Inviolate, a US metal outfit, reveal a live performance video of the song Sisyphus.
For a while now I have been meaning to get an article written about Inviolate, for some reason, have never quite been able to get round to it, so as a very brief introduction – an audience eye view of the band on stage.
The English alt-rock band The Pocket Gods are finalising a further LP scornful of the gatekeepers of the music industry.
The Pocket Gods
The forthcoming album, will be a further one hundred tracks each lasting approximately thirty seconds.
If previous articles on their concept of 100×30 LPs slipped by unseen – to explain briefly – the premise arises that as places such as Spotify will pay royalties after thirty seconds playing of a song, in material crowded in to never ending playlists, why write songs lasting more than thirty seconds?
Their first LP of this concept was included in the Guinness Book Of Records for the most songs on an album and they released a follow-up based on the works of Sheakespeare, Spotify didn’t take too kindly to the scathing criticism of their business model and stopped accepting these sorts of submissions.
Not ever dissuaded on issues with which they find grievance – The Pocket Gods raise the vacuity again with the song – The Perverts Of The Music Industry – from the forthcoming album.
The Australian metal sextet Lycanthrope are due to release the LP Chapters on the 16th of February 2018.
Deploying three six string guitars enables Lycanthrope to deliver – brutality, melody and intricacy with none falling off the page and no matter where the speakers are turned there is a nuance to be discovered.
From the forthcoming album, Chapters, Like A Ghost.
Their début song – Sure To Exist – slides through the room in backwashes of curling guitar, pulsing percussion, rumbling bass and echoing vocal that minds the listener of laying on a shoreline at night and listening to the soft bubbles of tidal surf lapping over a sandy beach.
CORTA, on the basis of the one song that exists, are a set of musicians who have much to offer the world of music and are a band I look forward to hearing much more from in the ensuing years.
