Finnish-Canadian rockers
released live album
'One Night at the Theatre'

Finnish-Canadian rockers Forth released a live album
with accompanying videos of the performance.
Exactly one year earlier, the band had released their third studio album, self-titled "Forth".
Due to the challenges booking live music at that time during the pandemic, the band had been unable to tour to support the new release.
Instead, during the spring of 2022, they converged on the picturesque
Kvartetti Theatre in Lepsämä to record a live performance
of the entire album.
The result is a raw front-to-back live rendition of all the album tracks without any cutting, comping, overdubbing or post-production
beyond mixing and mastering.
The performances capture the energy of the band
and the power of their classic-inspired rock sound.
The featured single, 'Paralyzed', is a straight-up rocker
with late 80's flavours and tells of unrequited love
and the dangers wanting what you can't have.
Formed in 2010, Forth delivers hard rock
and grunge with melodic sensibilities.
Canadian lead singer/songwriter Brian Forth fronts the band
joined by Finnish rockers Tim Norrgrann (lead guitar),
Kari Storckovius (drums) and Mikael Söderbäck (bass).
Their first album, "Road Stories" debuted in 2014 and brought success
with the first single 'Up Up Away' climbing to number 2
on the Finnish iTunes rock charts.
The second single, 'Fairytale Princess' lasted a month in the top 5
of YLE Toppen charts.
After signing with Secret Entertainment,
Forth released sophmore album "Captivity" in March 2019.

Finnish progressive metal band
has released single/video

Finnish progressive metal band Joviac released
a new single and music video 'Dissemination'.
Since their latest single 'The Fine Line' the band has now expanded
from trio to quintet,
when Johannes Leipälä (Guitar) & Tuomas Honkkila (Keyboards)
were added to the line-up earlier this summer.
Viljami Wenttola's comments:
"When the global pandemic began and we all became familiar with the term "lockdown", I noticed that it wasn't the disease itself that was most anxiety and fear inducing for me personally, but the amount of misinformation and disinformation surrounding the disease. Fake news was rampant. People used the disease to further their at times questionable motives and armed themselves with arguments that supported only their own nefarious or ignorant ends. Suddenly everyone felt like they knew better than everyone else and trust in their "own research" was stronger than in the scientific community. In many ways the pandemic brought out the darkest sides of humanity. I channelled all of my pandemic anxiety and fear into this song and the result is definitely the heaviest song that we've ever released. I even tried out harsh vocals/growling for the first time!"

Italian hard & heavy project
has released single/video
'Crushing Your Life'

Sneakout Records & Burning Minds Music Group are glad to announce
the release of "Crushing Your Life", first single taken from "Desert",
the debut album of the Italian hard & heavy project Krell.
“Deserts” is the result of an intense musical collaboration between
the long-established singer and cofounder of Crying Steel, Luca Bonzagni, and Francesco Di Nicola (Danger Zone, Crying Steel, Anims).
They have never played in Crying Steel simultaneously:
their compositions, created and developed between 2013 and 2018,
have given rise to the artistic partnership
that then materialized into "God Is A Witness",
the debut album of the Anims project
(released on April 29, 2022 by Sneakout Records).
Now, with the project Krell, they both express themselves in their entirety.
For drums, Francesco Di Nicola, producer of the album, has made use
of the unquestionable artistic qualities of Paolo Caridi,
a musician with countless recording experiences
(Reb Beach, Geoff Tate, Michele Luppi)
including his current involvement in the American duo Ellefson-Soto.
Krell is the name of the group,
but it symbolically represents a precise objective:
it's a way for the artists to communicate in the most up-to-date way,
the pure manifestation of classic hard & heavy music
that they have both lived and experienced over the years.
The lyrics, composed by Luca Bonzagni, transmit emotions,
describe sensations, situations and express feelings:
elements that have inevitably influenced the singing itself
and inspired the title of the album.

The ten tracks were recorded at Pristudio in Bologna, Italy,
and have therefore benefited from the long experience of Roberto Priori, who as a sound engineer, as well as an expert musical artist
of the rock genre in its broadest sense,
has skillfully immortalised the instruments in order
to convey the precise intent of each song to the listener.

“Deserts” is set for release on November 25, 2022
via Sneakout Records / Burning Minds Music Group,
with worldwide distribution via Plastic Head.

Finnish Hard Rock Group
has released single/video

Finnish Hard Rock Group Jimbo's Garage has released a new music video
to the song "Echoes" from their self titled debut album.
The band's main architect and the drummer
Jimbo Mäkeläinen comments on the video:
"This song is a true sad story taken from man's real life. It is the ending track of the album and the final turning point where the album's massive hard rock sound turns into delicate acoustic echoes."

Jimbo is known as the former sticksman of Ironcross and Lordi.
Vocalists on the album are Taage Laiho (Kilpi, Altaria, Mad Hatter's Den), Peter James Goodman (Conquest, Metal Gods, STUD..)
and Maya Liittokivi (Deathlike Silence).
Guitars are played by Kari Riihimäki and bass by Jari Riitala.

The band's music is an interesting combination of modern heavy metal
and traditional hard rock.

Finnish Avant-garde metal act
will release 4th album
'No Sun Nor Moon'

Finnish Avant-garde metal band Wyrmwoods
is set to release a fourth studio album 'No Sun Nor Moon'
on November 4th 2022 via Inverse Records.

The band's sole member Nuurag-Vaarn comments:
"Wyrmwoods' fourth album 'No Sun Nor Moon' is a continuation of the last album's progressive avant-garde metal in a more focused and polished package of nine tracks. There are plenty of the familiar ambient and progressive rock influences heard on the album, which can be heard for example with some mixed meter time signatures and more use of the saxophone in the tracks. There's still plenty of room for more straight-forward and intense Black Metal parts on the album as well. The production is cleaner and less chaotic when comparing to the previous releases. There are also more Death Metal influences heard this time, most so on the single release Year of Dearth, for example the vocals are now primarily low growls."

Track list:
1. Where Was a Worm Before
2. Year of Dearth
3. Raged With Curses and Sparkles of Fury
4. Mother of Maladies
5. Woe and Wailing
6. Oberon's Forests
7. Over the Disorganized Immortal
8. Deeper Labyrinths of the Mind
9. Shadows of Our Past and Future

British teenage poprocker
is back with new single
'Just B U'
British teenage poprocker
is back with new single
'Just B U'

15-year-old Pop/Rock artist Belle releases her latest single 'Just B U'.

Belle's music draws inspiration from her own experiences
and how she overcame difficult times.
Her songs are powerful and uplifting, with an underlying message
of kindness, hope and strength through adversity.
'Just B U' is no different, a youthful Pop/Rock anthem
that advocates staying true to yourself,
even while people and circumstances try to change you.
Backed by foot-tapping rock grooves, powerful choruses
and catchy melodies that amplifies Belle's impassioned vocal performance and message to the forefront.
Speaking on the meaning behind 'Just B U' Belle says:
"I was being pushed into trying to change myself and to stop doing the things I loved doing, all to be accepted as part of a particular friendship circle. This all felt so wrong and confusing so I broke free. This song is a reflection on that time, I wrote 'Just B U' in lockdown when I had time and space to reflect."
To celebrate the release of 'Just B U' Belle will be embarking
on a 5-week school tour throughout the Midlands and Devon.
Belle will be performing and talking with schoolchildren years 3 to 10 (Key stage 2-3) about mental health, online safety
and cyberbullying including her own experiences.
The tour is overseen and promoted via The Prime Agency.
'Just B U' is slated for release on 28th October 2022
