“Sleep… stay asleep.
My soul yearns for one last look at you
Before I leave you here to be hidden within idyllic peace
It’s the perfect memory and I keep it close to me
Bound with wire
Cut me deep into the seams
Flow the colours of the queen
I live like I’m the only one, the fragile one that fights to survive
Crown the liar
Buried deep beneath the cross
Tainted hearts forever lost
Sweet treasure, let go of all you know
Sweet treasure, you are the one, you are my only true pleasure
Now watch me burn it all down, parasite town
Far down below it’s a fight for survival
So scared as I am of you
I’ll burn it all down, parasite town
I call this survival
So scared as I am of you, parasite town.”
On the 28th of March, Johnny Wore Black released their much anticipated debut album, “Walking Underwater Part 1.” It was full of atmospheric elements combined with dark and melancholic vocals soothing to the psyche. Click here for the review of that album. Just five months later…that’s now in case you are counting; a new single, ‘A Cut Above’ is upon us in preparation for, as you might have guessed…”Walking Underwater Part 2.”
While continuing with an atmospheric and emotive style, ‘A Cut Above’ is more upbeat lending itself to more of a hard rock vibe. If you thought the sophomore album would be a continuation of this year’s earlier release, ‘A Cut Above’ certainly does not intend to let us think that. The song will also be accompanied by a “new and intriguing video.” No doubt, it will be interesting to see what is in store for “Walking Underwater Part 2.” For now, their is no set date for the second installment except that we can expect “later this year” (most likely October) for the new music.

So does Beethoven. When I’m 119, whatever type of metal is recorded when I was a mere 104 will probably sound even better, too.
Calling fans of Porcupine Tree and Airbag – if you like them, I believe you’ll like Empty Yard Experiment (EYE) very much too.
EYE is a multinational band that formed in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, in 2006. The line-up is Bojan Preradovic (vocals and rhythm guitar), Mehdi Gr (lead guitar), Kaveh Kashani (bass), Gorgin Asadi (keyboards) and Josh Saldanha (drums, percussion and backing vocals). They’ve opened for big-name bands including Metallica, Evanescence and Anathema.
The band can’t actually be pegged to a single genre such as post rock. That label gives some idea of “sounds like” but they have developed their own, highly evocative and emotive style.
