Hailing from a cold and freezing city in South America, AMBITION is here to reinforce that brazilian underground scene is not only about extreme metal (speed, thrash, death, black, etc)... Yes !!! The nostalgic "denim and leather" spirit of the late 70´s & early 80´s also lives somewhere deep in the land of samba and football !!!
Highly influenced by the classic old vintage sound of Krokus, AC/DC, Nazareth, The Rods, Saxon, Budgie, Picture, Riot, Chariot, Mama´s Boys, Battleaxe, etc... AMBITION is an excellent find/option for all those who are looking for new bands playing some raw, rough and "in your face" hard and heavy rock´n´roll/heavy metal with steady riffs and powerful choruses.
We're super exicted to unleash their debut release which will be a 7" single called "Burning Love" to be out in the next months ! More infos (artwork, song-online, how to pre-order...) coming soon, stay tuned !!! Beware! The ambition is ready to burn !!!
Videos and singlesPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2018-07-19 20:08 Finnish melodic metallers SoulHealer have just unleashed the new single "The Final Judgement", out now in all the the major digital stores.
"The Final Judgement"is the first song taken from their fourth album "Up from the Ashes", out next September 14 via ROCKSHOTS RECORDS. Ten heavy/power metal songs with a 80s' attitude and an outstanding modern sound.
Rising rock band Crown The Empire have released a video for brand new song'20/20'. This is the bands first new music since 2016 album 'Retrograde'.
Talking on the personal and poignant track, singer Andy Leo said "I started to feel like I was living in a world where, even though we're more connected than ever, I felt more alone than ever. It's too easy to point the finger at vanity and self-obsession in technology, all the while being just as much a part of it."
Leo continues, "This is a letter to myself to remind me that I'm still human first. Thanks to everyone for sticking with Crown this far. I hope you enjoy this one."
Crown the Empire initially previewed the track to overwhelming enthusiasm while supporting Asking Alexandria and Black Veil Brides in front of packed houses across the US. The track amplifies the hallmarks of their signature sound — swinging from evocative and emotionally charged verses into sweeping hooks backed by robust riffing and cinematic electronics. The video, with its provocative sci-fi narrative, perfectly captures this like an episode of NETFLIX's Black Mirror gone hard rock.

Videos and singlesPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2018-07-18 20:23 Snow Wave Records has launched a new trailer of the upcoming debut album from Aeolian. This environmental death metal group will release their debut album on September 12. The album will feature cover artwork from the concept artist Kilian Eng, who has worked previously for Disney, Marvel, and the New York Times among others.
It’s a tribute to the diversity and creativity of the metal genre that a band can still come up with a totally new inspiration for their music. Such a band is MONGOL!
Hailing from Edmonton, Alberta, MONGOL’s folk metal is inspired by the ancient Mongolian Empire, which was the largest land empire in history, at various times it included China, Korea, Mongolia, Persia (now Iran), Turkestan, and Armenia. It also included parts of Burma, Vietnam, Thailand, and Russia. This Empire increased contacts between people; and enabled the introduction of such innovations as paper, the compass and gunpowder. It is no exaggeration to say the Mongolian Empire helped shape the modern world.
Now, MONGOL stand poised to unleash their latest album ‘The Return’, inspired by an ancient Mongolian prophecy of the return of Genghis Khan, Lord of All the People Dwelling in Felt Tents, from his grave. In the album, on seeing the sorry state of the world today, Genghis seeks to remake it as the New World Khanate.
Inspired by Kalmah, Wolfchant, Falconer, Dimmu Borgir, lead guitarist Luke Barry (Zev) describes MONGOL’s sound as “melodic, eclectic, diverse, genre-defying, epic!”
As he explains. “We derived the band name, Mongol, from the fierce warriors of the Mongolian Steppe. To draw inspiration we have watched Mongolian films and read their oldest text “The Secret History of the Mongols” and other source material. In addition to this we have traveled to Mongolia and spent some time there, which was a great wellspring of inspiration.”
Live, MONGOL resembles the warriors that inspired them, “bringing a unique energy to the stage that showcases our vast spanning sound perfectly. When the crowd isn’t banging their heads to one of our heavier songs, they are dancing joyously or clinking their beers with brethren in the mosh pit, singing along to catchy melodic choruses!”
“The Return” is due out via Sliptrick Records on October 5th, 2018.
Videos and singlesPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2018-07-18 20:02 The track is taken from their upcoming third albumWe All Know which is setto be released via Holy Roar on July 27th 2018.
Across the nine songs on their new album TALONS expertly weave multiple layers of instruments and beats, showcasing real compositional visceral power, exhibiting their skills in structure and dynamic control. The musical portraits the band paint take us through a variety of sonic landscapes rich in vivid imagery, from bleak to warm and everything in between.
The progressively ambitious sextet, who celebrate their tenth anniversary this year, excel with their third release, carving their own exciting niche in contemporary music. Led by a dual violin instrumentation, TALONS variously touch on world / folk music, with more than occasional allusions to Indian classical music; modern classical; and heavy, expansive post-rock.
Recorded in August 2017 at Greenmount Studios in Leeds, inside an old church, with Lee Smith and Jamie Lockhart at the controls, We All Know was mastered by long-time collaborator Tom Woodhead (¡Forward Russia!). This is the second album TALONS have recorded at Greenmount Studios following 2014’s New Topographics. The recording process was done live as a full band with very few overdubs in order to give the recordings a more intimate and direct feel.
Forming in 2008, TALONS signed with Big Scary Monsters in 2009, releasing their debut single, "The Pearl" on 7” vinyl as well as a split single with And So I Watch You From Afar, featuring the song “Bethlehem”.
The band recorded their debut album, Hollow Realm, releasing in November 2010 (CD - Big Scary Monsters; 12" vinyl - Topshelf Records; special extended CD - Xtal Records, Japan). It received critical acclaim, notably from BBC Music, Drowned In Sound, Rock Sound and The Line of Best Fit. TALONS also recorded a Radio 1 Maida Vale session for Huw Stephens, and toured the record across the UK and mainland Europe.
Four years later, TALONS returned with their second album, New Topographics. A change in mood, more rhythmic and expansive, the album again received high praise in the press, including DIY magazine, Clash and Drowned in Sound. The album was also ranked #2 best album of 2014 by Already Heard website. In promoting the album TALONS made notable appearances at ArcTanGent, Truck Festival, Damnation Festival and Tramlines, as well as support slots with Pianos Become the Teeth and Amenra.
Catch them live:
21/7/2018 – Tramlines – City Hall Ballroom, Sheffield 16/8-18/8/2018 – Arctangent Festival 1/9 - Big Scary Monsters Day Out, London + more to be announced.
