Doug Ferony's successor of an album "Sings Italian Favorites", was the one for all who love music, because it made those who heard feel good if not really good. Thus, after said album being out for sometime, a single titled "Quando, Quando, Quando". It's a Bossa Nova styled pop song of the Italian kind, that was written by Alberto Testa and Tony Renis back in 1962.

The song being so timeless that many other artists, some majorly known such as Caterina Valente, Silvio Francesco ‘67 Engelbert Humperdinck ’68, Tony Renis ’88, to name a few. But not only did those but some more recent additions include such as Michael Bublé with Nelly Furtado in 2005. American entertainer Pat Boone had recorded the song in 1962, singing it with English lyrics written by Ervin Drake.

Now that this track has been released from Doug Ferony's latest album, Bongo Boy Records is very proud to have both releases out for all to behold. With this said, the track and it's accompanying album going well together. In fact, the song has this vibe that is very uplifting, fun, and highly entertaining to say the least. The melodies of the music drawing you inward, as the vocalization provides the remains, really capturing this essence that is purely timeless.

It preserves this endlessness that never seems to quit. It has a contentious amount of energy, that keeps going and going, the vocals and melodies being so awakening, that you never get tired of them, you simply want more actually. It’s how a lot of the other tracks off the album “Sings Italian Favorites”, works from Doug Ferony’s album. He has this mystic passion about how he creates, let alone crafts together the music that he does. Even if it is some working’s you may have heard previously, he does it in a way that makes it new again.

That is how he is able to keep doing what he does. He adds on his own twists of it, that keeps it very refreshing and electric. It goes without saying that surely many will adore his styling of music, as it has so much offering by just the delivery of the music alone.

One-man Austin, Texas instrumental metal outfit Huelga has teamed up with Ghost Cult Magazine to stream his new song "Chinga de Perro". The project consists of jazz multi-instrumentalist Michael Fonseca and the song is taken from his upcoming self-titled EP which will be released on cassette and digitally in April.

Michael commented, "When I was a kid I would be warned by adults that if I didn't behave I would get a "dog's beating" or "chinga de perro" (in Spanish).  That term is also used when something is an overwhelming challenge. I had no idea how extremely difficult this song would be to play on drums (my main instrument) let alone on guitar and bass."

Progressive metallers BLACK SITES have an all new album coming out in the spring time titled "Exile". The band goes on to talk about this album and their future planning at the current time.

1. Let's start off with an icebreaker. If you could describe your band in 3 words, what would they be?

"Asshole, Jackoff, Scumbag."

2. What are your names and what do you do in the band?

We are: Mark Sugar (vocals/guitar), Ryan Bruchert (guitar), Garry Naples (drums) and José Salazar (bass).

3. You guys are a newer band so many people might know about your history. Would you be able to delve into it a little?

I got the idea to start this band in late 2015. I recruited some friends and ended up making an album called In Monochrome, which came out in 2017. After that, there were some lineup changes, health issues, and other behind-the-scenes happenings, leading up to the present day and the release of our new record Exile, which I'm pretty stoked about.

4. Where does the name Black Sites come from?

It was always there. Even when I started writing the very first songs for this project, I thought "this band's called Black Sites" for some reason. We live in Chicago, and the police here have been known to have actual black sites -- secret buildings where they would interrogate and torture people. That was in the news quite a bit at the time, so maybe that's what got me thinking of it. The Misery Index song of the same name may have been a factor as well.

5. Who are some of your influences?

Speaking for myself, the first people that come to mind are Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath), James Hetfield (Metallica), Piggy (Voivod), Doug Pinnick (King's X), Greg Edwards (Failure), and John Cobbett (Hammers Of Misfortune).

6. What are your songs about? (What specific themes do they cover?)

The subject matter is pretty all over the place -- some of it could be considered "personal" or introspective, but more of it is about the human condition in general (especially on our new album).

7. Do you write your own songs? (Discuss the songwriting process in detail.)

We do. The process goes a little like this:

1. Write songs
2. ???
3. Profit

In all seriousness, what usually happens is that I'll put together a demo version of a song at home, present it to the band, and we'll work on it together from there. Nothing too exciting, sorry.

8. What was the recording process like for this new album of yours?

Pretty laid-back. Other than the drums, the majority of it was recorded at my home studio, which meant that I got to sing and play guitar with nobody bothering me! We then sent it to the infamous Sanford Parker to mix, and his influence on the sound of this album was immeasurable.

9. Would you say that you have a favorite song off this album and which is it and why?

I have a different favorite song every week from this album. I think they're all good enough that it's impossible for me to choose a favorite.

10. Why should people go forth and check out this album?

There's a little something for everyone on it. And it'll only take 45 minutes of your time, so you don't really have anything to lose.

11. What would you say separates you from other bands in the scene?

I can confidently say that there is no band out there currently that sounds like us, for better or for worse.

12. How about this next year, what is in store from you guys?

We'll be doing some shows, and seeing what opportunities come our way as far as that goes. I'm always working on new material as well.

Solo artist Mike Fonseca known as Huelga will have his all new debut solo EP out this spring. His combination of heavy metal and instrumental music, will likely be a good fix for his styling, as he does all of the writing, guitar, bass, and drum work on this release, along with many other pieces of music that he has done, he himself goes into great discussion about all of this if not more so.

1. Let’s start off with an icebreaker. If you could describe your band in 3 words, what would they be?

Heavy Instrumental Math.

2. What are your names and what do you do in the band?

I am Mike Fonseca, and I do the writing, guitar, bass and drums.

3. You are a newer artist so many people might know about your history. Would you be able to delve into it a little?

Huelga is my first outing as a solo artist and it is also my first time in the Metal world. So far, I feel like I should have done this years ago.

4. Where does the name Huelga come from?

Huelga means "Strike" in Spanish. I fell in love with the name after I saw a photo of Dolores Huerta holding a sign that said Huelga during the Delano Grape Strike.

5. Who are some of your influences?

My influences on the Metal side are Meshuggah, Gorguts, The Big Four and Carnifex.  My influences as a composer would be Debussy, Frank Zappa, Charles Ives and Elliot Carter.

6. What are your songs about? (What specific themes do they cover?)

Mostly, I think what gives me inspiration to compose would be how minorities get scapegoated. Currently, the LatinX is under attack with all the talk of building a wall. My music expresses the anger that issues like that incite in me.

7. Do you write your own songs? (Discuss the songwriting process in detail.)

Yes, I do. The songs on this EP were written on piano because I wanted to write the music as though it was meant for a string quartet.  I later put it in MIDI with guitar sounds.  My first intention was to have someone learn and play these parts on guitar and bass but after a few tries I had to abandon that idea.  I bought a baritone guitar and started learning the parts I wrote. I currently have three guitars and a bass. Each guitar has an assigned role i.e. Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass.

8. What was the recording process like for this new EP of yours?

I had trouble securing a spot to record the drums. I started in the summer of 2017, but dates weren't lining up and I ended up finally recording the drums that winter around Christmas time. I started tracking guitars around January of 2018 and it took me until the end of the summer. Once I finished, I sent it to Mick Kenney of Annal Nathrakh for mixing and mastering.

9. Would you say that you have a favorite song off this album and which is it and why?

No Word for Blue part 1.  Somehow I came up with a melody that reminds me of a song that Bryn Terfel recorded called "Dunno a Heap About the What An'Why".

10. Why should people go forth and check out this album?

Huelga is all instrumentals which I think of as "Choose Your Own Adventure". Since there are no lyrics, the listener can insert any meaning they choose. It is heavy but melodic, experimental but catchy.

11. What would you say separates you from other bands in the scene?

I tend to gravitate towards heavier stuff like Deathcore and in that scene there are not a lot of one man bands that I know of.  My stuff is proggy and instrumental but not in a shreddy kind of way like most guitar-led projects out there.

12. How about this next year, what is in store from you?

I plan on writing a series of songs that I want to release in split 7 inches with other bands.

Formed in 2016, P V L S A R brings together a musical universe inspired by Dépêche Mode or M83 with a visual universe inspired by science fiction films. With great sensitivity and finesse, P V L S A R tells whoever will dream of it, a true visual and auditory fable.

The spectator is invited by a futuristic poetry in an ode to sensational humanity, imaged with the refined aesthetics of SF cinema. After "The Days We Remember", a first album hovering on stages such as Le Jardin du Michel and Les Inouïs Du Printemps de Bourges among others, the band is preparing its second album with its vaporous shades and eighties sounds: Get ready for the second trip...

They pay tribute to the 80's through a title that sounds generic manga, to the imagery of 80's ScFi/action movies, the cover of the single is created to pay tribute to those movie posters like Commando or Cobra and even approaches the manga/film Speed Racer. This heralds a whole new world for PVLSAR on the second album.

"This has a been a very long time coming, but we’re all elated to finally share with you our first single from 'Storm'. We have no shame in saying this album is by far our best/heaviest/fastest/bla bla bla, you’ve heard it all before, but sooner than later everyone is going to know why we feel this way. We’d like to send a huge thank you to Morgan Lander of Kittie for doing an amazing job on the chorus of this song, hopefully, she can make it out to a show or two to perform it with us."
