Electronic/Industrial Bass Artist SINthetik Messiah Announces The Release of Their Single “Black Sheep”

(Features Hart Fortenbery of SyFy’s “Deep South Paranormal”)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

July 11, 2019
 – Cajun electronic/industrial bass artist SINthetik Messiah very proudly announces the release of their new single, “Black Sheep.” 

“Black Sheep” features the voice of Hart Fortenbery from the hit SyFy Channel show, “Deep South Paranormal.”  Mixing and Mastering was done by Joe Haze (Lords of Acid) and artwork  was done by Rob Walden Design.

For fans of : The Prodigy, Nine Inch Nails & Rabbit Junk.

The concept behind the music:

“Black Sheep” is a term to describe a family member that just doesn’t belong, the one that took a “different path.”

Hart Fortenbery of SyFy Channel’s show “Deep South Paranormal”and Bug Gigabyte have been friends for many years. They are even known to have both of their bands do back-to-back sets together at many benefit shows in the south. A while back while drinking large amounts of whiskey at Hart’s humble abode, the Swamp Pop Palace, Hart and Bug started discussing the idea of doing a track together.

The beginning of “Black Sheep” has  a snippet of that very conversation. Musically, with “Black Sheep” Bug Gigabyte was trying to describe Hart Fortenbery’s life; minimal yet complex in a way only a shaman can understand.

Bug also wanted to make the structure, sound design as well as the meaning of the track an indirect tribute to THE PRODIGY for their recent loss of Keith Flint. THE PRODIGY has been a major influence to Bug Gigabyte ever since the beginning of his musical career.    

Bug Gigabyte

YOUNG OTHER Releases Official Music Video for “Between The Few”

Single Art Young Other BetweenTheFew

Hard Alternative Rock Band YOUNG OTHER has released the official music video for the title track off of their upcoming, debut EP, Between The Few.

Player

“When we wrote ‘Between The Few,’ the four of us were enduring the hardest chapter of our lives. Being without anyone to turn to, we turned to what our hearts call to. ‘Between The Few’ resembles the fight between things that are good and bad, the light and dark, happiness and depression, it is the title track and centerfold off our upcoming EP. For us, the song highlights how torn we are pursuing a career in music when weʼre consistently being delivered societal expectations from the ones we love by not following the “correct” ways and living the “normal life”. Regardless of what we have been handed, our hearts and passion for music cannot be silenced, it is our voice and who we are.” – YOUNG OTHER

Album Promo 2 Jaymes

Surrounded by darkness, fabricated by societal expectations and the desire for their dreams leaving them torn between life choices, the members of Young Other have strayed from the path of the “normal life” to follow the light that is fueled by their passion towards the end of a seemingly endless tunnel. This journey is expressed in the bandʼs debut release, “Between The Few”. The EP reflects the concepts of good and bad, light and dark, happiness and depression. The lyrics portray instances derived directly from personal experiences of each member, providing a general concept with diverse emotional standpoints. Explosive drums, fused with groove and melody delivered from the guitar and bass, sit underneath a tasteful, yet dominating vocal, creating a sound which narrates the story behind Young Other.

Young Other was originally formed by members Dale Belliveau Jr. (Vocals) and Brandon Hursey (Guitar). Having written songs and releasing “DIY” demoes, the band tested the waters playing shows around New England. After a short hiatus, Young Other was revitalized with the introduction of members Devin Stetson (Bass/Backup Vocals) and Kyle Shays (Drums). With the lineup fully completed, the band quickly made its way to No Boundaries Studios in late 2018, to begin recording their debut professional release with Chris Piquette. The product of this endeavor would become the EP, “Between The Few”. As they beg%n the spreading word of their upcoming release, the band began to play out in February 2019, with their first show back being sold out alongside Saving Abel and Tantric. This set the pace, as Young Other began to travel and play from as north as the Canadian border to as south as North Carolina, they started to spread awareness for their upcoming release. The EP is set to release on all Streaming and Music Platforms on August 16th, 2019, with the title track dropping July 12th, 2019.

Electronic Act THE BRUTE: Announces New LONESOME HERO/AND I WANT YOU Split Single & Video

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

July 11, 2019 – Electronic act, THE BRUTE: is very pleased to announce the reclease of their new “Lonesome Hero”/”And I Want You” and their  new video for “Lonesome Hero.” 

For fans of David Bowie, Depeche Mode & Recoil

The double single “Lonesome Hero / And I Want You…“ is the debut of the group. The two songs contain echoes of classic electronic bands but given a more modern touch made for a mainstream audience. Both songs come along with a mix of driving bass lines, atmospheric vocals and lyrics that gain new meanings with each listen.

“And I Want You” was a kind of a thank-you to a muse that brought me back to life after a long and dark period. She brought me back to make music again.”

“The meaning of “Lonesome Hero” is ironic.  Many of us take ourselves too seriously or feel we are too important. Politicians, managers and sometimes your friends and even you put yourself into the center of the universe.  In fact, we all have our package.  Wall are the hero in our life and fight to survive every day, the tip girl at the diner next corner as well as the millionaire who fights to get paid his staff each month.  We all are lonesome heroes.”

– Daniel Gierke

Biography: The Brute : is an Electronica music group out of Switzerland and Germany and combines progressive electronic sound with haunting vocals and a melange of synthpop, blues and rock influences.

Daniel Gierke, mastermind of the project, has been writing songs for many years. At the beginning of 2018, the idea arose to steer his musical ambitions into a new direction. The Brute: was born and in May 2018 the video “And I Want You…“ was released on YouTube. The positive response of the audience and friends encouraged The Brute: to continue working on new material. 

The Brute: are in the studio right now for the upcoming debut album, which should be released in autumn 2019.

UNVEIL THE STRENGTH Release Official Music Video for “Hell’s Never Over”!

Unveil-The-Strength-2019-by-Fred-Morledge-PhotoFM-IMG 7709

UNVEIL THE STRENGTH—-featuring Mark WölfeAndy JamesMatt SnellMatt Guillory, and Tim Hassemer (former members of Five Finger Death PunchSacred Mother TongueInvidiaFlatlineDevolved, and Stratovarius)–has released the official music video for their single “Hell’s Never Over.” Originally premiered on Heart Support, “Hell’s Never Over” was directed by Matt Zane (Society 1).

“We believe in Heart Support because they are doing something no one else has done. They are bridging the gap for mental health in a relateable way that people and music fans can connect with. On one end you have the music fans that are maybe going through something and feel Isolated , trapped, and lonely. On the other end you have people making music about the very same feelings. The truth is, everyone goes through a dark place, but we have to remember its just temporary, just a moment. Heart Support is never above, never below, and always beside you.” – UNVEIL THE STRENGTH

Unveil-The-Strength-2019-by-Fred-Morledge-PhotoFM-IMG 7755

Unveil the Strength, a quintet composed of former members of iconic bands such as Five Finger Death PunchSacred Mother TongueInvidiaFlatlineDevolved, and Stratovarius are returning to the soul of hard rock: writing and performing real songs with real meaning. Says Matt Snell, bassist for Unveil the Strength, “We want to put the grown man back in metal – that spirit is being lost in the shuffle. We’re going back to the roots, to real fucking metal.”

Despite the band’s old-school approach to writing, they’re taking a contemporary approach to marketing their music. For their upcoming album, Unveil the Strength will not do a traditional record release. Snell reveals, “The landscape has changed so much regarding how to successfully get music to the public, so we’re going a different route. Right now, we’re halfway through the album and we have video concepts for every song. Instead of releasing all 10 songs at once that will just be put up on the internet to be stolen, our idea is to constantly release new songs all the time. We want to unveil this record to the public, with a video to go along with each song.”

Although the band is officially based out of Austin, TX, Unveil the Strength is truly an international band with members in London, Nevada, California, Colorado, and Texas. All of the band members have professional studios where they can record their own instrument’s tracks, so the group easily collaborates by file sharing.

Their first recording, titled “Foundations,” was recorded in Austin, TX. They wanted an edgier sound than what is currently being produced in the States, so they have been working with Rob Kukla of Studio Fredman and Henrik Uddof Henrick Udd Recording in Gothenburg, Sweden. Udd is known for his impeccable production with acts such as ArchitectsBring Me The HorizonAt The Gates, and Delain. The upcoming album slated for a 2019 release, is still in the recording process, but Snell admits, “The production is amazing on the new album. It accentuates that we’re an active rock band – but we’re a little bit heavier, a little bit edgier. It illustrates that we can write, and that we have an ear for metal.” Snell is especially proud of Mark’s lyrics, which he describes as “real.” Snell goes on to praise Mark’s extraordinary writing ability, saying, “Mark has had an amazing life. He is a Marine; a veteran. He’s lived on the streets, ya know? He’s seen and done a lot. He writes from his core being and writes real songs that relate to the band’s message.”

Exclusive BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING Performance Featured In New Horror Film, CLOWN MOTEL

IMG 0635

 BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING producer and bassist for legacy fetish/industrial act Lords Of Acid DieTrich Thrall has taken his horror approach in his bands music videos to the next step, co-producing a key scene in the newly released Clown Motel: Spirits Arise.

Released on June 4, 2019 in the United States and set for a drop date of July 29, 2019 in the UK, “Clown Motel: Spirit’s Arise” features Ari Lehman (the original Jason Voorhees from 1980 Friday the 13th), Tony Moran (the original Michael Myers from the 1978 Halloween), Martin Klebba (Pirates of the Caribbean), and Chalet Brannan (Cyborg X, Crepitus).

Player

Clown Motel follows a group of ghost hunters, coming from an old ghost town and a bachelorette party, returning home from Las Vegas. When the groups meet up, by mistake, they’re left to discover if the motel is really abandoned and haunted by the souls, of the clowns, that once lived there.

An exclusive performance by Beauty In The Suffering of the song “REVEILLE'”which features producer DieTrich Thrall and drummer Galen Wailing, both of the legacy industrial/fetish act Lords Of Acid, takes place during a key scene.

Writer and director Joseph Kelly weighed in on the collaboration, “DieTrich and his band brought our Las Vegas party scene from Clown Motel to life with a blistering rendition of their song ‘REVEILLE!’ Awesome energy!”

Executive Producer and Film Editor David W Bailey also chimed in, “DieTrich brought fire to the set of Clown Motel with his scorching song ‘Reveille’ that left the cast and crew speechless!”

Executive producer and co-star Don Schell, who plays the part of Chris in the film commented, “Beauty In The Suffering have already amassed a solid fan base with their initial zombie/horror themed music videos produced by mastermind DieTrich Thrall so it only made sense to have him bring his twisted talents to ‘Clown Motel!’”

Guest drummer Galen Wailing: “Having previously worked with Dietrich Thrall in Lords of Acid, I got the pleasure of working with him on his solo project Beauty in the Suffering. Always professional and a great guy to work with!”

Artist & producer DieTrich (pronounced “Dee – Trick”) Thrall is known for his extensive international touring with industrial legacy band LORDS OF ACID and MISFITS guitar legend DOYLE WOLFGANG VON FRANKENSTEIN’s solo project DOYLE. He was also a primary creative contributor to underground Marazene, who scored a hit – and the approval of rock legends NIKKI SIXX and TOMMY LEE – with their extreme cover of Motley Crüe’s “Live Wire.”

“For their first outing as a new band, Thrall and team decided to adopt a horror motif, beginning with the track ‘The Crazies (The Zombie Song),’ which is no doubt influenced by the horror classics of George A. Romero – not just the film of the same name, but his beloved Dead saga as well. ‘The Crazies’ is the first of three zombie-themed songs to be incorporated into a long-form music video conceived by Thrall (which is currently in production), and you’ll be hearing more about [the] project soon.” – Gregory Burkart (FEARnet.com)

“Beauty In The Suffering is an evolving concept I came up with years ago that best described a sense of optimism during some bright spots of an otherwise massive struggle against overwhelming odds.

Music I have been writing and expressing over the last several years has been uniquely intimate in reflecting those struggles and I am very excited about putting out some fresh ideas that represent the here and now.

Beauty In The Suffering deals with universal themes of love and loss, defeat and resolve, and struggle and triumph.

Everybody has moments where the road looks impossible to pass. But somehow, little by little we manage through our own inner strength and the purposeful placement of fate, chance, and karma. We emerge wiser and with a deeper understanding of ourselves and of our place in the world and – The Beauty We Glean From The Suffering We Have Endured Can NEVER Be Denied..

This is a journey I accepted long ago. I wear the scars of my personal triumph over my struggles with pride and I stand ready to face new challenges.

And, like the phoenix rising from the ashes, this is a new beginning. I thank you all for standing by my side during some very difficult years of active-inactivity. The future is wide open and full of nothing but payoff.” ~DieTrich Thrall 11.18.12

“[Beauty In The Suffering’s debut zombie themed music video ‘The Crazies’ is] ..A visual mini-epic.. Chilling!” – Gregory Burkart (FEARnet.com)

“Beauty in the Suffering’s debut song ‘The Crazies (The Zombie Song)’ is a thunderous assault amidst apocalyptic party lyrics!” – COMA Music Magazine

“[Beauty In The Suffering is a] charging electro soaked metal project that evokes the likes of Deathstars and Motionless In White with its thick and filthy tone.” – Necromag.co.uk

“Brilliant!” – Melissa Themeli (Our City Radio – Minneapolis)

Israeli Dark Electronic Act LIYA Reveals Her New Video, “No Meaning.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

July 2, 2019 – Israeli dark electronic act LIYA proudly announces the release of her new video, “No Meaning.”  

The “No Meaning” video was filmed on the streets of Tel Aviv, Israel and was directed by Ohad Elimelech.  The single, “No Meaning” appears on LIYA’s debut EP, “Listen” available digitally via Blind Mice Productions.  

For fans of: The Birthday Massacre & Depeche Mode

LIYA explains that “‘No Meaning’ deals with depression after a breakup… where there is no meaning to life and everything seems dark.” As she relates that every track on the EP is based on “true experiences I’ve had with the concept of love,”  she continues, “apparently for me heartache goes hand in hand in fueling my creativity.”

“Liya is haunting and beautiful on cerebral and visceral levels, creating a sexuality that is the ideal antithesis of any and all pop divas, with enough musical talent to validate it.  Her humanity bleeds over into the multilayered compositions backing her up. This is one artist who deserves recognition above ground for taking a chance and heading down her own path.” – AEA Fanzine

“…a great atmosphere with a good beat, dancy synth and then Liya’s beautiful voice… Really cool for a woman to make this kind of music! The industrial and EBM scenes are way too male dominated, and even sexist and misogynistic at times. We need more artists like this!” – Caroline Sometimes

Biography:

LIYA TREBITCH is a singer/songwriter from Tel-Aviv, Israel.

From playing the piano and composing since the age of 5, LIYA started making electronic music at the age of 23.  Inspired by new wave, synthpop, darkwave and industrial, her music has deep, dark melodies that take you out of your ordinary world.  She has also performed extensively throughout Europe and Israel with DJ Yahel while working on her own material.

Now presenting her debut EP “Listen” on Blind Mice Productions, LIYA is a must-hear for fans of the gripping, nostalgic intimacy of THE BIRTHDAY MASSACRE to the synth-heavy compositions of DEPECHE MODE.

Advance Praise for In The House Of Strange Affairs

“With a sheer multitude of musical styles and socialistic genres seamlessly meshing into a sordid melting pot of creative debauchery, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult retains the flag of anarchy among the masses with a ‘fuck you’ style and a ‘watch this’ smirk. Drenched in kitsch and soaked in gasoline, ‘In The House of Strange Affairs’ will become a looped playlist of hypnotic decadence in whatever listening receptical you choose.” – Jammerzine

“As far as a review goes, there’s not much I can say that could sell this record any more than it will already sell itself, T.K.K fans are practically addicts for this stuff. If the band emerged in 70’s New York in the cinematic world they’re so dearly devoted to they’d be on Travis Bickle’s hit-list for sure and would revel in in the fact of being so too. As uncompromising as they are unsavoury, T.K.K will always thrive in their very own house of strange affairs.” – Happy Metal Geek

“Eclectic,yet sonically appealing,by track two,the record has laid it’s landscape down, and has invited the listener in.With beats from the Land of Rhythm and Blues.raunchy vocals courtesy of lead singer Groovie Mann,and spoken-word overlays,the album is a strange affair all it’s own. Spotlight Tracks include “Gold To Grey”,the album opener,”Strange Affairs”,and the first song released from the album,”Year of the Klown“,which first saw release last year as part of a Sleazebox Records Sampler.” – Rock And Roll Infinity

“Per usual, TKK has outdone itself with originality. This phenomenal album is one that dreams are made of, a little dirty and a lot of good. The groove on this album is reminiscent of the new wave style of the eighties, and lets face it, it’s awesome. The sexual innuendos are noticeable. It is a sexy album, it is a good album, and it will get anyone in the mood for fun.” – Rock Documented

New Promo

Hailing from Chicago’s renowned Wax Trax! Records stable of recording artists, MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT have been conjuring up sonic tales of sex, blasphemy and kitschy horror since 1987. Along with label mates such as Front 242KMFDM and Ministry, TKK (as often abbreviated), helped develop the industrial music genre, but they themselves continued to evolve, creating one of the most diverse repertoires in modern day music. Their sound can be described as electronic rock, heavily influenced by both disco and funk. One of their most distinctive characteristics is the use of spoken-word samples lifted from B-movies laced throughout their songs. Since debuting, they have released 13 studio albums, and their music has been featured in a variety of films, television/cable shows and soundtracks, all the while making a reputation for themselves as one of the most notorious and controversial cult bands of their generation.

Artist Franke Nardiello and musician Marston Daley, two Chicago neighbors who enjoyed late night burritos while watching foreign horror movies on VHS rented from the corner store, began conspiring to make a trashy B movie (in the style of Russ Meyer and John Waters) to be called “My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult”. While the film itself never came to fruition, they also wrote some music to be the accompanying soundtrack. Both worked at Wax Trax! Records in Chicago, and when the label heard the tracks, they were intrigued and eager to release it.

The duo took the title of the film as the name for their band, and decided to focus on the musical group full time. Taking the stage names Groovie Mann(Nardiello) and Buzz McCoy (Daley), they worked on creating an occult-biker meets disco-rock influence look for the project, which included a bevy of voluptuous back-up singers and dancers known as the BOMB GANG GIRLZ. The New York Times wrote, “Sex, blasphemy, big beats and go-go dancing; they’re all in a day’s work for My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult ”. This attracted the attention of indie fans and the ire of religious groups in practically equal measure. They released their first album I See Good Spirits And I See Bad Spirits in 1988 followed up by the hard-hitting dance floor classics “Kooler Than Jesus” and “A Girl Doesn’t Get Killed By A Make-Believe Lover Cuz It’s Hot,” which featured no-wave chanteuse Lydia Lunch on vocals. By the time they released their second album, Confessions Of A Knife (1990), they were far and away one of the biggest selling acts on the label.

In 1991, the band embarked on the decadent “Sexplosion! Tour”, titled after their third album. Alternative Press reviewed the show as “Sin-sational!”. The tour was a success and the record sold so well that they signed a deal with Interscope Records shortly afterwards, and the single “Sex On Wheelz” became a sizeable radio hit.

Hollywood also embraced the group, recognizing the unique cinematic aspect of their sound. The band’s music has appeared in a slew of films and tv/cable shows including, director Ralph Bakshi’s “Cool World”, Paul Verhoven’ssaucy “Showgirls”, MTV’s “Beavis And Butthead“, and the cult film classic “The Crow”, in which the ensemble make a cameo appearance performing their song “After The Flesh”. More recently the KULT was written into the story line of the 2014 film “Sexy Evil Genius” starring Seth Green.

THRILL KILL KULT continue to release new material via their own SleazeBox Records label (sleazebox.com) and tour extensively with a rotating cast of musicians and dubious characters, however the core of the project has always been Nardiello and Daley, both on record and in the live act. Their performances sizzle with sleaze and infectious grooves, as Melody Maker once described, “A red hot cabaret from Hell”.

They begin their 4th decade this year with the release of a new album, In The House Of Strange Affairs on February 14th, and a North American tour commencing May 5th in Las Vegas. The current line-up is Groovie Mann (vocals), Buzz McCoy (keys), Mimi Star (bass), Justin Thyme (drums), Arena Rock (Bomb Gang Girl).
