A Voodoo Doctor “The Doctor” came across a girl who looked lost and scared, crying in the alley way behind his lab. He used his magic to turn her into a doll, but his spell was disrupted from her terrifying and taunting screams, she remained half human, half doll. As Raven lived in the dark world of the Doctor, she secretly learned his magic and conjured up a demon, Muppet, who she made her eternal protector and trapped him inside her heart. The Doctor and Muppet created Stitches to search for those who are looking to join our dark world in the 13th hour.

Raven Black released their first Single, “Died Inside” on September 7, 2013 at The Roxy, selling out the venue that night. They continued to work in the studio and released their first EP, “Midnight Dreary” in June 2014, successfully packed the house at the famous Viper Room.

A little horror version of their already theatrical presence in the metal community. “We wanted to have some blood in this one,” says Raven.

After a quick rest, Raven Black toured through the Southern parts of the U.S. on their way to SXSW. They played the Heart of Texas Rock Festival in March 2017. Winning fans from across mutiple genres at SXSW. Raven says, “I am so proud of being able to share our METAL music with other fans of country, hip hop and pop genres. I was so surprised and happy to see them buying our music. It was fun and the only thing missing was the big mosh pit, LOL, although there was a small handful of metalheads respresented this year at SXSW. “

​After returning back home to Los Angeles, the band quickly prepared for their first Headliner Tour, The Hex O’Clock Tour, which kicked off in Guadalajara, Mexico at the Roadhouse Voodoo Bar, July 7, 2017 and returned to the U.S. to begin their onth long tour throughout the U.S. from coast to coast.

Ornimental Release Lyric Video for “Love Thy Enemy”

Ft. Lauderdale, FL based metal band Ornimental has released the Lyric Video for their single, “Love Thy Enemy.” Originally premiered on Tattoo.com, “Love Thy Enemy” is available to stream and download online.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKE2HGC9yqA&feature=youtu.be

“Love Thy Enemy is about somebody that betrayed someone so bad that they could start dedicating their life to start a war with them. It could start as revenge with that prideful, arrogant person, but decided that the righteous path of love is better for both sides. ” – Ornimental

Click HERE to Stream / Download “Love Thy Enemy” Online

Ornimental is a band with a mission, a mission to put the groove punch, originality, and excitement back into metal, where it belongs. The name itself, Ornimental, comes from the Latin prefix Orni (to celebrate or decorate) and the root word mental (of intelligence or insanity), and true to form, Ornimental delivers an intelligent, possessed sound that celebrates the origins and foundations of hard rock and metal alike.

Harkening back to heavy metal legends like MegadethVan HalenMetallicaArch Enemy, and Pantera, famously led by deceased guitar legend Dimebag Darrell, Ornimental doesn’t rest on writing and simply producing crunchy, appetizing, complex guitar licks. Oh, they produce hair raising Hard Rock at its most fundamental level, rest assured, but the song writing and arrangement has a classical, even groove edge Blues, reminding the listener of a perfect marriage of Eddie Van HalenZeppelin, and Beethoven.

As if that marriage weren’t appealing enough, a deeper blues undercurrent exists in the band’s original music, paying homage to Eddie Van Halen, Eric Clapton, the skilled David Gilmore of Pink Floyd, and many other legends, yet Ornimental’s music has a modern influence which is subtly inherited from avant garde bands like DisturbedFive Finger Death Punch, and Trivium.

Ornimental was founded by lead guitarist Danny Perry and drummer Julio. Danny has been writing unique, intoxicating original music for over half a decade. Danny Perry’s admiration for Beethoven lead him to be the Lead Guitarist for the Miami Dade Film Gaming Orchestra which won an Emmy in 2016. By absorbing the classical structures of the masters together with his passionate influences such as Eddie Van Halen, Dave MustaineKirk HammetStevie Ray Vaughan, Dimebag Darrell, Jimi Hendrix,and Eric Clapton. Danny’s powerful voice is only trumped by his dedication to performance and skilled guitar playing. Danny has been offered music scholarships by renowned music schools.

As a graduate of the world renown SAE Institute in Audio Engineering Danny’s focus on detail to music brings you closer to the songs. He was born an engaging front-man, though, and has found a niche harmonizing with talented rhythm guitarist and back-up vocals from Ariel. Julio’s skill as a percussionist empowers the emotion you feel every minute. Topping it off is bassist Sully who brings a skill that resonates in his playing. Together they have successfully brought the band to life in the past few years.

Since rounding out the band, Ornimental’s popularity has skyrocketed, as the band has performed in the more chic, popular venues, and even being called on to play at the world famous Revolution Live. Most recently performed on the same bill as Children of BodomDeath AngelTYRNon PointHavokLacuna CoilEye EmpireSid Wilson from Slipnot with Keen & Sid, OverkillScott Soto, and more. They’ve had interviews with Horn’s Up RockNew Times Magazine, and even been featured on Blabbermouth Magazine. They had airplay on national radio and now a larger audience is demanding their music be played on radio. Ornimental’s goal is to take over the metal universe, playing in large venues, opening for the big boys like Metallica and Van Halen, and more of their many influences.

It may sound trite, but Invidia is truly a brotherhood. Each member of this brotherhood has a story that reflects the quote above.

INVIDIA features former members of Five Finger Death Punch and Skinlab. Recently Invidia announced the addition of Evan Seidlitz as the newest member of the band, replacing vocalist Travis Johnson. Seidlitz is no stranger to the frontman spotlight, known for his work in VYCESThrown Into Exile and Grimace. The band is very excited to be on this new journey with Seidlitz and has no doubts that fans will be pleased with what he has to bring to the table.

Hot on the heels of the release of their debut As The Sun Sleeps, Invidia are set to return to the road this summer first in support of Wednesday 13 through July. Then following a quick break the band will devastate the nation again as part of the Metal Alliance Tour alongside Overkill.

Moscow Releases Debut EP and Music Video for ‘Queen of Sin’

Heavy Electro Rocker Moscow has released the Official Music Video for the title track along with her debut EP, Queen of Sin.

The tracks on Queen of Sin were created with support from Producers Shawn McGhee (Hideout Studios – HellyeahFive Finger Death PunchPapa Roach), Brian Steele-Medina (Gemini Syndrome),  HatebreedEscape The Fate),and upcoming Boston Producers OH NO! ØKTAPUS.

I had a lot of fun writing and recording Queen Of Sin – our first EP that comes out June 2nd. It has a nice diversity of rock subgenres – you can find some post-hardcore, nu-metal, alternative tunes in it. ‘QoS’ is a sort of defial for those who say rock and sex can’t go together. “Make Rock Sexy Again.” We wanted to get a mix of hard rock tunes and guitar riffs with sensual feminine vocals and dominatrix attitude. – Moscow

Moscow Official | Facebook | Instagram |Twitter

Call her Tsaritsa (queen) like the Russian rockers all do, or call her Moscow – her nom de guerre in the international music scene – but you are going to call (attention to) this talented young lady who embodies the rebellious spirit of rock and the consummate class of royalty.

Young, Russian, Free and Beautiful, a 16-year Moscow (then known as Elizaveta Tursunova) struck out on her own to explore the world. Not wanting to be tied down to the wealthy young businessmen who had been trying to impress her, her young Russian schoolmates that adored her, or the rockers on the scene who hung on her every word, she fled to Cambridge, England.

Never satisfied to stay in one place or know only one way of life, Moscow traveled to and lived in London, Paris, New York and Los Angeles, growing even more bold and worldly with every stop.

From the age of 15, Moscow was a part of the Russian music scene. “In Russia, the market is dominated by cheap pop music. It is next to impossible for a rock/metal band to break out. I hung out with some really dedicated and talented people, they taught me not to give up,” Moscow remembers. “They all thought I was older – I think I celebrated my 18th birthday for 5 years straight.” When she was in Cambridge and New York, Moscow was trained in musical theater and became a triple threat – dancing, singing and acting. “Musical theater will always be in my heart. Anytime I visit Broadway or the West End, I must go see a new musical. In London, I became friends with the cast of Rock Of Ages,” she explained. She decided to bring that musical’s premise to life and become the rocker she was destined to be.

Throughout her travels, there was something missing… something she found in Los Angeles. The Sunset Strip music scene spoke to her sense of rock history and her musical style. Having read about all her favorite artists’ lives in Los Angeles (Motley CrueSteven TylerSlash) the Sunset Strip seemed surreal to Moscow. It was there that she put down roots to record her material and the “Queen of Sin” video. Her approach is summed up by her quote “In popular music, I believe it’s time to look back to our roots – the richness of Muddy Waters, the theatricality of Alice Cooper, the romanticized excess of Motley Crue – and combine what we learn from them with a 21st century outlook,” says Moscow.

The team of Shawn McGhee (Hideout Studios – HellyeahFive Finger Death PunchPapa Roach) and Brian Steel Madina (Gemini Syndrome) produced “Queen of Sin.’ “Working with Moscow was straight fire. From the moment she walked in the studio we knew she had something amazing to offer,” says producer, Shawn McGhee. “She has the attitude and the talent to back it up,” adds co-producer, Brian Steel Madina. “It’s refreshing to work with someone who has such a clear vision of her endgame. Moscow is a force to be reckoned with.”

She collaborated with RAGE (Trivium, Hatebreed, Escape The Fate) on the “Queen of Sin” video – making it an epic presentation of her talent, power and beauty. “She fit her name, one would think she’s already toured the world several times and have sold a few million albums… On set she was fearless, her natural charisma just overwhelms you…even my crew, some of whom are just hip hop heads, as well as some of the background talent were all asking for her autograph and wanting pictures by the end of the day,” explains RAGE. “She was transforming herself in that very moment and it was with no effort, because in my opinion not only is MOSCOW ready to sneak attack the world of rock and metal but she is truly and wonderfully…’The Queen of Sin’. “

Just breaking into her 20s and breaking into the music world, she is wise beyond her years. “We all have God and the devil in us. That is where the spark for ‘Queen of Sin’ came from,” she explains. That spark is destined to set the rock world afire in 2017!

Athanasia Release Official Music Video for “White Horse” Off of Upcoming LP

Metal group Athanasia have released the official music video for their track “White Horse” off of their upcoming album The Order of the Silver Compass. “White Horse” was directed by Matt Zane and is the third single off of their upcoming full length album, The Order of the Silver Compass.

White Horse was written after watching too many of our friends and family members getting sucked into the vacuum of substance abuse and spat out as a shell of who they once were. This song is for anybody who’s ever lost somebody to addiction. – Athanasia

About Athanasia

Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | YouTube

ATHANASIA are a power trio playing an original hybrid of classic arena/ black/thrash metal styles. The band was founded by Caleb Bingham in 2004 under the name ASCENSION. As a result of passing around the band’s early demos on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, he landed a gig with the then newly formed FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH in 2005. Upon being released from the group in 2007 due to his young age, he continued to write under the name ASCENSION, recording several more unreleased demos and one EP at the behest of veteran Roadrunner Records A&R Monte Conner. Largely due to that label’s merger with WMG, negotiations broke down and the band was shelved again in 2010 while Bingham played with Swedish death metal act ZONARIA for 4 years. Upon parting ways with ZONARIA due to a leg injury sustained while playing with the group, Caleb decided to put all his efforts back into what he worked so hard to create…

Joined by bassist Brandon Miller and veteran drummer Jason
West (MURDERDOLLSWEDNESDAY 13MURDER FM), Caleb Bingham resurrected the band under the name, ATHANASIA, recording its first full-length release entitled The Order of the Silver Compass. The album is complete and the band are now ready to take their unique blend of Heavy Metal all over the globe!!!

Crystal Ignite Releases Single “Everything You Break” Featuring Ben Moody

Australian rock artist Crystal Ignite has released her debut single, “Everything You Break,” featuring Ben Moody (Evanescence) off of her upcoming, as yet unnamed EP. “Everything You Break” was written by Crystal Ignite, Andrew Bojanic, and Liz Hooper and produced by Crystal Ignite and  WizardzOfOz.

This is one of the most emotional tracks I have written, it’s a tragic love song, a break up song, all about realizing that the person you loved was not who you thought they were…. Having Ben Moody feature on guitar makes this track even more special…. the breaking Evanesence album he cowrote was extremely influential on me in he was early stages of my career, and is a true honor – Crystal Ignite

Facebook | Twitter | Instagram

To say that Crystal Ignite is excited about returning to Australia to tour would be a total understatement. Crystal is bloody ecstatic! Backed by a stellar new group, the five piece outfit are embarking on an eleven date national run of shows in support of Crystal’s powerful new single “Everything You Break.”

Best known to audiences as the dynamic and empowering frontwoman of globetrotting hard rock act Bellusira (who have sadly called it a day), Crystal Ignite has kickstarted this brand new chapter of her career by pouring her creative heart and soul into an EP’s worth of sessions in Melbourne just last month.

“Everything You Break” (ft Evanescence’s Ben Moody on guitar) is an eclectic mix of tribal drum driven alt-pop that still draws upon Crystal’s love of all things rock, while telling a tragic tale of love gone wrong with the initial deception and eventual personal redemption that encompasses it.

Crystal will also be announcing a touring line-up for her return to the US later in the year.

As a singer-songwriter with Bellusira who released two albums and toured throughout the US, Australia and New Zealand with names such as HalestormSeetherHell YeahThe Misfits, and Fly Leaf, the band also landed on major festivals with KornRob ZombieFive Finger Death Punch, and many more. Crystal’s relocation to Los Angeles also saw her work closely with co-writer Will Hunt (Evanescence) and band member Koichi Fukuda(Static-X).

Having also just secured a world-wide licensing deal with Superpop.co(Sony/ATV and Extreme Music, Crystal Ignite is set to unleash her powerhouse vocals and songs once again, showing why she’s one of the most talented women in rock today.

Devilskin Release Official Music Video for Second Single “Pray”

reduced_promoPopular New Zealand based hard rock band Devilskin has released the Official Music Video for the second single off of their second studio album, “Pray. The video was directed by Tim Van Dammen on location in Hamilton, New Zealand, with the album recorded at Modern World Recording studio in the UK with Producer Clint Murphy (with whom they recorded their No 1, Platinum selling debut album We Rise).  Be Like the River is available to stream on Spotify and Google Play, and download on iTunes.

We are beyond excited to be releasing our new studio album Be Like The River on November 11th. The title comes from a lyric of ours ‘Be like the river and cut through the stone’, the message is about reaching your goals through perseverance and unwavering determination. It has been an incredible journey so far for Devilskin and we feel this album really encapsulates and represents our evolution as a band, as songwriters and as people. – Devilskin

dskin_-_blt_river_itunesDevilskin has established themselves as a household name in their native New Zealand. Formed in Hamilton in 2010, this four piece rock band are bonded by blood: Paul (bass) and Nic (drums) are father and son, Jennie (vocals) is Nics’ Aunt and Pauls’ sister in law, Nail (guitar) is Pauls evil twin.

The band exploded onto the NZ rock scene with the infectious “Little Pills” and “Never See The Light” singles. Their much anticipated debut album, We Rise, released on July 11, 2014 and went straight to the top of the charts, remaining as the #1 Album and #1 Kiwi Artist Album for 3 weeks, achieving Gold sales after only 2 weeks.

The album was certified Platinum in February 2015 with sales exceeding 15,000 albums; an incredible feat in this new age of music. In November 2014 the band released their Live At The Powerstation dvd/cd which captured the band at the end of the We Rise tour, slaying a sold out Powerstation crowd.

11.11.16 is the International release date for their second studio album Be Like The River, recorded in the UK village of Tetbury located in the Cotswolds.

Devilskin once again partnered with Clint Murphy, who produced and mixed the album. To launch the latest album, Devilskin have committed to a heavy schedule which includes a performance date with DISTURBED in Auckland’s Vector Arena 18th November. Then a full NZ tour and 17 dates nationwide. Grammy Award winning band HALESTORM will support Devilskin on 7 dates in NZ before heading to Australia for 3 additional dates (Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane). Devilskin will return to Europe in February 2017.

The songs are real, raw, and honest; Jennie’s vocal delivery could be both the sweetest and the scariest voice you’ll ever hear. Deep with texture and steeped in emotion, each song has a life and a personality of its own. A journey through the highs and lows of our deepest desires and secrets, the songs reflect light and dark, whispers and roars, and have a recurrent theme of love tempered with pain.

With a staunch work ethic from the very beginning, the band has toured relentlessly, garnering an impressive fan base and unprecedented support with radio play, live shows, and extraordinary album sales. The band’s attention to detail with their live show gained them tremendous credibility; while other bands were cutting down on production costs to save money, Devilskin was putting everything into the stage, sound, and lighting to make each show spectacular.

There is a very specific reason Devilskin connect so well with their audience: ithe honesty and bare courage they display in their songwriting along with their sincerity, touching peoples’ hearts with words and music.

The band has toured Australia three times, played showcases in London and Los Angeles (2015), and toured the UK & Europe (2016). They have also shared the stage with Mötley CrüeAlice CooperSlashRob ZombieFive Finger Death PunchMegadethKorn, and Coheed & Cambria. Devilskin headlined the rock stage at Homegrown Festival Wellington January 2016.

Sept 3 – Toronto, ON – Hard Luck Bar
Sept 4 – Montreal, QC – Cafe Campus

Beautiful but brutal. Chaotic but calculated. It’s the balance between these seemingly opposing foils that Toronto’s Ascendia so perfectly strikes with their beastly brand of Hard Rock/Metal. Their mammoth sound spans the Atlantic, uniting elements of North American metal with a foundation rooted in the symphonic tradition of European metal, and is poised to appeal to even the most discerning genre purists.

The four-piece – currently comprised of vocalist Nick Sakal, guitarist/vocalist John Lov, drummer Billy Lov, bassist Stephen Kerr – has been amassing serious attention and accolades from Canada’s heavy music community over the past couple of years. They earned a slot on the bill for the Toronto stop of the 2013 Rockstar Mayhem Festival alongside heavyweight headliners like Mastodon, Amon Amarth, Children of Bodom, and Five Finger Death Punch. They’ve been tapped to support the likes of Haken, Next to None, Into Eternity and Single Bullet Theory, and now, they’re set to capitalize on the buzz with their first North American Tour supporting Circus Maximus. The final date of this tour will have Ascendia playing their largest show yet; Prog Power USA.
