Every now and then we come across something that is just a bit different.
As summer looms, it must be a good time to release metal because it seems to be coming at us from all angles. Here is another group of music files, videos, and clips to take a listen to. This is a diverse grouping, so be prepared.
Pyramaze is about to release Disciples of the Sun on May 22nd. The title track below is their first video. They fall under the umbrella of melodic metal, but don’t let labels steer you in any particular direction. The music should do the talking.
Some of you might know this young man as “the shred-master of feels” in the Polish prog band DispersE, or from his channel on Youtube, as he’s quickly becoming a well known name in prog rock/metal circles. Jakub Zytecki has the talent, the skills and the charm, all of which he’s ready to show off to the world in his upcoming solo debut, released next week. Today the second single was presented to us, and in similar fashion to the first one, it left me deeply impressed and excited for what’s to come. Easy flowing interesting compositions, a great vocalist and dreamy guitar work – the songs freshness and complexity exceeded my expectations by far. Have a listen!
Relapse Records is celebrating their 25th anniversary and in doing so they are giving us over 180 (!) songs spanning the label’s entire history, free of charge (or pay what you can, and please do). This sampler includes one track from almost every band that has released their work on Relapse since 1990.
Happy Anniversary Relapse Records! Let’s headbang!
