes of playing time into perfection. Jacob Hansen (Evergrey, Volbeat, Amaranthe) was chosen to mix and master the album and he did a fantastic job which resulted in the best sounding Darkwater album to date.

The lyrics of the album welcomes you into a world of you and me, how we affect the world around us and the struggles we deal with as humans. Continue reading »
