One Of 2016's Most Celebrated Records Finally Comes To Vinyl - This Is Snowchild's "Age Of Change"



Wichita fuzzers, Snowchild, have managed to birth an album that comes on like a churning maelstrom of sound, and continues to punch listeners in the face with a heavy sound that mimics the stoner rock of yore, but is also undeniably their own. This album was made for vinyl, and may be one of the more celebrated releases of this year.

"Kansas trio Snowchild throw stoner, psych, blues and hard rock into a big melting pot, chuck in a big dollop of groove and serve it molten hot! Amazing blend of doom styles , yet always maintaining a Sabbath vibe throughout. I also am reminded of Pallbearer at times. This reminds me of the first few Sahg records, but with a tiny bit more doom and quite a bit more blues elements. Like Sahg meets Cream. There is an awesome organ part in track 2, even though Snowchild seems to be and sounds like a power trio. Superb stuff." - Stoned Meadow of Doom

"Thick as mud, yet as crystal clear as a super moon on a cloudless night, Snowchild releases Age of Change in a haze of fuzzed out psychedelic doom rock." - wearewichita.com

Larry Donaldson - Vocals & Bass
Dustin Roberts - Guitar
Chad Duncan - Drums

Are You Ready For "2600 A.D. And Other Astonishing Tales" By Mississippi Bones? Buckle In....



Mississippi Bones formed in the flat lands of Hardin County, Ohio in 2010 as a two man studio project, thanks to some free studio time, with no other motive than to lay down some rock and no intentions of a future. In the last 7 years the rock has not stopped. They have moved from a two to a six man (5 men 1 lady) band, but the goal remains the same … laying down fat slabs o'rock.

Some say you hear Clutch influences in their music, maybe, but listen to their albums and you'll be blown away by how much more you're about to discover. Soul, blues and southern rock have never been combined with heavy riffing and catchy melodies like this.

"12 more songs that rattle and crash with incredible energy, enthusiasm, and elegance. When I listen through this album I hear elements of Clutch, which makes this music quite exciting to me, but that is only the starting point for what they've created here. … just sheer raucous rock n roll pleasure, a fierceness of execution, and a keen sense of joy." - HeavyPlanet.net

"Big rock riffs, great lyrics, crazy song titles, brilliant cover art and it just begs to ask one big question - how are this Band not one of the biggest on the planet? The album as a whole is a little bit darker and heavier than the one before but is still always easy on the ear and continues to reward repeated listening. So there we have it - a combination of maximum riffing, educated lyrics and catchy songs - what's not to like?" - 10/10 @ maximumvolumemusic.com

Introducing.... American Space Monkey




American Space Monkey is an aggressive band from Vancouver BC Canada, whose combined Punk and Metal influences blend together into a unique version of Noise Rock. Needless to say feedback is a favourite note in between groove driven stoner hardcore. Very noisy, often fast paced, but will change direction without any warning.

Forged from the ruins of the member’s old bands, American Space Monkey came to be during the summer of 2014.

“We have a history of imploding in on ourselves, quitting, and eventually starting up again.”

If you trace the steps back far enough, Cody Derkach and Kyle Kary started the band in a dingy basement in Cranbrook BC. Then called Fiesta Finger, the members started creating music solely for their own amusement. A few months in, shows started happening, and the idea of being in a band started to feel much more real. The shows gradually grew in size and success, which lead to an initial EP, and Canadian tour. It was at this point that the first implosion occurred.

The band removed the sole songwriter, recruited Justin Stadig, a new guitarist, scrapped their entire catalogue of music, and essentially started over, all the while still being called Fiesta Finger. Again, the shows grew, opening for major touring bands like Protest The Hero, 3 Inches of Blood, The Brat Attack and The Class War Kids, along with a second Canadian Tour. This all lead to the recording of the band's first full length album, which ultimately brought the band to its demise. Unhappy with the album, and each other, everyone quit.

Fast forward 1 year, Cody, Kyle and Justin had each coincidently moved to Vancouver. Having remarkably short memories, they decided to scrap every single song ever written or recorded, and start anew, as Idiot Switch, The Morgan Abduction. Shows started up again, recording of a new full length album went underway, until the band again, parted ways, and stopped talking to each other.

After some more down time, the idea of reforming emerged once again. Getting back together once more, adding Adam Redding as the bassist and again nixing every single song from every previous versions of the band, they started back up as American Space Monkey.

With a live presence that could be described as chaotic, menacing and awkward the band has toured Canada multiple times over the past 10 years and were lucky enough to open for Canadian bands such as Protest the Hero, Three Inches of Blood and Means (Northcote).

American Space Monkey is looking to tour Canada once more in the summer of 2018.

5. Mk:III by American Space Monkey



In the most typical fashion possible for them, they decided to spend a year writing (mostly) new songs with a new vocalist for the sake of recording a "proper" album in a legit studio. After achieving all of this, they decided they didn't want to play these songs anymore, and to some extent ended this version of the band.

They weren't sure what was next, but regardless of everything, they're proud of these songs and had a blast writing and recording them.

But in typical fashion, they now have a 6 song EP coming out 31 December 2017 called Crash Landing.




Crash Landing was recorded, mixed, engineered and produced by Kyle Anderson at Blue Light Studio in Vancouver BC Canada. The album was mastered by Greg Mindorff (Grammy Nominated) at Suite Sound Labs.

Adam Redding - Bass/Tequila Shots
Cody Derkach - Right Handed Guitar/Vocals

01 - Fuck
02 - You
03 - All
04 - ! (Doo Dat Dat Do Dat Do Dat)
05 - We
06 - Quit

This is one quite good EP folks, a short and sweet noise rock delight, and apparently the final album, which you can pre-order for $1 CAD or more from HERE!!


The minimum price is set to $1+, as that is the minimum allowed price for pre-orders on Bandcamp. We'll reset this to $0 on release day as we want everyone to have access to the album, regardless of money. That said, recording music costs us money, so we greatly appreciate any cash sent our way, but again we want anyone and everyone to be able to download the album, regardless of their financial situation.

Cheers
American Space Monkey

A Welcome Return From Dark Embrace With Awesome New Album 'The Call Of The Wolves'



Dark Embrace is a Spanish band influenced by the dark subgenres of Heavy Metal.

The band was born in Galicia, northwest area of Spain, which may explain their creative obsession with everything dark-related. Originally founded in June 2000, the band produced three demo works from 2000 to 2004. These works showed the spirit and potential of the band, getting good reviews from the Metal press.

In 2005 the band recorded their first album at Stage One Studio (Tankard, Rotting Christ, etc..) with Andy Classen (ex-Holy Moses). After inking a deal with German label Armageddon Music (later Wacken Records), Dark Embrace saw their first official album, The Rebirth Of Darkness, launched through the Internet with digital distribution. From 2006 to 2008, the band increased their success with a good amount of shows and tours with different famed bands such as Sepultura, Amon Amarth, Destruction, Watain, etc...

After an hiatus of 6 years, the band started to work on their new album, The Call Of The Wolves, with the mighty Snowy Shaw behind the drum-kit (ex-member from bands such as King Diamond, Sabaton, Therion, Dimmu Borgir). The recording sessions took place through Sweden and Spain at Sound Industry Studios and Estudios Mafia. The mastering of the album was done by well-known Swedish producer Jens Bogren (Kreator, Opeth, Paradise Lost, Moonspell, Amorphis, Dark Tranquillity amongst others) at Fascination Street Studios.

The Call Of The Wolves was released on 10 November 2017 by 7 Hard Records with awesome artwork created by Gustavo Sazes who already has done work for Arch Enemy, Morbid Angel, Kamelot.

Dark Embrace and the new album, The Call Of The Wolves, are bringing power and freshness to the metal music scene.

This is one awesome metal album and should be an essential part of any headbanger's collection, so do yourselves a huge favour and purchase this great slab of metal from any of the online retailers listed below.

Driven By Impact Have Released Great Self-Titled Debut EP



In the band's own words in Googlish:

Finally it is done! In 14 long months, characterized by various adversities and circumstances, the recordings of our debut EP were produced, mixed and mastered by Eugene Getman (SARIOLA). Because the tracks transport very well our concept of claim and sound. It’s a fucking DRIVEN BY IMPACT, well written monoliths of brutal and twisted death. So the ultra-heavy, simplistic sound and every riff is blazing fast or full of deadly groove incredibly addictive, so much so you’ll surely run through your heads... Full with punch-through force, technically sophisticated and with a good mixture of brutality, blastbeats, groove and melody. Thought structures as well as a powerful atmosphere crown this EP. The texts deal with serious topics such as suicide and depression (AN EXPERIENCE IN RED, Burning Bridges). Processing and farewell to life sections (Building Fear, Monstrosity of Life). But also the subject of something natural does not come too short, just listen to Place of Gore or Arise from Ashes ... We are happy about the completion, publication and the chance to write another chapter band history. And, of course, we hope to win new audiences and fans. This is followed by promotion and live planning. We look forward to every opportunity to present our music and to let the listener participate in our fun, which we have live and during the rehearsals. The band was founded in the spring of 2015 and since the autumn of this year the line-up has been composed by Roman Rowinski (drums) Eugen Rutz (vocals // Ex-MENTAL WAR / DEMISE EMPIRE), Kim van Geel (guitar // Ex-BITTER PIECE) , Jens Schäfer (Guitar // Ex-LOST CENTURY / THOUGHT SPHERE / MOMENT OF DETONATION) and Constantin Christ (bass). We are passionate about how to make a hard time. Modern and classic elements are combined to create a seething mix of Groove and (Melodic) Death elements. In December 2015, we passed our live baptism. There followed further gigs with partly insane and really great reactions. Altogether, we've played a few gigs so far, and more are confirmed and planned. With the EP in the back we want to use the new energy and drive our commitment. We're excited about what's going on ... DEATH IS THE ONLY CURE - sourced

Sam Marine Releases Great New EP 'Big Dark City'

Rock And Roll With Just The Right Amount Of Country And Folk

From New York City by the way of Gainesville, Florida, and now fairly new to Los Angeles, Sam Marine has already made himself an integral part of the LA roots-rock music scene. Playing alongside up and comers Rod Melancon, Jaime Wyatt and Sam Morrow, it makes sense that he tapped former Dwight Yoakam sideman and producer of Melancon’s Southern Gothic, Brian Whelan, to produce his new EP, Big Dark City. 

Big Dark City is Marine’s 3rd CD.  His first two, Lacktown and New Home were both mixed by heavyweight producer John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Kurt Vile, Drive By Truckers) and mastered by Greg Calbi (Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty).  His raspy, urgent vocals often earn him favorable comparisons to Springsteen, Tom Petty and Paul Westerberg.  A Thousand Guitars music blog has described his songwriting imagery as “…recalling a dust-choked, windblown existence that somehow still manages to look up from the gutter.”

With Big Dark City, Whelan and Marine took a few weeks carefully arranging the music on acoustic guitars and singing without microphones as they sat on Whelan’s front porch.  “Everything was worked out and arranged front-to-back,” said Marine.  “It was as bare bones as it could be before we took it into the studio to record.” 

With Marine on lead vocals, and guitar, Whelan not only produced, but added his own guitar and played organ.  He also brought in Dwight Yoakam drummer, Mitch Marine and completed the rhythm section with Aaron Stern on bass.  The result is a tight collection of catchy guitar-driven Americana songs with an edge that some would deem ‘Heartland Rock’. “Two guitars, bass, drums and organ,” Marine speculates. “Just about as meat and potatoes as it gets.”

The title track is a song about a man who was once a hell raiser and after trying ‘domestication’ finds out it’s not for him so he rebels.  “Parts of the song are specifically about my own experiences while living in Brooklyn,” Marine said.  “Musically I wanted there to be a vulnerability felt, an unstable ground of loud and quiet taking turns moving back and forth. I also knew I wanted it to be a rocker, to show the regression of this man.”

“Dawn Come and Gone” is a boogie that is the Saturday morning prior to “Big Dark City’s” Sunday night. “I’m a bartender and a musician,” he said. “Sometimes when you have a late-night lifestyle, the sunrise can sneak up on you before you realize what time it is.”  “Freeze ‘Em Out uses Marine’s very personal lyrics set to a surf track which he arranged with friend and former band mate, Aaron Goodrich.

“I’ll Soon Be Gone” was a song that was recorded on his first record Lacktown, but was made new again by Mitch Marine adding a different drumbeat. “He really changed the song for the better,” he noted.  “Having heard the song played a certain way for a number of years, it was a little jarring for me to sing where the new beat was, but once I wrapped my head around it, it was obvious that the song should be recorded this way.”

Marine wrote the song “Mike Lee” as a tribute to a friend who had passed away.  “He died of an overdose, but it’s not about that. This song is about what a good guy he was and how he always had your back, “ Marine points out.  He gives lyrics as an example, “If you get along with him, you’ll get along with me, and if you got time for one, we got time for three…now to the other side of town, with the solitude you found, and all the way back again, Mike Lee.”

Marine’s brother, Chris Marine is also a musician who plays drums with the band Phosphorescent. The two brothers were in a band together in Florida (Apollo Quartet) before Marine decided to try his luck in New York. He credits their choice of music careers to their parents. “My parents and all of their friends were very young and always had the television turned to MTV or VH1,” he remembers.  “They always had loud music playing, they always danced, they always seemed to be rockin’ and having a good time. I saw what music did to people and had a feeling that if I played music I could make them behave that way too.”

Big Dark City  is simple, classic, personal and honest.  It’s sure to establish Sam Marine’s footing in the roots-rock genre while finding it's own place in any listener's heart.

“Quantity is sometimes not necessary to convince you of someone's qualities. A good example of this could be "Big Dark City" by Sam Marine. Only five songs on the disc, but we still recognized the talent... As far as we're concerned, a very welcome introduction to a roots rocker of which we undoubtedly will hear a lot more” - Ctrl.alt.country

"Big Dark City" is already the third ep of Sam Marine after "Lacktown" and "New Home", and maybe it's time to work on a full-length CD for this rocking rock star.” — Rootstime Belgium
