Orphan Skin Diseases - Dreamy Reflections (2018)

Logic Il Logic Records & Burning Minds Music Group are glad to announce that "Dreamy Reflections", official debut album of Italian alternative
rock / metal band Orphan Skin Diseases, is set for release on July 13, 2018. Orphan Skin Diseases were formed in 2015 by drummer maestro
Massimiliano Becagli, known in the Italian scene as the drummer for respected heavy metallers No Remorse. The Orphan Skin Diseases line-up
was completed by the addition of skilled musicians from the Italian rock/metal scene: Gabriele Di Caro (ex Sabotage, ex Outlaw - Vocals), Juri
Costantino (ex Creation - Bass) & David Bongianni (ex Virya, Little CB - Guitar). The band’s style was built by mixing the influences from each
musician in order to reach a refined and personal sound. Progressive rock music, heavy metal influences, funky hints and alternative elements
are perfectly mixed and balanced to create a powerful-but-catchy experience.
Guitarist & founding member David Bongianni says: "14 new songs, 14 actual and personal stories for the whole band. 14 tracks reunited in an
album with a clear title, "Dreamy Reflections", which represents what we feel inside and what we try to show throughout the album. We like to
define ourselves a four-pieces band plus one member, this to remark that Dimitri Bongianni is now officially part of the band due to his precious
support both in providing vocals parts and arranging the songs of the album. Last but not least, we'd like to thank our label, Logic Il Logic
Records, for the precious help in making this album possible".
Music is not the only distinctive side of Orphan Skin Diseases. Their artistic approach shows comprehensive research on the lyrical side, with
songs facing hard and challenging themes. The depletion of earth’s resources and the dominance of financial lobbies are just a couple of
examples, along with a structured analysis of human emotions and personal life experiences.
The name of the band is taken from an international database granted to doctors around the world, who can read and insert data about unusual
and unknown skin diseases; essentially another way to show a strong and helpful approach toward innocent and defenceless human beings.
"Dreamy Reflections" has been mixed and mastered @ Atomic Stuff Studio (Isorella - BS - Italy) by Italian sound engineer Oscar Burato
(Airbound, Firmo).

TASTE - Moral Decay.jpg
RELEASE 31 August 2018

TASTE was born on the day before new year’s eve 2009, when the two brothers, Christoffer and Felix Borg decided to make music together. The vision was to make classic 80s AOR, greatly inspired by FM, Giant and Strangeways.
Signing a deal with AOR Heaven, the self-titled album was released January 2013. The album received a lot of good reviews for their classic keyboard driven sound. After doing a few live performances the brothers joined ART NATION. During this Time, Christoffer started study to become a music producer and they decided to leave TASTE aside until there was enough time to do it properly.
After a four year hiatus the brothers finally found the time to work together again. With a brand new single, ”We Are Back ”, released on their own, they signed a new deal with AOR Heaven, and in August 2018 they’ll release their highly anticipated second album, ” Moral Decay ”.

“Moral Decay” is recorded and mixed at Top Floor Studios, Gothenburg, by Christoffer Borg (Anthrax, Amaranthe, Danko Jones). The album is mastered by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Amaranthe, Epica).

Into Eternity - The Sirens (2018)

Album Cover - Into Eternity - Sirens 2018.jpg

RELEASE : 26 October 2018

Founded in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada in 1997, Into Eternity is a cornerstone in the Canadian metal scene. Started by Tim Roth (guitars, vocals), Into Eternity quickly caught the attention of a small Dutch label that released their self-titled debut in 1999.

The next nine years for the band was a flurry of writing and recording, with the band recording a total of five full-lengths. “Dead or Dreaming” (2001) was picked up by Century Media Records, which catapulted the band into international acclaim and garnered them spots on tours with the likes of Dying Fetus and Katakylsm. Keeping with the momentum, “Buried In Oblivion” came along in 2004, followed by “The Scattering of Ashes” (2006) and “The Incurable Tragedy” (2008), the latter two featuring Stu Block (Iced Earth) on vocals.

With the exception of two singles, the band put recording on hold for a decade to tour internationally. With the departure of Stu Block, the addition of soprano vocalist Amanda Keirnan started a new era for the band. She joined the band as the touring vocalist in 2013, and after becoming a permanent member, her impressive wide-range vocals made their recorded debut on the band’s upcoming sixth full-length album “The Sirens” set for release in 2018.

Into Eternity borrows from all aspects of heavy music to form the perfect blend of technicality, memorable songwriting, traditional heavy metal and the sheer savagery of metal’s extreme genres. With extensive touring history, including sharing the stage with household names like Judas Priest, Megadeth and Arch Enemy, Into Eternity takes the listener on an epic journey; combining the jarring aggression of old school thrash and death metal, the speedy instrumental precision of shred and prog metal, with triumphant choruses and the melodies of classic metal.

Voodoo Diamond - Darkness Becomes Us (2018)

Voodoo Diamond is a Portuguese/New Zealandese/Japanese trio formed in London in 2013. Their influences go from alternative rock and metal (Metallica, Trivium, Killswitch Engage, As I Lay Dying, Parkway Drive), to hard rock and grunge (Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Linkin Park and even Portuguese folk such as Madredeus and Resistencia, which deeply influenced Filipe Martins (lead/rhythm guitar and vocals).

While thinking about the name of the band, Alex Dias (lead vocals) mentioned: “Guys, we all love Hendrix so what about Voodoo something?” The name ‘Voodoo’ comes from the iconic song ‘Voodoo Child (Slight Return)’ by Jimi Hendrix and ‘Diamond’ simply because it is the hardest kind of rock!

In 2015 Voodoo Diamond released their first EP entitled ‘Blindfolded’, mixed and mastered by ex-Sikth lead singer Justin Hill and produced by Filipe Martins. At the time the band was still experimenting with a lot of different genres, trying to find themselves musically and hence the title Blindfolded. It is comprised of 5 tracks, all very different, denoting the band’s pursuit for ‘their sound’.

In late 2015 Doug Rimington assumed bass duties. Doug is originally from New Zealand, multi-instrumentalist and can actually speak Japanese!

Voodoo Diamond then self-released a self-titled EP consisting of 3 songs, 2 of them available on YouTube as videos. The video for ‘G.I.A.’ in particular, caught the label Musicarchy Media’s attention, who decided to sign them.

The result of this cooperation is Voodoo Diamond’s first full-length ‘Darkness Becomes It’, produced by Scott Atkins (Cradle Of Filth, Amon Amarth), mixed and mastered by Fredrik Nordstrom (Bring Me The Horizon, Arch Enemy, Architects, In Flames, Soilwork, Opeth). ‘Darkness Becomes It’ shall be released on June 22nd 2018 via Musicarchy Media and distributed by H’Art Musik and Plastichead.

The first single and video ‘Deny’ comes out on May 10th.

Corpus Delicti - Break Everything (2018)

Image may contain: one or more people

Corpus Delicti, formed in 2013 by drummer Simon Bommeli, guitarists Manuel and Jonas Ehrismann and vocalist Sileno Püntener, is a Swiss thrash metal band. Due to difficulties in finding a bass player, Sileno decided to play the bass guitar himself.

What started with jamming and covering songs led to a motivated band with self-composed songs. In winter 2015, there was a first line-up change: Tiziano Iannuzzo replaced Jonas Ehrismann, who had quit playing in the band. After that, first thoughts of publishing an album came to their minds.

First steps were made in 2016, when the band started recording their songs in the studio. Im summer 2017, the recording, mixing and mastering was done. Furthermore, in the same year, Corpus Delicti played their first live shows.

In spring 2018, the time had come: The debut album BREAK EVERYTHING was finally released. First only through the band, some months later also through the label Blood Rite Records, with which the band started working in the same year.

Solarcycles - Ethereal Storms (EP 2017)

Solarcycles can be characterized best as a folk metal/rock band, but in reality Solarcycles’ music is a unique combination of influences from different genres. The roots of Solarcycles are in Hoofddorp the Netherlands where singer/bassist Sascha and guitarist/grunter Iwan wrote the first songs in 2014 in which the atmospheric elements of Celtic folk music where combined with the powerful characteristics of metal and rock music. Soon drummer Ralf joined the band and when violinist Silvana and keyboardist Frank joined the band in 2015 Solarcycles was complete.
Solarcycles worked hard on its unique sound in which tight drums and harsh melodic guitar riffs form the basis of heavy compositions in which floating classical and Celtic violin and melodic keys echo traditional Celtic and Scandinavian folk music. Solarcycles’ compositions are completed and made extra special by vocals influenced by British Indie pop combined with Celtic melodies.
During Celtic New Year in 2017 Solarcycles released their first EP Ethereal Storms. Since then the band finally shared their music with the world. During December 2017 the band participated in a band contest Grote Prijs van de Bollenstreek (since 1990) and got selected to participate in the semifinals. Solarcycles won the semifinals and then participated in the finals at gebr. de Nobel in Leiden.

Armed with many good reviews Solarcycles is ready to hit the stage! Praised for its stage performance and stage decoration for being “spot on” reviewers say Solarcycles “Would certainly not be out of place at one of the big Fantasy festivals”. And in fact that is what Solarcycles’ have been dreaming of all this time: to be asked to perform at amazing festivals. Hopefully this dream will become reality!

Barros - More Humanity Please... (2018)

cover FB only.jpg
Portuguese hard rockers BARROS have just inked a worldwide record deal with ROCKSHOTS RECORDS for the release of their new album “More Humanity Please…” ,  mixed and mastered by Harem Scarem singer Harry Hess in Canada.

BARROS is a solo project of Tarantula‘s guitar player Paulo Barros, alongside brilliant and talented musicians such as singer Ray Van D, responsible of all the lyrics.
The album is comprised of very melodic and simple structures with a direct message, with an “all about the song” approach.

Ray Van D’s lyrics explore themes as diverse as “Love as a driving force that goes beyond” and “Come what may feel”, to a critical take on the formatting of Art and Music produced by corporations, “fast food music”; as well as an invitation on the reflection on the ephemerality of Life, the lack of humanity in the World today and the banality of violence in social media, our dependence on technology and a dose of humor that is Murphy’s law:
“Where if anything can go wrong, it will go wrong in the worst way at the worst time and in such a way as to cause the greatest possible harm”

“More Humanity Please…” is made of 10 songs of melodic hard rock and the outstanding artwork was in charge of the Brazilian artist Gustavo Sazes (Gus G, Jeff Scott Soto, Kamelot, etc…), set to be released on June 29th 2018.

For fans of Whitesnake, Van Halen, Harem Scarem

“More Humaniy Please…” tracklist:
01. My Everything
02. Disconnect
03. Kingdom For A Day
04. Take Me As I Am
05. Tearing Us Apart
06. When It rains It pours
07. Live Before We Die
08. A love That Shines
09. More Humanity Please
10. How Does It Feel

CHARLOTTE IN CAGE - Times Of Anger (2018)

All girl Italian riot metal group Charlotte In Cage are putting a voice to their ideas with their new album Times Of Anger. Citing influences such as Kittie, Hole, Pussy Riot, Moonspell and Marilyn Manson, it’s clear these girls have something to say and aren’t about to hold back.

The album has varied and unique sounds that perfectly express the differences in the musical background of the band members. All this was important to Charlotte In Cage, as they didn’t want to set limits in their creation. Therefore, the primary function of their work is that of “artistic expression without limits in itself”.

One of the main concepts of the album is the social denouncing of oppression and injustice, particularly involving women, and found in different environments and social structures. This is the lens through which we tend to distort reality. Songs like Times Of Anger or I Hate Myself were specifically designed to highlight this concept and the related message.

Times Of Anger | Released June 5th, 2018 on Sliptrick Records

Track Listing:
01. Liar | 02. I Hate Myself | 03. Yours Faithfully | 04. Dionysus | 05. 13 Years Old | 06. Times Of Anger | 07. Monster I Became | 08. The Plastic Beast

Mixed and mastered at Hombre Lobo Studio.

Charlotte In Cage are:
Antonella Della Monica – Vocals | Marianna Forino – Guitar | Annalisa Barra – Drums | Susanna Angelino – Bass

SHOTGUN RODEO - By Hook Or By Crook (2018)

RELEASE 24 August 2018

Formed in 2008, Shotgun Rodeo are a four piece heavy metal band hailing from the city of Trondheim, Norway. Seamlessly cruising across a sea of metal styles and sub-genres, Shotgun Rodeo surpasses any premeditated sonic expectations that the listener may have had before listening. The band don't like to be labeled as one genre, but if held at gunpoint they would refer to themselves as 'Heavy Metal on Steroids'. Following on from their pre- vious EP releases ‘Dead End Massacre’ (2012) and ‘Guilty as Charged’ (2013), the band really picked up some steam with the release of their debut fulllength album, ‘World Wide Genocide’ in 2015 and 'The New Standard' EP in 2016. These were highly praised by international press and magazines. Labeled as a band that is both nostalgic and forward thinking, Shotgun Rodeo is a band that will appeal to many different listeners from the metal world.

Never afraid the push the boundries, the band are now gearing up to release their second full length album, 'By Hook Or By Crook'. The diversity and technical proficiency of the album’s 13 tracks takes Shotgun Rodeo's sound even further then previous releases. It’s an interesting combination of styles which seems wayward upon first inspection, but overall their sound is incredibly methodical, and it’s this vast range of influence and Shotgun Rodeo’s clear knowledge and love for metal heritage that makes it work. At times, ‘By Hook Or By Crook’ feels like a release that could have been heard on Roadrunner Records during their heyday, but it could equally feel at home with along the likes of modern metal bands as Lamb Of God and Avenged Sevenfold. As only their second full length album Shotgun Rodeo have shown a lot of promise for what is yet to come

Conjure - Reflections (EP 2018)

With the release of the Reflections EP, Conjure brings a new sense of soundscape to an alternative genre.  Lush with driving progressions, an edgy but powerful vocal approach, and plenty of pop undertones, the record boasts the aesthetic of alternative rock anthems.
The first single, “Reverent”, pulls you in with its infectious hard edged groove, followed by its quickly building choruses and its impending ability to create a tidal wave of sonic emotion. Most important is the songs ability to build and breathe as it plays on.

“The song is set around mood swings, personal experience, and mistakes. The lyrics of this track actually directly reflect the opposite of its title.” explains vocalist Robert Kotlinksi of the bands single.

Although the single does speak volumes for the EP, to get a real understanding for where Conjure are coming from, it should be heard in its entirety.

“The single encompasses a lot of the same elements that the other songs share. Walls of sound, vocal harmonies over darker music, heavy drums, and driving bass are all key elements throughout the EP” says Kotlinski of creating the record.

Conjure began their course in 2015 writing music out of a shed. After a short while, they had enough songs to release an EP recorded themselves and mixed by Jay Maas of Defeater. Continuing on to play shows around the greater Jacksonville area of Florida, the band wrote more songs as they honed in on their performances and eventually had a new set of songs to record. Working with Stu Richardson (Thursday), the band released the Reflections EP in June. The body of works is a testament to where they are at with their sound right now.

Sharing the stage with the acts like As Cities Burn, Movements, Sorority Noise, and more, the band is certainly not new to spreading the music through live performance.

Reflections is available for streaming and downloads on most major digital outlets the guys already have shows lined up in support of the release.

Motör Militia - World in Flames (2018)

The band's third studio album is a bold statement that reflects the revitalized line up's raging ambition!

'World in Flames' captures Motör Militia firing on all cylinders tearing through eight ferocious all new original Thrash Metal anthems!

The album tells the epic tale of evil and destruction through the ages approaching end times.  Leaning heavily on the writings of scripture, history and conspiracy theories as sources of influence and inspiration.

The tale begins with the epic "Zul" depicting the hero of old 'Dhul Qarnayn' waging war on the chaotic evil of Gog and Magog.  "Ascendancy" continues the tale illustrating the building and forging of the wall to separate the world of man from that of the forces of Gog and Magog. The victory users in times of peace and progress for man but it doesn’t last.

We continue the saga with "Illuminate" as sailors end up stranded on a desert island they notice a monastery located on the hill.  As the trees do not appear to bear any fruit in their search for food and shelter they approach the structure only to be lured by the beast they find changed and locked away. The beast known as the “Eye”, the false messiah.  Under its spell they aid in its release.  As the beast escapes it vows to reap havoc on man for locking it up for millennia.

With evil back in the world man has been corrupted and organized groups of agents of evil bind themselves in blood and ritual to their evil ends.  "Altar" envisions these societies’ inaugural rituals that look to serve the Eye in return for worldly fortune and pleasures.  As these secret societies being to reign supreme over worldly affairs of politics and finance "Supremacy" portrays the corrupt in positions of power and influence revealing themselves to the masses in a display of total domination as service to the Eye.

"Fallacy" shows the world falling into oblivion.  With the flood gates open evil is boundless and running amok.  These new heights of evil bring forth the “Heretic Eye” as it rises the False Messiah lays waste to the world of man, enslaving them to do his bidding.

Seemingly without hope of redemption what little is left of man untainted by evil await the resurrection of the true Messiah.  "Reckoning" brings the saga full circle setting up for the final epic battle between good and evil.  Exposing the treacherous devices of the corrupt bringing them to a swift end.

Profane Burial - The Rosewater Park Legend (2018)

In 2013 the two keyboardists Kjetil Ytterhus (Omnia Moritur) and André Aaslie (Funeral,
Images At Twilight, Abyssic a.o) founded Profane Burial. About a year later they had enough material to a debut album, and started looking for musicians to cooperate and play live with.
This was not a process without adversities, and it was not until 2016 they finally found the
right people to complete the puzzle. This was the beginning of a unique collaboration
between the talented guitarist Jostein Thomassen (Source Of Tide, Fracture), the up and
coming drummer Bjørn Dugstad Rønnow (Sphere, Viper Solfa, Trollfest) and the very experienced vocalist Ronny Thorsen, known from such acts like Trail Of Tears and Blood Red Throne a.o. Profane Burial also performed their first concert later that year; December 2016.

The band went into the reputable Strand Studio to record and mix the album during spring
2017. Through Apathia Records the album was finally released March 23. 2018.

Cat and The Queen - Loba Loca (2018)

Cat and The Queen has been the brainchild of songwriter Cat Montgomery since 2014. Playing piano from a very young age and being involved with theatre, acting, writing directing, and sound design as a teenager, Montgomery has had a lot of creative outlet to work with. Though she’d been writing songs for years, it took time for the artist to become comfortable with her voice. After some vocal lessons and plenty of practice, she started to perform live. Early on, most of her performances were more cabaret and satirical allowing her to let loose and be on stage as her quirky, talkative self, but as time went on, her style evolved.

After a few years of solo gigs, she began working with outside musicians. At the present, and on the Loba Loca record, her lineup includes Dave Love on drums, Brent Maidens on bass, and Alex Gamble on guitar, while live shows include Tal Davidson on guitar and Max Kaye on vocals.

Cat and The Queen’s live performances are as unique as the music itself. So much so, that Montgomery herself has given the live show a name and description.

“Cat and The Queen proudly presents Love in Space! A radiantly raucous live rock show, theatricalizing the release of her newest album Loba Loca. Her signature brand of musical storytelling will be taken to new intergalactic heights, as she fuses theatre, rock show, and dance party all into one electrifying evening. Ziggy Stardust meets Barbarella.”

The band already has shows booked this summer in support of the release.

Great Leap Skyward - Map Of Broken Dreams (2018)

GLS Cover 1500x1500.jpg
RELEASE 31 August 2018

Out of the ashes of KNIGHTMARE, GREAT LEAP SKYWARD is an Australian supergroup featuring members of KNIGHTMARE, 4 ARM and SEPTERRUS. After the release of KNIGHTMARE's debut album “In Death’s Shadow“ in 2014 and the departure of their vocalist in 2015, the band decided to make a new start with a new name and brand. The band was looking for a new singer for a while, not knowing that the whole time their new vocalist was already in their ranks. Taking two years during the production of the album to train his voice, guitarist Luke Besley stepped up and delivered a more than album worthy performance.
Great Leap Skyward takes on an epic and progressive approach to their sound with “Map Of Broken Dreams“, in what has resulted in a sonic metal assault on the senses that could only be classified as “Cinematic Progressive Metal”. After years of writing, recording and touring, Great Leap Skyward look to leave their traditional roots behind and true to their name, forge a new sound devoid of any restrictions and limitations. Written and produced by new frontman Luke Besley and mastered by the legendary Ermin Hamidovic (PERIPHERY, PLINI, ANIMALS AS LEADERS, DEVIN TOWNSEND), “Map Of Broken Dreams” is a refreshing, yet aggressive take on progressive metal that is sure to turn a few heads. GREAT LEAP SKYWARD is comprised of vocalist and guitarist Luke Besley, bassist Matt McConaghy, drummer David Allen and guitarist Jim Munro (who is best known as the guitarist of Australia’s past premier thrash outfit 4ARM, who toured with Slayer and Gojira in 2013 across North America). Forget everything you've heard before. This album will show you a never heard side of progressive metal and opens up new dimensions!
