Satirical and Fun: Black Eddy Drops New Punk Rock Album 

‘Home of the Mad and the Shameless’ is the eccentric, off the wall album that floods every ear with energy. The Blackpool four-piece, Black Eddy, will be dropping the album on the 25/06/22 and they have not held back. Simultaneously fun, energetic and emotionally poignant, Black Eddy have put their soul into the album. Their lead single, Repost, captures their grunge punk rock spirit. Repost opens with catchy guitar before all four members come together to unleash their satirical sound. The six track album demonstrates the best of Black Eddy.

The album captures both the honest emotions and the fearlessness to just have fun with music. Repost satirises internet culture with the recurrent line of ‘you have the right to be offended’ among other anti-status quo chants. 

“With Repost we wanted to soundtrack the doom-scroll. It’s no secret that millions around the world struggle with internet and phone addiction (ourselves included). Like all the songs on the album, we wanted to tackle a real issue that we’re going through by making as much noise and having as much fun with it as we can!”

Countless bands have tackled themes of mental health and war yet it is refreshing to see Black Eddy examine our internet culture in such an unapologetic and energetic way. Their subversion of mental health tropes makes the album what it is and Black Eddy turn dark topics into songs you can both smile and mosh to. The songs are inspired by the bands’ real world struggles with schizophrenia, addiction and memory loss. Yet they turn these struggles and emotional vulnerability into cathartic hard rock. 

Don’t just listen to Black Eddy through your speakers, though, their explosive live shows have made them a must see in the Blackpool scene. Black Eddy are building their empire through gigs and they can only grow. With the upcoming release of their new album, they undoubtedly will.

The Brazilian rock trio ‘Pentral’ hit new heights with their latest single ‘Aiming for the Sun’

Aiming for the Sun is Pentral’s latest single from their outstanding LP What Lies Ahead of Us. The track wastes no time in grabbing your attention, as the first second of this song includes a rapid, turbocharged guitar riff that is sure to blast through your walls. Aiming for the Sun also contains a thumping drum beat combined with intoxicating vocals that pierce straight into your heart.

“Aiming For The Sun” is a heavier song without leaving groove behind. It’s the second chapter of the couple’s saga, when the Amazon land-grabbers show their real face and what they are up to. Through its dark vibe and pulsating lines, this song tries to express a feeling of urgency, a claim for help, showcasing the agony of the people in the woods.” – Pentral

Passionate about the environment, Pentral’s LP is a concept album that tells the devastating tale of a disorientated family within a world of rage, greed and hatred that is destroying the amazon jungle. Pentral sees their music as a powerful way to spread universal messages of equality, anti-racism and anti-discrimination. The Brazilian trio consists of brothers Victor (Singer), Vagner Lima (Drums) and Joe Ferry (Bass Guitar). Their passion for all things rock and roll is almost as strong as their obsessive desire to create a safer and tranquil world for a new generation to be raised in.

This album is even more remarkable when taking into consideration that it was recorded during an international pandemic! Victor describes the LP’s recording process:

“The album was recorded during the COVID-19 pandemic and it was a huge challenge wearing face masks almost every time. There was tension and fear among the musicians and engineers of getting infected. Besides that, the songs are not “straight”. Pentral uses a lot of uncommon and odd time signatures and harmonies, so it was pretty hard to record the final version of the tracks. Atmosphere, harmony, melody, groove and a strong message to make people think. For the band, this is what music is all about.” – Victor, Pentral

Review: Anarchy Reigns' Hard and Heavy Tune 'Hypocrisy'

 

 
 
 
With social divide, negative political impact and war raging on, people look to leaders, artists and professionals to guide them into the light, and this time Anarchy Reigns are taking a shot at being the voice of the people.
The new track ‘Hypocrisy’ is a gritty, politically charged, fury fueled anthem. The boys from Anarchy Reigns have constructed an opus which is fantastically delivered, and received with open arms.

 
 
The heavy gain and volume turned up to 11, the phat and fuzzy classic metal sounds and the melodic sorcery that hitch so brilliantly conveys, all come together to make this track, and we are so glad that they did.
Be sure to check out the track as well as all the other great content coming from the Anarchy Reigns camp:

Heavy new album on the way from Deadly Circus Fire: ‘The Hydra’s Tailor’ album

12 track album due on June 16th through Musicarchy Media

Described by Metal Hammer as “one of the most imaginative and formidable” heavy rock bands currently plying their trade, Deadly Circus Fire are a London based band who thrive on getting stronger and stronger in their battle with the mainstream. Their sound has been compared to the likes of Tool, Mastodon and the Deftones, mixing heavy guitar rock with melodious moments to create something special.

PRimageIt takes something special to turn heads at publications like Metal Hammer, who nominated them at Bloodstock Festival 2011 for ‘Best Upcoming Band’. Meanwhile, Classic Rock described Deadly Circus Fire as “one of the most striking young prog metal bands to come on the scene in the past couple of years”. For a taste of what Deadly Circus Fire are all about, here’s the video for album track ‘House of Plagues’:

It’s clear that Deadly Circus Fire are a band with the genuine potential to make a mark on the metal music scene. They’ve already supported huge cult band Skindred on a European tour, counting it among their career highlights so far, while Skindred vocalist Benji Webbe has said he’d like to collaborate with them in the future.

Deadly Circus Fire also previously caused quite a stir by performing in zombie clown make up, inkeeping with their creepy moniker – itself inspired by a true life event in 1944 which claimed the lives of 200 people and injured more than 700.

In time though, the music of Deadly Circus Fire has evolved to speak for itself, making a huge impact both live and in the studio without the need for such on stage histrionics.

For more on the album, check out the video and full album review link below.

By Definition single ‘Warrior’ due early June, following ‘The Concerns of Mortal Man’ LP (May 26th)

https://soundcloud.com/bydefinition/warrior

Brighton metalheads offer their first releases since debut EP ‘Over Clocked, Under Threat’.

Having played Hard Rock Festival in Ibiza, and with giants like Black Label Society and Black Stone Cherry, five piece By Definition are really starting to get the recognition they deserve.

No strangers to the heavy rock bear pit they create with their live shows, their sets are notorious for their energy and originality. With an eye-catching front man described as ‘cool as sh*t’ by Underground Reviews, one memorable show in Holland also saw guitarist Rob smash two of his guitars within 30 minutes…

Single ‘Warrior’ is a stomping, anthemic track driven by a hard, chugging melody reminiscent of the aformentioned Black Stone Cherry.

The new album, ‘The Concerns of Mortal Men’, was born from a new found self-assurance the band have recently found in their sound.

Frontman Si puts it less subtly: “We don’t give a shit what people think anymore”.

‘The Concerns of Mortal Men’ finds the band trying to bridge the gap between rock and metal whilst taking influences from hip-hop rhythms and technical inspirations from electronic music. Their biggest project to date, they have brought in Alan Douches (Motorhead, The Defiled Cannibal Corpse, Black Dahlia Murder) to master the album.

Beyond making great music, having an original live set and developing a strong following, By Definition are not your every day rock band. All self-confessed comic book geeks, Dan has a degree in theatre writing while Rob (guitar) produces electronic music in his spare time. Meanwhile, Si (vocals) has a passion for loose leaf tea – a hobby which once got him stopped at customs while they analysed a stash of green brown leaves he had with him…

‘The Concerns of Mortal Man’ LP is out May 26th, followed by single ‘Warrior’ in early June.

 

Press quotes:

Black Label Society styled, whiskey soaked, dirty rock”.
Rock Sound

“Straight-forward, heavy-hitting and down right filthy. Each song shit-kicks you with punishing riffage, bombastic drumming and a whiskey-swilling attitude”.
Heavy Planet

“Best described as the 30 year old you’re not entirely sure you invited to your party, who has drunk all the beer…You may not have invited him, but frankly, he doesn’t care and you kind of want to get to know him anyway…”
Noise Addiction

 

Tour dates:

26th May – Sticky Mikes – Brighton

28th May – Bar 42 – Worthing

30th May – The Hermit Club – Brentwood

3rd June – Bull & Vic – Dartford
