Some people see things that are, and ask, why? Some people dream of things that never were, and ask, why not? Some people have to go to work and don’t have time for all that. - George Carlin
"Life, Death and Everything in Between" is the Danish, screamer-songwriter quartet Stöj Snak's sophomore album. 12 tracks of heartfelt, folky troubadour-punk infused with plenty of raw energy and melodic catchiness.
Released four years after the debut, this album completes the transition from one-man-band to four-piece. The songs still revolve around singer/songwriter Niels Højgaard Sørensen's raspy yet melodic voice but are clearly built to be performed by a band - full of instrumental finesse and ripe with washboards, double-bass and other trash instruments (counting members...
With their recent epic concept album "Sun Worship Kingdom", Mostar, Bosnia, and Herzegovina based atmospheric post metal quintet Brainswitch are giving us the latest glimpse into their mesmerizing soundscapes, sharing new video for the track "Psithurism Astronauts"! Directed & edited by the band's guitarist Goran Tiro.
Asked about the meaning of the song, the band commented: "This song is about a 'love-hate' relationship with the environment we live in. There are so many things to love and enjoy and at the same time so many negative aspects just draining you down. It is a call to a philosopher to come to our town, not to despair, but...
Danish screamersongwriter quartet Stöj Snak announces their second full-length album "Life, Death and Everything in Between" and drops the first track "Fire"
The track is one of the more action-packed songs and sees the band taking it's folkpunk sound up a notch, blending in almost thrash-sounding riffs and plenty of screaming while still maintaining a catchy, melodic edge in the songwriting.
The singer/songwriter Niels has the following to say about the track:
"Given the subject matter of the song, it’s appropriate that it comes out on 9/11. A date that has been carved into our collective consciousness for how profoundly, the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the following conflicts and wars have shaped the world, its politics and our...
Nord premieres a lyric video for "Lo-Hi" from their debut Play Restart.
As the frontman and bass player Mihael Prosen stated, the number is equally important as the rest of the material mainly because it reveals some deeply emotional period of his life. The lyric video was the right decision because it sets the importance of the lyrics upfront.
"Quench" is the 3rd single from the band's new album "OPT-OUTism", freshly released by Geenger Records.
The video is entirely made by the band, so here's what they have to say:
"Quench" was written in February of 2019 and although it is a song about social distancing and staying at home, it has nothing to do with this whole Covid thing. Also, no Kichos were harmed during the making of this video.
"OPT-OUTism" is available on vinyl in two versions (splatter/marbled and clear) and digitally.
Kevlar Bikini strikes back with their fourth album meaningfully named "OPT-OUTism". This Zagreb-based hardcore punk trio delivers another comprehensive collection of immensely powerful tunes, which have been saturated with gracious servings of magnificent elements of metal and noise rock. The band sounds vital, relevant, highly energetic throughout the entire album without any intention to decrease the intensity and slow down.
We are talking about the band who did this whole social distancing and self-isolation thing long before it was cool. As a result, they have a new album "OPT-OUTism", which provides sheer sonic aggression separated in ten high-octane compositions, loaded with threatening vocals, massive riffs, catchy basslines and a badass drumming performance that will certainly shake your entire body.
