Beneath My Sins Live @ Hell, Diest.

A live show is always something that brings happiness to the world, and when the band in particular brings a show that sweeps you from your feet the moment they start performing, it becomes one of the best shows ever.

Beneath My Sins is one of those bands that can get you in trance the moment they start performing their anthems. This female-fronted, four-piece symphonic metal band from France, possess the power to keep it’s audience enchanted throughout their entire set. If not by a powerful voice, then certainly it will be done by the amazing guitar play, or the vast drum pieces.

The band itself also carries a beautiful story with them. It becomes clear soon, why this bands needs more attention. Enchanting people with their music, is their purpose in life.

Started in 2015 by Clément Botz (guitar) and Emma Elvaston (vocals), Beneath My Sins offers a diverse musical universe, ranging from symphonic metal to folk music.
In March 2017, Beneath My Sins released its first opus “Valkyries of Modern Times”, which allowed them to perform in Belgium with the local band Skeptical Minds and two European tours shared with the Russian thrash band Pokerface.

Quickly perceived as the emerging symphonic metal band on the French scene, Beneath My Sins had the opportunity to tour with the famous Canadian band Kobra And The Lotus during their stay in France in June 2018, as well as with Imperial Age in 2019.
For their second album, “I Decide” released on March 20, 2020, Beneath My Sins decided to work with Fabio D’Amore, bassist of Serenity for the production part. Thanks to this collaboration, many talented guests such as Matteo Sisti from Eluveitie, Melissa Bonny from Ad Infinitum, Michele Guaitoli from Temperance and Visions of Atlantis as well as Fabio Lethien Polo from Elvenking joined the ship.

Like all, Beneath My Sins was delayed in its run by the health crisis. Nevertheless, the band took advantage of this period to offer their fans new covers “made in Beneath My Sins”, like a symphonic version of the song “The Eagle flies alone” by Arch Enemy.

2021 is the perfect opportunity for Beneath My Sins to work on a new project: “An Acoustic Journey”. Indeed, all the members of the band took advantage of the pandemic to improve their skills and learn to play new instruments. Clément took lessons in traditional instruments with Matteo Sisti d’Eluveitie. This is how the idea of ​​an acoustic epic was born. “An Acoustic Journey ” consists of arranged tracks taken from the first two albums of Beneath my Sins but also contains three new compositions that the band intends to release on a next electric album already in preparation.

More than a third album, “An Acoustic Journey” is the first opus of a new challenge for Beneath My Sins.

Cathubodua Live In Hell Diest, Belgium.

Cathubodua is an epic symphonic metal band from Belgium that brings you more then just their music. Their songs tell tales that can bring shivers to those who listens to them. Not only do they do that on their albums, but also on stage they bring an extraordinary atmosphere with them.

It’s clear right from the start that you will be dragged into an epic adventure once you hear the first notes playing and it’s certain that you cannot escape from it.

We’ve seen them perform in Hell, Diest, Belgium. They played a set that was filled with enchanting melodic tunes, straightforward drums, and the epic voice of a powerful female singer.

As soon as they had started playing, they got the crowd with them, that was certain. They didn’t even had to take too much of an effort for that either. Their performance level and their stage skills certainly did that for them.

About halfway through the set however, there was a moment in which the music transformed into a musical masterpiece in which the voice and the violin were the central parts. Only to transform back into the heavier stuff, and by doing that they certainly left the traditional Cathubodua mark.

If you were not enchanted already, you definitely would have been during their brilliant performance.

Album review: Atreyu – Baptize.

“One solid album indicates that Atreyu is back from never really being away.”

When it comes to heavy metal, Atreyu should definitely not being excluded from the list of bands that are worth mentioning. The quintet from Yorba Linda in California have established themselves in the ranks of metal bands during their career in the music industry over the years.

Now they are back in action again and they would love to share that with the entire world, in the form of a new album, titled: Baptize. With this album they also confirm that they still have enormous strength and perseverance, with which they can hit hard with.

Baptize starts with a mysterious sound and a synchronous vocal line, like that of a choir. The intro doesn’t last very long, tho, but it does emphasize something that awaits us, just like the title of the song itself says: “The strange powers of prophecy”.

When moving on to the next song it immediately becomes clear that the band has not been quiet and that they have been working hard over the years. Good use is made of both electronic elements, as well as the heavy influences, Which is what Atreyu stands for. A piece of music with that has something for everyone. You can hear this great mix throughout the entire album.

The lyrics in the songs usually also have a certain depth and it quickly becomes clear that the band has put a lot of thought into it. There are fast parts in the album, as well as slower parts.

From breakdowns with strong screams, drums and guitar, to faster work with clean vocals and guitar solos. Everything is there that makes Baptize an album worth listening to and you certainly don’t have to be a die-hard Atreyu fan to do so.

The songs on the album certainly have a high head bang factor. Combined with catchy vocals, this ensures that the songs will be pounded into your head quickly enough, so that you will be able to sing them along in no time.

What is also characteristic of the band, and what they have been able to achieve again in this new album, is that the titles of their songs are always short but powerful. That is an extra good method for popping the songs into the minds of their listeners.

To put it briefly: Baptize contains everything you would expect from an Atreyu album, and that makes it another masterpiece that the California quintet is proud to share with you.

Tracklist:

  1. Strange Powers Of Prophecy
  2. Baptize
  3. SAVE US
  4. Underrated
  5. Broken Again
  6. Weed
  7. Dead Weight
  8. Catastrophe
  9. Fucked Up
  10. Sabotage Me
  11. Untouchable (ft. Jacoby Shaddix)
  12. No Matter What
  13. Oblivion (ft. Matt Heafy)
  14. Stay
  15. Warrior

London-based Spiritual/ earth-centered indie pop folk duo: Shrinari, release new album called: Hold On To To The Hope, Though. Out November 24th!

British-Spanish indie folk duo Shrinari present their new long-player ‘Hold On To The Hope, Though’, a collection of deep, inspirational tracks recorded over the past few years, bringing the listener with them on a surrealistic journey on a path of discovery. You could call this music Genre Fluid, Sacred Funk or Spirit Soul. You could call it High Frequency Music or World Folk Pop. This beautifully-crafted collection is inspiration and full of love, light and positivity.

These eight tracks intertwine the personal and the collective, giving voice to the challenges we are facing in these changing times. Always delivered with a Shrinari sense of optimism and hope filled wonder, their music reflects the point of no return that we are living through historically, together with the timeless themes of human existence and evolution.

“This moment in time feels like a crucial point. We’re in the middle of a bridge we’re crossing between what we have been and what we will become. This album is a bridge as well between many aspects: the personal and the collective, the ancestral and the contemporary, the magical and the mundane, logic and intuition, fear and trust, etc.,” says Rafael Marchante Angulo.

Based in London, Shrinari is a leading duo on the British spiritual music scene, who tour internationally. Formed by Lucidia Omamori and Rafael Marchante Angulo, they incorporate harp, guitar and vocals into their music, which has a strong spiritual component and carries a message of hope, unity and connection.

This follows the single Standing Rock’, which features London-based chamber-pop artist Heren Wolf, notable Spanish drummer Edu Olmedo and the sublime horn section from Brixton reggae, dub and afrobeat band The Soothsayers. Lucidia worked with Basma Jabbar, putting Lucidia’s poem to melody and music, which was then developed and produced by Rafael Marchante Angulo (and performed at the Extinction Rebellion protests in London and BBC Airwaves Festival).

The duo had announced this album with lead track ‘The Gift’ with an earth-loving video by Kai Ohio, based on a concept by Lucidia Omamori, and the cinematic ethno-folk-pop ballad ‘Desert Path’, reflecting a magical encounter with the supernatural world and a tale of love with all its twists and turns.

Shrinari make music that brings hope, fuels a positive outlook on life, and promotes ecological and spiritual awareness. With their new musical output, Shrinari continue their transcendent adventure in consciousness and celebration of love and life through the synergy of sound and song.

“These lyrics depict personal and profound moments of exploration and discovery in my inner and outer journey, articulating my process of understanding my inner conflicts, integrating the effect of witnessing and contributing to the destruction of this planet we have been gifted. This is a reminder to ourselves and others to hold on to the hope, to perceive and to experience beauty where it still dwells, and to take action to shift the balance in a positive direction for the future generations. A reminder to honour all the teachings we have received along the way on our diverse path of spiritual searching, philosophical understanding and to show up with deep conviction to love this planet and preserve the beauty for all life as a result of clarity I have received in moments of realisation,” says Lucidia Omamori.

As of November 24, the ‘Hold Onto The Hope, Though’ album will be available digitally everywhere, including Spotify, Apple Music and directly from the artist via Bandcamp. A percentage of profits from all their music goes to support projects aimed at protecting the earth and indigenous peoples.

Manchester deathrock-postpunk trio: Inca Babies, release eighth studio album, called: ‘Swamp Street Soul’. Out Now!

Post-punk swamp-goth rockers Inca Babies pare back with resent ‘Swamp Street Soul’, their eighth studio album. This collection of new tunes, drawn from their fantastic imagination, offers a hefty dose of the gritty sound that the Manchester-based deathrock / postpunk outfit have become known for over the decades since forming in 1983. 

Produced by Simon ‘Ding’ Archer (The Fall, PJ Harvey) at 6Db Studios, the clarity and fullness of sound on this 11-track offering surpasses that of any previous Inca release.

Today Inca Babies is a trio made up of Harry Stafford (guitar, keys, vocals), bassist Vince Hunt (A Witness, Blue Orchids) and Rob Haynes (The Membranes, Goldblade) on drums and percussion. It’s been seven years since the final release of their Death Blues Trilogy – ‘Death Message Blues’ (2010), ‘Deep Dark Blue’ (2012) and ‘The Stereo Plan’ (2014).

‘Swamp Street Soul’ takes us across a tightly euphoric path of differing moods and new arenas of guitar songwriting. This LP continues the band’s explosive exploration of goth-punk and death-rock and trash blues with epic cautionary ballads. Frontman Harry Stafford has written a fulsome collection of tall tales of madness, fearfully larger-than-life characters and extravagant yarns, backed by a no-nonsense rhythm section locked into a pounding backbeat.

The trio also present their new video for ‘Crawling Garage Gasoline’ (along with b-side ‘Grunt Cadillac Hotel’, produced by Harry Stafford at NoiseBoy Studios in Salford. Earlier, the Incas previewed lead track ‘Walk In The Park’ with a strutting blues beat, infectious guitar lick and bluesy post-punk musings.

“This ‘Crawling Garage Gasoline’ is a re visiting of a 1980s Inca’s classic, all bluster and ‘pedal to the metal’ speed punk. It’s a tale of the descent into the maelstrom but don’t forget to get some gas along the way. The urge to re-record this came from its popularity as a live song at recent Inca gigs, now paired down and with more bite, it has certainly stood the test of time. It was originally released on the ‘Surfin’ in Locustland’ EP back in 1985 and was also recorded for the Incas’ third John Peel session in June that year,” says Harry Stafford.

A vibrant part of Britain’s early postpunk / death rock scene, Inca Babies’ story began in 1983 in the now-legendary deck-access flats of Hulme (Manchester), which were intended as ‘cities in the sky’ for young executives but quickly became cockroach-infested slums mostly inhabited by students, artists, and drug addicts. True to DIY ethos, they self-released their debut single ‘Interior’ in 1984.

With a further six singles and four albums over five years, all of which entered the UK Indie Charts, they also recorded four sessions for BBC’s John Peel show in 1984-1988 before calling it quits. Since reforming in 2007, they’ve released three albums and toured extensively around Europe, including Russia, as well as North America and India. Renewed interest in the Incas was propelled by Cherry Red Records ‘Best Of’ compilation release ‘Inca Babies 1983-87: Plutonium’.

As of November 23, the ‘Swamp Street Soul’ album will be available digitally everywhere, including SpotifyApple Music and Bandcamp, where it can be ordered directly from the band. It can also be obtained via the Louder Than War shop.
