Gentle Savage releases a new single & video called ”Karelian Magic”

Lately the Finnish band Gentle Savage has been working with producer Timo Kämäräinen and mixing engineer Jesse Vainio. With their contribution, the bad has found a more musical, yet rougher sound.

Watch the music video for Karelian Magic on youtube:

Listen to the single:

Vocalist Tornado Bearstone says:
Karelian Magic is a fairly personal love song, but one side of the story is universal; every man who loves his woman, knows what it means to be under her spell. It's a positive spell that empowers you. About the awesome female voice you hear on the track; that`s my friend Rita Lovely singing there. I think Rita's vocal parts really spiced up the song.

The video happens in a modern, fast moving graphic environment. Director Saku Perintö from Lumifilms got this idea of putting some magic into the video. Therefore the video is built on graphic shapes, optical illusions and storytelling.

About the band:
Gentle Savage started out on one July morning when Tornado Bearstone was looking at the sunrise, thinking about the meaning of life. Suddenly he got the idea of starting a new rock band. Drums, bass, guitar, hammond organ, piano and good vocal parts. That seemed to be the right recipe. 

Six months after that morning the band was rehearsing with the first line up. It took years to find the right people to deliver the right sound and the right attitude. It wasn't until spring  2016 when  the official Gentle Savage MK1 was formed. Rooted deep in classic rock, blues and hard rock this new solid lineup started playing their rock music with honesty and pride.

The first EP came out January 13th 2017. along with some shows and a video for the song Far Side In 2019  it is time to release some new material and start playing shows with the new MK2 line up:
Tornado Bearstone - vocals/guitars;
Jay B. - drums, backing vocals;
Sami Virtanen - guitar, backing vocals;
L.A.Arthur - keyboards, backing vocals;
Jarkko.A.Ahonen - bass, backing vocals;

De Lirium's Order Has Released Their Fourth Album Singularity.

Finnish technical death metal act De Lirium’s Order is releasing their fourth album Singularity today, April 26th 2019. via Inverse Records.

De Lirium’s Order was formed in 1998. by guitarist Juha Kupiainen and today, it is one of the most praised groups in technical death metal. Drawing inspiration also from thrash and progressive metal, De Lirium’s Order is known for their creative, experimental guitar riffs, solos and drum patterns. The current line-up consists of musicians from the acts like Abbath, Omnium Gatherum and Raskasta Joulua. The band’s previous album release Veniversum (2012) gets now a much awaited continuum with Singularity which again opens new musical pathways for the band through the album’s futuristic, ambitious concept.


Juha Kupiainen comments: After releasing our previous album Veniversum, we have kept low profile until we were contacted by an unknown agent who encouraged us to compose new music that reaches beyond the stars.

We aligned our thoughts with the concept of Singularity, both technical and physical, and started our journey to create the conceptual, explorative and the very best album ever to come out from the oven of De Lirium’s Order.

About the production of the album, Kupiainen states: Several compositions date back to 2010. After receiving the inspiration for Singularity in 2013, I had to be patient enough to mature the ideas and compose new tracks over the course of five years. I have had the best possible lineup to program, arrange and perform the music to forge this album in its full-length.

Singularity’s cover art was created by the renowned light artist Hannu Huhtamo. For the promotional photographs, Huhtamo also embedded the band amidst his creative light art illustrations. In order to capture the band group photo, the band was asked to stay completely still for 3 minutes while he was painting light around them.

Tracklist:
1. I Have Awakened (Intro)
2. Ayatollah
3. Singularity
4. Surfaced
5. The Billion Year Contract
6. Acoustic Medley
7. Orion's Cry
8. Piazzolla
9. The End of Time

Thrash from North Karelia - Maniac Abductor released a new music video

North Karelian thrashers Maniac Abductor have released a new music video for the song Fooled Again, taken from their upcoming debut album.

A thrash Metal band from Joensuu (Finland), Maniac Abductor, will release their debut album called Casualties of Causality on May 10th 2019. via Inverse Records. Now the band has released the first single/music video Fooled Again from the album which you can watch here: https://youtu.be/GWXML6-9jF8.

The band comments:
"The road from our previous release music video/single Fight or Die to the release of our debut album has been long but rewarding. The composing process of the album has made us grow as a musicians and Fooled Again is a primary example of that. It was the first brand new song composed for the album. It contains the attitude and aggressiveness combining the new and old school elements, which has worked as a foundation of our Thrash Metal. Sound vice for the album we were looking for more grandiosity and tightness, and we achieved that in the studio with Fooled Again, which we have used as a base for the album".

Atmospheric metal band Alase to release debut album in June - first single out now!

Finnish atmospheric metal band Alase is set to release their long-awaited debut album Vastaus on June 7th 2019. via Inverse Records.

Their music is a melting pot of various genres, but the main focus is on the melody and atmosphere. There are a lot of influences outside metal music as well. Lately Alase has added more and more elements from post rock and progressive metal. Musically, Alase has similarities with bands like Katatonia, Swallow the Sun, A Perfect Circle, The Ocean and Pain of Salvation, just to name a few.

Listen to Vastaus single on:
Youtube >>> https://youtu.be/JHNQS8yjxBA
Spotify >>> https://spoti.fi/2ID8sUN
Deezer >>> https://www.deezer.com/us/album/93772712

Guitarist/composer Janne Lunnas comments the single:
"Vastaus song represents many sides of Alase musically. It leads into the more progressive side and also shows the familiar melodic spheres that Alase is well-known about."

Alase’s guitarists Mikko and Janne started to write music for the debut album Vastaus during spring 2017. Later, in the same year’s autumn drummer Janne Kusmin decided to part from Alase as his primary band Kalmah was getting to be more busy with their newest album and touring. Mikko and Janne decided that it is better to do the Vastaus album with session drummer and they were lucky to find the right man, Toni Paananen (Malpractice), to do the job.


After the composing of the songs was finalized around February 2018, it was time to book a studio for tracking the drums. Toni Paananen played the drum parts for all 8 songs during one weekend at Värähtely Creative studio in Vallila, Helsinki, where studio engineer Janne Storm handled the recording.


Rest of the instruments and vocals by 6 different vocalists were recorded mostly in several home studios which took about 7 months to complete!

Vastaus album has been mixed and mastered by Ari-Pekka Repo and vocals on the album are mixed and produced by Markus Hirvonen. Music on the album is produced by Janne Lunnas. All Alase lyrics are written by Anni Aho. All the graphics and trailer video related to the album and digital singles are made by Sakke Paavola

Као специјални гости исто вече ће наступити све популарнији београдски бенд Asphalt Chant који свој звук темеље на dark и gothic сцени из осамдесетих.

Након концерта слиди dark party на ком ће фронтамен Phantasmagorie, иначе познати загребачки DJ Tomi Phantasma и фронтамен групе Asphalt Chant, DJ Алимпије, пуштати dark, post punk, new wave, gothic, electro, synthpop... То јест групе попут oy Division, Bauhaus, The Cure, Siouxsie & The Banšees, Killing Joke, Čristian Death, The Sisters of Mercy, The Cult, Virgin Prunes, Marč Violets, Mizar, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, Swans, Fields of the Nephilim, Laibač, DAF, Nitzer Ebb, Front 242, Borghesia, Die Krupps, Rosetta Stone, Clan of Xymox, Diva Destruction, Cassandra Complex, Mortiis, Heroes Del Silencio, Simple Minds, Depeche Mode, Human League, Covenant, Placebo, EKV, Jesus & The Mary Čain, Nick Cave, Pixies, The Smiths, Editors, Interpol, Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, Marilyn Manson, London After Midnight, White Lies, She Wants Revenge, She Past Away, Ramones, Paradise Lost, Rammstein...

Enchantya' New Album Coming Out in May 2019.

Enchantya proudly present their new album On Light and Wrath, with a whole new band line-up, and featuring talented guests, such as brilliant violinist Gonçalo Fernandes, a choir of professional musical theatre singers and DESIRE’ s frontman Corvus (Tear). It is going to be released on May 24th 2019. by the Finnish label Inverse Records.

The next step in their melodic metal sound, On Light and Wrath is a musical essay about the two extremes of the human psyche and the struggle for balance within and outside the soul.

While staying true to the band’s musical roots, Enchantya now experiment and explore with their various influences, releasing their most heavy and bombastic songs, while also their most soothing sounds in this new opus, including revolution anthems, crestfallen love songs, dark fairytales and more, creating a journey that will stay with the listener long after the last song ends.

Music video is done for the track The Beginning which you can watch here: https://youtu.be/_GqZEaviolc

Singer Rute Fevereiro comments:
"The Beginning is a song about accepting and improving life the way it is and therefore, the first step is to get rid of toxic people who make you waste your energy on them. It's a new start of life"

The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Fernando Matias (Moonspell, Bizarra Locomotiva, We Are the Damned, Sinistro, etc.) at the Pentagon Audio Manufacturers

Guide for Music Unaware of Borders: International Compilation “Tajne mape podzemlja 2 / Secret maps of the Underground 2“ (Underground Music Collective, 2019)

Written by: Desya Lovorov.

After publishing of the first part of compilation, it seems that this story ends, for some time, but occasion for publishing the second part is more than justified: Underground Music collective was celebrating third year of existence on March 28th, 2019 – three magnificent years of cooperation within a little group of people, which thrive to know each other even in person, and still working on underground projects!

You can listen to the second part of compilation here.

First impressions on the second part of compilation are that it is a bit harsher and more experimental then the first part, but even though, general opinion and motivation why The Secret Maps of Underground 1 & 2 are published is diversity of genres and communal attempt to gather music which is unaware of borders, and borderlines of creativity, lean on unselfish enthusiasm and solidarity and give it to the music world for listening and enjoyment.

Продукција и поред тога што је лоша звучи као прикладан омаж европском black metalu са краја деведесетих, почетка двехиљадитих. Једино што је требало барем да вокале ставе у други план, пошто су невероватно напорни за слушање. Мало клавијатура убачених ту и тамо, подоста закивачких ритмова и зујеће-режећих гитара, бас који се не да разазнати од остатка инструмената - класика. 

Aornos: The Great Scorn
Мађарски one-man пројекат Aornos својим прошлогодишњим издањем није променио превише у односу на раније радове. Но, то не значи да је The Great Scorn лош. Напротив, ово је black metal какав и треба да буде - помало mardukast. На тренутке ме је подсетио на старији Arcturus. Веома добро издање које топло препоручујем.

Death is Death: Death Wears Suit
Албум финских трешера Death is Death је највећим делом невероватно досадан за слушање. Да није повремене промена темпа и пауза између песама, помислио бих да се један исти ритам констатно понавља. Утисак се не мења чак ни током споријих деоница. Испразно и беживотно издање.

Forth: Captivity
Канадско-фински бенд Forth би се могао дефинисати као neogrunge/alternative rock бенд. Мало духа Сијетла, мало Nickelacka, мало Black Stone Cherryja, али свега лепо дозираног. Од свега наведеног је пробрано најбоље, прилагођено шареноликијем аудиторијуму. Radio friendly? Апсолутно! Али, то у овом случају уопште није лоше.
★★★☆

GarhelenthAbout Pessimistic Elements & Rebirth of Tragedy
Оригинално ирански дуо је током година битисао у Грузији, док је тренутно у Јерменији. Свирају, сасвим предвидљиво, black metal, мада се на моменте да осетити и мало deatha. Коректно издање је у питању, без неких спектакуларних момената, те и више него подношљиво за слушање.
★★

Progeny of Sun: Progeny of Sun (EP)
Модерни melodeath на фински начин. Catchy, наравно, упаковано тако да слушаоца купи на прву лопту. После пар преслушавања није тешко закључити да је и ово само још једно у низу сличних издања које ем што не нуди нешто ново, већ ни сам приступ материји није свеж. Ипак, не може се бенду превише замерити због тога, пошто је одрађен генерално добар посао. Добро баратање инструментима, солидна продукција и, што је најбитније - песме држе пажњу. То је понекад и више него довољно.
★★

Red Moon Architect можда и јесу започели са радом као melodoom бенд, али овде имамо типичан funeral doom metal успорен готово до крајњих граница. Депресивно издање, дакако и предугачко, пошто се на њему налазе само три нумере које укупно трају нешто више од 40 минута. Мало кокетирања са dark ambientом и noiseом појачава утисак тескобе и потпуне измождености. 

The Sullen Route: Last Day in Utter Diseases
Волгоградски melodoom/melodeath бенд The Sullen Route je 2016. објавио своје последње издање и од тада је неактиван. Оно што се да закључити је да и те како умеју да направе добар албум. Са свирачке и идејне стране се нема шта замерити, али је продукција на Last Day in Utter Diseases могла бити много боља. Она највише квари крајњи утисак пошто албум више звучи као мало бољи демо. Но, вреди га преслушати.
★★

U. Pasanen Band: Long Long Way
Овакву музику ћу слушати за једно двадесетак година, дефинитивно. Блуз-рок са маторце који се приближавају пензији, у пабу обавезно седе за шанком и млађаном конобару у свакој могућој прилици откривају тајне универзума: како треба да звучи права музика, како се спрема савршен гулаш и каквог укуса мора бити добра ракија.
