Johnossi

Swedish rock duo Johnossi announce new album titled, Mad Gone Wild for release via BMG on Feb 11th, 2022. It’s their seventh album underlying a pulse-pounding psychodrama and intimate portrait of a man slipping into insanity. Today, the band have streamed new single “Koala Before The Storm” alongside a new CGI made video in celebration directed by Zach Beech and Nasos Apostolopoulos.

Burning The Oppressor

Canadian death metal quintet Burning The Oppressor have released new single “Martyrize”, the second track taken from their upcoming album Damnation, out 29th October via Candlelight Records. A powerful song tackling the issue of domestic abuse, watch the video for “Martyrize” below. The band comment:

“Martyrize” was written, a few years ago, in a surge of anger and incomprehension after news broke out of abuse suffered by a seven-year-old girl at the hands of her father and stepmother in the eastern townships, Quebec. The circumstances of her death sent a shock wave through Canada and authorities ordered a public inquiry to shed light on how child protective services could have failed so miserably, in this particular case, even though they were apprised of the situation well before her death.

During the last year, the number of cases of infanticide and feminicide have also, unfortunately, been on the rise; no doubt emphasized by the current pandemic. Reports of domestic violence have skyrocketed in the past year and a half, we felt it was important for us to try and bring attention to these tragic situations without romanticizing the suffering of their victims.
