WILDERNESS HYMNAL Release New Song
WILDERNESS HYMNAL has released the stunning track “I Buried My Teeth” via Alternative Control. The song is from the upcoming split album with DUNCAN EVANS “Until Liars Fear You”. The album will be released on November 5th via Trepanation Recordings.
Javier Wallis of WILDERNESS HYMNAL comments:
“Demons are elliptical. We gain ground, sometimes watch them drop out of sight in the rear-view mirror… and suddenly find ourselves encircled again by the same teeth. Often, the teeth that haunted our fathers, and their fathers, and theirs…”
BULLET TO THE HEART UNLEASHES VIDEO FOR NEW SINISTER SINGLE “HEATHEN”!
Following on from the success of their previous, most recent releases – the compelling “Tortured Pleasure” and the impassioned “Birth Of A Tragedy” – Chicago-based rockers Bullet To The Heart introduce their darker side with their latest, sinister single “Heathen”! Showcasing its fast-paced and aggressive nature, “Heathen” takes no steps back and lets the quartet’s sinister side arise. Heavy riffs accompany singer Audrey Queen’s croon, ultimately creating an atmospheric composition, as the lyrics tell a story about the decision between fighting your demons or joining them, while this theme is embodied in the accompanying shadowy and chaotic video, which presents dark imagery to match the menacing vibe of the song as well, where Queen wears one demon horn to represent the decision to embrace her darker side.
NTO and Monolink release their powerful collaboration “Beyond Control”
Since last year, NTO has been unveiling new tracks, and making each and every one of them a step closer to his album, like diving stages. Also, his covers evolve according to each step, it’s like diving into an unknown land, that gradually and slowly reveals the theme of the album: «APNEA». Each single is an opportunity for an unexpected collaboration : Meute was invited to cover “Zig Zag”, Sofiane Pamart reappropriated with his piano “Invisible”, and Paul Kalkbrenner – the artist who gave NTO the vocation of techno – made him the honour of an already cult remix. The album APNEA was inspired by a meeting with Arthur Guérin, the Freediving Word Champion. As they spoke, they found similarities between his diving and daily training, and the way he makes music : They both need to be totally immersed, this allow them to feel close to their feelings and be completely cut off from the world.

“‘Martyrize’ was written, a few years ago, in a surge of anger and incomprehension after news broke out of abuse suffered by a seven-year-old girl at the hands of her father and stepmother in the eastern townships, Quebec,” the band says. “The circumstances of her death sent a shockwave through Canada and authorities ordered a public inquiry to shed light on how child protective services could have failed so miserably, in this particular case, even though they were apprised of the situation well before her death.”
