An old rule says that musicians usually write their best material when they leave all commercial considerations; market analyses and the public’s supposed expectations aside and simply follow their innermost artistic instinct. Which is precisely how Alpha Tiger from Freiberg in Saxony went about writing and recording their most recent oeuvre, and the result is an offering that’s as impressive as it is surprising: their latest, self-titled release sounds rock-oriented and melodic, anthemic and diverse, and – thanks to its completely analogue production – wonderfully organic. “This is the album that I’ve always wanted to make,” explains Peter Langforth, the band’s guitarist and songwriter. “It’s definitely our most mature and grown-up release to date.” Continue reading →

8th June 2017 – North Wales Metalcore quintet Rosen Bridge are pleased to unveil their striking new video for single ‘Brand New’ . Vocalist Antony Jones reveals of the track: “It is about appreciating what you have and being thankful for the people that support you. When you’re in a negative spiral it’s really hard to realize the little things that people may be doing to help you. Reflectively, it can make you feel better by being thankful and taking steps towards a positive mindset.” Shot at Manchester’s Brunswick Mill studios with Matty Daley of Clearway Media, the visuals and energy change as the song gets heavier. The track is taken from their May sophomore release ‘Dreamcatcher’, available to stream and for digital download via major platforms. Continue reading →

The Providence, the H. P. Lovecraft-inspired fourth LP by German doom/sludge quartet,OBELYSKKH, sees its stateside release today through Exile On Mainstream Records and the label’s new US distribution. The Providence was recorded and mixed by Andy Naucke and mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, Tragedy, High On Fire, From Ashes Rise, Integrity), and again sees cover art crafted by Sebastian Feld/Marginal Ink.
OBELYSKKH‘s The Providence is available on all digital platforms, CD, and 2xLP with three sides of music and a Side D etching;
Following the 2013 release of the band’s groundbreaking third album, Hymn To Pan, which struck less than one year after its predecessor, White Lightnin’, the Franconian doomsters found themselves in a state of turmoil and a line-up change with bass player Dirty Dave being replaced by Seb Duster. These ups and downs, alongside the massive honesty and emotionalism in the band’s routines, developed monstrous pressure, which is sonic-ally channeled into this album, The Providence surging with massive weight, groove, and darkness. The album sees OBELYSKKH leaving huge parts of their former approach behind. Less psychedelic, with more groove — not stoner rock, but more on the side of doom than grueling sludge – yet still delivered in a crushing maelstrom.
The title of the new OBELYSKKH excursion might remind one of H. P. Lovecraft’s iconic poem, and you’d not be wrong, as these classic words provided inspiration for lyrical content and the artwork for The Providence. But that’s only one dimension. The other is illustrated almost perfectly by French revolutionist Victor Hugo: “Above all, you can believe in Providence in either of two ways, either as thirst believes in the orange, or as the ass believes in the whip.” The band lived by this message, beating the record out of themselves, fighting an uphill battle.
Inspired by Alter Bridge, Alice In Chains, Metallica, Judas Priest, Godsmack and Kings X, ABANDONED SOULS’ sound is powerful, heavy, rhythmic, melodic, and personal.
