BEDLEM — Feat. Paul Wandtke (ex Trivium) — Releases Debut LP, “Back to Bedlem”

band with logo

Chicago based Metal Band BEDLEM, founded by ex TRIVIUM touring powerhouse PAUL WANDTKE, has released their debut LP BACK TO BEDLEM.

Bedlem is a bombastic display of groove via Joey Brassal’s catchy guitar style and Paul Wandtke’s monstrous drum kit abilities complimented by Brian Ahern’s bass lines. Their melodic hooks are stringed in with poetic lyric content via vocalist Mike Petrasek’s lyrical vision. There’s no doubt that this quartet from Chicago, IL is the next up and coming act from the Windy City.

“I had to make a decision, move to Florida and continue drumming for Trivium or stay at home and take a chance on something. I couldn’t be more thrilled about our debut album, Back to Bedlem. There’s nothing more thrilling than being in a band with my own brothers. We are literally family. This is not a work for hire situation and it feels so great!” ~ Paul Wandtke

The new EP titled Fragile Machine to be released on July 6th, 2018, explores the questions of what comes next in human evolution. What does it mean to be a human, if consciousness can be stored in a machine?
The artwork depicts an enormous server cube floating in space, after the technological singularity, which contains mankind’s digitized minds living forever in an infinite dream created from code. The material christened ‘Scorecore’ by the band, ranges in dynamics and will resonate with fans familiar with heavy weights such as Soilwork, Amaranthe, and In Flames.

Embracing the mentality of a collective art project, the core members–ex-Divinity guitarist Alan Sacha Laskow (ENDITOL, the Order of the Gray, Walk As Chaos), bassist Brent Stutsky (ex-Breach of Trust, ex-Death Valley Dolls), along with vocalist Jerrod Maxwell-Lyster (ex-Out of Your Mouth, ex-Autobody, ex-the R.A.C.E.) pulled together an insanely talented cast of collaborators including:

Guest Vocals by Andrew Ivashchenko (Shokran), Renny Carroll (Flux Conduct), Jonathan Thorpenberg (The Unguided), David Chunn (Vallite) and Mark Haggblad (Unveil the Strength)
Guest Guitar Solos by Andy James, Mattias IA Eklundh, Daniele Gottardo and Paul Wardingham.

Additional Guitar Production by Carson Slovak (August Burns Red, Everclear)

The self titled first EP was released by the band in 2015 to critical acclaim, leading to live performances with: Godsmack, Apocalyptica, Trivium, Obey the Brave, Into Eternity, and Kobra and the Lotus, as well as Premieres with Revolver and Metal Underground, and collaborations with production heavyweights like Joey Sturgis and Will Putney. The band was awarded a music video grant for “Almost Human” from Telus Storyhive and primary composer Sacha was the featured artist for Toontrack Metal Month: https://www.toontrack.com/news/customer-spotlight-alan-sasha-laskow/

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.

“This song is about one of the toughest times in my life with a a long-term relationship ending and just coming to the realization that it was time to move on, whether we wanted to or not. For the video, I randomly found this location under a bridge in Austin and loved it so much that we did our band photo shoot here as well as the music video. I just love the juxtaposition of light and dark and the endless pillars in the background. We got it all done in an afternoon, despite 20+ takes. But we couldn’t be happier with the final result.”

To quote Billy Squier, “Stroke me”, “Stroke Me” says the music business to every band out there busting their ass to make it. ETA is now done with that song and dance. Too many bands doin’ the same thing really led us to the point of trying something different. ETA’s sound is looking to the future, and ‘Odyssey” is our first big step in that direction. In wanting to get people’s attention to our evolution and survival, ‘Tongue Tied’ became the perfect choice for a first single. An anthem for shutting up your haters by succeeding where they thought you had failed. – Taki Sassaris

Cross The Divide Release Official Music Video For “Sail On The Stars”

11870784_933989106639806_2210307536465062496_nHard/Progressive Rock Trio Cross The Divide have released the Official Video for “Sail On The Stars”, the sophomore single off of their upcoming full length debut album Fearless, due out 10/14/2016. The video was directed by Caleb Chamberlain and Will Hermonat.

“‘Sail on the Stars’ is a song that deals with loss. The message in this song is that when a person is left behind due to death or parting, it is important to be able to let go and find comfort in the right places. In the case of hurt, forgiveness is a vital part of that parting and grieving process. This song deals with all of that in a simple idea, a blessing: ‘sail on the stars.'” – Cross The Divide

Official Cross The Divide | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube

One of the fastest growing, and most in-demand original artists in New England is southern New Hampshire-based Cross the Divide. The three-member band combines heavy guitar riffs and melodic vocals to produce a unique blend of progressive and hard rock styles served up onstage with their engaging, high-energy performance. In an increasingly superficial era, Cross the Divide brings not only sweet guitar licks and driving bass lines, but also deep lyrical content driving home themes of hope, strength, and justice. The band has coined their own sub-genre for their sound: Storm Rock, which they define as “intense technical rock with deep lyrical themes”.

Though the band has been in existence since September 2010, Cross the Divide did not truly begin to define itself in the industry until mid-2014 when guitarist, Zac, and bassist, Chase, welcomed their hard hitting drummer Jake French into the project. Since that time, the band has played alongside many major artists including DisturbedGodsmackBreaking BenjaminAlter BridgeSevendustTriviumPop EvilSeetherSkillet10 YearsBuckcherryEscape the FateStarsetIslanderFor Today3 Years HollowScott Stapp, and many more.

Cross the Divide is currently gearing up for the release of their highly-anticipated full-length album Fearless, which will be out on October 14, 2016. The 11-track CD will feature their hit song “The Perfect Storm,” which has seen airplay on terrestrial and internet radio all over the world, as well as upcoming single “Sail on the Stars”. Fearless is the first professionally produced record for the band, and the first recordings with the current lineup.
