Weekend – extended edition. The Monday…
Hercules Morse – “Do It Right”
With an ample appetite for riffs, groove and melody, South Coast alternative rock crew Hercules Morse are primed to be one of the bands to emerge from the underground in 2016. Already armed with vast critical praise and favourable descriptors from Kerrang!, Rock Sound, Team Rock and Kerrang! Radio, the riff-smiths now press on with the release of their captivating new video single “Do It Right”.
The single is taken from the band’s explosive new EP Equine Size Comparison, out in stores now (Amazon link).
Wild Souls – “Dirty Mind”
Wild Souls are proud to release their first single video, “Dirty Mind”, taken from their upcoming album Game Of Love released 31 October 2016 on Lions Pride Music.
Palace of the King – “Beyond the Valley”
Palace of the King unveiled their second full length album Valles Marineris in July 2016 which deepens the band’s footprint on the international rock music scene by expanding on the “raw, energetic, imaginative and boundary-pushing” (Dedicated Rocker Society) qualities of their debut through an all-new 10 track collection of blues and psych-infused hard rock.
Vocalist Tim Henwood commented upon the new album release:
I feel like we’re really honing in on our own distinctive sound now. I love our early recordings but after traveling around the world and playing over 300 shows in our first three years as a band, we’re growing and evolving. It’s real, it’s from the heart.
Vola – “Starburn”
A musical journey into the mind in pursuit of happiness, set to a mix of 70’s progressive rock, modern day electronica, industrial and metal, topped off with clear, beautiful vocal lines: that’s what young Copenhagen quartet Vola is offering on their debut album Inmazes, out now on Mascot Records. Guitar player and singer Asger Mygind sees a steady development from 2011’s Monsters towards Inmazes:
On Monsters we started experimenting with 7-string guitars and a lot of polymetrics – odd-time signatures over a straight 4/4 beat in our case. And it worked so well on the EP that we wanted to elaborate on this for a full album. But I think we have gotten better at producing our music as a band, which has given way to a tighter and more in-your-face vibe on Inmazes. We are also one person less than on Monsters (guitarist and singer Niels Dreijer Madsen quit the band in 2012), so in my case I’ve had to fill out more space as guitarist and singer, as Niels also played guitar and sang a lot of vocal harmonies.
