Up and comer LIL X DREAMER has been actively creating music since he was a kid. But over time, he has grown up and gone on to release a few single's, with new music in the works right now! No shows or touring just yet but it is in the pipeline for now and will happen someday. But now Lil X Dreamer himself discusses his time creating music and where it plans to go from here on out.


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

Well I've always been making music ever since I was a kid, but it was never really serious. There was one night I just felt in the mood to write music so I wrote my song titled "Alone". I literally recorded it that night and just had to sitting on my phone for like 6 months, and never really showed anybody. Well one day I ended up showing it to this girl I was talking to at the time. She told me that she loved it and that it was a shame that I hadn't produced it and that the world couldn't hear it, told me I should get serious about my music, so that's what I did. I think I ended up recording it with a professional mic and releasing it on soundcloud within like 3 days, and now it's streaming on all major platforms! Eventually I ended up writing more music, and more recently described to start taking it seriously haha. In the end I've always loved music and it's always been a passion of mine.

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

The name "lil X Dreamer" is actually a reference to my state of mind. There's a little bit of a story behind it. I used to run my own blog/music promotion service and the first band I ever interviewed was a group called "Attention Anyone" who I'm still friends with to this day. I actually got one of their lyrics tattooed on my arm, and it goes "we've all got dreams but I'm a dreamer". The quote always hit hard with me. I got the tattoo not only to remind me of my past accomplishments, but also to remind myself that I'm not someone who just has fantasies and forgets about them. I'm driven to chasing my dreams and making them happen. 

To me being a dreamer not only means having dreams, but being driven and chasing your dreams, not losing hope in the things you believe in, no matter how dark things get. Staying strong and pushing forward until you watch your dreams become reality.

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

Actually from Putnam county Florida, and sadly there's not much of a music scene out here. I've built a little bit of a scene within my friends group, it actually I'm planning to do a few projects with my best friend, Chris!

Unfortunately none of the artists I know locally have anything released yet, but I'll keep you updated!

4. How would you describe your style?

Now that's an interesting question! I honestly have no idea haha!

I was inspired by a lot of rock bands like Linkin Park, 3 Days Grace, Bring Me The Horizon, Asking Alexandria, and a bunch of other bands like that.

But I've also got a lot of inspiration from artists like Machine Gun Kelly, or Lil Peep, Juice Wrld and XXXTENTACION.

My style kind of blends the two worlds, there's rapping there's screaming there's singing, but no matter what style I use it always captures the same emotion. The biggest review I've heard from my music about it flatters me is that people listen to it and they feel something. Which as an artist is the best thing I can really ask for. I guess that's honestly the goal of my music, is to capture my emotions with sound, and to give other people a glimpse into my world.

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

I've got three singles out right now, 'Alone', 'Send Help',  and 'Dreamer Lost'. As to what you can expect, every song I've done has been a different style, I might scream, I might rap, I might even sing. The only thing you can really expect is that whatever I do, it's gonna come from the heart. 

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

Actually I do I have about six songs in the works right now! I'm planning on releasing three of them later this month, so definitely keep your ear out for new music, and follow me on Facebook or subscribe to my channels if you want to get updated on new releases!

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

It's a dream of mine, and like I said earlier and then a few I always chase my dreams so it'll happen eventually. As for dates and everything I don't really have anything set up right now. But don't worry we'll get there!

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

Honestly, just keep chasing my dreams, following what I believe and pushing myself further every step of the way. 

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

I've got all my links on linktree! https://linktr.ee/Lil_X_Dreamer.

My music is currently available for purchase on Bandcamp and you can listen to it on all major platforms!

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

That their not alone!


Different influences brought upon such band members has created a styling to LE IENE's liking. Some would say it as ska-punk while others say is a mix of this and that. With that said, an EP and album was released with a follow-up piece of a single track out this past summer time. The band talks of this content and much else below.


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

Le IENE was born in 2015 amidst the meanders of Ferrara's fog, from the meeting of four bold young men, each with their own musical experiences and projects behind them: Mastro on guitar, Eugi on bass, Giù on sax and Med on drums. The decision to compose all together in the living room allows the band to develop its own sound, the result of different musical influences, ranging from Punk to Metal, from Funk to Ska, up to Reggae and sounds typical of the Latin American and Balkan musical tradition. In 2017 the first EP "Fai la tua mossa" was produced, allowing IENE to broaden their horizons towards a European dimension, with the first concerts outside the Italian borders. In 2019, the pack expands with the entry of Vare on trumpet and together with Giù goes to make up the band's wind section. The album 'Immaginazione' is released, where the songs maintain the influences and sounds developed in the first EP, but moving towards a decidedly more aggressive style. The Immaginazione tour sees Le IENE play in Italy, Germany, Switzerland and Austria, passing through cities such as Milan, Munich and Vienna, Berlin, Hamburg and Cologne. The damned COVID-19 determines a setback in the path taken up to that point by the five beasts, without however preventing them from continuing to play and work on the composition of their next songs, anticipated by the release of the track 'Dolce Libertà' in August 2022.

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

With the choice of the name 'Le IENE' (Italian for 'The Hyenas') we wanted to accentuate the meaning related to the concept of 'herd', a dimension where each component is an integral part, where the whole is never the simple sum of the parts, but at the same time each part is essential for the composition of the whole. As components, in fact, we consider ourselves to be five people who are characteristically very different from each other: getting along is often not easy, but everyone can always count on the certainty of not being excluded or left alone, precisely because the herd will always be there, even during the ups and downs of each one. The choice of the animal, the hyena, is due to its goliardic aspect connected to the famous laugh: essentially because we are nothing but five assholes. Moreover, the herds of this animal, which are generally numerous, remind us of all the loved ones we have met along the roads we have travelled in the van, people who are far away but whose affection we retain and who have become part of our great loving asshole herd.

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 headquarters of the band, or as we prefer to call our Tortuga, is located in Ferrara, a foggy city in the north-east of Italy. The city boasts a discrete underground music scene, relating to various musical genres: historical groups such as 'Strike' as regards Ska, or 'Game Over' as regards Heavy Metal, have achieved excellent results and goals throughout their history, playing in Italy and abroad on decidedly enviable stages. In addition to this, there is also a considerable buzz from the young and very young, with an appreciable number of solo artists and bands always willing to bring music and light-heartedness to the city, providing magnificent evenings. While we regret past years when the opportunities to experience live music were far greater, we still cannot complain.

4. How would you describe your style?

Certainly, if we were to label ourselves, our style would still remain in the Ska-Punk vein, but in the composition of our pieces we always feel that we must bring together the different influences and personal tastes of which each member is the bearer, in the light of their different personal histories and previous experiences: from those who have played in heavy metal bands, to others who have had direct contact with musical traditions outside the continent, to those who have had no direct musical experience but have had their musical influences through dancing and performing; everyone tries to bring their own contribution to the creation of a Ska-Punk style that is however original and bears the "IENE" signature.

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

 In 2017, the original four-member line-up gave birth to the first EP 'Fai la tua mossa', which allowed IENE to broaden their horizons towards a European dimension, with their first concerts outside the Italian borders. In 2019, the album 'Immaginazione' is released, where the tracks maintain the influences and sounds developed in the first EP, but moving towards a decidedly more aggressive style. The damned COVID-19 determines a setback in the path taken up to then by the five beasts, without however preventing them from continuing to play and work on the composition of the next tracks, anticipated by the release of the track "Dolce Libertà" in August 2022; from the works in the pipeline that are being released, one can see the band's desire to further develop the sounds modelled to date, with tracks that are markedly heterogeneous from one another.

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

We are working on a second single that we would like to release with the new year, followed by an ep/album for spring 2023 to be promoted during next year's summer festivals.

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

We've been working since 2018 with Elisa from Kob Records for the concerts issue both in Italy and abroad (Germany, Switzerland, Austria etc.) and for now we have a few concerts until the end of the year and we're already getting ready for spring and summer 2023. For possible booking: kobrecords@yahoo.it.

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

As we have repeated in other replies, the COVID-19 setback was a resounding slap in the face for everyone, which also forced everyone to reschedule individual commitments and life plans. The uncertainty that has characterized the world of music for the past two years has forced each of us to be unable to afford to continue on the highly structured path that we had set ourselves as a band. We are therefore going back to playing because we can't be without it, but as of today we do so without pretense: we simply aim to live each stage giving our all and hoping to be appreciated by as many people as possible who have the chance and desire to see and hear us.

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

All our tracks are available on Spotify and YouTube (on the latter you can also see our official videos of the singles we have released over the years), we also have Facebook and Instagram pages to get to know us better as a band and follow our adventures. Also via Facebook and Instagram, where you will find a shop section where we present the merchandise available, you will be able to contact us and we will reply directly to you if you are interested in the material (albums, EPs, vinyls, t-shirts, various merchandise...), with the possibility of having it sent directly to your home. For any curiosity about the band we invite you to consult this link https://linktr.ee/LE_IENE.

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

We would like you to feel involved and represented in some way, partly by the words of the lyrics (which is not always possible as we sing in Italian and play a lot abroad) and partly by the sounds of the riffs and songs. We would also like a listener to remember how cool the trumpet player is.


Crafty musicians known only as LEAF have a couple of EP's and hope to play not just local shows but bigger shows if not touring is in mind, with wanting everyone to hear what and how good these guys sound really. The band talks of all of this plus much else below.


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

Wow, the band's initial incarnation was in 1992. God, we were beautiful, but flawed like any bunch of talented but lunatic teenagers. We had talent scouts wanting us to be the ‘new Pearl Jam’, we had the grotty, scuz of the grunge era married to the tunes that would take us further. However, the usual lures caused internal friction, Colin went and tried out for the Wildhearts and that was the final straw. Roll on nearly 30 years after all of us having experiences both professional and not so, in the music biz (BBC Dick and Dom, Goya and Electus). Dan joined and gave a solid foundation and Mark rejoined after the original drummer couldn’t commit and magic started to happen again.  We are mature now, all the rubbish is behind us in the past and the songs are raw, real and mean something - we have an awful lot of life between us and we are going to tell you all about it!

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

Really? It is somewhat embarrassing; the almighty bastions of British metal, Sabbath and a crap, teenage imagination. We used to play Sweet Leaf as an encore. We have moved on, but with a nod to the past we have kept the name, even though only a  handful of tunes have survived the brutal writing and culling process. With a nod to the pretenders to the name we have added UK to the end to avoid any shenanigans, even though we were there first.

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 hail from Stoke-on-Trent, although Dan travels from Norfolk which absolutely shows his utter commitment. The scene is actually quite buoyant after the crappy covid years. We have young upstarts like Bathtub and Loose Ends (Jonny Price’s band), more established bands like Claylake and Psyence and mature rockers like Silverchild and Wolves in Alcatraz. You can go out every weekend and see a great line up, which is great in a city that has few opportunities and a low average salary - a big shout out to all those supporting the Stoke music scene.

4. How would you describe your style?

We are a melting pot. We are not a copy band and have so many influences that a simple description would not do us justice. We have melody, crushing riffs, hooks, anger, passion and a touch of humour - we are not afraid to take the piss out of ourselves, we are too gnarly and weather-beaten to have worry over ‘street cred’. We take from the nineties, the noughties and current music to make music that is punky, rocky and catchy.

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

We released a live demo after 3 months of getting back together and that gained us some interest and a few gigs. My, how we have moved on from that. We switched studios (to Lower Lane in Stoke  -check out their amazing work) and teamed up with a young producer, Jonny Price, who just gets us. We did an EP Black and White with him that has had tracks played all over the place, and we are about to release a few new tunes and ultimately an EP that we have once again recorded with Jonny. The songs and production are ‘sick’ in the great Jonny’s words

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

As mentioned before the latest tracks will be out in October, but we have another studio date booked in December for another few recordings. You may be asking, ‘why the rush?’. The answer is because we are old and likely to die before we have got all of these tunes out of our system. Honestly, we write constantly and Colin has been writing and sequestering away more great tunes than most bands produce in a lifetime. We will lift bits, rework and rewrite stuff alongside all of the  new stuff that we start off with jams in our disgustingly filthy rehearsal room. We are never satisfied, and Jonny has encouraged us to pull apart and dig deeper to concentrate on the song.

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

Plans are to move beyond the narrow confines of the local cities and start picking up slots with established acts around the UK. We will see how this year goes, but the plan is for a series of dates culminating in some of the smaller festivals next summer

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

We want people to hear how good we are.  We are not after massive fame and fortune (but it would be nice), which is not realistic for most bands today thanks to streaming services etc. But to be able to play our music and get people to hear it is our short term goal. If you want to offer me six figures to sign to your label, then we will consider it, of course.

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

We are on all major streaming platforms (ahem!) including Spotify, iTunes and Amazon. Bandcamp is a nice one too, as we get more pennies per track and if you are lucky enough to see us, Dan always has a box of merch with some exclusive extras!

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

What we would like is for them to say , jeez where have these guys been for the last 30 years? They won’t forget the songs, the hooks and riffs are too darn catchy, the Leaf earworm is going to get you one way or another!


Modernized rockers HOUSE OF NOW has three album's under their belts, with their most recent just coming out titled "Monodrone". A tour is also in the works! The band chats of their music, tour, and other plans ahead.


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

House of now began around 2014 when Brendan (Guitar) and R.J. (Bass)began writing music. From the ashes of multiple different bands came the early stages of House of Now. After a series of member changes the band settled on drummer Nathan Warren. Most recently House of Now has added John Rucks on Rhythm guitar. 

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

The name “House of Now” comes from a personal need to make our home in the moment, to take things in and not take anything for granted.

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’re based out of Atlanta, GA, US. The scene has been a little rough since the pandemic but we would definitely love to give a shout out the the bands O’Brother, Big Jesus and Whores.

4. How would you describe your style?

I would say our style is very influenced by 90s and early 2000s rock with a modern twist. 

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

House of Now has released 3 studio albums including Interloper, Light the Second Sun, and Monodrone. Currently we are making plans to promote our current release from 9/16 and are working on putting together a tour as well as some live sessions. 

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

Monodrone was just released and we plan to tour and promote that record for a while before starting work on a fourth studio album. 

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

Working on putting together a tour but no solid dates yet.

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

We really love what we do and have a great friendship as a band, we’re not 100% sure what the future holds but we know we will keep doing this with each other indefinitely.

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

You can listen to/buy our music on apple music, Spotify, YouTube and bandcamp.

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

All that we can hope people will take away from our music is being able to relate to the lyrics in their own way. This band has always been like a form of therapy for us and I’d hope we can provide that to listeners as well.


Mixer-uppers CKRAFT have a unique approach to the music they make, combining different elements and what not. Going on to release their debut album, with new music already in the works, whilst on the road during their current touring cycle. The band discusses all of this below.


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

Charles (the bandleader): I grew up listening to metal, it was the only music that would really make sense to me as a teenager. I'd spend hours listening to KoRn, Slipknot, and especially Gojira. Their album "The Link" really changed my perception of music and I still listen to it as an adult with the same passion and awe. Later in my formative years, I saw a jazz big band play live and I was blown away by the exuberant freedom that this music was projecting from the stage. Sooner or later I had to blend these genres! 

CKRAFT was born when I discovered the melodies from Middle Ages, especially Gregorian chants. These melodies were the last element I needed in order to write compositions with a strong direction. 

I met the other members during my formative years and we're all a bunch of friends as well!

There's Théo Nguyen Duc Long on tenor saxophone, Antoine Morisot on guitar, Marc Karapetian on bass and William but on drums. I play augmented accordion, which is an accordion with electronic sensors, allowing me to play synths directly on the accordion!

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

I think musicians and composers are very similar with craftsmen, in the sense that we all use noble material -for us, middle-ages melodies, the culture of jazz and that of metal- just like craftsmen would use different varieties of wood, minerals, etc. and create something unprecedented directly from these materials, combined with their art, their expertise and experience. That's why I named this band CKRAFT, along with the fact that "Kraft" in German, means strength/energy/force! And there you have it, CKRAFT, a mixture of "craft" and "Kraft"!

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 started in Metz (eastern France) and is now based in Paris (France), where the experimental music scene is just crazy!

On the same register as us (Jazz-Metal) I'd suggest checking out French musician Laurent David's trio "Kilter" with Laurent David on electric bass, Ed Rosenberg (from Jerseyband) on bass sax and Kenny Grohowski (from Imperial Triumphant) on drums. We hope to play during the same events in the future!

4. How would you describe your style?

It's a mixture of Jazz, Metal and melodic elements from the Middle Ages, especially from Gregorian Chants.

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

We released our first album "Epic Discordant Vision" in June 2022 and are starting a tour as we speak, in Germany and France. 

The best way for fans to stay updated would be to follow us on our socials (all the links are here: linktr.ee/ckraft. music), if we play in your town, the info will be in there!

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

We have new music indeed! We're taking advantage of being on tour together these next few weeks to rehearse as often as possible!

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

Oops I might have already answered this question previously! The dates are on our socials ;) linktr.ee/ckraft. music.

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

My goal is to keep this band together as long as possible. If it can be a forever thing, I'll be more than happy! The idea is to develop our Jazz-Metal vocabulary together during the years and grow old and experienced together, just like the bands we admire, Gojira and Meshuggah for example, that both have more than 20 to 30 years of career together with the same lineup.

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

Our music is available in CD and digital form on all platforms, and our merch will soon be accessible on Shopify! In any case, we'll always keep this link updated with everything: linktr.ee/ckraft.music.

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

We want the listener to feel the air thickens around him when he discovers our music. That's how proper Metal feels like, in my humble opinion! That, and the epic melodies and solos. Thanks a lot for having us today!


Modernized deathcore band AS PARADISE FALLS has been around for some time, having some music readily available with them always creating newer content to behold. They just want to continue and evolve and grow as they always have done with much else in-store too.


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

The history of As Paradise Falls go back a little bit and its a long story with lots of crazy scenarios. Definitely check out our bio if you’re interested in an in depth view but right now the band is Me (Danny, Guitarist) & Ravi (vocals) and its never been this experimental and adventurous with our goals. Keep up to date with us, you’re in for a wild ride. We are on a journey to re-define modern Deathcore.

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

I was playing a lot of Fallout 3, years ago and while I was playing it I had heard about this one part of the map that wasn’t a complete ruin. I thought that would be cool to find and saw an area called ‘Paradise Falls’ and assumed that was going to be it. Long story short, it wasn’t and it was just as awful as the rest of the areas. That sinking, let down feeling was really cool because it actually drew me further into the game.

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

Originally I'm from England and moved over to Brisbane Australia in 2009 and we’ve been based here ever since.

There’s some dope bands around Australia for sure; Ocean Shores (BNE), Conform (Perth I believe), Harroway (Sydney) just to name a few.

4. How would you describe your style?

We are modern Deathcore with an affinity for Eminem… Take from that what you will…

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

We have released Deathcore in the past but our upcoming release Madness/Medicine which is out now is by far the most out there and intense music we’ve released. Its bringing back the aggression I feel a lot of modern Deathcore has lost.

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

We are always creating new music, always pushing boundaries with our ideas. You’ll see.

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

We are looking at some Australian shows towards the end of this year… Maybe, unless we decided to go straight into the studio again…

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

We will continue to evolve and grow like we always do. We will be weirder and wilder than people would actually expect from us… We don’t think you’re ready for that to be fair…

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

You can find us anywhere on your favorite streaming services. We sell merchandise via our online store www.asparadisefalls.net.

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

Listen carefully because it will change you.


American Melodic Death Metal band Theosis released their new single album "Deadlights" taken from the band's new album "Overture of the Damned". The single was recorded, mixed and mastered by Sean Tolley at "Clarity Recordings" in San Diego, CA. The lyrics video was made by Irvan Dionisi.


Check out the video linked below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kyzgbmz3TG0


Theosis was formed in 2012 at San Diego, California by guitarist Dana Roselli. The current line up consists of John Haskin (Vocals), Dana Roselli (Guitar), Lee Burgos (Guitar), Zac Herriot (Bass/Vocals) and Nick Mafi (Drums). The band brings a unique sound to the melodic death metal genre, with influences such as Black Dahlia Murder, Children of Bodom, and Darkest Hour.


Emo post-hardcore band THE EDGE OF REASON has been around for a while, releasing content on and off, including an all new release out real soon! The band got together to discuss said release, music creativity, and much more all below.


1. Can you give us a brief summary as to how the band got together?

Long story short: Originally founded back in 2012 as a hobby band made up of four friends, we broke up at the end of 2013 because of musical differences and different opinions on how to move forward with the band. Only our bass player Dani stayed with me. Anyway I released a song (Prison Of Terror) that year under the name of TEOR. By the end of 2016 I luckily met our guitarist Billy at a show with his former band. We got along well both musically and personally and he joined TEOR very soon. After a while we found our new drummer Niko and second guitar player Alex, who became good friends and we started from scratch with TEOR. In 2017 we released our first album "Broken But Not Torn".  

2. What about the band's namesake, what does it mean and how did it come into the picture?

"The Edge Of Reason" is a good expression for the mental health issues we care a lot about and a more emotional view to the world. For us it means to be almost at the point where rationality is lost. And that's how we often feel.

3. What has influenced your sound and style?

We are a five piece band. So there are several different music tastes in the band. I grew up with more of the big heavy metal bands like Metallica, but also Led Zeppelin. My personal influences are mostly bands like Bring Me The Horizon, Falling in Reverse, but also  Twenty One Pilots and even Synthwave stuff. Billy is also into bands like Mötley Crew and Bon Jovi.

4. You have not one but two single's currently "Foolish Heart" and "One Way Ticket", tell me about these?

"One Way Ticket" is based on my anxieties. The feeling that life is rushing past you and there is no turning back. The uncertain and oppressive feeling of dying someday with the same conflicts I had from the beginning. The fear of being "incurable" and all hopes and dreams are unattainable or already behind you.

"Foolish heart"

Ever felt like you‘re losing the game against your demons?

Foolish heart is about the losing game of running from your demons. Trying not to look back and escape from the past, but ending up doing the same mistakes again and again. Alcohol and drugs serve to temporarily numb the pain while the real issues stay untouched. It’s about the great delusion of repression, to think the monster can’t hurt you if you don’t see it anymore.

5. Will these lead to an EP or album release in the future?

It wasn't originally planned, but we recently started thinking seriously about releasing an EP physically, because fans ask for it. There will be an exclusive track on it that will not be released digitally.

6. How would you say you differ from other bands and artists on the scene?

That should be answered by our fans, but they often say that they have never found a band that communicates so closely and openly with their fans. Musically we express ourselves like we feel and do not care about the genre defaults at all.

7. What do you want to achieve as a band?

It's especially important to us to reach out to those who are struggling. We love to spread our message and music to distract people from everyday life at least for a moment.

8. What does next year hold for The Edge Of Reason?

After releasing new songs only digitally in 2022 we will release a phsical EP in 2023 like I said before. We also work on getting back on the stage again and also grow our audience online.

9. Where can people find out more about you?

All our social media and stream links are listet here: https://teor.de/stream/

10. Can you describe The Edge Of Reason in three words?

Energetic, emotional, approachable.


Electronic hybrid band BODYDICERS has come together to create music that they want to share with the world. Speaking of which they have an EP out with newer music also in the works too! The band talks of their music and more all below.


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

Bodydicers are a new collective of artists and musicians working together in a collaborative environment to create fresh original music to share with the world.

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

Bodydicers means breaking down a composition and re-creating it into something different. The term beatslicing is of a similar nature though body in bodydicers stands for song structure.

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

Bodydicers were based in York. However the production team leader has moved to Nottingham recently  and set up our headquarters there. Nottingham has an amazing post genre music scene. It is a very creative city.

4. How would you describe your style?

We would describe our style as electronic hybrid or a multi genre collective.

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

We have released plenty of material on our social media. We also have just released our EP "BOSS-BATTLES" featuring Toby chaos and bosh Jarber. With us you can always expect something new and a little different. We like to keep things exciting!

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

Always! We can't say too much at present but expect some big things.

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

We are still in studio and will be for the foreseeable future. Gigs are touring for this collective will take a lot of planning as we are all based in different areas of the world.

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

All of the above and more! You will see a lot more of us as time moves forward.

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

All material can be found on our social media and all major streaming platforms worldwide. Search bodydicers and give us a listen!

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

We would like our listeners to keep an open mind. follow the beat and create a picture from their own imagination. Please send us a message through social media if you would like to share your interpretations!


Modernized metal emo band WHITE HARBOR have got a lot of songs to cone, including a debut EP out by the end of this year, with a lot more music in the works for sure! The band has plans to do some shows as well as just releasing a lot more music of course. Band members guitarist/song writer Nate and vocalist/song writer Chris do the talking with this chat below.


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

It began as a passion project after a long hiatus from writing; after I stopped being an active member of Lion I Am. I was talking to Tyler (my old friend and band mate/owner of Black Gate Records) about how much I was enjoying writing again and, how it would be nice to have a vocalist to work with. Tyler posted on a forum looking for try outs and, that’s how Chris found me. The funny thing is, Tyler and I almost forgot about Chris and, didn’t see the email for almost two weeks. I’ll tell you what, I’m so glad we didn’t forget though because Chris’s try out (which was an entirely completed Die Alone) blew me away. It was exactly what I was looking for and the rest is history.

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

I did not have a definitive group yet and, at the time, I was super into Game of Thrones so I used themed code names for the songs (e.g. The North Remembers was the OG name for Ruiner). Once Chris and I got together and we began brain storming ideas for a name, White Harbor stuck with us. The fact that it wasn’t taken by another artist in this currently oversaturated market was a huge plus for us and, it has a cool origin oof fandom. It’s funny Nate’s demo titles were all these familiar names that I didn’t realize all his demo song names were Game of Thrones references. We figured instead of naming all our songs we’d just stick with a band name like White Harbor in reference to the location in the hit series. Also Sorry for all those hoping for a Game of Thrones influenced band haha

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

Elliot and I live out in the San Diego area and our guitar player Nate who writes for us lives in Nebraska. I personally love the San Diego scene I try to go to as many shows in the area I’m in. A few I’ve seen at some the venues are Resider, Fermentor, Parasitic Existence and Dream Burglar, those guys are killing it right now.

 4. How would you describe your style?

We’re a little on the heavy side but we definitely shine on our catchy hooks. I would describe it as Modern Metalcore or Heavier Emo for those that want something more metal influenced than most emo type bands. I think Chris is spot on. It’s funny because I honestly do not listen to heavy music as much as I used to but, there’s something uniquely special about the power behind it. With White Harbor there really is no limits on what we do. The EP will actually feature a re-imagined Forever which is essentially a Dark Wave song. The future will certainly carry a lot of surprises and treasures for those who love the signature sound as well.

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

I can tell you to expect a lot more music! We’ve got a lot of songs coming soon but, so far we’re wrapping up our first EP “Forever” which should be completely out by the end of this year. For now you can enjoy our latest single “Where I’ll Be” which is on all major streaming platforms.

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

Our newest single that we haven’t released is coming out September 30th. The song is going to have a little of everything and is really close to home for me lyrically. You’ll have to wait and hear once it comes out though!

Nate - We have so many songs to be honest. Right now we’re releasing essentially the first ones we wrote together. It’s a really cool thing to see because it’s almost a story about me and Chris learning how to write together. I’m excited to drop our Forever EP this year but, I can’t lie about being overly excited about everything we have in store for you afterwards.

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

Not yet, as I said before we’re stretched out from California to Nebraska so we’re very limited in that department. But, we are not opposed to doing any local festivals or big shows once there’s demand for it!

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

Lots and lots of music. White Harbor is, at it’s core, about the music we create. Over time, we are also excited about the potential for shows, small tours, and merchandise for those who want them. Since we are so new, we haven’t pushed any physical releases yet but it’s absolutely something we are excited about doing once there’s some demand.

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

Right now our music is all on Spotify, Apple Music and we also post on Blackgate Records YouTube Channel for our music videos. You can sign up for our mailing list on our website www.whiteharbormusic.com where we will have more updates coming soon!

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

My hope is a listener interprets something meaningful from it; whether it’s what the lyrics might mean to them or how the melodies might impact them.
