German post-hardcore group
will release album

Post-hardcore outfit OUR MIRAGE announced
their third full-length album called »Eclipse«,
due for release on November 25th via Arising Empire.
The band also serves their first chapter 'Black Hole'
of their upcoming trilogy included on their brand new album.
'Deep inside your mind, it feels like being trapped by our own fears.
As fear overtakes more and more the sun and light vanish and leave nothing but darkness. You are caught in a black hole and while you’re struggling, you keep on falling. The longer you fall, the more you get pulled in. The happier you could be, the unhappier you become. Every night you feel the same and cannot escape. So when you put on your disguise, who knows what you are hiding? Deep within ourselves, fear overshadows our happiness. Even when little things are overwhelming, trust me, you’re not alone.'

Hailing out of Marl, Germany, this four-piece Post-Hardcore group
really hits you deep in your emotions.
From the ambient music to the emotional lyrics that really strike a nerve, OUR MIRAGE offers a vast variety of elements
that many of us can relate to.
This young group is becoming known for the emotion that they pour
into their music and their latest release »Unseen Relations«
takes that line even deeper.
The group largely focuses on the problems that our youth
deal with internally, but their music doesn't just speak to them;
it is very intuitive of the problems and struggles
that we all deal with on a common basis.
"The Post Hardcore, clearly inspired by The Amity Affliction, is composed confidently, professionally produced, and performed in an appealing manner."'

Finnish gothic metal act
have released their single/video

Finnish Rioghan is set to release her debut album
'Different Kinds Of Losses' on December 9th 2022 via Inverse Records.
The album has been made in collaboration with Jonas Renkse (Katatonia), Einar Solberg (Leprous),
Teemu Liekkala (ex-Manufacturer's Pride, Red Eleven)
and Teemu Koskela (ex-Celesty).

The fifth single 'Home' has been released.
Responsible for the video-clip was Aarni Visuals.
Rioghan comments:
"While making the song the lyrics felt very simple and obvious from the start, but in every turn it opened up with more deeper layers, and one of those layers we are opening up with the music video. In the video, the storyteller's virtuos image starts to crack as she tries too hard to keep up a clean facade with too many negative things held inside and eventually they spill over."
Started out as a solo-project by singer-poetess Rioghan Darcy,
the progressive metal act Rioghan has grown into a trio
with Teemu Liekkala (guitars, bass, keys, production)
and Valtteri Revonkorpi (drums).
Rooted deeply in both gothic and progressive metal scenes,
they sure should bring something interesting on the table.

The band got some positive international attention with the debut EP 'Blackened Sky',
and the singles from the upcoming 'Different Kinds Of Losses' album
have already got over 250 000 streams.

Line-up on Home single:
Jenni Perämäki - Vocals // Marko hautamäki - Cello
Teemu Liekkala - Guitar, bass, keyboards

Finnish metal band
has released single

Metal band Vanguardian hailing from Jyväskylä Finland releases
their third single "Pantheon"
from their upcoming EP on Friday 11th of November.

Band backgrounds:
"Of all the songs that ended up on this record, 'Pantheon' was the first one that was ready for recording"

Pantheon is also the band's first ballad-like composition
that involved a lot of "studio magic".

Band continues:
"Tino (drummer) recorded the drums with just one take, using just a couple of minutes of our studio time. After trying a couple of hours performing the vocals to the song, our singer (Markus) ended up throwing all the lyrics to the trash. It was a bold move considering that the next day was reserved for recording vocals to this particular song. Therefore Markus ended up writing all the lyrics from scratch the night before vocal recordings started."

In spite of all the dramatic turn of events (or maybe because of them) 'Pantheon' really holds a special importance to all the band members.

Italien AOR project
will release
selftitled debutalbum

Art Of Melody Music & Burning Minds Music Group are excited
to announce all the details of StreetLore,
a brand new melodic rock project (with great special guests)
hailing from Italy.
After spending years playing in some local bands in the north of Italy, keyboardist Lorenzo "Lorerock" Nava approached his long-time friend, Burning Minds Music Group's A&R and producer Pierpaolo "Zorro" Monti (Raintimes, Shining Line, Room Experience, I.F.O.R., Charming Grace),
with the proposal of some unreleased material he’d written
through the years.
Excited by what he heard, Zorro offered his support
in making an all-new melodic rock album.
Art Of Melody Music’s Alessandro Broggi (Airbound) signed on
as co-producer, while directing Lorenzo on keyboards.
With the COVID-19 pandemic affecting the entire world,
works on 'Streetlore' were delayed until late 2021.
The talented guitar-player, keyboardist and songwriter
Andrew Trabelsi (Alchemy) stepped in to replace Alessandro Broggi,
who was unable to proceed due to personal reasons.
To ensure the album would stand among the finest AOR
and melodic rock releases, a solid line-up of established musicians,
and at least one legendary singer needed to be assembled.
Matteo Serra (Room Experience, Charming Grace, Sovversivo),
Angelo Sasso (Airbound) and Luca Ferraresi (ex-Perfect View)
were hired on guitar, bass and drums respectively.
Additionally, co-producer, Andrew Trabelsi handled the guitars parts
for several tracks.
Numerous great vocalists were discussed, alongside some
of the most revered Italian frontmen.
