WOLF COUNSEL: New Video ‘NOVA’ – New Album Release February 22, 2019

Traditional heavy doom metal band WOLF COUNSEL will release their new and 4th album “Destination Void” on February 22, 2019 via Endless Winter Label.

Release formats will be CD, LP (Limited Edition), downloads and streaming.


“The video for ‘Sugar Is Sweet’ picks up where the visual for ‘Sabotage’ left off,” Sam tells Baeble. “We see a flashback of the protagonist as a child experiencing his first feelings of love and then we fast forward to him meeting a beautiful girl that is no good for him. The temptation is too much for the young man but as the video progresses we slowly see the relationship deteriorate, ending in a break up and teasing the rest of the story.”

Donna Missal Releases “Get Well” For Valentine’s Day

Ahead of tonight’s Valentine’s Day tour klck-off in Chicago, Donna Missa surprised fans today with the release of a very personal new song, “Get Well.” Written by Donna and her two younger sisters Catherine and Kelley Missal, Donna explains the inspiration behind this moving new track.”Today can feel isolating for anyone who isn’t in a relationship or at least in a “happy” one. I wanted to put this out today to remind anybody that needs to hear: It’s ok to be alone. Respect yourself enough to get out of something toxic. You can leave if you think you should even if there’s love there. Also a reminder that Valentine’s Day is a fraudulent holiday made up by somebody to sell you shit.”

Eddie Brett returns as ‘mate’ & shares first video ft. The Office’s Big Keith

London’s Eddie Brett, formerly of the British indie-pop band and Britain’s Got Talent Finalists Loveable Rogues, has returned with his fresh new solo project mate.


“N Now I Feel Like is a song about nostalgia and past time,” Vasco remembers and recalls the heartfelt inspiration and emotion behind the track: “It’s about growing up and still longing for the innocent feeling of youth, while adjusting to the feeling, that life is a progress and no feeling is static. Written with my very good friends of the band Scarlet Pleasure and sung by lead singer Emil. I think his voice and the lyrics speaks to a memory in everybody, and the video made by Jonas Bang is associating the thin curtain blowing in the wind with how life just happens and disappears. The release on Valentine’s Day was important because it is often through childhood lovers that the memories are strongest; that is important to remember and stand by instead of regretting lost love.”
