german metalcore band
have released their new album

The album »Overdrive«, already announced for March 18, is eagerly awaited and after successful five single releases in the run-up, the next long-player of the Essen band should convince even the last metal critic.

Following their last release »Soulmade«, their new style relies more on big, heavy riffs and driving, powerful drums.
Nico Schiesewitz's relentless, bone-sawing shouts make you cringe until the stadium chorus hits you right in the pit of your stomach.
BREATHE ATLANTIS have matured like good wine:
catchy songs that encourage sing-alongs, brutal mosh parts, and refreshingly honest lyrics that don't sugarcoat anything are the product of a 2-year writing and studio phase, with the result that »Overdrive« will be a milestone for BREATHE ATLANTIS.

BREATHE ATLANTIS have gained a lot of experience over the past few years; having played countless shows with big international bands like SUM 41, MEMPHIS MAY FIRE, ATTILA, BURY TOMORROW,
CROSSFAITH or SLAVES, plus excessive touring throughout the
EU supporting ANY GIVEN DAY, TO THE RATS AND WOLVES, IMMINENCE, and slots on top German festivals.
»Overdrive« is now available for digital and physical pre-order. due for release on March 18th. For Fans of I PREVAIL, BRING ME THE HORIZON and ARCHITECTS.

The band’s music is a mix of everything:

from Thessaloniki, Greece have released their new album entitled
'Void Moments Of Inertia'

Once Upon A Winter - Post Rock band from Thessaloniki, GR - announced the release of their 4th album Void Moments of Inertia.
«Loneliness is the suffering of our time.

Even if we're surrounded by others, we can feel very alone»

Once Upon A Winter with Void Moments of Inertia, have managed to balance heavy and melodic sounds, giving space to the senses and leading us from the absolute calmness to the absolute intensity.
An album with pure Post-Rock aesthetics, that displays in every way the gloriousness and the beauty of the genre.
Emotion and melody that make the listener see the world through a different light and get lost in its magic.

Loud guitars, high tempo drums and heavy bass
on one hand – unexpected, heart-warming and beautifully performed saxophone solos, sweet violins and enchanting piano compositions on the other, all harmonized as one.
Blackgaze that manages to elevate the songs to dreamy and peaceful, give them a romantic aspect - in a silent way - and right after, to crush them in whirlpools of intensity and dynamism.
'Void Moments of Inertia' is an album full of contrasts.

rock and metal bands
appeal to the World

As you know, Ukraine is now suffering from Russian aggression.
The invaders did not just come to take our land.
They want to destroy us as a nation, to destroy our identity, our race.

The old sick devil with gigantic ambitions, gives orders to destroy everything in his path.

Russian Nazis are killing civilians, bombing schools, maternity hospitals and clinics.
They are holding thousands of people hostage, they are not even giving us the opportunity to provide the population with medicine, water and food.

We - Ukrainian rock and metal musicians - appeal to you, your listeners:
listen to us, help us, stop the war.
These are real voices of real people.
The war is not far away.
The war is here.
Right now many of us are forced to leave our families, jobs, homes and protect ourselves and our families.
Many musicians dropped their instruments and picked up machine guns.
Many musicians are forced to leave their homes and save their children and loved ones.
Many musicians became volunteers.

We offer you the appeal of Ukrainian musicians.
We would be grateful if you could help bring our voices to the world.

We understand that many will feel uncomfortable, painful and bitter, but this is the reality in which anyone can end up being.
Hear us, please!
Save the world.
the ukrainian rock and metal musicians

ALLEN'S HAND (GR) continue
their journey,
with the release of an exciting
new track

'Some say all you need is a cult-like boyband of chickens.

Some say all you need is love.

Wisdom is abundant in both.'
Establishing their status as THE quintessential cult chicken boy-band of 2022, Allen's Hand is back with their exciting new single Figurine.
Built off of Eggstein's dark distorted Deftone-esque riff, the track flows into chorus harmonies that today's Alice In Chains would be jealous of, which in turn gives way to a sinister guitar solo.

'Figurine' explores the subconscious attraction to pain as a source of meaning, and addiction as a coping mechanism.
Leaving the narrator to realize, in their translucid state,
"you don't want what you think you want".
Allen's Hand integrates us mockingly and slowly into their society.
Recommendations were made with the track 'Rise Of The Chicken King', followed by their anthem 'Re-Pack Your Bags'.
'Figurine' on the other hand is here to sink us deeper into the abyss.
When addiction rears its ugly head, be uglier.

Life hits you hard but not as hard as their riffs.
'𝘉𝘦𝘭𝘪𝘦𝘷𝘦 𝘮𝘦 𝘨𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘴 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘨, 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘨𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘴𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘴, 𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦 𝘴𝘢𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘣𝘦𝘴𝘵 𝘴𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘭𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘺𝘦𝘢𝘳, 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵'𝘴 𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦 𝘱𝘦𝘰𝘱𝘭𝘦 𝘴𝘢𝘺, 𝘵𝘰𝘮𝘰𝘳𝘳𝘰𝘸 𝘪𝘵'𝘴 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘢𝘵 𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦, 𝘰𝘳 𝘢𝘯𝘰𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦, 𝘣𝘶𝘵 𝘥𝘦𝘧𝘪𝘯𝘪𝘵𝘦𝘭𝘺 𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦 𝘵𝘰𝘮𝘰𝘳𝘳𝘰𝘸'

finnish hard rock band
have released their debut EP
“Spring of Turmoil”
part ii

G.F.W., Guilty, Frozen & Wrecked,
is the band’s first song they’ve worked on together.
Maybe that’s why it was a natural choice as the first single and music video as well.
The person in the story has drifted into the eye of the storm in his life and is waiting for his savior.

a reference to a new beginning or an exploding star?
This beautiful rock ballad grows into massive spheres towards the end, and listeners have told us that Nova has some radio hit potential.
But has it?
You decide!

After the ballad, Hummingbird Heart
offers some kick ass rock ‘n’ roll.
Alcohol and hangover are familiar to many people,
which is why rock bands have been writing songs about these topics for decades.
Ian Voltage has not come to reinvent the wheel, but to keep the damn thing moving.
This straightforward rock track will make its listener's pulse rise.

concludes the release with a melancholy vibe.
Mental health is something that concerns all of us, and it is the source of music writing inspiration for Ian Voltage too.
Do the Bongo drums and Backstreet Boys choruses balance the melancholy vibes of the song?
Take a listen and find out.

Finnish melodic metal band
released a first single from their upcoming new album

Finnish melodic metal band Dark The Suns is set to release their yet unnamed fifth studio album later in 2022 via Inverse Records.
The first single 'Kun Aallot Kallioihin Murtuu' is released.
Mikko Ojala commets:
"Kun Aallot Kallioihin Murtuu is the first single from our 5th album. The song speaks about sorrow and grief and how some day you will have to forget and move on with your life."
In 2005 Dark the Suns was founded by Mikko Ojala.
In 2006 the band grew when three new members (bass player Inka, Juha on the keyboards and drummer Markus) joined the band, which signed with Firebox Records that same year.

During 2007-2010 Firebox Records released the band's three full-length albums ('In Darkness Comes Beauty', 'All Ends in Silence'
and 'Sleepwalking in a Nightmare').
The band performed many live shows during these years.

There have been some changes in the line-up over the years,
but Mikko and Inka have been continuously together, making music.
The band was inactive for 2013-2020,
but in 2020 Mikko and Inka decided to resume making music together.
It was a really natural way to continue the band as a duo, because they have written almost all the band's music and lyrics during all these years.
In 2020 and 2021 Inverse Records released four singles
from the band's 4th album Suru Raivosi Sydämeni Pimeydessä.
The album includes ten songs
of melancholic and melodic Finnish metal music.
The band has always described their music as
"Beautiful piano melodies and dark vocals".
Fifth studio album is set to be released later in 2022 via Inverse Records.
