(review) STORM{O}-Finis Terrae(Zegema Beach Records)


As Autumn slowly dies, closes and makes way for winter, Zegema Beach Recordsdoes their best to provide their best releases of the year so far. One of such is the record by Italian band called STORM{O}

This record contains 12 songs of classic chaotic school of Italian hardcore mixed with screamo, mathcore and synth here and there to add to the vibe and heaviness of the record. The lyrics are in Italian. The drums are merciless, the bass is trembling like machine gun and at first it all sounds very confusing. Afterwards, you realize that there is order and perfect timing in all that chaos and the things begin to sit in their place. This album is a perfect soundtrack for tortured soul and blackened heart. The faster more straightforward hardcore punk songs are mixed with almost blastbeats but there is subtle melody beneath blastbeats like in fantastic Tempi Morti. This is another superb album from the rich Italian underground scene.

Matt Megrue releases his solo album in February 2020. Here is the first song!


Continuous evolution is the name of the game for Charleston, SC songwriter, Matt Megrue. From fronting the Atlanta pop-punk outfit, The Unusual Suspects, to the indie rock stylings of Loners Society, to now releasing music eponymously blending punk, emo, Americana and 80’s pop-nostalgia, no two records ever sound the same.

South Carolina, based singer-songwriter Matt Megrue (The Unusual Suspects, Loners Society) will release a new LP ‘The Mourner’s Manual’ on February 7th .

Album pre-orders and merch bundles are now available at: www.mattmegrue.com (available on smoky gold vinyl, CD and digital).

A lyric video for the Mourner’s Manual’s opening track “We” is streaming here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1QJhtvCUBM&feature=emb_logo.

A music video for the song “Afterglow” is also streaming here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFPVqNR3XWw&feature=youtu.be.

In a message to fans on his newly re-launched website, Matt writes, I cannot believe that this day has finally arrived. I have lived it in many a dream over the last few years, and yet, here we are. My first solo LP, The Mourner’s Manual, is finally here. I began this project as 2016 was coming to a close with the help of Sean and Brendan Kelly and, over the next three years, we saw it to completion. The Mourner’s Manual is Loss. Love. Anger. Hope. Longing. Vulnerability. Spirit. May you find a little bit of that here. Think less, feel more. Yours en mourning.
