Circus Veil's journey starts back in 2012 at Thessaloniki, Greece, forging their name as a high energy Alternative Metal band. It was not before 2013, when they released their first self-titled Demo and while having the road open ahead, a couple of years later the gang released 4 new Singles and later their first E.P. called “A.R.” came to life via Straight From The Heart Records.
Currently, the band is working on the finishing touches on their Brand-New Release! It’s name? Nu Life, a NEW Life Experience for the listeners. Their stage performance is often being referred as “THE non-stop adrenaline Rock n’ Roll show” by reviewing webzines. Until now the gang has already visited the most parts of Greece, rocking every single city on their way. Moments of great significance would be the times when Circus Veil shared the stage with John Lynn Turner (Deep Purple), Enforcer, Laki Ragazas (Mystic Prophecy, Devil’s Train), Adept, Barb Wire Dolls, Kin Beneath Chorus and many more foreign and local artists. Stay tight! The ultimate experience has just begun...

Videos and singlesPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2017-10-21 20:33 MIDRIFF – three guys from the middle of the Alps are not at all into Dirndl, Lederhosen and Yodeling. The trio, already well known at home in Austria, creates modern Hard Rock songs far away from the classical sex & drugs & rock’n’roll attitude. Singing drummer or drumming singer? That’s something only Phil Collins and his band Genesis had, right? Wrong – and on top of that: in Hard Rock! MIDRIFF understand perfectly how to impressively demonstrate that their somewhat extraordinary line-up does first and foremost one thing: going off like a rocket, especially live! Over the course of the past years, the band performed all over Europe’s club and festival scene and has become a known eye-catcher regarding all things rock. With their second full length album “Doubts & Fears”, released in 2015, MIDRIFF demonstrate once more, that hard stoner riffs and edgy rock songs can also be written in the impressive landscape of the Austrian alps proofing their skills in performing and songwriting. In early 2016 the trio released their first live EP which shows the power and true energy of the band’s live performance. After touring for over five years through mainland Europe supporting bands such as Rival Sons, Pretty Maids, Chris Slade, Tito & Tarantula, Kyuss Lives, Godsized, Armored Saint and many more, the guys grabbed a sponsoring from Jägermeister and other names in the industry. For their third album, Midriff took some time off to concentrate on songwriting and preproduction. Young guys getting old and tired? No – “DECISIONS” is the trio’s heaviest studio output so far, combining modern metal riffs, punchy rock drums, a crunchy low end bass and a soulful as well as powerful voice of frontman Paul. Like the previous albums, “DECISIONS” was recorded in the bands own recording studio and drummer/singer Paul self-produced, engineered and mixed the whole album. “For us as a band it is unreal, that we have so much freedom in our decision making – to record, mix and engineer an album exactly the way we want it, is an absolute privilege in the music industry.”, so the band. After working with different partners Midriff decided to set up their own record label as well. Under the banner of TwoEleven Records the band will release new music and finally found their home as an artist. Midriff’s third studio album “Decisions” will be released on October 20th via TwoEleven Records/Record Jet and Soulfood Music Distribution all over Europe.

Speaking on 'Better With' and new the EP 'All I Said Was Never Heard', Lizzy Farrallsays "The lyrics are about finding someone who completely takes you out of a rut you've been stuck in, but also you have a fear that the feelings you have are not mutual due to similar situations in past relationships which have left you with lack of trust." she continues "for the music video I wanted it to have a very teenage angst vibe which reflects the lyrics. Henry Cox (of Boston Manor) who filmed and produced it came up with the idea to have the storyline in reverse which gives the video a really cool twist".

News/nyheterPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2017-10-15 13:37 The French melodic prog power metal band ETERNAL FLIGHT will release its new album "Retrofuture" on November 17, 2017 via Massacre Records!
The band has now released the official video for the single "Poison", directed by Joël Baud Vocalist Gérard Fois about the song and the video:
"Poison" is a song we already tested in 2013 during the Euro tour with Circle II Circle and Nightmare, and at the time I remember very well the people in the crowd singing the chorus by the end of the song without having listened to it before! I knew it was a potential single from then and like a poison, the chorus spreads in your head instantly! This video is quite direct, in your face, no thrills and presents the band as it is on stage! The music speaks for itself.
"Retrofuture" was mixed and mastered by Gérard Fois at Morphoenix Studio, who also created the cover artwork along with Mirowshka.
Vocals with a great range, stellar musicianship, catchy yet interesting songs with a great sound are the main ingredients that make "Retrofuture" ETERNAL FLIGHT's most mature album to date! It's a hour-long album with no fillers that should cause quite a stir within fans of the genre!
