New Post-Metal music project “Sidus” releases “Stellar Sky”

Sidus is a Berlin based post-rock instrumental one-man band formed by bass player Spiros Olivotos. After a period of experimentation and pre-production, Sidus hit the studio (P.K. Productions) to record his first E.P. with the title “Seasons Reversed”. An instrumental, cinematic, post-rock, metal collection of five compositions, creates an intense though melodic and nostalgic atmosphere. Influenced by God is an Astronaut and Explosions In the Sky but also Deftones and Hans Zimmer, this E.P. combines dynamic guitars with soundtrack vibes and memorable melodies, while it is planned to be released during the end of this summer. The artwork of the EP was created by Makis Olivotos. In the self-titled track Kostas Milonas (Sunburst, Foray Between Ocean, New Day Slave) is featured on drums.

The fourth single with title “Stellar Sky” was inspired by a classic quote of Carl Sagan about the stellar origin of human species: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7ryOHGpSTk

“We are made of stellar ash. Our origin and evolution have been tied to distant cosmic events. The exploration of the cosmos is a voyage of self-discovery.”

SARS premieres their new single “In Blood and Burn”

SARS is a 6-piece metal group from Turku, Finland that combines a fresh mixture of hardcore, death metal and other genres.

SARS took its first breaths during the summer of 2016 by Sami Leinonen and Timo Heikkilä but things took off when they introduced the idea of SARS to Juuso Linsamo in 2019.

After roughly a year of brewing ideas the band started to shape its form and was ready to find a vocalist. Thanks to the modern world and its benefits SARS crossed paths with Antti Honkanen, a hidden gem located in Oulu, northern Finland. One trip from Oulu to Turku was enough to determine that SARS had finally found their voice and was ready to hit the studio in the summer of 2020.

The guys contacted Keijo Niinimaa, a familiar face and a household name in the finnish metal
scene, to produce and engineer their first songs. During the sessions Keijos contributions for the sound of SARS became so obvious that he was asked to join the band as a second voice. After these sessions SARS teamed up with Vilho Laaksonen who joined the band as a bass player.

Now that SARS has shaped its form it is time to spread the sickness and release the music video for the first single titled ’In Blood and Burn’.

Stay tuned, in 2021 SARS is ready to hit the stages and release even more new music.

Antti Honkanen – Vocals
Keijo Niinimaa – Vocals
Sami Leinonen – Guitar
Juuso Linsamo – Guitar
Vilho Laaksonen – Bass

Productions) to record his first E.P. with the title “Seasons Reversed”. An instrumental, cinematic, post-rock, metal collection of five compositions, creates an intense though melodic and nostalgic atmosphere.

The artwork of the EP was created by Makis Olivotos. In the self-titled track Kostas Milonas (Sunburst, Foray Between Ocean, New Day Slave) is featured on drums.

The latest release and final song of the single series from the debut EP is dealing with climate change. It describes a fictional world where the seasons are reversed and great natural catastrophic events dominate the Earth. The rapid development of western civilization turned our home planet against us. The crucial question is: How far away from this fantasy world are we?

“One can see from space how the human race has changed the Earth. Nearly all of the available land has been cleared of forest and is now used for agriculture or urban development. The polar icecaps are shrinking and the desert areas are increasing. At night, the Earth is no longer dark, but large areas are lit up. All of this is evidence that human exploitation of the planet is reaching a critical limit. But human demands and expectations are ever-increasing. We cannot continue to pollute the atmosphere, poison the ocean and exhaust the land. There isn’t any more available.” -Stephen Hawking

AEONBLACK: new album on Black Sunset!

German heavy/power metallers Aeonblack have signed with Black Sunset to release the follow-up to their 2015 debut “Metal Bound” before spring of 2021! However, if you think of “traditional heavy metal” as stale fare, then you’d better get warmed up! According to the first samples of the new album, you can expect a huge wall of sound with aggressive riffing, guitar duels and classic melodic vocals, which are performed as if the quartet had sprung from a fountain of youth.

Get ready for a true heavy metal highlight! More info coming soon!

SIGNUM REGIS are releasing a new EP called “Flag Of Hope”, together with a video for the title song

For this song, we invited our good friends, singers, who are all somehow connected to SIGNUM REGISGöran Edman was the lead singer of the band in the early days and recorded with us the 1st and the 2nd album. Mayo Petranin (Castaway, Symphonity) was our lead singer in 2014-2018, Matt Smith (Theocracy) and Samuel Nyman (Manimal) were our special guests on the Exodus album (2013), David Åkesson has been working with us externally since our 2019 release “The Seal Of A New World”. Of course, our current lead singer, Jota Fortinho, is there too!

We are very happy that this little reunion took place and that we were able to make together some music again. It brought back a lot of good memories. On top of that all, we have André Hernandes  (Andre Matos band) playing tasty additional lead guitar.

It’s quite clear already, that the year 2020 has not been a great one, we all know that. That’s why we believe a song about hope and not giving up is exactly what we all need to hear.

Bloodkill: India’s thrash/heavy metallers publish lyric video for “For I Am The Messiah”

India’s thrash/heavy metallers Bloodkill are scheduled to release “Throne of Control” on January 19th, 2021, an album that in their own words «has an underlying story of how things are bitterly different from what it looks on the surface». Bloodkill have published a lyric video for the track “For I Am The Messiah”, a ferocious assault to a rotten world waiting to be saved.

The band comments: «’For I am the Messiah’ talks about the narcissists proclaiming to be the godmen and saviours who manipulate the vulnerable masses under the guise of the greater good. Times change and so do messiahs, but what remains unchanged is the ‘Throne Of Control’.»

In the 3rd Act of the Mr Strangler trilogy published in 2020, the serial killer lost his life, condemned to death. Shortly before his execution, Mr. Strangler became a messiah for an enigmatic community called The Stranglings and led by The Guide. Traveling from city to city, the community continues to grow, joined by a growing number of people fleeing the modern world in search of a better life and meaning in their existence.
Their name, The Stranglings, comes from a tribute to Mr. Strangler, who became a symbol of freedom, and their feeling of being strangled by society.
A new trilogy begins : The Stranglings Trilogy !

For this new opus, PORN teamed up with Chris Vrenna. The American musician and producer distinguished himself as the legendary drummer of Nine inch Nails then Marilyn Manson and worked with the greatest (U2, David Bowie, Smashing Pumpkins, Metallica, Rammstein …).
The finalization of the album was done with Brian Lucey (Depeche Mode, Arctic Monkeys, Ghost…) who took care of the mastering.
Philippe Deschemin, composer and singer of the band, oversaw the production of the album.
