With a few cymbal hits, “Want It All” – the searing leadoff track from Dree Leer’s debut record, Throw Hands – dives headfirst into a dirge of heavily distorted guitars before increasing to a punk-tinged rocker of breakneck speed featuring hauntingly melodic vocals and lyrics about desiring more and not settling for less.

Tomorrow, Baroque-pop, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer Reid Jenkins shares his debut solo EP, A Beautiful Start. Working closely with mixer-engineer Jake Lummus, Reid wrote, arranged, orchestrated, and co-produced all the songs, as well as performed many of the parts on the recording. The four tracks act as a snapshot of his various internal dialogues as well as his polymath abilities.


Speaking on the track, Cokas states:

“When I was in middle school I used to rush home after school and watch MTV and VH1 with a bowl of cereal before my parents got home. Shows like Jersey Shore, Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory, and Rob & Big were always on… so I watched them. At the time I was big into skating, so Fantasy Factor had all the elements in a show I could ask for.”

Produced at JUNO Award winning studio Echoplant Sound by veteran producer Matt DiPomponio, our new track, “Telescope,” was inspired by those first-time experiences of going out and drinking, battling through the gauntlet that is a high school house party. Eyes like a telescope watching your every move, making you question every action and decision.

Orla Gartland is a “Zombie!” Rescue Ranger in Cinematic New Video

Orla shares: “I directed this video with my best friend Greta Isaac. It’s the weirdest video idea we’ve ever had, I kind of can’t believe we made it. The song is about the frustration of being with someone who can’t express their emotions, someone who suppresses everything they feel until one day it all comes to the surface; absolute chaos. In this video I’m a self-appointed Zombie Rescue Ranger, roaming through a quaint English town collecting the (rare) tears of zombie boys – and in a quest to save rounding the zombies up to set them free. Yeah, weird. The song topic is heavy but like the track I wanted the video to feel energetic and light – that kind of juxtaposition is really interesting to me! Making this video was so much fun.”

OUT OF NOWHERE: Knotfest debuts “Blind Crow” video by Iranian djent/prog adjacent metalcore outlaws

The oppressive regime of the Islamic Republic of Iran made heavy music illegal inside the country, and metal bands often get arrested for their endeavor. However, regardless of the risk of being imprisoned, Out of Nowhere has actively been releasing music and playing live shows across the country for more than a decade.

Out of Nowhere evade persecution to showcase their brand of heavy perseverance


Inspired by American filmmaker Wes Anderson known for his symmetry, eccentricity and distinctive narrative style, the visual opens up with a dirty run-down apartment that reveals a lonely Joseph drinking intercut with a montage of blurry film. Black bravely gives viewers a glimpse into the life of a hopeless romantic experiencing love lost while he stumbles around his apartment. The nakedly honest pop-rap track is the perfect soundtrack for this widely complex visual that effortlessly captures Joseph’s raw & emotional inner struggle to cope with betrayal. As the story continues to unfold, Joseph finds himself fully clothed and submerged underwater fighting to stay afloat – a visual eerily similar to the way Joseph feels inside.

Mad Genius Behind Nicolas Cage’s Insane NETFLIX Film

JIU JITSU has been dominating the rankings ever since arriving at the end of March. With Netflix’ customer base of over 200 million subscribers, Dimitri predicted right that there was going to be a great number of them intrigued by the prospect of seeing the famously eccentric actor Cage wielding a staff as a team of mercenaries and martial artists battle against extraterrestrial invaders. The movie is based on a comic of the same, which was co-written by Dimitri, and has been a big hit for Netflix, as it made it to the number four movie on Netflix’s Top Films chart, and is in the number five spot on the streamer’s overall chart (which includes both TV shows and movies).

Dimitri would love to share how he made the film (and a heavily special effects film at that) at a 1/10th the budget of the movies he is beating on Netflix.

JIU JITSU aims to satisfy the millions of martial arts, comic & science fiction fans across the globe with world class martial artists joining Cage for formidable, no-holds-barred fight sequences set in exotic Burma. Not since MANDY has anyone seen a Nicolas Cage character quite like this, with Cage starring in JIU JITSU as a martial arts legend set to save the planet against an alien invader…yes you heard that right. Cage stars alongside Tony Jaa (Fast and Furious 7, xXx: Return of Xander Cage), Frank Grillo (Avengers: End Game), Rick Yune (Fast and the Furious) and world’s top martial arts artist Alain Moussi (Kickboxer: Retaliation).
