Revolution Harmony, the brainchild of British music lecturer/journalist Ray Holroyd, has announced the July 18th release of its debut All-Star charity single, 'We Are.' The song features vocals from Serj Tankian (System Of A Down) and Ihsahn (Emperor), as well as guitar solos by Devin Townsend. Composed, arranged, programmed and produced by Ray Holroyd in Vancouver, the complex international studio project was recorded in North America, England, Norway and New Zealand, then mixed by Rohan Onraet (Slipknot, Machine Head) in London, and mastered by Ted Jensen (Green Day, Muse) in New York. The single also features Stefan Loh (We Claimed Sentience Once - signed to Revolution Harmony) on guitars, and additional vocals from the young up-and-coming UK singer Abbie Johnson. Vancouver-based non-profit record label Revolution Harmony was launched in 2011 by Holroyd. After founding the non-profit Grade 9 Records in 2008 and growing the label over three successful years, Holroyd decided to expand upon what he had originally established as a means for his students to sell their music and donate the profits to charity, and Revolution Harmony was born. Revolution Harmony acts as a two-way channel, providing an outlet for artists to release their music worldwide and earn money from it, and providing an inlet for the label profits from that music to be redirected to charities that restore harmony between all people, animals and the environment. The lyrical theme in 'We Are' is based on the concept behind Revolution Harmony, which is essentially the belief that musical harmony has the power to inspire a revolution towards societal harmony. The single is dedicated to Nelson Mandela and the memory of Lucky Dube, regarded as South Africa's Bob Marley, and will be released worldwide on Mandela Day (18 July), with all proceeds donated to Buskaid, a charity that provides free music lessons and instruments to children in the townships of South Africa.
Looks like another anticipated album for us to look for later on in the year. ANTIGAMA releases information for their newest LP that will be released through Selfmadegod Records. Check out the official press release below, along with album artwork and track listing. Expect a review for sure.
Poland’s relentless outfit ANTIGAMA has disclosed the full details on their pending full-length, “Meteor”, unquestionably one of the most anticipated grindcore albums of 2013.
ANTIGAMA’s sixth studio full-length since forming in 2000, “Meteor” is the revered act’s first proper album since 2009’s acclaimed “Warning”, and following two LPs with Relapse Records, will see the band returning to longtime allies Selfmadegod Records, their first LP for the label since 2005’s innovative “Zeroland”. The recently completed composition “Meteor” once again proves all over again why the band continually reaps such accolades with the media fans as both one of the most brutal bands of the genre as well as one of the most cutting-edge. With eleven new tracks of primal ANTIGAMA annihilation, “Meteor” reverts back to some of the bands more intimately brutal early material with thirty minutes of ultra-tight grindcore explosiveness, yet continues to carry the band’s detrimentally inventive edge, integrating brief progressive soundtrack ventures and more noise and programming elements. Recorded at Progresja Studio in Warsaw with producer Pawel "Janos" Grabowski (Masachist, Lost Soul) and mastered by Scott Hull (Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Pig Destroyer), the album also features a guest appearance by Michal Lapaj from world renowned Polish progressive rock band Riverside.
ALIASES surprise everyone with this newest release. Well, they surprised me at least. I hadn't heard much from these guys in a while and suddenly I see a surge of shares of this video in my feed. Check out "Exasperated". The technicality is awesome and for some reason I feel a wave of nostalgia invade my brain as this track plays in the background. I can't quite place what the sounds remind me of exactly, but I welcome it anyway.
ALIASES is known to have a few lineup problems, at least vocalist wise, but it seems that these guys have finally found someone that will get the job done. Check out the video below and if you dig the song, check out the FREE DOWNLOAD link.
Hopefully we'll see some details pour out soon about their upcoming full length album.
