A man is on the prowl, expanding his tentacles to touch women; he moves with undesirable naturalness, as and when he pleases, as if he lived in another era; he does not realise that we are watching him; that the party has begun for everyone, but for him it’s over.
Emerald Sun – new Single/Video “Hellbound”
Greece’s power metaller EMERALD SUN show the first video from their upcoming album “KINGDOM OF GODS” (release date 01/28/2022). With HELLBOUND, metal heads get a first foretaste of the new album. The first video will surely not only please fans of Quentin Tarantino or John Carpenter.

Translating a club record into a breathtaking instrumental piece takes a special kind of musical talent, and French Braids is one of those gifted individuals you can entrust such a task to. The Canadian artist took his two-month-old collab with Aussie songstress George Maple titled ‘Heartbeat’, stripped it down to its compositional essentials and proudly delivered a moving piano version that takes listeners on a sonic journey that’s melancholic, yet hopeful.

BRANDON BOYD release “Petrichor”
“I come from a place in the world where the sun is almost always shining, and as wonderful as that is, it does carry with it a kind of bias towards happiness and a constant stress around well being,” Brandon explains. “The irony of course is that it’ll drive you crazy trying to be happy all of the time. There is wisdom in sadness and grief, the kind of things we glean from “walking through the valley” can’t be replicated by merely speaking or reading about them, we need to be sad sometimes and enter darkened spaces in order to be more fully realized people. When it rains in Southern California, it’s such a rare event that it almost feels like we’re being invited to embrace the dark, weep for what is lost, and then emerge new and washed clean of those old feelings that were stuck on us and starting to rot in the punishing sunlight. There’s a lyric in the song that says,
Incredibly catchy but cool new single out today from Lasse Matthiessen

“7 Yrs” really broke my heart. I haven’t seen the song’s subject in seven years, and looking back on my relationship with that person, I wanted to dial back into one specific day – the last that I saw him. It was the day I realized that I could no longer keep running back to something that was hurting me – so I gathered my things, and left without looking over my shoulder. I stepped out into the early morning sun, hopped into my old Toyota Corolla, and drove into a new phase of life. It’s now been more than seven years since that day; this song was written some time ago. But the uncomfortable nostalgia factor of this song makes it all the more gut-wrenching.
