(featured band) DESERT NEAR THE END – Of fire and stars from the same titled album!

thumbnail_PROMO BANNER

Desert Near The End always thought of themselves as a missing link. Taking their first musical steps in the Greek Metal scene of the 90’s, they grew up with the great Power/Thrash Metal bands of that era. In January 2018, Desert Near The End entered Incorporated M. Studios in Athens to record their fourth album “Of Fire And Stars”. This album is a culmination of everything the band draws inspiration from. It’s a Power/Thrash Metal amalgam carved with Death/Black Metal tools. It’s lyrics speaks of how fire and stars literally and metaphorically fuelled human imagination throughout history for “good and bad”. The fitting artwork for the album was created by Giannis Nakos(Remedy Art Design). The album was released at March 22, 2019 by Total Metal Records.

New Mecanica Unleash “Children of the Sun” (Dead Can Dance Cover) Song and Video!

DSC04706small

New Mecanica has a new song to start 2020. CHILDREN OF THE SUN by Dead Can Dance was the track chosen to cover. Daniel Cardoso (Anathema), with whom the band had worked with on their first album in 2008, mixed and mastered the final product.

 

New Mecanica decided to start the year with new and free music for anyone who wants to listen. We had been wanting to work on a cover song for some time, but we couldn’t decide which one. Then, the opportunity came along to work on a cover of CHILDREN OF THE SUN by Dead Can Dance, a song with which we identified immediately. We were very happy with what we were able to come up with and gave it our own personal touch. It is a Dead Can Dance song but with a New Mecanica feel. We hope you like it as much as we do!”

Crossed Keys (ex Kid Dynamite/Good Riddance) released new lyric video!

f0640038-5187-4e6a-8156-43fe93945917

Philadelphia’s own Crossed Keys released their Hellminded Records debut, Saviors, on October 4th. The melodic punk quintet features former members of Kid Dynamite, Zolof the Rock & Roll Destroyer, and The Curse. Saviors is comprised of seven songs that offer a fresh take on the melodic punk-hardcore played in the tri-state underground scene of the late 90’s and early aughts. This release will certainly resonate with fans of Samiam, The Bomb, and The Loved Ones. The band put together a lyric video for the track “Times of Grace” which is made up of a joyride around various neighborhoods in Philadelphia. Fall in love with the City of Brotherly Love and with Crossed Keys by watching the video now at The Bad Copy.

WATCH: TIMES OF GRACE

Bio:

“Set fire to all that you hold dear, so you don’t have to face your fears,” sings vocalist Joshua Alvarez (Halo of Snakes) in reflection of moving past the things that hold us back.  After playing in numerous bands around Philadelphia over the years, the members of Crossed Keys bring their varied experiences together to create a unique, driving melodic sound.

Alvarez is joined by drummer Dave Wagenschutz (Kid Dynamite, Good Riddance), bassist Andrew Wellbrock (Zolof the Rock & Roll Destroyer), and guitarists Beau Brendley (The Curse, Kill The Man Who Questions, R.A.M.B.O.) and Dave Adoff (Step Ahead, Jackie Thousand).  “Saviors” was recorded over a weekend in May 2019 at Noisy Little Critter in Downington, PA by Mike Bardzik (Joyce Manor, Kill Your Idols, Spraynard) and mastered at West West Side Music (The Misfits, Converge).

From the wistfulness of “Times of Grace” recalling shared times in basements and firehalls to the frustration of inaction voiced in the title track, “Saviors” is seven tales of gratefulness for all of those moments and people in our lives that led us to this point.

Crossed Keys has played venues all over the tri-state area, supporting bands such as H2O, Dave Hause & The Mermaid, The Lillingtons, Good Riddance, Shades Apart, and Strike Anywhere.

7f4272a2-c6d8-11e7-ae39-cefc40d8bbaf_original

Belgian melodic punk rock outfit F.O.D. is releasing its widely anticipated fourth full album “Sleepville” on 20 March 2020.

Sleepville is a story telling album that takes its listener on a journey through time. In their announcement the band writes that they will be ignoring the boundaries of punk rock for this release. If that does not spark your imagination, I don’t know what will…

https___cdn_evbuc_com_images_87230365_388942714287_1_original

The album will be out on CD and on 12” colored vinyl (4 exclusive colors) and released through Bearded Punk Records (BE) for Europe, Wiretap Records (US) for the US and Thousand Islands Records (CAN) for Canada.

Each record will come with an actual book that has its own artwork, which contains the story of the quiet town of Sleepville and its inhabitants. For the last year it’s been quiet around the Belgian foursome, but now they’re coming back with a huge bang. To start it all off, they are planning a release party for the album on March 20 at Cinema Plaza in Lier, Belgium, together with 4 supporting acts. Keep your eyes peeled for more news about this very special release.

The band released it’s first single called ‘Thirtysomething and Counting‘ which you can watch below!
