COUNTERPARTS DEBUT VIDEO FOR “YOU’RE NOT YOU ANYMORE”Videos and singles

Posted by Hallowed nyheter 2018-02-17 12:56

Canadian metal/hardcore band Counterparts just kicked off a North American tour with Architects and Stick To Your Guns, and in celebration of the excursion, the band has revealed a new video for their new record’s title track, “You’re Not You Anymore”.

“The “YNYA” video is a fairly drastic change for us. We are the "who gives a shit" band when it comes to most things other than writing music, so to be able to dabble in such an artistic and professional realm is very cool. The director, Josh Halling, killed it and it feels like we made a mini movie as opposed to a music video. It's a nice break from our usual performance heavy video style and I hope you all enjoy it” - Brendan Murphy (vocals).

You’re Not You Anymore, is available now from Pure Noise Records.

Marco Mendoza releases new single "Sweetest Emotions"Videos and singles

Posted by Hallowed nyheter 2018-02-17 12:49

Today we can present the newest single "Sweetest Emotions" from the upcoming new album "Viva La Rock" by Marco Mendoza.

Boy Meets Girl!! and their story begins ......

The song is a straight forward party rocker, with good vibes and happy times!
The Los Angeles native who has a proud Spanish/Mexican heritage is usually found holding down the bass rock foundation with artists like Neal Schon (Journey), Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy, Ted Nugent and can currently be found with new classic rock champions The Dead Daisies.

With a hard working ethic that sees him constantly out on the road either with The Dead Daisies or as a solo artist, he was delighted when Mighty Music offered him the opportunity to release an album that could propel his own brand of music to a wider public.

The album was recorded in Copenhagen with the multi-talented Soren Andersen (Glenn Hughes/Mike Tramp/Electric Guitars) at the helm. The Soren/Marco collaboration proved to be the right way forward with the chemistry exploding in the studio, writing and producing some of the finest new rock songs that are screaming out to be heard through a radio somewhere in the world.

“VIVA LA ROCK!! Is a celebration of Music, Life & Rock & Roll, Peace and Love!” states Marco.

The album "Viva La Rock" will be released on the 2nd of March worldwide through Mighty Music on LP, CD and digital (ex. Japan by Ward).

THORNHILL RELEASE "REPTILE" VIDEOVideos and singles

Posted by Hallowed nyheter 2018-02-17 12:44

It's a big day for Melbourne's Thornhill. Today the five-piece drop their hotly anticipated EP Butterfly and, in celebration of the release, the boys have unveiled the video for their latest single "Reptile" and announced their very first headline show!

After landing a dream run of support slots with Architects, Parkway Drive, Northlane and In Hearts Wake, Thornhill will expand their wings at the official Butterfly release show - which also happens to be their headliner debut - at Cherry Bar in Melbourne on Saturday April 7. Joining Thornhill to celebrate the EP will be Sleep Talk, Mirrors and Incentives.

Also released today is the video for their latest single "Reptile". The concept for "Reptile" was written by frontman Jacob Charlton and is inspired by his fascination for horror and what makes people scared.
About the video, Charton says, "I wrote this song based on my idea for the video, in my own mind, the lyrics were written after the video plot was created. I’ve always had a heavy hand in making movies when I was younger and an interest in acting, from school projects and plays, to family made flicks with my siblings, so it was a dream come true to be able to come up with an idea, act, incorporate my best mates and see it grow into a short film."

Much like the life of a butterfly, Thornhill have experienced a complete metamorphosis in their short time together. Thornhill’s second EP sees the Melbourne five-piece emerge from the chrysalis with six new songs that mark the next phase of their alternative metalcore evolution.

Butterfly is an immense yet intricate soundtrack that takes an introspective look at the experiences of a 20-year-old. With inspirational touchstones of Karnivool, Radiohead and Jeff Buckley, the songs on Butterfly intelligently weave through layers of complexity that challenge genre boundaries and put sharp focus on their musicianship, in which Hysteria Mag mused "how the median age is only 20 and resulted in an effort like this is bewildering".

After the band – comprising of Jacob Charlton (vocals), Ethan McCann (guitar), Ben Maida (drums), Nick Sjogren (bass) and Matt Van Duppen (guitar) – graduated from high school, Thornhill played their first show with Hellions. As a collective, they were only three months old at the time, but they grew rapidly from there, finding themselves on triple j rotation and scoring Unearthed Feature Artist in November 2017.

Negative Self release new single "Answers" from their upcoming album "Control The Wave"Videos and singles

Posted by Hallowed nyheter 2018-02-16 21:55

Get ready for the latest highlight from Germany´s leading Hardcore label BDHW Rec.!

NEGATIVE SELF, the crossover group hailing from Stockholm, Sweden, made a big impact with the 2015 self-titled debut.
The album quickly generated buzz and gave the band a loyal fan base.
With little media support the word spread online, much thanks to enthusiastic support from well-known bands such as Beowulf, Iron Reagan and The Black Dahlia Murder.
They started as a hobby project when singer Andreas Sandberg (founding member and former singer of Dr Living Dead!) started writing songs with guitar player and long-time friend Tor Nyman.
They recorded an album with help from Frank Guldstrand who later became the band's bass player and added a second guitarist, Viktor Svensson.
With the adding of Jakob Strand (drums) the band had the final component to make another album packed with melodic and emotional crossover thrash.

"Control The Fear" shows a slightly heavier and more focused band, hungry to once again make an impact on both the metal and the hardcore community.
