The band discusses all of this plus more.

No Phace project was founded early 2020 as a platform for artists to come together as a collective to create collaborations and release them. 

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

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 in York, North Yorkshire. there are some amazing bands from from the county. The list would be endless to be honest! Top five (no particular order or genre) Howl and the hum, the family ruin, glamour of the kill, hutchi, Kritikal, silk stratosphere and more...

4. How would you describe your style?

How we would describe our style..  that is a tough question as there are so many different genre hybrids that we create. However we are a mixture of electronic music, bass, hip-hop, rap metal, rock, dubstep drum and bass.

So far No Phace project has released twelve collaborations which can be found on all major streaming platforms. What can be expected from us? We will just keep on coming right back with fresh music. Better and better!

Live performances will be considered once we are free from this pandemic.

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

Heavy metal band MARBLE have an all new album titled "S.A.V.E." out in 2021! The band goes on with discussion about this release and how they came together, and hoping to play live sometime!


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

Marble was an idea of bass player Daniel, that creates with some local musician and ensemble to play prog and power metal. Soon Omar and Jacopo joined and with Paul they completed the lineup. There were a few changes behind the mic during the years. We published first demo, then in 2008 our first full length A.t.G.o.d., an Ep in 2010.

Omar, Daniel and Jacopo were friends since young age, from the same town, Mortara, Daniel met Paul in University and asked him to enter the band. Eleonora met Jacopo and Daniel through a group of historical re-enactment. Norman is the last member who joined and a fellow teacher of Paul in music school.

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

In the early days of the band we used to rehearse at our first drummer’s lab. He’s a marble worker and crafts headstones and tombstones for some local graveyards, so we always were surrounded by marble slabs and tombstones. It was a natural idea to choose that name for the band, plus we think it really fits the mood of our style.

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 was bornin Mortara, a small town outside Milan and still the headquarters lives there. The metal scene around the town was very active during the last years of the ‘90. And the first of the 2000, but lately a lack of places where playing live was possible create a hole in the scene. Around Us there are our friends Heavenfall, Toliman, a great prog metal band with female vocals like us, Sylpheed, and some rock acts. Lots of cover band also!

4. How would you describe your style?

Even of we’re fan of lot of metal genre, we find some difficult to label one of our new music. Surely we had a lot of power influences in the past, but we think our new album is a good combination of some prog elements, aggressive and heavy guitar rhythms blended with lots of vocal melodies and keyboards shades. If you want some known name we can say that Evergrey and Nevermore were the first, but also some band like Ocean of Slumber and Darkwater comes to mind. I think one of the interesting thing is to see or read what people think of our music genre.

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

As told before, we have made a full length album of course!

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

We’re going to release through sliptrick records in February our brand new album called “s.a.v.e.” where we combine the concept of sins and virtues with human behaviors. We tried to find our own approach to the subject: not religious, more down-to-earth, probably a bit cynical and dispassionate. It's a theme we found tremendously appealing.

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

Not yet, since we’re in the middle of the pandemic, and we’re focusing on the promotion for the new album

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

We want to make our listeners enjoy our music and hopefully like it, also through some videos that will come out with the album. And whenever it will be possible we’d like to play it live of course!

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

The new album will be available on all digital platform like Spotify, Apple music, Amazon music and so on. It also will be available as Digipack CD with the amazing artwork created by the finish master Jan Yrlund of Darkgrove Design. First place to support us is our shop in our website www.marbleheavymetal.com that will open in January, or through our label!

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

Tricky question. We have different approach on every song, since the theme of sins and virtues bring different sensation. We hope that listeners will enjoy the whole album with the lyrics and dig deep with us in the human behavior. Hopefully the voice of our singer Eleonora will be their guide through this journey! Thank for your time! Cheers from Marble


Seven years to their namesake, Ruins Of Elysium have released three full-length album's to date, including their most newest and recent calling "Amphitrite: Ancient Sanctuary In The Sea". An array assortment of 12-tracks that span of what is said to be eight different languages. The assortment of languages includes; English, Chinese, Latin, Spanish, Japanese, Portuguese, Hindi and more. As the band puts it, it is simply a round the world like trip from the comfort of your ear sockets. 

Tenor being the styling of vocalization provided from Ruins Of Elysium's frontman Drake Chrisdensen, where his styling takes on a classical approach, with a vocal range that intertwines the countertenor and baritone voice types. In short, it is one of the highest voice types for a male vocalist to perform. Drake here does flawlessly, combining not just good tenor stylistics but with the genre choices of epic symphonic metal, this album brings forth the likes of folk metal as well as some Celtic folk as well as traditional metal. It combines an ethnic element from not just vocal chords but the instrumentals too, as they are used to contemplate to numerous cultures and folklore's from across the globe. 

Very much all of this can be heard within the first couple of tracks including opening track “Alexiel An Epic Lovestory”, following up with “Queen of The Seven Seas”, and then “Belladonna”. Each play well into one another. Vocalization provided is done quite well, whilst the instrumentation is superb and catching. Some portions provide a rather fast paced effort, whereas other parts keep a steady beat that keeps the music together, but has it sink in making it sound gripping yet soaring at times.

Other notable tracks off this release likely consist of such as “”Atlas”, Book Of Seals”, and “Cathedral Of Cascades”. These resemble such an epic presence that is purely majestic yet heavy through and through. It is the sound that Ruins Of Elysium has always been able to craft and create since their forming so long ago. This album is merely a treat for many in all shape and form of its creation. 

If an epic tale of adventure is what you seek within the form of music; then perhaps seeking the likes of Ruins Of Elysium is for you. Otherwise this band is without a doubt one that will not be forgotten but cherished and remembered for many years to come. 


Alternative electronic psychedelic rock band SKAGS is a band like no other! Since forming they have a debut album, with a follow-up in the works! They just want their music to be heard and want to make it out there, playing out on the stage too! The band talks of all of these matters and more.


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

SKAGS history starts in 2017 as a cover band with Sotiris (bass), Kostas (guitar) and Spyretta (vocals). After a few changes in the line-up, the initial band members were joined by Christos (drums) and Christina (keyboards). After that, the band decided to record their first album “Digital Cage of a Cursed Generation” which was released on November 5, 2020. 

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

The band’s name began as an acronym, formed by the first letters of our member’s names at that time. Since then, inevitably, some members left and other came, but in the meanwhile we decided to keep the name. Actually, the word “skag” is slang for recreational drugs, and such we consider our music, intense and highly addictive.

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 located in Athens, Greece. The music scene here is mostly focused on mainstream pop, folk and hip-hop hits. But there is also a popular underground scene building up lately. There are quite a few Greek bands like Planet of Zeus, 1000 Mods, Puta Volcano, Villagers of Ioannina City (VIC) etc. who have established a strong fan base with dedicated followers even outside Greece.

4. How would you describe your style?

We think that the best way to describe our music would be “Alternative Electronic Psychedelic Rock” with a mix of theatrical, atmospheric vocals, progressive guitar-fueled soundscapes and euphoria-dripped synth lines.

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

Back in 2019 we released our debut single “Screaming in my bed” along with the official video clip. This was our baptism of fire as a band. Short after we began the process of releasing independently a full album, and, after a whole year of rehearsals, recordings and hard work, we finally made this dream come true. Our first album is called “Digital Cage Of A Cursed Generation”, which is a metaphor for the contemporary Digital Era. We like to consider our music as a rock-fueled thrill ride from start to finish. As it progresses through each track, we portray our take on a variety of social issues we deal with today, such as the environmental crisis, drug addiction, police brutality and even loneliness, alienation and depression.

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

Hopefully, there are always new projects on the horizon. Our most ambitious plan at the moment is composing a second album. We learned a lot form our first endeavor, and we want the second one to be even better. Unfortunately, though, due to the Covid pandemic we haven’t been able to get together and start working collectively on our ideas. So, at the moment we are focusing on promoting our existing work and hope that, soon enough, will get back to our rehearsal room and get down to business. 

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

We love touring and playing live in front of our fans. We miss that during the covid-epidemic. As you know, there are no safe predictions for the future of live music shows. So, we really hope that the world gets safer and everything gets back to normal as soon as possible.  

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

Our main plan is to get back together as a music family and play our music. We are looking forward to writing and recording new songs for our second album. And of course, getting back on stage!

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

Our music is currently available in all digital music platforms, including YouTube, Spotify etc We also have a Bandcamp page, where one can purchase our album or any of our tracks if they wish to support us further. To get notified about the band’s activity, one can also like our Facebook page and follow us on Instagram, where we also post some additional content.

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

We really want to make a truthful connection with every listener. At first, we aim to get their attention through our music, as the sound slowly builds up, alternates and becomes more elaborate. On the other hand, through our lyrics we strive to “discuss” with them various controversial topics, which we think of as highly important. This “conversation” is our ultimate goal. If, after indulging in our music, any of our listeners’ point of view might slightly change in a positive manner, we’d consider our job done.


Loud as hell artist MARC SMITH says that's how his style sounds at least to him. He has been busy writing new songs, working on all new music of course. But before the new content is released, an EP has been released, including an array of single's released as well. With that, Marc himself goes into chatter about his music, and how he got started.


1. Please tell us about your music history. 

I think I discovered my passion for music in the middle 90's with bands like Green Day, Nirvana or Nofx, and for that reason I started a punk rock band with my school mates. We dropped out of school soon after that as all we wanted to do is rehearse, write songs and play shows all over the world. 

We released 4 records and toured the world with bands like Strung Out, Samiam or No Fun at All. I've been in bands for Over 15 years, and decided to move to London and start a project of my own writing songs from a different perspective. I guess I could say that now I talk about what I feel instead of what I think. 

2. What's the origin of your name?

In Spain you get both family names. My original name is Marcos Escoriza Smith as my Dad is originally from Spain and my mum was born here in UK. 

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

I'm living in Acton Town at the moment, which is located in west London. I was kinda hoping to find a quiet place so I could focus on my songwriting, so there's no music scene where I live. But I do see there's a lot of music communities here and I have witnessed a couple of very good artists. 

4. How would you describe your style?

When you're in a band it's easy to describe your style. When you're a solo artist it becomes a bit more difficult. I would like to define my music as songs you can play in a quiet room with just a guitar but also adding a band and sound as loud as hell.

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

Ever since I've been songwriting on my own I released a 3 song EP containing Box In A Grave, which is my first single in this new project. Moved up from Spain  to London and here I've released 6 more singles, including Brother, which is my latest release. 

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

Writing new songs is what I love to do the most. So I'm always working on new music. Right now there's 2 new songs that I finished not too long ago, and just can't wait to record them. And even though they're quite different from one another, they complement each other. 

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

Unfortunately there's nothing planned out right now for 2021, but I'm quite sure that's gonna change soon. I like to stat positive.

8. What plans do you have for the future as an artist?

I just want to keep doing what I love. I'm not the kind of person that thinks too much about the distant future, it's enough work to accomplish tomorrows goals nowadays. 

I guess I want what everyone wants. To live doing what you love for as long as possible. 

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

You can find my music on all streaming devices under Marc Smith. 

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

That he believes me. 


Witherfall release new single "Another Face”, off their new album “Curse Of Autumn” out March 5, 2021.

Post-rock, alternative metal music project simply titled SIDUS was made by Spiros Olivotos was influenced by God is An Astronaut, Explosions In The Sky, Deftones, and Hans Zimmer. Merely put he says to always create, express and explore all new horizons. He would go on to release a debut EP, and all new music is being written currently along with other projects that he's working on as well. Find out about all of this when he talks of this in the chat below.


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

Sidus is a Berlin based post-rock instrumental one-man band formed by bass player Spiros Olivotos (obviously me xD). Originally coming from Athens (Greece), I was mostly a bass player, (or) guitar player and composer for several underground rock and metal acts until 2012. During this year I decided to focus on post – rock instrumental music, and on my studies on Geology. After some years of experimentation and pre-production, Sidus finally hit the studio (P.K. Productions, Athens) to record my debut EP with the title “Seasons Reversed”, which was released on the 6th of November 2020.

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

“Sidus” has a couple of explanations. The root of the word in Latin basically means “star” or “constellation”. Though it can be interpreted figuratively as the “night sky” or a “season (of the year)”. Personally I connect the name with the word “star”.

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 based in Berlin (Germany). The music scene here is not so prosperous for rock bands, especially instrumental post – rock bands. However there is band that broke through playing post – metal music. “The Ocean” is one of the best post – metal bands worldwide. Even if their music is not instrumental, their compositions influenced a lot of artists in the field of post – rock // metal scene (including myself).

4. How would you describe your style?

It is for sure cinematic and falls into the post – rock // post – metal genre. There are many elements from progressive rock music and from shoegaze too. In addition my favourite band is Deftones. You can definitely recognize the influence that they have in my song-writing and to my musical approach in general.

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

The debut EP “Seasons Reversed” was released during November 2020. It is an instrumental, cinematic, post – rock // metal collection of five compositions, which create an intense though melodic and nostalgic atmosphere. Influenced by God is an Astronaut and Explosions In the Sky but also Deftones and Hans Zimmer, this EP combines dynamic guitars with soundtrack vibes and memorable melodies. All songs from the EP have videos which serve as visual representation of the music (find all videos here: https://bit.ly/3lElBff). In the future I am planning to experiment with more heavy/extreme sounds but also with softer indie vibes, while trying to explore new horizons with more artistic videos.

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

Yes. I am always creating new music in between all the projects that I am working in. I am preparing already my next release and planning to start recordings in the beginning of 2021. I am very excited about it and can’t wait to share new content and music with my fans!

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

Not yet. This project initially started as a personal one-man side project to express and explore my musical borders into new genres. I must admit that creating a full band and playing concerts is a tempting thought that cannot go away, since I released this debut EP. As you can imagine Covid-19 does not make it easier!

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

For the time being, I will only focus on releasing new music, build a loyal fan-base and maybe find an independent record label to support my work. Perhaps in the near future a full band will be created and perform the songs live and tour.

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

You can listen to my songs in all streaming platforms. There are the ones that I personally use more:

Bandcamp: https://sidusofficial.bandcamp.com/

Spotify: https://spoti.fi/2L5mCAs

Youtube: https://bit.ly/2V2TzP6

Apple Music: https://apple.co/2zscqw8

Soundcloud: https://bit.ly/3bbRS8g

You can purchase a digital copy of my debut EP and support Sidus on Bandcamp : https://sidusofficial.bandcamp.com/album/seasons-reversed

Currently I am working on printing “Seasons Reversed” as a digi file CD for a limited amount of copies. Soon a full merchandise site will be created on Bandcamp.

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

I want every listener to empty their mind from their everyday concerns and try to focus on the melodies, the atmosphere and the energy that is building as the songs progress. It is the best way to fully experience this type of music (and/or the video clips). Doing so, you will come closer to the mind-set and the mood I had while creating the pieces. Music is an experience which help us to learn more about ourselves, make us realize our emotions and express them easier. It is so personal! I hope my listeners to have the same cleansing experience that I had while creating this album.


Hard rock punks IN PERIL don't have a style but IF they had to pick it would be what was first said at the start. With that said, the band has just released their debut single, with a whole lot more being released slowly but surely! They want to get their music out there and shared by anybody really! The band goes into further discussion about all of this and more below!


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

We’re a four-piece – Hayden (Vocals & Rhythm Guitar); Matt (Lead Guitar), James (Bass Guitar) & Gary (Drums). Hayden, Gary & James met somewhere near 15 years ago, playing in another band (Dry ‘Til Friday).

All these years later, they wound up getting back together with another Lead Guitarist (Sam) for a short time, before eventually settling with Matt as the permanent Lead Guitarist – who fitted right into the role, at the right time.

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

We were originally going by another name (52i) for a while, before deciding that we wanted to change it up to something with a bit more...substance? We spent ages throwing ideas around, before coming up with IN PERIL – which we ended up settling on.

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 all based in and around the Northampton, UK area.

All four of us have been in various bands around the area for years – Northampton has historically had a great local music scene. Sadly, with the crazy year 2020 has been it’s been hard to keep up with who’s out there doing what. We do love ‘The Trophy Life’ though – if you like it heavy, check them out!

4. How would you describe your style?

We wouldn’t!  None of us really feel that we slot into any one place, style-wise.  We play stuff which ranges from ‘hard rock’ through to stuff with a more ‘punky’ feel.  At the same time, we love to get dark and moody now and again! If we like the way a song’s going when we’re writing, we just go where it takes us!

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

We only just put out our debut single – ‘Bad Dreams & Battering Rams’ at the end of October 2020. We’ve been working on that song for around a year and we finally recorded it.  We spent ages mixing and mastering it and we’ve got to say – we’re mega proud of the end result!

Lyrically, it’s a bit of a moody run through the turmoil that mental ill-health can bring.  The music adds to the dark feel that often comes with this subject. We’ve also recently put out ‘Your Decision’.  Much punchier than Bad Dreams... it’s short, sharp and to the point.

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

Absolutely!  We spent a day recording several of our tunes at Fit Dog Studios in Northamptonshire, a few months ago.  Since then, we’ve been working on them – mixing and mastering and we’re slowly releasing them out into the wild! We’re constantly writing new stuff (mostly via Zoom calls lately!) and we do love the occasional cover tune. 

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

Let’s be honest - 2020 has been shit for live music.  We haven’t been able to get out and gig for around a full year. So we’re looking ahead.  I think we’re lined up to play some festival spots around Hull in July 2021 and we’re looking to line up other shows – which hopefully we’ll have details of soon!

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

Rock Stardom, obviously! We just want to get out there and share our tunes with anybody who’ll listen – if that’s just the bearded old guy that’s been propping up the bar for the last 30 years or packing a venue full, we don’t really care.  Live music is where it’s at and we just want to be a part of that!

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

We have an active Facebook presence - https://www.facebook.com/IN.PERIL.Band

You can hear tunes as we release them on most popular streaming services.

For example – we’re on Spotify at: https://open.spotify.com/artist/67Dv7xDY0QQuhT7Ocfjld9?si=uMlBLh-bRg-1T0oK_uM9sA.

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

Try not to find yourself trapped in a room alone with Gary.  Always important...


Better Noise Music recording artists, The HU debut  their ‘hunnu rock’ cover of Metallica’s “Sad But True” today, along with a music video.   The track is a unique take on the beloved classic that has over 142 Million streams on Spotify alone.

The HU’s distinct style allows listeners to hear this song in a completely new way. The band added traditional Mongolian instrumentation along with their signature style of throat singing and swapped out “Sad But True”’s English lyrics for their native language, Mongolian. The same distorted guitar melody from the original song helps drive the song forward, but the originality and musical prowess of The HU’s distinguishing sound makes this track stand out on its own.

Angelspit's ninth album "The Ignorance Cartel", is the latest addition to the Angelspit extensive catalog. Across this assortment of what is 14-tracks comes an array of material that is solid yet catchy. Take for instance opening number "Eat the Children", it has a build up that creates edginess. It’s heavy yet plays out like a lot of industrial types of material does, being very catchy yet upbeat as well. The same goes for a lot of the other tracks that come off this release like "Ammosexual", "Love to Watch", "Don't Say", "Comply or Die", and "Live Fast or Die",  capture just this weird but unique noise of ultra sound that has brutal beasts that could be heard within the walls of all goth club setting. It's industrial techno beats straight out of the 90's cyberpunk scene, with bits and pieces of distortion and mixes that make even the production value sound crisp yet dense. Pretty much the entirety of this release is mid-temp electro punk tracks, that has the fans of Angelspit devouring every inch of it. Each and every one of the tracks can simply be felt with the beats and have you dancing along whether that be in your sit or on the dance floor if you posses one. Otherwise Angelspit’s latest addition is just chalk full of working’s that will make it a piece of work, that will have you leaning in for more to keep you tame yet relaxed as well.


Duo band Petals And Thorns have not one but two albums under their belts. Their debut album "The Broken Mirror", released back in 2014 is where the band left things. Taking some time to focus upon themselves and what not, they would go on to write and record material later on leading up to what is their follow-up sophomore album titled "The Maid And The Blacksmith" released this year that is 2020. Perhaps the 2020 year of downtime for everyone, had them get into the urge of creating music once more? Perhaps so or perhaps not. Nevertheless though, Petals And Thorn's newest offering, offers 8-tracks, opening up with "Digital Religion", a rather captivating tune that sets the album straight away. Whereas "Through The Shadows" and "Echo Chamber", capture a more toned down effort. Sounding more doom and gloom as it were. Think if Evanescence had returned to their roots sounding more goth and experimental that is how these two tracks sound much like really. Their style is a lot like theirs except adds the added flare of dark wave and alternative making their style more upset yet mellow.  Other tracks like “Lost In A Dream”, “Behind The Curtain”, and “Burning Within”, each have their uniqueness but do sound much alike. It’s not a bad thing, just more or less has such a smooth performance structure done by the duo with an added production value, that makes this sound stunning if not amazing at times. Whilst it may have taken some time for it to be done and released, it is an enjoyable piece for the ears, not just originality but it done from the get go that makes Petals And Thorns soulful and fun to hear from any release released.
