Metalcore/post-hardcore band Lungless was formed a few years back in 2014. Since then they have released their debut EP "Inhale" with a follow-up EP "Exhale" with another EP release soon after titled "The Love That Remains". Sometime later they would release yet another EP titled "Tired\\Eyes", this being their most newest source of content, with shows set up for this next year coming up. The band goes on to talk about themselves and their music!


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

Lungless is somewhat of a "super group" of local Toronto bands. It all started after our old band Constellations called it quits. Our singer at the time had left to pursue a career and the rest of us weren’t really read to call it quits. So Nick, Greg and Myself started writing and with in a couple months we had written and recorded our first EP Inhale. Curtis our drummer used to play in a band called Drag The Lake, a Toronto Deathcore band, he joined Lungless just over a year and a half ago.

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

The band name was actually Nick’s doing. He was texting someone and his phone auto correct a word to Lung Less and he immediately messaged our group and said "I’ve got the name… Lungless" and we kind of all agreed on it right then and there.

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

Lungless is based out of Toronto Ontario, Canada. Our music scene is really in a weird state at the moment. The local scene is actually at a low point in my eyes from the power house it was 5-7 years ago. The metalcore scene is on the rise again which is nice but locals only shows are generally not as popular as they used to be. There is some really solid acts from around the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) and those bands are: Cold Shoulder, Falsifer, Letdown, The Parallel, Throne to The Wolves, Words Like Wildfire, Certainty, The Northern and Perfect Limbs.

4. How would you describe your style?

Our style is a combination of metalcore, post-hardcore, Nickelback riffs and Budweiser.

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

We have released 4 EP's to date; Inhale, Exhale, The Love That Remains and our newest release ‘ t i r e d \\ E Y E S’ all of which are available on online on what ever streaming service you prefer. People can expect aggressive, dynamic and melodic music when they chose to listen to any off our records. We’ve always chose to wear our hearts on our sleeves when we write music and we encourage our listeners to find their own personal meanings in our songs!

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

We actually released a new record called "t i r e d \\ E Y E S" on November 23rd! It’s available off our website or on any major music streaming service.

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

We are just finishing a little release run of shows around Ontario and Quebec. We plan to do some more local tours in early 2019 and we will be heading back down into the states in May with our friends in Samara. We are also planning on going out to the east coast in Canada in the summer and then some U.S. dates as well.

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

We are hoping to just play as many shows as we can and enjoy this as much as we can. The more people that know who we are the better!

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

All our music is available online via Spotify, Apple music, Google play or any other major streaming service. You can purchase digital copies through iTunes or through our band camp. Physical copies of our music is available on our website (www.Lungless.com) or through our bandcamp.

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

Make your own meanings. We try to be as honest and upfront as we can with our music so we hope that you feel something and make your own interpretations of that.


"Let's Have A Rockin Christmas Vol. 3", by Various Artists is just the right release to come forth for this current time of year, that being Christmas of course! Just a mere couple of days away, this compilation of sorts, is just the right amount of content, with fresh takes of original pieces and some throwbacks as well. Like “Jingle Bells” by Doug Ferony or "All Around The World Christmas" by SEAY, if not other noted tracks like "Ode To Joy" by Les Fradkin and "Bells" by DocRock1007. With many other tracks as well "It's Christmas", by Doug Ferony and another by SEAY "A Christmas Heart", along with "Coming To Our Town", by Angeles and "Mary, Did You Know?" by Ann M. Wolf. All of these song selections being well grouped material that catches the essence and time of year and holiday spirit as well.

Each one is a lot like the timeless classics of years past. Being very upbeat, listenable and just a lot of fun that you will find each and every one of them, to be just as joyful and spirited with wholesomeness. Thus, the material just sounds very comforting, loving, and carefree. Upon hearing regularly all else, Christmas tunes are just a given thing when listening to music. It being not just the right timing for it, but the material is just filled with such meaning to it. You can familiarize yourself with the lyrical content along with the melodies of the music itself.

Take these array of tracks mentioned prior, each one being very different but still coming together as one, with the contents within. Each of which detailing the meaning behind the holiday and holidays in general. A lot of these tracks and album as a wholesome truths really, makes “Let’s Have A Rockin Christmas Vol. 3”, be a precise album that features an assortment of acts that each have variety yet class to.

Like for instance, it’s just the source material that makes it all enjoyable and fun. It becomes grounded that you feel it as a welcoming type of set-up. You get that comforting feeling again, hearing each and every one of these tracks said, or any of the rest upon it. Christmas is filled from all area’s that you just cannot get enough but plead for even more.

As a whole though, this album has much more going for it really. Not just being a compilation release but one that can be heard throughout that holiday time frame that is Christmas and the holidays in general, being one you can toss on and let it cool you over as you let it all in at once.

Duo twosome Katie and Caleigh who have been friends since long ago, decided that they would come together to create art in the form of music. Thus forth, the pop punk, progressive, alternative rock group called Tough On Fridays was made into what it was, exploding onto the music scene in only 2017. Releasing a few pieces of works, including most recent being a live album titled "Live at Texas Indie Fest". This album of sorts, consisting one of the singles that had made them take off called "Lush", with other likable tracks such as "Retrospect". Other notable tracks being noticed as crafty with well rounded material. But “Retrospect” and “Lush”, stand on a firmer grounding, that they are more pulsating, progressive in tone, that they keep the music kicking, that you never get tired of it. You partake in it, enjoying it, that you find yourself bobbing to the beat of the music more or less. When it comes down to it, the overall release may be short and brief, but that’s what makes it just as sweet. These girls in Tough On Fridays being rowdy with just the right amount of sass, make this album a whole lot more entertaining upon each listen.

New wave of Traditional American heavy metal band CORNERS OF SANCTUARY have guitarist Mick Michaels talk of the holidays for this time of year!


1. What are you doing for the holidays?

Mick Michaels: Like many people, I will be spending time with my family...enjoy each other's company, getting caught up and indulging in some great food. Food always seems to be the highlight. Food, family and fun... the perfect Holiday combination.

2. This Halloween season I did what?

MM: I watched a ton of fun Halloween movies with my family throughout October. We made a list and watched a movie each night… capping it off with “A Nightmare Before Christmas” on Halloween night.

3. Did you dress up this year?

MM: Absolutely! I dress up every year as a rock star... :)

4. What is your favorite Halloween candy or treat?

MM: Hands down it has to be the Baby Ruth bar. Snickers comes in as a close second.

5. What are you thankful for?

MM: Besides being alive and kicking, I am so grateful for my family. Their love and support is what keeps me going and has me believing anything is possible.

6. Do you have a favorite dish for Thanksgiving or do you enjoy everything?

MM: I'm definitely a sampler when it comes to Holiday meals... a little bit if this, some of that...to me it is part if the experience. But if I had the choice, I’d say go right to desserts.

7. Who's the one out of the band, that eats the most, when it comes to the holiday season?

MM: I would have to say Mad T can really eat like a champ… regardless whether or not it the Holiday season. He has a stomach of steel.

8. Do you or have you gone shopping on Black Friday, if so what did you find and buy? Or have you gone out to see the sights of the crowds?

MM: I am not a Black Friday guy at all… ever. I usually put up the tree and all the decorations on Black Friday. I like to avoid the crowds if I can. These days I’m an online shopper. One and done!

9. When it comes to the holiday season, does the band all get together, or does everyone do their own thing?

MM: The band does get together for a Holiday dinner. We exchange presents and all...it's a real good time. It's a chance for us to spend time together and not be music related. During the month of December, while we are out on the road, we try and take as many photos of Christmas trees as we can find in different places. It's fun and everyone gets into the spirit of things. It also makes the long drives interesting.

10. What is your favorite Christmas song to sing and why?

MM: I have always enjoyed "Holly, Jolly Christmas" by Burl Ives as well as "Jingle Bell Rock" by Bobby Helms. These songs just reflect the fun and purity of the season and I find them uplifting. Plus, I really dig the banjo in "Holly, Jolly Christmas".

11. One thing you really want for Christmas is what?

MM: To have a great time with my family. My family is my greatest gift. I can’t ask for anything more. But I can always use socks.

12. Do you still believe in Santa Claus? Enough so, that you would pay him a visit at the mall or other local events?

MM: Absolutely do! Santa is cool and he represents the magic of the season. If we stop believing in the magic all could be lost. And yes…I have been known to swing by a mall or two and have a photo taken with the big man.

13. What type of Christmas tree do you prefer white or green or your own version?

MM: I'm a traditionalist...go green!

14. Are you a late or early Christmas shopper?

MM: Early… The sooner the better. This allows me time to actually enjoy the Holiday happenings.

15. One thing you have to do on New Year's Eve?

MM: Eat sushi!

16. Do you have any New Year's resolutions?

MM: Not really resolutions, more like goal settings. Each year I write a list of things I want to accomplish for the coming year.  I put them on paper with the best intentions. Committing them to paper is my way of letting the Universe know what my hopes are. On New Year's Day the following year I look at that list and go through what was accomplished. Of course there are always things that didn't get done. But what surprises me most are the things that get done that you didn't expect. That is always exciting. That’s the magic of life.

Punk rock act TV COMA have a simple saying "TV Coma are just like you!" With that said, the band goes into discussion about themselves, music, and their plans ahead.


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

The history of the band is somewhat simple, yet thoroughly complex, something organic in to its core, yet, inherently man-made. One supposes that the band’s infancy was born through the infancy of its two truly fraternal members, though the fraternity of bandsman-ship is often as true as any made of skin and bone. To conceptualized this ‘band’ as such is, to put it lightly, pedestrian at best, this ensemble of troubadours, of flames, of mutual inspirations would always find one another in the gloom that makes up this post-millennial world.

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

The origin of appellation this artistic cooperative lies in the joining of its two halves, in the wholly artificial construction of the television, first demonstrated in the invention of John Logie Baird, but also the terrible sleep of the coma, which for centuries could have meant all but certain death to the individuals that fell to the condition.

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 music of this troupe transcends a locale or specific geography resonating perfectly with a generation, un so very special, and many that shall come after. If pressed, our scene is the street, the coffee house, the art gallery, the local swimming pool. It is Nelsons Column, it is the Cutty Sark, it is the multi-story car park at The Corn Exchange. It is the local comprehensive school, it is the bins round the back of Tesco.

4. How would you describe your style?

Fashions come and go, but the way in which we present ourselves and our passion can only be truly appreciated in the flesh. From the array of instruments we dance with, to the fabrics that select us for our meticulously kept garments, to dove-hole our ‘style’ would be too crass.

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

Our works aren’t so much released by us, than we are released to the world via our fastidious works. Of late, they have been two arrangements, one "I don’t much care for Association Football", and one entitled simply "Trudy".

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

Music shall always be new to those who hear it for the first time.

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

We’re always on tour, we’re always home, as each new venue and old we perform in becomes as a second home to us – to enlist the gentle assistance of a few lines of the poet Keith Buckley, "everywhere we go we’re the local boys and we’re back in town."

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

When one gets to a certain age, one cannot place too great an expectation upon anything. Seasons come and go, and the only inevitability is the low lope towards the next world. Love, and be good to one another is all that can be expected.

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

Have you tried the internet? We’ve heard rather good things about it as a tool for collaboration, discovering new music and the consumption of hefty quantities of pornography.

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

TV Coma are just like you.

French symphonic power metal band Gates Of Paris have released their debut self-titled album. The album was recorded in "StudioArtMusic Studio" and mixed/mastered by Damien Rainaud (ONCE HUMAN).


Check out the album here: https://gatesofparis.bandcamp.com/releases.

Gates Of Paris was formed in 2016 by ex-Kerion guitarist Remch Carrayrou at Nice, France. Soon after Raphael Dantas (vocal), Damien Rainaud (drums) and Steph Papasergio (bass) jopined the band, and the lineup was complete.


Fabp aka Fabpz the Freelancer has released an all new EP  titled "Classical Rap @ TheRealFabp". Twelve tracks that bring out a more creative side of the hip hop/rapper. Take such tracks as “Gal Ah Nike”, “Yes She Bouncing”, “Dealing With A Clown”, and “Rock Rock On” for instance. These array of tracks, have a uniqueness towards them. Each one being different but slightly similar in sound and set-up. The melodies are rough on the edges, whilst the vocalization is provided in a type of tone, that twists the abilities, with the effects done within them. You can understand them but they are tweaked out that other affects are thrown in to make them sound distorted. It makes the material more rounded and in term’s of styling goes, a tad more creative as well. The rest of the works off this EP “Classical Rap @ TheRealFabp”, is a lot of the same type of styling, having differences ever so slightly, that make it still unique and rather upbeat. It’s how the material works its ways around the music that is playing forth. You get works, that sound just easy going but very catching and upbeat as said prior. Fabp aka Fabpz the Freelancer is an artist of his kind with a persistence with releasing content ever so often, that with each release, the works upon it sound slightly better with said assortment of material works.


Swedish melodic death metal band Corrosive released their new single "Angry Me". The single was recorded at "Dark City Sound Records", mixed by Erik Berglund and mastered by Kenny Boufadene in "Meltdown Studio".

Check out the track here: https://soundcloud.com/corrosive-sweden/corrosive-sweden-angry-me-original-2018.

Corrosive was formed in 1997 by Johan Bengtsson at Iggesund (Sweden) and have since then released a number of recordings and have mainly played at clubs and festivals in Sweden with bands like The Hellacopters, Amaranthe, Engel, Dead By April, Corroded, Freedom Call and many more.


Russian symphonic metal band Dreamsense have released their new single "Glasswall". The single was recorded in "Chaika Studio" and mixed/mastered at MxD Recordings (Berlin). Check it out here: https://soundcloud.com/dreamsense_band/glasswall.

Dreamsense  was formed in 2012 at Moscow by the tenor vocalist George Ognev. In 2015 the band released their first demo "Feel Alive" and played shows in Russia with bands like Eluveitie, Witchcraft and Fiend. This days the band is working on their debut full-length album, that will be released in 2019.


For the past 12 years, Voodoo Zombie has come quite the ways, in term's of showcases and releasing an array of content, including their most recent and newest album to date "Reviresco", the fourth in their assorted discography. "Amarte Es Peligroso", was the first glimpse into how much the band has come since their previous and third full-length "Santa Muerte" was released back in 2011, with a short follow-up single afterwards in 2012 with single track titled "ZombieWalk". It wouldn't be until 5 years later that any newer content would come around, which would bring us back to that single of a track titled "Amarte Es Peligroso".

"Amarte Es Peligroso", is a toss up between sounding plugged in but unplugged as well, if that makes any sense. It’s sounding a lot like No Doubt but without the ska punk tone. More of an uplifting effect, combining rock and more psychobilly essence; that would come out of an era of when the genre that is the one they have picked on, psychobilly and rock even began.

To point it simply, Voodoo Zombies’ tone is straight forward as rock mixed with punk with some edginess added in for good measurements. Take other tracks off this album such as "La Cara Oculta de la Luna ", "Existencia Infernal", "Esquizomortal", and "Zombiewalk", that was mentioned prior and released as a single that would accompany this release as it turns out. These selections have that same type or tone, being edgy yet intense, whilst being very upbeat and catching for the ears listening in. You get this mellow undertone that keeps the material consistent yet refreshing with each play through.

It’s as if, Voodoo Zombie’s entirety as a band, is more rounded, being not just a successful act as they have become, but one who will continue to grow and expand upon their artistic works and performance skills as well. These tracks and fourth full-length album to date "Reviresco", demonstrates this, igniting more to come in no time at all.
