Rockshots Records – Feel The “Revival” w/ HILLTOPS ARE FOR DREAMERS New Music Video + New Album “In Disbelief” Due Out March 25th
Hilltops Are For Dreamers will be releasing their debut album “In Disbelief” via Rockshots Records on March 25th. The album itself is a world of extremes and vastly different from the band’s musical past. It blends influences from post-hardcore with acoustic blues melodies, progressive structuring, heavy riffing, a dash of black metal along with exploring electronic and cinematic paths. The record is meant to be a journey from a gloomy emotional state to a possible healing point through the process of realization. It is divided into three parts, Shadows, which is the dark unfolding of the path, Overturn, where the growing consciousness leads to the hope of a better self, and Awakening, which depicts a moment of revival and prospective remedy. For the album’s mixing and mastering, they teamed up once again with Steve Lado at SL Studios.

NO TIN GODZ To Release New Album
Heavy rockers NO TIN GODZ will release their self-titled EP on April 8, 2022.
The trio are a powerhouse of groove rhythms, soaring melodies and distortion. From “I Walk Alone” to “Hell Yeah” their energy never falters. Forging a full sound drawing influences from traditional metal such as BLACK SABBATH, to the heavy of ROB ZOMBIE, and melodic style of GHOST, NO TIN GODZ deliver a heavy modern twist with a rock ‘n’ roll edge. The epic impact of the intro riff in “I Walk Alone” establishes the hard-hitting intensity NO TIN GODZ produce. Melodic commanding vocals and intricate guitar leads, along with rhythmic experimentation, show the clever manipulation of dynamics across the tracks which cultivate charismatic moods. “We Are Zombies” combines NO TIN GODZ energy with a darker atmosphere. While “Just Before Dawn” ventures into a greater focus of guitar riffs and licks, with a raw sentiment portrayed through the chorus.
NO TIN GODZ’s unyielding spirit storms through the album. Exposing all sides of the human condition with great enthusiasm, the new EP is a model of pure, high voltage heavy metal.

Listen to Eve’s Twin Lover’s new single “Josie” via Glide Magazine
Stop Sending People To Kill Me is due later this year. ETL’s Tim Flood had this to say about the track’s origin: “I was watching a Steely Dan cover band with a friend, and after they did “Josie” he blurted out, “That’s who I want – Josie, with her eyes on fire.” I’ve had a hard time settling into romantic relationships, and started thinking, maybe I’m searching for a mythical woman (Josie), who doesn’t exist.”
A foundational member of beloved ‘90s German noise rock outfit Ulme, and current/founding member of sludge/doom outfit Treedeon, Demons Are Scared is the first solo album by ARNE HEESCH, the record also featuring his Treedeon partner Yvonne Ducksworth. After two albums with Treedeon and a third one currently in the works, life changed for the two in 2020 and 2021; things went quieter, more focused, and private. So did these songs – dawning towards a new urgency, gaining a new life. The two reworked them and added two more – the intense “Treeprayer,” which was written on the day of HEESCH’s father’s death, and “The Glowing,” which especially deals with starting over again and the unconditional dedication to follow one’s own paths. “The Glowing” is an older song which was released as the first track when Ulme reformed in 2005 after six years of hiatus and thus illustrates a new beginning as much as it has a historical reference attached to it.
