Finnish psychedelic rock act
has released single
'Beyond the Realization'

Finnish psychedelic rock act Astral Bazaar
has released a new single entitled "Beyond the Realization".

Helsinki based Astral Bazaar's new song
dives deep deep into one's mind with its smoothly floating melodies,
mellow groove, and rich harmonies.
The song's introspective lyrics
pull the listener into a mystically self-aware mindset.
In this respect the song continues both the theme and story
of the band's previous album "A Sudden Realization", released in 2021.
Band comments the making of their new single:
"Our original intention was to include this song on the album A Sudden Realization that was released last year. In fact some of the song's musical elements were there already before we started making any other material for the album. However, in the end we decided that the song would perhaps work better on its own, and the listeners could then reflect the lyrics of the song on the story of the album."

Finnish modern rock metal band
has released single
'Save A Life Tonight'

Finnish modern rock metal band Frail's latest single release
"Save A Life Tonight"
is a true story that deals with the fear of losing your own child.
The lyrics describe the symphony of fear, unfairness and helplessness
that rang out in one's head at the exact moment
when the doctors took a heavily sedated and babbling child
to open heart surgery.
Even if there are no direct musical comparisons for the song,
'SALT' will probably find its way into the playlists of those
who like the music of Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin and Shinedown.
Tarmo Kellomäki, the songwriter:
"Save A Life Tonight' is really personal and important song to me. It opens up my feelings and thoughts in a moment when doctors were taking my own child to a heart surgery. When the operating room's door closes I am left alone with my desperate feelings of unfairness and fear. I remember I shouted to the heavens 'punish me and not that child!''
Besides the story itself another notable point about this song is
that Tarmo's other son Roope Kellomäki plays electric guitar
on this recording.
Kellomäki continues:
'Without going into details this song isn't about Roope. But I wanted that he would be playing the guitars as this whole thing has touched my whole family. And as a father it was really breathtaking to record a story like this with own child playing the guitar tracks. Really important moment that I shall remember forever.'

StreetLore Band
Finnish melodic death metal
will release album
'Rogue Five'

Finnish melodic death metal band Admire the Grim is set to release
their debut EP 'Rogue Five' on January 13th 2023 via Inverse Records.
Admire the Grim is a melodic death metal band from Lappeenranta, Finland. The group was formed by five friends in early 2021.
In May 2022 the band released its first single ‘Storm the Barricade’
and in September 2022 music video and single for ‘Rogue Five’
saw the daylight.
Jani comments on Single 'Rogue Five':

“My goal was to write a song that has a catchy chorus and lead parts. There’s good energy and spirit for a sweet party. I wrote the intro riff first and that set the song up for a fast paced guitar riffage. And to be honest, this is definitely a song for guitar maniacs”.
In November 2022 the second single ‘The Flood’ from ‘Rogue Five’ -EP
will be released and the EP itself is published
on January 13th 2022 via Inverse Records.
The band comments on the beginnings of the group:

“In the turn of 2020-2021 childhood friends Jani (guitar) and Kalle (bass) started to write songs and plan putting a band together. They asked friends to join and soon Sirja (guitar) and Tommi (drums) jumped in. Lastly Katri (vocals) found her way to the group and the band was complete.

After some get togethers and song writing sessions started relentless rehearsing (not forgetting the parties at Kalle's house ofc). We all had very different backgrounds in both music and life, which eventually somehow proved to be a fully functional chaos. The soundscape of our music bases heavily on 90's and 00's melodic death metal, but each of us have thrown in our individual musical backgrounds in search of the band's sound. We feel like we've developed so much in just over a year and still (and forever) progressing.”

Track list:

The album debuted at #1 on both iTunes Metal
and GooglePlay Metal Charts.
Lionheart stormed into the scene again in January 2016 with
»Love Don’t Live here«.
The album title, a nod to a classic R&B/ Motown Song by the same name, shows the band's unwillingness to conform to the typical „hardcore mold“, as well as the bitter
and unforgiving lyrical content the band is known for.
November 2017 saw Lionheart unleash »Welcome To The Westcoast II«.
A sequel to »Welcome To The Westcoast« (2014),
the album brought forth a new era in California Hardcore,
and saw them again debut at #1
across the iTunes Metal Charts and Google Play Metal Charts.
2019, after endless touring around the Globe,
Lionheart returned with their most punishing Album to date:
»Valley Of Death«.
Backed by a combination
of blistering metallic hardcore and heavy West Coast groove,
front-man Rob Watson provides an insight into a life of torment,
violence, and an unrelenting will to overcome.
With »Valley Of Death« Lionheart climbs
into the German Top 20 Album Charts, as well as #1
on iTunes Metal Charts and Google Play Metal Charts.

StreetLore Band
British metalcore act
will release album
'Bloom Season'

What do you get when you combine ferocious, hard-hitting metalcore
in a blender with elements of hip-hop, grime,
hardcore and alternative metal—then finish it off
with a dash of introspection and more than its fair share of
brazen, no-holds-barred atmosphere?
You get Borders, a young but driven collective
hellbent on taking the heavy music community by storm
with an onslaught of
thought-provoking, sinister and brutally aggressive tracks.
Built around an impetus that obliterates any notion
of single-genre classification in favor
of an immersive yet punishingly heavy experience,
Borders continually push the limits of what one would expect
from any band in the metalcore circuit.
From taking the UK’s live music scene by storm
supporting legendary deathcore act Martyr Defiled
on their last run to their immersive, conceptual,
and thought-provoking 2019 debut full-length release »Purify«,
the band is well on their way to making themselves
a staple in the underground heavy music community.
a goal sure to be achieved with their addition
to Arising Empire’s ever-growing roster.

Borders is:
Jordan Olifent
Gavin Burton
guitar & vocals
Tom Britton
Dan Hodson
