In celebration of two anniversaries, one being the ten years since California locals Black Veil Brides went on tour, in promotion of their debut album “We Stitch These Wounds”, as well as another anniversary celebration of said debut album itself. This causing the band to go even further to do a re-recorded version of the entire debut album, and to celebrate some more, they would go on to do their first ever virtual concert performance. Performing where that promotional tour was held tn years ago, the famous Whiskey A Go Go in Hollywood, California!

The virtual concert would be held in the afternoon 2PM PST time, streamed live all over the world via the Veeps website, tickets costing only $10, with one other offering costing $50 with the addition of a t-shirt added to the ticket pricing. Whichever method chosen though, the band would go live on the air, a little after 2PM, performing for the first time in it’s entirety their debut album “We Stitch These Wounds”.

Consisting of 12-tracks, all of which were performed from front to back except for one track titled “The Mortician's Daughter”, which was performed live via violin solo. Minus this little mishap, the entire performance ran for a good 50 minutes from start to finish. The venue being emptied as an echo was rung out throughout, you could hear the vocalization and instrumentation rather nicely this way, without the cries and cheers from roaring fans. It made the performance just more gripping and entertaining.




Andy Biersack or known previously during the debut album days as Andy Six, did a superb job providing harmony and vocalizing during said performance. The “screams” sung on the selection of tracks given, sounded fierce yet intense at times, making the band’s newer material sound just a tad disappointing, that he doesn’t supply his vocal screams more often. He is clearly capable of doing so, perhaps on future content, screams will make a come back?



Drumming, bass, and guitar work was done nicely, heavily intense yet visual and loud throughout. Each of the 12-tracks just gave off a very satisfied listening experience. Having Andy acknowledge the audience watching the live cast, thanking them on and off from numerous songs sung. Lighting was done nicely too, making the exposure that more enjoyable to witness really.

All in all though, the band did a nice job, had a good set, with a little throw back that made fans from the start, middle, and end of their career’s as musicians, very well pleased indeed. To those who bought tickets, if the Veep’s page is refreshed you are permitted to re-watch the entire performance, for how long no precise telling yet. But perhaps this live broadcast will receive a DVD release or permanent placement on YouTube or one of BVB’s outlets at another cost or free for all, only time will tell once the veil arises.

Slovakian Heavy Metal band OzNor released their new single "Rouse" from the upcoming new album. The single was recorded, produced, engineered and mixed by Norbert Ozogany at "Oznor Studio". Check out the track below;


https://oznor.bandcamp.com/track/rouse

OzNor was formed in 2019 in Samorin, Slovakia by Norbert Ozogany as a one-man instrumental studio project. The band released their debut album "Stormbringer" in 2019 and now work on the second album that will be released in 2020.


Hard rockers THE JAILBIRDS have a couple of EP releases out there, along with some single's too. Writing and recording is always an occurrence, with them wanting to play live shows as soon as possible! However the band goes into chat about the current situation, besides their music of course.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Our band was created when Liam (bass) and Myke (vocals/guitar) were rearranging the group. We had been playing together for a few years under another name, and when the sound started to change (from more modern heavy metal to more of a classic rock/grungy rock vibe) we ultimately decided to change the name as well. During that process, the band lost members, but we quickly sought out a new drummer and keyboard player. We found Eric on an online ad, as well as a keys player, and in the beginning stages of rehearsing for our debut, we lost our keyboard player and 2nd guitarist. We moved on as a 3 piece band from that moment, and went in to record our debut EP (The Black River) and have been this way ever since!

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Liam was dreaming one night, of the 3 of us in the wild west, during the 1800’s. He pictured us robbing a train, red dead redemption kind of vibe (a favorite game of ours). When we were thrown in jail, he saw a sheriff walk by and mention to the guard, “there’s The Jailbirds right there” and he woke up! wrote it down in his notebook, and circled it 5 or 6 times. The next day he sent us the idea for our band name, and we loved it.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We are based out of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. Our music scene is strong with a lot of awesome rock n roll bands, bands of any genre for that matter, and in our little circle we all have our own things going on in terms of style and sound, and it’s a wonder to be a part of. There’s a lot of love and support with our friends’ bands an us, and it really does create a better music scene for everyone when people work together. Definitely recommend checking out Crown Lands, Revive The Rose, Drop Top Alibi, Excuses Excuses, Double Experience, Roadwolves, there’s so many wicked bands from southern ON! Follow any of them on Spotify and you’ll be able to find every band in our scene via the “fans also listen to” section.

4. How would you describe your style?

Our style is a mix of inspiration from a lot of different rock eras. We are fans of a lot of different types of music, not just rock, and that plays a huge part in our style and sound. I would describe the sound as grunge meets classic rock meets 70’s/80’s hard rock. We also like funk, blues, soul, new wave, lots of stuff like that.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

So far, we have released one EP (The Black River) and one single (Watery Grave) from our forthcoming EP. Our next single from that record will be released August 3rd, called Dull My Brain.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We are always writing and recording new music/ideas. Lets just say we have the next few records in the works at all times, it’s just a matter of releasing it the way we want to.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Right now with Covid-19, our shows have been mostly cancelled. However, we will be playing a social-distance outdoor festival near Kingston, ON on Sept 12th! We hope to get back on the road soon, when it is safe to do so. We live for playing shows!!

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

We plan on making as much music as possible, playing as many shows as we can and in as many regions as we can! We have another 6 songs banked (recorded and all) for later, excluding our upcoming release of 5 tracks. Very excited to start releasing more music!

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can find all of our links on our website at: www.thejailbirds.com. Find us on Spotify and Apple Music, and we will have our merch store on our website in August 2020.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Remember to CRANK IT TO 11! =)


High energetic rock band RANDOM TIES just formed in 2019, but since then they have been known for their dynamic sound with such a message, it's been spread far and wide.The band has released an EP, music videos, and have a new single with video expected really soon as well. Just what else the band had to say, expresses a lot about themselves and the music.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Random Ties is the dream I put on hold for many years. We came together in the summer of 2019, which was the year my wife & new born at the time moved to the US from Beirut. I didn’t know anyone in Detroit so I started going to open mics & meeting other musicians which this is where I met KD who plays the drums thunderously bringing that heavy hitting power with amazing fills & breaks, Thew whose on the second guitar, compliments my playing with his fills that are all over our EP & Steven originally from Nirvana’s hometown brought a grunginess to the album with some great baselines.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

I was thinking about this new journey I embarked on moving to the US & thought how Randomly the band met yet we are tied together by creating music thus the name Random Ties

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We have a saying in Detroit” Local is the new National”  the music scene is healthy & full of very talented bands like  “Heart of Jordan”  Metal genre or if you are into Rock n Roll check out Two Faced Wilson to name a few.

4. How would you describe your style?

We are a high energy, feel good Alternative rock band, known for our dynamic sound, contrasting between quiet verses with loud heavy choruses topped with an honest message

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

It’s been a very busy last couple of months for Random Ties, we just released our EP "Believe" consisting of 6 songs streaming on all platforms.  It’s a personal release because we touch on subjects such as losing a loved one, difficulties in starting a family, struggling with faith & moving on.  We also shot two music videos this year “She’s Something” & just recently “Week 39” both available on our YouTube channel. 

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

The creative juices are flowing with all that’s going on globally, we have a new single “Thawra” coming out sometime in August with a video.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Things were very unpredictable this summer due to the pandemic yet we remained active playing gigs, we decided that we would stay close to home as some gigs were subject to cancellation with no notice & would have been tough for us to swallow in the middle of a tour. We have a few shows left this summer, August 6th  at the Goose Lake Jamboree festival & on the 8th at the Corunna bar in Flint.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Our goal is to remain consistent by providing quality music to our audience, no one knows what the future of live shows will look like so we have to think of other ways to keep our fans engaged & our biggest goal is to reach a wider audience geographically so a big thanks to you for giving us this interview & a voice.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can stream Random Ties on all platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes or band camp & if you’d like to stay updated with our latest news our Instagram or Facebook page is the place to go.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Our songs put a spot light on daily struggles we all go through carrying our scars proudly & celebrating who we are. 

We want them to feel empowered after listening to our songs & something they can dance to & to remember the sun always shine if you hang in there long enough.


Since 2014 the HORROR DANCE SQUAD have been playing hard and even writing and recording harder than before. They are in fact having an all new album underway! Lots of plans are in the works, aside from the album, along with some music videos and much more. The band goes into discussion some more about this album, and just what else they have in-store.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Horror Dance Squad hails from Estonia’s capital, Tallinn. The squad began taking formation when guitarists Indrek Ulp and Mikk Peetrimägi put their eagerness to keep the metalcore genre alive in Estonia together and began writing songs. They took on drummer Henri Kuusk and after about a year of practicing and trying out vocalists (including Ian Karell who is originally from Pittsburgh, PA) the first line-up was established. We played our first show at the beginning of 2014. After a couple of years, we made a small line-up change adding vocalist Karl Mesipuu and synth and sample wizard Margus Tammela to our squad. This new line-up took us on a path that has definitively shaped and evolved our music into our own signature style. Throughout our years together we have had the enormous pleasure of sharing the stage with international heavy hitters such as Siamese, Comeback Kid, Dead By April, Adept, Eskimo Callboy, We Butter The Bread With Butter, Deez Nuts, August Burns Red, One Morning Left and may others. We also represented Estonia at the 2016 Wacken Open Air Metal Battle.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

When we formed the band, we knew we wanted to make heavy music, but we wanted to go in a different direction than the “doom and gloom” most people think of when they think about this genre. And, of course, with any good band name, we wanted something that really represented the core of the band and us as individuals: Horror for the heavy influence, Dance to highlight the more fun and positive angle we wanted to approach our music with, and Squad to represent the unity we feel as a band, including the unity we feel with our fans and the many awesome people we’ve had the pleasure to work with while creating and sharing our music.

\3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Estonia is a country with a metal influence for sure, especially with our cousins to the north, but which is maybe more known for its folk roots. Examples such as folk-rock group Trad.Attack! and folk-metal group Metsatöll have enjoyed major successes here. But the modern-metal scene is definitely on the rise here as well. People come to the shows, there are a lot of new bands and many who have been rocking it for over ten years. The audience has also seemed to warm up a bit here--the kids mosh, stage-dive and crowd-surf like never before! Before the pandemic, there was a steady stream of great concerts. And once the restrictions were lifted, the shows picked right back up. As for local bands, we recommend checking out ÆØNS and LOWFUTURE from the heavier side and there’s also a cool 90s-vibe, hardcore band called Pinkwave.

4. How would you describe your style?

A mixture of metalcore, electrocore, nu-metal and punk. Nucore doused with electronics. Catchy melodies and brutal breakdowns.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We released a couple of singles before putting out the Gamechanger EP in 2016 and the album LEAP in 2017.  Since then, we have been working energetically on our upcoming album and have begun releasing our newest singles since February. We have evolved over the years, as any band does, but our fans expect our music to be heavy, bouncy and energetic with catchy choruses and in-your-face vocals all round. 

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Yes! In fact, we have a whole new album on the way! We have already released four singles to date and are preparing the release of our new LP "No Flag Will Fly Forever", which comes out on the 25th of September. You can pre-order it already from here: https://www.hooandja.ee/en/projekt/horror-dance-squad.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Due to COVID 19 we had to postpone a bunch of great shows. We made up for it by hosting our first web-concert in March which was an exciting experience for us (you can check it from YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bo08f2oy_40). As restrictions lifted here in Estonia, we have also had the chance to play at two Estonian summer festivals (Punk and Rock, Tartu; Käbliku Beer Camp and Rock’n’Roll, Käbliku Talu) which was an absolute blast. We are also working hard to make sure our album release show is our most intense and inspired one yet, so that’s keeping us all busy. In the long term, we, like most artists these days, simply hope we can get out on the road in 2021 to tour our new album.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

The major plan, of course, is our album release in September. We’ve got a couple of music videos in the works as well and more to plan before the end of the year. Overall, we plan to be doing this as long as we can and we believe our first LP is just one step in what will hopefully be a long journey together.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can hear us on all major streaming platforms and we’ve got plenty of videos on YouTube. We also have an online store on our website www.horrordancesquad.com. And! We are currently running a crowdfunding campaign on Hooandja where you can support us in printing our upcoming album on vinyl and get some very sweet merch as a reward. And, of course, make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to get the latest news.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

We hope that it makes people as pumped-up and energized as it does us. We also put a lot of time into the meanings of our songs, so we also hope you become familiar enough with the lyrics to sing along with us the second time around!



 Progressive metal project LUNAR out of California, began sometime ago, where the band would go on to release content over the years, currently hard at work what will be their third full-length release expected in 2021. That is all the band is focused upon for the time being, with the band going on further more to say lots about how they came to be and what it's been like creating the music that they do.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The band started back in 2013 when it was just myself (Alex Bosson) and guitarist Ryan Erwin.  We searched for other members at the time, but didn’t have much luck.  We did our first EP, “Provenance,” in 2014.  We had recruited my old friend Danny Stevenson to play keyboards on that EP, but couldn’t find any other members, so Ryan handled lead vocals and he and I split doing the bass tracks on that EP.  After that we were able to bring on Ryan Price on bass and Chandler Mogel on vocals for the first full-length album, “Theogony,” and then rounded out the album with a bunch of guest musicians as well.  After “Theogony” came out, Ryan (Erwin) unfortunately passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly.  The 2nd (and most recent) album, “Eidolon,” I wrote on my own and brought in Balmore Lemus to fulfil the task of recording guitars.  And with him we took kind of the same approach as with “Theogony” where we had Ryan Price on bass, Chandler Mogel on lead vocals and then lots of guest musicians rounding out the line-up.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

The story of the band name is kind of a silly one.  Ryan and I have always been big fans of Opeth and they’re a big inspiration to Lunar.  So when trying to think of a band name, my mind went to thinking about Opeth and wondering how I could come up with a name as cool as theirs.  I had read something years ago where Mikael Akerfeldt mentioned that Opeth was supposed to be the name of a city on the moon.  I remembered that, made me think of the moon and then thought ‘what are some cool moon-like terms.’  I thought of Lunar and I liked it, so it stuck.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

The band is kind of spread all around, but I’ve always thought of home-base as where I am; in Sacramento, CA.  But the other members are located in Santa Cruz, Los Angeles and New Jersey.  So each member could really have a very different answer about their local music scene.  For me, here in Sacramento, it’s not the greatest, but it is improving.  In recent years, more tours seem to be opting for coming through Sacramento instead of going to the Bay Area, which is nice.  There are a few cool clubs and venues here.  I recently got to see SONS OF APOLLO at a local theatre, which was very cool! 

And there are definitely a lot of friends and acquaintances of mine that play in great bands.  Many of them, like how we are with Lunar, are spread out but may have one or two members in this area.  But just for a quick list of bands that have at least one member in this area that I would recommend, there’s ALTERBEAST, some old friends of mine in a band called BAVMORDA, who are awesome. Jared Klein is from around here and plays for RIVERS OF NIHIL and FLUB, both of which are fantastic!  Brian Lewis, who does all the growl vocals on the Lunar albums, has a black metal project called NORDIC FROST, which is great.  NIVIANE, DIRE PERIL, CYBORG OCTOPUS, GRAVESHADOW are a few others of friends bands based around here that are all fantastic!

4. How would you describe your style?

Our style I think is certainly progressive metal.  I think that genre has a pretty wide scope.  I think you can hear influences of rock, metal, jazz, death metal and probably some other stuff too.  The biggest thing about our style /sound is just having no limitations.  We play stuff that we enjoy from many different influences and just let the music progress in a natural way.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

As of now, we have 2 full-length albums and an EP out.  The first EP (“Provenance”) is still available in digital format, but the physical CD’s are long sold-out.  The 2 full-length albums are available digitally, there are physical CD’s, limited edition colored cassette tapes and “Theogony” is also available on vinyl.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Yes, we are currently in the process of writing and recording the 3rd full-length album.  It’s still fairly early in the process, but it’s coming along nicely.  It should hopefully be released sometime in 2021.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Due to this band being so spread out and very independent, we haven’t had the chance to do any live shows or tours yet.  It’s definitely something we hope to do in the future… We just have to wait for the right time when we can make it happen.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Right now the plans are just focusing on the 3rd album.  We’re currently working hard on that.  From there we’ll have to see where things go.  We would love it if we can make it work to tour and support that album once it’s out.  We’ll have to wait and see what the public response is to it and see if it’s feasible to try to make that happen.  Also we’ll have to see how things continue to progress with the state of the world and the music industry with COVID.  Things are pretty up in the air with the whole industry right now with that, so for now, the focus is just to get this 3rd album done and released and hopefully make it the best Lunar album so far!

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Music should be available on all the major platforms; Spotify, Pandora, YouTube, apple music, etc.  And you can also hear the music and purchase any music and merch at lunarbandofficial.bandcamp.com.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

I wouldn’t presume to tell a listener how to approach new music as I think everyone has their own approach to how they like to absorb new material.  I guess I would just say to have an open mind.  There’s a lot of different influences and styles, some of which can change drastically even from song to song.  So I think if the listener has an open mind and gives it a thorough listen, they can hopefully find something they’ll enjoy.


The band REVENGIN has just released a new lyric video for the new song "White Lies", which will be present on their new album, scheduled to be released this year 2020.

Loyal fanbase funds Angelspit's 2020 album "THE IGNORANCE CARTEL" in under 4 hours.

Angelspit's 9th album 'The Ignorance Cartel' is due for release in Fall 2020 and is available for pre-order on Kickstarter now! Fans and followers of Angelspit swamped the Kickstarter and funded the album in under 4 hours - largely due to an R Rated VHS Tape with content that will never be seen online.

The 14 track album is faster and heavier than previous releases. Containing distorted driving beats, earthquake inducing bass, brash lyrics, aggressive guitars and abrasive synths collide to create a monster unfit for our times.

En Tze and Zoog Von Rock team up to make artwork steeped in ancient mysticism and data-glitched symbolism. Featuring guest vocals from Brian Graupner (Gasoline Invertebrate) and Melody (Queen of the Static Opera).

Written in LA in the 12 months leading up to the Covid outbreak and produced during the turmoil of the worldwide pandemic lockdown. The album’s central concept is driven by the rise of Authoritarianism and the subtle mind-control of AI algorithms dictating what we see.

As usual, Angelspit has opted for unique merch items - including the uncensored VHS Tape and a Spiked Mask. Check all of the goods at the album's Kickstarter HERE.
