Russian Metal Band, Tiavara, Release NEW Track
The band states: “When Silence Reigns” is a song about a spiralling descent into mental instability. A sufferer consciously withdraws himself from society out of fear of not being understood or accepted. It is about pushing away loved ones and retreating into a mental shell to avoid torment but making problems worse instead. It was inspired by and can be considered to be sort of a sequel to our earlier song “Never Silent” and books about mental illness as well as biographical facts about serial killers. The lyrics are shaped like a typical heartbreak story that could be found on social networks but with a dark twist. Musically When Silence Reigns is an emotional reflection of our lead guitarists wondering about what is it like to be completely alone and if he has any “true friends”.
Russian Baths’ Jess Rees (vox, guitar) detailed, “This song was inspired by a friend’s tumultuous breakup. The idea can apply to any situation where you wake up and say ‘how the fuck did I get here, I don’t want to be here and I don’t even know who I am’. It’s about an existential crisis.”

Rell the Soundbender Releases 5 Track “Diablo” EP on Insomniac Records
After giving the electronic scene a taste of his genre-bending production capabilities with the horror-themed thriller “Diablo House,” Rell the Soundbender unleashes his full “Diablo” EP on Insomniac Records, the world-renowned brand behind Electric Daisy Carnival. The five track collection explores and combines unexpected sounds and genres, from the latin-influenced bass jam “Baja” to the heavy-hitting, mechanical “Loboz” and the slow buildup to the murderous drop on “Heat.” The “Diablo” EP features collaborations with ETC!ETC!, Rawtek, Sliink, BLANK, Kaku and B!tch Be Cool, which complement its appeal to a variety of audiences. Rell has certainly caught the attention of Pasquale Rotellla and his Insomniac brand, which has expanded to become a destination for all genres of electronic music and is continuously evolving with the scene. Rell the Soundbender is a fitting addition to the Insomniac family, as his sound is uncategorizable but seamlessly crafted, and certainly not for the faint of heart.
The inspiration for the “Strangest of Ways” came by way of long time fan, Zoe Schofield. Zoe lives with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which means she doesn’t have the ability to travel and explore. Talking through ideas for the shoot, Lucy asked Zoe if there was anything she’d always dreamed of doing but hadn’t been able to do.
Following the tour for her second album Work It Out, Lucy noticed a steady stream of tweets from Latin America, and the unlikely statistic that geographically her music was most popular on Spotify in Mexico City. Inspired by this news, Lucy offered her fans in Latin America a deal: “If you book me a gig, I’ll come and stay.”

Anna von Hausswolff shares haunting track “The Truth, The Glow, The Fall”
Magic, as old as humanity itself, is the primordial answer to the threat of losing our own presence in the world, the fear of oblivion. From magic, the most fascinating, mysterious, and enchanting stories are born, but also the most obscure and fatal ones. Dead Magic: this is the paradox chosen by Anna von Hausswolff to open the doors to disturbance and anxiety. A title that embodies disorientation, an unsettling suggestion of which nothing can be known and that, by choice of the artist, will not be further explained.
