JINJER Releases Intense Music Video For “The Prophecy”

Sticking their heads in the sand during a pandemic has never been an option for Ukrainian groove metal juggernaut JINJER. Instead of drowning in self-pity and using the current global situation as an excuse to be lazy, the band has not only unleashed the ferocious new video to their 6th single, “The Prophecy”, today, but have also announced that they will be making videos for the remaining three songs off of their critically acclaimed breakthrough album, Macro.

Terry Ohms Shares New Video, “Through A Glass”

Way back in February, Terry Ohms released the brooding high energy rock LP Cold Cold Shoulder just about a year after 2019’s Terryfirma was released. In August, he’ll release his second album of 2020, Smooth Sailing Forever. Mostly recorded during the lockdown, Smooth Sailing Forever sparkles, caresses and is riddled lyrically and moodily with signs of these very weird and worrisome times. So it goes . . .


Multi-award nominated Bring Me The Horizon will release their highly anticipated EP ‘POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR’ on October 30 via Columbia Records. The band also announced today that their long awaited UK Arena tour will kick off on September 21, 2021 at Glasgow SSE Hydro.

Continuing to push their creative boundaries, even during lockdown, Bring Me The Horizon have created a body of work that is arguably one of their most exciting, diverse, and intricate pieces of music to date. The 9-track EP includes previously released tracks “Parasite Eve” and “Obey” featuring YUNGBLUD, which have received critical acclaim and amassed over 115 Million audio and video streams combined to date. Other guests on the EP include BABYMETAL, Nova Twins, and Amy Lee from Evanescence.

Norwegian experimental-pop throat singer, Sturle Dagsland (Iceland Airwaves, Tallinn Music Week, Big Thief support) – Shares Single / Announces Debut LP

Sturle and his brother Sjur put together the record between themselves over the last couple of years, using over 40 different and unique instruments to create this sound – more details on these in the press release, but they include Zimbabwean finger harps, Armenian duduks and Norwegian billy goat horns – whilst exploring an array of different themes such as their mother’s indigenous Norweigian ancestry and Norse Paganism. To me, their sound skirts around the pop-leaning experimentalism of FKA twigs, Let’s Eat Grandma and Björk, the deathly drones of Sunn O))) and Godspeed You! Black Emperor and the ferocious intensity of Death Grips, securing tips previously from The Quietus, Drowned in Sound and Vice. Sturle’s played some pretty neat shows before too, with his first US date opening for Big Thief in Brooklyn and further festival spots at Iceland Airwaves, SXSW, Tallinn Music Week, etc.

Today, everyone knows the setlist, everyone knows the special effects.
