CARPATHIA Releases Lyric Video for “Sacrifice” Off of Upcoming ‘1912’ EP

Boston based Alternative Progressive Metal CARPATHIA has released the lyric video for, “Sacrifice,” off of their upcoming EP, 1912, due out 6/10/2019.

1912 the EP is the culmination of three years of growth and hard work, loss and repair once as a band and now, as a family.” – CARPATHIA

 2170036-1

A band is not created solely from a group of people deciding to get into a room and write music together, it’s not that simple. Once you’ve found that ‘sound’, it becomes impossible to ignore that you’re now bound to these songs you find yourself pouring every last drop of blood, sweat, and tears into. You will, quite literally, fight for them. It is with those individuals that make up a truly unique and inspiring band. Carpathia and its members have a history, and it all started with Bobby Drinkwater. As an East Boston, Massachusetts native, Bobby has been consistently involved in music, and in 2016 started a nameless band with long term goals. Bobby keeps the conversations short, but has so much to say behind his instruments. Bobby plays multiple instruments including guitar, violin, piano, and drums. Bobby first found co-member Jason Barsotti to join his new project. Born and raised in Malden, Massachusetts, Jason first picked up his drum sticks at the age of 10, and his long term practice has lead him to a fast paced, hard hitting sound that resonates. Jason’s humble and pleasant personality quickly takes a backseat when he steps behind his drumkit. Bobby had continued his search in bandmates close to home when joining forces with Andrew Miller, the two had met and worked together in a previous project back in 2014. Andrew is from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, but has resided in Lynn, Massachusetts since 2013. Throughout Andrew’s life he has been surrounded by family and friends who have been hitting stages in music and comedy. It is no wonder that Andrew’s charismatic humor filled personality would follow in similar footsteps. Andrew has played guitar long term in a number of bands both in North Carolina, and Massachusetts. He had transitioned to playing bass in 2013 for a previous project and found his own unique sound in the process. These three musicians had wrote and played music together between 2016 and 2017 as an instrumental band while trialing a number of potential vocalists. Finally, in January 2017, Samantha Alice of North Kingstown, Rhode Island joined as the last vital part of this project. Samantha brought her strong vocal skills and even stronger personality to the group. Samantha’s history in singing has taken her from talent competitions to all state choir, and beyond. Samantha was first approached by Bobby after meeting at a local show and sparked an interest in trying out for his new project. It took no time at all for the solidification of this band to come to completion and Carpathia was officially named as such on April 22, of 2017.

In Hollywood, Ca, a dark alleyway forbodes, connecting Studio 56 and the Record Plant. Music legends of today and yesterday from Elvis, Marilyn Monroe and Mel Torme holed themselves into these studios, all of them making records in the same one hundred yard radius. And, like many stories of legend, the lost replaced the heroes, the junkies replaced the giants, and Satan replaced Sinatra. In the middle, another entryway leads to DeadZone Sound Design. Home of Dead Girls Corp. for the past 10 years. Imagine Depeche Mode with a beat box through a distortion pedal , playing ultra pop at a Satanic disco. Dave Teague burns a hypnotic guitar straight into the psyche. Bruce Miyaki churns the vulgarity within the soul on his bass. Then Mel Mcfail hammers the earth like a sledge , forcing trauma to the body. And all of this abrasion is honed and torqued by the pop-evil song crafting of Toddy T..With the old millennium come and gone, the real Apocalyptic party is ready to begin….

Year of the Locust is a motley collection of personalities from the American Northeast. Hailing from NYC, Washington Dc, and West “By God” Virginia, the band’s sound has come into it’s own under the watchful eye of producer/guitarist Brain Bonds.

“I remember going to see them at The Masquerade in Atlanta. In the moments before YOTL hit the stage I (and everyone else) heard some sort of guttural gang chant erupt from the backstage area. It really grabbed everyone’s attention. The tenacity they brought to their show and the way they commanded the stage was reminiscent of the arena bands I enjoyed as a kid. That type of power is a unique thing, and I knew I wanted to know more about them.” -Brian Bonds

VarnaTheCravingArt

Los Angeles Hard Rock Band VARNA has released the lyric video for their single, “The Craving.”

“We are extremely proud to release such high driven female powered beast as ‘The Craving’ for 2019. This song about the push and pull of primal emotions you have instantly with someone–that carnal desire–but it never transforms into what you would like. You are stuck with the craving. Sometimes we just want what we aren’t meant to have.” – VARNA

Player

“’The Craving”’hit my ears last Friday and I definitely had it on REPEAT all weekend. You should, too. Singer Tiana Woods once again knocks it out of the park, delivering a track that lyrically arrives just in time for Halloween. The hook is infectious, and the overall tempo would go great alongside a scene where the hero or heroine is running away from their obsessed would-be paramour.” –Amps & Green Screens

AMORIELLO Release Lyric Video for Debut Single, “Battle Song (feat. Vinny Appice),” Off of Upcoming, Self-Titled Album

Amoriello - Digitial Artwork 1600x1600

Neo-Classical Hard Rock Project AMORIELLO–launched by renown guitarist, educator, and author Tom Amoriello and featuring former members of Black Sabbath, Dio, Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force, Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake, Quiet Riot, TNT, Loudness, Dokken, Impellitteri, and Cacophony–has released a lyric video for “Battle Song (feat. Vinny Appice),” the debut single off of their upcoming self-titled LP. A tribute to metal legand Ronnie James Dio, “Battle Song (feat. Vinny Appice)” includes a thunderous drum solo for 16 bars by the former Sabbath/Dio drummer with an emotional vocal delivery from Nick Z Marino from the current Malmsteen lineup. Impelliterri bassist James Amelio Pulli and ex-Yngwie keysman Michael Troy also contribute their substantial talents to the track.

Player

“The entire AMORIELLO album is emotional, and ‘Battle Song (feat. Vinny Appice)’ is one that takes on the unending conflict between two sides: aggression versus calm, combativeness versus compromise. The music is taut and stormy, then somber and solemn.

The whole album is a testament to the metal legends who inspired me, written with world class musicianship from those same icons. I dedicated this track to Ronnie James Dio (I attended his last concert in Atlantic City, NJ) and wanted someone who had been a part of his sound, hence Vinny Apice. In the course of of recording, showcasing his unique style, he let loose for 16 bars in that incredible solo, and all of the ambitions were met.”

PRIMITIVE RACE Release Lyric Video for “Bed Six” Off of ‘Soul Pretender’

Primitive Race Cartoon

PRIMITIVE RACE, featuring the late, legendary former FAITH NO MORE and BAD BRAINS front-man Chuck Mosley, has released a lyric video for the single “Bed Six,” off of their 2017 released Soul Pretender LP.

“The funny thing about Bed Six is all of our songs on Soul Pretender had working titles of Bed and just a number. For whatever reason Chuck decided he was just going to call this song Bed Six and work the title into the song. I gave him so much hell about that and he refused to change it. So we ended up just going with it. It was just an inside joke.” – Chris Kniker

Untitled

“When I listened to the music, ideas just came pouring out,” Mosley had previously stated. “I couldn’t say no to doing the record. When we completed the first few tracks, I found myself wishing I had written them. Not just the lyrics…just good heavy riffs and grooves really sucked me in. The melodies and words came super easy with this music. Even though it’s a whole different vibe it brought out a side of me I haven’t experienced since writing with Faith No More.”

Early Praise for Soul Pretender:
It’s hard not to view Primitive Race’s sophomore outing, Soul Pretender, as the next chapter in Chuck Mosley’s epic comeback story. On the record, out Friday on Metropolis, Mosley is positively radiant, sounding better, sharper and more engaged than he has since the heyday of Faith No More’s Introduce Yourself. After years of being relegated to the struggles of “solo” outings and hard-to-find Cement discs, Mosley here is raspy – he wears his age incredibly well – and utterly menacing as he lurks behind lurching guitars and the occasional twinkle of a keyboard, the landscape darker than his previous work. And, damn, does it work! – Pop Dose

If Primitive Race’s stylistic trajectory is to be considered, as exhibited in the group’s two albums; add to that, the invigorating (but at the same time, inadvertent) inclusion of Mosley’s memories into this latest offering – then there should be something more that can be expected from the collective’s future projects. For the meantime, let your senses get drowned in pleasant torture in the sonic machinery of this scorching undertaking. – CrypticRock

Time will tell what the next incarnation of Primitive Race will hold, but if the first two albums are any indication, then it should be just as great while continuing to establish the supergroup’s place in the world of punk and industrial rock. – mxdwn

“Mosley discussed Soul Pretender with me during our interview about two months ago, praising it as unlike anything he had ever heard and claiming that it spoke to him in a way that he felt beyond compelled to work on this project. After listening to the album, I can understand why Mosley was drawn to the project as Soul Pretender is a unique and seamless collision of alternative, industrial, and punk rock. Just as Mosley said, it really is unlike anything else. His pride for the album as a whole was not only completely justified, but his own performance stands out as one of the best among his diverse career. While it is a common cliché to claim someone went out with a bang at the top of their game, it’s clear that Mosley truly did. As a whole, Soul Pretender, is an excellent record and a must hear for fans of 90’s alternative and hard rock as well as those who prefer modern rock from the last decade. After listening to Soul Pretender a number of times, it is clear that Primitive Race is truly a band to watch out for.” Spill Magazine

Independent, Jacksonville, NC based Funk Rock Trio BRIDGE TO BREAKDOWN has released the official lyric video for their single, “Rain.” Fans can watch BRIDGE TO BREAKDOWN’s behind the scene antics for “Rain” online *HERE*.

4T2A6074

Comprised of three lifelong friends dating back to their high school days, Bridge to Breakdown is one of the most unique acts to surface out of the North Carolina scene. The group takes direct inspiration from legendary acts such as Audioslave, Rage Against the Machine and more.

With Talyn Detmers, who has been referred to as the “spawn of Mick Jagger and Jim Morrison” laying down powerful vocals and guitar riffs, Malcolm Matthews who brings the rap and rhythm vibes on guitar and vocals, and Taylor Cefalo rounding out the group on drums, the trio is an unstoppable force.

More recently the guys have started early production and writing for their first full length album with JP Audio Labs out of Greensboro, NC and working with the same production team known for Something Clever and Between the Buried and Me. They hope to drop the full length LP sometime in late-2019 to early-2020.
