Sarantos - Not Where I Wanna Be (2014)




Sarantos is finally releasing his long-awaited and eagerly anticipated 1st solo artist music album on November 18th 2014. Sarantos' music has received rave reviews so far and he relishes this chance to pursue his life long dream.

Sarantos unique sound has been best described by industry insiders as "an emotionally powerful vocal style masterfully united with music that is a fusion of classic 80s rock blended with modern soft rock and pop music!"

Sarantos currently has over 1M twitter followers, 450K Facebook likes and is rated #4 on Reverbnation in the pop genre.  Sarantos was invited to the Toronto Music Festival on May 6th and performed with his new band to a sold out live audience of over 200 people.

There will be plenty of continued buzz throughout the year.  A new song will be released on the 1st Tuesday of every month, a new music video on the 2nd Tuesday of every month, a new Funny video of the month on the 3rd Tuesday of every month and a new Whiteboard video on the 4th Tuesday of every month! 




Sarantos has been writing lyrics since 4th grade and is passionate about the words he puts to the music. Music was always in his blood. Music was always a passion and much more than a hobby. Sarantos has written over 2,000 songs!

Having undergone several personal challenges with Sarantos' father passing away two years ago after a long hard-fought battle with lung cancer, dealing with personal health issues like asthma and allergies which affected his singing style, going thru life's ups & downs, the timing is finally right. Sarantos main motivation, however, is to raise money for charity.

33% of any music related sales are going straight to charity!

Sarantos has always been inclined to help people in need and is proud to launch this CD as a way to donate a portion of proceeds to charity, hopefully inspiring other artists to do the same. The 11 charities chosen for each song include American Cancer Society, American Lung Association, Make-a-Wish Foundation, American Heart Association, St Jude's, Hellenic Academy, ASERF, American Red Cross, Children's Hospital of Chicago, Chicago Medical School, Thanioton Society & the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

The website, Melogia (which in Greek means "with words") was established by Sarantos, an aspiring singer and song writer.

Sarantos Mission or Goal:

"My goal when you listen to one of my songs is very simple. I want you to feel the need to:

-Sing
-Dance or move to the groove
-Play the song over and over again"

Uzziel - Torn Apart (2014)



Uzziels style is hard to describe for they play everything that steams and rocks. Soothing vibes are inspired by dark emotions and life pain.

Their killerstyle drums combined with melodic/thrashy guitars, smashing shouts and clean vocals draw people into a dark magical spell. UZZIEL  does understand the balance between aggression and sable force.

They now have been destroing the stages since December 2010.



UZZIEL looks back at the releases of the demo „Broken“ and their video „Captured by Emptiness“ in the year 2011 followed by „Torn Apart“ , a worldwide sold album in 2014.

The burning desire to break boundries feeds their soul for many more brutal beats.

Tracklist:

1.     Children's Playground                 
2.     Like a God                        
3.     Lies                        
4.     Wash Away My Tears                                 
5.     Coming for You                                 
6.     In Your Eyes                       
7.     The War Within                         
8.     I'm Dying                    
9.     Why                       
10.   Captured by Emptiness                           
11.   Lost Control                                 
12.   Are You Afraid                   
13.   Frozen                 
14.   D'Alighieri's Nightmare

EVYLTYDE ANNOUNCE DEBUT ALBUM RELEASE

London-grown female-fronted metal machinists, EVYLTYDE, are excited to announce their highly anticipated self-titled debut album will be officially released on 19th January 2015 and that it is currently available to pre-order NOW from iTunes, Amazon MP3 and directly from the bands website (www.evyltyde.com).
The 10-track digital release includes 5 songs that currently feature as part of EVYLTYDE’s live set; ‘Living To Die’, ‘Kick You Down’, ‘Guilty’, ‘Chastity’ and ‘Fly Away’ plus another 5 new songs that the band have written exclusively for the album during their one month stint at Boneyard Studios in Wales, United Kingdom.
The special edition CD release will not only contain the 10 new recordings, but will include versions of EVYLTYDE’s four previous releases as ‘bonus tracks’ – pre-ordered copies of the CD will also be signed by the band as a special bonus.
EVYLTYDE are one of the UK’s fastest growing metal bands and are redefining what is expected from the genre of ‘female-fronted’ metal, by steering away from the gothic/symphonic style that has been so common in recent times and opting for a more classic, traditional metal approach with great hooks, hammering riffs and powerful vocals.
Going forward, EVYLTYDE start work on their next music video in only a few weeks time and plans are already underway for a spring UK tour in 2015 with some dates already confirmed.



EVYLTYDE – Debut album available for pre-order on iTunes, Amazon MP3 and www.evyltyde.com...

'Evyltyde ripped up the stage, we were very impressed with them!' - XL Promotions
'I have just witnessed some metal awesomeness!' - Oliver (Metal music fan)
'This band are awesome. The rhythm section is totally on point and the fact that you can actually hear the bass in the mix is massive plus.' - James Holder, The Musical Outcast




EVYLTYDE are a female-fronted British metal band based in and around the London area who bring the sound of traditional, classic metal into the modern age with a mix of killer riffs, searing power chords and melodic vocals!!!
EVYLTYDE was established in August 2013 by Danny Merton (guitars) and Hannah Delany (vocals) after both were recruited for a project to reform a cult UK metal band from the 80s.
However, when that project fell through they were left with nothing but some studio time, so they set about using it productively - recording a number of tracks for independent release.
"Fight To Be Free" was the first of these tracks and is a homage of sorts to classic British metal bands like Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. "Fight To Be Free" was released during the traditional Christmas Chart period in 2013 and is currently available for download.
Due to it's lyrical content being inspired by events such as the Arab Spring, Libya and the war in Syria, EVYLTYDE are dedicated to giving all profits from the sales of the single to charity.
In late 2013, bassist Paul James (formerly Virus) permanently joined EVYLTYDE to add even greater depth to what was already an extremely powerful core.
After a number of drummer changes in early 2014, EVYLTYDE finally settled with Isaac Marques (previously 101% Pantera), a stalwart of the London depping scene who finally hung-up his mercenary hat to join the band full-time.
Within a relatively short amount of time EVYLTYDE have been lucky enough to share the stage with some other great independent UK metal acts including DETHONATOR and SKREAMER as well as NWOBHM originators SACRILEGE.
In July 2014, EVYLTYDE released their second single "Killer", the video for which received over 1,000 views on YouTube in it's first few weeks.
To celebrate the recording of their debut album the band released their third single "Skin Deep" in late September/early October 2014 as a free download on their Reverbnation page.
Now, with the imminent release of their self-titled debut album, EVYLTYDE are looking forward to an exciting 2015!
EVYLTYDE's second single release "Killer" is available NOW from iTunes. BUY HERE: http://bit.ly/W2QrTc or you can WATCH IT HERE:http://bit.ly/1tfwkA4

Methane - Southern Metal EP (2014)


"Ass kicking Metal!" - Chris Forbes  - MetalCore Fanzine
"If you’re into thrash metal like Pantera, Slayer, and Signs of the Southern Cross, you’re going to really dig these guys’ sound." -Metal Valkyrie Webzine.
http://metalvalkryrie.tumblr.com/post/88786662215/methane-metal-from-borlange-se
"Methane’s “Southern Metal” have slow but heavy sound and rhythm to them that just make them catchy to anyone who can enjoy that kind of music. "
http://headbangerreviews.wordpress.com/2014/06/27/methane-southern-metal/
8 of 10 star (excellent) review from Metal-Temple .com
http://www.metal-temple.com/site/catalogues/entry/reviews/cd_3/m_2/methane-southern-metal.htm

Methane is a four piece Southern Metal band from Sweden. Formed by Tim Scott former bassist of (Revenant - Nuclear Blast and Hateplow - Arctic/Pavement feat. Members of Cannibal Corpse) and Jimi Masterbo former ( Hell Patrol guitarist ) along with Tim's brother ,Dylan Campbell ,and Andreas Strom on drums.  
Methane formed in the fall of 2012 when Dylan moved to Sweden. Tim contacted Jimi with the idea of moving away from death metal towards a more progressive style of metal music. The three members started sharing ideas and influences, writing metal songs with country overtones on a heavy Pantera-esque groove. Andreas was brought in to help the writing and quickly became a permanent cog in the Methane machine. 



Methane confirms headlining spot for Sweden's Metal Inferno Festival.  
Methane will be headlining Friday December 5th at the 2 day Metal Inferno Festival in Kramfors Sweden at  Bollsta Folkets Hus. The southern metal quartet is returning from thier U.S. mini tour and finishing 2014 in Scandinavia. 
The Metal Inferno Festival is a yearly fund raising benifit for "The Hero's House" a foundation that supports the families of children who have been hospitalized with longterm illness and The Childrens Cancer fund. The festival hopes to generate 100 000 SEK this year for donation. 
"This is a killer welcome home and to be asked to play for such a worthy cause is an honor. I hope to see die hard rattleheads and beardbangers out in full support!" Said Tim Scott in a statement to the press. Methane recently released a music video for the song 'Hang Me High' which can be seen on Youtube.

A2aThoT - Gestalt (2014)


A2aThoT (pronounced “azathot”) is a one-man band from Italy. Not only he records every instruments and vocals (except for some guests), he's also recording, mixing, and engineering everything. This "self-production statement" wants to remind to everyone that you don't need so much to make music, as long as you truly feel it inside of you.
In 2012, A2aThoT published his first, self-produced album (“A2aThoT”), available on his official website. In August 2012, he release a metal cover of “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen, a sort of parody of this famous song.It's only for YouTube users, and it's not available in any form apart from the video. It reaches more than 1000 views in a matter of few weeks, with no promotion at all except A2aThoT himself.

In late 2012/early 2013, he starts recording new material, better oriented for the real A2aThoT sound, that will be featured in the EP, “Trust Your Ear”, published in March 2013 with Pure Steel Promotion. The EP is a complete mix of Doom Metal, Psychedelic Music, with a great taste for experimental things. The sound is deep, dark, and will take you down, below the growling vocals (usually dubbed with clean ones), but always with a touch of melody and melancholic clean parts. Basically, a creepy atmosphere with a gentle touch of sadness. The feedbacks are very good, and the record gets a lot of reviews and articles from many websites (MetalItalia, In Your Eyes, Metal1, Greek Rebels, Blackened Horde, Italia di Metallo, Stormbringer, Focus On
Metal, etc.) and magazines (Rock Hard, Burst, etc.) along with a good work from web radios (Metal-FM, Music-Is-Life, etc.).


In 2014 a new record is ready: “Gestalt”, self-published and promoted. More electronic and psychedelic, now doom metal is not the biggest part of A2aThoT's sound. Influences from Depeche Mode, Anathema, Telefon Tel Aviv, Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Pink Floyd, Neurosis, and many more, can be found in the songs that design a claustrophobic, anxious, nervous atmosphere.

The Rockford Heroes - Edge of the Silverthorn (2013)


"Edge of the silverthorn" awarded as 4th best album in 2013 by Rockeyez.com
“A nice mix of 70’s hard rock, NWOBH and pomp”. That’s how
Kaj Roth on the blog Roth’n’Roll described this release in a
post. And it’s a very good summary. The drummer Marcus
would probably like to add “AOR” to the description as well.
The music is a mix of a lot of genres, and for each listener
there will probably be another word in the “A nice mix of...”
description.
The Rockford Heroes have previously released to EP:s,
“Light scares” (2011) and “The White EP” (2012). But have
got a lot of good reviews, people seem to enjoy this kind of
music. “It sounds like you picked the best part from hard rock
and heavy metal” was one of the first judgements and e.g.
Sweden Rock Magazine did an interview which was pub-
lished in the november issue 2012.


Musicwise it’s exactly what you should expect from The
Rockford Heroes
, the unexpected. Listen and enjoy! All mu-
sic are available for free on the homepage, but also on most
other services people use, like iTunes, Spotify and so on.
The Rockford Heroes is a pretty new band on the scene,
but the members are not. Jonas have previously released two
critically acclaimed albums with VII Gates, Erik have played
with both Guns’n’Roses and Iron Maiden tribute bands and
Marcus plays with some other projects, like Reach (with
members from e.g. Houston) and Titan. Dan have studied
on MI and is a very good singer
!

Jonas Arvidsson - Guitars & keyboards, 
Dan Hultstrand - Vocals,

The Angry Bishops - Lost Days Found (2014)


They once were lost, but now they're found!  
In 1995, shortly after recording their debut album, the Altar Boys entered into a management contract. They turned over their master tapes in the process, which were to be shipped to record labels.
Recently, founding members John Devlin and Bobby Civitello sat down to discuss their band’s name change from Altar Boys to The Angry Bishops and reveal why it took a “crusade” to release an album that had been missing for twenty years. “In those days,” Devlin says, “we didn’t know much about the music business. We just knew music.”


Two years later, despite touring, the band had no record deal, no money, and found themselves plagued by substance abuse. The Altar Boys, their dreams, and the management company dissolved. One day last year, Devlin began to wonder what happened to their tapes. “Those songs are a part of my soul. That album was my prodigal son. I needed it to find its way home.” Devlin embarked on a journey to find the lost music.

First, he attempted to locate the old management company. He found a dead end. Next, he turned to the internet. “I got an e-mail from John [Devlin],” Civitello explains. “He asked about the tapes. I told him, ‘I thought you had them’.” Intrigued by the notion of rediscovering those old songs he’d written, Civitello joined in the movement. Together, he and Devlin tracked down former Altar Boys rhythm guitarist New York Dick and drummer Joe Graz. Both were engaged in other projects, and neither had a clue where the masters where.

As Devlin and Civitello’s efforts to locate the lost album began to gain momentum, their diligence was causing them to confront lost days as well. “I mean, we started asking old girlfriends,” Civitello says. “Old clubs we used to play. Sound men, booking agents, roadies, you name it. Anybody that might be able to help.” Then, a breakthrough occurred. Devlin got a call from Paul Opalach of Long Hill Recording, the studio where the album had been recorded all those years ago. An ADAT of the sessions survived, and seven tracks were available.

Four of the seven salvaged tracks have been remastered and will be released as an EP. The album, Lost Days Found, will be available on October 28, 2014. Since the music was found, Devlin and Civitello agreed that the next step was to pick up where they’d left off 20 years ago. Recently, the two began working on new material and released a new name for their project.

Inviting everyone to join them on the newest chapter in their music, Devlin and Civitello have renamed themselves The Angry Bishops. A tribute to all the bands who never got so far, The Angry Bishops is honored to have the opportunity to make new music and breathe new life into their older music.
