IDUNA - Here We Are Alone

Toronto based rockers Iduna just released their new single Here We Are Alone , a wonderful , full of energy alternative/hard rock track. While the title would suggest otherwise, the song offers a thread of optimism for those feeling isolated and alone. A rallying cry reminding everyone that we’re all in this together, and a plea for a more inclusive future. Even in moments of isolation or despondency, remember that the world is full of kind-hearted souls eager to connect and overcome.

Building on the sounds of  The Smashing Pumpkins, Matthew Good Band, Biffy Clyro, and Kings of Leon with a political tinge, their songs are replete with questions about modern morality and the state of being an empathetic person in a world complicit with injustice.

Through dual melodies produced by vocalists/guitarists Jason Craig and Trison Boyes, overlaid upon the raw and wild grooves of bassist Tim Saulnier and drummer Gabriel Lavoie, Iduna explores the harmony found in our struggles and kinship. Music offers both respite and exploration of these challenges, and Iduna aims to share that experience with whoever will join them.

Band Members:

Jason Craig- Guitar and Vocals
Trison Boyes- Guitar and Vocals
Tim Saulnier- Bass
Gab Lavoie - Drums

SPüNDAY - Weekend Dads

South Wales rockers SPüNDAY just released their third track Weekend Dads. This one is for six string lovers only. Lunatical guitars weave their way through a tale of late night clubbing and the benefits of being kicked out of your marital home. Paraphrasing Shakespeare, riding on rollercoasters and dancing with Go-Go girls.

SPüNDAY were formed after watching Melt Banana perform at Club Ifor Bach in Cardiff. Seeing and hearing the sonic mash-up and effects pedal madness that the band were playing inspired them to really try and push the boundaries of what you can do with a song using only guitar, bass and drums. They have been together about two years and are now ready to be unleashed on the public with a second track off their forthcoming debut album.

You can view the video of this incredible track here:

Hold On is the latest single from the Cleveland rockers Hollin Kings. It's a music dynamite with a rocking riff that will get you moving.

The musicians in Hollin Kings grew up in the same town and bonded over their shared passions for music of the past and present. Each member brings a unique musical style to the band and over the past 2 years they ’ve grown comfortable in mashing those individual influences into one sound that is Hollin Kings.

With such quality songs as Hold On, this band has all the potential to become the next big thing in the rock scene.

KILLIT - Born Too Late

London based hard rockers Killit just released their new single Born Too Late. A dialogue about the music that has inspired people of the years and stood the test of time. It describes the advent of streaming and the loss of emphasis on an album as a body of work and asks if music like that now only resides in a time goneby. Is there still a hunger by people for guitar based bands who craft albums rather than churning out quickly consumed streams? 

Born Too Late is a great piece of pure hard rock reminding the late 80's and early 90's era. You can recognize clear influences by bands like Alter Bridge, Guns N Roses, AC/DC and Aerosmith.

Killit have been bringing their brand of modern edged classic rock to the UK since 2016, playing Ramblin Man Fair, Hard Rock Hell, Giants of Rock, O2 Academy, Electric Ballroom and sell out shows at London’s Underworld. Recent supports include a tour with metal legends Diamond Head and opening for Skid Row at Kentish Town Forum.

Band Members:

Gaz Twist - Vocals
Niro Knox - Guitar
Claire Genoud - Guitar
Ben Smart - Bass
Pete Jean - Drums

Weapons is a very interesting death metal album, recently released by German band Cryptic Crown. A cruel and brutal work with influences from classic Death Metal bands like Bolt Thrower, Benediction, Morbid Angel but also Thrash Metal bands like Sodom, Kreator and Overkill and even Black Metal bands like Bathory, Emperor and Dissection.

The Album focuses on the evil and bad things the human soul is able to create. Title track "Weapons" describes the love of a man for his guns and how he is feeling mighty because he can kill anyone with his weapon that opposes him in any way. The track "Crystal Meth" is about someone who is basically rotting from the inside because of meth abuse but ignores that because the drug makes everything nice. In the Track "Nuclear Apocalypse" human kind is destroyed because of a nuclear war. 

Cryptic Crown is an independent death metal band from Velbert, Germany. Founded in 2012 by members of the disbanded Insidious and Unhold. Often compared to early Bolt Thrower, Cryptic Crown plays death metal with influences from thrash metal that show society it's ugly face in the mirror. Playing live since 2013, Cryptic Crown started to record their first Album "Weapons" in 2017. Due to being an independent band the process of recording and mixing took it's time until it was finally finished in 2019. On 18th October 2019 "Weapons" was finally released digitally world wide and Cryptic Crown is already in the process of writing new songs for a new album.

Cryptic Crown organizes the live concert event "Cryptic Nightmare" that takes place irregularly in the Underground club in Wuppertal, Germany. What first started as a simple birthday party for Cryptic Crowns guitar player Joschko, developed into a full live concert event for lesser and better known bands like "Backfired.Hate", "Pripjat" and "Phobiatic" around north western Germany. Traditionally Cryptic Crown plays as opener there so the band members can enjoy the other bands and party with the fans. 

Band Members:
Zimbo (Guitar)
Joschko (Guitar)
Joce (Drums)
Dennis (Vocals & Bass)

French hard rockers THE BEAUTIFUL LOSERS just released the new album Bar. A pure rock 'n' roll work, full of energy with songs that make you bang your head until the last second. Powerful and melodic, it constitutes a dose of invigorating energy and is easy to listen even for the ears not familiar with the powerful tones and the universe of hard rock.
Based in France, THE BEAUTIFUL LOSERS delved into the rock 'n' roll scene quite a while ago, branded with red hot steel and electrified by guitar riffs.
It was only long after their teenage years that their leader decided to make his own album, with a few associates and whatever means available.

Seriously though, THE BEAUTIFUL LOSERS aren’t here to tell you the story of their lives, they are here to pay tribute to the virtues of rock n roll and for all the rock n roll warriors out on the roads, equipments crammed into their vehicles, to go out and play in all the most far back bars, where the last free places of social melting pots still exist, where sharing and contacts between people of different social backgrounds are still possible, far from all the cold soulless misery of social interactions in which our world has fallen into.
Rock n roll has this power of transmitting energy, to make us all stronger, irreverent, untamable, powerful, foul mouthed, foolish, in one word “FREE” !!

Band Members:

JACKY – Guitar
ARNAUD – Vocals
JACK – Bass
BRUNO – Drums

Berlin-based singer and actress Melanie Stahlkopf, who has already performed all over Europe with several projects, and Lars König (g, LIONCAGE, ex SKYLINE) who also took over all the studio work, decided to start something new to explore new grounds.

Joining König and Stahlkopf in SHE BITES are Carsten Kohl (d, THREE WISHES) and Arvid Lucas (b, LIONCAGE).

Within only nine month, the album “Joyride“ was completed. A video for their first single  - also called “Joyride“ - has been shot and released on May 29th, 2020.
The blistering song “Rock This Night“ features Olaf Senkbeil (v, DREAMTIDE, he worked with BLIND GUARDIAN and many others) as guest. Melanie and Olaf are a perfect match.

SHE BITES is a perfect combination: Amazing harmony vocals, big drums and strong guitars with huge hook lines all over the place accompanied by a contemporary production.
Joyride“ offers the best of the 80’s in an exciting way, a fairy wheel ride on a summer’s day. For fans of ROXETTE, ROBIN BECK, FIONA and STARSHIP.
